A stirring call to American women to join in this effort has been issued by the Washington office of the Wo men's International League for Peace and Freedom. The Hague conference will precede by a few days a gather ing in the same city of international trade unionists, with whom the wo men hope to ^o-operate in saving Eu rope from disaster. "It is a crucial moment," declares the statement issued from the Wash ington headquarters this week by Amy Woods. "The women of Europe ap peal to their sisters in the United States. The peace treaties have fail ed. They were based on greed and re venge. It is this basis that must be changed. We need a new peace." At this conference the wpmen will consider as a basis for the new peace the political, economic, military and psychological factors. American wo men who love peace and freedom are urged to attend the conference as fra ternal delegates, or to appoint their representatives, and to send a sub scription for the conference to the United States section of the W.

The in ternational executive committee of the The Colony Diary Being a Daily Report of Colony Life at Llano. (By "The Office Boy.) Wednesday, October 18. — The ""Lady Reporter" is up and around again, but the wear and tear of the strenuous life she has been leading has "gotten 'on her nerves" to such an ex tent that they have drafted me, the of fice boy ,to write the diary today, so J'll just have to take this old note book and make a sasha around the premises (close in) and see what I can see, fol lowing in the footsteps of the Lady Re porter. So I'll go over to the Colony .store first, and talk to Mrs. Gaddis or Mrs. Sanders for a while. There don't seem to be much doing here in the gos sip line, so I guess I'll move on over to theshoe shop and get Roede's ideas on things. Here he is coming out to go somewhere just as I wanted to interview him on important business. I'll let him go until later in the day. Maybe I'll learn more about this reporter business; by the time I get back to him and I would like to get Roede to talk a little Some people would think he don't know anything about anything except work, but I know enough about him to know that he could tell me a whole lot if he would. There isn't any other place on this side of the track to make a call except the railroad station, and there's nobody there except at train time, so I'll try to get back and see who gets of on the morning train. I have not done much yet, but this job is be ginning to stimulate me. In crossing ov er these railroad tracks to the big doin's on the west side things are beginning to look different than before. I have the job of looking the town over, but I can't see the town from here on ac count of that big wide work shed a hundred yards long. If I was old enough to vote for members of the Board of Directors I wouldn't vote for a comrade who can't see that he can't see the town fom the railroad station on account of the great big busy shed right in our front yard. I expect this re porter business stives a fellow big ideas and so maybe if I stay at it a few d?ys I can figure out some way of getting league is composed of the following additional women: Gabrielle Duchene, France; Katherine E. Marshal, Great Britain; Lida Gustava Heymann, Ger many; Emily G. Balch, United States; C.

