M'ADOO JUST LIKE FELLOWM HERE Eeoeption Committee Gets a Human Interest Glimpse of Secretary, Who loves Nebraska Air. BDY WAR BOND TO AID LIBERTY Treasury Head Tells Conserva tion Congress Members U. S. Must Help Crush Kaiser's Ambition and Power. Secretary of Treasury W. G. Mc Adoo, accompanied by W. P. G. Hard ing, governor of the federal reserve board; Sherman Allen, assistant sec retary of the same board; M. i B. Clagett, secretary to Mr. McAdoo, and a retinue of Nundersecretaries, federal secret service men, valets, etc., arrived in Omaha on an early train from Kansas City yesterday. Mr. McAdoo comes to Omaha as the premier bondsalesman of all time. He is head negotiator for the $7,000,000,000 Liberty bonds loan and he comes west to tell the people of the great grain belt why they should invest some of their money in the war bonds. Wants to Stretch Legs. "Say, ain't you fellows going to give me a chance to stretch these long legs of mine? I'm as stiff as a board." That was his salutation in broad Tennesse brogue to a com mittee consisting of Mayor Dahlman, T. C. Byrne, director of the Omaha branch of the federal reserve bank; Randall K. Brown, president of the Commercial club, and Luther Drake, president of the Omaha Clearing house. The committee had called at the secretary's special car, the Ad vance, to escort the party to the Fontenelle hotel, whore the principal bankers of Omaha were gathered to give an honorary breakfast to Mr. McAdoo. jr "Why can't you let a fellow get some of this fine western air into his lungs?" he continued, as the commit tee attempted to hustle him along to the waiting automobiles. "I haven't seen the equal of this since I was in Omaha last." I But Mr. McAdoo's appeal was not heeded. He was takeir to the auto with the members of the committee surrounding him. Wants to Ride With Jim. "Hold on," he exclaimed. "I don't want to ride with you fellows. Put the newspaper men and Jim Dahlman In with me. I can ride with a bunch of bankers and business men any lime, but I can t get a bunch of good newspaper men very often." "What do you newspaper men want to know?" asked the secretary. "Want to know about the bonds? '"No, tell us how the western people are responding to your talks about the bonds.' "Fine. Never saw anvthing like it. The east once thought it had a mo- nnnnlv of the oatriotism of this coun try. It's getting its eyes opened. The western ocoole are responding with their boys, their money and their en thusiasm. Understand, 1m not say ing the west is any more patriotic than the east is. but its not one wnit behind the east. After all, the east and the west have met in America and this is one country. Its all pa triotic. Bonds Will Go Fast. "My reception has been fine every where. It couldnT be beat. 1 am delighted, enthusiastic, and I know these Liberty bonds are going like hot, crackling bread before a hungry Georgia negro. Just before leaving the station the secretary's party was lined up before a battery of photographers and "shot." Don't Think He is Homely. "I than kt my stars every day, Jim," McAdoo said to Mayor Dahlman as the car was enroute to the Fonte nelle for breakfast, "that I am not as homely as these photographers make me out to be. My wife says I am a good looking man and says she never taw a photographer yet that could put me on paper just right. "Say, Jim, when I was here last you remember we ran away from the crowd and went to a movie? Yes, and there's the very picture house we went to. Wonder if we can't run away from these fellows this afternoon some time and spend an hour in that movie show. I sec Douglas Fair banks is going to be there and I al ways admire Doug. Can you ar range it?" Omaha Can Have Anything. "When I was out here last you fel lows dragged a local branch of the Reserve bank out of me; wonder what you will get ou( of me this time? Anyway, von can have anything-1 have got. The Omaha branch of the Federal Reserve bank is one of the most prosperous of all the banks and we expect it to do great things. Do you know, I think one of the best pieces of legislation ever enacted in this country was the Federal Reserve bank matter. At the bankers' breakfast at the l ontenelle. Secretary McAdoo had heart-to-heart talk with the local hankers concerning the big -bond is- . sue. In the interim between the brerkfast and the luncheon at the Commercial club the party was taken on an automobile drive over the boulevards. (Continued from 't One.) market for there is a this bloody war. But we do know that autocracy and freedom cannot both exist on this globe. "You. America, are facing the possi bilities that Belgium and Servia have undergone. For if this bloody auto crat should conquer, and take posses sion of the English and French fleet, and add them to his own great fleet and to his fleet of murderous sub seas, you are in grave danger of a treatment similar to that of the coun tries which have been overrun. This government faces, if defeated. an indemnity fifty times, one hundred times, as great as we will have to pay to win this war. The first defense of war is money. And for that reason your government has issued $5,000,000,000 worth of Liberty bonds which must be sub scribed for by the people of this country. These bonds wilj not be sold unless every man