SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
TO SCHOOL BELL
1,000 Omaha Teachers Ready
to Open Public Halls of
Learning Today Will
Twenty-five thousand children and
1,000 teachers will respond to the
school bell this morning when the
new school year will be started in
more than SO public schools.
On account of the visit of Presi
dent Wilson today, this morning's
school session will not be very for
mal, but the teachers will begin this
afternoon to get the lessons started
and the children placed.
A few changes have been made
in the principalities. Clara B. Mason,
principal at Park school for years,
and Elizabeth Rooney, formerly of
Miller Park school, were retired last
June. Ann B. Hutchins, principal
at Franklin, also has been retired.
J. H. Beveridge, superintendent,
will check up his enrollments this
week with a view of equalizing
schools that are crowded ana those
where rooms are not filled.
Half day sessions will be oredered
in a few of the rooms at Dundee
school until the new annex shall
have been completed next month.
N. Y. Irish Aldermen
for Prince of Wales
New York, Sept. 7. (By Univer
sal Service.) The board of alder
men has appropriated $100,000 for
the entertainment of General Persh
ing on his arrival from France next
Wednesday, but balked at voting
anything for the reception of the
prince of Wales on his visit to the
Opposition to the entertainment
of the prince at the expense of the
city came from three republican
members, Bruce M. Fatconer, Wil
liam F. Quinn and Clifford S. Bost
wick. Mr. Falconer said he would
oppose use of any part of the appro
priation for the reception of the
?rince and that the Americans of
rish descent on the board would
do likewise. One of the members
of the board said after the meet
ing: "There is not a chance that the
board will appropriate a dollar for
the entertainment of the prince of
Wales and I doubt whether any re
publican or democrat member would
have the temerity to move for such
an appropriation. Possibly one of
the socialists might do so, but the
man who makes a motion of that
sort, whether in jest, or to get an

OF THE STATE UNI
READY FOR WORK
Tutors, Recently Appointed
by Regents, Come From
Some of Best Institu
tions of Country
The new professors, recently ap
pointed by the regents of the Uni
versity of Nebraska have begun to
appear. Professors L. H. Warshaw
and H. Vaughan of the modern
language department preceded them.
Others are expected shortly.
Raymond E. Davis, assistant pro
fessor of civil engineering in charge
surveying, will be a new member
of the engineering faculty. Profes
sor Davis is a graduate of the uni
versities of the states of Maine and
Illinois with the degrees of Bachelor
Science in railway engineering, Civil
Engineer and Master of Science in
theoretical and applied mechanics.
He did graduate work in re-inforced
concrete and hydraulics under Pro
fessor A. N. Talbot and in educa
tion under D. W S. Bagley. His
practice extends oyer a period of
Two men have been added to the
faculty in physics department at the
state university. They are H. H.
Marvin, professor of theoretical
physics and T. Townsend Smith,
professor of physics. Professor Mar
vin was given the degree of Bache
lor of Arts at Grinnell College, la.,
and the degree of Doctor of Philos
ophy at Columbia. Ha spent tow
years as instrnctor at the Boston
Institute of Technology and was
called to Tuf's College, in a suburb
of Boston, where he has remained
to the present time. At Columbia
he held the Tyndall fellowship.
Prof. Smith was given all three
academic degrees at Harvard, re
ceiving the doctorate in 1916. From
1910 to January, 1918, he was a mem
ber of the instructional force in the
department of physics at the Uni
versity of Kansas. From February,
1918, to December he was assistant
physicist at the bureau of standards,
for the last several months of the
period acting as chief of the section
of optical instruments.' Since Janu
ary of the present year he has been
a member of the faculty of the Uni
versity of Kansas. His doctorate
thesis was upon the "Magnetic
Properties of Hematite." H has
also published works on "Compound
Lens Systems" and "Apparatus for
the Testing of Binocular Tele
scopes." Prof. Smith will probably have
the course in physics for arts and
science students and- the course in
Omaha Business College.
The delightful light rooms and sccom-.
moda'lons in the new quarters of the
Omaha Business college in the Lyric
bulldtnjr are putting; new pep Into every
body connected with the school.
Much encouragement la felt by tha fact
that former pupils who dropped out on
account of the flu epidemic last year or
because of removal from the city, are
coming back to renew their studies, taking
up the work where they had stopped and
are now going ahead to finish the course.
The fact that busy business and pro
fessional men have taken the interest to
Investigate the college and its courses
and then to have recommended and, in
some cases, brought personally students
for enrolment is appreciated and grate
The fall term Is now opened and both
old and new students are getting Into the
full swing of regular studies with a vim
and eagerness that bespeaks splendid re
sults. The annoyance of delay In get
ting phone eervice has at last been over
come and prospective students and others
can now reach the college by the old tele
phone number, Douglas 6528.
The management is busy planning on
some new courses of study and will have
more to say about Uem ere long. Mosher
shorthand and touch typewriting, as al
ways, is and will be given the great at
tention deserved as the demand for the
well trained stenographers of the O. B. C.
seems to (be incessant.

Why We Teach
Mr. Mosher introduced the Gregg system of shorthand
to this section of the country. He saw where it could bt
improved. By adding twelve little ' shortening principles to
the Gregg alphabet he has secured to Mosher writers briefer
outlines and positive legibility. At the same time he has
eliminated a great volume of memory work.
Mosher is far briefer. Mosher has fewer angles and is
easier to write. In Mosher every word is written in full and
is always the same. It is easily read when the notes are
"cold." All Mosher writers write their words alike and can
read each other's notes.
Mosher Shorthand is used alike by both Court Reporters
and Stenographers. It is endorsed by experts throughout the
United States. Thousands are writing it. The best shorthand
speed record, 804 words a minute, was made by a Mosher
write There is a satisfaction in teaching it, because we get
better results than with any other system of which we
know. It is quicker learned and more accurate in use. Our
students are making good.
In chooosing YOUR Shorthand course, take Mosher.
Become a rapid and accurate writer and stenog
rapher. If you have learned the Gregg system and
want to speed up, let us help you. Mosher writers
command good positions.
