Pinched on Booze Charge;
Blames Beer Truck Driver
Joseph Kushner, proprietor of a
second-hand store at 1S20 North
Twenty-fourth street, was brought
before Police Judge Fitzgerald,
charged with the illegal possession of
intoxicating liquor. The charge con
cerned Kushner's keeping the liquor
in his store and not in his home.
Kushner blames the brewery truck
driver for his plight, asserting that
on April 25 he ordered the beer, and
when the driver came to deliver it
there was no one home. The driver
then left it at the store and refused
to take it back to the house.
Kushner couldn't induce any ex
pressman to take the goods up to his
house for him, so thereby hangs the
tale. His case was held over until
Saturday. Seven cases of beer were
found in his store and confiscated.

WOMEU HERE READY
Conservation Movement For
mally Begun With Opening
of Down Town Headquar-
ters; Visit Housewives.
Omaha's food conservation army is
now correlated into a working unit
which will begin Monday morning to
assist Food Administrator Herbert
C. Hoover in routing gaunthunger
and implacable famine from the allied
countries and the homes of America.
Although Nebraska is one of the last
states to organize for this campaign
plans are now definitely made for a
whirlwind canvass of the housewives
of Omaha. Mrs. H. C. Sumney was
chosen chairman of the local com
mittee at a meeting in the council
chamber at the city hall and Miss
Gladys Shamp was appointed secre
tary and publicity manager.
Women Open Headquarters.
The new organization lost no time
in opei-ing headquarters and prepar
ing its drive on extravagant house
wives. With the co-operation of the
Campfire Girls under the supervision
of Mrs. J. W. Robbing, Miss Jessie
Towne and Miss Nell Ryan, the
women began work ' this morning.
Desk room was given the Campfire
Girls in the Red Cross headquarters,
which will serve the food conserva
tion committee also for headquarters.
Scoutmaster C. H. English loaned
the Boy Scouts maps which were used
in the Red Cross campaign to the
Campfire girls. These are carefully
marked oft into districts with a cer
tain' number of pledge cards assigned
to each district.
Campfire Girls. '
When the Campfire girls begin
their canvass they will simply ask the
housekeeper to sign the pledge and
return it to them. If she wishes a
food conservation button and window
placard she will pay 10 cents. When
the canvass is over these cards will be
sent together to Food Administrator
Hoover in Washington by express.
No fee is required to sign the pledge.
It simply denotes that the head of the
house who is in charge of the food
supply willingly co-operates with the
government in carrying out its advire
and suggestion in the conservation of
food and elimination of waste during
the period of the war.
It was first thought that Omaha
women would have charge of Douglas
county, but word from Mrs. A. E.
Davisson of Lincoln, chairman of the
work in the state, said that they would
only be responsible for Omaha.
Bee Wants-Ads Produce Results.
FALLS SIXTY FEET
Child Hits Hard Ground Below
With Force Enough to Kill,
But Apparently is Uninjured.
Crawling across the bed into a win
dow of which the screen was open,
and falling three stories to the ground
was the fate of the 18 months bid
child of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Parker
of the Angelus apartments. A de
liveryman making deliveries at the
apartment heard something hit the
ground near him and looking down
discovered the child.
The father was out of the city and
Mrs. Parker was in the room alone
with the child, when the screen to
which it had crawled suddenly
opened, allowing the child to plunge
sixty feet to the earth below.
The mother immediately ran down
stairs and found the deliveryman just
picking up the child, which was cry
Shortly after Dr. H. M. Fitzgib
bons arrived, but could find nothing
wrong with the child. It was trans
ferred to Lord Lister hospital, but
is all right, unless internal injuries de
Experiments made later showed
that the child hit with enough force
to have been instantly killed.
On Stolen Automobiles
To further co-operation throughout
the state in catching automobile
thieves the Omaha Automobile club
will insert an advertisement in each
of the Omaha newspapers, giving the
description of the stolen car.
Garage men and auto dealers in Ne
braska and Iowa are asked to lend a
hand in the plan and keep the descrip
tions for reference. By doing this they
protect the traveling public which
spends 'thousands of dollars a year
Let Not the Kaiser
See This Window Display
In the window of the Milwaukee's
Farnam street offices City Passenger
Agent Bock has hung a picture that
is attracting universal attention. Mr.
Bock is the owner of a large-sized
picture of the city of Berlin. From
some place he has secured a num
ber of small American flags and at
tached them to the Berlin buildings,
giving the impression to the casual
observer that the Americans are in
possession of the city.

Still Raise Fund Novel schemes
for raising money for the Red Cross
come to light every day. The latest
is the plan of the Nemaha county
chapter, which has a membership of
4,000, most of whom are German peo
ple, and $18,000 in the treasury. The
campaign began in June and their
quota Is $16,000.
Rev. A. Allen Randall of Auburn,
Neb., secretary of the chapter, vis
ited the Omaha headquarters this
morning and said that Red Cross auc
tions were the most successful proj
ects thero. A calf which was set up
for auction in Johnson, Neb., brought
$330 for the Red Cross. Each person
tried to outbid the other and the
amount raised eaoh time was donated
by the bidder to the cause. The man
raising the bid the highest was given
the calf, which in this case was do
nated by the winner to the cause.
Later it was sold outright at a regular
auction for $87. which was also given
to the Red Cross.

To Quickly Remove
Ugly Hairs From Face
Beauty-destroying hairs are soon
banished from the skin with the aid
of a delatone paste, made by mixing
some water with a little plain pow
dered delatone. This is spread upon
the hairy surface for 2 or 3 minutes,
then rubbed off and the skin washed
to remove the remaining delatone.
This simple treatment banishes every
trace of hair and leaves the skin
without a blemish. Caution should be
used to be certain that it is delatone
you buy. Advertisement.
