PROPI E \RE INTERESTED IN PAYMENT OF WAR DKIM ( By Associated Pr< «s> Washington, Jan. 2.—Unusual interest in the ultimate disposition of the ten billion dollar debt owed by the government is evidenced throughout the country, treasury officials announced today. One Killed and 5 Hurt in Waco Auto Wreck Waco, Jan. 2. Leonard Hill was killed, five others injured, two seriously, when a big automobile driven at a high rate of speed by (Jarey Dawson, crashed into a small coupe at Fifth and Washington streets Sunday morning at 2 o’clock. DawsOn was arrested Sunday morning at 11 o’clock and placed in the county jail. According to C. H. Machen, assistant county attorney, who is investigating the affair, charges will be preferred against him today. » The dead—Leonard Hill. 20, 615 North Fourth street, base of skull fractured. The injured—George E. Mill, 18, Notrh Fourth street, fractured hip and internal injuries. Miss lone Vogtsberger, 21, Terrell, seriously bruised. Garey Dawson, 26, 1308 Austin street, injured neck and right leg, rendered unconscious. B. M. Wilson, 1700 Morrpw street, badly bruised. Ralph Kniseley, Twelfth and Columbus streets, slightly bruised. All the occupants of the cars were rushed to the Golgin hospital immediately following the accident. Leonard Hill was found to have a fractured skull and died five hours later without regaining consciousness. According to witnesses of the accident, the coupe, ownec by Ralph Kniseley, in which the Hill brothers were riding, liar, just turned the corner at Fifth street west on Washington. While in the center of the street the car was struck by the big car, ap proaching from the east at a high rate of speed. The car was driven by Garey Dawson and two persons were riding in the rear seat, B. M. Wilson and Miss Vogtsberger. The car is owned by voting Wilson father, D. M. Wilson. The coupe was completely demolished, and was carried a distance of 100 feet. ATI the occupants were thrown, to the pave ment and rendered unconscious by the heavy impact. The body and wheels of the machine were smashed to nieces and tom com ston. While this route would lead to Shreveport, it is not recommended as the best way to go. The roads in the section of Timpson and Garrison are reported bad. East Texas Route Open. The East Texas route via Conroe and Huntsville to Crockett and Palestine is in fair condition, but rough in places. From Crockett, Nacogdoches and Rusk may be made via Alto. In the Palestine sector some rain fell during the week and the roads will be found heavy there, especially to Jacksonville. To make Texarkana Qf Shreveport it is advisable to go from Palestine to Tyler via Frankston, then to Longview, going to Shreveport through Marshall and to Texarkana and points in Arkansas and to Memphis via Pittsburg, Gilmer and Mount Pleas;int. Fort Worth, Dallas and points North, East and West from these two places are made via the King of Trails through Hempstead, Navasota, Bryan, Hearne, Bremond, Marlin, Waco and Hillsboro, going via Cleburne from Hillsboro to make Fort Worth and ia Waxahachie to make Dallas. This route is in very good shnne at tnis time and fair running time can be made. From Hearne take the route via Cameron to Temple for Brownwood and points West; from Bremond go via Kosse and Groesbeck to make Mexia, from which place Dallas may be made via Ennis and Corsicana, though to Dallas this way the roads will nok be found as good as via Hillsboro. The San ntenio route and points West via this highway are made through Rosenberg, oetouring from in the most picturesque of college sports well over a month beyond the normal conclusion of the season at Thanksgiving. To Set Precedent. In arranging this game, local officials have striven to set an annual precedent.

Tex., Jan. 1.—The “Praying Colonels” from the Centre College, who will meet the Texas Aggies here Monday, had a short workout on arri val here yesterday afternoon. The squad is in excellent condition with the exception of George Chinn, the young guard, who is nursing an injury. It is almost certain, however, Chinn will be in Monday’s game.

