In their well rendered numbers these young ladies displayed the effect of careful training upon the part of their teacher, Miss Hay, and diligent work upon their own behalf. Friday evening a large audience of parents and friends witnessed the regular graduating exercises of the class of the same institution.

Yance, after which Miss Allye Garnett gave to the audience her essay, entitled, "The Great War and the Modern Woman." She was followed by Mr. Orion Drake, who delivered an oration, "The Triumph of Democracy." Miss Opal Garnett then delighted the audience with a reading, "The Sweet Girl Graduate." This part of the program was concluded with a duet rendered by Misses Buster and Piercy. , Eev G. W.

High School which went before the two that' are named in this writing, were given in last week's News. Wednesday evening was Class Night and the Gym was crowded with friends who were anxious to greet the graduating class. The program was interesting and each graduate performed his or her duties to perfection. The first on the program was an invocation by Eld Z. T. Williams. This was followed by a song, "Where Are You Going to My Pretty Maid?" rendered by the Seniors. "Class History" was given in a very happy manner by John Henry Hancock This was followed by Miss Marguerite Lovett, who was the Giftorian, a place admirably filled. Then came a solo, "Just a Baby's Prayer at Twilight," which was charmingly sung by Miss Latitla Paull. Fred Walker Harris was the Class Poet, and his production Miss Grace was exceedingly good. Huffaker was the Class Knocker, and. she knocked, bringing down house. Sarah Mildred Coffey was the Prophet and she had many interesting predictions. "Class Will" was given very beautifully by Miss Anna Eubank. Miss Allene Montgomery was next, but on account ot a dlsrbled finger, she could not render the piano solo,.

Judge Sinclair will be doing his duty when he takes this step and he is determined to do it. All available space in the Baptist church was taken Thursday evening; in honor of the commencement exercises. The choir greeted the audience by singing "America." This was followed by Ealph Taylor Garnett, who delivered the Salutatory, "The Hope of Democracy." Mr. Garnett is very talented and was at hia best upon this occasion, enthusing the many who heard him. The Valedictorian was Mr. Shreve Tuttle Davis, his subject being "Would You Be Great?" He handled it in a most graceful manner, showing that his efforts were appriciated. "For the Flag and America," was then sung by the class, which was followed by a well prepared address by Dr. Boyd, of Lexington.

Imagine your boy on a troop train bound for some United States seaport where a transport lies ready to take him and his regiment "over there." He never felt healthier In his life In body. In mind? If he finds moments when his thoughts begin to race back toward you, wondering what you, are doing, can you blame him If occasionally something lumps In his throat "OTJFFER Little Children to come unto me' de-clared the compassionate Christ.

There are now more than 500 of these Red Cross canteens or refreshment units located at the important raUroad centers In the United States. Every commander of a troop train has a list of these canteens, so that he can call upon the Red Cross for this service at these stations en route. ed There are the "Little Children" who have gone to France for you and me and for Christendom and by going have given their all. Can you do less? Shall you keep from your boy or your neighbor's boy that which is symbolic of the Compassionate One by neglecting the call of the Red Cross Mother? Then there are the uncounted "Little Children" of our allies who have fallen wounded and ill in defense of their home fires. Who but the Red Cros3 Mother can know the suffering, the anguish, of the shell-torn soldier who lies upon the ghostly bed of No Man's Land? Will you deny him cup? the Think also of the "Little Children" of devastated lands. Some are "Little Children" in size and tender years. Others, alas, are mature in stature and age, but none the less "Little Children" in their helplessness their abject need. Can we in our plenty withhold from them the bare bread of existence? Can we still our inner voice with the thought that others will bear our burden, when in our heart we must know that there are no others? The Red Cross helps no one who does not need help a hundred times more than we need the money. Therefore, let us give, give until we feel it, give until it pinches. Then and only then we shall know that we have indeed offered the "Little Children" of the war the tender compassion of a nation. n, thirst-strickelife-givi- ng What the Italian Premier Thinks of the American Red Cross When the Austrians last October routed the Italian Army by trickery and drove before them half a mUlIon refugees, the part which the American Red Cross played in this stupendous, tragedy will go down In the history of Italy and the world as one of the most magnificent dashes of reUef work that has ever come to light Listen to what the Italian Premier said of this work In his address a't the opening of Parliament early last December: "Our soul Is stirred again with ap for .collecting said tax .RECAPITULATION.

