I REFUGEES ARE I RETURNING Tl) I RECLAIM OWN In' ' EVIAN, FRANCE, Nov. 30. (Cor- 10 1 respondencc of the Associated Press) 1 , The return to Franco of tho women. children and old men who were sent m out of that part of France occupied by AH' Germans for more than four years prc- 81 scnted pitiful spectacles. Many of iy , these refugees were little tots whose I fathers and mothers liad been taken I i away by the cruel Bochc to work in 1 1 Germany or behind the fighting lines. 9 ' Others were orphans. b Twice daily iho affecting scenes of 1 Iheir return were enacted here when m the trains bringing them through Swit- in zerland bringing GOO to 700 repatriates III' back to the beloved soil of France. H With them were Belgians who came In from parts of Belgium then occupied II! by the Hun. Much was done to re- k-' lievc the sufferings of these poor peo- In pie by S. S. Rowland, representative of 19 the Belgian Rnlief Commission sta- M ' tloned here, and by Mrs. Ilowlands, Hi 1 his wife. n i Describing the scene of the return H of a trainload of refugees, Mr. How si ! land writes: 11' "Slowly, the long line came towards Q f us, tho old and the young about equal - Mil ' ly divided alas, but few of middle age. wm for the Germans had use for such and m II would not let them go.

WJ "Now and again someone would jj A ! rush out from the sidewalk to greet fi 11 1 a rclative or friend recognized after Jg I years of absence. But though such m 1 instances were rare, they served to 9j$ buoy up the hopes of the rest that ij perhaps farther along they too would fk I ! be as fortunate. 1 Sr "Two short rests were made that tlic I seemingly countless children might bo M I able to keep up.

BE FIRST TO MAIL ,i C1ST1S GIRS i "Do your Christmas shopping early, and mail your packages as soon as pos sible," should be the slogan of every one from now until Christmas. Contrary to a story in this morning's paper, that all parcels In order to re ceive any attention must bo mailed by December 10, there is no definite date set by the department as to when par I eels wDl be mailed. Any parcel mailed j at any time receives immediato atten fi tion. However, it is urged, that in or der to avoid congestion which at that 1 1 holiday season becomes inevitable, peo- plo should make an unusual effort to I attend to thoir postal duties as coon as possible. "Be the first one to mail -your sifts," said Postmaster Browning, "as there S are too many who wait until the day jj before."

Col. Clarenco C. Culver of Washington is the Inventor. By this new invention It was possible to communicate with avi ators after they had soared thou- tyne, Walter Stephens, Leo Madsen and Douglas Brian, after which the opening prayer was offered ,by W. J. Barnes. Tho speakers were George F. Shorten and Bishop Sanderson, and both eulogized tho life of Mr. Scow croft as one of unselfish and faithful devotion to his family and to those in need of aid. The male quartet then rendered "The Close of Day" and the grave was dedicated by Bishop J. U. Uro. The pallbearers were William Douglas, H. E. Skinner, D. Leo Madsen, D. H. Papc, W. H.

The ten American1 dreadnaughts, which will escort Pres- j Ident Wilson into French waters, will turn about immediately after their ar rival to carry homeward a largo party of American soldiers and sailors. The trip will be so timed that the j men will arrive at a home port by I Christmas. 1 Tho operation will constitute one of I the most extensive movements of bat- j tleships for transport purposes everj undertaken. Vice Admiral Wilson at Brest is making -arrangements for the movement and determining the trans-1 port capacity of each battleship which at this time is less than usual because of the regular crews having been in-' creased so that recruits might be ! trained. A large number of folding steel beds will be mounted between i decks, however, thus making the ag gregate capacity of the battleship fleet many thousands of men. Brest already is crowded with sol diers and sailors awaiting the homo ward trip. Going to Brest. WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. President Wilson and his peace party are not expected to reach Paris before late next week, probably not until Satur day. The trip across will be made at ordinary cruising speed, as there is no occasion for haste. The George Washington is going di rect to Brest, France, one of the chief French ports of debarkation for the American army. Probably a very large number of American troops will be at' the camps in that vicinity when the' president arrives and will participate in the initial ceremonies welcoming him to France. nn WHAT AMERICA M 111 THE WAR i f ; Commencing December S, the Four minute men of the United States, who dwell in those fortunate places which are delivered from the epidemic will go to the task of explaining" "what have we won." In announcing to congress the sign ing of the armistice, President Wilson said: "Everything for which America has fought has been accomplished." "During tho next seven days the Four-Minute men of the government! will devote their speches to review ing the war aims of America and to demonstrating just how those aims were accomplished when the enemies and the allied powers agreed to base the future world peace on America's war aims as expressed in the famous fnnrfoon nnlnte -F T. nnnnr O t fil O I.. wv,vu iJuiuio ut iiouuaij o, J.UJ.O, III the subsequent four fundamental prin ciples of February 11th and in the four summary paragraphs of July 4th. The bulletin of information sent out from National headquarters of Four Minute men in Washington is entitled "What Have We Won?" and goes into the subject of American influence on world peace very thoroughly. "America's contribution was not merely furnishing the forco that turn ed the tide of battle at Chateau Thi erry; it was .in furnishing forces that draw from the past and reach into the future." The bulletin continues to de fine these forces in the following man ner: "The United States, as tho eldest of democracies, gave first impulse to the movement which in the last hund red years has spread throughout the world and which within a few swift frceks has swept the last of the abso- sands of feot aloft, and to direct their movements.

