Movement for Such a Purpose Has
....Been Launched in New York.
NEW YORK, March 16. A move
ment was launched here today to es
tablish a perpetual memorial in honor
of Woodrow Wilson "the man who
projected Into the world the Idea of
the league of nations."
After listening to an eulogy of the
former president by John Drinkwater,
English playrlght, some 000 men and
women voted unanimously to appoint
a temporary committee to work out
details of the memorial. Franklin D.
Roosevelt, democratic vice presiden
tial candidate In the last election,
who presided at the gathering, was
appointed chairman of tho committee
with Henry Morgenthau, former am
bassador to Turkey, treasurer.
Although the form the memorial Is
to take was not definitely decided up
on. It was suggested that a minimum
sum of $500,000 be raised as a trust
fund, the proceeds from which shall
be awarded each year to the person
who during the year has made the
greatest contribution toward inter
Mr. Drinkwater's address was fre
quently interrupted by applause, par
ticularly when he declared that Mr.
Wilaon conceived beyond his execu
tive capacity a thing that is generally
true of all great historical figures."
"Most men,", said the speaker, "are
prone to bow in submission at the
first assault of expediency. It is the
tragedy and the glory of Woodrow Wil
son that he clung tenaciously to his
ideal regardless of personal conse
quences. "It is generally agreed," he con
tinued, "that Ills tactics were by no
means perfect. But tho strategy back
ot them made one of the greatest con
tributions to modern civilization."

A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT
UP IN MARY'S ATTIC
TONIGHT AT 7:30
IS ONE OF
Arguments in ths Wisconsin Rate Case
Were Closed Yesterday.
(By The Associated Press).
WASHINGTON. March 15. Argu
ments in the Wisconsin rate case, de
scribed by some participating attor
neys at "the most Important state's
rights Issue before the supreme court
in many years," were closed today
after having held the attention of the
court 'for three days.
M. B. Olbrioh, special counsel for
Wisconsin, summed up for that state
and for the 42 other states which pclned
with Wisconsin in opposing the au
thority to supervise state rates
claimed by the interstate commerce
commission under the transportation
act of 1920
1. J. tarreli, appearing
sion, cited specific instances of al
leged discriminations against Inter
state rates when a state was allowed
to maintain lower schedules within its
border. As a result, he said, so far as
revenues of the carriers were con
cerned "interstate commerce is con
verted into intrastate." He denied
that the' commission had acted "arbi
trarily" in raising rates, citing Its In
vitation to state commissions to enter
the hearings, and argued that adequate
authority for its action could be found
in the commerce act, under which the
commission was organized.
A new angle was given the case to
day when, in a supplemental brief,
counsel for the various states attacked
the commission's order for Increased
rates as providing revenues far in ex
cess of the amount guaranteed the
carriers under the transportation act.
In the western territory, the brief said,
nn Increase of 6.4 per cent in passen
ger fares would have been sufficient
to return 6 per cent on the road's
agreed valuation, Instead of the 20 per
cent Increase ordered.

SHARP BREAK IN
Believes That the Deadlock Has Been
Broken and Sales Will Be Re
ported. 6AVANNAH, Ga., March 15. The
osiii market broke sharply this af-
rternoon when I and below was quoted
at $4.25 a barrel. It has been quoted
at $11 since Nov. 12 of last year. The
saje of rosin was in the lower grades
and was as follows;
Starting with I, 135 barrels; II. 370;
G. 505; E, 464; D, 311; B, 115, making
a total of 2,203.
It was privately stated that over
10,000 barrels have been sold at the
price or a little in advance before the
2,203 was reported, but these other
sales were not made public.
It is believed the deadlock in rosin
has been broken and from now on
there will be sales reported, but it is
expected the future sales will be a lit
tle higher than $4.25 a barrel.
Turpentine dropped from 54 1-2 cents
to 50 and 50 1-2 cents, with sales of
"TOMORROW" IS THEME
AT CHRISTIAN CHURCH
The theme of the minister's 6ermon !
last night at the Christian church was
the word "Tomorrow." The text se
lected was the- verse found in F.xodus
8:10. The speaker said: Tomorrow has
jio real existence. It never comes. Pro
crastination :narks the way to ruin.
Because of the influence of our lives
we should not delay being followers of
! Ch'ist. That influence shoukl be used
.aiong those among whom we come in
' contact day by day.
Because delays are dangerous one
should not put off being a Christian. A
more convenient season will never come.
It is useless to wait until every condi
tion is favorable, for that will never be.
To listen especially to the Gospel mes
sage, and yet not obey it, only adds to
the responsibility of the hearer when he
stands before the judgment bar of God.
Every man and woman is sa ing u
treasure somewhere. ' If the treasures
we lay up are all earthly they will
perish. Because man sliould be plan
ning for treasures In Heaven he should
obey the message of the Gospel and ar
ray himself on the side of right.
Because of the brevity of life one
should not put off obeying the messagro
of God. No insurance company can
promise that you will be alive tomorrow.
We all recognize the uncertainty of life.
Do not delay, choose for God and eter
nal life before it is too late.

solos again last night. Thefte solos have

TIME TO FACE THE FACTS
"So much has been said against the
use of patent medicines that I have
had a strong prejudice against them.
But after four years' doctoring with
six .different doctors, without results,
for acute indigestion, gastritis, consti
pation, appendicitis and other ail
ments, I was said to possess. I was en
couraged to try Mayr's Wonderful
Remedy, seeing what it had done for
a friend similarly afflicted. I also was
entirely relieved of my trouble, and
am sure this medicine will do all and
more than is claimed for it." It is a
simple, harmless preparation that re
moves the catarrhal mucus from the 1
intestinal tract and allays the inflam- i
ma tion which causes practically all
stomach, liver and intestinal ailments,
including appendicitis. One dose will
convince or money refunded. Adv.
