yesterday. This district, known
as the first Rotary district, com
prises Oregon, Washington. Brit
ish Columbia and Alaska. Mr.
Lamb's term of office is nearing
its close and he is completing a
round of visits to the clubs in
the district.
Mr. Lamb recited the history
and growth of Rotary from the
time it' was first organized in
Chicago in 1910. In 12 years it
has grown from 16 clubs, three
of which were in this district, to
1260 clubs with a total member
ship of 86,000, located in 28
nations of the world.
He declared that the great pro
gram and objects of Rotaf y are
to promote better relations among
business-acquaintances and to in
troduce the idea of service to oth
ers into business relations to
make a man's word in business
as good as his written tcontract.
A program for the promotion of
International good will was add
ed at the Los Angeles convention
this year.
"Rotary must have objectives"
the speaker declared, that will be
for the betterment of the com
munity, and Rotary clubs should
be the training ground of the
yOung, who are to become the
business and professional' men of
tomorrow. ' He declared that
while contact with the boy of,
little opportunity is important, he
was 'more afraid of .'the sons of
members themselves,' or of other
business men who- are so engross
ed in !husi.hess that they find little
or no time to get acquainted with
them, let' alone guide them and
instruct, them in "the Rotarian
principles' of service above self;

few nights ago a roamer who
voluntarily applied for a frea

Objects to Later Continuance
of Trial, Wants Chance
At Governor Allen
EMPORIA, Kas., Nov. 15.
William Allen White late today
blocked the effort of Governor
Allen to have White's trial on a
charge ot violatin the Kansas
industrial court law delayed until
the governor had retired from of
fice. White was arrested for put
ting a placard expressing 50 per
cent sympathy for the striking
shopmen in the window of the
office of the Emporia Gazette, of
which he is editor.
Decision Pleases
Judge W. G. Harris, in district
court today, refused the request
of Governor Allen that the trial
be continued after November 22,
as it now appears on the docket. I
The continuance was opposed by
White's attorney.
The Emporia editor said he was
pleased with the decision because
it assures him a real trial.
"Perhaps you'll end in jail."
White's attorney suggested.
Jail Xo Worry
"That's all right," the editor
replied. "I would rather be sent
to Jail for differing with a gover
nor like Henry Allen." who has the

Sham Battle Fought at Cap
itol and Hostile Forces
Attack White House
WASHINGTON'. Nov. 15. -
Washington was "saved" . from
"enemy" air raiders today when a
defending squadron of army
planes, warned by scouts, took the
eir and repelled the invaders In a
desperate thepretical encounter.
The victory of the defense was
complete. The entire fleet of five
hostile bombers was "captured"
and after "surrender" of the pilots
all hands went to lunch at Boiling
Battle Coniplet
The attacking force consisted of
five Martin bombers, which left
Langley Field, Va., this morning
and under leaden skies and
through obscuring rain showers,
drove toward Washington intent
on "bombing" the White House,
treasury, navy yard, war college,
the capitol and other important
government structures. Ward that
the enemy was on tbe way was all
that reached the defending forces
at Rolling field.
Three big scouting planes equip
ped with radio instruments shot
into the air and circled southward
grouping for contact with the
enemy. Low visibility hampered
their work, but finally the enemy
machines were spotted down the
Potomac river pelow Alexandria
and the word was flashed by radio
to Boiling field while the scouts
maneuvered to keep the hostile
craft in sight.
Enemy Defeated
Back at the fieid, three dimin
utive fighting planes of the type
used by the air "aces' overseas
shot up, circling their way high
into the banked clouds above. They
had scarcely disappeared from
sight-overhead before three heav
ier fighting craft followed them
into the lofty ambush that was be
ing laid for the enemy.
The distant grumble of the
planes of the enemy bombers gave
notice that they were at hand.
The five big planes from Langely
came on with the target buildings
Lthey sought ahead and began
swooping downward to the at
attack. From the clouds above
dropped the six defending planes
into the midst of the enemy and
the battle of Washington was on.
The fighters circled and twisted
around the enemy machines in
every maneuver of battle practice,
picking off the bomb'ng planes
one at a time, until the last of the
quintet had been forced to earth.

The actual landing of all the
planes was made at Boiling field
