Our hearts have been saddened by news of the sudrl en death of Mr. H.

During th ei r many years in charge of Mt Vernon hall, Mr. and Mrs. VanMidd lesworth, by their unfailing kindn ess endear ed themselves to us all , and no one who knew Mr. Van, as hi s friend s loved to cal l him, will forget hi s smile of welcom t! or hi s prid e in his we ll kept lawn. H e was a "gentleman of the old school," genia l, kindly, happy in hi s love of his work and of hi s f ri ends. Such lives are a b enedicti on . To Mrs. and Miss VanMidd lesworth th e ir many fr ie nd s in Peru d exten their d eepest sympathy and love.

Her masterly play: " He and She," formulates th e prob lem raised when thi s new woman appears in a man's world and asks why she may nol. share his God-given right to go to the limit of his po wer. The play presents three angles from which a modern wo man may view her s ituation. Ruth (Della Weatherhogg) is engaged; but as her work grows more absorbingly 1interesting, marri age with convenl tionally-minded Keith looks terril fving, cramped and narrow. Lova. ble Daisy (Pearl Bath) typifies the woman with a busi ness career thrust upon her, who finds her happiness in being ''the nicest thing in the world" to Ke ith. after Ruth has refused to g ive up her work f or him . . Ann, (Bessie Lauman, } t he central figure, is thE: brilliant, a mbiti ous wo man, who, marri ed to generous-minded Tom Herford, works happi ly on beside him in their sculptor's studio, ti ll confronted with th e need of choosing between fame and her rlau ghter's safety and happiness. The three men are eq ua lly significant. Dr. Remi ngton (Peter SnydP.r) t ypifies the older generation, whose simple rul e of life for womPn is pretty nearly th e late Kai ser' s : cooking, church and children.

Our Cultured Audience. The best, t he very best yet-we must admit it. Peru has always as a rule been blessed with a cultured class of students, yet it seemed that some would forget. But thi~ summer our students do not f orget. At t he Southwick recital last Friday ni g ht, an a lmost perfect audi ence gave the strictes t attention thr uou t that splendid prog ra m, and at its elose cheered and cheered f or j ust one more treat. Tl.e Right of Suffrage. There id no de mocracy whose constit uency is "half slave and ha lf free." Suff rage is the guara nt ee t hat governme nt · ' of the people, by the people a nd for the people sha ll not peri sh from the earth." It has taken a long t :me to impress tlti s cardinal principal to a point where it can be recog nized as hav ing actual and practical appli cation. Really there is no arg umen t against it. On ly in the selfishness of the traditional and pol itica l past does one fi nd the answer as to how men have assumed and pe r petuated the guardianship of the ball ot . There seems little recognition of the fa ct that while men were "hunting, fishing, and sitting about," the women of the race were t eaching th ~:! art of industry , and were prE'ser vtng unto poste rity thru the ir la bor. sacrifice and devotion, the acq ui siti-ons of last ing worth. But a new day is at hand. In the United States of America the right of suffrage f or women is all but a fact. The statesman hails the day; only the politician looks askance. Governor Samuel MeKel vie is proceeding with state;;ma nlike vision in his call for a special session of the Nebraska legislature during the month of Jul y, in order that the right of suffrage may be extended forthwith to the women of the state. Already partial suffrage is enJoyed

THE NEW PATRIOTISM. By Edgar A Guest. It isn't enough on the Fonrth of July .To send up a r ocket to break in the sky; It isn't enoug h, as we've all come to know, To hang out Old Glory and make a big s how. To stand up and cheer For the Flag once a year Is a ll very well in its limited way, But what we must do For thP Red, White and Blue Is to love it anrl honor it day after rlay. It im' t enough on the Fourth of Jul y

To t ake off you r ha t a s the Flag' s pass ing by, Or s tand when " The Star Spangled Banner" is played And cheer as the sol diers ·go past in parade. It is a ll vpry well Your devotion to tell On the F ourth of July by a· brilliant display, But the Flag that you love As it ripp les abo ve N eeds so mething of service fr ·1m you every day.

Meetings of Christian Organization s. Last Sunday morni ng th~ Christian o'r ga ni zations, consisting of Lutherans, Episcopal Guilds, Cath · plies, Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. met in the t.ig h schao l room. The topic was "The Wider H ori zon of Christianity," led by Mr. Cottle. The unity of the organizations was shown by the way in which the people responded to the appropriate songs led by Mr. Weir. A Psalm of uni ty was read as the scripture lesson. The big thot that religion is the love of God in the heart of man was supreme. But uni ty cannot re ign without the help of the individual as was brot out so well by M iss Kisler. Each person has his own beli ef but we are all wo r king toward one great end. This councry is free and people have religious freedom as Miss Boetje suggested. Today we have t he best oppor tunity for the working of all the organizations as one. During t he peri od of reconstructi on we have no time to stop and think what organ ization we are representing. It is our business to work as a unit to the best of our ability. The democracy of rel igion may be brot about as was shown by Miss Crink and Miss Barbee. The bi g ptoblem of the world iR union. This was the great t heme of the Estes Park Conference. Mr. Roettger t old us of some of the ~onderful t hings which he had heard at the meeting there. We hope to hear more from the boys about the conference. The meeting was fi lled with the good f eeling of t he organizations and all seemed a step closer to world uni ty.
