Lovers of the French language, lit
erature and art, to the number of
forty, gave a proposed Omaha branch
of I'Allianre Francaise an enthusias
tic start Saturday, afternoon when
they met at the public library. Charles
W. Martin, who has traveled exten
sively in Kurope and speaks French
fluently; Mrs. Charles A. Hull and
Miss Eva Mahoney, who received her
French training abroad, were named
as a committee to outline further
plans of organization and to arrange
for the coming of Monsieur Louis de
la Marre for a lecture on January 24.
Another meeting will be held Thurs
day evening at the Blackstone.
Madame August Mothe Borglum,
herself a French woman, whose sym
pathies are always the first enlisted
in matters of French interest, is de
lighted with the enthusiasm with
which the news organization hai been
received. Madame Bornlum has given
tip a French class which she has led
on Thursday evenings for fifteen
years, in order to devote the time to
Franco-Belgian relief work.
'French study must give way to
relief work in war times.' said she.
Already future programs for I'AI
liance Francais have been projected.
Dr. Felix Despecher has some inter
esting slides of the district of the
Marne, where so much fighting has
been going on, and Mr. Martin's pic
tures, taken during his travels, will

Once upon a time a Handsome

At last, however, they were Mar

"Alas," sobbed the Wife, "I weep

He bi defied you, has he?
He has wrinkled up his little snub
and freckled nose, perhaps clenched
his tiny hands and declared household
war in the family. You have a Hun in
the household! On the face of it it is
discouraging. But beneath the surface
show of things there is hope.
How can I say that? 1 would not
say it if I saw the red and angry little
face, heard the impertinent words
hurled forth by a rebellious mouth.
Yes. I could, for I have seen what
manner of men these boys become.
I I know a man. a big one. big of soul,
1 big in body and in attainment, who,

punishment always answered": "A bad
boy you were, that deserved more
lickings than you got, if I'd. only had
the time to give them to you "
Rebellion in the family. A Hun in
the household? Yea. verily. But the

He patted her narrow shoulder with
his broad hand. He stroked her
white hair with his clumsy brown
fingers. They said not a word, those
two, but the silence that fell between
them was an eloquent oration on am

of his election the little mother died.
She died without knowing that the

Court Order Will
Keep Husband from
Mary E. Kinney, a bookkeeper in
an Omaha grocery store, scored a
point in her fight for her three minor
children when Judge Sears of the dis

ing the husband, John F. Kinney of
Minneapolis, from interfering with the
children or taking any steps to obtain
possession of them. The hearing was
set for January 12.
The wife and mother filed suit for
divorce last week, following the ac
tion of the husband in obtaining a
writ of habeas corpus in county court
ordering Mrs. Kinney to appear be
fore Judge Crawford with the three
children. The husband alleges he was
granted custody in a divorce decree
obtained in Minneapolis last year.
The wife in her petition for divorce
here charged that the divorce was
obtained by fraud.

When Trouble Brews in Omaha
Homes Mrs. Ohaus is Offi
cial "Miss Fix-It."
PUNY QUARRELS MOSTLY
Domestic jars repaired while you
wait Apply at the Welfare board,
city hall. Last week the family re
habilitation department was set in
motion, with Mrs. R. M. Ohaus m
charge. This woman's work is to
diagnose domestic maladies and then
apply a remedy. It has been sug
gested that her title should be, "Doc
tor of domestic disabilities."
Mrs. Ohaus reported two sucess
ful treatments last week. The first
case was of a husband and wife who
were well on the way to conjugal
chaos. The Welfare board specialist
walked into the home and examined
the patients. She probed around
and located the impediment, which
was an aunt of the husband. This
aunt had been very near and dear to
the man before his marriage and after
he had taken unto himself a wife the
aunt insisted that the wife should,
give heed to certain tried and true
principles of housekeeping. The
wife resented the attentions of the
aunt and even threatened to dissolve
marital partnership unless the aunt
"kept her place." The husband did
nut have the heart to curb the en
thusiasm of the aunt.
Mrs. Ohaus talked to the aunt and
the outcome was that a readjustment
was effected and the dove of peace
now hovers over this home.
The Peace Party.
"It only needs a third parry in most
cases to straighten out these domes
tic affairs," explained Mrs. Ohaus.
Another case involved a husband
and wife with grown children. The
husband insisted that the Sunday
dinner should be served to suit his
time and inclination, rather than ac
cording to the wishes of the children.
The wife had been inclined to yield
to the children in this matter.
Inasmuch as the husband and
father in this instance was a worthy
head of his home and family, and the
Sunday dinner demands of the chil
dren being more whimsical than prac
tical, Mrs. Ohaus succeeded in con
vincing the wife and children that
the bread-winner of the home had
prior rights in the matter at issue.
All is happiness in this home, the
Welfare board reports.
"Most domestic disagreements
arise out of trivial affairs, anyway,"
stated Mrs. Ohaus.
