you heard of the new "camouflage",
You know how awfully cold the
poor jackies' throats look these win
try days in their decollete middy
blouses and square-cut sweaters! The
poor boy can't wear a string of pearls
as the girls do to keep them warm
and the mufflers look so "bungly."
Here comes in our little camouflage
sweater or dicky. The sailors, espe
cially, adore tfftm, for they just fit
into that chilly V and they look so
trim arrd neat.
These little sweaters are quite the
rage in Pasadena and one philan
thropic woman is buying $300 worth
of yarn monthly for the city's firemen,
whb are knitting for the shivering
champions of democracy.
I am looking eagerly at every knit
ter I see these days to determine
whether she is making one of these
baby sweaters, but as yet I have seen
none of them. I hope some of the
patriotic knitters of our city will try
them, for they say they are a pleasant
relief from helmets, socks and the

Sugar Famine a Blessing
From the standpoint of hygiene and
economy changes in diet represent a
positive gain, says the Popular Sci
ence Monthly. For instance, take
sugar a fc&d which yields more cal
ories per unit of cost than any other
food, but which,- on the other hand,
gives us nothing but energy. It con
tains no protein and no mineral value,
elements which are essential. So the
present sugar shortage is a blessing
m disguise, for we are obliged to sub
stitute in its place vegetables and
fruits, which are real body-building
foods. Had we made this simple sub
stitution many years ago we might
have been a sturdier race today.

Dr. Anna Howard Shaw Is
Strong for Schools and
Dr. Anna Shaw says that coal
shortage, war emergency and like
troubles should not be an excuse for
closing the schools. "An ignorant
and illiterate citizenship," she says,
"will be a greater menace to the coun
try than all the financial debt of the
war." There are parents glad of an
excuse to take children out of school
and get them into factories and she
thinks that this country should take
j warning by England, which saw, all
too late, where the taking of children
from school would lead them. Dr.
Shaw calls to the women of the na
tion, through the women's committee
of the National CounciKof Defense, of
which she is chairman, to "rise and
put an end to this menace at once."
Policewoman of New York
Was Too Strenuous in
Her Pursuit of Evil
The village trustees of the town of
Ossining, N. Y., did ot like the way in
which Policewoman Anna O'Shea
strenuously pursued evil doers, so
they discharged her. She gave uo the
emblems of her office to them and
was immediately appointed deputy
sheriff by Sheriff Wiesendanger, hav
ing been recommended by prominent
persons for the position. Mrs. F. A.
Vanderlip and other wealthy residents
of the place have fitted up "head
quarters' for her, and she will get
after illicit liquor sellers and those
who annoy young women in any way
as her particular line of work.
