representatives to the camps to furn
ish information which will enable
the camp commanders to assist dis
charged men in securing suitable
employment after leaving the army.

In his next letter, dated Uctober

Tells of Last Battle. ,
"On the ninth, two days before I
was wounded, Jimmie Austin was
carried off the battlefield severely
wounded, after making a wonder
fully gallant fight. He was without
doubt one of our best officers and
the entire regiment is anxious as
to the outcome of his wounds. No
news had come concerning him uo
to the time I left."
Information from the war depart
ment brought word of the death of
Captain Austin, but up to this time
nothing has been received concern-

Judge Decides Ten Pounds
Butter Too Much for One
Police Judge Britt decided that 10
pounds of butter was too much but
ter to buy at one time, and as a
result Jim Wilson, negro, 1905 Cum
ing street, will spend the next 30
days in the city jail.
The manager of the Marsh &
Marsh Grocery Co. testified in po
lice court Wednesday that Wilson
had ordered the butter in the name
of one of the Marsh customers, and
then peddled it about the street.
Wilson was later charged with
stealing four automobile tires and
was bound over to the district court
on a $1,000 bond.
FOR Thanksgiving day, matinee
and night, the demand for seats
at the Orpheum has been great,
and two capacity houses will spend
part of the day with vaudeville. The
bill is evenly balanced with a num
ber of very clever people. There
are two headliners and two special
features on the program. Charm
and daintiness characterize the skit,
"A Ray of Sunshine," presented by
Gladys Clark and Henry Bergman
as one of the headline features
Another stellar act is the
miniature 'musical comedy, Ihe
Girl ort the Magazine," with Florie
Millership and Charles O'Connor as
the principles.' Next week one of
the stellar acts will be the dramatic
offering, "Where Things Happen."

Pomaine come with a singing and
dancing skit entitled "The Two
Original Boston Beans." They finish
with "The Dance of the Allies" pre
sented in full military costume.
Wiesser and Reeser, billed as "The
Tan Town Follies," have an excel
lent idea of comedy values. "Daly's
Tangled Army," a hilarious military
novelty in wiich five men take part,
completes the vaudeville program.
"Leave It to Jane" will play an
other double-header at the Boyd
theater today, and the joys of At
water college and its ultimate tri
umph over Bingham will be tpld for
the jollification of everybody.1 It is
one joy riot from first to last with
lots of real fun and enough noise to
keep the balance even.
William Hodge is coming to the
Boyd again W Sunday for a stay
of five performances in "A Cure for
Curables," his latest and many say
his best comedy. It is a typical
Hodge play, and from advance in
quiry the engagement will draw out
new attendance records for the year.

Father McMenamy Says Same
Readjustment Is Necessary
in Educational Institu
tions as in Business.
"The War and the College" was
the subject of an address delivered
by Father Francis A. McMenany,
president of Creighton university,
before the members of the Rotary
club at their Monday luncheon in
the Fontenelle hotel Wednesday. !
Father McMenany said that the
educational institutions of the coun
ts have many problems in the re
construction following the war just
as the business institutions of the
country have. He spoke at length
upon the Students' Army Training
corps and of the very effective
work accomplished by these young
men during the short period of their
organization. He said that "immedi
ately after the signing of the armi
stice "the college men began to ask
the question, 'what about the S. A.
T. C " That question was -uppermost
in our minds until last night,
when the colleges were informed
that a plan of demobilization .would
follow soon. The question then
arises: Will there be anything per
manent as a result of government
He said in referring to university
military training in colleges: "This
would be desirable. A reasonable
amount of military training can be
worked in the machinery of nearly
every college, with benefit to the
men themselves and to the country,
building up a vast reserve of military
material which was so lacking at the
outbreak of this war in every coun
try except Germany."
Criticizes Smith Bill.
Referring to the Smith bill now
before congress to create another
member to our cabinet to have fed
eral control of education, and for
which one appropriation of $100,
000,000 is for the education of teach
ers, Americanization, medical wel
fare of children and for the abolish-
men of illiteracy, he said: "It has
many fine points and many weak
points, just as any bill for centraliza
tion has. It will be a splendid thing
as far as Americanization goes, but
on the other points I think it is a
better plan that they be handled by
the states rather than by the federal
"It looks like a step towards the
political control of education. The
National Educational association of
this country has been working hard
to keen education out of politics.
Here the power will be under one
man, and he will be very powerful
politically, and in every way Influ
ential.1 We have been fighting Ger
many because of centralized power,
and we Americans believe that the
provisions of the Smith bill are put
ting too much power in one man's
