War's Effect on Dance; Return of
. The Return of the waltz, "poetry
f motion," aj the bards have named
it, is heralded by W. E. Chambers,
local dancing master, on his return
Wednesday from New York, where
he attended the annual meeting of
the Dancing Masters' Association of
"Not only will we dance the waltz
more than ever since it was put into
the discard by the tango, one-step
and fox-trot, but there will be a great
many waltz steps in all the other
dances essayed," said Mr. Chambers.
War's effect on dancing will be
noted in public places this winter,
where dancing will be discontinued
in many instances, Mr. Chambers be
lieves. "But young people will want
to dance anyway, and there will be
almost as many private dancing par
ties as in the past."
"If there are men with whom to
dance. So many of them have gone
to war," one sweet young thing in
terpolates. Fox-trots and one-steps will fol
low the valtz in popularity.
A new waltz introduced by Mr.
Chambers was adopted by the Danc
ing Masters' association. He brought
home the new steps introduced there,
among them the "Inner Circle Tan
go," the "Jazz," the "Ramble" and the
While east, Mr. Chambers studied
Italian methods "with Stefano Mas

at Milan, who is now in New York.

To give America a singing army
is the plan of a, national committee
on army and navy camp music now
forming in the east, according to
word brought to Omaha by Mrs.
Florence Basler-Palmer, who return
ed early in the week from New York,
where she studied music this summer
with David Bispham.
Mr. Bispham's studio was filled
with singers from many different
states. One day the great baritone
asked each one to wear a badge with
his or her, name and home city on- it

Omaha today, left this morning for

An Omaha girl, Helena M. Chase,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clement
Chase, took one of the four honor
able mentions given by the Art Alli
ance of America at its exhibition in
New York City last week of war post
ers to be used' in advertising the next
Liberty loan. There were 319 de
signs submitted by some of the best
known artists of the country and ex
amined by a very distinguished com
mittee of awards, including W. Frank
Purdy, president of the art alliance;
Frank Vanderlip, president of the
National City bank, and Mrs. Vander
lip, chairman of the poster commit
tee of the federal woman's Liberty
loan committee; J. Herbert Case, vice
president of the Farmers Loan and
Trust company, and Lieutenant Her
bert Reuterdahl, U. S. A.' No names
of the artists were known, all beeing
submitted under symbols.
Miss Chase, who is spending the
summer with Mrs. Chase at Wood
stock, in the Catskilli, the colony
of the Art League of New York, has
been asked to have her design go
with the other winners to Washing
ton, where it will be shown next
week at the Corcoran Art gallery at
the special request of the Treasury
department. The exhibition in New
York proved so popular that it was
extended into this week. The New
York Sun says of "Little Mother,"
Miss Chase's poster, that it "makes
an especial appeal to children." It
shows three little orphans silhou
etted in black atop the world in bright
blue against an orange sky.
A statuette by Miss Chase, "Day
Dreams," has been in the children's
room of the Omaha public library
for two years. She is now 16, a pu

Heavy Fines Keep
Autoists Out of Court
Only five violators of traffic laws
appeared in police court, the smallest
number served with the golden rule
tor some months.
"Why did you park your machine
for such an interminable length of
time on Harney street?" asked Judge
James Fitzgerald of a pretty little
girl in police court.
It was a new hat, she said. "I
found the most adorable one, and
when I was trying it on why, I just
forgot, that's all." '
With the fine added to the cost of
the hat.'it made after all a rather ex
pensive bit of millinery.
Were you going to the South
pole," inquired the judge of C. Strout,
517 Pierce street, who was charged
with speeding south on Thirteenth
street at the rate of forty miles an
hour with his cutout open.
"It looked like I was on my way."
"Five dollars and costs," was his
I. G. Kite, F. Ames, R. Ryness, J.

operating automobiles with open cut
outs. W. P-ierce was fined $1 and
costs for violating the boulevard or
dinance. Grain Men Balk Attempt
To Raise Freight Rates
The Omaha road has been balked in
its attempts to raise freight rates to
all points on its lines in Nebraska. An
application for a raise of 5 to 14 cents
per 10Q pounds had been filed with the
Interstate Commerce commission, to
become effective September -1.
The Omaha Grain exchange pro
tested the advance and now comes
word that a snspension has been or
dered until December 30, the old rates
applying in the meantime.
The Omaha road is operating under
a blanket rate and the plan was to
abolish this and make the new rate a
combination of the locals. It is said
that the application of the proposed
rate would be a serious blow to the
Omaha grain market.
Disposition of Money
From Crane Sale in Doubt
A stumbling block has been thrown
in the way of turning into depleted
city funds the $8,000 received from
the sale of the city's dredge and
crane. It was intended by the coun
cil to do this in order to reimburse
Now Corporation Counsel Lambert
comes along and gives it as his opin
ion that the $8,000 can be covered
into the funds, but that it must be
apportioned pro rata. The disposi
tion of the money will.be determined
next Monday, when the council meets
in committee of the whole.
Guy Liggett, 'president of the Pan
torium, cleaners and dyers, takes ex
ception to a statement given out by
some of the small cleaners that the
big fellows had raised the price on
them. Mr. Liggett says" that some of
the smaller plants were trying to do
a wholesale business and that they
had raised the price from 40 cents to
75 cents, the price always charged by
the big fellows.
"The facts are that the three larg
est plants in Omaha have never
charged less than 75 cents for clean
ing suits for tailors and small clean
ers; this does not include any press
ing either,"' said Mr. Liggett. "During
the twenty years I have been man
ager of the Pantorium we have never
cleaned one suit at wholesale for less
than 75 cents and when we increased
prices last April 10 per cent our
wholesale price went to 85 cents,
where it is now.
"Another thing, none of the big
cleaning plants in Omaha will accept
work for tailors or cleaners who
charge less for the finished job than
they themselves would charge for it.
"It is true that there were twc or
three small plants in the city who did
wholesale work for 35 to 40 cents
per suit, but have, I understand, re
cently raised their prices to 75 cents.
"There is just as much difference
in the quality of cleaning as in qual
ity of clothing and there is also a
difference in the prices charged by
the various cleaning plants in Omaha;
We who do quality work get quality
prices, and always have, and naturally
object to the statement you make that
we have been doing work for half
what it is worth."
Six Women Qualify in
Surgical Dressing Work
The second cards of six women
who took the surgical dressings train

