One of the most useful institutions in
this city is the Y.W.O.A. Under the
present devoted and efficient secretary
many of the young women of Lincoln
who are earning their living have a
pleasant home and a clean, cheerful
place in which to eat their luncheon.
Lunch is served 8 la carte, and as it is
the object of the association to serve
rather than to make money, any young
woman is allowed to bring her own
luncheon and eat it with the addition,
it she desires, of a cup or tea or coffee or
a bowl of soup. At noon the big, clean
room is filled with girls eating and
chattering and resting. Miss Kyle, the
secretary, has made the lunch-room more
than self-supporting, although the
highest priced item on the menu does
not exceed five cents. The food is very
well cooked, the table linen is clean and
the aspect of the lunch-room invites re
freshment of body and spirit.
There is a parlor where habituee re
tire to do fancy work, or to sing and
play on the piano. The management
of the association is planning to put
in a gymnasium. If this could be ac
complished it would increase the num
ber of visitors and double the usefulness
of the institution to the present mem
bers. There are a number of persons who
constantly make vague plans for the
betterment of the race, who deplore the
ostracism of working women and de
nounce our social system, but their
helpfulness never gets further than the
mouth. They are not members of this
one institution which is of more ser
vice to the young women workers of
Lincoln than anything else I know of.
They neither visit it nor pay so much as
a dollar a year, which is the regular fee,
toward its support. If a homeless girl
is stranded here she is taken to the Y.
W.C.A. rooms. Lost, despairing or
discouraged women bv the hundreds
have been helped and comforted and
encouraged to be somebody by Miss Kyle
of this association. The latter is prac
tical, non sentimental and an extreme
ly helpful woman, withal a woman of the
world and of affaire whose advice and
sympathy are worth receiving. The in
stitution is non-sectarian and deserves
the help of every patriotic citizen of
At the home of Dr. and Mis. Mitch
ell on Thursday evening, a few friends
listened to a piano recital by Mr. But
ler of Omaha. It was an evening of
rare musical enjoyment for the few who
were privileged to hear him. The op
portunity was appreciated the more
because it is for only a short time he
remains in this part of the country. In
a day or two he leaves for the Pacific
coast. Mr. Butler is master of a fine
technique. Hi'b velvet-steel fingers fall
upon the keys bo that all the tone con
cealed in the long twisted steel cords is
rendered. No sound or sense of per
cussion as the fingers strike the key
board, but the sweetness, smoothness
and meaning of his tones are the die-
tinguishing marks of a virtuoso. Mr.
and Mrs. Mitchell's home is the meet
ing place for artiste, musicians and those
who are appreciative without being
