Movement to Reclaim Fruit Trees The United States has hundreds of millions of neglected fruit trees, and J. F. Deems, federal food adminis trator for Iowa, is encouraging a movement among the nurserymen, agricultural agents, and farmers of his state to have such trees pruned, culti vated, sprayed, and brought into greater production. The idea has been taken up in Oregon and other jtates. Kafir Corn Ground at Home Hundreds of Oklahoma famine are using corn meal and kafir-corn flour ground in small hand mills at home. This not only solves any local prob lem of supply in cereal substitutes and. save millers' and retailers' profits, but the fresh-ground meal produced at home has a quality and flavor obtainable in no other wv. Red Cross Sends Canteen on Wheels To Italian Front The Red Cross has this week added a new and picturesque branch to its many activities in Italy by sending two "rolling canteens" to the front.

Newfoundland Grinds First Wheat The first flour ever ground in New foundland was recently produced from wheat grown m that colony, Newfoundland is so far north that although wheat had been ripened oc casionally in previous years under favorable conditions it was used only for poultry feeding. Last year, under pressure for food production, some very hardy wheat seed was obtained from the northern sections or west em Canada and planted in the most fertile soil on the island. Enough of this crop ripened to justfy bringing in a secondhand flour mill from Nova Scotia, and much larger plantins are to be made this year. Child Institute Nurses Bake Cake For the Red Cross We have heard the old Idage of too many cooks spoiling the broth many times, but in the case ot the Child Savings Institute cake a number of cooks constructed the most luscious devil's food cake ever seen or tasted. The nurses at the institute are very busy people taking care of so many homeless kiddies and they felt that they must do something to help the Red Cross. Someone suggested mak ing the cake and immediately the flour, sugar, butter and flavoring were brought into action and before you could wink a toothsome chocolate cake with sparkling white frosting was ready for sale. To the stock exchange the pretty nurses went with their cake and, en listing the services of a real auction eer, the cake was put up far sale. You should have seen the men flock around! Anyone who thinks that the sterner ex hasn't a sweet tooth should have been there. After months of sweet less days that big cake was not to be missed. They couldn't wait to bid in the prescribed way, but actually threw their money at the auctioneer. One of the nurses received several bumps on her head where she was hit by silver dollars. The lucky man who got the cake was so afraid that someone would try to take it away from him that he hastened away with his prize and none even knows his name! And the result is that $335 poured into the coffers of the Red Cross. The nurses who had a finger in the cake included: Misses Amy. Davis, Emma Glew, Margaret Davis, Cath erine Jonescheit, Lois Dixon, Cora Golbeck, Ershall Fawcett, Mary Fin ger and Mrs. Carrie Parrish. Women's Share in Red Cross Direction Is Ever Increasing At Daughters' Conference. Omaha is represented at the Daugh ters of the American Revolution na tional conference which opened today in Washington by Mesdames C. II. Aull and Edgar Allan. The former's sister, Mrs. George Thacker Guernsey, of Independence, Kan., is the national president-general and will preside dur ing the meeting.

Herzog and the Misses Fay and Carita Herzog of Lin coln assisted at the reception., The rooms were attractively decorated with greens and about 75 guests called If? lit tF'0s. x4Mf a.

Recently Mlsa Elizabeth S. Hoyt was mads Assistant to the General Manager. Miss Hoyt was landscape artist of note and was chosen for her present position because of her talent along executive lines. Miss Ina Taft, for merly Director of Women's Work in the Central Division, has just been made Superintendent of Garments. Miss Jane A. Delano, who Is Chair man of the Red. Cross Department of Nursing, was formerly Superin tendent of the Tratning School for Nurses at Bellevue Hospital, New York, and the Hospital of the UnU verslty of Pennsylvania. Miss Mar tha Draper Is Associate Director vt he Bureau of Personnel. All of these work harder than the average business woman and without pay. The picture Is that ot Miss Hoyt. during the afternoon. Mrs. Roths child's daughters give this reception in honor of their mother each year. Miss Congdon Hostess.

Camouflage Butter The high price of butter has given opportunity to interest housewives again in a familiar scheme variously known as "making two pounds of butter out of one," "wonderful butter increaser, or magic buttermaker. It is generally pointed out that two pounds of butter can be made out of one oound of butter mixed with milk, There is nothing new about this de vice, according to the dairy depart ment of the University of Nebraska, since it has been sold in different parts of the country off and on for at least 30 or 40 years. ' According to law, butter must con tain at least 82 per cent butter fat, and not to exceed 16 per cent water, which of course, would not be the case if skim milk or water were'mixey with it. It is, therefore, illegal to offer such a product for sale as but ter. It is simply another way of add ing water or skim milk to the butter the same results might be ac complished by spreading the butter about half as thick, as far as actual nourishment is concerned. It is remarkable that in the course of the 18th century women mostly guided the fates of Russia, while the male sovereigns could not hold their own, but usually die violent deaths. Pipings of yellow are a great addi tion to the blue serge dress. The new calicoes have delightful designs on a white background.
