Canvass of Public Men Visit-
1 ing Washington Serves to
Intensify Rapidly Crys
By B. N. TIMMONS.
Washington, March 23. (Spe
cial.) Whjle Washington headquar
ters of other republican presidential
. candiJates turn out reams of copy
daily extolling the virtues of their
respective entries, sentiment in the
east i rapidly crystallizing for a man
who has no headquarters and no
paid boomers in the national capital.
The inan is General Pershing,
who is not actively a candidate, but
tor whom Nebraska neighbors and
friends started a movement a few
weeks ago that has the avowed
candidates wondering if the Persh
ing boom is not very shortly going
to vreck a lot of other boomlets.
The best evidence of the healthy
state of the campaign that is being
made for General rershing is re
vealed in the hotel column of the
Washington Post. This hotel col
umn .is an institution. If there is
an open forum for unadulterated
public sentiment in America the
Post hotel column is the place. It is
conducted by Harry N. Price, who
is known to every public man in
America. The topics discussed run
the gamut of national and world af
fairs. Four interviews appear daily in
'this , column, from visitors from
every section of the United States
or from foreign lands. It is sig
nificant that almost daily some
prominent visitor to the national
capital has had something to say
about the growing sentiment for
There is every evidence now that
the democrats are not going to be
beaten lying down. They are get
ting together a big campaign fund
and have been flirting outrageously
with Herbert Hoover.
Another thing which shows rather
conclusively that General Pershing
is becoming a dangerous factor was
the recent copyright article of Wil
liam Jennings Bryan in eastern
papers warning against a military
candidate. But here Mr. Bryan
misted the mark, for of all the talk
heard of General Pershing, it is not
because he is a military man, but a
big American, who can be de
pended on to give the country a

son treated by Mr. Hickson. The
healer stepped into the ambulance
on his way from the rectory to the
church and talked with Mrs. Law-

Mrs. A. C. Karr. livtnor eight

so crippled with rheumatism that
her husband required the assistance

Nebraska Blind Women.
Four blind women from the Ne

E. S. Glaze of Pierce, Neb.; Mrs.
Ida Douglas of Hastings. Neb.;
Miss Elsie Carruth of Scotia, Neb.;
and Mis. C. Reese of Nebraska
"I am not a 'miracle man'!" said
Mr. Hickson. "I have had henling
powers since I was 14 years old,
but there is nothing 'miracu
lous' or new about my work. My
mission is simply a revival of faith
healing in the Christian church.
"There is no question but that
God is capable of healing physical
as well as spiritual illness. But the
extent of His ministrations is con
trolled by the limitations of human
faith. Faith healing is as old as the
Christian church. ' 4
"It is sacrilegious for persons to
say T have tried .his and that, now
I will try faith healing.'
No Power of Own.
The entire congregation joined in
the Lord's prayer at the opening of
the .services. The rector, Rev. W. E.
Mann, then offered a prayer for the
sick. At 10:10 Mr. Hickson stepped
into the pulpit and gave a 20-minute
"Jesus Christ is the only healer, I
have no healing power of my own,"
he said. "Faith healing is sure, but
it is usually gradual. Men need a
fresh vision of the presence of Jesus
Christ. If I did not believe that
His living presence is in this church
this morning' I would not dare lay
my hands upon you.
Diseases of Soul.
"Men should awaken to a need of
deeper understanding of religion.
There are soul as well as body dis
eases. Every person who has a dis
ease is under bondage of spiritual,
mental or physical ailment.
"Faith healing is not pew. It was
even common during the first 100
years of the history of the ch'urch.
Then its practice became lax until
the present time, when there is a
new movement to revive it.
"Disease and sin to Christ were
real. Medical science and medi
cine were created by God. Faith
healing in no way conflicts with this
practice. They work together."
"Let there he no whispering or
looking about," warned Mr. Hick
son at the close of his talk. "Pray
for your brothers, but don't stare at

TO LOWER COST
OF MEAT HERE
Thursday Designated as
"Cheap Cut" Day in Local
H. C. L. Campaign Butch
ers Co-Operate in Fight.
Mrs. C. G. Ryan, federal fair
price commissioner for Nebraska,
working in co-operation with the
members of the Retail Grocers' aiid
the Master Butchers' association of
Omaha, has selected Thursday of
this week as the first day when the
public will be urged to purchase
what is termed "cheap cuts" in an
effort to lower the high cost of
It is the plan of the grocers ano
butchers to offer special inducement
to their customers to use "rough
cuts" of meat, including lamb and
mutton stew, veal stew, pot roasi
rnd boiling beef, ham ends and
hocks. These cuts will be offered
to the consumer at about one-hall
what the better cuts cost.
To add impetus to the campaign
and to bring it before the house
wives of the city Mrs. Ryan yester
day morning arranged conferences
with the Omaha Women's club
economic department, Dundee
Women's club, the Benson club wnd
also representatives of the packing
industries and the meat dealers.
Less Costly Bills.
"The day has been set apart by
the Department of Justice to intro- 1
duce consumers to less costly beef, I
so that they may use parts of the
carcass hitherto neglected and here
after vary their diet and lower their
bills." said Mrs. Ryan.
"The public ought to know about
short ribs, for instance. Short ribs
have been selling for IS or 20 cents.
Prime ribs sell around 33 cents.
"Short ribs come from the same
animal and almost the same part of
the animal as the prime ribs. Vet
customers in the Omaha markets
take the prime ribs home after pay
ing higher prices.
"Husbands downtown for lunch
eat the inexpensive cuts at cafes and
restaurants, yet they go home at
night and expect the more ex
pensive parts of the steer. Why
don t more housewives learn, the
inexpensive cuts can be made just
as tasty? The housewife holds m
her own hand the remedy for very
ugh meat prices.
Rules for Housewives.
Several little rules for housewives
have been laid down for the Thurs
day meat buving campaign against
high prices. Some of them are:

In his reply to the telegram, Sen
ator Norris took occasion to say
that the statement made about
"passing the buck" was "wholly un
warranted." Continuing, he said:
"Your telegram is the first intima
tion I have had that any member of

as all other members of congress,

Congressional Record his views on
