The regular meeting of the Oma
ha Ministerial Union was heM Mon
day morninsr in the Y. M. C- A.
building, but owing to a meeting of
the various Methodist churches of
the city, the attendance was not as
large as anticipated.

dent, C. N. Swihart; vice president,
H. G. Langley; secretary-treasurer
M. R. Weaver: executive commit

and W. O. Anderson, and E. B.
Taft, H. B. Foster and E. LReese
make up the steering committee.
Following the election of officers
Rev. C. F. Holler gave an interest
ing talk on "Preaching to Children."
Following this, Kev, b. t. Maner,
secretary of the church federation,
was called on for a short talk, and
spent several minutes in outlining
the work which he wishes to do
along the line of federation work
during the coming year. One of the
lines of work which he mentioned
is that which is being done in Little
Rock, Ark., Denver, and several
other, towns, wherein children are
given regular credit in the day
school for work done in the Sun
day school.
The following names were pre

Scores of Teachers
Resign Their Places
To Work for Uncle Sam
Teachers in the Omaha schools
are resigning taster tnan tneir
places can be filled, it was stated at
the meeting of the Board of Educa
tion last night. In the few weeks
since the present term started more
than 75 have resigned, several ad
ditional resignations and leaves of
absence were acted upon by the
board last night. Most of the teach
ers are taking war jobs, which pay
bigger salaries than teaching.
The board decided to cut out
the handbook, a pocket volume con
taining information about the
schools, teachers' names, etc. Print
ing this would cost more than $300
and, as the list of teachers is chang
ing rapidly all the time, the hand
book, it is , believed, would be of
little value anyway. '
One member brought up the sub
ject of when the board s meeting
room would be repaired. For sv
eral years the plaster has been
hanging from the walls, the roof
leaks and the wall paint has curled
up under the influence of weather
and temperature. The room looks
like the third act scene in "East
Lynne." The board, however.
laughed the subject down last night
and decided that the room is good
enough as it is. Thus do these men
suffer uncomplainingly in the cause
of education. "

Aliens Are Expected '
To Fight Amendment
At the Next Election
It is understood that many aliens
who have recently obtained their
first naturalization papers, intend to
vote against the constitutional
amendment, which, if carried, would
prohibit aliens voting on their first
papers, as has been the custom.
The records in the court house
show that there was an unusual
rush of applicants for first papers
between September 1 and October
5. Applications will not be consid
ered for a period of 30 days before
the election on November 5, which
is according to law.
Comparative figures showing first
papers granted since May 1 are as
follows May, 46; June, 50; July,
52; August, 94; September, 212;
October 1 to 5, 21.

