Why Tax Skaters?
THERE are some things that
the government has an un
doubted right to tax things,
snch as whisky and automobiles and
$6 opera seats, that it should have
taxed, heavily, long ago. But we are
wondering if they ever will tax skat
ing. It costs not a cent to enjoy this
sport in God's great out-of-doors, and
no Belgian refugee or French orphan
will be deprived of a meal because we
Indulge in an afternoon's skate.
Hence, an added pleasure is expe
rienced because we can disport our
selves on the ice with a clear con
science. Isn't there just a twinge of
remorse often when we put down sev
eral dol'ars to watch a glittery musi
cal comedy for a few hours? But wi
can skate and be patriotic in ever
sense of the word.
The cold weather has wreaked ven
geance upon many a sinner; it has
wrought woe, no doubt, upon many a
saint, lhe coal famine, pneumonia
and. kindred evils that have fallen
upon the just and the unjust are but'
a few of Jack Frost's machinations;
but even this chilly and baleful visi
tor brings his blessings. In other
words, the one saving grace in Jack's
character seems to lie in the faqt that
he makes' outdoor skating possible.
Skating is the finest exercise in the
world. It is better than dancing, for
example, because you do it not in an
over-heated, over-illuminated, over
decorated ball room, but, if you do it
right, in the openest kind of open air.
We are not speaking of the indoor
rink, mind you. You might as -well
skate up and down your own apart
ment hallway as to skate in one of
those hothouse makeshifts. But out
in the open, under the sun or the
stars, as the case may be, what fur-
ther joy could the most blase person
But, most important of all, what a
rendezvous is a skating rink, what a
trysting placet A tennis court or a
summer hotel veranda has "nothing
on" t skating rink in winter. If you
don't believe it, just drop out to the
Country club some sparkly Sunday
afternoon and see all the rosy
cheeked, fur-collared society maids
cutting figure eights and stars with
Lieutenant This and Private That and
even Civilian the Other. The men
are not hampered by stiff collars nor
are the girls hindered by lacy frocks
and corsage bouquets, for they wear
their warmest coats and their stoutest
shoes. There is a spirit of comrade
ship and geniality in the air, too, that
you will find nowhere else.
The charming skaters you will see
on the smooth surface of the Country
club rink are Miss Virginia Offutt,
Miss Esther Wilhelm, Miss Margar
etha Grimmel, Miss Sybil Nelson,
Miss Janet Hall, and then I haven't
mentioned the matrons who are such
proficient skaters, Mrs. Frank Jud
son, Mrs. A. V. Kinsler,. Mrs. Lau
rence Brinker, and numberless oth
ers, but you must go out and see for

have endeavored to secure Mr. Cram
for t talk before their members, but
he will speak only for the Fine Arts

of the American Institute of Archi
tects, has designed so many college
buildings that the college clubs are
especially desirous of hearing him
talk.' .. .

ber of Pavlowa's company, has been

Kroner hurried home for a brief visit
with her mother. There are but three
American girls in the company, the
rest ot the dancers being English,
French and Russian, so that they will
be unable to see their homes until
after the war. The itinerary of the
company has included Chile, Peru,
Brazil and many other South Amer
can points and pretty little Miss Kro
ner has many interesting tales to tell
ot her three years experience.
"Madame Pavlowa is a wonderful
person," said Mis- Kroner. "She was
so afraid we would not come back to
her that we had t promise faithfully
to return before we left her." Ma
dame Pavlowa and her husband are
now at San' Juan and they will join
the company later. The plans for
next year will depend on the war. If
the war is over at that time Spain,
France, England and other European
countries will be visited by Madame
Pavlowa and her company of dancers.
Miss Kroner is well known in
Omaha, as she made an enviable rep
utation for herself as a dancer here be
fore she went on the stage. Miss Kro
ner was the winner of the Castle cup
when Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle
held a -dancing contest in Omaha.
Later she joined the original "Miss

