THE ALLIED CO.NFEKEXCE
Representatives of all the Allied
nations will soon gather at Paris to
discuss the important questions deal
ing with the prosecution of the war
against the common enemy. The safe
arrival of the United States com-
1k mission at a British port has been an
nounced and the great task of lay
ing plans for future action will soon
be started upon.
While the exact matters to be dis
cussed are being kept secret, it is
known that the general aim of the
conference is to secure greater co
operation between the Allies. The
keynote to the success that has at
tended the German and Austrian arms
has been the close unity of action
since the very outset of the struggle.
In contrast 'to this, the Allies hae
been hampered by the lack of central
authority, resulting in loss of ef-
ficiency and many defeats.
A "full and frank discussion" of the
plans and needs of the various bellig
erents is desired by the United States,
according to Secretary Lansing who
realizes that the vast resources of this
nation will not bring the results that
they should unless the Allies are in
harmony in each war move. The fact
that the conference is to be held for
the discussion of only war matters is
of special significance. Tangible re
sults that will be followed by greater
activities by Allied arms on all fronts
After three jears of fighting, the
Allies have learned the truth of the
maxim "United we stand, divided we
fall." The calling of this special con
ference is one of the most momentous
steps taken .to bring the war to a
decisive close. Each moe and word
of the commissioners will be eagerly
noted by the millions of persons who
stand for the rights of humanity and

Not more than twenty per cent of
the revenue necessary to run the
country in 191S will come from taxes.
The remaining eighty per cent will be
bonds. The greatest question the
new Congress will have to decide will
be how to meet the necessity for a
broad and comprehensive system of
taxation to pay the bonds and at the
same time finance the country.

LET'S HAVE MORE DAYLIGHT
The Borland Daylight Saving Bill
was passed by the Senate on June 27.

will be taken up in December. More
daylight will improve working condi

sunlight and less by artificial light;
industrial accidents will be lessened

A power that has been sought by

for years is explained to some extent
in the little book of sixty-five pages,
"How to Study," by George Fillmore
Swain, LL.D., Gordon McKay pro
fessor of civil engineering in Harvard
and the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. The opening statement
of the book, "Education is an oppor
tunity, nothing more," is to some ex
tent an index to what the remainder
of the book contains. Doctor Swain
emphasizes the necessity for being in
the proper attitude to master a sub
ject, he'shows why it is necessary to
study with a power of understanding,
and he also tells of the necessity for
concentration and the forming of
habits of study.

HE HELPS CITIES GET COAL
At Mokane Crosslej Directed Mayor
to "Borrow It"
Columbia and other nearby towns,
Centralia, Mexico, Mokane, Moberly
and Jefferson City, are among the
twenty-five places which have been
furnished relief from coal shortage
by Wallace Crossley, state fuel ad
ministrator, according to a dispatch
from Jefferson City. Mayor Earl R.
Hodges of Mokane, in Callaway Coun
ty, called up Mr. Crossley and told
him the town was out of coal. Hodges
said the Missouri, Kansas & Texas
Railroad had a large quantity stored
there and would neither sell or lend
responsible citizens a supply to re
lieve immediate necessities. Mr.
Crossley advised the mayor to forcibly
"borrow" five tons from the railroad,
if it could not otherwise be obtained.

Phelps County. Here he will con
duct a campaign for the rest of the
week. During the first three dajs of
next week, he will conduct a similar

ject of the campaigns is to urge the
farmers to select the proper kind of
seed corn and to store it for next
year so that better seed will be as
sured. These campaigns are particu
larly improtant now because of the
