I. Iowa City, Iowa.—Several hundred Mea and women, graduates and for mer students of the University of Iowa, are devoting their efforts to the furtherance of a project which accord ing to President Walter A. Jessup, Iwiir "transform the University." This Ito the raising of a fund of $1,000,000 between November 22 and November 20, to erect at the University a buUd ling in memory of the sons and daugh Iters of that institution who served in the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and the World War. Lstudents' The building is to take the form of Union—a social center for students and graduates of both sexes and for the faculty. It will contain reading rooms, game rooms, large and j! email assembly rooms, dining balls, I headquarters for the literary societies, £. offices for the religious organizations forking among the students, quarters devoted especially to the women stu dents, and probably a theatre for the I dramatic society. It will be' a kind of I Buper-clubhouse—a real home for stu dents, graduates, faculty and official jrialtors to the University of Iowa. |, On the walls of this building in an appropriate place will be memorial tablets to the men and women who died for America. The records of those others who served in the three wars, whether in the military branch es of the government, in pbilanthrop 1c and relief work, or in civilian war work here at home, will be preserved in the Union. Moreover, its memorial character will be intensified by its de votion to the teaching of the highest j. Ideals of true Americanism. It is possible that a chair of Americaniza tion may be established by the Iowa Memorial Union, which is responsible y'v 4 for this campaign. In any case, it has been decided to make the Union build ing a focal point for the perpetuation M, of the American spirit so loyally dis played by those in whose honor the $£ building is to be erected. The State of Iowa has been organ ised for this campaign by Congress Districts. In charge of each as Dis yfS? triot Chairman is a well-known grad sE oat? of the University, in each county In $is district he has a body of men fjjK and women workers who will reach I' personally the grauates and former students of the Institution and prom nien and women who are espe- J* clally interested in the well-being of the State University. f" This campaign is not confined/ to f' Iowa. In more than forty cities scat tered over the country, campaign committees are being organized now |to reach the graduates and former students of the University who live rThe those communities. service flag of the State Uni •eraity contained more than 3,000 ptart. More than 2,000 graduates, former students and members of the' faculty actually saw service abroad, mail fully 1,000 of that number were commissioned officers. There were Hit members of the unit of the Stu dents' Army Training Corps at the University. On the University service Mffiag there were 43 gold stars, while 32 ^members of the S. A. T. C. unit here tidied. Many medals were won by Iowa yfmen for heroism and the University /rfof Paris has recently given a beautl r^ful bronze medal to the University pjsof Iowa as a souvenir of the distin ^/iguished "services rendered by its .^masters and its pupils not only upon p}the field of battle but also in the still- tiness of the study room and the labora- ^vtory," A large majority of the mem ^bers of the faculty who did not serve abroad were members of civilian war boards or commissions of various chaitocters. It, was this magnificent war record which induced President Jessup and *one of the members of the faculty and graduates to take up the project for a soldiers' memorial, not alone to those who served in the World War, but to those who fought for America In other conflicts. "No monument can really be worthy. of such a record," said he in announc ing the undertaking. "But as I have thought' the matter over, the image of what seems to me the most fitting memorial has gradually taken shape before my eyes, until now I believe In Its reality. The project is huge, but who would wish it to be dimlnu-' tive? Let me state it. As a monu ment to the student soldiers of Old' Gold, to thosfe of the past as well aa those of the present, my mind's eye perceives a magnificent memorial hall,: a Students' Union, which shall endure through the years as a token ttf our love and esteem. P1"Do V, I you begin to catch the vision? wish I could make it clear. This IS to be the hearthstone of the whole University. As Old Capitol is the eenter of our official life, so this will be the focus of our social life. Sadly do we need such a gathering place now. Its completion will transform the Unuiversity. Our sons and daugh ters require it "Men and women of Iowa, the line jiiir^TTY.