NEW COURSES AT
Omaha "U" Opened Wednes
day With Greater Number
of Courses Than Ever,
Due to War.
The University of Omaha open
ed Wednesday Sept. 18, with a
larger number of courses than ever
before. The war has. made many
changes in the course of study.
French is in great demand while no
German has been asked for and no
provision is being made for it
Kindergarten and primary work
is yery popular this year and many
have already registered for the
courses. Miss Emma Ghering, di
rector of this work, is a graduate
of Columbia university, and is con
sidered one of the leaders in the
One of the prominent aims of the
Bureau of Education at Washing
ton is the establishment of kinder
gartens in every school in the coun
try. To this end congress appro
priated a large sum of money, which
is being used in the preparation of
kindergarten teachers. There will
be a great demand for teachers and
the University of Omaha will meet
this need by offering a complete
course in kindergarten training. This
work will prepare for primary train
ing, also since the two lines of
teaching are so inseparable and sup
erintendents are asking for" kinder
garten trained primary teachers.
Commercial courses have never
been taught at the university before
but because of the great demand
shorthand and typewriting will be
given, both to the regular students
in the day and also to night stu
dents. Telegraphy and radio work
also will be given to night students.
These courses will be open to both
men and women.
The extension work for teachers
which was started last year has be
come a fixed part of the university.
Dean Stevenson is giving most of
his time to this work. Over 60
principles and teachers have regis
tered for Saturday morning and af
ter school hours on week days.
The following courses wilt be given
by Dean Stevenson and Miss Ghe
ring: primary method, kindergar
ten method, method in reading, edu
cational psychology, educational
measurements, scientific study of
education. Other courses will be
given by other members of the
faculty, literature, French, history,
biology and science.
The many applications for night
school work is a healthy sign of
initiative on the part of the young
men and women of Omaha. The
following courses have been asked
for and will be given if sufficient
number register for them: begin
ning French, advanced French, psy
chology, education, algebra, Latin,
Spanish, science, sociology econo
mics, history, Red Cross courses,
story telling, folk dancing, public
speaking, literature, telegraphy, ra
dio work, typewriting, shorthand,
play ground theory and practice.

HOE CARDS WILL
BE PUT IN EVERY
Hog and Cattle Census to be
Made of State by
The new message of food con
servation, "rigid economy in the
use of fundamental foods without
strict restrictions" will be carried
to every home 'in Nebraska through
the medium of home cards.
Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food
administrator for Nebraska, is hav
ing 300,000 of these cards printed,
which will be distributed through
cut the state next month.
"A card will be placed in every
home," says Mr. Wattles, "so that
Nebraskans may have constant re
minders of the suggestions of the
food administration. The Nebraska
official is working out a method of
distribution of these cards which
will insure an early completion of
"Nebraskans have always loyally
responded to every call of the gov
ernment and there is no doubt of
their response to the new method
of conservation. It is much simpler
than the methods of limiting the
consumer to specified amounts and
will accomplish the desired results
as effectively as former methods.
"With the exception of sugar, no
limits are now placed on the foods
other than people are asked to limit
their purchase to a reasonable sup
ply of sixty days. This works no
hardships on anyone. The sugar
restriction will likely be continued
for some time until shipping facili
ties are much improved."
The Nebraska Food administra
tion has another big task before it
in making a survey of the hogs and
cattle on the farms of the state.
This survey will be made by school
children and it is Mr. Wattles' am
bition that the survey will be com
pleted in one day. The date set is
"I hope that every farmer in Ne
braska will assist in making the
records complete. The school chil
dren will call upon each farmer
for information which can easily be
given. It will include the number
of hogs and cattle on the farms and
the number of each that will be kill
ed for home consumption.
"By a little preparation in ad
vance of the date, October 15, this
information can be prepared and the
blanks filled out in a few minutes
when they are presented.
"I trust that every farmer will
constitute himself a committee of
one to make this survey successful."

heart when he went to France with
the "American forces. The woman
in it" is his only sister, Mrs. J.