INSTANTLY relieved with
Wants Sell Hat.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
Please advise me where I could sell
a pretty blue velvet hat, which 1
bought at; a certain store uptown
and they will not exchange, it for
me. I cannot afford to give U away,
so I thought I could sell it some
place so I could get what I gave for
it.. My sister purchased it for me,
but it is not a bit becoming. She
paid $6 for it, which I gave her.
I cannot give commercial ad
dresses In this column. . In any case
you will find It difficult to dispose of
a hat for what you paid for it, and
I doubt if it can be done unless some
of your friends want it
Write Good-Natured Letters.
Dear Miss Fairfax. Omaha Bee:
Some time ago a lonely soldier boy
got my name and wrote to me. They
were merely friendly letters, but I
have become interested in them. He
has not answered my last letter,
would it be all right to write him
and ask him the reason of his not
writing, or Just forget him?
Many causes might have prevent
ed .your receiving' a letter. If sta
tioned in this country, he might have
"flu," might have been transferred
or for some other reason been una
ble to write. If in France, he might
have been in battle and wounded.
Certainly, write again, but do not re
proach the boy for not writing.
Keep your letters friendly and good
natured so they will cheer and not
irritate your soldier friend. Re
member, the boys in the army like
to get letters, but they are under or
ders and not always able to respond
regularly. (
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee
My fiancee enlisted as an ambulance
driver about the middle of July. I
haven't heard from him since about
a week after he left.
Is there any way in which I can
find out if he has taken ill or some
thine has happened to him? If
there is please tell me where I can
write to find out about him.
If you heard from the young man
he must have told you to what post
he was sent At all army poets rec-
ords are kept of the destination of
men sent from there. Write to the
commander at tha post, giving the
number of the company, full name
of 'the man and any other informa
tion that might help trace him.
My Hat Diary
Carita Herzog
Katrinka Green I Yesterday T met
a young lady who possesses that
name but she was adorable regard
less. I met her at Mrs. Van Covct s
tea. She sat right next to me at the
table, very charming and exceeding-
ly pretty. She wore a striking hat
of black velvet, rather large and
drooping at the sides. The crown
was soft and on the side a lovely
black bird of paradise waved proud
ly. It was really a very stunning
hit and looked lovely on the charm
ing Katrinka Green. She was very
entertaining and could tell us many
interesting things as she had just
been to the different camps.
Women's Work
in War Time
Does He Love Her?
Dear Miss Fairfax," Omaha Bee:
I am a young girl 20 years old. A
young man has proposed to me. He
is known to be quite a flirt, but he
has always forgotten other girls.
However, he was away two weeks
and wrote to me quite often, so I
don't think he regards me as the
others. He is always real 'affection
ate and shows his love in many
ways. He Insists on tickling me un
der the chin. Miss Fairfax, will you
please tell me the significance of
that? Do you think I should-thlnk
of marrying before the war Is over?
I have not accepted his proposal
yet so I don't know Just what our
relationship toward each other
should be. Do you think it proper
for him to hold my hand or kiss me
goodnight? As I am quite fond of
him, I wouldn't care, but I don't
want to do anything wrong. How
much do electric Irons cost? Do you
know where I can buy a second
Because his affection lasted two
weeks is no sign that it will be per
manent. If you doubt him, give him
plenty of time to prove himself. ' Be
ing "real affectionate" is no sign of
love. In fact, It is very apt to mean
Just the opposite. If he had a deep
and genuine respect for you the
young man would not tickle you un
der the- chin. The only thing of
which I know such a thing is a sign
is extremely bad manners.
As to marrying before the war is
over, that is something to be decided
according to circumstances. Tou
do not even say whether the young
man is a soldier or not. As a gen
eral rule, I should say, wait until the
war is over, and in your casd you
surely should, as you are not even
sure the young man loves you.
In the meantime do not allow the
liberties you mention; they are not
wrong, but unwtee.
A good electric iron costs about 1 5.

silent story of a son or brother who
has made the supreme sacrifice. But
will folds of crepe and mourning ap
parel be worn by Omaha mothers,
who have sacrificed their sons on the
altar of Freedom?
In England mourning is never
seen and in all probability the
American wives and mothers will
wear only the tiny gold star as an
outward mark of their sorrow.
Omaha matrons who have been thus
bereaved have none of them adopted
the conventional mourning costume
for one seesthem every day, hurry
ing to their many war duties,
gowned in their usual tailored
dresses. Dark colos, to be sure,
but never the sombre black that de
notes sorrow. The depressing ef
fect on others caused by seeing their
friends in deep mourning cannot be
measured in mere words. A well
known Omaha woman whose son
was recently killed in action, over
seas, is not wearing black, neither
does her attractive daughter, who,
before their bereavement, was very
prominent in the affairs of the
younger set.
Still another Omaha mother re
ceived the crushing news not long
ago of her son's death while in the
air service. Shs, too, is adhering to
the request of oar government and
is her usual.'cheeriul self, her beauti
ful little pin with i.'s gold star in a
consnicuous dace o.n her tailored
coat of dark blue, iw a far away
army camp the brilliant son of a
prominent family succumbed to the
deadly disease of pneumocia. and
both his mother and sister have not
altered their mode nor color of dress.
"Back our boys with bonds, not
crepe," seems to be the slogan of all
patriotic women in these sorrowiui

to make hnal reports, ended the
meeting with a discussion of plans

Thousands Have .Discovered
i Dr. Edwards Olive Tablets
h areaHarmlessSubstitute
' Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the sub
stitute for calomel are a mild but sure
laxative, and their effect on the liver is
almost instantaneous. They are the re
sult of Dr. Edwards's determination not
to treat liver and bowel complaints with
calomel. His efforts to banish it brought
out these little olive-colored tablets.
The pleasant little tablets do the good
that calomel does, but hsve no bad after
effects. They don't in jure the teeth like
strong liquids or calomel. They take
hold of the trouble and quickly correct it.
Why cure the liver at the expense of the
teeth? Calomel sometimes plays havoc
with the gums. So do strong liquids. It
is best not to take calomel, but to let Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets take its place.
Most headaches, "dullness" and that
lazy feeling come from constipation and
a disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets when you feer"loggy"and
"heavy." Note how they "clear"clouded
brain and how they "perk up" the spirits.
