THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL, TrKrrA Y MORNING. MAY 18, 1919. 14 PA TRICIA WRITES OF PENSACOLA AND PEOPLE TO POLLY IN MANHATTAN 1'olly.. my love: It Is too dull for words down her. But it is delightful, natheiess. The surf Is wonderful. lon't tell me about At . lantlc Beach. I don't want anything bet ter than Santa Koa& Island and a dip in the Gulf of Mexico, xou can't beat it, i'olly, say what you will. So we don't mind it being duli down here. The days are marvelous. It seems to me we have never had such keen clear ' mornings, such lovely noons and such mooncy nights as we have had lately, i was talking to a young ensign from Illi nois the other day and he spoke of our tropic moon. I reminded him that ne should have said semi-tropic, but he in sisted that the moon was too big- ana White and beautiful to be semi-anythlng. "There is something about your moon- carried on by the Rockefeller rouma- tlon. Miss Crowe 11 has. lots of friends here who are very much Interested 'n new of her, and I know you would do, too. She started her work in .Florida, and after going to New York, became executive secretary of the Rockefeller clinic and was later sent to France as associate director. Miss Crowell was in the church In Paris which was wrecked by the German monster gun which bombarded Paris Good Friday, 1918, but-was entirely un hurt. lon t you know she will have some exciting experiences to tell us when she gets back home? - X have just been talking to the most interesting girl Janet Allen. Ton may remember her lovely voice, a full, sweet, sympathetic contralto. She still sings in the churches of Richmond, Vs., where light down here," he said, "that goes toJ Bhs naa been making her home for trie neaa tno, rouy, tnis isn i a romance, though it sounds like . one) It Is your magnolias, and young pink Mexican vine 1 saw so much of last summer laat's the darndest .prettiest vine I ever saw. (.Those are his words, not mine) It sort of gets you. Why, I could sit -on .he gallery of the Country club and look across the bay and bathe in the moon light and make a darned fool of myselt over any girl." I had a mind to tell him that Nature had spared him that trouble. But that is rather a cheap bit of persiflage, so . instead I told him ho was a dear and that I was not so bad looking, even in tho daytime. And let it go at that. But It is the truth, Polly, about the moon. It does sort of go to your head, don't you know. We are having gorgeous nights - and . tranquil days, no doubt about the one or ' tne other. I sometimes wish It were a bit less tranquil, but there are still a lot of nice men left, and I understand they are . going to keep them here in definitely, which is best of alL I met a girl from Grand Rapids not long ago, and she said that she . had - visited in many towns, but never one like this. "You don't have to have parties "to coax the men," she said. "Why, there r.re so many of them . down here; they - simply eat out of your hands. They are in captivity and like ' it. Up where I came from there are so few men we used to sit out on the piazza am. hold hands .with each other." There are lota of men here, and some . very Interesting girls, and some charm ing married women, all of whom have '. added, much to tne glory of the nations. . No doubt you have heard about the coming marriage of Margaret Michie ro Invid Wells ol New York, they are both bq well known. You will remem ber when she visited here with her ' mother as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. t W. S. Keyser, at The Moorings. There !was a great deal of very sincere regret at the death of her father. General R. 1. Michie,. in France last June. The wed rting is to take place at Norwalk, Conn., . the summer home of the Keyser's, the . latter part of June. I have heard another interesting bit of newt: about somebody you know, and whom you may possibly meet in New York later In the summer. You recall Elizabeth Crowell. She is expected home in the late summer from France, where f.he is associate director of the anti tuberculosis work in Italy, which being some time. But she is guess what the only girl In the whole south, who is the manager of a moving picture bouse. And she is the best ever. Her uncle, Mr. Jake Wells, has a chain of theatres and when Janet went from . here to Jynchburg she had Intended to play the big organ in the theatre, but she found tnis too much for her, and so when she found her uncle wanted some one to manage a picture house, she said: "Why not I?" When she told roe about it. she said: "My rude is not tn kiiid of person who thirtUs a girl can't i ttings because tby have never beei done before by a girl. And so wlmi I proposed to man age his theatre, it seemed to strike nim as a very good idea. I . liked It from the first. ' It was It-nny, too, that I shouM have, for I hd always