In con vention hero to-day wore urged liy Pres ident Han Johnson of the American Leagues to follow n "hands off" policy In tho baseball wiir mid to tuko no notion that would he partisan to either side. President Johnson, hero for tho an nounced purposo of preventing tho minors from joining with tho new National League In the Lasher plan of reorganiza tion, addressed tho convention this after noon, Proponents of the now league nnd tho f,askor plan will appear later, Tho political shako-up In tho National association of minor leagues, which It was rumored was being engineered by tho faction said to he favorable, to President Johnson In tho baseball war, failed to materialize John II. Farrell was re-elected Hccrotary and treasurer for ten years nnd Mlko Fcxton of Hock Island, was re elected president, but will not accept or reject tho offlco until to-morrow. Efforts wore made to have Sexton re place Fnjrell as, sccrotary, tho chief of fice, but not enough votes wero mustered. It is planned, however, to give Hexton n alnry of $5,000 a year. Heretofore ho lervod without compensation, John II. Mnrttn of Memphis, Tenn., president of tho Southern association, was elected vice-president. Preliminary to election, tho league pres idents discussed the advisability of re questing State Legislatures to pass a rtrict law providing for prison sontences for persons convicted of bribing' a base ball player to "throw" games. The pro posal was referred to n committee on res olutions which meets to-morrow. Previous to his address before tho con vention. President Johnson Issuod a state ment declaring that "It wna wnr to a finish" and that tho American League would place new clubs In Chicago, New York and Boston to replace those joining the New Notional League. "What baseball needs Is to got rid ot aomo of Us recalcitrant club owners." he raid. President Johnson, In his address, characterized A. D. Laskor ot Chicago sponsor of tho Laskor plan for baseball reorganization as "ono who has not shed hlo swaddling clothes in baseball" and declared that the minors should not show any partiality to cither sldo In tho major league illsputo. "Tho American League does not come hero with tho thought of asking you to rarrv any of our burdens," President Johnson said. "It must ho clear to you thai you hhoulri pursuo a central course showing no favor or partiality to either. "Thoro Is a question as to whether thero will bo nny nerloua difficulties to Adjust, but I bellovo my position should bo mado clear. I think you should have equal representation on the national board and that you should have oqual power with tho American and National Leagues. AVo can otter you no more at this time. I have been authorized by our board of directors to request you to ap point a committee of three to meet rommlttoo of tho same number from the ' National and American Leagues to reor . ganlza the game and all the differences i (should be swept aside in view of tho seii ous condition that confronts baseball." STATE OF VERMONT PERCIVAL W. CLEMENT, Governor A Proclamation The fathers have left us an annual custom of great worth. The boys who returned from the trenches and the memory of their comrades have preserved it. Thanksgiving is the family holiday, sacred in Us significance. It is exceedingly valuable to pause in this hurried world to do a little real thinking and to reflect, upon our opportunities, successes and bUssings. Our Country each day withstands much complaining and some criticism and it is well In appreciate its strength, its ideals and its achievements, human and continuon. It is encouraging to note the widespread manifesta tion of earnest thought and deliberation in striving to determine a procedure that shall quench smoldering difficulties and promote world peace. The more the vihole people think, the farther the Nation journeys toward constructive progress. Prayer U the survey of our ideals. Through this past year the inhabitants of our own State have been blessed with peace and prosperity. Our daily labors have brought us bountiful rewards. We are slowly recovering from the effects of the H'orfd War. Law and order arc supreme within our borders. Let us thank God for the blessings we have received, look into our hearts and pray that prosperity ma.y con tinue with us and that the rights of liberty which we enjoy may be preserved to tw and to our children forever. To thai end I, PERCIVAL IV.

But tho increases In these States are much smaller on an avorago than those In the western States. All of the other States show decreases In the number of farms. This means not only thnt tho number of farms In New lOngland and the northeast generally Is decreasing, but that the number of farms In the Middle West, tho traditional 1 granary of America. Is decreasing. Tho West, then, Is doing moro than Its sliaro I to feed America. The South Is doing I much, but the average Increasu in that ' section scarcely keeps up with the ln- and the northeast are steadily falling behind In food production.

