THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 81; 1919. OilllA TO HAVE DISPLAY HERE Clarke Powell, Returning from Chicago, Says Many Cars of Latest Designs Not Yet Ready. Clarke G. Powell has returned from Chicago filled with enthusiasm for a greater automobile show than ever at the Omaha Auditorium, March 10 to IS. "There was a tremendous attend ance at the Chicago show this week," said Mr. Powell. "The Chicago dealers did themselves proud, this being the first time thejr handled the show 'themselves. "With very few exceptions minor exceptions every exhibit ' in the Chicago exhibition will be in the Omaha show. Every car of reputa tion will be shown here, and fur ther than that, more factory repre sentatives will be here this year than at any previous Omaha show. Waiting For Omaha Show. "I found that fewer dealers from this territory attended the Chicago show. This proves that they are waiting for the Omaha show, which will be just as complete as any given in the country. The dealers have found they can do better here than elsewhere. "Prospective car owners will get better service here than at any other show. They can see just as many cars in Omaha as they could have seen at the Chicago show. And they can see them without so much tramping around. "Our lighting system will be twice as powerful per cubic foot as in the Chicago show rooms. "Also, one was impressed with the lack of new designs, new models any new stuff at the Chicago show. The factories haven't had time to perfect new ideas since the war end ed. But Omaha will have the ad vantage of getting the new things in March."

M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. are joining forces this year to raise their annual budgets as a measure of economy in time and energy. A large majority of the friends and supporters of the two as sociations are identical, and the mat ter of financing them together seems a'logical and propeMhing to do. The amount desired is $40,000 to be di vided equally between the two or ganizations. The official dates of the campaign, known as the "Double Triangle" campaign are February 3, 4, and 5, but all this week 20 teams from the Y. M. C. A. alone have been quietly forking in various parts of the city. The regular work of the Y. M. C. A. plays a vital work in the life of the city. Founded in Omaha in 1868 by Robert Weidensall, it has grown from modest beginnings to its present! proportions, when as many as 2,500 to 3,000 persons pass through its doors every day. Cold!

The situation amused him, nor was it new. He looked at her with a slanted, quizzical glance and be gan slowly, with a mixture of im pertinence and light good humor with which he knew how to make acceptable the most personal dis quisition, "Because you are destined to be come a professionally beautiful wo man, like Mrs. Challoner over there." He nodded toward the danc- j ers, who flashed across the doorway ; and,' with an assumption of imper- sonality, continued: "If I were seek ing to compliment you, I would not put it in the future. You are not there yet. You are on the threshold. There is a whole art to acquire or a profession, as you wish. That's what interests me about you what is coming. To me, every beautiful woman is a potential tragedy." "In what way?" she said, too in terested to be self-conscious. "A tragedy to those she consumes and exhausts." He drew back, study ing her with more interest as he be came interested in the subject. "You see, a beautiful woman the profes sionally beautiful kind quite a dis tinction, you knew is a social ad venturer. She arrives as self-made men arrive; there is much in com mon between them." He smiled, adding more lightly: "I suppose at the present moment you have made all sorts of good resolutions and you believe in them. Futility 1 Throw them awayl You are doomed, my dear Mrs. Forrester. Society needs you. You will rule it and be its slave. You don't believe me?" "I should not let him be talking to me this way," she thought, "and yet it is quite impersonal." Her curiosity was aroused at the half serious, half-humorous way in which he dissected her. Was he only amus ing himself? "Can't I have a will of my own?" she said. "A what?" "A will of my 'own." "You will have fashions of con ducts, fashions of thinking, but will that does not exist! A profes sionally beautiful woman must al ways be in style. She dresses, acts and thinks as other beautiful women do because her life is to compete with them, and to compete with them she must attack them on their own territory. You are not con vinced? Look at the dear things tonight." He reassured himself with a glance as to the modesty of his companion's decollete and indicated, with a wave of his hand, the daring shoulders and throats of the dancers, adding: "Women, women, you are a perpetual delight! You are un fathomable. If you had suggested five years ago, to any woman presv ent that she would come to dress like this, how indignant she would have beenl You may have the same feeling tonight but next year you will do what Irma and Mrs. Chal loner do, because they do it." Amy, thinking of her cerise gown which Andrew had found too dar ing, laughed guiltily. "Well, yes; but that's only a ques tion of dress." "Pardon me question of style, and everything else will be a ques tion of style. The dear ladies who tried to snub you tonight will be come your inseparable friends the moment they see they cannot down you. And you, on your part, will give more time to them, your dear est rivals, than to your own family. You will have a sort of collective morality. You find Irma surround ed by a collection of young fetch-and-carrys. You'll establish your own brigade or try to steal hers from her. You'll flirt as Irma flirts. You'll dare as Irma dares. You'll beak the conventions as Irma breaks them." "Why always Irma?" "Oh, Irma is the perfect type of a society model. She has wit, she has taste, and she has a thorough in stinct for avoiding the ice where it begins to grow thin. She is thorough ly convinced of the innocence of all her intentions in fact, she is quite capable of founding a school of mod ern social philosophy." "Aren't you making us out very immoral persons?" "Immoral? Of course," he said cheerfully. "You are all profound ly immoral, but not in the sense you attach. . You are immoral because you ar irresponsible, because you are not really necessary. Immoral in another sense no! That's the worst and the best of you. You avoid great emotions. They are too disturbing, and you can't take the time in society. You seek safe little emotions to be constantly amused. The strongest emotion Irma has is jealousy of Gladys Challoner. They spend their lives attacking each oth er, poaching on each other's pre serves. They outrival each other in display; they are indispensable to each ther; they call each other up on the telephone every morning and tear each other to pieces every night. Do you think any man can compete with the strength of such an attachment?" He stopped, laughed as a man who verges on an epigram, pleased at his discovery. "Gladys is a moral lightning-rod to Irma it's what keeps her moral, in the ordinary sense of the word." Womanlike, while Jistening to this diatribe, delivered half playfully, half seriously, she was seeking the personal explanation. Was he still in love with Irma Dellabarre? At the thought that this might be the reason of the satire, she felt a sharp pinch of annoyance which caused her to say acidly, "And this is what I am to become? Thank you. You have a very bad opinion of me." "I? Not al all! You'll see so ciety needs you. You will be one of its martyrs. You must be admired, imitated, and torn to pieces regu larly, or society would be a very dull place. In a year or two, when I come back again, I shall hope to be your very good friend. Who knows, when next we meet, I may be foolish enugh to lose my head!" She laughed at the casual way he declared this impertinence, as though offering her an atoning com pliment. "Even with all your wisdom? "Oh, the wisest is the most vul nerable!" "You know, I should be very angry at you, but you have the most amusing way of saying the most im possible things. Tell me, why doyou talk to me like this? Is it just to amuse yourself?" He looked at her and said sol emnly, "I am prophesying, you know!" ' So, in your eyes I am doomed?" "There will be compensations," he said, with a smile. She dropped her fan for a mom- - In QlCUJ Few Hours Midwinter liere means Gold, and yet more cold; Goal, and yet more coal.

