Ukcls, who open a
the Drandeis tonight, are an aggre
gation of soldier minstrels, one of
the most unique groups of enter
tainers ever seen, and the "pep,"
spirit and dash that was character
istic of the A. E. F. will be present
tnroughout the snappy minstrel
show that will be given. "Every
Star a Service Stat" is right, for
tney are a galaxy of stars that put
their stuff across just like the shells
into Hunland, only the explosions
will be of laughter and mirth, no
heartaches or sighs.
An attractive bill of variety greets
Empress patrons today. A feature
will be the laughing novelty offered
by the Joe Boganny troupe, six
male athletes ot assorted sizes and
weights who have one of the fun
niest comedy acrobatic novelties in
vaudeville. Logan, Oonn and Ha
zel have an offering on the sketch
order. Corp. Joe Nathan is an en
tertainer and has a way of telling
stories about army life that creates
no end of merriment. Coley and
Jaxon have a comedy offering re
plete with entertaining patter.
In grace and charm and ability
the Barr Twins, who appear at the
Orpheum this week, are much like
the Dolly Sisters. They are es
pecially pleasing in such dance num
bers as "The Old-Fashioned Walt"
a.d Ihe Uriental fan Jango.
Another headline attraction is "The
Vocal Verdict, presented in two
scenes, by Maud Earl, a singer of
distinction. Her repertory covers a
wide range, from opera to simple
ballads. Bessie Remple in "A Child
of Childs," a mystery farce by Tom
Harry, is a conspicuous feature of
the bill. The sale of seats for Gus
Edwards' 1919 song revue, which
comes next week, is brisk.
"Mavtimp " the nhfnnnipna1 mn-
sical success, is to be seen at the I
Bovd next Sunday night for the
week. The story is romance at its
most improbable, and there is an
adroit stage fallacy, if you will, in
the ending. The cast includes John
Charles Thomas, John T. Murray
and Carolyn Thomson as the featur
ed artists, and Russell Lannon,
Howard Marsh, Esberg Wheeler,
Ezra Walck, Alfred Hemming, Jen-
ette Methven, Grace Studiford, Isa-
belle Vernon, Tillle Salinger, Clar
ice Snyder, Betty Kirkbride and
Ofelia Calvo (the Gypsy dancer) in
other important roles. Matinees
Wednesday and Saturday.
Much fun is injected into the joy
ous proceedings at the Gayety this
week by Beulah La Von, a chorus
girl with a truly leather-lunged
voice. When she chirps her sub
cellar notes can be heard over the
other 25 or 30 combined voices, and
in the ''pick-out" number, during
which the various choristers have
their individual chance at singing
Oh, So Pretty, the audience is
never satisfied until Miss La Von
has her try at it. It is said that
during the summer months she has
a government position at a rocky
point on the 'Atlantic coast where
she substitutes or a fog-horn while
the said horn takes its vacation.
Ladies' matinee daily at 2:15.
It is 17 years since Mr. Warfield
first appeared in "Th- Auctioneer,"
which he will present at the Bran
deis on Tuesday and Wednesday of
next week. Despite changing tastes
in things theatrical, his performance
in the role of the old peddler, Si
mon Levi, continues to amuse play
goers as much as ever.
Mme. Frances Alda to Sing ,
French and English Songs
Mme. Frances Alda, who will ap
pear in recital at the Auditorium
Friday evening March 7, will sing
as a number in one of her groups
the famous "Un bel di vendremo"
(some day he'll come) from Mme.
Butterfuly. Other groups will in
clude French, Norwegian, Finnish
and English as well as songs of
the more popular vein.
Another feature will be the beau
tiful decorations and. lighting effects
that have been installed for the
automobile show and which will lend
an artistic background and sur
rounding to the occasion.
In an effort to meet the demand
for popular priced seats several hun
dred chairs on the arena floor will
be placed on sale Friday morning

