"Is it just?" "Is it in the interest of mankind? ADVERTISE AND KEEP ALIVE Do you load it at the muzzle When you want a shot or two? Do you wind it with a watch key Like your father used to do? How'd you like to hop a horse car Like you did long years ago? Don't an auto beat an ox cart? Well, I rather reckon so. Do you argue that an hour glass Beats a Waltham all to smash? Do you use the same old system Keepin' books and countin' cash? Do you trim a goose quill neatly When you want the ink to flow? Don't you think there's been improvement In the last decade or so? Tell us are you advertising In the same old foolish way That your granddad did before you And persist "It doesn't pay?" Think the whole world knows your address? "Cause it hasn't changed in years?" Wouldn't the pathos of such logic Drive a billygoat to tears? Just a card is all you care for? Hidden, lonesome and unread. Like the sign upon the tombstone Telling folks that you are dead. Wake up, and take a tonic, Bunch your hits and make a drive ! Run a page and change your copy, Advertise and keep alive! Lifted. This is the challenge that no previous generation ever dared to give ear to. So many things have happened so fast in the last four years that I do not think many of us realize what it is that has hap pened. Think how impossible it would have been to get a body of responsible statesmen seriously to entertain the idea of the organi zation of a League of Nations four years ago! And think of the; change that has taken place! I was told before I came to h ranee that there would be confusion of counsels about this thing, and I found unity of counsel. I was told that there would be opposition, and I found union of action. I found the statesmen with whom I was about to deal united in the idea that we must have a League of Nations; that we could-not merely make a peace settlement and then leave it to make itself effectual, but that we must conceive some common organization by which we should give our common faith that this peace would be maintained and the conclusions at which we had arrived should be made as secure as the united counsels of all the great nations that fought against Germany could make them. We have listened to the challenge, and that is the proof that there shall never be a war like this again. Ladies and gentlemen, we all believe, I hope, that the spirits of these men are not buried with their bones. Their spirits live. I hope I believe that their spirits are present with us at this hour. T nnrw that T f ap! the rnmnnlsinn of their nresence. T hone that I realize the significance of their presence. Think, soldiers, of those) comrades of yours who are gone. If they were here, what would! they say? They would remember what you are talking about today. They would remember America, which they left with their high hope and purpose. They would remember the terrible field of battle. They would remember what they constantly recalled in times of danger, what they had come for, and how worth while it was to give their lives for it. And they would say, "Forget all the little cir cumstances of the day. Be ashamed of the jealousies that divide you. We command you in the name of those who, like ourselves, have died to bring the counsels of men together, and we remind you what America said she wras born for.

G. Meyers Carson City, Nevada.. DEMOCRATS WILL FIGHT LONG RECESS ing a recess instead of an adjournment sine die, the Republicans would make it impossible for the president to call congress back in extraordinary session. Should congress adjourn with a part of the administration's legislative program not acted upon, some Re publicans fear the president would issue a proclamation calling con gress back, which would be embarrassing politically to the major ity party. Several progressive Republicans in the senate are likely to join with the Democrats in opposing an early recess. These Republi cans are particularly interested in the bill for the regulation of the meat packing industry, the Johnson-Nolan minimum wage bill and i the bill designed to check profiteering in shoes. These measures have been held up in committee, or displaced on the calendar, and Republican progressives are beginning to wrangle with the G. O. P. leadership for sidetracking such meas ures. Senator Kenyon of Iowa, has been particularly severe in his criticism of non-action on the packer bill. Democrats of both houses believe that congress should do some thing to meet the high cost of living problem before it quits work for the summer. It is recalled that the president in his message last fall suggested several remedies that might be invoked to check profiteering and bring down the cost of living. The president's recommendations, however, have so far not been put into law by the Republican congress, nor has the president's recommendation for a readjustment of the taxation laws been acted upon. Inequal ities in the taxation laws, now that the war is over, is declared to be one of the reasons for the high living cost and there is sentiment for a revision of the excess profits tax, but it has been impossible to obtain action from the party in control of congress. That there will be a hard fight when the Republicans attempt to quit Washington early in June to remain away three or four months seems certain. Adjournment will not only be opposed by Democrats, but probably by some of the progressive Republicans. TOPICS IN BRIEF spirit to a service that is not easy, to resist counsels that are hard to resist, to stand against purposes that are difficult to stand against, purposes that are difficult to stand against, and to say, "Here I stand, consecrated in spirit of the men who were once my comrades, and who are now gone, and who left me under eternal bonds of fidelity."
