‘TRAGEDIES OF LIFE ALL FROM DISOBEDIENCE’ Declares the Rev. Matthew F. Smith in Noon Meeting at Keith’s. Declaring that a careful study cf tbe Bible and an analysis of one’s experi ence *, ill always reveal the fact that the trare-_ies of life come from disobedience, the Rev. Matthew F. Smith, pastor of the First Fresbyterian Church, empha sised the need of complete obedience to the teachings of the Christ, at the noonday Lenten meeting held at B. F. Keith's Theater today. The speaker referred to three lessons to be obtained, he said, in the life of Jess Christ ss recorded by l*aul— Christ’s obedience. His humility and His sacrifice. •H’assion Week brings us once more to face with Calvary and the t russ o: (>\r Lord, Jesus Christ,” the Rev. Smith Said. “It is an old, old story, but It can not be told too often. The Apostle Paul Is the matchless Interpreter of the great purposes back of the heari of Christ. “One of the outstanding characteristics of our Lord’s life was his obedience. The real test of the strength of our faith la the test of our obedience. Through all the sufferings of Christ, He knew that the shadow of the cross was before Him. He was obedient even nnto death. The triumphs are accomplished by men and women who do not heed ambition, but Who obey the will of their God. “Abraham Lincoln obeyed the convic tions of his conscience and of his Lord,” the Rev. Smith said. Tbe Rev. Sutherland referred to Christ’s humility and declared that “If Christianity Is to do wliat Is expected of It, it mast make more of the doc trine of humility.” He added that “the Gospel of Christ is the gospel of the unfit as well as the lit.” The attendance ot the meeting was more than double Monday’s audience. C. H. Winders, executive secretary of the Chnrch Federation, stated. The Rev. Virgil E. Rorre will speak Wednesday noon. Mrs. Charles Reece was the so loist today. LIVE TOO FAST TO REACH BEST YEARS OF LIFE University Doctor Says That Chances of Death Are Increasing. COLUMBIA, Mo., April 11.—“ Americans live too hard and too fast. The chances •of death after fifty years of life are In creasing Instead of decreasing. In the last twenty years the death rate during the first five years of life has been great ly lowered, but for the later years men and women only lose their services to the community and State when they reach middle life.” These are some of made by Dr. M. P. Ravenel, professor of pre ventive mediciine in the charge of the Public Health Service laboratories at the school of medicine of the University of Missouri. The bureau of the census has recently sent advanced information on new life tables, which are soon to be Issued. This will be the second official publication of life tables ever issued in the United States, and figures ar. now available for the last twenty years. “People are interested in health large ly because they are afraid to die.” Dr. Ravenel, who is also president of the National American Public Health As sociation, continued “The true motive for health should be efficiency and not the mere prolongation of life. “The results obtained by our Census Bureau show that the death rate at practically ail ages is higher for men than for women, and the women show ing the lowest death rate are those liv ing In rural communities. For both ■exes rural dwellings show a lower death rate, age for age, than for persons living In cities. "While the sverage span of life bss Increased for both sexes there is no evi dence that there has been any actual Increase In the years of life. This is explained by the fact that practically ■ U classes of people are living longer on the average, and the greatest causa of this average Increase Is the taring of life in the first five years. “In 1900 a white female was entitled to expect three years longer life than white males, and In 1910 this had in creased to three and one-half years. Ex cept for negroes, there has been a gen eral Improvement for all classes up to the age of 40 for men and 50 for women. “There has been a decided Improve ment among all classes of population in the Infant death rate. Again, we find that children born in the.country show a considerably lower death rate than those born In the city. However, it is not ss great as it was in 1901, which indicates that the widespread efforts which have been put forth to better con ditions In our cities have met with suc cess. “Comparing ourselves with the fol lowing foreign , countries, Australia, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, India, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, we find that, except for France, India and Japan, our expectation of life both for men and women is less favorable than in any of the foreign countries mentioned. “In Norway, for example, which shows the lowest annual death rate for the first year of life, for every thousand the rate is eigbty-one deaths for males and sixty-seven deaths for females, while for the corresponding class in this country the rate is 127 for males and 105 for females. The most striking thing about these figures is the great improvement In our death rate during the early years GERMAN LOCOMOTIVES FOR RUSSIA .

