THE BEE; OMAHA. WEDNESDAY. JULY 4. 1917.
Society Boys Buy Fireworks.
Mr. Jack Summers, that popular
bachelor, was seen buying fireworks
the other day suitable for little folks,
who must not hurt themselves, as
well as for grown-up- little folks.
Every home seems to be planning to
salute the Fourth in much the same
way -as this young man, for the stores
that sell firecrackers and fireworks are
filled to the brim with customers.
The only one of the country clubs
which intends to make a special dis
play of fireworks is the Carter Lake
club, which will stage a mock marine
battle, or something of like nature,
for the benefit of its patrons. Every
thing in the fireworke line this year is
an imitation of equipment for the
world battle going on across the
water. Little boys are not satisfied
with just ordinary "cap-guns." They
must have imitations of real soldier's
rifles with vhich to salute their coun
try's flag on this Fourth of July. The
"trench torpedo," the "gas light" and
other suggestive terms figure promi
nently in the names of the imitation
' Parties of society people at the
races will be numerous, although
somewhat scattered, because the
active Red Cross workers who have
charge of-the concessions will not be
able to sit -idly in the grand stands
with their friends. Frank W. Jud
son, state director for the Red Cross,
to which organization the proceeds of
the sale of eatables will go, has taken
eats for a party at the races.
Mr. and Mrs. Morris P. Rasmussen
announce the marriage of their sister,
Mies Eva Helene Rasmussen, to Mr.
Herbert William Hatz. son of Mr. and
Mrs. G. J. Hatz, which took place
Saturday night at 9 o'clock at their
home. Rev. M. W. Halverson of Our
Saviour' Lutheran church performed
the ceremony. The bride wore a gown
of gray "Crepe meteor and later a
traveling suit of navy blue French
serge. , - i
Miss Meta Rasmussen and Mr. Carl
Rasmussen, brother and sister of the
bride, were the attendants. Follow
ing a wedding trip to Manitou, Colo
rado Springs and Salt Lake City, Mr,
and Mrs. Hatz will be at home after
August 1 at 4106 Izard street.
Simplest of the society weddings of
the year, and yet withal one of the
most charming, was the union of Miss
Stella Louise Thummel, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. George H. ThummeJ,
to Mr. Frederick Werst Clarke, soil
of Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Clarke. The
ceremony was performed at high noon
in Trinity Cathedral by the bishop
of the diocese, .Arthur L. Williams.
For a half hour preceding the cere
mony the organist gave a recital. The
church was ' decorated with palms and
Easter lilies. Many friends of the
young people attended the church

noon for a wedding trip to Denver

wore a going-away suit of dark brown
gabardine with a brown tailored
georgette crepe sailor and a French
blouse of cream mull.
Out-of-town guests at the ceremony
were the bridegroom's grandmother,
Mrs. Werst, and Miss Elizabeth

Luncheon for Committee. I
Mrs. C. W. Hayes entertained the
summer camp committee of the politi
cal and social science department of
the Omaha Women's club at luncheon
at the Young Women's Christian as
sociation summer camp Monday. This
was one of the first parties to take
advantage of the camp's new restau
rant accommodations. Mrs. Hayes was
chosen chairman of the committee,
which has charge of the fund for en

able to go to the camp there over the
week-end. Miss Susan Paxson and

Huge Totals From Fete.
Between $1,500 and $2,000 will be
the total receipts from the lawn fete
at the John L. Kennedy home in Fair
acres Saturday. Interested readers
of The Bee who have been waiting to
hear the grand total must wait still
longer, for not all the money has
been turned in. Mrs.. John L. Ken
nedy said at noon today that checks
which had come in the morning mail
she had not yet been able to open and
not all the returns from the booths
have come in.
The British booth made the most
money of all, for their total was some
thing over $400. Mrs W. A. C. John
son and Mrs. Dick Stewart with their
corps of assistants sold buttermilk,
iced tea and a variety of other things
and ran some innocent "sideshows"
which produced the satisfactory re
cults. Dr. Harold Gifford purchased the
handsome oil painting which was fot
sale in the Italian booth. Miss Callie
Faddis sold $16 worth of chances on
the gold watch alone and in turn won
the big Uncle Sam doll. Miss Ade

in $70.25 from the sale of dolls. Sam

course. Tlier. is no reason why we
should not celebrate our holidays and
add to the cheer that is still m the
world; but neither is there any reason
why our celebrations should be as
elaborate as they might be in happier
times. A porch supper is always good
fun, and is easilv managed by the
woman without a maid. For the in
formality of it puts every one into the
spirit of a picnic without the bother
of packing and carrying that a picnic
entails. The menu given below could
be served buffet style or as a two
course supper if a large table is used.

final touches of the salad.
For table decoration, most gardens
can furnish red, white, and blue blos

in a white basket with a blue tulle
bow on the handle. Paper tablecloth
and napkins can carry out the Four.h

should be very sparing ot other

By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
"Chaperons!" you cry, "we don't
have them any more in America. This
is a free country and we trust our
girls. Nor do we insult our young
men by setting a guard over them.
Whv write about chaperons? W
don t bave them nowadays!"
Oh, yes, we dol All of our society
all of the freedom we permit our
boys and girls is based on a very ef
ficient system of chaperonage.
Now Frau Schmidt and Madam
Nicollette, dovnot mistake me. This
doesn't mean that when Tom Casey
comes to see your Lena or Renee,
you must plant yourself firmly in the
middle, of the room and supervise the
visit. Nor does it mean that if Tom
wants to take Lena or Renee down to
the corner,for an ice cream soda, you
must send her little brother along.
What is meant is that you must
give Lena and Renee the happy free
dom "of your little home, since it is
a chaperon, and that you must teach
your girl to see her friends in her
home, since that very habit chaperons
and guards her.
The common little slang corrup
tion which a few years ago dubbed
the chaperon the "schlep-along'' in
scornful intimation that she was a fat
old maiden aunt or a hatchet faced
unmarried sister -who had no affairs
of her own and who had to be dragged
along to mind other people's business,
is all wrong.
The real chaperon for all of us
is our innate respeel for propriety
and our understanding of the fact
that society has to have laws ana
Here are two similar situations. One
of them embraces something which
it is quite all right for girls to do and
one "can't be done." Two girls of
23 or 24 are contemplating a visit to
a quiet country farm house for their
vacation. No one asks them to take
along a chaperon. Since they seek
the quiet and peace and simplicity of
the farm, all the guests receive thein
kindly as two tired workers who are
fleeing the city and who have come
for healing and rest.
They a. : two young girls alone, but
if . they behave themselves with dig
nity they are accepted in friendly good
faith. So, too, if they go to au unpre
tentious and well-thought-of little ho
tel at the shore or mountains and
prove themselves worthy. But in this
instance they will probably biion trial
for a day or two. ' '
Now, let these same girls go to a
vividly gay hotel at some extremely
fashionable resort. , Society looks
askance at them. The "nice (women"
hold themselves aloof and the adventure-seeking
men presume. No, of
course, I don't say this is "right"
but that's how it's done.
When two women alone march into
a gay hotel for their vacation the
inference is that if they wanted peace
and quiet and each other's society
they would have gone elsewhere, and

to use too much gelatine if in doubt.
It is possible to make jellied meat
