The speakers for the luncheon wpre Mrs. Richards, Otto Stark and William Forsyth. Mr. Stark spoke an "The Importance of Art Education," lie emphasized the need of education to the general public. “I'nless one has the subject of art along with their education, the education is un balanced," says Mr. Stark. Art is one of the principals uof education, even of life, he believes, and urges that more time be spent in the pursuit of art. Mrs. Richards, in her ta'ik to the lovers of art, said "she felt, such a luncheon wa a stepping stone toward the co operation of those interested.” She said "hc hoped for the building up of art through the cooperation of all artists.” William Forsyth spoke on “Local Ap preeiaion of Art,” and the attitude of the public to the artist and the artist to the public. He also ettieized the lack of education along art llnesfi declaring art as taught the child is too cut-and dried, too standardized, that it did not permit inspiration and feeling to be ex pressed in any form of work. He said the teachers of art. When teaching a child, gave him what they had received from their teacher without life or ex pression. ne said the more efficient the teacher, often the more lifeless and ex pressionless the lesson. WATER SYSTEM GETS PRAISES Foresighted Plan. Says Lunch eon Speaker. The water system of IndlanapotU Is a splendid example of broad, foresighted city planning." said Dr T. Victor Keene in an address before the Woman's Rotary Club nt its luncheon in the Oarpool Ho. tel. on the subject of "City Planning.” "George Fuller, the New York engineer, rianned not for a city of twenty thou sand, ns Indianspol's was at that time, but for a city with a population of one million," Dr. Keene said. "The use of the canal as a sediment bain. from which the water empties naturally Into the filter basin and hence by gravity into the pumping station, is an excellent il lustration of the use that miv b made of Datura! landscape features in the in terests of economy. "We have today two natural beauty spots from which to develop a civic cen ter second to none In the country—the magnificent Federal Building and the Riley Memorial Library. Using these two units as the extremes of the group, we have planned a plaza of seven blocks, in the center of which stand the war ffie tnorlal building. On either side will be parkways, which wi!l include University Park with its artistic Bittler fountain, and Library Tark, already one of the city’s beauty spots. The two churches which occupy the block north of Ver mont street will be left standing for at twenty-fire years, but ad other buildings will be leveled to make way for a magnificent civic center of which Indi anapolis should be justly proud."

Sabre had always thought Bright Effle would be wonderful with old Mrs Perch.

Effie was always happy. One evening he asked hep a most ex traordinary question, shot out of him without Intending it, discharged out of his questioning thoughts as by a hid den spring suddenly touched by groping fingers. "Effie. do you love God?” Iler surprise seemed to him to be morn at. the thing he had asked *' an at its mazing unexpectedness and amazing irrelevancy. "Why, of course, do, Mr. Sabre.” “Why do you ?" She said in simple wonderment, ns one asked wh.it hnd the sun to do with light, or whether water was wet, "Why, God is love." He stared at her. V The second Christmas of the war came. The evening before the last day of the old year was to have given Sabre a rare pleasure to which lie had. been Immensely looking forward. He was to have spent it with. Mr. Fargus. The old chess and acrostic evenings hardly ever happened now. It was to have been a real long eve ning; but It rroved not very long.

The doctor had been and was coming again in the morning There was noth ing to be done, he had said; just watch her. Watch her? How long had he been standing at tho foot of the huge bed — the biggest bed he had ever seen—arid what was there to watch? "Sinking," the doctor had said. In process here be fore his eyes, but not to be seen by them, awful and mysterious things. Death with practiced fingers about his awful and mysterious surgery of separating the spirit from the flesh, the soul from the body, the incorruptible from the corrupt ible. But young Perch was dead. Young Perch was killed. It was real. He was here. This war! II He felt very cold. Me moved from the bed and replenished the fire and crouched bosidd It. There was some strange sound in the room. He dozed in a chair. Some strange sound, or had he imagined it? He sat up* tenseliy and listened. It was her breathing, a harsh and labored sound. He stepped quickly to the bed and looked and then ran into the pass agennd called loudly, "Effie! Effie!" Frightening, terrible, agonizing. He was kneeling on one side of the bed, Effie at the other. The extreme moment was come to her that lay between them. She was moaning. He bowed his face Into his hands. The sound of her moan ing was terrible to him. That inhab itant of this her body had done its pre*,- nratlons and now stood at the door n the darkness, very frightened. It wanted to go back. It had been very accus tomed to being here. It could not go back. It did not want to shut the door. The door was shutting. It stood and shrank and whimpered there. Oh. terrible! Beyond endurance, ago nizing. It was old Mrs. Perch that stood there whimpering, shrink,ng. upon the threshold of that huge abyss, wide as space, dark ns night. It was no spirit. It was just that very feeble Mrs. Perch with her fumbling bands nnd her mov ing lips Look here. Young Perch would never allow her even to cross a road without him! How in pity was she to take this frightful step? He twisted up all his emotions Into an appeal of tre niendous intensity. "Young Perch! Come here? Your mother! Young I’ercb, come here!” Telling if, once, to Nona, he said, "I don't know what happened. They talk about self hy pilot Ism. Perhaps it was that. I know I made a most frighthful effort saying ‘Young Perch.’ I had to. I could see her —that poor terrified thing Something had to be done. Some one had to go to her. I, said it like tn a nightmare, bursting to get out of It, 'Young Perch. Come here' Anyway, there it is, Nona I heard them. It was Imagination, of cottrsq. But I heard them." He heard. "Now then.

