Civil Berries R clone.
Nebraska club women iave been among
the most active In the agitation for civil
snrvlc reform, and so escape any criti

outlined by the General Federation', com
mittee, of which Mra. Sarah Piatt Decker
,. rhalrmin. In her report recently tsaued
Mra. Decker aays:
The two preceding chairmen, Mlsa
Georgia Paeon and Mias Anna Clark, have
erven most Intelligent, unremitting and un
eelflah service to the work of the com
mit lee. They have sen; literature broad
cast, have arranged meetings and pro
OT.m. have made mighty pleas to clubs
and state federations through tit oolumns
r. th club Journals. After si years of
nianrfid rnrrs. thia la the result accord
ing to the statistics from the last direc
tory: Number of state federations In the
ener&l federation, forty-seven; number
hMvlna- committees on civil service reform.
twenty-six; number of Individual eluba In

having committees on civil service, nlnely

most vital work. The common complaint
received from club members are, "that
civil service reform for club work is com
plicated, obscure and political." It la the
belief of your chairman that no one of
these crttic'sma can be substantiated. We
hope to outline a very simple line of work,
practical and feasible for ' the smallest
group of club women. It la not political,
but the difficulty and the root of the mat
ter with women and men alike, la the fact
that, to be a genuine civil service believer,
one mus absolutely sdopt a new creed
that of non-partisanship. You must con
fess the sad truth that "your party la Just
aa bad aa my party, and I must agree that
my party Is exactly as corrupt as your
party." Unices we come to this platform
then our labors are In vain, because the
old traditions and beliefs, the old trans
mitted associations, the old parte sloarans.
stand like llona In the way of the progresa
ot tne women or tnia generation. But, with
It all. we come with faith and fervor to
ask for one united effort for thht cause
during the next two years an effort whose
results would be of a mighty Import, be
cause helping to overthrow the barrier to
righteousness In the nation, which Is the
bllndtnar Intolerance of partisanship.
The first definite work asked of every
club and state federation la that a com
mittee of at least one member, though
preferably three, be appointed, and be
asked to report for duty to the general
federation committee. An outline of pro
posed work will be given In the March

decided to secure the coveted endorsement
for Breen. Following this up with a plea
for harmony and declaring that the Cen

five to wait upon the Central club.

president reconvened the organisation, and
the spokesman from the Fontanelles told
of their mission, but got no results.

Chiracs Milliners Determine
Leaser Take Risks la

Thirty women of Influence In the aelectioa
of styles for feminine headgear In Chicago
have organised the National Ass or It ion of
Kctail Milliners, and the first official act
of that body will be to give a vogue to
small hats and big hatplna. Ths women
say they are weary of standing on step
ladders and building circular acaffolda to
conatruct hats of the slsea worn by their
sex In recent months. It I. not fair, they
Insist, for a milliner to be compelled to
risk her neck earning her living. They inti
mate that if big hats were not abolished
the millinery trade might become a more
hasardou. occupation than that of struc
tural steel workers.
Even If airships were developed speedily
enough to enable them to float about the
great hats by working on them, they would
not change their rotnda. Big bats must go,
they say. for the milliners sake. Besides,
everybody la tired of them. A. for the other
object, of ths association. Mm. Maere, one
of the principal promoters, says: We
believe ths dignity sf millinery artists
should be upheld by aa organixatioa. O00J

Ladies, Here Is the Way to
Find Real Bargains
Wise women read Bee Want Ads every day. They know they are for a good purpose,
else they would not be in The Bee. They also know that they get full value from their
paper only when they read the "Want Ads. Surely you want to know what others have
learned to value, so read Bee Want Ads every day. Start now you will learn many
things that will interest you. You know how society folks are; how they discard fine
gowns, wraps and furs after weariug them a little while. Haven't you often thought how
nice it would be if you could buy them? Your dignity would not be lowered a bit, and
think how much you would save. Your neighbors would not know that you bought things
from these people if you read Bee Want Ads. These refined people would rather sell
direct to you at a small cost than to dealers. You can also find many bargains in house
hold goods, too. Read Bee Want Ads every day, see how much money you'll save, and
how easy it is to have the best of everything. '
