Right now, while she is still young and eager to learn, teach her the seven important things about fine soap. They are: Purity, mildness, whiteness, fragrance, abundant lather, easy rinsing and "It Floats”.
THOSE who study human habits agree that
1 most of our good habits are formed before we are ten years old.
That is why the mother's watchful care and early teaching are so important.
Millions of mothers believe that Ivory Soap cleanliness is a basic part of their children's education. They use Ivory Soap from the very first — for the baby's bath, clothes, bottles, nipples and utensils.
Then the child begins to do things. And so, Ivory Soap washes doll clothes and doll faces. Of course, she takes her own bath with it, too.
Having learned these, she will probably use Ivory Soap always, because Ivory combines all seven.
For these same seven reasons you are probably now using Ivory today for your face and hands, for your bath, for your hair, and for laundering your silks, laces, woolens and other delicate garments.

EX.PRESIDENT WILSON WRITES
“ BUTCHER AND BANDIT”
an American Legion official, Mr.
John T. Taylor, denounces General Gregorio Semenoff, now in this country, as a cowardly butcher and bandit whose entry into this country is inimical to American institutions. A partial apologist for, Semenoff, President Barrows, of the University of California, who as a colonel of American forces in Siberia in 1918 saw something of Semenoff, declares that he is a great fighting leader, but also that he is "a human brute, a man to whom death is a jest."
There seems to have been a difference of opinion among our immigrant authorities as to whether General Semenoff was entitled to come into the country at all or whether his admission was irregular. At all events, it is agreeable to know that he came in only with permission to remain transiently and that when his various troubles are settled he proposes to leave for Europe, where, it is intimated, he may engage in new Russian plots of an imperialistic character. Certainly he cannot be more anxious to go than the American people are to have him go.
At the investigation before a Senate committee two American officers of high standing, General W. S. Graves, who commanded the American Expedition in Eastern Siberia, and LieutenantColonel Charles H. Morrow, General Graves's chief aide, both regular officers of high standing, testified that Semenoff slaughtered prisoners, that he even sent

The juxtaposition of speech and message is said to have appeared to many of the diners to have a serious political significance, although the message ascribed to the ex-President seems to us innocuously Delphic.
Reports published in the press that this message from Mr. Wilson might not be authentic drew forth the following letter to the New York “Times:"
2340 S. Street N. W.
12th April, 1922. My dear sir:
I notice in the issue of the Times this morning an article headed "Doubt is Cast on Wilson 'Message' to the Cox Dinner."
I write to say there need be no doubt about the matter. I did not send any message whatever to that dinner nor authorize anyone to convey a message.
I hope that you will be kind enough to publish this letter.
Very truly yours,
Concerning this letter from his former chief Mr. Tumulty has said:
If Mr. Wilson says the message was unauthorized then I can only say I deeply regret the misunderstanding which has arisen between us. I certainly would not have given the
