In keeping with its announced pur
pose to provide funds for child wel
fare services, the Jumble Shop, spon
sored by the Nebraska Society of Col
onial Dames, has “come to the rescue
of Omaha's day nursery program.
Although to be fewer in number,
child care centers to operate during
the three summer months will contin
ue to provide what has become to be
recognized as a vitally needed service.
These centers will be located at Jack
son and Central grade schools and af
ford sympathetic care and supervision
of children of working mothers who
have no other means of care.
According to the Family Service or
ganization of Omaha, an agency of the
Community Chest, which screens ap
plications of mothers wishing child
care centers’ servee, there are num
erous circumstances wherein it is im
perative that a mother work. But only
after thorough screening of each case
and after all other means are exhau
sted are the applications approved.
Applications are screened under
these divisions and the percentages of
mothers presently classified in each
are as follows:
Mothers who are the sole support,
47 per cent. W ives of service men sup
plementing government allotments, 12
per cent. Cases where it is necessary
for the wife to supplement husbands’
wages which are less than required
for the minimum family budget, 41 per
Under the plan, each mother pays
$4.75 a week for the day nursery pri
vileges. The Jumble school board has
approved the continuance of the prog
ram, which was an outgrowth of the
early war years. The School district
provides only the building space, equip
ment and utilities.
A recommendation of its subcommit
tee that the centers were needed and
should be continued was accepted re
cently by the board of directors of the
Community Welfare Council, another
Red Feather agency of the Community
The recommendation was forwarded,
to the Chest’s budget committee which
felt that in view of other commitments
it could not recommend to the Chest
board that funds be made available to
continue the project.
The Welfare Council’s board, how
ever, reaffirmed its belief that the child
care center projects should be con
tinued if at all possible, even if on a
further reduced scale, because of the
continued need. A committee was au
thorized to contact the Jumble Shop,
Family Service and the board of edu
With the Jumble Shop agreeing to
finance the program, arrangements
were completed to continue the care
ful administration of the project dur
ing the summer months just as it has
been in the past.

You are probably having aj
much trouble getting canning
sugar this season as I am. Whal
little sugar I have had to spare
I’ve used in making jells. Tlu *
other day as I poured paraffin wax
over the top of a jar, I began
thinking what an- important role
this product plays in conserving
food. -— —
Waxed paper, especially, is an
indispensable kitchen helper. And
do you know that waxed paper is
made by a process in which thin
sheets of paper are dipped in
melted paraffin similar to that
which you and I use on top of jams
and jellies? When we wrap foods
in waxed paper, we are assured of
freshness in all our foods — just
as the paraffin preserves and pro
tects our jells.
We housewives can make waxed
paper do a double job in our
homes. By reclosing our bread
wrappers, cereals, crackers and
other foods in their original waxed
paper wrappings — and by using
waxed paper to keep left-over";
fresh — such as sandwiches, meats, j
fruits and vegetables — we are
saving food and money for our
selves. Ard we are helping to j
release more food ta feed the
starving people of Europ?, as well.
One alert housewife nude the
remark that, “Waxed paper pays
for itself in the food it saves.” .
And, I believe, if we think about
It, we will all agree with her. The
roll of waxed paper in your
kitchen, for example, saves you
many dollars’ worth of food that
would ordinarily spoil without this
jrotectlon. No wonder housewivesi
fay, “Waxed paper pays for itself.”

The two scenes here show what can
be done with wallpaper at small cost
to improve the appearance of the typ-1
ical small apartment without any arch
itectural changes. With good taste and
a few dollars a drab, uninteresting
apartment becomes a bright and che
ery home. The apartment shown here
is typical of thousands throughout the
4'.tf, which can be made more live
table by the same type of wall treat
ment. A blue and white leaf-pattern
united wallpaper was the starting
point. New draperies, slipcovers, two
new lamps, and a change in chaiis and I
tables in front of the window comple
ted the transformation. “Doing over"'
th3 pla33, one room at a time, is an |
exciting project in which the whole fa
mily can take a lively interest.

i BREAD MEANS LIFE IN EUROPE NOW—This careful home
maker knows the secret of keeping bread carefully wrapped and
in the refrigerator. That way there is less w’aste, and, as the Famine
Emergency Committee says, we can spare the equivalent of six
million loaves a day to send to the hungry children abroad if every
American saves only a single slice a day. The American Red Cross
has prepared a series of such helpful hints for housewives; ask' your
local chapter’s Nutrition Service. —American Red Cress photo.
