LILLARD Vv'ILL SPEAK
TO STUDENTS TONIGHT
(By C. M. Sarchet.)
"Theodore Roosevelt was in my judgment the greatest pacifist the world
has ever known."
This wus the declaration of Governor Henry J. Allen of Kansas, personal
and political friend of the late Col. Roosevelt, In an address Friday after-
noon, Sept. 12, at the Skirvin hotel in Oklahoma City, in launching the cam-
paign in this state to raise $100,000 of the $5,000,000 national fund with which
to provide suitable memorials for the former president. The occasion was
a conference of the county chairmen and state executive committee, named
In Oklahoma to assist the Btate chairman, J. J. McGraw of Ponca City, in
carrying on the Roosevelt Memorial campaign and conducting the drive
during the week of October 20-27. C. A. M' Xeand of Indianapolis, regional
director, was also in attendance and outlined the movement and the cam-
paign methods to be employed.

Governor Robertson gave a brief address at the business session of the , ganization and Lieutenant Colonel
Roosevelt Memorial association upon invitation of J. J. McGraw, the state George Wood, commander in the
chairman of the movement. The governor praised the Americanism and SOuthw8st, addressed county chalr-
loyalty of the former president and Hough Rider and enthusiastically en- | meu fo|. the a(ate
dorsad the plan of raising funds for appropriate memorials.
"I hope it will be my honor and pleasure," the governor said in closing,
"to make the first contribution to this fund that is made In Oklahoma
Tli? governor's statement is regarded as significant of the entirely non-
partisan basis upon which the Roosevelt memorial drive will be made. Oil
the executive committee, which was named by Chairman J. J. McGraw, in
consultation with the national chairman, Col. William Boyce Thompson of
New York, are many prominent Democrats of this state.
Great Free-V/ill Offering.
In opening the business session Chairman McGraw said that It has been
the earnest wish and purpose of those interested in this movement from its
inception to remove absolutely all thought of partisanship from tlie I. lose-
velt Memorial Association. Theodore Roosevelt is removed from the fleld
of partisan politics. His memory is the common heritage of all Americans.
Men and women of all parties have an equal right to do him honor and the
Roosevelt Mf mortal Association will be conducted in a manner to permit all
to exorcise that right wilhout reservation or embarrassment.
America would honor Roosevelt the man in order that his manly qualities
may be fused into the life and spirit of American youth. Courage, energy,
unselfish service, love of country, honor and square dealing, righteousness,
wisdom, fearless fighting—it is to these qualities which one man lias been
able to embody th.t we seek to erect a permanent memorial. All citizens, re-
gardless of party, who believe that the memory of such a man will Inspire
the future generations of America, are earnestly invited to assist by their
energy and their gifts. 1'
It is the unanimous opinion of the National Committee that the necessary
funds for providing the memorial should be provided by a great national free-

Governor Allen's Talk.
Following a noon luncheon, given in honor of the Kansas executive, and
attend" ! by the county chairmen, state committeemen and many newspaper
men Governor Allen was introduced by Chairman McGraw and paid an elo-
quent tribute to Col. Roosevelt, saying that Roosevelt was the greatest paci-
fist because what he did was not for war but to insure peace.
"1 like to think of what he has done in all the peaceful walks of life,
said Governor Allen. "I like to think of him as a pacifist who never allowed
any trifling wilh the privilege of peace. I like to think of him at that
hour when they had brought him word that Germany had established what she
called a peaceful block.- le in Venezuelan waters, and he sent for the German
ambassador and gave him four days to dissolve the peaceful blockade.
"The German ambassador came back the next day and protested. He
said- 'His Imperial Majesty thinks four days are not enough.' And Roosevelt
said' 'You have only three days.' And the next day the ambassador re- ___
turned and protested that three days were not sufficient.' 'But you have only , a sUte , have ,n oklahoma," Mr.

"And one tiling I liked about him was that he was never defeated. He [

them; he never lost confidence in them and he always said, 'We will fight this ;
out another time.'
"Roosevelt was a human man," said Governor Allen. 'His domestic life
was ideal. Why, friends, it was just what the domestic life of every Ameri-
can citizen ought to be. It was as sweet as old-fashioned poetry. And his
respect lor womanhood was just what a man's respect for womanhood ought
to be No man ever heard htm tell a vulgar story. We ail loved him because
we knew that he belonged to the east and the west and the north and the
south and the center of the country. He knew us all and spoke our language
and we referred to him as 'Teddy.' Those who were intimately associated
with him sometimes called him 'Theodore,' but the United States took him
into full fellowship and called him 'Teddy.'
"He had within himself all the strength and all the gentleness, all the attention of the citizens of

Governor Allen said that when he returned from overseas last fall, he
called on Mr Roosevelt, then a patient in the Roosevelt Hospital in New
Vork City and said to him In a jocular way: "Well, Colonel Roosevelt, I am
glad to find upon my return to America that you are becoming rather well
known again throughout the land. I hope you will have a quick recovery to
health There is no telling what the people of this country might ask you
to do if you are in good health, so I hope you will have an early recovery."
Col Roosevelt answered: "Peter Dunne gave me some hope yesterday
along that line. He said, 'Colonel, if those boys of yours keep on they will
put the Roosevelt name on the map.'"
Governor Allen is the state chairman in Kansas for the Roosevelt Me-
morial association, the same as Mr. McGraw in Oklahoma, and says the Kan-
sas campaign is now in full swing, being organized everywhere throughout
the Sunflower state.

Children of the slums hopped swiftly
along, homeward bound from
rands seeking the warmth of tene-

A gutter rat stood in the door-

odor of frying onions and steak
tantalized his nostrils. It was

Women of the street passed him
with a leer. A "down and outer"
was the last thing on earth they
sought. What they wanted was
money for food and warm quarters.
The "rat" could supply neither.
A swinging light in the street
ahead drew his attention. Upon eom-:

"Ha! Ha!" he laughed cynically,
but he entered.
Next morning the "rat" was
no longer a rat. He had been

bathed and given a bed. Hope
burned high in his heart.
Through the offices of his new
friends he was given work. It is
useless to' follow him for, of
