U. D. C. DEPARTMERT
(Continued from page ten) AN ECHO FROM FLAG DAY. By Lilita Lever Younge. One of the most delightful parties B given recently at the Soldiers' Home. on picturesque Bayou St. John, New bi Orleans, La., was that planned by the Junior Confederate Memorial Associ- si ation, for the amusement of the Gray men of the 60's, the evening of whose lý lives is being passed amid the pleas- S ant surroundings provided by grate- k ful hearts for their declining years. This entertainment has become an an nual institution, and was originated by Mrs. Hickey Friedrichs, the devot ed and efficient president of the Jun- ( iors, the first of the series having taken place more than ten years ago. On the present occasion, graceful little tots as dancers, sweet-voiced singers, and well known musical ar tists, contributed to a program of un usual merit, each number of which - elicited a veritable storm of applause from the gray-clad audience. Time I and again did the far-famed "Rebel Yell" ring out across the smooth green lawns, as some memory-haunt ing melody bore the spirit of the t listener back to the days of strife and prowess on the field of honor old Southern airs that fire the blood and stir the pulses of those war scarred veterans as no other music can! A beautiful and touching sight indeed-Youth and Age, wee tot and white-haired warrior, grouped togeth er beneath the well-loved flags in the Home's spacious library, through i the open windows of which the trail- , ing ivy and white head-stones of] peaceful graves in a near-by ceme tery may be glimpsed. Apropos of these same graves, the writer recalls once having remarked to an aged in anate, who has since joined his wait ing comrades in the Great Beyond, the advisability of steps being taken by the U. D. C. to shut out this view with a higher wall covered entirely with ever-green creepers, mingled, in the summertime, with gaily tinted morning-glories, and of being both surprised and amused when the Grey Warrior replied in alarm: "Whatever you do, dear Lady, please don't even suggest such a thing! Watching the funerals is one of the greatest pleasures we have!" Dear simple souls. Watching the funerals, pass, each biding the inev itable hour when Life's Sunset Gates ahall have swung open to admit an cther of the South's loved heroes to the shining ranks within. The following is the program so successfully rendered on Flag Day: Pupils of Miss Una Daly: Opening piano solo--Elsa Burck. Mexican dance-Miss Sybil Jackie Barker. Dance (Love's Lane)-Eunice Lu bitz.

ALEXANDRIA NOTES. Mother's Club. e Although we are on a vacation dur- w ing July and August, we have ac- 19 complished a little work. At our last TI meeting in June, the necessity of a M night matron at our union station F was strongly impressed on us. Be- Si ing aware that our Travelers' Aid C' Society's funds were only sufficient to pay two day matrons the Moth er's Club undertook to raise the money for a night matron. Last Tuesday, f' July 11th, I appointed a committee of R three besides myself, Mesdames Fred Brenner, A. Wettermark, J. C. Selser, to go before our honorable police jury s. to ask them for $500 towards the sal- i. ary per year of a night matron. In t response to our appeal an appropria- t tion of $42.00 per month was granted l to assist in defraying the expense of s employing a night matron. We are a more than gratified at our success. We are trying to keep cool these good old summer days and at the! same time we are not letting the 1 club go to sleep entirely. I am very anxious to work up a club house. IPlease tell us how to do lit? Among our members who are en joying a trip are: Mrs. Fred Benner and family expect to tour through the East as far as Atlantic City in their new "Packard" car. Mrs. M. Hirsch and family left for a trip by automobile for Galves ton, Texas. Hon. Geo. Bauer and family left during the week for California where they will spend three months. Many other members have left al ready and others are contemplating trips. MRS. H. J. LEVY, President Mothers' Club. By Mary Riddick Madison. Oh lovely wood! My land of dreams! Oh magic spot. .. to me it seems, Where quietly I steal away To muse alone a summer day; To feel the gentle charm of trees; To breath of scented shrubberies; And listen to the piping sound Of little voices of the ground. For Bites or Stings--Cover affected part with paste made by moistening baking soda, or bathe with a teaspoon of amonia in a cup of cold water, or put camphor on the spot. For Sunburn-Spread over with cold cream, vaseline or oil. Bind with cloth.
