"Three Frightful Clubs of the
, Devil" Are Attacked by Rev.
.At Charles W. Savidge
In Sermon.
' Rv. Charges VV. Savidge, at the
' People's church last night, flayed the
city council for its recent refusal
to heed the request of a body of
women who asked to have Sunday
dancing abolished in Omaha.
"When God says, 'Remember the
Sabbath day to keen it holy.' the
city council said, 'Now God, -go
back and sit down; we are running
."this town,'" declared Rev. Mr.
Savidge. -
"The modern dance is full or
lust. The modern dance is fall of
hell. Teachers of dancing tell me
there are only three kinds of ar
tistic dancing now, the fox trot, the
i' one step and the waltz. I know of
more than those, and in these
dances the dancers ,imitate the
movements of the sea and of wild
animals. They dance the grizzly
bear,, the turkey trot, the Apache, the
buuny hug, the can can, the shim
rriy. At burlesque theaters they
have a dance which I should call the
sparse clothing and high kicking
dance. Large congregations assem

graceful spectacles.

sacred hours of. Sunday night, at

"We nre thus turning out thieves

Turn Bigamist to Wed
Daughter of Rich Man
New York, March R-When. Al
bert Graubatd, 28, conductor on a
surface car, was arraigned before
fudge Rosalsky lie pleaded guilty to
The complainant against him was
his first wife, Mrs,, Sadie Graubard,
who sa'd that she was married to
the defendant in 1912. They had
three children.
She said she accidentally heard on
January 12 last that her husband
ad met Mollie Blaustein, 18 years
old, whose father is wealthy, arid
had married her.
"Your, honor, my Just wife knew
I was going to be married to this
girl," Graubard testified. She gave
me the money to hire an evening
suit in which to be married.
MoWie B. Austin, when called to
the stand, said:
''Judge, why his wife first came to
me he brought her to my house,
and they discussed my marnnge.
She told me she was his sister."
"Yes," replied Mrs, Urauoard, "he
told me to do it, judge."
"Well, this is too much for me,"
said Judge Rosalsky. "I will re
mand you for sentence."