It i poor economy to educate and train business men and women only to lose their services to the community and State just about middle life, when they should be at their best. “This is the problem which confronts physicians and sanitarians at tho pres ent day and one which demands the closets consideration not only from pro fessional persons, but from tho com munity at large.” Bartlett Sues for Refinery Property COLUMBUS, Ind., April 11.—Suit for the possession of the property of the In diana Oil Refining Company and 510,000 damages was filed in the Circuit Court of Bartholomew County by O.

NEW YORK, April 11.—Mexico is to day the second largest oil producing na tion in the world, according to figures published by local oil companies. The United States has first place. Oil production In Mexico is increasing. As agalnkt the 40,000,000 barrels produced in 1917, 1(53,540,000 barrels were produced in 1920. The 1921 figures, while not yet tabulati and, it is estimated, w'ill show a considerable excess over the previous year; notwithstanding -.he enforcement of the New Mexican tax law, which went into effect July 1, 1921. For several years now America has been importing oil from Mexico make up tty excess of domestic consumption over production, trade statistics show, in 1916 the United States produced 300,167,- 158 barrels of oil and consumed 315,599,- OtK) barrels; in 1917 production was 035,- 315,601 barrels, and consumtpion was 377,736,000 barrels; in 1918 production was 355, 927,716 barrels, as against con sumption of 413,477,000 barrels; in 1920 production was 433,402,000 barrels, against consumption of 513,156,000 bar rels. During 1921 it is estimated that close to 120,000,000 barrels were imported from Mexico, although the production had increased 40,000,000 barrels over the year 1920.1 OH experts believe that the United States soon will have to face a consump tion demand of from 000,000,009 to 700.- 000.000 barrels of oil In view of the fact that battleships, merchant marine and lighting and power plants are being con verted into oil burners. The extra oil, these experts say, will have to come from Mexico. COME!

Fear Flood Will Follow Snowstorm WAUSAU, Wis., April 11.—With six inches of snow, which had fallen since 8 o’clock this morning, covering the ground, and tho Wisconsin River above flood stage, one of the worst snow storms of the season was still raging at noon today. With the receding of the storm it Is expected the snow will melt rapidly, owing to the high temperature, and it is feared that the worst flood of many years will result.

Among these who have entered Is Miss H. JUatt, shown here In action. Asa hurdler she is a real “high-stepper.” DAUGHERTY TO DEFER ACTION IN MINE CASE (Continued From I’nge One.) said, among other things, he had come out here to look over She record in tho injunction proceedings brought last fall by the Borderland Coal Company to pre vent the continuation of the check-off and to prevent unionization work 10 .he West Virginia field, to familiarize himself with general conditions, to learn about the indictments returned here In Feb ruary, 1021, against the coal operators and miners and talk over the situation with Federal officials. At the conclusion of hia statement, ho was asked several direct questions and did not seem to take kindly to them. When asked if he had discussed with Judge Anderson tho criminal cases uow pending against the 225 miners, operators and companies, he said; ADMITS REPORTER GUESSED RIGHTLY. “Yes, because sdme enterprising young newspaper man guessed that I would do this and said so In his paoer.” “Then it was a 'bum' guess?” he was asked. lie hesitated for an appreciable length of time and then answeerd: "Well, It did not '.xactly hit the bulls eye.” Then ho was asked if he Intended to move the dismissal of the cases. This question did not seem at all to his liking. Again there was some hesitation and then he said. “I will say nothing about dismissing the Indictments brought under the Sher man act. I don’t know whether It would be practicable or possible at this time.” BELIEVED TO SEEK INDICTMENT DISMISSAL. The general feeling }s that Mr. Daugh erty Is very anxious to have the Indict ments dismissed In order that the opera tors and miners may get together In a wage conference to settle the