for this or that chairman of some Red
Cross committee in the splendid work

go throught the "trenches" and get
acquainted with some of the unsung
heroes and heroines who labor equally
as hard in this work for humanity.

headquarters some evening just stroll
;n and you will be surprised to find
a large number-of Omaha's business
men taking the "heavy" parts in this
Red Cross drama. Nailing boxes, stety.

forte and the masculine helpers in
clude: George Redick, James Shedd,
O. C. Redick, James Silver, James
Wrath, John W. Redick, Charles
Metz, James Connelf, Herbert Con
nell and Louis Clarke. Many a night
these men work from 7 until midnight
and are at their desks bright and
early the next morhing with per
haps calloused fingers and tired.backs,
but nothing is said. ' "
There are numberless good women
who work faithfully arid long with, no
thought of praise. There as several
who work in the "laying out" room
taking the different parts already cut
out for the hospital garments and
putting the right pieces together to
be passed on to the next group of
workers to be completed. Some of

Simple Hair Dressing.
Are the Mary Pickford curls going

becca of Sunnybrook Farm braid?
We fear that the knell of the psyche

for all the actresses appearing on the
bill at the Orpheum this week wear
their hair demurely down their backs.
Cheery Winona Winter favors the
curls, for six or eight blonde ones

Bull girl, Miss Gwen Lewis, affects

JJJM THE BEST
Simple Pleasures Are the Most
To Be Sought by Thoughtful
Men and Women of Today
By ' BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
"Let's go to Harvey's. It's so gay
and jolly. There's a wonderful band
there that Iplays gorgeous jazz music
and you do see the most stunning
people. Who's for Harvey's?" asked
Mrs. Wittemore with animation and
anxious desire to be pleased as well
as to please her guests. .
- Marion - Jason looked up with a
youthful repetition of Mrs. Whitte
more's attitude and a little bit more!
"Is it rather gay at Harvey's? I want
to go somewhere awfully gay where
I'll see people I shouldn't."
"It's gay all right.' And it costs $2
apiece to get in. What's the use of
going there? If we like each other
well enough, why can't w have a
good time right where we are?"
It was Sibyl Harper who spoke.
Sib is a big, wholesome, honest young
woman who manages to say what she
thinks and still keep the regard of her
The Whittemores began to protest.
As host and hostess they aid not
quite like the suggestion ihat they
might calculate the $12 entrance fee
we would have to pay at Harvey's.
But Sib was not to be ruled down
not even when Mrs. Whittemore ex
plained that the servants vere out,
had gone to a dance and there wasn't
a thing in the house and she was per
ishing for a bit to eat and if we were
as hungary as she was, we'd feel that
she was just letting us famish if we
didn't get something right off. Sibyl
listened to all that and then high
handedly carried her -point.
"Let's send out to a delicatessen
for cold things and go in the kitchen
and make sandwiches and a rarebit
and coffee. We'd love it Mayn't we,
And Isabel Whittemore capitulated.
We had a wonderful time in the big
white tiled kichen a place to which
at least 10 out of the 12 people pres
ent were not in the habit of repair
ing. (Yes, I confess that I like kitch
ens and cooking and even dish wash
ing). For a group of pampered rich
people, a little party in the kitchen
is exciting because it is a change
from their routine at least, so they
explain it. But I think it is pleasing
because in, our souls we arc all sim-
pie. We coat our simplicity with all
sorts of artificial tastes arid interests.
We get in the habit of enjoying
complcated pleasures and those only.
We are ashamed to contend that a
chicken sandwich and a glass of or
angeade lire our idea of a pleasant re
freshment for the evening. We im
agine th.t not to order grape fruit
and crab meat Dewey and a cafe
parfait and a fancy drink marks us
put as unaccustomed to society 1
' When people are sure of them
selves they dare to be simple. The
stiff formality of "Is it proper?" does
not enter into the scheme of things
for well-bred people half as much as
it does for those who are ill-bred. To
be simple in your tastes, to be sim
ple in your friendliness, to enjoy sim
ple entertainments, simple foods, sim
ple friendships and all the vast, hon
est, unadorned, quiet beauty of things
that have not been complicated and
tangled up by the machinery of life
in a city is to be a real person.
I know men who are afraid to in
vite the girls they like out for an
evening's entertainment. Recently
one of them put it to me like this:
"How can I take Gertrude Carpen
ter out? How 'can I show her any
attention?. She wants to go to dinner
and then to a theater in third row
seats, for which 1 would have to pay
a big premium, out for a supper party
afterward and home in a taxi. Figure
thr cost at least $6 for the dinner
and $6 more for the theater seats and
enough for the supper and taxi to
bring my evening's bill up to the point
where it destroys a $20 bill. I can't
do it. Knowing girls is too expen
And Gertrude confides in me that
she loves the movies and likes get
ting her own things off the tray at
the cafteria, but that if the boys knew
that a tongue sandwich and a glass
of cineer ale in a cheao little restau
rant formed her idea of a good tiirte
they wouldn t think she was civil
ized! We're too "civilized" that's what's
the matter with us. We miss all the
run of the simple things which natu
rally appeal to us and spend money
and energy trying to enjoy the highly
cated "pleasures' which ddnt mean
half as much to us as tnendly com
panionship and simple amusements.
A very important meeting is called
for the heads of all the Red Cross
auxiliaries at the Young Women's
Christian association Thursday after
noon at 4 o'clock. It is very neces
sary that all the chairmen of the
auxiliaries attend this meeting.

