THRI8 Poles Want To Buy Our Guns LONDON (By Mail). American shells and bullets, fired by American guns and "American stomaches" may be used to fight Bolsheviks menac ing Poland, according to General Chevalier John De Remer, who is in London to buy munitions and food for the Polish -army. The possessors of the "American stomachs" will be Polish soldiers, fed with food pur chased from America. De Remer is in London as an au thorized agent for the Polish govern ment to spend between thirty and forty million dollars for guns, shells and bullets and to buy all the foo in sight De Remer told the United Press he has already started negotiations with the American government with a view to purchasing light artillery and rifles. He expects to make huge food purchases of Americans. "Poland is a great admirer of America. It will never forget its generosity in helping to feed the Po lish population. The work done by the Americans was wonderful. Just now what Poland wants is food and guns for its army to fight the Bol sheviks. It also wants to build up the nucleus of a Polish artillery force. "It is for this reason we wish to buy American light guns if possible. I understand America is agreeable to selling some of them to us rather than to go to the trouble and expense of shipping them back to America. We may also buy many of their ri fles. "We are not interested in buying heavy guns, owing to the fact that raods in Poland are very bad. "But the purchase of guns for which I a m prepared to spend be tween thirty and forty million dol lars, is not the only thing we want. Poland needs food, machinery and many other things. Much of this we expect to buy in America." Kickless Drinks At Old Frices COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 5. Now comes the kickless wine card. Old topers who have flirted with John Barleycorn for years will rub thei reyes in wonderment when they lamp the "camouflage booze" ligts prepared by downtown grills. "Exhilirating and Non-Alcoholic Beverages," reeds the new drink list prepared for the arid days that be gin in Ohio May 27th. The new card reads just like the old ones. There are "sparkling wines," "high balls and rickeys," "fizzes and flips" and "beers." You can also get an "Evening Smile," guaranteed to have no "Morning After." But if you feel groggy the next morning, take a "Noil Bracer." Then again, if you feel real devilish along towards noon you can lasso a "Horse Neck." This will cost you 40 cents in the coin of the realm, and, the list says, it is composed of ginger ale and lemon peel. The only thing on the list remin iscent of the days past, is "Spark ling Grape Champagne,, at two dol lars a throw. Despite the "camouflage" make-up of the new kickless drinks, the old familiar prices will stare the hopeful tippler in the face. "You can't tell," one old tippler re marked optimistically when the new list was exhibited. "There might be a kick in the stuff. It says exhilirat ing."

S.Wine Makers ToStoARtiajrJ J MEXICO CITY, (By Mail.) As a result of the prohibition amend ment to the national constitution of the United States, there promises to be-something in the nature of a wholesale emigration of vine growers and wine makers from California to Mexico. Information has been received from that state that there are in the neighborhood of one hundred thou-" sand persons, engaged in that indus try who are looking toward Mexico as affording the only possible relief from the ruin with which they are threatened by the prohibition laws. They are the owners of hundreds of thousands of acres of wine grapes. which will become of little value with the enforcement of the amendment, since the varieties of fruit adapted to wine making are not suitable for 6ther purposes, except to a limited extent. There are extensive areas, espec ially in the northern portion of Mex ico which possesses all the requisites of soil and climatic conditions for the growth of grapes and the making of wine to fully as great an extent and of fully as high a character as Cali fornia. This has been demonstrated notably in Coahuila, as well as in some of the other States, and the national government has for some time been encouraging the cultiva tion of the grape and importing mil lions of cuttings of vines adapted to this country. The Mexican Uonsul-General in San Francisco, Ramon P. De Negri, is taking an active interest in the pro posed emigration of California wine growers to Mexico, and has notified his government that at least" eighty thousand persons, largely of foreign ancestry, are now preparing to leave their adopted State and intend com ing to Mexico. President Carranza has signified his lively interest in the movement and plans are now being prepared by the Department of Agriculture for welcoming these immigrants and aid ing them in re-establishing their in dustry. All of the northern States Sonora, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Coahui la, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, etc. possess extensive areas that are adapted to the cultivation of wine grapes.

Organ ized labor will stage a monster dem on stration against prohibition and egislation affecting the manufacture of 2 per cent beer in front of the Capitol on Flag Day June 14.

"West Prus sian troops have been organized into an army group. Gen. Otto von Bel ow has been appointed commander. So reads a brief and ominous no tice in the nationalistic press. The East Mark is cleared for action. A Parliamentary "Action Committee" for East and West Prussia and the Bromberg district has begun work in Danzig. There is no bluff in the fighting mood of East Mark, under the popu lar slogan of "a preventive war of liberation from the Polish yoke." Eastern territorial peace terms, which give to Poland parts of Prus sia without a plebiscite, have accom plished the seemingly impossible the immediate resurrection of mili tant patriotism in Prussia, as yet chiefly confined to the provinces but likely to spread westward. High-pressure, patriotic home pro paganda in the east, is fanning a new flame of nationalism. East Ger mans will know how to help them selves," says the nationalistic Tacg- liphe Rundshau nrovokingly. "Wo can assure the Pales, as well as the Entente, that a general Polish at tack on the east front will encounter resistance that cannot be broken German East Mark is armed to de fend its native soil with force. If the Poles an dthe Entente should attempt to press into those territories, the world would witness a drama of prob ably unexpected f rightfulness." Freiheit makes illuminating reva lations regarding preparations for a Polish-German war. It prints an at leged confidential letter daied May 26, purporting to be signed by Ma jor Gen. Dietrich, commander of the 9th Infantry Brigade, addressed to leading people of the district and which says the "highest eadership" wishes to gain a clear picture of how resumption of the war would be view ed. For this purpose the circular re quests an ansver to the following questionnaire: "Is the population of the district overwhelmingly for resumption or not; if in favor, is the population prepared only for defense or resump tion only in its narrow, native terri tory, or is it prepared for more ex tended fighting, even outside of Ger many, as in Poland and Russia; would a call to the colors have a pros pect of success; could the authori ties count on a great influx of vol unteers; is the population prepared and determined to remain firm un der the personal, economic and mil itary pressure which enemy occupa tion of the country entails; and, final ly, in the event of a resumption of fighting, are internal disorders to be feared, and to what extent?"

F. Goodrich Rubber Company herewith declares a more-mileage adjustment on Goodrich Tires 6,000 miles for SAFETY TREADS, and 8,000 miles for SILVERTOWN CORDS. Fix these new Goodrich Adjustment figures firmly in your mind 6,000 miles for SAFETY TREADS 8,000 miles for SILVERTOWNS instead of the 3,500 and 5,000 miles respectively heretofore in force. This new adjustment stands back of all Good rich Tires, including Tires already purchased in the hands of user or dealer. Goodrich Tires in actual usage are today un folding such matchless mileage, regularly in excess of adjustment bas'is, that Goodrich knows it has the strongest, most durable tires the rubber industry has produced. The Goodrich adjustment mileage is increased because Goodrich knows the mileage in its tires, and it wants to give every motorist a share in their economy. Go to a Goodrich Dealer, and buy a Goodrich Tire, sure that with fair and square usage a Safety Tread will render you at least 6,000 miles; and a Silvertown Cord at least 8,000.
