I MEROM ITI JAZZ
PARIS, F*Jb. 27. Frensh proof of the ingenuity and recon reef illness of the American soldier in France was given the other night at La Rochelle. An army quartet had been billed to play for the soldiers at the Young Men’s Christian Association hut there. The train failed to come, after the manner of trains in France. John J. Anderson of Dallas. Tex., the Y. M. C. A. secretary at La Pallice, near La Rochelle, explained the matter to the audience.
Immediately an impromptu jazz quartet was organized. One performer played on two pieces of sand paper, anoth* r on a piece of tin, the third with an automobile horn, and the fourth tried to make music with a leg of a chair.
With these instruments* the jazz hand “played” tee popular music of the United States, to the great amusement of the audience. Heated disputes as to what they were playing occupied large place on the evening’s program. They were so popular however, that their audience refused to allow them to stop, until the regular performers arrived, and even then they continued to play, to the accompaniment of a drum, a mandolin, a violin and a piano.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.. Feb. 27.
Work on proposed road legislation represented in bills and resolutions now before both house and senate 11 will begin in earnest Friday morning |f at ll o’clock, which time was set by J5 Hie senate this evening to consider | various propositions. This was agreed J | I upon in the senate following a re- | port offered by the senate committee, § on roads and highways which sought | to have adopted the committee’s rec-1 = ouituendaiion to pass the senate res- § olution providing for a $50,000,000 | bond issue.
Senator Thomas presented as a uii- ta nority substitute his legislative bill J| which does not propose any bond is-, \ sue. but provides for a system of. | roads to be constructed with surplus I from the state to be met by the ted- j oral funds to be used for such pur- | poses. Senator Board, who is sup- j = potting the senate resolution and the J l>ond issue, objected to the Titanias j subtsitute on the ground that if it j = should be adapted by tlae senate it would place it before the body without ever having been considered by the committee. It was agreed on motion of Senator Kerr to lay the whole matter over and make it the special order for 11 o’clock Friday.
It is realized that the end of the session is coming and that road legislation must be perfected within a few days if there is to be any at all.