Informal Democratic conference being held hero, worn somewhat upset to-day by tho announcement by Thomas Tag gart, defeated candidate for United States senator from Indiana, that Governor Cox of Ohio, late presidential aspirant, Sena tor Pat Harrison of Mississippi nnd him self would start on a hunting trip In Alabama Immediately. Mr. Tnggart departed this afternoon for Louisville. Ky where ho will meet tho I Ohio governor and Senator Harrison. 1 From Louisvlllo they will go direct to ' Alabama where they expect to remain for two weeks. The Tammany Hall leaders who are here, held numerous conferences to-day. ' behind closed doors, but nothing was mado public concerning them. Later It was announced that nothing of political significance was nttached to tho confer ejjee. Governor Alfred U. Smith of Now Tork and a largo party arrived here late lact night. Included in the New York governor's party aro Charles M. Winchester of Albany. John If. Gil christ, commissioner of licenses In Now York, and William A. Humphrey of Albany. A large delegation' ot Republicans, In also hero taking a resl following tho rigors of the presidential campaign A celebration Is scheduled to bo held to-morrow by a. party of fifty-five Illinois Republicans, headed by Mayor Thompson of Chicago, Including Leu Small, tho new governor-elect, and Colonel Frank T, Smith, chairman of tho Illinois Republican State commit tee. Several Democratic leaders from dif ferent aectloiiH of tho country aro scheduled to arrive hero to-morrow. WHY WEST LEADS What, then, am tho conditions which have kept the West In a state of grow ing agricultural productiveness when tho rest of the country has becomo decadent In that respect? No doubt the rich young soil of the region Is one reason. No doubt another reason i that there are fower Industrial plants to attract men to the cities. Neither of these conditions can he arti ficially altered, of course. The West Is Inevitably tho moro productive part of the country, and its prime business Is food production, while tho East is given more and more to manufacture. Hut rich soil and room are not the only favorable conditions which account for the Increase In the West. In the West there are both State and Federal re clamation projects upon which a man can got good land for reasonable prices on long time credit. And State lawa In tho West are far more favorable to the farmer than In most eastern States. Those who are Inclined to decry the Non partisan League, which enables fnrmcra to own their own grain elevators and otherwlso to exercise much control over the marketing of their products, may bo Interested to know that In North Dakota, Its homn and point of origin, the num ber of farms increased 4.fi por cunt, whllo In Minnesota, where It has a headquart ers, the number of farms Increased UA per cent. The northwest In general is the sec tion of the country where tho farmers are most progressive and most success ful In getting the legislation they want and In cooperative movements. And all of tho northwestern States show largo Increases In the number of farms. Mon tana leads them with an Increase of 113 per cent. Oregon shows an Increase of 10.3 per cent and Washington of IS por rent. NATIONAL GRANGE OPENS CONVENTION Boston, Nov, 10. Business occupied tho delegates to tho annual meeting of the National Grange, Pations of Husbandry at forenoon and afternoon and evening sessions to-day, At. tho opening session National Master Sherman .1 Lowell of Fredonla, N Y , delivered the master's address, and reports of national and State officers followed. W. N. Giles, master o fth New York State Grango, described tho operations of the farmers' exchange established by tho New York Grango In cooperation with the Dairymen's Lcaguo anil the Fcdorntlon of Farm llureaus, which ho characterized as "The greatest project ever undertaken by farmers," Through tho building of storehouses, and mills, he said, the ex change wus propurod to recoivo the grains of tho Western farmer and dis tribute them to the eastern buyer "at a margin ho close that the western farmer and his eastern customer are brought Into friendly and Intlmnto rontact with mu tual benefit. He urged that the exchnngu be extended Into a national enterprise. Pennsylvania organized K Granges dur ing the last year, State Master John A. ' McSparran roiorled, and mnde h net gain of 8,000 In membership. Hi; WAS RIGHT The Sunday school teaohcr was test ing tho children's knowledge of the Scriptures, The answers werr generally satisfactory until he put tho question: "Where does the word 'holy' first occur In the niblo?" "Phase, sir." piped up ono little fellow, "on Uio cover." Boston Transcript. (By Frederic .1. Haskln) Washington, D. C. Nov. C While population of the United States has creasod 10 per cent or more during last 10 years, the number of