Although many Omaha women in
tend to brave the rigors of a Ne
braska winter in order to attend to
Red Cross and war relief duties this
year, still the sandy beaches of Flor
ida and the green golf links of Cali
fornia are luring many Omahans
away. Every day they are turning
their faces south and westward,
many of them to remain until spring.
Mr. and Mrs. John S. Brady will
spend the remainder of the winter

California is very popular with
OnAhans and there is always a large
colony of them at the different large
beach hotels. Mrs. W. N. Chambers
and little "Billie" are there and Mrs.
Fred Hamilton and her sister, Mrs.
George Campbell, will leave shortly
for Coronado Beach to be gone some
months. Reports of "90 in the shade"
in January in Los Angeles and Pase
dena sound very alluring these below
zero days, and I am sure it is only
the lack of a long green ticket that
keeps many of us at home.
Mr. and Mrs. W. I. Kierstead, Mrs.
Rome Miller, Mrs. W. A. Waggener
and her small daughter left Sunday
to find out for themselves if these
reports are true and from what they
said before leaving they will continue
the investigation the rest of the win
ter. Texas claims quite a number of
Omaha people each year. San An
tonio has been especially popular in
years past before the exodus to
California became so great. Mr. and
Mrs. John A. McShane have selected
P Beaumont as their winter resort this
year, and there will probably be a
number more Texas travelers before
Many country homes have been
kept open until very late this year,
but the brave suburbanites who
stayed until Christmas have nearly
all come to town by this time.
"Aloha," the home of the A. L. Reeds,
has been abandoned and the Reed
family is now at the home of Mrs.

2-3 cake dry yeast.
1 tablespoon sugar.

.1 cup lukewarm water, milk, or
equal parts of both.
All measurements are level full.
Break the peanuts lightly into small
pieces and mix thoroughly with 1 cup
of flour. Soak the yeast in one-half
cup of lukevarm water for one hour.
Use this in making a sponge with two
cups of sifted flour and the required
amount of salt. In the morning, or
when this sponge is light, stir it until
smooth, add the sugar, and finally the
well-blended mixture of 1 cup of flour
and one-fourth pound of crushed,

Has Been Promoted
At Camp Dodgt
Winfield 0. Shrum, who received
his commission as second lieutenant
at the first training camp at Fort
Snelling, was promoted to first lieu

parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Shrum.
Do you want to "do something"' for
the food supply meat and eggs
even if only in a small way? Keep
some hens. Not a new idea, of course,
but until now it never was quite so
necessary or mandatory to grasp
every food-making opportunity. Try
it in the back yard, beginning wisely
on a small scale say 10 hens.
By keeping a back-yard poultry
flock the family would not only help
in reducing living costs, but would
have eggs of a quality and freshness
which are often difficult to obtain.

to accompany her to .church and later ee
Ina; her home, B being a married man. Is
C doing right to condemn A when A and U
only see each other on Sunday mornings.
B knew A before he was married.
There doesn't seem to be any particular
harm In this situation, unless A own con
science tells hr that she is using her church
to masque hi-r flirtations. Just why does
the man's wife not accompany him? Is he
a sincere worshipper or I he making a de

FOUR thousand workers
are employed and three
hundred and eighty-three
yards maintained by the Pull
man Company throughout the
country for the cleaning of cars.
At the end of every trip all
seats and cushions are unlim
bered, and every cranny is
vacuum cleaned. Mattresses,
blankets and pillows are hung
in the open air and sunlight.
Water coolers are sterilized
with steam; the washrooms are
cleansed- with disinfectant.
At frequent intervals carpets
are removed and renovated
and the monolithic floor thor-
oughly scrubbed; thq walls and
ceilings are washed with soap
and water. The polished steel
interior of a Pullman is easily
kept clean, and cannot shelter
germs. Thorough fumigation
is given every car regularly.
The laundering of bed linen
and blankets is done according
to the most exacting standards;
the smallest permanent stain
or scorching causes them to be
discarded. Mattresses, pill ows
and all upholstery are frequent
ly emptied and renovated.
There is probably no public
Elace where health and clean

ed than in the Pullman car.

What War Savings Stamps Are
A War Savings Stamp is a "baby bond" of the United States Govern
ment. It is made in the form of a small sticker or stamp.
You can buy a War Savings Stamp this month for $4.12. If you want to
keep it until January 1, 1923, the government will buy it back of you
and pay you $5.00 for it. . .
The 88 cents profits you on the transaction represents the interest the
Government pays for the use of your $4.12 at the rate of 4 com
pounded every three months. This means that your money actually
earns nearly 4'2 each year.
If you do not want to keep the stamp until January 1, 1923, you can
get the cash for it, plus whatever interest it has earned, by simply giv
ing written notice to the postmaster at any money-order postoffice that
you desire the money. There is no red-tape, no difficulty about it.
The money derived by the Government from the sale of War Savings
Stamps is spent in this country for manufacturing the millions of things
required by the army and navy to win the war. It helps buy rifles and
clothing and food, ammunition and air-planes for the boys in France.
The Government can raise all the money it needs by selling bonds to
rich men. But it wants YOU to have a part in this war. Therefore, it
goes to the great trouble and detail of issuing "baby bonds" like these ,
War Savings Stamps so that every one, no matter how situated, can
feel that he or she is actually helping to win the war.
Then, too, the Government wants you to save your money and sooner
or later thus learn the way to prosperity. War Savings Stamps will
teach you to save. You can buy one a month or four or ten a month
whatever you wish.
But, beyond all that, buy War Savings Stamps and you not only learn
to save and get paid for doing so, but you show the boys in France that
you are standing behind them here at home doing all you can to help
them in their terrible duty.
You can order your first War Savings Stamp TODAY. Just tell your
employer how many you want and he'll get them for you. Or call up the
DOUGLAS COUNTY WAR SAVINGS COMMITTEE, 1612 Farnam
Street, Douglas 1917, and we'll deliver it.
