War to Teach Reclamation
The reclamation of the energies of
all the disabled of the nation may be
taught by the exigencies of war, ac
cording to Major Harry E. Mock, M.
R. C, who in addressing the Nationa'.
League of American Pen women,
"There are in the United States
600,000 persons who have been dis
abled in industries probably more
than the total number of soldiers who
will be disabled through this war
yet neither government nor industry
has hitherto made thorough effort to
reclaim their energy. That is a great
lesson this -war has taught us, and
when we have won it we will find
that, through deaths, a cessation of
immigration, and other causes, we
shall face a great shortage in the labor
market We shall then turn our at
tention to the reclamation of all the
disabled, and thus our country will
profit by the labor of all her sons and

Belgian Heroes Rip
Off Brass Buttons
For Omaha Girls
"Can you read French?" "What did
he mean when he said, 'tres jolie?'"
With a perfect barrage fire of these
questions the French and Belgian
heroes of the war had the time of
their lives the depot Thursday
evening with a bevy of blue-veiled
Red Cross canteen girls hovering
around them. When they couldn't talk,
they smiled, and many a souvenir did
they leave behind. Brass buttons
were ripped off uniforms with sturdy
jack knives and dropped into the
pretty palm of Miss Omaha, who
remembered enough of her college
French to say, "mcrci, beaucoup."
Miss Mona Cowell was deeply en
gaged in conversation with a fierce
looking warrior who proudly wore the
skull and crossbones medal given by
Kerensky, testifying to the fact that
he belongs to the famous Legion of
Death. When it was explained to this
trenchman that the pretty girl who
was standing by his side would sail
for France to do canteen work, his
face lighted up, and putting out his
hand he congratulated her in his best
French and complimented her on her
willingness to do such a big part
Miss Gertrude Kountze, in her mili
tary cape, was quite the belle of the
occasion, and she is the proud pos
sessor of a photograph of one of the
men, to say nothing of numbers of
addresses and brass buttons galore.
"All aboard," was heard, and the
men and girls realized that "au
revoir" time had come. The at
tractive canteen workers scrambled
up on a huge truck standing by the
tracks and there they stood, wav
ing goodby and smiling "God speed"
until the train vanished around the
curve, bearing its load of smiling,
waving soldiers, their hearts gladden
ed by the wonderful reception tender
ed them in the Gate City.

Young Omahan in First

Of France in Outlook
Hawthorne. Daniel, a former
Omaha man, and member of The Bee
staff, has written an article on France,
which appeared in the Outlook dur
the last two weeks. In an English
class at Wellesley college not long
ago this article was recommended to
the members of the class as the most
authentic description of France yet
What a coincidence that an Omaha
girl. Miss Eleanor Carpenter, should
be in the class when the instructor
referred to the article by an Omaha

WE ARE REJOICED TO FIND HOOVER, THE CHEMISTS AND
LEADING FOOD SPECIALISTS IN ACCORD WITH OUR
IDEAS ON THE FOOD VALUE OF CANDY.
Food Value Chart No. 13, Page 11, contains these words: "It is a
well known fact of common knowledge that Nuts are very high in
food value, those used principally in manufacturing confectionery
being almonds, filberts, pecans, peanuts and walnuts, averaging
approximately 1,500 Calories per pound." Again: "Scientists
have demonstrated by careful experiments that during violent ex
ercise or exhausting labor, that the sugar in the blood is heavily
drawn on to supply the body with the necessary fuel, hence the
longing for "something sweet" which can be readily assimilated."
You might think you were listening to an extract from a letter from
one of our boys "Over Yon" about "Cobb's" we have many such
in our files. Brigadier General L. W. Waller of the United States
Marine Corps, referring tq the food value of chocolate, says: "I
never went into a campaign without my chocolate. MEN FIGHT
LIKE THE DEVIL ON CHOCOLATE. IT IS PARTICULARLY
GOOD IN HOT WEATHER." WONDER IF HE WAS REFER
RING TO COBB'S? COBB'S CANDY threatens to make Omaha
famous. Telephone Douglas 51 if you cannot come down Satur
day. Say COBB'S, PLEASE.
