RmaHhed His Face, "Every man must be patriotically measured," said Governor Poyle, and to illustrate how one was recently measured he told of an instance which happened on the trip in which a against autocracy, libertv aeatnnt lavery, Grant Miller, the man no the politician of old. sounded the true spirit of American freedom in every nean. "Peace without justice is in f am v." said Miller. "The man who thinks of self above country in this conflict is a traitor. The time has come and the hour has struck when no con trary actions will be tolerated." said Miller, speaking of the "conscientious objector," and the obstructor. Painting a vivid picture of the Ger man atrocities perpetuated upon the people or Belgium and Franc by iwe una uott " Miller asked for un stinted support of the- Red Cross, saying, "The dollar you give lays the nana or mercy upon the brow of American heroism." Meeting a Revelation. Although his voice was in poor condition Miller drove it to the limit and drew forth repeated applause lhe meeting was undoubtedly a revelation to those present and will have a tor-reaching effect in awak ening the people of the county to the greater sacrifices which must be made. - ... , .
