The School Bond Issue. '
I ; A bill now before the house with a favorable
committee recommendation and with excellent
prospects of becoming law permits the Inde-
pendent School District of Omaha to sell bonds
bearing interest as high as 6 per cent. ,The pur
pose ot this, and the only reason on which it
can -be justified, is to provide the money needed
for the erection of the High School of Com
merce. The bill also provides that bonds may.
be offered in multiples of $100, with a hope that
local, buyera will take them as investments,
Some members of the Douglas county delegation
favored setting the denomination as low 'as $S0;
out this was found to be inexpedient because of
other laws that would have to be amended.
Members of the Board of Education are con
vinced, however, that a considerable sum in
bonds may be disposed of to Omaha. folks in
the proposed denominations.
Fixing the rate of interest is a concession to
the money market, where Omaha long time 'se
curities, in common with those of most other
cities of the same class, are selling around 5.25.
That figure has been quoted a number of tunes
as the ideal one for the city, determined by con
ditions in the money market. A tax-exempt 5n-
v vestment at that rate looks mighty good to
most buyers. The Bee was and is of the opinion
that the interest rate should not have been in
creased, nor permission given to sell'the bonds
at les3 than par, feeling that purchasers could
be found for iNl that will, be issued to complete
the urgent work at hand. ' However, if the
school board thinks it is acting for the best in-'
terests of the taxpayerta I course will prob
ably be followed as outlined. .
j J White on this topic; it may not be ont of
place to suggest that plans be laid to get public'
(school finances back onto a solid footing. For
tany years a steadily mounting deficit has ap
peared in the balance sheet, due in part tothe
different endings of the year, which' has', led to
anticipation of revenue and expenditure of funds'
not' actually on hand. While this is technically
correct, the overlap resulting has grown until it
jjiow stands at a formidable figure. This was1,

i It is beyond hope ..of accomplishment to re

growing community, auebvas Omaha,' yet pru-
: dent management requires that the work be kept
' as nearly on a cash basis as possible. . The peo
ple, however generous they are in making pro
vision for the schools, yet expect that a,, due re

f. A Hero of Every-Day Life.
! The death of a city detective, Arthur G.
"jdooper, from wounds inflicted by a fleeing ban
dit will give many citizens a new realization of
the heroic services that are' renderid by the
" Omaha police force. In the 12 years of his
service, this officer had been many times under
. jtne fire of lawless men. . The public, reading of
' these skirmishes, little realised the heroism that
it signified, considering it all in the night's work
- ii its protectors.
I 1 ' It must be confessed that all too. often the
American sympathy for the underdog pits its
.sentiment on the side of criminals who are seen
ai. the victims of hard luck or evil environment
struggling against an impersonal' organization
vwith, whom they are perpetually at war. Clear
cut episodes such as the assassination of Detec
tive Cooper ought to serve to correct this maud
lin sentiment that extends even to juries and

' Diminishing Stream of Booze.
According to his announced plans, Super
visor Kramer hopes to shut off a portion of the
liquor supply in the United States during the
coming days. One of the inexplicable features
of the enforcement of the prohibitory law has
been the ease of withdrawal from storehouses
of contraband whisky. At no time or place lias
the law been especially effective, while permits
to handle the forbidden article have created suc'i
a scandal as lps almost discouraged those who
earnestly expected a "dry"-Amcriea. Perhaps
the advocates of prohibition looked for too

I The auxiliary Icrvice of life insurance in- pro
ttcting national health is seldom realized. In

is under way to make each insurance solicitor

' As reported in the- Survey, the Metropolitan
Life Insurance 'company, 'with 1,750,000 indus
trial policy holders among negroes, finds the
' death rate to be 16 per thousand, as contrasted
yith JO per .thousand among white workers."
i The average life of a white man in the indus

man is 37, and! that ofa white woman worker

, It is iuXeresting to note that the migration
that little likelihood of a complete drouth ex
isted. Mr. Kramer announced several weeks
ago that absolute cessation of drinking is im
possible, but he hoped by a stricter enforcement
of the law to reduce the practice to a minimum.
Congress has taken a part in the affair, by
cutting down the amount asked for the enforce
ment of the law, thus doing away with one of
the flagrant abuses, that of providing soft berths
for men whose only interest in prohibition
comes from the easy money it offers. With the
passing of war time "prosperity," with its plcnli
tude of mdney, the bootlegging business v.-ill

"Just Between Us Democrats."
As the Cardinal Lord Archbishop of Rheims
took up the matter of cursing the thief who had
prigged his turquoise ring, "in holy anger and
pious grief," so does the .World-Herald proceed
to chastise those democrats who voted to in
struct Senator Hitchcock; to support the Ford
ney, tariff bill. It is a solemn affair, brethren,
this dispute between us democrats. We are ex
pected to stick together, particularly when it
comes to opposing anything suggested by a
republican. Especially does this apply to pro
tective tariff, even wheri the purpose of such
tariff, is to. benefit the wheat, growers of Ne
braska. Better many times over that all the
wheat should' be sold at a loss than that the har
mony that, distinguishes the party of Bryan and
Muxphjv Cox and McAdoo, Daniels and Baker,
Palmer and "Brennan, should be disturbed by
any such, act as that of which the democrats in
the Nebraska legislature have been guilty.
However it is some comfort to know how the
home folks feel, about it, even if it Joes com
plicate matters for the' senator, and possibly
make "Charley" White's job of reconstruction
a little more difficult. Bat the democratic mi-.
rity in the Nebraska legislature has undoubt
edly evaporated before the withering blast from
our . democrat! contemporary.
The first practical step to utilize the williug-
ness of the farmers to contribute corn for the
alleviation' of hunger abroad has beea taken by
Dr. J. E. Kirby of the Near East Relief council.
There is no doubt that many farmers are ready,
as' the leader of one of their organizations wired
Herbert Hoover, to "market their surpl-us.com
in relief and take their pay in good will." ,
Several thousand bushels of corn have al
ready been Sent to the Armenians, and now the
middle west is given opportunity to contribute
500,000 bushels more. What part of this comes
from Nebraska and westefn Iowa is to be milled
in Omaha and packed for shipping overseas. If
the' philanihropy of the farmers were merely to
throw a great quantity of corn on the market,
the poceeds of which were to be spent in buy
ing other food here or abroad, the corn growers
would only be injuring themselves by their
donations. But now that a practical system of
actually making use of the surplus, in places
where starvation dwells has been designed, the
farmers are at last enabled to assist their neigh
bors overseas without hurt to themselves. If
the proper organization is set up, thousands of
farmers, with their grain heaped high, would
be willing to haul a wagon load of corn to town
and give it freely.
Fade-Out for Central.
After all, we will miss "Central"' when the.
automatic telephones come into use. For one
thing, we will have no one to blame but our
selves whn we dial the wrong number. Now
that she is about to leave, we realize that she
has been at least as accurate as wc, and at all
events did not attempt to converse with a cigar
or pipe in her mouth, as did some of her inter
locutors at the other end of the line.
Thinking it over, great credit must be given
to the central operators for their patience. "The
voice with the smile" has soothed many a patron
and given freely a shining example of self re
straint, for operators arc seldom known to
answer back. Training at the switchboard mast
have imparted valuable training to these young
women, giving them a real value in other trying
positions, among which, without making any
definite proposal, we suggest matrimony.
The headline writer who informs the world
that a speaker will address the "taxpayers' body"
evidently believes it is time for a funeral, and
that some one has been taxed to death.
