there is the hill for a state hoard of
health which the council endorsed. A
s'ate board of health is something
that this stale has long been sadly in
need of and which everyone interested
in public health is anxious to see
pass d. Akin to these bills is the
child welfare bill, which asks for an
appropriation to carry on the work
of child saving in the state and which
should receive the serious considera
tion of the legislature. These were
the worth while bills that were en
dorsed by the council, others which
were presented were mcs'ly filed or

Americans pride themselves on their
humanity, and . humaneness: their
promptness in championing the cause
of the oppressed; their dislike of any
thing savoring of Injustice, and yet
there are two million child wage earn
ers in the I'nited Slates, most of them
working eight hours a day, or night
as the case may be. Kvery year three
hundred-thousand babies die, the
large per cent of them from prevent
able diseases. .Millions of dollars are
spent every year and thousands of
txperts hired to safeguard the health
of cattle, s'leep. Iiojfs and horses while
the offori that men put forth in safe
guarding the lives of children is al
most nil.
If it should happen that in all the
world childbirth would cease, not an
other baby ia any home in the wor!d.
How many years would men work for
anything? How long would the insti
tutions of learning be of any interest'.'
How long would there I an effort
made by man to accumulate wealth'.'
Hew long would it he before all in
dustries would cease? It doesn't lake
a brilliant mind to answer these ques
tions. Why then do men and women
neglect the thing of most importance
to the world, the child. Here and
there someone is blessed with enough
vision to see that now is the time for
efforts for child welfare, and a few
organizations are giving time and
study to its need.. Kfforts are being
made in some instances to have school
children learn some of the rules of
health. Since the experience of the
draft boards, who found every fourth
man. young and in his prime, was
physically unfit to bear arms for his
country, there has befn an awakeninsr
in high places. Will Americans still
close their eye to the child's Import

A Simple Evening

When peace suddenly
came the 'type of dress
that was most affected
was the evening gown. We
had made up our minds
to neutral col us and sim
ple, unostentatious styles
and effects, but, with
hearts made brimful of
gladness, we threw off
(this cloak of' sympathy
and sorrow to show gay,
lightheurtod frocks. Sumu
tuousrfess and richness,
too, was made a feature,
of them, for now the for
mal occasions once more
would demand proper ac
knowledgment. JFhe infor
mality of all social affairs
brought about, by war
conditions had officially
been put to an end. As
a matter of fact, however,
women's ytardrohes can
not be made over in a
day. nor their minds
changed In a minute, so
that it was not until the
holidays that th? festive
anti-war costuming- was
seen to any great extent.
Since then women seem
not able to conceive of
enough occasions to wear
this inspiring typo of
frock. For daytime and
street they must still cling
to the conservative colors
and styles, but til the eve
ning theie is no limit, to
the elegance of th$ gowns
achieved both in toiitrast
and delightful harmony
of colors and fabrics and
distinctive maii'iuil-ilion
of them. The; slender ef
fect at the ankles Is
achieved in various wins
of draping the skirt,
which oftentimes will be
draped up and puffed
saucily on ore hip. Drip
ery. however, is not easy
for the amale ir, and the
clever on will avoid 't if
poss hie. When such an
attractive design rs ihe
ruie offered to day is ob
served to be remiss of it,
no amateur who desires a ;
pretty evening frock need
mart and
' '
hesitate.
The skirt is a plain str.nght model
with one or two seams, .-lependi ng on
the width of the material. The scam
is best at the back. As with most of
the narrow skirts of the day, a dis
tance of seven or eight inches is left
open from the bottom up, and the
back seam, to permit of easier move
ment. And for evening frocks it is
pretty to see a wide three or four-inch
lap underneath. A ipetal brocade sat
in soiree is an excellent fabric for this
plain skirt, (is It incorporates a desir-
able quality of rieffiiess. Orchid or
apple green are favored colors, and
the choice should be matched up in
plain satin soiree for a little apron
tunic, which is all in one piece. It isi

also as a distinguished Ben Ilur read

Mrs. Angle before know what that

Jimmie to wash his ears! The relief
and gratitude of knowing that Mar
garet' is going to "sit up and stand up
straight'' and "eat slowly" without be
ing reminded. Mother will surely lose
her wrinkles. And the half hour of
exercise in the fresh air may take
the form of splitting kindling or
cleaning the porches.
Why not change the age limit from
six to sixty instead of from six to six
teen? A little pit. in the fresh air
would improve all of us both mentally
and physically. Couldn't we be honor

work we have neglected our personal
appearance and daily exercises for
grace and health.
When Johnnie comes marching

