Thursday afternoon, at her beau-
tiful home on West Shawnee street.
Mrs. Percy Wyly entertained a
party of ladies in honor of Mrs. E.
K Starr of Stilwell, who is visiting
Mrs. J. Robf. Wyly. While most of
the guests were past the half centurv
mark in age it would be impossi-
ble to call it an old ladies' party
because, it is said, some women have
very pronounced scruples against
being called old ladies, however it
was a very enjoyable affair. A
pleasant afternoon well spent with
no glorious reminiscences of the
past but instead the present issues,
the future developments, the neigh-
bors. styles, movies etc. were dis-
cussed. A hidden iXctrograph
would have betrayed more of au
up-to-date twentieth century young
womans' party . Mrs. Wyly was
assisted by Mrs. Robt. Wyly in ser-
ving a bcautifi 1 V lappnlnted .and
deliscious ref .-si ients and also,

trola concert wh u • .. sts had
an opportunity of L some of
the world's artists, among them the
most enjoyable, probably, was Harry
Lauder, the Irish commedian. Mrs.
W. T. Richards made the highest
score with the needle and received
the first honors, a very pretty sew-
ing basket. Mrs. N. S. McNair re-
ceived the booby prize, a pretty
crepe-de-chine handkerchief. Mrs.
Starr was presented with a silver
thimble as a guest's prize. Follow-
ing is the guest's list all close, per-
sonal friends of the guest of honor:
Mesdames E. M. Alberty, N. S. Mc-
Nair, W. T. Richards, Connie

and mother Mrs. Roth of Nashville,

Benge and E. W. Burlington.
Mrs. L. L. Leslie entertained Fri-
day afternoon in honor of her holi-
day guest, Miss Alma Swink of
Farmington, Mo. Auction bridge
afforded the amusement for the aft-
ernoon. The home was beautifully

CITIZEN ARMY PLANNED
The woman who loves and honors
her husband, loves her children, anfi
obeys the dictates of her conscience,
is the perfect type of womanhoou.
Press reports from Washington
announce that the war department
will urge upon congress that it is
vital that a definite statement of
military policy of the United States
be put. through at this session of
congress, and that machinery be
created for the organization of a
citizen army. It was learned au-
thoritatively that the administration
continental army plan is designated
to operate with either the volunteer
or the universal service system.
It is known that the continental
army plan is regarded in its present
form by its framers as a preparatory
measure paving the way to a de-
cision by the people at large *oT or
against a universal service.
While Secretary of State Garri-

sun has made no public declaration
of his opinion Assistant Secretary
Breckinridge who frequently has
spoken for his chief has clearly In-
dicated belief that universal service
is the only fair and democratic solu-
tion of the military problem con-
fronting the country. It has been
indicated that the military commit-
tees of congress will be formally
advised of this view at the coming
Great Britain's effort to carry j
on the war without rogort to con-
scription is being anxiously watch-
ed by the American war department
because army officers say the
United Kingdom's situation touches
at the root of conditions the United
States faces in carrying out the ad-
ministration army increas program,
If Great Britain decides for con-1
scription high officials suid today i
a long step will have been taken to-1
ward the time when universal scrv-:
ice will be generally accepted in the ,
United States as a national necessity, j
If Great Britain goes on with volun j
teers American officials feel that j
nothing short of a great military de-
feat would bring the 1'nited States
to universal service.
Entirely aside from its part in the
European war officials believe the
question of whether service with
the colors in time of need shall be
a legally recognized duty of citizen-
ship is of vital importance on this
side of the Atlantic.
