By th* ftiiofiital Pre**  COLI’MBI\S. Ohio, Sept 4 President Wilson, opening: his country-1 wide speaking tour in the interest of the peace treaty and the league of nations, declares iii his first address here today that his purpose was '“to go out aud report to my fellow citizens."  ' The only people to whom I owe any report," said the president, "are you and the other citizens of the United States.”  The president said it ''seemed increasingly necessary" that he should make such a report, because he had read many speeches about the treaty and was unable to gather from ani of them what the treaty contained.  Speaking to a crowd which jammed Memorial Hall, the seating capacity of which was estimated at four thousand, the president’s declarations were frequently interrupted by cheers. The meeting was presided over by Dr. W. O. Thompson, president of the Ohio State University, and the president was introduced by former governor James E. Campbell as "the first citizen of the big, round world."  Mr. Wilson began by saying that ' he "chafed under the confinement at Washington.” and was glad to get out to make his representations to the people. ‘In the first place,” he said, "the treaty undertakes to punish Germany, but there is no thought to overwhelm or crush any one people.’  Restraint had been exercised, he said. and there was provision for making the reparations no greater than Germany could afford to pay. The president said he had been astonished at statements made about the treaty, and was confident that many of them were made by men who had not read it or who had failed to comprehend its meaning.  Not to establish the league of nations, the president said, "would be unfaithful to those who have died.”  "Italy, the president continued, "had presented to the peace conference a contrary proposal in her request for Fiurne. Although there were only a few settlements there Italy wanted the settlement for neutral purposes." If there were a league of nations, he asserted, it would not need that foothold.  The president appealed to his au-dipnce to exercise their influence for an early acceptance of the treaty.  1  Don’t let any one pull it down,” he said, "and don’t let them misrepresent u. When this treaty is accepted the men in khaki will never have to cross the seas again.”  “The Treaty also contains,” the, president said, “a magna charta of labjr.” which would set up an international labor organization. Thi-organizat ion. he said. would hold its first meeting in Washington in® October whether the treaty is ratified by that time or not.  The president appealed to his hearers if they would not read the treaty themselves, to a* least accept the account of its contents as given by those *who made it.  Mr. Wilson said he had heard a threat deal about the selfishness of other nations, but that in reality there was unanimity at Versailles.  "We were under Instructions, and we did not dare to come home with- i out fulfilling those instructions. If I could not have brought back the kind of treaty I did bring back, Ii would never have come hack." said the president.  United States Lags Far Behind Eng land-France in Road Building  WI.ii. to titans Nu . it a’s appropriations for highways may seem formidable, to the ardent good roads agitato it is but a start toward a much needed, lone delayed development, says the B. F Goodrich ,Rubber company.  in comparison with populations, both England and France have made and are making more progress than has America. Congress has appropriated $275,000,000 for expenditure up to and including 1921 tor impalement of the 2.500,04*0 miles of roads in th. United States. France plans to spend $152,000,000 on her national system ot highways, which comprises 06,000 miles. England has appropriated $50,000,000 for expenditure on her 150,90$ miles.  England has 2JO citizens to ever! mile of road; there are IO* Frenchmen to ever>* mile and in America there are but 42 persons to (he mile. On the basis of thes« figures, the highway system of the United States will not equal the ratio ot French mileage to area until w« have 5.000,000 miles of highway, while 7.500.000 miles will be necessary ti* meet the English ratio.  IHE peace man  TAKES SAME ATTITUDE TOWARD TREATY WITH HUNGARY AS WAS TAKEN BY IMH MAMA.  SOCIALISTS URE  By th«* AsMX'iatod SN *•(-»  PARIS, Sept. 4. Serbia seems likely to adopt the same attitude as has Roumania toward the Austrian peace tratty, says the newspaper 1‘epit Parisien today. According to information from a most authorative sod ice this newspaper says that the Serbian government feeds that it cannot accept the treaty unless there is modification of certain clauses concerning the protection of racial minorities w r hich Serbians consider is an infringement upon her sovereignty.

