TURKS ASHAMED OF
THBR ACTIONS IN THE All News On the Subject Is Being Suppressed By the Censor PAID NO HEED TO GERMAN PROTESTS Behind the Veil It Is Certain That Much Needless Persecution Has Been Carried Out—Wreak Vengeance on Innocent Constantinople. September 25.—(Cor respondonce of the Associated Press.) By virtue of a total suppression of all news on the subject, the Turkish gov frnment has succeeded in throwing an impenetrable veil over Its actions to ward all Armenians. Nothing definite is obtainable in Constantinople of the rate of this people out in the prov inces but it is known that severe meas ures planned against the Armenians In Ihe Ottoman capital were not carried out owing to objections of the Ger man government. Concerning the Armenian affair, three separate notes were presented to the Ottoman government by the Ger man ambassador ad interim, Prince Hohenlohe-Dangenburg. If the .Associ ated PresB is rightly informed these notes had no far-reaching effect, be cause under present conditions the German government has been obliged to act rather gently. Turkey la still the ally of Germany and the Armen ans seem to have alienated the good will of the German government and people to a considerable extent by hav ing made open cause with the entente powers. Many of them have Joined rhe Russian forces near Van and at Zeitoun and Dort .lul they revolted Against Turkish authority. The three notes referred to were but official In cidents in weeks of endeavor to per suade the Turkish government to take a more reasonable and humane view >f the Armenian affair. One of the notes drew attention to the great in lustioe of making all Armenians sut ler lor tlie acts of a few. The Turkish government, however, seems to have •emained adamantine. Paid No Heed As already stated, it has been im possible to secure accurate informa tion in tiie premises. Turkish officials lave either refused to discuss the sit uation or have placed all blame on the \rraenian8; these latter, on the other land, have either refused to talk for fear of being also persecuted, or have issigned all responsibility to the Turks. \ mass of irreconcible statements has oeen the result, ranging, on the part >f the Turkish officials, from the ab surd claim that the Armenians were leing well treated, to the assertions of Armenian^ that in Zeitoun, Dort .lul md other places CO,000 Armenians had Seen massacred. That the Turks have in many in stances been guilty of needless severity ind in some cases have permitted bar barous acts of violence, including mur ler and violence, seems well estab islied. On the other hand, the Arme nians in the Van country have been iccused of similar excesses against the rurkish population and the Turks, laving power on their side, have re jaid such acts with liberal interest, it s said, in well informed Constantl lople circles. It cannot be said that the acts of he Turkish government in this con nection have found the approbation of lie advanced Turkish classes In the capital, who, for the greater part, fa :or a policy of conciliation and some >f whom even go as far as to advo ate the establishment of a separate Armenian state in Asia Minor under the overeignty of the Ottoman imperial ;overnment.

Dunlap In Uilntos Onoda^leaae jHeutlua Commodores Roll Up 100 Points—Largest Score in Several Years Nashville, October 16.—(Special.) Smashing the visitors* line to bits, Van derbilt piled up a score of 100 to 0 against Henderson-Brown, employing only straight football. It was the largest score made by a Vanderbilt team in sev eral years. The last period was short ened to four minutes or the total score might have broken all records, for the visitors were utterly exhausted, while Vanderbilt was constantly refreshed by frequent substitutions. Jarrett's run of 85 yards for a touch down on a kick-off in the fourth quarter and Turner’s dash for 80 yards, also on a kick-off, featured the procession-like manner of the Commodores scoring. Fif teen touchdowns were made and only five chances at goal were missed. The weather was Intensely hot and many of the Vandy regulars were taken out completely winded. Vanderbilt—Y. Chester, left end; Cody, left tackle; Hamilton, left guard; Reyer, center; Williams, right guard; Lipscomb, right tackle; Cohan, captain, right end; Currey, quarter back; Floyd, left half; Ray, right half; Wiggis. full back.

