Member of General Medical
Board Speaks to Missouri
: Valley Medical
Dr. Franklin Martin, member of
me advisory commission of the
Council of National Defense and
chairman of the "council's general
medical board of Washimrtnn w.
in Omaha Thursday evening to ad
dress tne medical society of the
Missouri Valley.
Dr. Martin spoke on work of the
volunteer medical service corps.
"We are listing the doctors of the
country through the volunteer med
ical service corps. Ten days ago
we sent out 90,000 applications.
When I left -Washington to come
. here, we had heard from 40,000. This
service is voluntary, enabling us to
act as a clearing house in deter
mining what doctors should be
taken for active service.
""The doctors, as a class, arc the
most patriotic in this country. If
the man-power of America had vol
unteered as did the medical men, we
would have had an army of 9,000,000
men at the start."
. Casts No Reflection.
Dr. Martin made it . plain there
was no reflection upon medical men
who stay at home. During the eve
ning he .gave out a statement signed
by Edward P. Davis, president of
the volunteer medical service
corps, and .himself urging against
any movement that would threaten
.to impair a medical man's local,
state or national standing because
he refused to enroll in the army or
navy or the volunteer medical serv
ice corps. -
The 'Statement also advised that

needs of civil communities and in
stitutions and that medical men who
serve in this capacity are helping to
win the war as much as those who
are fiehting on the front.
Dr. Martin emphasized the im
portance of the everyday speech of
the individual. He said: woe De
tide the prattler who is privileged
to raise his voice at this time when
the' great searchlights of history
will have been turned on these few
tuper years of all the centuries."
Treating Shell Shock.
Doctors in attendance were great
ly interested in a paper read by Dr.
Gershom H. Hll of Des Moines on
"Psychic Treatment for Psychopath

the varieties of dementia.

the nervous disease is familiarly
known. Physicians are of the opin

Hun Press Bewails
American Reject ion
Of Peace Proposal
Copenhagen, Sept. 19. The Ger
man press generally regards the
American answer to the Austrian
peace note, taken in connection
with the speech of Foreign Secre
tary Balfour, as final proof that the
allies seek the destruction of the
central powers, their peoples and
the dismemberment of their terri
tory. The Berlin Vorwaerts (socialist)
bitterly declares that the American
answer and the utterances of Sec
retary Balfour compel the conclu
tion that the entente will not con
sider peace by agreement. "'There
is but one thing left for us victory
or destruction," says the Deutsche
Tages Zeitung.

ranch to his two sons, J. E. Cox of

The foregoing is truly a gem in
the face of the- fact that democrats
everywhere admit that republicans
in congress have been more unani
mously behind the president than
have the members of his own party.
This is proven by the fact that at
the time Senator Hitchcock arose in
the senate and criticized the admin
istration that a democratic senator
in answering the Nebraska man said,
"We have got to admit that the re
publican minority in this congress

the president in what he has wanted
to carry on this war than have the
members of our own party in this
Mr. Jamieson's letter, besides hav
ing a tragic tone to' some extent

if "democrats and patriots get to

hardship on anyone."
Is this an admission on the part
of the democratic national treasurer
that he thinks democrats are not

By Progress of Omaha

the meeting of the Farm .Mortgage

with the wonderful progress made
in this section and finds that Omaha
even exceeds the many good things
which he had heard of it in the east. J
Since the National Life has had an
office in Omaha for over 30 years,
and has large investments in Ne

naturally has a sympathetic interest
in the material prosperity of Omaha.
While here Mr. Russell was the
