' Answer. The case of Ireland was
not heard at the peace conference
because the peace conference had

v De Valera Replies.
New York, Sept. 17. Eamonn De
Valera, "president of the Irish re
public" says that the objections of
the Irish people to the proposed
league of nations covenant are not
at all those suggested by the ques
tions put to President Wilson by
the San Francisco labor council.
The second question, Mr. De Valera
added, was framed too indefinitely
"to make the reply of any value."
"Nobody has held at any time,"
he said "that under the covenant
the United States would be obliged
to put down a rebellion of the sub
jects of any member of the league.
What has been held is that, under
the covenant, theUnited States
would be obliged to co-operate with
other members of the league in pre
venting any nation that might be
sympathetic with the 'rebels' from
giving them assistance.
The framing of the second ques-
tion is altogether
to make the reply
of any value.

He was on his way on his way to
West Point, to fame, to glory. That
day he left his boyhood behind
him. He became a man a man
with a man's purpose. And he went
out into the world to , take his
man's place in it.
True, he did not go directly to
West Point. There was one step
intervening a military "prep"
school, "The Rocks," on the Hudson
and almost within the shadow of
West Point. But John Pershing's

Pershing Remembers Laclede.
The friendships of his boyhood,
his boyhood friends, though, he has
never forgotten. He writes often to
those old playmates of boyhood,
and nothing gives him such pleasure
is to hear from them. What they
mean to him is best expressed by
quoting the general himself quot
ing him through the medium of a
letter whichi he sent to some of
those old playmates men now ac
knowledging the receipt of a picture
of themselves which they sent to
him in France last winter.

France, Feb. 11, 1918:
"Messrs. E. B. Allen, C. C. Big

My dear friends: It would not be
possible for me to express in words
my appreciation of the friendship of
my boyhood associates in Laclede,
so vividly recalled to mind by the
photographs and the letter just re
ceived bearing your signatures.
"The faith and confidence of my
friends is an inspiration to carry out

own part in the task which the
American people have allotted to the
army in turope.
"To know that our friends from
every section of the country stand
behind us and feel a pride in the
men they have sent forth from
their homes to battle for civilization
will assuredly push us on to the vie
tory that must be ours.
"No ties are stronger than those
of youth, and this personal touch
means much more to me than I can
say. Many thanks, many thanks,
for your thoughtful letter and for