NEW DECATUR BIb Pay Boll Mol lay a« I. X. Shop. New Decatur. October 16.—(Special.) The 2500 employee In the Decaturs of the Louisville and Nashville will receive Mon day the largest pay roll paid by the com pany this year. Practically all of the em I ployes of the shops here are now work ins six days a week, and It Is expected that before Christmas, the hours of the working day will be lengthened. It Is currently rumored, though not officially confirmed, that the shops here have re ceived orders for 1000 box cars and many axles. The Louisville and Nashville shops is the largest single Industry in the De caturs. Announcement was made today that the Tennessee Valley Teachers' association will meet in the auditorium of the New Decatur High school on November 20-21. The executive committee of the associa tion Is now at work on the programme for the routine business, and the teachers of the Decaturs will arrange a programme of entertainment for the visitors. It is expected thin about 76 out-of-town educa tors will he here. The Decaturs will probably make a de termined attempt to get the staff repre sentatives of Collier's Weekly, who will visit the south to get material for an article on southern resources, to visit this county. The Decaturs have many inter esting features to offer. Elkton and Elkmont Springs, Tenn., will send delegations to the Decaturs,, to gether with other cities along the pro posed "Bee Line" route to meet the Path finding committee of the Jackson High way association, when they arrive in the Decaturs on October 26, it was learned today. The Decaturs are planning many entertainments for the Pathfiners. A, committee Is now soliciting funds for this purpose. J. E. Strips of the Decaturs is the proud possessor of a Dooley yam, weighing seven pounds and six ounces, grown on his farm. I- . obviously artificial basis and charac ter, would have but one result, name ly, that it is both ashamed and afraid to let the truth be known. The many attempts made by the Associated Press correspondent to throw some light on the Armenian situation resulted In failure, because the Turkish officials would not talk and the censorship would not permit the free passage of dispatches on the subject. Punish Innocent and Guilty Nevertheless it must be said that the Armenians are not blameless. Divest ed of all factors related to the nation al ambitions of the Aimenians, their conduct toward the Turks and the Ot toman government has Invited con stantly measures of repression. The rising of Zeitoun, Dort Jul and Van, and wholesale desertions of Armenian soldiers to the allies on the Gallipoli peninsula, and to the Russians in the Caucasus, have turned the Turks’ heart Into stone in matters Armenian, he is now wreaking vengeance upon guilty and innocent alike. Constantinople has for weeks had its daily crop of Armenian rumors. One of the most Interesting of them la that even the Shelk-ul-lslam had pro tested against the excesses from which the Armenians have suffered. There is a possibility that this Is true, because the Shelk-ul-lBlam is a man of moder ation and very progressive tendencies. It is asserted in Constantinople that the German government has for some time, even at the beginning of the war, taken a special interest in the Arme nians. The Germans feared from the very start of the war between Tur key and the entente that the Arme nians would make an attempt to re establish by force their Independence. ’ Prominent Armenians were informed that Germany would continue, and even increase, its benevolent interest in the race if a reasonable attitude was taken during the war. For a time the in fluence of the men, who had been en trusted with the dissemination of this promise had the desired result. But last January and February, more es pecially in March and April, when the allies had begun to attack the Dar danelles in real earnest the services of these intermediaries ceased to be of value. Exuggeraetd reports of entente victories inflamed the Imagination of the Armenians and In many parts they rose in revolt. What has happened since then is still an unwritten chapter. No newspaper men are allowed to visit the affected districts and reports from these are altogether unreliable. The reticence of the Turkish government cannot be looked upon as a good sign however especially when viewed in the light of what the German government has been obliged to do. | Praises Mississippi Convict Farm Jackson, Miss., October 16.—(Special.)

Paige Success—overwhelming aud unique in tlie motor car industry—has been our Success. We are grateful to our Paige Friends who have con tributed to this Success. And we want to show our gratitude in a substantial way. What We Are Celebrating .This is the anniversary of the Paige entree in the field of six-cylinder motor cars. Think of that—only a year ago! In twelve months Paige Sixes—on sheer merit of the cars, on their sheer quality—on their sheer value—have utterly swept and dominated the six-cylinder field—have won universal recognition as the unchallenged leaders of the Sixes. It is vastly more than a dollars-and-eents Success. It is the victory of an economic principle and a sound Ameri can idea. A year ago we staked our huge investment on our belief that the American people would be quirk to see in these Paige Sixes Supreme Quality at the lowest possible price for such quality. And the overwhelming endorsement of the American people has been our reward. Now Many More Paige Sixes Overwhelming and gratifying as the Year’s Suc cess lias been, there is a still greater event, a still more important step in Paige Progress that we are cele brating in this Paige Jubilee. That is the opening of the huge four-story con crete annex to the already enormous Paige factory. To say that thousands and thousands of square feet of floor space has been added to Paige manufacturing facilities perhaps means little. But to say that Paige Production is Now Doubled means a very great deal—both to us and to you. Although the huge Paige plant has been operated night and day since last January, we have never caught up with orders for Paige Sixes. Until now we have never caught up with this tidal-wave of demand. Thousands of Paige Purchasers have been disap pointed and w-e couldn’t avoid it. Now—for the first time—with the enormous factory addition, with our doubled production, with ample deliveries of Paige materials, we can promise you your Paige Six. We can now give the thousands of Paige Enthusiasts, whom for nine months we have been forced to disappoint, the car of their choice. Whether it be the improved seven-passenger Fairfield **Six-4«”—or the new five-passemger Holly wood Light “Six-36”. Paige is making Immediate Deliveries. Other motor car manufacturers are crippled for materials or because of manufacturing difficulties or for lack of mechanical equipment. The Paige is pre pared—prepared now to keep every promise—to sell you one of the country’s two most popular Sums at $1995 or $1095—and Deliver It To Yon NOW. That is the reason we are jubilant—why Paige Success is being celebrated across the Continent. You Can't Afford To Miss This We are keeping “open house” to our friends.

And, we believe, you will lie entertained and interested at our Paige Jubilee. Why A Paige Six Is Supreme? You win answer that question for yourself after you have seen the world famous seven-passenger “Six-46,” and ridden in it, as we shall want you to do. You will marvel at the beauty and distinction of its lines, the harmony of its colors and^red-trimmed run ning gear. You will marvel at the comfort of the easy-riding; of the genuine French glaze, hand-buffed leather and full hair upholstery; of the disappearing chairs in the tonneau. You wul marvel at the sums ing power and flexibility and silence of the Paige six cylinder motor. You wiH marvel at the supreme luxury and smartness and charm of this splendid vehicle—and at the price $1995. But we want you to see for yourself. That’s why we invite you.
