The Willis Bid for the Pro-German Vote Lendinc editorial in V anakonetu Daily News, ex-Confjressma Goeke's paper. Frank 13. Willis sure sn craininc anything by his oontro versy with Prof. William 11 Johnson of GranvilleUniversity Willis takes a German position by asserting that the United States should not have helped either side in the European war by sending munitions to prolong the conflict, despite the fact that such action was correct accord ing to international law, and in previous wars no nation ever objected to such a procedure until that self-same law militat ed against Germany then there was a roar. Germany sent niu nitions to Spain when that coun try was at war with America Germany sent munitions to Eng land when Great Britain warred against the Boers. Germany sold munitions to both Uussia and Japan in the Jap-Russ war. But when the United States sold munitions to the allies and would have sold to Germany if Germa ny could have delivered the sup Dlies to her own shores. Ger many kicked, as was expected of a nation such as she has proven herself to be. Great Casualty Lists May Soon Be Coming We must brace ourselves for great casualty lists. We have had 250,000 men engaged in the furious and victorious fighing of the last few days. They have killed and wounded the enemy by the thousands. Their own losses have been reported as light, but that means only rela tively light. They have indict ed tremendous damage on the enemy, and it is inevitable that they have suffered great damage themselves. The staggering lists will begin to come in as soon as they can be made up in France. They will be honor lists in the highest sense, but they will be fraught with infinite sadness for thousands of Amer ican homes. It will be a proud sadness, but it will be hard to bear. But it will be borne with resignation and grim determin ation to see the thing througl at whatever sacrifice, for such, praise God, is the spirit of the American people. Ohio State Journal O-u-c-h !

FAVORS A LEVY OF 18PER CENT Committee to Boost Tax on Corporations' Incomes. KITCHIN ANNOUNCES THE PLAN Lower Tax on Earnings Distributed, the Chairman Says, Would Have Tendency to Break Up Surpluses of Large Corporations and Force Money Out Where It Can Be Reached by Income Tax. Washington, July 21. An 18 per cent normal tax on the net income of corporations, with provision, how ev3r, that only 12 per cent shall be levied on the Income distributed to shareholders, has been tentatively agreed upon by the house ways and moans committee. Members of the committee believe that the lower rate on earnings dis tributed will have a tendency to break up large corporate surpluses and force the money out, where It can be reached by th esurtax on In dividual Incomes. The present nor mal income tax on corporations Is $ rer cent. Chairman Kltchln cf the commit tee made this statement: "The committee had under discus sion the Income tax on corporations, discussing rates. The following rates were suggested and discussed: "First. 20 per cent on the net in come of corporations, with a pro vision that on the amount distributed should be levied; second, 18 per cent ehoud be levied; second, 18 per cent on the net income of corporations, with a provision that on the amount distributed to shareholders only 12 per cent should be levied. "The following rates were also suggested: First, a rate of 15 per cent on the net. Income; and second, a flat rate of 12 per cent on the net Income. "While no definite decision was reached, it seemed that a majority of the committee favored the prop osition of the 18 per cent rate on net Income, with the reduction to 12 per cent on the amount distributed to shareholders." The proposed arrangement of the normal Income tax on corporation Is In line with treasury department views and Is a new plan In federal taxation. The proposal resulted from testi mony at committee hearings that many corporations keep a certain portion of their annual profits In the business, Instead of distributing the entire profits to stockholders, who would have to pay a surtax on It A.

