IN RED CROSS SERVICE.
Edwin H. Baker, Jr, who was in

of the chamber of commerce was one
of the speakers at the chamber of
commerce banquet Monday night. He
related some of his experiences in the
service in Italy. This was at the time
of tho Piave attack last June when
the Austrians had broken through. He
gave the Italians credit for their dog
ged courage, which he said was much
like the bulldog tenacity of the Brit
ish. One of the harrowing experi
neces which he mentioned was a mid
night drive without a light along a
winding mountain trail, 1,000 feet
down on one side and 1,000 feet up on
the other when- the only way to tell
where to drive was to stick out the
right hand to feel the camouflage on
the side of the road, while in con-
stant danger of being hit by camions
coming the opposite way. He lost
only three mud guards and considered
himself lucky on this trip,
In tho latter part of his service Mr.
Baker saw the heroic light of the
Italians to take Mount Grappa, which
was only done after the most desper
ate display of courage on the part of
the Italians, who six times took the
mountain, six times lost it, and held
it on the seventh Mr. Baker said h
had seen with his own eyes such
fiendish atrocities as demanded the
He was listened to with much in

Increasing Territory Production.
Let us start with production. The
purchasing power of our 'rade terri
tory is in direct ratio to the money
value of its products. s we In
crease purchasing power, and as we
increase business. Tha thins to be
determined then Is whether the farm
ers in our irado territory are making"
the most of their opportunities, and if
not, why not. If you can help him by
extend ng his market you wili increase
With a view to Increasing produc
tion Chambers of Commerce In some
agricultural communities have been
instrumental in orgnnizlns co-opera-t've
asssociation that buv at the mar
ket price anything the farmer brings
into town. These asocv.tions are
stck companies, the stock being held
by farmers pnd merchants and profits
are distributed as dhndends on the
stork. They are eou'pped tr do bus
iness in the most business like way.
Checks paid for produco ar-? good in
any "store in town. The advantage to
ihe farmer Is that he is sure of a
market for Anything ho raises. He
does nor have to sell at a loss nor
carry anything back home.
Another means of bringing the
farmer into better relationship with
the business men is tVi community
house. This is a building In which is
provided rest room for farmers' wives,
nursery for the children, reading room,
auditorium, checking room for par
cels and yard space for the varking of
automobiles end vehieiaa.
Next to production, lot us take In
dustry. Pay rolls are Important In
Hie life of any industrial community.
The more the better, and the bigger
the better, provided we rto- not dam
age the goose that lavs the golden
egg. Our Chamber of Commerce
must look into the subjects of indus
trial relations co-operative competi
tion as opposed to cut thioat compe
tition, foreign trade anil ihe like We
must plan and execute for better bus
iness unner rotter condiions. We must
understand that Capital, management
and labor are the thre-3 legs of the
iuvi upon wnicn industry rests.
In commerce, or retail ir.irte nw can
promoto classes in salesmanship and
courtesy to customers, have a com
mittee tor the arbitration of business

promote co-cierative advo-tising in

bring the people Into town, control

to Increase r.nd protect business.

Welfare of Individual.

we come to the welfare -if the indi

business and provide it with facilities
Tho very foundation cf food busi

Having denned the functions of a
Chamber of Commerce and adopted a
programme of activities the next step
is to appoint committees to carry out
the programme. Your Chamber of
Commerce Is a pro'ect organization.
Tour committees should be selected
with due consideration of their abili
ties, to carry out the projects. Thev
must be eomi.-osed of men wh have

whom the p.iblic has conficIer,re. When
their work is done they must be dis

In securing membership there is one
th'ng that ou should l'-car in mind.
Personnel is even more important than
numbers. You cannot afford to accent
ny and everybody as a member. The
Chamber of Commerce ha important
work to do Phd so far us possible its
membership must be composed of men
will ng to serve and who can afford
to pay the dues. The wsy to get at
this is 10 prepare a prospect list of
tboe whose interest and income are
such as to make them desirable mem
bers nnd confine your membership so
lie'tat'on to this list. The man is
"elected and apnroved as &. prospect
before ho is solicited as a member.
Stan-l'ng committees charged with
recruiting members are fcnerallv in
effective. '?he better way is to select
en or more men each pledged to de

The average membership loss in a
Chamber of Commerce is r.bout ten
per cent, per annum, due 10 deaths,
resitrnat'ons, removals. and delin-

