Th names of those "bolting farmers" read quits familiar. The man with the calcium light seldom has any trouble in "spotting" them. A little community singing in Omaha -might help out patriotic outbursts from time to time. The spirit is willing, but the voice is often weak. Judgment for the state drives the corks deeper in the juice bottled up in the court house. But there's no telling what s legal corkscrew will do.

City people depend on farmers as much as farmers depend on city people. One cannot prosper without the other. Close co-operation is ths best and safest policy for both interests. New York proposes to subscribe for a billion of the Liberty bonds. That's just like ths Broad way folks, to want all the good things for them selves. But they'll have some competition this time, t An abundance of practical advice on sane war economies Is available for all who live to learn and apply it. Taking advantage of the knowledge demolishes time-worn ruts and makes for progress and profit, Appeals fof ths dairy cow and her offspring ought not to go unheeded in Nebraska. A per fect machine for turning our prairie grass into golden butter Is one of the most profitable manu facturing plants known. Sunshine follows the rain in endless succes sion, the routine operation of Nature's Immutable law, and result of this endless round is fruits wherever seed has been planted and tended. That's Why Nebraska Is blessed beyond any other region. Just at the moment ths Rockefeller Founda tion announced an additional $25,000,000 to its funds gasoline took the elevator for a 2-cent rise hi New York. For the sake of appearances the Croesus of Focantico Hills might defer action fof recovery for a few days. General Pershing finds it necessary to cancel his engagement for the University of Nebraska commencement and statehood semi-centennial ex ercises at Lincoln, In which he and Colonel Roost' velt were to be the headliners.

Pacific is about to emerge from re ceivership thoroughly rehabilitated and prepared with adequate, up-to-date equipment to cope with all the traffic problems likely to develop. The company during the receivership, which began in August, 1915, expended more than $15,000,000 on improvements, rebuilt more than 15,000 freight cars, and new engines, passenger cars and new tteight cars nave been bought at a cost ot more than $4,300,000. It was this rehabilitation of the svstem which enabled it to prevent any traffic congestion all last winter artd at a cost lower than ever before. In the first three months. of 1917 the Missouri Pa cifies gross increased $2,178,230 while net earn. ings gained $1,894,000 over the corresponding quarter of 1916. The amount available in the three months for fixed charges was $4,950,000, and the surplus for the quarter for the new stock would be $2,950,000, or between $11,000,000 and $12,000,000 for twelve months. There is $76,. 751,000 S per cent preferred stock, and the pay ment of this dividend for the full twelve months would take only $3,037,581 of the year s surplus. : If wa take the nine months' operating .results to March 31 results equally cheerful are found. The nine months' gross was $56,347,000, a gain of $8,385,000, or 17.5 per cent. Net after operating outlav and taxes was $15,105,000. a gain of nearly 40 per cent, compared with the results of the cor- ,. ... . t- - ! responaing nine niomns oi inc year previous. The Missouri Pacific will be but of the re ceiver's hands in less than a fortnight, judging by all the indications now st hand. The Case for the Liberty Bonds. Secretary McAdoo is a good salesman, how ever he may be qualified for other undertakings. He knows the quality of his wares, and has the faculty of presenting them in most favorable light. Mis presentment of the case for the Liberty bonds is simplicity itself, and therefore the more con vincing. Without oratorical flourish, the secre tary of the treasury very plainly told the folks of Omaha, what he has told others, that on the peo ple of this country rests the responsibility for the successful issue" of the war. Fart of the public obligation takea the form of furnishing money to defray the necessary expenses of conducting the war, This is elementary and is presented without decoration of financial folderols, that it may be understood by any who will stop to think for a moment. The fact that the treasure of the country as well as the manhood is included in the resources pledged by congress to the world for our part in the war is also undeniable, and this point, too, is emphasized by Mr. McAdoo in his bond-selling crusade. But he does not entirely stress the patriotic aspect of the issue, for he gives the ma terial side of the great bond issue its due weight. One of the most attractive investments ever set before the people is the present Liberty bond issue. It is backed by the honor of the republic and the wealth of the nation; it pays good rate of interest and is unapproachable as a liquid asset. Moreover, the whole of the proceeds of the sale will be turned back immediately into the chan nels of trade, to make business better. Any way it is looked at, the Liberty bond is a good thing to buy. And it is being offered in such denominations and under such terms as make it possible for everybody to buy one. That, per haps, is it chief attraction. Now, Let Us AU Oct Busy. In much counsel lies safety, and we have had much of counsel lately. Now, let us all get busy, for plenty of real work for everybody awaits the most serious attention s united citizenry can give it. Each division of our great commercial and in dustrial organization knows by this time what is expected of it, and each is eager to make good. Not a piece of all our great social machinery but has been thoroughly overhauled and put into the best possible working condition, and the smooth and easy operation of all justifies the belief that this is going to be the greatest year in all Ameri can history, so far as the production of needed things is concerned, Co-ordination