pn the subject of discipline." .

luncheon, with the result that the child is left to
servants, becomes ; unruly and finally bosses the
'whole household. - . ., . ,' , "
"The old saw; 'Spare the rod and spoil the
child,' isn't true, but neither does the blanket
statement that no child .should .ever be spanked
apply to all children tinder all circumstances."
Dr. Coffee made a strong plea for personal
service in dealing with delinquent boys. "Don't
give of your purse but' your ' personality," he
pleaded, playing upon the, first syllable of the
word. . '.
"The great trouble with all work with Juvenile
delinquents up to date has been that it was mostly
remedial. This is the hour of preventive work."

According to Dr. Coffee, the word .' charity" is
the most abused, hateful and corrupted woAl of
the twentieth century. -
But to continue with the child problem, today
is Child Labor Sunday and from pulpits all over
the country, interest in the pending federal bill,
the Keating-Owen child labor bill, will be aroused.

WHICH would you choose, work or play,
if you had Just oodles of money,
friends who. were legion, youth,
beauty and charm to the greatest de;
greet 1 The "plays" have it, of course,
you say. Not so Miss Frances Nash, daughter of
Mrs. E. w: Nash, who in Joint recital with Georg
Hamlin, will be at the Boyd theater next Sunday.
lx)ng hours spent at the piano practicing, days and
nights of tedious travel and discomfort in order to
appear In different cities and a distinct interest in
all musical affairs has been the choice of Miss Nash,
Instead of the role of social queen awaiting her
upon her return from abroad.
Miss Nash's rise in the musical world since her
debut with the Dresden PhUharmonle orchestra,.
Just prior to her return ; to" this country last year,
t and her achievements in that short space of time
in this country have been most remarkable.
Her success and the unstinted admiration and -even
adultatlon which has been showered upon her
, have bad not the slightest effect upon a nature
most retiring and self-effacing' and' a disposition
approaching timidity. Enjoying the social position
she does as a member of the Nash family, here Is a
you g girl who has never Indulge In the froth an
the bubble but gives vent to her rare musical
talents by seeking her own career.
What she has achieved has not turned the small"
head of this earnest art student. Indeed Miss Nasb
has a way of belittling her own accomplishments In
the most i dazing fashion.
"Every one is so kind to nie here, they are like

my German frauleln" (Miss Nash's companion).
"She says everything I do is done so well, that I
peak German beautifully when I know 7 speak it
sretchedly. 'When I look badly, she always tells
mo how well I look. But I can't four-flush, to use
a slang expression in Omaha. Everyone here knows
me so well they would call my bluff," she . ex
claimed. Miss Nash says she likes best to play for the
home audiences knowing she is among friends, but
she admits there is also a great deal of pleasure In
rppeartng in a new city where she is practically un
known and the audience is cold and to have them
grow responsive after she has won them over by
ber playing. .
Miss Nash spent three years studying with the
masters In Germany, both at Dresden and Berlin,
sod has ever so many Interesting tales of student
days to tell, would she but tell them. One In par
ticular is the story of the monster students' protest
meeting that was called by the American students
in Berlin when a musical celebrity returned to thli
country and made a statement to the effect that
American students pursuing music in Germany
were sans morals and san lots of other things they
ought to possess, that they went abroad for a good
time aM did no studying whatever. Miss Nash
forgot her shyness completely and her dark eyes
glowed until they lit up her whole face while she
was telling of the fiery speeches made on that oc
'raslon. Rare social opportunities were enjoyed by Miss '
Nash in Germany, for the sister of tbe young
woman with whom she went abroad was married to
a German count who had a position at court and
who, since the Germans have occupied it, is the
governor of Poland. Miss Nash was not received
at court, but was present as a guest at many court
f i notions.
Miss Nash is a most devoted aunt. While being
interviewed a party of small nephews and nieces
ho had come over to grandmother's to spend the
afternoon, made a great to-do. Aunt Frances went
Into tbe hall and with a low word immediately
quieted. tbe small riot. Miss Nash Is. an enthusi
astic horsewoman and is often seen on ber favorite
Not only her own music concerns Miss Nash,
but musical affairs all over the country are of in
tense Interest to her and she scans "Musical Amer
ica" and other magazines of the art like tbe veriest
professional. Miss Nash has autographed photo
graphs and other personal tributes from many of
the leading orchestra conductors, Including Emil
Oberhoffer of the Minneapolis Symphony orchestra,
Carl Busch, director of the Kansas Clfy Symphony
orchestra, and William Olsen of the Dresden PhU
harmonle orchestra with which Miss Nash made her
Miss Nash plays today with the Minneapolis
Symphony orchestra and then at Prairie Du Chien,
Wis., and Omaha, later Denver, Detroit and Duluth
and In the early spring, will have severtl eastern
appearances with one of the largest eastern orchestras.

THE eagerly awaited Hoxle Clark dance
at the Fontenelle comes Monday even
ing, the biggest event of tbe sort stnee
the A. V. Kinslers' affair for the Cow
gills. There are whispers and rumors of the new
gowns and dancing frocks and startling ' crea
tions with the side extension effects. "But, Prov
idence grant," tbe cynlo of Omaha has already
said, "that it shall be the tall, slender women who
wear them." -
"One thing sure," a costumer says, "the, skirts
will be short."
"Indeed, mine shall be," a matron Interrupted;
' I'm not sending my skirts, por bodices either, to
the Home Economics department of the Woman's
club for expurgation."
The diners at the dinners preceding the danoes"
iray dine with their eyes upon the clock,, but
nothing indicates tbe lessening popularity of these
events they seem to increase in number before
each dance' as the season advances. Seven dinners
are already on tbe register for tbe dance of Mon
day evening. The O. C. Redlcks, the William
Tracy Burns, the Glen, Whartona, the Samuel
Burns, Dr. LeRoy Crummer, the John T. Stewarts,
end the Walter Pages, all d'ne with guests before
tolng to the Clarke dance.
Wednesday afternoon Mrs. Douglas Welptoa
gives her reception to over 200 guests.
It is not unlikely that the week will see a few
unexpected affairs, to be charged to the quick
change In weather, that is, if another hard freeze
does not come the next few days. Many affairs
were put off In expectation of skating parties,
planned for all this week.
A very pretty maid with the smartest of skating
costumes, the trimmest of tiny feet, and (raoe
that never shows better than when on the ice? de
clares that Omaha is unfit for winter habitation
until someone constructs, a rink with "ammonia
pipes, or whatever It Is that freezes the water.
It seems rather premature to speak of aa event
a full week hence; but I can't forbear mentioning
that all the boxes to the Frances Nash eoaoart at
the Boyd theater on Sunday, January tO, arw a.1-
