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!

the voters at the polls and what
we know of the people as a

The Nation's Needs
Any patriotic American would glady stand
aside and give his place anywhere to an officer
on government duty.
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.
