New York, Aug. 5 The luncheon
club idea as a means of cultivating
the spirit of brotherhood and co
operation among business and pro
fessional men is rapidly spreading
throughout the United States and
These clubs today in all sections of
North America are aiding In the
problems of reconstruction and are
promoting the principles of good
government and good citizenship and
are promising to become great busi
ness tmilding organizations.
Since the birth of the luncheon
club idea, in Chicago, Feb. 23, 1905,
when the first group of Rotarians
launched their organization, two
other international associations have
been formed the Uons and the Ki-
wanis which together with the Ro
tary have a total membership of
nearly 150,000 divided into 1740 dif
ferent clubs.
Taking as Its slogan, "Service, not
Self lie profits most who serves
best." the Rotary club has become
the largest .-of these luncheon clmba
having 909 clubs with a membership
of more than 70,000 of the represen
tative business and professianal men
or the country.
The Rotarians urge the Golden
Rule in business dealings and their
objects are set forth as follows:
"To promote the recognition 'of
the worthiness of all legitimate oc
cupations and to dignify each mem
ber's occupation as affording him an
opportunity to serve society.
To encourage high ethical stand
ards in business and professions.
To increase the efficiency of each
member by the development of im
proved ideas and business methods.
"To stimulate the desire Of each
member to be of service to his fel
low men and society in general.
"To promote the specializing of
acquaintance as an opportunity .for
service and an aid to success.
"To quicken the interest of each
member in the public welfare of his
community and to co-operate with
others in civic, social, commercial
and industrial development."
The international headquarters of
the Rotary Club is at Chicago and
its o facers are: Crawford C Mc

The second luncheon du-b associa
tion to be founded the International
Kiwanis Club was organized in De
troit. Jan. 7. 1916, by a group of
business men, who took as their
name, one of Indian . origin, which
stands for the observance of the
Oolden Rule in private, civic, social
and business life.
The Kiwanis also aim to promote
the spirit of fraternalism among
business and professional men and
one of its main objects is to "discuss
and study the science of business
building and to promote co-operation
between its members in the develop
ment of the various lines they represent."
"We Build" is the motto of the
Kiwanians, who are also advocating
that in the present day of reconstruc
tion "sane thinking must prevail
against avarioiousness and greed."
Among its distinguished members
the Kiwanians boast of President
Harding, a charter member of the
Marion, 0 clu:b; the Prince of
Wales, mem-ber of (Montreal club, and
President Obregon of Mexico, mem
ber of a Texas club.
President Harding in speaking of
the Kiwanis, said:
"If I can have with me in my work
and life, the spirit of Kiwanis, with
its friendly co-operation. I snail have
no fear of the morrow. Your motto,
We Build," is the greatest thing in
the world, but we must not only
buiid. but preserve. I iiave been
trying to organize a little Kiwanis
club of -my own. There are to be
only ten members, but I am practis
ing the very thought which you have
in your own organization. I am try
ing to pick an outstanding leader in
each line for the ten places in my
The Kiwanis now has 548 clubs
with a membership of more than
50,000. Its international offices are In
Chicago and its officers are: Harry

Howell, Oklahoma City, Okla., third
vice president; F. C. W. Parker, Chi
cago, secretary, and R. A. Mansfield,
New York City, chairman .district
The youngest of the business
luncheon clubs is the Lions, who
weer organized in Chicago, in June,
1917, at a meeting of various inde
pendent organizations, and since that
time has increased to 202 clubs with
a membership of more than 20,000.
fThe Lions cater to the younger
business and professional men and
stand for loyalty to country, com
munity and home, individual integrity
in thought, word and deed, one flag
and one language, new ideals, new
hopes, new ambitions in business and
profession, and service founded on
The Uons have taken as their
slogan, "Liberty, Intelligence, Our
Nation's Safety."

Ascunclon, Aug. 6 Paraguay will
become the mecca and home of
Mennonites from the United States
and other parts of the world, if a bill
sent to the Chamber of Deputies by
President Grondra becomes a law.
Delegates of the sect who arrived
here some time ago from the Unit
ed States have negotiated for the
purchase of about 5,000 square miles
of land in the great Paraguayan
"Chaco" for purposes, of colonization
conditional upon the Paraguayan
government granting privileges which
will permit them, to conduct the col
ony in conformity with the tenets f
their religion and , their system of
common administration of their prop
erties, called "W alsenhurst."
President Oondra has recommend
ed to the House that these conces
sions be made, which include the ex
emption of the Menonites from mili
tary service either in peace or in war,
the prohibition of the sale of alco
holic beverages in their territory, the
right to establish their own schools,
which would be conducted in -the Ger
man language, and in addition, the
privilege of importing free of duty
household articles and agricultural
implements for a period of ten
years. ,
The President says that the es
tablishment of the colony would be a
beginning of the solution of the prob
lem of populating the republic and
augmenting its productive capacity,
thAe being vast stretches of uninhab
ited territory of great productive val
ue. He accompanied his recom
mendations with a history of the
Mennonites, reciting their qualities of
industry, self-disciplinet and "collec
tive virtue."
The- delegates have notified the gov
ernment that upon the approval of the
measure more than 4,000 Mennonites

Dvinsk, Latvia, Aug. 5 Hundreds
of families in the war-devastated ter

the dug outs used by German and
Russian soldiers in the early days of
the war.
Little or no progress toward re
conduction has been made in the
scores of razed villages because of
the poverty of the people who, for a
long time after the war between
Russia and Germany ended, were un
