M. C. A. rooms Thursday afternoon, on "Belgium Before the War and After." This address was of unusual Interest, coming from one who has witnessed the things that have happened In ravaged Belgium. The speaker gave a picture of Belgium In her prosperous days before tho war, of Belgium and her undaunt ed spirit thru tho war, and of stricken Belgium, as she lies today, the victim of the Hun. In speaking of Belgium before the war ho told of tho progress the country had made commercially and said that in comparison to her size her commerce was seven times greater than Italy, twelve times greater than Russia and four times greater than the United States. Politically and re ligiously, she was one of the most free. Germany made her mistake when she took for granted that Belgium is divided because she is made up of Flemish and Walloons, but "Flemish and Wallons are our Christian names and Belgium is our family name," said Mr. Bogaert. Then came the crash when the German horde swept down upon an unsuspecting country and completely devastated all, killing women and children, burning villages and leaving a barren tract in their wake. Tho physically wrecked, the unconquerable l' spirit of Belgium has never quailed, peoand it still lives in her ple who are planning to put their nation again on its feet. If Belgium deprived of all her resources is to live and be a nation again, It is up to the Peace Conference to act and act promptly. Mr. Bogaert spoke very highly of the aid given Belgium by the United States, how In 1914, when the Germans robbed every baker and every butcher shop, leaving the country without any food, Mr. Hoover had food sent to alleviate the famine, and how nobly Brand Whit-locacted toward Belgium in protecting her against the Germans. Mr. Bogaert told harrowing stories of incidents which he witnessed during the battles of Ypres, Newport and La Pame, the memory of which spur him on In the work of the Belgium Relief Fund, In which he is now THE PHOENIX HOTEL LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY r A Metropolitan Hotel Respectfully selicits the patronage ofJUniversity People JOHN SKAIN, Manager for PRICE for price, gradepipe grade, is no better made than a W D C.