farms In the country has barely Increased at all only 1.4 per cent, to bo exact. This fact, that the amount of land Which Is being cultivated la not Increas ing as fast as Is the population, has been pointed out before, but it Is Interesting to note that the census officially confirms It, and also to note Just whero tho in creases and decreases lie. It also seems especially pertinent to set forth these facts right now. Neither of the major parties seoms to be taking very much account of them. Tho appointment of a "real dirt farmer" for Secretary of Agri culture has been put torward by tho poli ticians as a remedy. Legislation has also been recommended, and will probably be passod, allowing farmers to organize for purposes of selling and buying. Nothing more Is heard of tho project which wan put forward so vigorously during tho war, for tho government to create moro farms out of swamps, stumplands, and deserts. Meantime, thero is every prospect that. unless something la done, our facilities for pioduclng food will soon fall far below our needs. In 1DU0 It was found that tho number of farms 'md increased about 10 per cent In 10 years, which pro bably meant that the amount of land cultivated was Increased about as faat as the population. This year the num ber of farms only Increasod about a sixth as much as tho number of people. The next census may well show a de crease In the number ot farms, unless something is done In the meantime. WHY MEN WON'T FARM It has been widely stated and Implied that the reason for the dwindling num ber ot farms In this country and for tho tendency of the food supply not to in crease as fast an the population. Is found In the unwillingness of the young men to go on the farms or to stay thore. This, no doubt, ts the reason. But the Implication Is that they spurn the farms, not because farming Is unprofitable, but bocause they prefer bright lights, mov ing pictures and all tho other alleged allurements of our great Industrial cities. Representative of farmer otg.-uilza-tlons say this Is not so. They say that tno country is tun or men wno are nui n-..;j., I- tri. o l . i. o merely wining but anxious' to farm, if ! President-Elect Spends the En- only they can make a good living at It. They say that this is often Impossible, except whero the land is rich, trans portation facilities of the best, and all other circumstances favorable They say, further, that It Is very hard for the man who wants to farm to get a farm. Farmlands are held at very high prices In this country, many thousand acres of them lying Idle. To buy un improved land and to put It under cul tivation Is simply not a payl proposi tion, It Is said, except on a largo scale, and not always then, In other words, tho man who has or ran borrow a few thousand dollars cannot profitably In vest It In farmlands, and that Is one very good If not all-sufficient reason why the number of farms has not Increased. WHAT FIGURBS SHOW This view of the matter seems to be sustained In a way by the census figures. Thoy show the increase or decrease In the number of farms In each State. Theso figures prove that the number of i farms Is decreasing In nearly all of tho northeastern States, and In many of the southern and Middle Atlantic Statos, and that It Is Increasing, In somo parts very rapidly, In the West. Of course, ono would expect to find tho greatest Increase In the West, where there are still public lands and relative ly sparse population. Even so, the ra-Md Increase In tho Wost would eer tah.ly show that men aro willing to farm where they ca'n got hold of land and farm It at a profit. And tho post tlve decrease In the Fast would suroly seem to prove that men arc being dis couraged In that section. Tho western Btates which show an In crease In tho number of farms aro Ari zona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming, that Is, practically all of the far western States excopt New Mexico, Tly OAV1D LAWn V.fi t'K (Copyright 1920 by Free Press) Marlon. Ohio. Nov. 7. President elect Hnrdlne left on his vacation trip with a fooling that the big prop lems that will face him In his ailmlnls (ration will be hotter tackled after a thorough rest and complete detach inent from tho atmosphere of politic" In which he h.