This is the time to look over your tires with the
idea of making them last through the winter. Of
course, if you must have new tires, Diamonds are the
only ones to buy at this time of the year or atany
other time, so far as that goes but the idea we wish
to convey is that we can make the old ones last
through the bad weather, and save you money on
your tire bill by repairing the worn ones. Bring
them in, and if they are worth repairing we will tell
you what it will cost if they are not worth repair
ing, We will tell you that, just as readily. We can't
make a new tire out of one that is worn out, but we
can take a damaged tire and repair it so you will
get many more miles out of it before it goes to the
Diamond Tire & VulcanizingCo.

Tlio World War lias shown us quite
clearly that armies reflect tho spirit
of the people from whom they como
lather than create a spirit of thoir
own, so that tho .size of tho army Is
not so Important from the point of
view now under consideration as tho

ho ndded, leaving only the method

Tho recommendation for an In

disinclination toward the prospoct
"Thoso who know tho spirit of the

"will not ascrlho to It any provoca-

tho career and tho sacrifice of the
soldier, but tho mild and spectacu

become a storn and cruel business.
nnd while there Is cheerful willing-

Tho text of tho Initial order to

shows ho was Instructed to keep tho
American army "a soparato and dis

forces, tho Identity of which must
bo preserved." Tho method of co

his discretion and, Mr. linker added,
that tho authority thus conferred
"was never In any particular modi

great German military machine, Uk
toll levied upon tho man power of
the'o nut.'i riH had been appalling.
and It was becoming increasingly
difllcult for them to maintain their
divisions at full strength. Tho sub
marine peril menaced tho supply of
munitions of war and of foodstuffs i1
o, great civil populations.
"Meanwhile tho German armies
had crushed long-planned offensive:;
by the allied armlc3 with apparent
ease, and hy the collapse of Hussln
were daily being strengthened hy di
visions of trained soldiers bro.ight
from the eastern rront until tho men-
aco of superior numbers and appar
ently Inexhaustible sunpllcs of tho
munitions of v.ar haunted the coun
cils of tin allied pov.-ors.
"Hut thoso who visited General
Pershing's headquarters during tho
war know that from tho beginning
there was resolution and a clear
sighted knowledge of tho size of tho
task. It would have been idle to
plan for a small American army.
On the other hand, it required im
agination nnd daring to plan for a
large one to take a million Ameri
can men to Franco, separate them
frcm home by 3000 miles of ocean
and subject them to the hazard of
the uncertain and diminishing food
supplies of Europe. And thore still
remained the further questien: If
these difficulties could be overcome,
could they be overcome in time?
'General Pershing and his asso
ciates gave no room to dsubt and
accepted no counsel except that of
determination. When tho critical
hour came and the combined ener
gies of the United States and Great
Dritaln did surpass all previous es
timates and land 2,000,000 men in
France, the arrangements made for
their reception and for their main
tenance were found Inadequate; and
hnd the war gone on and the 80- di
vision program been carried out, the
imagination and daring of these
early plans would still have been
"It Is a. wonderful story and ex
hibits at its best the confidence in
their Institutions which Americans
may Justly have."
Mr. Daker opposes creation of a
department of the air because of the
undeveloped state of the Industry,
necessitating "federal regulation,"
as well as because of military con
siderations. It would be just ns fa
tal to soparato forces from tho army,
Since June 30, 1918, the report
shows, it hns been found necessary
to use fedoral troops on 16 different
occasions to preserve law and order.
Tho incidents listed rango from In
dustrial Workers of tho World ac
tivities, in Arizona to recent move
ments in tho coal fields. Mr. Baker
cocludes his report with an appre
ciation of tho sorvlco of General
Poyton C. March, chief of staff.
