JUST GOSSIP ABOUT PEOPLE
Nancy Wynne Speaks of the Return Home of Several Men Who
Have Been Mustered Out Some Are on Leave.
She Talks of Next Year's Debutantes
WITH the close of the holidays and the
return of the youngsters to their vari
ous schools and colleKes, entertaining on
tho Main Lino has taken sortVf a slump.
Tho women are nil busy attain with their
different kinds of ,war work, particularly
tho canteen service. Every day brines
more and more returned men. Families
are Betting the most thrilling surprises In
the form of cablegrams and telephone mes
sages telling of the return of somebody
from tho war, and sometimes the man him
self. In some cases they have received
their marching orders so quickly that they
have not had tlmo to communicate with
their family and Just arrive!
Some of the men who have been mus
tered out of tho service are Major Archi
bald Barkllo, of Invor House, Wayne;
Colonel Robert B. Montgomery, of Ardres
san, Radnor: Ensign William A. Rolln, of
Strafford: Lieutenant John Forsyth Meigs,
2d. of Ithan: Lieutenant F. G. Roberts, of
Havcrford; Captain Faul Denckla Mills, of
St. Davids, and Major Burton Chance, of
Radnor. Mr. Georgo L. Justice and Mr.
Samuel Chew, who were doing Red Cross
work, havo also returned. Major John R.
Valentine expects to be murtereel out tho
end of this month, and ho and Mrs. Valen
tine nro going South for a few weeks. Mrs.
Channlnc Daniel, who will bo remembered
as Katherlno Verner, of Wayne, has had a
cable from her husband, Lieutenant
Daniel, stating that ho is on the way
homo. Lieutenant W. Kemble Yarrow, of
Strafford, who has been In the sen-Ice for
twenty-two months, Is expected to arrive
any day, and Major Anthony Geyelln ar
rive at his home In Bryn Mpwr this week.
rT MUST bj hard for tho kiddles to go
back to school after such a good time
In the holidays, for with tho armistice
every ono seemed to feel as if they could
begin again to entertain, and It being holl- .
day time for tho children, they promptly
did. Luncheons and theatre parties, din
ners and dances ono after another, until
1 should think study would be a hard thing
to take up ngaln.
My, but some of those girls around fif
teen and sixteen are pretty! I saw Rose
mary Howe for tho first time since she
' has been wearing evening frocks the other
night nt a dance, and attractive? My
dears, I should say so! She has tho love
liest curly hair and such v. pretty littlo
She had on a frock of pale blue tulle
trimmed with silver bands and tiny pink
rosebuds, and she danced beautifully. That
young lady is sure to bo some belle when
ehe comes out! She is tho daughter of
Mr. Arthur Howe, and her mother, who
died some years ago, was Miss May
Denckla. a tlster of Herman Denckla, so
Rosemary Is a cousin of Mary Denckla
Packard and Pauline Denckla. She has
gone back to boarding school slnco the
holidays; but nover mind, boys, she'll be
back for the Easter parties, and I doiVt
blame you ft- wanting to dance with her.
She Is so snect and pretty and has such
a lovely mat.nor.
As I heard ono mother say, "Rosemary
Is such a littlo lady."
Speaking cf future belles, did you know
that there will bo some real comlngs-out
next year? Yes, Indeed, and there cer
tainly will ho a handful of pretty girls.
There's Katherlno Coxo and Nanoy Dun
ning and Polly Thayer and Hannah El
liott! And there'll be more than over be
fore, for thoso who wero old enough to
come out this year and did not on account
of tho war will still bo young enough to
vje presented, and so thero'll be a sort of
innblA effect next season. And thero'll bo
ft number who will have big parties given
for them. So It's going to bo bomo winter,
I WAS sorry to hear that Doctor Drinker,
who is president of Lehigh University,
was rather badly injured by n, fall on the
Ice on Friday. He was taken to St. LukCs
Hospital In Bethlehem. Doctor Drinker
U the father of Ernesta Drinker, who mar
ried Willie Bullitt, and of Jimmlo Drinker,
whoso wife was Mary Frances Fisher. His
oldest son is Henry S. Drinker, Jr. He
married Sophie Hutchinson. Doctor
Drinker is such a courteous gentleman.
I hope his accident Is not very serious.
YOU know there are dances overy year
up at St. George's Ejchool, In Newport,
and girls from here always go up to them
and incidentally have tho tlmo of their
young lives. A lot of Philadelphia boys
go there to school, and of course they al
ways have to have girls from their "home
town." Peggy Thayer went up on time
last winter, do you remember, and had a
wonderful time. Well,, this year they are
Jessie Da Costa, Jano Hepburn, Ellzabet i
Jeanes, Edith Hutchinson and maybe
Sarah Duane, Sarah's mother, Mrs. Rus
sell Duane, was going with them as chap
erone, but she's rather undecided now, so

-chaperone them. But they know they
R'are going to havo one, and they also feel
erfec.Uy convinced that a marvelous
wbun: time Is waiting for them. The dance