I am pretty, refined, dreta well, lively,
but when I fet with a crowd I am lost. I
read up on current events, but aa soon aa I

Interesting to them, and I do not talk about
myself. I let blra do that, VEE.
Suppose, Instead of trying to attract a
crowd, yon try to win the friendship of one
or two worthwhile people. There Is an old
quotation which la a treat favorite of mine.
It reads: If you would bave a friend,
yon must first be one." Now, If you are
looking for someone to whom you can tell
your troubles and joys, you are probably
thinking ao much about forcing your per
sonality on the other peraon concerned that
you don't atop to realise her side of It a
desire to express her personality, too. Pick
out someone to like. Be gracious and
sweet to your person. Make him or her
feel your Interest and sympathy your un
selfish desire te please. Don't Introduce
the toplo on which you have read up, but
try to draw out the other peraon to ex
press his or her views. Everyone Is more
or less shy. "Everybody's lonely." Re
member that Other people are suffering
Just as you are, Try to help them over
their awkward places. Study them not
yourself. When you are In a erewd, don't
try to lad that orowd or Impress It by your
brilliancy, but find someone In It to ednilre.
Ke a sympathetlo audience. Slop trying to
attract. Admire others. Think of their
good points, not your own. If you do this
faithfully and religiously, )ou will find
friendship coming to you.
. Too Dramtic.
' Dear Wise Fairfax: Are there any nice
mon? That may sound like a rather blunt
question, but It Is a question which has
arisen In my mind after going with youn
men for about four years. I associate with
refined people and meet young men of vert
good families, whom I Invite to my home
and have my parents meet them. After see
ing them for a while I am Insulted. They
seem so ntoe, and I am so disappointed. ' I
conduct myself In a quiet manner, and
csnnot understand why It la Impossible to
enjoy a friendship of young men. Certainly
young girls who have lots of friends must
overlook a great deal, but I cannot just foi
the sske of a good time. I may add I am
not good looking, but people say I have
pretty eyes. Will you kindly answer uiv
question fcrd tell me just what Is the
trouble T DISAPPOINTED.
The trouble, I think, la with you your
self. Ot course there are "nice men"
plenty of them. In fact Why you so oftei
fancy yourself Insulted I do not know. Vi
you, flirt a bit try to lead me on, do your
best either In Innocence or mischief to
arouse emotions, and thea feel Insulted when
you are "misunderstood?" Tour questions
are so general that I cannot understan.1
them fully, but I fancy that you have rather
a hysterical, romantlo desire to dramatize ,
everything that happens to you and to feel
yourself the heroine of tittle adventures, if
you are natural, simple and friendly In your
attitude toward him, the average man meets
you with the same simple friendliness. '

two years. Two years ago, at a reception,
we met two young men, one of whom we

these men, who have enlisted and are noir
at Fort Wood. Of course, we' cannot are
much of them, and although we are hot
formally engaged, they wish us to marry be
fore they leave for France, and they Intend
to leave soon. Mow.. Miss Fairfax, we wImi
your advice as to wb.ther this would be the
right thing to do. Our parents do not ob
ject, but they also await your reply as to
the propriety of the affair. K. and B.
Propriety doe not enter Into the ca at
all. Since you have the consent ot your par
ents you have nothing to hlndor you or urge
you on except your own real feelings. Don't
enter on these wsr marriages as a little ad
venture. Don't let excitement end romance
urge you to a step whose seriousness you do
not recognise. But If you and our sweet
hearts care deeply and truly for each other.;
go ahead, and Ood bless you.

Carrying the Colors to Victory
THE "lines of communication" begin on the Pacific -Coast
and end on the battle fields of Europe.
So every freight train, laden with the product , of
farm or factory or coal and ores from the mines .
V or lumber from the forests is on the all important
business of war, quite as important as the munition
trains to the first line trenches and must have the
right of way.
The Chicago, Milwaukee &? St. Paul Railway Com
' - pany finds great pride in becoming thus in a complete .
sense a great military highwayt in now being able to
serve under the commander'in'chief in carrying the,
colors to victory.
Also this company finds great satisfaction in the service it
has been performing for the nation since the war began.
Great stores of food, of fuel, of manufactured products have
poured from the Pacific Northwest over this line and not
one ton of precious coal not one barrel of oil has been con
sumed in transporting them across the great mountain ranges
for the very forces of the mountains themselves have been
employed to perform this gigantic task electrically and every
day while the war goes on this wonderful electrification
achievement will be contributing its tremendous savings of
coal and oil, and the railroad equipment necessary to haul
them all so vital to the successful prosecution of the war.
Although curtailing travel luxuries and to some extent
readjusting schedules, this railway will continue to operate,
trains through to Chicago and to the Pacific North Coastiji
and the service will be characterized by the usual attention
to the comfort and convenience of its guests. . v . 1 .
