NUMBER ll. CUT THE PEACE “STRINGS’ Senate, 46 to 33, Adopts Americanization Reservation to Covenant. Washington, Nov. 13.—Disregarding President Wilson’s appeals and threats, the senate today, in furtherance of the majority program to Americanize the Peace Treaty, adopted, by a vote of 4f> to 33. a reservation disentangle the United States from any obligation to mix in foreign quarrels under Article X of the League of Nations covenant. The reservation on which the President and his supporters went down to defeat is the same as that which Mr. Wilson asserted would “cut the heart out of the league” and be tantamount to a rejection of the covenant, such a rejection as would “break the heart of the world.” The large majority commanded by this reservation, around which most of the fighting has raged, means the ratification of the treaty 'with the Americanization reservations, if the treaty be ratified at all. President Wilson has threatened to bring about the rejection of the treaty, if modified to his dissatisfaction, and the adoption of the reservation to Article X squarely challenges him to carry out his threat or surrender to the will of his partner in the treaty making power. The crisis in the disposition of the treaty now is at hand, for the remaining reservations will be adopted with dispatch unless filibustering tactics are adopted by the administration forces. When all the reservations are adopted it. will be for the President to say whether the treaty, so modified, shall he ratified or rejected. Dorp is what the re??? cation t Article X does. Nullifies all obligation of the United States to preserve the territorial integrity and political independence of other countries in the League of Nations. Refuses to bind the United States to interfere in controversies arising between the other nations under Articles X. Declines to permit tile use of American troops for any purpose under any article in the treaty except by express authorization of the congress of the United States. Every Republican In the senate sun-ported the reservation. Five Democrats joined them. All of the thirty-three votes against the reservation were Democratic.—Kansas City Star. Scandia Man Hangs Self Arthur Hawes, 20 years old, who hung himself at the home of his sister, Mrs. A. W. Larson in Kansas City. was a former Scandia young man. He was found bv the Larsons hanging by the neck from a water pipe in the basement of the Larson home with the following note addressed to Mrs. Larson pinned to a coat sleeve: “Dear Rhoda—I have made up my mind to end my life, so don’t be surprised at what I have done. Do anything you want with me, but don’t put my name in the papers for my sake. This life I have been leading would drive anyone to ruin.” The fact that he was out of employment and had searched in vain for 3 weeks for work, is the only explanation that Hawes’ surviving relatives could give.

Body conducted the funeral services Wednesday, November 12, at 2 p. rn METHODIST GLEANING One of the largest congregations of the year greeted the pastor Sunday morning. One of the encouraging sights was the large number of boys and girls who remained for church. Forty boys and girls united with the church on Sunday morning and two babies were baptized. This means a wonderful opportunity for tho future, and it also spells responsibility. If we can save and care for the boys and girls we need have no fear for tho future of the church and the future of our beloved America.

The reading by Bernice Shaw and the quartet of girls was | very much appreciated by all. » The ladies of the Wheel deserve a good deal of praise for the splendid ’ way in which, under the management of Mrs. Jemison, the crowd was cared ' for on Armistice day. Every member j of the Wheel tried to make it a pleas-j ant occasion for the soldier boys. Not-1 withstanding the fact that perhaps 500 meals were served there was such an abundance of provision that it was | thot bort to servo a dinner the next day. The Church was beautifully decorated, a very comfortable rest j room provided a “talking machine” ; made music and all who came seemed 1 delighted with the entertainment I given. Adv. and Newspaper Rates Up The newspapers of the country are up against a print paper shortage— I with prices soaring out of sight. A number of big publishers have held meetings looking forward to a solution of the problem. They have decided to cut down the number of printed pages, curtail the amount of advertising, and raise the advertising rates, as well as the subscription rates. The country newspaper publisher is square up against the same prob-! lorn, and it will mean the suspension j of many papers throughout the coun-| try if increased rates are not made to meet the situation.

Dr. Kalin of the Entertainment Committee had a lot of responsibility, as did all of the committee chairmen, in putting over their part of the program. The ladies of Belleville representing the various church and social groups, deserve a lot of credit for the success of the celebration. The ladies quartet of Republic and the boys hand of Narka were features of the celebration which were widely commented upon. The Simmons Tire Service Station and the Belleville Motor Company have the thanks of the Committee in charge for voluntarily turning over their large, roomy buildings for public dances in the evening. There is a strong sentiment for making the Home Coming celebration an annual event. The first annual celebration of the signing of the Armistice was a marked success, and furnishes the foundation for a big annual fall event. 4- Hrs. Du Mars and \Vyatte Move Drs.
