in the next draft contingent and Mrs.
Murphy has received her honorable
discharge from the Red Cross author

THIS is the season when every-
thing assumes an air of festivity.
Flowers, pretty girl graduates
and a chiming of wedding bells are in
the distance. In our shops the
same spirit is reflected in the lovely .
things to wear which are on display; ,
The blouses are so frilly and dainty, j
the one-piece dresses are so striking, '
and already the sports clothes are tak--,
ing a prominent place on the fashion
Without a one-piece dress you are
non est this spring, but with so many
lovely models from which to cho6se,
the task should not be hard.. Dark
blue is a very favorite shade, but one
particularly smart model in black
georgette had a wee little white vest
and for the touch of color a smart '
little flat bow of blue with long '
streamers, which fell below the waist.
New Japanese materials are fasci
nating and the gowns seem to breathe
of cherry blossoms and sandal wood,
they are so cool and dainty. You
must have one jersey cloth dress in
your wardrobe. They are just the
thing for a morning's shopping, and "
so pretty with their contrasting
shades of sand and Llue. Of course,
the white net dresses are here, flutter
ing on their hangers like somany
butterflies, and, with the wide girdles
of pink and blue, thev will transform
any girl into a veritable wild rose. '
Such a lovelj little evening gown of
white net is being shown with a cun
ning overskirt of apple green taffeta;
the sleeves arc short and full and a
wide collar of white net edged with
frilling completes this little debutante 1
For the Kiddies.
The kiddies are not forgotten this
spring. Their little poke bonnets are
lovely pink and blue frames for baby
faces, with a wee rosebud here and
there. And who can pass by the cun
ning little frocks with their pink and'
blue smocking and pockets ever so
small I The sturdy little tan boots and
white slippers are ever so pretty and
the silk coats so much like grown-up
Gingham Handkerchiefs. ,
Do you know that the gingham '
fever is now reflected in even hand- '
kerchiefs? You may find one that '
will just match your gown, for they
are just as plaid as they can hi in
both linen and silk. '
Arm Band for Women.
An official arm band is the latest
insignia for women doing war service.
All Wisconsin women doing war work
under the direction of the woman's
committee, Council of National De
fense whether state, county or local
will be urged to wear it while on
duty. The band will be of khaki-colored
cotton cloth, with the Wisconsin
coat of arms and the words "Council
of Defense" embroidered in colors. It
will be sold at cost.
The khaki arm band is the first
recommendation of a special state
committee which has been working on
the i problem of distinguishing form,
of dress for the Council of Defense
women. It is now considered the
recommendation of a standardized
form of dress, a regulation uniform
being deemed impracticable.
American Nurses A ids
Forty-eight women have been sent .
to France as nurses' aids by the:
American Red Cross, according fo
Miss Jane Delano, director of the
department of nursing of the Ameri-.
can Red Cross. These aids are vol
unteers, and more than half -cf them
have paid their own expenses. v;
"Twenty-nine nurses' aids were
sent over prior to February, 1918," is -the
statement of the department of
nursing. "All are doing work with
the children's bureau. Four more
sailed on March 30, all assigned to
the children bureau. On April 3 a
group of 11 sailed, four for canteen
work and seven for the children's
bureau. Four sailed on April 20, two
for canteen work and two for the
children's bureau. Another group will
sail early in May. This group is not
completed yet, and it is difficult at
the present time to say how, many
will compose it probably about. 10.
Some of these will do canteen work
and others will be assigned to U
children's bureau. .
"All of these nurses' aids have nsi
the preliminary courserin elementary
hygiene and home care of the sick,
and the further preparation of not less
than 72 hours in a hospital approved
by the Red Cross."