Western Representatives En
ter Good-Natured Protest
Over Cut and Dried
Washington Bureau, Omaha Bee.
Washington, March 5. With a
desire to get majority committee
places settled as expeditiously as
possible, the committee on commit
tees in the republican caucus met
this morning and elected Repre
sentative Mann temporary chair
man, although it had been the in
tention' to elect Rep. J. Hampton
Moore of Pennsylvania chairman of
A good-natured protest was
entered by a number of western
representatives to the cut and dried
plan of the Mann followers and as a
result Mann himself consented to
One of the first things the com
mittee did was to decide that the re
publican membership of the ten
leading committees of the house
should be continued as at present
constituted, although Representative
Longworth asked that the ways and
means committee matter be passed
Congressman Mondell of Wyom
ing, who will be a candidate for
floor leader, called Longworth's
hand by saying that he had two
motives in his opposition to present
considerations. First, he wanted to
beat Fordney of Michigan for the
chairmanship, and second he wanted
the chairmanship of the ways and
means committee to carry with it
Accepting Mondell s version as
representing" the true situation, the
committee on committees at once
decided that seniority should gov
ern as to committee chairmanships
which made Fordney the new chair
man of the ways and means. Han
sen of Iowa will preside over agri
culture, Kennedy of Iowa over
rivers and harbors, while Good of
Iowa will get the important chair
manship of appropriations.
What Nebraska Wants.
The afternoon session of the com
mittee was given over largely to
hearing nominations of representa
tives state delegations for com
mittee places for their colleagues.
Judge Kinkaid nominated Jefferis
for military affairs, which nomina
tion was seconded by Green of
Iowa on political grounds, although
there are only three vacancies on
the military affairs commktee and
a number of the older members
want one of the vacancies. Kinkaid
further placed in nomination An
drews for ways and means; Evans
for rivers and harbors; and Mc
Laughlin for agriculture, y
As all the other delegations made
their nominations it easily will be
seen that the committee on com
mittees has no small job in front
of it to prepare a list of commit
tees which it must submit to the
full conference before its final adop
tion. Among other things the commit
tee on committees did was to select
chairmanships for other important
committees. Judge Kinkaid of the
Sixth Nebraska district was given
the chairmanship of the committee
on irrigation of arid lands. Although
he was also the ranking member
on invalid pensions he chose irri
gation, a subject upon which he is
regarded as an authority.
Towner of Iowa was given the
chairmanship on insular affairs,
subject, oi course, to the caucus
While no effort was made today
to select , a majority leader, Mr.
Mann declaring himself wholly out
of consideration, the supporters of
Mondell ot Wyoming, Moore ot
Pennsylvania and Longworth of
Ohio were busy canvassing the sit
uation. Mr. Mondell said that as long as
Mr. Mann had decided not to allow
the use of his name, he was
prompted to make the race because
the west had a right to be consid
ered in this matter and for the
further fact that Massachusetts
and Pennsylvania might in a way be
looked upon as reactionary, es
pecially as to the votes of their rep
resentatives on woman- suffrage,
prohibition, good roads, etc.
Mondell said he was opposed to
dumping everything in the way of
political preferment in the east and
would ask his friends west, east and
north to support his candidacy for

a realtors' meeting in the Chamber
of Commerce Wednesday noon.
Morton and Kuhns went to Lincoln
Tuesday to investigate. .
The negro housing problem came
up for discussion. Suggestions for

license issued rcbruary it.
Officials of the food administra
tion had expected to reach an
agreement before the first of the
month on continuance of minimum
prices for hogs, but after confer
ences with the war trade board and
President Wilson it was announced
no decision would be possible until
the president could consider the
whole matter of export embargoes.
Two statements were issued to
night by the food administration.
One dealt entirely with the effort of
the war trade board's order. This
order said former Governor Stuart
of Virginia, chairman of the na
tional agricultural advisory com
mittee; has sent to "his committee
and to the swine producers commit
tee a statement endorsing and warm
ly commending the earnest, but un
availing efforts of the food adminis
tration to maintain the minimum
price for hogs.
Statement of Food Administration.
The statement regarding the
board's action said in part:
lhe practical effect of this ac
tion of the war trade board is to
destroy the ability of the United
States food administration to fur
ther stabilize the price of live hogs.
It was the desire and has been the
endeavor of the food administration
to continue this stabilization as here
tofore and until March 31, when the
normal marketing period of hogs
farrowed in the spring of 1918 would
"The whole program of stabiliza
tion of prices was the outgrowth of
the imperative necessity for stimu
lated hog production for war needs
at a time when a dangerous short
age of fats threatened the entire
"The obligation with respect to
the pigs farrowed in the spring of
lyio began with the marketing ot
September and would have been
terminated March 31. From 85 to
90 per cent of these hogs have been
sold, lhe huropean demand tor
hog products Will increase rather
than diminish. v '
"The supply of live hogs coming
to market in March and April will
be greatly reduced in numbers. The
European markets are opening
rapidly to free trading in hog prod
ucts and the area to be supplied is
being made increasingly accessible.
The enemy countries are to be giv
en opportunity to secure hog prod
ucts and other foods.
"Li is oossible that as a conse
quence of the general situation the j
price of hogs and pork may go high
er than the stabilized prices- which
have been maintained and which tiie I
food administration desired to be
continued to March 31, next."

Mediator Makes Progress
Toward Ending Harbor Strike
New York, March 5. Traffic tn
New York harbor remained virtually
tied ud at the end of the second day

James L. Hughes, mediator of the
Department of Labor, reported to
night that progress had been made
toward settlement between the rail

their men apparently were as far as

Wants Extra Session.
The controversy between Gover
nor Cox and Mayor Rolph arose out
of a resolution which the mayor in
troduced early in the day, demand
ing that President Wilson reconvene
congress to pass appropriation
measures, condemning the building
of American shins in Chinese and
Japanese yards while contracts in
this country were being canceled
and favoring the principle of collect

committee's decision to accept the
resolution Governor Cox said he
will be glad to give reasons if de
Mayor Rolph failed to obtain
postponement of consideration of
the report until a night session and
then promptly demanded that the
governor give the reasons for elimi

Cox did not reply and the fight over
the adoption of the report began.
Later Gov. Cox rose to a Question
of personal privilege.

Mayor Kolph heatedly replied that
there was no intention to bring poli
