The tremendous success of the ba

through thè medium of the Caledo-nian-Record
and the wonderful as
sistance she had from the hustling
niembei's of the two organizations,
made the bazaar one of the greatest
successes ever held in this section

: "" PRESS COMMENT
Senator Page Started Somiething
Senator Page certainly "started
something" when he called for a re
port on the method of awarding dec
orations to navy men for distinguish
ed service in the war. Incidentally,
the refusai of Admiral Sirris to ac-
cept this decoration has crystalized
the thing so it may lead to a very
ugly row unless SecretaryDaniels re
vises .his notions-and it scems quite
likely.that he will.