present coal strike. Recently ho said that if such a conference were held that he would not bring any Federal prosecutions against those engaged In the conference. However, the crimlal cases now pending before J udge Anderson are based largely on such conferences held in the past, and It is understood that miners and operators refuse to engage In any further meetings until the present cases are dismissed. The Indictments were returned after Judge Anderson had directed the Federal grand jury to investigate the coal situ ation, and It has been considered very doubtful if he would agree to a dismissal of the cases. WILE NOT CALL ON LEWIS. • When asked If be intended to call upon John L. Lewis, president of tho United Mine Workers of America, while here, Mr. Daugherty said: “la Mr.-Lewis in the city? I did not know he was here. No, I did not intend to call upon him.” He then added that if Mr. Lewis came to see him he would be received. The statement made by Attorney Gen eral Daugherty is as follow's: "I have no announcement to make. I have reached no conclusion. I am out here to Investigate certain things in re gard to this coal situation. The Govern ment desires tc know all It can regarding the situation and to consider these crim inal cases and look into these Indict ments. I am trying to get th® fact®, the meetings complained of In the In dictments. WISHES TO LOOK INTO INJUNCTION CASE. “I want to look into the record In the Borderland Injunction case and con eider testimony given at that hearing, getting all possible information as to what has "taken place from time to time when these meetings took place, which are the basis of this controversy, as of preceding controversies of a similar character. . “I may do nothing in connection with any of these matters while here. I ex pect to go away Tuesday. “This coal situation Is a continuous performance with perodical rests. They come around about as frequently as circuses and are not one-half as much fun to the people who have to pay the price of the coaL “The Government Is Interested in this. The Govesnment is not taking sides be tween the parties or deciding who is right or wrong at this time. The Gov ernment is interested In seeing that the people of this country are entitled to participate In 'he resources that are essential to life at a reasonable price. It wants the owner and the miner to get a fair return. The public la willing to pay a fair profit to both.” MINERS TO FIGHT INJUNCTION ORDER AH legal guns of the United Mine Workers will be trained tomorrow or Thursday on the Injunction Issued by Federal Judge McCllntic in Charleston, W. Va„ restraining the union from or ganizing open shop coal fields In West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky and or dering disbandment of tent colonies of striking minors. Henry Warrum, counsel at headquarters here, expected to leave for Charleston this afternoon to prepare, an appeal to the United States Circuit Court of. Appeals asking that the injunction be set aside. The attorneys will cite the ruling of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals at Chi cago in overriding Judge A. B. Anderson who issued a restraining order against the union less sweeping than that of Judge MeClintlc. NEW SOCIETY OF POWERS IS ANTICIPATED (Continued From Page Cnt.) Russia should have two Members on the sub-committee. Later Tchltcherin protested against the presence of a Rumanian delegate on the committee on the ground that Ru mania had seized Bessarabia, which Is controversial territory. The protest was rejected. (Note: Pessarabia formerly was a Russian province, but after the war was overrun by Roumanian troops). RUSSIANS LIKE ANOTHER PROTEST. Still,another protest was lodged by the Russians when they asked that the Japaneso delegates be expelled from the meeting on tho ground that they were making w-ar against the Russians. “Japan intends to remain in this con ference whether Tchltcherin likes It or not.” said Dr. Ishli, of the Japanese dele gation. The representatives of the little entente on the commission are Polish and Ru manian delegates. The neutrals are Swedish and Swiss delegates. It is xinderstood tho British premier has drawn up n definite set of proposals on Russia which he will propound tomor row. UNCLE SAM WISHES CONFERENCE WELL WASHINGTON.
