Advice to the Lovelorn
By Beatrice Fairfax ,
Ancestors Fought in Other Wars.
Ever and anon in these warlike
times we hear of a young man whose
desire to be of service to his country
is strengthened by the example of pa
triotic forbears. With a little inves
tigation these examples multiply. If
one could give an indefinite time to
searching the records of all the young
soldiers, sailors and airmen who have
offered their services in Omaha he
would doubtless find many descend
ants of the heroes of other wars or
of our sturdy Pilgrim fathers. The
lists of the, daughters and sons of
the American revolution1 contain the
names of many of these Omaha boys,
but others who proudly trace their
ancestry back to some of history's
bravest soldiers are not to, be found
there. A member of the family in
each war which has engaged the peo
ple of the United States is the record
of some of the present volunteers.
How could they do else than follow
the example of their ancestors?
Phillip and Roger McCullough of
the signal corps, sons of Mr. and
Mrs. T. VV. McCullough, have a rec
ord of officer ancestors in Washing
ton's army which would majce any
young man rally to the flag. Cuth
bert and Cedric Potter, sons of Mr.
and Mrs. Philip Potter, are descend
ants from the colonial governors and
one of their grandsires, Dr. John An
drews, was a surgeon for seven years
in the revolutionary army.
Major' Roger Howard Williams,
son of Mrs. Elizabeth Williams, as his
name indicates, is descended from the
line of colonial governors. He has
had. a career in the regular army and
was one of the first Omaha boys to
be of service in- the present war.
Dr. B. C. Russum, son of Mr. and
Mrs. W. B. Russum, who is waiting
an appointment in the medical reserve
corps, traces his ancestry back to rev
lutionary soldiers. Dr. Russum, who
has been completing his medical
course at interne irf a Brooklyn hos
pital, arrived in Omaha Monday for
B suuil visit Willi ma paikina utiuic
being called to service.
Captain Robert Burns traces his
ancestry back to the revolution. Gil
bert Stubbs, son of Mrs. J. J. Stubbs
of Omaha, is another son of the revo
lution who has offered i his services
to the country. He is now in. New
York awaiting call. Mrs. J. B. Ad
ams and Mrs. F. C. Timm are Daugh
ters of the American revolution whose
sons are serving their country in the.,
present war. ' . '.
The two sons of Mrs. Nancy J.
Moore, Claire and Wendell, come
from good colonial stock. John Han
cock and John Quincy Adams were
their progenitors and every genera
tion of the family has had some rep
resentative in West Point. Captain
James Prentice at the Fort Omaha
balloon school is a cousin of Mrs.
Moore- Brigadier General .Jimory
Upton is a great uncle of the two
boys; another relative, Roy Upton, is
now fighting in France and they are
also, related to General Cadwallader,
who is with the troops at the front.
At the home ofMr.and Mrs. Jud
son Van Dorn, Wednesday evening,
Mr. Harojd R. Sozier of Omaha and
Miss Ethel D.ickerson of Guide Rock,
Neb., were, united in marriage by the
Rev. C. N. Dawson, in the presence of
the relatives. Their home will be at
2416 Fowlerv avenue.

Home from Camp.
Thursday morning a group of.
healthy, happy girls returned to their
homes in Omaha from a summer
spent at Camp Michigamme, in north
ern .Michigan. There they have
tramped, done handicraft work, en
joyed water sports and any number
of other entrancing things which only
a group of girls living- in the great
outdoors have the freedom to do. At
one time the entire camp, about sixty
girls in canoes, took a three-day
trip to Pequaming on Lake Superior.
Ihe greater number of girls came
from the middle west, one was from
Kentucky-, many were from Ohio,
Chicago, Kansas City, and six were
from Omaha. The latter two groups
tented together and were especially
friendly. Miss Helen Eastman has
gone to the camp for a ten-day post
season stay before she resumes her
art work in Chicago.
