Willard Clapp says that they are so numerous at his place that they have been mak ing big inroads on his corn crip which is located close to the timber.

ROOT IS CALLED UPON TO EXPLAIN Senator Lewis Delivers First Attacks on Republican Keynote Address. of 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 intervention. 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 for action. 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.
