About His Age to
Enlist in U.S. Navy
A worried mother appealed to
Lieisenant Waddell to get her son
released from the navy.
Tears formed in her eyes and she
went away pondering ovej the best
course to, pursue.
The lad had furnished a forged
paper, purporting to be the mother's
consent to his enlistment, she said.
The boy is under 16 years of age, but
swore he was past 16, because he was
anxious to join the fighting forces.
"If you do not press the case," said
the lieutenant, "your boy will stay in
the navy and have no trouble. But if
jou do want to get him out on the
grounds that he misrepresented his
age and forged your consent, he will
get out of the navy only to go to
prison for his offense."
Names of the mother and son are
withheld by the naval officers.

Stunning skirts are of oyster white

Separate vests or vestees separate

Broadcloth, plus pontine, makes an
ideal traveling and motor coat for the

waxed, outer side and its inner side
of supple broadcloth, is immensely
utilitarian because it minds not wind
or wet weather and keeps one warm,
dry and comfy, whatever the day. It
is also and this is quite as important
from the bride's point of view truly

A Stunning Springtime Suit
BLUE serge is the foundation of this suit, which manages to
do a great deal to so trifling a thing as a mere foundation.
The startling waist oat and collar are cut of cross-barred
pique, and the coat fastens smartly across them by means of
narrow black moire ribbon. Wide black Hercules braid binds
collar, pockets, cuffs and the flaring coat of the deeply cutaway
skirt. The hat is of rose-colored straw, crowned in pansie of
7ose-color velvet, so soft and pretty that one wishes they might
come true. And one little pansy peeks saucily over the brim.

Spring madness is such a pleasant
disease that one is tempted to yield
rather than to fight. All the strange
little emotions and desires which stir
are so delicious that it is a tempta
tion merely to rhapsodize over how
beautifully they fit in with the tiny
buds and leaves which are clamoring
up into life. But what do all these
"delicious" little symptoms of waking
life do to us? They drive us into
unconsidered follies of the emotions
and the pocketbook, and they prevent
us from keeping our minds on our
Spring makes us long to throw off
responsibility and to get out into the

living. Vaguely we crave companion

Of course, the first signs of spring
are generally epidemics of grip, orgies
of shopping and feelings of impatient
boredom with tasks which have been
satisfactory enough all through the
winter. Then comes a wild longing
for freedom, for self-expression, and
for the joy of loving. And prestol
the buds are out and it is spring made
