ROOT IS CALLED
UPON TO EXPLAIN
Senator Lewis Delivers First
Attacks on Republican
If by "Action He Did Not Mean
"War," Democrats Tell Him
to Speak Out.
Washington, Feb. 20. The first of
a series of challenges to republican
senator, to declare whether they favor
intervention in Mexico and war with
Germany, was delivered yesterday af
ternoon by Senator Lewis. A second
will come early next week from Chair
man Stone of the foreign relations
committee. Senator Williams prob-
ablv will make a third.
The democratic plan is to take the
text of the Root speech, with its as
sault on President Wilson's foreign
politics; accept it as the republican
keynote, and challenge the repub
ilcans to state just what they would
do if in power.
Lewis bore down on the argument
that for the United States to have
done other than write notes to Ger
many would have meant "war" and
that "action," following notes, in
Mexico, must inevitably have meant
Seek a Program.
The democratic plan is to force the
republicans to put up a definite pro
gram of foreign policy. Heretofore,
they say. the republicans have en
joyed themselves attacking the poli
cies of President Wilson without tell
ing what they would do if in his place.
As the democratic orators will read
the case, sixteen years of republican
administration have left the army and
navy of the country in such a position
that it dare not appeal to arms, even
if the sentiment of the country seemed
Lewis' speech was made on a short
notice after a talk with Senator
Stone. "Hypocrisy of Statesmanship,"
was its theme. "Uncalled for and
lacking in sympathy," he termed the
Root attack on Wilson.
"He would use Mexico and Germany
as steps toward republican success in
the next election," he declared. "Why
this change now; why this hypocrisj
of statesmanship?" he asked, after
reviewing Root's senatorial record,
raying it showed he had previously
disapproved of Mexican intervention
in behalf of "fatherless children and
women who will mourn."
Let Him Speak Out.
"As to Germany," Lewis said, "Root
said we need a president who'll ap
peal to something else than words. Is
only war possible? Let him declare
the campaign boldly. If he plans to
elect a republican president under
covert purposes of war against Ger
many, let him say so. What new
campaign fund sources are opening to
our republican friends? What inter
ests have they found who want war
against Germany? War now, when
sixteen years of republican rule have
left us with no navy, no army when
we could not defend ourselves for
twenty-four hours if our republican
friends are right?"
In defense of Root. Senator Smoot
denied the former ever obstructed ac
tion in defense of American honor.
Root must have been doubtful, how
ever, he said, as to the advisability
of persecuting Huerta.
GULLOM SOCIAL CLUB
TENDERS A FAREWELL
TO THE KEiL FAMILY
The Cullom Social club surprised
and gave a delightful farewell party
for Henry Keil and family, who are
moving to South Dakota this spring
to make their future home. The
merry companyT enjoyed themselselves
throughout the evening and until a
late hour with music, dancing and so
cial games, interspersed with lively
conversational chat, and as to swing
ing on the gate, all the youngsters
had to admit that the old-timers had
in reserve an unusually large amount
of pep and vim. To merely say that
all present had a good time would be
ruperfiuous, as the occasion was a
howling success from beginning to
end. Varied and delightful refresh
ments were served from time to time
and all agreed Mr. and Mrs. Keil were
the best of entertainers. Those in
vited to be present were: A. B. For
