be held on Monday evening, April 10,
at Masonic hall, 588 Rondo street,
is creating a great deal of interest.

when they are gone. Several
from Duluth have sent in for
reservations. This is to be a confer
ence dinner of Twin City people. The
tickets are only 75 cents and may be
purchased of Mrs. Birdie High, 674
St. Anthony, who has them for sale.

Speaks for Crippled Children.
Unable to see the scores of radiant
little faces that surrounded her, un
able to hear the childish voices that
welcomed her with a shrill cheer, un
able to speak clearly enough for juve
nile ears to understand her, Helen
Keller, America's blind "miracle girl,"
once also a deaf mute, standing in
auditorium at the Michael Dow
ling School for Crippled Children in
Minneapolis Wednesday, delivered a
ten-minute message of cheer to the
sixty crippled children who are being
taught to live and laugh as eagerly
as normal children.
Miss Keller's face was radiant as
it turned to the half-circle of chairs
where the crippled children sat.
"We know, don't we," she said,
"that handicaps can be surmounted
if one only tries hard enough?" And
her gesture indicated that she re
garded the lessons of the children as
important as she did her own life
long struggle against great odds.
Under the efforts of Mrs. Susie
Bogie and Mr. W. C. Jeffrey the Sun
