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.

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

the administration building, where the !
national flag was saluted with much [
cheering. As a litting conclusion of !
the night's enthusiasm the "army" !
divided itself into two squads on the j
campus and charged each other with j
broom clubs, canes and rakes. This 1
morning several of the less fortunate j
students are nursing badly swollen !

Thursday, April JOth, 1914
Afternoon 2:30 Evening 8:15
Addresses by Able Speakers at Both Sessions
Will Speak on Saturday, May 9,
at the Lehigh Valley
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!
