Miss Mills spent Thanksgiving with
her cousins, Commander Reed and
Mrs. Reed, who are now in Boston.
Mrs. Reed is a writer of navy articles
on the Pittsburgh Leader, and is an
intimate friend of Mr. and Mrs. Alex
ander P. Moore. "Mrs. Moore" may
not sound familiar,, but "Lillian Rus
sell" does,' and they are one and the
. same person. This famous tady makes
; $3,000 a year when on the stage and
her pin money is $1,500 a week, which
'drops into her purse from her pews-
paper articles. Mr. Moore, who is
the "& company" in the Russell cor
poration, is the owner of the "Pitts
burgh Leader." He has to pay for
his own wife's articles, as he buys
them tiom a syndicate. Mrs. Lil
lian Russell Moore is an active Red
Cross worker and she presented the
sailors on "The Salem," Commander
Reed's ship, with 400 comfort bags.
Each bag contained a knitted garment
made cither by the actress or some
member of her family. Beside the
comfort bags she gave the boys a vic
trola, records and numberless books,
also a pair of $500 binoculars greatly
needed on a scout cruiser.
The men on board "The Salem"

and they refused invitations to dinner

This fortunate girl was guest at a
formal dinner party given on the ship.
The allied flags were used as a deco
ration for salon and they made a
striking setting for the uniforms of
the officers and lovely evening gowns
of the women.
At a suffrage banquet which Miss
Mills and a number of her college
friends attended, Miss Jeannette Ran
kin was the speaker of the evening.
The Omaha girl commented on the
number of the women who smoked
after the meal. There were only a
few, Miss Rankin among them, who
did not have a cigaret after dinner,

Sitting dreamily in one of "Wat
tles' electrics" yesterday I overheard
a conversation. The older of the
two women, and by far the better
groomed, said to the frowzy one:
"I find that shirt waists are too
expensive to wear down-town every
day. They are all right for those
who can afford them, and nothing I
should like better than to be able to
wear a clean one every day, but I
have to wear a dress because, on the
whole, it is much less expensive and
always looks well."
"A dress is so apt to look dusty,"
complained the frowzy near-blond.
"Yes, if you don't brush it But I
find that it is less trouble to keep my
clothes brushed and pressed than it is
to keep fresh, light waists in good

Pollyanna has a great many friends; more than 5,000,-
000 people know her. '
Pollyanna is even more fascinating upon the stage
than between the book-covers. ' r
Pollyanna goes all the way from checked gingham to
chiffon from 12 to 17.
But "Pollyanna" is no preachment; it is a message of
hope, joy and optimism. ,
Pollyanna will walk into your heart without knocking.
Pollyanna says: "Just be glad that's the. game."
Go and see Pollyanna and get some of her philosophy
