Campfire Girls Are Bluebird Guardians
Omahans Anxiously Await :
News from Relatives in Paris
"PaVis Bombarded by i ong Distance j
Guns." How the huge black letters in
the headline stared at us on batur
day when wc snatched an extra from
a newsie's grimy hand. Even while
we were reading the dire news our
thoughts turned to the Omahans in
the French oapital. Where are they
and how are they faring." was the
uppermost question in many minds.
Many of our Omaha girls who are
doing their bit in the war zone are
stationed in Paris, and the days will
be anxious cnes until the letters be
gin to come telling of their safety.
Miss Louise Dinning, who has been
in Paris for some time, has joined the
Hollingiworth hospital unit,stationed
at La Panne in Belgium. Mrs. Turner,
however, is still in the city. Mrs.
Irving Stern, who was formerly Miss
Ruth Brandcis, has made her home
in Paris for a number of years, and
has been doing a wonderful work in
war relief activities.
In the vanguard of relief' workers
will probably be found a Council

Organ Recital for Red Cross.
' Several hundred people were
turned away Sunday afternoon, when
Clarepce Eddy, the famous organist,
gave his recital at the First Presbyte
rian church. A feature of the pro
gram was a solo sung by Miss Eugenie
Whitmore. "The Angel's Message"
was chosen by Miss Whitmore, as this
beautiful Easter song seemed espe
cially fitting at this time. Both Mr.
Eddy and Miss Whitmore gave their
services for the Red Cross and over
$200 was collected following the re
cital. Mr. Eddy has been a guest at
the Whitmore home during his"stay
and left Sunday evening for his home
in San Francisco.

Trivial seems the tasks we complete each day compared to the
magnitude of the world's possibilities.
Ah, yes. Trivial because we understand our little part. But the big ,
part is 'also trivial because that, too, is understood by someone.
Art, to the clod, means the expression of a superior mind the artist
a superior person. - .... , , .
Engineering is the feat of a super-mind in the eyes of a theologian,
perhaps. To him an engineer is the cream from the milk of life.
Music! Is it a divine gift from heaven? Is the musician inspired by a
higher power? Wre respect him.
But never does it occur to us that the clerk, or the dressmaker, or the
manufacturer of woodenware, the boilermaker, or the telephone operator,
or the elevator man, or the office boy is just as important in his business
of life as the artist, or musician, or the engineer.
Master minds? Surely there are a few, for they do the thing which
many others are trying to do, in a superior, masterful way.
But the king and the clown are more or less alike. Each fills his place
among people; each as necessary as the other.
A pause iij this busy life!
And we see that the magnificent scheme fits us to its need. We. cannot
carry on this business of life without the great executives neither can
we go on without the office boy and all the workers between.
Are you giving to Life the best there is in you?
If you are just shuffling through you are a cheat, no matter how im
portant your position may seem to the world. But if you give the best
there is in you even to the most menial work, then you arc an important
person. . .... .u-
We arc all workers for eternity and every little task means something,
though we may not understand it Our duty is not alone to our earthly
employers, but to ourselves and the great business of life then employers
cannot help but benefit, and the world shall reap the reward.