From War to Peace Conditions.
The American peoplo during the
past nearly two years hav; learned to
carry on. In the raisinir and equip
ping of an army for overseas service,
and in provio'mg the full parapherna
lia of war it has accomplished the
seemingly impossible. We have been
equal to the greatest t-t that ever
came to our nation. We are a dif
ferent and a beter people from wha
we were before. We have learned
what wo can do in an emergency.
Other problems now confront us, one
of which is readjustment from war
to peace conditions; ami we will be
equal to that, too. Readjustment, is
largely a local problem. It can be
handled in each community by the
Chamber of Commerce.
There has been a stoipige of pub
lic works, of bu Id'ng of all kinds and
of road construction. Thes-3 can now
proceed. Wm can take up our share
of the labor slack and build better
communities for the present and for
the future. We can servi the coun
trv ourselves. There is excellent
ground for optimism over the future
no matter how the- theorist- mav seek
to terrorize us. Ptocks all over the
world are depleted- and the demand
for good'-' will be pnormo.ts. The pres
ident of a large Industrial concern
says that demobili-'atio.l vjl prove

they went, away and are nadly needed

at the peace council, upon whose re
sults the whole future of the world
evolution will turn, is the way in
which, again and again, upon each
crisis of deliberation, the community
ideals and facts prove to be the de
cisive determinant and test of poli
cies approvable and projects to be set
afoot. Concessions, abatements, mod
erations, even what seems compromis
es, are gradually forced upon the
leaders and groups at first excessive
ly pressing the nationalistic and in
dividual claims and interests, in order
that the underlying and sovereign
common and communal Tnterests and
well-being may be attained.
The strong and highly developed na
tions, in mutual self-insurance must
unite to provide for toe development
and prosperity of the weaker and less
advanced nations. The confraternity
of all nations, strong and weak, civ
ilized and savage, in an orderly trus
teeship, purged of the apirit of ex
ploitation and loyal to the Ideals and
covenants of the society of nations,
must work out the federation of the
world and the parliament of man, be
cause of the very fundamental and
Inexpugnable facts, which Ihe
world has been stabbed awake by this
war, of community interests as para
mount. Out of this tragic lijs or death
struggle, with its appaliing and unap
pralsable costs, early emerged and
increasingly grew to paramount im
portance the community idea and
ideal, as against particular dynasties,
sovereignties, nationalities, or even
groupings of these for particularistic
aims and mutual aid and defense of
sovereign rulers, classes or claims.
The war was clearly envisaged at
last as a battle to the limits of en
durance, of the enleagued free peoples
for the common; elemental and sov
ereign rights and well-being of the
masses of the people of every na
tionality and clime, against all the
forces which wero bent upon ex
ploitation and rulership of peoples
for the realization of aims, no matter
how beneficient in pretension, whose
ultimate processes and results were i
bound to issue in the violation of the I
principles of self-determination and
self-realization of the values of life,
where the individual citizen and the
citizen-state stand first.
It is significant for our own democ
racy in the war, that it perhaps utiliz
ed in a way without precedent com
munity forces and resources. It pro

make possible. But it proposed also
to make this army of democracy,
which was entering the war for ab
solutely no purpose but to safeguard
and secure the interests of democracy
tnrougnout the world, including of
course it own free national life, the
most powerful fighting instrument
ever produced because it should be an '
army in every unit light irg with the 1
soul as well as tUe body and mind
for democracies ideals. To attain
this lighting efficiency our democracy
this nation ,in voluntary taxatio-i and
achieved a unique thing. It. cn leagued
organization to put into the training
camps everywhere so far as possible i
the normalities of community life. It
organized communities, cities big and

ment, churches, fraternities, theatres,
clubs, private homen. vehicles, etc, and
even its transportation and trade life,

otic national interest in and loyalty

Unquestionably, our people have in

end of demobilization, not less than

future to demand war making of any
nation, the American army methods
in these respects will be the basis of
all training of fighters of the future.
To raise and administer this com
munity hospitality and service at
home and abroad, as well as to give
the army ana navy the full hob) of
the nature, every city, village, and
hamlet has been aroused to think and
act, to work and plan, in terms of the
whole community, for common sacri

the common good. Pace lines, relig

and groups rivalries have been melt

No question is quite so pertinent
or vital to local communities in this
Pew age as whether this enormovs

nity power, community purpose shall

Prom the international and nationr.l
