' i An Interesting incident which oc curred in one of the dugouts near the front in France concerns two well known Topeka people. Lieut. Clark son Millspaugh, son of Mrs. F. R. Millspaugh of .1163 Fillmore street, went into a dugout one day and found a postcard lying there addressed to Mrs. Lee Monroe of Topeka. The writer had received one of the tobac co kits whioh Mrs. Monroe had sent and this card was to thank her for it. Lieutenant Millspaugh filled out the card and sent it to Mrs. Monroe In a letter to his mother, which reached here a few days ago. - Miss . Louise F. Curtis will arrive from Omaha, Neb., tomorrow morning to take the place as girls' secretary of the Y. W. C. A. Miss Clare Arm strong, who has held that position for several years, will leave tomorrow for her home in K.aie. Fa., lor a few weekV rest, after which she will be general secretary of the T. W. C. A. at Butler, Pa. Miss Curtis has for the past year been educational and industrial secre tary of the T. W. C. A. at Omaha. She Is a graduate of Nebraska univer sity and spent one yearat the Y. W. C. A. training center at Minneapolis, Minn. She was during the year after her training office secretary of the Minneapolis association, after which she accepted a position as educational director of the association at Omaha. After serving in this capacity for three years she became educational and in dustrial secretary at Omaha, which position she gave up to come to To peka as secretary of girls work. THERE'S A GIRL IN OCR TOWS Who was attempting to entertain one of the famous "Blue Devils" of France who was here for a Rota club party a few weeks ago. This young lady knew that the French uniform Is a light blue, but she had not heard that the Blue Devils wore dark blue. Evidently she thought there was noth ing In a name anyway, when the conversation lagged she astonished the soldier and paralyzed the other mem bers of the club, who heard, by asking him if he had "dyed his uniform." . The ladies working with the Masonic unit of the Red Cross, who can knit for socks,' are requested to meet at Ma sonic temple Thursday afternoon be tween the hours of 2 and "4 o'clock. The yarn has come and will be given out at that time. A crowd of girls who spent the week-end camping at Wakarusa, chaperoned by Miss Dorothy Durham, included Misa Marian Squires, Miss Ruth Wilson, Miss Isabel Southern. Miss Bell Kellogg. Miss Margaret. Ripley and Miss Mary Tasker. When the men are asked to give up their day's smokes to contribute a dime each to some cause, no matter how worthy, we wonder how many of them actually make the sacrifice on their cigars. Wouldn't it be easier for most of them to give up anything else which is a. daily habit than their smokes? And we imagine many of them figure this out long before the day is over. A woman would make a great sacrifice, give her dime to a worthy cause and feel like a heroine all day long, but men, especially smok ing men, are different, and. we don't care it they are. However, a man with a cigar in his mouth wouldn't nave tne nerve to refuse, so it good way to raise money, neverthe less. Atpublic eating places In Holland one is eitner a "regular or a "casual customer. . The casual oustomcr mav have his luncheon and dinner of the following ' dishes: Luncheon One ; course of a. choice from fish, game, posdtry. controlled or "free" meat, with greens and potatoes: a half course as an entree or as a sweet; a dessert. Dinner is the same as lunch eon with the addition of soup and another vegetable. If a "causual" takes his meals a la carte, an extra dish of seme non-controlled food" may be served. In this respect only does the casual customer have an advan tage over the regular. "Free" meat includes sweetbrer.ds, lcid,.ey, liver, tongue and any tinned meats. It is interesting to note that, with the exception of tinned meat, the above list' of free meats is a list the food administration suggests we get better acquainted with in America. We have a plentiful supply of these little used meats . nd as they are not being shipped to Europe at all they make excellent substitutes for the beef which is in great der .anr abroad. . Whfti a girl whose husband im a soldier in the army, but who has not yet gone across the seas, comes home for a few months with her parents, it Is not a sign of domestic troubles be tween husband and wife, as some of the wise people are always apt to say. No, no, not this - time;-, you guessed wrong, W. P. A community gathering will te held Friday night for the benefit of the Red Cross at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Shelby Bullard, at Tonganoxie. Adjt. Gen. and Mrs. Charles S. Huffman will he among the guests. - Adjutant General Huffman will deliver an ad dress. There probably will he several motor parties from Topeka who will attend the gathering at the Bullara home Fridav nleht. The Bullard house at Tonganoxie Is one of the most attractive country homes In the state. It is a large house but is built In ". ungalow style, of brown shingles. With Its surroundings of beautifnl shrubbery It reminds one of the attractive bungalow homes of southern California.. Many Topeka people have been guests here at differ ent times.

Mis- Marlorie Dick of Oklahoma To Ward Off Summer i Complexion Ills To keep the face smooth, white and beautiful all summer, there's nothing qnite so good as ordinary mercollxed wax. Dis colored or freckled skin, so common st this season. Is gently, gradually absorbed by the wax and replaced by the newer, freaher skin beneath. The face exhibits no trace of the wax. whleh la applied at bedtime and washed off mnrninra. Greasy creams, powders and rongea, on the other hand, are ant to appejr more conspicuous than nanal these daya of excessive perspiration. Jnst get an ounce of mereoliaed wax at any drugstore and nse it like cold cream. Tela wtl help anv akin at once and In a week or so the complexion will look remarkably clear, yonng and healthy.
