LEAGUE OF OPPONENTS.
Paris, May 30.?Facing thousands'
of white crosses marking the graves
of American soldiers dead in the
beautiful little cemetery of Suresnesi
overlooking Paris, President Wilson j
today flung a challenge to the opponents
of the League of Nations in the
course of his Memorial day address.
"You are aware that the standards
of the old order are attempting
to reassert themselves," the
Declaring that these standards are
the roots of war, he added: "Any
man who so counsels is an advocate
of a renewal of war, for if this is
not the final fight there will be another
which will be final."
The League of Nations, the president
said, is a covenant to insure
that the men who gave their lives
in battle did not die in vain.
"The nation drawing out of this
common agreement," he said, "would
betray the human race. As union soldier
gave their lives for the freedom
of the American nation, these
" - -* -IV- *
men gave tneirs ior uic unuvu v*|
the world." j
Marshal Foch Present.
The ceremonies were attended by
New York, May 30.?The funeral (
Derby and other dignitaries. Wreaths
wer laid on American graves by .
French and Americans alike.
The president praised the women
of Suresnes who were responsible '
for the beautifully kept graves.
"The dead have done their utmost
to show they died in a great cause," .
he said. "They left it to us to see
that this cause was never betrayed,
whether in war or peace." - !

ILL JULY 1 END
ttorney General Will Soon Answer
This Question Which Many Have
Will national prohibition, which
es into effect July 1, stop the quart
month practice in Abbeville and
roughout the State?
This is a question which has been
rplexing many of those who regurlv
eo or send to the probate
dge's office for permits, and it is a
estion that has also been prounded
to the attorney general a
mber of times lately.
In an effort to settle the matter
;torney General Wolfe and Assistt
Attorney General Lumpkin have
nsidered the matter and have deled
to render an opinion. They
ve written to Washington for a
py of the national war-time prohi:ion
measure and as soon as this
received they will study it carelly,
and will then render an opinl.
They may also get an opinion
>m United States Attorney GenerPalmer,
regarding the effect of
2 war-time measure on the quartnonth
The office of Probate Judge Miller
s received no instructions to stop
uing permits after July 1, and it
possible that "customers" will be
le to obtain a quart a month for
idical purposes as the law now proles,
as the amendment provides for
2 prohibition of its sale as a bevere.
There is no definite information
While it is certain that the prohi
;ion alw will stop the sale of liquor
a beverage, it is not known whethor
not it may still be sold for
Hlicinal purposes. In the event it'a
le for medicinal purposes it pertted,
it is believed that local resints
will still be able to obtain the
lart a month in the same manner as
is procured now.
OWN YOUR HOME.

If the English language had devel