Trip to a Doctor in Twenty Years
Echelon of Officers Maintained
' . In Moscow by German
General Staff.
Chl Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Washington, March 14. Amer
ican officials here are satisfied. Gen.
Erich, von Ludendorff passed
rthroiigh Finland with a staff of Ger
man officers, en route for soviet Rus
sia last week and while full verifica
tion is lacking, it is believed by of
ficials here that Ludendorff is prob-
aoiy in Moscow at mis time.
, Officials know , that the German
general staff has been maintaining
an echelon of officer in Moscow for
some time, and, there is no doubt
here that these officials have been
?.t work on military plans for the
soviet leaders.
Trotkyi, it is believed, hai been
getting credit for strategic successes
won - with German staff advice. It
is believed here that the, entry of
Ludendorff into .soviet Russia Is
linked up with negotiations between
German militaristic and monarchical
reactionaries and. Lenine and Trot
zky with a view tar joint allianee be
tween German and soviet Russia.
May Take Direct Charge.
The belief is held here that Lu
dendorff has gone to Moscow to
take charge of the actual direction
of work on which the German gen
eral staff echelon at Moscow has
been at work for some time.
The present serious aspect of the
Turkish situation is believed in well
informed circles here to be the re
sult of actions timed to synchronize
with the plans for a Germans coup d'
etat this spring. Enver Pasha is
knowrf to have been in Berlin re
cently in conference with German
leaders. He has been active in pro
moting Armenian massacres and in
planning the spread of the. Pan-Turanian
movement of ;the Turkish na
tionalists. During the world war he
was the main link between Berlin
and Constantinople. Whether he is
yet in Berlin is not known, but his
recent presence there has been defin
ately established, and is regarded
as having an important bearing on
developments in Asia Minor,.
The western front is not regarded
as being jeopardized by the present
situation at least not at present.
Military experts are confident that
Foch can handle the situation.
The great danger is believed to be
that the pext step in the development
or the iewnan reactionary plans, un
less they fail at this time, will be
development of an understanding
with soviet Russia with a view to in
dustrial and possibly military co
operation. -
Soldier Who Goes to Claim ,
Bride Finds Her Already Wed
New York, March 14. Earl J.
McDanicl, said by all who saw him
to be the handsomestt young soldier
that hps yet called at the immigra
tion station on Ellis island to claim
a warbride, was all out of breath
when he rushed up to the informa
tion desk. '
v"Her name is Jeanne Andre; and
she is supposed to have come on the
steamship Savoie. She's from Paris,
and she is , my sweetheart. I have
come to marry her," cried McDanicl.
He was in a greater hurry than
ever, but his haste "Was to get away
when he learned that a young wom
an of tht name Jeanne Andre had, in
fact, come to New York on the Sa
voie, but had been released in th
custody of the. Y. M. C. A, agent to
marry .another.;
"I know she has been correspond
ing with another soldier," said Mc
Drfniol, "and I think the lucky chap
lives out in Michigan somewhere."
McDanicl told the immigration of
ficials that he had served as courier
to the peace conference at Paris and
as guard f6r Assistant Secretary of
State Frank L. Polk, when the latter
took Secretary Lansing's place at
Versailles. His home is in Texas.
Good Looks Detriment,
Says New York W6man
In Divorce Petition
New York, March 14. Good-
looking Kirls are warned to be care
ful in a letter introduced as evidence
in the divorce suit brought in Pat-
erson, N. J., by Sergt. James W. Me
Glade. The letter was written by
McGlade's wife, Anita, who did not
contest the suit. Francis Scott, spe
cial master in chancery, recommend
ed that the decree be granted.
The letter, which admitted that
the writer had left her husband to
become the "pampered doll" of a
milliona-re oil speculator, added:
"My beauty was fatal, my good
looks a detriment to my -being a
good wife." -
She ended with the hope that her
case would be an example to other
girls with good looks. s
Testimony showed that the Mc
Glades were married in 1911. . On
March 2b, 1916, Mrs. McGlade left
her child with her grandmother "to
mind for a few hours." The follow
ing day she sent a telegram saying
she was sorry, but would not come
home again for some time, and ask
ing that no search be made for her.
In March, 1918, while he was
abroad, Mrs. Emma ' Monks, the
ittandmother, received a telegram
from Mrs. McGlade saying she was
about to commit suicide, ft was fol
lowed by a letter for "a friend" con

Washington, March 14. Govern
ment officials are expressing in
creasing concern over the oil . sit
uation. A serious condition respecting the
fuel oil supply for the navy and the
vessels of the shipping board exists
with slight prospects of immediate
relief. The Navy department may
take steps to commandeer fuel oil
this week if satisfactory bids are
not forthcoming on 5,000,000 bar-j
rels for "which bids( will be opened
on Tuesday.
Prices of oil are rapidly mounting
because ofv, the shortage and in
creased demand. The shipping board
recently advertised for bids for a
year's supply of fuel oil but rejected
the only bids which were presented
because they were trom ou to. U per
cent above the prices previously
paid. The board then advertised for
bids for a six months' supply. While
the prices were way above what was
considered reasonable, the board ae
ccoted the bids in order to obtain
a much needed supply. .'

Solution of Problem,
Says National C. of C.
Chicago Xrlbant-Omaha B taawd Wire,
Washington, March 14. - Seeing
in increased production a means oi
restoring normal business and price
conditions the chamber of commerce
of the 'United States, it was an
nounced, will make its eighth annual
meeting, to be held at Aalantic City,
April 27 to 29, an "increased produc
tion convention." t
Lack of production, the Chamber
of Commerce says, is one of the
chief causes of the high cost, of
living which cannot be reduced until
more goods are put on the market.
Prices have been forced up by
competitive bidding. This in turn has
made, necessary unusual wage in
creases with a sftll further rise in
manufacturing and production costs.
Even with the exchange as it is,
with its threatened curtailment of
exports to Europe, manufacturers
generally believe it will be' a long
time before production in the United
States catches up with the demand
for goods.

