Ah, yes. Trivial because we understand our little part. But the big , part is 'also trivial because that, too, is understood by someone. Art, to the clod, means the expression of a superior mind the artist a superior person. - .... , , . Engineering is the feat of a super-mind in the eyes of a theologian, perhaps. To him an engineer is the cream from the milk of life. Music! Is it a divine gift from heaven? Is the musician inspired by a higher power? Wre respect him. But never does it occur to us that the clerk, or the dressmaker, or the manufacturer of woodenware, the boilermaker, or the telephone operator, or the elevator man, or the office boy is just as important in his business of life as the artist, or musician, or the engineer. Master minds? Surely there are a few, for they do the thing which many others are trying to do, in a superior, masterful way. But the king and the clown are more or less alike. Each fills his place among people; each as necessary as the other. A pause iij this busy life! And we see that the magnificent scheme fits us to its need. We. cannot carry on this business of life without the great executives neither can we go on without the office boy and all the workers between. Are you giving to Life the best there is in you? If you are just shuffling through you are a cheat, no matter how im portant your position may seem to the world. But if you give the best there is in you even to the most menial work, then you arc an important person. . .... .u- We arc all workers for eternity and every little task means something, though we may not understand it Our duty is not alone to our earthly employers, but to ourselves and the great business of life then employers cannot help but benefit, and the world shall reap the reward. be shared with three or four others, and used in shifts.

Under a heading "How Girls Should Be Grouped," the booklet goes on to say: First Young girls should live in groups where they can have social life and opportunity to entertain their friends, but still be under some of the restrictions of the home.

Where are the women and girls going to live who are flocking to the ever-growing munition and uniform factories? As an answer to this question a booklet of definite suggestions is be ing distributed to 7,000 manufacturers in this country by the housing com mittee of the War Work council of tho V. W. C: A., of which Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, jr., is chairman. The book is a summary of suggestions that the committee has made to Sec retary of ,War Baker and Otto Eid litz, chairman of the housing com mittee of the Council of National Defense. A bill is to come before congress soon 'for' an appropriation of many millions for emergency housing in connection with the war 'industries. The Y. W. C. A.'s interesc.in such a bill is to see that part of such an appropriation be spent , on housing provision for the unattached woman and girl working in the war indus- The floor and roof space of these factories is being extended to nouse tti increased machinery and eauio- ment. But no provision is being made to house the workers, the Y. W. C. A. points out. For the single girl -or woman worker, the situation is particularly bad. A bed has come to be the only home these girls know. Often it must Society Women Soldierettes Drill in County Court House Right about face! Attention! Omaha has just suffered a surp.ise attack.