Governor and
Everything combined to make the
reception at t lie executive mansion
on Tuesday evening one of the notable
j successes in the brilliant social annals
ot tne capital city, n was tne first
function of a general nature in the
present administration, and A'rs. Lar
razolo proved her mettle as a hostess
and as the first lady of the common
wealth. The fact that the legislature
Is in session, that the council andex-
I eeutive board of the New Moxico fed
eration of women's clubs held their
; convention the same day, and that
returning war heroes who had just
arrived from overseas and many oth-
I ers in uniform were present, all add
ed to the historic significance of the
occasion and made it the most Im
portant governor's reception given for
many years, or perhaps, at any time.
The executive massion. of course,
was aglow with lights from one end
to the other from the basement to
me iiagsiuu. jt was raii.aui. wmi
j fragrant blossoms anjl was thronged
all evening, not only with officials,
: legislators, warriors, but also with
! artists, writers, welfare workers, lead
ers in many activities of the state.
The color scheme of the decorations
was pink and white which, against
the greens of foliage, emphasized the
delicate artistic touches of arrange
ment and the perfect appointments of
I the dining room. Ice cream and coke
were in harmony with tho color
scheme. Snap dragon and other blos
soms were in evidence on every side.
While there was a constant tendency
of political leaders and thoss inter
ested in legislation to drift to the
smoking room of Gov. O. A. Larrazolo,
where cigars and cigarettes were pro
vided there was no dearth of gallants
to mingle with the beautifully gowned
matrons and girls who had taken pos
session of the executive mansion for
the evening.
In the receiving line, besides Gov
ernor and Mrs. Larrazolo, were Lieu
tenant Governor Benjamin F. Pankey
and his daughter. Mrs. Koblnson, Mrs.
Pankey having been called to Kansas
City by the serious illness of a daugh
ter; Speaker and Mrs. A. A. Sedillo,
Attorney General and .Mrs. . Askren,
and two veterans of the great war,
the first wounded Spanish Americans
to return from the French battlefield;
Jose Maria A'igil of Arroyo Hondo,
Taos county, who was wounded in the
battle of the Argonne, and Canuto
Trujillo, who was wounded in the
battle of St. Mihiel. Adjutant Gen
eral James Baca, and Colonel Boy
Flamni of the governor' stnff attend
ed in the reception room, and Colonel
Jose D. Sena presenting the more
than three hundred guests. Scout Of
ficer Hanlon Da vies, son of the may
or of Santa Fe, received tho guests at
tho main entrance. Crespin's string
orchestra played many a delightful
strain, including some of the fine old
Spanish melodies.
The ladles presiding in the dining
room were: Mrs. B. P. Barnes of
Albuquerque; Mrs. Hallett Raynolds
of Las Vegas, and Mrs. Frank W.
Clancy and Mrs. Frank W. Parker of
Santa Fe. The young ladies assisting
in the dining room, a bevy of attrac

And two huge wall cases hewei from

They flow through low doors in walls

In a low and narrow vista of door

Through the whole past of the Palace
to the shadowy doors before them.
They lie on white wooden shelves and

Skeleton fragments of the days when I
the caves of Tyu onyi were hand

Bone awls for ghostly garments, bone
flutes for ghostly music,
Stone arrow heads, spear heads and
cherts for shadowy hunting and
killings.
There are deep shadows on rank on
rank of stone axe heads and ham
mers, .
Line on line of the story of tuii felling

blue corn.
And the crude stone quern still folds
...dull shadows of the rhythm of
the rubbing that caressed it,
Where they bent brown breasts to it
that swelled as they sang to it.
There are round shadows of smooth
black stones one could hide in
her palm as she polished pottery.
There are shadows in the big flat
bowls of gray and white and
brown and russet,
Where the life of a tribe that was,
has slowly burned through, the clay.
There are howls whose circle is broken
like the circle of feasters that
dipped from them.
There are patterned shards like frag

piece by piece.

and hand-carved stoiy?s for their

Shadows of the craft of old men who
fashioned and fitted and flew

There are brown and while turkey

Shadows of the dancers' plumes that

And the hard brown rocks of the val
ley when, life was vivid and good
to them,
Till the last lone fire at the foot of
the cliff died out on a dead black
winter night, '
And the last lost wailing echo of liv
ing sang to it.
And to life that writes shadowy
. symbols, broken pictures, dyiur
men and gospels misspelled,
In Tyu'onyi even as Jerusalem.

ANOTHER ART CENTER.
Santa Fe has another show place
for visitors. On Saturday afternoon
there was opened with a tea and re
ception by Mrs. Alice Corbin Hender
son and Mrs. Murjorie Smith on East
Palace avenue, an exhibit room for
works of art and a tea room that are
a joy to Santa Feans. Located in one
of the historic adobe houses, just ad
joining the court house, the interior
and its furnishings speak of another
age, and yet are as cozy and colorful
as one could wish. Primitive fire
places with low seats whose invitation
to be comfortable cannot be resisted.
Antique balustrades, wood carving,
deep window-seats, small tables with
four or six chairs around them placed
throughout the tea room, rare etch
ings and wonderfully colored sketch
es, paintings by great artists, pastels,
water color, oils and a hearty welcome
make- an irresistible combination.
Add to this the fact that the place
is the haunt of artists, writers, of men
and women prominent in various
phases of life, distinguished visitors
and the prediction is justified that
the place will soon be famous
throughout the southwest for its pic
turesque Bohemian atmosphere and
for pleasant gatherings that Will be
long remembered.
For the C'hiliircii.
Too much care cannot be exercised
in selecting a cough medicine for
children. It should be pleasant to
take, contain no harmful drug and
most effectual in curing their coughs'
and colds. Long experience has
shown that Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy meets these conditions. It is
a favorite with many mothers. '
