Will There Be Debutantes? -;
Will there be debutantes this fall?
Even this early mothers of prospec
tive debutantes are beginning to have
decided opinions on the subject and
the consensus seems to be that we
will have none. More girls than
usual of ihe coming-out age expect
to be at home from school this year,
but -war times put a damper on any
thing elaborate in the -way of enter
taining. Miss Florence Neville would have
had her debut party this winter if
world affairs were normal. As it is,
she expects to be at home quietly
with her family' without making her
formal bow to society. Just now she
is visiting school friends in Pitts
burgh and will go on to Canada for
a house party before coming home.
She will be gone at least three weeks.
It's really a shame that anything,
deeply serious or otherwise, should
interfere with the debuts of such
pretty girls as are to be home this
year. Miss Virginia Offutt and Miss
Esther Wilhelni were expected to be
two of this year's debutantes and
either might be eligible for the posi
tion of Ak-Sar-Beri queen. Miss
Naomi Towle and Miss Grace Alli
son are two of last year's special
maids of Ak-Sar-Ben who were count
ed among this year's probable debu
tantes. Miss Clara Hart is expected
to be home .this year and her debut
party would have been a notable event
in social-circles. Miss Hazel Up
dike is another of the pretty scnooi
girls who has entered into the realm
of prospective buds by announcing
her intention to remain .at home..
Perhaps world affairs will have
quieted down by the opening of the
winter season so that peaceful oc
cupations and social functions may be
resumed. - It would be a party sadly
lacking in young menthat could be
given now and even if the youthful
officers from Fort Omaha were sub
stituted they would not fill the places
o boys who have grown tip with
the debutantes. If war should bate
before , .. inter we would find among
us one of the largest group of debu
tantes in recent years.

Advice to Lovelorn
Bjj Beatrice Fairfax
He Wm Comet.
Dear Mies Fairfax: A gentleman invited
two ladle and gentlemen to dine; during
the dinner, the former recognized a busl
nesi friend, left the table, holding a con
versation about five minutes. I contend
that he should have bowed to hie friend in
stead of leaving the table for ao long a
while, the person waa only a business asso
elate and not a personal friend. I main'
tain that ha has an office where he trans
acts business; furthermree, that business
should be eliminated when out for pleas
ure. Did he show courtesy in leaving his
guesti or did he not? F. P.
Why will people make so much fuss about
nothing? What the man did waa entirely
proper. To bring a business friend to the
table and introduce him into a group of
social acquaintances might not have been in
good taste. But to ignore a business ac
quaintance when meeting him outside of
the office would be tactless and foolish.
Tour ideas run contrary to all modern busi
ness methods. No one was in any way
harmed or belittled by what the man did.
No one was left alone or lonely while he
was away. So there la positively nothing
over which to have an argument.

Our Need of
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Here is a little story which was re
cently told me by an officer in our
army, which well illustrates how we
need each other in daily life.
When first some of the men on
the other side faced the enemy they
were a pathetic failure on the fight
ing line. As individuals they were
brave, splendid boys. When they
went forward to attack they had no
solidarity. Their advance fell to
nieces' Their lines did not hold.
Were they sneered at as poor sol
diers? Not at all. Good generals
understand the psychology of human
They were withdrawn to the rear
and ordered into close formation.
Then, elbow to elbow, they were
marched and drilled and counter
marched and marched again. There
were several weeks of that of drill
ing in close formation, elbow to el
bow. Then thev were sent back to the
front rani: trenches. And when they
were thrown forward in attack their
lines held. There was almost half a
mile between man and man in some
of those charges, but the lines held.
Far flung in battle line, with great
erav cans of emptiness between man
and man, they fought as If they had
stood shoulder to shoulder buoyed
up by warm human presence
"Why?" you ask.
Because of the elbow to elbow con
sciousness each man had gained of
, his mates during weeks of drilling
in close formation. Now out in the
murk of No Man s Land they could
not see each other, but they felt
each other. Each man knew that
when he came upon the enemy his
comrades would be there distant.
perhaps, but held close in a common
In the strangeness and horror of
battle the men had felt overwhelm
inelv alone when first thev charged
across the barren wastes toward the
enemy trenches. But standing elbow
to elbow in drill had given each a
deep certainty he could depend on
his comrades. Close human contact
jiad brought them the wonderful as
surance that although straining eyes
could see no comrade, comrades were
there; each man knew he did not ad
vance alone to attack.
And there lies human nature in its
stark simplicity. Loneliness we can
endure, but of "aloneness" we have
an unendurable fear. Fighting alone
against a' hostile world which may
cut us off from everything we hold
dear is too much for nine out of ten
Individualism is a wonderful thing;
we vaunt it highly today. But indi

room and the confidence it gives us.
But there is wonderful reasoning in
the knowledge that somewhere in
the offing there is another man who
will stand by another man who
values the big, fine, clean,, fearless
things which make life.
There is never a situation too harsh
to face bravely if we are sure that love
and understanding will help us when
our powers of endurance fail. .
"Yes,' you say to yourself; "that's

The proposition is not a selfish one.
It cannot be reduced to cold-blooded
terms of demanding everything and
giving nothing. No one in all the
world is completely independent of
other people. A Cecil Rhodes, a Lord
Kitchener may be able to work out
his own destiny without leaning on
other men or asking favors of them;
but even such a man can achieve little
without using other men or working
out his problems through them. t ;
Life is a lonely, fearsome, serious
thing for most of us. But it is never
unendurable while we have the warm
human consciousness that somewhere
out in the No Man's Land through
which we are fighting for honesty,
decency and all those principles which
give humanity progress there are
