LINCOLN Members of the board of control are not responding very en thusiastically to the campaign which cne of the Omaha newspapers has undertaken to have them abolish rule now in force at the state peni tentiary which forbids the smoking of cigarets by convicts, ine umana pa- S'-r quoted Assistant Superintendent ert Anderson of the new state re formatory as saying that the pris oners there would be furnished cig rrets and permitted to smoke them in their cells. If this is allowed it will be in di rect violation of the Nebraska cig aret law enacted in 197, which for bids the selling or giving of cigarets or tobacco in any form to minors un ler twenty-one years of age. This law further prohibits anyone except a licensed dealer to sell or give away these articles to anybody. A great many of the reformatory inmates are under twenty-one yeara of age. The board of control has not yet considered the question of fur nishing them with cigarets, but Mem ber A. K.

Youngblood, 4307 South Twenty-second street, Omaha, may now return to his home wearing the uniform he wore on the battlefields of France. There will be no welcome arches or bands for his arrival ; but he may hold his young head high and have, pride in his heart for the part he took in stemming the German tide in France. For President Harding granted him an unconditional pardon Friday which not only restores him to full citizen ship, but also gives him the option of serving out the term of his enlistment in the army or taking an honorable discharge from the service. Youngblood and four other service men were sentenced to life terms in the federal prison at Leavenworth for the alleged murder of an English army officer. The officer was killed at Kant, Germany, in June of 1920, during a riot Senator Hitchcock and Congress man Jefferis made strenuous pleas for the pardon of Youngblood and his com- immonit ueiure uig secretary 01 war ten days ago. They urged that the testimony of government witnesses failed to connect these five men with the riot which resulted in the officer's death. On the recommendation of Secretary of War Weeks, President Harding granted the pardon for the ve men.

LINCOLN Convicts at the state penitentiary probably will begin mak .ng shirts and overalls for inmates of ill state institutions thin winter. That was the announcement made by War den Fenton, who for several weeks has been busy endeavoring to figure out a olut:on for the unemployment prob lem in his institution. "At the present time we are In cor respondence with machinery in tnufac turers and it is probable that another month or two will find a part of the unemployment busy at tihirt tnd over all making," Warden Fenton said. The warden hopes that the fi.rniture factory will be running at top speed in a short time. This factory when in operation employs about 00 men. At present, because of the tightened econ omic conditions, there is little furni ture being manufactured and about 500 convicts are idle. "A most heroic spirit was manifest ed by every man in the Alliance uit trict present at the convention held Monday and Tuesday, and there was a unanimous vote in this first confer ence in favor of giving the first $100,000 raised in the joint compuign between Wesleyan nnd tiie hospital toward the construction cf tiie h jFpit&l ro serve the North Platte valley ond the Northwest Nebraska conference which is to be located nt Scottsbiuff, "Ti e pastor was elected by the con ference to go on to Ainsworth where he will have the responsibility of pre senting the claims for the hospital.

' But that is not the greatest economy of a clean,, properly lubricated motor. Freedom from wear on bearings and moving z parts saves much more money. According to leading automo tive engineers 90 of the total expense for motor repairs is caused by using lubricating oils of inferior quality or wrong . body. - Polarine is made by special processes which render it free from excess carbon. . It maintains a protecting oil cushion in the bearings arid between moving parts, and a gas-tight and fuel-tight seal between piston rings and cylinders. Polarine is made . in our grades light; medium heavy, heavy and extra heavy but only one quality. jQet the proper grade for your car next time by referring to Polarine chart at our Service Stations or dealers, and you will start cutting downj motoring costs.

Geographically, the South is not as far away as it seems, but climatically (in winter) it is about as far away as it could be and in the right direction, too for balmy breezes, sunny skies, moonlit bays, tropical flowers and foliage are the order of the dav in trie winfpr timo in the Southland. . . And, those who pack their grips and bid farewell to the North at this time, reap rich rewards and return with a full realization ol: the real value of a winter's vacation in that romantic, historic and beautiful land south of the Mason & Dixon line. Instead of saying to yourself "I wish I were in Dixie," why don't you go South this winter? The cost is low perhaps not as much as you thought it would be, when the price of things generally is considered, and you de duct the cost of staying at home.
