Prizes for Red Cross Benefit
nOUR PATRIOTIC OMAHANS are so anxious not to lose a minute for
war work that the card clubs have adopted a unique plan of raising money
for the Red Cross. A little club,
years, was entertained inursaay evening aime nome or Mr, ana airs. vv.

After the playing was over and
SuggcSlCU all aucisvil. fv uuuui iuvi&.auur -ra-tt- -, a, muiua muuuicu man,
holding the ladies' prize, a pair of silk hose, in his. hand. He bfgan the regular
auctioneer's jargon: " . "
"How much am I bid, etc." The bidding waxed hotter and higher, until,
the silk hose were sold for $11. Then everyone voted to determine where
the money should be sent and the War Relief society won the most votes.
The gentleman's prize was also silk hose, but instead of an auction the
guests drew numbers from a hat and each one paid the amount of his num
ber. As the clock struck twelve, the one who held the highest number was
given the prize. The Nebraska base hospital benefited by this amount, 5 and
some cents. . .- , . '
The 12 guests then "voted" unanimously that" they had had more fun
that, evening than ever before and they went home with a pleased feeling
that they had helped two worthy causes at4he same time.- The little club
includes: Messrs. and Mesdams James Richards, F. B. Aldous, C. D. Sturte
vant, W. G. Brandt, Dwight Williams, Miss-Mary Hall and Dr. E. M. Barnes.
