News of the Week, in Social Circles : Activities in Women's Realm
Conservation of Food and Clothing Problems and
Sale of Liberty Bonds Are of Interest to Society
CONSERVATION his been the
I 1 great theme of the week. Omaha
home keepers attended the
meetings at the Auditorium
Faithfully and earnestly ever since
Tuesday evening. They were visibly
impressed and went away resolved to
economize more than ever before.
The feature of. the congress which
was most interesting to society peo
ple was-the address given on Thurs
day afternoon by Secretary W. G.
McAdoo concerning the Liberty
bonds. There many prominent maids
and matrons were -to be seen listen
ingintently and when the call came
for volunteers to buy bonds Omaha's
society girls were the first to raise
their hands high in air, saying, "I
will buy a bond." '
Brides in seasons past have re
ceived all kinds of interesting and
valuable gifts. Stocks and bonds have
figured with huge checks and real es
tate as acceptable bridal gifts. Now
comes the time to see who will be the
first June bride to receive the pa
triotic and valuable gift of a Liberty
loan bond. The Omaha woman who
first invests in one of these bonds, be
she bride or no, will be a person of
great importance m our midst.
Another meeting which drew many
society women was the talk on cloth
ing problems Friday morning. One
womau suggests a "clothes exchange"
where, people of less means may come
to buy at reduced rates the clothes
which well-to-do people have taken
from their store rooms for the pur
pose. A field of possibilities lies in
the suggestion. It might prove high
ly interesting to establish such an ex
change. Fashion magazines usually
carry advertisements of firms who
buy partially used party gowns or sell
renovated clothing. Here wc might
have a glorified rummage sale. Since
"the gift without the giver is bare,"
each donor would be expected to put
the clothing which she gave in rea
sonable order. It would then be con
veyed to a store room fitted for the
purpose and arranged as nearly as
possible like new clothes. Here shifts
of society girls might sell their sec
ond hand pumps, party dresses, old
furs, suits and so on with economic
gam to llie buyers.
ROM a strategic point of vantage on the his
toric old cannon wlncn guards tne main en
trance of the fine school on the lull, the
nrtttv hiizh school lassies watch their sol
dier bovs in blue training to serve Uncle
Sam. The lire photographer snapped this lovely group
as they perched about the cannon captured at Morro
Castle' in Cuba during the Spanish-American war.
There's a wee bit of wistfulness in the smiles the
lassies lavish on the youthful soldier boys. They are
patriotic and are thrilled at the sight of their uni
formed school hoy friends coached in the necessary
drill regulations, but thy don't like to think of the
possibility of their being called out in a few years,
just the same.
For youth is youth and school might proe a
boresome place, you know, without the boy across
tit aisle, and someone to carry your books and some
one with whom to dance at cadet officers' hops and
and you know the rest I

Bluffs Rowing Clubs Open Season
OUNTRY club openings last even-
Umg temporarily broke the spell
which has been hovering over
our fair city. A country club
patroness said the other day: "Oh,
really, you ought not to say so much
about the absence of people from the
clubs. If they are to be kept up at
all people will have to go, and if you
say that people don't go then others
will stay away." Truth to tell, this
cool "spell" of weather cast a chill
over outdoor festivity which not all
the attractiveness of these pleasant
places of amusement has been able to
Last night, though to begin again
really was a marked change, just as
at the opening of the Country club a
month ago, all the members gathered
fgr a really delightful reunion. The
similarity to the Country club opening
was carried out in the weather of the
day before, for rain threatened to spoil
all the handsome new frocks which
were worn for the first time on these
occasions. Despite war talk, these
really are new dresses, for all the
popular modistes have been entirely
too busy making them in the last few
weeks to accept any more humble
American flags furnished the chief
decoration for the clubs. Their pres
enceyn all nooks and corners and on
every wall space lent a patriotic as
pect to the parties. Many hostesses
