Need Girls Who Speak
In a recent issue of the Official
Lnited States Bulletin, published
daily in Washington, is the follow
ing appeal to girls who speak the
Czecho-SlovakJanguage. It should
be especially interesting to Nebras
ka, which has the widest distribu-'
tion of people of Czecho-Slovak ori
gin of any state in the union.
"To help in reconstruction work
among the Czecho-Slovaks, Poles,
and Russian peoples, theAmerican
Red Cross is training groups of
young women who speak the lani
guage of these countries. The Red
Cross will recruit and train these
ycung women, in co-operation with
the war' work council of the Young
Women's Christian association, and
existing reconstruction committees.
"Thai the need for such units is
great is shown by the fact that in
the Czech army of 70,000 men there
'are about 20 doctQrs and perhaps 30
nurses. , Plans are now being made
for the establishment of three hos
pitals in Bohemia. Forty American
nurses are to be sent there from
the far east at once, and a recent
cable from Russia asks that Czecho
slovak, Polish or Russian aides, i
thoroughly qualified and with Amer
ican ideals, be sent to supplement
the work of the American nurses."

Legion of Honor was Rosa Bon

Hal Howard is engaged to Mme.
La Selle. What do you knowabout
that? She is a charming little
French lady who is in America
under the auspices of the French
.Orphan organization. She was at
Mrs. Van Covers Red Cross affair
the other eve and wore a stunning
hat. It was a large black velvet
picture hat. One side was wider
than the other, which gave it a very
attractive effect. A bunch of black
silk tassels hung oijer at the side.
Mme. La Selle wore her hat rather
far over her face and it certainly
made a wonderful background for
her lovely black eyes.

' CHAPTER III. '
Under the Spell.
PEGGY, startled as she was to
find Billy Belgium in the
Gypsy camp,' was glad to see that
he was not in actual pain, his moan
ing evidently coming only- from
"Billy 1 Wake upl'Sihe whispered.
Billy was very sound asleep and
only grunted. Creeping into the
compartment, Peggy shook him by
the shoulder. '
With a snort Billy sat up and
looked wildly at her.
"It's only me! Peggy!" she whis
pered, noticing the glare in his eyes.
"Peggyl" he murmured. "Princess
Peggy, beautiful, wonderful, glori
ous ruler of Birdland. Have you
come to journey with me in this
marvelous kingdom of enchant
ment?" "I've come to try to save you,"
answered Peggy,, wondering if he
had a fever and was delirious, he
talked so queerly: "What are you
"I am living the life of the free, I
am walking the paths of delight,"
was the strange reply.
"You, too, Princess Peggy, shall
live the life of the free; you, too,
shall walk the paths of delight,"
said a voice behind her.
Peggy turned quickly to find that
a curtain had been drawn back, re
vealing another compartment in the
tent, where "sat Tirzah, the Gypsy
queen, facing her across a small ta
ble. On the table stood a large
crystal globe, which glowed with
changing colors. Peggy felt her
eyes drawn to the globe with a fas
cination she could not resist.
"Look deep, deep into the crystal,"
came the voice of Tirzah, in sooth
ing tones. "There you shall find
the Gypsy charm, There you shall
come under the sway of the spirit
of romance romance which gilds
the world, and turns dull existence
into a mad whirl of excited joy."
Peggy could see no harm in look-,
ing into the pretty globe, and so let
her gaze remain fixed 'on it. But
soon she felt that she was coming
under a spell. Her mind was no
longer free to do what she wished.
She couldn't turn her eyes from the
mystic crystal. She was a prisoner
a prisoner, not alone in body, but
also in thought and will. Her body
felt numb and her head whirled.
Then abruptly this feeling passed.
Her mind cleared, her body seemed
electrified with fresh snap and vigor,
and she felt free freer than she had
ever been all her life; free of all re
straints, free of all duties, free to
just laugh and sing and play, re
gardless of anything save her own
"Drink deep of care-free joy,"
softly spoke Tirzah, smiling at her.
"Drink deep, now, for tomorrow
holds pain and sorrow and death."
"Come with me, we-will see to
gether the wonders of this realm of
enchantment." It was Billy Bel
gium who spoke. He took Peggy
by the hand, and out they raced into
the open air.
Peggy's heart seemed on fire with
happiness. Her spirits rose high,
bursting forth in laughter she could
not control. She wanted to run and
And the Gypsy camp seemed
transformed. Where only an hour
before the tents had been splotchy
daubs of color and the vans were
overgaudy, now they assumed the
richness 6f a king's royal equip
ment. The tents were pavilions of
silk. The vans were gorgeous
And the Gypsies themselves were
changed. Where they had appeared
a swarthy and even dirty crew, clad
in shoddy, flashy clothes, now they
were bronzed and handsome knights
and ladies garbed in satin and furs.
Billy Belgium's rags had become
Even the half-naked children had
turned into splendid young nymphs
with rich but scafity raiment. And
they played 'with a wild zest that
was contagious. In a moment Peggy
found herself swept with Bil)y into
a dance so frenzied that Mf would
have frightened her had the strange

freed her of fear. She knew she was

Moist Air in Our Housesfi
The average person is more sus
ceptible to disease in the winter
than in the summer because they
live unde. more artificial conditions.
Our modern houses are overheated,
especially our apartment houses.
This year niy find cooler air in our
r.oms than usual because of the cost
i " fuel and the need for its con
servation, but the average winter
brings overheated-house air in its
Moisture in Heated Air.
One of the worst qualities of hot
air in our houses is its dry quality.
Air at different temperatures can
hold different amounts of moisture.
The amount of moisture in air com
pared with the amount of air at that
temperature can hold is called the
relative humidity". When the rela
tive humidity is low, the air feels
parched and dry. What we call
"balmy" air is air with a rather high
relative humidity. In our houses
the winter air from out of doors that
enters has a ycertain amount of
moisture in it. As the air is heated,
the moisture content stays thesame
but the relative humidity goes down
because heated air can hold more
moisture than cool air. Hence the
need arises of introducing more
moisture into the air of our rooms.
Devices for Supplying Moisture.
In a room heated by a stove, this
additional moisture may be fur
nished by a pan of water kept on the
back of the stove. The water heats
steam is formed, and enters the a'r.
Any furnace has a water' box at
the- side. As the air is heated, it
passes over this bt-: end takes up
more moisture. Unfortunately these
boxes do not hold a sufficient vol
ume of water to produce moist air,
ar I sometimes we even forget to
keep them filled. There are, how
ever certain types of modern fur
naces v.liich have very large water
boxes. These furnaces are said to
furnish warm" air of a delightful

Danger of Dry Air.
The effect of dry air on furniture
is noticeable. It draws out the
moisture from the wood, causing the
vanish to crack or check. It also
has a similar effect on our bodies.
The moisture is actually taken from
theody tissues, as witness the dry
feeling of skin and the parched lips
of a hot dry atmosphere. In su'-h
a condition, our systems are below
normal in resistance vpower, and
hence we are especially liable to
succumb to any disease which we
might ordinarily .resist.
