" In the picture are Mr. and Mrs. Rosenberg with their three chidren, left to right, Joseph, 9; Esther, 7, and David, 10. For the first time in Omaha school history, an eighth grade diploma will be awarded to an adult. Nathan Rosenberg, 39, father of three children, will receive the cov eted piece of paper at Cass school graduating exercises today. It will be the proudest achieve ment of his life, Rosenberg admits. "I never could have dbne it with out, my faithful wife," he modestly disclaims. "She deserves the credit, not i.1; His wife's willingness to assume the burden of caring for their little junk shop at 1008 North Sixteenth street, no woman's work indeed while her husband attended school every day, along with his three lit tle ones, in addition to her house hold duties, made it possible from the economic standpoint for him to keep up his studies. And Rosenberg is not through, hie intends to enter high school in the fall and continue through the four year course. ... ' , "I don't want my children to be ashamed of their old dad when they get older," is his simple explanation. "I have come to a new land of op portunity, shall bring up my chil dren to be loyal Americans and I want to set them a good example." Rosenberg has taken out nis citi zenship papers and, indeed, is serv ing on the jury this week, the great week of his graduation. Rosenberg came to this country from Warsaw, Poland, less than nine years ago and settled in the east. "But I wasn't learning to be an American fast enough in the crowded ghettoes, so I decided to come west, where I was told I could learn Eng lish more quickly." He came to Omaha three years ago with his family and immediately entered Cass school. All the tribute of a grateful nature he lays at the feet of Miss Rose Bernstein, teacher of the ungraded room at Cass. "She who gave me my earliest training helped me over the rough spots and gave me courage to go on. She prepared me for the eighth grade work, which I had to take in order to get my diploma. It was "hard lines" for the' man of middle age to leave the ungraded room, where other adults were also being taught, to enter a room of only children of 13 and 14, but the strong urge for an education saw him through. Now he prefers the day classes at high school to the evening ones, which many adults attend. "I cannot afford to waste the time I am getting too old. If I should fan in one subject, look what time I would lose if I chose the night classes. The three kiddies enjoy going to school with their daddy. They are David, 10; Joe, 9, and Esther, 7 years old. Incidentally. Rosenberg will be excused from jury duty today so he may graduate. . Explanation of Peace Plan Asked by Holt i . .. . (Contlnned from Pace On.) half the earth and whose population numbers three-quarters of the human race. You even permitted, without rebuke, your ambassador at the court of St. James to say that you will have nothing to do with any 'com mission or committee appointed by the league or responsible, to it di rectly or indirectly, openly or furtively.' You have, nevertheless, as presi dential candidate, repeatedly prom ised ; during the campaign, and as president you have reiterated that promise, that you will seek to es tablish 'an association of, nations based upon the application of jus tice and right, binding us in con ference and co-operation for the pre vention of war and pointing the way to a higher civilization and interna tional fraternity in which all the world might share.' "You have not yet given the American people the slightest ink ling of the terms of this Harding association that you propose shall supplant the Wilson league. Has not the time come, I respectfully ask, for you to do this. Surely you cannot expect the 48 members of the' present league to scrap it and come into your association unless two things are pefectly clear: "First, that the new association is substantially as good or better than the existing league, and, Must Have Support ' "Second, that this time a proposal of a resident of the United States will have a permanent and over whelming support of the American people. . - You are a statesman or sumciem experience to know that our people will not suDDort vour association- no matter how excellent without the fullest preliminary discussion. Events of the last two years have demon strated this. You cannot, therefore, hooe to tret oublic opinion behind your association without taking your countrymen into your connaence. "Even if your . own party were completely united on the issue, you would still have to get some demo cratic suDPOrt fo assure the ratifica tion of your association by two-thirds of the senate. As your party was the one that first made the league party issue, the democratic senators would be only human now if they turned the tables and also made your a'ssociation a party issue." They con trol more than a third of the votes in the senate and they can block you as you and your colleagues blocked Mr. Wilson. Effective Plan Necessary. . "If-you expect to gain democratic support, it is incumbent upon you to propose an .association so con crete and effective as to commend itself to the enlightened sqfise of both