Makes You Stronger
If you are weak, thin and nervous; if
you are lacking in that vim, vigor and
vitality which makes work a pleasure and
life worth living; it's almost a certainty

aren't more than doubled, you can have

Under the provisions of the fore

local members of the American Le

The men are each equipped with 200

While Omaha is in charge of the
military, martial law does not ex
ist in its full meaning. General
Wood explained yesterday that the
functions of the civil courts would
not be disturbed; that the military
authority will be extended only to
protect life and property. County
Attorney A. V. Shotwell conferred
with the general yesterday afternoon
on the matter of co-ordinating the
office of the county prosecutor with
the federal government.
All members of the local police
department are subject to the direc

Mayor Ure also is co-operating.
Legion Members Serve.
Allan Tukey, an overseas service
man, is in charge of members of the
American legion who have volun

expects to have an organization of
450 men. ..They are sworn in by the
city as special police and are under
orders of the military authorities.
Their arms will be kept in the city
hall when they are not on duty.
General Wood addressed these men
in the city council chamber at 5:15
p. m. yesterday.
"If you are ordered to make an
arrest, you will be expected to do
so with' as little violence as pos
sible, but with all the violence neces
sary," he said. "If you go. after a
man, you will bring him in alive if
you can. If not, you will bring him
in dead. There will be no more

hoped had found its resting place

Must Reorganize Police. .
"Our police force must be thor
oughly reorganized and doubled in
size. A national guard should be
organized at once so that we may
have adequate and quick protection
if anything of this sort breaks out
in the future."
General Wood stated that he has
received a telegram from Wash

charge of the situation.
"This action is taken," he said,
"because the governor of 'this
state has appealed for federal as
"There is an explosive condition
in many large cities today.. The
forces of anarchy are small in num
ber but well organized and seem
to be well-financed. No chances
must be taken. We have 1,400 or

get more if necessary. I am in
clined to think that the crisis has
passed but we cannot tell.
No Public Meetings.
"Military orders have been issued,
asking that no large- public meet

military forces will be allowed to
carry arms, either concealed or un

good citizens. And order will be
maintained, we trust, without resort

will be put down promptly.

"It is our intention to interfere
with the business of the city as lit
tle as possible. In organizing the
American Legion men I have asked
that one platoon be composed of
colored men who have seen service
overseas. I believe that it is no
more than right to allow them to
show their, right to citizenship."
The general referred to the unrest
in all parts of the country and said
that it was time that everyone get
together and prohibit open talk of
"Loose, idle and visionary talk has
served to bring about what has oc
curred in Omaha," he said.
Governor McKelvie, speaking
briefly, said that it is not the duty of
the state to enforce law in Omaha,
but that if Omaha cannot keep or
der the state stands ready to do so.
. "Omaha has been slow in re
sponding to the need for organizing
a national guard," he said. "Such an
organization could havejjeen galled
