The federal government haV just shown what It is doing In the national Safety First campaign. If you allow yourself to get sick or killed or in ?,"• jured, it is not the fault of your Uncle The first national safety exposition, $ jinclu&ng exhibits and demonstrations from twenty-five government bureaus was held in Washington from Febru ary 21 to 26. There has been a gen eral impression abroad to the efTeci cthat Uncle Sam is a safety crank, but the scope and variety of the ex position was a surprise to all but the closest followers of the movement. There was the bureau of navigation, for instance. One of the duties of this bureau is the' enforcement of a law providing that every vessel carry ing more than fifty passengers, either on the ocean or the Great Lakes, must be equipped with a wireless apparatus, effective up to a hundred miles at least. The radio inspectors reported twenty-six vessels which le^t our ports in 1915 to meet with disaster. They caught on fire, they ran ashore, they got Jammed in the ice, they collided with each other, their cargoes shift ed but they summoned assistance by wireless. In twenty-five, cases the wireless call brought such prompt help that only two lives were lost al together. The twenty-sixth case was the Lusitania. On the lakes the wireless comes in rery handily for receiving storm warnings from the weather' bureau Stations on shere. In the storms of November, ^1913—a bad month—nine teen vessels were destroyed on the lakfs. 'None of them had'radio equip ment. The" boats with wireless got warning and took shelter in time. iP*- The coaBt guard exhibited two life boats—an old timer with a long rec ord of waves breasted and lives sav ed, «nd one of the newest power boats that multiplies efficiency.

THROAT CHAS. T. SULLIVAN I Funeral Director Aulo Ambulance Washington, D. C.. Feb. 27.—Few people realize how many native and naturalized American citizens are fighting in the European armies. Re liable estimates place their number itt about ten thousand. These ten thou sand men are giving rise to all sorts of legal and diplomatic complications. The question of their status in the United States, if they get through the war alive and return home, is bother ing a good many of them. Our law sets forth that any Ameri can citizen who takes an oath of al legiance to a foreign state has ex patriated himself. Some of the Euro pean armies require an oath of alleg iance from the recruit, while others do not. Any American who* has taken such an oath is no longer an American citizen, The question of his restora tion to citizenship should he desire it, will probably have to be settled in American courts. As to the duties of American Citizen ship, the state department says in its dignified way that it does not under take to prescribe the duty of an indi' vidual with regard to his citizenship, but it is nevertheless of the opinion that American neutrality requires American citizens to keep out of the actual fighting. That is just the way The French government is not very willing to give up its claim on men of military age. To get a release from liability to serve, a special permit has to be secured from the minister of jus tice by the ex-Frenchman who has naturalized himself in another land. Besides the trouble involved, such a permit costs about Americans in the Trenches By FREDERIC J. HASKIN number of the fighting Americans in Europe feel about it. They belong to the ized citizens who were their native countries when the war broke out. The home government reserve broke out. The home government promptly snapped them up. Pres^ted them with nice new uniforms, rifleo $125. Very few Frenchmen who became American citizens took the trouble to arrange the formalities involved in re moving their names from the list of men available for active service. Hence a good many of them are now up to their knees in mud, shooting at Germans along the line that runs from Switzerland to the sea. The British army has been getting its share of Americans, chiefly in the Canadian contingent. Numerous youths from the border states have enlisted, many of them under the age of legal majority. The American gov ernment has succeeded i?i arranging for conditions of release for such re cruits. Although they enlisted vol untarily, some of their found that wai is a bigger contract than they had bargained for, and the parents of oth ers came forward with vehement objections. The British government has agreed that when con vincing proof is brought forward to show that an American citizen was a minor at the time of his enlistment" in the British army, he will be dis charged without pay wherever he may happen to be when his discharge goes into effect. i-euin In consequence, he may find himsel* stranded without money to live on or to pay bis passage home. Persons dis charged from' the British service are not allowed to wear the British uni form thereafter, so the erstwhile sold- widely assorted safety service of any arm of the government. Besides such commonplace incidents as salving wrecked vessels, it has on its records the prevention of suicide, return 9t lost children to their parents, emer gency piloting, fire fighting, and the arrest of thieves and law breakers.' In the way of recent history, the coast guard records showed that on 360 days in the last year one or more of its hranches was seeing active ser vice. Fifteen hundred people were rescued from immediate danger and the vessels to which some form of as sistance was given carried over ten thousand souls. In many cases this assistance prevented serious acci dents. The service restored to life six people dragged from the ocean after having been under water ten to fifteen minutes. ier may not even have a coat to his back. The state department has no l'unds appropriated for the care of cases such as these, and therefore the department requires that a deposit big enough to take care of the discharged recruit and pay his passage home shall be made by whoever is interested in getting him out of the service, before the case is brought to the attention of the British government. Numerous naturalized Americans are fighting in the German armies. A number of German businesses in this country are being managed by the women of the family, while the hus band and father chases Russians or argues with the English on the west ern front. In Cincinnati, for instance, there is a German bakery being run by the lady of the house. Her husband and her three sons are fighting for the red, white and black. Incidentally it may be noted that she is making a success of the baking business. There is a treaty between Germany and the United States providing that German subjects who have become clt}2,eng and trenching tools, and shipped them was warn off to the front. Most of the com plaints along this line are coming from Italy. Italian law holds that natural ization of an Italian subject in a for eign country without consent of the Italian government does not make hirn less liable to military service. The United States has no treaty