There were no bids. The Walsh-I ienly law of last June, requiring industries furnish ing materials and supplies to conform to prescribed rates of pay nni' hours of work, is blamed for the lack of bids. Copper companies, however, might remember that the navy can, if necessary, take steps to get ,ts own copper even if it invulv. what business men decry, competition with private industry.

"Of course you are going to be a lot of trouble to me," he had gone on, half laughing, half serious. "My mother( who is a very sweet, self sacrificing person, with a calculating streak in her, has set her heart on her only son's marriage to some likely gal with a mint of money. "She needs it to pay the taxes on the old homestead, and she needs a new fur coat, and diamond bracelets and lord only knows what else.
