sealed a tin box containing his pipe,
a can of P. A. and some cigarettes.
The box will.stay sealed until he pays
for his $50 bond in "smokes.''
The box is labeled, "Not to be

"I'll probably succumb several times

won't take me in the army and this is

EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO END
LOAN CAMPAIGN WITH
President Wilson named Oct. 24 as
"Liberty Day" in a recent proclama-
tion. That day will be observed
throughout the country in a final ef-
fort to drive the second Liberty loan
issue to its goal.
Efforts will be made in every ham-
let and metropolis 'to end the loan
campaign in a successful clean-sweep
of the entire nation.
The text of the President's procla-
mation follows in part:
"The second Liberty loan gives the
people of the United States an op-
portunity to lend their funds to their
government to sustain their country
at war. The might of the United States
is being mobilized and organized to
strike a mortal blow at autocracy in
defense of outraged American rights
and of the cause of liberty. Billions'
of dollars are required to arm, feed,
and clothe the brave men who are
going forth to fight our country's bat-
tles and to assist the nations with
"The people responded nobly to the
call of the first Liberty loan with an
oversubscription of more than 50 per
cent. Let the response to be second
loan be even greater, and let the
amount be so large that it will serve
as an assurance of unequaled support
to hearten the men who are to face
the tire of battle for us. Let the re-
sult be so impressive and emphatic
that it will echo throughout the em-
pire of our enemy as an index of what
America intends to do to bring this
war to a victorious conclusion.

Plans for "Liberty Day" exercises
to be held at the University have not
yet been announced.

AT THE WHITNEY
"Flora Belle," queen of the season's
musical offerings, will be the attrac-
tion at the Whitney theater Saturday,
Oct. 20, with a cast of 50 people. The
producer sends the attraction here
with an especially brilliant cast and
a record of six months at the Casino
theater, New York.
Charming music, bright lines, an
original book, and lively dancing
make this an unusually attractive pro-
The scenes of the play take place
in Russia. A princess, without her
husband's knowi dge, has been a cab-
aret singer, but believing that a princ-
ess should be cold and dignified, she
forgets her old ways and almost loses
her husband. She returns to cabaret
life for just one night and is discov-
ered there by her husband, who has
been driven away from home by her
coldness, and as usual everthing ends
As for music, there is the dreamy
waltz that rivals in its swing the fa-
mous "Merry Widow." Then there is
a march that charms fully as greatly,
and numerous other songs, duets and
conserted numbers, that are equally
AT THE MAJESTIC
The Majestic is offering an unusual-
ly attractive program for the latter
half of this week, beginning today.
Foley and Massimo offer thrilling
acrobatic stunts and instrumental"
work and dancing as well in their act;
Jessie Morris and Jack Beasley give
us something really original in "Their
Own Ideas of Fun"; and the famous
"Kill Kare Kouple," John and Winnie
Henning, who were a tremendous
vogue in the east, are sure to please,
with their attractive mannerisms, and
"The Sales Lady and the Porter" is
a delightful little vaudeville vehicle
presented by Billy Clark and Ethel
Chappelle and it is pretty sure to
please. However, the main feature of
the program, "The School Master," is
offered by Hendrix and Belle Isle.
Three bonnie little girls, and three
irrepressible boyish looking young-
sters., will have the time of their lives
with the lovable old schoolmaster.
The usual Saturday matinee at the
Majestic will be dispensed with this
week, on account of the M. A. C. game.
