and wrote a letter which sad:
"Will you please give thcae coupons to
ome poor little girl whom you think
Santa Claus won't visit and who tried to

test la that the little girls who don't get

This week Is going to be another big

VISITORS TELL OF
RelstiYes of Omaha Women Lire in
City Visited by German Air
NO LIGHTS USED IN STREETS
Mrs. Margaret Shepherd and daugh
ters, Lottie and Ethel, arrived yes
terday from Sunderland, Encland, oa
the North Bea, and are at the home
of Mrs. John W. Illnson. 3135 Pratt
street, who is another daughter of
Mrs. Shepherd. Mrs. H. D. Black of
this city also Is a daughter.
The travelers crossed the Atlantic
on the Cameronla, which sailed from
Liverpool on Sunday, November 39.
During the first night out they were
equipped with life belts, and each
bore a numbered tag which Indicated
the life boat they should occupy In
case of emergency. All lights were
out while passing through the danger
Sunderland, a city about the slse of
Omaha, haa been visited by air raiders
during the last few months, although
the town Itself was not struck. A few
miles from Fulwell, a suburb, where the
Shepherds resided, a fair waa struck by
an air bomb and many people were killed.
Police regulations require darkness at
night. Lights in houses must be ob
scured. A neighbor of the Shepherd family waa
fined 13 shillings during the fall for neg
lecting to draw a curtain after night
fall. There are no street lights. Corners
of sidewalks are whitewashed te guide
pedestrians after darkness sets In and
lamp poets and trees along the streets ar
likewise whitened. Automobiles and per
ambulators carry small lights, which are
visible only for a few feet, .mt are of
sufficient brightness to a Voir collisions.
To attend a picture show, for Instance,
one first enters into a darkened passage
way before going Into the auditorium
of the theater. The purpose of all this
is to prevent making the city a target
for the air raiders.
Printed Instructions distributed by the
municipality to householders, state that In
cam of bombardment clt'sena should not
go Into the streets, but should adjust
respirators to their faces to be Immune
from the effects of gas bombs which
are burled from the air. The respirators
are face masks, which contain a solution
known as hypo. Mrs. Shepherd and
daughters say they slept for months with
respirators st their bedside.
Bosah Fell Near Fsuttory,
Lottie Shepherd observed, not long ago,
the flash of a bomb thrown from a Zeppe
lin. The bomb struck three miles from
her home, killing nineteen men In a
factory. In chronicling the news of these
bomb destructions the newspapers do
not give exact locations, the explanation
being given by Miss Shepherd that the
tnemy might make tise of the Informa
tion In making their calculations of flight.
"X suppose you have heard Harry
Lauder aingt" was a question asked.
"Yea,1 replied Lottie Shepherd, "tho
last time he waa In Sunderland he forgot
half a Jar of Jam when he left his lodg
ing, and he walked back front the depot
to get the Jam."
