GIVES COST OF GREAT WAR Informs Them of Lives and Treasure Poured Out to Save Civilization. (By Mt. Clemens News Bureau) Aboard President Wilson's Special train—Carrying his war against those who oppose the adoption by the Uni ted States of the peace treaty and the covenant of the League of Nations in to their households, President Wilson last week invaded California. And there, where the question on which league opponents have ham mered the hardest, that of Shan Tung— is of most interest, the president found the same enthusiasm among the peo ple for peace and for insurance against future wars. The people want the long controversy ended. They \»ant this country to be able to again turn its undivided attention to social, economic and industrial development. Their leaders may not feel this way, btit judging from the expressions which met the president on every side.

Must Take This League. "We must take this League of Na tions," said the president, "for there is n© way in which another can be obtained withsut compelling recoiu sideration by the powera. And it would sit very ill upon my stomach to take it back to Germany for considera tion." "All over the world people are look ing to us with confidence our rivals along with the weaker nations. I pray God that the gentlemen who are de laying this thing may presently see it in a different light" Germany, the president declared, is taking new courage from our delay in ratifying the treaty and her news papers and public men were again be coming arrogantly out-spoken. Deeply impressive were the figures of the cost of the late war, in lives and dollars. It was the first time that the official statistics have been made public and the tremendous totals shocked the president's audiences. Shows Cost of World War. "The war," said President Wilson, cost Great Britain and and her Do mains $38,000,000,000 France $26,000,. 000,000 the United States $22,000, 000,000: Russia $18,000,000,000 Italy $13,000,000,000 and a total, including the expenditures of Japan, Belgium and other small countries, of $123,000, fleo.ooq* "It cost the Central Powers as fol lows: Germany $39,000,000,000 Aus tria-Hungary, $21,000,000,000 Turkey O.TU) nuloorio it2 CkC\Cl OAA A/IA JOHN HOWITZ If you are planning on getting the benefit of WALLIS efficiency for your Fall plowing, order at once.

OCTOBER 2,1919 t$M0 "The United States," the president said, "spent one million dollars an hour night and day for two years in its struggle to save civilization. All this, however, fades into insigni ficance when the deaths by battle are considered, declared the president. Russia gave 1, 700,000 men Germany 1,600,000 France 1,380,000 Great Britain 900, 000 Italy 364,000 the United States 50,300. In all, almost 7,500,000 men perished in the great struggle, or 1,500,000 more men than died in all of the wars of the previous 100 years. Should Remember Recent Horrors. "These are terrible facts, and we ought never to forget them. We went into this war to do a thing that was fundamental for the world and what I have come out on this journey for is to determine whether the country has forgotten or not. I have found out. The country has not forgotten and it will n,ever permit any who stands in the way of the fulfillment of our great pledges, ever to forget the sor rowful day he made the attempt." Arbitration and discussion, the pres ident pointed out, must replace force of arms in the settlement of world controversies. Constantly he dwells upon the fact that all the nations in the League agree to do one of two things, first to submit their differences to arbitration, in which case they agree to abide by the decision reiv dered, or, if unwilling to arbitrate, to have their case discussed by the Coun cil of the League, in which case six months is granted for discussion. Three months must elapse following the result of this last step in arbitra tion jpefgrg the nation concerned .'••• ".
