That United States Has Not Ratified
League of Nations.
Montreal, June 14. It in "pitiable"
that the United States has not ratified
the league of nations, Samuel Gom
pers, president of the American Fed
eration of Labor, declared1 to-day in an
address before the federation conven
tion. If the league covenant were
submitted to the. American . people
"without nay other entagling ques
tions, it would be overwhelmingly ac
cepted," he said.
"It is pitiable that the United States
has not raitfied the league of nations,"
said Mr. Gompers, 'but has forgotten
the effort of the nations of the world
to prevent another horrible conflict
inch as that which started six years
The labor draft of the, league cove

world and would help workers in the
most backward countries."

PERSIA'S APPEAL FIRST
Ta Be Taken Up at Session of League
of Nations Council.
Ixmdon, June 14. Persia's appeal for
protection against Russian bolshevik
aggression was expected to be one of
the first subjects discussed by the coun
cil of the league of nations at the open
ing of its executive session in St. James
palace late this afternoon. The sessions
will continue for two days, with the
probability that the bare outlines of
the conclusions reached will be an
nounced on Wednesday. In view of the
hands-off policy of the council with
regard to the Polish offensive, some
observers of the trend of affairs feel
that, the 1'ersian situation raises a
problem almost impossible for the coun
cil, as now constituted, to solve.
Washington, D. C, June 14. Senator
Warren G. Harding of Ohio, Republican
presidential nominee, was back at his
desk in his oflice at the capitol to-day.

retary, George C'hustian, and a small
group of senators, he arrived here a few
minutes after midnight and went di
rectly to his home on Wyoming avenue.
While a bov scout band of Oil City,
Pa., sounded a noisy welcome, the sen
ator and his party made their" way
through the cheering crowd at the sta
tion, pausing just long enough for two
flashlight photographs to be taken, an
incident that was repeate'd upon his ar
rival at his holme.
Senator Harding told the Associate
Press he would remain in Washington
about a week. He will not receive for
mal notification of his nomination until
he returns to his home at Marion, O.
Congratulations upon his nomination
continued to reach Senator Harding at
his office, what at home, Mrs. Harding
received numerous enthusiastic mes
sages from their personal friends.
Many of the neighbors had remained
up to witness the home-coming and
their greeting was like that given by
the crowd at the station.
The senator thanked those who had
gathered to welcome them, but made
nothing in .the nature of a statement.
Among those who accompanied t he Sen
ator from Chicago, were Senators
Lodge of Massachusetts, Republican
leader, and Kernald of Maine.

Besides this man and woman, de

Address Given To-day at Wellesley
Wellesley, Mass., June 14. Charles
K. Hughes, in an address at the Well
esley college commencement " exercises
to-day, cautioned his hearers that in
an appreciation of the difficulties
which have accompanied the period aft
er the war "we must avoid a distorted
view and we must nrtt fail to realize
that the great effort of the nation has
not changed in a few months. His
subject was "The Patriotism of
He contrasted the unified efforts of
war-time with "the absence of a com
pelling motive" and "the rush of com
petitive interests" that have followed.
'Tnless we have in peace time," he
said, "that dominant sentiment which
prompts a continuous and self-sacrificing
devotion to public ends, the sacri
fices of patriotism in war will have
been in vain. Our national ideals are
neither imperialistic nor radical. They
tranncend all ordinary national aims;
they are not. bound up in anything
short of establishing and maintaining
constitutional government as the sure
base of liberty.
"It is- a spurious patriotism that is
linked to the triumph of any creed or
class or liecome the vehicle of bigotry.

institutions that we are apt to think
that in this country they wiU take cure

this notion, We have too manvpvi

which ' abuses have arisen and hate
bean condoned should give us .more
anxiety than wild utterances which
easily defeat themselves. The tendency
to crave arbitrary power, to use pow
ereither economic or political power
ruthlessly, is more apparent with us
than devotion to the cause of liberty.
"It is in the orderly processes of
constitutional government that is, a
government of law with power so ad
justed as to secure protection from
capricious and arbitrary action in the
putting of principles and rules sane

