I "IT PA YS TO ADVERTISE"
I N these times of war, the natural demand in the
recreation field is for something amusing. "It
Pays to Advertise," which Cohan and Harris will
H present at the Salt Lake theatre December 19
fl and 20, is said to meet this demand. While it is
fl a business play and therefore appeals to men,
fl the plot is also romantic enough to win the en
fl thusiasm of the feminine portion of the audience.
fl The farce is by Rol Cooper Megrue and Walter
H Hackett.

fl MAY THE BEST LADY WIN
IN keeping with a custom as old as the govern
ment itself, the mistress of the White House
has always enjoyed the venerable distinction of
fl being considered the first lady of the land. This
fl fine old tradition has so fastened itself upon the
sentiments of the American people" that it has
fl been preserved in its entirety right down to the
B present day. By virtue of her position, the wife
B of the president becomes supreme in her sphero
B Qd dominates the social functions of official cir-
B cles'
B With few exceptions, the women who have oc
B cupied this exalted position have never been
B vexed by ambitious rivals. Officialdom frowns
H upon such rash undertakings and, besides, the.
B accepted social arbiter always enjoys the advan
B taBe of position. The rule has been that su
H premacy has been maintained, not through a re
sort to the powerful prerogatives at the disposal
of the first lady of the land, but by the exercise
of rare dignity and deference in the discharge
of the duties involved. Notable is the case of
Dolly Madison, who conquered official Washing
ton with the charm of her winning personality
and commanded the court circles through sheer
genius and the social graces.
It is said that the present mistress of the
White House is richly endowed with those rare
womanly qualities that have marked so many of
her distinguished predecessors. She is well
equipped to command by virtue of her own In
herent charms and calculative propensities, and
should be equal to any occasion. This is fortu
nate for she will soon be called upon to act a dif
ficult role.. A new order of things is likely to be
instituted in the social circles over which she
now holds sway and all Washington is agog over
the prospects.
The Lady from Montana will soon arrive upon
the scene. She is a personage to be reckoned
with. When she enters the halls of congress and
takes the oath of office a tradition dating back
to the birth of the republic will be shattered.
Miss Rankin is to all accounts a serious minded
person and the probabilities are that she will con
fine her activities to the business of represent
ing her people back home. Still there will bo the
observance of the official and social amenities
8 from which she cannot very well escape, were
she so inclined, and the problem will be to accord
her the proper recognition. The difficulties in
volved will depend largely upon the attitude as
sumed by the congresswoman herself. It may
be that she will waive all formalities and accept
whatever rank is accorded her. Then again, she
may take another view of the situation and if
she does she will upset all official calculations in
short order. For that is her style. When she
starts in a certain direction she always takes the
shortest cut. And if she happens to stumble upon
a precedent Bhe simply kicks it out of the way
and goes on about her business.
No wonder Washington is perplexed. But the
young lady from the plains has the winning west
ern ways about her and is entirely capable of
caring for herself. She expects no favors and
asks nothing but fair play. Officially, she will bo
the first lady of Washington. But what will her
social rank be? The situation is most delicate,
and holds extraordinary possibilities.
LIBERATIS SACRA FAMES
By Oscar Wilde.
Albeit nurtured in Democracy,
And liking best that state Republican
Where every man is Kinglike and no man
Is crowned above his fellows, yet I see,
Spite of this modern fret for Liberty,
Better the rule of one whom all obey,
Than to let clamorous demogogues betray
Our freedom with the kiss of anarchy.
Wherefore I love them not whose hands
profane
Plant the red flag upon the piled up street
For no right cause, beneath whose ignorant
reign
Arts, Culture, Reverence, Honor, all things
fade,
Save Treason and the dagger of her trade,
-Or Murder with his silent, bloody feet.
TO THE MOON
Art thou pale for weariness
Of clim'bing heaven, and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,
And ever-changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?
Percy Bysshe Shelley.
