S THE men of the land take up the weapons of war,
l they leave the women to "carry on" the work of
civilization. Regiment after regiment of newly
recruited workers are marching forth daily to win the war
It is one thing to put the women of the land in im
portant industrial places. It is another to keep them
there. Physical fitness plays so important a part in
efficiency that ways and means to conserve strength for
the future must now be devised. - '
A local department store is among the first to solve
the problem. It has devised a plan which not only is ex
pected to "keep the doctor away," but is greeted with
great enthusiasm on the part of the girls.
" The other day a group of pretty, vivacious girls
dressed in attractive blue serge suits and modish black
hats climbed into an impromptu tally-ho, rolled away
from the hot, rushing, business districts, out into the
green fields where the troubles and tiredness is forgotten.
They were members of the first band of employes of
Burgess-Nash company who went out , to "Nashwood,"
the summer home of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Nash, to in
spect their own home, which is being erected just over
the hill from the rambling red and brown structure,
so familiar to motorists. .
They didn't bring their feminalls, which will be the
official uniform when the real season is on, sd' the christ
ening ceremony began by the guests making a raid on
the carpenters' . overalls. After that they toured the
grounds in a 1918 model wheelbarrow, investigated the
spreading branches of shady trees with an idea for ham
mocks and explored the bungalow.'
" Enthusiasm, of the kind only for young girls, a bij
weary from "releasing men for the front" know how to
register, attended the first glimpse of the big dormitory

"Washing up" in the place which bossies use for a
drinking cup isn't exactly like it's done "at the store,"
but when the trough is used by bossies brought from
far-away bonnie Scotland, it's a different matter. ;
It won't require much beyond the fresh air and the
scenery to "drive dull care away,"" especially since some
of the most care-free ones have taken joyfully to the in
formality and will set the pace for the more reserved.
It was a cozy group that scrambled over the grassy
slopes and amid the shrubs to gather kindling for the
campfiro when the gray smoke curled up in the silvery
moonlight, the first visitors at "Breezy Knoll" brought
out their letters with the legend, "With the colors," writ
ten across the top' and exchanged confidences about the
part big brothers and best friends are taking in the army
of freedom. ;,
Very shortly the last nails will be driven in the
charming summer home. Then every evening when the
bell sounds for closing,1 15 of the girls will go to Nash
wood, where supper will be waiting for them.
Imagine how much easier measuring yards and yards
of summer voile for an exacting purchaser will become
when the salesgirl has a vision of delicious sandwiches,
dainty salad and iced drinks set beneath the trees, await
ing 'hen at the v end of the day.' The girls will
spend the night in the country and in the morning the
big truck will bring them back about 10 o'clock, when
the busy shoppers begin to invade the various depart
ments. ' ' .' .
After "Breezy Knoll" is fully established it will be
arranged that the employes may spend their vacation
there,' a further war emergency measure in these days
of extravagant railroad fares. '
Sinae the outings, planned with an idea of giving to
the women every oppbrtunity for recreation and rest, are
entirely free to the guests, the venture, already so popu

The patriotic housekeeper must not
let one box of berries, one pint of
peas or one ear of corn go to waste
this year. Wasted foodstuff delays
victory. In order to release factory
canned goods for our righting men
we must store up an tne vegetans,
fruits and greens not needed for im

woman gathers quantities .of dande
lion greens, which she washes and
dries for winter use.
Manv npnnle have more garden
stuff than they can make use of and
others can't get or buy as much as
they need. As it is a crime to waste
anything edible, every one is urged
to sell all of their surplus to the
nearest grocer. If the grocer can t
handle these products, make an effort
to find a market for them among
those who have no gardens. If this
fails, telephone to Mrs. R. E. Winkel

conservation council, or to- Miss

hands each day in the week. :
Early Friday morning a company
of Red Cross canteen workers met a
troop train of soldiers passing from
Fort Logan, Colo., to Fort Snelling.
But, early as they came, a; devoted
father of one of the soldiers had ar
rived earlier. He had come from
Kansas City in response to a telegram
from , his boy stating he would pass
through Omaha. .
En route to the station, the father
had unfortunately been in an auto
mobile accident and was' in evident
pain from injuries to his foot, be
sides suffering from nervous shock.
"But just a few moments' chat wth
my boy will.be ample, payment for
what I have gone through," the father
told one of the canteen workers.
But, when the, train came, his boy
was not among thedOO or so khaki-
clad defenders of the nation. Some