of effort is required, and less of the keen and sometimes selfish competition that has frequently disturbed the harmonious working of the machinery. None are to be discriminated against, and none are en titled to special favor. It is each in his proper place, putting forth his proper effort, that is going to win the battle for America and liberty for all the world. Heading Off ths Plotters.. , Secretary Lansing has publicly declared no passports will be given to any American seeking to attend the socialistic so-called "peace" confer ence at Stockholm. The reason for this is that Americans are forbidden to take part in any pro ceedings, the outcome of which may be inimical to the interests of the government in sny of its undertakings. If the Stockholm conference has any purpose whatever, it is to arrange s separate peace for Russia with Germany, the most dis astrous thing that possibly could happen for the United States now at war. Such action would not only release the German army now on the Russian front, but would give Germany access to immense stores of food snd material needed for the further prosecution of the war, snd, instead of bringing hostilities to s close, would prolong them, and re quire an enormous sdditional expenditure of blood and treasure on the part of our other allies. When the United States entered the war, it was on behalf of the common people of Russia as well as for those of all the world. Russia's liberty more than that of any other immediately con cerned depends on the overthrow of the Prussian military mschine, snd only the purblind zealots of anarchy fall to see this. That they willingly co-operate with the kaiserized "socialists" of Prussia is one of the sstounding proofs of their mental warpedness. Socialists of France and Eng land have withheld from participation in the Stockholm gathering, and those from the United States wilt be compelled to. Dealings with Russia just now are sufficiently difficult without the additional complication that would be provided were any citizen of the United States permitted to take part in a conference that promises so much for trouble as that proposed by the Prussian plotters. It is well that our country will not be "represented" at Stockholm. What of the Dental Dispensary? When the free dental dispensary was opened in Omaha for children of parents otherwise un able to command the needed professional services, it was generally hailed as a good move and a fore ward step In community progress. The institu tion was originally made possible by a group of enthusiastic public spirited dentists, volunteer ing their time, and the assistance of generous friends in providing equipment snd supplies. It is already evident, however, that this dis pensary cannot continue in its full usefulness on the basis of a wholly private charity and the ques tion at once propounds itself, "If it is worth while, why is it not properly chargeable, at least in part, on the community, which is the real beneficiary?" Where we have a county physician for the indi gent sick, a city health department to enforce san ction, school nurses to look after the health of the children in the schools, it would not be going far to appropriate money out of the public treasury to take care of the poor children's neg lected teeth. If this is advisable, surely some way ought to be found for the county, the city and the school district to co-operate ratably to that end, on condition, of course, that the dentists who have ahouldered this humanitarian work are willing to continue to do their part, as they doubtless are. In the early days of the war the ears of Ameri. can tourists in London were bombarded with hopeful expressions of the United States joining forces with the Allies. These were dark days in the British capital. German armies were moving on Paris with irresistible speed. The battle of the Marne was yet to come. British hearts were fearful and hope turned to the west for succor, Long delayed hope now approaches realization to the full. Units of the American forces yet to come carry to the British metropolis living evi dence of the help prayed for and their welcome fairly measures the depth of national gratitude. A round of activities at the officers' training camps, beginning at 5:10 a. m. snd ending at 10 p. m., spells business from start to finish. It goes without saying that every minute of the remain ing seven hours of the twenty-four will be utilized to the full in hitting the tick. Floating the Liberty Loan By Frederic J. Haskin Washington, May 22. What are you going to do about it? That is the attitude of the world to wards the United States today. We have an nounced our intention of playing a decisive part in the war and it's our turn to move. The first thing before the nation is this little matter of absorbing a $2,000,000,000 bond issue and calling for more. , Congress passed with a rush the measure au thorizing the raising of $7,000,000,000. While every other proposed law was being torn to pieces and patched together again and raked by cross-fires of criticism, this immense financial measure went through on a unanimous vote. It was the biggest single financial bill ever passed by any national legislature and it went through in quick time without one voice raised in dissent a characteristically American proceeding. There was plenty of pride over that and just a little too much tendency to regard the achievement as achieved. That was only the beginning. Then offers to subscribe began to pour in; for a time they came at the rate of $500,000 a min ute. That sounded pretty well, too, and the coun try was proud of it, but -there was a tittle too much tendency to take it for granted that this rush of offers would take care of the loan. A J treat many people actually got the idea that the oan was over-subscribed, that there was neither necessity nor use in further subscriptions. That idea was quite incorrect. The loan is not over subscribed today nor anywhere near it . There are hundreds of millions