' That Battle Cabaret Dinner.
. To be very truthful, the entertain
ment committee at Happy Hollow
club "slipped something over" on all
the members when it invited them to
a "battle cabaret dinner," full of mys
tery and thrills. Did anyone care,
though? Not a bit of itl Everyone
had a splendid time and felt a little
touch of war sentiment besides.
FUgs were the principal reminder
that the occasion was particularly
'warlike" and patriotic. Huge Amer
ican flags hung above the doorways
and in every portico. Each table had a
standard bearing three or four small
American nags and flags of the allies,
At each place a tiny silk flag reure
senting one of the allied nations had
been placed and these were the key
to the situation. The committes wrote
a little note to-the guests at erh
table Saying, "You drew these link
flags as the boys did their draft rum
bers, only it didn't hurt your feelings
so much, ihe.note further explained
that during dinner only those holding
flags ot the same nations would be
permitted to dance together and lust
with each one of these there n;ir.
be onlv one 'lance. .
That ingenious committee also dis
missed the feature of cabaret girls
vith a line. Said they, "You know
that the government has asfcel us nil
to conserve in every possible way,
Wc conserved the cabaret girU for
Red Cross nurses. A number o
khski uniforms scattered among the
guests gave a touch of "baKle" to
the scene. Just before desse.t was
served a suspicious crackling which
suggested a miniature bombirdment
sounded from a remote: part of the
club house. Then out went thi lights

a little Boy Scout in uniform carry

feet with the. strains of the national
anthem applauded vigorously until he
made his way the entire length of the
room and with a salute had disap
Tables ranged around the ball room
and in all the adjoining alcoves were
occupied by parties and others came
in after dinner for the dancing.
Meets Russian Commission. '
One Omaha girl has had the privl
lege of meeting the diplomats of the
Russian commission who are travel
ing across the continentvisiting the
various cantonments and large army
camps. That was Miss Virginia Pix-
ley. who is at Fort Riley, Kan., the
guest of Major and Mrs. Louis Nutt
man and their daughter, Miss Betty
Mitchell. Thursday of last week the
commission arrived at Fort Riley
and after being escorted from the
train by a provisional troop of cav
alry, inspecting the post and canton
ment and watching a training regi
ment pass in review, in the evening
they were guests at a reception at
the home of General and Mrs. Allen,
where Miss Pixley was one of the
young women who had the pleasure
of meeting them. Miss . Pixley ex
pects to return to Omaha the end of
this week and then will probably go
to Prior Lake, Minn., where her
mother,. Mrs. W. A. Pixley, and sis
ter, Rowena, have been for ten days,
to spend the month of August.
