OMEN love men and children they
do not love, each othor."
This startling arraignment of
women on the part of Miss Mary
Shaw in the council chamber Friday evening,
coupled with her assertion that -woman suffrage
would bring about a greater understanding and
closer feeling between women, has set some of our
club iwomen thinking. '
What about the factions in most of the large
v omen's organizations in the city? Is the fact
that many a worthy movement receives no support
because of indifference, to say the least, to the
woman who sponsors the movement proof of Miss
It Is a rare treat Omaha club women are en
Joying In the presence of Miss Shaw, for there are
few women of the stage so identified with the
things that club women love as Miss Ehaw. This
uoted exponent of Ibsen is a member of the drama
committee of the General Federation of Women's
Clubs, and is especially devoted to "the cause."
Fesides this, Mkis Shaw is president of the Gamut
c'.ub, a notable gathering of professional women
in New K'ork City.
The drama section of the Association of Col
legiate Alumnae entertained Miss Shaw at lunch
eon at the Commercial club Saturday, and the suf
t'raglsts were fortunate enough to win her suffrage
talk Friday evening. ' Drama league members are
endeavoring to secure Miss Shaw's presence at the
Meeting Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock In the city
hfc.ll, when Miss Kate A. McHugh, the president,
wiil talk on "Dramatic Monologues," Illustrated
ty Alfred Noyes t'The Mermaid Tavern." Miss
Autumn Davies, whose talk was announced for
this date, will be heard later.
A large party of suffragists have arranged to
attend the Orpheum theater in a body Monday
evening for Miss Shaw's performance.
Both the Tuesday Morning Musical club and
the Omaha Society of Fine Arts have dates taken
this. week. The musical organization presents
Harold Bauer, pianist, at the Boyd theater Tues
day at 4 o'clock, and the Fine Arts society has two
red letter days, Wednesday and Friday. Walter
Scott Perry of Pratt institute. Brooklyn, will talk
en "The Taj Mahal Its Art and Environment,"
at the Hotel Fontenelle at 4 o'clock Wednesday,
rnd on Friday, at the same hour and place, he will
tell about the Alhambra, the fairy palace of the
Moors. Mr. Perry was the first person to be called
by the late Charles Pratt, founder of the Institute
that bears bin name, to assist him In tbe organiza
tion of this educational institution.

Miss Marion Towlej Who is to Be Formally Presented
This Week, Has Many and Variegated Accomplish
ments that Are Sure to Make Her One of the Most
Popular . Members of Omaha's Smart Set : :

THAT rare combination, a debutante full of
fun and gladness and still with serious
tinged thoughts is Miss Marlon Towle,
eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
Towle, who makes her bow to society at
a debut tea to be given Wednesday. Miss Towle is
the second bud to be presented this season.
Versatility is Miss Towle's distinction. Of
social accomplishments this charming young
woman is a past mistress: She sings and plays and
loves to dance; golf is her favorite sport.' 'She
doesn't care so much for tennis, although the
Vowles have a superior tennis court on the grounds .
of their home. . Neither has she yet cultivated the ,
bridge fever, the most brilliant society diversion..
Coupled with tbe natural propensity, of youtn
to enjoy life . to tho fullest, our sunny-haired
debutante has a sensible, businesslike Idea of
things. Sho wants to do something or be some
th'ng other than the idle ornament of society and
after being launched in society, plans to do some
thing worth while.
GROUP OF YOUNG LADIES who will appear in the chorus of "Uncle Rube," to be presented by the Angelua Social
on next Wednesday evening. From left to righi they are Irene Ryan, Bess Wilson, Margarete Moore, Grace McCollister,
Nora Finnegan, Frances Logsdon, Martha Moore, Mary Finnegan.
Miss Towle Is devoted to the interests of her
alma mater; 'Brownell Hall, and the alumnae as
sociation of which she is the president. She is
vbsorblngly interested in the new school building
and" as soon' as the trustees announce the plan of
their campaign, Miss Towle and her association
will take up the work outlined for them. Her
- executive ability: and capable qualities, with which
one la Immediately Impressed, will be put to good
service. '-' r ' ' -
The Visiting1 Nurse association, of which our
debutante! mother Is a director, is also nearby tbe
heart of Miss Marlon. "If I cm do anything to
help this good work, I will do," she- says.
;".The'girl, with the Julia Marlowe dimple," is
. the favprjte description of this week's debutante.
Indeed that entrancing dimple, her sunny hair, eyes
ltke the azure skies, prettily pink cheeks and
queenly figure together with a truly regal carriage,
fcll go to make a collective loveliness joyful to en
. counter. , ; .
Miss Towle and Miss Mary Megeath, tbe first
cf the reason's buds, who was presented last Fri
day, are Inseparable friends and companions. The
two girls were together at the Towle summer place
at Tepee Lodge and had a gay time learning to ride
horseback. Both young women were special maids
to the Ak-Sar-Ben queen this year.
After finishing at Brownell hall, Miss Towle
pursued her studies further at Bradford academy,
i. ear Boston. There, tbe bright-haired Omaha miss
was the life of the school aud was particularly
interested in the theatricals. She took the lead
ing part In a production of "Robin Hood" and
on the audience by her gay delineation of the
jaunty hero. Bradford Is known as a simple school
for girls, not conforming to the general Idea of flu
shing schools for fashionable young women and
this so accorded with Miss Marlon's tastes, that
she elected to attend this institution In preference
to all others. This simplicity of taste, which is
cue of her distinguishing characteristics, will be
tarried out In all details of tho debut at the ex-'
1 ress wish of the "leading lady."

ANOTHER white star week on the calendar!
A debutante will ' make her bow on
Wednesday. Of late It would seem that
there Is more interest attaching to these
debutantes than their mere coming out.
They have surprised us quite frequently and
set us to wondering. If an inclination is not evidenc
ing itself among the younger set to take the pur
poses life Just a little more seriously than has
Mtherto been the habit of the smart ones.
It is not sufficient that the current year's
Cueen of Ak-Sar-Ben is a student In 'New York;
Lit, now two popular girls, one a first, the other a ,
second year society girl, has left for Chicago to
take up the study of art.
The continued activity of the Franco-Belgian
Hellef society shows a similar trend upon the part
of the matrons. The most gracious hostesses of
Omaha are still "belging," as New York society
has smartly coined verb and participle forms to
express the Belgian relief work.
But society will "beige" differently this year
from the way it "belged" last year. The work of
the former season consisted largely of cutting, ap
portioning and sewing' garments. The knitting
ti 111 not be so much In evidence this year, the Bel
gian relief officials having called upon the mem
bers of the association not to contribute so much
of their labor as to give materials to provide em
ployment for the women exiles. The Belgian and
French needs are greatest for woolen, yarn and
fabric' materials to make up Into garments.
"We are still collecting old kid gloves," said
an active workor of the association, "and the de
mand for old table linen to be made into lint Is
Hill urgent. Then, too, we are begging all we can
rfach to throw away no garment that has warmth
In It and to send us pieces of carpet and old cotton
"I have been sending the Belgian women exiles
woolen yarns," said another worker. "I do not
deny that It has made heavy drains upon my al
lowance, but It Is taking nothing from local needs.
"If I make a sacrifice of my own enjoyment
and make less the sorrow of others, it is a personal
matter wholly, concerning myself alone. If-1 wish,
to practice self-denial. It is my privilege