- irj. .rn7lWP» spirit of the noble youths who have left our halls calls down to us. These olean-limbed boys of our own genera tion, their devotion, their sacrifice, along "with, the devotion and sacrifice of those earlier souls, challenge us to some worthy deed in the name of the University.' A committee was appointed' at the following annual meting of the alumni to have general charge of the organ ization of a campaign to carry out the idea thus stated by President Jessup. This committee consists of Fred1 W. Sargent of Des Moines, president of the University of Iowa Association chairman W. H. Bremner of Min neapolis, Rush C. Butler of Chioago, Charles M. Dutcher of Iowa City, W. O. Finkbine of Des Moines, J. M. Grimm of Cedar Rapids, Carl Kuehnle of Denlson, Joe R. Lane of Davenport, and James B. Weaver of Des Moines. D. D. Murphy, President of the State Board of Education and Mrs. J. L. Scheuerman of- Des Moines in addi tion to the committee make up the list of trustees of the Iowa Memorial Union, a corporation formed to carry on the campaign for $1,000,000. As soon as the plans for the Me morial Union campaign were an nounced, strong sympathy and sup port were manifested by alumni. Gov ernor Frank O. Lowden of, Illinois, Who is one of the most prominent graduates of the University, wrote to Mr. Sargent that he heartily approved the undertaking, and would do all be could to co-operate in making it a sue cess. "It seems to me particularly fitting," he wrote, "that the building should be of such a nature that while al ways preserving its character as a: memorial to the gallant sons of Iowa, it should play a practical part ta the scheme of University life. For such a Building I am sure the students, the alumni and the public of the State will be glad to contribute the funds. The sum of 1,000,000 is not a large one to ask for such a splendid pur pose." Dr. M. H. Thielen, of Grundy Cen ter, wrote: There are many loyal eons and daughters of Old Iowa in Grundy county, and they will not be found wanting.' O. D. Longstreth, who has become campaign chairman for Little Rock, Arkansas, wrote: I think the idea a good one. It surely should be practical." The Greater Des Moines Commit tee formally recorded itself in ap proval of the Memorial Union cam paign, declaring it was a project of public benefit and urged its mem bers to support it in whatever way they could. The Commercial Club of Ottumwa through its Board of Direc tors has expressed commendation of the movement. Daily there are received at cam paign headquarters at Old Capitol let ters'from graduates and former stu dents expressing hearty accord with the patriotic purpose of the campaign and offering to help in the work.

Stephens of Benson, Ne braska, who is, more than 80 years old, knitted for the Red Cross Wristlets 13 pairs Hospital socks 2 pairs Mufflers 3 Sweaters 23 She also bought Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps. The University of Iowa, which is compiling a war record of its students, faculty and graduates, asked Mrs. Ste phens, who is one of the two surviv ing members of the class of 1858, what she had done. The foregoing was her answer. Because of her in tense patriotism, Mrs. Stephens is among those most keenly Interested in the campaign of the Iowa Memorial Union to raise 1,000,000 by Novem ber 29 to erect on the State Univer sity campus a memorial building in honor of the sons and daughters of the University who served in Amer ica's wars. A war worker herself, she believes there should be a fitting me morial to those who gave themselves to their coutttry's cause. In spite of her advanced years, Mrs. Stephens seldoms misses attending the commencement exercises of the University. In 1918 she won a silver loving cup because her class .showed the highest percentage of attendance of living members. Her presence at the commencement scored 50 per cent for her class.

