CHILDREN TO CELEBRATE TOMORROW Alonzo and The Pup Disapprove of Nuzzles jJUNDOR §<_cft_@na BOYS AND GIRLS TO PAY TRIBUTE Sons and Daughters Unite to Commemorate Mothers' Day in the City How many of the Juniors have heard of JMiss Annie Jarvis? She is the Avoman who brought about the establishment of a "mothers' day" in almost every stale in the union, not to mention the nations of the world and whose indefatigable efforts have served to arouse in every man, woman and child a sense of the beauty of motherhood and the duty we owe to our mothers. Miss Jarvis is a Philadelphia woman. A few years ago, alone and unaided she started the "mothers' day" movement, and so eloquent was her plea that the idea found instant and hearty ac ceptance. Since then the plan has been gaining ground and within the last four years the setting aside of a mothers' day has been accepted and indorsed by nearly every governor in the union and many of the crowned heads of Eu rope. "Mothers' day" falls on the sec ond Sunday of May. Tomorrow is the day when the Junior boys and girls pay special court to mother. On all the other holidays, remember, mother pays special attention to you, but on the second Sunday in May condi tions are reversed a bit and moth er comes in for the lion's share of pleasures. See if you can't do something especially nice for her tomorrow. Show her how much you care for her and how very dear she is to you. Help.her with the work around the house, wait on her for a change and give her the benefit of her holiday. "Mothers* day" will be celebrat ed in many of the churches tomor** row, but that is not enough, boys and girls. It should be celebrated in your hearts as well. There is no one in all the world who will do as much for you as will your mother. When every one else has forsaken you and you haven't a friend on earth, your mother will stand by you with words of en couragement and love. See if you can't make her to morrow a very pleasant one in deed. The white carnation has been chosen as the flower symbolical of filial devotion and the florists are crowding their windows with the beautiful emblems of purity and love, for everyone's going to make a big bow to mother tomor row. Don't forget to wear a white carnation and wish mother the happiest returns of the day.
