. Bat, already we are hearing rumors
of "twilight hops" and "sunset din
ners." It really doesn't require shaded
lights to make a dinner table attrac
tive. What could be lovelier than a
pay little party on the porch of one
of the clubs chatting over the first
course with the friendly sun just nod
ding good night to them with a few
last golden rays as he disappears over
the hill? And in the soft twilight of
a summer evening, with a little jazz
music and an officer or two or more,
what could be more alluring?
We are wondering who will give the
first twilight dance in Omaha.

Near Fort Crook
"Camp Brewster," the Young Wo
men's Christian association summer
camp for business girls, will be form
ally opened this, evening, when 70
soldiers from Fort Crook will be
honor guests. The picturesque camp,
situated on Fort Crook boulevard,
was named in honor of Miss Clara
Brewster, gymnasium instructor and
founder of the colony.
Gapies, music and refreshments for
the soldiers have been planned by
the "D. T. A." girls. The champ
erons will be Mesdames C. J.
Hubbard, Charles Offutt and C. K.
Smith, who are members of the sum
mer camp committee.
The boarding guests will begin to
arrive Thursday, and a public recep
tion will be given at the camp June 29.
jOver 350 guests attended the spring
breakfast given at the Young Wo
men's Christian association this
morning. Roses, bridal .wreath and
snowballs decorated the tables.

It has been many years since child
ish voices have been heard at the
commanding officer's quarters at Fort
Crook, but now the wide stairs echo
the patter of tiny feet and Colonel
Abner Pickering tosses one sunny
haired kiddie to his shoulder, holding
two others by the hand as he comes
up on the porch after a day filled
with complex military duties.
The three grandchildren of Colonel
Pickering are now making their

girls, Captain Mahin, of the infantry,
is now in France.
Mrs. J. K. Pickering and daughter.
Ciane, are also members of the com
manding officer's family, since Cap

corps is also serving in France.
Mrs. Mahin wears a service pin,
which attracts attention wherever she
goes, for six stars are emblazoned
on the blue ground. The pin was
made to order and Mrs. Mahin's sis
ter, Mrs. Smith, who is now living
at Fort Sam Houston, also wears one.
The six men in the service represent

two brothers, Captain Pickering and
Lieutenant Colonel Pickering of the

French Motor Unit of
New York City Club
The problem of getting 7,500 gal
lons of gasoline and 200 gallons of
motor oil to France the amount
necessary to operate eight trucks for
six months-was successfuly solved
by the motor unit of the New York
Women's City club. "It had to be
solved," said Mrs. Ernest Thompson
Seton, chairman of the war service
committee of the club, "for our
trucks had to have the gasoline and
France could not furnish it."
The7 trucks for which these supplies
were needed were the eight trucks
sent to France by Le Bien-Etre du
Blesse woman's motor unit of the
New York Woman's City club.
"These trucks are of the lorrie type,"
writes Mrs. Seton, "with canvas cover
over the ribs, on a Tord chassis, extra
heavy springs, extra equipment, paint
ed Grench gray, as the unit has been
accepted into the French army. Eight
trucks have been shipped and 10
women chauffeurs qualified, represent
ing an expenditure ion the basis of six
months' maintenance of nearly $30,
000. Mrs. Cyrus W. Field has had
charge of the motors and chauffeurs'
tests; Mrs. Robert T. Morris has ex
amined the chauffeurs for French.
, "The first two trucks sent over are
now operating" in Paris, carrying sup
plies from the warehouse to the diet
kitchens; and probably by now the
next two trucks are carrying the hot
food: from the diet kitchens to the
first-ajd dressing stations on . the
French front." "

Gardens in Right
Line of Defense
"Liberty Gardens" is a term which
will be heard many times 'in the next
few years throughout the land. The,
Council of National Defense, the
woman's committee, and the Depart
ment of Agriculture have launched
a plan for production which will not
be hit or miss, helter-skelter and 'un
thinking. They emphasize the tre
mendous need for increased produc
tion of vegetables and advise the na
tion's gardeners at work in America
this summer to be guided by one
uniform plan and to work for one
The difference between the Liberty
Garden and the old-fashioned gardens
is that the Liberty gardener signs a
pledge to plan, plant and care for his
patch under the supervision of a com
munity garden director.
One of the interesting features of
the plan is to secure through the
councils the appointment of full time
and, where necessary, salaried direc
tors in every town of a population
of more than 10,000. There will be
several demonstration gardens pro
vided in different parts of the munici
pality where practical demonstrations
of methods can be given.
There will be a "Liberty" list of
all local gardeners, who enroll to
work under the plan approved by
headquarters, with such modifications
as local conditions make necessary.
The overambitious garden is to be
avoided. A sagacious system of well
planned planting will result in more
food for a given amount of work.
The woman's committee has in
charge several features of the scheme,
the first being the pledge, which must
be signed at the beginning of the sea
son, by prospective gardeners. An
other is a record card, on which every
gardener is to make a report of his
summer's progress. Through these
records it will be possible to benefit
from his summer's experience when
making plans for 1919.
The plan fits in with that of the
Bureau of Education, indorsed by the
president. School teachers may also
be taught gardening "by these di
rectors, so that those volunteering to
teach home gardening to their school
students will be better qualified.
Wheatless Week to Be Observed.

