Karl Renner, Austrian chancellor, brought his peace delega tion and attendants to St Germain, near Paris, today, and at a later date will appear before the representatives of the allied and associated powers to reeoive the conditions which will spell peace for the former empire. A notable feature of the reception was the absence of Germans, who had requested permission to greet the Austria ns, but were denied this prir- ilege. The prefect of the department, M. Craleil, met the Austrians cour teouslyr and although there waff no official handshaking mary. members o the p:..rfy were s:e3te oai!5' clal handshakes from old acquaint ances as they were being shown to the waiting automobiles.

' V' The convention at St. Luis re ports Captain Cassidy was one of the greatest -demonstrations of 100 per cent Americanism ever seen in this country. From the outset the atti tude of the convention was one of patriotic endeavor with no half-way measures. No Half-Way ,Patriotlim. "For example,' ' declared Captain Cassidy, "one of the committees re ported a resolution 'recommending' I WE HOLD Nation Salutes TO ORGANIZE as that congress pass a law providing for the deportation of all aliens in terned during the war. The resolu tion came up on the floor and it was Immediately moved that the word recommending be stricken out and the word 'demanding' be inserted. The motion carried enthusiastically. Thre was no half-way patriotism .in evidence. The convention was 100 per cent' American." Among other resolutions passed was one denouncing and declaring against the I. W. W. and. similar or ganizations, and another demanding the deportation of all aliens who Tore up their citizenship papers v to keep from serving this country in- the war. "One of the delegates, : when this latter resolution was being discussed from the floor," Captain Cassidy re ports, "that 'if this country is too good' to fight for its too damn good for. such people to live in.'" Elect Officers In November. The ' organization ' adopted at the convention, reports Captain Cassidy, is permanent, but the officers elected are but temporary and will serve only until the next national meeting, in November, when it is expected all the forces in Europe will have been re turned to this country. Meantime states will complete their organiza tion and Te in shape to. elect dele gates to the next national" conven tion." - : What the A. L. Stands For The constitutiqn of the organization set forth in its preamble that "for God and country we "have associated ourselves for the following purposes: "First To uphold the constitution of the United States. j .