More About a League of Nations
To the Editor of the Evening Public Ledger;
Sir Europe Is now In such a state of
flux that wo need not expect any Immediate
or early solldlllcatlon of the political elements
of which she Is composed. The mission ot
the Prcwldfnt is to help Europe to get rid
of the old balance of power system nnd suu
atltuto a league of nations, which shall ever,
more enforce penco upon the earth.
As we wore disappointed that tho war was
so long-drawn-out, so we should be prepared
for nn extended wait for the full accomplish
ment of the President's high purpose. It has
taken our Congress the biggest part of a
yiur to pass the revenue bill now on tho
stocks, so when the i'eace Congress assem
bles and gets to work It Is likely to make a
slow nnd Interrupted progress. Would It bo
a wrong guess that a league of nations will
not be formed at the (list session of the con
fetenco, but a temporary concert of the lead
ing powers will bo entered Into, and the
business carried over for a recond and maybe
a third session?
For one thing, It will tnke a full year for
tho people of Europe to he fed up. and until
they have got enough to eat they will not be
In temper to bo easily satlsfltd with any
arrangement made for their welfare.
It will tako two vears, and may tnko
longer, for Bolshevism to run Its course.
Tho President In Italy said. that tho world
will heieafter bo made up, not of great
nations, but small ones; It may bo so, but
will the wot Id bo galnir thereby? A writer
In tbo Atlantic Monthly nvors that "Europe
will tio ffirttmntn If It MCnnM n Inner uirlna I
of petty wars rising out of tho conlllctlng
historical, ethnographic, economic, religious
and political claims of these new nationali
ties." Of couiso, the President would not
have- Uncli Sam's domains cut up Into smalt
nations , oh, no.
As to the colored races of Asia and Africa,
what will bo done about them to settlo their
aspirations for self-determination of their fu
ture destinies? While settling the affairs of
Europe and securing for the people a future
of liberty, Justice and peace the dark nnd
jellow-skinned people of other continents
must not bo left out of the reckoning.
And what of tho negro In this country?
Is ho to enjoy the same liberty that the whlto
man tnjojs, or Is he to be left to the dis
comforts and humiliation of tho Jim Crow
car, to the mercy of lynching mobs of the
South, to the exclusion from trades and public
houses of the North?
Some time ago, before the nrmlstlco was
entire'd Into. I gave to your paper my views
of tlu kind of settlement that appeared to
mo to be proper Nearly everything 1 rec
ommended proved to be In accord with what
w.ih decided upon nfterward by Foch and
his advisers, but a few things, however.
were ov erleiolted. First, the sinking of the
U-boats, which I recommended; second, tho
destruction of the Krupp cannon factory;
third, the march of an army Into Rerlln.
Thcro fcvems to be no Immediate disposition
to do nny of these things, although it does
look now as If the armies of the Allies will
have to police lierlln and settle the troubles
I hole and hold tho hungry Russian hordes
from trampling over over thing In their
march for full stomachs.
Tho Pence Conference will not fulfill Its
true m'sslon until the hullw of the undersea
outlaws find their proper plnc at tho bottom
of the ocean. Tho future peace of tho world
will not bo secure unless those pirates are
ruled out bj a league of nations, and tnti
bombing of cities piohlblted from airplanes.

As to Teachers' Salaries
To the Editor of the Evening Public Ltdger:
Sir I wish to congratulate you for the
way In which you presented Superintendent
A. S. Martin's article In regard to the In
efficiency of the teachers nnd the poor salary
paid them You are especially to be com
mended when ono considers that this cam
palgn for a 25 per cent Incrnse Is strong y
urged In the city of Philadelphia, the home
of your paper. I have been opposed to this
vicious piece of legislation. I fully realise
that the teachers of this S'ate, especially In
the smaller dlstr.cts and the rural schools, are
very poorly paid for the- great service the
aro rendering to this country. Hurc'y next
to saving souls (Indirectly and directly, how
many souls have been saved just because the
Influence of some Influential teacher was ex
erted upon tho boy or girl Just at tho light"
time, for good), tho work of training tin
minds and hoJIes of the future citizens of the
State Is tho most Important work that can
bo done In the State.
It Is far better to spend tho money rnls a
by taxing tho resources of the State for educa
tion, training tho children to be good, honest,
law-abiding citizens, thnn it Is to spend It
to reform some one who has gone astray, and
that Is what we do when we build Jails and
penitentiaries nnd conllno people In them. I
am convinced that the more money spent
upon education, the less It will be necessary
to qpend upon penal Institutions and other
reformatories. 1 am heart'ly In favor of an
Increase In teachers' salaries, but fe'.l as Mi.
Martin does, that the matter should be taken
tare of in tho local school districts. I think
that I would suggest eve-n higher salaries
than he elo.s, I wou d my the teachers upon
tvvelvo months barls, that I would strongly
urge and Indue by offering a bonus, the
securing of university credits by teachers
during their summer vacation. Very sine rely,
PAUL Y. ECKERT.

