So Far as Ger many Is Concerned ' i . 1 , Washington,- D. C..' -May 23. The Republican peace resolution- w- ve toed yesterday by President WiUon. , Such ' a method.- of nkiiuj peace with Germany, the president eaid, would 'plana an iiieffcea bio. stain upon the gallantry. and honor pi ti. United ;'Statcs." ' ' ..iThe president added the peace rrs yilution omRted. mention of many im portant objects fA- the vindication of what the United States , entered the "war. . : ' Without announcing hi intention regarding the treaty of Versaillies, the president declared that the treaty em 1)odiel the important things omitted jv the resolution and said that by .ejecting the treaty the United State jhad declared in eilet that it wished "to draw apart and puwuc objects and interests of our own." ' "Such a peace wfth Germany," the message continued, ''a peace in which .none of the essential interest which we had at heart when we entered the war Is safeguarded is, or ought to be Inconceivable, is inconsistent with the illMtft nt aha TTnitert Kfates with tile lights' and liberties of her citizen and with the very fundamental conditions of civiKsation." .' The president's message follows: f'To the House of Representatives: ' "I return herewith without my 6g haiture, House joint resolution 327, in tended to repeal the joint resolution of April ft, 1917, declaring a state of . war to exist between the United States and Oermanv and the joint resolution of May 7, i917, declaring a frtate of war to ctfist- between the United States and the Austro-Hungarian gov ernment, and to declare a state of peace: I have not fett at liberty to ;.ign this joint resolution because I cannot bring myself to become a party to a situation which would place an in effaceable stain upon the gallantry and honor of the United States. The res olution seeks to establish-peace with the German empire without exacting from the German government any ac tion by way of netting right the in finite wrongs which it did to the peo ples whom it attacked and whom we professed it our purpose to assist when we entered the war. Have we sacrificed the lives of more than 100, 000 Americans and ruined the live of thousands of others and brought upon thousands of American families an un happiness tthat can never, end for pur poses which we do not now care to state or take further steps to attain. The attainment of ttheso purposes is provided for in the treaty of Ver saillies by terms deemed adequate by the leading statesmen and experts of all the great peoples who were asso ciated in the war against Germany. Do we now not Care to join in the ef fort to eecure them! "We entered- the war reluctantly. Our people were profoundly disinclined to. take part in a European war and at lant did so only because they be came convinced that it could not in Kruth be regarded a only a European wsr, but must be regarded as a war in which civilization ltseir was involved end human rights of. every kind as against a belligerent government. Moreover, when we entered the war we set forth very definitely the pur pose for which we entered, partly be cause we did not w ish to be considered as merely taking part in a European contest. "This joint resolution which I re turn does not seek to accomplish any of these objects, but jn elttt makes a complete surrender of the rights of Ithe United States so far as the Ger man government is concerned. A treaty of peace was signed at Ver sailles on the 2&th of June last, which did seek to m-compli-h the object which we had declared to be in our minds, because all the cre.it govern ments and people which united against Germany had adopted our dec laration of piino-e as thir nun and had in solemn form embodied them in communications to the tJerman gov- ernment preliminarr to the armistice of Nov. 11.

FIRE PREVENTION WEEK UNDER WAY Widespread Support of the Special Drive is Being Given by Civic Bodies and Other Or ganirations. - Widespread support of the special drive now under way against man caused fires in the nation's public and private forests is indicated in reports received here hy the forest service of the United States department of agri culture, regarding "the observance of forest protection and fire-prevention week which opened May 23 in many western states- The campaign to re duce the damage by conflagrations, amounting annually to miUions of dol lars, ha received the -hearty endorse ment, of civic bodies, business organi sations, churchea, schools, and colleges. The response has been particularly en-, thusiastic in the nine states Califor nia, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Wyo ming, South Dakota, Utah, Oregon and Washington -whose governors officially designated the current seven days as "lire-preventive week." E. T. Meredith, secretary of agricul ture, on receipt of reports showing the earnest support given this new crusade to eliminate carelessness in handling fire in the forests, has writ ten each of the governors in the nine state a congratulatory letter, in the Course of which he declares: "Our de creasing timber and paper.supplies are beginning to make clear to all the need for concerted action. The states and the nation must join hands in the effort to hart forest destruction. Not onlv- as sources of permanent supplies o'f timber, but also as conservators of water supplies, our forests are essen tial to our industrial, economic, and social welfare." , . . Fire prevention week originated with the Natural Park association at Seattle, and has quickly spread from state to state, indicating that th pub lic now recognize the jieril involved in continued carelessness in the forests. "The great out-of-doors, ours to enjoy, not to destroy," is the keynote of the many slogans which, according to re ports, are Jieing conspicuously dis played by participants in this popular, movement. In giving its support of fire-prevention week, the forest service calls at teirtion to the appalling losses which When you buy anything, you ought to be willing to pay at least what it cost to produce it; plus a margin of profit to the maker, and to the merchant who has brought the merchandise to you; where you can see it, examine it, try it on, decide that it's what's you want. The sen ice rendered by the maker and the merchant are a part of what you pay for; you ought to pay for it , willingly. If that service were not rendered there wouldn't be any merchandise here for you to buy. Now, we aim to charge for our clothes merely "fair" prices; fair to both of us. We're going to make a fair profit, too. Our profit comes out of the money you pay us; yours comes out of the clothes you get. Hart Schaffner & Mark clothes give you the greatest profit; they cost enough to be good- clothes; all-wool fabrics; perfectly tailored, smartly styled. They're the best clothes for you; that's why we sell them.
