Here it is: In 1917 Congress passed a bil limiting the government to S45.000.- 000.000 debt. That is almost, all used up. So this year Congress extended that by four billion. But with strings. There is about a billion or nearly a billion margin inside The old debt limit, not yet reached, and with the new four-billion gram STUDDED GROUND GRIP TIRE ir act ion .

A gram of another five billion will about cover the government's needs for a year. But the treasury asked 20 billion. Wall Street—or at least some traders— immediately decided that the government was getting ready for further war moves on an immense scale. They could see billions flowing out into business and being turned into purchasing power in the hands of the people. There was therefore a rush of buyers of stocks.

But the trouble is that everybody uses the word in a different A large element in Wall Street, therefore, is betting on this country getting deeper into the Euro- pean-war—withoht an actual declaration.
