CENTRALIA, Wash., Nov. 12.—-j Arrival of companies of state troops here today assured this little city quiet after nearly twelve hours of disorder during which five men lost their lives. Three of the number being members of the American Legion, were shot down yeesterday afternoon during the armistice day parade when it passed in front of the I. W. W. headquarters. Another man, also a member of the Legion,! suffered fatal wounds in attempting to apprehend one of those, said to have done the firing, while the fifth sn&n, Britt Smith, secretary of the local bunch of Industrial Workers, was hanged by a mob.
Guardsmen were stationed by local members of the American Legion when the troops arrived while nearly one hundred others from nearby towns were in reserve.
The crash came as the head of the parade swung into the street before the industrial headquarters. A burst of fire came ftom the windows and roofs of nearby buildings and from a hotel across the street.
From Seattle came information that it is believed to have been largely the result of an article on labor, and that the attack on the parade was the result of a campaign inaugurated by Centralia’s * business men to rid the city of radicals.
Governor Hart is on his way from Cheney in the eastern part of the state, to the capital, having started immediately on receipt of word through the Associated Press that disorder had occurred there.
The American Legion will not rid the town of radicals, which have been increasing in numbers for some time, members said. The I. W. W.’s

Yesterday, one year later, we shouted for joy, sang the praises of martyrs who died that the world might be free and made it more than certain that the lith day of November will hereafter appear upon the calendar as a permanent holiday throughout the civilised world.

The boys here not only intend to meet the farmers from the land of Bill Murray, but they expect to demonstrate that Farmers are not the only players of the pigskin sport.
Coach Rayburn is smiling more blandly the last few days, since his lads showed better form at Coalgate last week. Heretofore they had not been showing their best form in interscholastic struggles, and Rayburn was at a loss as to what was wrong. It was probably the timidity of youth, for the boys have not hit their stride and expect to capture the rest of the games, making only one defeat for the season.
The Aggies are strong this season, it is reported. They talked over Coalgate in regal manner, but Ada did the same thing. In fact, there is nothing from the dope to indicate that the visitors will have much on the home gridotere. With the advantage of playing at home, the local boys ought to be able to defeat the future farmers and cattlemen from the banks of Pennington.

WASHINGTON, Nov. ll — The first anniversary of the signing of the armistice and the ending of hostilities in the world war was observed generally today throughout the United States. Governor? of nearly a dozen states had proclaimed the day a legal holiday, while many mayors through proclamations and public statements called attention to the significance of the day.
* President Wilson in a statement addressed to all Americans declared “the reflections of Armistice day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died. in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory both because of the thing from which it has fr^eed us, and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.” •
Gives Message to Veterans. General Pershing and Secretaries Baker, Daniels and Lansing also pointed out in statements to tho American people the deep and sol- ' emn meaning of the day, while General March, chief of staff, in a message to “the veterans” asserted: “You have now turned your atten tion to civil problems, in which the lessons you learned in drar may be aptly applied. Patriotism, self-control and unity of action make for the future welfare of the country as well as for success in battle.”
Maynard to Participate. Washington observed the day with exercises centering about the planting of two memorial trees in Lafayette Square opposite the White House. Members of the cabinet and Generals Pershing and March had arranged to take part in the ceremonies while Rear Admiral Grayson had given assurances that should President Wilson’s condition permit the chief executive would be allowed to view the exercises from a window in the White House. The program called for pronouncement of an invocation by Ifieut. Belvin W. Maynard, the “Flying Parson” of the air service, from a plane in«the air through the use of a voice amplifier. 1
Flags of the United States and France, which flew over the American naval head quarters at Brest during the war,' floated over* the Force Public School here where Quentin Roosevelt was a student while his father was president. In memory of the young aviator who gave his life for his country in France, pupils of the school planned to plant a memorial tree with exercises at which was to be read a telegram sent by Lieutenant Colone, Theodore Roosevelt expressing the. appreciation of the Roosevelt family for the school’s action.
