Fnless progress can be made toward
ending world wars, we've reached a
point where civilization may destroy
Itself, General Pershing told the houtse
naval affairs committee.
Pendilng added, however, "Until an
agreement ha been reached among
all the great power, the United States
must continue its mnal and army pro
gram." Fershing favored efforts to
bring about a meeting of the great
power to disarmament and said
he has high hope that such a meeting
will be successful. If Harding calls a
disarmament conference, all powers
will respond, he added.
Pershing made light of reports that
Germany ha heavy hidden strength,
and raid it is unlikely she could start
another war aoon. "War between the
United States and England is hardlv
conceivable," he Slid. "With that les
son before us, the armament reduc
tion meeting of nation ought to be en
tered into very hopefully."
War Appropriation Continue.

"(From Ovcrheck & Cooke Co.)
Wheat: As Indicated early, there
was a market change in seniment
oerniKht and in consequence buying
met less opposition. The buying,
however, appeared lo be maip.ly for
short account and as there was noth
ing constructti e in the general news,
the advance brought out renewed
selling pressure and the market clos
ed with a weak lone. There was some
talk of nn export demand but no bus
iness confirmed and tho decline of 3c
in gulf wheat premiums did not tud5
v:tte an urgent inquiry. The otreme
high point today was reached on-buying
induced by the publication hy
Hroomliail of the Argentine duties,
which the trade construed as mean
ing a miper tax of about 14c a bushel,
hiit whicli turned out to be the regu
lar duty charged from month to
month ami was really 3-4c tower than
the Janmry tax,
Shortly before the close, rumors from
the seaboard had that the ArKentme
sending two (government would probably not im
1 pose a super tax on wheat exports for
the time being. Should this prove
ttue, tho market will. In all probabil
ity soek a lower level to meet Argen

An attempt to hold up Tom Gurdane,
former city marshal, was foiled by a
left hook to the jaw of the would-be
tick-up man at 6:30 last evening,
-ielivered by Mr. Gurdane. He took Ui
his heels and made for the light, leav
in his victim lyin on the ground In !

the railroad yards.
Two men lurking in the darkness
were seen by Mr. Gurdane as he took
a cut across the lt to make a grocery
delivery. (,no wt'tit behind some box
cars but; the other walked directly in
front of Mr. Hurdane and thrusting a
Pistol at his face ordered him to "put

-'low to comply. The man, small In

Quick as a flash, Mr, Gurdane, "put
