The federal board for vocational

center will be established for the
benefit of disabled soldiers. Climatic
conditions in this part of Arizona
make it a particularly desirable place
for soldiers who have been gassed or
who are suffering with tuberculosis.
The training center will not, however,
limit Its oppprtunities to, suph -man.
but will receive any discharged soldier

National Guard to be Reorganized
Uhder a recent act of congress it is
possible to reorganize the national
guard upon a limited scale. For the
first year Iowa is entitled to 2600 men.
It was hoped that the old Third Iowa,
known as the 168th regiment, could
be organized at once into a national
guard unit, but this cannot be done
under the present plan, without dis
banding the regiment already formed.
The original allotment for iowa is one
regiment of inWantry, one squadron of
cavalry,, one machine gun troop, one
battallion of field artillery, one 'battal
ion of engineers, one field hospital
and one ambulance company."
Adj. Gen. Lasher is quoted as say
ing: "We do'not want the cavalry
and can do without the machine gun
troop. We will ask the war. depart
ment to have these two units assigned
to one of, the other of the states, com
posing district No. 62, and permit Iowa
another regiment of infantry."
The, law. relating to enlistments pro
vides that men who served, as enlist
ed men in the United St^es army, or
in the organized militia of the several
states, since April 6, 1917, and who
have been honorably discharge^* may,
within six Months aftbr JUly 11, 1919,
enlist in the national guard for a' peri
od of one year and may re-enlist for
a like period. If discharged subse
quently to July 11, 1919, they may en
list within six months alfter discharge
All other qualified men shall be enlist
ed for a period of one year or for a
period of. three years. In each organ
ization the proportion of one year en
listments to three year enlistments
shall be that of one to two.
The enlistments in the national
guard for periods of one and three
years carries with it no obligation to
serve in the national guard service.

Thursday Evening of Last Week
btought Chautauqua in Oeniaon to
a Successful Cio*e
Wedneaday Most Important Day of the
Week When Airplane Made Flights
and the Big Band Played
Thursday evening of last week
brought the chalitauqua in Denison to
a close, after a week of music, lec
tures and other interesting entertain'
ment, which has been thoroughly en
joyed byN^his community and sur
rounding vicinities. The citizens of
Denison Will rejoice to know that the
Chautauqua is assured for next year,
the usual guarantee having been fur
nished toy the local business men, and
a large nmber off pledges being signed
by the people of the community be
fore the closing .number* Chautauqua
week is looked forward to .each year
by. Jjip majority of people and house
hold dutiep.-and business r.cares are
laid aside for the week, so. that the
fine talent brought to our^eity might
be enj.oyed to the fullest, extent, and
it would indeed be a keen.disappoint
ment to many of our citizens"if this
attraction should fail to visit Denison.
Wednesday was perhaps the most
important day of the week's program
and the entertainment commenced at
1:30 o'clock when the airplane arrived
here from Woodbine where they ap
peared the preceding day. After
circling over and around the city for
nearly-thirty minutes and thrilling the
spectators with a number of stunts,
such as the tail spin and nose dive,
the hufee bird swooped to the ground
and landed in afield a short distance
east ot town, where it was met and
viewed by a large nupber or people
wboiwere anxious to get a close view
of the strange machine. Arrange
ments, were made for a number of j»s
sengers to make a flight, which took
place immediately at the close of the
afternoon's program. Several Deqteon
pepple' took advantage of the oppor
tunity (presented and for the. consider
ation of Jl.OO per minute took-a. twen
iy.-miniite ride among the clouds and
enjoyed a fine view of ,our beautiful
city from spiite 600 feet in the air.

Banda/Rohia, as. Chautauqua bands are
usually considered the main .attraction
dB the program. 'This ba&d was some
what ^mailer than Kryl^ band* which
appeared here last year, and' while
they gave-a number ot enjoyable: se
lections, their program as a whole
was plot varied enough to come up to
the standard of bands oi other years.
The program consisted mostly of ov
ertures, (some of w^tei were composed
by iLuigl Quaglia, the leader, and a
nunibqr "of popular airs were given as
encores. Perhaps the selection most
enjoyed wath the rendition of "A
Perfect Dayl," which brought forth
great applause and was repeated three
times. Following the afternoon pre
lude Maj. Ray C. Bridgman gave a
lecture on "The Romance of Flying,"
Which was full of interesting informa
tipn gathered first hand by this brave
aviator. Major Bridgman was attend
ing an eastern university when the
war 'broke out, bttt. beln^ so anxious
to have a hand in affairs did not wait
for America to enter, but went) of his

