noon before the 'Drama league at
the Fontenelle. The subject of the
' Englishman's lecture will be "D'An
nunzio, the Genius of Italy."
"Of the 25,000 Jboks published
about the world war, I find there
are about a half dozen that are
worthy of-merit as far as plot and
literature are concerned," Mr. Powys
said. ' ' .
. "I like the west, and find that the
people of the middle west are the
real, characteristic Americans," he
' ' continued. "Their literature appears
to be more characteristic of their
nature." ' f..
Mr. Powys predicts a revival in
the writing of poetry, together with
more imaginative and philosophical
works. The-lecturer leaves tonight
for St. Joseph, Mo., where he will
speak before a literary society on

Several novel services were held

Speaks on Roosevelt.
Rev. R. L. Wheeler, pastor of

ning topic. He called attention to
the fact that today is the 61st anni
versary of the birthday of the great
ex-president Mr. Roosevelt lives
on as an example for American boys
and girls to follow, he said. He
called attention to Mr. Roosevelt's
physical handicaps and the indomit
able spirit which overcame them.
Roosevelt was a man of clear
vision, the clearest vision of anv
American," said Rev. Mr. Wheeler.
"He was also a great prophet and
a man of firm convictions."
Another feature of the dav a serv
ices at the Wheeler Memorial
church were a series of afternoon
calls made by officers of the church
on mmbers o the congregation.
More than 500 calls were made dur
ing the afternoon. During the morn
ing services at the church 120 little
boys and girls joined the Roose
velt Memorial association.
Morning services in all the
churches of the city were marked
by large attendances. Many pastors
spoke on Americanization in honor
of former President Roosevelt
