Jackson.--Dr. R. B. Gunter, corye. I spending secretary of the Baptist con- vention board of Mississippi, with headquarters at Jackson, has issued the following appeal to the pastors and churches in this state in refer- rence to the collection of funds on the $75,000,009 campc-ig: I "As we approach the close of our state convention year, which ends Oct. 31, I feel it my duty to rennd the pastors and churches of the se. rlous situation that now confronts us along every llne of our great king- dos work. Witch less than 30 days remaining in which to collect funds, we are face to face with the fact that only $379,807.70 have been re- ceived up to this date, leaving $320,- 192.30 yet to be paid by our churches, if we reach our quota for the fiscal year of $700,000. "The home and foreign mission boards are both very much in debt 1 and all other phases of our work are 1 in great need of funds. ! "In some sections of our state the t crops have been very much below normal and it wilt mean that our poe- j ple must make a real sarifice dur- ing the next few weeks if we would save the Lord's work from embar- rassment. 'Let me urge every pastor and church to organize thoroughly for gathering all the cash possible and sending it to my office before the books close Oct. 31." f INVITING NEW SETTLERS. HazlehJJrst Citizens Form Committees to Forward Work. Hazlehurst.--A mass meeting was held recently at the courthouse with 200 men present to discuss means of encouraging newcomers for Copiah County to raise vegetables on the idle lands of the county. J. S. Sexton was made chairman of the meeting, and after many talks on the subject of I farming and getting new farmers for the idle lands the chairman was asked to ppotnt a committee known as the directing committee to start the or- ganization to working. The directing committee is composed of business men of Hazlehurst as follows: R.L. Covington. W. B. Alford, J. S. Wise, L. A. Kemp, C. A. Roper, Andy Green, E. C. Garland. Hal Ellis. H. S. Fugae tnd H. J. Vilson. This committee will appoint other subcommittees such as finance committee, publicity committee and entertaining commit tees. When a newcomer arrives in Hazlehurst he will be taken charge of the proper committee and taken about to look over the lands of the county. Two lists of land will be made. one of lands for sale and one llst of lands for rent. Experts will be furnished every new family to come to show him how to grow and market truck products. It is estimated that l Copiah can comfortably furnish lands for 3,000 families, and farms o good rich lands can be sold or rented to those wishing to come here. Financial assistance will be given the newcem- ers that need help. Over $2,000 was raised at the meeting for advertising purposes, and double that amount will be raised by the committees to be ap- pcdnted by the directing committee during the next two weeks.

COMMUNIST IS THROWN OUT Th Labor President' Flays Plotterl Agairmt Gevernmont and Labor Movement" and Says They Must Stay Outside Ranks. :Portland, Ore.-Samuel ompers, re-elected unanimously as pre:ident of the American Federation of Labor just,before adjournment of tle forty- third annual convention here, de, clared in his closing address that the gathering had given n6tce that a cevage had een mde between thoe loyal to organized labor and those, who boring from within, had sough to stab the labor movement in the back. "The results of this convention," he said, "will make f(rr solidarity in the ranks of labor." The convention came to an excit- ing close in a sharp contest for the next convention in which El Paso, Tax., won over Detroit, Mich., 14,5,88 to 12,884. Officers of the federation were re- tanned. President GomTers, in reviewing the convention's work, referred to the expulsion df William F. Dunne, dele- gate from But{e, Meal "This is a convention of organized labor," he said, "and any nmn who is hostile to labor has no right in. this convenLiom I feel that the action taken has clari- fied the atmosphere. I think we have been entirely too lenient towards those who have been boring from wit121n. "Those men who meet at midnight tn the forest plotting not only against the government, but against the labor movement, can go ahead as they please, but they must do so outside the ranks of organized labor." Gompers declared he had been in- formed that Dunne had not been reg- u:arly elected as a delegate from the Silver Bow Trades and Labor Council of Butte, Mont., to which he was ac- credited, but that he had solicited cre. dentials on the conrltion that he would pay his own expenses to the convention. Taking up charges that the labor movement has lost in number, Presi. dent Gompers declared that if there had been some dropping off in the official number of memoers It was due to the period of unemployment, tc strikes and lockouts which had occur. red in the 16 months since the last convention.

London, Eng.--The session of the Imperial Economic Conference was a triumph for the League of Nations, every dominion representative for- mally demanding that the Britisl commonwealth of nations support the league to the utmost in the future. Lord Curzon opened the session by giving a detailed account of the Ja- mina murders, the Italian occupation of Corfu and the resulting diplomatic crises, and how war was averted, as he asserted, through reference of the dispute to the council of ambassa- dors.

Iession. The dominion premiers put  for- ward their own views regarding the league, declaring the league should have been allowed to deal with the Corfu question and demanding the fullest support of Corfu and the re- sulting diplomatic future. "Pusillanimous" was the word used by one dominion premier in re- ferring to the Curzon-Cecil defense of the handling of the recent crisis. This defense was based on four con- siderations. First, that league handling might have brought on an Italo-Greek war. Second, that Italian withdrawal, if the league had insisted on interven- tion, might have smashed the league. Third, that the rebuff to Mussolini might have overthrown him and led to a Bolshevik upheaval in Italy. Fourth, that by leaving the situa- tion to the ambassadors.

Whenever the troops appeared the plundering crowds scattered, only to reassemble before another promising store. In few cases did the crowd meet With resistace. Whenever some of the pillagers ptured what they considered a good prize they worked their way through the crowd of spectors and disap- peared.

New York.Half a billion dollars and 50,000,000 tons of coal could be saved every year by electricity users of 11 northeastern states on an in- vestment of $1,200,000.000. Herbert Ioover, secretary of commerce, told a "superpower," conference of public engineers of the 11 states. By developing easily accessible water power, he said, and by linking into e-vast network of distributing cables the existing electricity pro- ducing stations, more power could be developed, more cheaply and with a more even, dependable flow to the users.
