Teaching True Patriotism.
. Among, the varied manifestations of , life as
affected by war conditions none'is more marked
or more common than .the impulse to patriotic
endeavor. Only a very few. people are wholly
lacking in devotion to the great-things for which
our country stands, and these few will be found
on cldse inquiry to be somentally or morally
warped as to be incapable of genuine. devotion to
any cause. The great mass of our people is ' leav
ened with a true 'love for country arfdyfor its in
stitutions as "they understand 'hem. That is the
beginning (of whatever 'f ' trouble tljat ,is met
in our "progress. Minds differ ' and habits of
thought are as distinctive'as'habfts'of body. To
fuse the variant and sometimes vagrant ideas of
patriofic'duty.inito one great snati6rtal will to win
. i. task . as "imperative as to prepare the atmjf
for the actual lighting. ': - "t ' ;
President Wilson has recognized this need and
his addresses' on the subject of he war are pe'r
mpatedwith: the thought "that the national con
sciousness must be thoroughly aroused. 'Ener
getic men and women ' have taTcen the presi
dent's example and have sought' with earnest zeal
to awaken Americans. Much', of this work has
been done in Omaha, and more is to be done.
The, occasion of .the birthday of Abraham Lin
coln is, to be made notable by a .great public as
semblage, at which pure patriotism will be
preached in ahe name -of Washington,! and of
Lincoln, and of all America.' The burden of the
message should be' directed to each Individual,
for on him alone rests the responsibility. As we
unite in thought and action, . so do. we improve
our prospects in war as well as in peace.
Teachers everywhere should keep this upper
most. It is no loger self, but service. Inserv
ing our country we are serving ourselves, and
humanity, not for the present' alone,-tut for the
future. No party exists in this war, no class
and no division. It is the war 'of the people, for
the people and by the people, and.only so will it
be won. The will to win must not only be estab
lished, but it must also be completely crystallized
and translated into action. , , , "
"Daylight Saving" for Nebraskans. ' '
' The proposed law intended to bring to pass
so-called "daylight saving" is expected to become
operative shortly and have the effect of reducing
hours of uf of artificial light.' In Omaha, and
cities similarly situated as to latitude, the law
will have little or.no appreciable effect on the
habits of the .people, for only a few minutes dif
ference exists between "clock" time and ."true"
time. The sun is about 20 minutes slow at this
season of the year 'and six months from now will
be about that, much fast. If, however, all social
as well as industrial operations are to be speeded
up correspondingly the new rule will accomplish
one thing. .It will start folks to work an hour
earlier,in the morning and let them off that much
sooner in , the. afternoon. It is hardly calculated
that ;the hour will be added at . each, end of 'the
day, for nothing in the' situation "warrants . the
assumption that we contemplate returning to the
ways-of bur fathers, who rose with the sun and
went to bed with him. , The change may liave the
urtexpected. result of adding'to-the pleasure of
some lives hereabouts by giving a chance to en
joy the glories of sunrise to a lot of people who
now only know 'the beauties of sunset If any
thmg'in nature can rival the close of a flay" in
Nebraska it is the beginning of a new day, Daftii
and evening have each a peculiar 'chirm that ap
peals' Jo even ; the ..unimaginative, while 5 to the
poetic or artistic they offer delights to be found
nowhere else. If "daylight saving" will get folks
out of bed earlier ,jn the morning and "send
them there sooner at nigh't it, will be doing 'some
good. - '. ' . '' "t ' ' :
Dancing as a Pastime. - r 1'
. rt Correspondents 'have '"vigorously,' debated the
question as to whetherdancing,' should or. should
nbt;be suppressed, and without finality;it seems.
At. present, 'those' who support the; pastime . as
harmless !a, itself,, and innocuous 'under" proper
control, have rather tlie best of it. Dpncing is a
Companion of music, a natural effect of the at
tempt .to express emotion, spiritual or : physical
exaltation finding outlet in song' or tune, and this
fo 'turn 'exciting the. impulse, to rhythmic accom
paniment by the body." Obser.vef s wonder at the
song bird; carried, away , by the exuberance of its
notes,' unable to-stay in one "position .'or jplace,
but dancing,1 hopping, 'flitting from twig to; twig,
its movements more pronounced as -its song increases'-
in; volume and strength. ' fhey should
understand that the bird is obeying a physical
laV of sound-production. The effect' not only .of
the sound .itself, but of .the effort "to prbduce the
sound is to engender motion - throughout the
locomotor muscles of vthe body that' must be re
sponded' to.' ' In' the speaker,; these fujd vent'in
gestures; in Swaying of the body, in movement to
and fro on the floor or platform. In' the singer,
the phenomenon is variously exhibited, but never
is entirely suppressed. , 1 Therefore, the 'most nat
ural result of joyous song is equally joyous dance.
And so we find man dancing'thVough all the ages,
in solemn ceremonial, in sportive festival, in
merriment or in sorrow, Hnyofeing a blessing or
begging; a boon, observing a. fast or celebrating a
feast, dancing'to express his-mood,, and giving it
over only when cast ddwn by'utter despair. The
harmi if harm' there be, is not in' the dance, but
the 'dancer.' ' '' . "' J
Marriage; and the Working Woman
Wage-Earning Independence Threatens to Can Dan Cupid
By Frederic J. Haskin.
. Washington, -Feb. - 6. .Woman's -invasion
of industry bids fair to put a crimp in the
marriage1 lists, .according tos some informa
tion which has recently, been gathered py the
Department of Labor. v
f- It-has long been an accepted fact about
.women as workers that their average work
ing life is only five years, and seldom ex
ceeds seven. ' This working period, was con
sidered to be rnerey-an , interlude, between
.school and marriage." ; l, '
These late investigations have, put a-de-cidely
newface onjthe matter. - Whether it
is because women are becoming mpre fond of
freedom or because the rewards'of industry
