Congress will soon assemble lo consdrr the stale o ll.c Nnion end to determine what legislation, if any. should be passed for the benefit of the people of the United States. The duty assumed by Congressmen is rarely umlciilond by the voters. The men who compos; the two houses are not supermen. They cannot lay claim to all wisdom and, at best, the most that an individual member can do is to try to do the best possible in the light of the circumstances around him. Inasmuch as it is quite common for disgruntled consliluci ts to blame luckless representatives for many ills, most of which they are entirely unable to relieve, it mi ;ht be a generous thing. just be fore the next session opens, to say .1 few words in praise of the leg islatorg of the United States. Of course, we realize that there arc worthless men elected to high office and that they do not add prestige to the working of democracy. However, by far the majority of those who engage in public service are imbued with a desire to be effective and to make positive. contributions to the welfare of the nation and its citizens. With this in mind, , let's pause a moment in contemplating personal affair and give a greeting to all legislators in Washington, the State; capitals and minor legislative assemblies. Let's hope that they have more wifdom than we think they have, that their labors will bear abundant fruit and that their work will rebound to tbeii own credit and betterment of their constituents. had time tney orove out to u.e together, pacing over every inch of it, sitting on the grass that was already beginning to yellow in the summer sun, planning where the . 1 W L. and knar tn HVfl all He would have gone on. ne .1 A I.... nM ha, acaln annul Forced to campaign from a wheelchair.
