MEN ANXIOUS TO
- ASSIST FARMERS
Letters "C. F. R.,"xAbbrevia
tion .for Bureau's Motto,
Create Friendly Relations
. With Rural Populace.
. It ia possible that many do not
know what the mystic letters "C. F.
R atahd for and yet almost every
orie .who gets along in this old world
, carries them into effect.
Probably the greatest medium for
"jC. F. R." in Omaha is the agricul
J t.iralj bureau of the Chamber of
Commerce. Its "special purpose is
to Create Friendly Relations be
tween town and country- "
i C. F. R. brings in no particular
profit, but is valuable none the less
for helping the farmer and the city-H
man to see eye-to-eye and. under
stand each other's problems.
The committee that manages this
agricultural bureau is headed by W.
iD.. Hosford, manager of one of tne
biggest farm implement companies
. in, Omaha. Every member of it
-1 lived, as a boy, and many as young
men. on the farm. Their interest in
improving agricultural conditions is
very real, and their knowledge bad
on actiial experience. r
Here Are the Farmers:
' For instance, there is- William
Stull, tvho has, farms all the way
from Colorado to Indiana'. He is
known as the author of a big book
on agriculture showing that the only
ining inat ir wrong with tanning is
mat it is not profitable enough.
Then there is I. "W. Shorthill.
Kcbraska farmer, who was secretary
of the government graiir board dur
ing the war. D. P. Hogan. an Iowa
tarmer who is president of the Fed
eral Land bank in Omaha, ys another
one on the committee; W. M. Tem-
fle, editor of the Nebraska Farm
ournal; T. F. Sturgis, former editor
of the Twentieth Century Farmer,
"nd Frank Myers, manager of the
Nebraska Farmers' union1, are among
ine omer memoers. , ,
For manager of the' bureau they
chose H.. F. Mcintosh, a man of
..lone Mxatrlence ac a farmer ctnh-
feeder and farm editor. One would
, know that he Is a farmer by the early
hour at whicH he rrives,at his of
. Wftrki for Better Schooli. -
The work of the bureau covers
wide scope. There is Harry Schif
ferle, who went'chit in the state and
helped organize a farmers' potato
marketing association. Through
co-operation with countv sunerin-
tendents of schools," the movement"
lor redistncting so as to have larger
- and better "educational facilities is
being furthered. County agents
- fnake use of the facilities of the
bureau in countless ways. When
Some county fair- is running down,
the bureau sends it expert, advice

fiishes booster copy to be given to
the local newspapers.. M some farm
club is in Aeed of a speaker, Mr.
. Mclntqsh can be relied upon to get
- Co-Opera tion is Urged.
By example and precept, this
group of Omaha business men, who
canhot forget that they once lived
6n 'the , soil, are calling the atten
. tion of commercial clubs all Over
the state to the. need for wider co
operation "With the rural population.
And when the farmers come into
town for such an event as the re
cent sale of. fine hogs, the farm
bureau is there to .greet and enter
tain them. . t
"The interests of the farmers and
city folks are 'mutual," said Mr. Mc
intosh yesterday. One of the func
, tions of our bureau , is to show what
' the i farmers are doing for them
selves. When some, new variety of
-seed wheat or , rye is found that
gives a greater yield, we like to tell
the business men about it. The
. things accomplished by the live
farmers of Nebraska mean a great
deal to all of us.
Extend a Friendly Hand. -
- ".We do not attempt to go into
direct production problems. Bumper
crops show that the farmers have
mastered that end of their business,
and pre not in need of outside ad-
'ce. We already., have diversifica
tion to the limit"Cf our climatic con
ditions. There. is no chance of re
stricted production by farmers who
own their land. What they asR is to
be l$,t alone. 'e afe not attempt
ing to advise them, but merely to
get acquainted, and to make tlicm
feel that we stand ready to i co-operate
with them whenever necessary,
for all our interests are the same."
Wagon Coal Mine Owners

Washington, Sept. ; 4. Owners of
wagon coal mines protested today to
the Interstate Commerce commis
sion against the recent order re
stricting use of open top cars by
such mines unless equipped with