"America first declared the doctrine that all men are created free anc equal in their citizenship, which has been the seed and ferment of democ racy. "America first declared that govern ments derive their just powers fron: the consent of the governed, which all the world today acknowledges to be the only sound basis. "The United States first proclaimed the doctrine that conquest by a for eign power upon any part of this con tinent would be an offense againsl this government. That doctrine, am plified by a long line of American presidents, has led the world's though! to the present day belief, acknowledg ed everywhere, that every state has the right to work out its own destiny. That is now recognized throughoul the world as the only sound basis for international law." The Four-Minute men will traco the development of the Monroe Doctrine to its complete culmination in a basis upon which will bo built the future peace of the world, which basis has been abbreviated by its author intc a single sentence: "The Reign of Law, Based on the Consent of the Governed, Sustained by Organized Opinion of Mankind." These three principles are funda mental in the American democracy; they are now fated to become funda mental in that world democracy which America's blood and might have help ed to secure. oo w&mm calls ARE II CAELLED The Ogden city exemption board has received the following letter from Cap tain Gordon Snow, draft executive of ficer for Utah: By direction of the provost marshal general, all calls for Induction into tho navy arc hereby cancelled, effective at once, and no more competent orders will be given, issued for the induction of registrants into tho navy or marine corps.

Who have been more economical, men or women, dur ing the conservation period of the war? M on that is the answer of trade sta tistics. A State street department store man ager saidT "Women have bought twice E. L, TITLEY ,T st.- ' ! ' ' . '. I ' ' V :' ' .'.', Private E. L. Titley, whose message 1 relating to German propaganda drop- ped from aeroplanes over the Canad ian lines near Lens, was published in tho Standard last night. as much in our storo as men, during the war. A jeweler said: "Women have bought two-thirds of all the jewelry sold. This includes diamonds and pearls which have doubled in price slnco the war began but are faafe in vestments because they will go higher for several years after the war." A garment manufacturer said: "Sales of women's dress goods this year have been a third greater than last." The merchants point in explanation to the fact that moro women are work ing than over before and making good wages. Thousands of men, on the oth er hand, have gone away to war. Pur chases of clothes seem to prove, how ever, that men are naturally more eco nomical than women. Women are buy ing more clothes than ever. Men are buying less. 'This is proved by the showing of the tailoring trade. While the army drafts have seriously affect ed this trade, tailors say their older customers, who are not within the draft age, have decreased their patron age and aro ordering fewer suits in a season. IN-PARTISAN LEAGUE STILL II SECRET SESSION ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 4. The fore noon session of the annual convention of the National Non-partisan league to day was marked by tho same secrecy as were the opening sessions yester day. A written statement given out by the league regarding the forenoon session reads as follows: "The national convention has ap proved permanent articles of associa tion for the league. These articles place the management eff the affairs of. the organization entirely in the hands I of the membership under the follow ing procedure: "Each ' state organization of the league is to be governed by a commit tee of five farmer members. These state committees are to be elected by the state convention of the league in each state. Delegates to the state con ventions of the league will be chosen as in tho past by the members them selves in township or precinct meet ing, "The chairman of each state commit tee will bo a member of the national committee of the league. The members of the national committee will bo as many as there are states in which the league is organized. The national com mittee chooses a national executive committee of three. The national ex ecutive committee chooses its own j chairman who also become president and chief executive officer of the league. "After taking action on the articles of association and the re-election of President Townley, tho national con tention, now in session, commenced the work of auditing the books and ac counts of the league. This work will probably take some time. "The national convention will ap point a committee and formulate; rules for holding a referendum of the mem bership in regard to Mr. Townloy's re election. The articles of association of the league do not provide for a ref erendum of this kind but this refer endum is being held at the personal request of Mr. Townley himself."
