Tuesday was a proud day for for Mississippi soldiers and for the state as a whole, for it was then that the state registered its Drotest against the anti-war course of our Junior Senator and proved itself loyal to the cause of the allies in the world war. Notwithstanding his strong hold on the affections of the voters ol the state, Senator Vardaman was able to secure the endorse ment of little more than 35,000 voters. At the same time, 55,000 voter registered their dis approval of his course. This is an addition of only three or four thousand to the strength of the normal vote against the Senator, There remains a silent vote o some forty or fifty thousand to be taken into account. These last represent the boys in uni form and that part of the nor malVardaman strength whi:h refused to endorse his course in the senate. These last, also may be added to those endorsing the course of the administration in the war, thus giving a majority for the cause for which the country stands of about 3 to !. Then, too, many of those who voted for the Senator were led to believe that it was all a mis take about a vote for Senator Vardaman being a vote of con demnation of President Wilson's Administration, and others Ioya! .1 f d arge. rrom tue expression or. the voters at the polls and what we know of the people as a kliole, we conclude that Missis ii)i is 19 per cent loyal. w.s.s. 1 Notice to Subscribei-s w.s.s.- taxec--.

The most important is what is known as the "Ma' Power Bill", and next is tht "Revenue Bill.'' Both are ur nt and will likely have tin right of way. The "Man Power Bill" pro vitles for changing the draf . age3 from 21 to 31 to the ages o: 18 to 45. The War Department has worked out a scheme foi raising and supplying an arm. large enough to bring the wai to a quick close, and it may ultimately require all the mer within the specified ages to dc this but we hardly think it likeb that congress will leave the ag as low as 18. - It is the experience in all war.' that boys from 18 to 21 and evet younger make the best fighters Perhaps for this reason th Secretary of War has wanted the age set at 18 all along. H failed to get it in the first draft law, and is trying again. Wf believe it would be well to put the ages at 20 to 55 for the pres ent and lower the ages only when it is seen to be necessary w.s.s.

The placing of the Bell telephone system at the disposal of the government, a3 was done when war broke out, involved the same patriotic obliga tion. . ; . , During the months of military preparedness, the War and Navy Departments had the service of the most comprehensive and efficient telephone system in the world. And it must be kept so. In the face of the unprecedented demand from pri vate sources, every government need must and will be met. The government comes first, but we are do ing everything that science can suggest and that money 'can accomplish to maintain our general service', at the usual standard of efficiency. A loyal organization is working continuously to meet the increased demands and your patient co-operation will prove helpful and inspiring. Telephone users can help by avoiding useless conversation and by encouraging their employes and associates to use the telephone only when necessary during ths busy hours of the day, and to make their conversations brief With thi3 patriotic attitude of the public to ward us we can 'serve the government first and render a' service that will meet the requirements of the commercial and social world.