A Jl 0 1 SMILE AS THEY GO INTO OATTLE Spirit of American Soldiers in France Described by Red Cross Worker. CHEERFUL AND CONFIDENT Each Believes If He Doesn't Get Into Action on Time Fight Will Be Lost What American Wom en Are Doing. South I5end, Ind. Knthryn Cnrllslo, daughter of Charles A. Carlisle of this city, lias been In Franco for a long time doing Red Cross work. She has written n most Interesting and thrilling letter to her pnrents, a letter that should stimulate Ited Cross work throughout the world and give to our soldiers In the trenches, on the fir ing lines and In camp, their mothers, sisters, sweethearts nnd friends at homo fresh hope nnd assurance that the American women are doing mag nificent work In their behalf. Here Is what Miss Knthryn says: I wish everyone ut home, particu larly the loved ones of our lighting men, could see "our boys" as they go Into bottle. It's the proudest moment of life nnd the grandest. Oh I how brave and splendid they are, with n smile on their lips. "Good-by." "We will see you soon ngnln." We feed from four to five thousand some days. Our canteen Is always crowded. Of course that compliment Is our greatest reward. We all try und want I to do for "our boys" tho very best, i They come and go at nil hours of the ' day nnd night. Our Ited Cross enn i teen Is never closed. All of "our boys" on this line of communication stop and ! rout nml hnvn tbnlr mt.nla nnfl refresh ments at this Ked Cross canteen. Want to Push on. We always know, among the very first, when a big drive is on, and then we never seem to sleep. Nobody wants to. "Our boys" don't even enre to stop long and rest; they want to push on. Everyone of these blessed men feel that If ho falls to get there on time nnd nt the very second when called Into nclion the fight will be lost, and It will. Uere Is a toast one of our brave offi cers left with us. It expresses the at titude of "our boys" to us perhaps bet ter than any word of mine: "To our women, who sent us forth with courage in their hearts nnd tears Id their eyes. "To our women at borne who are sac rificing all that w e may win. "To our women over here who give their own lives that we may live. "God bless them, nnd damn the man that does not respect them and tho coward that docs not protect them." "Our boys" mean every word ex pressed, nnd no woman was ever more thoughtfully considered and protected than we of the American Ked Cross Who serve "our boys" at the front. Over E,000 American trucks, all heavily laden, have passed our front door In this last big drive. Every man In charge came In for rest nnd refresh ment and a little chut with one of his native tongue, then with the smile of tho soldiers nnd a wave of the hand In farewell. "Good-by until we meet again." Alter every battle and at Intervals we see "our boys" coming back. ' Blood soaked, weary, but oh! how brave, "our boys," with bayonet and shell wounds will tell you quickly and firmly, "I am all O. K," "I can wait," "Look after Jim there," or "Look ufter this lad; he's gassed." The pity and the brutality of that horrible gas I Get Best of Care. Every American father and mother can rest In full assurance that If their boy comes In anywhere along the line the most thoughtful, considerate and efficient care Is given to him Immedi ately. "Our boys," of course, come first, but In behalf of humanity, nnd the love of Christ, we never say or do anything to a wounded enemy, and we see them by the hundreds, that any one could criticize. The American Red Cross is here for service, nnd it renders the best, day and night, to everyone that comes. While it's work, hard work, and work all the time, we get a lot of It, and the sun shines just as brightly j over here on the firing line as at home. Every day Is a new one and Its ups and downs fill up the time. A splendid general came In the oth er day and he was a sight His clothes were white with dust and his face black for want of a shave. The can teen was packed It was one of our busy days. The general wanted to shave and wash up before eating, and the only spot vacant and available was the small private dressing room used exclusively by we American women. We excluded all the women, put the general in our private dressing room, with hot and cold water, and on the outside of the door we" wrote a note and pinned It up, reading: "BEWARE Girls stay out The gen eral is shaving." When our guest finished nnd came out he saw the sign, and doubtless read it with amusement, because he wrote just below it, as follows : "Girls, your guest has finished. Many thanks to God's greatest gift to man an American womnn." And then he signed his name, and that is one of our choice souvenirs. Raudabaugh "INSURANCE V FIRE ! !

