Few Yearly Memberships Are
Left and All Rooms Rent
ed; Waiting List
Is Large.
Officials of the Omaha Athletic
club announced yesterday that all
life memberships had been sold. The
number of life memberships is lim
ited to 300 and for 10 years they are
transferable, or in case of death
can be willed.
' One of the prominent officials of
the club said: 'These memberships
are not only valuable for the club
privileges their owners will enjoy,
but they are valuable as an invest
ment. I do not believe that by the
opening night it would be possi
ble to induce the holder of a life
membership to part with it for
Life Cards Valuable.
In this connection he said that re
cently a life membership in the
Chicago Athletic club was trans
ferred for a consideration of $9,700
and that there are 2,800 men on the
waiting list of that club. He said
there was no reason why life mem
berships in the Omaha club should
not advance rapidly in value.
. The yearly memberships, which
ire .limited to 1,500, are being check
rd up today. A close tab is being
kept on the applications as they
:ome in, as to their order, as it is
thought the limit is about reached.

Of the 68 living rooms in the
club, 32 are rented to club members
for permanent quarters. There are
32 applicants on the waiting list for
permanent rooms. There will be 34
rooms left for transient members

Pete Wendell, prominent Omaha

New York, Nov. 2. President Wilson's
address before congress was the one out
standing feature of today's stock market,
trading evincing no pronounced trend prior
to the publication ot the message on the
news tickers.
Interest centered mainly In the presi
dent's earnest plea for a modification of
ante-war conditions respecting the rail
roads and that group made immediate re
sponse, secondary as well as standard
shares advancing 1 to 214 points after an
early period of hesitation.
Wall Street chose to Interpret this anil
other features of the president's message
as a strong Indication that the admlnistra
lton Is In no degree committed to govern
ment owenrshlp of transportation and
utilities. Bankers expressed themselves In
complete accord with the chief executive's
views regarding the Importance of deter
mining without delay the amount of the
tax levies for the next two years so as ta
facilitate the country's domestic foreign
Apart from the rails, the market regis
tered few changes of Interest. United
States Steel and kindred Issues were steady
to firm, motors and oils denoted conflicting
speculative sentiment and coppers, leathers
and specialties ended at mixed gains and
losses. Shippings were active and strong
at the beginning, but lost ground later to
the accompaniment of reports that the
proposed sale of Mercantile Marine tonnage
to this government might encounter serious
opposition from British Interests. Sales
amounted to 476,000 shares.
The only feature to bonds was the ac
tivity of a few industrial Issues, the gen
eral list easing. Liberty fourth 414s con
tinued to sag, breaking to 96.60. Total
sales (par value) aggregated $11,950,000.
United States bonds were unchanged on
Chicago Grain and Provisions.
Chicago, Dec. 2. Official estimates that
300,000,000 people in trans-Atlantic coun
tries were depending largely on food con
servation In the United States to avert
hunger had a bullish effect here today on
grain and provisions. Corn closed firm
l!4c to 214o net higher, with December
and January both $1.2814 to $1.28. Oats
finished lie off to lo up, and provisions
at an advance of 10c to 60c.
Throughout the day, the dominating
factor In the corn market was the food
administration statement as to the need
of huge supplies to meet the food shortage
In Europe. In this connection, traders took
particular notice of the avowal that 200,
000,000 persons had been added to the
foreign bread line which the United States
was begged to serve. A bullish construc
tion was also placed on a statement by the
secretary of agriculture that he could see
no good reason for a drop In prices. Pre
dictions that the coming United States
wheat crop would be a record breaker
failed to exert any lasting contrary Influ
ence on the trade.
Oats averaged higher In sympathy with
corn. Receipts were not heavy, and coun
try offerings to arrive were light.
Firmness In the hog market together
with the strength of corn lifted provisions.
Packing interests appeared to lead the