-us for so many monthfl hoon enveloped Tho president-elect leaves behind as cxpeatant a body of townsfolk as ever sent a man to the White House. Thoso who have known Harding for years know his ovory fault and his every strong point, are united In tholr expres nlons of confidence that he will "make good." They base It entirely on his happy faculty of making friends and keeping them. Ho has- a splendid amount of tact and good taste. He makes people lllco him. Nobody In Marlon except of course the extreme hero worshippers, be llnveB Warren Harding to be a genius, He Is looked upon how'evcr, as capable of surrounding himself with good men and getting help from him. All sum mer long he has had advisers galoro and whllo It Is useless to say ho haw been Influenced altogether by outside minds for on many occasions he has made decisions contrary to everybodr else's advice. It Is a fact that he haw availed himself of such advice as he has thought good and rejected what he thought unwise. Another thing: The next admlnlstra tlon will be a "first name" admlnls tratlon That moans simply that thero will be seoios of people who will bo able to call the new president Warren and thero will be even more folks who will bo called Harry, Dlok or Tom as the case may be. Warren Harding Is ono of those human persona who Isn't expected to change when he (rots Into the White House. He will not ohange as so many presidents have on reach ing thp White House If Mrs. Warren Harding has much to say about things -and everybody seems to be agreed that she will have a great deal to say. She has tho happy way or staying gen uine and breathing spontanlety. There Isn't a neighbor In Marion who has yet seen anything up-stnge about Mrs. Harding. She was Just the same to the home folks after the Chicairo conven tion as before and she Is just tho same after election, and It Is a safe, guess that she will be the same at tho Whlto House. There Is something delightful about tho personality of the President-elect, which impresses any newcomer. He makes a much better impression In his private talks with newspaper men than in hlB public speeches. Somehow he feels tho restraint of public speaking much moro than most men do. Among the most Interesting Incidents of tho past week have been tho talks between the Presi dent-elect and the newspaper men In tho little shack which has been press head quarters throughout the campaign. Warren Harding smokes a clgaretto and likes to chew tobacco. That's a relic really of early days In tho print shop, where the idea grew up that chewing helped to keep the dust down. Warren Harding Is a typical American. He doesn't affect the statesmanlike poses which one sees so often in the attitude of public men. Ho says "mebbo," when others might say "may ho." He talks with tho drawl of a countryman rather than the precision of the drawing room conversationalist. He tells a good Htory and onjoys hearing one. Ho know life in its every aspect and will probably get along better with the members of Sen ate and House than any president In re cent years because he knows how to handle congressmen. He was Just a bit disturbed by the overwhelming size of tho Republican majorities In both Houses. Ho wondered if they wouldn't bp too unwioldly. But on the other hand, it wns suggested by others who have been gossiping with London, Nov, 9. Captain Kmmot Kll- patrlck, representative of tho American Red Cross In South Russia and two nurses were brutally killed during a Bol shevik cavalry raid on Snlkovo station, saya a Sobaatopol dispatch to Renter, Ltd,, to-night. Washington. Nov. ft. Reports readied the Statu department to-day that Cap tain Krimctt Kllpatrlck of tho American Bed Crss. and C, Atechny of the. Men- nonlte Relief society, had been captured In tile soviet advanco In southern Russia hut no mention was mode ot tho possible death of olther ono. It was believed that tho recent assertion of tho soviet govern mcnt that an "American mission" headed by "General Morel" had been captured by their troops was founded on the capture of Kllpatrlck. Kllpatrlck was last seen, tho advices said, at Novoaleelovsk October 30. Mr. Atcheny, who li founder of the Mcnnon- Ite Relief society, landed at Halbcrstadt October 2E, Kllpatrlck, formerly publisher of country newspapor, served with tho American army In France an lieutenant of field urtlllory ana after the armis tine as chief of tho supply division o tho Amnrtoan commission to nogotlato peace Ho obtained his discharge from the army In Paris In September 1919 and becamo connected as a civilian with the peaoe commission. When the commission was dissolved, Kllpatrlck Joined the Lithuanian army as a captain along wltn s number o other Americans nnd saw several months of active service on th Lithuanian-Bolshevik battle front When the fighting ended, he asked fo hlf discharge and returned to Paris to Join the American Red Cross in 192 and was ordered first to Constant! nople and then to Southwest Russia. In the records of tho wnr depart ment, Kllpatrlck's next of kin wa shown as Lllda M. Kllpatrlck, sister, of Camden, Alabama, "Kllpatrlck was last seen at Nov Alexelevsk on October .10 stripped t his under clothes in bitter zero weathe and being led away by Red cavalry raiders," said the State department' official announcement, given out be fore the London report of the cap tain's death was received "His fato I consequently a matter of grave con cern."
