AMERICANISM THE ISSUE. Whether or not those -who believe in this country first, last and all the time and those who hold first allegi- .11.. n An termine the future policy of the na .. tion will be decided at the polls next November. The democratic party has boldly and ... courageously accepted the insolent I nallenge oi tne nypnenaies. There is now no middle ground. No matter how emphatically Mr. Hughes may declare his "American- Ism" the fact remains that he 1b the candidate of the "hyphenates" and if Ihe should be elected his victory could .not be interpreted otherwise than as ' a. nrnnhiiiff blow to Kenuine American- .km. ' It would go to the world as a tri- cunpb of the German-American alii oasce. Hereafter American foreign policy would draw its Inspiration from the Jtaiser and not from the genuine Amer icanism of the native born of this country. - It Is well that the issue has been squarely made. - It is well that we are now and for ; all time to ascertain and determine Jnet low- much patriotism the people of this country possess. They can decide whether they will stand by the real Americanism of Woodrow Wilson or voice approval of ,the hyphenated Americanism of Hughes, the choice of every German American intermeddler in all the coun try. It is a small thing what political .party dominates the politics of this .oountry, out it is of tremendous im portance that the ruling power of this ziatlon 'should have no sympathy for and own no allegiance to any foreign -power. WORKING THE PIKES. Having purchased some seventy miles of public highways the county will be face to he face with the prob lem of their maintenance and up keep. This is adding nearly ten per cent to the jptal mileage, of the coun "ty'fl roads quite that much when other pikee acquired and to be bought are added. This will make approximately 3,000 miles of public highways to be kept up with as ever increasing traffic. The county now has approximately 920,000 of road funds with which to .maintain its highways. That is roughly $20 per mile. The wonder is MANY RECRMSJRE JOINING Every Preparation Will Be Made To Make the Camp Sanitary Before Order to Bring Soldiers to Nashville la Made. Special to The Herald. NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 20. In view of the President's procla mation, Governor Rye said this morning that he did not think it would be necessary for him to is sue another proclamation calling out the Tennessee troops, but that all that would be necessary would be the adjutant-general's orders. These orders will not be given be fore the latter part of this week or. possibly the first of next In structions have already been sent ' for the troops to hold themselves in read i nest.

But there is need, for more money. Especially is this true on the main county site highways. All the pikes -recently acquired lead to Columbia. The traffic upon them is large and as the use of automobiles becomes more carrier will be employed in the post office as general utility .man. The selection of carrier must be made by Postmaster Hamond, who expects to announce his choice within a few days.

Auto mata generally recognize this fact Only recently the State highway en gineer of New York declared that the state should abandon the building of 3naeadam roads and in place of them jmonld construct concrete highways. He stated that it cost $12,000 per tulle to construct the macadam roads and $1,000 per mile to maintain them and they were worn out in ten years. The Kind of Which he Has Ever Heard of Has Received Much Attention. "One of the best suggestions I have heard for the improvement of the so cial life of Maury County and the de velopment of a stronger community spirit is the proposed County and Town House," said W. C. Headrick, extension secretary of the Southern Sociological Congress, who is in Co lumbia preparatory to the conference commencing next Friday. "This idea is original with a citizen of Columbia, Hon. John W. Fry. Mr. Fry's plan, as I understand it is to have a combined club and office build ing", conveniently located in Columbia, where community, county and . civic gatherings of various kinds may be held and where the spirit of democ racy and the get-together spirit will prevail. City and county offices with which the people as a whole are most intimately associated, could be placed here. For instance, the superinten dent of schools, health officer, county farm demonstrator, probation officers' and Juvenile court judge's office, and, when Columbia shall have established them, the Associated Charities, Public Employment Bureau, free clinic, etc. "Social settlement houses and com munity centers have been established in many cities throughout the country embodying some of the features of Col. Fry's plan, but nowhere as far as I know, has such an admirable scheme as ,Col. Fry's been put into effect The public library feature espe cially will be of gret benefit to this community. At the coming confer ence of the Sociological Congress,! hope that the plan will receive due attention and steps taken- which will result in the adoption of the plan in Columbia.