had my music aal been a sort of housekeeping person. But I had never . done any clerical kind or work-, or snyth.ng that required greit executive ability. But I gained a lot of experience in Lynchburg, and so when my brother. Gale, who had been managing' the Odeon in Richmond, enlisted in the .navy, i steiped into his shoes. Between the time I left Iynchburg and the' time I went to Richmond. I spent a delightful month in New York. Then I took up the duties an manager of the Odeon, which if I had the naming of it, should be called The Ladles Theatre. It is right in the shop ping district and the women are crazy about it. There is a big department store across the street, and the girls bring their sandwiches and have lunch and pictures Pt the same time. "I like the work immensely, but I have not given up my music by any means. For of course that was my first love." I think Janet is a wonder, and she has gained a very "distinctive style, which is most attractive.: ' I think it is awfully nice' to get out of the beaten track- and . do something that -other people don't do, and do It better than ahe men, don't you? Janet Allen, would laugh about that, for she Is very modest about her work, out . thay say that she is a wonder when it- comes to getting results. I wonder if in your reading for I -now vou mtr.l still read a lot, even in bur. New York, you were always such a bookworm ou come across , stories by Nellie Cravey Gillmore? You must have seen so. many of her stories lately listed In the magazines. "The 'Pick-Up". In a current issue of Breezy Stories, is by Mrs. Gillmore. and ; I see from advance notices that they are to nse another story of hers. "Murder Will Out." Youngs Magazine has two stories of Mrs. Gill more's scheduled for early issues "In Transit" and "Till Death Do Us Part." The Parisienne is to use "Her Ox and His," "Lo Chasseur and other short sketches, so I "see In the advance .no tices sent out, and Ten Story Book will Boon use "The Best Laid Plans." i have also seen short stories recently by Mrs. Gillmore In the Chicago News, the Herald and McClure's Syntdcate. . ' Mrs. GUImoer's work" has attracted a good deal of attention, and one of her stories was recently listed by O'Brien as one of the best short stories by an American writer. But I need not tell you all this, for no doubt you keep up with the current mag azines, as you always did. Another bright Pensacola gtn you wiu remember Is Velma Maura. Hhe is now in Tallahassee, where she has a clerical position In the- house of representatives, during the legislature. Velma had ben on the staff of The Journal, before going over to Tallahassee. She was called home in the early part of last winter by the Illness of her mother. At the time she was on the Baltimore Sun. She Is certainly one of the cleverest newspaper women in the South. ; Helen Maura and her two children, Helen and John, are here, visiting Mrs. Joseph Maura, Velma's mother, and tho mother of Helen's husband, Frank Maura. Frank is quite 111 in the hospital at Fort McPherson. He was taken in while In France, first with flue, which later de veloped into pneumonia. He is muph better now, but he had a hard seige. You know he is a major, it seems strange when you think of it.. He Is stilt quite a young, man, and is a veteran in the service. Three weeks after his graduation he received his appointment as assistant army surgeon, and was sent to the Philippines. During this war he served in France. His army record has been very distinguished. Little Billy Robards is here visiting Jiis grandmother. His mother was Ethel Maura, before her marriage to Captain Frank F; Robards, who lost his life m the service of his country while at Haytl, during the last insurrection there. His death came Just three weeks before he would have been given the rank of ma jor. Mrs. Robards holds a government position In Washington. -Her small son has been attending school in Baltimore. He ,. will spend : the summer with his grandmother hf" He is a bright, fear lees little chap, ana revers the memory of his brave father, whose memory the government signally honored at the time ot his death. - - Mrs. William Fisher. Sr.. Is In Wash fngtonwhere she Is visiting Mrs. Lula A. Fierce. Later she will go on to Phila delphia, to be the guest of .her uaughter, Mrs. W. C. Mason. Pensacola people are very proud of the honors t'nat have come to Mrs. Fisher's son, William Fisher, who is now In Paris. He is one of tho attorneys retained by the war department for the liquidation commission, and has joined that commission In Europe- to work In connection with the claims that have arisen among the entente nations during-the war. The United States has important claims to settle, on which tho liquidation commission will meet the rep- . v WVwlif . Ifc--V S SSSk Mi V ' S L: - m ' M J f a i I I . ' ! M-"3 3fl ' i 41.

