OMAHA WOMEN OPEN
Society Leaders Attend First
Classes of Kind Ever Organ
ized to Teach Food Conservation.
Omaha's canning and drying
school, the first in the world to be
organized for the purpose of con-
terving food during the war, opened
yesterday at Central High school
under the auspices of the Board of
Public Welfare and the University
of Nebraska extension department.
Fifty students, many of them Oma
ha's wealthiest women and three from
out of town, were on hand with their
arms laden with kitchen aprons, caps
and preserving jars and notebooks.
Several appeared who had failed to
register, thinking there would be
plenty of room and they could slip in.
They were disappointed when told
that classes were filled to overflowing
and that no registrations will be taken
after today until Friday for the new
classes to be held June 22 and 23.
Mrs. Walter rage was seen work
ing side by side with her maid, Miss
Ida Nordstrum, an expert cook.
"We will teach canning in mv own
kitchen during the summer months
and we are willing to instruct in the
poor districts of Omaha among
women who were unable to take ad
vantage of the school," said Mrs.
Donate to Hospitals.
"I will donate all vegetables Miss
Nordstrum and I can at the school to
the hospitals. I won't give it a
chance to spoil," she added.
Mrs. Frank Hamilton found her
self minus a cap when she left for
the canning school, so she impro
vised one out of one of her hus
Mrs. Howard Baldridge is another
canning scholar who found herself in
a dilemma, for she had neither cap nor
apron. Being an arduous Red Cross
worker, she finally thought of her
Red Cross apron, which she pressed
Among those present were Mrs.
A. L. Fernald. president of the Omaha
Woman's club; Mrs. W. G. Ure, retir
ing president of the Fine Arts society;
Mrs. K. M. Svfert. retirinir nresident
of the Woman's club, who is the organ
izer ot the class; Mrs. Harvey New-
branch, retiring president of the As
sociation of Collegiate Alumnae; Mrs.
Harriet MoMurphy, former state food
inspector, and Mrs. L. Kirwin, Mrs.
W. f . Durke ot Walnut Mill, Neb.,
and Mrs. D. W. Lawson of Arlington,
Vegetables Arrive Late.
The only hitch in the plans was
that thirty quarts of beans, fifty
quarts of peas and the four baskets
of tomatoes and rhubarb ordered for
the school failed to arrive until 10
o'clock. Owing to the fact that there
are no beets to be found in Omaha,
they will be eliminated from the
course, although they are among the
best vegetables for canning.
Mrs. Paul Fivett, instructor of the
school, was assisted by the Misses
Margaret Long and Hedvic Provas
nik, both graduates of the home econ
omics department of the University
of Nebraska. - . " '
That these women had riot attended
school for many years could not have
been discovered from the obedient
and efficient manner in which they
"Everyone has come with the real
purpose of the school in mind and are
willing to concentrate while here and
impart their knowledge to others,"
said Mrs. Rose M. Ohaus.
Miss Elizabeth Stearns, of the Wel
fare board, acted as registrar and
cashier of the school.

performance of The Kermessi at the
classic old Den, when Chief Henry
W. Dunn will sing "Clancy" as an
interpolated number in "The Queen
of Hair Island."
"Clancy" is one of the best Irish
songs ever written and has been sung
in Omaha only once before, and that
by the inimitable Frank Lalor, in
"Coming Thro' the Rye' 'at Boyd's
theater, more than ten years ago.
Chief Dunn heard Lalor sing that
ballad and promptly bought a copy,
which he has kept ever since. Now
he intends to spring it on the Ak-Sar-Ben
knights. He tried it out last
Wednesday evening before the under
takers and dentists, and it tickled
them immensely. Anything that will
make an undertaker or a dentist laugh
ought to go mighty good with a bunch
of South Side pigskinners for to
night is South Side night, you know.
This is only one of the many new
stunts to be sprung by Gus Renze
this evening, for the big drive for 1,
000 more members is on.
"We aim to please or kill," grimly
remarked President Buckingham, of
the board of governors, while placing
his O. K. on the Renzian novelties.
ather Gehl Finishes
Mission for Deaf Mutes
Rev. Eugene Gehl, who has been
holding a mission in the sign language
for the deaf-mutes here, closed his
Omaha visit last night with a lecture
on "The Silent World" ae the Creigh
ton University auditorium. The lec
ture was accompanied by a series of
stereopticon slides showing intimate
views of the Catholic institutions for
the deaf all over the country and the
methods used to teach the mutes the
use of signs. The lecturer said the
oral system of teaching mutes was a
failure, and that the only efficient way
was the combination of both the oral
and the exemplary methods. Father
Gehl is the only missionary for the
deaf-mutes in the United States.

