"The peace council I would form would pool the foreign offices and diplomatic services of its constituents. It would also be a permanent disarmament committee. It would pool the military, naval and air establishments of the federated nations into one international force and proceed to reduce that force to the dimension of a world police. It would be an immense task but not so much greater than the scrapping tfc.t fwnrrert after the war. It would be done progressively and at the end ot my twenty years ui Dower the world would be free to restore the arms if it wanted to and put its war organizations together again. Abolishment of Traffic. "You can not abolish war unless you abolish the cunning war of financial tricks and tariffs. I would have a body for reorganization of our financial and conomic life on a world scale. It Is what we are feeling our way toward today, very timidly. My world economic council wouia maice a twenty-year plan for reorganization f nmrfnrtinn and distribution. It would not abolish all tariff walls at once, but it would set about reducing hm mthni1lrnllv. orzantzing trans port, assigning types of production and manufacture to the. most favor ably situated regions, shirting wor-ers, irrigating deserts and restoring wasted forests.

"We should make a new map of the world on which we would have no national lines but rather would have copper districts and coal dis tricts, corn districts, pasture lands, forest belts and cotton lands. We should study the mountains and waterways to improve transports ; we should have a map of economic convenience, which is absolutely essential to abolition of war.

Godard, general secretary of the In-dianapolia Y. M. C. A., said. "He has been one of my associates for eight years. He came to me as a young man, an undergraduate of his college, and performed service in the boys department.

The War Department has decided to remove the bodies of 1,616 Confederate soldiers and twenty-two Confederate civilians from Greenlawn cemetery to Crown Hill cemetery. This decision follows a recent visit of Col. Laubach of the quartermaster general's office to Indianapolis when the matter was considered from all angles. The department haj had the step under consideration for some months and its final decision is announced in a letter just received by Representative Louis Ludlow from Maj. Gen. John L. DeWltt, the quar termaster general ot tne ayny. Letter to Ludlow. In this letter the quartermaster general says: . "With reference to our MeviOUi tha auhlect of re moving the remanls of Confederate soldiers from the ureeniawn ceme-t,n Pni T.onhnrh rtt mv office re turned this date and has made a re port to me. "As a result of this investigation r hiva Hirarteri that the remains be moved from the Greenlawn cemetery to a suitable plot wnicn nas oecn selected at the Crown Hill cemetery.

At the Crown Hill cemetery the remains will receive the same perpetual care as Is given to the many thousands of soldier remains now Interred at that place. "An allotment ot tunas nas Deen made, and the reinterment will be nmrrinA nn a a ranidlv as Possible. There will be suitable ceremonies at the time the remains are moved to Crown Hill cemetery, the troops for the occasion to be furnished from Fort Benjamin Harrison." While the details or tne ceremony have not been arranged, it is as-mmmA that in addition to the customary military honors there will be an address by some nationally known person. RivmnnH V. Siebart.

That secured I do not think mankind need fear over-population. - Common Sense for Dictator. "It seems to me that there is no necessity for a world parliament, or world president, or a king or assembly. Why not a dictatorship, not of a man, but of informed and educated common sense? You don't let politicians and rulers run the engineering enterprises of mankind. Why should professional squabblers mess about in world economic UteT There would be no need to abolish existing governments. I would merely deprive them of power to make war and relieve them of financial and economic control and educational systems." SPANIARDS CALL STRIKE. SALAMANCA, Spain, Sept. 28.