H^ I iu l!«|l A Soul Above Potatoes" By PAUL HAMILTON (Copyright, 1»1S. by tk« W*»t«ra N»w» pap«r Union.) "You'll stay, in Clifton* won't: you, Harney?" Mrs. Ross looked all motherly anx iety as she addressed her son. With them on the garden seat was Harney's sweetheart, Alma Reeves, whose bright, pretty face reflected the solici tude of the older woman. The son and lover affected quite a lordly air. A- week previous his uncle, Mark Leaton, dying, had bequeathed him a neat sum la money and a grocery store he owned In the village. "Tell you," pronounced the young man, almost grandly, "I've got a soul above potatoes." "But, Harney, dear," Intervened Alma, "you know how pleased you were at first with the idea of being your' own master and running a business for yourself." "That's all right," acknowledged this ambitious favorite of fortune, "but I've met my old chum since then. You know Ned Dallas came down to see me when he learned of my big lack. Well, he's a clerk in a broker's office and. he says that with his experience of tfce money market, if I will supply the capital, he will go into partnership with me and will make a regular Na poleon of finance of me." Before leaving Harney made an ar rangement with Warren Doane, an old clerk In a local store, to place hlm ln charge of the one he had inherited on a basi8 0f equ&l division of profits. The day aftfer Harney's departure Mr. Doane called at the Ross home. "I am going to surprise Harney," he told Mrs. Ross, who was an old friend. "He has agreed to let me have full swing with advertising and specialty wrinkles and I am going to build Up a grand trade. Alma, I shall need some one to take charge of the cashier's desk. Can I count on you?" and Alma acquiesced In the arrangement and the enterprise started out under most promising auspices. The young adventurer across the shoals of finance wrote almost doily the first month of his absence. He was all anticipation, ambition, enthu slasm. Then he became less effusive in his epistles and during the second month of his absence only two brief letters reached home. "We must not expect too much at tention from the poor boy. Immersed as he la in business cares," Mrs. Ross told* Alma, who, in her faith and in nocence, pictured "the poor boy" han dling .the monetary destinies of na tions. The merest "All well—love to all," about comprised, the substance of subsequent letters from Harney. Mean while, Alma and Mr. Doane begrudged DO thought or care that would tend to place the despised grocery business upon a firm and growing basis and keep It there. The idea that she was doing something that benefitted the business interests of her lover kept Alma animated and glad. How she worked, and planned, and hoped She had, however, received an Inkling from something she overheard between two local business men that Harney "was cutting a wide swath in the clty,r making daring speculative investments and going beyond his depth, It was one Saturday night and Mr. Doane had closed the store an hour earlier than usual on account of a rain storm, and Alma had decided to remain for an hour or so and balance the books and was engrossed at her task when the knob of the store door, rattled, and then there was a quick, sharp tapping on its glass paneL Alma could make out the visitor against the glare of the street lamp. It was Har ney Ross and she uttered a cry of Joy as, unlocking the door, she led him into shelter and clung to his arm, ut tering fervent words of welcome. Then as he came within the radius of the desk lamp her heart.smote her. "I've tramped it from the trolley, Alma/' he said. "I ran out of money and Tin about famished. You've got a neat and inviting layout here," and he went over to a counter which held a tempting array of cheeses, dried beef, boiled ham and some pickle rel ishes, on the way drawing a liberal handful from the cracker box, and set about eating with an enjoyment that both gratified and saddened Alma, for this returning lover of hers dreadfully suggested the penitent prodigal. -This is sure a land of plenty," said Harney, with a sigh of satisfaction is he completed a lunch sufficient for two men. "Alma, I've come back with nothing but a hard, costly lesson learned. Those city sharks took my money away from me so easy, I won-? der how they did it I'm through as a financial Napoleon. I'm glad to creep home, humble and glad to come back to the store, and mother—and you," "And, oh! Harney," Jubilated Alma, "such a business the'store has done! You poor boy, Indeed! How welcome you are "I had a soul abave potatoes, you know?'' observed Harney with mourn- ful retrospection. "Well, if the flat upstairs Is still vacant—" "Yes, it is, Harney," nodded Alma. "Then it's a quiet wedding as soon as you can get ready. And, after what I've gone through, it will be paradise to settle down in the cozy, modest little home. "Even if it Is right over the pota toes laughed Alma, bestowing a kiss that to Harney Ross was more pre dons than all the money be had lost. •WL ngfc:' THE DENISON REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 26,1919 S» ARION ITEMS *1* 4* «$) A quiet wedding in which Arion peo ple will be interested, took place on No veihber 18th at .Ridgefleld Park, ,N.

I had the worst form of indigestion, suffered all the time from gas on my stomach and wus continually belching up undigested food. I had to take my coffee without sugar, as when I drank it with sugar, I would just belch for hours. I would bloat and swell up like I was poisoned and suffered with neuralgic pains of the worst sort, and nothing seemed to help.me only in a temporary way. I just can't tell you how I did suffer for the past four years and up to the time I began taking Tanlac, a few weeks ago. 'When I read the testimonials of some who had been relieved of troubles like mine I just felt like I couldn't make a mistake by taking Tanlac and it has done even more for me than I had expected. I began to ffeel better after taking my first bottle and have just now started on my third and I'm a different man already. I sleep like a log now and eat just any and every thing I want without the slightest dis comfort afterwards. I am giad to en dorse Tanlac because it does the work and I'm telling all my friends just what I'm telling you. I never felt better in my life than I do since taking Tanlac.
