A poem as lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the world's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
S And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
` A neat of robins in her hair;
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
If you want to build a road, let the people plant
ameorial trees along that road and your project is a
succes.-Charles Lathrop Pack.
Thus come closer to the Great Tree-Maker. Plant
memorial trees in honor of the men who gave their
lives to their country-in honor of the men who offered
their lives.-Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark.
Roads and trees for remembrance!
Victory highways in honor of America's fight
ing men In the great war!
Roadside planting of trees in memory of their
ladividual deeds !
It is a truism that the economic and moral
dber of any community is shown by the condition
of its highways. Give the community the right
klid of roads, schools, churches, factories and
baks and the other signs of advancement will
soon be in evidence.
Memorial roads! What more fitting monument
an we build in honor of our heroes? Permanent
reads dedicated to them! How can a community
better commemorate their achievements?
And all these memorial roads planned and built
: as parts of a great system of victory highways-
'ictory highways that food may move from farm
to city and manufactures back to the farm ! that
the way of the children to the schoolhouse may be
made easy; that the defense of America against
armed force may be certain.
Victory highways that not only serve the na
ion's needs but delight the people's eye-vic
tory highways beautified by roadside planting of
American trees and shrubs and flowers. No walls
land gates and arches with their suggestion of
o laethlng closed and set apart, but memorial
Strees and groves dand little parks and wayside
u amps for the American traveler and food trees
for the birds.
To Abraham Lincoln have probably more me
morials been erected than to any other man.
Which of all these memorials is most impressive
-most fitting? Consider now the Lincoln high
way as it is and as it is soon to be.
The Lincoln highway is an object lesson of
what is and what is to be in a memorial road.
More than 3,000 miles in length, it runs east and
West through the heart of America, with giant
north and south feeder highways, joining the At
lantie and the Pacific. It traverses 11 states.
fifteen millions have been expended on it in the
last five years. Already there are nearly 400
miles of concrete and brick and paving and more
than 1,000 miles of macadam. It'is in operation
from end to end. It carries an endless procession
y:"f Americans in their own automobiles. The
year round it is dotted with freight trucks.
At this very moment the federal government
has Under way on the Lincoln way across the
continent an exhitirinn train. It started from
Washington, and from (GTttysbnrg, Pa., the route
ý 8 is over the Lincoln way to Pittsburgh, Camden
ad Bulcyrus, 0.: Fort Wayne, Ind.; Chicago
8eghgts, Ill.: Clinton. Cedar rhapids and Marshall
town, Ia.; Omaha, Neb.; ('hevenne, Wyo.; Salt
:f- Lake City, Utah: Carson City and Ely, Nev.,
finally dropping down the Sieria Nevada to Sac
ramento, Cal., and then to San Francisco.
This train consists of 60 motor-vehicles of the
types employed, by the motor transport corps in
the conduct of the winning of the war. In addition,
accompanying this train are several other
branches of the United States army service, in
cluding representatives of the engineer corps,
with antiaircraft defense trucks and searchlights,
and certain specially detailed observers who will
make an intensive study and report to the war
department on road conditions.
The trip is being made for both military and
educational purposes, including: An extended
performance test of the several standardized
types of motorized army equipment used for
transportation of troops and cargo and for other
special military purposes; the war de!frtment's
contribution to good roads movement; demonstra
tion of the practicability of long-distance motor
post and commercial transportation and the need
for judicious,expenditude of federal governmental
appropriations in providing the necessary high
So much for the Lincoln highway as a means
of transi rtation-a transcontinental road link
ing the United States by states. Consider now
the Lincoln way as a beauty spot-and a me
morial, not only to the Great Emancipator, but to
the heroes who followed his example and won
the freedom of the world in the great war.
The roadside planting of the Lincoln way is in
charge of the General Federation of Women's
Clubs. This organization has a membei4ip of
2,500,000 members. It has a state federation in
every state in the Union. Mary K. Sherman,
chairman of the conservation department of the
general federation, has secured a comprehensive
planting plan for the way. This plan luhR beezi
worked out by Jens Jensen, a noted landscape
engineer of Chicago. In general it provides for
the planting of trees, shrubs and flowers i 4 c
nous to tie locality. For example, blue prints
have been made for the planting of the way
through the 180 miles of Illinois. These prints
give all necessary details-kinds of trees, shrubs
and flowers for each locality; suggestions for
grouping each. The clubs of the several states
through which the way passes will see to it that
the planting is done. Many clubs in other states
will plant memorial miles on the way and in
addition carry out the same plan in application
to Lincoln way feeders in their own states.
Features of thts roadside planting of the Lin
coln way by the general federation are memorial
trees in honor of individual heroes; groves, foun
tains, camping places along the road; fruit and
nut trees for the birds and a bird sanctuary from
cean to ocean.
For ten years America has been spending from
$200,000,000 to $300,000,000 a year for highway
construction and maintenance-without national
plan-without relation to the broad needs of the
country as a whole and with little co-ordination
of effort between states. After spending over
$2.000.000,000 in a decade, we are, broadly speak
ing, as far: from a proper connecting system of
radiating highways in the United States as ever.
The latest government figures show a total
highway mileage in the United States of 2.457,
334 and of this total, even after the tremendous
expenditures noted, but 12 per cent, or some 290,
000 miles, have received any attention whatever
and these improvements are scattered in 48 states,
in a loose and utterly ineffective way, over va
rious sections of our entire 2,500.000 miles.
Now the time for national action has arrived.
Thus the time is ripe for roads and trees for
remembrance. The United States is going to ex
pend $500,000,000 in the next few years on a na
tional highway system of interstate arterial
routes. It only remains to be seen what agency
of the federal government is to have charge of
the construction. If the department of agricul
ture and the state highway commissions do the
work, the government and the states will share
the expense, half and half. If a highway com
mission is established by congress to have
charge of the work the share of the states' will be
apportioned in order that states like Nevada,
Wyoming and Arizona shall not be too heavily
As to the feature of memorial trees, this is also
the chosen time. Public sentiment turns toward
the idea. Events all over the country forecast a
general inmeaorial planting.
The Anmrican Forestry association, of which
Charles Lathrop Pack is president, has issued a
call for memorial tree planting, It is registering
all memorial trees and giving certificates of reg
istration; also instructions for planting.
Rev. Dr. Francis E. Clark has called upon the
Christian Endeavor societies to plant memorial