Sale section this year were W ashington j nf tickets has already gone over 12,and Jefferson and Centre. The for- j qqq and the demand continues, mers’ acceptance of the Pasadena in- j vitation precluded them as a possibility. And little Centre, the team that defeated Harvard 6 to 0, accepted. The surprising ability of the two great stars, McMillin and Roberts, even more than the great record of the team itself, has served to thrust Centre into the limelight. Roberts, who will play left end today, is regarded as one of the greatest football stars of the age, while the field general, McMillin, still ranks as one of the most remarkable of running backs. The unbeaten record of Centre, its powerful offense, carry it in today’s game a heavy favorite. Against it Dana Bible sends the old fighting .Aggie spirit that has done wonders—a spirit sustained by a team of native sons. When the idea of playing the New Year’s game was broached to the Aggie team and left to them they vot- e<f unanimously to play here. They were not only eager to play Centre, but confident that the team could hold the Kentuckians. On the eve of tbe. game the views of the rival coaches [ reflect much of the public opinion on the outcome. —■■■»» Moran Knows Aggies. “While I am confident that the team will mtaintain its unbeaten record.” Charles B. Moran, head coach of Centre, declared last night, “1 look for a hard game. I coached at Texas A. and M. so long that 1 understand better than any outsider can the value of the Aggie spirit. I have never seen an A. and M. team quit—I never heard of one quitting. I brought Centre to Dallas with the information that they will have to fight for every inch o' ground they make at Fair Stadium. The team is in good shape for the game and it expects to win Bo McMillin Married. Fort Worth, Tex., Jan. 1.—Members of Centre College’s football eleven will run interference for Bo McMillin Monday morning at 9 o’clock down the carpet&d aisle of All Saints’ Catholic Church for Alvin Nugent McMillin, not Bo this time, if you please, is marrying in the morning. Mr. McMillin and Miss Maude Marie Miers, his old home town sweetheart, will say their vows before the Very Rev. Robert M. Nolan, pastor of the church. Thad McDonnell of Harrisburg, Pa., a college mate of McMillin at the Danville college, will be best man. McDonnell is not a football player, but the wedding cast that precedes the new year engagement with Texas A. and M. College in the Dallas stadium tomorrow afternoon includes Captain Norris Armstrong of the Centre eleven, James (Red) Roberts, all-American end for 1921, and other stalwarts of the famous football machine. governors T sked to AID PEACE PROGRAM Washington, Jan. 2.—In an effort to prevent public apathy on world peace, after the close of the Washington conference national council limitations of armaments announced today it had written governors of forty-eight states asking the support of educating public sentiment in the coming year for the next step toward permanent peace, and that thirteen affirmative responses had been received. ley through Kendleton is practically j Dana Bible has every confidence in impassable through the swamp at the, the ability of his team. “I have never latter place.

Fick at MeCullooch-Gordon Co. (By Associated Press) Omaha, Neb., Jan. 2.—Civilization cannot exist without law and law is useless unless actively effective Judge Kimbrough Stone, of Kansas City told the Nebraska State Bank Association here today. “The great agency which makes law effective in. a republic is respect tor the law by everyone. This respect can be compelled from such as do not willingly accord it. There now exists, in this country, the need to enforce respect for the law and also enforce the laws. Too many officers and judges do not enforce the laws. Laws are enacted to control existing or apprehended conditions. Unless they are enforced they control nothing. An unenforced law is not only a vain thing, it is a dangerous thing. “There are recent happenings evincing a disrepect for law and defiance of it which urge watchfulness and action. Your sister state of Kansas enacted the so-called Industrial Court Law. I am not now considering the policy of that law. It may be very gootl or very bad. The fact remains, that the legislature of that state enacted it and the highest court of that state sustained it. As such, it should be obeyed by all within that stae. Alexander Howat and his followers, among the miners of Kansas, do not find this law to their liking. It is entirely within their legal rights to test its validity hi the courts. But they are openly advocating, and practicing, disregard and defiance of it. This action is a direct challenge to the will and power of the State of Kansas to enforce its laws. An instance of semi-organized defiance of law occurred a few months ago in Wisconsin, where a settlement, mostly foreign born, forcibly resisted the enforcement of the National prohibition law. Several men were shot before the situation quieted. There are open violations of the lawv everywhere, and officers are ignorant. “All thoughtful Americans should concern themselves with the problems of immigration. There are classes of immigrants we can well do without. They confound license with liberty; they are not willing to accept our institutions; they often seek to substitute their own ideas and ideals of government, by fomenting discontent and advocating defiance of and resistance to existing law. They herd to themselves with no desire to mingle with the American mass. They come foreign and remain foreign. Wherever you find a sore spot there they are sure to be. In Kansas and Wisconsin, were some of this character of immigrants. It is very fine to regard America as the asylum for the oppressed of all lands, but it is about time we transferred some of our solicitude for the oppressed of other lands to the untainted preservation of those ideals and institutions which have protested our own people from oppression, and we need not hesitate to do so because foreign owned ship lines may lose some money thereby. But a more dangerous kind of violation is a subterranean sapping. The most pronounced existing instance of this latter kind is the violations of the prohibiting statues. There can be little doubt that those statutes are not being effectually enforced. It is high time that they were. It is in no sense a question of prohibition or anti-prphibition. The policy of prohibition —whether it be good or be bad—is not involved. Congress has passed laws lor the purpose of executing and making effective the amendment. A man who violates them is a criminal.*’
