More than 29 per cent of the pu

during a semester; must be making
an honor grade of 90 per cent or
more in co-operation, interest and

Secretary of War to Be Asked
to Discharge Troops Speed
ily and to Give Six
Nebraska and Iowa are respond
ing seriously and by the hundreds to
assist the thousands of young
Americans who risked their all at
the call of their country. Petitions
asking that soldiers be discharged
as rapidly as possible and given suf
ficient pay to assist them over the
period between discharge and a pay
day in civilian employment are com
ing to The Bee office by hundreds.
You also can do your bit. Clip out
:he petition in today's Bee. Call on
your neighbors and secure their sig
natures and mail it to The Bee. We
will forward them immediately to
the secretary of war in order that he
may understand the wishes of the
American people in regard to the
disposition of the American army.
The secretary of war would doubt
less gladly pay the soldiers a reason
able amount, were it in his power, to
assist them in their time of need. He
does not have the authority. Con
gress when he requests this action
would doubtless refuse his reqaest
as unnecessary were he alone in the
request With the united plea of
thousands of Americans backing him
in the movement the war secretary
will be able to present his arguments
in a forceful fashion.
In Omaha alone demands for ci
vilian relief have increased one-sixth
since the signing of the armistice ac
cording to the reports of the Red
Cross. Very few Nebraskans have
been granted discharges and the
number of relief cases is certain to
increase as the boys return home.
If this is true in Nebraska, the
heart of the most prosperous section
of the country, consider the suffer
ing that is certain to exist in the less
fortunate sections. The American
soldier sacrificed his business future,
his life, his all, when his country
called. Can you not give five
minutes' time and a postage stamp
to give him what he rightfully de
serves? Heavily loaded transports are ar
riving on home shores daily. With
each passing day the suffering in
creases. Do your bit today and
rush a petition to The Bee. We will
do ours and rush it to Washington.

EYE strain is one of the evils
which movie artists have to
contend with. It is not unusual
for a movie star to be unable to
work for several days after a ses
sion of night work in a glass studio
under the glare of the Cooper
Hewitts. Without good lighting
there cannot be good photography
and good lighting and photography
are essential. No matter how versa
tile the cast, how strong the story,
how expensive the stage settings,
if the photography and lighting are
bad the production is classed as bad.
The Cooper-Hewitts are run about
on casters and there are probably
a half dozen of them trained in all
their dazzling brightness on a
studio set. And then when 'close
ups' are required and the star is
obliged to gaze soulfully almost
into the very glare of the lights, it
will readily be understood that the
strain on the eyes is sometimes

pain! Pain in the back (lumbago)
or hips, shoulders, arms, legs or feet
(rheumatism or gout). This rheu
matism is the result of an uric-acid
explosion within, probably following
excessive use of meat or beer
or over-exertion and over-heating. Swollen hands, ankles and feet are
flue to a dropsical condition, often caused by disordered kidneys. Natu
rally when the kidneys are deranged the blood is filled with poisonous
uric acid, which settles in the tissues of the feet, ankles, wrists or back
as uratic salts; or under the eyes in bag - like formations,
i It is just as necessary to keep the kidneys acting properly as to keep
the bowels active to rid the body of poisons.
Uric-acid poisoning and rheumatic pains can be conquered and expelled
by taking a little " Anuric." This is the recent discovery of Dr. Pierce,
and can be had at all good drug stores. If you want a trial package

For Skin Torteres
Boat worry about eczema or other
skin troubles. You can have a clear,
healthy skin by using Zemo, obtained
at any drug store for 35c, or extra large
bottle at $1.00.
Zemo generally removes pimples,
blackheads, blotches, eczema and ring
worm and make the skin clear and
healthy. Zemo is a clean, penetrating:,
antiseptic liquid, neither sticky nor
greasy and stains nothing. It is easily
appiicd and costs a mere trifle for each
"Plication. It is always dependable.

PUT STOMACH III
Says Indigestion Results from
an Excess of Hydrochloric
Undigested food delayed in the
stomach decays, or rather, ferments
the same as food left in the open air,
says a noted authority. He also tells
us that Indigestion is caused by
Hyper-acidity, meaning, there is an
excess of hydrochloric acid in the
stomach which prevents complete
digestion and starts food fermenta
tion. Thus everything eaten sours
in the stomach much like garbage
sours in a can, forming acrid fluids
and gases which inflate the stomach
like a toy balloon. Then we feet a
heavy, lumpy misery in the chest,
we belch up gas, we eructate sour
food or have heartburn, flatulence,
water-brash or nausea.
He tells us to lay aside all digest
ive aids and instead, get from any
pharmacy four ounces of Jad Salts
and take a tablespoonful in a glass
of water before breakfast and drink
while it is effervescing and further
more, to continue this for a week.
While relief follows the first dose,
it is important to neutralize the
acidity, remove the . gas-making
mass, start the liver, stimulate the
kidneys and thus promote a free
flow of pure digestive juices.
Jad Salts is inexpensive and is
made from the acid of grapes and
lemon juice, combined with lithia
and sodium phosphate. This harm
less salts is used by thousands of
people for stomach trouble with ex
cellent results. Adv.
