MISSION TO LEPERS WILL
HOLD MEETING TONIGHT
The Alexandria Auxiliary of the
Mission to Lepers will hold its semi
annual meeting: at 7:-'0 o'clock this
evening in the Westminster Building:.
. It is an interdenominational mis
sionary organization devoted to wel
fare and religious work among; the
lepers of the world. It establishes
hospitals and furnishes physicians.
nurses and medical supplies; it es
tablishes homes where the fictinis
of this dreaded disease are eared
for and made comfortable; it es
tablishes colonies whej;e the un
tainted children of lepers are cared
for until they raech the aire for ed
ucation and self support; schools
are maintained where reading is
taught and vocational instruction is
given to enable the lepers to help
each other and themselves, and it
erects chapels and churches where
Bible classes and devotional servi
ce? of an undenominational charac-'
ter are held.
The Alexandria Auxiliary was
organized in April, 1017. by the
late Mrs. Landon It. Mason, of
Richmond, and funds enough were
raised to support one leper for a
year. The next year the Gold Pig
Banks, or "Pete," as the members
of the mission kmrw him, yielded a
fund not quite sufficient to care for
two lepers, and this present year,
though the cost of maintaining a
leper has increased.?as has every
thing else that we know anything
about.?the auxiliary hopes to put
down three lepers to its credit.
Officers of the local organization
are: Miss Gault Norton, president;
Mrs. M. W. O'Brien, vice presi
dent; 'Miss Mary Williamson, treas
urer; Miss Margaret Germond. see
re'tary.
All of the churches in Alexandria
are represented in the auxiliary,
and all members of the community
who are interested in this most
humane work of healing the sick,
and obeying the command to
'cleanse the leper," are invited to
attcr.d the lyieetsnir th^-evening.
RESERVATION" ADOPTED
Four Democrats Vole With Republi
cans For 'Measure
The reservation to Article ten of
he League of Nations eonvenant was
idopted by the Senate yesterday ly
; vote of 4<> to 3".
Senators Reed, of Missouri; Goiv.
>f Oklahoma; Smith if Georgia, and
Walsh of Massachusetts, Democrats,
After the vote, Senator Hitchcock.
Administration leader, declared he
ivould have to vote aga*nst the ratifi
cation of the treaty, so drastic did
rie regard the Senate's action.
Amendments designed to modify
[he effect of the reservation. ?ne of
which called for the United States
ulhcrenre to the obligations of the
article for five years, were defeated.
Aside from the adoption of tin
reservation. the important develop
ment of the day was the resolution
r:f Senator Lodge to invoke cloture!
upon the debate to bring the treaty
to an early vote. Thirty Republi
can Senators signed this request.
Earlier in the day Senator Hitch
cock offered a cloture amendment, but
it was objected to by Senator Norri
because it related only to the reserva
tions pending and not to the treStv
as a whole. This was upheld by Sen
ator Cummins, in the chair, but when
Hitchcock appealed for a vrne, Sena
tor Lodge's motion to table the ap
peal carried. 44 to 3*>.
Senator Hitchcock introduced a set
of interpretative reservations which
represent the maximum that will re
ceive the Administration's support".
The<? will be acted upon probably
today.
