Nature Study in Schools.
The sdhool training of children is
being given more thought and atten
tion today than ever before. A dis
tinct effort is bein made to fit our
boys and girls for intelligent citizen
ship and for the work of life to
greater degree than has yet been at
tained. These studies that will de
velop individuality, strength of char
acter and human sympathy are now
considered important in the school
education of children. One of the
most effective aids in this work is a
comprehensive, practical, concrete
course of nature study, a course
based not on books, but on the phe
nomena of nature: a course that is
correlated with language, literature,
physiology and geography.
The purpose of nature study
should be to utilize, extend and de
velop the pupil's interests; to de
velop the ability and habit of recog
nizing the problems which nature
presents, and to learn how to solve

The legislature of 1919 passed the
code bill, permitting the governor to
appoint secretaries of finance, labor,
trade, commerce, agriculture, public
welfare and public works. The law
is now in operation. A1 referendum
petition was filed against the bill, but
was held invalid, by the court. The
case was appealed and is now before
the supreme court. ,
The code bill is designed to bring
about a more efficient business ad
ministration of the - state's affairs,
through the consolidation of exist
ing bureaus and -commissions, the
lopping off of unnecessary agencies,
the prevention of duplication or
overlapping functions, and finally by
providing a budget system tor the

An international conference of
teachers' organizations of the allied
and associated nations will be held
at Cleveland, O., February 24-29, un
der the auspices of the National
Education Association r o the
United States. In its announcement
the association says:
"We believe that the public
schools of all the great democracies
of the world can, through co-opera-tvie
effort, do much to conserve and
promote the great ideals for which
the war was fought and won. We
hold, indeed, that a distinct respon
sibility rests upon the teachers of
the allied and associated nations to
fulfill on a broader plane than ever
before their great function as trus
tees of the human heritageto see
to it that what has been gained at
so great and So terrible a cost is
sedulously safeguarded and transmit
ted without loss and wtihout taint
to each new generation.
"So important is this problem and
so great are the possibilities, of in
ternational co-operation in effecting
its solution, that the National Edu
cation association has urged the
creation of an international bureau
of education in the league of na
tions. As a step toward the estab

the nucleus of , an. international as
sociation of teachers, it is desirable
that an international conference of

Will it be too milch to ask you to
put this in The Sunday Bee?
It seems to me you are pretty
wobbly in the matter of your affec
tions. To accept a diamond ring
from a young man would Imply an
engagement 'and unless you love
him sincerely and expect to marry
him (which your letter Indicates you
do not), then do not obligate your
selfand deceive him by taking his
ring. The very fact that you want
to run off to a dance with some
other boy shows that you are ncrt
capable of loving deeply and truly
at your age. Go with different boys
if you like, but don't, pretend to
pledge yourself to one unless1 you
mean to live up to that pledge.
Masked Ball. '
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
We are two sisters, 18 and 17 years
old. Now, there will be a mask ball
here and we would like to mask
for something nice. We would like
you to give us some advice, as we
want to mask together.
Thanking you in advance, I would
like to see my letter in print as soon
as possible. We remain.
SUNSHINE AND ROSES.
Living in a small town as you do,
it is not as easy to get a costume
for a masked ball as it would be in
a city where you could rent an out
fit for an evening. So you will have
to depend on something which can
be devised. Ghost costumes made
up of sheets and conical-shaped
pasteboard hats make one look, very
tall and are in that respect a good
disguise. If you could get hold of
a college cap and gown, you could
wear a black mask with it and repre
sent night. Gold and -silver moon
and stars cut from paper would be
pasted yor stitched on the black
gown, and if you don't have a cap,
wear a crown made of gold or sil
very, carrying also a wand. A
Prfscilla make-up is easy , and at
tractive. Wear a pretty light dress,
simply made, with a fichu such as
the colonial dames wore. A wig
would help out A colonial costume
is very picturesque. Wear an old
fashioned dress and poWder your
hair, or wear a wig If your mother
has an old-fashioned dress, you could
devise a beautiful masked costume
from this. A country girl is usually
found at masked balls. For this you
would wear a big apron entirely cov
ering you, with sunbonnet on head
and mask over eyes. You can easily
conceal your identity with this
character. If it is lust a en-la' nartv.
clown suit, like the' Yama Yama girls
wore, would be a pleasing choice.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee:
We are two girls of 14 and 15 years
of age. Should we expect dates for
dances with boys? Many of the
girls go without Is it proper?
When boys escort you home
should they leave you at the end of
the sidewalk leading from the house
or take you to the steps?
why is it wrong?
Is it proper to change rings with
boys? ' v
What is your opinion of a girl
who lies In order to break up a