New Tork Coffee.
New Tork, Dec. 2. No material change
was reported In the coffee situation here
today with the trade waiting for a final
decision from Washington on the petitions
for a removal of war time restrictions.
Nothing definite had been learned regard
ing the prospects for such action up to the
usual closing hour, and the local spot
market remained entirely nominal so far
as any general range of quotations was
concerned. It was rumored that a few
smaU lots of Rio 7s might possibly be pur
chased at 14 c, but other holders were
said to be asking 16c. Sales of Santos 4s
were reported in the cost and freight
market at 20,76c, London credits, steamer
shipments and the official cables showed
well maintained prices In Brazil, Rio be

Don't close your eyes to the warn
ing which nature gives, when un
sightly pimples appear on your face
and other parts of the body.
Not only are these pimples and
splotches disfiguring, but they lead
to serious skin diseases, that spread
and cause the most discomforting
irritation and pain. Sometimes they
foretell Eczema, boils, blisters, scaly
eruptions and other annoyances that
burn like flames of fire, and make
you feel that your skin is ablaze.
When these symptoms appear on
any part of the body, take prompt
steps to rid the blood of these dis
orders. And the one remedy which
has no equal as a purifier is S. S. S.,
the purely vegetable blood medi
cine, which has been on the market
for more than fifty years. It is sold
by druggists everywhere.
If you are afflicted with any
form of skin disease, do not expect
to be cured by lotions, ointments,
salves and other local remedies, as
they can not possibly reach the
source of the trouble, which is in
the blood. Begin taking S. S. S. to-
j day, and write a complete history of
your case to our chief medical ad
1 viser who will give you special in
structions, without charge, write at
once to Swift Specific Co., 441

Commerce High Cripples
Win from Atlantic 7 to 0
After the shutout handed the Ma
roon Squad by South High in their
annual grid meet, November 22,
Coach Evans took his squad to At
lantic to meet the fast team there.
In the opening minutes of the sec
ond period, the locals took the ball,
a delayed pass from South to Snygg
with interference by Nicotero, en
abled the runner to place the oval
behind the opponents' goal. Kline
kicked goal. Score 7-0.
Atlantic came back in the second
half with a rush, but could not over
come the Commerce stone-wall.
Commerce was in possession of the
ball for the most of the remainder
of the game. Only once did Atlan
tic come near scoring, when by a
series of off-tackle plunges they had
come under the shadow of the Com
merce goal, only to be held for
downs. Commerce took the ball
and began her march.
Omaha to Have New Plant

rubber content of old tires, rubber
shoes, and other discarded rubber
goods will be treated chemically
and the crude rubber separated
from valueless elements by a pro
cess of chemical destruction of for
eign substances.

Care to Cover Coughs and
Sneezes by Individuals Ex-
pected to Prevent Plac- v
ing Another Ban. ;i;
"Most of the cases of influenro
now being reported are nothing
more than bad colds," said Health
Commissioner Manning. "Every
body is thinking of the 'flu' and the
minute they get a headache or lit
tle fever they decide they have the ;
'flu.' This is the season of the year
when colds are most prevalent
People shouldn't get scared as soon
as they get a cold and imagine they
have the 'flu.' Of course, it is wise
to take care even of a cold."
Reports of a number of cases of
influenza at several of the Omaha
schools are being canvassed under ;
direction of Dr. Manning with a
view to closing these schools.
"We are making a thorough can
vass," he said, "and if the number '
of children ill is above a certain per
centage in any one school that
school will be ordered closed. We
believe, however, that many children
are being kept out by their parents
through fear that they may catch
the influenza."
Dr. Manning notes a "flare-up" of
the "flu" in Omaha and says that
the same condition prevails over a
large part of the state. He has great
hopes of the efficacy of the individ
ual campaign by which an effort is
being made to get each person tft
be his own preventative by cover
ing up coughs and sneezes and by
keeping in the open air and keeping
houses well ventilated. i
Liquor Hid in Piano Bench,

A piano bench containing seven

cating liquor.
Simon was discharged when he
proved that the whisky had been
purchased before the dry law went
into effect, and his liquor returned.
