AM OME call this ttie between-sea-
Ssons time, others attribute the
social dullness to Red Cross
war relief work, but some just
to golr. Uur desk calendar bears the
picture of a little blond-haired, bare
footed cherub blowing his pipes while
two fleecy, lambkins frisk down the
green hill. Above in the blue sky
float big white clouds. Such a rest
ful and refreshing scene the Country
club presented Monday when the
Omaha Woman's Golf association met
for their -opening play of the season.
The club house was practically de
serted, but the velvety green links
were dotted with spots of color.
Even golfing has a bearing on the
Red Cross now for all over the coun
try there is talk of appropriating golf
Out Doors Lures
the Society Folks
The call of the outdoors will not
reach its full strength until all the
country clubs have opened their doors
for the summer. At a meeting this
week it was decided that the Field
club opening will be held the even
ing of May 26, the same evening as
the initial dinner-dance at Happy
Hollow club, for which announce
ments were issued last week. Sey
mour Lake Country club has grown
impatient, so that although the cafe
will not be put in shape until later the
members have gathered for one pre
season dance this week and will en
joy another on May 25. Carter Lake
club is waiting for the water to pass
above the freezing point before it
gathers its happy family together
again and will celebrate Decoration
day with its first reunion. Two days
later Seymour Lake club will inau
gurate its season.
June is to be marked by numerous
outdoor fetes and benefits. Unitarian
church members are hoping to bring
Portia Swett back to Omaha to give
the open-air fete in Joslyn gardens.
If they are not able to do if they are
planning with much foresight to cap
ture the nimble dancer as she flits
back to the east after closing her sum
mer camp in the Rockies. Then they
will give a glorious autumn festival
among the reds and browns of au
tumn's falling leaves.
At least one June fete surely will
be htld. This will be the All Saints'
Sunday Seliool June fete at the home
of Mrs. Will Hoagland, which is
dated for June 2. Mrs. Franklin Shot
well and her mother, Mrs. Lois Coch
rane, are taking charge of the work
and have arranged a delightful pro
gram nf dances, drills and songs with
the added novel feature of a mati
nee dance in the house for the young
people at the close of the outdoor
fete.
Everyone who is so fortunate as
to be numbered among the friends of
Mrs. Myron Learned is eagerly an
ticipating the outdoor performance
of her masque of country life the
middle of June. The thought of this
delightful form of drama presented in
the open is sufficiently attractive of
itself to draw interest, but this par
ticular little play is sure to have em
bodied in it some of the charm of the
author's own personality. If Han
sconi park is chosen (nr this Red
Cross benefit it will lie full to over
flowing with all of us
Calendar a plank
funds for Red Cross. At the Chicago
Country clubs they are talking of
turning prize money into Red Cross
funds. In New York the women
golfers are planning to give their
tournament entrance fees to Red
Cross treasurers and to cut down their
prizes. Just what Omaha women will
do along this line has not yet been
decided. Mrs. Walter G. Silver is
considering the matter and has pre
sented several schemes to the mem
brs of the association. '
Next to golfing the favorite pastime
in society is afternoon tea. This is
the only unadulterated form of en
tertainment left to the hostess. Bridge
parties have been coining dollars for
good causes and will continue to do
so for some time to come. " Dancing
parties are excellent money-getters as
Mrs. i nomas Latham Davis . will
prove after her circle of All Saints'
Parish Aid has given its dancing par
ty Tuesday evening at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Dana C. Bradford
Luncheon and dinners are altogether
too expensive for benefit affairs, so
the tea is the reallv satisfactory wav
ot getting together socially. Mrs.
John L. Kennedy s tea last Tuesday
was a delightful affair. The euest of
honor, little Mrs. E. Tohn Brandeis.
"set the informal note by appearing in
a simple dark costume with large hat
and soft turs thrown carelessly around
her shoulders. Many of the guests
came in street attire from their vari
ous centers of activity, so that no one'
was confined to strictly afternoon
dress. The hostess and Mrs. George
Brandeis were two most charming
figures in their light afternoon frocks.
Tuesday seems a good day for tea,
because this week Mrs. Charles D.
Beaton, too, has taken Tuesday for
her tea, in honor of Mrs. Wilson
Austin of Pelham Manor, N. Y., who
is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs.
C. F. McGrew, and for her mother,
Mrs. E. A. Wurster of Milwaukee.
Mrs. E. A. Wurster, jr., of Milwaukee
is also expected to be in Omaha for
the tea.
One of the interesting events of the
week will be the presentation on
Tuesday evening of the prize plays
of the Omaha Woman's Press club
at the Blackstone. About 200 inter
ested people will gather for the eve
ning. Several dinner parties of Press
club members and friends will be
given at the hotel preceding the per
formance. ,
