of the convention. As an orator she was
In competition with some very distin-
guished personages; but she ' ucquitted
herself in a manner which was greeted
with much applause and many warm con-
gratulations. No business was transacted during the
day and the' anticipated scrap over the
route to be selected for the Bankhead
national road did not develop1 but it will
be precipitated Wednesday. In a way
Senator Bankhead indicated that the
route baa been practically settled but he
did not give the location further than to
ay that the various counties along the
route from ' Washington D. O to El
I'aso having now been chosen it lies
'with . the convention to say what the
route shall be - between El I'aso and
either Sag Diego or Los Angeles. '
Oklahoma.! Not Satisfied.
Tbe Oklahoma crowd did not subscribe
to. the proposition that tbe route has
been laid out all the way to El Paso and
they are using their persuasion among
the delegates who are members of the
National Highway association In an ef-
fort to secure Oklahoma a. much longer
section of the road than is bow assign-
ed that State. 1 -
. Governor O. A. Larazolo of New Mex-
ico aroused great enthusiasm when he
espoused tbe league of nations and he
devoted several minutes to. discussion of
the' matter. Inasmuch as he is a repub-
lican many of the delegates were sur-
prised but possibly were even more ap-
reciative or. his encomium ol l resident

struction of highways; and. whereas this
is one of the evidences of the progressive

Goveraor Brough Presides.
Governor Brough of Arkansas -presided
over the deliberations Tuesdny be-
ing first Tic president of .the associa-
tion. And when he entered the hall he
was greeted with cries of "Hurrah for
Arkansas" for he has. made a distinctly
favorable impression upon the delegates
from every State; and more specially
those from Texas. . He introduced Sen-
ator Bankhead of 1 Alabama who gave
some account of the things which led up
to the introduction of the Bankhead bill
making appropriation for federal aid in
the construction of State highways. A
distinct change in the policy of the fed-
eral government. . ' . ' :
Governor Laxarolo of New Mexico was
introduced by Governor Brough who
fom now the governor has asked of his
legislature a special. tar of 1 1-5 mills
for roads; and when the legislature re-
fused within three dava mf adinurnment.
to grant this Lazarolo had arisen from
his sick bed and assembled at Santa Fe
hundreds of - advocates of good - roads:

3000000 bond proposition as a means
toward accomplishing the civilisation of

J.rs. Cunningham told tbe delegates
Mat the women were reallv not-askins
r anything which the men had not
'readv asked for and obtained. .She
ted from Genesis that the Lord efeated
an and found he wasn't much without
imnn; that the men of Boston had pro-
ved against taxation without reprs
ntatiou; and that was all the women
v ere doing for they paid their taxes

rued should have a voice in tbe govern-

"Most clever." was the comment of the
governor of Arkansas to the governor of

Mr Cunningham had presented her case
well and the members of the association
gave further testimony in the. applause.

At the afternoon session Hon. George
W. Norria chairman of tbe farm loan
commission told why the directors of the
12 Farm Loau Banks scattered over the
United States always take' into ceusid-
eration in making loans the condition ef
the roads leading to the farms of the ap-
plicants if tbe roads art' bad. the farmer
is not in position to repay tne loan; ne
is burdened in such manner as to. handi-
cap him; and as business men. the direc-
tors of the farm bonks must give heed
to the requirement of tbe loan..: As a
matter of fact the managers of the Farm
Loan Banks are endeavoring: to stop the
drift from the farm to the citv. for which
two things are responsible: the conviction
of the young men that farming is not so
profitable as are the professions and en-
terprises of tbe city; and the discontent
of the women who find that they have no
social life and that their children are de-
nied educational facilities. When good
roads are constructed and maintained
and he laid great emphasis upon this
latter provision the-men find there is a
profit in fanning and the women find
they can build a social life and that they
can have schools and churches brought
close to hand by means of the cheap auto-
mobiles. A. G." Bachelder. executive chairman
of the American Automobile association;
It. Harris the commissioner of agricul-
ture of South Carolina: and P. T. Downs
of Temple also spoke.
At a caucus of the Texas delegates
Curtis Hancock of Pallas and Smith of
Mineral Wells were decided upon as di-
rectors for the State of tbe Bankhead association.

PRESENT SYSTEM OF
Commandar of Rainbow Di-

for Radical Changes
Associated Press Report. '
WASHINGTON April 15. The pres-
ent system of military justicenecds no
radical alteration in the opinion of Major
General Charles T. Menoher. commander
of the fd ( Rainbow) division through-
out its active service during the war. .
Appearing Tuesday before the com-
mittee of the American Bar association
which Is- conducting an inquiry General
Mencher said that with some elaboration
of regulations to make the system more
easily understandable to officers serving
only for war emergency be speaking
from experience saw no necessity of
changing court martial practice and pro-
"I do not recall." he said "that In this
controversy it bas ever been claimed that
any Innocent man was found guiltyv Mtn
regard to the length of sentences how-
ever it is another matter-
"We always' felt that adjustment of
sentences would be made after the war;
that final adjustment so that every man
got the same deal was in the bands of
higher authorities. .
General Menoher was asked what ob-
jection he saw to creating a system of
enlisted juries to try cases of enlisted
men. -. - i
"I believe It would work" he said add-
ing that be bad never heard the sugges-
tion before and waa not preapred to pre-
sent a studied reply.
"I have great confidence in the enlisted
man. But I. should not want to see any
bolsheviki ideas get into the minds of the
enlisted men. We have some evidence
now in Russia of what happens in that
The officer also approved a suggestion
that offenses of a common law character
might be referred to the federal courts
except in actual war tones but was posi-
tive mat no such transfer or strictly
military cases should be made. .The
army would be glad to get rid of all trials
for anything but military offenses be
So far as .the existing military jus-
tice system goes. General Menoher said
there is po escape from the personal ele-
ment among the officers applying it. It
is so bound up with the question of gen-
eral discipline he added there are no
means of divorcing authority over courts
mnrtials from the functions of military
General Menoher told of bis experi-
ence in sending cases back to the courts
frfr reconsideration. It wag the rule in
these circumstances not the exception
he said for the courts to adhere to their
original findings and sentences.
Colonel Charles D. Herron who com-
manded the 313th field artillery and later
was chief of staff of the 78th division
also told the committee that the present
military system was adequate but that
its success deponded upon the intelli-
gence of the officers. Courts martial he
said were much like whippings for chil-
dren; at times they might be necessary
but often they "reflected upon the intel-
ligence and Ingenuity of the parent"
