As given in the news, President
Wilson is resting on the George
Washington ant is speding to
France, He applies his time to the
greatest limit of rereation and ap
plies himself only to such affairs of
government as are required from
him. fn resting , he proposes to
reach France in the fullest. vigor .of
his manhood, and on arriving in
Paris will resume his activity in th,,
peace conference. The Bristol Press
gives assurance to President Wil

the same time th.r., is being sug

New Orleans Item: some disquiet
has been caused among relatives of
the troops of the first seven divis
ions, which are now in Germany,
by the designation at army head
quarters of these divisions as "regu
lar army divisions" and the intima
tion that these will be the last to
return home. "All troops except the
regular army units," says headquar
ters, "are going home practically in
the same order in which they came
Except for the numbers, these are
not "regular army units." They com
prise 25 per cent regular army men
and 75 per cent volunteers and na
tional army soldiers. The United
States has not enough of its regular
army in France for two divisions.
The men in these divisions were
among the first to arrive in France,
had the longest service on the battle
line and sustained the heaviest cas
ualties. Their retention abroad out
of their regular turn appears unjust.

A Betterment of Conditions.
There was held last night in the
Council Chamber of the City Hall a
meeting of owners of property lo
cated in the restricted district. In
attendance were members of the
Anti-Vide Commission and members
of the City Council. W. G. Hudson
of the Anti-Vice Commission was
called to preside. The purpose of
the meeting was to discuss and to
devise the ways and the means for
the betterment of the district by
transforming it from a discreditable
to a reputable district. There were
offered several suggestions and the
necessity and importance of organ
izing the property owners into a
5 company was stressed successfully.
There' was named J. G. Hirsch, L,
D Romagoso and M. T. Rosenblath a
committee on permanent organiza
2 tion. There was appointsd a com
I mitten on constitution and by-laws
2 comprising J. G. Hirsch. J. H. Bo
8 denheimer and H. S. Lavine, who
are to report at the adjourned meet
dng to be held In the City Hall on
r. Thursday, March 13.
There are a number of. vacani
lhoues in the district which the or
ganmattion will try to have filler
with desirable- occupants. Thi
