James S. Sherman, Republican
. Nominee for Vice President,
Here Oct. 2.
FOR PARTY'S DAY AT EXPO.
Another Leading Orator for the Same
Evening Assures Success of
(By Associated Press.)
Chicago, Sept. 19. Republican head
quarters announced today that James
Sherman, after opening the western
campaign with a speech in Chicago
under the auspices of the Hamilton
clubJSept. 28, would take a three-day
trip through Illinois on a special train,
making 10-minute speeches from the
car platform at points net scheduled
for set addresses, and would complete
the trip by addressing an audience at
the Rock Island exposition the after
noon of Oct. 2.
Hon. James S. Sherman of New
York, candidate for vice president of
the United States on the . republican
ticket and dubbed by his admirers
;Sunny' Jim," will be the big card for
republican day in connection with the
Rock Island exposition. He will speak
at the ball park in the afternoon of
Oct. 2, and another orator of national
reputation will be secured for the
same evening, negotiations being now
pending with the national speakers'
. Mr. Sherman was secured by J. V.
barker and O. R. Nourse of the exposi-
Stion directory after three days of
trenuous work in the republican na
ional headquarters, Chicago. Their
ask was not finished till today after
tWy had returned home, a message
this morning bringing news , of the
success of their efforts. Mr. Sherman
was landed through Uuited States Sen
ator Dickson, chairman of the national
speakers bureau of the republican na
IliKKrnt Cnril Hooked Anywhere.
It also developed today that Bryan,
Stevenson and ex-Governor John Lind,
the announcement of whose engage
ment by the democratic exposition
committee appeared in last night's Ar
gus, and all of whom will be here for
democratic day, Sept. 29, form the big
gest card booked by the democratic
speakers' bureau, either state or na
tional, for any one town on any one
day during the campaign. Usually it
is considered enough to give a city any
one of. the three at some time during
the campaign, but to get them all
three in one day is an honor indeed.
It is needless to speak of Bryan and
Stevenson. Ex-Governor Lind is one
of the strongest speakers on the stump
for the democratic cause this year, and
a treat is assured all who hear him.
He and former Vice President Steven
son speak in the afternoon, while Mr.
Bryan will be heard in the evening.
All the political meetings in the ball
park will close in time for the exposi
' tion events of the respective days.
Word came today that the C. V.
'Parker shows which will be here dur
ing the exposition is finishing today
at Council Bluffs the most successful
engagement of the season. They will
be at Cedar Rapids next week, jupip

Some misunderstanding appears to
have arisen over the admission to the
exposition grounds, and to set tlie mat
ter straight the officers desire to; havo
it stated that the price of admission
i will be 25 cents for adults and 15 cents
for children at any and all times, and
there will be no charge for the free
performances on the stage in front of
ihe grand stand, or the horse exhibit
and automobile and fire department
contests. No admission will be charg
ed to hear th.e speakers on democratic
and republican. days. The 25 cents
admits to the 10 magnificent free
shows, in addition to the illumination,
fireworks, and the horse and auto ex
hibits. nnlc Arc HIk

"As a Christian institution in our

spiritually and morally. It has always
identified itself with the forces of

know how to control themselves. This
is something which is drilled into stu

Everything is done in a thorough
manner; there is no slipping nor
shirking. A certain moral fearless

Christian institutions,' a quality which
is absolutely essential lit order to at

a leading example of this type."
Mr. Oglevee closed his r.ddress with
an admonition to the students not to
neglect the opportunity, but to eagerly

become all the rage and threatens to
resume its former popularity in fas- i
tidious toilettes. It originated in the
cast and has reached as far west as
Chicago. .Some students from New
York imlvorted it to Augustana and
at once the craze was on. -
"Looks dandy!" was the universal
verdict of the coeds and that settled it.
Captain Burke's tonsorial parlors be
came at once a popular resort and the
painful efforts on the part of some of
the "stoodes" to make their hair as
sume the perpendicular position was
little short of amusing. Every day
have they been "sitting" for Burke
. In order not to crush down the ten
der prospective bristles, the devotees
of the new fad have been forced to
walk around bare-headed on the
streets and college grounds. To the
other male students they have been
objects of derision, but the coeds
look upon them with admiration and
regard them as "real heroes."
That's enough - for pompadourites
and they bear the ridicule heaped
upon them with a martyr-like spirit.
"You'll get- in line next," they say
and it really seems as If their predic
tions are coming true for new dis
ciples are being added to the pom
padour club every day.-
