A birtluliiy ball In every community In the United Stales In hnor of President Roosevelt on his 52nd annl

The proceeds go V an endowment for the natoln-wltle work of the Warm Springs Foundation for Infantile

hereabouts, there has never been a
winter to equal this one for mild
ness. Up to date but very few
frosty days and nights, very little
fog, and yet plenty of moisture in
the shape of rain. Mild winters we
have had, of course, but there have
been drops in the temperature and
for a week or two or three at a
time the ground was frozen, and
there would likely be some snow,
this to be followed by a mild Janu

what the next few weeks will de
velop we will not attempt to say,
and shall not borrow trouble over
it, yet there is time for a lot of bad
weather and severe freezes have
visited us in both February and
March in the years of the past.
May we hope that the unusual con
ditions of fine weather will continue
and that there will be nothing to
cause us to weep later on.
