Is the St. Mary's Cuiisn-gaiioiial
church hoodooed: The nieyibcra are
beginning to fear that it is. Sunday
evening the women ot the church pre
pared a dainty supper for a hundred
soldier boys who had been invited to
spend the evening at the church. Six
o'clock came, no soldiers. Six-thirty
came and ten had arrived The ta
bles were all set and looked very
inviting with luie plates of dainty
sandwiches, bowls of potato salad,
pickles, jelly and candy, but the
guests, where were they?
A number of young girls looking
their prettiest were on hand, while
the women of the church, some of
whom had worked a good part of
the afternoon to prepare for the
hungry soldiers, stood about and
looked anxious. One of the workers
was prepared tor such an emergency,
for she had brought her knittins and
she worked away unconcernedly while : tne crowd tins week-end.

After some telephoning it was
learned that the soldiers had left the
fort, but that their whereabouts were
unknown. It began to be feared that
the entrancing lights of some movie
palace had proved too big a tempta

But someone had a bright lova;
They telephoned the Khaki club and
thirty-five stalwart men promised to
be on hand in ten minutes. They
were as good as their word and as
they marched in the gloom lifted, the
girls began to smile and all was well.
It was noticed at the table that a
large majority had very poor appe
tites. What was wrong.' The food
was, without a doubt, excellent. The
coffee was piping hot and the frost

of them were questioned and what

The party was a rousing success,
however, after it got well started and

Red Cross Workers Needed.
Mrs. A. L. Reed sends out an urgent
call for more workers that the Omaha
rhapter of the Red Cross may meet
its quota of the 1,000,000 surgieaf
dressings asked for t be sent to
France by the first: of the year.
Christmas shopping is claiming the
attention of so many Omaha women
that the Red Cross work in this
branch is being neglected in a meas
ure. Surely the able and p.triotic
women who have worked so faithful
ly for the Red Cross in all thes;
months will not desert now when
our soldiers are in such dire need of
thse surgical dressings. All the
women who can are urged to work
mornings and to come to room 209 in
the Baird building. Do not hesitate
because you do not understand the
work, for trained instructors will
teach vou; so please, pack your Red
Cross apron in your knitting bag and
respond to this call.

Silk vests, during these days of
high cost of living, are luxuries with
a great many women. They do not
feel that they can afford them and
yet what woman does not "love"
"those nice silken, clinging garments?
These vests can be purchased from a
dollar and something up and will
never find their way to the far cor
ner ot a trunk where useless gifts
make new acquaintances each Christ

Silk hose, too, are rapidly clamor

every woman just "adores" silk hose.
