Omaha will observe Thanksgiving today more quietly than usual.
Depth of obligation all feel because of the war's end wilf.be expressed
at numerous union church services that have been arranged. The
public has been invited to attend and give expression to the,ir grati

Few of the lighter amusements will be indulged in. War conditions
have changed all these, and the day will be given over almost entirely
to observances in the homes. One foot ball game and varied bills at
the playhouses will supply flavor to the day's observance after the
dinners and gatherings are Over.

IN FLYING PARADE
GUIDED BY RADIO
Device Invented by Nebraska
Man Used to Control Great
Number of Machines
San Diego, Cal., Nov. 27. While
thousands of spectators stood thrill
ed in the streets below, 212 air
planes from the government flying
fields near here passed today in a
great air parade to commemoTate
the achievements of America's air
men in France. While the majestic
sweep of the machines, including
practically all classes used in train
ing in this country, and the "stunts"
of eight daring fliers appealed per
haps most to the crowds, what most
interested Lieut.-Col. Burwell, who
is in charge of the fields and who
planned the affair, was the fact that
every machine returned without an
accident. The flight lasted more
than two hours.
The machines were controlled in
the air by radio-telephonic communi
cation. The apparatus was invented
at Rockwell Field, near here, it was
announced, by Col. Clarence C. Cul
ver, and it was also said that this
was the first time in the history of
aviation that so many planes were
directly controlled by voice.
It was estimated that the 212 ma
chines covered a total distance of
134,000 miles, remaining in the air
an aggregate of 424 hours.
Colonel Culver is the son of Gen.
J. H.' Culver of Milford, veteran of
the civil and bpanish-American
wars and former adjutant general of
the Nebraska national guard.

Kaiser Must Be Executed,
Declares Bis'hop Quayle
President Wilson Expected to
Announce Personnel of
Delegation in His Ad-
dress to Congress.
By Associated Press.
Washington. Nov. 27. President
Wilson's plans for attending the
peace conference are all matured
with the exception of the day and
hour of sailing. His departure, how
ever, is certain early next week.
It is entirely probable that the
first announcement of the personnel
of the American delegation will be
made in the president's address to
the opening of congress, which will
be delivered Monday or Tuesday.
At the same time the president may
take occasion to make something in
the nature of a statement to the
countryas well as to congress, on
his going to Europe, something no
other president has ever done.
The most important anbuncement
that has yet been made in connection
with the official plans for the peace
conference came today. It was that
there would be absolutely no cen
sorship on the news which the Am
erican newspaper correspondents
send back home. At the personal
request of President Wilson both the
British and French governments
will entirely relax all censorship
on all American newspaper
dispatches telling of the delibera
tions. Furthermore, to facilitate the
transmission of news to this country
the government, through its recently
acquired control of the cable lines,
will give news a preference in trans
mission second only to government
official business. News will take
preference ovver all commercial bus
iness on the cable lines.
George Creel, chairman of the
committee on public information,
also announced today that the com
mittee's machinery in Paris would
exercise nothing whatever approach
ing a censorship on the dispatches1
telling of the progress of the con
ference.. All the committee's facili
ties, Mr. Creel said, are to be de
voted to helping the American news
paper correspondents get .the news
back home. The committee's offi
ces in Paris will be used as a head

Boys in Luxemburg
Have No Turkey for
With the American Army of Oc
cupation, Nov. 25. (By Courier to
Nancy, Nov. 27.) The indications
are that the American, army of occu
pation will spend Thanksgiving in
their present positions on this side
of the German frontier.
The Americans already have start
ed a search for the luxuries of Lux
emburg for Thursday's dinner. In
the absence of turkeys they are
casting their eyes at Luxemburg's
chickens.- geese, ducks and pigeons.
The German officers also were
fond of chickens and geese and con
sequently the farmers and villagers
have but a few on hand.
Altogether it appears as if the
front line men will have frozen beef
as the principal viand for Thursaay,
providing nothing happens to the
frozen beef special crossing the new
ly laid tracks in No Man's Land.
Nevertheless the mess sergeants
have assured the officers and men
that nearly everything is on hand for
the regulation Thanksgiving dinner,
excepting the turkey and cran
berries. ' Everybody figures that
things could have been worse, es
pecially if the armistice had not
been signed. ' ' ,

Hope, widow of Lieutenant Col
onel Hope, who was killed during
the war. Colonel Hope was a
nephew of tjio earl Of Rosebery.
Mrs. Hope is running inde
pendently and one of' her planks
is a demand that William Hohen
zollern, former Germain emperor,
be brought to England to be tried
for murder. . . .
St. Louis, Nov. 27. Bishop William A. Quayle of the Methodist
Episcopal church, speaking at the City club luncheon today, declared
that any peace commission of the American people which does not
make the German people pay to the uttermost farthing is not a peace
commision of the American people and that "until such time as the
kaiser is tried and executed for murder, justice will not have room to
sway in the world."
"That is not hate," he said. "Itis justice. The man who does not
assenf'to that procedure has a mutilated moral sense, or he has no
moral sense to mutilate. Justice never hurt any man and the man who.
does not talk justice has no place in the world. .
"We did not fight the kaiser. We fought the German people and
we must in fealty to the world hold the Girman people to strict ac
count for their indecency
"Germany won't be put together again in the next thousand years
and the less put together it is, the farther it will be apart, which is
"Kings must be sentenced, not in the name of England, nor of
Belgium, nor of Roumania, but in thename of the hunan race, so that
never again shall they rise to menace mankind.
"This is America's day because the whole world has gone Ameri
can. We've never seen the whole world. The men of the world are
in this convocation.. There is no more 'verboten.' Germany never
again can intimidate. The world has become a thoroughfare,-T,he
road is for anybody if he chooses to walk as a man.
"Kings can pass as hod-carriers if they like; All the dreams of the,
Declaration of Independence have come true plus. You can no more
. return to yesterday with your Monroe doctrine than you can go back
1,000 years to seize the stars.
"You cannot crawl back into our American shell and stick out your
head with 'none of my business.' The world owns the road and if
we play the turtle we will have to get otit of the road of get run over."
U.S. FLEET TO BE
PEACE IS SIGNED
Half of Navy May Be Placed
in Pacific; Squadron .Is
Likely to Be Kept in
Washington, Nov. 27. With the
passing of German sea power, the
impelling strategic reason for keep
ing the main strength of the Ameri
can navy massed in the Atlantic
ocean, no longer exists. Naval of
ficers here anticipate, therefore, that
the fleet will be divided when the
war emergency has passed, and sub
stantially one-half of the main
fighting strength of the navy will go
into a reorganized Pacific fleet.
Secretary Daniels indicated today
that a general rtarrani,ement of the
fighting ships was to be expected.
Hj gave no inkling of what is r -der
consideration, however, his
statement having brought out both
questions when he announced that
Vice Admiral Sims, commanding
American naval forces in European
waters would be nominated to the
rank of admiral when Admiral
Knight, commanding the Asiatic
fleet, retires next month. Rear Ad
