SATURDAY, DECF.MBKR jB. iqiH
It's Birthday of World's First Citizen.
"A prophet ia not without honor, save in his own country and
among his own people "
That was said by a wise man thousands of years ago and it's as
true today as it was then.
But Americans have proven a good many times that they are big
enough to show a man that he is appreciated?before the time has
come to strew his grave with flowers, or before the people qf other
lands have seen his unusual qualities, or even beiore those of a future
generation suddenly discover them.
Woodrow Wilson has fired the hearts of all Europe. His birth
day will be celebrated in a far more conspicuous fashion than Ameri
cans can easily imagine?for the Europeans are great when it conies
to fetes and festive occasions.
We're very much afraid of "slopping over"?we hate to show our
emotions. Europeans aren't ashamed of their feelings?and they'll
give Woodrow Wilson the time of his life?if he'll let them.
n<' w' it- all this is going on, let's show them that America
isn't a bit behind in honoring the man who has borne the brunt of
the battle in this country.
? ' sident V ilson is recognized as the originator of the phrase?
"Let us make the world safe for democracy!" This phrase will go
down in history with similar sayings of great men in grave crises.
?ritiey from today Woodrow Wilson will stand out in j
America even more prominently as a statesman and a world leader
. i-nav. i
If he has made mistakes the world will forgive them. It will |
remember only the big things he has done. Probably no American j
w ill loom larger in European history than he.
Therefore, birthday greetings!
To Woodrow Wilson, President of these United States, 6.2 years!
old today, December 28, tgt8.
What an inspiring career!
I-'rom the "barefoot boy with cheeks of tan" trudging to school j
from the Presbyterian minister's house in Staunton. V a., to?

The Atlanta lawyer of 1883.
The law professor of Princeton of 1805.

And the great lesson that should come home to every one of us,
toda\ IS that down to the last man of us we need to stand true and
square to the high ideals given to us by the man whom we honor in 1
our own land as he is being honored by our friends and allies over,

Even Bill Taft Gets "Good and Mad.
We have been waiting for sixteen years to see big Bill '1 aft get j
"good and mad." j
Bill to date has been our ideal of a fat, forgiving sort of opti-j

} It was Bill who forgave Teddy all the unkind things he said I
did to him. and who even before the reunion allowed no bitter |
Jb d to escape.
But William Howard Taft has reached his limit!

argument is a butcher knife, and whose only platform is aj
^ted cleaver, itvspire in the most mild and mannerly of us the!
gory urge as roils their hairy chests.

The Prettiest GirU of the Lot.
There are many fair girls in our city today
That are charming and pretty I know.
Some came from quite near, ionic from far, tar away.
And others that came here "just so."
They are scattered throughout the departments, you see,
Where their presence lights up every spot,
But the girls of the War Ri*k, just take it from me,
Arc the prettiest girls of the lot.
W here the war hosts hold forth, down at Sixth street and B,
They have blonds of most every type.
And pretty brunettes that are pleasing to see.
With cheeks that arc rosy and ripe.
But if you want beauty untarnished and pure,
Unmarred by blemish or spot,
\ ou'll admit that the girls of the War Risk, l'in sure,
Are the prettiest girls of the lot.
Now there's the Surgeon General, thinks he has the best
And the fairest of all on his force.
And Hoover and Barney Baruch and the rest
Think they all have the choicest, of course.
But you go with me down to one-nineteen D
And vou'lj see all their estimates drop,
W hen the girls of the War Risk turn out .you will see
TheyVe the prettiest girls of the lot.
In the years yet to come, when the people discuss
The things and events that they saw,
'1 hey'll tell how Kaiser Bill started a fuss.
And how Uncle Sam flattened his jaw.
They'll tell of the girls that flocked here in that day,
Of assistance that Uncle Sam got
And the girls of the War Risk, you 11 oft hear them say.
Were the prettiest girls of the lot.

