ONE-ARMED HUNTER SMASHES
Never again need you fear the "13" 1
hoodoo. It has been smashed to
smithereens by Nels Hage of St Paul
and Hage is a one-armed man at
that. Hage applied for a big game
license and was given license No. 13.
Then he started out on a hunting trip
in northern Minnesota, despite the
clamoring of his friends that he
change his license number.
He arrived on the deer hunting
grounds Saturday, Nov. 13, and with
in 13 minutes after unpacking he shot
a 213-pound buck.
The accompanying picture shows
Hage, the gun and the deer that
helped him "bust" the "13" hoodoo.

WOULD HAVE PAN-AMERICAN
AND WORLD PEACE MEETING
New York, Nov. 22. 2,500 persons,
meeting at Cooper Union last night
under auspices of People's Institute
and the Woman's Peace party, passed
resolutions condemning unusual na
tional defense measures and request
ing U. S. government to call a world
and a pan-American peace confer-
ence of neutral nations.
The audience heard Max Eastman,
socialist editor of the Masses, say he
did not believe in national patriotism
and that the "United States to him
was only the name of a group.
"I don't see any sense in patriot
ism," Mr. Eastman declared. "I re
gard the United States as an abstract
group which is important just as far
as it helps along the people of the
world toward liberty and life, and
both academical and absurd the mo
ment it stops helping. I regard
France, Germany, England and the
United States as exactly similar
ideas and I do not identify myself
with any of them. When they are
honored I am not honored; when they
are mixed up in a dog fight I am not
mixed up in a dog fight"