Seiler took the picture along with
him for good luck. Recently Mrs.
Remke received it from one of his
comrades in France. It was punc
tured by a bullet hole and stained
with blood. The accompying letter
related that Conrad had been killed

"You're in Love," at the Boyd.
ANOTHER "repeater" came back
strong at the Boyd yesterday,
when Arthur Hammerstein's
company presented "You're in Love"
to a considerable gathering of peo
ple, who recalled its merits from
last season. Oscar Figman still
heads the company, and extracts a
lot of rich humor oit of the role of
Wix. He has been coming here
for many seasons, and we hope will
come for many more, a visitor
whose welcome increases. Sur
rounding him is a group of earnest
young workers, who make the ut
most of their opportunities. Elinore
McCui ' is especially attractive in
the cute little role of Georgiana,
and her sleep-walking song, which
comes at the end of the second act,
is very well done. Virginia Watson
is dainty and charming in every way,
dances lightly and sings sweetly,
while Miss Alice Johnson puts great
vim into the role of the domineering
aunt who pretends to hate men, hav
ing only married three of them. W.
H. White's well placed baritone is
the best voice in the company, al
though Miss McCune and Mr. Brun
sen win much applause in their duet
in the second act. An eccentric
dance by Messrs. Maxson and
Brown brings forth insistent calls
for more. The engagement ends this
Greet Christie McDonald.
Christie McDonald, who leads off
on this week's Orpheum bill was gen
erously received Sunday in "Cupid's
Mirror," in which she offers four
solo numbers and several other se
lect6ns with Irene Rowan and Wil
liam Haig, Her stage setting is
sumptuous. Paul Decker and Jo
seph L. Browning get away with
most of the comedy, each having
individual styles which win. Mr.
Decker is assisted by Faye Cusick,
Marie Pavey, who has very warm
friends here, and Helen Vallely.
"The Ruby Ray" is the title of Mr.
Decker's little farce, which has to do
principally with the effects of a
convivial concoction whose name is
indicated by the title of the skit. The
ruby ray is a "wicked drink with a
kick," and it is rather cruel of Mr.
Decker to expose a small bar in
this dry community. The Decker
laugh is infectious.
Mr. Browning makes a genuine hit
in his "A Timely Sermon." He ap
pears as a sedate man of the cloth
and his w-himsicalities evoke hearty
applause. Herman and Shirley ap
pear in a novelty offering in which
the latter displays ability as an acro

Washington, Sept. 22. Review of
the action taken by Cuba since the
entrance of the United States into
the war to help the cause of the al
lied nations is made in a statement
from Gen. Mario G. Menocal, presi
dent of Cuba.
General Menocal stated that
Cuba's declaration of war against
Germany was inspired by "the
haughty and violent attitude in
which an imperialistic power, vain
of its might, attempted to impose
upon the world an intolerable domi
nation" and "the noble ambition of
Cuban people to co-operate with all
their strength and with all their re
sources in the sacred defense of the
liberty and sovereignty of all people
against th'e malignant and menacing
No opposition to the unanimous
declaration of war was voiced by
any faction of the Cuban people,
General Menocal stated.
The first action taken by General
Menocal following the declaration
of war was the seizure of a large
number of German steamships which
were held in Cuban ports. The Red
Cross was then placed on a war
To obtain necessary war funds
the congress authorized a bond is
sue of $30,000,000.
General Menocal stated that Cuba
has worked with the United States
in the conservation of food and the
production of sugar has been stimu
lated, with the result that the crop
this year amounts to 3,500.000 tons,
the greatest in the history of the
"Cuba's very proximity to the
United States," the president stated,
"and the constant intercourse be
tween he two peoples growing out
of the strong bonrl9 of gratitude
which join it with the great nation
which helped her 20 years ago to
gain her independence after long
and devastating wars and which on
two occasions, that is, after two in
terventions, left her in full posses
sion of her independence, her sov
ereignty and her laws without in
terfering with the administration of
the government, gives Cubans a pe
culiar insight into the high and dis
interested motives with which the
United States is already taking a
predominant part in the war."

Toluieeo and Tuberculosis Investigated, j
A recent statistical inquiry published by
authority of the aur ; on general of the
army on the effect of cigaret smoke upon j
the lunps Is of groat Importance. Major )
Webb has found from observation of set-
eral hundred thousand soldiers that com
paratively few nonpm kers (27 per cent)
show signs of chronic bronchial irritation:
most smokers, on the other hand, and all
clearet Inhalers, show such signs. To
bacco smoking has an inflammatory effect
upon the throat.
However, the proportion of men dis
charged for tuberculosis was no higher
among the smokers than among the non
smokers. The Inhalation of tobacco
smoke, apparently, does not cause or aid
tuberculosis. It comes as something of
a novelty to find that tobacco smokers
with Inflamed throats do not show more
tuberculosis than non-smokers with nor
mal throats. It Is now thought that In

has been the doctrine, but, being the re
