PATRIOTIC ACTIVITIES
UNDER SOCIALIST BAN
BUENOS AIRES, Dec. 1 (by Asso
ciated Press).—The Socialist party
of Buenos Aires lias resolved to take
no part in patriotic demonstrations.
This resolution was incorporated in
its platform for the cming municipal
elections and reads:
"The districts of the capital, as
sembled in congress, rc-affirm that
our party is a party of class interna
tionally organized and that patriot
ism, or the idea of country, has
served up until now only to mis
guide the labor movement from its
true interests, and resolves that its
representatives in the deliberative
bodies abstain hereafter from tak
ing part or in any form intervening
in acts of patriotic homage.”

MLLE. VERDUN
ARISTOCRATIC
GOLD STRIPER
WASHINGTON, Dec. 1.—“Born on
the battlefield!’—this is the sobriquet
proudly worn by Mile Verdun, prob
ably the most aristocratic equine in
the United States, and only an army
mule.
No recruit is full-fledged in the
Fifteenth field artillery, now in;
Texas, until he is permitted to
groom and otherwise doll up this
regimental mascot—Introducing you
to Mile Verdun, gold striper, from
France.
She was foaled on April 16. 1918,
on the red and bloody slopes of
Verdun, just four hours after her
dam had finished hauling shells for
Battery E. Fifteenth field artillery,
Second division, she being a wheel
mare in that crackerjack battery of
the famous “Indian Head” division.
Mile. Verdun first saw the light
of day, or rather night, on this
fretful globe of ours at 3 a. in., when
the artillery fire was at its height.
She scorned to die of fright, but
thrived, and a few days later the
battery marched ten miles, and the
newborn mascot with it, under her
own power. Before she was a month
old she had hiked another thirty
miles in two days, and not a major
offensive did the Second division
pull off that Mile Verdun was not in
the thick of it. For good measure
she hiked a hundred miles to the
Rhine, keeping watch with the rest
of the Army of Occupation.
“How arc we going to get her
home?”, asked many a first-class pri
vate of the vet, and the vet passed
the buck to the quartermaster. An
ironbound ukase had gone out that
no animals or such were to go back
to the United States, even if they
were regimental mascots.
“Oh, very well,” said the boys
of Battery E. “We haven’t fought in
France two years for nothing.” And
behold, Mile Verdun, mysteriously
missing for many a day, bloomed
forth again at quarantine on this
side of the Atlantic, too late to be
sent back. There a relentless veteri
nary officer thrust her into quaran
tine, but now she is free, and queen
of all she surveys, at Camp Travis,
San Antonio, Texas, where they are
now recruiting the famous Second up
to full strength again.
If Mile Verdun were the only child
of a millionaire family she could
not be more groomed and manicured,
petted and fed than she is. To a
man the veterans of the Fifteenth
field artillery down at lively San
Antonio, where the only shell fire
one hears is the safe and easy prac
tice at the targets under summer
suns in winter, have sworn to make
her lines fall in the pleasantest pos
sible places.

CREATE RECREATION
PARK IN MONTANA
HELENA, Mont., Dec. 1 (by Asso
ciated Press).—Plans for a 5,000
acre recreation spot in the Big
Blackfoot country, north and north
east of Missoula, and northwest of
Helena, to save what are said to be
the largest trees in Montana, are be
ing promoted by the Lewis nd Clark
county commissioners. State and,
possibly, federal aid, is to be sought,
according to present plans.
The country is a picturesque one.
It abounds in yellow pines from six
to eight feet in diameter, and is a
noted fishing and hunting ground.
The land it is sought to dedicate to
public recreational purposes is most
ly privately owned, the principal
owners being the \V. A. Clark in
terests and the Anaconda Copper
Mining Company. The state also
holds some of the lands.
The proposed reserve embraces
the town of Lincoln, toward the

for forming the park is to be taken
up first with the state forester, it is
announced, and is to be taken to the
state legislature if necessary. Splen
