i Dorothy Dix Talks j TO HUSBANDS AND FATHERS. I Byjyj:nTirY. .DJ:3;,JJ,h.fJ. ."'.'rId g SfeJU?g5g Writer I Utention Mr. Husband and Father! These few lines are written especially ioT you. Please read them. Have you made your -will? And if vou have made it, have you tied up whatever money you are leaving your vife and daughter in some sort of a fool-proof trust, so that they can neither spend it, nor give it away, nor 1,e cheated out of it? If you have not done this you have committed a crime against those who ,;. pi ndcnt upon you and who look 1 0 vou. and have a right to look to you, to defend thorn against a world that j hard and cruel to penniless women. If you le not done this, go this verT day to your lawyer and make vour will, and leave your property in trust to your wife and daughters. Man men put off making their wills because they hate to face the thought cf death. This is puerile cowardice The oDe certain thing in an uncertain world is death. It is bound to como to ich one of us, and the most com porting thought that an man can have when he comes to lay his head on the now for the last time is that he is Qeaving those he loves safeguarded against want. rf there is a hell it can have no -worse torment than the remorse a juan must suffer if after death, his spirit can visit the earth and see hist joor, helpless old wife eating thei bitter bread of dependence, and his tenderly reared daughters battling hopelessly against poverty because he -was too stupid and careless to make ia will settling the money he left them Ion them in such a way that they could lot lose it. I repeat again with all the em mhasis and earnestness of which I am capable, Mr Husband and Father make a will ad leave your wife's and daughters' property in trust so that Ithey cannot touch the principal Fiftv years hence when women have' tpone into business, and every girl is brought up to follow some gainful oc cupation, women as a class may know how to handle money and it may be l ttafe to leave them their property out Tight, but at the present time they lack this knowledge, and it is not safe to leave it to them unsecured. Even- man knows this He knows that he wouldn't trust his wife to han dle his business or decide on his in- that his death will work some sort of a miracle in her that will inspire her with sufficient financial acumen to handle his estate when he is gone0 Of course no such miracle occurs, and the familiar tragedy that you have seen happen to a dozen of your friends' families will happen to your own. Mr. Husband and Father, unless you are wiser thaji your friends were. Think of how often a little scene like this happens You are seated at jour desk and your office boy comes In and says that Mrs A wants to see you She comes in, a pathetic shabby little creature in black, with hair that is suddenly gone gray, a figure that Beems to have shriveled up all at once, and a face that has lost all of its Jolly middle aged pTettiness. You look once into the haggard, desperate ;md .swallow hard, and haven't the courage to meet them again. For Mr?. A is the widow of your old friend Many ta the good dinner you've eaten in her beautiful home. Many is the jolly ride you've iakn in her automobile., for A was a rich man, and when he died his family came into a comfortable pot of money. But they haven't a cent now. oome how. the whole fortune slipped through Mrs. A's fingers. Bad invest nirmts, (reckless extraY agance, people who cheated her. relatives who borrowed and couldn't pay back Same old story, and Mrs. A has come to you to ask you if you won't help her to get some work, something whereby she can support herself. What can you say to her. What can you do for her? What, in all this busy j world that demands good and com petent work, can a middle-aged worn- Ian who has never been trained to any (occupation do She's too old to learn new tricks. She lacks the strength and stamina to do manual labor. She's handicapped by the habits of luxury and ease of half a century of rich living. She lacks alertness and high spirits, th. brightness and charm that makes peo ple want to have young girls about them. You would be only too clad to make a place for her in your office ii you could, hut there's absolutely nothing that she Is capable of doing, and so! you rell her some polite lie, and hold i out a few vague promises that vou'll! try to get her off, because you are : thinking, what if you were dead, and' that was your poor old wife going like a beggar from door to door, and you cannot bear the thought of 11 Or perhaps it is A's young daugh ter that you run across in a store, sagged back utterly exhausted against the shelves She looks so thin, worn! and tired and she's just the age of your blooming Betty, who is dancing through the picnic time of life. And then you curse A for his stu pidity in not having left his propert so those fool women couldn't beggar themselves. Yet very likely you are! doing the same thing that A did. and j your family may come to the same end, I do not need to tell you, Mr. Hus-, band and Father, that there are men who are human ghouls, who amass for- I tunes by preying on widows and or phans. You know that these men i come to women in the guise of religion, of friends, even of relatives to ruth lessly rob them You can cite a dozen widows whom you personally know, who have been induced by the deacons in their churches to invest their all in phoney slocks, or to back scheme so trans parently fraudulent that the promoters would never have dared to propose them to a man. You have seen tbo sudden affection that Cousin Thomas develops for poor Mary until he bor rows all of poor Mary s money with out any security. You know that women consider a good inestment the one that pays the biggest interest without reference i to its stability. ou know that, women Back Lame and Achy Every Morning ? It's hard to have to start off every day with a lame, ach- , , ins back, but you can expect little peace if your kidneys arc weak. While at first there may be nothing more serious than i backache, headaches, dizry spells and kidney irregularities, the longer you delay helping the kidneys the more danger there is of worse troubles, such as dropsy, gravel, arterial harden ing, heart trouble, or Bright's disease.

