DRESS WELL RECEIVED
IE.-Gov. J. Y. Sanders was here Sat
unlrday and at 2 :30 he addressed a large
lathlrhng of lienville Parish ,itizeun'
at the court house, on the subject of
"A League of Nations." lion. W. 1).
(Goff acted as chairman of the meeting
and Dr. J. M. Mosley with a brief but
eloquent talk, presented the speaker.
4 ov. Sanders did not attempt to
take up separately each article of the
league plan, but laid stress upon the
beneftits to the world of a League of
Nations. He said we could not hope
that through such a league war
could be abolished entirely from the
world, but rather that the plan of
fered a waly of settling the differences
that might arise between nations with
out resorting to force of arms.
Ile stated that the greatest difficulty
in gettinig the various nations to ac
(elit the plan for a league of nations
is that it is something new. The same
difficulties arose when the colonies
gainlig their independance from Eng
laud, desired to unite some slld of
league to protect themselres, drafted
the ('olstitutioli of tile l'nited States.
Its ratification by the various inde
l)pendelnt (cololnies or states was fought
as bitterly as the present league plan.
blecause it was new and untried. Its
adoption did not prevent thel civil war.
yet doubtless had not the colonies
hound themselves together under the
colnsitutiol, there would have bIeenl
c(lontiluous strife 'alnd bloodshed be
tween the states.
Mr. Sanders stated that the league
pl)lan was an Amerlean idea. and
originated by Anlerica's urea lest mills.
and should be backed up by American
people, who by (en.tering the war. sav
ed the world from Prussianisin and

spokesman. presented to the Parish of
Bienville. a large service flag, on which
was a star for every Bienville Parish
soldier who enltered the service as a
volunteer or through induction by the
draft. Those who were killed or died
from other causes while in service
were represented on the flag by a gold
star; the others by one of blue. In
all there were 40 gold stars and be
tween 800 and 000 Ilue ones.
