OIVE THAT THEY MAY LIVE
Give that they may not perish this
will be the unspoken appeal in the
heart of every American man, woman
and child the next few days. There
is not in this country of ours one
person, who would willingly allow a
little child to starve, if he had the
means to prevent it. Yet, if we Amer
icans do not answer this call of the
Near East, we are allowing millions
df little children to starve.
These people have been the help
less victims of a cruel war and they
have suffered many privations which
have made them unable to help them
selves. The fortune of war has been ours,
Victory is ours, and today America is
by far the wealthiest country In the
world. From this wealth, we must take
care of our unfortunate neighbors, so
it is the duty of America to give and
to give freely that these neighbors of
ours in the Near East may not perish.
And again Germany is crying for
"Justice". How she would cry if she
UP TO THE SENATE
"Will the League of Nations be taken
as a party issue by tne Senate? It
was Taft our last Republican presiT
dent, who attempted to work out this
plan, even before the war started. Wil
son put the Idea into a more concrete
form and introduced it at the Peace
Conference at Versailles. He won his
point and now it is up to the Senate
The Senate is sure of being Republi
can after March 4 and it will be up
up to it to decide the issue. Surey it
will stand behind the President.
If it does not, the whole plan will,
no doubt, be abandoned. Europe now
understands the importance of having
the United States included in the pact,
which interests Europeans more than
Refusal would show that the people
are not behind the President. It would
mean that the war had been a failure
from this nation's standpoint.
The two specified volunteer days for
the Armenian-Syrian drive have
passed but still give your share volun
tarily. It will help the cause both fi
nancially and otherwise.
The weather has been called the
vestibule of conversation. It might
almost be called the vestibule of hap
piness, for as the weather is, so are
our spirits. It takes an uncommon
amount of joyousness to overcome the
effect of a dark, damp day, and he is
truly a grouch, who can remain dis
gruntled when the sun is shining and
the air is sparkling.
(Weather has made the fortune of
some persons and some places. Cali
fornia! It means fair weather to our
minds and all that goes with the fair
est of fair weather; oranges, sun
light, happy days and good health. We
call it weather from day to day; cli
mate when we think in terms of years.
Someone else has said that without
the weather 999 persons out of every
1,000 would have nothing to talk about.
The Government is willing to pay
thousands of dollars a year playing
with the weather. Without our rain
and sunshine, hail and high thermome
ters, this life would be as dreary and
monotonous as as a fog.
While we are hurrahing for Hoover
we might give credit to our fellow
Missourlan, David Franklin Houston,
Secretary of Agriculture. His work
has not been as spectacular as Mr.
Hoover's, but it was 100 per cent ef
The famed flat foot was the cause
of only 1.3 per rent of the rejections
for service, medical figures show. Cold
feet casualties have never been com
piled, but, judging by slacker mar
riages and othor indications, 'their
percentage was much higher.

TO SELL VAX BIBBER TATERX
D. A. R.'s Wish to Preserve Historic
Inn Will Be Auctioned.
The old Van Bibber Tavern, one of
the historic structures of this section
of Missouri, located on the old Daniel
Boone trail near Mineola Springs, east
of Fulton, is to be sold at public auc
tion February 22. It is a part of the
estate of the late William Crane.
Announcement of the sale has caused
tho chapters pf Daughters of the
American Revolution of Calaway and
a number of nearby counties to take
steps to have the old landmark pre
served. The D. A. R's have decided
to try to induce the Craine estate to
turn over the building to their organi
zation. The old tavern was erected by Colo
nel Van Bibber, a pioneer MIssourian,
and was for a long time the most pre
tentious structure in this part of the
state. Colonel Van Bibber's table was
an extremely popular one with travel
ers, and not only Daniel Boone but
many other prominent early-day Mis
sourians often stopped at the Inn.
Former Governor Elliott W. Major
was entertained about six years ago
at the Van Bibber Tavern, at a good