April 3 An j appeal to the American people to , "back the Liberty loan to the limit" was made here yesterday by Colonel j Theodore Roosevelt in an address to a 1 delegation of Liberty loan workers j who had made a pilgrimmage to his Sagamore Hill estate. "If we do not w in now. fighting abroad beside our allies, then sooner or later our sons or grandsons will have to fight here at home, without I allies, for their home, their wives and their little ones," said Colonel Roo.se -I ; velt. "A loan does not float Itself," he1 i continued. "No government work does , itself. Somebody has to do it. I ap- I peal to the people to back up to the I limit of their power.

Orders were issued today for the mobilization it Seattle for the enlisted personnel of j Base Hospital Number fifty formed at the University of Washington and the transfer of the unit to Camp Fremont. Palo Alto. Cal. Major-General B Bagleson of the medical reserve corps 1 will be in command INTERNED SAILORS; SENT m FROM SILT LIE Salt Lake Tribune Veiled by the secrecy that characterizes all Impor tant military movements in the coun try, the 520 sailors and officers of the German ships Cormoran and Geler, i which were interned at Fort Douglas, have been transferred to the war prison camp at Fort McPherson, Ga.J and are now safely lodged in the big; naval prison camp at that place. So carefully guarded were all move-: ments in connection with the transfer of the Germans from the local to the Georgia camp that few persons out side of official circles knew when the prisoners left Salt Lake, and no one outside of the officials and those taken into their confidence knew where they were going. Loaded into -street cars at Fort Doiulas the prisoners were taken1 through the heart of Salt Lake in the middle of the day, were transferred to a special train at a local depot and sent on their way without the general public knowing that anything of an I unusual nature was taking place be neath their very noses The prisoners were nearly all at tired in civilian clothing, hence their identity was not recognized, except by a few as they passed through the! crowded streets. A few people ' gathered at the depot when the pris-l oners were transferred from the rars; to the train and gazed in inquiring wonder at the proceedings. Orders to transfer all the naval prisoners from the Fort Douglas camp to the general naval camp at Fort Mc - Pherson were received at local prison i headquarters about a week ago. The j I matter was kept a profound secret and I no one suspected that anything was about to happen. Not even the pris- j oners knew exactly what was going to j happen. They were told to prepare for a long railroad trip In the meantime arrangements were, made for a special train to carry the Germans to their new prison home, i j and shortly after noon last Friday, with their baggage and personal be ! longings, the 520 officers and sailors formed in ranks and marched under 'military guard from the gales of the i , Fort Douglas prison to eight street cars that awaited them just outside the compound. The 300 or more civilian enemy aliens interned in one section of the camp became highly excited over the movement and burst forth Into a vig orous rendiiion of the German national anthem. They didn't know where the sailors were going or what for. They didn't know why the) should sing, but they seemed to think it was up to them to sing a German song. Their music hadn't progressed far, however, when the officer of the day quietly in formed them that their turn might come next, and if it did they would probably be sent direct into Germany The information had magic effect upon the noisy patriotic demonstration The strains of the German national anthem died away in echoes from the hills. There was silence. Then, as if trying to ward oft a terrible fate, the burst vigorously forth in the strains of "The Star Spangled Banner." In a long line the cars bearing the German sailors wound their way from the fort through the heart of the city and to the depot. From the cars the Germans were unloaded upon the street in double rank, stretching for nearly a block. The prisoners carried with them rations sufficient for the trip, and their meals were prepared and served on the cars by their own cooks. The soldier guards had their own mess and provisions also. Segregate Prisoners. The German officers were placed in two special cars by themselves, and there was a special car for the military commander of the train and his as sistants. Just -what the removal of the naval prisoners of war lrom the Fort Doug las camp and the leaving the civilian enemy aliens means is not officially known, though it is believed it means the conversion of the local camp into an exclusive, prison for civilian enemy aliens. It is understood that the gov ernment has found it belter to concen trate the military and naval prisoners of war in separate camps by them selves, and thai It will be the policy to have the enemy aliens held in one camp by themselves.