Within sound of the deep throated guns of the French firing line, guns that are ceaselessly telling the Germans "thou shalt not pass," live hundreds of happy, healthy children. At the beginning of the war the buildings in which these kiddies now live and play and study were barracks for French boys training to be soldiers. Today these boys those who are left of them are veterans. These barracks are gobd modern buildings, and they are set amid beautiful scenery. There are several of these groups of barracks scattered throughout France, and all of them have been turned Into homes for the nation's homeless children. At one of the .barrack-nurserie- s there are more than 800 children. Some are babies of a few days old, and the oldest is not over ten years. Most of these children are orphans. Some few of them have mothers who are working In fields and factories to help France win the war. And these little folks are receiving the first intelligent care of their lives. Skilled American doctors are In charge of the kitchens, and experienced teachers are Instructing those old enough to attend the barrack-schoo- l. The older girls and boys are being taught useful trades as well as the usual classroom lessons, and with It all these children are learning the Joy in healthy play. France laid upon us a sacred service in this care of Its children. And how noble has been the response of our American Red Cross!

Aroused by the indignation shown by the whole world over the ruthless deportations of the people in Belgium and France, socialist deputies of the $100,000,000 given last June by the OUT people to the Red Cross, nearly one-ha($45,000,000) has gone to help the refugees, the orphaned children, the repatriates and wounded of the French, Belgian, Italian, Serbian, Roumanian and other peoples. The Red Cross has spent more than $30,000,-00- 0 in France alone in the establishment of canteens for the poilus, the reconstruction of devasted districts, the care of homeless children, the housing of refugees, the sending of food, clothes and supplies to the sorely burdened civilian population.

In Italy a great work of relief was organized drive of last fall, and the after the Austro-Germa- n thousands of refugees that came pouring over the and Po and the Piave were aided by a business-lik- e supply and canteen service, improvised out of the existing organization. More than $3,000,000 was thus spent for Italy. American funds will soon make the plain of "Monastir fertile once more through the importation of seeds and agricultural implements. In this section of Serbia more than fifty thousand refugees have been on the verge of starvation for nearly two years.

In another dispatch from Havre (Washington Post, September 24,1917) it is stated that "the German military authorities at Bruges, Belgium, are conscripting forcibly all the boys and men of that city between the ages of fourteen and sixty to work In munition factories and shipyards.