DR. GOLICK TELLS OF
American Women in the Kitch
ens Occupy Strategic Po
sitions in This
'We must furnish France and Eng
land 40 per cent of the food they need
for the next year if they are to carry
on the war. We cannot get it from
South America. We must get it here.
There is only one place to get it, and
that is by saving at the tables of
So spoke Dr. Luther Gulick of New
York, founder of the Campfire Girls
of America movement, in his talk to
the girls, women and men at the
Commercial club at noon.
"That is why the women of the
kitchen occupy the strategic position
in this war, he continued. "Theirs
is the difficult place. There is no
limelight and we are all human. You
cant' march down the street in col
umns, twenty-four abreast, saving
food from the tables. You're alone
and in your kitchen. This work must
be done in small amounts day after
day and three times a day. This sav
ing of food from the tables is a great
work, but made up for the most part
of details that are all trivial and many
of them humiliating.
Tells of Campfire Girls.
Dr. Gulick traced the history of the
"Campfire" movement, developed its
purpose to bring to the girls that
larger understanding of their relation
to the home and to the world and
community by the close touch with
home and the surroundings,, and also
went to some extent into the psychoid
ogy of girlhood, particularly the im-
prsssionable age of from 12 to IS years.
At that age, he declared, the con
sciousness is budding and shooting in
hundreds of directions, and in ever
changing and varying ways. He
held that all this is good and should
not be curtailed.
"A little psychic snub to an interest
budding at that time," he said, "may
prevent that interest from ever grow
ing again in that individual. These
years are the budding season."
Police Asked to Identify
Man Found Dead in Iowa
A telegram was received last night
from Dr. Black, cornor at Jefferson,
la., by Captain of Police Heitfeld,
stating that he was holding the body
of a man identified as F. W. Kran
sinco, who was found lying dead
along the railroad track at the out
skirts of the town.
How he came about his death has
not been ascertained.
Upon his person were found $8, a
gold watch, a pair of nose glasses,
purchased from the Columbian Opti
cal company, an a railroad ticket over
the Chicago & Northwestern line, for
passage from Omaha to Chicago, No.

of the Body
(By DR. I. W. SHORT.)
The body is a highly organized ma
chine of complicated arts in which
the liver and the kidneys work for
the common good. Damage to either
one1 of these organs Interferes with
man as a motor mechanism. The auto
mobile expert knows how important it
is that the carburetor does not get too
much fuel, along with sufficient air to
Dura or explode the gas. Too much
fuel in man's machine, such as eat
ing too much meat, or alcohol or tea,
and the liver cannot "turn over." ner
vous everwork and lack of exercise
in outdoor air bring constipation and
bad health. Eat less meat, plenty
of vegetables, and with air and good
exercise you need little else. If the
liver needs rousing and most of us
need this once a week take a safe
vegetable extract of the leaves of
aloe, May-apple, root of jalap made
into a tiny sugar-coated pill, and sold
by almost every druggist as Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets first put
up nearly fifty years ago.
Most people die eventually of an
over-acid condition. If the blood can
be rendered more alkaline the longer
we live. With regular hours, plenty
of water between meals, sensible
coarse food and a chance to get the
poisons out of the system, a man will
live to be a hundred. But, unfor
tunately, our highly nervous wav of
living brings increased storage of
uric acid in the body. This acts as
a poison, and we suffer from lum
bago, aches or pains, rheumatism,
bet rid of this uric acid poison by
taking a harmless medicine called An
uric, which throws out the uric acid
by stimulating the kidneys. Drink a
pint of hot water before meals and
take Anuric (double strength), three
or four times a day. Anuric can be
obtained at almost any drug store.
Sixteen Young Women of the
Brownell Hall Senior Class
Hear Sermon at St.
Sixteen young women, graduates of
Brownell Hall, marched in cap and
gown from that institution Sunday
to St. Matthias' church at Tenth and
Worthington streets and attended the
Sunday services, where Bishop Will
iams delivered the baccalaureate ser
mon. Bishop Williams chose for his text,
"Let all the earth keep silent before
Him." In part he said, "During the
period of this great war, when cool
deliberation is our greatest necessity
can we not see the fruits of silence?"
In speaking of our part in the war, he
also said, "Do you not suppose that
Almighty God has stamped our
entrance into this war, as a champion
of liberty, with His seal of divine ap
proval?" The service consisted of the Missa
Marialis, by C. W. Douglas, who
trained the choir last fall in this com
position. The graduation exercises
will be held on Tuesday at St. Mat
thias' church, when the Rev. Dr.
Foster of Denver will address the
Library Closes Earlier Starting
Monday all departments of the public
library will close at 8:30 for the bal
ance of the summer. - The South Side

