TO FIGHT FOR WORLD PEACE
Interallied Veterans' Association Asks
Assistance From Ex-Service Men
In All Countries.
Recommending the establishment of
an International court followed by uni
ment, tbo Inter
association nt lta
convention In New,
Orleans lias called
men In nil allied
countlres to take
up the fight for
Charles licit rnnd,
n member of tho
of Deputies, was
dent of tho organization.
Another prominent delegate was
.Tulloii David, a member of tho Helglan
chamber of deputies one of the few
men to be captured by the Germans
who escaped and returned to their
old regiments. Ezlo Gloja. bend of the
Italian delegation, was wounded four
times with the loss of one leg.
Sessions of the convention were at
tended by twenty-eight representa
tives from tho
five members of
slovakia and Ser
bia. t, A manifesto Is
sued by the con
hopes for International amity. "It
seems providential," the statement, In
part, declares, "that wo, representing
fifteen million former servlco men
should be assembled at the very hour
when tho distracted world most needs
n unifying word. Tho burden of our
duty to speak our deepest convictions
to governments and the public rests
heavily upon us. Surely the voice of
the men who stood shoulder to
shoulder In tho trenches to save civil
ization, nnd who know the hearts of
the allied armies, should bo heard
equally with tbo utterances of pro
fessional statesmen and olllco holders.
"From this International reunion of
.allied war veterans, we send to our
comrades and to
tho world n mes
sage In behalf of
restoration o f
peace, order and
well being. It Is

fluenccs that make for distrust, dis
union nnd disaster, that the only wuy
to tranquility nnd prosperity for man
kind as n whole, lies In a return to n
sacred observance of those principles
upon which we achieved our victory
tho allied war alms. The calamities
which have since overtnken civiliza
tion have been primarily duo to re
creancy to those pledges."
Among tho other definite step
recommended by the war heroes were:
Full publicity for nil International
agreements; faithful observnnco of
treaties; opposition to territorial ag
grandizement, suppression of move
ments to overthrow governments bj
force; clarification of exchange rates
and resumption of International com
merce, with a proviso for suspension
of trade relations with countries main
taining armies organized for aggres
sive purposes; and organization of n
news disseminating bureau to offset
destructive and lullnmmatory propa
ganda. Medal for French Girl.

daughter of Cupt. William Appleby,
Krltlsh representative to tho recent
Interallied Veterans' association con
vention at New Orleans, was decorated

t devotion In tho hour of her father's
greatest allllctlon." She has been his
