SEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MARCH SI, 1917, EBERHART TALKS 08 PEACE LEAGUE former Minnesota Governor Explains Hopes and Methods of the Proposed League. EEPLIES ' TO ARGUMENTS Seeking to answer all the principal arguments advanced against the prac ticability of a LcagLo to Enforce Peace, former Governor A. O. Eber hart of Minnesota addressed the Com mercial club at noon. He maintained the idea is practica ble, that the eaguc is not an organi zation to stop the present war, but an organization looking toward the prevention ot another. . s . He .divided international questions and controversies into two kinds justiciable and non-justiciable. Justiciable questions, he said, are those which can be decided by a court on the basis of law and evidence. Non-justiciable, he said, are those which are merely a question of pol icy, like Chinese exclusion and others. These, he said, could be referred to a court of conciliation. "If a nation refuses to abide by the decision of the international courts," he said, "the other nations signing the agreement would use economic pres sure on her first, and if that was not sufficient would bring their joint mili tary power against her. The bringing of economic pressure is not a new idea it has been used many times before." s , It has been held that every nation, great or small, free or dependent, would forever have to remain in its present status, under the system of a league of nations of thisjtind. Mr. Eberhart sought to answer that argu ment by holding that if Ireland, for example, ever gained her freedom from England, she would be recog nized by the league. The speaker read replies from many of the European nations now engaged in the war, showing that they were all willing to enter into such a league. "We have expressions from every European nation now fighting," said the speaker, "showing that they would join this movement." He assures his hearers that the league stands unitedly with President Wilson at this time, and has . no nt ilniim mirtliincr in mhar. tiiuugu. v. ..jt.....B . rass him in any way in the present crisis. Their work, they feel, will dome 'immediately after the war. Teachers at North Platte. North Platte, Neb., March 30. (Special.)

Cy Once More Hits .300 In Matrimonial League "Cy" Forsythe is again batting .300 in the matrimonial league. For a while it looked as if his do mestic slugging average was due for a decided slump, but certain things have happened recently. On February 3 his wife, Minnie Forsythe, brought suit in district court asking a divorce from the Omaha base ball player, alleging that "Cy," named in the petition as Frank, hail been extremely cruel to her. And that was not all. She further al leged that "his cruel and inhuman conduct had humiliated her, causing her great mental pain and anguish. As a parting shot she petitioned that he had only partially supported her, notwithstanding the fact that his prowess with the willow earned him about 250 iron men a month. When the divorce suit came up for hearing in Judge Hay's court it was dismissed by Mrs. Forsythe. Ru mor has it that a reconciliation was effected on the eve of the base ball training season.

The closing of schools this after noon for the spring vacation of one week was made an occasion for city wide patriotic programs, which in cluded recitation of "Your Flag and My Flag" and Lincoln s Gettysburg address. The youngsters of Kelloin school gave evidence of whistling talent. From kindergarten to eighth grade in all schools the boys and girls were impressed by song ant! story with the meaning of the flag. At Franklin! school Principal Ann Hutchins went from room to room and asked the children if they were French or Swedish or some other nationality. They answered, "No, ma'm."
