Vada Malone, Isaac Malone, Mrs. Virgil Farmer. Handsome Howdy" Wilcox In Great Hoosier Gasoline Derby CALLED NATION'S MODEL CITY High Distinction That, by General Consent, Seems to Have Been Won by Marysville, Mich. Thirty miles north of Detroit lies what Is known as the "model city of America," says a Detroit telegram to the St. Louis rost-IMspateh. It Is Marysville, owned entirely by a development company. The model city Is marked by clean private homes, well-paved streets, little wealth and a contented community, where strikes nre unknown. Marysville was a struggling community of some few hundred souls when the Marysville Land Development company was formed. The company proceeded to buy up the entire town. Factory sites were then sold to other concerns and homes were sold to the workers at "a reasonable price. To those who did not care to buy, suitable hotel and boarding-house accommodations were provided. There Is no politics in this little city of 30,000 population. The principal property holders ouch year hire a city manager to run the place on the commission form of government. The city's school system Is not surpassed by any In America. Educators Mere brought from some of the largest cities In the country and told to provide the best. Dance halls, movie theaters and steamboat companies were granted concessions under the city government. Taxes are low, as the upkeep of the town Is practically paid for largely by the manufacturers. MAKE THE PARK PRACTICAL and Thought Bestowed on Recre-ation Ground Will Be Found Thoroughly Worth While. The recreational value of our public parks Is, of course, a scientifically practical value. Play Is essential to the health and success of a nation. Any form of play Is beneficial. Any recreation which calls Into use brain centers which are not used In our serious routine work Is Improving. Even the least healthful forms of play, recreations which do not tend to help our physical well-being, bave a certain value In that they rest the over-worked part of our brains and thus tend to save us from neuroses and nervous breakdowns. The best form of recreation, however, Is that which takes us into the open air, provides wholesome exercise, and aids brain and body at the same time. For city residents the parks supply an ample field for recreation of this kind. HANDSOME STREET SIGNS The proprietor of a store in China, town, San Francisco, was given permission to erect a street sign In keeping with the atmosphere of the locality. Large balls of heavy. In-laid brown glass surmount the usual Iron posts. Popular Mechanic Magazine. The "City Practical." "Never use the word 'city beautiful' when you are trying to sell a city plan to your city or community," advises n real estate expert. "Use 'city practical and city efficient,' for out of the practical city will come the beautiful dty. There has been a wrnfig Impression that city planning Is nothing more or less than the embellishment and beautlficatlon of the city, whereas It Is the lopping off of the unnecessary things; it Is cutting down to the prac tlcal things that makes It responsive to every call that Is put upon It ; and out of that order, out of that very rhythm of movement, out of the ability to do the' things placed upon It, will WWne 'the city beautiful.'" How Town "Growa." A town thrives the hest and accomplishes the most when It grows. It grows when Its citizens grow. Its citizens grow when they have mind-power and soul-power. True growth means making today better than yesterday, tomorrow better than today. Growth means changing ourselves to conform to outward circumstances. 'Growth la finding ourselves, getting rid of shortcomings and utilising what hi really worth the effort.

Mrs. Clint Winslow returned from The Movies OFFERINGS AT THE ROYAL "THE GREATEST LOVE" When Ellis Island disgorges its hundreds of emigrants at the Battery entrance to New York City, there is always a crowd of neverjaded New Yorkers curiously watching the foreign, fantastically garbed people from strange lands. In "The Greatest Love," coming to the Royal theatre Thursday night, the audience has an opportunity to see not only this picturesque scene, but are also given generous glimpses of the surroundings of the emigrants on board ship, whiling away the time with song and dance. These pictures were taken on board one of the large transatlantic liners and the emigrants which the audience see, stolidly watching the camera man take the necessary shots, act so naturally simply because they are not acting at all, with the exception, of course, of the two little players, Bobbie Connelly and Dot Williams. Vera Gordon, the noted portrayer of "mother" in "Humoresque," has the starring role in "The Greatest Love," which was made under the direct Vm of Henry Kolker. Other prominent players in the cast are Hugh Huntley, Sally Crute, Donald Hall and Bertram Marburgh. "OFFICER 666" "She loves me, she loves me not" murmured Tom Moore while waiting for his entrance, and picking the leaves of the proverbial prophetic daisy. "What's the idea Tom?" asked Harry Beaumont, who directed Moore in "Officer 666," a Goldwyn picture, which comes to the Royal theatre, Friday night. "Its this officer business, Beaumont. These sudden changes from officer to civilian, back again, etc., get my goat. I simply couldn't remember them, so now I pick a daisy t,! find out. When she loves me I'm an officer when she doesn't, then Pm not. Seems to come ou tright whichever way it works. "Officer 666" is perhaps the most intricate and cunningly contrived plot in which Tom Moore ns been starred. Kri-wn for his versatility and quick comprehension in his work, the pic. ture really got "his goat as Moore says, while Jeanne Calhoun, who supports Moore in the play, went around for more than a week mournfully inquiring, "Tom, when are you the officer and when are you not, and why are you? Taken in sections, as the plot is worked out In the studio, nothing less than wildest confusion could result. Seen in its entirety, as "Officer 666" is presented to the audience, a more fascinating and absorbing tale of intrigue and scheming cannot be imagined. Zoological gardens in England are in the market for Antrican bison. A Douglas fir tree cut tn British Columbia was found t be 420 years old. Mesdames John Flanagan and H. T.

