Last night President Wilson issued his proclamation designat ing Thursday, Nov. 29th, as a day of thanksgiving and prayer. It breathes a national—a world— spirit for liberty, security, peace and the comradeship of common justice. It is a document of pro found import. It seems impos sible to have spokon more aptly and appropriately in tho midst of the world-war tragedy, sorrow aud peril through which the peo ples of all nations of the earth are now passing. NEW YORK PRO-OHIO CON. The state* of New York and Ohio on Tuesday expre*«eo themselves at the ballot box on "vote* for wo men." In New York the proposi tion was carried, but in Ohio It wmh lout. These are two of the plvotul state* of the Union—rather the two. -Normally, the former I* Democratic and the latter Republi can. The war situation in Europe is puzzling iu a measure. On the West front tho French, English and Americans are more than holding their own, but Germany and Austria appear to have combined all their strength to crush Italy and the ait nation of that country is serious. Italy needs help to combat the on slaught and the Allies are going,to her relief in as great haste as possi ble. The news that Americans have been kiilod and wounded in battle accentuates the terrible fact that we are in war. 0 Russia is still having internal troubles, but those are no should have been expected in a country that so recently emerged from a despotism and is trying to get its beurings and adjust itself to the demoracy which the unselfish leaders of that country are trying to establish.

C., Nov. 5 —the purposes and plans of the LaFay ette Association, which is to be come an important phase of the University of North Carolina ex tension work of the year, are to be clearly set forth in a small bul letin, to be published by the Bureau of Extension during this week. It is the purpose of this Association to bring together the various community forces in order that they may renew the demo cratic instincts as written in the blood of the founders of this na tion. The idea is expressed in the forthcoming bulletin as follows: "To renew the contact with the well-springs of American liberty, to see in the light of the eternal struggle the history of democracy, its we have written it within these shores in a period long to us but short in the minds of hnmanity; to help to secure for ourselves, by these means, that illumination of the spirit which must not only in form and direct our conduct tin the present crisis but also enable us to correct in our community and national life, whatever is not in accord with the ideals we main tain —all this is as surely a part of our duty as the sending of men and ships to the front. In the discharge of this responsibility many agencies Will assist. But the beginnings of democracy are found In the meetings of the folk, religious, recreative, political. It is to provide a simple means for the reuewal of some of tluse in stincts, written as they are in the Anglo-Sabcon blood, that the LaFayette Association is pro posed." To these principles LaFayette dedicated his life, and therefore the Association adopts his name. "The great Frenchman looked be yond his oountry to a land in which men were battling heroic ally against entrenched aud cruel autocracy. With no thought of self, with no chance of personal gain, oonstraiued by no necessity, he did what ho could to make a safe place iu the world for democ racy.'' The LaFayette Associa tion will havo as its purpose the development of certain new ideals and the inculcating of uew vir tues. The membership of tho LaFay ette Association is to consist of high school pupils, purents and others who are interested. Each local organization, or chapter, is to elect tho usual officers, includ ing an executive committee to direct the work. Meetings may be held iu the evenings or on Fri- afternoon. wTie work to be done will con sist of, in part, reading courses and discussion groups organized for tho study of topics suggested by tho central committee and sup plemented by University exten sion lectures, aud in part of cer tain activities planned and carried out by the local chapters to suit local needs. Current events,] American ideals, the history of democracy in Kugland, France and ltussia, aud the relations of tho United States to South Ameri can nations will be some of the topics for intensive study. Those studies will culminate in certain expressions of the comuiuuity life and spirit. Chief Justice White of the United States Supremo Court cele brated his ?2d birthday Saturday.

Huge Buildings for Offices in Wash ington. Washington, D.C., Nov. 5,1917. > —One of the manifold problems i presented by the war is that of j furnishing adequate office accom modations for the thousands of ; additional officials, clerks, and 1 other Federal servants who are pouring into Washington. The Government is exercising its pre rogative in this direction and has commandeered conveniently lo cated office buildings and apart ment houses with a free hand. In addition, it is erecting huge tem porary structures for use as offi ces, and in the building of these contractors are breaking time records for construction work. A building to house the six hundred officials and clerks of the CounciJ of National Defense, containing more than 100,000 square feet of floor space, was erected and fully equipped in fifty-three dayp. Simi lar buildings nearby are for the use of the forces of the Food Ad ministration, Fuel Administra tion, and Army Ordnance. Work is well under way on a mammoth structure which will cover throe city blocks to house the overflow of the War and Navy Depart ments, the contract for which calls for completion in four months. liy these methods the Govern ment keeps l n ad vance of its actual needs. At the present rate of in crease the usual 35,000 Federal employees in Washington will be more than doubled if the war con tinues another year. Workers of all kinds are being appointed, stenographers and typewriters and draftsmen for the service gener ally,- and what are known as schedule clerks, index and cata logue clerks, clerks qualified in statistics or accounting, and clerks qualified iu business administra tion for the Ordnance Department of the Army, being in great de mand.

"1 came 30 miles this morning, all the way from Yadkinville," declared Mr. Eaton in answer to questions from a number of his friends who happened to be present. "The rea son for the trip was that my wife had just finished the first bottle of this wonderful medicine, Dreco, and wafrted a fresh supply in a hurry. If you could see the difference this first bottle of Dreco has made in her you wouldn't wonder I was anxious to get her a fresh supply. "Why, for years she has in declining health. Indigestion, pains in the back and limbs, heart flutter ings and loss of rest seemed to drag her down and down. She is 54 years old and although she has tried many different remedies nothing seemed to help her until just lately when a friend told her about Dreco. She has only taken one bottle of this medicine and already we can see splendid results. If she keeps on improving at the rate she is going she will soon be a well woman." , Both Mr. and Mrs. Eaton are mem bers of the Missionary Baptist church and are most highly thought of in Yadkinville.
