Oh, . for punctuality, the - club

ple coming late is beginning to fray
the nerves of many who attend the
lectures and meetings of the various
organizations, for in the disturbance
the opening words of the speaker
are often lost.
Mme. Galli-Curci set the prece

promptly on the hour, and as a re
sult everyone was on time. When
the hands of the clock begin to turn
toward the dinner-hour there is; a
visible restlessness among the fem

have noticed when attending' club
meetings. This might be "avoided
if the women arrived on the hour

earlier,"i . x

Woman's Committee of
Council of Defense
At the meeting of the Council of
Defense woman s committee, Mrs.
McKelvy gave a detailed report of
interviews held with the firms of
the various- department stores. The
particular work of this department
is to see how many, if any. girls are
i being let out on account of the re
turn of the, men who hve been in
In each and every case the firm
stated that the men would be taken
back. They also stated that in
their stores the business, had. in
creased to such an extent that they
would be able . to retain all the
women engaged, as well as take
back all the men. V ,

made between the employer and

men' workers lacked accuracy.
While they were good mathematic
ians, and were not accused of care
lessness, vet that absolute accuracy
that is demanded by the banking
system seemed to be lacking. .
In explanation of this Mrs.Ale
Kelvy stated that perhaps this was
due to the psychological reason
that is inherent in' the sub-conscious
mind of every woman, '.that
sometime she "would be a home
maker while boys and" men,-just as
sub-consciously feel that they will
be home-makers and must increase
their earning capacity as they will
be the heads of the home, and upon
them will rest the burden of pro
viding . ways for the up-keep
and maintenance of his home,' his
mate, and . always . the hope "for
children 1 t ;.
In the railroad offices the return
ing men will in all cases be taken
back at their former salaries, or at
what might be termed a normal in

Advice to the. Lovelorn
By BEATRICE FAIRFAX
My dear Mies Fairfax, Omaha
Bee: I am In love with a girl, but
she Is three years younger than ma.
Do you think that would make any
difference? I know- she is also In
love with me, and I want to say
something on the subject of painted
up dolls. I have had experience with
them all, but there Is, I want to
say, nothing like the plain, good,
motherly lady,) and I wouldn't have
any other kind than & plain, moth
erly woman (or a wife. I wish you
would find out who the young lady
la and send me her address and
maybe I can give her soma Informa
tion. Please do. not put my name In
print, but Just my initials, and If
you can find who the lady Is you
can write to me personally. H. M.
' Dear Miss Fairfax", Omaha Bee:
My I be admitted in this discus
sion. Tony, you point was well
raised and must sayf I, too, have
known some "painted dolls" that
were big of heart and made good
wives and mothers, but I think you
were mistaken as to to C. O. A.'s
meaning. . I don't believe he would
marry -an angel on a bet and don't
think he meant that at all.
I agree with him, and the sooner
girls learn 'not to paint the better
off they will be, for paint and rouge
have been considered by men since
time was as evil or a sign of evil,
and if we choose the appearance of
evil we must not complain If the
men folks think evil of us.
Now, I suppose you are branding
me an old maid, but I am not I
am only 19, and I cannot see why
so many want to know what to do
to be popular with the boys for.
Girls, Just be your own natural self,
the regular pal sort, and you will
just get along fine.
Maybe this sounds like preaching,
but I am Just telling others what
the best pal I ever had taugttt me
Maybe I am wrong: If so, please
tell me so. JUST A PAL.
Brand New Opinion.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
As I am an interested reader of
your "Advice to the Lovelorn," I
will write you concerning the"
"painted up doll." I am a burnette,
with very red lips, so, of course,
do not use paint, but there are"
many girls who are so unfortunate
as to have very pale, thin lips; in
fact, there areas many who haven't
as there are who have. I think that
a little paint will give such a person
a much more attractive look, aa it
helps to show a younger and hap
pier face. Although I admit that
many girls .carry painting to the
extreme, many of them are young
and do not stop to think what too
much paint does to spoil the effect L
uitrer gins in most cases wno use it
know more about- how to use it 'Is
there nothing that men "carry to ex
tremes? Are they perfect? I
think that if Mr. C. O. A had more
Important and better things to oc
cupy his time e would not find
time to sit around and criticize
young ladies. I have "seen many like
him, who are always finding some
thing about women to criticize. Why
not criticize yourself for a while, Mr.
C. O. A.T A READER.
The Younger Generation.
Dear Mlss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
I've never written to you before, al
though I read your column In The
Bee every day.
Must- say in regard to "Tony's"
letter that I don't agree with him.
We are not to Judge others, but we
all have our own opinions and gen
erally live up to what we think is
But where would the younger
generation of girls be if we upheld
the "painted beauties."
We wouldn't " have so many
"downfalls' today if girls would
dress and act according to "moth
er's" advice. But it's to attract the
attention of men, some very unde
sirable ones, sometimes, that girls
paint tneir races. .
But for my part when I choose
a husband I certainly don't want one
that Is addicted to the habit of
chasing "painted beauties," because
the habit might have become per
manent MIS3 TWENTY.
P. S. Give us your opinion, Miss
Let us hear from more of the
readers on the subject After all, il
isn't a matter to be settled by one
person, although I have an opinion
on the subject which I shall giva
later. . .
