Aboard President Wilson's Special paig
Train-From the Capital at Washing- this
ton to the far Pacific coast the Presi- exte
dent of the United States has jour- lahc

ever undertaken by a chief executive Is E
of the nation. be 1
To discuss national questions, many dret
presidents have toured the land; but will
Mr. Wilson is laying before America hea
a question whiich affects the whole line
world-the question of whether or not G
we are to join in the Ler ue of Na- phy
itions; whether we are to forget our will
former isolation and share with the will
other peoples of the earth the respon- trai
sibilities of maintaining civilization spe
and preventing, as he says we can do, t
future warfare. hed
Between the capital and the coast aid
the president made fifteen speeches
and half a dozen brief talks. All of rec
100,000 fellow citizens listened to him. wo
Several millions had the chance to see tor
him, and apparently everyone wanted oth
to see him, from those who thronged ent
the streets of the cities and towns hot
where he stopped, to those who came acc
to the rail.ide or stood at little flag aec
stations in remote places, knowing oqu
their only reward could be a fleeting a
glimpse and a wave of the hand. in
He has met and talked to all types Re
,of citizens-to men big in the busi- Ins
ness, financial and professional worlds, Ila'
.to farmers and mechanical workers, lab
to Indians and cowboys and foreign
born herders and rangers, to soldiers LO
and to mothers who lost soldier-sons
in the late war.
What do they all tell him? unani- 1
mously they say they want peace ,
definitely settled, they want no more six
wars, they want the League of Na- mE
:tions, and most of the American peo- the
ple, it may be fairly raid, tell the of
President they want the League just if
.as it is, without the reservations or lot
amendments which certain senators ar
have insisted upon. The majority of wl
;citizens say to those who interview St
them on this tour:
"Woodrow Wilson guided us rightly in
before and during the war with Ger- tb
many. We entered that war, every- 'ti
one agrees, to end all wars. He says vE
-the league can do that. We want to in
do that, so let us keep on trusting him h
and get the league into operation as V
soon as possible. Forget politics." .B
Most Americans encountered on the 0
tour have forgotten politics. Repub
;ilcan Governors and Mayors have in- H
:troduced the President to his audi- la
:ence; the Major part of the local com
mittees which have met him have Is
4een Republicans. They have all said: N
"We are nothing but Americans, Mr. U
I4r. Wilson's arguments for the '
;league, briefly summarized, are those: C
Trhere can be no peace, either now
'or in the future, without it. There t
can only be a regrouping of nations
and a new "Balance of Power," which
is certain to lead to war. There can
be no war in the future, with the a
.league in existence, because no single
,nation would defy the united rest of
mankind, and if it did, it could be n
brought to terms by an economic 1
boycott, and without the use of arms.
There can be no reduction in the
cost of living until the league is es- a
tablished, for nations will not go
ahead with peace time production un.
til they know that peace is definitely
assured and that production of war
material is no longer necessary. i
There can be wonderful prosperity,
with the league in existence, for rel
ations of labor and capital all over
the world will be made closer and
more friendly, and the worker will re
ceive a fairer share of what he pro
These declaration of the president,
logically and eloquently put, have left
his hearers thinking and thinking
deeply. And then Mr. Wilson has
pointed out, the people themselves, as
differentiated from senators and politi,
clans, seem to want just what the
president wants, which is America for
SQuite as unusual as the purpose of
the cross country tour is the manner
in which it is being carried out and
the completeness of the arrange
ments on the nine car train which is
bearing the party.
"At the rear is the private car May

Mrs. Wilson. Next is a compartment

This is devoted to the upkeep of si,
twenty-five rescue homes and ma- wo

question of child welfare occupie= :0
a very -i nminent place," Lieut. ('ol. fry
George Wood, who is in charge of W1
Salvation -Army activities in the w
'Southwcs-t, said recently. "The funds w.
raised in the Home Service cam
jpaigns nolw being put on throughout tl
this ieriitory will make possible the gi
extension of this work in Texas, Ok- ft
lahoma, and Louisiana." a
Wherever a Salvation Army corps 5f
is established. special provision will Ic
be made for the welfare of the chil1- 0
dren. The new community buildings Ia

only seventy-five. It also maintains
a home for children in San Antonio
in connection with the San Antonio

institutions will be enlarged and sim
filar ones will be established in Ok

T OES BIG WORK
From 600 to 1,000 men pDaced in
positions every year is the record
of one of the smallest in-titutions
in Dallas, Texas-smallest that is in
size of the building occupied not in
work accon:plished-the little Salva
tion Army Store at 1513 1 'yi'
stre tl. This store occup:iing a ~:na'
twenty foot front shed is v!s tJ'
daily by scores of the Dallas 10oo:
Adjutant John Wood w'hl is ir
cha:g" estimates the number pat
:onizing the Store every day at
from 60 to 100. Because of its couta 1
wth so many men who are out o
work. calls are made on the Store
when all kinds of help are wanted.
But placing men in jobs is not
the main purpose of this Store . It
gathers up old clothes, magazines.
furniture, everything that may have
a see :nd-hand value. The books ar;
sent .o cheer up the soldiers in th
lonely army posts on the barl"r
over i600 have been sent down in th
last six month-. The m:igazine
and cld newspapers are sold to the
r waste mills. The old clothes and
furniture are fumigated, sorted over
r and then displayed for sale in the
s little Store.
a Just enough to charged for these
.1 things to cover the expenses of th
e Store. The fact that even a nominal
e price/is charged keeps the Store
c1 from being regarded as a charitable
1. institution by the poor themselves.
k They are able to patronize it with
i- no loss of self-respect when they
can feel that they are paying for
e what they get. Even the street labor
i. er with his wages of $2 and $2.5
d a day can outfit his family at a cost
. of a few cents a g.'!"- t. A
a wcnan's dress costs twenty-fiv'
h cents, a child's fifteen, and shier
cost from ten cants to fil.y ce'tts
r A man's shirt costs only fifteen
cents and collars and cravats are
o given away.
An old trunk of collars stand
near the door ready for all the me"
who need them. "Many a jnh ha
been gotten out of that trunk of cc
lars," Mrs. Wood said the othe: day.
"Men come in here who canno g't
a job a, long as they are dirty, and
yet they have no money to buy
clean clothes. We tell them to help
themselves to a collar and a tie
s and we give them a clean shirt if
we have one. Often they ask to put
them on in our little back room.
Then they go out, looking peat and
soon find work.",
Whenever a poor person comes
e into the store who is not able to
ps ay for the things he needs, Adju
tant or Mrs. Wood insist upon giving
them the necessary articles without
the payment of the small price. No
od money is ever accepted from crip
'Ip ples. These ,people are told to save
their money for a time of need.
No charge is ever made for the
ry food which is often donated. The
o- other day a baker gave 200 loaves
in of bread which had been left over
da. from Saturday until Monday. This
of bread was stacked on the counters
k, of the store and everyone coming in
of was told to help himself.
ol- Wih the general extension of Sal
' vation Army work throughout the
ng country, it is planned to establish
yn, such second-hand stores a· the one
he in Dallas in all cities of Texas, Ok
au- lahoma and Louisiana where an Ar
of my Corps is established and whic'
f is big enough to maintain such a
the store. The only other store in this
Al- territory at present is located at Fort
W. Vorth, Texas.