men to act as instructors in the work:

E. L. Bridges Mrs. O. C Redick,
Miss Carolyn Bark-alow, Mrs. C. L.
Burdict and Miss Marie Proulx are
the only women who have received
their second certificates from head
quarters, although a number of other
women ,have taken the course.
"Owing to the vast amount of red
tape in connection with the Red
Cross work and the tardiness in the
arrival of the second cards, the work
in the st'te has been hampered," said
Mrs. Z. T. Lindsey, "I have hundreds
of requests from out in the state for
surgical dressings teachers. Those
who have received their cards will be
sent out as soon as further instruc
tions arrive from the Chicago head
quarters." Carver Starts Roundup of '

which is a good enough illustration
of the fact that some of us are glad
that we have 5 cents carfare. If a car

There is the supreme penalty for

Perhaps the car which is hurtling
through the dark at forty miles an

many even have damages to pay. '

Advice to Lovelorn
By Beatrice' Fairfax
Much Ado About Nothing.
Dear Mlsi Falrax: Nearly (our year ao
I was Introduced to a girl whom I have
learned to lovo dearly. Our friendship re
mained unbroken until about lz month
ago, when we had a misunderstanding over
her action during a vacation.
We were separated for about two month
when at the request of a member of her
family, I called at her home, and matter
were settled satisfactorily. I have since
learned that during her vacation she met
a young man who became attached to her.
Sometime I am doubtful of her love for
me In view of the fast that sh desire to
return to this young man' town and cor
reiponds with htm. T. E, O. v
I think you are making much of a iltua
tton which doe not exist. If you are suspici
ous, and jealous, 'you are likely to drive
the girl you love toward the very course
yon do not want her to take. If aba really
cares for the other man you must accept
your defeat manfully. K she doe not, and
you have a little patience and tact, the
thing will bum Itself out. But If you try
to force the situation you will arouse hu
man nature's natural contrariness.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am 23 and have
gone about with a girl of 21 for two years.
I have taken her to receptions, and on one
occasion she went to her home with another
man. I epoke to her about this, but ihe did
not seem to see much harm in it.
She ha repeated the same thing again,
and on each occasion put m in rather an
embarrassing position, J. M.
This is not question of "harm," but of
good manners. It was distinctly Impolite
and discourteous of the girl you had es
corted to a party to go home with someone
else. I suggest to the girl that she put
herself in your place and try to Imagine
how she would feel were you to treat her
as he a treated you.

theater? It is generally the women
who dash down the aisle and almost
knock over the people who are leav
ing in an effort to get the seats they
have vacated. If men did a thing like
that they would be called cads and
they know it. But women will only
be laughed at good naturedty.
I frequently lunch in a very large
tea room on the avenue which has
an almost exclusive feminine clien
tele. When the place is crowded, the
women look about to see who has
arrived at the pastry and hot choc
olate stage, and then stand ner
vously and irritably waiting for the
lunchers to finish, in order that they
may dash in and take their places.
It isn't a bit polfte or chivalrous, and
the rules of the road ought to say:
"Take your time, wait your turn
placidly and don't give nervous indi
gestion to people who are occupying
the place you covet?
Most of life is a matter of taking
your turn, or standing in line, of wait
ing for the call, "Next!" either in the
doctor's office, at the ticket office or
in the jam for a crowded car. A
little courtesy to the man ahead of
you and a little decent appreciation
of the fact that the man behind you
is as anxious to arrive as you are
all work in as part of the rules of the
Consideration, courtesy, good hu
mor, and a friendly acceptance of
crowding and pushing and shoving
will all help do away with crowding
and pushing and shoving. Help to
ease up the other chap's burden is
not likely to make your own apprecia
bly heavier. Every time you refuse
to wait your turn, every time you en
danger other people's comfort for
your own, or demand more than your
share of room, you are smashing up
the simple traffic laws which insure
your comfort and safety as surely as
they do those of every one else.
It isn't "sporting" to break the
rules of the road, and it frequently
gives you a moment's extra time,
an instant or two of comfort and
achievement, but that doesn't help
you much when you pay for your in
fringement of the rules in terms
of the discourtesy and law-breaking
you have helped to make popular.
