John It. Mott, general secretary
of the international Y. M. C. A., In out
lining the oigunlznl Ion's plans for
helping to reconstruct wiir-ravaged

ninety holidays n year, besides Sun
days, and Uouuinnhi has probably
twice that number. "This mentis Idle

declares tho American.

Daniel C. Itoper, United States

answer makes this suggestion:
"It is my contention that with a
I.engiu of Nations for tho encourage
ment of future peace, wo would lie
nblo to glvo thereby to future goner
ntlons a quid pro quo for the money
spent for the war, and we could, with
propriety, then extend thu tax burden
further Into tho future.
"I ulso have the conviction that
