Athletic Club's Opening
Takes Place of Ball on
By royal decree, King Ak hat de
prived his loyal subjects of the coro
nation ball and the social prospects
began to look dull gray, indeed. But
with the opening of the new Athletic
club, the gray clouds are tinged with
rose and we will scarcely miss the
usual crowning of the king and queen
in the midst of all the festivities.
A very important committee meet
ing took place Tuesday at the new
club when the plans for the formal
opening were discussed. The men
will give us only a hint of the details
and they laugh tantalizingly when
questioned. We have visions of a
very formal dinner dance, however,
and it is safe to say that every Oma
ha matron and maid will perhaps plan
a filmy new gown in spite of war
Mr. John C. Wharton did tell Melli
ficia that the grand opening will last
for a week and special features have
beep planned for every evening. All
summer we have been hearing of the
beauties of the new club, visions of
cozy tea rooms, sparkling pools, and
stately ball rooms, have been filling
our minds and now in the cool, Octo
ber days the great doors are to swing
Many women have been heard to
regret that there is to be no ball, for
we all know that "all work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy," but with
a prospect in view of a whole week
of jollification, how can one feel sad?
Home-Made Cookies for Soldiers.
Pie-filled to their utter satisfaction,
soldiers stationed hereabouts are now
to be provided with all the home -
made cookies they can eat. An open
jar, "mother's cookie jar," will be
placed in the Khaki club and it is the
purpose of girls of the ( Lafayette
club, one of the Patriotic League
clubs, to keep the jar always full.
Realizing the enormity of the task,
they have called on girls of all the
other patriotic clubs to assist them.
The first "cookie day" waits only the
procuring of a large enough jar.

Wisconsin State Library association,

will make and sell "Annette and Rene
tin" charms and give all the money to
the little French girl who lives in the
land where Annette and Renetin do
tight wire dancing and are said to
have the nimblest feet in all of France.
These charms of silk and yarn enable
the wearer to dance out of harm's
way as easily as Annette and Renetin
dance across the wires at the Follies
Berger in Paris.
Five dollars worth of these little
manikins were sold at the warehouse
Tuesday morning. Workers plan a
Christmas box for their new ward

as "Parriens" to the war orphan, as

Being very Interested in your advice
column, I come to you with my trou

young man, who afterwards came to
see me quite often; he claimed to
think a great deal of me.
About six months after our meeting
I went away to business school. Dur
ing the school term this young man
came to see me quite often and would
take me to shows, and several times
he took me to dinner. I grew very
fond of him and, in fact was much
in love with him.
One day some busybody told him
something, whether it concerned me
or just what I could never find out,
nor even find out who the person was
that told It, but after that he did not
come to see me, nor even write to me.
If I met him on the street he would
speak, but never stop to talk with me.

He looked carefully at the pistols.
"They are not loaded," he said. "Put
them on the box."
Peggy piled the weapons on top of
what had been her prison cell.
"Line up," shouted Billy to the
tramps and they quickly formed a
row. The shotgun was getting heavy
for Billy Belgium and he rested the
barrel on a tree stump, keeping the
muzzle pointed so menacingly at the
tramps, however, that they did not
dare lower their hands.

Aren't you taking a good deal for

you? It would seem impossible that
a young man, if he really cared for
you, would take the word of some
third person without giving you a
chance to defend yourself unless he
had reason to believe it to be true.
