I HAVE A RENDEZVOUS WITH
By Alan Seeger.
I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes round with
And apple blossoms fill the air.
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days
It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into this dark land
And cloBe my eyes and quench my
It may be I shall pass him, still,
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered
When Spring comes round again this
And the first meadow flowers
God knows twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blicsful
. Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to
Where hushed awakenings are dear,
But, I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.

PENSACOLA CHAPTER, U. D. C.HOLDS;
IMPORTANT MEETING AT BIVOUAC
At the meeting of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy held
yesterday afternoon at the bivouac it
was decided to celebrate the birthday
of General Lee, on January 19th,
with a large ball, at which the vet
erans will be honor guests.
Mrs. R. F. Mitchell presided at the
meeting, at which a number of im
portant matters were transacted,
anion which was the decision to ex
tend an invitation to the state con
vention to meet in Pensacola in 1918.
The next convention takes place in
May in Miami, but it is necessary to
make tentative plans in regard to
this meeting, in order to secure the
pledges of the various chapters.
Another Important decision was
the naming of the Pensacola chapter
after some noted Confederate, and J
it was decided to receive names at
the January meeting, to be voted
upon at the meeting in February.
The official report of the- general
convention has been received from
the president of the state division,
who was the guest of the Pensacola
chapter, enroute from the convention
in Dallas. .Tae following excerpts
from the report will be of interest to
all members of the U. D. C:
, Mrs. Cordelia Powell Odenheimer,
our president general, is a woman
of wonderful magnetism, her face
just beamed with love for her
Daughters and our glorious "Sprk.
In convention she was a dignified
presiding officer, commanding the
attention of everyone. In the hotel,
at the receptions and in committee
room 6he impressed you as a gentle,
fiweet, unassuming woman who i3
just one of you. Her response to our
welcome was short, showing that she
is a business woman, but it was
beautiful and was heartily applauded.
Mrs. Odenheimer asked the con
cention to endorse a bill for preserv
ing important records in the war
department, and that each division
ask their congressmen and senators
to pass it. Mrs. Odenheimer then
referred to the $10,000 that "remained
to be collected at the time she had
written her report on Shiloh and Ar
lington monuments and the window
in the Red Cross building. The Shi
loh committs had not told their
president sJrneral that the $50,000
for Shiloh had been raised. That
was to be a surprise for her. The
president general then spoke of the
veterans reunion to be held in the
Bpring of 1917 in Washington City,
and urged that chapters ' co-operate
with her in stamping it as a history
making epoch. She asked that di
visions srupply veterans with uni
forms, if possible, where they are
not able to buy them, as it was the
first and probably the only occasion
when they would meet in our na-

This evening at the Armory Hall,
for the benefit of the Pearl Eagan
Home, a large dance will be given
the Fairchfld Orchestra having in
augurated a series of dances for the
benefit of this most worthy charity.
This is not the first time that this
orchestra has extended its services
for the benefit of the home, a large

in the spring which netted for the
home more than sixty dollars.

HAWAIIAN NIGHT AT THE
SAN CARLOS INTERESTS MANY
Hawaiian Night at the San Carlos is
interesting society, and many reser
vations have already been made for
this dinner dance, which gives every
promise of eclipsing anything of the
kind ever introduced by the San Car
los management. So successful have
these evenings been at the Vineyard
of the Cawthon in Mobile, that
"Hawaiian Night" was repeated last
For their entertainment along with
the dancing enjoyed by the guests,

our Confederate museum, education

eracy, saying we should bind our
children closely around us, for the
children of today would be the
Daughters of tomorrow, and it is
through them our work will live.
She spoke beautifully of the social
cpurtesies extended to her in our
honor, the sorrows that were hers
because they were ours, in the pass
ing away of many familiar taces
and splendid workers.
The president general then read
her decisions and recommendations,
and afterwards withdrew ftera.
Sister Esther Carlotta, who was
chairman of ' rules andregulations
committee, was next called on for
that report, which was accepted with
a few amendments. In speaking of
this report the Dallas press paid
Sister Esther Carlotta a beautiful
compliment by saying she was per
haps the ablest parliamentarian in
The chairman of education made
the following report: The U. D. C.
is now maintaining forty-five schol
arships, valued at $6,535, through
the general association. Add to
these the 566 1-2 scholarships, val
ued at $58,663 offered by the twenty-four
states, and the total educa
tional work of the association for
1916 is 611 1-2 scholarships, valued
at $65,198. r
The registrar general reported the J
addition of 6,435 names during 1915,
bringing the total membership to 93r
849, and 490 U. D. C. pins were sold
at a" profit of $779.09. The custodian
of crosses reported 1,690 crosses sent
out to the-various divisions. The
Rose loving cup was won by a Texas
Uwoman for the best essay, the sub
ject being, "The Misrepresentation
of Jefferson ' Davis in History and
of the most important pieces
of work ever undertaken by the!

so far as funds are concerned. Shi

There is no charity in Pensacola

It is probable that a number from
Mobile will come over for the dance,
