England and between that of extreme partisans France forme dcommisslons to draft on either side, former President Taf t's views auract ruuen attention. William Howard Taft predicts that when the peace treaty comes before the United States senate for ratifi cation, it will provide for a league o f nations. Then the question will be: "Do you want to postpone peace because you are opposed to a league of nations?" Four great steps toward permanent peace have been accomplished by the conferees at eVrsailles through ten- i Motive planks In th covenant. Taft s(wi) TiieJr nre: prirat deduction of armament. " Second Protection against ester mil aggression. Third Agreement not to begin war until after referendum of diffi culties to the executive council. Fourth Open diplomacy. Sees Another War. 'If a league of nations covenant 1 not adopted, there will be another groat war, ten time as destructive as the one Just finished," warns Taft. "It will he a world suicide, for hu man Ingenuity has been focused on devising instruments for human des t ruction. V'The covenant reaches to the heart of'tlie cause of the Avar." he asserts. "If 'the nations unite, It will avoid most wars. Some learned senators say the covenant Is supersolvent, In that the league has only the power to recommend, and not to enforce. "This is a forced construction, for the purpose of defeating the league plan . League to Have Teeth. "When it is adopted, you will find the word 'recommend' will develop into 'command,' the word 'advise' into "direct, ' and 'propose' Into 'or der.' "It has been said thnt the cove nant endangers the Monroe doctrine. It, In fact, extends most principles of the Monroe, doctrine to the entire world." Taft says three groat classes al ready favor the league plan organ lzer abor, churches and religious folk, anil, (omen. Ilusiue men, he fears, wvrf' recalcitrant. The purpose of the treaty, he says, is to rearrange the map of middle Europe and Asia Minor m as to Insert a Czecho-Slovak state as a buffer be tween Germany and Austria, provide autonomy in Aslo Minor, Internation alize Constantinople and guard it. en large Rumania, rearrange the Balkan states and carve .ome '2o states "out of the three or four countries with whom we had to contend." Need Stability in Europe. "We must have power to maintain stability in Europe, and instability there cannot but affect our stabil ity," says Taft. "Who must main tai nthe stability,? The five great powers America. France, the British empire, Italy and Japan." lii-a world league to come later, thj proposed league of nations, now forming, will be the charter member, and will frame the constitution. a world league. Tnc united States did not. When President Wilson went abroad, be found the two tentative drafts before him. Out of them was formed the present covenant." Elaborating on the four steps, Taft pointed out that competitive arma ment was the main reason for the war. Explains Accomplishments. The provision for protection against external aggression is an an swer to Germany's militarism, Taft declares. It upholds the command ment "Thou shalt not steal." The third step, In which agreement Is made to refer differences to the excutiv council and then, after the ruling, defer war for three mouths if not satisfied, Taft praised highly. He Insists that the provision for boycott of a nation disobeying the council's edict is all powerful, although he ad mits the. anangement isn't "war proof." "Abolishment of secret treaties an dremodeling of treaties now in ef fect to conform with the open diplo macy Idea, Is a great step toward peace," says Taft. FOREVER BARRED FROM ZENSHIP. C1TI- Forty-four alien "slackers" have had their "first papers" revoked at New York, and have been Informed by n Supreme Court. Justice that they can ncvtjr be naturalized. One case, which serves as a type of all, was that of Alfred S. Andressen, a Nor wegian. He had taken out first pa pers, but when he was drafted he claimed exemption op the ground that he was still a subject of King Haa kon. The law gives the courts no choice in such cases; the "slacker" Is forever barred from citizenship. TRAIN EVERY BOY, 19 TO 29? Shall every American boy of 19 receive military training? This is the proposal that the Army War Col lege Is to make to Congress. All youths of that age will be drafted, according to this plan, un less they are excused for physical dis ability or for some other good rea son. Training is to continue not less than one year. The plan seems to do away with the National Guard. In support of the scheme, it Is ar gued that the young men will be greatly improved in every way by their year in the Army, and the Gov ernment will never again be caught unprepared to resist aggression. But it is not expected that the plan .will get through Congress without fierce opposition. itirtl . V 'IM.'VijiSvlwNijiViWViJil ifela$afel0chfo.

Splendid Shows at Auditorium Next Week The week of April 13th will be a notable one at the Auditorium The atre, Toledo. On Tuesday evening, April 15th, Mr. Cyril .uaudc, the fam ous English aclor, and a splendid company will present C. Hadtlon Chambers' latest comedy "The Sav ing Grace." The play won great suc cess in London last season and has met with equal favor on this side at the Empire Theatre, New York. The role of Blinn Corbet, a happy-go-lucky, optimistic ex-officer of His Majesty's Service, in which Mr. Maude is to be seen, is totally unlike the character of "Grumpy," in which the eminent actor appeared when he last visited this city. The character is, however, quite as distinct in type and it will undoubtedly become one of Uie most famous of Mr. Maude's many distinguished stage figures. Mr. Maude appears under the direction of the Charles tYohman Company Victor Records 18522 (feS Alcoholic Bluea 4-Bll'y Murray Salvation Lassie of Mlna1. 18524 iThat Wonderful Mother; bf Mine 1 .Henry .Burr ) 85c 8So ft ickio Mickey One-Step 1 V 18&J- V Kisses Pox-Trot .Tosenh, Smith's Trio' (I'll Say She Does Pox (Trot Your Some Pretty DoIl-fFox Trot J JA11 Star Trio' (Come On Papa Medley bne-Step Tears Fox Trot I I .
