A Day in June
Tells Women to Keep
Church Fires Burning
"Keep the church fires burnine as
well as the home fires church work
is army work now," Bishop Williams
cautioned women in an address Tues
day before the annual session of wo
men's auxiliaries of Nebraska Epis
More than 100 women were present
from out of town. The Winnebago
' Indian mission was represented by
little Miss Nettie Logan, an Indian
Mrs. A. P. Hopkins, Fremont, and
Mrs. Guy A. Brown, Lincoln, pioneers
of the organization, were among the
prominent guests. All he pledges for

Firemen Help Salvage Workers.
An S O. S. was sent to the fire
men from salvage headquarters Mon
day. The men didn't find any blaze,
but' the call was not a false alarm
by any means. If there were no an
gry flames to fight, there was real
work to be done. The salvage work
ers had suddenly acquired such a
tremendous amount of old papers and
magazines that they had to call for
help and they chose the firemen.
' Every day this week the blue uni-
- formed members of the Omaha fire
department have spent time sack
ing, weighing and helping sell the
papers. Between $75 and $100 ' is
realized every week from this work
alotie. Magazines bring three times
as much as papers. A large back
room is now in use at headquarters,
1409 Harney. It is often piled nearly
- as high as the ceiling with old papers
Pass On Good Work.
The Bee's report of the war work
done by the kindergarten children of
Saratoga school has interested an
out-of-town woman and she writes
for information about the black cats
made from old 'silk hose. These toys
'''have been made by schoolchildren for
Belgian orphans. Mrs. B. O. Krotter
of Talisade, Neb., has written asking
for a pattern for the cats, as she is
anxious to interest the school chil
dren in her town in the making of
these toys for French and Belgian
Sheriff Gives Jewelry

ney street, Saturday afternoon.
Sheriff Clark has just made a big
donation of valuables which he has

them without breaking the law is a
problem which confronts the salvage

College Women for Service
The committee on woman's war
work abroad of the Intercollegiate
Community Service association has
decided to form in its own member
ship the nucleus of an intercollegiate
unit committee, to which will be
added one woman from each college
or alumnae association which is pre
pared to furnish and finance one or
more members of a unit. Mount
Holyoke college has voted to raise
$4,000 to- send a member this sum
having been generally agreed upon as
necessary to cover the expenses of
one worker in addition to the amount
of relief she must do to justify her
presence in France.
"Letters have reached us from col
lege women all over the United
States, most of them indicating an
earnest and serious de,sire to help in
the work abroad," is the statement of
the committee. "Being fully con
vinced of the pressing need of work
ers, we feel that the appeal of these
women cannot be disregarded. They
ire eager and ready to go, and appear
willing to accept the same status and
regulations as those of the Smith col
lege relief unit, the only college unit
actually operating in the foreign field
"The term 'unit' must be understood
to indicate a single basis of organiza
tion in this country, and an agency
for financial resources, not a geo
graphicl limition of the work abroad.
The members must be prepared to
work as a body, or in small groups, or
as an individual wherever sent, while
still retaining their identity as mem
bers of the unit."
A call has come to the committee
from the women's overseas canteen
service department of the Young
Men's Christian association for a unit
of college women to do association
canteen work in France. The corn-
America was the first country
in the world to give formal of
ficial recognition to women in
the construction of its war ma
chine, and to recognize imme
diately, upon declaration of war,
its woman power as one of its
most valuable assets.
This recognition on the part of
the government was expressed
in the prompt creation of the
woman's committee of the
Council of National Defense.

mittee will select the personnel of
this unit and collect funds. Candi
dates for this group must be between
28 and 40 years of age, of excellent
health and character; they must enlist
for one yearj must pay their own ex
penses or be financed to the amount
of $2,000 a year, and must subscribe
to all governmental and association
"We are especially desirous that
graduates of the western, southern
and middle western colleges enter this
work," the committee states. "We
want all college women everywhere to
have a share in this splendid oppor
tunity. Smith college has already
former a canteen unit; Barnard and
Bryn Mawr are doing so, and Mount
Holyoke has ready a most desirable
candidate as a member, possibly as di
rector, of an intercollegiate canteen

cides to make a
lovely frock it is well
nigh impossible to
cheat it of this right.
Given half a chance,
this color and fabric
will become the sweet
est frock in the world.
A long "darn" stitch of
heavy pink floss works
up quickly into a back
ground for daisies out-1
lined in white beads on
this charming model.
Contrary to nature, the
centers are old blue.
This shade repeats it
self in the girdle old
blue with quite a dash
of green in the dye,
which brings it almost
to turquoise. The roll
collar and long rever
are of pink charmeuse
satin. The hem and
tucks are hemstitched,
and the floss and bead
embroidery is repeated
on the "camouflage"
apron. Pink grosgrain
ribbon on the hat
crown recalls the bas
ket weaving of kinder
g a r t e n days. The
broad brim may be of
georgette crepe or pink
straw. This frock, de
veloped in yellow and
worn with a yellow
leghorn, with crown of
old blue ribbon, would
be lovely. In either
color this dress is just
the thing for "brides
maiding" or for wear
on summer evenings.
Prepare to Can
In this month of May, just before
the canning period, take account of
stock, not only of your equipment,
the canner, et cetra, but of your jars,
your rubbers and the closet in which
the finished product is to be stored.
Have the closet as dry and cold as
Fruits or vegetables that are to be
canned must be fresh and not over
one day old if possible. Peas and
corn lose their flavor so rapidly that
they ought to be canned within four
hours of the time of cooking. Do not
waste any time on decayed fruit or
vegetables. The former can be put
up safely with sugar, as jam, by dis
carding the poor portions, but should
never be used for canning.
Go over the jars and rubbers. Do
not use rubbers which are sold with
jars, unless a known and tested
brand ij provided. Even so, it is bet
ter to purchase new rubbers, being
rery sure that the rubber of which
they are made will stretch slightly
without break or crack. An excellent
test that Good Housekeeping has
evolved consists in pressing the rub
ber between the thumbs and fore
finger of each hand with a slight pull.
If this pressure develops a soft,
spongv feeling in the rubber, discard
it. If it feels slightly granular and
firm to the touch, it will prove good.
Then, too, the jar must be carefully
examined to make sure that there are
no invisible nicks or cracks and that
the clamp oil the cover fits securely
