NUMBER 223ADA, OKLAHOMA, MONDAY, DECEMBER I, 1919 THREE CENTS THE COPY MINI III nu SENDS NOTE THAT MEXICO CANNOT FAIL TO UNDERSTAND —DEMANDS J FN Kl NS RELEASE IM M RDI ATELY By th* A*«oci*w<d Presa WASHINGTON*. Dec i.__Renew-tng Its request for (he immediate release of Consular A pent Wm. O. Jenkins, imprisoned at Puebla, the latest American note to Mexico, made public here today, arraigned the Mexican government in severe terms and characterized it as a studied attempt to ensnare the American consular agent in the intricacies of legal proceedings. No ultimatum was served and no indication was given out of what the government's course would be if Jenkins is not released immediately. “The Mexican government”, says the American note, “cannot expect the United States to accept such a bare. unsupported statement of a valid excuse.” Jenkins, weak and exhausted in a hospital, the note says, has been harrassed by the Mexican authorities while evidence against him was obtained through intimidation of witnesses. The American note begins by saying the United States declines to be drawn into a discussion of irrelevant or unimportant and says the request for the consular agent’s release is founded on right and justice. The United States, the note says. is constrained to the opinian that the Carranza arguments that the case is being investigated and that Jenkins has not taken the opportunity to avail himself of bail are “mere excuses.” This government, the note says, does not admit that it is necessary to keep Jenkins in jail while his case is beinr investigated and that this government “fails to discern" that the “intricacies of the Mexican penal code” have been applied with impartial justice to Jenkins. The United Slates is not to be driven by subtile arguments, says the note “into a defense of its request for the release qf Mr. Jenkins. It is for Mexico to show reasons for his detention, not for the United States to show cause for his liberation.” Then the note says. i "Stript of extraneous matter with * which the Mexican note of Nov. 26 endeavors to clothe it, the naked of Jenkins stand* forth. The note then reviews the history of the case and takes up the argument. Jenkins was imprisoned for “rendering false judicial testimony” in connection with the abduction of which he was the victim, says the note. “In whose interest is the charge of false swearing brought against Jenkins,” asks Che note, “the Mexican government is persecuting the victim instead of the perpetrators of the crime.” The note says the only conclusion this government can draw is that Mexico has made a studied effort to ensnare Jenkins in legal intricacies to divert the attention of the American and Mexican people from the fact that the second largest city in Mexico is overrun by bandits and • that the Mexican authorities have been negligent. PONTOTOC' COUNTY CHURCHES MOUE THAN RAISE THEIR QUOTAS IN THE DRIVE FOR $75,000,000. tfYT DR INK ANO SE MERRY FOR TOMORROW I. v. 4    (    ♦.*    .VV.    ,    *    .J I 1 The First and Second Baptist Churches of Ada went over the top in grand style in their drive for their quotas of the Seventy-five Million dollar campaign now under way in all the Baptist churches of the South. The First Baptist Church at the morning services Sunday raised more than $37,000, while the entire quota was only $27,000. The Second Baptist Church went over its quota by approximately one thousand dollars. The First Baptist Church, not content with a mere surplus of $10,000. worked last afternoon and at the evening services also. This morning the total subscriptions had reached a total of more than $46,000 and the drive is to continue all the week. Uvv. C. C. Morris, pastor of the First Baptist Church, is delighted J over the wonderful success of the drive When the other members of■ the church are seen, he believes that! Ada will have the record of doing more    than any    other of    i4e    large churches in the * hole Southland. His church will probably double its quota. Reports to Rev. Morris from other churches in this county indicate that every    one will raise their    quota.- by good    margins.    In fact,    all    those heard    from have    already raised    more than their quotas in each instance.

With this money, the denomination is expected to take on new life, and that it will be instrumental in bringing the world back to normal, allaying class feeling that is now arising, and helping each person to realise !» reality that he is his brother's keeper.

