Surrender of German Navy U . S. Navy Officials Take Part
On board the U. S. S. New York at the
Admiral Rodman (2) and Admiral
the Prince of Wales (5) joined in
oecK. - -
The surrender of virtually her entire navy battleships, destroyers, submarines, -iine layers and all marked
the end of Germany as a world power. Under the terms of t&e armistice the Germans were forced to surrender
their high seas flet off May Island, east of the English coast, in the presence of the assembled allied fleet. Comman
ders of the allied fleets, King George, the Prince of Wales and other notables exchanged greetings aboard ship
while the allied fleet awaited the coming of the German navy.
When the men had gone Edith Fer-
rol and Fay Summers sat looking, at
each other. The eyes of the older
woman said, "Thank God for my
brother's success!" Those of the girl
expressed plainly the thought "A ha!
Things are coming my way after all!"
Edith's mind was not attuned to
financial discussion in big terms. The
limit of her imaginings for many years
of married life had been the posses
sion of a regular allowance twenty
dollars; ten even; anything, so long
as it was regular, and she didn't
have to ask for it and it was hers to
do with it as she willed. . The Baving
of a dime on her weekly meat bill
meant successful finance. The loss of
a dollar when a basket of apples turn
ed out badly, was tragedy. The very
unfamiliarity of the sums discussed by
Ned and the promoter, Larney, bred
a little distrust in Edith's mind.
Yet her belief in her brother was
so great that nothing with his success
as a basis semed really improbable.
Larney, she figured, was used to big
money, and talked of it as clerks in
the mint handle currency without
regarding it as cash at all, merely as
so much metal and paper!
Fay Summers regarded the whole
proceedings as the natural outcome of
any effort made In her behalf. Ned
Baw he would have to be successful
to win her, and he was waking up and
doing something about it, that was
all! The man she married had to
have money. She. was an "expensive
girl," and was proud of it.
"If that man really makes $100,000
with Ned's invention in two months,"
began Fay, "we can easily buy the
house on the hill that lovely two
story one with the pergola and the
garage and the place for the swim
ming pool, and have a really decent
car! I do hope Ned will be able to
draw some of his fifty thousand right
away. He will, won't he, Mrs. Ferrol?"
Fay had difficulty calling Ned's Bis
ter anything but "Mrs. Ferrol." It
was her one diffidence. Somehow
Edith's manner held the girl at a dis
tance. This manner was colder than
usual as she listened to Fay's charac
teristic question, her eyes significantly
upon her bare engagement finger.
"I don't know. Fay," replied Edith
quietly. ."But I think that house is
too expensive and too large for you.
It would cost a great deal to keep up.
You couldn't save."
"Oh, you are so old fashioned!" ex
claimed Fay with a patronizing titter.
"Nobody pretends to make ends meet
nowadays, not to speak of saving any
thing! "You might as well be dead as
have a tin-Lizzie in a portable garage.
And I'd be ashamed to have the neigh
bors see cotton underwear hanging on
my clotheslines! If Ned gets $50,000
out of his invention, I'm going to have
that house and give a dinner party
that little old Arcadia will remember

idea entirely. Nobody economizes in

"Or kills them," murmured Edith,
her heart full of resentment that this
selfish, shallow-hearted girl should so
easily have her desires fulfilled, while
she and others even more deserving,
more devoted wives should be con

Red Cross Launches Drive For
30,000 Members in County
The campaign for 30,000 Wayne
county members of the Red Cross In
the 1918 Roll Call has been launched
Last year, officers of the Red Cross
point out the membership quota for
the county was 10,000. It was over
obtained by several thousand, v. Greatly
Increased support is expected this
year, since the work of the Red Cross
among the men in France has been
brought so forcefully to the attention
of the public.
The work which the Red Cross has
accomplished, and the need for fur
ther support was described at the Col
iseum Sunday evening by Dn Arthur
J. Francis of the Red Cross speakers
organization. Dr, Francis recently re
turned from Europe where he saw the
work of the Red Cross at first hand.
"We all take the Red Cross pretty
much for granted," said Dr. Francis,
"and In a way, that Is something of a
compliment to ourselves as a nation,
and also as individuals. It proves for
one thing that we have a quick imag
ination, and also that we don't waste
time in stopping to admire the bigness
of an achievement after we have or
ganized a big thing and done a task in
a big way." . - ,
"Before the war, most of us knew
the Red Cross as a sort of emergency j
relief society that had done most ex-j
cellent work In organizing committees
of succor for the aid of those suffer
ing from the untoward effects of
earthquakes, fires, floods, famines, or
epidemics. Few of us were members
of this splendid organization at those
times, but by Christinas of this pres
ent year I dare say that there will be
very few, if any, who have not heard
of the Red Cross, and who have not
responded to the roll call."
"It will interest you lo know that
the American Red Cross is today one
of the greatest corporations In the
world. It has the largest number of
stockholders, because it is owned by
the American people from the Atlan
tic to the Pacific. Since the United
States entered the great world war
it has done approximately $240,000,
000 worth of business, and expects to
do about $40,000,000 more during the
coming winter. Few corporations
can match this record. Beyond any
question it is the greatest organiza
tion for mercy and friendship the
world has ever seen."
"In the first year and a half of the
war, Its Home Service department
has bn friend and good neighbor to
over JOO.OOO families of men in the
service of Uncle Sam. It has meant
untold things to the morale of the
men at the front."
"After all," Dr. Francis insisted, "it
Isn't the material achievement that
we ought to glory in, even though It
Is one of the most astonishing, and
one of the finest things we've done in
the war. The thing that is outstand
ing and glorious 13 the self-conquest
Involved. We are learning the lesson
of service. We are acquiring a na
tional sense of social justice, and we
are winning the love and undying
friendship of half, yes, more than half,
of the peoples of the world because
we have made ourselves the servant of
all. Herein lies the deeper signifi
cance of the American Red Cross. It
has wrought a spiritual service par ex
cellent for it has helped to organize
the patriotism of the nation, and to
consecrate it to the cause or service.
It has helped us overcome our selfish
ness and our greed.' It has given us
the chance to grow in epiritual graces.
It has stimulated our desire to live for
humanity the world over"
