oa three grades were made by pupils
in this way. This department has be
come known as the "opportunity

been encouraged to improve themselves
to the fullest extent by going away to
school and otherwise improving tbeir
equipment for their work.

S1230 Asked of Board.
At the request of the board of gov
ernors of the Rose Festival Associa
tion, headed by President Klmery Olm
stead and General Manager Phil Bates,
the School Board voted $1250 to be
expended in the parade of school chil
dren, a feature of Rose Festival week.
Two minor requests, that the grounds
of the Ladd School be used for the
erection of a grandstand for putting on
songs and choruses during the Festival
and used in connection with the Park
blocks south from the Arlington Club,
and that use be made of the Ladd and
Lincoln High School as public com
fort stations, were also granted.
Klmery Olmstead and Phil Bates ad
dressed the Board.
MT Needed for Parades.
Mr. Olmstead called attention to the
fact that the city has voted J1000 for
the Festival and Mr. Bates said he
realized the request was without prece.
dent, but the money was needed to
present the children's parade In credit
able fashion and the money would be
allotted to the various schools.
Dr. Alan Welch Smith supported the
movement and said It appeared to him
like a parent clothing its own child. He
moved the appropriation be made and
O. M. Plummer seconded It. J. V. Beach
said he did not oppose the passage
of the motion, but said that a business
nu could better vote for it than a
lawyer, as to the latter such a move
would be to stultlf- oneself.

"An officer, about to take the train
to rejoin his regiment, was accosted
by a pretty girl, who blushlngly asked
if he would post a letter for her at
Paris so i-t would arrive more quickly

"Before reaching" Paris the officer
had time to reflect upon some of the
curious circumstances of the affair.
He pulled the letter out of his pocket
andi found the address read, 'JCadame

had told him she was writing to her
sweetheart. 'Madame X ,' in that
case, could only be an intermediary.
"He reasoned that the peculiar cir
cumstances justified him in looking
into the letter. He opened it and read:
"'My Dear Friend: Contrary to the
Information I have already given you,
my aunt. Jane, will be at Z with
her baggage on the 2d. You know

"The officer needed no more, but
carried the letter to the intelligence

that this letter reported the arrival of
important French -reinforcements at a
critical point on the battle front."
