1 t r y Y ? Y ? Y People Edited by CEUA "MY Telephone 38 10 IN THE CHEST UPSTAIRS. (By Edmund Vance Cooke.) There are days of labor and days of pride. There are day to roam, there are days to ride. There are days for wandering: far and wide. There are days as sweet aa a baby's breath. There are days as gray as the mask of death. There are days when the battle is long:, There are days when the soul must be firm and strong. But once in a while, I forsake my cares And I ask a day, in which no one shares. Save the ghosts of days in the chest upstairs. As I slip in the keep and I lift the lid To all other hands but mine forbid, I am lost in the land where Romance la hid. There's a spurt of ribbon, a whiff otd lace, And a ghost of perfume which salutes my face. There's a card brought home xrom a by-gone ball. There's a book of verses, and pansies pressed To mark the thoughts which we loved the best. And here lies, my heart In the old. old chest. There's a bridal veil and a rose or two, There's a wedding-ring and a baby's shoe. And "w little garments, old and new. -' There i a tattered doll, mended part to part. And the wide, crooked stitches prick my heart. .Which the little, dead fingers made long since. O, my world Is reduced to tears and prayers, Tet I turn away from the chest up stairs Peeling somehow, somewhere, some body cares!

Do you know that every time you take one of these packages, you are directly helping the Red Cross, put ting Just so much money into the treasury? Tor that is Just what you are doing. When Mrs. R. F. Mitchell started the Take Your Package Home move ment in Pensacola. she met with an immediate response from the mer chants of the city, who saw in this plan not only a means of helping the Red Cross, but of solving a question which has been a serious one for some time that of messenger service. But many of the clerks do not think to suggest that you take your pack ages home. And in this way the Red Cross misses many a penny that otherwise might be theirs. When you go shopping, will you not ask the clerk for a Red Cross Sticker, and take your package home? For only the packages which have Red Cross stickers, on them count for the Red Cross. This is one way that every woman can help in the Red Cross work. Let the clerk who waits upon you know that you want a Red Cross sticker put upon every package that you buy. In this way you will help the Red Cross in a very material way. And you will enroll yourself In the army of women which is getting larger every day. MEET AT W. O. VV HALL.

ROTRANT SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL PLAY PROVES MOST SUCCESSFUL With several taking their roles In a truly professional manner, and the entire cast above the average, "Aaron Boggs Freshman" presented last night by the Senior class of the Pensacola High School, won new honors for the P. H. S. Curtain Club, and sent the audience away "boost ing" for the splendid attraction, which will be presented again this evening at the auditorium. It is not too much to say that of at least three of the cast reached pro fessional heights, and as for the play itself it was quick with action and the humor fairly bubbled through every scene. From the time Ephenetus P. Boggs appeared with his son, Aaron, the fun began. Indeed, it had already begun, on the entrance of Elyzabethe Mau della Feeney, in which role Miss Eula lie Oliver distinguished herself. Such a delightfully slangy, dellciously charming, and prettily coquettish Elyzabethe Maudelia she was. Indeed one could exhaust a great many de scriptive phrases, and then you could not know how really winsome and amusing she was unless you avail yourself of the chance to see the clever play this evening. And when you do you are sure to feel that Miss Oliver must divide the honors with Kathryn Hughes, who in the role of Mrs. Pickens was one of the evening's great success. It was not only what she had to say and Mrs. Pickens was quite loquacious but her many bits of advice to her friend, Mrs. Chubbs, her frank disap proval of Mr. Chubbs. and her eager ness to let the world know all that she knew, put Mrs. Pickens in a class all by herself. Miss Hughes is to bs congratulated upon the wonderfully clever manner in which she handled the role. Earle Quigley a-s Ephenetus P. Boggs was excellent the only regret beinfr that he appeared only In the first act. As Aaron Boggs. John Shepard was extremely good, handling his part with discrimination and making a hit with; the audience. Indeed, every role was admirably taken, and there can be no doubt but that the auditorium will be crowded this eveninjr by those who will have heard of the fafe of this very enter taining and well handled play. Mrs. A. C. Reilly. director of dramatics of the Pensacola High School, certainly deserves the highest praise for the excellent production, for which she ls responsible.. The program follows: Synopsis Act 1. Opening of College term in 1918. Aaron Boggs arrives from Splinter ville, escorted by his father. Aaron meets an old friend in Miss Elyza bethe Maudelia Feeny.

Prac tlces have been held regularly for the past two months, and every partici pant is well up in his or her part. At the rehearsal on Saturday, the costumes were used for the first time. and they were much admired by all who saw this rehearsal. The costumes were procured at great expense, from one of the leading costumers of the South, and every principal, as well as each member of the chorus will be at tired in costumes befitting the time, place and eharacter. The scene is laid in France in the early part of the eighteenth century, and the familiar silk and satin costumes, and three cornered cocked hats are seen in the Play. The opera features six soloists and a chorus of seventy, as well as ghosts, sailors, village maidens and officials of the villages such as notary and as sessor. The musical part of the play has been left entirely In the hands of Mrs. Benn, and the action parts, which are quite as important as the musical parts, have been directed by Mrs. A. C. Reilly.