and women in your country takes part. Every one must buy at least one bond and as many more as possible. The contin uation of your country's national ex istence depends upon the success of the sale of these bonds. And we are asking that $1,800,000,- 000 be provided by taxation. We be lieve $10,000,000,000 is the total" we will have to raise before this war is over. You, as producers, are just as much interested as anybody in the country. Great Purchasing Campaign. "Do vou know what it means to vou to have $10,000,000,000 spent in this country in one year? It means the greatest purchasing campaign" this world ever saw; it means the greatest demand for what you people of the great trans-Missouri country produce that vou ever dreamed ot. It means that your market is secure and that the man to whom you are selling has the money with which to pay for what he buys. Mortgage on America. "We are offering you people who stay at home a mortgage on the en tire country a mortgage on the soul of America. We are paying you 314 per cent interest on your loan. And then we turn around and take that money and equip the boys whom we arc sending to the battlefield for you. "Are we going to be more tender with our dollars than with your boys? "The only protection we can give them is the best equipment that our money will buy in order that they may defend themselves and have fighting man's chance for his life. "And in the face of this, it is an eternal shame that, in the last week or two, there have been committees running down to Washington to pro test against paying taxes. Send word to your' representatives in congress that you want them to stop quibbling about this taxation, but to give our young men the best of everything and to do it quickly. "I've got thret sons who have vol unteered in the navy and if they adn't I wouldn't call theijy'sons. It we undertake to do with less taxes we would have to issue more bonds. There is not an unlimited bonds in this country, final limit. And bonds mean inflation. We have the strong est financial system in the world, but the taxation we are proposing is the smallest amount that is economically safe. "There's no question about the grav ity of the situation confronting Amcr. ica; the situation cannot be exagger ated, in fact. We cannot win battles with popguns. We must have the best guns, the best equipment. We must have the greatest organization in the world. "The torch of liberty is in danger. If it takes every drop of blood in every American freeman to keep that torch burning brightly, that beacon will still be a light to the world as the last American dies."

Watch o' Mystery." your wedding for the "Bride Secretary McAdoo pleased both his Commercial club audience and his Auditorium audience in the two ad dresses he made yesterday. Bankers and business men at the Commercial club rooms commented favorably on the secretary's earnestness and the directness with which he stated the nation's, situation with regard to the war. - ( Less than an hour after the secre tary had urged purchase of the Lib erty loan bonds in his two Omaha speeches, the Guaranty Fund Life company, through the United States National bank. subscribed for the bonds in the sum of $15,000. .Comment of Crowd. Some of the comment heard fol lowing the speech at the Auditoritfm as the crowd was breaking up is as follows: J. J. Kesler, North Bend, Neb. Right to the point; his sentiments and his appeal to the people were exactly right. He stirred up the peo ple so that there will be no trouble about subscriptions to the Liberty loan in this state. My son-in-law, W. W. Roberts, after hearing the speech of McAdoo, has determined to subscribe. E. Olsen, Omaha It was all right. I endorse everything Secretary Mc Adoo said. Georee E. Norman. State Labor Commissioner Plain and definite; no dodging or uncertainty about it. was well pleased. t Fred DeLamatter of Masonic Times I liked especially what he said about the ignorance of the peo ple both in America and in Germany about each other. He emphasized the importance of our waking up to the fact that Germany is very power ful and of our rising to the emer gency, ihe Germans, lie sain, are ignorant of our power and really ex pect to win in Europe and come over here and conquer us. Regarding the importance of our subscribing to the Liberty, bonds also I liked what Sec retary McAdoo said, and I think it very important. R. M. Clark, Omaha Practical, pointed, just right. Democracy versus autocracy was the main point, and the fatal optimism of the Ameri can people regarding this conflict was well scored by Secretary McAdoo. Mr. Eataugh, Chester. Neb. I was well pleased with the speech and ap proved all that was said. "Any conservation movement falls sliort of its possibilities if it expends alt its energies to produce well and then permits an excellent product to be wasted in its further preparation for human consumption,'' said Dr. W. C. llerrald of the United States Bureau of Animal Industry before the state conference on conservation of foods in the Auditorium. "America will have two armies, one military and the other civil, in indus trial pursuits. Our obligations are as great in one as in the other. Discip line is just as essential in the one as in the other. Are wc going to aid the enemy