He stared upon her dead face. Where was gone that mask? Whence had come this glory? That inhabitant of this her body, in act of going had looked back, and its look had done this "Why do you loro God?" he asked. thing. It had closed the door upon a ruined house, and looked, and left a temple. It had departed from beneath n mask, and looked, and that which had been masked now was beautiful. Young Perch!

This odd pact between Jack and Peggy to maiutaln individual free dom after marriage is not working perfectly. Because of Peggy’s ex travagances Jack diplomatically has to work out n budget system. Jack didn't mean to leave me so sub dued tnls morning. I'm never going to let him know how easily he can hurt my feelings. For when he went Into budget making so solemnly it really seemed to me that he isn’t finite satisfied with me as a house keeper. We've been married only six weeks and this day he proposed that we make a schedule for spending our salary. Am Ia pour manager? Does he think Pm a mistake as a business nrtner? So many unexpected worries turn up as soon as you're married! This budget business tumbled from a clear sky. I had run hut of money and it's only Thurs day,-and I had spent every cent Jack gave me last Monday morning. He gives me $lO every week for gro ceries and meat and this morning it was all gone, all gone on account of m? luncheon for the girls. And after I had told .Tack I hadn’t a penny to buy our dinner 1 found that he had only $5.53 and that he Intended it to cover nil h‘ls personal expenses until the first of the month—five days away ! I'd never have known if I hadn't in sisted. For Jack gave up his fiver with the gayest smile. I had to go through his pockets to find out how much ho had left for himself. Only 83 cents! And Jack thought it a wonderful Joke! "Let's make life a great adventure to gether, Pegging!” he said. “Let’s take the good and the bad of it as if we were ex plorers! After my years in the war, darling, nothing at home is hard!

Ex pensive distributing and marketing sys tems, Wallace will show, are one of the big elements In keeping up the prices of necessities.

