A CLUBWOMAN'S CREED," written by
Ella E. Lane Bowes, president of the Chi
cago Press league, is being widely circu
lated among clubwomen. It is as follows:
"Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us
be large in thought, in order, in deed.
"Lei us be done with fault-finding and leave off
"May we put away pretense and meet each other
face to face without self-pity and without prejudice.
"May we never be hasty in judgment and always
"Let us take time for all things; make us grow
calm, serene, gentle.
"Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
straightforward and unafraid.
"Grant we may realize it is the little things that
create differences; that in the big things of life we
"And may we strive to touch and to know the
great common woman's heart of us all, and, O Lord
God, let us not forget to be kind"
Down at the Creche on Park Wrldc avenue, the
little kiddies are laying out their best bib and tucker.
No society debutante, planning her first appearance
on the social horizon, is putting more time and care
in the details of her costume than the little maiden
at the Creche, who is preparing for her perhaps one
social affair of the year.
A picnic it is to be. A picnic at Hanscom park,
which the mothers who make up the City Federation
of Child Conservation leagues, will have in charge,
is the big event. It is scheduled for Friday, the start
to be made at 10:30 in the morning. Both luncheon
and supper will' be served by the clubwomen, and
lots of goodies vill be included.
This is the second outing the City Federation has

successful Mrs White or "Mamma White," as the

SOCIETY'S activities for the week rival those
of the busiest week in the1 height of the win
ter season, it would appear from a glance at
the pages of the social register.' ' ' :
The Muse of the Movies, (we leave her
christening to you,, dear reader), holds the
boards ; without question, for on Tuesday and
Wednesday at the Boyd theater, "One Summer in
Omaha," or the "society movie," as it has come to
be known, will be shown on the screen. -Local
scenes, local "movie" actors, and local action, we
are tempted to add, and local management, too, go
to make up a combination of local interest that bids
fair to make this enterprise a great success finan
Mrs. Charles T. Kountze is the moving spirit in
this, as indeed she is in every Undertaking for the
good of the community. This time it is for the bene
fit of the Child Saving institute that Mrs.' Kountze
collaborated, with several other Omahans, in bring
ing about the most novel enterprise ever undertaken
by local folk. ' j -
Young and old, man and woman, all gave their
efforts and enthusiasm toward making a real success
of Mrs. Kountze's endeavor. Busy business men
forsook their offices, pretty debutantes their morn
ing shopping, and attractive matrons their general
program of social duties, to appear in the "society
movie." ". , 7

Thumtnel, Eugenie Patterson, Lucile Bacon, Helen
Carpenter, Alice Duval and Ann Gifford are enlisted

Vieing in interest with the movies is the produc
tion of "Meg Burns" at the Krug theater the whole
week. "Meg Burns" was written by Sister Mary
Angela of St. Berchman's academy, which accounts
for the two-fold interest manifested in the play.
Omahans prominent in Catholic circles have taken
boxes for every performance of the play, making
perhaps the greatest demand for box seats than ever
before for any theatrical attraction.
The marriage of Miss Ida Darlow, daughter of
Mrs. Alfred Darlow and a niece of the celebrated
Borglums, to Mr. Lloyd Delos Burdic of Herman,
Neb., is an event of Tuesday.
The school set will enjoy two large affairs this
week, one on Monday to be given at the Country
club by Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Bucholz for the on,
Fritz and a college classmate, and the other on Sat
urday when Mr, and Mrs. Frank Walters entertain
for their children,' Miss Harriet and Mr. Waltman
Walters and for Miss Walters' guest, Miss. Edith
Highfield of Superior, Wis.. . , .
