C. Argali, acting mayor of Spokane, and a member of the selective draft board. In a letter to the editor of The Spokesman-Review the city commission er and member of the draft board shows up the •Indian who coached the Pullman football team, in a most unenviable light. His letter follows: "To the Editor of The Spokesman Review : Your editorial December 3, with the following heading 'No Jobs for Alien Slackers,' strikes me just as for cibly as it does the Idaho Lumber com pany and yourself. There surely should be no place for them, not only in the United States, but also, in our friend and ally's country. Canada.

Then you say : 'It was even worse for those who had declared their intentions to become citizens and then renounced their rights forever rather than enter the ♦% : Î ♦ Santa Claus : : : t. : j : Headquarters : : : X : ♦% PRESENTS OF REAL VALUE AND THA CARRY THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT : ♦ ♦> : : The finest record musical instruments made, an ornament and a source of pleasure in any home.

"But, is not still worse when a man who was born in the United States will classify himself as not being a citizen or an alien? You can hardly conceive of a man doing such a thing, but it is a fact, nevertheless, and he is now enjoy ing a lucrative position with the govern ment. Refers to Football Coach. "I refer to Lonestar Dietz, renowned football coach, now employed at Mare island, and by the government, if -you please, to coach a team of full blooded American boys, all of whom are true blue, otherwise they would not have en listed. "Dietz classified himself as being born in Dakota. On his registration card he said he was an Indian, not a citizen. In his questionnaires he says he is white, Indian. In answering the question, 'Do -you claim exemption from service in the army of the United States on the ground of not being a citizen?' he answers 'Yes.' Says He Denies Own Land. This man received his allotment, was educated at Carlisle and everything he has he owes to the United States govern ment, but still he denies the land that gave him birth. Now what are we going to do with a man of that type? The alien or deserter is not in it with him. He either puts the dollars before our coun try (for he has none), or he did not have the nerve to take the same chance that thousands of our other brave boys did. "I want to draw a comparison: Our little patriot Seaton Mitchell, who was and- who was , died in an at not yet 19 years of age laid to rest November 28 tempt to serve the country that was dear to him. 1 refer to this hoy because he came to me and asked me what depart ment he could get into to get overseas tlie quickest. Quite some difference the attitude of this young toy and this man —one trying to serve his country by get ting into the army the other trying to evade military service by classifying him self as not a citizen. Matt Without Country. "If he is not a citizen of this country in which he was horn then he must be a man without a country, for he surely could not be a citizen of any other coun try. not having left the shores of the United States. "1 can understand how there is quite a difference standing on the sidelines coaching a bunch of our hoys or even participating in the game himself, than going against a shower of shrapnel, bul lets and gas, for it takes real nerve to face the real thing. The board, however, classified him in 1A. and as far as the board was concerned he would have been a soldier as soon as we had reached his number, had the war continued. "You have asked the question 'VVhat going to do with thje alien? Wh't is to be done with the declarant who relinquishes his rights as an American citizen?' and now I ask wdiat aie we going to do with this type of man who to me is a worse slacker than either of the others. • are we "Yours truly.

LATAH COUNTY TO MAKE NEW RECORD EVERY ADULT IN COUNTY EX PECTED TO JOIN RED CROSS DURING THIS DRIVE For the Red Cross Christmas roll call no definite quotas have been fixed in any community. The reason given by Chair man Simpson is logical. He states that the Red Cross is now so widely known and so strongly approved that the goal of the present membership drive is noth ing short of "universal membership." In other words, the census figures will be Latah county's quota, just as they will be for the whole nation. "There can be no doubt," stated Mr. Simpson, that the week of December 16-23 will see this really wonderful task accomplished, because there is every where a perfect spirit of co-operation. It is the hope of the Red Cross war council that there will be 88,000,000 American citizens enrolled as members of the Am erican Red Cross by Christmas eve. "I think it is most important at this time that the public should nndêrstand that the Red Cross Christmas roll call is not an effort to raise money, and no one in Moscow' or in Latah county will be asked for contributions. The annual membership fees amount to only a dollar a person, and that is all that is wanted at this time.

