Bachelor ii Willing Hit Friendi
Should Know, But the Woman
SO NO NAMES ARE MENTIONED
Br MELLIFICIA Mar IB-
Widow do not take kindly to an
nouncing their engagements, es
pecially when a court decree, and not
the Grim Reaper, has liberated them.
When the man is a bachelor, as in
this case, he is perfectly willing that
all may know, but the woman holds
, Just what ethics here is fitting to
the society editor?
The couple areso well known that
their intentions to wed each other is
"a nice morsel of news to all the city,
exclusive of their own set. And news
is news that is as fundamental a
principle in the newspaper world as
the law of gravitation and attraction
in the firmament. But how far is
the society page immune?
Surely the woman active in the
social world should be given as
square a deal by the society editor
as a criminal may expect of the no
lice reporter. No matter how des
perate the record of a member of the
light-fingered gentry may be, no
newspaper would dare print that he
was planning this burglary or that
holdup. The police reporter would
have to wait until the deed was done.
If a perfectly sweet and gentle
fouled woman does not wish to an
nounce her engagement, it is surely
her own affair, especially when she
has passed through the period of
youth's effulgence when all the
world seems rosy and ready to re
joice and be happy with her in her
newly found joy.
It is really true that this marriage
is to be three matrons, who really
know, have said so, and the man has
told every friend that "she is the
sweetest girl in all the world."

CLUB WOMEN EAT
AT GIRLS' LUNCH
Guests at the Welfare Department
of the Brandeis Stores
WATCH THE GIRLS DANCING
Omaha's best known clubwomen
were the guests of the Brandeis
stores' welfare department at lunch
eon at noon in the new cafeteria and
lunch room established a month ago
for the girl employes especially.
Headed by Mrs. C. V. Haves, chair
man of the social science department
of the Omaha Woman's club, the (
clubwomen watched the girls enioy-
insr their lunch hour, partook of an
excellent luncheon furnished the
girls at a very small price and ex
pressed themselves as highly grati
fied at the latest effort of the Bran
deis stores in looking to the welfare
of their employes. Over .VH) girls
are served here each noon.
The clubwomen were the guests of
Thomas F. Quintan, but a committee
of saleswomen, including Misses
Margaret Kerr, Josephine Urady, ma
Llovd. Nell Donahue. Kebina Ham
merer, Elizabeth Zimmerman, Cesiah
Jones and Mrs. Sarah (iary, and Mrs.
I'illie Secord, acted as hostesses, ex
hibiting as great a degree of gracious
attention as in a professional ra
pacity. , i tnera neip uuu
Ervine Brandeis, Karl Louts,
Charles oethen and others in charge
also covered themselves with glory
in actinar as hosts to the proverbially
critical clubwomen, who attended the
luncheon to the "number of twenty-
five. ' .
The restroom was a gay scene dur
ing the lunch period. A young chap
struck up some lively ragtime tunes
while the girls danced. But .-alas,
they danced alone, or rather together,
for here, as everybwere, there seemed
to be a dearth of men!
. Sigh (or Men. .
"Of course, we enjoy this im
mensely,' but I do wish there were
some men to dance with," sighed
one roguish maiden. "Sometimes a
few of the men come up here, but
oftener they don't."
Aside from this, the restroom is
the center of much friendly activity.
"Meet me at noon in the cafe or rest
room," calls up rosy visions of good
things to eat, music for a dance and
a few moments to rest and chat, cro
chet,' tat or embroider, as the spirit
moves them, for many a busy needle
was plied during the noon hour.
"This achievement of the welfare
department will work wonders with
the girls," remarked one of the work
ers. "In the health results alone we
feel highly gratified, since many girls
who had but a small sum to spend
would usually make a lunch of ice
cream and randy or something

NOT JOIN STRIKE
Business Agent Sayi They Have No
Intention of Going Out
LABORERS ARE STILL OUT
In spite of the fart that it was ru
mored Saturday and Sunday that the
teamsters of the city would go on a
sympathetic strike beginning yester
day with the laborers, the teamsters
were all at work yesterday and de
clare they are not even contemplat
ing a strike.
J. T. Gruhn. business agent of the
teamsters, personally denies that a
strike is even contemplated among the
teamsters. I be teamsters do not in
tend to strike," be said. "They are
not talking strike, nor are they con
sidering the possibility of a sympa
thetic walkout with the laborers. The
teamsters' union is only a new organ
isation here in Omaha, and we have
business getting on our feet at pres
ent rather than striking "
The strike of the laborers still con
tinues, and the building jobs continue
to be lied up, except in tlte line of the
steel work, marble setting and few
other jobs that require only skilled
labor and little or no common labor.
The steel work continues to progress
on the First National bank building.
So far as outward appearances go
there has as yet been no conference
between the laborers and the builders.
