"What for? Souse! What else?"
snapped the Pipsisewah. "1 came to
get souse off your ears, and souoe 1
will have. You can't fool me this
time "
"Oh, can't I?" thought Cncle Wiggily.
"Just wait and see." But he didn't say
this out loud. What he did say out
loud was this:
"Why, my dear I'ipslsewah! Look
at thut b hole In your coat. Let me
sew it up for you! I sewed up a hole
In my own coat and I'll sew one in
yours. Then we can talk about souse."
And before the Plpsisewah wuld stop
him L'ricle Wiggily began to sew up
the open end of the sleeve of the I'ip's
coat, it being very long the sleeve, 1
"Wait a minute!" cried the Plpsise
wah. "That Isn't a tear. That's a
hole where I stick my claw out to grab
you and get souse!
"Oh. it's a hole. I'm sure, and must
be sewed up," said Uncle Wiggily, aif
ne usea ine needle ana thread very rast,
and soon he had one sleeve sewed up.
Then he sewed up the other sleeve,
though the Pip as I call him for
short called to the bunny to stop.
"Oh. no, I must sew up the holes!"
said I'ncle Wiggily. And he did. He
sewed up both sleeves of the PipBise
wah's coat and the bad creature
couldn't stick out his paws to grab
Vncle Wiggily and bite souse off the
bunny's ears.
"There you are!" said TJncle WIgglly,
as he sewed the last stitch. "Both holes
nicely mended. I knew I could do It."
"Do It! Why, good gracious! Look
here!" cried the Plpi You've sewed
both my claws up!"
"I know I have!" laughed Uncle Wig
gily. "That's what I meant to do all
the time. Now you can't grab me and
I'll call a policeman dog in and have
him arrest you.
And the bunny did and Pip was
taken off to a fire engine house and his
coat sleeves weren't ripped open until
his claw nails had been cut off.
Declaring their school was over
crowded, that there was danger of fire,
that heaWng and lighting facilities were
Inadequate and their building was the
most obsolete one In the county, clti
tens of New riouth Memphis, Sixth
civil district, want a new school. In
a resolution baojilng the movement of
Miss Chart W'illiams, school superin
tendent. In her drive for $300,000, they
ask for a 146,000 to $50,000 building.
The meeting of the citizens was held
at the schoolhouse on Feb. 13 and the
resolution adopted handed to Miss
Williams Wednesday. The committee
appointed to draw up the resolution
were Krnest Adams, chairman; George
McSweyn, W. T. Holsgrafe, Gerald
Marshall, Edward Foster, John Baflew,
and have Just reported.
The committee found that with a
capacity of 120, the school was accom
modating U0 pupils, with about 60
others being "farmed" out to other
schools. They condemn the lack of fire
escapes from the second floor, stating
that In the event of fire, the children
there would "no doubt be burned to
death, as their only exit Is through a
pine stairway of very light structure."
Miss W'illiams will use this resolu
tion as another weapon In her battle
for the $300,000 bond issue for county
schools, which is aside from the city
board of education's drive for a $3,000.
000 bond Issue for city schools, Negro
schools in the county are also said to
be in a badly dilapidated state.

attraction. As a mailer or fact, me
advance sale for this engagement has
been heavier than for any similar at
traction In many years.
The operas selected for presentation
In Memphis have been well chosen, for
while they are all well known and have
been heard times without number In
the past, they are among the most pop
ular and tuneful in the large list of
operatic compositions.
No more tuneful score was ever
written by that sersatile composer,
Verdi, thaa that of "Rigoletto." which
will be given at the Lyric Thursday.
It Is filled with musical gems and is
to be presented in its complete form,
with Creatore conducting. In the cast
will be Lillian Gresham. Henrietta
Wakefield and Mvira Arani, Salvatore
Heiarettl, who will sing the part of the
duke, Giorgio I'ullltl In the title role,
Alfredo Valentl as fiparafuclle. Miss
Gresham, of course, will be the Gilda.
Others In Thursday's cast will Include
Amelia Lamanl, Mario Scala, Giuseppe
Monti and Carlo Paggl.
The company includes a large chorus
and an orchestra of 35 pieces.
For Friday night Creatore will pre
sent "Alda," with Louise Darclee, Ri
cardo Martin, Jeanne Gordon and Greek
Kvans in the four principal roles.
"Lucia" will be sing at the Saturday
matinee and "I- -,-llacct" and "Cav

New Lyric.
A week of superfilm photoplay enter
tainment Is in store for Memphis theater-goers
as the result of successful ef
forts made by the management of the
New Lyric theater In' booking "The
Heart of Humanity" for the Madison
avenue playhouse. The attraction will
be given Its first public presentation
here Sunday afternoon with daily mati
nees throughout the week. Pretty Doro
thy Phillips has been cast In the lead
ing role and Is supported by a large
cast of excellence. The dominating
theme of "Hearts of Humanity" is the
poble sacrifice of a little wife who
leaves the quiet of her own home to go
to war-ridden Baieium and France as
a Red Cross nurse. Her capture by the
uermans, mere to find Krlc von Strang,
her former sweetheart, a Prussian offi
cer, her sacrifice and later her decora
tion by the French government make
"The Heart of Humanity" a Picture of
vital Interest and gripping romance.
Paraphrasing, some are born In
vaudeville, some acquire vaudeville and
some have vaudeville thrust upon them.
To the latter classification belong the
Misses Campbell Honey and Georgia
two sweet sisters who are delighting
Orpheumltes this week. In the begin
ning, the Misses Campbell were two
Washington society girls, reared in the
lap of luxury, so to speak; girls whose
every wish was fulfilled so far as the
power of money was concerned. In the
capital they were among the most pop
ular of the younger set because of their
charming personality and accomplish
ments. Their friends delighted in be
ing entertained by them. Their home
was a center where Washington's best
were went to gather. And then the great
tragedy came. The Campbell fortune
was swept away and the Misses Camp
bell were faced with the reality of hav
ing to earn their own living.

afternoon for the remainder of tlte
week. In the plcturlzatlon of Miss Al