"My boys made a wonderful reputation for this

boy scouts' slogan is, '(Once a scout always a
scout.' A plan that we are taking up is the
planting of trees as memorials for our heroes.
This is being done in some parts of Long Island
and should be done in all sections. After the
tree has been planted a small tablet should be
placed on it bearing the name of the man who
made the supreme sacrifice, and when and where

The poem by Joyce Kilmer, who gave his life

turies ago-and shaded by the Maryland tulip
poplar or the Engelmann spruce or any other of
our magnificent American trees. The glimpse of

There are two classes of people to
be met almost daily; the people who
live in the shadow and gloom, and
those who live on the sunny side of

sometimes called pessimists, some
times people of melancholy tempera

Wherever they go their charaeesiUst

their wounds to others. They are so
busy looking down for pitfalls and

There wias a wonderful mion that
night and Cara recovered suilii'iiently
to he a vision by its light.
"I shan't go dlown to dinner," she an
nounced from her comfortable chair.
"Sam is bringing me a glass of wine
I still feel the shock of my accident."
"Her what?" whispered Peggy to
"Don't you really think it was?" he
asked her in return.
"Neither do you!" she laughed enig
"I guess Sam is alone In his delusion
-I only wish she'd tried it on me !"
When they had all gone down to din

you're flirting like the devil with
"I'm not flirting, Dick-I may marry
him, but I'm not sure yet."
"Well, you're a pretty little actress,
and I wish you joy !" snapped hei- irate
host as he turned and stamped off
down the deck.
Cara was furious, but at that very
moment she was more Interested in
Duval than she had ever been before.
Later she captured Sam, and togeth
er they watched the reflection of the
moon on the water. When Peggy and
Dural passed them Cara did not ap
pear to notice them, but Sam was su
"You are adorable. Sam," cooed his
companion softly. "I never knew any
one could say such beautiful things."
Peggy giggled audibly, and Sam
heard the giggle. But when they were
out of earsiot she stopped laughing
and spoke to Duval abruptly.
"What does Cara think she's doing?"
"Trying to make you and me jeal
ous," lie assured her. "She'll come
home if we leave her alone. I suppose,
but all the same It's darnned unpleas

"Why not?" suggested Duval, more
hopefully than before.
"I'm not clever enough to beat her

doesn't care anything about me or he
wouldn't act like this."
"He couldn't help himself-I know

dodge? 'Why not?' said the caterpil
lar. 'Why not?' Come on, Peggy, I'll

he redoubled his efforts and reached
the lifeboat before Peggy 01an1(1 helped
her on board. In silence they returned
to the yacht. Hie wondered if she was
tired after her long swim-if she
would like-what nonsense! Of course
shedwouldn't like anything to do with
him. Some one else helped her out of
the boat and he followed slowly and
went straight to his own room.
"What a fool I am anyway---all my
own fault, too !" Sam shivered with
cold and changed his wet clothes for
some flannel trousers and a warm
"Gosh, but I'm cold! I wonder if
I've g9t a chill-hope I won't be sick
here-nobody care if I was either.
Perfectly good vacation wasted fooling
around with a lot of girls who like to
jump overboard and who don't care a
rap whether I live or die !"
"Come in!" he roared, not moving
from the warmth of the electric heater.
"Please come here a minute, Sam;
I can't come in."
He jumped to his feet instantly and
flung the door wide. Peggy, dressed in
a long furry robe, was holding a cup of
some steaming fluid.
"Please drink It, Sam; I've been so
worried about your taking cold."
Obediently he drained the scalding
mixture with his eyes on her face.
"Wonderful!" he exulted, but he
wasn't thinking about the contents of
the cup at all. Peggy took the empty
cup and started down the hall, but he
caught her sleeve.
"You can't go till you tell me some
of the things I want to know," he told
her, holding tightly to her arm.
"That's not fair, Sam Russell! A
man who is crazy about one girl has no
right to tell another one what she can
and cannot do 1"
"I'm not crazy about another girl! I
may have been a darned fool once, but
I'm wiser now, and I'll never let you go
again, if I can help it! Can't you ever
forgive me, Peggy? I love you so."
The empty cup fell out of Peggy's
hands and broke on the floor behind
them, but they never even picked up
the pieces. After some time Sam asked:
"Will you take a dare from me,
"Marry me the day we land in New

-I couldn't do it in such a hurry."
"When, then, darling?"
