THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALE1L OREGON. SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 1919.
By GERTRUDE ROBISOI
REMKMBER, a long time ago, when
you were a "freshman" at high
m school and were studying Gold-
nutn tueserted Village" how the
passage "the loud laugh thiit spoke
me vacant mind" always brought
forth a lecture from the insirue or?
And from rnfined laughter the lecture
mays swung to other testa of "lady-
likeness" and Snvariably- concluded
with; the admonition i"And never,
never, never whether it is the trutffl
or not say that you do not care for
poetry and music or children! " I often
wondered why she omitted flowers,
nd dragonflieg and the wind that cries
at night, but I've learned since that
all those things come under the head
of "poetry and music." .Which brings
me to what l nvgan to write about.
., It's going to happen in the armory
next Wednesday all the nrasie that
your heart can bearl The uniforms of
the players will not resemble any band
uniform you have ever seen nor the
musicians any musicians that you have
ever met. And the music! It will be
juite different from any music you
have ever heard, altogether different
from any you will ever hear again.
It will toll you, that music, of long
lines of horizon-blue clad warriors
wingitrg down the Paris streets; it
will whisper very gently, with a half
smothered sob now and then, of the
little lost towns and ruined villages,
where lonely Madwnnas and Crucified
Christ s kept faithful watch for four
long years. Ylpres and Verdun and the
fcaukg of the Marne; Belleau Wood and
the Rouge Boquot, -Calvary ronds and
mud toakod trenches; blood spattered
days that passed into woeks, weeks
that rounded into months, months that
dragged themselves out into years
ine, two, three of them, until even
Ood jrrew tired of waiting and sent a
J)vii in the form of an olive drab
jarmy, to smito the modern Philistine
'and restore peaiee to the world. Of all
those things, the music will tell you,
and of a great many more. .
Listening very elosoly you shall hear
tho droning of the drajjonflits among
the rushes of the Oureq or Bione may
be, if you have not allowed yourself
to becomo a stranger In the Land of
Make Believe you can close your eyes
and eaten a glint of their gossamer
wings. You Khali hear the wind calling
through the ragged poplar trees, or
grieving tmonfc the little wooden
crosses in the poppy grown cemeteries.
Heroes all these forty battle scar
red musicians from the martyr land of
Prance! Horoeg, in their jaunty little
caps and odd bright uniforms. Count
their wound stripes and their distin
guished service medals and then go
down on your knees when you reach
your home, that night, and thank Clod
that it was your country that turned
the trench scarred fielos into yellow
wheatlands again end healed with its
own hearts blood, the Weeding heart
of i ranee
And you'll never, never, never, af
ter listening to the French army band
next Wednesday, say that you do not
care for children or poetry or music I

business session, as there is, in addi

I'm wondering what Salem, Oregon,
women thiuik of the latest campaign,
of the Woman's Republican club in
Now -York. Woman's Republican clubs
are always starting somethings did you
ever noticef They don't, of course,
throw brickg at plate glass windows,
or go on hunger strikes, like the Dub
lin suffragists, because they perhaps
know tho value of plate glass, and arc
not burdened with the real and imag
inary wrongs of their warmer temper
ed sisters. Bub every once in a while,
when a war or extra session of con
gress ig occupying too much of the
people1 time, they hurl a social bomb
shell at tho unsuspecting public. They
are, however, to be compkimentel on
the ingeniity of their latest campaign
to prohibit the display in shop win
dows, of those articles of feminine ap
parel that are made to be worn and
not seen. They are fully determined to
save returned soldiers from the awful
peril of loitering before shop windows
and gazing at displays of pink and
bluo what-you-may-call-'em. Shopkeep
ers , though, maintain that it isn't
the men who cluster about the show
windows, but the women thcniseives,

It's a wonderful trait to possess
that of forgetting to grow up.
Miss Marion Richmond, who enter

in the public library this morning,
seems to be the happy possessor of
just such a birthright uid for two
hours, sho held the little ones, wTIo
clustered about her, enthralled with
her happy interpretation of "Peter

Richmond that make the -weekly
"story hour" such a success.
The Corvallis Woman's club is al
ready making iplans for tho next meet
ing of the Oregon 'Federation of 'Wo-

In a long chase for a criminal, J. E.
lories, a secret service man of Chicago,
wore one pair of shoes with Neolin
Soles for nineteen months. This chase
covering both American continents
and Australia, ended in April, 1917.
The shoes were then given a mechanic
at Clearing, IU.. and were worn by
him another seven months.
"Until I discovered shoes with
Neolin Soles, I bought new shoes about
every two months, said Mr. Jones.
Twenty-six months of wear under
conditions such as these is indeed
extraordinary even for Neolin Soles.
But Neolin Soles are made by Science
to be especially durable. They are
comfortable and waterproof, too. You
can get them on new shoes for men,
women and children, or for re-soling.

home of the ehoir's president, B. E.

Music and singing, helped to make the
affair one of complete enjoyment.
