ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 7.—Gen. K. M. Van Zandt, of Fort Worth, Tex., commander in chief of the United Confederate Veterans, and Carl Hin-
ton of Denver, Colo., commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, arrived late last night to make final preparations for the opening here today of the confederate reunion.
With the leaders of the two organizations and preceding them came hundreds of the men who wore the gray, nearly all of them in the uniforms of their organization and wearing the southern cross of honor. Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and of the women's organizations added to the crush at the stations and in hotel lobbies. Scores of maids and sponsors of the various organizations from Virginia to Texas, added a touch of gaiety and youth to the gathering. Scores of high officers of the organization came in during the day, including General Van Zandt’s staff.
The visitors found Atlanta decorated more gaily than its citizens had ever seen it before. Eighty-five city blocks of streets were aflutter with flags and bunting. Boy Scouts and members of the American Legion gave aid and directions to the ! visitors. Ten thousand of them will i be cared for at Piedmont park in ‘ army tents and others housed in hotels and private homes. Special arrangements have been made to feed the veterans.
The veterans and members of the auxiliary organizations will be formally welcomed this afternoon, and business sessions started later. A great parade Friday will be the crowning feature of the reunion.

How the pathetic little ones “carry on” when the hypocritical matron is trying to make them “show off” for the trustees of the institution; how they go on strike against prunes; and how Judy Abbott (the suushiny little orphan played by Miss Pickford) aided by a freckled-face little boy, play tricks upon the matron’s daughter, are only a few of the humorous episodes in which the picture abounds.
As well as being a picture which will tug at the heart strings of every parent, “Daddy Long Legs.” will make the children and the childless elders laugh, for there are dozens of sweet and funny little children in it, who play the parts of orphans in the great home where the early part of the action is laid.

It is important that each Chapter be represented, Red Cross officials say, because of the fact that in launching the campaign exclusively for memberships the co-operation of the smaller as well as the larger communities must be obtained.
The delegates from Ada are J. T. Crawford and M. F. Manville.
