GREENWOOD,.MISS ., JUNE 7, 1917. Near-traitors need vacations—behind bars. M M M M M M M Running the war is enough for Wilson, without scrapping with Congress. M M M M M M M Absolutely the best advertised goods ever marketed—liberty bonds. M M M M M M M If all incomes had to be earned, there would be a number of paupers in Congress. M M M M M M M Composers get busy—our army needs a rip snorting, blood-stirring song of victory. M M M M M M M If the punishment be made to fit the crime, there will be less anti-government plotting. mmmmmmmm Still another war has been declared—that of the Department of Agriculture on crop insects. M » » » » » » Fifty-six years from start to finish—that march of the Confederates to capture Washington. M » » » » » » McAdoo is making a closing whirlwind talking tour to cinch over-subscription of liberty bonds. M M M M M M M. To the average man all figures are too doggon ed big except those opposite his name on the pay 5640 • Yea». roll. While the Federal government is only getting ready to fight, East St. Louis has pulled off a battle.

M » » » » » » And still there are men of military age who prefer a swivel chair job to either soldiering or fanning. M M M M M M M Sure, Kaiser Bill was right when he said he would fight on to a complete victory—victory for the allies. Twould be restful for the rest of us, if all the the butt-in gabsters, regardless of age, could be conscripted. m » » » » » n The people are keeping close tabs on every man in Congress who isn't honestly backing up the commander-in-chief. M M M M M M M Nevertheless and notwithstanging, there is crookedness going on with which German secret agents have nothing to do. M M M M M M M It is about as easy, and as safe, to try to stop a buzz saw with naked hands as to try to stop the operation of the draft law. M»»»»»*** By the way, girls, you can help Uncle Sam by letting it become known that you'll turn a cold eh ^ iidpr to those who ask exemption. mmmmmmmm No matter how keen a sense of humor the careful housewife may have, you can t make her laugh at jokes about the cost of living. ,*M»»»»» M " A hit that scored two runs and won a ball game changed private Charlie Taft's dad-given nickname—"birdling"—to "fence-buster." M M M M M M M Those foolish enough to think they can refuse to register and get away with it will have plenty of time to be sorry after they're locked up. M » » » » * * No change the Senate Finance Committee can make in the House war tax bill will stop the hollering"—it goes along with all tax bills. M M M » » » M In spite of his name, we are assured by good authority that Felix Frankfurter, Secretary Bak er^ new confidential advisor, is not a German. »»»»»»» Another fool query—Senator McCumber's res olution asking the Navy department to tell the Senate what it's doing through inventions to curb U-boats. 41 M M M M M » » nation-wide Hoover has already become a hoimehold word, though Congress has not yet giv the authority needed to carry out his pldns to lower the prices of food. mm»»»»» The President sounded the keynote of the war ' when he said, "America will show the world that itowas born to serve mankind."

M M M M M M M The Russian government has learned that two heads are not better than one. mmmmmmmm Berlin says there has been no trace of any new devices against the subs as yet. L m . ... , . ., . ,, to Somebody is unkind enough to say that all the babies he has ever met were bad ones. M M » » » » » to Sherman said it was war but our idea of it is to forget something that you had to do. M M M M M M M Well, boys, the registering is done ; now brace and don't get a grouch, if you're not selected. M M M M M M » up, "Don't shave ; save soap" is a new French slo gan that we opine will not appeal strongly to our barbers. ] I M M M M M M M Much as we dislike to say it there are men in Congress who ought to be tried for treason, if they, are not. j ; j No resolutions of sympathy for the Chicago butter lords indicted by a Federal grand jury have Next thing Wilson may be finding it necessary. to issue a proclamation requesting all communi ties to keep their war cranks at home.

I M M M M M M M Wilson doesn't "cuss," or he might be tempted 1 to say to Congress what Farragut said to one of his officers—"D-n the torpedoes ; go ahead." M M M H M ^ jM Employers need not wait for a law to be enact ed_they are all free to follow the example of the Pennsylvania railroad in taking sex out of the pay envelope. Men and times change. Instead of trying to get the boys of Europe out of the trenches, Hank Ford is doing his bit to hurry our boys into them, j M M M M M M M Ne'mind about which state furnished the most soldiers in the civil war, it is which is going to furnish the most for the world-liberty war that Uncle Sam wants to know. M M M M M M M Says Gertrude Atherton: The perfect wom is forty, is married and is the mother of five children. No, we don't know her age or the num ber of her children. an The former American ambassador to Germany says the people of that country are sticking to the Kaiser, and that if we rid them of imperialism we will have to beat them all. M M M M M M M The army has sent out a call for several thous and bakers to serve during the term of the war. Patriotism on the part of some bakers suggest that they stay out of the army. MMMRhlkM Should one of our distinguished European visitors write a book on the U. S. A. while his im pressions are' fresh, it would be the biggest collec tion of bouquets ever brought together. M M M M M M M We imagine there are a lot of solidere in the trenches in France who would not mind permitt ing some Americans to have the honor of holding the line, while they recuperate. M M M M M M M A new explosion, named terrorall, has been invented. A millionth gipin blew a heavy mortar to bits, according to the discoverer. At least, no trace of the mortar has been found. Maximilian Harden suggests a peace by agree ment for the sake of humanity. A lot of Social ists are doing the same thing, but where has hu manity a champion among the nations at war. RRMBMM» A good sign from Russia is that all leaders are asking for an advance, and a better one is that Berlin and Vienna reports cannonading by the Russian batteries.
