U. S. INTO WAR
Hughes' Election A Dire Cat
astrophe, Thinks Senator
Would Mean Repudiation Of Wilson's
Policy Of Peace Roosevelt's
Influence Regarded As
Washington, Aug. 29 Reviewing
tho record of the Democratic adminis
tration, Senator Reed of Missouri, told
tho senato today that tho Republican
party demanded a change, which, If
grnnted by tho people, would mean
tho precipitation of America into war
and the undoing of national prosper
ity built up by industrial commercial
and banking reforms during tho term
of President Wilson.
"If Mr. Hughes is to ho elected to
tho presidency," said Senator Reed,
"then it Is notice to all tho world that
Amorlca has repudiated Wilson's pol
icy of peace for tho Roosevelt-Hughes
policy of war.
"Let tho lssuo be not misunder
stood. Wo know, tho world knows,
that Woodrow Wilson will maintain
peace unless the nation's honor is as
sallod. Thoughful men know that a
president advised by Roosevolt, In
accord and agreement with Roose
velt, will stir up war if war bo pos
sible." Senator Reed referred to Mr.
Hughes' criticisms of the administra
tion's policy and reviewed tho utter
ances of Mr. Roosevolt since tho war.
Ho doclared Mr. Hughes "In complete
accord with a man who has persist
ently insisted wo should have inter
vened against Germany when she In
vaded Belgium; in complete accord
with a man who refers in coarse lan
guage io the president as a 'molly
coddle,' a man of 'weasol words'; in
complete accord with a man who
falsely asserts that wo wore bound by
treaty to engage In tho conflict against
Germany; in complete accord with a
man who demands universal military
service and war preparation upon a
scale not hitherto dreamed of."

FOR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
EXPECTED IN TWO WEEKS
NOON-DAY LUNCHEON OF OR
GANIZATION AN INFORMAL
Informality prevailed on every hand
at the noon-day luncheon Wednesday
of the chamber of commerce. Formal
Bpeech-making was tossed aside and
such talking as was done was from
chairs. An enjoyable get-together dis
cussion was thus held.
Comment was made on the fact
that the chamber will be without a
secretary pending the arrival of a
now man to fill 'this ofllco, as former
Secretary Leopold went to Dayton the
first of tho week, having resigned.
The question was raised whether
tho luncheons should be discontin
ued until a new secretary arrives.
The sentiment was strongly against
any such step, mombors present ex
pressing themselves forcibly.
Plans were discussed for placing
the room in a moro nttractlvo shape,
so that advantage would bo taken of
it for rest room purposes. It was
suggested that a reading room, prop
erly Advertised, would bo greatly ap
preciated. Vlco President McCrackln stated
that it is not known at present who
the new secretary of the local cham
ber will bo. Mr. McKeand, head of
tho service company which Installed
tho local organization, has promised
to have a suitable man hero within
two wooks. It seems that, owing to
tho largo number of chambers of com
morco being organized, tho demand
for efficient secretaries exceeds the
supply. Tho salaries paid are high
and tho field Is a splendid one for a
young man with ability.