Germans About Strikes
(CoBtlsoad Yom Tnt Fa(.)
While adherence to the new gov
ernment has been promised by some
of the outside states, Saxony has
declared againstNt, and Bavaria,
Wurttemburg and Bsden have joined
in denouncing the movement.
The national party refused to have
relations with the Kapp government,
and the conservative leader, Count
Posadowsky, asserts that he will not
identify himself with the new chan
cellor. Hamburg and Darmstadt are
said to be irreconcilable. i
Hindenburg in Background.
Meanwhile one of the greatest
figures in the German national life,
Field Marshal von Hindenburg, has
kept himself in the background. His
former close associate, .General Lu
dendorff, credited - with being the
brains and moving spirit of the Ger
man army in its belligerent days,
has had a conference with the new
chancellor. What passed between
them is, of course, not known. It is
possible, however, that Von Hinden
burg, who is already a candidate
for the presidency, may loom large
before rvents take definite shape.
With the advent of the general
strike proclaimed throughout Ger
many by the independent socialists,
affiliated with the trade unions and
other organizations, Berlin is al
ready beginning to feel the pinch of
suffering again. The water supply
has been largely cut off and food is
scarce. Hotels are shutting down,
and. if the strike continues, mean
of transportation, both passenger
and freight, will be at an end.
Noskt Organizing Troops.
Gustav Noske, "minister of defense
in the Ebert government, is report
ed to be in Saxony organizing
troops. Noske has always been a
fighter, and there is reason to be
lieve that he will not accept the
present situation without drastic ac
tion in opposition to" it.
That Noske has troops still loyal
to him is indicated by the fact that
they have repulsed an attack against
them in their barracks at Frankfort,
Reports have been received from
that city of numerous casualties in
the fighting, but whether this was
between troops and militia, or be
tween troops and workmen, is not
definitely known.
People Discuss Situation.
The streets of Berlin exhibited
their customary Sundav asoect to
day. Unter Den Linden was
crowded; people gathered in the
sunshine to discuss the situation.
One of the main attractions con
sisted of barbed wire entanglements
near Wilhelmstrasse and field guns
and machine guns posted in front of
the military guard at the Branden
burg gate.
Towards noon, however, the
waiters in the hotels ceased to work,
and the guests who had not been
prudent enough to lunch early, had
to bunt food for themselves.
New Cabinet not Formed.
The new cabinet has not yet been
formed, but it is definitely known
that Dr. Traugott von Japow, for
mer chief of police of Berlin and a
notable reactionary, will be Prus
sian minister of the interior.
It is proposed for the present to
have only a two-man cabinet, or di
rectorate, composed of Dr. Wolf'
gang Kajip and Major General Bar
on von Luettwitz,
Minister of Transportation Osser
has informed Kapp that the railway
employes of Prussia objected to a
cabinet in which Kapp and Von
Jagow nre represented, and that if
they remained in office the entire
railway forces would strike.
Fifteen Persons Killed.
London, March 14. During the
fighting in Frankfort, IS persons
were killed and iuu wounded, says
an exchange Telegraph dispatch
trom Berlin.
The police were, compelled to
leave the town in consequence of
the mob seizing an arms depot, the
dispatch adds, .
Shots were exchanged between the
torpedo boats in the harbor and
workmen in the naval dock yard at
Mel Saturday afternoon, says a dis
patch to the Central News quoted
the Berlingske Tidende's Kiel cor
respondent, as confirming the sur
render of the German fleet. Ux-
nnes are now occupying the dock
yard. A general strike has been de
clared by all the workers, except
tnose in me gas ana water plants.
The City Was Quiet at Midnight
There were a half million people in
Under Den Linden during the day,
but no clashes with the. troops were
reported. The military patrols
seemed to have the situation well in
hand, but the real test of the situa
tion is expected to come Monday or
Tuesday when the general striked
probably will be in full swing.
Chancellor Kapp today told the
newspaper correspondents that the
government would not hesitate .to
supress .any insurrection by strik
ers. (.
As yet there is no visible political
support for the government, but re
ports indicate that the new govern
ment is winning the support of
troops in south Germany and that
its prestige has risen considerably
since Saturday.

Washington, March 14. William

Washington, has it that te an

Politicians here were interested
today in publication by the Hearst

articles from other newspapers,
either urging Mr. Hearst to become

able candidacy." This was interpreted
by the politicians as a move to pave
