U.lV. V. DRIVE
, IN OMAHA NOW
Beyond Added Quota With
out Using Extended
Child Labor Laws
Not Strictly Kept,
- W. H. Swift, legal representative
of trie National Child. Labor coni-
Sittee will meet a ' number of
maha oeople interested in social
i ... ' . . f i
Aft rB r:.. weitare movements, at an lniormai
QniCialS EXpeCt City 10 GoLccference at the University club
r . . . . t '
today at noon. Mr. iswitt is on nis
way to Lincoln for a somewhat
similar conference, and at the ur
gent request of some of the leaders
of social service here accepted the
invitation to stop for this meeting
Among, those who attend wjll be
representatives of the school board,
the juvenile court, the welfare board
and other organizations especially
concerned in child labor." The pur
pose of the conference is not o
create any new institutions or start
any new movements, but simply to
inform the persons particularly in
terested as to the present progress
of the! movement for the abolitkn
of child labor.
In response to a question Mon
day evening, Mr. Swift stated that
during the war there has been no
recession so far as child labor leg
islation is concerned. No state Las
repealed any law on the subject.
"Thcr has been, however," he
said, "a decided and quite unfortu
nate letting up in the matter of
ine united war work campaign
in Omaha is nearing completion.
Despite the fact that the national
drive lias been extended until Wed
nesday, it is not thought that this
city will find it necessary to utilize
the added 48 hours. Air workers
were concentrating their efforts in
soliciting $10,000 an hour through
out Monday, which, if successful,
"will mean that Omaha has reached
its highest goal in the drive.
: This city last Friday Went over the
top in the initial quota of $325,000
:and immediately began the solicit
ing of the 50 per cent added quota,
as asked by the national committee.
There ?s no 4oubt but that this goal
will be "topped." '
" Nebraska, however, requires con
siderable "speeding up" to place it
among the 100 per cent states. The
drive. throughout 'the state has been
; hindereit in many ways, not the
? least of which was the rain on Fri
;day and Saturday, both of which
.('ays had been designated as official
'. United War Work days, and on
iwhich the greatest portion of the
state had hoped to raise its quotas.
"But there's-no doubt but that
Ke'braska will go over in tne time
allotted," says O. II. Menold, state
;director of publicity. "This state
' has always come forward in 100 per
.cent manner, and now when the
Sliced is greatest it certainly is not
.going to fail. However.the various
communities must get together and
pull hard before success can be reg
istered." The- following subscriptions of
$100 or more were reported in
Omaha Monday morning: '

Grain Prices to
Grain Exchange Men
Grain prices are going to continue
- high so long as the tremendous for
eign demand maintains. When that
.will ease no person can tell.
' The foregoing information was
J-brought to the Omaha Grain ex
change today by Charles T Neal,
head of the Omaha branch of the
United States Grain corporation.'
Mr. Neal had just returned from
New York, where he was called to
attend a meeting of all vice presi
dents j6f the United States Grain
corporation. In his talk at the Oma
ha Grain exchange he told the mem
bers that everything indicates that
the foreign demand for not only
grain, but all foodstuffs will be "as
great, if hot greater, than during the
war. This being true, he anticipated
the maintenance of high prices for a
long time. - ' '
As to facilities for handling grain
and foodstuftVto, Europe, Mr. Neal
says 'they are excellent. A large
- number of ships will be required to
bring home 'the boys and in going
to Europe these ships will be load
ed with grain, provisions and such
; other goods and material as may be
' required by the allies. Not only this,
but a large number, of new vessels
are being put afloat, and these will
immediately go hjto the carrying
business, loading for Europe.
With the present conditions main
taining " and indications that the
Unitrd States must provision the
world for a long time, Mr. Neal sees
' no reason why there should be any
material drop in the prices of food
