Red Crosi Nurses at Horse Rices.
Miss Edna Peterson, daughter of
President Edward Peterson of the
Qmaha Driving club, is a real "horse
racing fan." She never misses a
alliance to see a turf meet and each
fall goes south to the home of gen
uine horse-racing to see her father's
prize-winning animals' comDete with
other famous horses on the Kentucky
green. "I can't imagine anything more
wonderful than a good horse race,"
Miss Peterson's patriotism, though,
is of such a brand that she carries
it with her even when she intends
to enjoy her favorite sport. When
the driving club decided to donate a
money above actual expense to the
Red Cross she decided to help in
every way possible to make the Red
Cross sum a large one. Instead of
allowing men to be hired for ticket
takers and ushers, as was done last
year", she offered her services for the
wor!. and enlisted from fifteen to
-twenty of her friends to do likewise.
All day yesterday they sold tickets
with great success among the bust
nest men downtown. Today they
made their appearance in Red Cross
costumes at the race track, wliere
they served as ushers, ticket takers
and everything else that would help
to cut down the cost of operating the
The twenty who served today wil
be replaced tomorrow by' some oth
ers, who will in turn ask other friends
' to help on Thursday. Miss Peter
son will be on hand each day, working
like, the good sportswoman that she
is to make the races a success and
-thereby to pile up the dollars for the
Red Cross donation. ,

Chabot, Esther Peterson, Agnes Sin

No matter how enthusiastically and
conscientiously we may be conserving
our food supply at the present time,
still we must sVt our tables and serve
our meals. Whether we have a two'
course or a five-course dinner, it may
be served beautifully and carefully,
thus adding to the graciousness of
every day living.
In setting a table the first point is
the choice of the table "linen. No
matter what the quality, the cloth
should be beautifully laundered and
spotlessly clean. Because of the labor
involved in laundering table linen, the
modern breakfast cloth is just the
size of the table, and for breakfast or
luncheon a set of doilies is often used.
The breakfast or luncheon set need
no be white, for natural colored linen
is equally attractive and much less
labor to care for. Some progressive
housewives who have to consider the
abor of the household find the linen
doily sets as satisfactory for dinner
as for the less formal meals of the
day. And surely anything is prefer
able toa soiled white table cloth. H
a cloth is used, it should be placed
on the table with the creases straight.
bach place at table is called a
cover, and twenty-four inches of space
is. recommended tor each cover it pos-
ible. J oo small a space makes for
awkwardness both for the people at
table and the maid. In setting a
covet the plate and silver should be
set parallel with the edge of the table
if the table is square, or with the same
curve as the table edge if the table is
round. All silver should be placed
about one inch from the edge of the
table. The plate is first set, then the
fork at the left and the knife at the
ght with the blade turned toward
the plate. The basis of all rules of
table setting and courtesy is really
common sense, and tt is sensible to
ave the knife and fork nearest the
hand that is to pick up each. On the
ue with the knite, the spoons are
placed in the order in which they will
be used, the outside to be used first.
Garfield Circle club will meet with
Mrs. Gertrude lohnson Werin,lav
at 2 o'clock to do Red Cross work.
The Round Table thapter of the
Chautauque circle, organized three
years ago under the leadership of
Mrs. "AV. B. Howard! gave a dinner
Saturday evening at the home of Mrs.
Howard. The class, which now num
bers eighteen, has been meeting every
Thursday evening and will be grad
uated next year. The five original
members, Miss Grace Grant. Miss
Elizabeth Ryan, Miss Gertrude Bailey,
Miss, Mktie Ward, now Mrs. W. T.
Loomis, and Miss Rose Zurcher, now
Mrs. G. E. Davis, are still in the class
and have only missed attendance less
than four times in the three years.

HOW TO ARRANGE A "COVER."
Thus if bouillon, ice cream and cof
fee are all to be served, the coffee
spoon, is next to the knife, the tea
spoon! next, and at the outside the
bouillon spoon. The same rule ap
plies to knives. The fish knife is far
ther Ironi the plate than tnc dinner
knife. On the left side the forks are
ranged in the order ot use according
to the same rule. At a very formal
meal, where much silver is needed! ii
it now customary to have only a mod
erate amount displayed on the tabrc
and bring in the rest with each course
at needed. If a butter spread is pro
vided, it is laid across the upper right
hand part of the" bread and butter
plate, or on the table cloth just above
and to the sight oPthe bread and but
ter plate. The water goblet or tum
bler i placed directly above the knife,
and the bread and butter plate above
the fork. The napkin is placed to the
left of the fork with the open corner
toward the person that is, toward
the plate and the edge of the table.
There again the role of common sense
is the basis for this idea ot placing tne

or a pair of salt and pepper shakers
for each J wo people, the Rwerpeo
ole the salt cellar is to serve the
closer to the individual plate it ii
olaced. When the set must serve sty-
eral people, it is placed further to the
center of he table. The question of
table decoration has already been dis
cussed in this column, but the choice
of a center piece may be mentioned
again. For a small table theicenter
piece may be tall, provided it is very
slerfder, as a single flower vase. For
a large table, however, a single flower
vase looks lost, unless used with can
dies. A tall, 'large bouquet should ,h.ere ,wi" l,ave to bfe cordial co-oper-
never be used because iKobstructs the
view across the table and interferes
with table conversation. A low bowl
of flowers is always pleasing. The
new very flat pottery bowls with
flower standards in the center do not
obstruct the view because the flowers
can never be solidly massed in the

The canning school is held in Room

and Dodge streets, all of the week of
June ll(and the week of June 18. The
classes begin Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays and it is not necessary
for an out-of-town woman to register
ahead of timeS The classes begin at
9 a. m. The fee is $1. Each woman
brings four pint jars, which she fills
at the school. She also brings a large
apron, a hand towel and a tea towel.
If you prefer, you may buy the jars,
at the school.
V. A. D., Glenwood, la.: To pre
vent a one-crust pie from -slipping
down in places, you may bake it on
the back of the pan, then slip it into
the pan after it is bakei to fill it. An
other method of preventing slipping
is to fit the -erust very carefully into
the pan and build up - rim. To make
a rim allow about a half-inch of crust
all around the edge, then pinch this
extra half-inch back and perpendicu
lar to form a rim. If there are any
other points with which I can help
you, I shall be very glad to be of assistance.
Substitutes for TinCans
A large part of. the high cost of
living is accounted1 for by the cost
of the containers in which many com
modities are marketed; and one of the
anxieties which surround the prepara
tions for fffe conservation of food
supplies and the prevention of waste
in the immediate future arises from
the certainty that there will be a seri
ous shortagc'in the materials for cans.
In anticipation of this difficulty the
Department of Commerce, in 'colla
boration with) the Bureau of Stand
ards, has done a public service by the
issue of a pamphlet giving wise coun
sel to the canners and the public rela
tive to possible substitutes for tin
cans and to ways and means of off
setting any possible shortage.
There are certain things, of c&urse, I
for the preservation of which tin is !
a necessity. In other cases tin con-
tainersj. have assumed an advertising j
value which makes their abandon- I
ment a matter of serious sacrifice. But J
there are a host of present uses for j
which n o such plea can be made J
and the government pamphlet re- 1
ferred to points out the large class f
of food commodities capable of being I
distributed in paper or fiber contain- J
ers. It is suggested, moreover, that ,
large consumers can contribute to the
national economy by purchasing in
quantity, thus lessening the demand
for smaller tin cans and boxes. To
make a plan of this sort effective,

be the part of patriotism for all con

lic will want to know how far the

for glass and tin are due to a real

is asking for increased powers of in
