SOME STAYTON KIDS
GETTING IN BAD
Marshal Smith tells us that
there are a number of boys in
town that have been in the hab-
1 it of cutting up capers that are
I not in keeping with the teach
ings of their parents, -and says
that he knows the names of the
boys that took the caps off the
fire hydrants in front of Sloper’s
drug store and also at the cor
ner near J, H. Thoma’s house.
The marshal says if the bovs
will bring the caps back all will
be forgiven, but if they are not
returned immediately he will
take them in tow, and they will
have to suffer the consequences.

Whereas, there is a movement
on foot to establish what is called
a League of Nations, to establish
and perpetuate perpetual peace
and whereas we do realize the
horrors and hardships of war.
Therefore, be it resolved by
West Stayton Local No. 139 of
the Farm er’s Union, that we do
believe in and support said move
ment to establish world peace,
and we rejoice as Americans in
the fact this plan was read at
the peace conference and so to
the world by our president of
this United States, whose power
has done so much to produce
so much harmony and love thru-
out the universe.
Be it further resolved, that
we express our support of sush
League, and that such plan be
ratified according to the consti
tution of the United States, and
th at our nation be one of the
great powers to create such

Burges Ford, who has seen
some exciting service with the
Y. M. C. A. at St. Mihiel and
the Argonne forrest, is iu the
city for a day or so with his fam
ily, visiting at the home of his
father, Rev. T. B. Ford. He
was with the 90th division con
sisting mostly of Texas and Ok
lahoma men and was in close
touch with all this division’s
werk along the fighting front.
Although in the Y. M. C. A.
service during the big advance
at St. Mihiel, he was under fire
for days at a time. His most
narrow escape was when his
trousers were pierced by a ma
chine gun bullet and with the
exception of himself and another
man, every man in two squads
of 12 each was either wounded
As to the capturing of any of

th at as soon as a nest of Ger

and the American boys given
the location, the German guns
were soon out of business. On
