son, whom he had previously known
in Sall Lake City. This woman, ho
said, told him last. Sunday that she
had met a man who a pea red to bo n
foreigner on Friday night, and who,
if on becoming intoxicated, had made
broken revelations to her. The for
eigner, Dolly .Mason told Hightower,
had shown her a pistol, and when
she pretended lo shrink from it in
fear, he said:
T "You do right to be afraid of 'ha',
gun. lt has taken human life,"
The woman, it is said, then asked
where the man was burled."
"He isn't alone," the foreigner is
said to have replied. "1 have a mun
watching him all the time-a man
?^T who sits and cooks flap-jacks."
At times tho foreigner, Dolly Ma
son told Hightower, expressed -haired

thousands of disabled veterans from
receiving the aid that the govern- j
ment is glad to give, and has rctard
I ed the adjustment of hundreds of
claims of others who were in the
service during the World War.
The clean-up squad is composed of
experts, who have the one purpose
in view of getting in touch with the
veterans and starting ?he machinery ;
to get for them a quick and satisfac
tory.adjustinent of their affairs.
Greenville was selected as the be-j
ginning point of the clean-up squad.
.It. will remain ni1're~ until August 20.
during which time il will get into

Mi ile and Bickens counties.
I From Greenville the squud will
' move on and successively serve the

work will be undertaken in every ?

It. contemplates giving each veteran!
the opportunity to have his diftlcul-l

straightened out right at home in

tance correspondence. At the same

Obviously tho biggest problem in
the campaign is getting in touch
with the veterans, particularly those
who live lu outlying communities.
To overcome this difficulty the gov
ernment, the lied Cross and the Le
gion have issued a joint appeal to
every patriotic organization in the
State to lend aid in seeing that word
of the coming of the squad reaches
the ex-servico men, and in explain
ing lo them just what the coming of
the squad means to them personally.
livery arrangement has been made
to relieve veterans who report to the
squad from every Inconvenience, de
lay and expense. As soon as a dis
abled soldier arrives at headquarters
he will be furnished with transpor
tation back home and monis and
lodging as long as his business lasts.
lt is particularly important that each
ex-service tuan bring his discharge

Oberammergau, August 10. -
Through the death of Father Schroe
der, who had been the priest * in
charge of the Oberainmergau village
church for 3 2 years, and the most
zealous supporter of the traditions
of the Passion Flay, this little village
has-been much saddened Just at the
time when preparations for the pro
duction of the Passion Play in 19 22
are under way.
The first texts of the Passion Play
were prepared by priests and monks
from the littal monastery, and re
peated revisions have been made by
the clergy In the past three hundred
years to adapt the production to the
changed conditions and improve its
literary character. Father .Iosep
Alois Dalsen berger is chiefly respon
sible for the text which has been
used now for many decades, and
which the recently deceased priest,
Father Schroeder, protected against
efforts of many scholars who sought
to interweave it with modern ideas,
which appealed neither to the Ober
ainmergau actors nor to their devot

These' productions are extremely
distasteful to the Oberainmergau
peasants, who have never produced
the Passion Play outside of their own
village, and have never allowed their
productions to be filmed.
William Rutz^thc burgomaster of
Oberanunergau, has just issued a
statement warning the public against
imitations of the play, which the

every ten years for three centuries
in fulfilment of their ancestors' vow
to do so lu expression of their grati

the village from the plague.
