Goings and comings during the hol
iday season have brought to light
all sorts of queer experiences. One
of the best jokes was told at a recent
wedding. An out-of-town man came
to Omaha to attend the Phi Lambda
Epsilon dance, given at the Black
Ulane last Friday evening. When he
arrived in the city he immediately
bethought himself of a young woman,
a former acquaintance, whom he
wished to accompany hisji to the
party. Accordingly he called the
young woman's home and made his
So far, so good. Soon, however,
the young woman began to reflect.
Who was this young man; did she
know him? She knew a man of his
name; it was not an unusual one. Then
she questioned her young brother,
and from his description of the man
in question she decided that a sad
mistake had been made, but how
could she rectify it? She had no idea
of the young man's whereabouts; she
could not reach him by Jiote or by
telephone; io fact, she couldn't do
anything but wait.
When the hour of the dance came,
the young man appeared and the
whole mystery was unraveled. The
out-of-town man had known her sis
ter, now married; had telephoned to
ask this sister to go with him to the
dance, had talked to the unmarried
maid, thinking that she was her sister,
1 and finally was nonntiissed In find
that she was not. , But as all good i
tones snouia end, tney went to the
dancing party and had a perfectly
grand and glorious time.
That story led a staid married man !
to tell of how once when he was
young, his younger brother got into
a mixup and was scheduled to take
two young women to a party. Elder
brother said, "I'll take one of the
girls," for he thought he knew her.
But when he called for Fair One No.
II, much to his surprise, he had never
seen her before. Fortunately, he
looked enough like his younger
brother to pass himself off as such.
The charm couldn't work very long,
of course, and so before he arrived
at , the party he had to make his ex
planations. He succeeded in convinc
ing his companion that he had tele
phoned for her in the first place, with
the happy result that they were de
voted friends for a long time after-
wards. . ...
