Pastes Kaiser in Face
For the Red Cross
"Paste the kaiser in the face I Only
5 cents to paste him in the face!"
This is the slogan Columbian
school pupils have adopted to raise
money for the Red Cross.
They not only havt the slogan,
but thev out the deed into action.
The children spent all day pasting
the "beast of Berlin in the lace.
How do they do it?
Well, they grot the idea from the
naval recruiting station. A large
picture of the kaiser was hung on
the wall and small pieces of adhesive
squares were provided. Each child
who contributed S cents was given
a chance to paste a square right on
the kaiser s face.
. Ensign Condict of the naval re
cruiting station started the game in
Omaha last week' by permitting each
recruit to sign his name on a slip of
paper and paste :t on the kaisers
Miss Mina Doyle, principal of Co
lumbian school, reported great diffi
cult in obtaining a large enough
pieture of the kaiser to give the sev
eral hundred children in the school
the opportunity each so richly de
sired. Newspaper offices, moving pic
ture film companies and sign posters
were appealed to before the picture

Southern Girls Can Game
,. arge quantities of meat, game,
r-jbits and sea food that formerly
went to waste are now added to the
food stocks of the country by south
ern girls, who are canning them ac
cording to methods taught by the
! Department of Agriculture. The re
port of the Home Demonstration and
Canning Club Work in the IS south
ern states show that between AWX),
000 and 3,000,0000 girls are taking the
instruction, the course including the
making of bread with wheat-flour
substitutes and war emergency fea
tures. The girls put up last year 3,
882,738 containers of food, the value
of which was $1,511,048, all of these
products having been grown on the
one-tenth-acre plot which each is re
quired to cultivate. '
Home canning of meats and fish
and other sea foods has been espe
cially emphasized. In the preserving
of meats the importance of saving
every part of the, slaughtered animal
for food has been taught. Much
game has been put up, and old pig
eons and old chickens have been
made into appetizing dishes. Thou
sands of jack rabbits as well as com
mon rabbits, have been canned and
added to the country's meat supply,
as have also wild ducks and geese
along the gulf and Atlantic coasts.
Oysters, crabs, clams and shrimps
have been canned in Florida and
other southern states possessing a
large fish supply.
Connecticut's Junior Food
Connecticut's junior food army of
the committee of food supply prom
ises to exceed the desired quota, ac
cording to the State Council of De
fense. The boys of Riggs school at
Lakeville, Conn., have joined the
food army in a body, every student
signing up for the required work in
addition to the task of running the
175-acre farm which the schol main
tains. According to estimates made in
Scotland and quoted by the Connecti
cut State Council of Defense as an
encouragement for enlistment in the
food army, one acre of ground, when
planted with potatoes, provides food
for one man 1,500 days; when planted
in wheat, 700 days; when planted with
oats, 470 days.
Will H. Hays, the new chairman of
the republican national committee,
urges that women take part in poli
tics to the fullest extent.

Red Crqss Chairman No. iq
MRS. O. W. HENDEE.
An enviable record for Red Cross work is held by Mrs. O. W. Hendee,
who has never missed one meeting since her auxiliary, the Clifton Hill unit,
was established In the early part of the war. She has also censored all the
surgical dressings and hospital garments before they were turned into head
quarters for the final inspection.
The workers meet Tuesdays in the parlors of the Clifton Hill chnrch.
They are 75 strong and have completed about 10,000 articles. Mrs. Hendee
counts among her activities her work as ward chairman for the present Red
Inspired by her mother's good example, Miss Rhea Hendee, a student at
Nebraska university, is taking a Red Cross course in surgical dressings and
hospital garments. She is captain of the team and will likely be enrolled in
her mother's auxiliary during the coming vacation.
Red Cross Auction
and Vaudeville Tonight
At the Henshaw
Rivalry is keen among the small
groups of Red Cross workers who are
staging the various features with
which to extract donations, large and
small, to bring Nebraska's quota to
the required mark.
Women who have worked at the
Henshaw hotel tooth think they have
absolutely the prize offering to give
the public this evening. Besides the
regular dance, they have secured the
services of the vaudeville artists who
are playing the season's closing bill
at the Orpheum.
After these footlight favorites re
peat their professional acts and give
some patriotic numbers, there will be
a grand auction of a whole table full
of beautiful gifts, including a hand
crocheted bedspread, a boudoir cap
and a gold picture frame.
The usual cover charge of 25 cents
a person will be given by the hotel.
The workers will be costumed as Red
Cross nurses. Mrs. A. S. Ritchie is
in charge. Her committee includes
Mesdames M. T. Coakley, ti. M.
Larrabee and M.V. Porter.
Working Mothers Imperil
Infant mortality is closely related
to women in industry, according to
opinions of trained investigators, who
are preparing to safeguard human life
during the period of war-time de
mands on labor. '
Dr Jessica B. Peixotta, head of the
department of child welfare of the
woman's committee, Council of Na
tional Defense, believes that mothers
should be kept in the homes as far as
possible. She discourages day nurser
ies, because of the greater danger of
contagion when many children are to
gether and for the reason that nurser
ies tempt needy women to wean their
children in order to enter wage-earning
"You can not save babies if you
can not give mothers' advantages,"
Dr. Peixotto declared in discussing
the conservation of child life at the
conference of chairmen of the com
mittee's department of women in in
dustry. Mrs. Arthur M. Dodge, who repre
sented Connecticut at the conference,
said that the day nursery is "an emer
gency expedient only justified by the
nation's crisis." The Illinois com
mittee on forign-born women in in
dustry made an investigation of 46
mothers employed at night in the Chi
cago stockyards, and Mrs. Raymnod
Robins, chairman of the Illinois de
partment, reported that, after a care
ful sifting of facts, four packing firms
agreed to prohibit night work for
mothers with children of school age.

Detroit, Mich., May 24. The
world's knitting record is
claimed by Mrs. Fred Springer
of Detroit, who yesterday won
the knitting contest conducted
here by the Red Cross, in which
more than 700 women took
part. In two hours Mrs. Sprin
ger completed 21 inches of a
man's sock the leg, heel and
three-quarters of the foot. Mrs.
Nathan H. Jewett, head of the

Substitutes for Bread
It la In utilizing savory and pleasant sub
stitutes for bread that the real skill of a
cook lies. The Turks use pilaff, made In three
or four ways, where we pay a high price
for, bread, potatoes and fresh vegetables.
It can be made of rice, wheat, or, In fact,
of almost any grain. The trick Is to cook the
grain In an enameled ware kettle, which
allows slow cooking, and use soup stock
Instead of mere water. This stock need not
be ordinary chicken or meat stock, but can
be made like vegetable soup, or a mixture
of vegetables and herbs and a little meat or
gravy, or the bones of a roast. Macaroni is
good when cooked In the same way; so are
peas and beans. The little piquant flavor
given by the herbs and the savory smell
thereof, will make such a dish acceptable
to anyone who likes turkey stuffing, and

The festive strawberry has reached
the apex of its season's goodness as
well as of its plentifulness. Now is the
time to make it into pies, shortcake
and other good things, care being ex

cooks to use as much near-flour as
possible in the crust. Big boxes' sell

to be plentiful for some weeks.

City with its 600,000 inhabitants

In an article by Chloe Arnold in the
Red Cross Magazine for June she has
shown these people bound together
by their interest in Red Cross work.