The pastors of the different church es met at John Hunt's store Tuesday morning for the purpose of systematically arranging the names of the new converts in regard to their church preference with the following results: Friends, 195; Methodist Episcopal, 150; Congregational, 71; Baptist, 24; Wesleyan, 53; United Bretheren, 11. About 100 did not express a church preference and these will probably be scattered through the several churches. Dr. T. J. Carter who recently graduated from the Indiana Medical school at Indianapolis, has returned here with his wife and will probably locate in Upland in the near future. PLANT INDOOR WINDOW BOX Small Expense and Little Effort Required to Have Ornamentation Always Pleasing. To the real garden lover the charm of the garden can he extended all through the winter months, for a window garden gives cheer to a room and Is always a source of interest and delight. Window boxes can be kept charming for the entire year by filling them with hardy begonias and ferns, suggests the Christian Science Monitor. Another interesting arrangement, all In green. Is of small palms and ferns of the long-leaved Boston type, and asparagus sprengeri to trail over the edge. Primrose, the Chinese or common variety, and Irish Ivies make a window box with a delightful color note. For late autumn. If the room is kept cool, some of the darling little chrysanthemums In brown and yellow are effective and they will last several weeks. For the late winter or early spring flowering bulbs may be used among ferns. In planting a winter garden one must always remember that plants do not thrive near steam heat, and If the radiator is under the window a broad shelf should be placed six inches or more above ft and the box set back on the shelf, so that rhe force of hot air does not come too near the foliage. The smaU expense and the little effort required for a beautiful Indoor window box makes It possible for every home-loving woman to have one. Restoration Worth While. Why build new cottages? Why not repair old ones? These were the questions asked by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, in England, and answered successfully. The society took a veritable relic of old England, five centuries old if a single day, in the shape of two dwellings under one roof at Drinkstone, In Suffolk. The thick timbers, seasoned to the quality of Iron, were good, but the roof, the floor and the windows were defective. In fact the building was habitable only on a portion of the ground floor. Nothing daunted, the society set to work and, by judicious restoration, made the old dwellings as sound as a bell. The total cost of the work, Including the freehold site, was $3,612. A new cottage would have cost at least $4,750, not including the site. Is It any wonder that the society Is casting round for other old haunts to conquer? Christian Science Monitor. New "Landed Gentry in England. The advent of a new "landed gentry In England since the war Is made plain by "Burke'sJ? an annual work of reference on that subject which has reappeared after a break of seven years. Over 100 names of old landowners have disappeared since the last edition, and their places have been taken by double that number of newcomers. In the preface, the editor remarks: "Much as the passing of old families from the land, or the diminution of their holdings. Is to be regretted, the rise of a new class of landed gentry, possessed of means enabling them to develop estates which had become Impoverished through the misfortunes of their previous owners, cannot be without benefit to the country. Fatal airplane accidents in France have -no apparent deterrent effect on passenger traffic. READ TltB CLASSIFIED COLUMN 1 LAUNDRY CO. this slipper-throwing custom is said to have descended. Astrakhan fur is made from the skin of newborn Persian lambs. INDIANAPOLIS, IND. "Handsome Howdy" Wilcox had one of the fastest cars In the last 500-mile race and when the starting bomb bursts on Tuesday, May 30, he expects to have the fastest. Howard will pilot the Peugeot he pinned his hopes to a year ago but this time Is chock-full of confidence. During the winter Wilcox has rebuilt the engine of his Peugeot and put in many frigid hours whirling his steed around the brick oval. The photo shows the 1919 winner tn winter driving togs. The practice of throwing an old shoe after a bride is, it seems, quite misapplied when it is done by some of her companions for luck. According to the spirit of the4 ceremony, which is of very ancient lineage,, it should' be done by the parent or guardian pf the bride, as indicating a renouncing of all authority over her. Chieftains in feudal times took off their shoes and handed them to their conquerors in token of accepted defeat from Which practice LETTER LIST Letters remaining in the postoffice for the week ending April 80, 1922, which if not called for in two weeks will be sen; to the dead letter office: E.
