RICHARD BARTHELMESS AND TYRONE POWER IN "FURY" THE GARDEN THEATER FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. AT THE come to realize that the expense is a legitimate one, and will welcome their visitors with every conven ience at their command. VANDALISM THAT HURTS. The Frenchman who brought to this country a novel little aeroplane, and was demonstrating it before thousands of people as the latest in ighter-than-air machines, has found his little contrivance the victim of vandalism to such an extent that it is now useless. He has shown himself a good sport, however, and in returning to France announces that he will build another, and return to this country to give a further demonstration of It, - .... ; Tet the act of curio seekers In destroying the machine will leave no good opinion for the inventor as to the sportsmanship of Americans as a whole, for he will naturally judge the mass by the depredations of the few.' Nor will it serve to elevate the citizenry of the country in the tninds of the French people as a whole. It is such acts of lawlessness, and such demonstrations of vandalism that destroy ' any people in the minds of others. What little curios they could have gotten off the damaged machine, as it stood waiting for a mechanician, will do them no good 'whatever. They will be taken home, shown around for a while, and then be thrown away. Yet it seems to be in the blood of Americans to hunt for curios, and in that hunt to commit depredations which are most harmful. Perhaps there is no people in the world so bent on curio seeking, as the American. - The men and women who served overseas proved the greatest of all the Allied forces, and returned to this country with all manner of souvenirs, gained legitimately and "otherwise. There was no spirit of maliciousness in the acts of the persons who destroyed the Frenchman's machine. They perhaps believed it to be wrecked beyond repair, and proceeded to help themselves to little bits of it to take home and exhibit in future years as parts of such a curious contrivance. But they did a harm to themselves in the acts committed. A new machine can,, be built, perhaps better than the one destroyed. Butajthe damaged reputation of American folks as a whole cannot be repaired for a long 'time from the Injury done to the masses by the thoughtlessness of the few. It's a wise political manager who can see the storm signals and recog nize them for what they are worth. The fellow who Is filling his coal cellar now will have one le? trouble to worry about when winter winds start to blow. In 'most races Dame Fortune seems to be most fickle for the so-called "favorites" picked by the wise acres as the winners. The good citizen Is the one who doesn't have to wait till election time to keep posted on the mooted questions of the day. . About everyone thinks the United States is lax in its enforcement of the prohibition law, except the distiller and the bootlegger. The pessimist is the man who, when winter was here wanted it to -get warm, and now that summer is here, wants it to et cold.

A. SUMMER CAMP UNDERGOES ALTERATION Lighting and Water Systems Installed, Preparatory to Opening of Next Week. A good deal of a transformation, in he matter of conveniences, will be found at the Y. W. C. A. summer camp at Gull lake when the formal opening takes place a week from today and the first group of about 50 girls arrive for their outing. This transformation consists In the installation of complete electric lighting and water systems. The work has been in progrses for several weeks, under th,e direction of Mrs. Sherman Schroder chairman of the summer home committee, and It is expected to be finished by the middle of the coming week. Up to this time the girls have had to depend upon kerosene lamps for lighting purposes and while there ha been no satisfactory means of supplying running water. In consequence of these conditions there have, been several near fires in tha building. For on more than one occasion girls have fallen down the stairs wth lighted lamps in their hands. .And if a fire had occurred a girls' bucket brigade would have had to do the flre-fighting. Now with electrio lights and plenty of power to supply a good stream of water, it Is felt that the fire risk has been greatly reduced. The lighting system will Include a good Hght at the end of thee dock 'and another to light the signal the end of the road, to guide those approaching the camp. The girls' of the federation are earning the money to pay for these improvements. A part of the sum has already been raised by the Kermis that was put on' this spring, and the remainder they plan to raise in a similar way next spring.

Erlanger raid, unless there is a string of first class theaters where they can be run at standard box office prices. Considerable excitement has been caused by a report that the cele Irated statue of Venus Genetrix by Phidias excavated at Naples in 1913 has been taken to France. The statue, of which the Naples museum porsesses tho only copy of the Roman epoch, was originally bought by Marquis Pinelll. who sold it to Jhe Rothschilds for 170,000 francs. So far it has not been determined hew the statue could have been taken across the frontier. A $2,000,000 improvement program has been started in the northwes tern region of the Pennsylvania system, it was announced Friday at Chicago. The Pennsylvania will deepen the slip at Sandusky, O., coal stocks; extend its tracks from Webbs to Walbridge, O.; increase car siding trackage, at Cre3tline, O.; and install a block system from Grand Rapids to Mackinaw City, Mich., including Muskegon, Traverse City and Harbor Springs, Mich. y The News Used to Be ONE YEAR AGO Taken from the files of the Battle Creek Evening News of June 9, 1922.

SATURDAY. JUNE 9, 1923. A GOOD FOUNDATION. There are a lot of parents In this country who ara paying big turns to send their boya to different ocbools for summer training; in lines that tend to build up the physical and the moral fiber of the boy, and send him farther on the way to clean, strong, courageous manhood. - They are doing It. many of them, without thinking of the fact that the government is providing each summer. Just that training for the hoy, and at no expense to himself or his family. The citizens' military training camp idea of the war department is perhaps the most constructive work for the beneHt of the growing boy that has been undertaken In the tistory of the nation. There is nothing compulsory about attending it. There la' nothing compulsory about staying In it once the boy is there. Yet In the four weeks of training the boy is given such a thorough course in. physical and mental' drill, that he comes ouf wondering why he ever overlooked the idea before. There is no better school for a boy than that in which the army regime is a part of the course. For in that schedule the boy is taught not only the military science in its rudimentary forms, but la taught as well personal cleanliness, the value of keeping fit, the art of self protection, and all the other things that enter Into the building up of a healthy body and a healthy rrftnd. And Into it all enters that little seed of discipline which is so much needed in the youthful America of today; a discipline which is exacted by skilled army men, who compel obedience by the force of their personality alone, and respect because they are he-men in every sense of the word. ine government Is caring for thousands of its growing boys in these camps through the summer months in various parts of the country. And it will grow stronger and more virile as the years go on, if the training camp idea is permitted to expand as It should, and is given the right kind of encouragement by legislator and by citizen that it de serves. VIOLATING HOSPITALITY. The person or persons who accept the hospitality of a community's tourist camp, and then violate It by leaving the ground scattered with litter, and by breaking what few simple rules are prescribed, are not worthy of the hospitality shown to them. Many of the communities of the country have been forced to close the tourist camps because of the actions of those who use them. Tnere are two kinds of tourists who travel the country, one being the gentlemanly sort, and the other the kind that cares nothing for the rights of others, and accepts the privileges of the camp as a matter of course, without a thought of the generosity of the community which provided them, and the fact that perbaps the tourist himself owed something in the way of thought-fulness and of care in accepting them. Great public parks, in which pic nlca are neia, nave orten been so violated by those who have used them, that the signs rapidly were put up barring the grounds to pic nickers. Farmers ana lane resorters, who have handsome bits of wooded or lake frontages, have been forced to bar the picnic parties from them, all because they are thoughtless, and leave the grounds littered with all sorts of . ..I. khI a thniiorhf t themselves having some resnonsl bllity In seeing that the place was aa clean. If not cleaner, than when they entered it. The success of the tourist camps over the country, and the future of them, win depend wholly on the spirit shown by those who use them. .
