for the republicans. Even many of

The election was noteworthy in
one respect, In that the fire-eating

absence. Let us have more elections

speechless campaign and hereafter
they should become popular.
But President Wilson mistook the
patriotism and courage of the Amer
ican people when he asked that they
return him a certain brand of con-
gressmen. It is a safe prediction
that those who composed the major
ity vote in the late election are
among the foremost citizens in re

Close Harmony Under
THE men had finished supper, and sat around in listless
groups. Even when a shell went zooming overhead they
showed no interest They were fed up on this war.
A little gray car chugged up the hill to their camp. Two war
work men stepped out, carrying between them a curious long box.
"What you got there?" asked the doughboys.
"Well, can you beat that 1"
"We've come to give you a little entertainment, said one man.
"You bet it's all right," answered a young officer. "This gang
hasn't seen a soul from the outside world for weeks. . Go as far
as you like."
And they did.
They sang the new songs, just over from Broadway. In a
minute the whole camp was singing them. Then they sang the
verse of a good old close-harmony melody, and the crowd roared
the chorus. i r r
"But haven't you'men got anybody who can sing?" asked on
of the entertainers. The response was immediate and over
whelming. ' "Sure we have! Oh, you Shorty! Come on, Happyl Give 'em
that 'Perfect Day, Billl"
And then things really started

officer. "We cant get too much of it!"
"So long!" yelled the men. "Good luck! Come again!"
Wherever there are American soldiers overseas, these organ
izations are carrying entertainment to them. Movies, concerts,
lectures, local talent, even full-fledged comedies with a truck for
the stage, from the simplest sing-songs in the woods to the most
elaborate program in city theatres, everywhere free entertain
ment is provided to meet conditions.