"I believe you are more than half serious 1" "Serious never! I never would be so impertinent as to tell the truth m a Serious manner." "But if I permit you," she added, after a slight hesitation. "Very well, then, I warn you you can't play the game like Irma. If you have a spark of real emotion, it is dangerous to feed on sensation, even little sensations. They who live by sensations shall perish by sensations! A man with a con science and a woman with a heart have no place here! In the end" He hesitated a moment; his eyes met hers and looked down through them into the secret caverns with an impetuous boldness he had not shown before "yes, and in the end, there will be trouble. Ah, not just now later, when you wake up." "You don't think I am now, then," she said, avoiding his glance. "No; I do not." There was a long pause, during which she brought the soft, undu lating feathers of her fan back again across her face. "Are you really leaving soon?" she said, presently. "Yes; I am going to take up my post in Madrid immediately." "You are really a terrifying per son to talk to," she said. "I don't know whether I'd care to repeat this experience." "If I have told you the truth,'1 he said quietly, "I have tried to keep to generalities." She nodded Andrew had not been mentioned. At this moment, Tody Dawson de scended on them like a runaway tower. "Here, I say, Monte! Amy, we've been sending out search parties for you!" She sprang up, genuinely glad for the interruption, startled at the in timacy which had grown over them. She felt annoyed, angry at herself, for the ease with which she had re vealed herself, resenting also the im personal quality of his curiosity, so utterly devoid of any tribute to her. No one had ever approached her in that attitude. "He thinks I am only a child," she thought impatiently. She determined, she did not know exactly why, that she would give him no further opportunity. When, later in the evening, he came up to ask her to dance, she refused. (To Be Continued Tomorrow.) Mrs. Walker Says More Jobs Here Than She Can Fill "A great many people in Omaha believe that there is a scarcity of positions for the returned soldiers and sailors," said Mrs. Mabel Walk er, head of the soldiers' employ ment, bureau of the Omaha Chamber of Cohimerce Thursday morning. "This belief is absurd," Mrs. Tar ker oontinued, "We have more jobs open than we can fill and many de mands for unskilled labor paying from 45 to 50 cents an hour just go begging. Inquiries for farm I labor increases rapidly and we arc filling positions as fast as we pos sibly can. Of course our services are gratis and nearly every soldier or sailor recently discharged from the service who really wants work, can be placed through us." UY IT NOW.
