in first aid and home nursing you
will not have to call a professional
nurse into your own home unless the
illness is a very serious case."

A war information service to aid
in Americanization will endeavor to
reach immigrants through foreign
language papers, priests and ministers,

to let them know where the bureau
is and what it does.
The bureau will explain draft regu

act, Liberty bonds and war savings
stamps, and such laws as affect aliens.
It will also give information concern
ing opportunities to learn English,
how to become naturalized, where to
volunteer for war service, and how
to get in touch with relatives in the
service. It will give information con
cerning the state council legal (Com

facilities of the community.

Work During Summer.
Dear Ull.a Fairfax, Omaha Be.: I h.v.
read In The Omaha Be. many questions
answered by you. Am now turning to you
for advice for myself. How old must a
child be before he or she quit, school? Can
they quit after they graduated from the
Eighth grade? Can a child work as a book
keeper or clerking in a store before she or
he Is 18 years of age? That Is In the
summer when there is no school? Is there
a chance for a young girl about 16 years
of age to go to France as a stenographer,
bookkeeper or something of that sort of
work very soon? Or must she wait till
she is 18 years old?
Ta it nil rieht fnr hfcrh ..Iiasi! wlrla
wear suits to school? Or does it nuke any
difference what age a girl is b.for. she
starts to wear suits, to school? I am asking
this because ttwre are little girls about
12 or 13 years old in the Eighth grade
wearing them. Thanking you In advanoe,
A boy or girl must be 16 years of ags
be for. they can stop school. It It not
allowable for a child under 16 years to
work In a store during the summer months
unless she has a permit from the Board
of Education. Sixteen years is too young
for any service in France and canteen work
ers are not accepted unless they are 2i
years of age.
A simple serge suit Is very good tast.
for a high school girl, but they seldom wear
suits before they are 15 or 16 years old.
Through an agreement of the jun
ior extension department. University
of Nebraska, services and advice of
the agricultural and junior argicul
tural leaders of the various counties
in the state will be available for the

work in "increased food production."
