"The Day We Celebrate."
Hatchets and cherries, powdered
hair and patches, will hold sway to
day at all the affairs given by differ
ent societies and clubs in the city.
A George Washington party was
given by the members of the Central
Congregational church Thursday eve
ning. A number of the young girls
looked particularly charming in their
Martha Washington costumes. Miss
Hazel Updike's gown was of pale
green silk made with the panniers on
the hips and a wide bertha around
the shoulder. With her hair pow
dered and a coquettish little patch on
one cheek Miss Updike was as pretty
a Martha Washington as one could
wish for. Miss Elizabetn Mitchell
was dressed in a gown of long ago.
A tight basque of black satin trimmed
in jet with a full skirt of bright blue
transformed the 1918 miss into a
revolutionary war maid.

Former Omaha Woman
Practical patriotism is the aim of
the food production department of
the woman's committee of the Ne
braska State Council for Defense, as
conducted by Mrs. Fred M. Deweese
of Hilaire farm, Dawson. Mrs. De
weese, who is herself a farm woman
and producer, has found that the pa
triotic response of producers to last
year's requests to utilize all space and
"produce and can all you can" caused
a great deal of waste, which she
hopes may be avoided this year.
"Our aim in food production is
to stimulate the production of all
food that can possibly be utilized,"
said Mrs. Deweese. "We do not urge
indiscriminate production of perish
ables or such articles as are not pur
chasable on the general market until
there is a solution in sight of some
of the present problems of labor,
market and transportation. As soon
as there is a definite prospect of so
lution of any of these difficulties we
will enlarge the program.
"We wish to urge far more than
the former usual consumption of gar
den produce, honey, poultry and
cheese. Our recommendations are

Peruvian Women to
American manufacturers, eager . to
take advantage of war-time conditions
in Peru to introduce their goods, are
utilizing the motion picture theaters
to induce Peruvian women to buy
"made in America" goods.
Motion picture theaters are numer
ous in Peru, and there are few
towns without at least one. A "ver
mouth," or matinee performance, is
given from 6 or 6:30 in the afternoon
to 7:45 or 8 o'clock, when a later ex
hibition from 9 to 11:30 o'clock. The
first is the more popular in the capi
tal because a late dinner hour, which
is the rule in Peru, permits society
to attend. An additional matinee is
given on Sundays, starting at 3:30
o'clock. The average seating capac
ity of Peruvia picture theaters is 400.
The custom of taking afternoon tea
is universal, and one popular tea
room in Lima entertains its patron
with motion pictures from 4 until 8
In the best theaters many of the
slides are distinctive and carefully
prepared in natural colors, and the
Americans are taking advantage of it.
In the course of a month this adver
tisement will probably be seen by
from 8,000 to 10,000 persons. The De
