MASON Cl'i't iHAKCH 10 1931 /1\ CHILDREN WRITING GOOD POETRY NOW '·*" f -i ' ^ '-Carl Sandburg Praises Work of Juveniles of America, i "There'" has never been such^ a tremendous output of poetry from the children as there is at present," Carl Sandburg, American poet and biographer, who was scheduled to lecture' before the Woman's' club Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock at the First Methodist church, said ,today. "Grade school, high school^ and college young people are writing-and writing fine poetry. I've never heard of the aurora borealia called th rainbow of the night--hut that's what a. boy in one of the Glencoe, III,, schools called it in a poem he wrote. . "There is a lull in "the publication of poetry at present, but there has never been a twenty year period like the one just "past which could equal the amount of poetry. Book of the Sea. '1 have been reading ·' book, "Fiddler's Green," .by Albert Wee- ten which will be published in early May. It is a compilation of stories and ·· songs '-of the sea--about the sailor's heaven. You meet 'Davy Jones and feel very familiar with him."' Asked about his ' forthcoming volume on Lincoln Mr. Sindburg 'declined to make any comment. '^t's like a baby which is .expected. You don't talk about it because you don't know how it's going to turn out. It won't have the lyrical qual- . ity which the first volume had because of the war. 'The threads are so confused-- no one knows yet why the war was fought. - Too Big a Show. "I don't think there will be any great American novel because there is no one" who saw the, whole show. -- it was too big. Your neighbor, Rolvaag, has' done a tremendous ^ thing in his "Giants in the Earth." The book is epic in Its quality -Homeric. : Ruth -Suckbw . does the same thing but she hasn't the material in the Katterhenrys that Rol- vaag had in Per Hansa. , "Carl VanVechten has become over sophisticated and forgotten · \ the winds that blow^ over , Iowa. There is .^another man from Cedar Rapids, whose work is very good. He is the head of an insurance company 'and he · writes poetry and sketches." 1 Mr. Sandburg began his career as a newspaperman and in cora- / menting on the Globe-Gazette plant mentioned that he had recently come from Marion, Ohio, where he visited the 'offices of the, Star. i'They have a room therewith Harding's desk and chair and copies of the paper headlining his election and his death. The people in the town doR'tjtalk about him __ ^mucb. because they've don't ' know wha^tof §ay.; Too many 'books have i been written' about him." Bits Abbut'em Mr. and Mrs. Lee R. Bailey, 1010 First street .southwest, .have' arrived home after a two weeks' motor trip^ thru the south. The Baileys visited in Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Louisiana, ·going as far south as Atlanta, Ga. In Atlanta they heard an address by Richard.. Byrd, Antarctic explorer. One of the points of interest near Ashville, N. Car., was the Vander- bllt estate which has recently been opened to :th«- public)/In Nashville, Term., they visited the "Hermitage," .home of Andrew Jackson.

Rawson, of Des Moines, who comes out publicly in favor of Veg-All for those who seek better health. "In all my years as a Physician nothing has ever Approached Veg-AII as,a Needed Health-Aid for Our People!" Times change. Less than a century ago kings and, i merchant princes journeyed thousands of miles to so-called "Health Centers" where they sought deliverance'from suffering in the healing water's of natural springs. Today, the whole world is scoured for the ;great s t r e n g t h-giving, body-building, nerve-toning properties of Nature. These are 'brought together in a laboratbry : --refined, distillea 1 , and finally concentrated in ONE MIGHTY NEW MEDICINE--Veg- All--which brings YOU, right here in this, city, the health-wealth of the world! Veg-All Is Publicly Endorsed by Distinguished Doctors- Physicians everywhere--in , the great medical centers of Europe and the large and small. cities of America--are' hailing the wonders of Veg-All in public endorsements. Among them is Dr. .C.' D. Rawson, of Des Moines, who was retained to pass expert opinion on the Veg- All formula. Through many years of practice, he has won the confidence of hundreds of men and women and writes the following 'sincere and amoEing statement: "When a physician practices as long as I have, he usually learns not to be surprised at anything. But I must confess that I was astonished , at the great natural power which has been concentrated In Veg-All, and the wonderful results which this medicine achieves In helping worn-out and run-down men arid women to better health. "Never, in all my years'of practice, have I encountered a medicine which is so absolutely safe and yet which acts so positively and so powerfully. My endorsement of Veg- All is most hearty. Men and women who seek greater strength and through it better health will find this- msSJicine a'mighty aid." v Veg-All Might Be Just What You Need Perhaps Dr. Rawson's J warm praise of Veg-All brings YOU new hope! Why drag along with insufficient energy, when Veg-All may give you renewed strength and vigor? Why be nervous, irritable and "on edge" all .the time, when Veg-AH may soothe! your nerves by-strengthening them? Why suffer from poor appetite, when Veg- All may give y^u zest for wholesome nourishing food? Why spend nights in sleepless depression, when Veg-All gives you sound 1 slumber and rest? And why be weak, pallid and anemic, when Veg-All may tone up your whole system and be " the means of bringing you glorious, "radiant health? ( It is all -so simple--so easy--so safe. There are no drastic drugs-no DOPE--in Veg-All. Veg-All 3s an ALL-Vegetable medicine. And Veg-All is guaranteed to help you. Unless it does, your money will ba refunded .under the famous ?5,OOG guarantee, previously published in this paper. Get your v first bottle of Veg-AU from your druggist NOW--today. Start taking Veg-All at once, and note the surprising and almost immediate improvement! When greater strength and better health are so easily to be had, you owe It to yourself and your friends* and loved ones to seize this opportunity! (C) 1931. 5 So. Federal Ave. Phono 89