A MUNICIPAL BAKERY TO THE RESCUE (By The Federated Press) Tacoma, Wash.—Mayor A. V. Faw cett believes he can cut the price of a pound of bread to 10 cents, instead of the 15c being charged. He pro poses a municipal bakery to smash the 'bread trust." TAFT'S SPECIAL JOB (By The Federated Press) San Diego.—General Organizer R. Muir, United Brotherhood of Carpen ters and Joiners, in a speech before the Trades and Labor council, • charged the Republican party with conspiracy against organized, labor both before and after the presidential election of 1920. He asserted that Taft was put on the supreme bench for the purpose of attacking the child labor law. FAVORITES OF HARDING (By The Federated Press) Washington. — By repealing the profits tax and turning down the bon us "$4,000,000,000 was donated to the profiteers," was the statement made by Capt. Charles O. Shaw in his talk on Profits Versus Soldiers. Re peal of the excess profits law, he said, cost the government $800,000,000 a year. He declared that this sum would cover soldier bonus four times over. it moved over across Copenhagen Boul evard behind the new garage. Still it would take a lot of time and trouble to move it ând Ole would be a kickin* all the time about the work being stopped in his department and all that sort of thing, so I guess I'll not have it moved right away. Anyhow the town will still be there whether the blamed thing is moved or not—and that's the main thing. Now I'll go over to the crate factory and then the printing plant and then the . laundry. I think that's the route the Lady Reporter usually takes. Still, I can come back there later on, so I'll take a stroll thru the big shed and see what's doing. Nobody will notice a fellow very much in there and I hav not learned very much yet about how to talk like a reporter. This new addition Lindsey has built along the northeast corner of the shed for squeezing the juice out of the cane looks nice and clean. It connects right up with the'po wer plant. Not much to it, but it looks nifty and effective. Pll have to try to use more big words as I go along— words like "effective." It sounds too common for a swell reporter to simply say that this nifty little plant does the work. Comrade Lindsey seems to be too busy to talk to me, so I'll just drift on thru the wood working departments of the big shed to the south end where comrade Schuster is working at the forge. Gee! no chance here for a re porter. Too much repair work laying around, and Schuster is too much like Roede—does a lot of work without us ing a lot of gab along with it. Funny thing about that, because Comrade Pickett says that Schuster is quite a lin guist, which I will explain to the boys and girls who read this, it means he reads and writes and talks several dif ferent languages Well I'm sure he isn't going to talk any of them to nie just now, so I'll keep headed south and go over to take a look at the new garage building. They haven't got the walls built up very far yet on acount of the brick supply running short three or four months ago, but the cold storage and Make of MAN the statue, the priceless piece of art: All that Greece has given, All that time has striven for ages to impart; Weld it in his sinews, mold it in his thought, Till the humblest scavenger is gloriously wrought. Shame upon the galleries, filled yith treasures fine, While the work of Heaven—MAN, who is divine, Shivers in the hallway, shuffles thru the street, Shambles down the alley, with weak and ragged feet. Make of MAN the statue, make of MAN the building. What avails the gilding of altar or of dome? What the gorgeous, tapestries blooming in the home? What avails the splendor where stately mansions stand, If men who make the mansions are homeless in the land? Shame upon the church spi es towering to the sky, While the drudging millions suffer, starve and die. —Angela Morgan ___ •. "• the hot storage both at the brick plant are full up now and Comrade Pickett is beginning to holier for bricklayers. 1 didn't know thtre was so much to think bout around this pi ace. Now I ha ve l^een sitting on this hot brick wall for .in hour and haven't written a iine—r just thinking. And 1 am thinking right, now that I'll have to be more care!£,i about what I write because when 1 was writing about the big shed I wasn't fig iring that these brick walls were soon going to settle a good part of that shed question. When the garage and black smith and metal departments get mov ed over here, Ole will have to find some place for his sawmill besides our front yard. We simply won't stand for it any longer. Another thing I'm thinking is that its about time for me to be getting back to the office. They might want me to do something. I don't think it is nec essary for a reporter to ask anybody what they know if he already knows it. himself so I'll just let it go this time and not ask anybody anything. I wish How ard Buck and Frank Newman were back from New Orleans I could get one bacK rrom new wricans i wuw of them to help me out on this reporter business. I don't like to ask Daddy Gleeser, because he's the editor and maybe he wouldn't have much time to fool 'with reporters. Anyhow, they shouldn't expect too much of a cub re porter, as they call a beginner, and so I'm going to hand this in just as it is. If they don't like it they can draft the 'printer's devil' until the lady reporter gets back. * * * • Thur^lay, October 19.—When the breakfast bell over the hotel rang this morning the first thing I thought of was that reporting I did yesterday for the 'lady reporter," and on my way down to the office I met her and asked if she had seen it and-what ihe thought about it, and she said "Go to it, kid." This relieved me, because I knew I wasn't fired off the job, so I goes in business like and asks what to do and Burton sends me out to bring in some wood he had split before he set the building on lire this morning. Then I sailed out on my day's work. With my trusty note-book, I headed straight past the railroad station* diagonally across the tracks to the crate factory. It still jars me a little to write those big words like 'diagonally" for the editor to approve and print. I makes a fellow feel like he is going some. Comrades Aaby, Dr. Ferree, Paton, and Schmedes at these benches nailing crate ends and sides. It's a shame that a few more men are not helping on this rush job. Wait 'till I see the general manager and I'll tell him in plain words that Ole can't have all the men in his saw mill. Ole is a big, strong fellow, but I'll just go over to the shed and give him a 'shot' about this crate "business myself. Let's see—what will I say to him? By jingo, that's him now out there talk ing to Cantrell. What's that? Must have another man at the brick plant this afternoon. Maybe he wilj have to take one away from the crate factory. MAKE MAN THE STATUE Guess I'd better duck out the other door and ,go over to the fertilizer plant for a change. The lady report er doesn't get over there very often. Come to think about it, Ole may know a little more about the division or la bor than I thought. Anyhow, we news paper reporters have to be careful, we don't show our ignorance. Now over here things are not so exciting. With nobody but Dad Coleman here, a per son has time to rest and reflect on se rious matters as long as he is busy with the purine pump. I could ask him how many loads of fertilizer there are in the north compost pile that Gault is haul ing trom and how much in the south pile, but here comes one of the wagons so 111 catch a ride over to Copenhagen (Continued on page 8) WEATHER MAN EXPECTANT OF RAINS HE SAYS Weatherman W.

F. Clark, organizer and leading light of the Eret Stock-Raising Colony * at Eret, State Line, Miss., report some splendid progress made this year. "Buying the necessary land has been our greatest drawback," says Comrade Clark, "but We are getting our land contracts paid out and our deeds are increasing. We now have deeds to a total of 214 acres, and haveseveral other contracts yet to meet. According to recent advises a move ment'is on foot to erect an orphan age at Eret, to be kept up by means of a huge dairy farm. Many acres of kudzu vines are planted, and a 1000 RAILROAD TRANSPORTATION Two letters recently from Colorado, one from Grand Junction, informs us the farmers there are offered 30c per bushel for their potatoes and 75c per hundred for apples. The other letter is from LaSalle, from a farmer whp planted 120 acres of potatoes. He dug 40 acres, but when the price dropped to 20c per hundred—12c per bushel —he refused to. dig more of them— could not afford to—-and 120 acres rotted in the ground. At the same time people are pay ing three cents per pound for them in this neck o'the woods. Wisdom increase with years; and so does folly.—Talmud.

LAND State Conservation Department Signs Agreement With Lumber Company Through the terms of a contract re cently signed by the Louisiana depart ment of Conservation and the Great Southern Lumber company of Boga lusa, La., 53,000 acres of cut-over lands will be reclaimed and reforested. The agreement is regarded as one of the most important movements in the state's policy to conserve its timber and complete the reforestation of cut-over lands. The work to be conducted through the terms of the contract is made possible by the approval and acceptance of the negotiations by the Washington Parish police jury in ac cordance with the reforestation and conservation act of 1922. The lumber company obligates it self to develop and raise timber on the 53,000 acres for a period of fif teen years, renewing the tree growth and making it possible to perpetuate the timber industry. The contract benefits the lumber industry in that it will provide future raw material for manufacturing; it benefits the state, because of a renew al of the resources that have brought so much prosperity, and it is pointed out that it benefits Washington parish because of the future promise of work to the people who reside there. It has been proved by the depart ment that wood pulp can be raised within 15 to 20 years and that timber suitable for saw mills can be grown in from 30 to 25 years. The forestry division of the depart ment of conservation is ready to give all the assistance in its power to the development of the Bogalusa tract un der the terms of the reforestation laws of the state. The new project is is be lieved is destined to become one of the biggest reforestation projects in the nation.
