The 6' o'clock- evening whistle means
nothing whatsoever to an employee of
the Paine and Morey service station,
31 South First avenue.' He never sleeps
and he simply craves labor, be it night
or day. Here's the story.
Yda Waldrop. secretary of the Mari
copa Auto Trades association, bought
a Horse Shoe casing at the Paine and
Morey establishment at 4 o'clock Fri
day afternoon. The . casing was
mounted on one of the rear wheels and
a U. S. nobbv tread extra casing placed
on the rear. Mr. Waldrop drove off
to spend the evening at Riverside
Returning home at 1 o'clock in the
morning he parked his car in the
driveway by his house, 150a "West
Adams street and went to bed. Rising
in the morning about 50 o'clock, he
found that his extra nobby tread was
gone, and that his tools had been
tampered -with. The emergency brake
was on tight and the qlutch was in
Hurrying down to Carl Anderson's
office, Mr. Waldrop put In a claim for
a stolen casing, tube and rim. Mr.
Miller o the U. fcs. Rubber company
made the adjustment and figured that
1200 miles was a reasonable deduction
to make for a new casing.
Retnrning a., little later to get the
new casing from Mr. Miller, Mr. Wal
drop asked casually, "What do you
think of my new Horse Shoe on the
rear?" ,
"Something wrong with your eye
sight i this morning," Mr. Miller re
torted, as he bent to examine the
wheels. "You haven't got any Horse
Shoe tire on this car."
"Why 1 just bought one' and put it
on yesterday:" said Mr. Waldrop, and
got out to look. On the rear wheel
where there should have been a new
Horse Shoe, was the stolen nobby
tread. Mr. Waldrop Immediately con
cluded that the thief had preferred to
steal a new tire, and so had taken the
Horse Shoe and replaced it with the
extra nobby tread from the back of
the car.
Carl Anderson scratched out "nobby
tread" and wrote "Horse Shoe" on the
order, and sent Mr. Waldrop back to
the Paine and Morey . station for a
new tire.
Arriving there, he was confronted
by a tired mechanic In overalls, car
rying the lost tire, and demanding,
"Shall I put it on the wheel or on the
rack, sir?"
Questioning revealed that in pass
ing Mr. Waldrop's residence early that
morning on another call, the employee
had noticed that the tire sold the even
ing before was flat. Knowing that
Mr. Waldrop would need the car in
the morning, he had made the change
and hurried off with the tire to the
"That's real service." said Mr. Wal
drop, in discussing the incident, "and
I am only one of the many customers
of Paine and Morey who are realizing
and appreciating what real tire ser
vice means."

nent New York republicans, asking
that the peace treaty be ratified without
delay. Among the signers were George
W. Wickershara, former attorney gen
eral and Oscar S. Straus, former am
bassador to Turkey, who were bitterly
assailed by Mr. Borah. Mr. Straus was
talking to several senators just outside
the senate chamber when the speech
was made. '.
The speaker also quoted an appeal
of former President Taft, against the
Knox resolution, in which Mr. Taft
urged that politics should stop at the
water's edge.
"1 agree with that, perfectly," con
tinued Mr. Borah. "Docs politics stop
at the water's edge regarding the
Monroe Doctrine? Yes. but on this side
of the water. And so with a multitude
of other things in this covenant, U
is Inconceivable that this can be kept
out of politics, for the people have no
way to express themselves, except
through political parties."
"Was that the view, of those who
signed the round robin?" interrupted
Senator Pomerene, aemocrat of Ohio.
"I can only assume to speak for
myself," replied Mr. Borah. "There
never was an Instant when I would not
have denounced my party as cowardly,"
ir it nad taken a stand tor this league.
Mr. Hays (the republican national
chairman) says thin la an American
question. .' It is, but it has two sides,
and on which side does he stand?
Would Spit on Platform
"I have been a republican all my
life. I should like to remain a repub
lican, but I would trample any plat
form that endorsed this treacherous
scheme, and I would spit upon any
platform that was silent on the sub
ject. The international bankers may
mononolize everything else in the
rL'nited States, but they can't monop
olize the right to organize a new po
litical party.
"Mr. Hays cannot commit the repub
lican party to neutrality. Certain re
publicans don't want the party to take
a definite position, because they know
the democratic party is thoroughly or
ganized and that in ' every precinct In
the United States, it, is fighting for
the league of nations. ,,
"So far as I'm concerned, it does not
make any difference what the repub
lican party does, I know there'll be a
party that will stand for" American
rights." -
la his reply. Senator Hitchcock de
clared it was plain why the repub
licans dared not take a party stand
against the league because, vevery test
of public sentiment made, therefore,
has shown an overwhelming senti
ment, republicans as well as democrats,
for the league."
The Nebraska senator gave the re
sults of a number of newspaper and
magazine polls, all showing majorities
for the league, and read a long liet
of republican papers which he said
were supporting it.
"If the republocans defeat this trea
ty." Mr. Hitchcock continued, "they
will find out what the sentiment of the
country Is."
Asked by Senator Porah if he would
join in preparing a measure for a pop
ular vote on the question, the Ne
braska senator replied there was no
need, for the treaty would have enough
republican votes to secure ratifucation.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 20. "Jim
my" Britt, former lightweight pugilist,
if? one of those who has gone on record
as favoring Dempsey in his champion
ship heavyweight bout against Jes3
Willard, the champion at Toledo on In
dependence Day. .
"Dempsey is the harder hitter of th
two," said Britt. "Willard has passed
the fighting age and he never was-n
man to polish off his opponents in
hurry. Willard is bound to tire early
in the fight and to become more tireil
as the fight goes on. Unless he picks
off Dempsey at the start, I can't see
that he has a chance."
