Put 1 ran say this, that among my earliest recollections I remember bow, when a child, I used to get irritated when anybody talked to me In a way I could not understand. I don't think 1 ever got angry ut anything else In my life. 1 can remember going to my little bedroom, alter bearing the neighbors talk of aji evening with my father, and spending no small part of tho night walking up ajid down, and trying to make out the exa;t meaning of some of their, to me, dark saylngis. "I could not sleep, though I often tried to, when I got on such a hunt iifter an idea, until 1 had caught It, and wuen I thought I had got It, 1 was, not satisfied until I hud repeated It over und over, until 1 bad put It In language plain enough as I thought, for HTiy boy I knew to compremend. "This was a kind of a passion with me, and It has since stuck by me, for 1 am never easy now. when 1 am handling a thought, till I have bounded It north, and bounded it south, and bounded It east and west. "1 thought, at first, 1 understood tho meaning of 'demonat.ra Hon' but soon became satisfied that 1 did noL I consulted Webster's dictionary. That told of certain proof, 'proof beyond possibility of doubt' but I could form no idea of what sort of proof that was. At lust I said 'Lincoln, you ran never make a lawyer If you do not understand what' 'demnnst rate' means. And 1 went home and stayed there until I could give any proposition in the six hooks of Kuclld at sight. I then found out what 'demonstrate' means." SLACKS RKCAU LINCOLN. BOSTON, Ma.H.s.. Feb. 12.

PLEA FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH SPOKEN A plea for "the return to the American doctrine of freedom of speech" was made yesterday morning before the soc lology classes of liutler college by the Hev. John Nlven Sayrc, a minister of the Protestant Episcopal church, and representing the Fellowship of Reconciliation of New York.' The Rev. Mr. Say re Is a brother of Francis B. Sayre, who is a son-in-law of Wood row Wilson, and is a former editor of "The World of Tomorrow." "Let the agitators talk as long as they do not commit any overt act," the Kev. Mr. Sayre declared. "If we fry to stifle the agitator or run him out of town, the ideas of that ita-for will not be erased. 'They will be continued in secret and result in conspiracy that may end in revolution as in Russia." The Rev. Mr. Sayre said that this freedom of speech was the doctrine of Thomas. Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. He declared that by throwing an agitator in Jail, he was made a martyr and this condition glorified him in the eyes of his followers. "If there Is any injustice which the agitator brings to light, his talk will bring on h discussion that will lead to the eradication of that Injustice," the Rev. Mr. Sayre continued. "Rut if there is no Injustice, the talk of the agitator can not make one and his ranting will end In nothing. "A democracy is founded upon the rule of the majority and te minority must be good Hisirts and accept the conditions imposed by the majority; but from the minority comes new ideas and these new Ideas are not acceptable at first, bul we know that all progress Is based upon new Ideas that are found to he fundamental, sound and Just. I apt not a red, communist nor bolshevik. All I wish to see Is peace and progress III social ami economic life. These ends must be based iilon Ihf teachings of Jesus Christ." The Rev. Mr. Sayre Is scheduled to speak at chapel exercises at Butler today.

(I'niveisal Service) "I am sorry for the Prince of Wales. You are trotting him all over the world and making, a clown of hhn." These observations by David Kirk-wood, noted socialist firebrand in the House of Commons for Glasgow, were part of an unprecedented attack on the government's policy of using the Prince of Wales as an ambassador on world tours. With Klrkwood's outburst today, the Scottish socialists rallied to the onslaught, creating turbulent scenes In the House of Commons when the government movfd for an extra appropriation of J10.000 for the prince's forthcoming Argentine and South Afrl- i can visits. ! Declaring that he "doubted whether j the royal family Is very dear to the ! laboring people." Klrkwood declared ! he was "not Jealous" of the prince, ': but that "to be perfectly candid, 1 am , sorry for hhn." 1 Invited to Scotland. v. "During his last- visit to Gla-sgow, the prince refused to visit the slum areas," said Klrkwood. "I now invite this commonly called 'young man" who Is over 80, to come to Scotland, and we will show him conditions he will not find In Argentina or amongst the aborigines of Africa.. "Let him come, and we will take him into the mines and workshops and let him see the awful conditions under which the peoplo work who are supposed to be the backbone of this empire." He declared that the prince receives a magnificent salary and ought to pay his own expenses on his trips. George Buchanan, also a member from Glasgow, backedup Klrkwood's position, adding: "No tse for Royalty." "I have no use for royalty at all. I do not think they fulfill any useful function, and I think they are grossly overpaid." Walter Guinness, Conservative, defending his vote for the motion, said that 11 waa a mistaken Idea that the prince is going about seeing the em pire, bu that, instead, be is giving tne empire a chance to see him. The motion waa passed after the Socialists had finished registering their protest. JURY BEING COMPLETED FOR TRIAL OF STOKES CHICAGO, Feb. .

BREACH OF PROMISE SUIT NO WORRY TO DEFENDANT NEW YORK, Feb. 12. (Universal Service) "Ivy St. Clair Is the newest acquaintance, and is obviously seeking publicity at my expense," said H. Gordon Duval, preeldent of the Park Avenue Association today.

According to statements made by the tltian-halred healltv. Mr. Duval asked her tu nmirv him last. December, but subsequently he became cooler In his attitude, and gradually dropped her altogether. "If it Is possible to file suit on such grounds as my acquaintance with Miss St. Clair, then every man who takes a girl fpr a drive, or calls her by her first name Is risking his reputation," Mr. Duva said. "This really can't hurt me." he observed with a smile, "and if she gets a thrill out of it, why. let her have her fun. Even If the suit were droped tomorrow, she would have gotten $."0.n)0 worth of publicity out of it. And I'm sure that what's he wants."
