the memory of forwier President Roose

court, said:
.."The court has learned with the
deepest regret of the death of Col
onel Roosevelt. Just as this period
of our history, owing to the many coni
?dictated and unsettled questions grow
Out of the war in Europe, his
death Is an irreparable loss to the na
rr* tion and the world. l.<ong before the
declaration of war against Germany,
and at a time when we were in doubt
H3 ' to what the attitude of our gov
ernment would ultimately be, he sound
ed the alarm in his characteristic and
courageous manner, doing more than
any one to arouse the spirit of Amer
ilftanism which grew until it knew no
bounds.
"The great military achievements of
pur boys 'over there' were inspired by
the Rooseveltlan Hpirit. In his death
the world has lost one of Its greatest
( statesmen, the State and community
ar^ invaluable citizen, and his family
a model husband and father. As a
mark of respect to the memory of this
t distinguished statesman and friend of
g.. humanity the court will now adjourn."

COMMUNITY KITCHEN
IDEA MAY BE ADOPTED
Mrs. Melville C. I'nttcraon, Jast llr
tlirnrd from Trip of Investiga
tion, to Speak To-Day.
Mrs. Melville C. Patterson will speak
to the women of the city in Room
n.10 at the Jefferson Hotel at 10 o'clock
this morning under the auspices of
the government home demonstration
headquarters on the advisability of a
community kitchen for Richmond.
While this matter lias befcn discussed
on several occasions nothing definite
had been accomplished until Mrs. Pat
terson was asked to inspect the com
munity kitchens in New York City
anil make a report.
The community kitchen is the most
practical solution to the servant ques
tion which has as yet been devised.
Cooked food, either hot or cold, as de
sired, is sent out to hundreds of fam
ilies living within a certain radius,
thus eliminating the necessity of pre
paring meals.
Miss Maude E. Wallace, emergency
home demonstration agent for Rich
mond, is chairman of the meeting
which wilt be held th!? morning at
the Jefferson.
Women of the city Interested in the
project are asked to attend the meet
ing and hear Mrs. Patterson's report.

Old Director Will Instruct New Man
ill Duties of I'ositioi Office Prac
tically Idle Since Departure of L.
W. Wilson.
The doors of the oflices of the Di
vision of Markets, a. subdivision of the
Department of Agriculture, of which
George W. Koiner is commissioner,
have been reopened, having virtually
been closed since last October.
C. II. Bucher, formerly assistant di
rector during tho tenure of both Di
rector U. C. Moom-iw and Director
Lawrcnco Wilson, has returned to his
ol.l position, among other thincs. to
initiate the new director, who, it is
generally repoited, will be W. S. Camp
ileld, of Harrisonburg.
II. C. Moomaw left the Division of
! Markets to take a similar position with :
? the Federal Division at Washington.
| Me was succeeded by 1j. W. Wilson, of
Staunton, after severaJ weeks during
which CJ. II. Bucher was acting di
rector.
Mr. Wilson later left to join the
staff of the food administration at
Staunton. Again the duties of the
oflice devolved upon Mr. Bucher. Mr.
Wilson having taken advantage of the
six months' leave law to do war work !
Shortly thereafter Mr. Bucher resigned
entirely to go with the food adminis
tration in Staunton.
From that time on the ofTlcc was
only nominally open. The services of
j Mr. Bucher. however, have been re
secured. since he is familiar with the
work of the oflice, and also had market- j
ing experience before coming to the
Division of Markets.
Commissioner Koiner has been out
of the city for two or three days, at
tending a conference in Washington.
It could not be learned definitely yes
! terday if Mr. Cainpfleld had accepted
' the position, but it was reported that
he would do so.

Muslinwear Sales
Are the Woman's
Opportunity!
At no other time in our history have we
held a more successful Muslinwear Sale, nor
one that meant so much in the matter of true
economy to our patrons?the sale itself, we
believe, is best evidence of these two outstand
ing facts. See the crowds in attendance here
daily, and how delighted every one seems with
the excellence of the Muslinwear that make up
the lots, the superb varieties of garments and
trimmings, and then?THE SUPERIOR
VALUES!
We repeat, "it is the woman's opportunity"
to select all the dainty undergarments she is
likely to need for the long season that's just
ahead, and to save money while so doing.
We again urge you to examine the
Tables of "Sample Garments" at
79c, $1.19, $1.59, $1.98,
$2.19, $2.98 and $3.98
There are wonderful values in even finer
garments than these; for example, the beauti
ful lacey Gowns, Skirts, etc., at $4.50 to $5.98,
but it is in the lots noted here, including gar
ments for general wear, we direct most atten
tion ; they are the real bargains of the sale and
there are more of them.
