4 ASTRICH'S IN OUR FRENCH ROOM We have marked down some of our prettiest Hats— About 20 Hats. We could not find any more which needed marking down. However, we think we cai interest 20 women sufficiently to give them quite a bargain. The balance of the Hats in our French Room are too new and priced so moderate that they sell on sight. This notice is worth investigating. Elevator to third flow.

I about 150 of the male students of! Lebanon Valley College Marched 1 around the campus and through the I streets of Annville last night as a! demonstration of the war spirit I brought on by the present trouble j with Mexico.

This 1 morning several of the less fortunate j students are nursing badly swollen ! 'aces.

HALL Thursday, April JOth, 1914 Afternoon 2:30 Evening 8:15 Addresses by Able Speakers at Both Sessions WEDNESDAY EVENING JUDGE TREXLER AT CHILD CONFERENCE Will Speak on Saturday, May 9, at the Lehigh Valley Conference All other engagements have been set aside by Judge Frank M. Trexler for Saturday, May 9, so that he may attend the lifth annual meeting of the Lehigh Valley Child Helping Confer ence, to be held at Muhlenberg Col lege. Of this admirable movement Judge Trexler was the founder, as ho was at the time on the common pleas bench of Lehigh county at Allentown. Notable instances of the child helping movement are the famous Neighbor hood House at Palmerton and the Carter Junior Republic at Kedington. Judge Trexler. who was on the bench of Lehigh county for eleven years prior to his elevation to the Superior Court, is intensely interested in chil dren. First of all. long before he ever thought of becoming a judge, he ac quired a family of his own, of the size approved by Colonel Roosevelt. From his experience on the bench he gleaned the idea that it was all wrong to treat certain children, or any chil dren at all, in the criminal sessions, and became a pioneer in the child helping movement. Judge Trexler is president of the i 1 Juvenile Court Association of Penn sylvania, which aims to keep children i out of the courts, and he is the ; I founder and has for twenty years been : ! the president of the Allentown Young , Men's Christian Association, which I during his administratiftn, year by 1 year, has had a membership of up ward of 23,000. A remarkable stroke ' of ability on the part of Judge Trexler was the financing of the magnificent! | $200,000 building of the Allentown i Y. M. C. A.