The Old Loveliness
Old books, old friends are best,
Old things are loveliest;
Old houses, and the glamour of old days,
The olden peace, the olden, quiet ways.
Old gospels and old dreams!
Wrth new delight life teems
When these are read, when these are told;
All youth at last grows old. .
In bleak December, lot
A whirlwind of -white snow.
O heart! lost April then
Seema wonderful again.
Tet dream new dreams, be glad
For all the soul once had.
Old books, old friend are best
Old love Is loveliest!

Advice to N
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
Entertaining Young People
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I ant
coming to you for advice. Ia It proper
for a girl to dance"rlth her hat on T
What could I do to .entertain young people,
ai we have no music? How should a library
scarf be used? Should the library table
set In the middle of the house? I hope to
see this In The Bee. Thanking you for ad
vice, I remain
Cedar Bluffs. B. H.
One does not wear their hat as a ruls
at a dance, but very often If the dance la
an Informal one or at one of tha country
cluba the girls do wear their hats.
It Is a little hard to entertain young peo
ple without music, but do you play cards T
I think nearly everyone enjoya a good ead
game. Aa the summer months come' and
the evenings are long why not plan a
moonlight picnic? Wenle roasts are al
ways popular and corn roasts too, a little
later In the season are a Jolly way to spend
an evening out-of-doors.
A library scarf should be used on ths
library table which 1 usually placed In th.
middle of the living room or at one side.
Visiting a -Soldier.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I havw
been a silent reader of your "advice to the
lovelorn" for quite a while and now I WTite
to you for advice. My lover, who is a sol
dier boy, is In a training camp many miles
from me. He is unable to get a furlough to
come and see me. He expects to leave for 4
France soon and he wants me to come and
visit him for a few days before he goes
across. He says, he thinks it would be all
right, but I don't know whether It Is the
correct thing to do or not. I have no one
to go with me. He Is a very nice young
man and would not ask me to do anything
that he thought was not right. I haven't
seen him for over six months, but hs
writes every , few days. We are engaged
and he has asked me to marry him before
hfl kops. We love each other dearly and t
want to see him very much. Please advise
me Miss Fairfax, as to what I should do.
If there Is a hostess house near the camp
where your fiance Is stationed, I should not
hesitate to visit him. Hers you may stay
and enjoy his company In pleasant sur
roundings. You will find a motherly
woman in charge of the hostess house who
will be glad to help you In any way and
she Will act as your chaperone during your
stay. It was for this purpose that these
hostess houses were built by the Young
Women's Christian association that the
mothers and friends of our soldiers could
visit them at the cantonments.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: I reaa
your advice to the "Lovelorn" In The Oma
ha Bee and I thought I would ask you fos
advice. I received a letter from a young
man who has to go to war. He Is In the.
training camp now. In his first letter to
me he sent Ills picture and he Is not bad
looking. In his second letter he asked ma
to send htm my picture and I have never
seen him or heard from him before. But I
have a cousin that knew him. They wers
in the samo training camp together, but
my cousin has gone to France now. The
main question I wanted to ask you was
about sending him my picture. Would you
Bend It to him or not? When he sent me hi
he said that he would send it Just to bs
friendly, and he wants mine now. I do
not know whether to send it to him, not
knowing him, or not. Will you please writs
me and let me know by return mall, be
cause I want to know before he write,
I wouldn't send this young soldier a pic- -ture.
Write him a friendly letter or twe
If you hlnk-lt will cheer him' a little.
Perhaps after you know him better yoa
can send some homemade" candy. Nothing
pleases these homesick soldiers quite so
much and as you cousin knew and liked
him I think it Would be perfectly proper.
Explain the Matter. v ,
Dear Miss Fairfax. Omaha Bee: I want
your advice, as I don't feel like deciding
this question that is confronting me, my
self. I went with a youhg man a few time.
and I gave him the Impression that I
didn't like him. At least, I know hs took
it that way. But I did. and he never
called since the night I let him go home,
making him think I was, cross at hire, and
And I want to know if It would be all
right to write him a little brief note, tell
ing him that I'd like to have him call
p, s. And where could I find out wher.
a certain young man Is that went In the
draft fronv Fremont, but resided In Grand
Island at what camp, I mean.
If you fe'el that you are m tha wrong
I would write the young man a friendly
note explaining the affair and aaklng him
to ealU Write to the exemption board
authorities at Grand Island for Informa
tion regarding your friend. In all prob
ability he Is at Camp Funaton,
Dear Mlsa Falrfa. I am hopelessly
love with a handsome sailor boy. He hai
recently gone away and haa not wrlttei
to me. Also, he did not pay enough atten
tlon to me when he was here. I paltf bin
very much attention and he did not recipro
cate, although he told my friends ho like
me. Please tell me what to do. I am heart
'roken. Hoping you will answafsthis aa soon as
poFsible, I am, yours, MISS K.
I am afraid, Miss R., you must havs
kl'led your handsome sailor boy with kind- ,
ncss. Men, alas! are often wooed and woi
In spite of their most valiant efforts, but H
takes considerable art to conceal these
processes. And the man likes to preserve
th. Illusion that he la doing th. courting,
even though he .has moments of vision la
which he knows that It Is beyond him.'
The next time you take a fancy for yoa'
are really not heartbroken don't "pay hint
very much attention." Let him do this, and
try to preserve a discreet attitude! of re
ceiving his addresses, gracefully.
