Omaha Man Explains Reasons
for Failure of Conference
, to Settle International
Collective bargaining and the steel
strike were the two causes for the
failure of the national industrial
meeting at Washington, D. C, ac
cording to Ward M. Burgess of
Omaha, who returned yesterday
As a member of the body repre
senting the public Mr. Burgess was
able to size the situation up better
than members of the employers' or
labor bodies. The body represent
ing the public was for the most part
neutral during the controversy, be
said. . .
"The body representing .the pub
lic was not against collective bar
gaining with some limitations," said
Mr. Burgess. "It. was against col
lective bargaining which would force
a man to join any organization, keep
him from choosing his own repre
sentatives or prevent him advancing
if he had ability to do so, however.
Steel Strike Aids.
, "The steel strike also strained the
relations between the employers and
Asked concerning his disappear
ance from the conference, Mr. Bur
gess explained that he had merely
gone to New York for a day to see
Louis C. Nash of Omaha, who was
in the east at that time. There was
nothing of importance before the
conference at the time, he said.
Although there is an atmosphere
of unrest at Washington, there Is
no fear in official circles of any kind
of a, socialistic uprising in any part
of the country, Mr. Burgess de
clared. He prophesied that another
industrial conference would be held

men be appointed to devise a plan
for rew relationship between capi
tal and labor. This idea, if carried

cording to Mr. Burgess. ' ' .
Tbe work, he said,- represents a
stupendous task and will- take
months to work out.
The body representing the public
left the conference after labor and
employer bodies had deserted, be

Mr. Burgess is of the opinion that
the industrial conference, as it was
planned, was entirely impractical
and accomplished little or nothing.
TONIGHT TO MAKE

Advertising-Selling League Gave

Last IVfight. .; :7J
A campaign to make Omaha on?
of the leading aerial centers of the
world will be officially started to
night when members of the newly
organteed Omaha Aero club and the
Aerial Club of Nebraska will meet at
the Hotel Fontenelle for the purpose
Of consolidation. . ,
The consolidation movement,
which has been advocated by both
clubs, was brought to a head last
merit when Fay L.. Faurote, man
ager of "the educational and welfare
division of the.Curtiss Airplane and
Motor corporation, addressed mem
bers of the Advertising and Selling
league of Omaha.
Details Plane History.
Mr. Faurote gave a detailed-history
of the airplane, beginning with
its earliest stages and bringing it up
to the latest stage. Aerial naviga
tion -"in this country, he said, ' has
reached a stage where the only hin
drance to its practical use for com
mercial purposes is i lack of ade
quate and safe landing fields.
Harley G. Conant, chairman of
the aerial navigation committee of
the Chamber of Commerce, in. a
short Speech outlined plans for a
new landing field in the spring. It
is to be a 90-acre field, equipped
with up-to-date hangars and other
essentials. He called attention to
the efforts of neighboring cities to
establish themselves as aerial cen
ters and urged that Omaha make
greater efforts to establish itself on
the air routes of the country.
! "Third Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral Praeger informed me that
Omaha would have aerial mail serv
ice by spring," declared Mr. Faurote
in an interview.
"I believe bank clearings in
Omaha alone would be increased
sufficiently to warrant utmost co
operation of Omaha business inter
ests in establishing air connections
with the east," said Mr. Faurote.
"The commercial air navigation in
America is at the present time
handicapped' by lack of suitable
Mr. Faurote told of the construc
tion of a great passenger airplane
by the Curtiss corporation, which
has already proved a success in
trial flights. The plane will carry
eight passengers, besides its 'crew,
he said, and will soon make a flight
across the country.

