The selling of lied Cross seals this year

taken up by the club women of Nebraska
at the following points: Omaha. Alliance,

Bcott'a Bluff, Stromsburg, Reward, Syra

Some of these clubs are sub-agents for
the first time this year, and some have
been working for tuberculosis prevention
ever since the Bed Cross seals came as
an apportunlty. Notably In the latter
class la Mrs, W. H, Matthews of Fremont
Woman's club seconding tho motion of
Omaha, Fremont erected a welcome arch
and thereon blazons fortha Bed Cross
eal In brilliant electricity.
Ashland Woman's club Inaugurated a
street clean-up campaign as a result of
selling seals; Aurora: hospital care for
tubercular patients; Scott's Bluff: sani
tary drinking fountains; tho same of

at tHe Postoffice
for Parcels Post
The Omaha postoffice Is to have a spa
cious lobby Joining the stamp room on
the north to be used by persons sending
parcels post packages after January 1.
Superintendent of Construction Crnmer Is
working on the plans now.
Superintendent Cramer, Custodian .Tay
lor and Postmaster Wharton have had
several conferences on -tho matter and
have decided, on tentative ptans for such
a lobby. There Is at present a largo
lobby for Uie money order department,
and another for UiOt registry department.
Tho Idea Is to segregate' In a measure
the pfopfo who visit these places to trans
act such business. As. the sending of par
cels through the mall- un'der tho parcels
liosUIs expected to be a largo branch of
the activity a.the postoffice It waa de
cided tho persons doing such business
should also be segregated by a lobby
The authorities feel that It would bo un
satisfactory for persons to handle the
parcels, get them weighed, and buy the
stampi to stamp them all In tho general
lobby of the postoffice when there Is a
crowd on account of the confusion. There
will likely be a window from the lobby
where scales will ho kept and a man to
do the weighing ul tho request of patrons.
There will be doors through which the
parcels can bo readily wheeled to tho
mailing room in carts after they hav
been dropped Into the slots.