with Italy defining the status of former Italian subjects who have become American citizens. Thus a former Italian sub ject who visits Italy is liable to arrest and enforced military service if he is between sixteen and thirty-two years old. A good many of the Americans on the Austro-Italian front belong to this class. of Ahls country shall be nized as 9Uch ln Germany if they Hved in the United States for five But if such a citizen emigrated was enrolled standing army, leave of ss traveling as a recruit in or while he was on absence during the regular service period which every aenm.n or .f fae wa8 ln the service period which every de_ or jf he was in e™egerve aQd left' after his "line" Pnl|pd on he is liable on his strong return, to trial and punishment on his return, even if he has his American naturaliz ation papers. Many Germans who returned to the fatherland to fight have done so on account of pressure eiercised by the relatives they left behind them. Turkey and Russia take a highly severe attitude toward such of their subjects as see fit to transfer their allegiance. A Russian subject various and ^aw- on the ground that his citizenship was forfeited. His case is being tried, and is attracting especial atten tion on account of the precedent it will establish. twho naturalizes under another government has committed an offense for which he can be arrested and punished on his return to Russia, unless he first gets permission to return from the czar's government. The United States dissents from Russia's position in the matter, but a. former Russian citizen who returns to Russian soli puts him self within the jurisdiction of Russian law. If he conceals the fact of his American naturalization, this govern ment is under no obligation to protect him while he is in his native land. The laws of Turkey also forbid a Turk who has naturalized in another country to return to Turkey, under penalty of arrest and imprisonment, or at best, expulsion. Here, too, the United States dissents, but in the ab sence of a treaty with Turkey cover ing the point, cannot guarantee to its naturalized Turkish citizens that they will not be arrested or expelled when they go home. The most Interesting angle of the situation from the American point of view is the future status of all these soldier citizens on their return to the United States. Several such cases are already, before the courts. For in stance, there is an American from De troit who served in the British army. He came back to this country on the promise of employment, and was ar- reated under the alien contract labor Taken in round numbers, a small army of Americans have enlisted un der various warring banners. But compared with our whole population, especially our total population of alien birth, the number of these fighting Americans is surprisingly small. Its smallness is a striking demonstration of the rapidity with which our immi grants become genuine citizens in heart as well as in name. The coast guard service includes both the life saving and the revenue cutter ^branches. It is under the treasury department. BABY WEEK. March 4 to 11 inclusive is "Baby Week" in Iowa. Various organizations are lending their efforts toward mak ing the week one of benefit to the state. The slogan is "Iowa's best crop—its babies. It's time to give them a week's thought."- Help in pro moting baby welfare work during this week will be given by the children's bureau, department of labor, Wash ington, D. C. by the extension depart ment, University of Iowa by the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs by the ,Iowa Congress pf Mothers by the Child Welfare committee by the Home Economics committee, Iowa Federation, and by the agricultural extension department of Iowa ||tate college. Have you seen anything that con vinces you the millenium ia at hand or even approaching? It looks to us as though the world is rolling right along in the path it has followed for the last five or six thousand years, during which time its history has been war after war. From time to time nations of pacifists have arisen but their fate has always been the same. What tt\e other nations did to them was a plenty. The retrenchment and reform com mittee' of the state legislature met in Des Moines Tuesday, provided an automobile for one of the state de partments, appropriated |3,200 for ex tra help in the same department, made provision for paying an extra clerk in another department and then adjourned: They call it the retrench ment committee. What are the spend ing committees doing? According to the allies, the dead Germans were piled up in heaps as the result of their assaults upon Ver dun while the losses of the defenders were slight. According to the Teu tons, their losses were surprisingly small, while whole heaps of French dead were passed over in the victor ious charges. Somebody's fibbing. If more people realized the willing and efficient way in which the librar ians at the public library meet re quests for aid in looking up refer ences or special topics, there would be a voider use of the many valuable volumes at the institution. There is a question whether March came in like a lion or like a lamb. The general wintry aspect resembled the lion but the snow and the absence of blustery winds reminded one more of the lamb. Every woman who is graduated from the university of Kansas must demonstrate her ability to swim be fore she will be given a degree. Each graduate must swim twice across the 'university gymnasium swimming pool. A British organization of bankers and traders is very much alarmed ovef the energy being shown by Americans in going after trade that formerly was in the hands of Eng. land. Well, the dream of years is coming true. The actual work on Ottumwa's new hotel has been started. One-sixth of the year is gone. Are you doing your Bhare to Increase the growth of Ottumwa? Our guess is that Wilson knew be fore he demanded it how the vote on his foreign policy would turn out. The man who drinks is rapidly be coming a most undesirable citizen. nn er S Percy, a Long Island youngster, always regarded, by his doting rela tives as clever, outdid himself when a rough-looking hobo invaded the yard one afternoon and asked where the father kept his money. "It's in his vest in the kitchen," said Percy. A few minutes later the hobo came through the kitchen doorway in a hurry, much battered and torn. "Smart kid!" he muttered. "Never said a word about the old man being inside the vest!" "What in heck isv the matter with your wife, Jack?" inquired a certain foremost citizen of the Arkansas neighborhood of Rumpus Ridge, ad dressing another prominent citizen of the same locality, who was hang ing over the fence, wrapped in pro found meditation. "D'know!" nonchalantly replied Jack Gap. "Jest some prank or nuther, I reckon. She's alius been sorter odd, you know. Looks liko rain, don't it?'J "But, dad-burn it, man, she ia tearin' her hair out by the roots and yellin' at the top of her voice!" "Aw, well they're her hair and voice, hain't they?"

