One of the most elaborate and en
joyable social events of the season
was the delightful reception given by
Mrs. Fitzhugh Wallace, at her home
on last Friday afternoon, to Mrs.
James Jarjrat, a recent bride.
The spacious home was attractive
ly decorated with a color scheme of
yellow and white, this being effected
large yellow and 'white Chrysan
themums, while the patriotic note was
struck by decorations of numbers of
gathers up the coppers. This week
she got 268 of which 5 had been col
lected and hidden by a few little,
freshmen (Evelyn' prdbably in the
bunch) and produced with great pride
to help swell the sum. Miss Aline
Brown surprised the Senior class by.
her unusual effort. She brought a
$5 bank in dime pieces, full of dimes
'Instead of snipping scraps," she ex
plained. "But where did you get it?"
asked the girls breathlessly. . "Just
asked for it," she said, "and everybody
vras willing to help me fill my bank."
This made nearly $8 from . the High
School this week, and was about one
fifth of the whole collection. Fine for
the High School, we make our best
bow but mighty, mighty, poor for the
town. You older people will have to
make more sacrifices and deny your
selves a whole lot if vou want to keep'

The Nation's Needs
Any patriotic American would glady stand
aside and give his place anywhere to an officer
on government duty.
The placing of the Bell telephone system at the
disposal of the government, as was done wherjr'
war broke put, involved the same patriotic obliga
tion;1 During the months of military preparedness,
the War anderNavy Departments had the- service .
of the most comprehensive and efficient telephone
system in the world. And it must be kept so. In
the face of the unprecedented demand from pri-'
vate sources, every government need niust and
will be met.
The government comes first but we; are do- . J
ing everything that science can suggest; and that
money can accomplish to maintain Mr general
Service at the usual standard of efficiency. A
loyal organization is working contim&usly to meet
the increased demands and your patient co-operation
will prove helpful and inspiring.
Telephone users can help b avoiding useless
conversation and by encouraging their employes
and associates to use the telephone only when
necessary during the busy fyours of the day, and
to make thir conversations brief.
With this patriotic attitude of the public to-,
ward us we can serve the government first and
render a service that will jtieet the requirements
of the commercial and social world.
