Local Women Ready to Serve '
: Country in Either War kor Peace
EMBERS of the National
League For Woman s Service
are marking time until after
the meeting of the executive
committee, Monday morning at 10
o'clock in the new headquarters,
which, have been fitted up in the First
National bank building, next' to the
army recruiting station. When the
executive committee has made its
plans and Systematized its work more
thoroughly, the doors of the Service
League room will be thrown open
to any woman in the city of Omaha
or thereabouts, who wishes to offer
hr services in any way to her coun
try. At that time arrangements will
be made for the public mass meet,
ing, which wi)l place before all the
women of this community the propa
ganda of the National League for
Woman's Service v .'
Some do not understand that this
league is intended to be a permanent
organization. Any woman who can
do anything useful, from the ro.iing
of bandagei to the driving of an army
motor, will be asked to give her serv
ice to the Kovernmenfin this crisis.
If, however, this war should be of
short duration, as many believe, the
work of -tlTE" organization will not
cease. It will exist as a trained body
of women all over .the nation, so that
in case of any recurrence of war or
in the event of great disaster such
as floods, cyclone orfire, it will be
able- to offer succor to those in need.
There are eleven divisions of work
from which the women can choose,
but under the emergency program en
tailed by the present war they have
chosen four divisions in which to spe
cialize. , '
Since it is said that Fort Crook
is to be one of the twelve great cen
tral mobilizing stations of the country

Omaha women to do. Members of the
executive committee will be on hand
all day long to assign volunteers, to
their proper spheres. The Red Cross
branch, which is being organized here
will have its headquarters in the
Service League room. The Red Cross
is one of the departments of the vast
field covered by the National League
for Woman's Service.,, ,-,', ; . ,
To Mrs. Lowrie Childs belongs the
honor of sending the first registration
to the league.- She was - followed
closely-by MVs. William Archibald
Smith, who is the chairman of the
Omaha branch. Mrs. Childs, as head
of the committee' on social service
and welfare work, has already re
cruited three almost four detach
ments,' composed of not more than
thirty women each, appointed thrde
commandants, and - altogether has
about 100 women in view as recruits.
Mrs. Childs reports that everyone
seems anxious to Volunteer for work
and expects that when the headquar-.
ters are opened Monday the response
will be immediate.
Mrs. Myron Learned has consented
to be commandant of one of the de
tachments and will enlist the mem
bers of the Omaha Woman's Press

Omaha Society Emerges from the
. ; ; .Lenten Dusk Into Easter Gaiety
AR!S horrors have, not yet
.dampened the ardor 'with
' which feminine ' society , ap-,
proaches the glad 'day on
which it decks itself in' garments gty
a: d blossoms, forth with new Jife and
beauty. Just as the growing things
about us ..have hid themselves away
from the gaze of all beholders to re
appear' anon- changed - and refresh
ed, so society has withdrawn from
itelf more and more during Lent un
til this last week of religious observ
ance has been a social blank.
Touay. all the repression, penance
and abstinence vanishes to be . re
placed by glad rejoicing. This week
will be a reve! of joy, the season will
be in. its prime again, and all society
win gird up itselt tor tne grand race
to the goal o. summer vacations. A
few of the school sets are still en
joying vacations, but soon they, too
will resume the quest ot knowledge.
From now until the time for summer
trips to begin there is so much to be
done. Serious things are . engaging
society to. an unusual extent. Fre
quent inform?!" gatherings are brought
about by these matters ot business,
which, really partake of the nature of
functions. Social clubs, which have
not met for several weeks, will re
turn to their .former schedule this
week. In general life will resume its
natural appearance, but with added
activity. y1 ' ( . k ;
