Readers of The Bee from out in Nebraska and other neighboring
states are beginning to get in effective licks to discover a fitting and
proper method for Milady to salute Old Glqry, whenever the occasion
Miss Bessie G. Smith of Columbus, Neb., writes;
"Place the palm of the right hand against the left breast, above the
heart, in a quick military manner; stand at 'attention' with eyes turned
toward the colors.
Now if you all understand the position of a soldier at "attention,"
practice this before your mirror tonight and see how you like it if it isn't
satisfactory, come ahead with your suggestion.
Lieutenant Burton Fain of Fort Omaha defines his salute of "placing
the open right hand directly over the heart, at the same time extending
left arm and hand on straight line to the front with palm upward and
open," as follows:
"This salute indicates 'I am willing to shed my heart's blood if neces
sary in defense of the flag, and I receive and accept the Sag as my pro
tection and shield from all enemies whatsoever.' "
One enthusiastic contributor, to more forcefully bring out his idea,
strikingly illustrates his "I Love You" salute with a cartoon It consists
of a resounding kiss on the palm of the right hand, and a wave at Old
Glory as it appears.
Mrs. W. G. Gray, Kearney, Neb., suggests:
"We all have pockets these days. Why not try the Chautauqua salute
of waving our handkerchiefs three times as "Old Glory" passes!
Anna Tarter, 325 Scott street, Council Bluffs, says one wave of a
handkerchief, even with the head, and a sweeping bow would be an ef
fective salute. Miss Tarter did not explain how to accomplish this in a
Mrs. D. W. Marr, Fort Calhoun, Neb., writes:
"Face the flag, place the right hand on the left breast, over the heart,
with fingers close together and palm against the breast, signifying service,
faith and hope."
"Bow her head" it the short and snappy suggestion of Miss Agnes
Craven, of the Kellogg apartments.
From J. M. Clifford, 583 Brandeis building:
"Raise the open right hand, palm towards the front, perpendicular
and about sir inches from the face, pause, lower it with a graceful curve,
point with t.'e index finger toward the heart signifying open-hearted
loyalty and fUelity."
Mrs. T. P. Shirley, 2109 Vinton. street: '
"I would tuggest the regular military salute with a slight bowing of
the head submission and reverence." ,
Miss Irene McKnight of Omaha believes the most appropriate salu
tation would be. to raise the right hand to the forehead and pray to one's
patron saint for peace.
The rules for the contest follows:
Rule 1 The salute contest closes Thursday, April 25. Letters post
marked up to 6 p. m. will be accepted, and a special effort made to get
all that are in the postofftce.
Rule 2 Write your suggestion plainly on one side of the paper, and
sign your name in lull, and give complete address.
Rule 3 Confine your suggestion to 75 words, making it "snappy."

the contest. , '
Rule 5. Address your suggestion to "Contest Editor," Omaha Bee,

German and not the American point

have "sulked in their tents" and have
left the expression of German-American
opinion to irresponsible newspa

AND ME. By William Allon White. The
MacMlllan Company. $1.50.
To use the words of the author,
this volume is a humorous account of
the experiences of "two middle-aged
old coots who go out to a ruthless
war without their wives." They have
commissions in their pockets from
the American Red Cross, and they
are going to the front in the inter
ests of that organization. Their story
is distinguished by an abundance of
good spirits. It is typically Ameri
can, exemplifying the buoyant, whole
hearted fashion with which thousands
of Americans have entered upon a
great task, confident that there is
much that is unpleasant before them,
but resolved to make the best of
things. With its humor and its gen
eral tone ot wholesomcness it is a
valuable antidote to the numerous
publication which have overempha
sized the grimness and horror of the
Magazine Notes.

Magazine contains the third install

where in France.
Brigadier General George H. Har

Electric Light and Power company,
is now "somewhere in France," in
charge of a fighting unit, according
to definite word which has been re
ceived in Omaha.
Whether General Harries went over
with the same body of men which
he has been training at Camp Jack
son, Columbia, b. W., for three
months is not known. General Har
rjes was commandant of the Carolina
post for three months, this camp hav
ing been made up entirely of ne
groes. General Harries left Omaha one
year ago. He was ordered to Camp
Cody, Ueming, N. M. Hundreds of
Nebraska boys, formerly of the
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth regiments,
were at Camp Cody.
In a letter to Omaha friends recent
ly General Harries intimated that he
might be ordered across soon. He
told friends in the letter that he was
"sending home some personal stuff
which he would not be able to use
'over there.'"
Camp Jackson was composed of an
infantry brigade, which may have
crossed the Atlantic with General
Harries. General Harries is an old
regular army man.
As president of the electric com

business and social life of Omaha.