still needed. The Ameri can people must act. The men in charge of the loan do not like to talk about obligation and duty in connection with it. These new bonds are an attractive proposition financially in many ways. Nobody is giving any thing away bv buying a bond. The buyer is do ing a patriotic deed and getting a gilt-edged in vestment paying 3'i per cent, free from taxation, with the finest security in the world behind it. As one man puts it, should the time ever come when the United States will not be able to pay inter est and principal on these bonds the world will be in such shape that none ot us win care wnat happens. The newlv created publicity bureau of the Lib erty loan is going after the job in a fighting spirit. The publicity campaign it will stage promises to De me warmest mat America, Dirmpiatc ui scien tific publicity, has ever seen. The publicity bu reau is in charge of Robert W. Woolley, formerly director of the mint, and Mr. Woolley is at pres ent one of the busiest men in the western hemi sphere. Every conceivable means of telling the public about the Liberty loan, its advantages,' its patri otic significance and the need for subscribing to it will be worked ovartime. If it is humanly pos sible to tell the story to 104,000,000 people in less than thirty days the publicity bureau is going to do it. The task is no light one. As a reader of the daily papers you already know all about the Liberty loan. But even in the United States there are people who do not read the daily pa pers, in English at least. There are more than 300 dailies printed in the United States in for eign languages. Through this foreign language press the officials hope to reach several million American citizens and residents who would other wise never know what is going on. To detail all the methods of reaching the peo ple that the publicity bureau plans to adopt would take too much space. The moving picture line is tvmcal. It is well known that 10 per cent of the American people go to the movies every day. There they will see printed paragraphs explaining the Liberty loan thrown on the screen. Just be fore the big Charley Chaplin feature an experi enced bond salesman will step before the curtain and give a little talk on the Liberty loan. (Jut in the lobby of the theaters will be a desk and a man behind it and a pile of blanks whereon you may subscribe to the Liberty loan. If you want to subscribe and haven't the cash for the neces sary 2 per cent deposit a salesman will take your name and address and arrange to call at your convenience. This scheme has been worked out completely in New York and is expected to spread to numerous other cities. The various salesmen and speakers will not be in government employ, but turnisnea oy private organizations. Besides alt the usual avenues of publicity the bureau is to make use of many unusual ones. If you go to vaudeville shows you may expect to hear the Liberty loan frequently mentioned on the stage. If you walk down Broadway you may expect to aee a flaring sky-sign urging you to subscribe to the loan. There ia already an elec tric sign of this kind on Pennsylvania avenue in Washington. All government correspondence will be stamped with the alogan "Your first patri otic duty buy a Liberty bond." It is proposed to cancel stamps in all postoffices with a starnp that prints the same legend on every envelope in the United States mails. Mail carriers may wear the legend on their hats. buttons marking tne wearer as an owner oi a Liberty bond are to be given to subscribers. In this way every man and woman can show the public at targe that he or she has done the first tiling toward winning the war. The officials of the treasury have had no lack of co-operation in their efforts. Big companies of all. sorts are closely enough in touch with affairs to know the importance of prompt action and hun dreds of them have come forward to help in get ting the hpnds in the hands of their employes and the general public. Many such concerns have bought the bonds outright to re-sell to their em ployes on easy payments. The hanks of the whole nation have responded hobly to the call. But banks and big companies alone cannot turn the trick. It is a job for the whole people, for every American. , . There have been several single subscriptions for $25,000,000 worth of bonds. The wealthy classes as a whole have responded well, largely because they are in a position to know the ad vantages of the investment and also just how mat ters stand. They are in touch with finance. Sev eral million Americans are too busy earning their livinga to keep in touch with finance. These are the people to whom the government looks to save the day. Subscriptions for bonds of $1,000, of $500, of $100, of $50 these are the subscriptions the treasury is waiting for. They will come just as soon as the nation realizes they are needed. Millions of individual names on the subscription blanks are needed to tell the world what Amer ica knows already that this country is In the war and back of the war from top to bottom and from coast to coast. Readers of The Bee can obtain literature and blanks giving full information as to the Liberty loan by writing to The Omaha Bee Information Bureau, Washington, D. C, enclosing a 2-cent stamp for reply.) People and Events A police raid on the piggeries of South Phila delphia last week netted 300 pigs of various sizes. A crowbar brigade demolished the pig shanties at the same time and made a general cleanup of the locality. Guying sports on Long Island sprung a $20 bluff on a local fat man weighing 300, conditioned on his flying across the bay as a passenger on a hydro-airplane. The, fat man won the money handily and is eager to meet more bluffers on the same terms. Agitation for household economy caused a de cided slump in Chicago's garbage can. A reduc tion of one-half in garbage haulage attests greater care, less wastage and conservation in a desirable direction. It means s substantial saving at the household purse.