CHRISTMAS CHEER FOR CAMP LEWIS MEN PEOPLE OF NORTHWEST CALLED UPON TO PROVIDE FOR 30,000 SOLDIERS The people of the Northwest are asked to co-operate in giving to every soldier at Camp Lewis a Christmas present, and the announcement is made that there will be 30,000 meir there for Christmas. The following appeal has been sept out from the camp : Citizens! Attention. Will You Help Provide a Merry Christmas for the Camp Lewis Soldiers? There will be nearly thirty thousand soldiers in Camp Lewis over Christmas day. The excitement of war is over and the men will be certainly thinking of home at this season. Last year the Y. M. C. A, provided entertainment for all. We want every man in camp to feel that he is being remembered this year. With this end in view, Christmas programs will be held in every Y. M. C. A. unit. We desire to present each man, whether he is in barracks, quarantine or hospital, with a pound candy box con taining cake, candy, nuts, etc. packages are suggested so that all may be treated alike, and to give it a per sonal touch, the donors are requested to enclose their cards in the packages. The Y. M. C. A. is asking each of you personally to see some soldier in Camp, Lewis is given one of these boxes at Christmas. Let the churches, Sunday schools, fraternal organizations, ladies' clubs, literary societies, etc,, take up with the proposition as a real Christmas privi lege. Notify the army Y. M. C. A. at Camp Lewis as to the number of boxes you will send it for distribution. Small This is a big work. The boys from "Over There" are already returning to camp. Some of them have left a leg or an arm somewhere in France. Help us to serve them with Christmas cheer. Yours for a Merry Christmas for' the soldiers, A. M. GUILLER. Camp General Secretary. -BS Firemen Give City a Flag. The firemen of Moscow have pre sented the city with a fine silk flag which will fly from the tower of the firebell in state occasions and during good weather. The flag is a fine one and with a new rope, purchased yesterday, will be raised the first good day. The firemen, who have done such splendid work, giving Moscow the lowest record for fires of any town its size in the Northwest during the past two years, deserve credit for this patriotic action. They have not only protected our homes and our business from destruction by fire, but have set a fine example in patriotic duty and civic pride. Knights of Pythias Elect.

Also the truthful ness of the inability of man to resist and conquor the power of death. The wise man said : There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death ; and there is no discharge in that war ; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.—Ecc. 8:8. Surely if men and women ever battled against the powers of death, it has been the last three months. Physicians have done their utmost ; remedies of all kinds have been used extensively, and yet death has taken the enormous toll of .300,000 to 350,000 of our number in the United States in the last 30 days. Death is a monster in our land. He visits all classes in all walks of life—the THE MOST DANGEROUS DISEASE No organs of the human body are so important to health and long life as the kidneys. When they slow up and commence to lag in their duties, look out! Danger is in sight. Find out what the trouble is—with out delay. Whenever you feel ner vous, weak, dizzy, suffer from sleep lessness, or have pains in the back or difficulty in passing urine—wake up at once. Your kidneys need help. These are signs to warn you that your kidneys are not performing their functions properly. They are only half doing their work and are allow ing impurities to accumulate and be converted into uric acid and other poisons, which are causing you dis tress and will destroy you unless they DRAMATIC RECITAL —BY— W.

When he lays his cold, icy hand on you, your pleadings and your cries will all be fruitless; you will have to yield. He will crowd you to the wall and blow his icy breath in your face and you are gone. The enormous toll that has been taken from our number who was just in the prime of life, and so far as health and surrounding circumstances was concerned, they had bright pros pects for a long life before them, is only proof of the fact that man has no lease upon life, and that life is uncertain and death is sure. Hence the necessity of being prepared when death comes. We may have nice homes ; we may hold very honorable positions we may have large bank accounts; but when death takes hold of our form, our possessions are of no value to us. We cannot bribe death. All the wealth we possess would not buy one moment of time. Jesus said: "A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things that he possesseth. When death calls for we will go." Therefore, God has, thru his great love to us. warned us of death us and the future that awaits the wicked, and has provided a way whereby may escape (not death), but the horrors of death. We are told by the Great Teacher that now is the accepted time. Behold, now is the day of salvation 1—2 Cor. 6 ;2. There is no place beyond this life to get right with God. Solomon said: "In the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be." So it is with man. Just as death takes him out of this world, just so the judgment will find him. His moral condition will not be changed ; the life you arc living in this world is fixing and sealing your future destiny. Man in his natural state is sinful, and must repent or perish, but that all come to repent ence. Also Jesus said : "Come unto Me and I will give you rest." God has left the human family utterly without ex cuse. If death takes you away in your sin, you are lost and you arc to blame for it. God has made us creatures of choice and told us that the wicked shall be turned into hell with all the nations that forget God.—Psa. 9:17. But the*' : righteous into life eternal.—Matt. 25 ;46. Death is sure; the judgment is sure. All will be brought to judgment and there receive a reward according to the life lived in this world. What will your re ward be? we T. W. COOPER, Moscow.