As we are m earnest, please an
swer as soon as possible. Sincerely.
f ou are too young to go with boyt
with or without datea in advance.
Boys who escort young ladles bom
should take them to the door of tb
home. If a boy puts his arm arouni
you and you don't object to that, he
will go further. And the more llbw
tela he takes without your protest
the more difficult It will be to atop
him when you wish to. There Is no
particular wrong in exchanging rings .
with boys except that probably your
mind is full of silly thoughts instead
of sensible ones. A lie is wrong, (m
especially one which harms others.
Your entire letter shows that your
thoughts are on the boy question.
You are too young for that. Go to
school and try to learn something
which will help make you fin wo
men Instead of empty-headed little
things with only a list of silly ex
periences to fortify you for the great
ness of life.
Too Young to Love. 1
' Misji Fairfax: I have read youi
advice to others and now I came to
you with my troubles. I was intro
duced to a young man some time
ago and I liked him the first time I
saw him and I found out through
others tbat he also cares for m.
Once, shortly after we were ac
quainted, he aRked to take me home,
but I refused for a very good reason
and ever since he has acted kind of
peeved. We are both 17 years of
age. Do you think we are too young
to go together? I have called up
this young" man several times upon
hearing that he was ill. He talked
real nice to me over the phone, but
he never calls me up. How can I
regain his friendship? Do you think
I should ask him frankly if be is
mad because I didn't let htm take
me home? Or should I let him go?
I don't love him, because I think
we're too young to think of lov.
Don't you think .so? I just class
him as a good friend and like htm.v
I liked him as soon as I saw him.
Hoping you will print this.
Your letter sounds sensible and I
believe your own good judgment trill
be your best friend and guide. I
think ' you know that it is not be
coming or advisable for a girl to
make an obvious effort to attract ft
young man. True friendship! are
splendid, and the ordinary Interest
which they inspire ought not to be
criticized. You are too young to
think seriously-of love. It is quits
natural you should like soms boys .
better than others, but keep your
own self res'pecf and you are sdrs to
gain the respect of the young man
and perhaps his interest.
Overcome With Her Looks.
Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha .Bee:
I am a girl of 17 and . am
considered very good ' looking for
my age. I attract all the young
men , and they are always call
ing me up to makes dates with
me, and calling on me, and I am
bothered very much. I guess I am
too pretty to be left alone. I would
like for you to tell me how I can get
the young men not to bother me so
much. Thanking you for your, ad
vice, I am, BLUE EYES. '.
You seem to be overcome with
your own looks. ' No one is as pretty
as you think you are. And no on
who, is not beautiful in mind cn
long attract with only beauty of the
face. Don't be concerned about the
vast number of young men you jst
tract, for-unless you develop sonie
sense along with your looks, you
won t attract them long. And, too.
Paps the young men who call
you can 1 set dates wlth nl0re B,n'
Dolly Explain to your mother
that you are not happy without girl
friends of your own age. If she '
were to know that you desire 'the
companionship of school friends. I
am-sure she would not be unreason-'
Tjeona You are too young ito
have beaux. Be good friends With 1
the boys, but do not be sentimental.
The marriage of cousins Is not per
mitted here. Wear your hair in, a
soft knot at the nape of the neck.
Black Eyes Why not send flo'
ers to the young man? Puffs are
not usually becoming. Dress the -hair
simply and it will look far pret
tier. Valentines are remembrances,
such as are Christmas s,hd Easter
cards. There is no longer much sen
