The next day the newspapers published long stories of the meet ing. giving a commendatory report of Everett's address. But in most cases the newspaper accounts ended with the simple state ment: "The President also spoke." Americans have little noted nor long remembered what Everett said there. His ''brilliant" speech has long since been forgotten, but it is already clear that the world will never forget what Lin coln did there. His less than three hundred wofds have become known as one of the world's greatest speeches. Between his opening statement that "our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal," and his closing plea that "this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of free dom: and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth," he asked his audience to pledge themselves to a new dedication which would demonstrate that ''these dead shall not have died in vain." He etched indelibly upon world history and literature as clear, as lucid, as understanding a statement of what Americans have lived and died for, as has ever been uttered. Back of Lincoln's speech, and his warrant for it, was nearly a Century of history which tried men's souls and cost the lives of many thousands. In the face of the perils that now confront America, Lincoln's earnest plea persistently rings in our ears. "The President also spoke." And he Is still shaking. MRS. MARY E.

McChw, chief of the di vision of aid for the aged, has sued a letter concerning the law which went into effect Jan. 1, 1941, which authorizes to pay a maximum of $40 per month to needy aged persons who have passed their 65tit birthday, and who meet all other legal requirements of eligibility. He points out that' |t is ^mistaken, idea that all persons who have passed their 65th birthday, and are entitled to aid, are to receive $40 per month. The aid, he states, based on need now, just the same as it was when it first became a law in 19 36. Mr. McCaw says that It is impossible both financially and legally to pay recipients of aid for the aged $40 maximum awards. He goes on to state that Vithout any increase in the number of persona on the aid for the aged rolls a flat $40 per months to each recipient during the present biennium would cost the state and federal govern ment, $65,000,000 each, or almost twice as much as the cost of the program during the last biennium. It is not intended to indicate, he says, that there will be no increase in awards during the present bien nium. There will be many increag* es, but they will be based upon in vestigations Into the personal needv of individuals, and states that be tween 10 and 15 percent of all re cipients will receive increase in the awards as the result of the nev law. Mr. McCaw emphasizes the point that the principle known as the "needs,*" is the basis for aid for the aged awards, now, just the same ae has been since the law went inte effect.

ARMY John Howard Broedel of Bristol township and Russell Robert Mc Cabe, (volunteer), Glouster routes left Tuesday in the third quota, a# 03 o'clock for Fort Hayes wher0 they received a physical examina tion and were inducted into military service for one year.
