LONGER LIFE LEASE
AIM AT" EMANCIPATING
WOMEN FROM WASH-TUB
Washington, June 20.—Presi-
dent Wilson has in mind the is-
suance of a proclamation declar-
ing the army of the United States
demobilized when Germany signs
the peace treaty. Germany is
expected to sign the treaty June
If she signs it on that date or
before June 30, and the president
issues his proclamation of demobi-
lization, the result will be that
prohibition will be postponed until
the constitutional amendment take
effect next January.
This highly important informa-
tion was bt ined from sources
close to 1.3 Wh;te'House. It may
be relied n . : : representing the
present state of the president^
mind and a certain forecast of his
action unless some unforeseen
difficulty develops to change his
The president is said to be ac-
tuated by a variety of motives. In
the first place he is said to believe
that it would only be fair to the
interests affected to allow them
additional time to wind up their
affairs. Moreover, such action
would ease the situation and
lighten the burded of taxation.
Those from whom this interest-
ing information was obtained de-
nied that the president was being
influenced by the attitude of the
American federation of Labor
which went on record last \\ ieek
urging the repeal of the war time
It has been intimated that if the
president met labor's wishes on
the subject of prohibition legisla-
tion he would strengthen labor's
friendly feeling toward his league
of nations policy.

The Norman laundry, in com- j
mon with their neighbors j
in other cities throughout
the United States, has launched j
a movement for the emancipation
of housewives from the family
wash-tub. The wash-tub has
been branded by them a "relic
of the dark ages of housekeeping.'
A feature of the enterprise will
be a campaign of education to
wean womenfolk away from old
prejudices against the laundry,
and to acquaint them at the same
time with the notable progress
that has been made by the indus-
-try within the last decade.
"The enterprise is not intended
to be revolutionary undei-taking,"
stated a nationally known laun-
dry leader, "it is simply the com-
ing to pass of something that has
been long expected. It is a part,
really, of what may be termed the
'feministic' advance of the age.
"We no longer look upon wo-
men as mere menials. Our new
conception of them is as help-
mates and companions, with equal
social and civic privileges. Wo-
men are barred from quick reali-
zation of this finer future, how-
ever, by such' unnecessary duties
as the family wash, that alone
| take upVfrom one and one-half to
two days of the week.
"The laundry industry, from
one end of America to the other,
is offering to take over this bur-
den just as the spinner and weav-
er long ago took over the business
of making clothes; in fact as a
hundred items of household drud-
gery have been taken over by in-
"We propose to indicate to the
women of America the progress
that has been made by the laun-
dry industry; we will show them
for example, that while in its
fundamentals the home-washing
process has changed but little
since the time of Noah, the laun-
dry has improved until it has be-
come not alone a cleanser of
clothes, but a conserver of fhem
"Once the American housewife
discovers that it is safe and eco-
nomical to send the family wash
to the laundry, the most burden-
some of household tasks will be
abolished from the home forever.
"A freer womanhood—a clean-
er America—these are the mo-
tives behind the movement for
educating women to use of the
modern laundry for their family
Summer is a mistake sand-
wiched in between the seasons of
the year, and is utilized chiefly
by country landlords, mosquitoes,
flies and numerous other small in-
sects. You can tell when summer
is gone by the disappearance of
straw hats, although you can't
tell where it is gone and you rare-
ly care to. The ice companies
abhor summer because it makes
their employees work so hard.
All well-regulated cities are sur-
rounded by beaches, which are in
turn surrounded by verandas.
Here are found fourteen-dollar-a- |
i week clerks, both masculine and
feminine, also common, vho make
I themselves worth while by stimu- j
i lating the diamond and paste ;
i markets. You can tell a really
j hot day in summer by looking
! carefully at the thermometer;
, moreover, any kind friend will
tell you a hot day in summer with j
1 usually a few adjectives added.
A peculiar thing about this sea-
son is that when the thermometer
is hovering about zero certain peo-
ple have been known to express
their preference of seasons in its
favor. This is a sign of mental
; decreptitude and should be treat-
i ed accordingly. Summer's only-
rivals are the Christmas season
and moving day. In the summer
time cool weather can be sought
in any country resort, but it
might be added in an undertone
that such cool weather win not ue
found. Every year contains at
least one summer.

| vices of the summer term, which

o'clock, Dr. C. N. Ferris will speak

on "The New Citizenship." There
will be good music under the di-
rection of Joe Benton. It is ex-
pected these vesper services will
be held every Sunday afternoon
tluring the summer.

Owning A Home
Where you may improve the house or sur-
roundings—the lawn, the garage or plant
flowers and trees to meet your requirements,
and sense of beauty—without that ever-expect-
ing call from the landlord with an increased
rent receipt—where you really begin to live.
In owning a home you develop the desire for better
surroundings; that feeling of civic pride that builds better
cities and makes better citizens.
You can own your home as easily as you can rent,
and you can build now as cheaply as in the future. Build-
ing materials will not decline in price for many years.
Consult your banker, some loan company, or consult its, but decide t<
build now. We will gladly give you estimates on the home you have in mind
and render you any assistance we can.
Call on us and discuss the possibilities of a home of your own. Our lone
experience may be of assistance to you.
