Tuesday, has resigned his position
to take effect March 15. Mr. Fryer
has been engaged as federal prosecu

time he has earned an enviable repu

success, and. because of the great
number of convictions, he is con
sidered one of the most vicious prose
cutors in the southwest. During Mr.

"There is no escaping the moral
obligations which are expressed in
positive terms in this article on the
covenant. We won a moral victory
over Germany, far greater even than
the military victory won 00 the field
of battle, because the opinio ef tbe
world swung to our support and the
support of nations associated with
us in the great struggle.
"It did so because of our common
profession and promise that we meant
to establish "an organization of peace
which should make it certain that the
combined power of free nations would
check every Invasion of right and
serve to make peace and justice the
more secure by affording a definite
tribunal or opinion to waicn au must
submit and by which every Interna-',
tlonal readjustment that cannot be
amicably agreed upon by the peoples t
directly concerned shall be sanctioned. '
This promise and assurance were ;
written Into the preliminaries! of the
armistice and into the preliminaries
of the peace Itself and constitute one
of the most sacred obligations ever
assumed by any nation or bod of
nations. It is unthinkable that
America should set the example of
ignoring such a solemn moral engage
ment. "I feel that I could not look the