by wasting food? The answer is up to each individual. "I speak of the United States De partment of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Industry. The activities of dur department might be considered under the following three-heads: "1. Conservation of animal neaitn. "2. Conservation of human health. "3. Conservation of meat and meat products. "In considering the first subject the point I want to make is that the stock raiser who produces animals that are diseased is not helping to feed the people, but is a menace to the country. We must eradicate tu berculosis by the proven method laid down bv the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. There is now little excuse for any waste due to hog cholera, since doctors of the bu reau of animal industry have produced a vaccine for hogs against this plague. Diseases of cattle due to the tick are being rapidly eliminated by the methods of our department." Steel Common Rises to Another Highest Record New York, May 24. United States Steel common sold at the highest rtrJi. in it-s historv on the stock ex- rlunue shortlv after noon today, touching 130. The previous maximum was 129)4 made yesterday, and' in the great boom of last November. Steel's rise was marked by the cus tomary large overturns in that stock. many individual lots ot i,uuu io al most 5,000 shares changing hands. Other steel and iron stocks and the several groups of equipments and munitions were at highest levels of the year. Many from Omaha Attend . Meat-Cutting Exhibition Attending the meat-cutting demon stration at the Auditorium Thursday morning were many Omaha women, but in response to Dr. G. E. Con dra's request for people from west ern Nebraska to signify their pres ence none appeared. No one an swered to the call for ucople from Hammingford, Scottsbluff or Seward. Two from Lincoln were in evidence. These, are busy days of preparation for the happy groom-to-be of the "Bride o Mystery." Marine Commandant Thanks The Bee for Aid Rendered Washington, May 24. To the Edi tor of The Bee: The bill signed by President Wilson yesterday author izes the marine corps to enlist men between the ages of 18 and 35 lor the period of the war. Men who want to fight where the action is hottest on land, on the sea, or in the air will find the marine corps offers them a great opportunity. On behalf of the officers and en listed men of the marine corps I again desire to express our sincere appreciation of the able assistance rendered by The Bee in recruiting the corps. Omaha has responded splendidly to our calls. I am now asking your further co-operation. The special national marine corps recruiting week is from June 10 to 16 inclusive, and I hope the marine corps will be at full strength at 30, 000 before the close of the present fiscal year. GEORGE BARNETT, Major General Commandant. Farmers Say Action Was Not Intended as a Bolt W. M. Sharp of Hebron, farmer delegate to the State Food Conserva tion conference, says: "We did not bolt the conference, as we are reported to have done. We farmers simply had a meeting of our forces at a time which did not con flict with the regular meeting, and we do not consider ourselves as bolters. We are here to represent the farmers of Nebraska, instead of merely the farmers of the Farmers' union." Union Pacific Buys Five Million Bonds for Employes The Union Pacific, through its New York offices, subscribed for $5,000,000 of the Liberty bonds. The company is permitting employes to take over blocks of these bonds, paying in in stallments. Around the Omaha offices of the company the move is proving popular and clerks, both men and women, are taking over the securities. As a rule, the $50 and $100 bonds are the ones most sought. "Married at high noon," in sists the "Bride o' Mystery." PEANUTS BOOSTED AS MEATSUBSTITUTE University Conservationists Say Beans Make Ideal Food; Recommend the "Soy" Brand. "Eat peanuts and beans instead of meat," seems to be the slogan of the state university conservationists. Meat substitutes recommended at the exhibits of the Conservation congress are peanut loaf, peanut soup, baked macaroni with peanut butter, spag hetti and broad bean mould, pea roa t and nut croquettes. Soy beans, used only as a stock food ill the United States, but the principal food of the Manchurians. who even make condensed milk from the soy bean, is the hobby of Miss Aural Scott of the home economics department. "Its price is only one-half the price of other beans," said Mrs. Scott. "I had a hard time buying them in Omaha, but if the housewives ask for them the storekeepers will soon get them in stock." Many Kinds Bread. That bread made from wheat flour is not the only kind of white bread possible is demonstrated at the food exhibit. One booth exhibits vhite bread, using part com flour, rice bread, rolled oats, whole wheat and potato bread. "The corn flour is a new make, not cornmeal. A factory about to start in Omaha will make the flour."

If you want a clear head and good digestion you must not let your bow els become clogged with poisonoui waste from the body, as is always the case when you become constipated. Proper food, an abundance of water and plenty of outdoor exercise should keep your bowels regular. When that fails you should take Chamberlain'a Tablets.
