Model Hospital Train With
134 Wounded Soldiers Go
ing to Camp Lewis Here
for Two Hours.
A model hospital train, carrying
134 wounded soldiers to Camp
Lewis, Wash., stopped for over two
hours in Omaha yesterday morning.
During the stopover the men were
showered with flower's and cigarets
by local canteen workers, and tak
en for a short toour of the city in
private cars. . .
With a few exceptions every man
on the train fought in at least one of
the great battles of the world war.
A maioritv of the heroes were
wounded in the Argonne forest
fight, although men wounded at
Cantigney, Chatteau Thierry and St.
Mihiel were among the group. .
With the exception of Sergt. John
Cook and. Private John Sande, both
wounded at Argonne forest all of
the men were in convalescent
stages, and able to care for them
selves. Shrapnel and 1 gunshot
wounds, with an occasional gas
case predominated.
Happy Crowd.
They were a happy bunch of men
these herpes of the great war, in
spite of hardships and wounds suf
fered during the struggle. No har
rowing tales of death and blood
shed were told, and no complaints
were voiced.
"We're on our way home," smiled
one round faced youth, "so what
more could we ask?" ,
The men are all from the north
west section of the Vnite.d State.s.
aridrthe fact that they were headed
northwest seemed to be all thai
was - necessary to their happiness.
They began their journey across
the continent from the Debarkation
hospital at- New. York, where they
were -assembled together with re
spect to the locality of their homes.
A coincidence occured during the
stopover when Friv. Charles
Spangle of the 326 field signal ba
tallion mentioned the name of Lt.
Col. Lawrence Simpson, an Omaha
man now in Audenach, Germany,
under whom hewserved. Harold
Simpson, brother of. Colonel Simpr
son, who served in the same ba
tallion in France and only recently
returned, was called by telephone
and came to the station, where the
two engaged , in an animated con
versation. .
Open for Inspection.
The hospital train consisted' of
four bed cars, an operating car and
a kitchen car. It is the first train
passing through Omaha that - has
been open for public inspection, and
scores of people viewed the many
comforts and conveniences furnished
the men.
The bed cars are specially recon
structed Pullmans. They are braced
by steel girders to prevent tele-
scoping in case of collision, and
have been changed in many other
respects. The operatin. car is a

Daniels Commends
v Crew of Destroyer
Shaw for Courage
Washington, May 4. Secretary
Daniels has commended 17 members
of the crew of the destroyer Shaw
for their courage and devotion to
duty at the time of the collision be
tween their vessel and the Cunrad
liner Aquitania last October 9, near
the English coast. I Two officers and
10 men lost their lives in the acci
dent. The Shaw 'was convoying the
Aquitania, and was zig-zagging, as
usual, when its steering gear be
came disabled. Had it followed its
course it probably would have ram

commanding officer ordered full
speed astern and thus so changed
the Shaw's course as to bring it
under the bow of the huge troop
Ninety feet of the Shaw's bow
was carried away in the collision,
but in spite of this, picked men of
the crew got the vessel to port with

not touched upon at the meeting of

There has been no meeting of the
German and inter-allied commis

commission met today at the Quai

Must Raise Over Four Hun
dred Million Daily to Carry
Victory Loan "Over the
Top" This Week.
Washington, May 4. With sub
scriptions to the Victory Liberty
loan lagging to a greater extent than
in any of the four previous loan
campaigns, Secretary of the -Treasury
Glass tonight, at the beginning
of the closing week of the drive,
sent to all campaign committees a
strong appeal for a final effort that
would exceed the minimum quota of
, Official figures for the various
stages of the First and Second Lib
erty loans are lacking, but the best
available information was said to
indicate that on the eve of the final
week more than four-ninths of the
loan had been taken in each drive.
In the third loan campaign at the
start of the final week two-thirds of
the total had been subscribed, and
at the beginning of the third week
of the last loan campaign about one
half the total had been raised.
Subscriptions officially reported in
the Victory campaign total $1,657,
979,350. To reach the minimum
quota slightly -more than $400,000,
000 must be raised daily, beginning
tomorrow and ending Saturday
night. -
Treasury officials,-however,- were
not pessimistic tonight. The work
of the final week, because of the
relatively poor -showing thus fat,
will be centered on, what cne cam
paign director termed "big money."
The final week of the campaign
is expected to see an interesting
race between districts for the honor
of being the first "over the top." St.
Louis, which won this honor in the
Fourth Liberty loan campaign, is
leading at present.
