as an American citizen' was re

ceremony and 'a large number of

from the large foreign element
in our midst. This 1 believe to be
attributed largely to the exclaslve
use of the English language in our
schools, public offices, churches
and social societies, and the pas
sage of laws for the promotion of
loyalty and improved standards of
citizenship.
Benefits of Citizenship
1 "Kvery year laws are being pas
sed taking away from aliens some
of . the benefits enjoyed by citiz
ens. It is unlawful for the state
or any county, city, town or mun
icipal corporation to employ, an
alien who- claimed military exemp
tion in the late war. It is a felony
for an alien to carry a concealed
weapon. He cannot hunt or fish
without securing a game license
at an expense of $25 In addition
to a hunter's or -angler's license.'
No person shall act as a guide
unless he Is a citizen of the Unit
ed States. Alien "public charg
es" are subject to deoortation. u
well as alien criminals convicted '
of a felony and sentenced to the
penitentiary for not less than- one
year. In many states no alien may
be appointed to hold any public
office, and only natural or fully
naturalized persons are permitted
to teach school.
CH.lxenfth.lp Cancelled
"An -alien who misrepresents
his attitude towards this govern
ment may have his Certificate
cancelled for fraud. That hap
pened to Frank W, Westerbach
35 years after its issuance. Many
have bad their certificates can
celled tor disloyalty. Pacts have
developed that during the a war
some naturalized persons resorted
to acts of arson, bomb throwing,
syndicalism and sabotage to help
the enemy. Those people have
had. and are, having, attention.
Hc-f of AmrrirnniHm
"We want to be sure, before a
certificate of citizenship is hand
ed to an immigrant that he has in
his heart the seed of the American
national spirit, and a real concen-
tlon of the fundamental principles
oi our government. All such are
welcome, the others we do not
want, either temporarily or per
manently. SIGNATURES TO GO

Admiral De pon of France con

ventions as agiintt the bombard

Mr. Root pointed out. however,
that those conventions wefe aimed
in that respect at land or naval
bombardment pot specifically nor
by implication j at aircraft bomb
ing. He added that Paris was
fortified and that most! of th?
cities of Europe had some sort
of defense which might be held
to make them liable to bombard
ment by an enemy, and suggested
that thej commute? might act to
extend the rule of international
law more clearly and apply it to
aircraft. ; !
There were two rules, Mr. Root
said, one that! a defended town
must not be bombarded without
warning, to permit non-combat
ants to seek Bafety, and the other
that undefended towns could not
be bombarded at all. The spirti
of these would prevent ; aircraft
from bombarding any town what
ever, he 'paid. i
The rules, Mr. Root insisted.
were inadequate as tbey are and
Mr- Hughes In agreement !Bad the
matter of necessity would squire

Sir Robert Dorden said it was

be limited specifically ! to the
terms of the! American agenda,
consisting of f'ru'es for tb.3 con
trol of new agencies of warfare."
The rtubjecti finally was sent to

However, Mr. DeValera's words
were' not' cheered by several of
his republican followers. Miss
MacSwiney, Llam Mellowes, David
Kent and others displayed a de
termination to fight out the re
publican cause. Miss MacSwiney
waa practically forcible ! in her
threat against! any attempt by the
new provisional government to
adopt the republican tri-eolor as
the Hag of the new free state.
Mr. Collins1 apparently thought
that they summon a ratifying bo
dy of members for southern Ire
land, including the four members
representing Trinity college. They
couM call it the Dail Eireann un
til somebody knowing Irish well
could find a 'better name for it.
This was immediately countered
with the reminder that! the Trin
ity college members would not
tako the Republican oath.
Collins Out of Order
Finally J. H- O'Kelly. minister
of education argued that Mr. Col
lins' motion was out of order be
cause no notice, had been given.
The speaker sustained the argu
ment, but pointed out that all the
proceedings today werej similarly
out of iorder; and could only be
carried Ion by consent, j Adjourn

he would hand in notice of his
motion.

helpful talk, full of sound advice

He said that the dignity of any

"Learn the best way to protect
the commodity you sell." he
urged. "Learn how to protect
each other; how; to give your cus
tomers and the public better,
more lasting service. Take stock
of your opportunities, and see if
you have gained: anything of good
ior me community during the
year. If you haven't, your work
has failed.
"We've passed the day of the
cave man, when every one was for
himself alone This is the day of
cooperation, and you tan join
hands in doing x. great work for
the community around you. Most
fortunes have j been made in
lands 80 per cent ot alt taxes
are paid by lands. It is your busi
ness to help adjust the taxes so
tl at the land, the homes, be not
overburdened. ,s
"The best field for the realtor
is in fostering ne ownership of
homes by n mai.y people as pos
sible. The man, with home and
even the tinniest plot of land of
bis own, is a safe citizen. He au
tomatically passes out of the an
archistic class. There is a vast na
tional shortage of housing. In
some places, even in Portland.
rents for both business and resi
dence property have already
reached almost to the prohibitive
stage. Whatever you can do to
encourage the building of homes
to houe the people clamoring for
shelter, is a national asset.
