Nebraska Potash Will Not Win I r.. i-: c a rui Renter, oays avery CITIZENS OF ORD WELCOME SPECIAL Greatest Demonstration of Day Given Preparedness Train in Valley County, Popoorn Center of the World. Loup City, Neb.. May 10. (Special Telegram.) Citizens of Ord and sur rounding country tendered the Union Pacific farm preparedness train its ' greatest reception today. Ord is the largest pop corn shipping station in the word. Three milliflh pounds of shelled pop corn are stored there now. This corn is shinned all over the United States. A committee of the pop corn association met the spe cial at Scotia Junction this morning and every passenger received a huge sack of pop corn. When the special reached Ord at 8 this morning, 1,500 people were at tne depot. Meetings there were tht largest and most enthusiastic of any so far. The men's general meeting was so interesting that speakers were unable to get away on schedule time and the special left thirty minutes late. Two speakers Were left behind to hold meetings tonight to discuss special topics. .The school meetings at Ord were the largest ytt held and several canning ciuds were organized. Big Corn Yield Expected. This is an especially good corn section when yield per acre is con sidered and because of the geographi cal conditions it is possible to plant later than in many other sections. With wheat a total loss, the farmers are turning to corn. Tractors are to be seen on every side and the corn acreage will be vastly increased. Silo talks are in special demand through this section and the silo experts find it almost im possible to comply with all requests for information. At Dannebrog six big meetings were held, three in the town and three in the country and there, as at Ord, every business house was closed while the special was in town. The banks at Ord and Dannebrog left nothing undone to further the work. At Boelus several good meetings were held and a number of the guests visited the hydro electric development plant near there. This power plant - is on the South Loup and the waste water is discharged into the Middle Loup. A wide territory is served from this plant, including the cities of Grand Island, Aurora, Polk, York, Stromsburg, Hampton and Phillips. School children at the stopping points are -being conducted through the special train and are shown every possible courtesy. The school girls, studying domestic science, are especi ally interested in the kitchen of the diner. Lieutenant Governor Howard and Prof. Holden are the speakers most in demand and they find it diffi cult to respond to all calls. Loup City was the last stopping point of the Loup trip' and the meet ings here were unusually large. The total attendance of the day was above 4,500 at twenty-eight meetings. Dr. Fling and C. J. Ernst To Speak at Nebraska City Nebraska City, Neb., May 10. (Special.) Patriotic rally of Otoe county will be held here Friday eve ning. Prof. Fred Morrow Fling of the state university, one of the most noted authorities on European his tory in the middle west, and Carl J. Ernst of Omaha, president of the Omaha school board, who came di rectly to Nebraska City from Ger many in the early 70's, have ac cepted invitations to make addresses. The committee on arrangements con sists of "Judge Paul Jessen, W. W. Wilson, W. H. Pitzer, Judge Arthur Bischof, Sheriff Fisher arid Ollie Stephenson. This is the first meet ing of its kind to be held in the county. W. W. Anness of Dunbar will preside. Lincoln, May 10. Chancellor Sam uel Avery of the University of Ne braska has taken issue with German professors, who have asserted Ger many will -win the war on American wheat fields through a famine of pot ash, of which Germany has had a mo nopoly. "The great supply of potash in the world is locked up in feldspar rock," said Chancellor Avery. "There is enough in our mountains of feldspar to supply a dozen worlds like ours for untold years." Nebraska fields do not need potash, Chancellor Avery announced, after in vestigations and experiments at the university farm. The chancellor said that probably within 700 years Ne braska toil would need application of potash. Chancellor Avery said: "Potash salts are valuable on land that needs potash, but worse than useless on land that dos not need it. Much of the German soil is so poor in potash as to require large appli cations. Potash is not used to any great extent in agriculture west of the Mississippi river." "The claims of the German pro fessors tnat tney will win the war through possession of the potash sup plies," Chancellor Avery concludes, "looks as though they were hunting desperately tor a final peg on which to hang their hopes of success." Twenty State Convicts Paroled to Work Farms Lincoln. May 10. Twentv-convicts at the state penitentiary here have been given uniforms of blue overalls and jumper and have been enlist ed in Uncle Sam's great army of the farm. These men. all inmates of the orison for some timer, asked that they be paroled to nearby farmers and after being subjected to severe oral exam inations they were allowed their tem porary freedom. I his action was taken by prison au thorities as a result of the insistent demands that have come in for farm labor. It is said that other inmates, as soon as they can qualify, will be re leased on parole. G. W. Stevens, Resident of State Since 1865, Dies Beatrice. Neb.. Mav 10. fSDecial.l G. W. Stevens, a resident of Ne braska since 1865, died at his home in this citv vesterdav after a orn- longed illness, aged 86 years. Mr. Stevens located at Brownsville, when he came to Nebraska, and moved to Beatrice in 1887. where he resided until his death. He and his wife cele brated their sixtieth wedding anniver sary July 13, 1916. He is survived by his widow and six children, three sons and three daughters. Missouri Pacific Pleads With Equalization Board (From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln. Mav 10. fSoecial. CnU nel J. M. Seibert, tax commissioner of tlie Missouri facihc Railroad com pany, accompanied by J. E. Minter, his assistant, appeared before the state board of assessment today in behalf of his company in an effort to prevail upon the board to not raise the valuation of his coniDanv. The colonel informed the board the Missouri Pacific was still working under a receiver and would be glad to pay anything the board wished to assess after it got out from under, but just now it would be very unfair indeed to make the assessment any nigner.