dispute arose und action was brought
by Mr. Godfrey against Mr. Miller for
trespass and after'an exhaustive geared
of the records, showed that Miller had
record title to, and thereupon brought
liis suit against Mr. Godfrey for ires-pass.
i-aeh party employed a land survey
or, who plotted and prsenrcd blue
prints to the land in dispute and the
cases were bitterly- contested from the
atart to finish and the trial of tho
rases occupied six days and from the
evidence deduced the jury found that
Mr. Godfrey was the owner of the land
in ipiqstiom having derived his right of
ownership by adverse possession, which

parties to come ( close to a sawmill
owned by Mr. Miller as to deprive him
of the right to enter upon the land of
Mr. Godfrey for the purpose of making
necessary repairs on his mill. While. the
victor is iilwavs entitled to his spoils
and while there has for several years
lieen much unfriendly feeling between
the two families, liefore the parties
left the court house, negotiations were
entered into whereby Mr. Godfrey con
veyed to Mr. Miller "u sufficient ntifnW
of'feet of land in the rear of the mill
to enable him to make sucii repairs as
may become necessary on his mill in
t lie' future. H. K. Darling and M. M.
Wilson were attorneys for Mr. Godfrey
and J. (. Sherburne and David S. Con-
ant were the attorneys for Mr. Miller.
The next case for trial was State vs.

Innovation to Be Tried Out -t Glys-
How would you like to stop work in
the heat of the day and lie served with
a drink of rich, pure milk right off the
ice! Sounds good! And this is what
is to happen at the granite manufac
turing plant of E. C. Glysson Co. Inc.,
beginning to-day. Through the cour
tesy of ex -Mayor E. C. Glysson. ar
rangements have- been made with a
local milk dealer to deliver milk at the
shed in pint bottles where it will be
kept on ice. It ha been established
without a doubt that milk forms the
best -balanced food ration one can take
into the IkmIv. Treatment at a sanato
rium consists largely of milk because
it. is a builder of tissue and store up
resistance against disease.
Mr. Glvsson ha taken into insider-
ation the early hour at which granite
utters must rise and breakfast and
feels that during the forenoon in the
midst of strenuous toil a refreshing
drink of milk will not only satisfy
possible thirst, but also provide the
workmen with renewed ojiergy and
vigor to continue, for the few minutes
nei'essary fo consume the contents of a
bottle of i' i-ohl milk forms a rest

their oder at the ofti,-e and arrange
ments have been made so that they can
settle with their employer at inter
vals. The results from this latest move to
wards efficiency and health will be
watched keenly witi interest and
doubtless the idea wil." be inaugurated
throughout every cutting plant in the

with the observance of class Sunday
at the Universalist church, the bae

Rev. Frank O. Hokerk, pa.tor of the.
church. The entire senior class and a
portion of the junor class marched iu
and were, seated at the front of the
church at the opening ot tho service.
Members of the Glee club sang two an
thems as a part of iu morning serv
ice, and Minn Vera Benjamin, a mem
ber of the senior class in the commer
cial course, sang a vocal solo, "Lo,
This is Our God," by Huhtt. -Mr.
Hokerk took for his text, a por
tion of the 30th verse of the 107th
psalm. "So he briiiL'eth them to their
desired haven." He commenced by re
calling me nrst Daccaiaureate sermon
that he had ever preached, and tracing
for his audience, the career of one boy

"The greatest lesson of life for young
men and women is to come to the real
ization that they are the instruments
through which God will work if he. is
permitted to," he said. "Remember that
that which we are to-day is a record
of what our thoughts and impulses of
yesterday were; if we resisted yester
day's temptations we are safe to dny
and our battles of to-day determine toV
us to-morrow's career."
Mr. Hokerk chose the career of
James J. Townsend of Chicago, presi
dent of the Chicago stock exchange, ns
one worthy of emulating, and told how
Mr. Townsend-continued his trade of
shoeing horses. many years after be
went to Chicago to seek his fortun.1,

lie urged the graduating class be
fore him to consider themselves at tht
gateway of life. They should try tv
ascend to the spiritual heights, he said,
to get a true perspective of what lie
before them, and bring back with them
enough of the atmosphere to be a
source of spiritual strength to them
in time of trial.
"When the soul understands and
realizes that it is with God," he said,
"there is no limit to the aspirations
of that soul, nor to the endeavor by
which it will accomplish." In conclud-
