3 Baker declared it inconceivable that
the peace conference would make the
Z. world war an insupportable tragedy by
z. failing to provide for a league of na-
lions or some other arrangement to
- prevent such disasters in the future.
i "We hero in America who have

; and mothers who have (riven their
tons, surely have a right to some high
t assurances of future peace as a con-
- lolatlon for their sacrifices. Or.e can
not close his eyes and think of the
Z peace conference at Versailles with
" out feeling; that there hover over it
: the spirits of millions of dead men
- demanding that their sacrifices be not
in vain. that the statesmen of the
world now secure to mankind the
blessings which they died to obtain.
; Mr. Baker said he had no intention
; of speaking for the President, whose
- statements had been explicit and in
; whose hands the case of America now
" was placed.
Tribute Paid President,
"He stands with head erect, said the
Secretary, "in the ancient places of the
old world, where other kinds of treaties
used to be made, and represents a great
and free people. He is the advocate
- not of a form but of a principle.
"It may be that there are voices in
- this country which quiver with hesita

cil chamber are the voices of the de

- spokesman of the democracy of the

Mr. Baker made only one reference
touching subjects of criticisms of the
War Department recently voiced in the
Senate. "Although there is much talk
of the United States having to rely
upon Great Britain and France to sup
ply its armies with heavy artillery,"
he said, "nevertheless, American Indus
try did. in fact, supply to Great Brit
ain and France practically an equiva

them. American industry was able to
meet the demands made upon it. and
on the day the armistice was signed

equipped with American-made rifles

The peace conference, Mr. Baker said,
undoubtedly faced intricate and diffi-
cult geographical and racial questions.
It would be conceivably possible, he
i added, "to make treaties ending this
I war in the old way, quieting Its pres
' em discords and dealing with each na
;' tional claim as though it were Indi
. vidual and of no community interest.1
Uut we had a world organized in
the old way in 1314." he continued
; "In the lat months of that year the
' heady currents of international mis
understanding swirlrd together, and

that of the he!plesness of the great

world aa their statesmen watched the

That There Is No Censorship on

Jolccy Williams, the well known
American actreaa. who was recently
playing at the Imperial Theater Id SL
Louis. Mo, made the following state
ment about gray hair and how to dark
en It:
"Anyone can prepare a simple mix
ture at home, at very little cost, that
will darken gray streaked or faded
hair, and make It soft and glossy. To
a half pint of water add 1 ounce of bay
rum. a small box of Barbo Compound,
and ounce of glycerine. These In
gredients can be bought at any drug
atore at very little cost, or any drug
gist can put it up for you. Apply to
the hair twice a week until the desired
hade Is obtained. This will make a
gray-haired person look SO years
younger. This Is not a dye. It doe not
color the most delicate scalp. Is not
sticky or greasy and docs not rub off.

first report, the Marion CoujCty grand
Jury, which has been investigating the
prison, filed the following supplement
ary report with Judge Kelly here to
day: ' "Tour grand jury would respectfully
report that since filing our previous
report, several matters therein have
been called to our attention by inter
ested parties through statements in the
public press and otherwise.
Findings Deemed Warranted.
"All of these matters again have
been given careful consideration. The
evidence previously submitted by vari
ous state officers, public employers, ex
pert accountants and a number of pri
vate citizens as well as some prisoners
has been carefully considered and fully
warrants the findings herein.
'Several of those concerned have
made statements credited to them by
the press at variance with their sworn
testimony before us, and we are con
strained to confirm our report on their
sworn testimony before us rather than
on their unsworn newspaper state
ments. "Steps are already being taken by the
parties concerned to remedy some of
the matters called to their attention
by the report, particularly as the same
pertains to the money belonging to the
prisoners' loan fund and to the estab
lishment of a more comprehensive sys
tem of cost accounting as well as some
other matters.
Parofe Law Change I rged.
"Your grand jury recommends legis
lation prohibiting all officers and em
ployes from receiving or agreeing to
receive money, gratuities, ct cetera,
from prisoners, including those on pa
role, or from anyone else on their be
half, and prohibiting anyone connected
with the penitentiary other than the
warden or deputy warden from solicit
ing pardons or paroles from the gov

son that existing laws do not' provide
for the punishment of the reprehensi