BAKER SEES ITALIAN FROM ITALIAN ARMY HEADQUARTERS, Monday, April 1. (By the Associated I Press.) The American secretary of I war, Newton D. Baker, accompanied by the members of his staff, arrived at the Italian headquarters this morning He was joined here by Ambassador Thomas N. Page, who came from Rome, and Major General Eben Swift, .the head f ike American military mis- i sion to Italy. I The party proceeded to the su i promo command, where a handsome . villa was placed at the disposal of I the American secretary of war. Mr Baker and Mr. Page called on General i Diaz, the secretary remaining for an 'extended talk with the Italian com- mander in chief. Later. General Diaz entertained Sec , rrtary Baker, Ambassador Pagn and General Swift a1 luncheon The con I ference gave opportunity for an agree able exchange of views, in which Gen eral Diaz spoke in high terms of the American troops and Ambassador P ige referred to the strong bonds of fr.ondsbip existing between America and Italy and the desire of ihe United States to do eerythinK which would cutitribute u the winning of the com mon cause. Delayed by Weather. General Diaz desired to conduct Secretary Baker along the Plave river and mountain fronts, but the weather conditions did not permii it. This afterneen Secretary Baker and Ambassador Page met the Duke of Oosta, cousin of inp Victor Emmanuel at the headquarters of the Italian Third army, and later proceeded to Venice, where they saw the ext. ni si ve destruction caused by Teuton air raids and the admirable relief work directed by B H Carroll, the Ameri can consul at Venice, and the Amer ican Red Cross. Mr. Baker and Mr. Page departed tonight for Rome. VENICE, Monday. April 1 (By itho Associated Press.) The desolate condition of Venice. left o by the evacuation of two-thirds of it. popu- lation and the destruction of many of tno churches and buildlncs by aerial bombardments, was witnessed today I by Newton D. Baker, the American : i p-tarv of war Mr Baker and Thomas Nelson Page, the American ambassador, had stopped at the headquarters of the Third Ital ian armv on their way to Venice to , i on the Duke of Aosta, cousin of King Victor Emmanuel and com- I mander of the Italian forces on thr Plavs line. The meeting between the duke and Mr. Baker was most cordial, the duke personally explaining to the American secretary the present mili tary situation and the outlook. Conveyed to Venice. Admiral Marzolo, naval commandani ol Venice, sent his chief of staff and the admiral's barge to convey the American part to the city. The trip was through the Venetian la-oons which afforded a view of the region flooded by the Italian military engineers In order to hold back the enemv's advance. Arriving at Venice, Mr. Baker and Ambassador Page were escorted to the admiral's headquarters. The party then passed through the Grand canal to the Place San Marco and to tin City council chamber, whero the mayor of Venice. Count Cnmani. with the pre'eel and members of the Munici pality, extended the welcome el the Liiy. Count Grimani's address was a warm tribute to the United States and an acknowledgment of America's part in assisting Venice during the recent critical period. Later. Mr. Baker and party visited the Doges' palace, the Campanile and the Basilica of San Marco The secretary noted the defensive armor of sandbags with which all I these world monuments were covered. I He also went through the interior of the Doges' palace, now stripped of I most of its precious paintings and pre senting the appearance qf a citadel. After viewing the churches and other objectives of the aerial bombard -1 ment, Secretary Baker and Ambassa- ! dor Page left for Rome. Issues Statement. Regarding his impressions of Italy, Secretary Baker authorized the fol lowing statement : "I have been deeply interested in the military activity of the Italian army, and regret that log prevented my see ing the marvelous engineering work constructed by them in the ragged mountain country through which their line runs. Nothing could exceed the hospitality with which my visit has been received, and it has been made possible for me to se6 a great deal in .i short time. ' The relations between th Italian army and the people and the Ameri cans here is most sympathetic and cordial, and it gave me pleasure to ex press the appreciation of America for the splendid loyalty of Italy to the common Cause and to reciprocate the warm sentiments expressed every where for America and Americans." i n FRUIT GROWERS MEET Ffill I The annual meeting of the state! horticultural society has been called for Friday, April 5, 191S. at the Hotel Utah, Salt Lake City, beginning at 10 a. m.
