does not satisfy its creditors before
then. B. H. Dunham was appointed
master to sell the premises and exe

The concern has been operated by
a receiver, George P. Stebbins, for
several months. The suit was brought

Proposals Are Made.
Red Cross auxiliaries in all apart
ment houses is a measure to increase
me numDer ot women workers in
Omaha, advocated by Mrs. C. T.
Kountze, head of the woman's service
"There are at least SO large apart
ment houses in Omaha in which a
treat deal of work could be done if
the women would organize for the
purpose. If there are no competent
supervisors for surgical dressings
among them, they can make hospital
i garments, the need for which is just
as great," said Mrs. Kountze.
Won.en living in a group of apart
ment houses on Sherman avenue bor
dering the Strehlow terraces are the
first to signify their desire to fall in
with the plan.
Organize Business Girls.
There is talk of organizing the
business girls in the large office build
ings for Red Cross work, but the dif
ficulty to be met here is in obtaining
enough supervisors and instructors
for night work.
A movement to enroll more mem
bers of the large women's organiza
tions such as the Omaha Woman's
club and the Association of Col
legiate Alumnae, both of which hold
several departmental meetings a
week, is on toot.
Visitors thronged the state inspec
tion warehouse in the Haubens build
ing between the hours of 2 and 6 for
the "open house," arranged so that
the public might view the work.
Heads of departments showed the
visitors through the different rooms
where receiving, censoring and pack

let-up in the work through the after
noon, even while the "reception" was

-BURGESS-NASH STORE NEWS FOR MONDAY-
New Stor Hour
"9 A. M. to 6 P. M."
Is the Word
Of the Hour
All of us have been asked
to conserve to save meat,
wheat, sugar, fuel, power
and many other things.
The blessing of an early
and sure peace rests on what
you, as a unit of red-blooded
Americans, do in getting on
without the large use of
these various things which
must be conserved.
Now it has become neces
sary to save daylight also
because saving daylight
means the saving of artificial
light, which in turn is a sav
ing of power and fuel.
By a ruling of the Fuel
Administration the new store
hours, beginning Monday,
have been scheduled open
ing at 9 a. m. and closing at
6 p. m., Saturdays included.
Then, aside from this, the
lights in the show windows
the eyes of the store and
possibly one of the greatest
advertising assets, are not
lighted at all this to accom
plish as best possible, the
conservation of fuel.
The shortened store hours
brings changed shopping con
d i t i ons procrastination
steals most of the morning
hours before 10 o'clock
while rioon finds the day half
gone, with a dozen things
left undone which should
have been accomplished in
the morning hours.
These of necessity must
then be crowded into the few
hours of the afternoon. ,
Get the habit and make
the most of the morning
Instead of shopping in the
afternoon, start from home
at 8 or 9 o'clock, we'll be
ready for you. '
Shop in the morning con
serve daylight and help the
merchants help Uncle Sam.
You'll find here1 a splendid
collection of the new ideas in
