"Join! all you need is a heart and a dollar." Residents of Paris and Bourbon county this week are being con fronted at every turn with this Bed Cross Christmas Boll Call member ship slogan. Go into p. restaurant and you'll find the message on a neat little sticker, attached to the menu card. Buy a magazine at a newsstand, and you'll probably find the "Join" slo gan attached to the cover page or carried inside in an attractive adver tisement donated to the Red Cross. Many of your letters will reach you carrying this timely "urge," and perhaps you'll find it pasted on a telegram. Very likely your Christ mas parcels will be sent home from the. store sijmilarly labeled. . Thousands of these .little stickers will appear in Paris to supplement the work of posters, billboards, street car cards driving home the "Join" message. The Red Cross has used every pos sible means to get the "Join" idea across in the Jake Division States of Ohio, Indiana and .Kentucky because the goal of the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call in this and every commu nity is "universal membership," and "universal membership" means ev erybody enrolled sf December 23.

President Wilson entered Paiis, Saturday, amid the boom of a hun dred guns in salute and a greeting at the railway station and along the route to his temporary residence by enthusiastic throngs, estimated to to tal nearly 2,000,000 persons, whose cheers set the air vibrating. , "President, Poincare, Premier Clem enceau and other French officials met the Presidential party at the railway station, together with French and American military officers and prom inent civilians. t After the presentations had buen concluded the Presidential party en tered open carriages of state and drove under overcast skies along the appointed route between solid ranks of French troops. The route was lined for miles with captured guns and other mattle tro phies and every available space was crowded by vast crowds waving and shouting their- welcome. L ij iji ii DELAY IN PAYING OFF SOLDIERS IS CRITICISED Criticism of delays of the War Risks Insurance Bureau in paying soldiers allotments, and the War De partment for failure to pay many soldiers returned from overseas for hospital treatment was voiced again in the House. Republican Leader Mann read a telegram from Richmond, Va., say ing soldiers in a hospital there had received no pay from the War De partment from five to eleven months. Representative Rucker, of -Missouri, Democrat, charged the bureau with "gross negligence," complaining that he was reliably informed that it has 300,000 letters "dumped in a heap unopened."

IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY (Continued from Page 1) A telegram has been received here from the War Department at Wash ington, announcing that Gilbert Lee. Stone is reported officially as missing in action in France since August 2$. Young Stone is a grandson of the late Mrs. Martha Jones, of Paris, and a nephew of former Parisian James Jones, Mrs. M. T. Sosby and Mrs. Childers Jones. " T Mr. George W: Dawson, Of Clik- tonville, received a telegram, from' Mrs. Dawson, stating that her neph ew,, Garner JSstes, formerly of CUn tonville, was one. of the thixty sol diers injured in a train wreck in France. Young Estes was a member of the American. t Expeditionary Forces. Nothing further has been heard fropn him. ?; Mrs. Wm. Jtincaid, of North Mid dle town, received a telegram from, the War Department, stating that her brother, Private Strother Prewltt, had been killed on, the battlefield in France in the last big drive. Young Prewijit had resided" in the North Middletown. vicinity near all his lite. At the time he "enlistein in the Fer vice he was residing with his broth er, Mr. Clay Prewitt, on he Paris and Winchester pike, near Paris. Private Richard English has re turned to Paris from Camp Beaure gard, .near New Orleans, where t he was ,a member of the Veterinary Corps. He has received an honorable, discharge. The camp had been an active place for influenza germs, as, according to Private English, over 800 cases had been reported at the hospital headquarters. English stated that he had the influ enza, but did his own prescribing, drinking only lemon juice. He said his chief regret In having to leave the camp was that the watermelons were just beginning to ripen. He said Louisiana is composed mostly of sand, flees, mosquitos, negroes and pine trees. , Mr. Ira G. Taylor, of Shelby City, formerly of Paris, has received a let ter from his son. Ira G. Taylor. Jr., i with the American Expeditionary Forces in France, stating that he re cently escaped death in a train wreck in which thirty soldiers were killed. Young Taylor is a grandson of Capt. Ed. Taylor, former Parisian and well known traveling man for years in the dry goods trade. He volunteered and was for several months stationed at Camp Zachary Taylor before bfaing sent to Camp Shelby, at Hattiesburg, Miss., where he remained until he was sent overseas. He had been in the service a year in this country be fore being sent across and arrived too late to get into the fight, as the arm istice was signed before his division reached the front. A letter from B. Clark Wilson, of Paris, who recently arrived from France at the Base Hospital, at Rich mond, Va., states: "I am still in Richmond, Va., but expect to leave soon for some hospital closer to Paris. Up to the present time I have not heard just where I am to go. We have been expecting to hear every day since I landed, but have had to await orders from Washington. I am still in bed but am able to sit up. We are at present having fine weath er. It has not been very cold out here. People come out from Rich mond every day and "Dring us fruit, cigarettes," candy and cakes, so you see we are not suffering very mucn. I am enclosing ,a clipping from the Richmond News-Leader, which tells about" us leaving. We are well taken care of out here, Just as we were elsewhere, but I want to say piat the grandest organization in the world is the Red Cross. Well, may yet get a chance to write again soon." si Hi 1 iDO YOUR. SHOPPING EARLY FOR CHRISTMAS. The admotition, "Do your shopping early," should be observed by evry citizen this year of all years. Belated shopping means crowded stores and crowded stores means the proboble broadcast sowing of more influenza germs. Furthermore, if the present situation continues the health offi cials may take a hand and put the ban on shopping. This year it may come to a case of shopping early or not shopping at all. We want our young readers to know that Santa Claus has been de clared to be immune from the influ enza. Whether the old gentleman took a shot of the serum discovered by the 'Rockefeller Research Insti tute,, or whether the early shopping being done by the thoughtful par ents of the nation is responsible for this happy state of affairs we do not know. But the fact that the old fel low is in ship-shape and hearty, and will be seen as usual going down the chimneys. .He will be especially ac tive with THE NEWS' advertisers, as we have advised him 4 that he will find the best assortments and the host, stocks in these stores that keep themselves before the public. , a ta v AN APPROPRIATE PRESENT FOR CHRIgTMAS-HE NEWS; tittS tjtow.cj mnrlPBtIvBiiErirests that no more acceptable Christmas gift" could' be' made to sopne one ftway -.