.'The operators denied that the
loading of cars from wagon mines
resulted in undue delay of railroad
equipment. The commission's or
der was characterized as discrim

the' delay, complained of was due to
the practice of the railroads in many
instances in giving the railroad
mines a week's supply of cars . in

Agony arid suspense, experienced
by -hundreds of Omaha families dur

oPMr. and Mrs. J. Habler, aged
Omaha couple, 401 North Fifteenth
-Like hundreds of other ' Omaha
parents, this old couple rejoiced at
the signing of the armistice. They
marched, happily with the gay, re

streets when the armistice was an
For their two vounsrest sons had

also meant they would.be able 'to

America, where,' after a separation of
14 years, they would again be re
united with their parents, and cane,
for them in their declining years.
He Died Fighting.
It was .shortly after the signing
of the armistice that word reached
the parents that their youngest son,
Dave, 23 'years old, had been killed
on the Italian front. The bldw stag
gered the old people. Yet their sor
row was somewhat relieved when
a letter from their older son, Mosej,
informed them. Dave had died fight
ing, a brave soldier to the last.
. They tried to forget their sorrow
by looking forward to the return of
Moses. He planned to leave --for
America as soon' as he could save
sufficient funds and had secured a
passport. Several months ago they
received a message stating he would
embark for America some , time in

on happily. It was indeed a glor
ious interval. ;
l Fighting Reds Now.
But Friday, their Jiappy dreams
iwcre shattered. A message x from
'Moses informed them he was in the
Polish army fighting the horde of
Reds .that sought to" annihilate Po
land. ,He had been about to em
bank for America,, he said, when
news of the boryhevik advance into
Polandjx.ached him. He could not
bear the thought that his native
country might be overrun. So he
enlisted. When the Reds werr
crushed he. would leave for Amer
iqa, he said.
And now the old couple are try
ing to .drowned thir sorrow with
the thought of their Son's bravery
and patriotism. He had been force J
into the Austrian xarmy, but "when
his native country was in peril he had
given up his chance to leave it all,
and. hurried to its aid, hence he is
very good and brave, they say.
But they are experiencing all the
agony and suspense so well' known
to hundreds of other Omaha parents
during the great war. " . :

Congestion of attendance is antici

it would be necessary to hold half

schools that show disparities of en

braska Preacher Gives Hot
Baths to Cootie-Laden
Fame has come out of a bathtub
in the ruins of a French village to
a Nebraska minister.
The Rev.. Charles R. Tyner, pas
tor of the Episcopal church at Hast
ings, undoubtedly accomplished
much that wSs helpful to .the soldiers
of the First division while on duty
with the Y. M. C. A.but thedecd
that is put down for the world to
read is his getting bathtubs for
the doughboys in a dusty desert of
crumbled stone and shattered homes.
Katherine Mayo tells the story
in her new book, published by
Houghton Mifflin companv, and
called "That Damn Y." Despite the
title of the work, the book is in
praise of the canteen workers.
Story 'of "Hoi Water."
Mr. Tyner, who is chaplain of the
American Legion in Nebraska, left
his church at Lincoln to serve with
the Y. M. C. A. His wife, who was
a Miss Sprague of Omaha, stayed
in this city in his absence. His
two brothers are prominent, one
being the Rev. George Tyner of
Fremont, and the other the Rev.
Frederick' Tyner, formerly pastor of
St. Andrews church here, and now
preaching in Minneapolis.
But the story of "Hot Water, by
Gosh," as given by Miss Mayo, fol
"Tyner, once on as time,' was
dropped on a rubbish heap called
Thieux, around which troops i)ext
day wjuld camp, coming out of the
trenches for rest. Beside him, there
in the rubbish, was also dropped a
camion load of V supplies, tor which
fie should find immediate shelter
rora doubtless impending rains.

"Alone in T'hieux- Tyner, there
fore, hunted about till he founcf half
a hole to hold his gc(ods. Then he
poked and pulled among the debris,
seeking the wherewithal to complete
the hole. "
' "Something in the nature of a roof
he wanted such as a door, or the
sideof a wardrobe, or a pulpit top
or a smallish balcony.

"The because time was short,
Tyner ran back through the ruins, ,

next necessity. Again he found it

kettle that had all too obviously been
used for clarifying lard.
"Wood there was in plenty all