Kindly adviae me as to this question: Does a child have a birthday on the day that the child la actually born? To state It differently, is the day on which a child Is 1 year old the first birthday or the aecond birthday? This question will become of some Importance on ths registration day and should bs settled definitely. If a man of 80 years of age, but not yet 81. should claim that he had already attained his thirty-first birth day, how can this claim he resisted? Please print the reply in The Even ing Bee or kindly send it in the mall. SILAS ROBINSON. Ana 8o far as Ths Bee knows, this point has not been passed upon by the courts. It la logically true that the day on whleh a child Is born is its birthday and that the day it ia 1 year old la the aecond birthday, but only the first anniversary ot that event It la alao true that the child is not 1 year old until it has reached the first anniversary; it follows equally that a man ia not 11 years old until he has attained the thirty-first anni versary of his birth. Confusion msy arise between the use of the terms, but safety would seem to He on the side of ruling that a man la 80 until he ia 31. Ireland Must Be Wholly Free. Omaha, May 22. To the Editor of Ths Bee: Ireland must be absolutely all free, without any English govern ment strings on her In the hands ot her traitors. Its time this great re public and the world In general open their eyes to facts that have been go ing on in England for years and are openly going on today. Who are these men, Ed Carson and Bonar Law? Sir Edward Carson, first knight of the ad miralty and Bonar Law of the ex chequer? Ask how they come by these titles and you have it all. Espe cially when I tell you I am only one of the thousands thst feel and know these honors and titles were never given to either of them for any brll liancy or wise scholarship, not for any beneficial or wise statesmanships, not even for the good they have done Eng land or can do England, as these are the vipers that England would have the world believe that she intended to do justice to Ireland with. Now the day has come that the peace, prosperity, happiness and fu ture welfare of England and Ireland means only Justice to the citizens of both and that men who have betrayed their country for titles like Carson and Bonar Law, have no longer a voice in the public interests and the sooner Lloyd George and English house of fiarllament understand this the better t will be for the country and its peo ple. A view which hardly agrees with Lloyd George's statement that for the first lima Ireland and not British statesmen will have charge of their own problems. It was never further from the truth. DR. W, J. M'CRANN. York County's Roll of Honor. York, Neb., May 22. To the Editor of The Bee: On several occasions dur ing the last few weeks you have pub lished "rolls of honor," In which you named counties and cities that have responded well to the call for volun teers. In none of these "rolls of honor" have I seen the name of York or of York county. Why this dis crimination? It is extremely doubt ful if there is another county In Ne braska that can excell York county's record in this respece All told, this county has responded with nearly thirty recruits for the navy and with Company M of the Fourth Nebraska infantry. This means a contribution of more than 100 stalwart young men from this county to the nation's de fense. But this is not all. of York county's record. Company M of the Fourth regiment was formerly Company A of the First regiment and is perhaps the oldest guard company In the state. Company A lost Its letter in the reor ganisation a year or so ago. But as Company- A of the First Nebraska It played Its part in the Philippines and all Nebraskans are familiar with that splendid record. In view of all the facts, is it not due to the young men ot York and York county, and to the city and county also, that due recog nition be given? Of course "Y" Is away down In the list, but it seems to me that in the circumstances the name "York" should appear well .towards the top of the list. WILL M. MAUPIN. Price of Milk in Omaha. Omaha, May 2 To the Editor of The Bee: This morning my dairy man informed me that In the near future he would be compelled to raise the price of milk to lg cents per quart, the same as the dairy-men of Kansas City are charging. While I along with others think that he is not making any money or in fact coming out even at the present price, with corn selling at $60 per ton and hay at 830 and help higher priced than ever before. Still I don't believe It necessary to charge 15 cents per quart, but believe that a price of 12 Vs cents or 13 cents would be fair to the dairymen and general public. Would like to hear from others on this. R. L. MATHEWS. 1014 South Twenty-seventh street. Roosevelt at San Junn Hill Omaha, May 14.
