Also Mr. lirynn doesn't think much of th parade anyway, nnd Implies that It was thr work of corporations, munition makers and controlled newspapers. Mr. Itrynn made this known Inst night to reporters before he spoke before 2,000 Norwegian Americans nt the Hrooklyn Arademy of Music.

Many leaders declare that there come nt last to the conclusion that no is .1 widespread desire on the rank and man other than Hoosevelt is competent to IV"""; handle the present situation. Is Mr. William Jennings Bryan was a sur prise speaker at the centenary dinner of the Savings Hanks Associations at the Hotel Itlltmoro Inst night. It was surmised by some that Mr. Ilrynn was also slightly surprised, for coming late Into the banquet hall he ran Into several redhot preparedness speeches being delivered by such men as Or. Charles Alexander Jtlchmond, president of t'nlon College, and Joseph A. I.awson, a lawyer of Albany. Mr. Kiwson made the ex-Secretary of State color a deep red under his tan by one little portion of his speech, hut when It came time for hltn to talk the ex-.Sccre-tary only devoted about two minutes to his views nnd thereafter talked of "Thrift," the password of the evening. It was 11 o'clock when air. lirynn came quietly Into the hall and took a chair unrecognized. He was not ex pected by the diners nnd only President James II. Manning knew he was to come. Just nt that moment Ur. ltlchmond was saying: "Choose you this day whom ou will serve?" and from tho applause It was appal ent the bankets weie en thusiastic alsjut piep,irednes Then came .Mr l.awson lust after the surprise guest had gone up to the head table, and Mr. Lawsnn told the bankers that slnco they provided bolts and locks to guard tlm savings of the poor, the country must prepare to defend them from the Invader. Then he said that If a farmer up back of Albany hears a gang of hoboes Is going to raid his chicken house he dors certain things. Offers Xo Dots of Peace, "Does he." asked the apeaker. "go out to his pigeon house and there select, lug a nice white pigeon, tie It with a sllktn cord to his hen house as a dove of peace'.' Docs he1"' "He does not!" shouted about every one of the fixe liutidrtd bankers present "No." was the coiiimeut. "He loads his old shotgun and gets teady." Mr. Ilrynn. who was well received, said he did not have any spiech to 111 the oociiHlon. lie was not accustomed to addtevsitw such audiences. He had many otln r Mieechf s, but not one for bankers. However, li lidded lm was only ttnltig to nay a very few words about pmmrcd nes, although he might saj more. "I am not ashamed to believe," he continued, "that Christ s phibxnpliy of love Is more potent to-day than all the teriniSm nf prep.ltrdness " The tin ent war he said came after twentv-llve ears of roiriiWte preparedness and that philos ophy is fatae which b'lleves that pit patedness prevents war, He cited "pistol toting'' on.

An important part of the new government program is the publication of beautiful, authentic descriptions of our great playgrounds in booklets which soon will be ready for free distribution. Through the courtesy of the Interior Department the Union Pa cific System will co-operate in the movement to increase travel to Yellowstone Park by reprinting the government book on this wonderland. To all who send in their namesthis book will be mailed as soon as it is off the press, togetheri'vvith full information ' on how to reach the Yellow-, stone, rates, etc. About two-thirds of all who visit the Park enter, through the western gateway (Yellowstone tstation; , t the Union Pacific entrance, be cause Colorado and Salt Lake City may be seen on the way without added expense, and also because this makes a con venient side trip on the way to California or the North Pacific Coast.
