Assignment For
Pershing Will Be
Announced Soon
Rumors Favor Appointment
As Ambassador to Japan
Which is Said to Be
Washington, April 6. Secretary
Weeks' statement that he would
shortly announce, a detail to duty for
General Pershing, "commensurate
with his rank," has caused consid
erable interest and speculation in the
War department. Several possible
assignments for the general, whose
rank as general of the army places
him above any routine detail, have
been discussed by officials, it was
said today.
It has been rumored he would re
tire to accept a diplomatic post,
probably that of ambassador to
Japan to succeed Roland Mor
n's, whose, resignation President
Harding accepted. It is understood
this would be the most acceptable
diplomatic post General Pershing
could be offered. His service there
years ago as military attache would
tend to qualify him for the position,
it has been pointed out. Another
diplomatic post mentioned is Paris,
but it is believed that if given his
choice he would prefer Tokio.
On the other hand many army
officers believe General Pershing will
either be made chief of staff to suc
ceed Maj. Gen. Peyton C. March, or
that Secretary Weeks will seek from
congress legislation placing ;he army
on a field financial basis with him
as general of the army at the head
of the organization. In that event
it was pointed out, the general would
have a staff exactly as he had Major
General Harbord as his principal as
sistant and chief of staff in di'.ecting
the A. E. F. during the war.
Another assignment frequently
mentioned in connection with Gen
eral Pershing is that of governor
general of the Philippines, but it is
not believed sucb a detail would be
acceptable to him. A tour of the
world as an envoy extraordinary
similar to the tours made b" other
allied leaders after the war also has
been mentioned.
General Fershing has never
broached the subject of retirement
to the new administration as far as
can be learned. More than a year
ago in a letter to Secretary Baker,
he indicated his desire to go on the
retired list when he had completed
important duties on which he was
engaged. Most of those duties are
Under the law the general may re
tire at any time with full pay and
allowances of his rank, amounting to
about $21.000 a year.

Pilfering of "Booze"

gage, mail and express agents of

, v
Lincoln, April 6. (Special.) The
Peters Trust company of Omaha has
filed its brief on appeal to the Nebraska-supreme
court from the de
cree in fhe Douglas county district
court denying the company the
r?ght to deduct nearly $500,000 in
government bonds and real estate
mortgages from its capital stock of
$000,000. reported for 1919 taxation.
The company claimed exemption
on $40,900 in Liberty bonds and
$-5,000 in joint stock land bank
bonds because the federal govern
ment provided thev should he tax
free, and from $370,000 in real estate
mortgages, because the mortgages
were already paying taxes.
Fruit Growers
Name Committee
On Market Plans
Follow Lead of Grain' and
Live Stock Men Hope to
Prevent Big Losses to
Chicago Tribune-Omaha lire I.wurd Wire.
Chicago, April 6. Growers from
every fruit belt .in the United States
made their attempt today in Chica
go to solve their marketing prob
lems. More than 200 met at the
Congress hotel to discuss the practi
cability of a national co-operative
marketing plan.
After the fashion of the grain and
live stock committees, the fruit
growers will' appoint a committee of
21 t draft a plan by which all or
ganizations may market their apples,
pears and other fruits through one
or more national sales agencies.
Regional organizations will be the
foundation for their system. Strong
co-operative organizations arc al
ready in existence in California, the
Tacific northwest the Ozark region.
Michigan and, Florida.
The need of .a producer-owned
and controlled marketing system
arises from the general fall in price
of fruit to the man who grows it.
In a California orchard under an
orange tree a grower has this sign:
"Too cheap to steal; help your
self," and oranges are selling for 8
cents each in Chicago, one of the
delegates said.
"Marketing is one of the largest
problems confronting fruit growers."
said Samuel Adams, editor of the
American Fruit Growers. "There
never has been a movement of na
tional scope looking toward the so
lution of this difficult problem,
but the time is now ripe."
Gray Silver, Washington repre-.
sentative of the Federal Farm bu
reau, told the delegates it would take
a carload of apples to buy a suit
of clothes and an overcoat in Wash
ington. "A tailor asked $300 for the suit
and overcoat, and in those two ar
ticles there were 20 pounds of wool,
which the grower could sell for only
20 cents a pound," he said.
Saunders County Reviews
Road Dragging Contracts
Wahoo, Neb., April 6. (Special. 1
Saunders county will not make
any attempt to reduce the cost of
dragging the roads this season, ac
cording to County Engineer Frank
Tracey. About 350 contracts have
been made with farmers at the old
rate of $1 a mile. Each contractor
is supposed to drag his particular
stretch of road as quickly as possi
ble after each rain and real rivalry
exists between many neighboring
contractors as to who shall maintain
the best piece of road. As a result
many strips of roafl in Saunders
county are nearly as good as the
state highways.

Unusual Honor
Given Evans in
His Appointment
Nebraska n Chosen Over '75
Candidates for Place on
House Comniitte on
Washington, April 6. (Special
Telegram.) Judge Evans of Dakota
City spent much of his time today in
receiving the congratulations of
many friends on having been select
ed by the committee on committees
as a member of the powerful com
mittee on appropriations of the
house. ' -
There were upwards of 75 candi
dates for the place, old as well as
new members, and to have been able
to land on the committee, after one
term in congress, is indeed excep
tional. Congressman Jefferis who ex
pressed no preference for a commit
tee assignment, leaving the matter
wholly in the hands of the commit
tee, will probably be given a place
on merchant marine and fisheries
and cctai'u his place on Indian af
fairs. There are those who insist
that "Big Jeff" has won the chair
manship of the committee on ex
penditures in the War department
on account of the ability he dis
played in investigating war expendi
tures, but the Omaha man gave no
indication to the subcommittee,
charged with formulating the com
mittee list for the full committee as
to his preferences. Being in the
dark, Judge Kinkaid endeavored to
assign Congressman Jefferis to the
committees which he thought most
advantageous. It is admitted also as
far as Nebraska is concerned, unless
the Missouri and the Platte get bus,)',
that an assignment to the commit
tee on merchant marine and fisheries
will not serve the prairie state to
any great advantage, but it gives
promise of being one of the most
important committees in the 67th
Representative Andrews, though
a process of absorption and elimina
tion, it is thought, will be given a
chairmanship, that of election of
president, vice president and repre
sentatives in congress. Mr. An
drews is fifth on the committee as
it was constituted in the 66th con
gress, but those who rank hint have
been promoted to major committees,
which will give, him clear sailing.
He will remain on postofllces and
post roads.
Mr. McLaughlin will retain his
present committee assignment, that
of agriculture. Mr. will con
tinue on the judiciary committee
while "Uncle Mose" Kinkaid will re
tain the chairmanship of the com
mittee on irrigation of arid lands.
Congressman Reavis returned to
day from an extended visit to Ne
braska with his "dander" up over
the Lincoln postoffice situation. To
morrow Mr. Reavis will have a con
ference with Postmaster General
Hays and will insist that action be
taken immediately to terminate a
rather anomalous condition.