No money for five flays? Let's make it an adventure, Peggins!" But 1 couldn’t see it so. I didu't have sense enough to stop bemoaning our financial stringency, and finally. Jack suggested that the way to keep out of such a fix In the future was to make a budget and live by it. "Eve always kept accounts at home." I told him. "Somebody says that keeping accounts is writing epitaphs on dead money," Jack la'ughed. "1 suppose a budget Is a sort of fu turist fashion," I said. “You divide up your income before you spend it. Let’s make one now!” But a budget was not to be quickly mapped out over the breakfast table. Jack had to go to the public library for a model. He came home at night with it in his pocket. "First of all, we save.” he explained. “Put down 10 per cent for savings. Rent we have already contracted for, our lease says SOO a month; that's one fifth of our income; 20 per cent for rent is too much if wo have a fuinily—when we have a family"—here Jack kissed me—"we'd have to save on rent to spend on food." “Clothing, 15 per cent. Housekeeping, including laundry, cleaning and any ex tra help, 10 per cent. Culture, meaning magazines and newspapers, health and recreation, charities, 15 per cent; food, 20 per cent, and 10 per cent for personal and miscellaneous, my daily lunches for example. But I guess we'll have to ex perirnent a little, Peggins i Taxes have to come in somewhere." Somehow housekeeping seems much more important to me, now I have some fixed rules for spending. But I wish I had suggested the budget myself. I can’t help feeling "censored" because Jack thought of It first.—Copyright, 1922. (TP Ec Cc -Cauefl.) APRIL 18, 1922. LADY ASTOR AN AMERICAN OF DISTINCTION Speaker at National Conven tion of League of Women Voters Social Leader. By FRANCES GORDON DENNY, Lady Nancy Astor, M. P., who will speak at the Pan American conference of women and the national convention of tho League of Women Voters in Baltimore this week, will probably be the center o£ interest for the majority of delegates to both assemblies. Her position as the first woman member of the British Parliament; is in Itself a guarauty of distinction, but as an American, w r ho has attained this unusual distinction she is doubly inter esting. She is the daughter of the lata Chiswell D. Langhorne of Greenwood, Va., the descendani of a long line of colonial ancestry, and was a leader, be fore her marriage, in Southern society. An Indianapolis woman, who was ono of her classmates in college, describes “the beautiful Nancy Langhorne” a3 a high-spirited girl, full of pranks and mischief, but giving promise of the abil ities that have been so brilliantly de veloped in her later career. Like most Southern girls, she had the gift of rea ly speech and the engaging aplomb peculia" to the daughters of the fine old families of Dixie. She must have needed both whan, as the wife of the young Viscount: Astor, she went to take her place among the nobility of England. VISCOT NT’S TITLE NOT OF LONG STANDING. Her husband's father, the first Vis. count, would no doubt have preferred tA wed his eldest son to a title, ignoring the fact that his own was not of long standing and had been won only by vir. tue of his millions—for even in England great fortunes sometimes buy titles o< nobility. There had been more or less criticism in America when this branch of the Astor family renounced their citizen, ship in the United States to become sub. Jects of Great Britain. The usual objec tion was raised that the Astor fortune had been made in this country and that It ought to he spent here. They werq accused of snobbery and all that. But after all, I suppose there i# more reason why an American should no(j become a citizen of Great Britain i$ hi chooses than a Briton Bhould become ad American citizen. We have a great many of the latter—some very distinguished ones, too —and would like to have more, A little reciprocity is not a had thinly especially Just now. Lady Astor's ex. perience as a British subject and as a member of the British Parliament h*H fitted her to speak with authority on re. lntions between her native country and the country of her adoption that she could not otherwise have had. Because of this very fact. American worn4b are ex. peeling her to bring to the Pan-American conference a message of special value. UNIQUE SITUATION OF HUSBAND AND WIFE. It is a unique situation for n husband nnd wife to he sitting as members re spectively of the two highest governing bodies in a country; but such is the case in the Astor family. Upon the death of his father in 3919, Waldorf Astor, by vir tue of his right of succession, became 3 member of the British of Lords. Thereupon, bis wife, our handsome Nancy, decided to try # for a seat in tha House of Commons.- She conducted bee campaign with \a* vigor that made her English confreres gasp. She traveled over England making speeches in all sorts of plaeqs and before alt sorts and conditions of people. Tn England it is a common occurrence for people in the crowd to shout ques. tioris to public speakers and to seek to annoy and confuse them by jibes and impertinences. Among American men of almost any class traditional chivalry would protect a woman sppaker from such rudeness, but the lower classes in England do not always have such scru-i pies, and neither tho sex nor the title of Lady Astor rendered her immune to their attacks But her quick American tongua always had an answer to fling back. <>n ono occasion when she was address, lng a meeting of workmen in the ship, yards a man shouted that she would better be at home taking care of hop children. The little lady replied that she was willing to have the condition of her children compared with that of the children of any one present, and she Invited the man to come to hei* house and see for himself. Tho next time she made a speech she brought hep youngest child along as an exhibit. It seems she has five children, the eldest a boy of 15. ADd that reminds me: The other day at a meeting of one of the largo local organizations of women there were five candidates for the offl e of judge of the Juvenile court, who made ten-minute speeches for the purpose of calling atter.. tion to their particular qualifications fop that office, and they all told how many children they had. They even went iur ther; they cled with one another. In fact, by the time It got down to tha fifth candidate. It seemed more likely a paternity contest than a political meeting. Some of the women had to take refuse under their ear muffs to hide their amuse ment. The next day I happened to he in an office where some young women were discussing the speeches of the day befote, "Those men seemed to think we would he more interested in the number of chil dren they had than in anything else.'* said one. "Yes." observed Rnother. "it's funny what cheap bait they thing they can catch us with, isn't it!" But this Is a digression from Lady As tor. Knmor*says that she is expected to come to Lafayette to address the State convention of tho Indiana League of Women Voters, which will meet there May 9 nnd 10. In that case, some enter prising organization must surely bring her to the capital city for a lecture. It would be Interesting to have such an op portunity to compare our illustrious ex citlzen with Mrs. Asquith, whose visit is still fresh lu our memories. Dr. Bishop's Talks By HR. K. K. BISHOP. HE simplest way for the normal person to keep track of his health is by use Weighing scales are veritable health barometers. Although, of I course, there are exceptions to the rule, they gener i ally tell one ac • curately whether 1 one is eating prop er food and getting sufficient exercise. Weighing scales are exceedingly im portant objects for determining health of babies and young children. If a baby consistently gains weight, it Is usually a healthy baby. So, also, for growing chil dren. Some children and grownupe, too, will find when they consult the weight chart attached to many standard weighing scales that they are either over or under normal weight. Such conditions are not healthy if too pronounced'. A physical examination and consultation with a physician will soon find the reason for the abnormality. Change of diet, exercise and such rem edies will lively soon show a chauge for the better. One who is careful about his halth wij find it advantageous to rule a little chart upon which be can keep a weekly record of his weight.
