Strawberries, Rhubarb and
Fresh Vegetables on Market
Strawberries nice, red, ripe straw,
berries, straight from the gardens of
Louisiana, brought to Omaha as fast
as steam can bring them are on the
local markets now. .And the spring
drive toward strawberry shortcake has
started, for the berries are only 20
rents for a pint box. These are the
first strawberries of the season that
are of natural and not forced growth
They are really ripe and have a good
flavor. . .
Rhubarb of the real kind that grows
out in the sunshine is on the local
market for the first time this season.
That which was here before was
grown in cellars and had a pale color
and rather flabby body. But this has a
good, honest red color and is crisp
Green and white string beans from
the gardens of the south are here at
30 cents a pound.
Tomatoes from the south At 30
cents a pound and hothouse tomatoes,
grown around Omaha at 40 cents a
pound, are among the luxuries. Aspar
agus from California also comes in
this Jist It is SO cents a pound.
Lettuce, radishes and the like are
plentiful and cheap. Cabbage and
cauliflower have never been better
than now. Beets, carrots, turnips and
parsnips of both the old and new
crops are plentiful in all local markets.
Potatoes are still holding down to low
prices, with no prospect of an advance.
Often canned vegetables need only
skillful seasoning to make them as
good as fresh. Chopped onio n or
green peppers may add a good flavor.
Of course, you will not use any
canned vegetables about which there
is a suspicion of spoilage.

. plans whereby every Girl Scout troop

bility. To stimulate interest and in

Money for Defense '
Unique means of raising money for
carrying on the work of the woman's
committee. Nebraska Council of De
fense, are being resorted to by its
members. In Red Cloud a hen and a
tag day was widely advertised. The
original call for the donation of a
hen or the price of a hen was changed
to the eggs or the price of eggs upon

J'AH right; suit yourself! Don't
bother about me, I'll do it. It will
be a long time before I ask another
favor of you, though." The head
stenographer flounced out of the of
fice and back into her own sanctum.
Millie stared after her resentfully.
"Now, what right had she to go up
in the air like that? I wasn't crazy
to stay after hours and help her get
out all those catalogues, but I sup
pose I might have if she'd asked me
different But when sbe comes out
and says that she supposes it's too
much to ask of me and she knows I
don't take enough interest in the firm
to give up an evening at the movies
to get out their work, I just naturally
got riled and said I wouldn't stay."
Now that head stenographer might
be an office manager or perhaps even
an official in the organization, but she
can't keep her temper, and that has
blocked her own success. Sometimes
temper hurts only the individual. It
interferes with his health, it costs him
friends, handicaps his ability. Do you
know that a great many cases of bad
digestion come from bad disposition?
You can't digest a cup of chicken
broth and a piece of toast if you are
"all riled up" when you eat them.
Temper handicaps the individual,
but it does more than that. It blocks
the success of an organization.
The other evening at a dinner party
I met the new manager of big film
corporation, a film corporation that
has failed and must be reorganized
at a great loss. With wonderful stars,
good directors, clever scenario writers
and all the artistic and literary back
grounds for success, nevertheless this
film company has failed completely.
And the reason is not far to seek.
Temper did itl Of course, m the
artistic world they ofttn call temper
temperament, but the results are the
I remember iatching this particular
organization take one single scene.
Husband and wife sat in the dining
room and the maid brought in the
morning coffee. The husband was
reading the paper and his face was
hidden from the audience. So "the
temperamental made star" saw no rea
son why he should bother with a long,
stupid scene in which his face never
showed. Someone could double for
him. .The "temperamental" female
star objected to doing this scene with
an "extra" man. Bickering and quar
reling over that necessitated getting
somebody who looked like the "young
wife" in the picture to take the place
of the ill-tempered star.
Two mornings were spent on that
scene two mornings ana a good deal
of salary, and many feet of film were
eaten up while camera men and direc
tors tried to please two stars who
didn't know how to keep their respec
In the end the scene was taken all
over again, with the stars instead of
their doubles, and even then it had
to be retaken several times because an
ill-tempered director so frightened the
girl who was taking the part of the
maid that she dropped her tray in the
first "take," got out of focus the sec
ond time, had altogether the wrong
expression on her face the third time
and was so flustered the fourth time
that she passed the tray to the man
first instead of to the woman.
One thousand dollars and a great
loss of time an energy were what
three tempers cost the film company
for that one scene. I have an idea
I know why the organization failed
To, Equip Women
With War Information
In order to equip the women of
Nebraska with facts with which to
defeat enemy propaganda Miss Sarka
Hrbkova, chairman of the woman's
rommittee, Nebraska State Council of
Defense, is urging them to read the
educational booklets issued by the
government. These booklets may be
secured free of cost from the woman's
committee headquarters, Bankers'
Life building. Lincoln.
The pamphlets which are particu
lar! v recommended are the following:
"the War Message and the Facts
Behind It." This contains the state
ment of the immediate causes of our
war with Geimany.
"The Government of Germany."
This contains a review of the govern
ment that rules Germany and showt
why it is a menace to our f ree insti
tutions. "American Loyalty." This is a com
pilation of statements from Americas
citizens of German descent It is in
tended for the information of those o)
foreign birth or parentage.
Flaf Day Speech.
"The President's Flag Day Speech'
With Evidence of the German Plans."
This is the. chief collection of the evi
dence of our enemy's world-wide plot
ting against us and shows why it it
necessary for the United States to re
main in the war until he is defeated
"How the War Came to America,"
These are the facts leading to out
entrance into the war.
Just figure out how much real substantial nour
ishment you receive in a plate of Ice Cream and
then compare it with any other dessert. Add the
