es. Matron and maid alike have been
forced to eek diversion of an extreme
ly simple nature within the four wa'ls
f home, or possibly those of in '.-
ate friend. A cosy fireside, the ever
faithful knitting needles, the crisp

friends in need, when we must all fall

The many admirers of Miss Mary
Schultz, gifted Salem violinist, will be
interested to hear that ghe is continu
ing her musical studies this winter in
New York under Alexander Bloch, the
assistant of Leopold Auer, one of the
foremost, violinists of the country. A
spleadid opportunity for co-operative
study was afforded Miss Sehulta this
summer, when she joined a summer
musical colony situated at Lake George
New Tork, which was composed of the
violin classes of both Mr. Bloch and
Professor Auer. Miss (Schultz plans
evenutally to return to tne coast to
follow her art professionally.
Residing with Mis Schulta in New
Tork is her sister, Miss Elizabeth
Schultz, another well known alein
girl, who is now connected with the
New York branch of the Hood River
Valley Apple association. Her work is
of a most absorbing nature, and one
that naturally keeps her in more or less
close touch with the Oregon country
and conditions here.
Miss Kuth Schultz, another sister, is
at the Bremerton navy yards in Wash
ington, where she holds a position,
nowadays envied of all girls aspiring
toward that branch of the service, that
of Yeomanette. Miss Schultz left Sa
lem late this summer for Bremerton.
.Though owing to the recent orders
of Mayor Baker of Portland prohibit
ing any large gatherings, it was impos
sible to assemble representatives of
the various women's organizations of
Portland to hear Mrs. Henry P. Dav
ison of New York, national chairman
of the woman's committee of the Unit
ed War Work campaign, on the occa
sion of her Portland visit Wednesday
Mrs. Davison addressed instead three
small groups, wo gathered at the
homes of Mrs. Helen Ladd Corbett,
Mrs. J. C. Costetlo and Mrs. Julius
Mrs. Davison is touring the coast
for the purpose of uniting women in
the different communities in the cam
paign for $170,000,000 which will be
made next month by united war activ
ties. At each meeting she gave the women
assembled a short history of the de
velopment of the woman's committee
and outlined the many avenues along
which the work of the women in the
second lirie of defenso is reaching the
women near the front.
"1 brina a message from the women
at the front to the women behind the
lines," said Mrs. Davison yesterday.
"This message Is an appeal for more
in the line of recreational work among
the women who are replacing men in
the war industries.
"Only few weeks ago an appeal
was made to the. Y. W. O. A. by Chair
man Fosdick, of the war camp commu
nity service, for relief on the grave
situation now confronting Wasehington
D. C. Over 80 per cent of the girls em
ployed in government work are leaving
the capital weekly because of the poor
housing conditions and the lack of rec
reational advantages. To relieve this
situation through the government would
mean to put the matter before con
gress and faea a delay that would be
disastrous at this moment, Thus the ap
peal has come direet to the Y. W. C. A.
and the on tire responsibility in the
matter is turned over to us. .
"The girls have been thrust into
munition factories wheh have sprung
up in iaolatod districts and they find
themselves with only the rudest com
forts and nothing to vary tne monot
ony of the torrifo strain of the work.
As fast as we can we are relieving this
situation with recreation centers, plac
es often of rudo construction but con
taining a bright spot with a piano and
a trained worker to inspire amusement
at the end of the day."
Attracting much attention from leis
urely shoppers these inviting sunny af
ternoons of late fall Is the brilliant
dahlia display with its corresponding
splash of gorgeous colorings, now on
exhibit in the windows of the Capital
Drug store. The blooms are grown by
Mrs. F. L. Purvine and by reason of
their, exceptional markings are arous
ing considerable enthusiasm on the
part of local dahlia lovers. All shades
from the royal purple to the apple bios-'
som pink are in regal evidence, includ
ing such novelties as tho Mverbeer,
Van Dyke, Edith Carter and Holman
Hunt. 'Mrs. Purvine also had a hand
some exhibit of blooms at the state
fair this year.
Mrs. James Cripps of Salem and her
slater, Mr. Ouil Lindsey of Los Ange
les, are passing the week in Portland
as tho guests of Mrs. J. H. Newkirk
and Mrs. D, P. Johnson.
Mrs. Jesse Johns has received word
from her brother, James Cripps, who
is stationed at Camp Kustia, Virginia,
that he has been appointed to the rank
of non-commissioned officer. Mr.
Cripps is a. Salem boy having entrain
ed for the east July fifth.
Though scattered contingents of
girls and women throughout the coun
try have proven their loyalty to the
government during the past season by
helping to harvest the erops, and in
agricultural regions assisting consider
ably with the accessary work on the
farms, where man-labor has been draft

During the training Wellesley was

rection of Misa Edith Diehl, a Welles
ley graduate and bn'ce a New York
business woman the training camp has
made a scientific study of the proper
housing, clothing and feeding of this
new species of the new woman the
farmerette. It has even set the fash
ion in farmerette boots, selecting a
stout, flat heeled, high laced shoe,
with fluted tongue to keep out sand
and gravel. This shoe, which will be
considered "de Tigeur" by farmerettes
next year, is a modification of the
Munsen army last and is sufficiently
feminized to make it smart as well as
In-the matter of dress. Miss Diehl
has worked out a farmerette costume,
consisting of feminised overalls and
a jaunty coat to be thrown over them
at the girl goes to and from the fields.
Miss Buth Field, a graduate of Wil
