Luck broke LeMars way, however, and their advantage over Hawarden was not as great as tho score would indicate. Huber, who played only the first quarter, put up his usual clnssy game and returned one ' punt, about. forty yards but there is room for considerable improvement in the team's work over what they did Saturday and a necessity for it if the game with Storm Lake next Saturday is to result in a LeMars victory. The lineup at the beginning of the game was the same as when Sioux City was played except that Koch took Mnthey's place. When Huber went out after the first quarter, Bogon went in at half and Dunn to end. Sexton was substituted for Koch. Hawarden scored on a long shoe string pass to Jacobs. Hawarden played snappy game.

Tho United States, the president said, was not merely trying to keep out of trouble, but was trying to preserve tho foundations upon which peace could be rebuilt. " Peace can be rebuilt," he added, ' only upon the ancient and accepted principles of International law; only upon those things which remind nations of their dutleB to each other and, deeper than, that, ot their duties to mankind and humanity. Amerloa has a great oause which Is not con fined to the American continent. It Is the cause of humanity itself.", Declaring his faith In the loyalty ot the great body of naturalised citizens of foreign birth, the president said he believed the Impression was too general that a very large number of these citizens were without a sufficient affection for the American Ideal. " But I am In a hurry to have a lineup," he explained, " and let the men who are thlnkiag^ flrst of other countries stand or* onjvslde and those who are for Amerloa first, last and all the time on the other side," " Every political action and every social' action in Amerloa at this time," said Mr. Wilson, '.' should have for Us object to challenge^ the spirit of Amer ioanism." » Marriage licenses - were'lwejjjl yea terday to.