As Smith and I arrived they were discussing the problem of a soldier's wife and aix children found living in two tenement rooms in a building that rad been condemned because of a leaky roof, mouldy floor and lack of Ore protection. JThey had sold most of their furniture piece by piece for current living expenses. The children had no change of clothing. There was no income and, because of the mother's condition, no pos sibility of one, except the expected allotment and allowance, which even when itjcame would not entirely meet the cost of living in the city. The Home Service worker had given a generous sum of money to meet the urgent needs, and now the committee was planning to rent better quarters, move the family, secure medical and nursing attention for the woman, outfit them all irith clothing and furniture and keep regularly in touch with the family. the women's uniform corps drove us in her machine out tn n camp where there are 30,000 men. uere we met the Red Cross Home Service man. We didn't take his time, we just watched him. One moment he was helping a man to fill out duplicate allotment blanks; the next he was arguing the merits of insuring to the limit; the next he was wiring a Home Service Section to visit a man's family; next he was going with aboy who had received a tragic telegram from home to see the commanding offi cer about a leave of absense; then he was speeding on his way a poor fellow mscnarged because of nermanent in jury; then we saw him talkinsr to a soldier and a girl wife at the hostess' house; and as the shadows fell he was closeted with a worried chap, who was telling Mm about an imnendine mnrt. gage foreclosure and an expected baby. V. cialist Deputy Haase and Deputy members of the reichstag: "Thousands of workmen in the occupied territory have been compelled to forced labor; we earnestly ask the government to restore to these workmen their liberty, especially in Belgium. In truth, we (the Germans) find no sympathy In neutral countries ; even the pope has made a protest against this procedure, and several neutral states have done the same. Common sense itself demands that we abandon this procedure which moreover is in opposition to the Hague convention to which we have agreed." "In opposition to the secretary of state, I must recall that when formerly the Belgjan workmen who had lied to Holland returned to Belgium, Governor General von Bissing promised that these Belgian workmen would under no circumstances be deported to Germany. This reassuring promise has not been kept." Ambassador Gerard's Interesting testimony appears in his recent book: Ambassador Gerard's Evidence. The president (during my visit to America in 191G) Impressed upon me Ills great interest in the Belgians deported to Germany. The action of Ger many in thus carrying a great part of the male population of Belgium Into virtual slavery had roused great indig nation In America. As the revered Cardinal Farley said to me a few days before my departure, Tou have to go back to the tims of the Medes and the Persians to find a like example of a whole people carried Into bondage.' "Mr. Grew had made representations about this to the chancellor and, on my return, I Immediately took up the question. "I was Informed that it was a military measure, that Ludendorf had feared that the British would break through and overrun Belgium and that the military did not propose to have a hostile population at their backs who might cut the rail lines of communication, telephones and telegraphs, arfd that for this reason the deportation had been decided on. I was, however, told I would be given permission to visit these Belgians. The passes, nevertheless, "which alone made such visiting possible were not delivered until a few days before I left Germany. Belgians Forced to Make Munitions. "Several of these Belgians who were put to work in Berlin managed to get away and come to see me. They gave me a harrowing account of how they had been seized in Belgium and made to work in Germany at making munitions to be used probably against their own friends. "I said to the chancellor, 'There are Belgians employed in making shells contrary to all rules of war and the Hague conventions.' He said, 'I do not believe it.' I said, 'My automobile is at the door. I can take you, in four minutes, to where 30 Belgians are , working on the manufacture of shells.' But he did not find time to go. "Americans must understand that the Germans will stop at nothing to win this war, and that the only thing they respect is force." James W. Gerard. My Four Tears In Germany, 1917, Ditt-niann, , 2. French towns. Drunken German soldiers were frightened and began to shoot men and burn houses. The commanding officer condemned this because it was not done by his order and because two German soldiers were wounded. It is evident that massacres and arson were permitted only when commanded by the officers. "Last night a shooting affray took place. There is no evidence that the inhabitants of the towns had any arms in their houses, nor is there evidence that the people took part In the shooting ; on the contrary, It seems that the soldiers were under the influence of alcohol, and began to shoot in a senseless fear of a hostile attack. "The behavior of the soldiers during the night, with very few exceptions, makes a scandalous impression. "It is highly deplorable when officers or noncommissioned officers set houses on fire without permission or order of the commanding, or, as the case may be, the senior officer, or when by their attitude they encourage the rank and file to burn and plunder. "The miserable behavior of the men caused a noncommissioned officer and a private to be Feriously wounded by German bullets. "MAJOR VON BASSEWITZ."

"One interesting result of the deportations remains to be noted, a result that once more places in relief the German capacity for blundering, al most as great as the German capacity for cruelty. Until the deportations were begun there was no intense hatred on the part of the lower classes, i. e., the worklngmen and the peasants. The old Germans of the Landsturm had been quartered in Flemish homes ; they and the inmates spoke nearly the same language; they got along fairly well ; they helped the women with the work, the poor and the humble having none of those hatreds of patriotism that are among the privileges of the upper classes. It is conceivable that the Flemish population might have existed under German rule; It was h Teutonic In its origin and always. But now the Germans have changed all that. "They have dealt a mortal blow to any prospect they may ever have had of being tolerated by the population of Flanders; In tearing away from nearly every humble home in the land a husband and a father or a son and brother they have lighted a fire of hatred that will never go out; they have brought home to every heart in the land, in a way that will impress Its horror Indelibly on the memory of three generations, a realization of what German methods mean, not, as with the early atrocities, in the heat of passion and the first lust of war, but by one of those deeds that make one despair of the future of the Human race, a deed coldly planned, studiously matured, and deliberately and systematically executed, a deed so cruel that German soldiers are said to have wept in its execution, and so monstrous that even German officers are now said to be ashamed. anti-Frenc- Louisville-O- ld Incorporated Inn IPIjST flote ETJIROIPEIN" $1.00 and Up Rooms Without Bath. $1.50 and Up Rooms With l 300 ROOMS Equipped throughout with Automatic Sprinklers the best fire Protection Known to Insurance Engineers.
