Christenson. and- Mra. W. K. Davis and Harry Johns were also guests that evening. " In a short prelude to his r TOon Sunday night Mr.-Reynolds . spoke as follows concerning the question of military ' prepared ness: "At time, when men's blood is pulsing thru their veins at war heat, it is welt for, ua -to think only and seriously concern ing the great national questions thit are presented to-m and par ticularly of the one question that is agitating this country just at present 1 refer to military pre paredness. In this " question there are two extremes the one extreme being that we shall have an army like Gernvny and a navy like Great Britain's and the other being that we shall , have no array or navy other than just enough to keep ourselves straight With the man who Bays that our army and navy should be the largest in the world we have no sympathy, for are we not now viewing with, horror tho hnrm-fil ont come such a noliev of nreDaredness in blood bespattered, tear-stained Europe, "With the man who says dis armament we can agree when such a disarmament includes al the nations. But until sin shall ' ease to have such a hold upon the people and sin is really at the foundation-of all demands for armament-just so long will nations distrust one another's motives and : remain armed. --Our worthy president offers a program of preparedness where by he nope to conciliate the two extremes" and the same time . -walk on safe ground. President Wilson would work for an army ( adequate only for legitimate peaceful uses, but supplemented by such a large body of citizens trained to arms as would be pro Tided for by the Garrison Con- tinental Army plan. .' As for the navy he believes that alt that will be necessary will be to ''hasten the pace in the policy " we have long been pursuing'' Af Ur Wilson's olan is a welling chorus of approval from the newspapers ot the land. AwkZi few say it is too mild and others poiaoned f rom the takttat to that ir tends to militarism. These plana could undoubtedly . be carried out without their in tention being misconstrued by nr mtinn. But for no' other nation would such a program be possible without arousing the suspicions of the nations. ll:e United States however, has set a precedent in the Mexican situa tion that has given to the world a guarantee that such an, arma ment will be used only for peace purposes. Most people can agree with President Wilson's plan. But after all. is said this ques tion still remains unanswered. "Whv ahmild we Drenare for war?" It isn't that we should hone to outdo any other nation. They have the sam privilege, of increase that we have. Is it be cause we fear England, our own bkiod relative? Yet the mi of England bars always been Iriendlr altho we have had to rulers. Do we fear Germany? That cannot be so for it is, not yet made manifest what Ger many will be able to do whether she is defeated- r victorious in the present conflict Father more Germany is not showing any antagonism toward us, and we wonder what she would have tQ gain by conquering ua when her people can come here without shedding one drop of blood. Is it that bugbear Japan, which the military men have used an nually to frighten Congress into donating more money for their purposes.-' Japan, who has look to us for fatherly counsel, with whose development we' have had such a ; share. We are spending for military prepared ness ..about 250 million dollars, much of which goes Bto the "pork barrel, "in order to buy men to perform their patriotic duty. Were the men who handle this vast sum for Uncle Sam possessed of a small spark of the patriotism about which they howl there would be no need for a hastening of our past military program. This sum would suffice to give adequate defense- to the couqjry, which, after all is just what President Wilson is work ing for. . . u . : ..

In the first quarter Echo started the game by kick ing off to lone and carried the bail within a yard of their goal in yery short order, but lone braced up and held them to a scoreless game. On several oc casions the Echo lads fumbled the ball and once in the " first quarter Ray Sparry of lone se cured the ball. In the second quarter the linemen were -called out in the field twice to settle disputes to see if Echo had made their yardage. No points were made in the first second or third quarters, but in the middle of the fourth after Roy Blake put on the helmeet in place of Rusty Cochran who was nearly swk, lone made their touchdown.