Cable Thieves Desert
Car When Chased by Police
A suspicious looking burden in a
Ford car attracted the attention of
R. D. Mangold and a party of friends
in a Scripps-Booth machine out on
Fontenelle boulevard last night. Man
gold drove his car alongside, where

men in the car, handicapped by the

The chase began at Forty-second
and Pacific streets and continued un

jumped out and deserted the machine.
Mangold gave up the cnase ana in
specting the deserted Ford, found
within it several elbows of telephone
cable, which the men had cut down
on Fontenelle boulevard.
He immediately notified the police
and Detectives Lahey and Dolan went
over the route where the men had
dropped the cable and piced it up over
a stretch of three miles. Altogether
there was ilu feet of cable that had

TELLS GRADS HIGH
Dr. Jenks Preaches Baccalau
reate Sermon to Graduating
Class of the High School
Rev. E. H. Jenks in his baccalau
reate sermon to the graduating class
of the High School of Commerce
Sunday morning at First Presbyterian
church urged the gradua' .s to follow
high ideals and build personal char
acter. "God gave man the power to build
character and man can make himself
good or bad," he told the students.
"It requires ambition to acquire char
acter. Nothing can be accomplished
without an etlort.
"To be successful one must have
high ideals, usually secret ideals. It
wouldn't do for one to go about tell
ing his friends that he was going to
be a great politician or high in the
commercial field. Yet it is necessary
before that man can succeed to have
that ambition and ideals to carry him
to his desired goal.
"If you have high ideals and fol
low them you cannot help but build
Dr. Jenks chose his text from Phil
ippians ii, 12-1 J, "Work out your own
salvation with fear and trembling for
it is God which worketh .11 you both
to will and to do of his good pleas
ure." "The idea of getting into heaven,
which many persons believe is salva
tion, is but a small part of salvation,"
he said. "You must work out your
own salvation as you go out in this
world and think about it as much now
as if drawing your last death breath."
Dr. Jenks remarked that it gave
him great pleasure to preach thetac
calaureate sermon because he was a
graduate from Hamilton college with
Principal Adams of the High School
Eighty-two students attended the
services as well as the faculty.
Dr. Jenks left immediately for Ne
braska City, where he delivered the
commencement address at th-' gradua
tion exercises, at the School for the
Blind Sunday night.
Invests in Liberty Bonds
Local officers of the Typographical
union have received word from the in

olis that in a referendum recently
taken the proposed arbitration agree
ment with the employing job printers'
organizations was endorsed by a two-to-one
vote. The agreement is similar
to the one in operation on newspa
pers. The international organization also
informed the local members that the
officers have invested $50,000 of the
organization's fund in Liberty bonds.
This is in addition to the sums sub
scribed by local unions, which very
generally have followed the example
of the Omaha union, which recently
