Miss Snyder In Omaha
To Discuss Mrs. Learned's
New Patriotic Masque
' Furlough houses for the American
soldiers in France are to be erected
through the efforts of the General
Federation of Women's Clubs. Al
though we have not heard much of
this branch of war work in Omaha, a
number of benefits have been given
in Washington for the cause. These
cottages built behind the lines will
be "a little bit of Heaven" for the men
who have been granted short fur
loughs and here the horror of the
trenches may be forgotten in peace
and quiet, for a time at least.
Miss Dorothy Snyder, daughter of
Mr. Edgar C Snyder, Washington
'correspondent of The Bee, is spend
ing a few days in the city as the
guest of Mr. and Mrs. George B.
Eddy. Miss Snyder has come to con
fer with Mrs. Myron Learned, who is
writing a patriotic masque which will
be given in Washington during the
harvest time. Miss Snyder is staging
the masque and the proceeds are to
be given to the furlough house fund.
She was one of the earnest workers
for the general federation at the con
cert given in the capital city in May,
when several Metropolitan stars do
nated their services and the entire
proceeds were given to this fund.
Mrs. Learned's "Fantasie of the
Flag" will probably be given in the
Sylvan theater, which has the starry
dome of heaven for its roof and is
built beside the Washington monu
ment, one of the most beautiful lo
cations in Washington. This is the
only government theater in the Unit
ed States and it seems most fitting
that , this artistic playlet should be
given in Uncle Sam's own theater,
while the "box office receipts" will be
used to make the lives of our boys in
France a little brighter.
Another college' girl and young
officer have been added to the list of
Cupid's conquests, for Mr. and Mrs
J. O. Detweiler announce the engage
ment of their daughter, Helen, to Lt.
Frank Carpenter, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank W. Carpenter. The wedding
will not take place until after the
war, for the young lieutenant ex
pects to serve his country abroad
very soon, and his fiancee will return
to the university at Lincoln to com
plete her college course.
Miss Detweiler is one of the most
attractive of the younger girls and
her engagement is of great interest.
, She is a graduate of the Central High
school and will complete' her univer
sity course next June.
Lieutenant Carpenter is a graduate
f the law school of the Nebraska
University and a member of the Delta
Chi fraternity. He entered the first
officers' training camp at Fort Snell
ing, where he received his commis
sion of senior first lieutenant. Mr
Frank W. Carpenter is also in the
service of the government, for he
has been stationed in the Philippine
Islands for some time.
For French Countess.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles T. Kountze
entertained at dinner Monday eve
ning at their home in honor of Coun
tess Madeline de Bryas. Covers were
laid for nine guests. This attractive
young French woman is spending
such a short time. in the city that few
social affairs have been planned in
her honor. Miss May Mahoney will
entertain informally at her home this
evening following Countess de

A new magazine is being issued by
the American Red Cross for the sur-

army and its title is "Carry On." This
.magazine tells how the disabled sol
diers are being made to earn as much

Like the Petals of
By GERTRUDE BERESFORD.
WHEN nature decided to make
the most beautiful color in
the world, she chose the petal
of an orchid as her medium of ex
pressionpalest violet tinged with
pink. She sometimes repeats this
color at dawn, when the sun comes
over the rim of the earth. Most of us
waive the pleasure of witnessing that
event! There is, however, a shade
of orchid georgette crepe which
repeats the petals of an orchid and
the tinge of dawn. Every woman
in the world, regardless of her age,
weight or coloring, should have an
orchid crepe gown. Georgette
crepe requires little elaboration
to be a success. This model is
simply developed in that fabric.
Bands of tucks are inserted in the
tunic and form the collar and cuffs.
A bib and tiny apron of shadow
lace are attractive touches. The
girdle is of deeper orchid satin ribbon,
The word "autochir" Jhas been in
vented by Americans' in France to de
scribe an American motor truck train
carrying a special type of load to the
front. The first syllable is plain
enough; the second is from the word
"chirurgical," the old way of spelling
surgical. Combined they describe an
American Red Cross truck train of
eighteen camions carrying a knock-t
down form of tent hospital of 200
beds. One truck transports a complete
operating room ready to be bolted to
gether and put into operation in a few
min.ites. Its trailer is a sterilizing
room which is backed up against the
operating room structure, rrom this
trailer the nurse passes Bterilized in
struments and supplies to the sur
geons around the operating table. The
other trucks carry double tenting,
sturdy framework, floors in sections,
window frames, heating stoves and
full equipment for det kitchens. Ked
Cross construction crews specially
selected and trained for this work go
with the trucks, and within a very
short time after the first truck reaches
the selected point the wards are ready
to receive the patients.
Two more young women have re
ceived official notice of their accep
tance for Red Cross work abroad.
Miss Helen Louise Cornell of Omaha
will do canteen work over-seas, and
Miss Katheryn Sedwick of Lincoln
will be assigned to social service