SONGS that keep tunning through
your head, nd pretty girls
, galore, in a chorus that shows
the result of experienced training,
mark vCohen : & Harris' musical
comedy, "Going Up,", now showing
at the Brandeis.
The story is of an author who
write a book on aviation, in which
he so graphically described his first
trip in an airplane that the novel im
mediately ibecame a "belt seller." .
His doctor advised him to leave
the excitement of the city for a pre
scribed rest to a beautiful hotel in
the Berkshires. Here his fame as
the author of the book, "Going Up,"
followed him, and through the
efforts of a friend he is coerced into
a challenged flight with an experi
enced French aviator. He meets the
girl for whom he makes his "first
trip in an airplane." I
An experienced mechanician gives
him one evening's less'on, and he
takes to the air, while the crowds
at his hotel await in fear and
anguish for his landing .after being
enlightened by the "friend" who got
him into-the entire trouble that he
was not an aviator. Bjit he come3
down all right, wins the flight and
the girl, '
Raymond Crane, the, author,
makes a distinct hit with the audi
ence, portraying his part with such
vividness that the spectators feel hi?
thrills as he mounts the steps into
the plane for . his first flight. Norma
Brown, lead, for whom the author
flies, enchants with her song, "When
You Look Into Her Eyes," while
Mario Villani, who . portrays the
ardent French lover and rival air
man, is entrancingly realistic. His
accent is most nearly perfect, and
his voice enchanting., Loretta Marks
and Jack Patton please with their
"Tickle Toe," in which they do intri
cate steps with exceptional ease and
grace. Eleanor Bennett, as the tele
phone girl of the hotel, and Charles
Myers, the father of the desired
girl, are kee'n in their character por
trayal. The chorus, besides being well
trained, is exquisitely gowned, and
their music is unusually good. The
cast is one of the best balanced that
has appeared in Omaha for many
The human airplane, on which
Mario Villani sings' his "Going Up,"
is a unique side play which takes
well with the audience.
T. Roy Barnes, one of the stel
lar attractions this week at the Or
pheum, began his stage career as a
slight-of-hand trickster. With Bes
sie Crawford, he is presenting an
extremely laughable skit called "A
Package of Smiles.',' Emma Haig,
the dainty dancer, is combining her
efforts with those of Jack Waldron.
The big society night audience last
evening greatly enjoyed these at
tractions. The mystifving electrical
offering presented vby Mme. Burnell
also scored a hit.
When they , bring on the girls at
the Boyd this week the, stage fills
with such an aggregation of varied
female loveliness as seldom is seen,
for the Winter - Garden spectacle,
"The Passing Show of 1918," is on
view there, and it is some view. It
gives the onlooker an idea of what
has made Broadway famous. But
the show does not depend on its
girls, for it has Willie and Eugene
Howard, who have to work hard to
hold the "star" spot against John
Burke and Ray Cummings. Some
dancers, too, and lots of songs and
pjctures. The show stays all week.
If there is anyone deposed these
afternoons or evenings to dejection
they should not fail to secure their
seats for May Robson, whom Au
gustus Pitou, Inc., will present , at
the Brandeis theater for three days,
commencing Thursday, with a mati
nee on ISaturday, in her new melo
dramatic farce, "Tish." Miss Rob
son will have the original cast and
production intact for the engagement
in this city.
Of all the spectacular features in
"Oh, Baby," which will be the of
fering of the Marcus show at the
Brandeis next week, starting with
the Sunday rnatinee, none is more
opulent than "The Gates of Araby."
Here is a stage picture that might
have surrounded Belshazzar.
Omaha's IcgaT fraternity may
learn any amount of things tney
should not do and that are not at
all in- accord with the ethics of their
honorable profession if they- will
visit "Slitkin & Slotkin. Refined
Lawyers," as portrayed by Joseph
K. Watson and Will H. Cohan at
the popular Gayety this week. A
capable cast and Barney Gerard's
"Girls de Looks" assist them.
Ladies' matinee at 2:15 daily all
L One of the pleasing features of
the show at the rEmpress is Mabel
Whitman and 'her Dixie Boys,
dancers of extraordinary ability. The
one act playlet, "The Sweethearts,"
presented by Walter Pearson and
company, is also , pleasing. Mr.
Pearson's "impersonation of the
brother who desires the happiness
of his sister is most effective.

Defeat bf Government in
House of Commons and Seri
ousness of British Finances
London, Oct. 27. -(By The Asso
ciated -Press-) Mst weeks defeat
in the House of Commons and the
seriousness of the country's finances
revealed in the revised estimate sub
mitted to Parliament today, show
ing that the estimated deficit for the
vear exceeds 447,000,000 instead of
250,000,000- as fixed and found in
the budget sems to have induced
the government to yiela certain re
forms long demanded by the press.
Foremost among these demands
was that for a return to cabinet re
sponsibility, -and also more regular
attendance of the prime minister in
the House of Commons, The former
apparently has been granted in the
announcement of a return . to the
peace time term for the cabinet,
whereby all ministers will be re
sponsible for the decisions taken,
instead of the few ministers forming
the war cabinet. .
With regard to the second demand
an inspirea statement was issueo
tonight to the effect that as soon as
his , duties in connection with the
peace conference are ended the pre
mier will revert to his old practice
of personally answering questions in
the House ot Commons, rle win be
gin by doing this once weekly and
later may attend on two days.
The cabinet today drafted- a mo
tion which will be proposed by Aus
ten Chamberlain, chancellor of the
exchequer, on; Wednesday, "that th'f
nouse, realizing me serious enccn
upon the trade and industry of the
nation of the enormous financial
burdens resulting from the war,
promises its hearty support to the
government in all reasonable pro
posals, however drastic, for the re
duction of expenditures and the di
minution of debt."
Three Days' Debate.
, It is understood the debate on this
motion and the amendments moved
by the independent liberals and la
borites will extend over at least
three days. The laborites advocate
a levy on capital and the reversion
to the state of all fortunes made as
a result of the war.
The Irish question still provides
the government with a difficult prob
lem and it is stated that the cabinet
committee having the matter under
consideration will not likely be able
to present a satisfactory scheme u
the limited time now Available. It
is thought that the" government will
be compelled to introduce a bill
again postponing the home rule act,
which otherwise would become auto
matically! operative with the formal
ending of the war.
