PRETT'Y YOUNG MOTHERS and sweet, bright babies
form an attractive sight these pleasant afternoons out
in Happy Hollow court. Any number of young people
have established their homes in this neighborhood and it is a
delight for the mothers of these small families to meet during
the baby parade. Almost any fine day you may see several
of them wheeling their baby carts along the smooth walks,
enjoying themselves far more than if, they had turned the
care over to a careless nurse. The Bee photographer snapped
this little group one afternoon while they were enjoying the
Everyone is wholesome and happy enough to suit any
eugenist. Master Harold Sobotker, jr., was almost too tiny
to be seen in his huge enveloping cab, so that the camera man
had to set him on the sloping lawn to catch his chubby baby
face. Little Miss Lois Caroline McFayden took the whole
business in serious fashion and watched everything that was
done with a very wise expression. Miss Adelaide Armstrong
and Miss Mary Laura Vance must have been looking for the
birdie which always flies from a camera for little folks, and
perhaps little Adelaide saw it, for there is just a wee smile
on her face.

Chicago may nave its allied
bazar, Minneapolis may have
its big society base ball games and
San Francisco Tnay have its all na

novel in the way of a war relief bene
fit it will pay you to attend the lawn
fete at Binnie Brae, the John L. Ken
nedy home in Fairacres, Saturday
from 3 to 8.
Where do you wish to begin? If
you are a little society girt or boy,
ypu II find it no end of lun to ride the
ponies or buy balloons. If you're
somewhat older the fish pond may ap
peal to you or you'll surely like the
Punch and Judy show. For people
of all ages the ice cream marquee
will be a drawing card and, let me tell
you, Mrs. H. C. Sumney, who is in
charge, has solicited some of the most
delicious home-made candy and cakes
that you care to tasle. Mrs. E. C.
Twam ley's lemonade boodi promises

Sporting gentlemen and fashionable
women may want a real live, blooded
cocker spaniel which is already in
the hands of an Omaha fancier. This
dog Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy have given
for auction at the fete. For lovelorn
lassies and timid bachelors the fortune
teller's booth has been designed. The
gypsies guarantee to tell accurately
your past, present and future.
Everyone likes flowers and now
that summer flowers are here in pro
fusion few people, young or old. will
be able to resist the temptation to
slop at a garden booth presided over
by pretty women and girls in flower
trimmed garden hats, perhaps dressed
in smart smocks and bearing baskets
of roses in their arms. Not long since
the fashionable magazines were filled
with such charming pictures of the
Newport flower sale when the elite
donned garden garb to make hist
tuch things as these come true.
Some of the features of the booths
of America and its allies will be abso
lutely irresistible. For instance, Mrs.
Warren S. Blackwcll has secured the
assistance of thai popular young
Italian journalist, .Mr. Claudin Deli
tala. to prepare and serve spaghetti in
typicat Italian style. Pretty Mrs.
Fred Hamilton and handsome Mrs.
William Sears Poppleton will assist
Mrs. Blackwcll in Italian costume.

planning to appear in their prettiest
and British booths and elsewhere on
the grounds. 'Twould never do to

yourself. The rarest" treat of all for
the truly esthetic will be found in the
garage picture gallery. Past all doubt
it has been learned that the Raemak

fete. The ten original cartoons and
1J5 Raenwker's prints of different sub
jects will be on display. A few signed
artists' proofs will be on sale, to
gether with less valuable reproduction
of these famous cartoons.
This lawn' fete is to be a tempting
little bit of all the war relief parties
given in other cities. Lawn parties
in clear warm weather are always at
tractive, but such a lawn festa as this
must surely draw the crowds. Binnie
Brae is sufficiently out in the country
to make the event a real excursion, so
that a jitney-service has been chart
ered for the use of those who live in
town. Society will be there in good
round numbers, for the sponsors

venders and to make the gathering
a joyous success.
One beautiful thing about this war

you will do it with a sense of duty

Country Clubs Plan Fellowship
Gatherings During Summer Season
JUST to have a club house with
perfectly patent reasons for be
ing is not enough for the Oma
ha country clubs. That is, their
function is not merely to furnish a
place to take meals and play golf and
dance. To some extent each of the
clubs is arranging various plans for
promoting fellowship among its mem
bers. The get-together spirit which
animates people is being cultivated
and directed in various ways.
Happy Hollow club has instituted
an entertainment committee consist
ing of Mr. Frank C. Builla. chairman.
Miss Henrietta Rees and Mrs. F. J.
jumper. Last week this brainy com
mittee met and conceived a host of
brilliant ideas for the entertainment
of the patrons of Happy Hollow club.
Their first step has been to call a
meeting of all women members at the
club house Tuesday at 2 p. m. There
they will submit their propositions, to
be adopted or discarded by those at
tending the meeting.
If their plans go well the women
of the club will soon have formed a
kensington group to sew for the Red
Cross or War Relief organizations
with summer headquarters at the club
house. Special arrangements will be
made for their accommodation so that
any who have dreaded the warm days
in the sewing rooms downtown will
be able to work in comparative com
fort in the cool of the country club
one afternoon a week. Other tenta
tive plans include a woman's card
club to meet one afternoon a week, a
dancing class for women on another
afternoon and special musicals and
exhibitions of esthetic dancing on
club dinner nights. They also plan
to give Mr. High Cost of Living a
deadly blow at a High Cost of Living
dinner during July. An inexpensive
dinner will be served and prizes will
be offered for the most appropriate
