who, at the head of a detachment of
seven men, killed 20 Germans, took
132 prisoners, including a major and
three lieutenants, and put thirty-six

wearing the Congressional medal of
honor and the French Croix de Guerre.
Sergeant York's home is in Pall Mall,

Sergeant York won his honors in the
Argonne drive last October. He was
then a corporal and was sent out with
detachment of 16 men under Ser
geant Early, to silence German ma
chine gunners who were endeavoring
to protect the advance of a German
battalion. Sergeant Early and seven
of his men were almost immediately
killed, and Corporal York took com
mand. He silenced machine gun after
machine gun, and when he returned
with his prisoners the proposed Ger
man attack had ceased to be even a
proposition. Sergeant York will be

ta Lenska, Russian prima donna, gave
a grand concert.
Dr. Charles Zeubhn, of Boston, for
merly of the University of Chicago
was present Tuesday afternoon and
gave his dynamic lecture on lhe
World's Highway." Dr. Zeublin said
in part:
" "If 'Westward the star of empire
takes its way,' what is to be the direc
tion of world progress when imperial
ism comes to an end ? The history of
commerce is the history of Phoenicia
Greece, Rome, Spain, Portugal, the
Netherlands, Britain. There it reaches
its climax. For several hundred years
Britain has been mistress of the seas.
In 1855, the United States was threat
ening this supremacy; but Britain's
iron ships and our Civil War put us
out of the running until the devasta
tion ot the World War gave us ou
new chance. In the World War Ger
many committed commercial suicide.
It Bntains position seems no longer
so clear, she still dominates the worth

contemqrary Mediterranean Sea.
x'n.; ..,. i. ,i
ination of the world by the peoples
surrounding the North Atlantic Ocean.
If this domination is maintained by
mperialism it means perpetual war;
if bv democracy it insures the just
organization of the world.
Whatever else is done to avoid an
infinitely more devastating war than
the last one, we must have freedom
of the seas in peace. This means that
all strategic waterways shall be under
international control not only the
Dardanelles and the Kiel Canal but the
buez and Panama Canals. Until we
are ready to pay this price we are im
perialists, inviting war.
At night came the debate on Govern
ment ownership of railroads, with Dr.
Zeublin for the affirmative and Hon.
Leslie M. Shaw, former secretary of
the treasury, for the negative.
Dr. Zeublin said:
"The Germans might have marched
victoriously into Paris instead pf com-
lnjr to receive their instructions as to
their place in the sun if the railroads
of the United States had remained in
private hands. Civilians of limited pa
triotism have had abundant cause of
complaint at restricted service, but the
railroads were not mobilized ior ci
vilian benefit They have been run
primarily to rush our soldiers and sup
plies to France and to bring back the
victors. Every welcome to returning
soldiers Is a rebuke to those whose ig
norance or interests would surrender
the roads to private owners.
Personal initiative we must have in
greater measure than private owner
ship ever permitted. All employees
must have a financial interest in effi
ciency, but the speculative boards of
directors must go, and stockholders
proxies be scrapped along with wood
en vcars. Government ownership aad
private operation are the answer to
both the speculator and the politician
Gov. Shaw argued that the real is
sue in this controversy Is between in
dividual! and collectivism and the
ultimate end sought Is State Social
Ism.
If the government ever owns the
railroads "pork" will be distributed
not bv the barrel but In refrigerator

ALTON PACKARD.
Alton Packard, widely known as a
master cartoonist, humorist singer of
songs and -withal a moralist, will-
appear in a joy night supreme on the
concluding program of the Redpath
Chautauqua.
As a cartoonist Mr. Packard fet
ches upon sheets of paper and can
vasses eight feet squar3, sr.id to be the
largest sketches ever attempted on the
platform, so ti ey can easily be seen in
detail from any part of the big Cnau
tauqua tent.
Packard s humor has a rare quality
of being supremly human and may be
best described as genial. The feeling
that prevails in a packard audience is
said to be so different from - that of
any other that he is called the cartoon
ist and humorist who is so different.
Packard's work is all original. Even
his songs are all his own composition
and some of them are very funny.
His songs "Yaller Dawg" "When You
Get What You Want You don't Want
It" "Smile and Look the Other" "Get
Up" and others always roars of applause.
AT CHAUTAUQUA TOMOOROW,
"IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE? - "
A complete production of "It Pays i- . j
to Advertise" will be given by a com- ' v ,
pany of eight tonight. " Si
"It Pays to Advertise" is a sparkling
American comedy full of good, clean,
wholesome laughs.
The central character is soaked in
the gospel of advertising.
It is the familar story of the rich
father and the idle son. The father
makes a wager with his stenographer
that she cannot induce the son to go
to work. She succeeds in getting him
interested in a business proposition.
He forms a. partnership with a fellow
who' belives with all of his; heart and
soul and amazing nerve that it pays
to advertise.
The father is a soap manufacturer
and the young fellows enter the same
field, flooding the territory with ads
of their soap. The ad campaign was a
tremendious success but the young
enthusiasts forgot to make soap. The
public demands the new soap and the
youngsters force the soap trust to buy
them out at an enormous price.
