THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN -TELEGRAM, RICHMOND, 1ND., SATURDAY, DEC. 30. 1922
PAGE ELEVEN WOULD BE ARTISTS ARE DISAPPOINTED , ! BY SONG PUBLISHER ! From the Detroit News! Perhaps fortunes can be made from writing popular song hits, but they aren't made from publishing houses who advertise for eong manuscripts which they offer to set to music and make the writer rich. Certain bouses In the middle "West have made a specialty of working on former service men. The New York State Bureau of Rehabilitation, estab lished to aid former service men, de cided to investigate. The Bureau en gaged a man to write a poem and in structed him to do his worst. This is what he turned out: "Begorra, bejabbers, bedad and bejov. Be the band o me hat, be the heel of me brogue, I'm goin' to marry sweet Judy McKay, Ti-oo-rail-i-day, and cups o nice tay. CHORUS ' Cups o' nice tay wid Judy McCay, And lumps o' nice sugar for which I won't pay. A kiss an' carcasses . from my little Dutch, Her nose is so red and she walks with a crutch.

Scribe New Years resolutions are now in order. Many suggestions might be offered Post C luminaries, which, if followed, probably would materially lessen the crime wave, particularly in the postage stamp department. Some one intimates that the city council might 'with profit resolve to devote one evening, each month to the re peal or revision of 'dead or freak or dinances. H. Shuman Jones, press chairman of Post C, is dead, e cannot rea iize it. and can hardly believe it. Truly "Death loves a shining mark.' Just a few evenings since, he was the life of the Saturday night meeting of the board,' looking the personification of good health and happiness. Last Sunday morning he passed out and was laid to rest in Earlhanr. cemetery : on Wednesday, the 27th. Shuman was a real man. He came to Rich mond from Milton with the old Hoo- teier Drill company,- and afterwards was connected with the Starr Piano comnany. both here and on tb Pa cific coasf, but the majority of his lire was spent among his host of friends in Richmond. . He' counted that day lost which gave' him no op puortnity to make a new ' friend or serve an old one. He was a broad, bright and cheery . soul, always opti mistic, always friendly, always help ful. He never shirked a civic , or so cial duty, was popular in lodge and club circles,. unusually generous in bis support of all worthy causes and an unfailing advocate of peace and good will. His passing leaves a tremendous gap in our community. The sympa thies of Post C so out to Mrs. Jones in this dark hour. President ! Charles B. Beck is num bered among those who have ben suffering with bad colds and a touch of influenza. He was unable to at tend the board mooting last Saturday i V V Inttrrt Prnnnz ' ! evening.-, " "i""" ' To Exploit Barge Canal WASHINGTON A proposal to or ganize a 20,000,000 semi-punac cor poration to equip the. New. York state barge canal with boats sufficient to take care of the grain trade of th west was indorsed at a joint confer ence here late Friday of New York members of congress and delegates from the state to the national rivers and harbors congress. The composition was mailed to the publishing house. The reply praised the song writer. Undoubtedly a new popular song hit had been written, ac- cording to the glowing missive. En- closed was a bond and contract The company guaranteed a 4 per cent roy- alty on all copies sold, but the writer must pay $42 to pay for setting the words to music. Fifty free copies of the eong would be given to the writer. The only pledge is that the song will be published and fifty copies given the writer. There is no promise to push sales of the song, and, so far as known, there never have be"en any record breaking sales of such songs. Then came a letter from the chief composer, promising to exert his best efforts to set the composition to music. It is mimeographed and rubber stamp ed. No one has been discovered to have become rich from such efforts. It isn't a swindle, in one sense of the word, for the contract is carried out; but the that are doomed to a fall, prospectus leads the writer to hopes Ifc . - ;.:.....,.. v. - , , Ldith Mason as "Rigoletto's daughter.

POLISH PATRIOT GAVE - SERVICES TO AMERICA Poles point with justifiable pride to the part played by Tardeusz Koscius ko, their national hero, In the Revolu tionary war, and especially to the part he played in trie victory at Saratoga, which won for America not only the campaign, but her recognition as an independent nation from Louis XVI. But Kosciusko's services did not in the first instance receive the full rec ognition tl might have been expect ed from the new republic. He alone of all the superior officers of the Revolution received no promition oth er than that given wholesale by con gress, and was forced to apply person ally to Washington to. rectify, the omis sion. In language not too cordial, Washington presented his request to congress, which conferred upon Kos ciusko the rank of brigadier-general. Kosciuszko was a visitor in "Paris when the envoys from America were there on their mission of enlisting the help of France in the conflict of the states with Great Britain. He heard the story of a young country striving for her Independence. He came at once to America, and as a volunteer offered his services to the United States to fight in the cause of free dom. During the war he was an en gineer, with rank of colonel. With the memories or tne Revolu tion burnt into his soul, 10 years lat er Kosciusko led a more desperate throw for a freedom to him incompar ably dearer Ms own country's. De troit News.
