Music Lovers Amazed
Edison’s Daring Test
AQ told 2,000,000 music lovers on mote than 1500 different occasions have
gone to one of their local theatres filled with curiosity regarding a startlingly
novel recital which they were about to witness.
In each case they have come away amayd
at the almost unbelievable demonstration
which had taken place before their very
eyes, and ears—the most daring test of a
phonograph or talking machine ever made.
They saw a noted Edison artist stand beside

Presently die artist herself benn to ting note (br note with the matrument. Musically

According to the Government's
plans, a Students Army Training
Corps is to be organized in the South-
* eastern Normal at Durant, Oklahoma.
Young men, eighteen years of age
and over, thus will be given higher
educatoinal facilities while they are
preparing for military service. It is
the theory that in this fashion they
will be equipped to accept commis-
sions as officers in the army or to
perform services of unquestionable
importance in other fields. Need of
trained men will persist until the war
is ended and after. Dispatches from
Washington make it known that a
somewhat similar measure of voca-
tional education is planned for boys
of less than college age.
In compliance with this plan, Dr.
R. E. Vinson, Regional Director of the
Committee on Education and Special
Training of the War Department has
announced that the following are the
steps to be taken in entering the Stu-
* dents Army Training Corps:
1. Ail men eighteen years of age
and upward, on or about September
10th., will register for service in the
1 United States Army under the new
draft law.”
2. All men qualified to enter the
college classes of the Southeastern
Normal will enter the Normal on the
regular opening dates, September 9
and 10.
3. Students, eighteen years of age
and upward physically fit, who are
enrolled in the collage classes of the
Normal, may enter the Students Army
