Omaha Society Womeri Forget Luncheon Engage
ments; Hostesses Take It in Good Humor
DID you ever forget a luncheon engagement? Then you know the agoniz
ing feeling that comes over you when the indignant hostess calls over
the 'phone and asks where you were when you should have been sitting
at her luncheon table. . 1 ,
. "Oh, I forgot," is such a lame excuse, but a very true one, nevertheless.
Rut does it appease the lady? Hardly. You might forget to eat your break
fast or to purchase a new spring hat, but to forget her luncheon should be a
This is not an imaginary situation by any means, for certain Omaha ma

themselves, and their hostesses, with perfect candor.

By GERTRUDE BERESFORD.
A BANNER crop of sweaters is
assured us this summer. The
wools are produced iri shades
more lovely than ever, but mercerized
cotton is the smart choice for knit

cerized cotton with cuffs and collar
of robin's egg blue angora makes
thisr attractive sports model.'1 The
skirt of white silk is pleated and
robin's egg blue wool or mercerized
cotton in the same .shade of blue.
A blue suede belt holds the fullness
of the sweater at the waist line and
a similar band decorates the sailor

Will Lecture in
t Omaha Monday
Mary Boyle O'Reilly, noted news
paper woman, will lecture in Omaha
Monday at 4V o'clock in the Fonte
nelle. under the auspices of rtie Fine
Arts' society. Miss O'Reilly will tell
her European experiences just pre
ceding the declaration of war, on the
day of which she was in Belgium and
fell back vith the population to Light.
Miss O'Reilly came back to do relief
work, interviewed the Belgian queen,
worked with Edith Cavell, the nurse
who was executed as a spy by the
Germans,' and was arrested, in Hol
land as a "dangerous war correspond
ent" and deported.
Miss O'Reilly reached France dur
ing the battle of the Marne and lived
in Bordeaux when the government
was in exile. The newspaper woman
had many thrilling experiences in the
war zone. '
She is the daughter of John Boyle
O'Reilly, famous Irish patriot and
What to Do and
How to Do It
"l know what the United States
food administration is asking us to
save," one housewife, was heard to
remark, "but 1 can't cut down any
more than I have unless I can get
something to take its place." -,
That is exactly the question to be
solved. What will "take its place?"
The first thing to determine, then,
is what each of these foods you are
asked to erve, contributes to the
body s needs. And the next step is to
find other foods that will supply
those same food elements.
Wheat furnishes starch, for one
thing. But so do the otherc steals.
Why noVuse corn, oats, rye, rice, and
barteyjis both an admixture in flour
and as a cereal? Serve such starchy
vegetables as sweet and Irish potato
more often and iess bread will be
Meat has long been considered the
chief source of protein. But there are
Lmany other foods equally rich in body
building material, such as milk, poul
try, fish, cheese, eggs, dried legumes
and some of the nuts. The duty of the
patriotic housewife is to study which
of these foods are most satisfactory
to her family in exchange for meat
and then to devise new ways of com
jining and serving them. She can also
extend the meat flavor and make a
very little meat go a very long way.
For stews some of these "meat ex
tenders" are potatoes, parsnips, car
rots, and turnips, while inexpensive
meat dishes can be prepared by com
bining the cheaper cuts of meat with
rice, potato, and other vegetables.
, V Home Hints ;
When roasting or baking a piece
of meat skewer some thin suet over
it. This saves the trouble of basting,
prevents it from burning and flavors
the meat nicely. , , , .
To remove iron rust from white ma
terial, wet the article with lemon
sun. If the first application fails
try it again. , , ;
The creaking of a door may be
stopped by rubbing the hinges with
a piece of soap. -This does not spoil
the look ot tne paint as wnen on is
used. - '
To renovate black lace', wash it in
strong vinegar and water, rinse it
in strong coffee, and iron while damp
with a piece of flannel laid over it

how much you can afford to spend. Lave

officer In the United States army. J ftve
him no encouragement, though he feated
me as though I had known him for years.
This young man has since left tor France
and has promised to write. .Would yau ad
vise me to answer? I have since f.-iind
that. 1 dearly love 4 he young soldier His
home town does not happen to be In this
section of the country, and unless I request
him to he may never return to th's part
ot the country again. MADELINE.
What la your trouble about? Tou flirted
and coquetted with your soldier boy end
now you wish you had been more genuine
about showing hlmj your feelings, "'lite
sweet, honest letters with some of your
genuine feelings for him expressed In thtm.
That doesn't mean that yeu need to be
bold or forward, but that you are to send a
real expression of fine feeling to a ('..titer

