General John J. Pershing was for-
mally designated by President Coolidge
as president of the Tacna Arica pleb-
iscite commission on which the ex-
ecputive relies to end the 40-year-old
dispute between Chile and Peru under
his recent award as arbitrator.
The former commander of the Am-
erican expiditionary forces thus was
called once more to active, patriotic!
service for an undertaking he knows
will involve heavy responsibilities and
much labor, deferring indefinitely the
retirement he has enjoyed in nameI
only since he relinquished his post
as chief of staff of the army.
In a brief statement issued after
the announcement of his appointment
at the White House, Gbneral Persh-
ing made evident the spirit which
prompted him to accept his new task:
"My very deep interest in the wel-;
fare of the American republics to the
south and my desire for the maintain-,
once of friendly relations among us'
all make it a pleasure to be of any
possible service towards these ends.
I consider the duties of the mission
to which the president has assigned
rne very important and most sincerely
hope that they may be performed to
the satisfaction of all concerned.
General Pershing is the first to be
named of the three members of the
commission which will supervise the
determination by popular vote and
under suitable safeguards of the sov-
ereignity of the two disputed terri-

Warm, summer weather prevailed
over the area in southern Illinois and
Indiana, devastated by the tornado
last Wednesday, and relief work pro-
gressed rapidly along with the burial
of the dead and the housing of the
homeless. Rebuilding saws and ham-
mers glinted in the sun light, while
doctors and nurses worked hard to
save the lives of the injured.
Rechecking of the casualty list with
additional dead from wounds raisedI
the total in some places and reducedi

workers also announced that the 2,9391
elude hundreds of persons who had
been injured, but who had failed to
report the fact owing to the excite-!
ment and necessity of aiding others

The total property loss has not
been compiled but will likely be more
than $12,000,000 in Illinois alone. With
some $3,000,000 in Indiana and about
$1,000,000 in Missourt, Tennessee and
Kentucky the property loss is likely
to exceed $18,000,000. This figure is
