War Time Economies Urged.
No one need tccuse the fashionable
women of Omaha of failure to con
serve food. Hear these practical sug
gestions that come from our most
exclusive homes. The chairman of
the National League for Woman
Service vouches for these instances
One of" the very wealthiest women
i t Omaha gave orders in her house
hold that no one should be found
; peeling potatoes while the war lasts.
Tiie same woman suggested that in
writing letters on folded note paper,
unless the second sheet is actually
used, it be torn off and saved for
Another sueeestion offered bv a
prominent woman is that a roast of
meat be reworked in such a way as
to serve .for three or four meals in
stead of only one: Another says:
"Save the water from your boiled
rice, it makes good starch." Aspara
gus, tender and rich in flavor, is be
coming highly seasonable. This has
led another woman to tell her neigh
bors and friends to save for soup
water usually drained off of aspar
agus. One of the league leaders says that
she has found upon personal inquiry
into prices and by her own tests that
the housewife who bakes her own
bread makes a profit of one-third the
amount spent for bread. For instance,
for every three 15-cent loaves of
bread that you buy, you can make
four loaves of the same size.
Another practical person suggests
that since the price of shampoos has
gone up in some places, it would be
a matter of economy to have the hair
washed at home. Water from ypur
cistern or rain barrel would be muck
better for their hair than the prepara
tions used at the hairdresser's.
"Inducing men folks to eat some of
the new-fangled dishes advocated by
food conservation experts is one of
the most important problems with
which we have to deal." This is an
interesting point women are discuss
ing, preliminary to the big meeting at
the Auditorium toext week.
"We women will substitute the corn
products instead of wheat and will
try out all the new dishes advocated,
but the men in our families won't eat
them. There is some educational work
to be done there, too," remarked one
woman of experience.
The Misses Fern and Etta Wallace
gave an apron shower Wednesday
evening in honor of Miss AliCe Ben
nett, whose marriage to Mr. Emmet
Donovan takes place next Thursday
morning at 9 oclock at St John's
church. Last week on Wednesday
Mrs, J. P. Murphy entertained for
.Miss Bennett and Saturday evening
Miss Catherine GoOdall gave a party
in her honor. Today Mrs. Philip
Bigger entertained for her.
Works of Art Purchased.
Ten of the Albert Bierstadt paint
ings on exhibit at the Darling gal
leries have been purchased by Omaha
art lovers. The collection will re
main here until May 26. Most of
them are western paintings, two' of
them picture the Nebraska plains.

nouncement is made today by Mrs.
F. W. Stubbendorf of the mar
riage of her daughter, Miss Ivy
Wiles, to Mr. C. W. Francis of
this city. That the young people
were married in Denver nearly a year

and came to the United States when
she was only 3 years, old. She is a

Mrs. Joseph Barker and Mrs. Harry
Jordan will have charge of the game
at the annual Creche benefit card
party to be given in the ball room of
the Fontenelle next Tuesday after
noon. Mrs. Barker has been one of
the most earnest workers in the Red
Cross membership campaign and be
fore that served on the Red Cross
ball committee which netted more
than $4,000 to the fund.
Miss Arabell Kimball, who has been
gathering the Creche party prizes,
says they are well worth playing for.
"Yon really ought to see the hand
some glass bowl, the silk umbrella
and some of the other prizes that we
have. They are every bit as pretty as
in former years, so that you will al
most forget it is war time."
THE Chinese influence grows daily stronger
in the garb of our western woijd. Com
pletely Chinese is the background on
this evening gown, whose strange copper red
has all the charm of the Orient. Over it is
draped smoke-gray chiffon, embroidered in
tricately in gold and dull-blue and red. These
colors repeat themselves in the girdle and the
band which holds the top of the bodice. A
cape of almost impalpable chiffon veils the
arms and the bat'k o( the gown.

JOY HIGGIHS TELLS
OF IRELAND'S HOPES
Proposal of Lloyd George
Meets With Approval of
Some of the Patriots
"The proposal of Lloyd George for
a conference in the settlement of Ire
land's troubles is. the bist thing on
top of the earth," declared Miss Joy
Higgins, granddaughter of a fighting
Irish patriot and one of Omaha's best
informed on the Irish question.
"The spirit of freedom has been
alive so long in Ireland," she said,
"that it is to be hoped the ideal of
Lloyd George will be realized.
"If the great war accomplishes
nothing more than that, it will not
have been fought in vain. This is a
war for democracy, so Ireland surely
ought to gain its rights.
"Many persons have a wrong idea
about the Irish and their loyalty.
They are loyal to the allies, and thou
sands of them are fighting on that
side in all the theaters of the war.
"England's diplomacy in Ireland for
generations has been to array the two
factions against each other, granting
privileges sometimes to one and not
to the other and thus keeping the
Irish people fighting among them
selves. "I believe the factions can get to
gether and come to an understanding
by means of a conference. Some of
the questions could be left for settle
ment after the war. But a start can be

of great value in the development of
Omaha, which will include Benson
and Florence next month," said Secre
tary Kvenild of the commission.
It is also proposed to establish a
driveway from Twenty-fourth and
Reed streets to Thirtieth and Briggs