HELPED SUPPLY FOOD
TO FRENCH PRISONERS
Bordeaux Girl Sent Boxes Every
Two Week- to Fifteen
Packing boxes for the French prlt-onera
hi Get many was the special form of war
work done by Miss Suzanne Dulireullh, of
Botdoaux, who camo to Philadelphia, Satur
day, with her brother-in-law, M. Emanuel
Chahtand, lecturer for the McAll Mission.
Miss Dubreullh Is a charming young
French girl, with gentle manner and keen,
For four e.ira she devoted herself to
war wotl; In France, going every morning
to the hospitals as a nurses' aid, and doing
tbo varied tasks which have fallen to the
French women during the war.
Ten months ago, Mie came to America,
having an exchange scholarship at the Uni
versity of Cincinnati, Ohio. She knew little
English then, but she has iiukkly picked It
up, so that she now speaks easily, although
with a manner of twisting her words about
a bit, which Is rather chaimlng as alio does
it. Her father Is a professor In the Univer
sity of Bordeaux.
The war work which she was most Inter
ested In w.m packing boxes for tho French
prisoners, who wero but scantily fed and
eioihe'd hy their German captors. She sent
boxes every two weeks to fifteen soldiers,
many of whom n.ild afterwards that they
feared they might have starved had It not
been for the aid given them by thu French
women. Tho poisonal touch of receiving
gifts nlso meant much to them In the long,
die-ary months of their Impilsonment.

War Camp Community Board
Suggests Demobilization on
Don't tako down your service flags yet,
nnd don't keep them up until they gradually
disappear, weather beaten, ta'tered nnd un
noticed. This Is tho plea of the War Camp
Community Se-vlce, which does not believe
that these emblems of nil our hopes and
fears during our nineteen trying months of
war should bo laid aside without fitting
Instend, of taking down tho flags ono by
ono as fnst ns tho boys hro mustered out or
the stnrs have turned to gold, the War
(.amp Community Service urges that their
proud possessors should keep them exhibited
until a fixed dato when they can be demobi
lised at a public ceremony.
The service flag hns been tho one central
emblem that has represented the sons, the
brothers, the fathers and the sweethearts of
thoso who havo remained behind. It has
appeared everywhere throughout the country
as n great sign of reverence, an emblem of
prldo and hope. Great mansions and Iso
lated little huts have displayed it alike, and
fine has waved to flag from the humblest
milk wagon or peddler's cart to the most
War Camp Community Servics suggests
the period In which Washington's Birthday
falls ns a fitting occasion for the first cere
mony of t' o "demobilization of the service
ting" F hruary 22 Is n national holiday,
and on Friday the 21st tho schools will no
holding Washington's birthday programs. On
this same day, factories, department stores,
office buildings, banks. Industrial Institu
tions and fraternal orders might well also
havo tho exercises of tho "demobilization of
tho service flag," It Is pointed out. On
Sunday, the 23d, the churches should have
their demobilizations, It Is contended.
Tho service does not put this forth ns a
vacuo suggestion, but has planned a well
defined program for these three davs Serv
ice bars should bo pinned (and later sewed)
across the stnrs which represent the boys
who have come homo. For the flar.s with
stars which have turned to gold a specially
designed permanent service flag, to bo known
ns ."Gold Glory" should be substituted, and
these should bo kept on public exhibition as
long as the mind of man retains the mem
ory of this most Just of wars. The chief
fenturc of the celebrations nt which these
ceremonies take place should be community
The following program could bo arranged,
It Is said, If tbo Maors of cities and Gov
ernors of State s nnd President Wilson him
self, back from planning tl, great penco,
would include In their Washington's Birth
dny proclamations a plea for Its fiitlllmenf
The singing of "America ;" ten minutes of
community singing; ten-minute address by a
civilian; ten-minute response by a service
man; solo; ten more minutes of community
singing; fifteen seconds of silent tribute to
tbo men who have fallen; demobilization of
the service flag stars for those men who
have he-en mustered out; prayer; eommunltv
singing, ending with "Home, Sweet Home,"
and the "Star Spangled Banner."
Only those stars should bo demobilized
which represent cither death or discharge
from the service. In tho former case "Gold
Glories" should bo hung hj a place for per
manent exhibition. TheW demobilization
ceremonies should be repeated several times
during the year. Until our army Is de
mobilized, it Is said, there should be at
intervals of several months 'service ting
demobilization" nt block parties, churches,
ollieo liulldlngs, department stoics, fr.iternal
orders, high schools, colleges, small com
munities and nt every place where there

A Roosevelt memorial service was con

Tenth street below Market, hy the Rev. Dr.
Carl E. Orammer. president of the Inter
church Federation, who spoke of Mr. Roose
velt ns an entirely new typo of American
"Wo have had many Inspiring example
of men born In poverty and reared amid
privations who have climbed to the first
seats of power and Influence," he said, "but
Theodore Roosevelt wan our first example of
'n man born In the purple who became a su
preme man of the people. His splendid social
position, wealth, culture and hereditary ad
vantages never separated him from his fel
low men. These distinctions were all dis
solved In the warm currents of his glowing
humanltv. He was first of all and above
everything else a man, and every human be
ing, especially every American, wns to him
Interesting nnd closely related. He was a.
real hero, a modern knight-errant, a paladin
of romance In politics. No one can measure
jet tho full extent of his Influence."
