Two splendid orchestras, one being Rapp of New Haven and the other Banjo "Wallace of New York, will furnish continuous dance music for the occasion, until the wee sma' hours of the morning.

"Walter Allen, president of the club, Is chairman of the committee in rharge assisted by several sub-committees who are looking after the decorations and program of dances. This affair promises to be one of the most brilliant of the season and will be largely attended. President Wilson's war message was delivered before the joint session of Congress on the night of April 2, 1917. It contained the following dramatic utterances: I have called the Congress into ex traordinary session because there are serious, very serious choices of policy to be made immediately, which it was neither right nor constitutionally per missible that I should assume the re sponsibility of making. With a profound sense of the solemn and even tragical character of the step I am taking and of the grave resoonsihilit itis which it invnlvps lint ! in unhesitating" nhodipuro t tn-h a f T deem my constitutional duty, I ad vise that Congress declare the recent course df the Imperial German gov ernment to be in fact nothing less than war against the government and people of the Stated States; that it formally accepts the status of belli gerents which has thus been thrust upon it and that it take immediate steps not only to put the country in a more thorough state of defense, but also to exert all its power and em ploy all its resources to bring the government of the German Empire to terms and end the war. The world must be made safe for democracy. Its pace must be planted upon the trusted foundations of poli tical liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be sat isfied when those rights have been as secure as the faith and freedom of the nations can make them. It will be all the easier for us to conduct ourselves as belligerents in a high spirit of right and fairness be cause we act without animus, not in enmity towards a people or with de sire to bring any injury or disadvan tage upon them, but only in armed opposition to an irresponsible gov ernment which has thrown aside all consideration of humanity and of right and is running amuck. To such a task we can dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when nation is privileged to spend her blood and her money for the prln ciples that gave her birth and happi ness and the peace which she has treasured. God helping her, she can do no other. every Thursday morning to ! 0f Mrs. E. C.

P. Corley, Edmund, S. C. Ability to stand the strain of work is the privilege of the strong and healthy, but now our hearts ache for the weak and sickly women struggling with their daily rounds of household duties, with backaches, headaches, nervousness and almost every movement brings a new pain. Why will not the mass of letters from women all over this country, which we have been publishing, convince such women that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound will help them just as surely as it did Mrs. Corley ?

Colonel Fauntleroy's lecture here will be given under the auspices of the European Relief Council, of which Herbert Hoover is chairman, and whose ministrations in stricken Pol and have salvaged the lives of mil lions of th country's undernourished children. The famine situation in Poland, the Colonel said yesterday, is more acute than in moat of the other war ravaged countries in Cen tral and Eastern Europe because the retiring Belsheviks last summer laid waste' the fields that had been de mended upon for the winter's food supply, drove off the cattle and horses of the peasants and dismantled manufacturing plants as they withdrew. Col. Fauntleroy came to the United 9tates on leave of absence from the Polish Army last Fall after the clutch of winter had made it impossible f ti the Lenine ttroops to renew the offens ive against the beleaguered country. During the winter he has lectured in moat of the principle cities of this country. "I am returning to Poland In the near future to be on hand when the spring campaign opens," the Colonel said last nighrt. "Although there have been repeated rumors that peace between Poland and Russia is about o be concluded there are evi dences that the Polish Army will be called upon aigain this year to stand as the bulwark against Bolshevik en croachments upon Europe. It is not improbable that there will be more fighting." FACE DISFIGURED CUTICURA HEALS rere. Rest Terribly Upset "My trouble commenced on the side of my face in little blisters with a red surface.

NEWTON. AUTHOR LECTURER, TO SPEAK AT TOTTED FORUM The American Legion basketball team came back into its own Thursday night and walloped the Lakes for the second time this season. This time the game wasn't even close, the score being 37 to 17. A good crowd was on hand, but if they expected a real battle to the finish they were disap pointed. However, there was some excitement, and it was gratifying to see the legion come back, for the team was more or less weakened by the withdrawal of Flood, following his injuries in the high school fire.

An intensive campaign of publicity to convince the people of the south of Ireland that it would be to their advantage to accept the new Home Rule act will be launched shortly. Opposition to the measure, centering in the south, is believed in official circles to be due largely to ignorance of the powers conferred by i'ts provis ions. Sir Hamar Greenwood, the Chief Secretary, is said to be de termined that everyone, the length and breaTth of the island shall have ful opportunity to study the law. Thousands of copies of the act have been printed for gratuitous circulation T.he country will be flooded with these circulars accompanied by a memor andum explaining !the effect of the measure. Particular efforts will be made to see that the publicity reaches persons in position to influ ence public opinion. Copies will be mailed to school teachers, priests and others prominent in community life. Bt is planned to make the campaign an effective weapon directly aimed at the Sinn Fein movement. No important section of Irish opin ion has shown any willingness thus far to regard the act as even a basis for peace negotiations with the Brit ish officials. All Southern parties object to par tition and, while . willing to accord separate treatment to Northeast Ul ster, object to a separate and equal parliament for that section. The Northeast Ulster men are equally de termined itt their position and declare they will oppose such extension of the powers of Southern Ireland as would enable it to set up a tariff against either England or . Ulster. The publicity campaign is expected by the British authorities to clear up many of the sectional differences by giving the people a tnorougn explan ation of the exact powers and re quirements for which the act pro vides.