A Bright Future.
Fresh I expect to have
Senior Yes, especially after you
By Adelaide Kannerly
Oh, the world is growing Westward
(While both time and tide move fast)
There's a breaking down of breastwork
In the overcrowded East
Hearts, too, are beating Westward
In a likewise rapid course,
Where men's soul are turning skyward,
Prompted by the Cosmic force.
West where man to man they'll meet you,
Where ancestral trees are dead;
Where the bright smile always greets you
And there's sunshine overhead.
West, where God planned life worth living;
Where man's word is good as gold
Where there's pleasure in love's giving,
And man's honor's seldom sold.
Where Eternity has schemed things,
And you know it at a glance.
The breath of every season
Brings new longings to advance. .
Not alone by worldly measures;
Not by dollars, cows and sheep,
But in spiritual treasures,
Winning love that's true and deep.
West, where Karmic laws are truer
Than the man-made jumbled code;
Where old "skeletons" are fewer 1
And life's not lived a la mode.
West, where the buds of our Fifth Race
Shall bloom to beautiful flowers
And form for the coming Sixth Race
More perfect celestial bowers.
Out West there shall be uncovered
The link to complete a chain
Of love to unite all nations, -
For life on a higher plane.
The East and the West shall be one then;
Tis there that the "twain shall meet"
Way out on the Western border,
At "God's Great Judgment Seat"

Advice to Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Be Kind to Her.
Dear Miss Fairfax: A few mnnthi ago
I married a man who la very much attached
to hi mother. She Is living with us; but
our home la not aa peaceful aa I would
like, for we are very Jealous of each other.
We had a few worda lately, and aha told
me I could do aa I pleaaed, but ahe would
atay with her son. I am not happy and
have often thought of leaving them, but my
people object to that. I try to be agreeable,
but it hurts me to see that ahe always has
the first place in my huaband's thoughts,
and she la so jealous that ahe hates to see
him kiss me, so that he never fondles me
any more when ahe la present. Could you
please advise me? She has other children
with whom she could stay, but she doesn't
get along with them and loves my husband
most A. P. S.
So your husband's widowed mother loves
him best of anyone on earth! Now, my
dear, are you going to be so selfish that
you will try to take from an old woman
the love that means more to her than any
thing else on earth? Why not try loving
her a little bit yourself? Why not actually
set yourself an interesting problem: How
am I going to turn "mother's" dislike to
affoctlon? How am I going to make our
three-cornered household a elrcle without
any ugly sharp points? Ton are young.
Tou can afford to be generous. After all,
mother was first in her boy's affection until
you came Into his life. Isn't It natural that
she should be jealous? I am sorry that you
two couldn't have enjoyed your little home
without the Intrusion of anyone else. "In
trusion" don't, you suppose mother ireallsea
her position and Is hurt by It? Be gen
erous, my dear child, for you and you alone
can aave the happiness of three people. If
you are big and fine, here Is your chance to
qake a splendid thing of your life.
Pear Miss Fairfax: I am It. Visiting me
Just at present is a girl two years my sen
ior, a very pretty blonde. Now, I am In
love with a most attractive young man. I
love him dearly, but I am unable to tell
whether he comes to see me or my friend.
My friend does not care for him, but there
are times when he aeems , all attentive to
her and indifferent to me. I am nearly
heartbroken! Will it be proper for me to
tell my sweetheart my friend does not care
for him? TROUBLED.
This letter answers, the one above. It;
ought to teach all jealous girls a lesson. It
may give boys new ideas of tact and kind
ness! I am It. of steady habits and have a
good Job. I do not drink or smoke and aave
half of my salary. I am in love with a
young girl about IS and have gone about
with her steadily for about six months. Re
cently she has had friend visiting her who
Is a very attractive blonde about my age.
Whenaver I go to see my friend this blonde
sticks around and I have to carry on a
conversation with the two of them. I am
rather backward aa a conversationalist and
find this hard to do. I am afraid my friend
does not care as much for me as she did
before her friend came to visit her. I think
she thinks I am in love with her friend, but
I am not. I am simply .trying to treat her
nicely, as she Is a friend ot my sweetheart's.
I don't know what to do In a case like this.
If I don't pay attention to my friend's
friend the may influence my sweetheart
against me. J. I. F.
TODAY'S BEAUTY HELP
We find that you can bring out the
beauty of your hair to its very best
advantage by washing it with Can
throx. It makes a very simple, in
expensive shampoo, which cleanses
the hair and scalD thoroughly of all
the dandruff, dirt and excess oil, leav
ing a wonderfully clean, wholesome
feeling. After its use, you will find
that the hair dries quickly and even
ly, is never streaked in appearance
and ist always bright, soft and fluffy;
so fluffy, in fact that it looks more
abundant than it is, and so soft that
arranging it becomes a pleasure. Just
use a teaspoonful of Canthrox, which
you can get from any good druggist,
dissolve it in a cup of hot water;
this makes a full cup of shampoo
liquid, enough so it is easy to apply
it to all the hair instead of just the
top of the head. Advertisement.
