BRAVE SONS OF FAR WEST
Boys' Sole Object In Going to War,
Like That of Others, I to
"Can the Kaiser."
MaJ. E. Alexander Powell, In Serlb-
ner's Magazine, says "it has been my
good fortune to have marched with
many armies, but none of them has
given me the thrill of pride which ruua
up my epiue when I Bee these loose
limbed, brown-faced, clear-eyed eons
of the far West go swinging by under
the slanting lines of steel.
"They are for the most part serious
looking, with a curious set expression
about them which makes you feel that,
though they realize the immense diffi
culty of the task for which they are
preparing, they intend to see it fin
ished, no matter how long it may
take. Just as their fathers carried the
frontier of civilization westward from
the Mississippi, bo these, their eons,
are going to push that eame frontier
from the Rhine.
"But that isn't the way that they
would put it. Should you ask them
what they are fighting for, they will
eny nothing about the liberty of small
peoples or about making the world
safe for democracy. They will assure
you that their sole object in going to
war is 'to can the kaiser.' Aud, upon
thinking it over, it seems to me that
their answer, though somewhat inele
gantly phrased, perhaps, expresses the
sentiments of all of us."

interesting theory developed by Isa
dore Berger, the English violinist, ae
cording to the Pittsburgh Gazette.
Music and color, he dec-lares, express
exactly the same emotions and feeb
lugs,- and therefore an opera or a
symphony may actually be turned into
color and seen. By understanding the
Interrelation of color and sound even
the deaf can learn to enjoy music
when expressed in color. Mr. Berger
says :
"Color Is -not to be an accompani
ment nor a mere light effect, but .a
clear, logical expression of music. The
synchronism must be perceived emo
tionally rather than scientifically. For
instance, red always expresses passion,
anger, temper or any intense feeling.
Yellow, the color of light, menns love
and happiness. Blue is the mystic
color. Modify the yellow of love with
the mystic blue and you have a "violet,
a pensive, sad emotion. All the othei
grades of emotion ore the result of
j the bleuding of passion, mystery and
love, or red, blue and yellow. They
are three primary colors and the three
primary emotions." ,
