courage of the French women during
these last three terrible years. .

suffered greatly. Her eyes have a
haunting sadness" about them and the
mouth has a pathetic droop. Mme.

most charming one. She has been re
ceived with great enthusiasm wherever
she has spoken and has made friends

Work is -becoming popular with misguided girls
who suffer from ennui and dream of work as a
diversion. : ; ' : : :
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
H OW -strange are the definitions given by some of our young society
' girls for workl 1
Harassed by inconsequential parties, they define work as some- .
thing routine because they do not realize the meaning of routine.
- Bored by posing as something they are not, they define work as ,
"interesting" for they are dying of ennui. , x
Haggard and weary of trapsing back and forth to winter resorts
and summer resorts, they define work as "fascinating" what wouldnt
they give to be fascinated ' . ,
Condemned by society for wishing to work, and sneered at by those
who really work, what chance have they unless they break the traces and
dare and do?
Why do those girls' want to work? asks the world..
And the Cosmic law answers: f'Because they are human and the spark
of humanity is stronger than all the froths of existence; its call its urge
for something real, its plea for each one to do her part, dnnot be
smothered. , '
They have tried all the frills of life and found no satisfaction wllr they
find more Jn work? Shall their 'craving be stilled longerthan the novelty
lasts? v ' '
Work is not recreation from foolish or tiresome pleasures.
Work is not the ice cream on the pie of life it is the pie itself.
'Nor is work the frosting on the cake, nor the sauce for the pudding".
Thereforeybuds and blossoms of threadbare society, be not deceived.
Work is serious. Work is that part of you, and evolution, which cannot
be given part-time consideration.
You express your potentialities in, the work you do. and the work you
do comes after the thoughts you think. So from the core of YOUR life
emerges YOUR greatness and YOUR smallness.
Unless there is a strong determination within to sacrifice, to fight the
battle through despite many obstacles and to win, have no association
with work. .
Work" tells the world what there is in you it determines whether you
are a failure or a success. ,

' Save the Tin Foil
A real war-time saving is that of
tin foil and collapsible tin tubes in
wide use for dentrifices, paints and
other materials. This is saving with
out false economy the regeneration
of mJterial which would Otherwise be
lost. All tin foil and empty tubes
should be made into a ball by the in
dividual or family. It does not take
long to accumulate a mass of this ma
terial of base ball size, and such a
ball will often yield two pounds and
upward of pure tin on melting. It is
estimated that the average family
throws away at least one pound -oi
tin annually, a national waste of 10..
000 tons. In ordinary times the Hif.
ficulty of gathering tin foil and like
discarded material does nnt i1..,-,r.
, - . v uvb ctvvajra
justify conservation, as new tin is
jess expensive tnan the work of col
lecting from millions of individuals.
In war tirrje, however, every pound of
im i urgently neeoea, regardless or
the cost of collection. Balls of tin foil
gathered bv the individual t,
turned over to local charities for sale
in bulk when sufficient has been ac
cumulated. Tin foil saving is very, "k
effective when organized; in hotels, i
tlubs and other places where cigars
and cigarets are sold, and where'
waste baskets yield large quantities
A Menu Exchange
As a means of putting good menu
ideas before the hotel trade of the
country, and especially making avail
able to them a wide range of dishes
and combinations on wheatless, meat
less and porkless days, the Interna
tional Stewards' association proposes
a menu exchange. By this plan a
hotel proprietor willing 'to participate
would contribute as many copies of
ljii own menus weekly as he wished
to receive himself from the same
number of different hotels locatSd
,throughouMhe country, sending them
to the exchange and receiving in' re
turn, once a week, an equal number of
menus, efforts being made to send
him those of the hotels in whose bills
of fare he would most likely be inter
ested. The plan is described in a re
cent issue of the International Stew
ards Association Bulletin, and hotel

change list may notify Milo E, West
