7:0 p. m. by Prof. P. H. Brower ofLne entrance of the French-Belgian
art exhibit, which opened Thursday
afternoon at the Auditorium.
"September Morn, by Frederic-Au-gustie

on the charming little gray print.
We are sure this is the original

To Drill at Kimball Yard

paved driveway, at 2236 St. Mary's
avenue, will take on a military at
mosphere at 10:30 tomorrow morn
ing when members of the National

their first lesson in physical drill.
Miss Kathenne Grable, who has
devoted several years to the instruc
tion of aesthetic dancing m this city

York, will drill the women one hour
"This standardized physical drill
represents an effort for the develop
ment of discipline, self control, team
work, endurance and 'esprit de
corps,' and is in no way intended to
fit the women for military service.
The National League tor Woman
Service does not conceive this to be
a part of women's responsibility,
said one of the women.
"For the present we will wear our
usual costumes, but later on will un
doubtedly need the regulation drill
costume," said Miss Kimball, com
mandant of the detachment.
Among those interested in this
branch of the work are Mesdames
Rex Morehouse, S. S. Caldwell,
Miriam Fatter-on-Boyce, Lowrie
Childs, Henry Doorly and the
Misses Joy Higgins, Leeta Holdrege
and Bertha White.
