I V1 June 21 iyenUlUficUu Four June Weddings. Fpur youthful and charming brides were married Wednesday night before the showers of rain could fall to cast about them the damp of an ancient superstition, "Sad is the bride that the rain falls on." Two were quiet home weddings, at which only the inv mediate families and a few close friends were present. The other two were church weddings, followed by more private wedding gatherings, one a dinner, the other a reception, , Seacrest-Rushton. One of the prettiest of these wed dings and the one which was a com plete surprise was that ot Miss Alice Louise Rushton. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Rushton, and Mr. Joseph Winger Seacrest of Lincoln. Friends were not expecting the marriage until September. Rev. Edwin Hart Jenks performed the ceremony at the home of the bride's parents. There were no bridal attendants. Just before the ceremony Mr. Leslie Putt, cousin of the bride, sang "I Love You Truly,;' and Mrs. Howard Rushton played the Lohengrin wedding march. The bride's gown was of white satin, made with court train, em broidered in pearls. 1 Her long tulle veil was held in place by a bandeau of pearls. She carried a shower bou quet of bride's roses and tiny pink rosebuds. The decorations throughout the rooms were in shades of rose. Bas kets of pink peonies adorned the hall and library, while in the dining room were red Richmond roses. The mantel in the living room was gar landed with smilax and pink roses and banked with palms and pedestal vases of Russell roses. The bride is a graduate of the Omaha High school. She spent a year at Miss Mason's school in Tarrytown, N. Y., and later took work at Smith. The bridegroom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C.

By BEATRICE FAIRFAX. "How shall I do my , bit?" write Anna and Mabel and Zaidee (not to mention all the other means and ex tremes of alphabet and statjon). "I am twenty-two and have a good home and enough money, so that I am nicely taken care of and have never needed to do any work. But now that our country is at war I am ready to do my share. Shall 1 take up nursing? "Do you think it would be a good plan for me to prepare to go to the front with the Red Cross? Of course, I suppose there are a number of other things you can suggest, but nursing and farming seem much the most im portant tasks. Will you advise me how to go about one or the other?" Sometimes investigation discloses the fact that Anna is a puny little creature who has been treated like a hothouse plant. I may find that Mabel is subject to nervous neaa aches if she gets into the hot sun light and that Zaidel fainted once when she tried to wash a ait in her brother's hand. At least half the girls who want to be nurses or "farmerites" are physically and temperamentally nnfit for the job. The romance of tilling the soil and of making crops grow in rapid and intelligent rotation is well worth the while of any woman who brings the proper equipment of health and muscle to her work. Nursing is a glorious task if you are fitted to be a nurse. But if roll ing bandages bores you, the menial tasks which must be done in any sick room make you ill, and washing up hospital corridors with disinfectant ia not a part of your picture of nuraing, you Sad better give that up at once, even if you are five feet eight and weigh 150. ' Farming is not a matter of cute lit tle overalls, nor is the chief factor in nursing wearing a Red Cross uniform with charm and distinction. You have to be fit, temperamentally and phys ically fit, in order to do either well. And of the girls who long to show their patriotism and their loyalty to their country and to "do their bit," I fear that not one in ten is fit to cul tivate the soil effectively or nurse the wounded in any manner whatever. Rolling bandages, buying Liberty bonds, arranging benefits for the wounded are all splendid things to which women must continue their generous and intelligent contribution. But how about the girl who has no money to spend, who has no social pinnacles from which to arrange matinees and bazaars, who is not af filiated with any society which is do ing big things, and who is not vet trained for nay sort of service? She thinks at once of the hospital or the farm and prepares to take a course which will make her fit to work in one or the other. For her I have a suggestion to offer. In any large city there are from one hundred to one thousand girls who want to do their bit. And the small town may, have its offering of anywhere from one to one hundred zealous but untrained young women. The most practical thing they can do is to become office workers. After the draft there will be numerous vacancies in the clerical forces of all our large offices. Not in the melo drama of making munitions or oper ating large machines, but in the everyday work of our business offices lies the chance for the girl who wants conscientiously to "do her bit." The hard-working, clever girl who will apply herself unremittingly can hope to learn typewriting and stenog raphy in two months. It takes the average girl from five to eight months but in war times any ot us ought to be ready to make an honest effort to speed up a bit. There will be in offices such posi tions as telephone operators, file clerks, bookkeepers, secretaries and all the routine office "jobs" requiring either intelligence and willingness plus no training or a great deal of pa tience ana perserverance plus a little SKiHHEgS S?

The Ked Crosses are there, and will be there in greater numbers, because tittle children have emptied precious pennies from their savings banks, young tchool girls gone without their treats, young hoys given money bard earned, men and women given generously and thought (ully. In every civilized country now men and women, and children are pouring out gifts of money and service to the Red Cross. In every civilized country the ones at home look up to tt with comfort and with hope, and daily growing devo- Hon, aa the young men go out to fight training, or much of both. But be tween now and Christmas the girls who really want to do their bit can prepare. The positions which will need the work of these girls who have never worked before will probably bring from $6 to $18 a week. Let us take $12 as our average. Now, even if war time necessity makes these girls who have never be fore had to do any work feel that they must be wage earners, there probably will be no pressing sudden need of their salaries. This, then, is how they can do their bit. Train at once for office po sition which will not require great physical force, ardous efforts in strange fields or Iohr and dangerous journeys to foreign shores. Train for Business, girls. Prepare to he a Volunteer Army of Office Workers Let me give you some figures. Sup pose one thousand of you in New York get positions averaging twelve dollars a week. You are tilling the places of young men who were called to the front young men whose salaries were needed, young men who may be leaving behind them families who are going to suffer because of pride and patriotism and who are go ing to be actually in need.

Then why not do your bit in this wise? Give half of it to form a fund which shall take care of the families of our soldier boys. If in towns of lesser sire theije are lilile bands of girls numbering from ten to .one hundred; if Chicago has two hundred gir' volunteers, and if out in Dillon, Mont., or down in Austin, Tex., there are one or two or three 1 feel that it is in no way extravagant to estimate that here in America there must be at least ten thousand girls whose families are of such means that the daughters are not needed as wage earners. Ambi lion and education fit these girls to become clerical wojkers in our offices. Mow. all you girls who want to do your bit, why can you not work out my susgestion? If there ,is one uf you in the town if there be ten or ten thousand-can you not plan to en ter at once on a course in business college or into such training as will make you a competent office worker, ready to take the place of the men at the front? Can you not act as substitutes in the held of home worV for the boys who have to go to the front? Think over my suggestion, will not training in offices and turning in one half of your salary be a splendid, vital, interesting and truly patriotic way of proving that the women nf America are ready to "do their bit"?
