THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JUNE 18, 1916.
TERRIFIC DRIVE OF
Russian! Seport farther Successes
Against Teutonic Forces
Day by Kay.
170,000 CAPTIVES Df FORTNIGHT
London, June 17. The forward
drive of the Russian armies in Vol
hynia, Galicia and Bukowina con
tinues with apparently undiminished
successes. From the Pripet marshes
southward to Czernowitz, the forces
of General Brusiloff, according to re
ports from Petrograd, are throwing
back counter attacks and are advanc
ing. In thirteen days the Russians
have taken prisoner almost 170,000
men and have captured immense
stores of war booty, says the Russian
war office. -
Battles southeast of Lutsk, between
Kozin and Tarnovka and northwest
of Buczacz have brought further suc
cesses to the Russian arms. lit an
action on the Bluichevka river, south
east of Lutsk more than 500 men
were captured after the attacking
Russians had forded the river.
v Take 6,000 Captives.
The fighting continues northwest of
Buczacz, where the Germans are co
operating with the Austrians, but the
Russians report the capture here thus
far of 6,000 men from the Teutons.
Attempts of the Austrians and Ger
mans to take the offensive on many1
sectors of the long front were re
pulsed, according to Petrograd. The
Russian war office also chronicles the
repulse of attacks in the region of
Sokul, southeast of Kovel, one of the
objectives of the present Russian
drives. Berlin reports the capture of
400 Russians during an attack on a
German position north of Przewloka.
Around Verdun the French and
German armies were inactive during
the day, there having been only inter
mittent bombardments. Paris says it
has been confirmed that the French
attack of Thursday on the slope
south of Le Mort Homme resulted in
the capture of German trenches on a
front of about two-thirds of a mile.
While London claims further ad
vances for the British forces in Meso
potamia in the, region of Kut-EI-Amara,
Constantinople asserts the
British have retired from within the
range of the lurkish guns. The oc
cupancy of Imcn Mansura on the
south bank of the Tigris and the push
ing forward of British trenches to
within 200 yards of the Turks at San
nayiat on the north bank of the Tigris
river are claimed by London. On the
other hand the Turk say the British
camp has been removed from Felahie,
on the Tigris below Kut-EI-Amara,
owing to the activity of the Turkish
guui against it. ,
British forces operating in the east
ern part of German East Africa have
made further advances and have oc
cupied two villages. Near the coast
the British have taken Korogwe and
also have seized positions in the Vic
toria Nyanza sector. ..v-

First Group of Armour Girli Leave
Today for Camp at King's
WHOLE FORCE TO HAVE OUTING
"Oh, girls, won't we halve just the
So exclaimed two or three of the
first group of Armour girls who will
participate in a one week's vacation,
expenses all paid, at Camp Howe,
King's lake. The party will Irave this
morning at 7:30 o'clock in two big
touring cars furnished by the com
pany. Howard, Orchard, timekeeper
a,t the plant, has charge of the ar
rangements. Swimming, fishing, woods explor
ing, most anything that comes with
a real up-to-date camp, will be on the
schedule of the packing house girls.
No expense has been spared by the
company to make the trip the most
delightful possible. Each week a
bunch of twelve girls will be dis
patched to spend seven days. Auto
mobiles will be used in each case if
the weather permits, v
Living at the camo wil be in house
tents, 10x12 feet, with boarded floors.
In each tent are two beds, a small
dresser and a couple of chairs. Every
thing that would go to make up the
ideal camping outfit is provided. Fish
ing tackle, bathing suitj and all other
outdoor accessories are also furnished.
Last year not all of the girls at the
plant would make ttie trio for no
other reason than, as General Man
ager R. C. Howe of the plant explains,
"they couldn't sie why Armour & Co.
should give them something for noth
ing." But this year it is different. Ac
cording to reports, all but one girt at
the plant are enthusiastically looking
forward to the excursion and that one
hold back because of sood reason.
' The camp is placed in charge of a
woman expert, Mrs. ri. Hudson ot
Omaha, 'who chaperons the girls,
teaches them to cook, milk cows and
other things domestic. Three daugh
ters of Mr. King, who owns the land
and the lake ground, are adept at
swimming and usually teach the visit
ors how to swim if they do not know.
It is estimated that 108 girls will go
to the camp this year, requiring nine
weeks to complete the schedule.
The camp is situated at the junction
of the Elkhorn and Horseshoe riven
There are boats on the lake and the
principal living house is provided with

No Fads for Miss
Pittman in Doing
'Her School Work
Last week Sadie P. Pittman con
cluded a continuous service of twenty-five
years in the Webster school,
where she served as principal for a
lonir oeriod. Next September she
will be principal of Lothrop school,
succeeding Mrs. Nora H. Lemon, re
tired. During her long service in Web
ster school Miss Pittman has, to use
an old saying, "sawed wood and said
little." Her greatest aversion has
been publicity and her greatest de
sire has been to get results in the
schoolroom. She has refused to al
low any distractions or fads to be
introduced. Such added attractions as
dandelion pulling contests for ice
cream found no place in the Web
Recently a visitor, at the office of
the superintendent of schools noticed
a card containing the alphabet with
a catchy line of each letter, the pur-
iose being to assist the children in
earning their letters. Inquiry re
vealed the fact that Miss Pittman
was the author. Permission was
tasked of the superintendent to pub
lish the lines. The reply -was:
"Yes, but please do not use Miss
Pittman's name, because she does
not like publicity and would be dis
pleased if you used her name." '
Alias numail . is jiuuwii auiuug
school officials and principals for her
unwavering: adherence to the policy
of prohibiting outside matters to in

She has worked on the belief that
the school year is all too short as
it is and that the time of the pupil
is valuable, y s

Ten dirty-faced, bare-footed rag
gedy South Side kids opened their
eyes in dismay and stood speechless
with fright in juvenile court when
they heard that their arrest was the
direct result of action taken by W.
M. Jefters, general manager of the
Union Pacific. -
"Gosh," one of them muttered, tug
ging the trousers of the kid next to
him, "we'll ketch it sure." His eyes
were as big as saucers.
The youngsters were "flipping"
cars when Mr. Jeffers, who was in the
yards that day, spied them crawling
around in dangerous places. He is
sued an order immediately and the
next day Fred Palmtag, one of the
Missouri Pacific detectives, rounded
them all up and turned them over to
the juvenile authorities.
Judge Leslie freed ihem after giv
ing warning. "I don't want to see
you boys here again," he warned.
