Whereas The owners f the rail-

ters that hundreds of thousands of
people are today out of employment
niih no means of support and
Whereas The organized charities
ate unable to cope with the situation
or relieve the sufferings of such vast
11 umbers. Therefore be it
Kesolved That we call upon the city
council the county commissioners and
governor of the slate to take immedi

needed improvements on streets roads
and public 'buildings and establish
fug municipal aud state industries

Whereas The owners of Die trans-
portation systems and the large mills

weeks discharged many thousands of

tion the workers are shorn of thelr-
chaslng power and the business of the

Everybody loves a barefoot little
girl -so declares this charming type
of the American stage betauty Isabella
Ixiwe who by the way hails from
"How does she know?" asks the
poor untutored member of the lay cult.
Simple enough Xliss Lowe goes
foot herself. On the s'r?el? Oh no
just on the stage and her shapely
i ankles and well cured 2-D feet have
many an envious feminine tongue wag-
ging on the subject of'fate's bountiful
generosity to some folks.
.Miss Ixwe plays the stellar role of
"June" the primitive mountain girl
In Kugene Walter's "The Trail of the
"In 'June' Nature seems to have
blended all her moods" says Xliss
Lowe describing the character she
portrays "in her the fierceness of
the tempest rages with the fury of the
volcanic funnel as it enwraps the
mountain peak. The joy of the rippling
brook and the delightful peace of the
twilight are all exemplified in the ever-
changing moods of this barefoot lass."
"June is a child of nature. To her
the breezes carry messages from the
tree tops and the flowers look up with
appealing glances that bring her words
of cheer and love.
"Would such a girl wear shoes? I
think not. The very wildness in which
she communes so lovingly with nature
would revolt at the idea and half the
beauty of the atmosphere which Mr.
Walter has so deftly painted around
her wistful self would be lost by the
addition of calfskins to her dainty feet.
That's why I love to run barefoot on
the stage w hen I'm playing June."
Xliss Lowe is said to be one of the
real beauties of the stage. Her inter-
pretation of the role of "June" in "The
Trail of the Lonesome Pine" marks
her as one of the most promising stars
rtt the stage.
