Alkali Makes Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
- Most soaps and prepared sham
poos contain too much alkali, which
is very injurious, as it dries the
scalp and makes the hair brittle.
The best thing to use is just plain
' mulsifjed cocoanut oil, for this is
pure and entirely greaseless. It's
very cheap, and beats the most ex
pensive soaps or anything else all to
pieces. You can get this at any
drug store, and a few ounces will
last the whole family for months.
Simply moisten the hair with wa
ter and rub It in, about a teaspoon
ful is all that is required.' It makes
n abundance of rich, creamy lath
r, cleanses thoroughly, and rinses
mt easily. The hair dries quickly
md evenly, and is soft, fresh look
ing, bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to
handle. Besides, it loosens ana
akes out everyTparticle of dust, dirt
nd dandruff. Adv.

Omaha Women Are Stirred
By the Disclosures' of Vice
Conditions Existing in City
Four Meetings Have Already Been Arranged to Dis
cuss Questions Now Being Probed by the
Police and Health Departments ; State Wide s
Campaign Is Under Way. .
Women of Omaha are stirred bv the disclosures of vice
conditions in Omaha made by The Bee. '
They are marshalling forces to create a public sentiment
which will stand behind city, state and government attempts
to lessen the evil.
Four meetings have already been arranged to discuss
the matter within the next fortnight. They are :
A private meeting social workers Monday night.
An executive meeting of Douglas county W. C. T. JJ.
Tuesday at 2 p. m. in the Y. W. C. A.

Y. W. C. A.
Social conditions will also form thebut
chief topic of discussion at the Ne
braska charities and corrections con
ference to be held in Lincoln, Feb
ruary 2-4, according to Mrs. Draper
fcmith. Proposed , legislation wiHJ
Campaign State Wide.
"A state-wide campaign against the
social evil is now being outlined by
the Nebraska W. C. T. U. now that
prohibition is won," said Dr. Jennie
Callfas. ' i -
"We tan now get behind the
movement to suppress vice and con
centrate our energies on moral edu
cation," said Mrs. H. G. Claggett,
Douglas county chairman.
"It is imperative that every mem
ber of the executive committee and
every departmental superintendent
should be present at the meeting
Tuesday," said Mrs, J. A. Dalzell.
Mrs. W. T, Graham, Mrs. H. N.
Craig, Mrs. William Berry, Mrs.
Mattson and Mrs. M. D. Vienb. are
other. welfare workers interested in
"To close the city detention hos
pital would certainly be a backward
step," said Mrs. Claggett. "The
best way to treat fallen women is
on a custodial farm, away from city
influences. Lacking that, we women
shall stand behind any remedial
work that can be done, even if the
hospital inmates should be moved to
the new jail addition," saiq Mrs.
Must Take Treatment.
"There will always be complaints
from some of the patients where
ever they are treated against their
will, but treated they must be, even
against their will, for they are men
aces to the public health."
"Something must be done. Right
or wrong, we must act according .o
our best judgment," said Mrs. Dra
per Smith, leader of the program on
social hygiene for thev Woman's
club, one week from Monday.
All angles of "the local situation,
bills pending in tiic legislature, and
government attempts to handle the
situation, will be discussed. Dr,
Robert Leavens of the Unitarian
church, will talk on the local condi
tion. Outside speakers, possibly
from Lincoln, will discuss other
"We need action," said M:s.
Smith. "We can't afford to waste a
lot of time merely to discuss the
matter. Those women must be
cared for, and the state or city must
take the necessary steps, or legis!--tion,
to do it. Organization of wo
men, without funds, can do nothing-"
'Tt isn't surprising that we laymen
don't, know what to do when medi
cal men, themselves, do not agree
any more than they did in the 'flu'
situation," said Mrs. Smith.
Charities Endorse Work.
At a meeting of the advisory corrr
mittcc of the Associaties Charities
composed of representative Social
workers of our city, held Thurs
day noon at the Chamber of C6m
merce, after an address by Dr. Pal
mer Findlcy, medic! director of
the Detention home, the following
resolution was unanimously adopted.
' "Resolved that we, the social
workers of Omaha, heartily endorse
the work of the Detention home in
the care ana cure 'of unfortuncle
women who there receive treatment
for diseases that arc not only harm,