RICE PLEADS GUILTY IN NEWBERRY CARE TODAY ■ GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. !.■ released on bond of $1,00$. By the Associated Press NEW YORK, Nov. 30.—Ninety-six hundred Presbyterian churches in the United States were advised today that the teachings of Jesus Christ would solve the whole industrial problem. These churches were urged by Dr. John McDowell, director of the social service division of the -Presbyterian New Era movement to apply the teachings of Jesus understandingly to the solution of industrial questions. Dr. McDowell declared that the 15 th verse of the 18 th chapter of Matthew constituted “the law of brotherhood, conciliation and arbitration “and he urged its application to present day industrial moves. The Bible reference reads: “Moreover,* if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and hisn alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.” Dr. McDowell urged the church members and pastors to get in touch with outstanding groups of their communities, such as employers and employes, boards of education and teachers, political, recreational, press health, official social and disturbing groups, learn their points of view and side with them when right. “I believe,” h^ said, “that eventually there will be industrial courts, similar to city, state and federal courts, in which labor disputes can be solved. These courts would be graded as are the present local courts with the right of appeal.” Dr. McDowell called attention to the following Social Creed adopted by the Presbyterian General Assembly in 1910: “Acknowledgement of the obligations of wealth; application of Christian principles to the conduct of industrial organizations; more equitable distribution of wealth; abatement of poverty; abolition of child labor; regulation of the conditions of the industrial occupation of women; release of every worker from work one day in seven; conciliation in industrial disputes and development of a Christian spirt in the attitude of society toward offenders against the law."

By the Associated Press WASHINGTON, Nov. 30—War experience plainly shows the necessity for fundamental reorganization of the army and of the war department itself, Secretary Baker declared .today in his annual report. He recommended that the emergency organization, reduced to peace-time size, be made permanent, and approved the general staff bill for a regular establishment “adequate in size to be the nucleus of any great military mobilization the country may he called upon to make’’ and backed up by a system of universal training. “In such a policy,” Mr. Baker said, “the accent is upon the citizen and not the soldier; the officers becoming a permanent corps of experts and the men a body temporarily devoting a portion of their time to military training in order that they may enter civil life with a sense of national service ami with superior equipment for suedes.” “It is difficult to believe,” he said, denying any danger of militarism, “that an army could be formed of Americans, educated our common schools, raised in the free and democratic atmosphere of our institutions, which would still be hostile to those institutions and liberties. The World War has shown quite clearly that arirges reflect tie spirit of the people from whom th3y come rather than create a spirit of their own, so that the size of the army is not so important from the point of view now under consideration as the kind of an army.” The selective service law was accepted as a fair means of assigning men to military service in time of war, Mr. Baker said, but compulsory service in time of peace would be “a poor substitute for the tfolunte*? principle properly applied.” Raising a standing army by financial inducement is too costly to contemple e, he added, leaving only the method of making enlistment in the army an educational opportunity” to furnish the troops. The recommendation for an increased standing army, he declared. should not be taken to indicate a disinclination toward the prospect of disarmament. “Those who know the spirit of the American army,” the secretary said, will not ascribe it to any provocative temper. There is glory left in the career and sacrifice of the soldier, but the mild and spectacular contests of an earlier age have Decon«*» a stern and cruel business, and while ere is cheerful willingness to encounter the privations and make the sacrifices which war demands, the men of the American army' are abreast with enlightened men everywhere in the hope that more humane and rational processes of adjustment will supersede the waste and loss of armed conflict. They are, however, of the belief that so long as It ■ is necessary for us to maintain an army at all we are not justified In , having an inefficient army, and by jtneir recommendations are to ba j viewed as setting them apart as men. who, by reason of their experience, are qualified to speak upon the provision which should be made for the common good and the common protection should be the test of war become unavoidable.” The plan recommended. Mr. Baker said, looks to the establishment of systems of schools teaching the formal branches of educat’on and add- to them the skilled trades, “so hat at the end of a ter^i of enlistment, the young man entering his nr^h.rarjin g°back to cwi it ie with the physical set-up which the open, athletic life of the army gives, and with the education and raining which will make him more valuable in civil pursuits than he could otherwise have been.” Social and recreational opportunities also he said’80 th*t be graduate from the army “will ba<* with him the social virtues which result from education of mind and hand acquired in'an environment mad^ stimulating by ‘b® pr*?™ce of high purpose and °f service, and generoua ae-kl® fellows.” The military policy recommended tayowL Wa* depart?nent» therefore, npw oil army* cr«*ted with a ?i!La P 4 having wide civic nse-?f such size and organ!-aation as to be an adequate reliance in case of need,” the report said. if.*aw the operations in would be dealt with in the jWecial report being prepared by Gaperal Pershing.
