Texas Invites Michigan To Help Her Make Wolverines Feel At Home Waco, Texas, where the National Guard of Michigan will train for the! battlefields of France, is in the very cen- j ter of the cotton belt of the Lone Star State, and while our guardsmen are tfaera it will mako its autumnal obeia anec tu Ki.tK t'ottei with a great expo jiitjon and carnival.

Board of Commerce proposes to enlist the interest of other commercial bodies of the state in the proposal to follow our soldiers to the southland with tangible evidence of grat itude and of co-operation with Texas hosts. Another token of Waco’s good will toward its guests from the north is the sign over the door of one of her leading stores, “Wisconsin-Michigan Headquar ters.” and this hearty word of welcome published in the house organ of this es tablishment : “Thr -*■;<■• <jjt*.that Waco arM all Mrl.*»nrar. county offer** to the*** brave df'fw-!*tf*rfi l« nor a m**re lip welcome, but it i« as deep an she deprh of the heart; it Is as soulful as elevated feeling can express.

Sickening Os It It is reported upon pretty reliable au- j thority that feeling against German autocracy is becoming widespread and strong in Turkey. Os all the nations in the war. Turkey is in the sorriest fix. for it is heads-you win; tails-I-lose with her. The Allies will surely kick her out of Europe and, if Germany wins. Turkey w;’,l make only a tocfc. usrm sp*4- in the, sun for those autocrats to sit on. Always more or less hungry, the com mon folk of Turkey must have become simply ravenous during three years of war.

The Orientals In the War / BY DR FRANK CRANE (Copyright, 1915, by Frank Crane) Shall China and Japan !>♦* welcomed as allies of equal standing with America and France in this war? Vest For many reasons. It will help to dissipate that old laißa boo of the Yellow Peril. For many years western peoples have been frightened by nursery tales of the danger of the heathen Fast. Certain newspapers, partly ignorant and mostly vicious, have not scrupled to play upon race preju dice in their endeavor to amuse suspi cion and foment hostility toward Japan. There never was the slightest founda tion to this nefarious propaganda. ( hina has never been a nation of conquest. Japan’s aspiration,* of expansion have never reached to the West. The world has discovered that there is but one peril, but one fevered modern nation that has had the nightmare of universal dominion; it is that nation which i- now at war with the rest of mankind, that nation whose cry is Welt maeht oder Nledenjanjr.

It would also hasten world peace, for it would finally array the habitable world against Prussian junkerdom. * It would promote the prospects of world government.