New York. Dec. 27.?Jaded Broad
way habitue*. drifting up through the
Roaring Forties the other night for
their vegperal bite, got a real thrill
When they lolled up to Korty'-ninth
Mreet. Churcl)i(|'f?which adverH.se*
"not a restaurant, hut an institution"
?was dark.
Cap'n Jim t'hurchill more unlike
his debonair self than at any time
since he quit the police department,
opened up a pretentious eat. drink
?nd be merry place and threw away
the key, could be seen anxiously pac
ing his acres of snowy white linen
in darkness.
It was just at the evening song hour
when 240 waiters. iO chefs and an
army of kitchen help went on strike
and walked riyht out on Cap'n Jim.
leaving him, figuratively, flat on his
back. Across the street the Pekin
waiters were also going out.
Diners looked Into the darkened
cafe, shuddered and soiiKht some other
lighted palace of I/obsteria where
Waiters were not so scarce. The strike
of waiters has leaped from hotel to
cabaret place. Just when it is believed
to be stamped out it breaks out afresh
in a new place. iXow there is talk
of the hain-and places losing their
waiters by strike.
A few of the exclusive places, like
the Kitz, St. Regis. Majestic and
Plaza. have not been hit by the strike
as yet. but generally the strike has
crippled almost every hotel in town
tempora rily.
The waiters could interest New
Yorkers in iheir strike by denouncing
unanimously the further acceptance
of tips by any members of their Onion.
The tipping system has put the busi
ness of waiting into disrepute, al
though there are hundreds of worthy,
hard working men who are waiters.
Primarily the public is to blame, of
course, but now the public looks upon
the average waiter as an ogre ready
to jump on him at every turn and
gouge a deep hole In his purse.
About midnight, the other night, a
sailor lad. making heavy weather
lurched out of a train and into an
elevator at the 181st street subway
station, in* head hung limply down
until the elevator started up, when
he heaved a deep sitfh and remarked
,s a tough war, lennne tell you."
A tier which he lapsed once more into
a brooding silence.
At Columbus Circle they are trying
to revive Gilbert and 8ullivan opera
to keep some singers fortified against
* < o|d winter 'The Mikado."
The Pirates of Penzance" and "Pin
afore" always go big. but the re?
vivahsts put on "Gondolier" one week
and almost starved It ran for al
most ?*) nights at the Savoy in Lon
don. but on this side of the pond
it is a flat failure. Despite this
the gondolese skit, in my opinion
has some of the best of the Gil
bertian satire and the Sullivan m jsic.
An army officer sent a hotel mes
senger to ;t drug store for some Ro
chelle salts. The boy misunderstood
the directions and asked for roach
salts. A packaqe was handed to him
which bore no warning to testify to
the deadlines* ,f tak,-n internals.
? nd the armv officer swallowed a
dose. lie died a few hour.s later
And nobody eon Id in- held to blame
The case stood out because the army
officer was prominent, but the hos
pital records show that every dav
there is a patient or two victims of
th.- mistakes of messengers they send
to drug stores after different rem
edies.
With the return of peace and more
space for varied news, the ship new*
reporters are reveling m old-time
glory. One reads in a day of a hoo
doo ship, of m ghest in a cabin, of
s band of pirates ofp Sandy Hook
and of a vagrant submarine hunting
ahout for some ship to which it can
surrender. It is all mighty fine read
ing. too.

FHELAN BILL
ON CALENDAR
Measure Amending Federal
Reserve Reported Favor
ably By Committee.
The Phelan bill, carrying a aeries of
Important amendments to the Federal
reserve act, ??? favorably reported
by the Houae Banking and Currency
Committee yesterday. The bill goes on
the House calendar, and will be called
up after the holidays.
The first amendment provides that
: the net earnings of each Federal Re
aerve Bank above dividend require
ments shall accumulate in the surplus
i fund until it reaches 100 per cent of
I the subscribed capital. The advantage
of this will be to give the banks great
er capital and surplus resources.
! which will be of great benefit Jn ex
j tending the foreign commerce of the
country.
The ?econd amendment, will permit
reserve hanks to rediscount to a
greater extent for member banks on
liberty bond* security. Thia will en
able reserve banks to take care of
j memtier banks just an the latter ac
commodate borrowers.
flection 4 would allow national banks
in cities of lOfe'tfiO population having
capital and surplus of fl.W'.UUO or more
*o establish branches within the city
limits.
Another aimndm^nt would remove
the present restriction 'jpon th* five
appointed member? of the Federal Re
serve Board making them ineligible
for any position in a member bank for
two years after they leave the board.
