Balky Mule May Be

Vancouver. Wash.. March 17. We
have all heard of the southern mule
driver who. when his mules refused to
go. built a fire under them as a means
of persuasion, but It was the happy
thought of a Vancouver man that
prompted him to try the same persuasive
measures with a balky Ford. At least
this is the story given by the fire de
partment crew, which was called to
Eighth and B. streets Sunday .morning
to put out a fire which threatened to
consume a Ford.
The owner of the machine and his wife
arose early, intending to spend the' day
along one of Clarke county's beautiful
Inland waterways. , Continuous crank
ing failed, however, to arouse the Ford,
which seemed to be afflicted with the
sleeping sickness. In his wrath the un
happy owner procured a torch and is
said to have held it under the .engine.
Just to "warm" it up. Some minutes
later the fire department arrived.' A
few exposed wires were burned, other
wise the car was uninjured when the
chemicals had completed their work.

German Government's Efforts to
Suppress Spartacans Meeting
With Only a Partial Success.
j - ;
Few i?esponses to Appeals I for
Volunteers to Fight Reds in
Berlin; Cabinet Faces Crisis.
By Frank J. Taylor
Berlin, March ,13. (By Courier to
Paris.) German radicals, heartened by
the failure of the government to stamp
out completely the Spartacan uprising,
are planning to proclaim establishment
of a soviet republic next month.
While the cabinet continues to strug
gle with the' Spartacans and tries to
untangle the apparently hopeless food,
industrial; and political problems, all
radical elements are uniting in- perfect
ing, their revolutionary program. They
are confident they will win from the
exhausted government.
Even government offices are begin
ning to admit the cabinet's position is
seriously threatened despite the optimis
tic reports given out ty the official press
bureau and the semi-official : Wolff
agency. Conservative members of the
foreign office, supporters of War Min
ister Noske and others, are speculating
as to the endurance of the Kbert
Scheidemann government.
Although the government has by no
means suffered - military defeat, its
troops have not succeeded in surround
ing the Spartacans, who "have - escaped
from various nets and have retreated
into the suburbs,! where they are resist
ing desperately and cleverly. The gov
ernment so far baa been unable to mus
ter enough troops t6 capture the Sparta
cans and at the same time effectively
guard the large Berlin area. The news
papers are filled with advertisements
calling for volunteers to fill 'up the re
publican regiments, but the responses
are negligible. 1 , ' '' '
It is evident that large numbers of
the Spartacans who escaped from , Ber
lin are stirring up further trouble in out
lying districts. 4 Their hatred , has , been
fanned by. Noske's order to execute all
who resist the" igorrernment.

Claim of French Minister That

Wilson and Other American Com

on Inclusion of Covenant.
By Carl B. Groat -
Paris, March . 17. (U. P.) Foreign
Minister -Pichon's claim that the League
of Nations will not be included in the
preliminary peace treaty wss emphat
ically denied today in American official
circles.
President Wilson and the other Ameri-'
can commissioners are standing pat on
Its inclusion, it was stated. Surprise
was expressed that Pichon should hold
views to the contrary.
The president, it is known, intends to
make a strong fight for inclusion of the
league. He feels that France and Great
Britain heed the league even more than
America. Hence, Pichon's ? statement
astounded and somewhat, piqued the
Ame$cans. '1'" . '
An early' peace is desired by Presi-,
dent Wilson, it was stated, and he
holds that Inclusion of the league in j
the pact is vital to America. He was
said to be especially "surprised at Pi-
chon's . action, in view of the fact that I
the. French, along with the others, j
signed, the plenary resolution in Janu- j
ary for the league's Inclusion. i
The president planned to attend this
afternoon's meeting of the supreme war
council and those close to him believed j
that a restatement of his position might j
be forthcoming.
Pichon. who made his statement yes- j
terday in his weekly conversation with j
correspondents, declared that although
fundamental principles of the final i
peace are laid down in the preliminary j
treaty, the League of Nations probably:
will not be included. He said that

however, until it is ratified by all, or a

who would oppose or stand against it:
they will be scattered as wreckage along
tha shore."
From C W. Swenson, 70 Grand ave
nue north comes this : - "Although th
United States will undoubtedly be called
upon to accept morally and financially
the guardianship of world peace, the
League of Nations is worth the price."
' Peace, as constant as humanity can
devise, lathe great oak that win develop,
from the little acorn planted in world
affairs when the League of Nations
covenant is operative. . Oregon people
can truthfully say, when the covenant
has spread its protection over civilized
peoples, that they had no' little part in
bringing the League; of Nations Into
being. --'"-- T .
