Algiers and were expected back at
Marseilles between 6 and 7 o'clock
It is believed that the aviators
were compelled to land on the Bal

as they made the trip to Algiers in
five hours. A 300-horsepower - air
plane was used.

URGES FIGHT ON
(Continued From Feee One.)
That we urge promotion of edu
cation along the lines of social
purity and social hygiene by par
ents, physicians and properly
qualified instructors in schools,
colleges and universities.
It seems that only by slow proc
ess of agitation, education and leg
islation will this greatest menace
to the human race, even to genera
tions yet unborn, be eliminated.
Mothers Should Head.
Difficulties of imparting sex in
formation occupied the greater por
tion of the discussion.
"The campaign of education
I should begin with mothers, not
children, some one volunteered.
"Mothers of America never yet
have sufficiently done their duty in
this matter," asserted Major Leader.
"That's why the government must
nuw undertake this work. Long be
fore the age of 16, the age ( con
templated in Senator Sears' bill,
children have information which
never should be so improperly im
parted to them, from their com
panions in school."
Major Leader distributed ,to the
clubwomen, booklets issued for
use of parents in this connection by
the government. More can be ob
tained by application to the State
Health department, venereal disease
division, at Lincoln.
Prudery Swept Aside.
"Prudery and secrecy have been
swept aside in dealing with the
social ' evil in the army and navy
during wartime," said Major Leader.
"The soldier so infected was a clog
in the wheel. Peace makes the
work of controlling the social evil
more important. The nation can
not stand this tremendous loss of
Major Leader quoted astounding
figures on the prevalence of the
"great war plague." "Not even
physicians knew four years ago

Senator Outlines Bill
Senator Scars outlined needs and
sailent features of his bill, Senate
File No. 36, which makes it unlaw
ful for anyone except a parent or
guardian to impart sex education to
children under 16. The bill is op
posed to government and social
workers' policies and the clubwo
men are not in favor of the Sears
bill. Mrs. Draper Smith and others
present told the senator so.
Judge Howard Kennedy 'brought
the message that a bill is now be
ing drafted by social workers cov
ering all needs for venereal disease
legislation that can be foreseen.
"Public opinion is now aroused
to the menace of this country and
to the necessity of suppressing ve
nereal disease, so that desirable leg
islation will probably soon be en
acted. The contemplated legisla
tion includes first, recognition of
the infectious nature of social
diseases; second, reporting cases to
proper health authorities, and third,
placing cases under jurisdiction of
health authorities for regulation,
isolation or quarantine as neces
sary." Proper safeguards as to the con
stitutionality of such a law will be
thrown around the bill, he promised.

Five Year Federal Control
of Railroads is Necessary
To Waterway Development
W. G. McAdoo Gives Opinion That Forces of Reaction
Oppose Plan Which He Believes Will Aid in Creating
Unified System of Transportation for the
Santa Barbara, Cat, Jan. .27. W.
G. McAdoo, former director-general
and former secretary of the treas
ury, made public today a telegram
in which he urged the five-year gov
ernment control of the railroads as
a necessity for the development of
inland waterways and form the co
ordination of the railroads and wat
erways with the new American mer
chant marine. The telegram, ad
dressed to Albert Krell, chairman
of the Miami and Erie improvement
committee of the Cincinnati cham
ber of commerce, was sent in re
sponse to an invitation to attend an
inland waterways meeting today at
The message said:
"Regret it is impossible for me to
attend your inland waterways meet
ing at Defiance, January 27.
"It seems to me futile to expend
great sums of money on the devel
opment of our inland waterways un
less our government adopts an in
telligent policy about railroad con
trol. The future of waterways de
velopment is absolutely dependent
upon a government control which
will enforce the operation of the
waterways and railroads as a co
ordinated and articulated system
which will give the people the bene
fits of an efficient combination of
water and rail facilities. This can
not be accomplished under the pres
ent railroad law, which provides
that the railroads cannot be con
trolled by the government for a
longer period than 21 months after
the return of peace. Within a 21-
month period, no substantial de
velopment .of existing waterways
can be made, nor can their opera
tion in so brief a period afford any
adequate test of their values.
"Upon the return of the railroads
to private ownership,, which must be
made within the 21-month period,
as the present law provides, the
cutthroat competition of the roads
under private control with the par
tially developed waterways will ef
fectively destroy water transporta
tion as heretofore and the people's
investment in these facilities will
continue to be of little if any value.
"I have urged the congress to ex
tend the period of federal control of
the railroads for five years because
that will give us time to develop
some of the most important exist
ing water routes, co-ordinate them
with the railroads and prove their
worth as a part of a great American
transportation system. (