"Never mind that,'' said the bake.', "it will be lesB for you to carry." "Very well," replied the boy, and throwing the halfpence on the counter, he walked away. The shop man callled after him and told him he had not left enough money. "Oh, never mind that," retorted the smart IrlBh lad. "It will be the less for you to count." HITEMAN I 4 Ray Torrance and Mary' Jane Haux were/ married at the home of father Welsh in Albla last Wednesday afternoon. Mrs..

Waterloo, March 2.—The first hot shot of the campaign for municipal offices was hurled against Mayor R. C. Thompson by Dr. O. P. Thompson, state dairy inspector, who addressed the meeting of the Child Conserva tion league at the Y. M. C. A. on "Dairy Inspection." The state official, himself a resident of Waterloo, direct-1 ly charged the present mayor with' having appointed as milk inspector man he declared to be totally lncomn? tent to fill the office "The present milk inspector admit ted to me that he was Unacquainted with the duties of his office, but de clared that he wanted the salarv whlch amount to $100 a month. I understand that he received the ap pointment as a reward for having aid ed in electing the present mayor," de clared Dr. Thompson, who further called attention to the fact that dur ing the present administration the custom of publishing in the newspa pers monthly reports of conditions in each dairy had been discontinued, and that milk is allowed to b£ sold as "A grade," although it does not meet the state tests for this grade. Dr. Thompson, after severely criti cising Mayor Thompson for this ap pointment, declared that not all the milk sold in Waterloo was of inferior quality because some dairymen were honest enough to place only their best milk on the market. He further stat ed that in his work he had failed to get the cooperation of the present city administration and urged the many women present to aid in bringing about a change at the approaching election. BUYS LIQUOR III CLEANUP PROCESS FINDS SOME FRENCH AB8INTHE, NOW SO MUCH SOUGHT AFTER. Dubuque, March 2. A Dubuque man who knows something more than a little about liquor is telling how he made a good purchase a few days be fore the saloons of Dubuque were clos ed. One night he happened, in at a saloon where the cleanup process had started. The proprietor and bartend ers were engaged in hauling old bot tles from the shelves of a cupboard and selling them for almost any price. Three dust covered bottles were brought out. It was thought they con tained some out of date cordial, but they were so covered with dust that the printing on the sides could not be read. The proprietor to|d him to take the three for 60 cents. The bottles, full quarts, contained absinthe, the French liquor now so much sought after because it is no longer manufac tured, the French government having enacted a strict law against its manu facture. The purchaser claims to have been offered |50 for a single one of the bottles, though it originally was worth less than $5. He has not sold and says he will not sell until he can realize at least ,$100 a bottle. "BIRTH OF A NATION" GIVES FRAT AN IDEA Iowa City, March 2.—The call of the Ku Klux Klan resounded shrilly ln front of Currier hb.ll, the girl's dorm'. tory at the university. Two hundred girls rushed excitedly to the windows. Below they say a group of shrouded night riders, the leader holding aloft q, burning cross. Again the call sounded shrilly. Then the party turned sharply and amid a clatter of hoofs vanished down Clinton street. "The Birth of a Nation" had just shown for a week in Iowa City and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity was merely putting its freshmen through some of the usual "stunts" of initiation week. Nine pledges, wearing the insignia of the Ku Klux Klan, were chivalrously amusing the coeds and others about the city. The fiery steeds were only broom sticks. The act was one of the best de vised this year for the amusement of the fraternities. There have been the usual barrel races up Clinton street, vaudeville entertainments on sorority house porches, and stunts of a similar nature. WOMEN OF PARISH ARE MONEY MAKERS Stone City, March 2.—That, the women of the parish are money mak ers was made evidept by the last an nual report of St. Joseph's Catholic church.

The little $20,000 stone church when finished two years ago, carried a debt of $1 ,500, only $700 of which remains to be paid. This rapid paying off of the debt in spite of the scattered nature of the community and the scarcity of work among the quarry men in winter is due to the work of the women. DAVIS CO.
