DUKE OF GENOA" SUBS"
By Henry Wood
(United Press Staff Correspondent.
Rome, Jan. 20. -(By mail) Tho
Duke of Genoa who "subs" as King
at the (jtiirinnl while Victor Emanuel
is at the front, is fast proving himself
a formidable rival of the latter for the
affections of the Italians people. King
I Victor, however, seems in no way dis
I turbed. Bight months ago he asked
! his august uncle to come down to Rome
jand "sit in" for him. Until his return
j f rom the Italian front this week thi)
ning nnd not even returned to Home
to see how his "sub" was getting
away with the job. There is perhaps
no other royal family in Kurope whose
members would do such a thing. The
House of Savoy now includes, besides
King Victor and the Duke of (lenoa,
the Duke of the Abruzzi, the Duke of
Aosta and the Count of Turin. The
five are cronies. Knrh has had the
rigid military or naval training re
quired of every male member of the
House and each is considered compe
tent to be king. Victor would just as
soon trust one ns the other. He chose
the Duke of Genoa because he was the
eldest. He figured the younger ones
could better serve Italy in their respec
tive positions us military and naval
commanders. The choice met with dis
approval only from the Duke himself.
"I know 1 am getting old," he said
wistfully to the court functionaries.
who welcomed him to the throne, "but!
my hand would rather have grasped the!
sword than the pea that must sign royal
King Victor has ever been known as!
the most democratic sovereign in '
Kurope, although perhaps the title of i
Soldier King would heller suit him.
His "sub" has gone him one better
for democracy and won for himself the :
sobriquet of the Civilian King.
The nearest the Duke of (lenoa came
to accepting any of the kindly per-'
quisities that go with his job, is at 4'
each dny when he goes for his drive 1
in the country. Four cavalrymen sur- !
round his carriage am! a corps of,
bicycle guards follow. The police I
won't let him drive unless he accepts
this escort. j
In the evening he makes up for it ;
by walking about the streets of Rome,
in civilian clothes, accompanied onlv i
by his chief uid-rtc-cninp. lie traverses
the principal streets and window shops
as he goes along.
It was while amusing himself this
way one evening that Ihe Duke saw a
street cur collide with a fat woma.i.
Of all the men who leaped to her as-1
sislanee, the Duke got there first. She.
was quite uninjured but the Duke,
bundled her off to a hospital before
she knew who had helped her. j
Half an hour later, when the Duke
returned to the Quirinul ho sent his
aide to the hospital to niaf.o certain j
she really was not injured. !
When the Duke comes down to:
Rome to "sit in" for his nephew as,
king he does not bring his family with ,
him. His nearest relative here is hist
sister, (Jueen Mother Margherita and .
he never tires of-visiting her hospitals!
ami charity works with her. j
The Duke comes nearest to being
king on Thursdays and Sundays, when
the ministers bring the various decrees j
to him for his vicarious royal signatur". I
It is then that he gets first hand in - j
formation from the prime minister, the
minister of war and the minister of j
marine on the conduct of hostilities.!
The minister of marine especially
never fails to bring him some news i
about his son, the Prince of I'dine.
who is commanding a squadron of sub
marines. The Duke's new job brought back to
public memory the fact that his wife
is a German princess. She and all of
tho children however, are loyally
Once a week the duke tries to get
away and go home to see them. It was

Sleeveless nighties, ankle short
Are the new alluring sort;
In them Sue's so sweet a sight,
'Tis a shame to douse the light.
New York, Jan. 2!). The newest
nighties are hound to be a source of
vexation to those unfortunates whose
vaccinations are thus laid bare either
by the lack of sleeve or the lack of
length. But who can deny that they
are adorable? It takes little material
but lots of art to evolve them and a
little nerve and lots of chnrm to
wear 'em. About the only way you
can tell a nightie from a chemise these
days and nights is by inches. The
chemise is cut just above the knee and
the nightie just below it. It is true
that most of the nighties actually blush
for their own .shortcomings and this ;
beautiful blush pink dyes them whether
they be of sheer batiste crepe de chine ,
or the new wash satin. It takes lots!
of sibilants to describe them and but !
little else sheer, short, sleeveless and
simple will do the work and there you j
have it. Just to be consistently short !
in every respect the new nighties are1
also short waisted and the empire
waist line is shown on all the smartest j
models. Narrow lace edgings outlining j
the nrmholcs and low neck line; briar,

