GREAT LITTLE BALL PLAYER Only One Thing Wrong With Mary Ellen Was That, as a Pitcher, She Lacked Control. Four-year-old Mary Ellen dearly loves to play with her seven-year-old brother and his little friends. To make herself what he labels a "good fellow," she imitates all their traits. Now she is permitted to go with them outside and play outside games. And recently they have began to play ball. Mary Ellen's part in this has been for the most part chasing stray balls. But in her heart she aspires to be a pitcher. And the oth er day when her mother was out in the yard she exhibited her ability in that line. "Don't you think I pitch good, mother?" she asked. "Why, .I throw out my leg every time I throw the ball-Just like the man did out at the ball park." And she did, too, every time, though the ball went wild and landed quite in the opposite direction from which it had been aimed.-Exchange. Age Rapidly. "Is that a genuine antique?'

The soldier relief bill was passed Saturday by the house, 289 to 92, and sent to the senate.

The board expressed tIe view that there has been no change in the underlying conditions responsible for the high cost of liv ing. President Wilson vetoed the peace resolution Thursday and informed congress he could not become a party to the peace program framed by re publican leaders of the senate and house, because he considered it would put an "ineffaceable stain" on the nation's honor. To establish technical peace by such a method, the president said, in his veto message, would be to effect a "complete surrender of the rights of the United States so far as Germany is concerned" and to relin quish all the high purposes which led the nation into war and which were embodied in the rejected treaty of Versailles. Colonel William Cooper Procter, Cincinnati manufacturer, described as "the angel of Major General Leonard Wood's Ohio campaign," testified Thursday at the senate investigation of preconvention political financing that he had advanced $500,000 to Wood's national organization.

Lacking 29 votes of the necessary two-thirds, the house failed Friday to pass the Knox resolution to end the war with Germany and Austria, over President Wilson's veto.
