I I I II THE I I With neaus bowed, and minds az ,-eat, we pause once more to pay our brief tribute to the soldier dead of this great nation. They were ready and willing when their homes needed protection, when the land that was theirs was tn need. They have given their all that we today might be free; to them we ewe a gratitude greater than we can show. "Greater love hath no man than this.--" Let us accord them due honor.

Or the winding rivers be red; TI banish their anger forever When they laurel the graves of our Head! Under the sod and the dew, Waiting the /udgment day; Love and tears for the Blue. Tears and love for the Grey. T HE first spring following the close lf the Civil war found a group of southern women decorating the graves of the soldier dead. They placed thelr floral tributes on all the graves regardless of the color of the uniform the buried men wore. That these mothers, sisters and widows could remember the northern soldiers with the same tbute of love that they re- membered their" own dead brought about a feeling of tolerance all over the country. This little ceremony in- spired the poet, Francis Miles Finch, to write his poem. "The Blue and the Gray." Later It was st to music, and the singing and reading o tt dlcl more to re-establish harmony than any of th well thought out plans of recon- ciliation of the diplomats. The second spring after the war the northern women decorated the graves of the southern men as well as the graves of their own dead. In 1868 General Logan commanded all the soldiers' graves to be decorated. The same year New York declared Me- morial day e legal holiday and state after state follawed Its example So one day toward the latter part of May the dead are honored and a just tribute is paid to memories. Since this day has been largely re- sponslble for establishing harmony be- tween the North and South it is also due to its results that belles from the South and maids from the North now gather In the same soelal cliques. OUR PATRIOTIC E MUSIC ILLIAM BILLINGS Is credited with being the author of, the first American patriotic song, one that became popular with Colonial troops In the Revolutionary war, al- though there was no ag)eclfic title for it. Another early one was "The Lib- erty Song," published In 1768. calling on the people to unite for liberty.

The words and music of "Columbia. the Gem of the Ocean," equally well known as "The Red, White and Blue." were written b Thomas a Becket, an English actor, playing at the Chestnut Street theater in Philadelphia in 1843. It is used in Egland with suitable alteration of the text, as an army and navy song, Sam- ue' Francis Smith, a Baptist clergyman aml poet, of Boston, in 1843 wrote the words of "America," which were sung t the air of the English "God Save the King." "John Brown's Body," com- posed by William Staffs, was sung by Sherman's troops on their march to the sea. "The Battle Hymn of the Re- public," written by Julia Ward Howe after visiting the Army of the Potomac it, Dcember, 1861, is sung to the same tune.

Fishermen's Anchor Fouls a r'|la|e; They Get Speedy Ride Riding on a streamlined train has nothtng on that at the end of a rope attached to an angry whale. Thts is the Ol)imon of W. Edwardu and 3. Eetey, fishermen of G(ff's Harbor. Australia. While they were flsidng near Goff's Harhor the anchor of their launch fouled a large whale, which started off at about a mile a minute, both men holding grimly to the madly- careening craft. Fearing that the whale might dive any seeand and drag the boat with it, Edwards worked forward and cut the rope, freeing the boat. Threatened Duel of Violins Averted M1]siclans of Budap,,st, Hungary, are breathing easier now that the threatened duel of violins has bee averted. Trouble started when Louis Halasz, a Transsylvania gypsy mt ician, secured an engagement in one of the cafes. Budapest gypsy musi- cians met and decided Italasz mtmt stage a musical duel with Julius Csorba. Each was to be backed by a band, and 15 folk songs must be played by eacb. If Halasz won, Csorba mus go on his knees before him. If Csorba won, Halasz must leave town forever. Just as excite- ment was boiling the government or- dered Halasz, now a Rumanhm na. tlonat, to leave Hungary.
