Stand by Treaty is Presic1
Washington, May 9.-A c.
the democratic party to go int
campaign standing four squa
favor of the treaty of Versaillt
against the senate's reservation
issued tonight by President "V
in a telegram to Oregon demo
leaders made public at the 1
House. Declaring that the part;
the "honor of the nation"
hands, the president said tha
Lodge reservations were "utter
consistent" with that honor as
as destructive of the rule o:
world leadership which the U
States must assume.
The only true Americanism
president said, "was that which.
America at the front of free na
and redeems the great proi
which we made to the world,
would be a violation of such p
ises, he said to attach reserva
to the treaty which "whittle it c
or weaken it as the republican 1
ers propose to do." The telegram
in response to the following mes
from G. E. Hamaker, of Portl
Ore., chairman of the Multono
county democratic central com
"Primary election May twe
first. Please wire whether you
sider it important to nominate ca
dates pledged to ratify Versa
treaty without Lodge reservatio
The reply of the; president folk
"I think it imperative that the ]
ty should at once proclaim itself
uncompromising champion of the
tion's honor and the advocate
everything that the United Sti
can do in the service of human
that it should therefore, endorse
support the Versailles treaty and
demn the Lodge reservations as
terly unconsistent with the nati(
honor and destructive of the wc
leadership which it had establish
and which all the free peoples of
world, including the great pow
themselves, had shown themsel
ready to welcome.
"It is time that the party sho
proudly avow that it means to t
without flinching or turning at a
-''time away from the path for r
sons of expediency, to apply mo
and Christian principles to the pn
lems of the world. It is trjjing to J
complish social, political and int
national reforms and is not daunt
by any of the difficulties it has
contend with. Let's prove to our li
associates in the war that at any rs
the great majority party of the n
tion, the party which expresses t
true hopes and purposes of the pe
pie of the country, intends to ke
faith with them in peace as well
in war. They gave their treasui
their best blood and everything th'
valued in order, not merely to be
Germany, but to effect a settleme
and bring about arrangements
peace which they have now tried
formulate in the treaty of Versaille
They are entitled to our support
this settlement and in the arrang
ments for which they have strive
The league of nations is the hope <
the world. As a basis for the armi
tice, I was authorized by all tl
great fighting nations to say to tl
enemy that it was our object in pn
posing peace to establish a gener;
association of nations under specif
covenants for the purpose of afforc
ing mutual guarantees of politic?
independence and territorial intej:
rity to great and small states alik<
and the covenant of the league of ni
tions is the deliberate embodiment c
that purpose in the treaty of peac<
The chief motives which led us t
enter the war will be defeated unies
that covenant is ratified and acte
upon with vigor. We cannot in hono
whittle it down or weaken it as th
republican leaders of the senate hav
proposed to do: If we are to exer
eise the kind of leadership to whicl
the founders of the republic lookei
forward and which they depende?
upon their successors to establish
we must do this thing with couragi
and unalterable determination. The:
expected the United States to be al
ways the . leader in the defence o:
liberty and ordered peace throughou
the world, and we are unworthy t<
call ourselves their successors unies;
We fulfill the great purpose they en
tertained and proclaimed.
"The true Americanism, the onlj
true Americanism, is that which puts
America at the front of free nations
and redeems, the great promises
"which we made the world when wc
enterei the war which was fought,
not for the advantage of any single
nation or group of nations, but foi
the salvation of all. It is in this way
we shall redeem the sacred blood
that was shed and make America the
force she should be in the counsels of
mankind. She cannot afford to sink
into the place that nations have usu
ally occupied and become merely one
of those who scramble and look
about for selfish advantage.
"The democratic party has now a
great opportunity to which it must
measure up. The honor of the nation
is in its hands.
"WOODROW WILSON." .
Senator Lodge, republican/ leader
in the senate, issued a brief state
ment after having heard President
Wilson's message to the Oregon
"I cannot undertake to discuss it
in detail," he said, <:but politically
speaking I am very glad he has tak
en the position he has. It fully jus
tifies all the opposition of the repub
lican party in the senate and those
who joined with the republicans."

Pepi o-Man gan Makes Rich, Red
Blood-Builds Up Women Who
How natural that the woman with
an abundant supply of vigor, health
and natural attractiveness should
compel the admiration of everyone
she meets and that she should enjoy
life to the utmost. Her magnetic
personality and personal charm make
J her the centre of attraction every
0::" course it is the desire of every
woman to be healthy and happy and
to make those around her happy, yet
many women who do not possess
good health accept that tired, worn
out, half exhausted feeling as their
lot, unconsciousness of the fact that
such poor health is often merely a
matter of the blood and that such a
condition can be remedied.
Pepto-Mangan is intended for just
such women. It contains thn very ele
ments1 tha tenrich the blood and in
crease the supply of the little red
blood cells which are so necessary. It
is these healthy little red-blood cells
that carry nourishment, strength, vi
tality and vigor to every part of the

exactly the same medicinal proper

Right cf Women to Fill Pulpits
Philadelphia, May 8.-Whether
women shall be allowed to fill the
pulpits of Presbyterian churches or
to act as elders, will be one of the
important questions considered at
the 132nd annual meeting 'of the
general assembly of the Presbyterian
church, beginning here May 20.
At the last general assembly a
special committee was appointed to
determine the views of the constitu
ency on whether women should hold
official position in the church organi
zation. Dr. S. Hall Young, chairman,
is withholding all information on the
report. A serious discussion is an
ticipated on the measure of the con
tinued participation of the church in
the Interchurch World Movement.
The New Era Movement, the In
terchurch World Movement, an or
ganized union of Christianity, the
relation of church and industry, and
the killing of Christians by Turks
are the most important subjects to
The 100th anniversary of the
Presbyterian board of education,
which now is combined with the col
lege board in the general board of
education, and fiftieth anniversary
of the women's board of foreign mis
sions will be observed in connection
with the meeting.
Dr. James Gray Bolton, chairman
of the publicity committee, points
out in connection with the new era
and interchurch movements that
from 1690 to 1919 the Presbyterian
church lias grown from ten ministers,
eighteen churches and 1,000 commu
nicants to 9,918 ministers, 9,805
churches and 1,603,033 members.
The communicants, who are those on
the roll in good standing, represent a
Presbyterian constituency of 6,000,
000, including baptized children and
adherents who are not members.
In 1789, the year in which appears
the first record of benevolence for
work outside the Presbytery or the
individual church, there was $852 de
voted to this purpose. In 1919 'the
amount contributed for benevolence
Dr. John McDowell, secretary of
the board of home missions and di
rector of the department of social
service in the New Era Movement,
will submit an exhaustive report on
the relation of the church to indus
try. This is in accord with directions
given at the preceding general as
Dr. McDowell has conferred with
employers and employees. His effort,
has been to reconcile differences
alpng Christian lines. Establishment
of1 schools for foremen is one sugges
tion he makes, in belief that fore
men are frequently the cause of
