This organization consists of ac tive members (called comrades,) and in addition thereto an honorary membership consisting of persons who performed distinguished or faithful service or engaged in ef forts for the relief of disabled and suffering soldiers and saliors, or who to a consplcious extent became in terested in promoting the moral welfare and physical comfort of < , THE BEST PERFORMING OVEN EVER BUILT _ 5Tj H ■ >» l. .qVlfll' | m RP GT' Heartor HicfRivads In oven is the RoxirvdOakCl Kc the f f>lacmnc\^ iKQUIP fc'Ln s ALWAYS I: spic Amo7^ span — 0 ill lij w/inw We do not hesitate to state that . the Round Oak Chief Bolter Iron Range is the best baking range on the market.

GREATER RED CROSS FUNDED Unified Action by Societies of the World Proposed. PLANS APPROVED BY WILSON H. P, Davison Gives in Outline at Paris Banquet Red Cross Program for World Welfare—Distress in All Nations to Be Relieved—Epidemics to Be Combated—Central Bureau at Geneva. Members of the peace delegations of all the powers Interested in the pro posed league of nations and ambassa dors and ministers from various coun tries, with several hundred newspaper representatives from allied and neu tral countries, at a dinner in Paris recently heard H. P. Davison of the American Red Cross announce In out line international Red Cross plans for world welfare.' Mr. Davison has been , named chairman of a committee of Red Cross societies representing fhe I organizations In the United States, | Great Britain, Italy, France and Japan I "to formulate and propose to the Red ; Cross societies of the world a pro | gram of extended Red Cross activities | in the interest of humanity." j Mr. Davison read a wireless mes ; sage from President Wilson heartily approving the plans for co-ordinating and extending the efforts of the Red Cross socielies of the world. He said they contained great possibilities for lessening and preventing distress among all peoples. Mr. Davison explained and summa rized the great plans and prepara tions. 1 Di8tress Beyond Comprehension. " Tke situation In the world today Is j tragic bayond description. The dis j tress in the world Is of course greater j than ever before and beyond conipre ! hension I ' To me, therefore, It Is clear that while the leading men of the world are convened to draw up con ditions of peace there Is no man or set I ot men who can by pencil and paper | establish a peace which can endure in the presence Qt the distress throughout the world I refer of course Dr imarilv to conditions in those conn, primarily to conditions in those coun tries which have suffered directly from the war. ... , tion mRU they are at least In some de 1 gree improved.

"But our experience and studies have revealed conditions in other countries which are conducive to dis j quiet and unrest and which will con : tinue to breed a spirit of dissatisfac . lack of proper foods, but also lack of medical, scientific and general health con He then referred to the j conferences at Cannes and Geneva and continued: "Our present thought is that our flrst efforts should cover the subjects of public health and sanitation, tuber culosis, pursing, child welfare and ma laria and certain other infectious dis | eases. There would be developed at , Geneva an organization which wou\d receive from every Red Cross society in the world any information of in terest and importance bearing upon the various subjects in which they were Interested. This organization would immediately communicate such Information to every other Red Cross organization In the world. By this method the entire world would be kept fully informed of the latest and best practices In various subjects. Central Bureau at Geneva. "Any pertinent development or dis covery of importance la science would at once be transmitted to a bureau In Geneva and from there in turn im mediately transmitted to every Red Cross organization in the world. The result of this program, as we see It, may be briefly stated under three heads: "First—It would awaken the peoples in every country of the world to a sense of their obligation to their fel low men and there would naturally follow In each country an awakening to the needs within that country and a determination to meet them as far as possible. "Second—It would throw light on the darkest corners of the earth ' and would give to all the world the full benefit of scientific study and experi ence In the prevention and cure of disease. "Third—It would make possible the immediate co-operation on the part of the various organizations to render aid when necessary In the case of great disasters. "If It had been possible to effect this organization two years ago It is con ceivable that there would be going to day to the various countries now In distress supplies and aid which would give comfort to and restore to health millions of people who cannot now be cared for. No one knows how many millions have died during the last year from influenza. "One of the strongest features of the plan, as I see It, is that It encour ages all endeavor. It can create no jealousies. It conflicts with no socl etles and involves an expenditure tri fling in amount when compared with the results to be obtained."

It is reported that the Nebo district, just south of Santaquin, Utah, and the home of the old producing Eva mine, is bringing out another producer, the Nebo Lead-Silver Mining company. The property is located east of Mona, and is dose to the railroad. Relative to the lead situation, the Wall Street Journal says that business of National Lead company, although still somewhat below normal for tills season, is showing some improvement, due in part to anticipation of spring painting demand for lead products. Fig lead market is considerably firmer. The report comes from the Bingham Black Hawk mines that some good lead carbonates are coming into the face of the main tunnel, which is cross cutting a big fissure. This is taken as assurance of mineralization of the ground, with indications pointing to un increase in value as progress is made. , Butte & Superior has fallen upon unhappy days—in murked contrast to the war prosperity period of 1915-1916. when, for the two years, net profits totaled over $18,000,000.

English litera ture is taught more thoroly in the public schools and colleges than American literature, which leads the growing mind to look to English masters as the last word when It comes to using our common lingo. Well, about two years ago we were taking lessons in war from the English; but it may safely be said now that America has found several phases of new independence during the hostilities. We have even built an independent merchant all( j re jy lnore on Yankee ingenuity fn the use of English. We have .learned the language. The tools are j n our possession ,anil if anyone wants to know badly enough to make a ljlt ot a search, we have plenty 0 f good American models in the matter nf literary style, Americans pronounce and use English differently as compared with t] le natives of England. The French have noted it in their careful way. They call our language "American" an( i w hat the Tommies speak they call "English." If the language Is spoken in two ways it will naturally he written in two ways.
