THE HOME TOWN PAPER
How the heart grows soft and tender
while its column* you're perusing,
Every item is faqtiliar, every name
you know full well.
And a flood of recollection passes o'er
you while you're musing
On the past, and weaves about you
an imaginative spell.
You can see the old home village once
again in fancy, seeming
To be clasping hand of neighbor and
of friend and relative
And their faces rise before you as
you're idly, fondly dreaming
O'er the little country paper printed
where you used io live.
—Kansas Industrialist.

who occupied hi* it in the senate
for a day or twu, urged upon his col
leagues the need of quick arid non
partisan work, and intimated that an
extra session would be called soon
after his Inauguration.
President Wilson was desirous of
appearing in person before congress
to deliver his message, but was dis
suaded at the last minute by his phy

the clerks. In his opening fjom-r-jlizsi

matters lie made just two sjieciiic m:
ommendations. The first was that a
large loan be made to Armenia, the
money to be expended under the su
pervlslon of an American commission.
Compliance of congress with this re*
quest is made somewhat doubtful by
recent developments in Armenia,
where the Hussian I teds are now in
almost complete control and have set
up a soviet government. Tin ['resi

Withdrawal from the League of Na
tions assembly by the Argentine dele
gation caused a lot of talk, in Geneva
and elsewhere, but it didn't disrupt
the gathering by any means. Indeed,
Pueyrredon and his colleagues found
they had put themselves in a rather
ridiculous position and the chief re
tired to Paris, disappointed but still
defiant. Their argument that proposed
amendments to the covenant should be
discussed and acted on at this session
was upheld by the Scandinavians and
certaiu others, but their action in quit
ting because they found themselves in
the minority on the question was not
approved by anyone, and was attacked
by some of the Buenos Aires papers.
Pueyrredon stated that his mission In
Paris was to consult with Senator Mc
Cormick of Illinois in the hope that
the United States and Argentina
would become the leaders of a move
ment to give to the world a substitute
for the present league.
Wednesday's session of the assem
bly was enlivened "by a hot speech by
Newton Itowell of Canada In opposi
tion to the plan of Hanotaux of
France to have three new organiza
tions set up, each with an annual con
ference. to take care of finance, trans

protested that nations like Canada
would not agree to be saddled with
the immense additional expense that
the three proposed commissions would
require. Nor could such nations af
ford to send their best technicians
each year to the conference, he said,
and consequently the problem involved
would be handled exclusively by Euro
pean nations, whicli would not at all
suit Canada. "Why," he cried, "do you I

their children about taking up Christ

to make an open public decision for
this work, at the service next Sunday
morning. The need is great for
ministers, missionaries, physicians
in the foreign field, pastors assistants,
and Christian workers of all sorts,
and so the young folks are asked to in
est their lives in this service for
Christ and the Kingdom.

IOWA FOOTBALL TBAMS
The Council Bluffs Nonpareil has
picked a Southwestern Iowa first and
second football team for this season.
They place Rosenbaum and Muller of
this city, halfbacks on the second
team.
The Nonpareil has this to say of
the local boys: "The two Missouri
Valley halfbacks, Rosenbaum and
Muller, are placed on the second
tsara. Either one of them might
have made the first team if either
Thompson of Red Oak or Blake of
Atlantic had been unavailable.','