are for them becoming higher, or-becaose of
the rising price of keeping house or the
?;rowing reluctance, of the male to marry, the
act remains that 'many, women are. ..found
who have had 10 or more ytafs of industrial
experience and still show no tendency to
wed. Then, too, that versatile woman who
both marries and holds. her job is on the in
crease.' It is to be hoped that she, rather
than the bachelor working woman, is the
coming type. But. the significant thing is
that the majority of women now entering
industry are entering to stay. , ' ' .
Since the war. women have been pouring
into industries that formerly employed only
men; the. number of women in industry has
increased by 1,000,000 during the last year.
Women' are running elevators, clerking in
drug and grocery stores, carrying telegrams,
operating wireless instruments, driving
trucks, making munitions, and handling
freight in railroad yards. All these things
they art performing efficiently, albeit so
complacently, that people are already begin
ning to consider the industrial status of
women after the war. ' ,
As an important and permanent figure in
our industrial life, she requires special study.
What particular lines of work attract wom
en? What sort of work are they best fitted
for? How do working women live; what do
they earn.' and how do they spend their
money? These questions, are . answered m
parroy a recent study of wage-earning wom
en "made in the District of Columbia. ,
The District of Cblumbia is not, of course,
a representative American community. A
large percentage of. its inhabitants,. both men J
ana-women, are employed Dy tne govern
ment. -It has few manufacturing industries,
with the exception of small plants, such as
bakeries, ice factories, laundries, and box
making, tailoring and printing establish
ments. Nevertheless, it presents some inter
The cases of 600 women were embraced
in this investigation.' They consisted of gov
ernment clerks, office employes,, saleswom
en telephone operators, factory workers,
waitresses and laundry workers. These were
the seven occupations attracting the greatest
number of women.)?
Of. the 600,' 542 were unmarried; 58 had
been married and ' were either widowed, di
vorced or separated at the time of the in
vestigation, and 15 of : these married workers
had . children to support. The age of hc
women under consideration ranged from 16
to '30, although several were above 30. There
was one woman 75 'years old and ycripple,d
with rheumatism who was maintaining her
economic independence .by -dressmaking.
About 5 per cent of the wpifen' had. been
wage earners for1 20 years -br more. !
- The majority about-6 per cent of the
total number were receiving .less than $500
a year, or approximately $10 a week. Indeed,
as many as 46 per cent were making only
$400 or under,-while only 35" women out of
the 600 were making as much as $16 a week.
As might be expected, most of these wom
en workers lived at home. Out of 133 earn
ing less than' $300 a year, for instance. 100
lived-at home; of the rest 15 lived in private
families; 13 lived in" rented rooms and did
light very light housekeeping, 'while five
lived in homes for working girls.
'. ..The amount of home assistance received
by women in industry is an extremely im
portant phase of the whole feminine indus
trial question. For with such assistance a
woman is able to offer her services in the
labor, market at a much lower wage than the
woman entirely dependent upon her own
earnings for support. A girl who, is sup
ported by her parents can afford t take a
job at $4 a week, which will pay for her
cosmetics and sodas, but no woman can be
decently self supporting on such a wage.
For many years popular opinion has held
that a woman who lives at home should be
willing aitd grateful to work for a small
wage an economic fallacy that is now the
greatest menace' to industrial women. Un
der its protecting influence many charlatan
concerns have lived and flourished, reared
on the cheap labor of girls who were support
ed by home subsidies. Now people are begin
ning to realize that if a woman is worth hir
ing at all, she should be paid a self supporting
wage regardless of where she lives. If she
is worth $10 a week, then she should demand
and get $10 a week for her labor, even if she
happens to be an heiress to millions.
In the District of Columbia investigation,
also; it was shown that many young women
were handicapped by home assistance. That
is, they gave up opportunities to secure bet
ter positions and larger salaries to remain at
home on a small wage because they believed
that their' services or companionship Were
needed. Women wage earners never do
achieve the emancipation from home re
sponsibilities that men do, it appears. Many
women who work eight hours in business of
fices, stores and factories, it has been shown.
go home 'to' another two or three hours of
housework. Thus it was recently discovered
by; a city' social worker that a girl of 18 who
worked for nine and a half hours in a lat-ge
department store then went home and cooked
dinner for her father and three brothers,
after which .she washed both the breakfast
and' dinner dishes and put the rest of the
house in order.
' This girl was making such , a low wage
that she could not have supported herself
anywhere .but at home. And this is often
what the home subsidy really is a payment
for; equally arduous but less independent la
bor than that which the girl does outside
the 1 homel . Since the war the situation of
women in . industry has improved. Wages
have, risen,' new industrial opportunities have
opened up', and the girl who works for pin
mpney has found other outlets for her work-i
Ing. instinct, such as knitting and foreign re
lief work? A new valuation has been placed
on women's work. Many concerns are learn
ing to their own great astonishment that in
some . lines of work women may even excel

Pittsburgh's great and only cat
show met a tragic finish at the start
by colliding with Harry Garfield's
coal economy orders. Not enough
fuel to heat the ball could be had and
the parlor pets were bundled up and
taken home. More than any other
community, Pittsburgh regards Dr.
Garfield as a most unfeline cuss.

beauty of the hair, that dissolves and
antirely removes all dandruff, excess

makes it seem much heavier than it is.
