The have melted thti. hatred
and buried the Mason and Dixon
line under thegreat banner the
Stars and Stripes of America. The
hearts of the grays and the hearts
of the blues have turned to their
grandsons, all in khaki brown.
To a true American the feeling
that existed in the south since the
'civil war was a disgrace, to the
union. The unjust accusations and
harsh criticisms flung at the grand
fathers of the present generation
were the cause of many a fight.
To hear the southerner laughing
ly tell that he was 21 and traveled
before he knew damnyankee should
be spelled as two words made the
average northerner turn away in
disgust. But when the southerner,
on the other hand, listened to criti
cisms of his treatment of the negro
by the descendants of his civil war
opponents his already hot blood
boiled. .Their statements were
based largely on hearsay and most
of them were without foundation.
So the blues hated the grays and
the grays hated the blues; a hatred
bred during the conflict of the '60s.
And why? Why was there such
a vivid line between the north and
south in the minds of the blues and

achievement. Northerners read
northern history in which every
northern victory was brilliantly
fought for; their methods were al
ways justifiable and their deeds
heroic and gallant.
To learn of the brutalities of the
north we had only to read southern
history, and to learn that southern

gentlemen to the "manner born."
but a lot of low-down scoundrels,
we read no-thern history. For his

Actual travel broadens and it has
helped to dim the Mason and Dixon
line. But even unto the third and
fourth generation a bitter memory
lingered. Now one great sorrow,
one great grief has wiped it out al
most entirely. -

of the civil war are waving adieu to

Solvina Servant Problem
For Women of the West
Over 80 per cent of us must do
without a maid, either because there
are not enough to go around or on
account of lack of means. It seems
necessary, then, to equip our homes

the hard work.

We have the bread mixer, tireless
cooker, dustless mop, and sometimes
the electric iron, washing machine,

In addition to the furs belonging to
governments of the United States and
foreign countries there are catalogued
pelteries from more than twenty-eight
foreign coutries and from every state

many of the trappers have been called
to serve their countries in the trenches
has made little difference in the quan

has done its full share for quality.