parties. Therefore, the quicker you take the American people into your confidence the better. I here is anotner ana even more important reason why you should disclose the details of your plan at once. . The world is on the brink of revolution, famine and pestilence. The only great ideas that have come out of this war as world panaceas are the league of nations and bol shevism. If you repudiate the ex isting league and delay too long to suggest anything in its place, you run the very real risk of making the world believe you have no plan at all and if that comes to be generally believed, can you guarantee that the world would not turn to bolshcvism? Time to Redeem Promises. "Mr. President, the time has come for you to redeem your premises. The country and the world have waited long enough to know just what kind of an association of na tions you have in mind. If you delay much further, people every where will inevitably conclude that either you have no concrete plan at all, or else that you propose to put party harmony above world welfare. In that event there will be nothing left for those who want America to play her rightful part in stabilizing the world, but to organize the coun try so as to capture congress for the league in 1922 and the presidency in 1924. This can be done, for the vast majority of the American peo ple republicans as well as demo crats, want the United States to en ter some sort of a league or associa tion with enough 'teeth in it' definite ly to. hasten the daywhen, as Victor Hugo prophesied, 'the only battle field will be the market opening to commerce and the mind opening to new ideas.'"

Red Cross reports that it has so much supplies that they cannot un load them and could feed the whole population of the city with non-perishables for one month.

The principal trouble needing im mediate relief," the secretary added, "is the removal of mud and debris and the repair of the water facilities of the town all in the interests of proper sanitation and to prevent an epidemic The secretary of war has therefore authorized the expenditure of not to exceed $100,000 for the city and it is now estimated by Colonel Caples that the work of re moving mud and debris can be ac complished by June 30 at a cost of about $85,000. "As a further sanitary measure, the closing of fcreaks in the levees and the repair of the water system of the town, which is the remaining most Imperative requirement, the secretary of war has authorized the expenditure of not to exceed, for the present, $80,000 for that purpose, which was recomended by Colonel Caples as result of his inspection on the groundr Labor Meeting Rejects Plan of One Big Union (Continued from Pace One.) nearly a score of delegates jumped from their seats and demanded the name of the delegates who had ob jected. He declined to give the name of the delegates. As the con fusion increased, President William Hutcheson of the United Brother hood ' of Carpenters and Joiners arose and said: "If you want to know who the ob jector is it is I." , Several delegates called his name aloud as the convention proceeded to further business. The resolution also urged that steps be taken to have the govern ment "abolish this unlawful organi zation known as the Klu Klux Klan, or White Caps," and that the feder ation use its "best endeavors to pro tect organized labor as represented by the colored workers." One of the greatest ovations ever given a speaker in any federation convention was given to the Rev. G. S. Lackland of the Grace Metho dist Episcopal church of Denver, who discussed the "duty of the church to labor." He was cheered repeatedly by the delegates as he condmned the enemies of organized labor. "The dense ignorance of the other side will win the fight for labor," he declared, outlining alleged attempts by business men and others to sup press the church investigation of the tramway strike in Denver last sum mer. 1 , Aid American Homes. I 'T'he pulpits of America have been pleading for the women and children of Belgium," said Mr. Lack land. "Why in God's name do they not plead for the women and chil dren of America?" "Three-fourths of the 300,000 babies that died last year died in the homes of working men where the open shop or American shop, so called, conditions prevail where they deflate labor." He declared the American Legion should "get together in the fight for the masses," adding, "I believe they will." , Col. Olney M. Ousley, director of the American Legion, brought a fraternal message from that organi zation to the laboring men. "The harmony of this natioA and its honor only can be preserved by upholding the constitution of the United States," he said, closing with an appeal for justice to "each and every man." Reports that President John Lewis of the United Mine Workers would announce his candidacy for the presidency of the federation in opposition to Mr. Gompers within the next few days could not be con firmed tonight The miners' leader declined to make any statement. Representa tives of several unions ' supporting Lewis claim that a canvass of dele gates shows that Lewis is assured of from 14,000 to 20,000 votes of the more than 35,000 votes in the con vention.