"In the dresses of Spring and Summer
Shortness has been their strength.
But the dresses of Fall and Winter
Are adding an Inch to their length."
A buyer of ready-to-wear in one of
our large department stores says that
when on an eastern purchasing trip
she observed several fashionably
dressed women at The Ritz, whose
dresses were ankle length. "Every
well-gowned New York woman," she
says, "is now wearing her skirts not
more than five or six inches from the
Miss Izetta Smith, the pretty
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. M.
Smith, was seen at the Happy Hollow
club very jauntily attired in a black
slip-over sweater of soft Shetland
wool, purled at the waist line in
white, and also boasting an extra
ordinarily large white collar. With
this very stunning sweater she wore a
white linen skirt, and black silk stock
ings and white oxfords. I understand
the sweater came from a very fash
ionable Fifth avenue sweater shop.
Fringe as a trimming for dresses is
growing in favor. On a navy blue
serge frock, which was just taken
from its tissue wrappings yesterday,
was seen the heavy corded fringe such
as we use to associate with the up
holstered furniture of the mid-Victorian
Jersey is highly pleasing for cool
weather frocks. In one of our stores
was seen a beautiful array of these in
shades of Java, taupe, Joffre blue,
navy, mahogany and black. Most of
these were quite elaborately braided
in soutache, embroidered in heavy
harness stitching, or beaded. A few of
the dressier models are combined with
satin of a self-tone shade.
Great varieties of separate skirts for
fall are shown. These are slightly
longer than summer styles, reaching
the shoe-top at least, and in some
cases the ankle. They have the effect
Very recent arrivals in one of our
shops are gowns of black satin. One
very striking model noted had the
long Mandarin blouse effect, with the
new becoming, rounded neck. The
edge of this blouse was finished with
silk fringe a foot in depth.
Sixteen rows of tailored silk braid
on the edge of the Russian peasant
blouse of a blue serge frock gave it
a very handsome effect. Eight rows
of the braid finished each cuff, while
the round neck had but two. A slip
over sash added an air of nonchalance.
Bows of narrow fringed braid adorn
a blue serge dress.
RIGHT OFF THE REEL
Lillian Gish will star in David W.
Griffith's first Artcraft picture.
Bessie Love has designed a service
bar pin for women relatives of Ameri
can soldiers to wear.
Every "extra" thinks genius climbs
the steep stairs to success, while luck
goes up in the elevator.
A strong five-reeler depicting the
ravages of rum will make more con
verts than six Billy Sundays.
Francis Marion has written ten
Mary Pickford stories, all of which
have been screened by Paramount and
Jack Pickford, Paramount star, is
working for the government in two
ways. He's a sailor making tours for
the Liberty loan drive.
Marie Fagano, known because of
her famous' stunts before the camera
as being the rival of Rodman Law, is
a member of the cast of "The Judge,"
a World picture, featuring June El
vidge and John Bowers.
In "The Captain of the Grey1 Horse
Troop" Edith Storey- leaves the vil
lage wearing a straw .lid embellished
with cherries. Three years later s!.e
returns wearing the same bonnet, and
the cherries are still there. Hoover

Vernon Castle has volunteered to go
to France, along with other famous
artists, to entertain our soldiers who
are serving in the trenches.
Take Plenty of Time
If you eat too rapidly you are most likely troubled with
Indigestion and constipation. Eat slowly, masticate your
food thoroughly. Then when you feel dull and stupid after
eating, which shows that you have eaten more than you
should, take one of Chamberlain's Tablets to aid digestion.

By BEATRICE FAIRFAX.
I am just wild about golf, X
aren't you? Went out to the f
club yesterday with . Harald T
Stoner to play, and I will have X
to confess that he is a much f
better player than I am. I am
just learning, so, of course, you
wouldn't expect me to play as
well as a real professional. Dolly
Blake was there playing with
Captain Grainger. He sails
for "over there" next week, so I
see why Dolly is monopolizing
most of his time. I just wonder
if the captain likes her. I don't
see how he can help it, she is
such a dear, and so pretty and
stylish, too. Yesterday she wore
the best looking golf hat, just
splendid for keeping the sun off.
It was one of those "Salvation
Nell" shapes, with a very high
crown. It was made of green
satin, faced with white satin
with green printed polka dots.
A narrow band of that same ma
terial was around the crown.
Dolly looked very sweet in it. I
have never seen a better look
ing golf hat, have you?
New Flour Price for Omaha
Is Fixed at $9.89 a Barrel
Food Administrator Wattles has
advices from Washington announc
ing the new maximum mill price on
flour in car lots, f. o. b. Omaha. It
is $9.89, an advance over last year in
a sum that will just about amount to
the increase in the freight rates.
The price fixing this year, is on a
different plan than last year. Last
year millers figured the cost of oper
ation and then charged a net profit of
25 cents a barrel. This year the
country is divided into zones. In
the Omaha zone the maximum mill
price has been fixed at $9.89 a barrel,
this charge to include the cost -f
operation and the profit.
The new prices will be applied to