Boy Believed Dead L
Found by Relatives
in Time to Get Estate
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Jan. 27. Private Robert
W. Patton, former resident of Sew

ston, barely escaped being declared
dead by the Lancaster county court
and losing his interest in his fath
er's $40,000 estate Monday morning
when relatives came forward with
proof of his existence at the last
Private Patton left Lincoln May
22, 1911, and had not been heard
of until his brother-in-law, F. A.
Gehrke, 2444 Park -avenue, learned
from the War department that the
young man was at Camp Funston,
Matthew M. Patton, father of the
soldier, died three years ago in Lin
coln and left an estate of $40,000 to
his son and daughter, Mrs. Maggie
M. Gehrke. The will was later set
aside because Patton was not in his
right mind at the time.
The father and uncle had made
repeated attempts to locate the boy.
The relatives were overjoyed when
he was finally found.
Overland Company to
Adopt Profit Sharing
Plan With Employes
Toledo, O., Jan. 27. A half and
half profit sharing plan with employ
es in all branches was announced to
day by John N. Willys, president of
the Willys Overland company. Only
a fair return on the capital invested
is a provision included in the grant.
The distribution will run into
hundreds of thousands of dollars
and will be retroactive, taking effect
from January 1, 1919. The company
has 10,000 men on its payroll and
all will be affected, Mr. Willys said.
It was estimated by an Overland
official that the share of no employe
will be less than $100 a year.
Mr. Willys announced also that
the Overland plant will be greatly
increased to take care of the addi
tional volume of business created by
the purchase recently of the Moline
Plow company. Farm tractors on a
large scale are to be manufactured.

of the elections to the German as
sembly 165 social democrats, 91
contrists, 75 democrats, 38 con

22 independents, - ,
should control the railroads and the
inland waterways for a period of
five years so that they may in turn
be co-ordinated with our govern

been built at a cost of more than
$2,000,000,000 and which under ex

for a five-year period.
View Problem With Vision.
"Unless we look at this great
problem with vision and from the
standpoint solely of the American
people instead of from the stand
point of the selfish interest of pri
vate railroad owners, private steam
ship owners, private shippers, pri
vate investors, or any other single
class, we shall not measure up to
our obligations to the American
people, nor realize the great oppor
tunities and destiny that lie ahead
"The confusion of counsel about
the railroad problem, made daily
more evident by the great variety
of conflicting views and opinions
now being presented at the hearing
before the interstate commerce
committee of the senate at Wash
ington, makes it more and more
clear that the course of wisdom,
sagacity and prudence is to extend
government control of the railroads
for five years, that our inland wat
erways be developed to the largest
possible extent during that period
and that these inland waterways
and rail facilities be co-ordinated
with our great merchant marine in
an endeavor to get for American
business enterprise a fair partici
pation in the benefits of world com
Concerns Interior States.
"No part of our union is more
vitally concerned in this question
than the great states of the Ohio and
Mississippi valleys as well as those
bordering on the lakes, the oceans
and the gulf. Many of their leading
ports will continue to be starved
and their development arrested un
less they are given a chance under
the impartial control by the govern
ment of rail and steamship facilities.
"The powerful and sleepless
forces of reaction are solidly ar
raved against this plan. They will
defeat it unless the American people
are aroused to the situation. The
time is short. The matter is vital.
My earnest suggestion to you and
your associates is that you press
upon the attention of the congress
the importance of the five-year con
trol in order that the things you
want to accomplish may be brought

Washington, Jan. 27. Secretary
Lane, who has been greatly in

potash industry of the United States,
has, after many consultations with
the chief of the bureau of mines and
other' officials, decided to get be
