TO THE ANGELS OF THE N . V . A . By EARLE REMINGTON HINES Long do we wander in the wilderness , In search of that vain thing called happiness ; Bruised are our feet , and blistered by the sand , But still we fare on to the Promised Land . A moments rest in some green oasis , A draught of love to quaff , a taste of bliss , Then up and on our way with faces set—Love may be sweet , but oh , the-end s not yet , At last the truth dawns on the soul . We arc but part of one tremendous whole . The J in me must sec the I in you ; ¦ The One in all—the least , the greatest Joo . The end is near , life is once more worth while , When we see Heaven in a baby s smile .

| DONT RIDICULE YOUR OWN PROFESSION By BUEL GABBERT ( The Gabberts ) With the rise of Vaudeville from the medieval storeroom show , into a place of its own , supreme in its particular and favored form of amusement , is it not only right , but wholly fitting that the few things remaining obstructive to its colossal and magnificent progress be eliminated that it may proceed to a still higher estimation iri the public s mind . Rarely can another industry point so proud a finger at its progress as can Vaudeville of today . It fills the newest and best theatres of the land , where people of all classes congregate to see the last word in art and who extol its merits as they pass out the door when the curtain is down . Nothing has been spared — nothing stinted in placing it paramount to all other sorts of amusement . Therefore , is rt riot right but wholly fitting that the artist who depends upon the ridicule of his profession for , his gags and his laughs dig deepinto the archive of humor...
