MISS TODD SAYS
OMAHA RED CROSS
Young Woman Charges She
Was Refused Wool to Knit
Because She Was "Work
That she was refused woo! to knit
because she was a working girl is the
charge Miss Verna Todd, secretary to
Manager Powell of the Brandeis
buildings, makes against Omaha Red
Miss Todd said she applied for wool
in Red Cross headquarters in the
"I was asked many personal and
pertinent questions, none of which
I resented. The woman in charge was
about to give me the wool, when she
asked me to return the completed
garment by a certain date. I told her
I could not, as I was employed during
Slow in Returning.
"Oh, you are a working girl. Then I
cannot give you any wool. Wc have
decided not to give any more wool
to working girls because they do not
return the wool on time," the woman
is said to have replied.
Mrs. C. B. Cummings, a Chicago
Red Cross worker, who is visiting her
mother, Mrs. E. H. Bonce, told the
story to The Bee.
"The Red Cross should not tolerate
any social distinctions. Miss Todd has
a brother of only 19 who is enlisted
in the aviation school at Berkeley,
Cal., and she is an expert knitter.
There is no reason why she should
not have been permitted to have the
wool," said Mrs. Cummings.
Should Use Diplomacy.
"If there was a scarcity of yarn,
Miss Todd should have been told so
in a diplomatic manner," she said.
'"Her feelings were outraged by the
Mrs. A. W. Jefferis, chairman of
knitting for Omaha Red Cross chap
ter, denies that any disfinction is
being made against working girls in
the distribution of wool.
"The wool was probably refused
because Miss Todd could not bring
back the completed garment before
the next shipment was to be made,
and on account of the shortage of
yarn, it is wisest to give the wool to
women who can finish the articles in
the shortest possible space of time,"
"These are war times and the needs
are urgent. We cannot afford to let
out wool for long periods to women
who only do 'pick-up' work at odd
moments. We have had to institute
a reasonable time limit for the re
turn of garments because women have
taken six weeks to do a pair of wrist
lets, and think they are doing their
bit, when another woman could do
it almost in one sitting. Our swiftest
knitters make a sweater in three
Mrs Jefferis said there was a very
fine grade of wool which" was only
being given out to women wno are
personally known to the Red Cross
workers. "It is so expensive we can't
afford to have it mutilated. As it is,
it costs the Red Cross $4.50 whole
sale for each sweater."
Mrs. Warren Blackwell, who was
In charge of the work the day Miss
Todd is said to have applied, has no
recollection of her application.
"I can only explain that we have
had to be very careful with the last
small consignment of yarn we re
ceived because it was so precious and
hard to knit with, so we could only
give it out to expert knitters whom
v.c knew would return it on time,"
said Mrs. Blackwell. "The first $12.
000 worth of yarn we received was
distributed to every knitter who ap
plied. Some of the women returned
garments beautifully knitted, others
were poor and some we could not use
at all, which made a great waste of
yarn. That's why I gave out the yarn
very carefully. We are all out of yarn
now and cannot supply even our best

Flomar Hotel Burned
For the first time in the history of
the Omaha fire department a medal
was awarded a fireman, Charles Ger

shown during the late Flomar hotel

of the hotel and presented by First

me much pleasure to be able to pre
sent this medal to our brave brother.
I can not express with words the
pride I feel in claiming such a mem

Patriotic Wifey Is Reason
Jack Miller Is in Marines
Jack Miller's patriotism, which leads
him to pass up possible management
of the St. Louis Cardinals, is d. e
largely to the promptings of his wife
and he admits it. Mrs. Miller went
with Jack to the recruiting office
when he enlisted in the marines.
Previously she would not let him
claim exemption on her account and
now that he has gone to war she has
enlisted in the Red Cross as a nurse
and may soon go to France. How
could a man be a slacker, if he would,
with such a wife as that?