THE BATTLE OF BLENHEIM
The following poem was written by
Robert Southey, the English poet, over
a century ago. The lesson it imparts
is as timely now as it was than. The
subject of it was the famous battle of
Blenheim, which was fought August l.'l,
1704, but it might as well have been
any other great battle.
The Battle of Blenheim.
It was a summer evening
Old Kasper's work was done,
And he before his cottage door
Was sitting in the sun;
And by him sported on the green
His liitle grandchild Wilhelinine.
She snw her brother Peterkia
Roll something large and round, j
Which he beside the rivulet.
In playing there had found;
lie came to ask what he had found i
That was so large and smooth and
Old Kasper took it from the boy
Who stood expectant by;
And then the old man shook his head,
And, with a natural sigh
'"Tis some poor fellow's skull,'' said
"Who fell in the great victory."
"I find them in the garden.
For there's many hereabouts;
And often when I go to plow.
The plowshare turns them out; !
For many thniisniul men,'' said he. j
"Were slain in the great victory." i
"Now tell us what 't was all about,"
Young Peterkin he cries; .
And little Wilhelniiue looks up
With wonder-waiting eyes
" Now tell us all about the war,
And what they fought each other for."
"It was the Knglish," Kasper cried,
"Who put the French to rout;
But what they fought each other for
T could not well make out; ,
But everybody said." ipiothe he,
"That 't was a famous victory."
"My father .lived at Blenheim then,
Yon little stream hard bv;
Thev burned his dwelling to the ground
And he was forced to fly;
So with his wife and child he fled,
Nor had not where to res; his head."
"With fire and sword the country
Was wasted far imd wide;
And many a childing mother there, I
And new born baby died; 1
Bet things like that, vou know must be
After a famous victory."
"They sav it was a chucking siu'it ;
After the field was won .
Fur many thousand bodies here I
Lay rotting in the sun; !
But things like that, vou Know, must be!
After a famous victory."'
"limit praise the Duke of Marlborough !
I smoking or embroidery in pink or bine,
'are nil the ornamentations permissible
i on these shaste little sleeping garments
! of the moment. They must be highly i
I hygienic, allowing ns thev do for so
much fresh air, but one shudders to
think how soon these ducks of nighties
will become an extinct species along
with the Do Do Bird and other rare
avis if thev keep on dwindling away
to nothing in this reckless way they
have begun. As for caps to top the
dishevelled matutinal locks of milady
fair, they are getting reckless too.
Time was when a boudoir cap meant a
coquettish little morsel of ribbon and
lace and net, or at most, pastel tinted
bits of chiffon or crepe de chine.
Nowadays one must be. coiffed like a
gypsy or one of the li'mi-iaa ballet in
vivid lined silks twisted in turban
shapes, or wierd and oriental head
dresses. One cunning model that turns
you into a snow maid or a fluffy white
kitten is made of white wash satin
gathered up into a rosette on lop of
the head and topped with a fluffy ball
of swansdown. Fluffs of swnnsdown
alternating with a tiny French ribbon
roses frame the face. These swansdown
trimmed caps are also charming when
combined with satin of delicate tints
and are verily far more fascinating
when up on my lady's head than when
down on the swan's.
And our good Prince Kugeue."
"Why, t' was a very wicked thing
Said little Wilhelniine.
"Nay, nay my little girl!" ipioth he, j
"It was a famous victory.
"And everybody praised the duke
Who this great fight did win."
"But what good came of it ut lust?'
tuotli little Peterkin.
"Why, that I cannot tell," said he,
"But 't was a famous victory."

These were some of the statements i
of Charles F. Berg, of Portland, who
spoke before the class in advertising
at the state university.
"The Kconomic Justification of Ad
evrtising," was the title of Mr. Berg's
"Does advertising pay?" I
This was the current running through!
the theme and the speaker backed each I
rcmnrk and statement with an iibuiid-
mice of facts which proved conclusively j
that advertising through the columns
of the daily newspaper, periodical and
magazine is profitable for the adver
tiser. The value of an advertised brand, a
trade murk, a name that has beenl
placed before the public in such a way
that everyone knows the article and
knows thnt it stands for superiority in
tiiat particular nrticle, was one of the
values of skillful advertising on which
Mr. Berg laid great stress. The success
of large companies who had put their
wares on the market was given as an
illustration of consistent advertising,
"Annually millions of dollars' worth
of labor-saving machinery are sold
through the medium of the press." In
