"Milk is in season. Milk is both
meat and drink. It furnishes easy
energy to the system. It has a
hundred uses. It may be served
as a beverage, as 'a soup; it may
be made the foundation of the
main dish at the meal, or it may
be made into a delightful dessert.
It adds strength to the body; it
furnishes motive power. It is in
expensive in comparison with
other foods, more often used."

With both Charles and Lewis' Bur

many people have wondered if the

Burgess has said that her plans were

if Mrs. Burgtss joins the Omaha col

We are expecting that the summer
months wilt find many mothers and

Bring Many Changes
The war brings many changes to
us all, and it is surprising to note
how many or our prominent people
have moved to distant' cities. Of
course, grea. numbers of our young

of the world, but whole families have
closed their homes and gone to east

Omaha lost a most delightful young
couple when Mr. and Mrs. Herbert

Not Exactly Fair to Him.
Deer Miss Fairfax: I have been going
about with a young man now In tba navy.
Now, you know, Miss Fairfax, the pay of a
sailor U not much. He wanted ma to ac
cept an engagement ring from him, but
thought that the money In the bank would
Be rar better, o I told him to eave the
money that he would have spent on it, and
that laterwhen we were married he could
then give It to me when we found that
we could spare the money. Now, this young
have loved from the first time I knew her.
but now I find she expects my fiance to
turn half his money over to her. Now that
we have atarted an account together, I hats
to break It up. but I am afraid that I shall
get so despondent that I shall send her every
cent that belongs to him and just save my
own- HELgN W.
It seems to me that this boy'a mothei
li being most unfair to him. But I only know
one side of the story your, as you tell It.
It Is a splendid Idea for yoi- to teach thlsN
boy to be saving and for the two of you
to build together toward your future home.
Are you sure the mother, understands ex..
actly what your spirit is? Perhaps she looks
forward rather sadly to the possibility that
her boy will never return, and It may even
be that she thinks of you rs a maneuverlni
young woman, who Is trying to get his
money Into her possession. V'hy don't you
explain very clearly to the boy'a mother
just how you feel about the happy future
you two expect to have together? What la
more, ne nonest witn yorrself and make sure
that you aren't trying to get a little nest
egg with which to console yourself In ease
the boy never returns to you.
A patriotic party is planned for
Thursday evening to be given by the
Friendship club at Metropolitan
hall. It is to be really patriotic from
the red, white and blue ice cream to
the door receipts, which will be given
to the Red Cross.
For the lovers of the old-fashioned
dances of our grandmother's day, a
small hall has been opened down
stairs , at the club. It accomodates
about 25 couples and in the lulls of
a frisky one-step upstairs one can
hear the familiar "swing your part
ners" from the hall below. The fath
ers and mothers are very enthusias
tic over this plan, for here they
may indulge in the old-time Virginia
reel and quadrille to their heart's

Be Fair to Her.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I was introduced to
a young girl whom I now lore very much
and sbs In turn loves ms. We became en
laced two months ago. My frlsnda tell me
that I was too hasty, for this young woman
Is la a Tsry peculiar etroumstance. She la
a very poor girl and Uvea In a bad neighbor,
Now, personally, I would have no doubt
aa to what alternative I should ehooss,
but I am becoming perturbed at the advice
of my frlsnda. H. S. H.
Poverty and advene elreumstaaeea need'
not make a girl "bed," Uvea If this girl
were a little bit weak and inollned to
chooss the wrong path In Ufa, your faith
la her might be the very thing to save her
and help her In making her fight. If on
the other hand you were to throw her over,
It la very possible that even a fairly strong
girl who waa making a fight against temp
tation might in a bitter reaction agalnat
your eruel Judgment of her decide to "have
the game aa well aa the name." , Faith in
deed often moves mountains. If I were a
man, I would defend the girl I loved against
unkind and probably unjust criticism not
doubt her because of them. Can't 'yon -judge
for yourself whether or not ehe to
fine and aweet and making the right eort
of appeal to yon or whether the attraction
she baa for you li base and unworthy,
The Art "of Conversation.
Dear Miss Fairfax! I am IS and lonesome,
having no friends of either sex, aa I am
not attraotlve or interesting, but quiet and
How eaa I make myself popular, able to
carry en some eort of a conversation?
What yon need most la to forget yourself.
Spend an hour every day reading good newa
and edltorlala. Just do It because you think
that la part of your education. Examine
yourself every day to see how much yon re
member, Tou will progress. When yon find
yourself at a loss for something to talk
about. It la probably beoauae your Idea, of
conversation la an occasion for yourself to .
shine. Toa want to say something brilliant
and Interesting, which wUl win the admira
tion of the other person. Olve up that Idea,
and Instead of It make a business of drawing
out the other person, who probably la Just
aa shy and miserable as yon are, even If he '
or she happens to be a better sport about
It or to make a more determined effort to
rise above it Get people to tell you what
they are doing, what they are Interested m;
learn to listen and suddenly you will find
that you are considered a charming arm
pathlc person and have many friends.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am 18 and hare been
Kolng about with a young man for a year.
He says he wishes to marry me some day,
but I have seen so many marriages prove
failures that I am hesitating In becoming
engaged. As my mother and father had
trouble I know what It Is and wish to be
sure of his love before I give him my
Can you suggest some way T may be
sure of a happy marriage? DOUBTFUL.
Tou poor, youthful, little cynic! A good
many marriages are failures; that doesn't
mean that the Institution Itself Is a failure,
but that the people who are Into It aren't
the right kind of partners. If ifou are
ready to do your part to bear and for
bear and to give love and understanding
to the man you lovs( and If he is as ready
to be "square" .with you as you are with
him, your life partnership ought to work
out very well. I -am not going to suggest
any "love tests" to you. Time la the best
one, and you, as well as the boy of whom
you are fond, will have to pass It. It yoa
still care for each other as you grow older,
you will be brave enough to take the risks
and chances one has to endure to win any
kind of happiness In life.
Dear Miss Fairfax: A few months ago a
friend Introduced me to a girl from the
south. About two months ago she re
turned home, and since then we have been
corresponding. My friend is In love with
this girl, and she likes him. I, too, have
taking a liking to her. My friend is Jeal
ous and demands that I show him the
letters I get from her. This I naturally
refuse to do. He says I must either atop
writing or break friendship With him. I
am at a loss what to do. A. C.
Tour friend's attitude seems to me most
unfair. If he were this gtrl'a accepted
suitor he would be In a position to ask
her tn honor his wisls in this matter, Ai
It is I scarcely see what right he has to
demand that you break off an Interesting
friendship Just because he wanta all the
girl's time and attention. Even If shewert
In love with him she might in all loyalty
take a sympathetic Interest in your work.
If he will not listen to reason you will have
to settle the matter with yourself, decid
ing whether1 his Jealous and exacting friend
ship means enough to you to warrant yov
in giving up the girl's sympathy. Possibly
there is more to the story than I know. Ii
any event, go over the situation honestly
and frankly and then figure out what you
really want to do.
A Silly Little Girl.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I am II years old
and In love with a girl of 16 years, who
Is wearing a diamond given her by a
friends of mine who has gone to the front.
She does not admit being engaged to my
friend. She is also encouraging attention
from another friend.
Do you think It would be proper to tiro
pose to her I D.
Unless that diamond Is for a bethrothal
pledge, this little girl has no business to
be wearing such a gift. She seems to be
disloyal and you are ready to be equally
so. I don't think It Is proper for any young
man, to propose to a little girl of 16 years.
This particular little girl seems to be a
flirt and to be given to accepting rather
Imposing gifts to ssy the least. She ought'
to be thinking of her studies not of love
