Canning School "Eat." Pass Family
Hoot woman, canna ye can? To
be able to can is a great accomplish
ment among Omaha society women
these days. The members of the
class which enlisted through the ef
forts of Mrs. E. M. Sytert for the
opening days of the school, Monday
and Tuesday of this week, every sin
gle one was attentive and obeyed or
ders explicitly. They missed the in
struction in drying fruit and vegeta
bles, however, so that they are all
planning to go back to complete the
course. All the careful scholars who
canned fruit at the opening canning
school carefully carried their cans of
vegetables home for exhibition in the
bosom of their families. Mrs. L. J.
Healey and Mrs. L. M. Lord pro
nounce their asparagus in perfect con
dition. It has lost, not a particle
of its pristine freshness. They have
ordered more asparagus and are about
to repeat the process at home. To
(ie able to can vegetables in such
tempting fashion is an accomplish
ment far higher thin to.win dozens
of bridge prizes in war time.
Mrs. Frank T. Hamilton was one
of the most interested workers at
the canning school. She carried her
jar of vegetables home with an air as
proud as any. Mrs. Byron Clarke
and some of the other experienced
cooks had nothing but words of com
mendation for the work of the school,
for the process taught was new and
well worth learning
Mrs. Syfert has a few places left
in the group which she is enlisting
for next Monday and Tuesday. She
is making a special appeal to the
young married women to take inter
est in the work this time and expects
them to vie with their aunts and
mothers in canning and drying vege
tables. Lowenthal-Kopald Wedding.

OMAHANS CARE FOR
Blanche Oroh Last to Be Taken
Oare Of by the Patriotic
Folks of This
By A. R. CROH.
The one hundredth French war
orphan to he supported by Oinahaiis
was adopted the other day.
Her name happens to be Blanche
Groh. So you can see one reason
why I am giving a write-up to the
French war orphans, bless thenil
You probably know of the nation
wide plan for supporting young
French children whose fathers have
been killed in the war. Ten cents a
day supports a child, for these chil
dren don't need ice cream sodas and
nickels for the movies and the lux
uries that American children have
The If) cents supplies enough food to
keep life in their bodies.
Madame A. M. Borglum tells me
that Blanche Groh lives in a little
town near Rouen in beautiful Nor
mandy, France. She has four little
brothers and sisters and they have
all been adopted now by Americans
Of course, the "adoption" is rather
figurative than real. Payment of the
10 cents a day enables the child to re
main with its mother.
It is a splendid plan, for it brings
the child and the person who is pay
ing the 10 cents a day into contact
through letters. No danger of the
payments stopping or the interest
lagging under such circumstances.
Oirli Support Orphans.
"Some people who 'adopt' a war
orphan pay $3 a month and others
pay the whole annual amount, $3650
at once," said Madame Borglum, who
has charge of the work in' Omaha.
"Many are being supported by girls
earning their own living. Some people
give the money to one of their own
children and let that child adopt the
French child, and the correspondence
between them is most interesting and
touching. I have just received word
that Americans are now paying about
$1,000,000 a year for supporting the
French war orphans."
Oh, those charming French chil
dren! Have you ever watched them
playing in the gardens of the Tuiller
les or at the Punch and Judy show on
the Champs Elysees, or have you
seen the poorer Parisian children
playing, say. in the Place de la Re
publique. What is the indescribable
something about them that makes
you admire and love them?
French Children Polite.
I remember once, when another
chap and I were on a walking tour
through France, we often remarked
upon the politeness and respect
shown us by the French children in
We carried packs upon our backs;
we had a stranpe appearance: we
might have been tramps for all the
children knew. Most children would
at least have stared at us. Not so
the French childien. Whenever we
met any they would invariably greet
us with a touch of their hats and a
respectful "Bon jour, messieurs."
This may seem a small thing but
it is the straw that shows which way
the wind flows. Likable children
grow into likable men and women
and that kind of men and women
make a likable nation. And France
today has the love and admiration
of the world.
And so a hundred charming French
boys and girls are corresponding with
a hundred good Omahaus whom they
call their "good benefactors." Re
ceiving these letters from ittle Ze
zette, Madeline, Marthe, Antoine, Jac
ques and Angcle must be in them
selves ample return for the ten cents
a day paid.
You can adopt one. Call up or
write to Madame A. M. Borglum.
