It also voted to use influence and any other means of preventing the repeal of the new law which deals with the election of school board members. Another meas ure endorsed by the club is the bill providing for a civil service commis sion for the city of Omaha. On the recommendation of Mrs. J. C.

"Develop a strong personality," he advised the salesmen. "Call customers by their names. There are numerous ways in which you can find out their names without coming right out and asking them. This is a mechanical age and we are allowing too much of the mechanical to get into selling." In making of salesmen he said the first thing to give them is knowledge of the goods, house policies, proper presentation and so on. Then comes training, actual training in selling.

Teutons Think They Will Have War Won Before U,S, Is Ready Rerlin Via London), Feb. 5. Comment in the morning newspapers treats the breach in diplomatic rela tions between the I'nitcd States and Germany as a matter of great gravity, but all the editorials arc calm and moderate. The avoidance of insult ing language and cutting epithets is especially noticeable. Most of ihe newspapers say the news created no surprise, some of them explaining that this step was expected. All the newspapers str.ongly reject the imputation that Germany has broken its promise made in its note of May 4. laying stress upon the fact that Germany's promise was ex pressly conditioned on President Wil son's success in bringing England to an observance of the laws of nations. It is generally assumed by the newspapers that the United States will make an early declaration of war against Germany, for they say the submarine campaign can hardly be prosecuted without the loss of some American lives. The newspapers say the country must meet war with America, as the lesser of two evils. The danger of the United States as a war factor is treated as comparatively unimportant, owing to the remoteness of the area of war and the time that would be required to create an army. The opin ion is evinced in some quarters that the submarines will decide the war before the United States can take an active hand. 'Jack the Dog' Refuses to Let Police Take Him to Hospital "Jack the Dog," who is known to only a few as Jack Lloyd, civil war veteran, who lives in the north river bottom section, surprised police sur geons last night when he fell over in a faint in Steve Colombo's saloon, ap parently dying. He was in a patrol, bound for St. Joseph's hospital, receiv ing the commiseration of policemen who knew him and who thought him already dead, when he suddenly sat bolt upright and demanded to know where he was being taken. The patrol turned around and took him to headquarters. Later he was released on his own recognizance. He left $00 with Desk Captain Patrullo for safe keeping, say ing he feared to be robbed on his way to his shack in the bottom lands. "Jack the Dog" is a well known character, much liked by the fre quenters of the neighborhood.
