O., has control of all foreign travel matters. The applications wants to know when and where you were born, and whether you chose American or European parentage. It wants proof of these facts, by having you furnish a birth cirtificate and this is not an .easy thing to do, for while you were present at the time, you were so peeved at the doctor for his help in the case, that you tore up the document later which heralded your advent. But as a birth certificate is urged, and u you cannot find your own, a christening or confirmation statement will be accepted, but if these are also lack- tag, then some one who has known you for ten years is coerced into affirming all he knows about you and some things he doesn't know. The more you can or learn from the family ate into acted amiss, the application, preferably in my case, attested to by the deputy county clerk, goes to Washington, accompanied by three 'photos on a light background, 3% inches by 3% Inches in size on which you have written your full name. Initials will not do. The size of the photo is stipulated because there is a space just that size'on the application and passport on which your beautiful picture Is pasted. One detail is not to be overlooked, kindly pin check for ten dollars to the application to "pay postage,". when back comes the passport signed by Secretary Henry L. Stlmson, permitting you to travel for two years in foreign countries, .with the potential power of the stars and stripes ever over you. But to insure landing somewhere the consul of that country must be consulted before hand. The Argentine consul at New York City to whom we took our troubles, insisted upon a certified statement from the health department of our home town that we had recently been successfully vaccinated against the small pox and typhoid fever. He must have suspected that we purposed using their water for other than bathing purposes, so three "shots" one week apart renders us immune from tyhpoid.

A feature of the convention which the girls i liked very much was the harmonica band. Minnie Scheppman, Busy Burt Bunch and AUce Payne, Alethian, played in the band. The only requirement to enter the band is that the girls be able to read music, It is not necessary-that they know how to play a harmonica. The band also played at the Four- H girls all talent night during the convention. The girls can play several tunes on the harmonica and plan to teach all the other girls in their club that want to learn.
