One of the big stories being told
these days is to the effect that when
peace is finally declared it will take
two years to bring our soldiers back
to this country,
credited with saying with the shortage
of ships it will require that length of
time to transport them.. While this
particular reporter has no authentic
information on the subject, he is con
fident this is just wild talk. In less
than a year after hostilities have end
ed, all the American soldiers will be
back home with the possible exception
of a force of regulars kept there for
the purpose of enforcing the terms of
peace.

"Our son Percy has been "over there"
about July 1st and we h»v° had
number of letters from him since
his arrival overseas. Alvin is anxious
to go, but too young, although he has
the size and physical development of
the average man of 19 or 20. When
he came to Washington and sought to
get some work it was necessary to get
a permit from the school authorities
account of his age, at that time less
than 16, and to get this he had to be
examined by the school physician.
When 1 brought him up to the doctor
and he stood about two inches taller
than the doctor himself, the latter
turned to me with a smile and said: 'It
is a joke to cal! a fellow like this a

Theodore Roosevelt, who recently

mere muscle, and that the brain con
tinues to grow in power fifty years af
er the muscles decline.

About 9:30 the guests arrived

and were ushered into the booth,
where the table was laid for the un
superstitious thirteen. Centering the
tablé was a large bowl containing the
favors and from this extended stream
ers, which when drawn out, presented
each guest with a jaunty paper cap—
these in yellow and orange suggestive
of the season's colorings. Dainty
place cards of Puritan maids, pump
kins and turkeys were used, and with
attendant good spirits the guests en
joyed the three course Thanksgiving
menu prepared by Chef Nelson. "Oh
its adways fair weather, when good
fellows get together" applies equally
to "the girls", as was amply demon
strated by the jolly hours of this oc
casion. A ukelele added zest to the
chorus as the girls gave vent to spirits
long pent up by the closing ban. The
guests were the Misses Florence An
derson, Mary Quinn, Clara Peterson,
Edna Landers, Frances Landers-Payne

Wholesale grocers believe there will
be no general or permanent decline of
prices as a result of the arrival of
peace, on account of the general food
shortage in the world which America
is expected to meet. Ocean trade
routes are now open, and a hungry
world is now crying to the United
States for food. This country has been
called upon to feed both friends and
former enemies. In addition, there
will be as many American mouths in
Europe to feed for at least a year as
there are now.

hungry, night or day, try one of these

gracefully up the street with the
"little old Ford" when same came to
a standstill. After considerable mor
al suasion, et cetera, the customary
et cetera, Mrs. W. discovered that a
little more substantial incentive was
required, so she procured a gallon of
gasoline and the little old Ford snort
ed once and then rambled right along.
