Miss Eleanor Austin is posed in the costume of a little

the earnestness with which society girls have taken up se
rious lines of work upon the outbreak of the war. Miss Aus

queen, is doing dietetical work at the Presbyterian hospital
and is giving lectures on this study, which she pursued in an

KUM pads" was the house-
ioId word, next to Red
ross," last week in the
majority of loval Omaha
households. Oakum pads, as The Bee
explained once before, are hempy ma
terial, strongly saturated with a dis
infectant, which are filled into gauze
pads. These are placed on open
wounds of soldiers.
Seventeen thousand of them was an
emergency order made upon Mrs. O.
C. Redick recently, so a small army of
additional women Red Cross workers
was recruited to fill the order.
Miss Gertrude Young, who has
charge of All Saints' church group of
women who arc helping to make the
oakum pads, was riding on the Far
nam street line with abox of oakum
to be converted into the pads.
A woman sitting near her eyed the
box with interest for awhile, theji, ex
cusing herself, took a scat next to
Miss Young and asked:
"WTould you mind telling me where
you take your hair to be made up? I
have a lot of combings I would like
to make into a switch, but I am a
stranger in town and do not know
where to go."
So much for the looks of the oakum.
Mrs. Franklin A. Shotwell tells a good
story i.bout the smell of it.
"It smells just like mange cure to
me," said Mrs. Shotwell. "Some time
ago I used some of the mange cure on
my cat, much to her dislike. One day
when I came home from the Baird
building, where we were making
oakum, pads, my cat refused to come
near me. I called and called her but
she flew upstairs and hid under the
bed. I could not account for it, but
concluded it was because she smelted
the oakum on my clothes and mistook
it for the mange cure."

Some very modot women say "to keep stray locks in
place." And, indeed, some yoilc arc doing; that very thing. But,
ala,'?, how about the all-over, llowmg Kind, or the harem veil or
the bird cage veil!
No more conventional patterns in the smart manufacturer'
work room. They are all tdd, stray, cubist and whatnots. U
you have a big vild rose or Strawberry or bug (in your veil) on
one cheek and trailing vinesbug legs or wisps running hither
thither without system, like the streets of Atlanta, then yco are
following the dictates of fashion.
Large square, or round, veils with dots and designs are
thrown over "picture shapes" and small toques alike and they
are to flow and ripple and blow with the wind.
A great many of these newest creations are of chantilly
lace. They are not contined to the solid blacks and whites, but
come in taupes, blues in fact most any color desired. '
The harem veil has been "in" for some time, but there are,
as yet, no signs of it "going out." This veil is worn' with a
small, rather military hats, drawn across the face just below
the eyes and fastened to the back of the hat. They fall rather
loosely trom the nose down, exactly like the harenvveils of the

Hats and Hair.
The fur-crowned hat is being worn generally, sometimes
with a brim of satin or velvet, sometimes as a toque with just
a roll of velvet or a band oC brocade or cloth of silver or gold.
With the exception ot the pyramid-shaped crown, the high.
The mother of the pretty little pro
moter of the ball for the orphans
was justly indignant.
"My daughter has never been an
orphan, because I'm her mother," she
telephoned local newspapers.
C. S. Connor no longer feels him
self proposessing or Chestertieldish
since Friday night. And it is all
due to the fact that the Orpheum
management will not allow cars
parked in front of the building.
Mr. Connor let his party out at the
entrance of the theater and drove
down the block in search of a park
ing place. As members of his family
started toward the building the door

Not So Much Rouge.
Women with dark hair and a quite white mesh in front
make the most of the contrast, and arrange their complexions
accordingly. Patches are worn by some, powder by all, rouge
by a good many; but the girls in good society make up less
than they did.
Women are still as careful as ever about their hands. But
feet are fearfully and wonderfully shod in dainty boots with
high heels and light cloth tops.
The popularity of fur increases as the cold weather comes,
and muffs are carried more generally. The new ones are very
small, barrel-shaped in some cases, oblong in others A small
bag or purse is carried with a muff, either on the wrist or in the
hand. The voluminous bag has quite gone out, and so has the
large sized leather one. Either a little silk thing, or a shiny
leather purse on a short chain or strap, is worn for every day
matters; for the theater, bead bags, gold, silver, or platinum,
but nothing obtrusive, , : ;
