PREPAREDNESS IS PRIME CAUSE OF WAR, SAYS BRYAN Richmond, Va.. Dec 10. Getting readv for war is the best way to bring on war, was the view advanced by sec retary of state Bryan in addressing tho annual convention of the Federal Coun cil of Churches of Christ in America Wednesday. He said preparedness may help a nation if it gets into a war, but will not keep It out. " "More than that, preparedness with almost absolute certainty will lead you into war because you cannot PrePar5 for war unless you either are afraid of somebody or hate somebody. The people will not bear the burden of tax ation. You cannot make them bend their backs to the load unless you can make them believe it is necessary-.. To make them belleye it is necessary you have got to have somebdy to whom you can point and say: 'If you don t get ready they will catch 'you unpre pared."

Two "anti ring" tickets for the city election are being1 discussed on the streets and the "ring" ticket for the spring election is also receiving its share of the discussion. One of the "anti-ring" tickets Tvhleh have been mentioned is headed by Tom Lea for mayor and "W. "W. Evans and J. P. O'Connor for councilmen. The other ticket mentioned on the streets Thursday included Dr. B. M. Worsham for mayor, and S. J. Freudenthal, V. B. Andreas, J. P. O'Connor and J. P. Jolly. Both tickets have stronp; backing with in the County and City iDemocratic club, it is said, and are considered by the opposition to the city administra tion as having elements of considerable strength. Tgm Lea has been identified with the "anti ring" movement since it was first started several years ago, and was elected county chairman on the "anti ring" ticket against the opposition of the entire "ring" organization. He has said repeatedly that he would not take the nomination if it was offered to him, because of business reasons, but his friends are said to be urging his selec tion because of his popularity and his work atrainst the "ring." Ur. Worsham Also .Mentioned , Dr. Worsham has been identified with ' state politics for many-years, although I ne naa taken no active part in local po litical affairs. He is the medical di rector Tor the Two Republics Life In surance company and was mentioned as a candidate for governor at one time. Of the candidates for councilmen who have been suggester, S. X Freudenthal has been Identified with the "anti ring" movement for several years; J. P. O'Connor has been independent In poli tics: TV. TV. Evans is well known in fraternal and business circles and was foreman of the last grand Jury. V. B. Andreas is a young business man and J. P. Joi. is a building contractor. Tlte name of Charles Davis as a can didate for mayor on the "anti ring" ticket has been dropped, local politi cians My, as he has notified his friends that he will decline to run. He was considered as a strong candidate. "With his withdrawal, Tom Lea is being con sidered as the most likely candidate to oppose mayor Kelly at the polls in the spring. He has not, yet announced his intention of accepting or declining the nomination if it is offered him, Kelly to Run, There seems to be little doubt that mayor Kelly will head the "ring" ticket Other candidates have been considered, but there seems to be little doubt that the mayor will be the choice of the organization. As his running mate on the ticket there seems to be little doubt that Ben Levy will be one of the candi dates for councilman. Park -Pitman, retired county clerk, is also being con sidered as another candidate, and Clai borne Adams, J. F. Primm and Frank Murchison have been mentioned, al though it is said that Murchison and Primm have declined to accept FUNSTON SUCCEEDS BLISS ; BELL SUCCEEDS FUNSTON Texas City. Tex., Dec. 10.