Perhaps you will meet Emily Lamont. I know she is going to stop over a few days in New Yorlt as the guest of Miss Bert Murphy. Miss Murphy left Pensacola for New York Intending to Go war work, but the signing Of the tice decided her to remain on this side, and she has gone into business for her selflumber and real estate. You know, while here, she did some business in both, and was very successful. These Pen sacola girls know how to make their way In the Big City, it would seem, from the news, we hear from them. Emily Lamont Is going on to Boston to! visir hr ainters-' Elish and Jean. Elish is at the New England Conservatory of Music, where she is studying piano, and Jean is Just keeping her company. Emily will stop on the way . north with some triends in Jacksonville. She will return to Pensacola about the first of July. Lmlly Lamont has helped a lot in the vanou drives, particularly in the Emer Fency Relief work. One of the men wh worked with her said, "Do you know that girl has the mind of a man." He thought he was paying her a compliment but I thought he was complimenting the man. Mrs. J. M. Muldon left Saturday for Long Island, where . she will visit Mrs. Adam C. Sumner, at Garden Cliy.

We Just call her "Pokie" down here, because she's such -a dear and everybody loves her. - There aren't any really big parties to tell you about. There was a charming small party at the Country Club, at which Ensign Joe Collins, U. S. N., and Ens'gn Patten, U. S. N., of the Pensa cola Naval Air station, entertained cn Wednesday evening at the r Country Club, their guests being Mr. and Mrs. Ellis Knowles, Mr. and Mrs. Wllmer Hay ward, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hilton-Green, Jeanie Knowles, Jane Dunham, Ella Vaughn Patterson, and Ensigns Fay, MeGowan and Dry.

Tour hair will be soft glossy and beautiful In Just a few moments a delightful surprise awaits everyone who tries this There was never a time In all the historv of the world when it was so necessary that each one of us should fully realize the personal responsibility which rests upon us. in family life, in the business realm and in the work of the nation. it is no longer a universe in which each person may go his or her own way. living one's life according to one's inclinatioa. The hour has struck when each man and woman and child must know that he and she have a distinct duty to perform, a j distinct place to fill. J Old Duties for New. Personal responsibility is "the keynote of the hour. Yet here is one of the strange contradictions. Many persons in taking over the new responsibilities are letting go of t:e old ones. And many are assuming that certain responsibilities are theirs which are not theirs at all an! are allowing the old obligations to go by the board, and yet these former responsi bilities must be shouldered by eoitte one. It is incidental to all vrrs, of course, that the old order of living should be upset. But it is not true that all of us are called to give up the old duties and take up new and unfamiliar ones. And when we do this we want to be ery sure that it is our work and that we are called to do it, and that in the doing we are not neglecting something of greater importance something, perhaps, that ws do not like to do. something that is very humdrum and ordinary but vitaliy necessary. A mh.n who has spent five months at the front, in writing home, recently said that there are 'many men and women vr in France and England who should be on , thi8 Bide of the Atlantic. He said that these men and women had enlisted in the ranks of the non-combatants and had J rnn, oversea with high ideals to help their country, but that they had gone without training for any special thing and without any real idea of what they want ed to do or could do; they were there , with t". desire for service, but what that .service was they did not know I In other words, they had left perfectly good jobs at home, jobs that they had been trained in, and some of them had left homes of luxury where - they had never done any kind of a job in their lives and had gone across the ocean. They wanted to be of value but they did not know how to serve. Now that is just what we all must know if we are going to be of help in any way we must know how to serve. -It is utterly useless to give up the Job you know how to do to undertake some thing you know nothing about. , Wften a girl enlists for work in the Red Cross nursing corps, for instance, she s examined, she is given a special course of training, she la fitted for her work before she is sent abroad. And it should be, so in all branches jot service where the girl Is to he of any uetp. It is useless for her to give up something that she is doing and doing well to take up a task of which she knows nothing. Whatever she wishes to undertake she should fit herself for in every possible way. The girl who enters upon any work should do so with the realization that it 13 or great Importance; that if she- fails others will fail, for she is a cog in a great machine. There is an old saying which runs something like this: For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want Of a shoe the horse was kst; for want of a horse the rider was lost; for want of a rider Ihe Dattie was lost: for want of a bntti th kingdom was lost, and" all for the want of a horseshoe nail. Cog lif a Machine. And so the girl at home working faith fully need not think that because her 3 not a very important Job eiie is 0: special account in the sum of th!: ihe may be the nail that saves the d; he may be the very cog upon which ther cogs rest. "Whatsoever yourjianda find to flo. it with all your might." There have I nany new mottoes devised for our spiration, but none that equals that T is the day when work of the r.f counts. i ' This Is the day when labor is entfc: ed. See then that your work is c witn a keen realization of your per responsibility irits being done Jus: well as you know how to do It. Notice to Public .The partnership corporation known as the H. W.