eVance shortly after the outbreak of
the war, at her own expense, and of
fered her services to that country,
where she served tirelessly and faith
fully. Wh'en the United StateB enter
ed in 1917 she was made supervisor
of the American Red Cross in France
and later was given charge of a large
evacuation hospital near Chateau
Thierry, where she remained until the
close of the war. The accounts of
the war from the lips of this heroine,
who was in the midst ot the fighting,
were extremely vivid and her audi
ence wias given a clearer vision and
better understanding of. things as
they realty were than, ever before.
The dosing1 number of the session
was glven on Thursday night when
Ralph Bingham, the great humorist,
was- present. This number had been
looked forward to from the (beginning
with great anticipation and perhaps
our people were lead to expect a little
too much and for that reason Were
somewhat disappointed in the eve
ning'b program. Mr. Bingham is- a de
cidedly clever humorist and his mono
logue as the opening number was full
of clever wit and humor, and kept
his audience in an uproar of laughter.
Those, however, who had heard his
phonograph records of negro and Jew
ish! dial eat were disappointed that
more of such selections were not giv
en, his only dialect reading being a
humorous negro selection, "A Geor
gia Possum Hunt." He favored his
hearers with two violin numbers that
were very good, and in addition to his
humorous vein displayed his talent
along a dramatic line by giving a
serious number entitled "Danny Dee
ver." His wife accompanied him on
the piano1 in a number of selections.
This brought the 1919 Chautauqua

A. Penney, of this city, following a
brief illness -caused by a paralytic
stroke which slie suffered a week prev

the inifirmitiep of age together with
the sudden affliction which came upon
her, proved too much for the frail body
and death fsllowed in a short time.
Helen, daughter of Henry and -Laura
Link, was born in Columbia county,
New York, May 22, 1840. She was of
a large, family, having eight ibrothers
and two sisters. When she waa thir
teen years old the family moved to
iLeon, Wis., at which place she grew
to womanhood. She was converted
at the age of eighteen and united with
the Congregational church, remaining
faithful during all of her life, being a
memben ot the. church i»fBrooklyn, N.
Y., ,o|! which her son, PerclVal, is pas

On March 17,. 1864, while still resid
ing at Leon, Wis., she was'united in
marriage with James Huggett, who
'came to that community from England
a few years before. In 1805 this young
couple moved to Ft. Dodge, Ipwa. They
were therefore pioneer settlers of
Webster county. They preceded the
railroads and all, modern Improve
ments, and ,wi(ie' prairies, beautiful
with wild flowers stretched as far as
the eye could reach. Their,, first home
was huilt'of the native oak and walnut
brought from the timber along tha Des
Moines river. Four children were
born to them, Henry, Nellie, Mark and
Percival. There under pioneer condi
tions they trained their children
in the way of the christian life. Her
bible was her daily companion and her
children were faithfully instructed in
its sublime teachings. She was a
faithful worker in the church and-Sun

active member of the W. C. T. U. and
appreciated the rights of suffrage,
which she enjoyed while residing In
California. During her busy life she
acquired a taste for good literature,
memorizing poetry and psalpis. She
loved birds add flowers. She built a
character of strength and beauty, of
high and noble principles. She did
not allow the toils of life to rob ker of
the ithings that go to make life most
worthwhile. She left to her clUldren
a heritage of value far beyond* that of

spending a few days visiting among
friend# apd relatives. They made the
trip from Seattle by auto, coming by
way of Yellowstone Park and Minne
apolis. Stops were made at different
points along the route, and at Mason
City and Ft. Dodge visits were had
with relatives. This is Mr. Tucker's
first visit to Denison and Crawford
county since leaving thirty years ago,
and naturally he finds many changes.
He is now rated as one of the leading
attorneys of Seattle and enjoys a very
lucrative -business. He is a son of T.
D. Tucker, formerly of Stock-holm
township, and was before leaving Den
ison a student in the law office of R.
ShawVan. Since his admission to the
bar in Seattle his success has -been
phenomenal, and his old time friends
are mutfi pleased at his success and
glad to have him visit this community
at this time. On ithe return -trip Mr.
and Mrs. Tucker will visit relatives
at Omaha fend' will also again visit
Yellowstone 'Park.

The big feature 'of the game was thee
battery work by "J"eff" and "Mutt" thfr
long and short of th« soldiers. In th*.
fifth inning this battery waft Inserted
after the Denison crew had about'Ma',
themselves to death In the toot sun
"Jeff" is about 4 foot 5 inohes tajl, and
"Mutt" was at least 6 foot 10 Inches
tall, and a fine battery they made. In
order to arrange their battery signs
"Jeff" had to stand on the catcher's
mask to talk to "Mutt," and then he
only came up to his elbows. The1 reg*
ulation pitchers distanoe was too far
far the little fellow to throw the ball
so he moved the pitcher's box up at
least ten feet. Denison put over about
ten runs on this famous battery and
when all hands were all in the same
ended in the sixth inning.

The first Sunday fame played in
Denison for a number of years was at
tended by a large and enthusiastic
crowd and they witnessed an exhibi
tion that was more of a farce than a
ball game. The soldiers were not in
a class with the Denison sluggers and
in the (first two Innings the heme gang
put seven runs over the plate and
from then on it was a complete farce.
Johnson and Locke were the Denison
battery and after pitching a oonple ofv
innings Johnson retired in lavor of
Otto in order- to save his -arm. for.:
Thursday's game with Charter Oak. civ
