The hall was decorated in colors and
not the least of the pleasure was a
delightful lunch which followed. Miss
Stovel and Mr. Wise chaperoned the
"Let he forget" the swift and si
lent passing of the year, Mr. J. E.
Creswell was pleasantly reminded of
the arrival of his 45th mile stone,
last Friday evening by a most delight
ful surprise in the form of a 7 o'clock
dinner, enjoyed by about twenty
guests. The two tables at which the
dinner was served were gaily decor
ated with valentine motifs, the center
of the honor guest's table being a
beautiful birthday cake bearing hearts
and red lettering suggestive of the
date. The after dinner hours were
spent with visiting and cards,
guests were the Messrs, and Mes

Probably one of the most brilliant
affairs Emmett society folks have en
joyed for several years was the de
lightful Valentine ball given by the
Shrine Club of Emmett Friday even
to about three hundred friends.
Liberty Theatre, the scene of the fes
tivities, was appropriately decorated
with the national colors, while red
hearts and arrows suspended from
ceiling and lights throughout the hall
added the valentine suggestion to the
gay surroundings. On the stage the
mystic symbols of the order were dis
played, with a life size camel, the pro
duction of, the skilled designing of
Robert Burlingame, as the central fig
ure. Here an excellent six-piece or
chestra was seated and their ever pop
ular music lured many to indulge in
the pleasures of the dance who have
not been so tempted in many years. It
was a party for both young and old
and was enjoyed by young and old
those not caring to dance en
joying the gaiety of the occasion and
visiting the while. The Alfalfa quar
tet, ever ready to contribute to the
demands of their admirers, gave two
of their popular numbers, while to
further add to the pleasure of the
guests, punch was served all during
The ladies were charmingly gowned
and many of the men, in full dress,
the Shriners wearing the jaunty fez,
symbolic of the order, lent a touch of
grace and dignity well fitting the occa
sion. Several out-of-town guests par
ticipated, among them being Mr. and
Mrs. Henry Banks from Banks, L. C.
Ferguson of Boise, F. W. Faull of
Horseshoe Bend, and Miss Taylor of

Nearly one-half of the young men
of military age, men in the very prime
of life, proved physically unfit to serve
in the army, the provost marshal gen
eral reports. The bulk of those unfit
for army service must be under a
handicap in the Nation's industrial
life. A baseball club with three men
of the nine physically unfit to play i
the game wouldn't get very far. A
nation cannot afford to cut down its
productive capacity by permitting its ,
men to be only 70 per cent efficient. ;
A very large proportion of the phvsi
cal defects could be got rid of if they ;
should be taken in hand early in life. !
Tuberculosis was one of the chie f
sources of physical unfitness in the j
army, and tuberculosis is a prevent- I
able disease. Bad teeth, bad eyes. I
and other defects could be corrected
if taken in time.
