GRASS ROOTS TO EAT
Armenian Refugees at Point of
Starvation Will You Help?'1?
Hunger and destitution have
reached such a point among the
Armenian refugees in the near
East that the principal, diet of
many is a kind of -broth made
from grass roots gathered in the
fields by women, who often fall
exhausted while gathering this
meager ration. The little children
cannot cut such food and they are
dying in great numbers according
to advices received here trom
Howard Heinz. American Fo6d
Commissioner for the near East,
who is now in Constantinople.
"Unquestionably these people
will have to be fed for another
year," writes Mr. Heinz. Many of
them are refugees from Turkey,
and these all desire to get back to
their homes and till the lands they
left, but when they get back I am
sure they will find very little. The
Turks-have despoiled everything
and there will be nothing with
which people may either live on
or make a living.
Funds are being
America now to alleviate this dis
tress, which in some areas has
reached a stage that the frantic
people are resorting to Cannibal
ism in an effort to survive.
Commencement Week is Climax of
Another Successful Term in
Old P. H. S.
The public school closed Thurs
day, May 29. In spite, of the
"flu," the required amount of
ground was covered in practically
every branch. .This is due partly
to the co-operation of the parents
xiiid pupils in doing home work
during the time that the. school
was closed and partly to the
lengthening of the school day.
Commencement exercises went
off especially well this year, begin
ning with Rev. Kleuplels Bac
calaureate sermon and ending
with Prof. Kohl's commencement
Rev. Kleupfel took Ifor the sub
ject of his discourse the class
motto, "Be," interpreting the
phrase "Be Godly," as including
everything necessary to a person
who would be successful, useful
and happy. The responsive read
ing was conducted by the Rev.
Tuesday- evening the members
of the Senior class fairly outdone
themselves when they gavljfy the
play, "Standing By." Everyone
seemed equal to the part assigned
to them, from the heroine and vil
lian down to the colored private,
Henry, with his handy rzor.
Between acts musictu numbers
were given by the colored trio,
Walter Thornton, Leo Dibling and

was given by Mary Williams.

The spirit that filled the hearts
of every ono who took part in tho
Memorial Day exercises (whether
they were in line or among tho on
lookers) was of a nature that can
not be expressed in writing.
"It was a grand day, full of sun
shine, and the people of Perrys
burg, in honor of those who laid
down their lives that we might
enjoy freedom, were only too
eager to pay their respects by tak
ing part in the exercises arranged
for the occasion.
The parade formed at tho
Library corner, headed by Mar
shal of the Day Col. E. L. Kings

Glory waving in the breeze, fol
lowed by the baud, came next. In
the following order the remainder
of the parade consisted of the
Mayor and Council, G. A. R.,
Soldiers of the World War, War
Mothers, Red Cross, Bugle Corps,
Liberty Loan Workers, W. O. W.,
I. O. O. F. and School Children.
The procession marched to Ft.
Meigs cemetery where the follow
ing program took place :
Music by the band.
Invocation by Rev. W. H. Spy
Address by Jonathan E. Ladd.
Small flags marked the graves
of the heroes of previous wars and
on these a bouquet of tho season's
flowers were placed in memory of
the great sacrifice made by those
who sleep there.
At. Ft. Meigs a bouquet was
placed on the monument and also
one on the flag pole. Another was
tenderly laid on the patch of
green that marks tho ono large
grave of the famous "Kentucky

and patriotic citizens of our town
paid their respects to our "Soldier
Dead" on Memorial Day tells the

Perhaps you have never thought of

We heard many criticisms and
dissatisfied remarks on Decoration
Day in regard to tho appearance
of the Ft. Meigs cemetery. It
has been many years (if ever)
since the cemetery grounds have
been allowed to grow up into a
spectacular "hay field." Proud
Perrysburg must droop her head
in shame to have allowed her
burying ground to becomo so
neglected. Our deceased ones
who lie there are deserving of
more respect than has been por
trayed by the manner in which
the grounds have been cared for
this summer. "
We fear tho policy of the pres
ent board lias been too economical
and narrow to meet the demands
of Qur citizens, for a fine and well
kept burying ground. Perrysburg
expects much in this direction and
is wining to pay ior u, uvea u it
would be, necessary to issue bonds
for tlie purpose. The, Journal

Saturday morning the entire
building would have bee,n a com

moments when a pail of gasoline
that was being drawn from a large
truck caught fire. t
Fire extinguishers were brought
into play and heroic work of get
ting the flaming gas out of the
building where it could do no
damage was no small task. In a
few moments the blaze was "under
control, thus saving the entire
building from destruction.
