BELLEVUE AND WESLEY AN
IN DOUBLE HEADER TODAY
The Bellevue college track and base ball
team will meet the teams representing
Nebraska Wesleyan university this after
noon on the local athletic grounds. The
track meet scheduled for last Saturday
will be called at 1 o'clock and the base
ball games between the two schools will
follow the track events.
The mos sanguine of track supporters
are not expecting a victory over the
Wesleyan team, which has been strength
ened by the return of McCandless and
has lost none of last year's men. The
Bellevue team, which defeated the Coy
otes in last year's dual contest have
been weakened by the loss of two star
men, Paulson and R. Quaokenbush, and
the new material this year has been Blow
to develop. However, the locals while
weak in the sprints and some of the
field events, are stronger this year than
last in the weights and are hopeful of
placing in the distance events.
On the contrary the base ball team is
In the pink of condition and is looking
forward to a victory over the Wesleyan
ball, artists. Boiling and Quackenbush
will constitute the pitching staff, with
Haswell, Halderman, Ohman and Stookey
in the Infield. , Maxwell, Patterson and
Benderson will play In the gardens and
tha team will be In condition to do the
best work of the season.

Annnnl Election Thursday.
The annual election will be held Thurs-
day afternoon and at this ttme the Indica
tions are that all but the grand secretary
wilt be re-elected unanimously. There is
a contest for this office, but whether or
not it will ever reach the floor of the
lodge room Is questioned. Mrs. J. E.
Blmpson has held the office thirteen years
and now there are one or two other
women who think they have a right to
become candidates and seek the honored
position, tho only one that carries a
salary along with It.
There are a number of men who are
members of the Eastern Star, notwith

He took for his subject, "Health as a
Commercial Asset, with Preventable Dis
eases as a Heavy Liability." Following
up his statement with regard to the num
ber of deaths from preventable diseases,
ho said: "This frenzied prodigality of
the nation's greatest asset results In a
needless annual loss of earning power
equal to $1,827,000,000. Is it any wonder that
the medical profession has for all thcue
many years striven to establish a fedora)
department of publlo health so as to
check this waste? Every twenty-four
hours 1,728 persons die from preventable
disease, representing a loss of potential
economlo value of $4,995,400.
Uenvy Tribute of Dlaenne.
"Of the many preventable diseases that
ruthlessly demand a heavy tribute In
lives I will only consider for a few mo
ments each of these typhoid fever, tu
berculosis, venereal disease, and Inciden
tally refer to alcoholism. Each of these
diseases is coextensive with civilization
and probably antedates recorded history.
jjr. Alien J. aicuaugnun oi uie unuea
States Public Health service asserted be
fore the Association of Life Insurance
Presidents in New York, December 6,
1912, that the economic loss caused by
typhoid fever in this country is $100,000,000
a year; that tms disease is more disas
trous than cholera, although the mortal
ity rate of typhoid fever is lower, yet
is transmissible In more ways, Is more
expensive in Its lingering course, and
more disastrous in its sequels than Asi
Some Local Records.
"But what of our own state? From
December L 1911, to December 1, 1912,
there were reported-128 deaths from ty
phoid fever in this state. From authen
tic reports we have it that there are
twelve cases of typhoid fever to each
death due to this cause, and if we accept
this as a basis there were 1,380 cases of
this disease in Nebraska in 1913. Now,
If we allow seventy-five days of Incapa
city of earning power for each one re
covering, we find there was a combined
loss tn time of 103,050 days, or more than
284 years. Expressed in dollars, at $1.60
per day we ftnd there has been an eco
nomlo loss of $155,825. Now computing
the average value 'of life at $2,900 for
each of tho 126 reported deaths, we have
an irreparable loss amounting to $335,400
and a total tribute to typhoid fever dur
ing the year 1912 of $521,225 in Nebraska."
The speaker mode a mere reference to
the many sequels that follow typhoid
Dr. Pickett touched on tuberculosis as
a preventable disease and gave figures
to show that in 1912 there were 636 deaths
in Nebraska due to this disease. This
loss of life he represented in money value
or earning power as $2,240,000.
Two Illlllons for Alcohol,
In referring to the toxlo agents that af
fect the system, Dr. Pickett referred to
alcohol as "the first in potency of lia
bility and the curse of humanity." "I
refer to alcohol and all its derlvltlves
used as a beverage," he continued, "There
Is a belief entertained by even some of
our profession and generally accepted by
the laity In some comunltles that alcohol
in small quantities, such as beer, Is not
Injurious, but that It is a stimulant a
food, and healthful. According to ac
credited Investigators and the authentic
opinions of those most capable to render
unbiased judgments, such belief is er
