DUBLIN, Feb. 3.—(By U. P.)—A
breakdown in the negotiations be-
tween Sir James Craig, Ulster pre-
mier, and Michael Collins, head of
the Irish provisional government,
which resulted from their attempt to
meet formally on Irish soil, was to-
day regarded as extremely critical.
Instead of peaceful co-operation
between the north and south, eco-
nomic legislative war may result.
The provisional government may'1
take steps to obstruct the work of .
the Ulster parliament which was es- 1
i tabliahed und^r the "better govern- j
ment of Ireland" act.
The mutual recognition established I
by the first meeting of Craig and
Collins will be forgotten.
Sir James Craig, before departing, i
issued a formal statement sayine a j
serious breakdown had occurred and
when Interviewed declared:
"We must face the situation. I am j
going to consult my parliament."

"The New Disciple" by J. Arthur Nelson
is one of the prizes to be given by the
Leader in its February Salesmanship Con-
"The New Disciple" starts with the days
before the war. It tells of the coming of
the Great War, and how while American
boys were giving up their lives for Democ-
racy, 18,000 new millionaires were made
It takes up the "American Plan" and
shows how the plan defeats itself.
"The New Disciple" is a book that should
be read by everybody, workers and business
men. It is as powerful and interesting as
Upton Sinclair's "Jungle." If read by every
American it would mean a great change in
America, politically and industrially.
"The New Disciple," remember, is just
one of the prizes given in the Leader's
Salesmanship Contest for February. Take
part in the contest. Your spare time de-
voted to the Leader will help your cause;
if you only get four annual subscriptions,
you will win one of the 500 prizes; if you
do better, you will run a good chance of
winning one of the big cash prizes.
