Calls Col. Roosevelt "Most Seditious
Man of Consequence in
Cannot Citizen Say What He Thinks of
President Wilson, Asks Senator
Washington, Jan. 21.- Smoldering
fires of partisan feeling were set
ablaze in the senate today by Senator
Stone, veteran Democrat, with a long
prepared speech accusing Republicans
of playing politics in their criticisms
of the government's conduct Qf the
war and calling Theodore Roosevelt,
"the most seditious man of conse-
quence in America."
Republicans Answer
There had been plenty advance no-
tice of the speech which administra-
tion leaders sought vainly to induce
the Missouri senator to abandon or
postpone, There were many sharp in-
terruptions during the two hours Sen-
ator Stone was speaking and when he
closed, Senators Penrose, Lodge and
others on the Republican side answer-
ed with vigorous- defense for their
right to make proper criticisms of in-
efficiencies, and with counter charges
of partisanship.
May Citizen Criticize?
Senator Penrose interrupted Senator
Stone with the following:
"Does the senator advance the ex-
traordinary doctrine that every citi-
zen hasn't the right to say what he
thinks of Mr. Wilson without going to
jail? Does he say citizens haven't the
aright to say that Mr. Wilson surrounds
himself with persons so incompetent
thatthe war program has been serious-
ly delayed, or that he hides himself
away inexcessively?"
Senator Lodge of Massachusettes,
deplored injection of politics into the
war. He defended Colonel Roosevelt,
declaring that the Republicans have
given and will continue to give their
support to the administration toward
winning the war, but will continue
criticisms of mistakes and inefficien-
"Smileage" books containing coupons
good for admission of soldiers to camp
entertainments will be sqld on the
campus and in the city starting Mo-
day. Prof. E. H. Kraus has been ap-
pointed by the military entertainment
council of the war department to con-
duct the campaign in Ann Arbor.
In order to afford the soldiers at
the various training stations and can-
tonments amusement of the highest
class, the government has erected Lib-
erty theaters, with seating capacities
from 3,000 to 5,000, for the sole pur-
pose of attracting actors and lectur-
ers there. Men highest in theaters,
lyceums, and chautauquas are co-op-
erating with the war department.
The "smileage" books contain 20
five-cent coupons and will sell for $1
apiece. These books can be sent to
friends at the camps, and are good for
the duration of the war. Because of
the low wages that the soldiers re-
ceive they would be unable to enjoy
the amusements, and the war depart-

ment has decided that the "smileage"
books will solve the problem.
"Smileage" books will be sold all
over the United States beginning Mon-
day and continuing for one week. The
city will be canvassed by the many
o-ganizations, while societies on the
campus will take care of the students.
Coupon books will also be on sale,at
book stores, banks, and the post office.
Red Cross Observes Coal-less Day
Coal-less day was observed by the
Washtenaw county Red Cross chapter
here yesterday. All regular work
ceased in order to help save fuel. A
county officer of the organization, who
found it necessary to work, labored in
the cold.
Whether the rooms will close every
Monday with the stores and factories,
is doubtful. The measure is tempor-
ary and it is probable that in the;
future operations will continue every.

Wilson Supports faker

Washington, Jan. 21.-All doubt of President Wilson's view of
proposals in congress for reorganization of the government's war
machinery was swept away tonight by a statement in which the Pres-
ident said the war department had accomplished a task of unparallel-
ed magnitude. He said he regarded Secretary Baker as one of the
ablest public officials he had ever met. The President denounced
the congressional war investigations.
Senator Chamberlain's reference to "inaction and ineffectiveness
of the government" in New York, Saturday, was flatly called by the
President as "an astonishing and absolutely unjustifiable distortion
of the truth."

Washington, Jan. 21.- Two of the
chief accomplishments sought by the N
government in closing down Indus-

come out of the progress of the war,"

of the Rhodes scholarship fund, at the

Secondly, it has made it perfectly cer-
tain that this war is going to be a war
of exhaustion. And thirdly, the final
strain of this war is coming upon the
British and -American nations."
Sir Parkin spoke of the need of
co-operation between England and the
United States. He said that they must
believe in each other and work to-
gether. Great Britain, he stated, has
thrown 7,000,000 men into the field,
0,000,000 of which came from the moth-
er country.
The speaker mentioned the effect
of the war on Oxford university.
Only 300 men now remain in that in-
stitution, he declared.
"We couldn't sleep over night in our
beds comfortably if we didn't think'
that we could turn our government out
within a week," asserted Sir Parkin,
as an illustration of the fact that pop-
ular will in England rules.
Men should work to increase their
powers so that they may better be
able to take their places after the
war, said the speaker in regard to the
reconstruction work which will fol-
low the declaration of peace.
Sir Parkin's talk was preceded by
two vocal solos rendered by Irving
Miller, School of Music. During the
afternoon "Jazz" was furnished by
an orchestra composed of Carl Wilmot,
'19, Lewis Mattern, '19, and Reid Ev-
ery, '20E.

Herbert Hoover, food administrator
for the United States, sends a message
to the women in the graduating class-
es of the universities urging them to
pursue studies dealing especially with
food. These studies should be ac-
companied by courses in chemistry,
physiology, and economics. It will be
well, according to Mr. Hoover, also to
acquire the arts of public presentation
of this knowledge to the people who
need it.
"There is a diversity of tasks and
therefore, a diversity of talent and
training can be used. All our ques-
tions now center about food, its pro-
duction, its distribution, its use, its
conservation. University women hav-
