Nafcis Still Hope to End Europe's War (Continued from Page 1) thing else they are fighting for. ^ The Nazi chieftain, however, has neVer established a reputation for deep diving and self- effacement. The word of the day in Europe, therefore, is hope but not optimism. A paragraph in an Associated Press despatch from Rome seems to sum up the public feeling in all countries pretty well in these words: "Some Italians seemed to feel that optimism based upon While the Nazi Soldiers Fight at the Front- O the reformatory Tuesday, had run afoul of a skunk during his wanderings.

This peaceful scene was taken in an asparagus field in a Berlin suburb. the carefully worded declarations of British spokesmen was no more than grasping at straws in the wind. So disastrous did the prospect" of a general European war appear to Italians, however, that they were inclined to seize upon the slightest grounds for hope." While the British have left the door open for consideration of any legitimate peace- offer, the Anglo-French Allies are gofng ahead with the idea that the war will continue and in an intensified form. Sen. Connally Speaks j for Repeal Bill (Continued rrom Page 1) ent embargo act does not guarantee the United States against war, "but its continuance as law involves a constant threat of our being plunged into war through the sinking of American ships and American cargoes." The administration "title and carry" bill would make it "wholly improbably" that any American vessel or cargo would be sunk, he continued, because it provides that all goods purchased by belligerent nations must be transported in foreign ships and that the purchasers must take title to the shipments before they leave American shores. needed to complete the building and put it into actual use. A part of this, about $10,000 to date, is believed available. Remaining $20,000 is sought by general solicitation. In other words, the entire hospital—modest but, from a patient's point of view, one of the most modern, best-equipped smaller hospitals in the United States—can be had by raising balance of the $30,000. Options to complete construction must be taken up by Nov. 15, so final . results must be known by that time. If the options are not taken up, the work will have to be delayed until a later date, at considerably greater cost. Drive officials stress the point that never will a fine new hospital building be closer to realization, at less cost. NEW-FANGLED CAR NEARLY KILLS MT. PLEASANT MAN MT. PLEASANT.

The new building, now in process of construction, is of modified Georgian architecture, of concrete and brick construction, two stories high, with provision for addition of a third story when and if needed. Persons are urged to visit the site, at the corner of South ' Washington avenue and Fourth street, and see the progress to date. It is an attractive though not elaborate building, most of the money 'being scheduled to be spent on the inside where it will do the patient the most good. Contribution Helps Money used in starting the building was contributed chiefly by the late Miss Myrta Elaine, who left approximately $80,000 for construction of a new building. To date, no outside funds have been sought. Sum of about $30,000 is now LYRIC TONICHT AND THURSDAY By GEORGte TUCKER NEW YORK—It's like this. She just put out her hand and a silver dollar drowned into it. It was most mystifying to Mrs. Florence Lennon, of Boulcier, Colorado, who is a guest in New York. Mrs. Lennon is registered at the Hotel Pennsylvania, and this morning she descended to the lobby to purchase | some stamps so that she could mail a letter to her mother back home in Colorado. Then she stepped to the big j brass mailbox. As she lifted the metal flap and inserted the letter a big, round silver dollar dropped into her hand. She uttered a '• startled cry, but she held on to the dollar. For a. moment it looked suspiciously as if Jim Farley had been turning his mail boxes into slot machines. She was standing by the box, still nonplussed, looking at the dollar when a gentleman leaped out of the elevator and exclaimed, "Has anyone seen a silver dollar?" He appeared wildly excited. "Why, yes," replied Mrs. Lennon, "I have. When I put a letter in the box it jumped at me. It almost bit me." The man, whose name was Rene Levy, exhaled in relief. "It's mine," "he said. "To you it is only a dollar, but to me it is everything. It's the first dollar I ever earned. I was up on the eighteenth floor, tapping with it on the mail box, and it slipped down the chute." Mr. Levy, for your further information, is chief of the Pennsylvania's banquet department. And that extremely cheerful countenance he wears may be explained by the fact that he has his lucky dollar back. * * * The new cigarette tax in New York City which compels smokers to pay a total tax of nine cents on each package—six- cent federal tax, two-cent state tax, and one-cent city tax—has renewed interest in the roll- your-own gadgets which enjoyed r. brief popularity a number of years ago. These seir-roners are now practically given away with the purchase of loose tobacco and some of them produce a monogrammed cigarette. Sammy Kay, the swing and sway band leader, tells me that a couple of alert fellows in New Jersey, which has no tax, are advertising cigarettes at pretax prices in the New York papers. They "manufacture" any quantity desired and deliver in Manhattan. The officials haven't found a way yet to prevent this. * * # An old favorite in New York is that outrageously disproportion- ed map of the" United States which is tilted "A New Yorker's Conception of America." The state of Texas on this map has shrunk to the size of a pea. New York itself is Russian-like in vastness, monopolizing the northeastern section of the country. Most of the rivers, including the Mississippi are COWBOYS VS.

Grange meetings were held there probably as early as 1875. Tiie Grange was discontinued for a number of years and was reorganized here some years after the village of Freesoil sprang into existence. For .some years both the Grange and the Gleaners had a good following in Freesoil. There is neither a Grange or Gleaner organization here at present. The Farm bureau and other activities have replaced them so far as Freesoil and community are concerned. the brush and try to roost there. They are easy prey for coyotes. So Alexander placed a goat with the flock and the goat has become so attached to~the turkeys he never leaves them. Whenever Alexander calls the goat, the animal bleats and Alexander knows the location of his turkeys.
