And when you visualize the real Americanism offered at the local Chautauqua you 'will realize how true that statement is. First, there is George P. Bible, who comes with a message from Europe where he was sent by the Community under the direction of the Red Cross, to bring back to America the truth about conditions at the front. And he bring3 it with all the dramatic effect. of his dynamic oratory. And Alexander Cairns who coined the word "Potsdamnation" to express his opinion of Prussianism, combines all the sparkle of his wit and the spirit of fight that is within him to visualize to his hearers what "Americanism" means today. Robert Parker Miles the man who has hobnobbed with princes and potentates friend of the immortal Gladstone, worker with Moody and Booth Tucker a man who knows even the Kaiser himwhich have made gTeat selfadds to those portraits ofpictures men great Americans, him and of a Chautauqua favorite, word others, who are helping to win the war.

WILL DEVELOP COMMUNITY EFFICIENCY ROBERT PARKER MILES Few men get to be on intimate terms with even one of the great men of the world. Robert Parker Miles has known many of them. It was Gladstone, the great British statesman, who said to him, "Mr. Miles, you will go down in history as a contented man, a contented man." That was in response to a remark of this great lecturer and world traveler to the effect that he was now content, having intimately conversed with so great a man as Gladstone. Others whom he knew on his trips around the world were kings, popes, ministers, authors, statesmen. And he has a charming tale to tell a "tallow dip" of each. Indeed, his lecture, "Tallow Dips," is almost a Chautauqua classic, presenting intimate pictures of such great and famous .men as Pope Leo XIII, George Francis Train, Moody and Booth Tucker. This year he has added to the great characters who have had places in his Chautauqua lectures in the past, the portrayal of great men who have been developed by the world war prominent Americans and others who are winning the great struggle. He Brings a s Message Europe From Shell-Tor- n Pi M Produces a Whole Drama; .Taking AH the Parts fimiiHlB &z?f j, jiyyrf-- yjrWwB ; ing and practicing time saving methods. Her time is as valuable and often more valuable to herself, her family and her communityoutside of the kitchen than in it. The housewife employs methods. She does a given task in the best possible manner in the shortest possible time. She eliminates the necessity of doing the same thing twice to gain the desired results. Where this kitchen efficiency rules you usually find Calumet Baking Powder because Calumet is efficient. It is positive in results. It never fails. There are no No "double time" for the housewife. Its dependable action cuts baking time down to a minimun. Allowing the housewife more time to herself. Still there is another way in which Calumet re.ieves the housewife from bake day duties. It enables her tou3e one batch of dough for two bakings. She can work up a pan of dough, use part of it for a baking for the evening meal and set aside the balance in the ice box for break- rast Discuits. in tne morning she saves the time other baking powders require as the dough they are used In must be baked immediately. Whereas Calumet retains its leavening strength until exposed to oven heat. The 'millions of housewives who use Calumet save hours of baking time, and many dollars in bake day costs as the unfailing leavening stringth of Calumet does away with all bake day waste of baking materials, Ad up-to-da- te up-to-d- ate o JAMES S.

That's a word coined by Alexander Cairns, the great lecturer to be heard here soon at the Chautauqua. What a world of dynamite and de struction is wrapped up in it. It tells in a single word what others are takfng pages to express the real American opinion of what Germany has done to the world. Its discussion is one of the things which .makes Cairns' messages for Chautauqua audiences more vital this year than they have ever been, for he has been specially instructed by the government departments in first-han- d information that Uncle Sam wants presented to the people. Cairns is an old Chautauqua favorite. His lips sparkle with native Irish' wit, and he can't get the spirit of fight out of his soul. The things he is for he upholds with all his might, those in which he does not believe will find him fighting to the last. His appearance on the platform is always the signal for applause, for people everywhere have heard him and love him, and are eager to hear him again. Teacher, traveler, lecturer, author and preacher, he is widely known as "both the funniest and most serious man alive." For four years, he was a teacher in Japan and later a college professor of English in America. Since the Chautauqua platform found him out, he has been kept busy spreading his magnetism under the big top. And this year, with his vital war message, he is more popular than ever. G.
