Perhaps you will be able to serve your
country now as well aa yourself. You might
apply to the National Service school, where
the women's section of the Navy league Is
doing work along new and Interentlng lines.
There are a number of reputable farm jour

suggestion of a position such aa you de
sire. Possibly also the State School of Ag
riculture can give you Information. Of
course, your letter tsks a question which

have had so many of the same type re

this general reply, which Is meant for all.

Dear Miss Fairfax: I am a business girl
and have been going about with a young
chap for the last year or so. He has asked

to have your advice. as to whether this Is
entirely proper. MARY F.
How many times will X have to tell my
girls that a trip such as you suggest will
not dor It Is entirely contrary to the laws
and conventions of good society and, bow
ever decent the motives of the people
who do such things, they are sure to be
questioned and criticised. The suggestion of
evil harms a girl's reputation sadly and no
girl who wants to be held In good standing
In good society can afford to go away with
a man on a trip such as you suggest. Men
are more wordly than women and they gen
erally realise that a girl who goes away
with them unohaperoned will be orltlclaed.
So when a man suggests such a trip he Is
either selfishly careless of the girl's repu
tation, very thoughtless or Inclined to amuse
himself at her expense.

So Declares Mrs. Smith in Re
gard to Registering the
Women in League
Whether or not to register a corps
of Omaha women who are crack pis

Woman Service is a auestion Mrs.
William Archibald Smith, local chair
man, is debating. Mrs. Smith has
written Mrs. Grace Parker of New

she was authorized to enroll such a

sell and Mrs. Ralph Hayward are
temporary officers for a new Run club,
members of which have expressed
their intention to affiliate.
"The women haven't applied to join
the league yet. but I want to know
what to do when they do apply. 1
read in the newspapers they planned
to join." said Mrs. Smith.
"Women should reflect soberly
about the war service they wish to do
instead of rushing into a thing, serv
ice for which may never materialize.
There is so much work woman's work
that should be done.
"I believe as Miss Maude Wetmnre,
our national chairman does, that
planting gardens and preventing waste
in buying, though not spectacular or
obviously heroic, are more valuable to
the nation than learning to become
crack pistol shots. For large num
bers of women to engage in this
would be ridiculous. We have plenty
of able-bodied men to take posts of
that kind."
Mrs. Charles Reese, temporary pres
ident of the Roman's Gun club, said
the matter of joining the corps would
be discussed at the Gun club's meet
ing Tuesday at the home of Mrs. Hay
ward. "Most of -us have already
joined the league as individual mem
bers," she said.

that they bring out all the natural

putting a teaspoonful of canthrox
(which they get from the druggist)
in a cup of hot water and applying
this instead of soap. j?his full cup of

to apply it to all the hair instead of

use the hair dries rapidly with uni
