Hindenburg is now claiming that

So eager to do what she can for
American soldiers that she will pay-
all her own expenses with money
earned by singing at concerts, Miss
Margaret Wilson, daughter of Presi-
dent Wilson, is singing, under the
auspices of the Young Men’s Chris-
tian Association, for the men in
khaki in camps as for west as Colo-
rado, and as far south as Texas.
How many people, ss they whirl
along the highway in their high-
powered motor cars, ever stop to
think of the opportunities for mak-
ing the world brighter and sweeter
by their having lived in it. Tbev
are losing when they neglect to stop
once in a while and in a friendly
sort o’ way ask the pedestrian to
“have a lift” as their forefathers did
in the old days when they drove the
oxen, and later the mule or horse
teams along these same highways?
GETTING ACQUAINT El)
One good that is to result from the
war is found in the’ -fact that .the
American people, are getting acquaint-
ed with each other. This is notably
true as relates to the city people and
the coui^ry people. Heretofore these
two great classes have known very
little of what the other was doing end
how it lived. This was more particu-
larly'true of the women than of tbr
men. The men have always mingled
more or less in their business dealings
and know each othgr, but with the
women it has been different. The so-
cial activities and other work of the
women of the city have been entirely
detached*-from the like activities of
the women who live in the rural .dis-
tricts, and for this reason they have
not known ea£h other.
'But the war is working a great
arm benericient change in the social
status of the country. The city wo-
men are doing Red Cross wc rk and
the women in the smaller towns nno
communities are doing Red Cross
voi k. This has , established contact
ic the common cause and there ha^
been mutual surprise and gratif k-a
ticn. Each has found the Qther a
band of worthy sisters and the inter,
mingling is proving a delight to all.
The city -women have found that
their sisters in the country are a
band.of true, womanly women with
aspirations ami ideals as high a.- theit
own, and the country women havi
found that the city women ar * not al!
frivolous and Useless ornaments i-r
ti e great work-a-day world.
This getting acquainted is Koun<! to
result in lasting good *•> aU the land.
We need to know each otn« r b<•;;«*.
and to co-operate more .closelc in a;
the affairs of life.'* It v\l eliminate
misunderstandings that have wrought
evil ami will Kelp us to wiauitain a
closer brotherhood and approa h mor-
rapidly the * high ideals of Christian
