As Senator John Sharp Williams Said in the senate a few days ago, "We must send more men, we must send more guns, we must send more munitions, and we must still send more men, still more guns, still more munitions" if we are to win this war, yes, if we are to save the United States from German domination and German kultur, that damnable doc trine that teaches that the state can do no wrong, that calmly looks upon the slaughter of children as justifi tible that the state may live, that pro tects its soldiery in ouraging woman hood, that looks with approval upon ruthlessness in all forms as a matter for state justification. Yes, we need more men, more guns, more munitions and we need a whole lot less pacifist sentiment in high places in the national capital. Meridian Star. HOOVER WORKERS.

Swain Show Co., will appear In Columbus and remain the entire week, giving fny night perform-, anrps in the largest and bet equip ed tent ever devied or construct ed for a similar purpose. As n rule, the merit of each amusement enterprise that makes a bid for public patronage is measur ed up by comparison with others, but with the Swain Shows this means cannot prevail, as there are ro others of a like standard w;tn which to compare it. This attraction was primarily the outcome of dissent in the theatrical syndicate, when Mr. W. I. Swain, a prominent manager, took upon him self the herculean task of providing entertainment for the smaller towns and cities on the same colossal scale that characterizes the big trust city shows that appear in large centers of population and maintain an ad mission charge practically prohibi tive to the diversion seeker. The natural query as to how this has been accomplished is answered n two words, capacity, which makes possible a nominal admission charge, and merit, which fills the capacity. No other shows have ever ventur ed so prodigious an undertaking, con sequently the field in that class is left to W. I. Swain Show Company. HIGH SCHOOL PLAY IS MUCH ENJOYED A large size audience witnessed "The Junior," a play presented in the Stephen D. Lee 'Ifigh School r.uditoHum Friday evening.

Birth of a Nation" Coming te Princess. in his great spectacle "The Birth if a Nation," D. W. Griffith utilized i full operatic score for th; first me in its true relationship t the en largement of his varied themes. It is the Wagnerian idea fitted to the screen drama and the synchronization was so perfectly adapted to this story that it becomes a very important part of the epical form of narrative.. The score was arranged by Joseph Carl Breil who spent months with Mr. Griffith while he was making the pic ture and caught his thematic ideas in snatches of tune that Griffith would hum while he was working out his big dramatic ideas. It is perhaps the imost unusual score ever devised but is a wonderful feature in the pro duction. "The Birth of a Nation" will be at the Princess May 15 and 16. Will Cive Entertainment.
