Asks Court to Make Former
Husband Pay Alimony
...... .r- T-.- J : 1
Mrs. Jouisc von jjorn, uivuivcu
wife of John E. Von Dorn, attorney,
has begun a fight before Judge Day,
sitting in equity court, to enforce a
judgment for $11,000 alimbny granted
her in 1908.
. Her attorneys . allege she got only
$3,000 of the amount awarded her by
the court when she was granted a
decree in 1908.
Mr. Von Dorn was married to his
stenographer, Nellie Rubin, at Glen
wood, la., in 1911.
Mrs. von jjorn jno.. x, was not in

Mrs. Von Dorn No. 1 ttstintd she
and her husband started to live to
gether again the day after the divorce
was granted in 1908.
Judge Day intimated the Omaha at
torney may find himself with two
wives before the case is ended.
Though the Von Dorns were di
vorced, the fact they lived together
three years after the decree was
granted, according to Mr. Von Dorn
No. l's testimony, may constitute a
'common law marriage, Judge Day
said. ' "

Jerry Howard sa:; he has some twenty-five
of the women talked into the
notion of organizing and demanding
a minimum of $50 a month. .
Postmaster Charles E. Fanning
asked Howard to get out of the post
office building when Jerry recently'
sleuthed about the halls agitating for
organization among the scrub women.
"By the gee, throw me out," shout
"Oh, no," replied Postmaster Fan
ning. "I'm too wise to do that, for
you'd be running to the newspapers
with the story. But I should never
theless like to have you go and stop
Jerry succeeded in seeing some
twenty-five of the. women in various
parts of the city and he declares 'all
of them are willing to join the union.
Jerry has been investigating the wages
paid and insists that the average char
woman in the banks and other big
buildings , in Omaha get only $30 a
month for scrubbing-all night long,
while those in the court house get $50.
Clark Refuses to Heed
-Anonymous tJooze tips
Sheriff Clark yesterday reiterated his
statement of several months ago that
he will pay no heed to -anonymous
letters and telephone calls "tipping
him off" to places where "booze is be
ing sold." . 7
"Anvrtne who asks me to investigate
places should give their names, at
least," said Sheriff Clark. "If they
know booze is being sold, it is their
duty to let the authorities know, but
names .must ,be given.: I'm tired of
getting letters signed "Boosjter for a
Drier Omaha," "A Taxpayer." "A
Well Wisher." etc. We welcome in
formation on people and places who
violate the law, but anyone who is in
terested enough to write letters,
should be conscientious enough to
give their names."

A good, square meal of two courses

How's that, Madame Housewife and
Monsieur Restaurant Keeper, for a
record? Can you beat it?
It takes the United States army to
do things with thoroughness and dis
patch. And if they only "clean up"
on the kaiser's forces as well as they
do on the mess hall table at Fort
Crook the war will end shortly.
A Bee reporter and a Bee photog
rapher were invited to dinner, so the
statement that it was a good dinner
comes with authority. Here's the
menu, a sample of the ones served the
boys each day:
Boned beef with bpanish sauce.
Bread and butter.
Rice pudding with milk.
And the Spanish sauce had onions
and tomatoes, green peppers and kin
dred spicy things in it, while the rice
pudding was chotk full of raisins.
There was plenty;of sugar, for the
tea and every one had all the help
ings he wanted from the big steam
The machine gun company and the
sanitary detachment played hosts.
They had not been warned of their
guests coming, so there was no time
to get up a company dinner. Lvery
day fare in the camp was what they
wanted to sample and they came away
satisfied that Uncle bam is feeding
his men well.
See the Grub Vanish!
The mess sergeant is allowed 46
cents a day for each man. As the com
missary department, of course, makes
no profit on its sales, and buys in
wholesale quantities, this is a- liberal
A bushel of potatoes, twenty-five
loaves of bread, ten, pounds of sugar,
were some of the things required for
this one meal served to the two com
panies. The cooks are enlisted men,
each a culinary specialist. All the
kitchens are daily inspected and clean
liness and order are the rule.
But who wouldn't be a cook under
suclv pleasant conditions? For, let us
whisper to Madame Housewife, the
soldiers -.vash their own dishes, as
well as set their own table. Wrhen
your boy comes home you will find

Promptly at noon the mess call
sounded and the whole bunch clatter

line formed before the serving table,
a la cafeteria, the plates were rapidly
heaped with food and the tables filled.
No table cloths are used, but the
boards are scrubbed white.
. Oh, These Army Cooks.
After a morning of drilling in the
open appetites need .no .coaxing and
the f' ad vanishes as if by magic. Each
soldier, as he finishes, carries his
dishes to the kitchen, washes them
and puts them away in an appointed
