Would-Be Nurses Witness Operation.
If you are a member of one of the
Red Cross home-nursing classes these
'lays you j know what the trainings
means, but there may still be a few
unenlightened ones who still cling to
the idea that to be a war nurse means
simply the donning of ' a becoming
nurse's uniform and of performing du
ties no heavier, than smoothing some
(masftuline) sufferer's brow. , Let me
tell yot that there is a far mort seri
ous side to it than that.
' One of the home-n'ur9irig classes of !
the ity, whose instructor ts Miss J.
E. Graham, head nurse at the Presby
terian hospital, had to witness an ap
pendicitis operation at this hospital
Monday, the operation being per
formed by Dr. L. A. Dermody.
It was not a pleasant experience, i
assure you. As the members of the
class are some of the prominent young
girls and matrons, many social en
gagements were canceled Tuesday as
a result of the morning's harrowing
I think you will agree with me that
the brow smoothing stunt is quite ob
solete and that in these strenuous
times the would-be nurses must deal
with facts or, rather, appendixes.
If you really wish to know what the
sensations are while watching an op
eration you might ask any of the fol
lowing young women: Miss Margaret
Baum. Miss Grace Allison, Miss Flor
ence Neville,' Miss Regina Cdnnell,
Miss Hedwig Rosenstock, Mrs. Fred
eric Rosenstock, Mrs. R. L. Hamilton,
Mrs. Carlisle Whiting or Mrs. Arthur
Rothschild. . '

Mrs. Metz in Concert.
At a concert given for the benefit
of the soldiers who have been blinded
in the war, In Buffalo, Sunday even
ing, Edmund Grasse, the distinguished
blind violinist, assisted by Mrs. Philip
E. Metz, soprano, gave the program.
Some of the society girls of Buf
falo acted as ushers for the affair.
Regarding Mrs. Metz' part in the
programme Buffalo Courier says:
"Mrs. "Norma Mack Metz, a charm
ing young soprano, was a lovely pic
ture in a rose satin and tulle gown,
as she "appeared upon the stage es
corted by Dr. von Bergen. Her sim
ple, unaffected manner and clear,
sweet voice with its fresh lyric tones
made all her numbers delightful,
which Included 'Si Mes Vers Avaient
des Allies,' by H. plough Leighter;
also the aria, 'Vissi d Arte, by Puc
cini, which she gang with intelligence
of a finely schooled singer.
"As an extra Mrs. Metz sang "The
Long, Long Trail' and, recalled for an
encore, repeated the chorus, in which
she asked a number of young people
present to join, and the effect of
youthful voices, in which hers stood
out lpvely and clear, was charming.
She was given a handsome basket of

These patriotic girls of the Central
High school had charge of the boxes
for old magazines which were col
lected today at the High school. Each
pupil, although only asked to bring
one magazine apiece, brought several
and put them in the boxes, white the
cadet band played the "Star Spangled
CLARIE WISNER, HAZEL LAKE, VIRGINIA MOORE,
Banner." The money from the sale
of them will go to the fund for high
school boys who are now in the serv
ice of Uncle Sam.
Paper and magazines will be col
lected during the remainder of the
week as the first step toward raising
the fund. Other lines of economy
and service will be emphasized next
Thirty-four ' boys have, pledged
themselves to earn $10 each and do
nate it to the Young' Men's Christian
association fund. This will bring the
total given by teachers and pupils of
the school up to about $750..

Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
, tteclar Your Lov.
Dear Mlsa Fairfax: Tour answer will, at
four rolndi at ease, and will probably bring
about a aenaibla continuation of rtendhlp.
A baa been going with Mlaa B lor two
year isrlouiily and their engagement was
not ta have been tar off. One night Ml B
had an unexpected visit from her chum, Mlsa
C, while A waa present with her. They spent
a pleasant evening home. Miss B offered to
take Mies' C as far as the station, mean
while knowing that her fiance could not
conveniently tafte the subway to his home,
and not wishing to put blm to trouble unnec
essarily. However, A suggested that be would walk
as far as the subway with the girls and
sines he must travel by "L." would pass Miss
B's borne anyhow, thereby bringing her
home again. ,
By the time farewells bad been spoken
A, noticing how late it was, asked bis
fiancee It she would mind if he wuld go
home by subway. Miss B, astonished, said
of course she would, and that she, never
went home alone so late. He was undecided
as to which course to take, when Miss B
declared that she wouldn't go home with
him If he wanted her to, and wanted' noth
ing else to do with him.
Meantime Miss C went Into a train with
A and when her station came, he offered
to take her home, which she accepted. She
called her friend, Miss B, up the next day
to tell her so. whereupon Miss B said It
didn't matter to her, that she doesn't cars
anything for A, and that she notified him
of her feelings.
Since then A Is visiting Miss C, but the
latter Is no longer friendly with Miss B. I
am an old friend of Miss B and have loved
her for some time, but have nsver dared
approach her on (he subject, knowing her
attitude toward A. Now then, Mlas Fairfax,
I would put the following queries:
1. Did A do right in the first place by
offering to take ht fiancee homo and then
neglecuto do so?
. Did Miss B's anger justify itself?
3. Did Miss C do right in allowing A to
take her borne while her chum (and his
ostensible sweetheart) went home alone?
4. Is Miss B justified In refusing Miss C's
t. May I now declare my attitude toward
Miss B? W. B. R.
1. No, A did not do tbe right thing at all.
He was lazy and Impolite and failed to keep
bis word to the girl he loved.
t. Miss B might have done better to con
trol herself more thoroughly. Good nature
might easily have solved the situation.
J. Miss C seems to' have acted In a slight
ly "catty" manner, but I don't believe she
meant any real barm. None of these are real
problems. The real question at stake la the
one you number I. In answering It, 1 must
ask' you one In turn: Why under the aun
shouldn't you declare your love for a girl
who Is free to listen to you and probably
sufficiently lonely, hurt and unhappy so
that she really Is badly In need of an as
surance that somebody really cares for her?

By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
From the latest report of a
Woman's club meeting in Omaha,
where more than 200 women were
present, only two held up their
hands when the question was asked
how many women in this audi
ence have servants. Quite different
from last year when most of the
housekeepers "signified by the right

"Isn't it early? asks one woman
who intends to make her little girls'
dresses for the springtime. "I do not
know what materials will be Used

stripes and solid colors,, are begin
ning to come out on the shelves and
tables of retail houses. They wUl
lead in spring materials. Advance
styles in school dresses show sur
plice with pleated skirts and collar
and cuffs of pique or contrasting ma
terials. .The bustle drape, which
has appeared in the afternoon '
frocks for the 14-year-old girl, is
also in evidence in the advance
showing of ginghams.
Beauty unadorned loses , more
than half its loveliness and no one
realizes this more than a mother of
growing girls. It behooves each of
these mothers to figure' on expense,
time( and material. To leave the
spring wardrobe until the last min
ute would be extremely unwise. It
would be a mark of inefficiency in
these strenuous days when Ameri
can women are Hooverizing, econo

As dull draperies cast a gloom
over the grandest homes, so do dull
clothes sadden the brightest spirits.