Not only lira. Stokes, but Win. Bross Lloyd who signed the appeal bonds which released a number of I. VV. W.s from the leaven-worth penitentiary recently, is barred from fellowship.  The communist party inc libers, radical socialists, who left the national socialist convention now in session to organize along more pronounced lines, also decided that doctors. lawyers and editors can have no part in the "coming revolution.” The communist labor party, also an offshoot from the national convention, also adopted a program. It plans propaganda for a new .republic based on that of Russia, with the shop and factory as the all important unit.

ADVERTISING BUILT THE LIBERTY BANK  Trial of Kaiser at Monte Carlo Hailed as Fete  AIRPLANE, WHEN SHOT WAS BN THIS SIDE  By New*’ "ptc.al    >c*  PARIS. A suggestion that the trial of the kaiser be held at Monte Carlo is finding marked favor among the delegate,- to the peace conference, in view of the growing oppo&i-tion to the plan for the holding of the trial in London.  Mention of Monte Carlo has been hailed as a brilliant idea and while the prince of Monoca has not yet been consulted, it is believed that if the question were put to him by the powers with assurance that they w'ould protect Monte Carlo against any reaction in the future, his consent would be forthcoming.  The world’s greatest gaming resort suffered greatly for lack of patronage during the war and undoubtedly would welcome the advertising to be derived from selection as the place of the trial of the former Ger-Mian war lord, provided it were safeguarded against adverse after-effects.  It was tile possibility of such after-effects that the Belgians opposed the "election of Brussels, altho the Belgian capital seemed to be tile place designated by poetic justice Paris does not want the trial nor does Washington, and it is doubtful if Switzerland. Holland or any of the'* other neutral nations would consider it.  By St*-’ >pt*c»fci Service  OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 4. Adver-’ising waa a most important factor n establishing the Liberty National Bank, which was a year old yesterday, according to the statement made by George L. Browning, vicepresident, in a letter to stockholders yesterday. Mr. Browning announced the net earnings of the year’s business at 20 per cent. He said newspaper advertising had given the public an acquaintance with the bank which could not have been secured] touch w ithin several I  By New*’ Special Service  LONDON. Physicians and surgeons are all wrong, and they’ve been barking up the wrong tree. George Bernard Shaw says so. He ridicules people who pay big fees "to be told their intestines are too long,” declares vivisectionists who regard the human organism as a mere mechanical thing or chemists who think of it as a chemical thing are idiots. Shaw thinks surgeons and physicians should study human anatomy from the biological aspect of life.  ‘Here am I. a mass of carbon and sodium.” Shaw told a meeting organized to abolish vivisection. “There is any amount of these chemicals lying about. Now, what has assembled them into this thing you see before you called Bernard Shaw? What is it that has taken them and holds them together in this strange and fantastic shape, making a curious noise, and getting them into this bone box, in which there is an amazing brain?  "Imagine a man dealing with that miracle and imagining he can treat it as a mere mechanical or chemical thing. The thing is inconceivable, i’he man who does that ought to be ruled out. not merely of the medical profession, but of the sweepier of crossings."  The Fall Is Here  Three months of spring and three of summer have passed since Nature put on her 1919 habit of green; and now we enter upon the first month of fall.  fhe seasons here merge so smoothly and so gently one into another that the line? of demarkation between them is scarcely discernible, and ordinarily we are “knee deep” in the new one before realizing that the old has gone!  So it would be in this instance, perhaps, but for the calendar; although there is in the air that unmistakable something that instinctively tells man, the birds and the squirrels that summer is about to bid us adieu and that fall is waiting to take possession of the land to prepare ‘‘all that dwell therein” for the more exacting winter that is on the way.  To the north, east and west of us, the coming of fall calls a halt on growth. It finds the field crops harvested, for the most part; the landscape “brown and sear;” and it heralds the ripening of nuts and the later fruits, and the hardening of corn. Toward its end comes snow*.  Hut in Oklahoma—“the land of the fair God”—it by no means savors of death—it simply forewarns growing things of the approach of frost, thus spurring Nature on to greater speed in completing her plans for the year’s production, and it hastens floral life to maturity.  After a little while from now the wooded hills and valleys will put on their gypsy raiment, and in about another month the whole landscape will be bedecked in all its kaleidoscopic autumn finery. A few weeks more, and then—winter.  This year we enjoyed a delightful spring; the summer was really above the average, as summers go—moderate in temperature and with just the right measure of rainfall—and the autumn opens with every indication in its favor. The traditional signs of nature bespeak for it fair skies; balmy air, blending into healthful crispness and enough precipitation to insure ample development of the season’s crops and flowers.  There is ^medicine in an Oklahoma fall. There is something about it that breeds hope, good cheer and contentment.  It is a season such as is calculated to make optimists of us all!  WHEN HE VISITS OKLAHOMA 4 TTY BAGH COUNTY WILK HAVE SPECIAL SEATS RESERVED.  By News’ Social Strviet  OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 4.—Every county in Oklahoma will have representative" at the fair grounds auditorium when President Wilson speaks Friday evening, Sept. 26, according to an arrangement decided upon at a meeting of the general committee with Governor Robertson yesterday.  A block of seats on the stage, in the wings at the sides of the stage and the first ten rows in the body of the auditorium were set aside to be divided according to population, among the counties of Oklahoma. Tickets for these allotted seats will be apportioned by a committee composed of Ben Lafayette, Mayor Walton and Vernon Whiting of Pawhuska.  The state fair association will open the grounds for free admission at 6 o’clock Friday evening. At the same hour the doors of the auditorium w*ill be opened and the “first come, first served" policy will prevail until the big hall is filled to capacity. After a personal inspection of the auditorium yesterday, Governor Robertson said he believed 10,000 persons could hear the president if all available standing room is filled.  Probably you think a livestock pavilion is not a very sw*eet place in. which to pack 10,000 people to hear an address by the president of the United States.  Auditorium to be IKsinfected.  Ralph Hemphill, secretary of the state fair association, assured Governor Robertson and the general committee on arrangements yesterday that a rose garden would have nothing on the big hall Friday evening, Sept. 26. although judging of cattle in the arena will not be completed until la*e Thursday.

