Would Repeal War
Washington. A Joint resolution pro
posing repeal of resolutions by con
gress declaring a atate of war with
Germany and Austria Ilungsry waa re
ported out by the aenate foreign re
lations committee by a strict party
vote. . ,
The resolution waa Introduced by
Senator Knox, republican. Pennsylvan
ia, as a substitute for the republican
resolution recently passed by the
bouse. Leaders of both parties pre
dicted several weeks of discussion with
little prospect for action until near the
time aet for a recess for national con
ventions. Straight-out repeal of the war reso
lutions Is the principal object of the
Knox substitute, which would request
the president to establish friendly di
plomatic and commercial relatione
with Germany and with "the govern
ments and peoples of Austria and Hun
gary." Like the house resolution, it
would reserve all American rights un
der the treaty.of Versailles and provide
for repeal of war legislation and for
war powers of the president. It would
bold German property until all Aroeri-

ceptance of the resolution's terms by
Germany within 45 days under penalty
of a commercial embargo.

Order Your Repairs Now
We want you to get full service out of every
implement you have purchased from is. If repair parts will
prolong materially the .service you can get out of your old
machines, we want to assist you in getting new parts.
Don't Trait until your busiest season. Make the most of your present
spare time and save important time later by doing your repairing now. Get
your machines ready for field use before you need them. Right now is a good
time to go over every implement that you can repair and can use profitably this
season. Jot down every part that needs replacing plow shares, cultivator shovV
els, wheel boxes and worn parts.
Bring this list to us. If we ran't supply you fully from stock

old machines when you have plenty of
time to do it. It will save you costly de
lays when your machines are needed badly
in the field.
In "checking up" your ..present imple
ment equipment, there is just one thing to
consider. Will the old implements, when
repaired, give you full service for this year
at least? If not, it will be economy to get
new up-td-date equipment.
In addition to the repair service we want
to render, we also want an opportunity to)
show you our full line of new machines,
many of which are greatly improved.
When you bring that repair order in, take
enough time to took over our new stock of
implements. We have a number of labor-;
saving machines that you can put to prof "
itable use on your place.
