Peace, temperance and better edu-
cation were the three main issues
which the State Grange advocated in
a spirited meeting yesterday after-
noon in Hill auditorium. At least one
thousand delegates and friends were
in attendance and responded heartily
to the efforts of the speakers.
E. C. Lindemann, state representa-
tive for the "Boys' and Girls' Club
Work" of Michigan, entered the plea
for better educational institutions for
the farm girls and boys of the state.
He declared that the only hope of the
state's agricultural prosperity lay in
the boys and girls and unless they
were properly prepared to undertake
the tasks, the farming industry would
Mr. Lindemann illustrated his point
with stereoptican pictures of the
work of the young people interested
in his club work. He also gave figures
to show that the boys of the state were
beating their fathers in the production
of potatoes, corn, and apples; and as
a fitting climax to his address, pre-
sented the boy who was the chain-
pion potato grower of Michigan
last year. His final plea was then for
aid in the work of educating the young
farmers so that the $250,000,000 loss
suffered every year in this country by
the farmers could be eliminated.
Ivan Chapel, a 14-year-old youth
from Lansing, represented the tem-
perance faction and in a speech won-
derfully clear for such a youngster,
hurled a challenge at the fathers and
mothers present to take steps now to
rid the state and the nation of the1
liquor evil. "Do not do this," saidt
Chapel in conclusion, "to save onlyE
those who have already fallen vic-
tims to the drink habit, but to savet
the boys of today so that they willt
grow up to be suitable citizens of thea
In concluding the exercises the I
Grange society presented a "Panto-r
mime of Peace," which interpretedt
"Faith, Hope, and Charity" as differ-
ent stages of a mother's love for her9
boy, and how her wish for him wasd
that he might be a power for peace,b
and an aid to the nation's prosperity.

Although granting that the steps of
President Wilson towards national
preparedness are good, the National
Security League does not believe that
they are potent enough. Their idea is
embodied in the telegram received by
the Ann Arbor branch on Saturday,
which caused the local executive com-
mittee to telegraph back their assur-
ances of hearty cooperation. The
telegram from the central office in
New York city was as follows:
"The ' National Security League
urges the vital importance of prompt
action to meet the emergency caused
by the present lamentable unprepared-
ness of the nation. It also recognizes
that if the various elements of this
nation, who are united in a desire for
such action, insist too stubbornly on
their varying views as to details, the
whole movement may be delayed or
frustrated. It is gratifying that the
present administration so earnestly
advocates all measures for national
defense and believes that citizens of
all parties should lend theirsupport
towards securing the necessary legis-
lation at the coming session of con-

that the advice of the General Board
and General Staff of the Army should

announced by the President in his
message should be brought to com-

and as to the army program, it be-
lieves that the regular army should
be enlarged at least to the very mod-
erate recommendations of the Gen-
eral Staff, that a proper reserve sys-

the proposed creation of a citizen

the defense of the country must de-

following answer was dispatched:
