Urged hv Premier
Llod George Declares Claim
Against Germany as Formu
lated by Supreme Coun
cil Is Righteous One.
By The AnUt4 Fr.
Birmingham. Eng., Feb. 6. Tbe
Critish premier's advise to Germany
i to accept the bill for reparations
as. formulated by tTie supreme coun
cil. "Our claim is a righteous one and
we must enforce it," hc declared in
:i speech here. He replied to
the speech in the Reichstag by Dr.
Walter Simons, in which the Ger
ir.au foreign minister stated that the
. l 1.1 .. V. i
reparations piu cuuiu uvi uc v
crptcd by Germany as a bsis for ne
gotitions. "A great part of this speech," the
premier said, "was based on a com
plete misconception of what has been
l-ne at Paris. Such misconception
could be cleared up in the London
conference. If a full bill were sent
iermany according to the Versailles
treaty, she would be compelled to
accept it. but I fail to see how that
would improve matters and I advis?
Dr. Simons to take the Paris bill.
"If he has any alternative propos
?'. the allies are prepared to con- i
sider, them as long as the proposal
represents a bona fide effort to liaui
(!ste the liabilities pf Germany. We j
r.-e willing that Germany should pay
t's under conditions which best suit
1'rr own means, requirements and re
sources, but if it is a mere attempt !
to evade payment, we cannot put up
with that." '
The premier pointed out before the
hi election he had emphasized that
Germany was morally bound to pay
f-r the wanton damage she had in
flicted, but that one could only get
from a debtor what the latter was
croable of paying. j
Germany, he said, had not yet been j
taxed to the level of Great Britain j
and France, and it was intolerable j
that a country held responsible for;
t!'e war and which had suffered n3
damage, should have a lighter bur
den than her victims. v

The interest 'the farmers have
shown in the bonds has made this

"Hie and Barrel of Apples Lead to
Unearthing of Young Distillery
Wearing a nice, shiny star, the
badge of a special officer for the

a revolver so large that police called
it a "twin six," M. Glassman, 11 Hi
Davenport street, was rolling a bar
rel of apples along the sidewalk at
Twelfth and Daverpbrt streets, Sat
urday night, ...
All went well until the barrel stuck
in the snow. As Glassman stooped
over to clear awav the obstruction,
he let out a "hie." The "hie" was
his undoing, for City Detectives
George Jjummitt and Bob Munch,
who were passing, heard it.
"There's a bird, that's had a drop
too much," Detective Summitt said.
"Let's give him the once over."
The detectives did so and after
questioning Glassman they conclud
ed that he had come by the apples
"I bought these apples at a grocery
store at Sixteenth and Cuming
streets. I paid $12.50 for them," the
man said. '
Taken to Station.
The detectives took Glassman
back to the grocery store and the
proprietor said, "i haven't had a bar
rel of apples in my store for months."
Glassman was taken to the police
station, protesting his innocence.

Expedition Will Search
For "Missing Link" Proof
New York, Feb. 6. Scientists
headed by Roy Chapman Andrews,
will carry on an organized search
for the "missing link" in Asia for a
5-year period, beginning next Feb

sought for the remains of the near

once over. Expedition after expe
dition wis organized. The latestto

penetrate even more remote regions.
, Even if it falls to uncover rem
nants of man's prehistoric forbears,
it is planned to bring back' to New
York "the greatest natural history
collection the world has even seen."
It is hoped to return with rare an
telopes, wild horses, new types of
camels, wild asses, long-haired ti
gers, enormous yak, snow lepers,
giant pandas, golden monkeys with
upturned noses, the golden-fleeced
takin and many other strange beasts.
The. American Museum or Natural
history, which sponsors the explora
tions, announced that its associates
are the, American Asiatic society and
the Asia Magazine. The three will
finance the expedition, with the he!?
of private contributions from Mrs.

Harry Ackerman, Jaunita, Neb,, a
fireman on the U. S. S. "Minneap

Omaha Friday to look for . work.
Saturday he wa3 in' jail, driven there
by hunger and the need of 55 cents,
and ordered a 55-cent meal.
Ackerman made a futile search for
work Friday and Friday night was
given permission to sleep in the city
jail. Saturday morning, fortified by
a breakfast of jail faje, the cx-gob
started out to look for a job.
He searched all day long visiting
all the employment agencies, stop
ping at private houses asking for
work and at the restaurants declar
ing a willingness to wash dishes for
something to eat.
They all turned him down. There
was nothing doing.
Desperate, he went inn the. Cali
fornia restaurant on Douglas street
shortly after 7 last night and ordered
a 55-cent meal.
After he had finished he told the
Chinese proprietor he was "broke"
and asked him to call the police.
The Chinese called city detectives,
who arrested Ackerman on the pro
prietor's complaint.' He was taken
John Berger, attorney, who heard
of Ackerman's plight, went to the
resturant and paid the S5 cents and
the proprietor agreed not to prose
cute. "I wouldn't have had him arrest

eaten such a big meal."
Berger offered to go Ackerman's
"No, I'll stay in here, it's nice and
warm and I'll get something to eat
tomorrow, then I'll start for hom;
Monday morning." Ackerman said.
Ackerman's case will be brought
to the. attention of the American Le

After all, it'a not necessary to be either

physical weakness due to or accompanied
by impoverished blood and weak nerves.
