WANTS ARITHMETIC BROUGHT TO DATE Superintendent Beveridge Asks Co -Operation of Business Men by Practical Suggestions. Superintendent Beveridge of the public schools has asked for the co operation of business and profes sional men and women in an effort to make the arithmetic instruction in the elementary schools serve the best interests of practical everyday affairs. "This is an effort to teach arith metic which will function with the practical affairs of the life of the boys and girls after they leave school," stated the superintendent Criticism has been heard that arith metic instruction in the schools has not been in step with the demands 6f business and professional life. The superintendent has asked rep resentative men and women of Oma ha to submit 10 typical arithmetical problems which apply to their respec tive lines of work. When these prob lems have been collected, the superin tendent then will group them and de termine what are the present essen tials for an elementary education. To Complete Annex for The Automobile Show The McCaffrey Motor company, building just south of the Auditorium, which will house part of the big automobile show, ' is now nearing completion.

The concrete floors will be finished with a special dustproof preparation, The chief objection to concrete floors in an exhibition of this kind is dust arising, and treating the floors in this way will make them even better than floors covered with burlap or rub beroid. The walls, ceiling and posts will all be painted an ivory white and this work will be started within the next few days. Mr. Colling, who has charge of the decorations, is planning some espe cially attractive features for this part of the exhibit. British Enlist Fliers ; For Service Abroad Sergeant L. T.

A new order which has just reached Food Admin- Ustrator Wattles requires the licens ing of all mills of less than 75 bar rels per day capacity. This makes a clean sweep of all mills. The 75 barrels per day refers to either wheat or rye flour, or both. All these nulls must aooly for li censes to the license department of the- federal food administration on or before February 15. the movement is to further con serve the wheat and rye supply. The mills under the regulation will not be permitted to store wheat or rye for a supply of more than 30 days. They are to use not more than 264 pounds of wheat, running 58 pounds to the bushel, in the manufacture of 196 pounds of flour. The profits must be only the average pre-war profits. The millers must make monthly re ports of the amount of wheat and rye ground, the amount of each kind of flour produced, the amount of tran and shorts produced, the prices paid for wheat and rye, prices received for the product and the amount of flour and feed still on hand.

ON WARIROBLEMS J. S. Baley Addresses Retail ers' Conservation Council on Conditions Which Have to Be Met. "Know your costs and depar mentalize them," was the advice given the Retailers' Conservation council at the Hotel Fontenelle by J. S. Baley of Chicago, talking on war-time business problems. He in sisted that a merchant sometimes thinks a certain department is not paying, when as a matter of fact it is paying better than anything else in the house. He cited a case which had come under hi observation -of a merchant who had among other departments a soda fountain, which he was plan ning to discontinue because he thought it was a losing department. A traveling man heard him talk of tearing out the fountain and advised him first to keep an accurate cost ac count on the fountain for one mont The merchant did this, and to his amazement discovered that the soda department was not only paying its own expenses, but was making enough money to carry along two of the other departments, which were actually losing. Must Be Courteous Speaking of curtailing the expen sive services in the retail business, the speaker said: "But do not cut off the little services that cost noth ing. Do not forget to be courteous at all times, and instill this same courtesy into your employes. Coach them; don't harrass them. Coach your employes In this matter as a foot ball coach coaches his team." Fully 5Q0 delegates are now regis tered from all parts of the state.

Ber tha Krupp's Husband. "I, would just like to have the kaiser sitting on that smoke stack and then take my high power rifle and see how many shots it takes me to knock him off." Charles Voss, farmer, owner of 440 acres of land in Dakota county and father of County Superintendent of Schools Voss of that county, made this answer when someone asked him what he thought of the kaiser. He came to Omaha to see United States Marshal Flynn about register ing. For, though he is a dyed-in-the-wool American, he never fook out his second papers. He took his first citizenship papers in Pennsylvania right after he reached this country in 4873. "They told me that was all there was to do and I always thought I was a full citizen," he said. Escaped from Germany. Voss was born in Westphalia, Ger many, near Essen, the seat of the Krupp gun factory. He went "to school with the lieutenant who. later married Bertha Krupp. At the age of 18, just before he was to begia his military training, he made his escape from Germany, was smuggled on board a ship which had already left its dock, aid came to America. "I have never been back.. I never wanted to go back," he said. "I know what life in Germany is and what life is in America. "If I had to go back I would jump off the ship in midocean." ' "Do you thing there is any chance that the German people will rise against the kaiser?" he was asked. r If they ever do nothing can stop them. But they are watched. Nobody can say a word without being de tected. I know that thousands despise the overlords, but they can do' nothing. You know what hap pened to some of the socialists that spoke too loud. Says They're Peaceful "They were put in the front line trenches. But if revolution once gets a start there that's the end of the kaiser. The German people do not like fighting. It is the officers and the military machine that make them do it. I have nephews over there and they are such as can't bear to even hurt a fly." "How soon do you think jhe war will end?" "It cannot last more than two years longer. Those people are so over burdened with taxes that they can't keep it up. Two years ago I had a letter from my niece and she says 'Oh, how tired we are of this warl' Think how they must feel now. With America coming in fresh, America will decide the war. And wheji it is over I think all nations will disarm.