Why Not Marry?
Dear Miss Fairfax: I have been going
about with a young man for two year Our
sincere frlendslp turned to love.
Everything was running along fine until
His firm wants him to go to Florid, tbey
offer him from $50 to (60 per week
I am very anxious to see him make bis
way In this world, but I will be terribly
lonesome, as I am an orphan.
We are too young to marry, as he is enly
21 years of age, and I am IS years.
K. V. L
Under the circumstances, I really don't
see why you are one bit too young to marry.
Tou have known each other for two years.
Tou were friends first and are. now lovers.
If he goes to Florida alone, he wl'l ircb
ably be lonely and homesick and won' g'.ve
his best to his work; and the knowledge
that you are up here grieving for him won't
help him a bit. If you are sure of your
feelings for each other, marry first and
make good together. Of course you don't
want to stand between your swetheart and
his splendid opportunity.
Don't Be Narrow-Minded.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am about to be
married. I was brought up by an uncle,
and do not remember my parents. Now
my uncle tells me that my mother and
father weme of a different religion. My
friend Is of the same religion as my mother'
was. I do not know what to do, as I have
not told my friend about It yet. I am not
over the shock yet and I am afraid the
news would break my sweetheart's heart.
Dear Miss Fairfax kindly advise me what
to do. v. P. M.
There is no tragedy in your situation
nothing for you to be shocked about noth
ing to break your fiance's heart. Suppose
your mother and father differed from each
other In religion, followed another creed
than the one to which you adhere after
all I suppose they were good people who
loved their Maker, worshipped Hlra honestly
after the dictates of their own hearts and
tried tolove their fellow-men? Now sup.
pose you do the sama thing. If you really
believe In God the Father, then you must
also believe In the brotherhood of man and
you can't get So excited because a brother
or a parent worshipped a little differently
than you do. Tell you sweetheart your
discovery, but don't act as If It were a con
fession of shame or a relation of misfor
tune. It Is Just an Interesting fact about
the mother you never knew but still re
A Man's Attentions.
Dear Miss Fairfax: What would you
think of a young man 23, earning 135 per
week, who., knows a girl five months, en
Joys hospitality at her home, and who,
during all the five months, has never shown
the slightest appreciation?
My sister, whom he comes to see, tries
to excuse him by saying that he may know
no better, or that perhaps he considers her
more sensible than other girls, and that she
does not require foolish attentions.
The young man Is well educated, refined,
supports no one but himself, and calls on
no other girls. I think he can, therefore,
hardly be excused. , K. C.
I think your sister Is right and that the
young man probably 'does not realize that
he Is behaving rather selfish. While that
explains him, it does not alter, him and '
make him unselfish or thoughtful. Possibly
he Is frugal and Is Inclined to feel that the
girls of today are too much inclined to
make extravagant demands and that there
fore your sister's charm for him lies In her
simple tastes. No girl wants to be classed
as a "grafter," and yet no girl really enjoys
the friendship of a man who la too selfish
to feel that giving ber pleasure Is an Im
portant part of that friendship. "Watchful
waiting" Is about the best course to pursue.
After all, your sister does not want either
to hint or to ask for the attentions which
mean nothing unless they are freely glveo-
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee. -Being In
a rather sentimental mood this evening and
incidentally receiving some ot the old Bees
on the library table, I happen by chance to '
observe In the society page, ''Advice to
l.ove-Irn." the "Bachelor's Appeal,' or
"The Reader," as you signed It, of February
2. I hardly know what comment to make,
but above all I think the gentleman Is very
sincere In his letter. Now I haven't much
to say for myself, but will add, this Is the
first attempt I have ever made in answering
an ad of this krnd. But it may bring to
gether undesirable results and ilt may not.
Now you may wish to publish this note.'
but do as you wish. My note Is to obtain
the young bachelor's Address, so I may com
municate with him.' Please do not men
tion my name, for I am well known around
here and The Bee la also very numerous.
However, I live In a town of 1,800, have a
fine home and pleasant surroundings, but
still my soul calls forth with dissatisfaction
a "longing" whiclt has never yet been
fulfilled, possibly due to the fact of never
meeting Just one Ideal companion or com.
rade for life.
So, dear Miss Fairfax, If you will con
sider this note and answer my wish. Thank
ing you, I am, sincerely, IOWA READER.
"The Bachelor" has written a farewell
letter, answering all the communications
addressed to him through The Bee. I am
sorry I cannot give you his address, but wa
could not attempt as momentous a task as
finding husbands and wives for everyone
Why Not Study?
Dear Miss Fairfax: In the paper 1
noticed that you give so many girU advice.
I wonder If you can also help me. I am
a very attractive blonde, 22 years old and
am five feet nine Inches tall, and am full
of pep. I Joke all the time and my friends
always asks me if I do not get tired '
laughing. I want to ask you where I would
have to go If I wanted to go on the stage.
I am a good singer, that Is plain singing,
and dance real well I fiav always longed
to go on the stage. Do yon think I would
be a good one for the stage? Please advice
me just as you think. Thanking you in ad
vance, I am, ,
' If you , think you have talent for ths
stage I would suggest that you enter
dramatic school and study for a career. '
Why don't jot begin by taking lessons In 1
elocution? Too must have natural talent.

nothing. ... " .. ,l