Oui net earnings above all expenses and losses have been approximately 20 per cent on our paid in capital. We have loaned from four to five million dollars during the year while the total losses on such loans have ionly been $85 or virtually nothing.  "The national bank examiner, who was with us a few* days ago, certified that we had no bad loans or doubtful assets and no paper more than a few days past due.  "This unprecedented growth has been due to sever/*] factors, chief among them being the close cooperation and perfect harmony ara-, ong ihe stockholders of the bank; our newspaper advertising, which in twelve months has belter acquainted the public with our organization thau could have been done by personal touch within several years; the enthusiastic and intelligent support of our directors, officers and J *w pl oyes, everyone of whom has been constantly on the alert to bring i new* business to the bank and find some means of serving a patron."  Chairman It. E. Echols of the Corporation Commission will not arrive in Ada in time to hold the hearing on the complaint on the local ice company at IO o'clock tomorrow morning as has been announced previously, but will be here in the afternoon.

War and the withdrawal of radical insurgent elements have reduced the membership I of the national socialist party in this country to 42,217, according to a report read today at the convention of Hie organization. Before the war the socialist party claimed a membership of 117,000.  The delegates applauded for several minutes when a report was J read that Emma Goldman had been I released from prison two weeks ago. The new communist party of America adopted a platform after wrangling over the phraseology nearly all day. It declares the party in full harmony with the revolutionary parties of all countries.  John Reed of New* York, presented the report of the committee on program and labor, which was said to be the most radical declaration of principles ever issued by a politi-j cal party in the history of the ■ country. The lengthy document is said to have been largely copied from the program of the soviet republic of Russia.  By th** A*Mociirtai Pf«»*  WASHINGTON. Sept. 4.

Joe Watson went before Judge Bolen yesterday in district court and ask**d to be habeas corpused out of durance vile. Joe had received a pretty stiff fine in police court for unlawful possession of several gallons of ( hoc and had made his appeal to the county court In the meantime his attorney, E. 8.

The court overruled the plea, however, and the case will be tried in county court.
