WIDEMANN'S COAT MILK LABORATORIES rkrsktosBMg ..SsaFnadM Gold by Druggists PEACE TALKS ILL PRELIMINARY CONFERENCES OF ALLIES ARE SET FOR MIDDLE OF THE MONTH, Believed That Nations Represented at Conference Will Agree on Some Peace Points Before Christmas, But Must Extend Armistice. Paris.—December 16 has been defi nitely set as the date on which the preliminary conferences will begin be tween President Wilson and Premiers Lloyd George, Clemenceau and Or lando. The program thus far developed warrants belief that the nations now represented by these men will agree on some points of peace before Christmas. The smaller nations are then expected to be consulted as to details. Germany will not be called In before late In January, It is believed, and than only to hear the results of the allied-American deliberations and to suggest modifications. Meanwhile the armistice will have to be prolonged and that question al ready is being considered. No diffi culties are looked for on that score. The genera! feeling here is that once the allies and America have agreed on the main points, they will impose the peace terms upon Germany with little discussion. It seems obvious that the central powers' settlement of their own gov ernmental and social problems will have a considerable bearing upon the final peace treaty. None of the delegates are making extensive reservations at Versailles, which Is taken as proof that the all important work is to be done at the foreign office on the Qual d'Orsay, with only two or three plenary ses sions, including the final ratification at Versailles. Premier Lloyd George and a few others, however, may continue to re side at Versailles while the congress lasts. KAISER FORMALLY ABDICATES. Text of Former Emperor's Act of Renunciation. Berlin.—The text of the former em peror's act of renunciation, which was issued by the new German government, "In order to reply to certain misun derstandings which have arisen with regard to thetibdlcatlon," follows: "By the present document I re nounce forever my rights to the crown of Prussia and the rights to the Ger man imperial crown. I release at the time all the officials of the Ger man empire and Prussia and also all officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the Prussian navy and army and of contingents from confed erate states from the oath of fidelity they have taken to me. "As their emperor, king and supreme chief I expect from them until a new organization of the German empire exists', that they will aid those who ef fectively hold the power In Germany to protect the German people against the menacing dangers of anarchy, fa mine and foreign domination.

Lincoln, Neb.—The right of employes In Nebraska to combine to secure higher wages or improve their working conditions, was upheld by the supreme court In an opinion affirming a de cision by the district court. DEMOBILIZATION GREAT PROBLEM BEFORE ENGLAND Turning Millions of Soldiers Back to Civil life Will be l>one by Degrees Will Get Job and Man Together. LONDON.—The British govern ment has completed its basic plans for demobilization of the army and providing employment for the man whose sole business for four years has been war. It is calculated that 60 per cent of the men in the army will go back to their old jobs or have new ones awaiting them, but taking care of the remainder even though every ounce of man-power will be needed after the war, presents a most difficult problem. It will be a long tedious task to transform millions of men from khaki to civil life and must be done by degrees. By the plan agreed upon these degrees have been fixed upon the needs of industry with certain consideration being given to mar ried men or those who may other wise be needed in the home. Record of Each Man Kept The government has a record of what each man is best fitted for in civil life. The ministry of public service which has efficiently compiled thiB data has, together with other official agencies, prepared a list of necesary industries in the order of what is deemed their importance. The first few are called "key" trades, many of which prduce materials needed for use in other trades. The idea is that it would be useless to release a lot of structural steel work ers ahead of the men who produce steel. The trades list is complete, but will not be announced because of controversies it might arouse. The fact that a man has a job awaiting him will not insure his The government would like to be rid of that class, but it cannot handle more than half the army at one time hence a rigid ad herence to industrial needs. A sol idler may be a diamond setter with a job to go to while hjs trench mate may be a railway brakeman without ,a job. The brakeman will be taken first and given an opportunity to go to work. Rail Workers and Miners Wanted It is reasonable to suppose that railway workmen, if not heading the ,"key" list, are very close to the top of it and also that miners are well ; up. It is vitally necessary to demob ilization plans to have the railways in running order and the miners are needed to increase the fuel supply for industries and home comfort. And so on down the long list until prac tically every recognized trade is in cluded. When a man has been selected for discharge he will be sent to a col lecting camp, the most of which of course will be in France. He will then be sent to a distributing camp in England, where he will receive his allowance for civilian clothing. He will be given a month's furlough •which will mean that he will be on army pay while getting located in hew work. From this stage the min ister of labor assumes charge. He will have the aid and co-operation of local employers, associations and labor unions. Already long lists of jobs open to soldiers have been pre pared. It remains tfor the govern ment, employers and unions to get the job and the man together. early release. 4 AMERICAN PRISONERS NOT TREATED CRUELLY WASHINGTON.—American pris oners returning from German prison camps complain of scarcity of food and bad housing conditions. General Pershing has informed the war de partment, but there is no evidence of .discrimination against Americans nor any authenticated report of brutality toward them. The war department Monday Is sued the fpllowing statement based on a cable from General Pershing, dated November 29, and sent in reply to an inquiry cabled by General March: "American prisoners released from German prison camps complain of poor and scanty food and bad hous ing conditions. Only a small precent age of those who are sick are hospi tal cases. The majority are suffering from slight colds and the prospect is that all will recover rapidly with pro per food and housing. There is no evidence of discrimination against the American prisoners. "Among 7000 prisoners of all na tionalities who have been released there is authenticated instance of brutality against the Americans. "The majority of the American prisoners state that the German sol diers also suffered food privations, but that .in cases where the supply of food was insufficient food for the prisoners was cut off before that for the German soldiers.'' -4 GERMANS LEAVING RUSSIA.

The schools of the state have lost practically two months of work, and It will be fully two months by the time the schools ,ln this city will again open, the date set being December 16, provided the situation justiflees. There will be no making up for "lost time,'' says the state board of education, at least there will be no specific rules set forth to that effect by the state board. This matter will be left to the counties and various school units of the state. It may be impossible to extend the time In any county owing to the budget owing to the fact that teachers' salaries are going on just the same as if they were teaching during the close down. If the time of keeping the schools open were extended it would re quire additional funds for salaries, so it is quite likely that the schools .will work harder than usual during the time they are open and close down at the usual time in the spring. ————4 SPENT MONDAY EVENING AT THE RIVER SKATING The following people enjoyed an evening of skating at the river: Misses Loa Martin, Irene Good, Alene Younle, Marie Dore, Messers, Theron Carruth, Presky Cherrlngton and Carr Beebe. ♦ floyd McDonald heard from Word has been received In Black foot from Floyd McDonald, who is with the engineers in France, stating that he had been wounded again, in the left arm.

But send the ad dresses of the boys in France or any where in the service.