Crew of Norwegian Vessel Picked Up In Midocean In Pitiful Condition. An Atlantic Tort The Norwegian steamer Augvald, 2,008 . tons, bound from a French port for Baltimore, has fallen a victim to a German subma rine. A transatlantic liner brought the news of the sinking of the Augvald In mldocenn nnd also landed 11 members of the crew of 27 men. Three of the crew were drowned nnd the remaining 13 are unaccounted for. The rescued men were picked up by the liner after having drifted help lessly for 11 days, subsisting most of that time on seaweed nnd rainwater wrung from their clothing or caught In their caps. They were In an ex hausted condition when picked up, but by careful nursing on board the liner they had fairly recovered when they reached here. According to the crew the steamer was stopped by shell fire, the crew or dered Into two boats and the ship was eunk with bombs. Captain Egge of the Augvald left the ship with 12 men in his boat and It became separated from the other lifeboat containing 14 of the crew. For two days the latter boat drifted about nnd wns then upset in a storm. Three of the men were swept away and the others managed to right the boat and bale It out. They lost all their food and fresh water and even their oars were gone. Drifting helplessly, the men began to suffer for want of food and water, Seaweed was eagerly snatched up and chewed ond every device they could think of was resorted to to catch rain water. There was a succession of rain storms nnd the men were almost con tinually drenched. Day after day went by and finally the rescue ship cam over the horizon and the exhausted nnd starving men were soon safely or the deck of the liner and given everj comfort. FRENCH CITIES ARE GROWING Secondary Municipalities and Town! Are Gaining Rapidly by Im migration. Paris. The statistics for the popula tions of the secondary cities and town of France, completed before the exo dus from Paris began, show an extraor dinary increase owing chiefly to th immigration of foreign and colonial workmen employed in munition and other factories. Marseilles, with about 000,000 Inhnb itnnts when the war begnn, has now a population of more than 1,000,000 With the many refugees from th( towns about Paris, evacuated because of the German advance, and with som? of the population of Paris which flew from the big cannon, that figure max be said to be even higher. Lyons has Increased Its population from 530.00C to 7-10,000, without including additional thousands in the suburbs. Bordeaux's population has risen from 261,678 tc 325,000, and the suhurban parishes have grown from 88,520 to 120,855 Havre has increased from 136,159 tc 159,000 without Including the garrlsor. of 30,000 foreigners and 80,000 ref ugees, mostly Belgians.

PATmnTir r.RFrw maiccc HUNS DIDN'T GET IE GRAIN It Was Burned There by Rem narits of the Czechoslovak Retiring Army. TOUCH TEUTS IN STOMACHS Food Allowances Reduced, and Star vation In Some Places Is Appar entTake Revenge for Oppres sive Treatment of Bohemia. Washington. Amid the many easy triumphs which enabled the Teutons this year to slice grent sections from the map of Russia, like coupons from a bond, Germany and Austria both suf fered one frightful disappointment. And the pang was In the weakest part of their political anatomy the collec tive stomach of their peoples. The grain of which the two kaisers expected to plunder the Ukraine was not there at least there was so little of It that Germany hud to lower her bread ration, while Austria continued to starve a bit more rapidly. The sup plies hod been burned. These fires were lighted, with a kind of poetic Justice, by the remnants of the Czecho-Slovnk army deserters from the Austrian ranks and Invet ernte enemies of the llnpsburgs, who had been reconstituted Into Russian military units under the Kerensky regime and fought so splendidly for Russia before the whole nation col lapsed from the gnawing of the bol shevlkl. Fortunate for the Allies. Until March of this year this Czecho slovak army had been stationed In the Ukraine 50,000 men in line nnd 50,000 more in reserve. Then bolshevik rep resentntives dissolved their organiza tion and took away their arms, though about 20,000 refused to part with their weapons. They were given promises that they would be allowed to leave Russia for the United States, but, of course, no means of transportation were provided. And so they remained where they were. It was fortunate for the allies that they did. As soon as they realized that Germany's chief objective In Russia was the Ukrainian grain sup ply they began a systematic campaign of pillage and burning, In which they were assisted by the peasants them selves, aroused at the thought that the old landowners were to return un der German protection. The evidence that the Czecho-Slo-vaks were successful Is Incontestable. Count Czernin, Austro-Hungarlan prime minister until his little ex change of . pleasantries with M. Clemenceau, placed the responsibility for the bnre Ukrainian cupboard on the shoulders of the Czecho-Slovnks. German representatives In the Aus trian reichsrath repented the charge In greaKT details. A Magyar deputy In the Ilungarinn parliament recently de clared that the Czecho-SIovak army in Ukraine had burned or taken away everything of value. Had Their Revenge. Not only did they destroy what they could, but they fought bitterly to pre vent the Teutons taking what was left. Retiring nnd hampered by their lack of equipment, they stopped to meet the advancing Germans repeat edly in the field. Their last battle, one of those confused struggles which get little space In the cable reports, was fought near Bachmnc, halfway between Kleff and Kursk on the road to Moscow. After the fight, though the Czecho-SIovaks had been armed chiefly with axes, they themselves burled more than 300 Germans. Certainly In Ukraine the Czecho Slovaks have had their revenge for three centuries of suffocation and oppression in Bohemia. But through out the war they have launched shat tering blows against their Austrian and German enemies and the whole idea of Mittel Europa. Fire Destroys Barn. Eaton, O., July 17.
