One of the serious problems con
fronting the business world just now,
with so many young men being called
into military service, is the scarcity of
trained telegraphers. As a preparatory
measure, the Young Women's Chris
tian association is offering a course
in this important subject, as positions
in telegraph offices will have to be
filled by girls and women.

Another branch which will be of
compelling attention on account .of
the war is the study of French. Our
present relations with France iake
this language far more interesting to
us than ever before. To meet the
growing demand the French depart
ment at the Young Women's Chris
tian association will have additional
classes during the coming year.
The current events class, which was
very popular last year, will doubtless
have increased attendance this sea
son, for we are "making history" ev
ery day during these war times and
this class will be of great aid in keep
ing up with the rapid trend of events.
The United States government is
laying special stress on the teaching
of English and Iijs asked the Young
Women's Christian associations all
over the country to co-operate with
it. Classes for new Americans, be
ginning and advanced classes, will be
an important part of the educational
work of the association. Courses will
be offered in practical English and
A' new and popular course in sales
manship will also be offere This
course will not only include theory,
but some practice work,' and will be
given by an expert.
Office training and commercial law
are two of the practical courses of
fered. The domestic science and household
arts departments will present the fol
lowing courses: Dietectics, cookery,
1, 2, 3; luncheon, class, supper class,
speicial cookery, diet in disease and

Present Is Opportune
Time for Young Folks
The young man or young woman
who fails to enter a good business
college this fall will miss the biggest
opportunity ever presented, according
to President H. B. Boyles of Boyles
"It is an unusual situation," said Mr.
Boyles, "brought about by the arrival
of a critical period in the life of the
nation. Enlistmnt of young men in
the military service has rendered var
cant thousands of good positions in
the business world. In addition, the
military activities of the government
has made necessary the creation of
many new clerical and stenographic
positions in the nation's service.1
"Now all these new positions and
the old ones that have been left va
cant, must be filled by young men
and women. It is obvious that men
who are too old for military service
will not be consedered for these
places, because they cannot adapt
themselves readily to new conditions.
Hence the opportunity is for the
"If young men are face to face
with t'.ieir biggest chance, as they are,
think what the situation means to
young women. Positions are offered
them more numerous than ever be
fore and in avenues where they never
befor hopd for mployment. More than
ever before they will be given re
sponsible positions in the large in
dustrial concerns. The railroads are
opening up the telegraph service to
them; in fact, one big eastern road
is now employing 2,000 of them. This
is significant when you consider the
fact that Boyles college has never
been able to turn out enough telegra
phers to meet the demand."
College of St. Thomas.
The College of St. Thomas, St. Paul,
Minn., during the last year has added a
stately chapel to the buildings that fringe
In ever-lengthening line the avenue wind
ing through the grounds. Embodying the
grace and dignity of the Byzantine churches
of northern Italy, the new chapel consti
tutes a distinct acquisition to the college,
and a contribution to ecclesiastical architec
ture In the northwest. The college now
comprises eight buildings: Administration,
residence hall, chapel, dormitory, recitation
hall, armory and club house, and military
building. These buildings, with the grounds,
represent an investment of nearly 11,000,000.
Eight hundred and thirty student were
enrolled at St. Thomas last year. Of these,
the northwest contributed the bulk, but
more distant states, among them New York,
Rhode Island, California, Oklahoma. Wash
ington, Wyoming and Kentucky, contributed
their quota. The students are organised
Into a corp of eedets, comprising silne
companies, a military brass band, a signal
corps and other minor organizations. An
officer of the United States army, detailed
by the War department and assisted by four
energetic sergeants of the regular army, has
charge of the military training. Every day
every studont turns out under arms, for an
hour of drill forme part of the daily routine
at St. Thomas.
St. Thomas Is recognized as an Institution
of full collegiate rank by the University of
Minnesota; It Is accredited to the North
Central Association ot -Colleges, an affilia
tion which opens to its students the doors
of every university and college In eighteen
states. Its credits are honored In various
eastern universities and at West Point.
The prospects of St. Thomas for the
coming year look bright. With Its grounds
extending over fifty-five acres in the most
beautiful suburb of St. Paul, with its eight
buildings, with Its splendid library and Its
excellently equipped laboratories, and with
Its learned and devoted faculty, St. Thomas
la said to be rapidly becoming one of the
greatest educational and religious forces In
the United States.

The location of Mt. St. Mary'a academy
Is one of the most desirable In the Gate
City, Situated only a block from two car
lines. It Is within easy reach of the center
of the city and its transportation facilities.
The beautiful, well kept grounds, well venti

pared food contribute to the physical wel
fare of the students.
The day and boarding school for young

rough education, a school not only for a
fine education, but for culture and religious
training. The education afforded trains
young women to become useful and accom
plished members of the home circle and ot
society. ' r
It is Interesting! to note that eight of
the young women ot the graduating class
of 1917 have already secured positions as
teachers in the state and Iowa.

Reposing in a vault in the book
store of Henry Kieser is a book of
ancient maps made from 1650 to 1750,
said to be one of the most valuable
books in Omaha. It contains forty- .
seven maps and in the New York
book market such maps sell at from
$200 to $250 each. At this price the
book would-be worth some $10,000.
The maps were printed in Amster
dam, Holland, and are the works of
the geographers, Carrollum Allard,
Nicolaum Visscher and others. The
maps are geographical and war, and
navigators' charts. They are highly
colored by hand.
The fourth map in the book is that
of America. All the norhwestern part
is blank. California is shown as an
island. The Mississippi and Missouri
rivers are missing. Lake Michigan
is shown vaguely as the "Glacial Sea."
New York and the New England
states are marked "New Francia." A
large bay is shown to extend in
through Pennsylvania, Ohio and In-
diana to the Great Lakes.
Desert a Fertile Plain.
The map of Africa represents the
Nile to have its source in two lakes
south of the equator. One of these
lakes is connected by river with the
Atlautic ocean. What is the Sahara
desert is shown to be fertile land
Another map shows the campaigns
of the king of France and the allies
in the low countries in the year 1690.
It shows the lines of march and every
battle line and the letter press at
tached shows a chronological history
of the campaigns from 1690 to 1693.
"The collection of maps was prob
ably made from 100 to 150 years ago,"
said Mr. Kieser, ""and was bound in
pasteboard. Mr. Spofford, the
librarian of congress, declares H to
be the most valuable collection of
maps of the period that he has ever
seen. A few of them, but very few,
are in the congressional library and
are highly prized."
Mf. Kieser secured the book from
the library of the late General Charles
F. Manderson, who received it from
the chaplain of his regiment, who, iu
turn, bought it in London.
Away with the din of down town traffic,
with a wide stretching green campus and
shaded by beautiful trees, the Mosher Insti
tute located in tse attractive Terrace Club
House connected with the Strehlow apart
ments offers undoubtedly the most ideal sur
roundings for studying and comfort of any
shorthand school in the middle west.
It was in response to an insistant demand
for Instruction In Mosher shorthand and
typewriting, that the Mosher Shorthand
company decided to organise a permanent
Institute where students may specialize on
F. W. Mosher, well known In Omaha as
a shorthand Instructor, is president of the
Mossher Shorthand company and he now de
votes practically all his time to teaching
Ms system In the institute.'
Besides its regulaf course, the Mosher
Institute offers at exceptional rates a home
study course, which young people employed
will find greatly to their, advantage to pur
sue, for they tan keep their position and
do their studying during leisure hours. The
Indications are that the school will be taxed
to Its capacity when the September
class Is opened, for it and the home study
department is growing in leap and bounds.
