WASHINGTON, I- b. 19.--President Hoover has come b ck from his fishing trip to a situ; tion in Cqngroas which calls for son 1 a ro»il strategy. House leaders aie disturbed over tho delays in the Sc nato on the tariff, trad the Senate, w ille making «lrw but sure prdferos* o t tho tariff bill, is keeping everything elso from beins considered, though 11 several committees controversies are slumbering which can break oui at any time. The Administration, lor -sample is trying to block a Senate in -estimation rf prohibition and apipare itly nas the votes to defeat the plan. Most o'- the drys ire ag-ainst an investigation, though uen like Senatorh Borah, Norris, Broo hart and "WUeeler iro eager lor it. 1 ie Administration regulars have been persuaded by the argument that the i ivestigatiou would really develop into i criticism o'i tho enforcement person uei and methods oE tho Hoover rosin e atid would, thus make, political capil a for the -wets, as well as the anti-He rver candidates In the congressional p irnarios and election. The weakness ot hose who are try- Ing to get an lawst Cation now is that tho Senate has not uad much o£ an opportunity to take up in open session the critlxiiBins of th - enforcement machinery. The hearings before the House committee w re not sufficiently prolonged to develop a puWJc senti- Enewt one way or th- otli*r on the subject of whether tb re ahould be au investigation. Als the existence or the AVickershain Jommiiision glvca «ome o£ the Tegul ira a justification for opposing all ot ler inquiries until a report lias been j lade by the group appointed by tho 1 resident.

Our etudy showe that tb* ratio of rant to sales in tho smaller stores is much higher than the general average but diminishes rapidly ae the size of the store increases. "We find for example, that stores with sales of from $25,000 to $50,000 annually are paying less than two per cent tf gross sales for rent while stores whose annual volume runs lees thaa 35,000 pay more than eight per cent.

Cleansing the Bible Daltimore Sun Tho now English erpurgated Bible, we are informed, omitii St. John's account o£ Jcflue* treatment of tho woman taken iu adultery. Here ie a .strange perversion of virtue by which tho oxjHirgators, in insisting on suppressing all mentiop of certain tranegreseione, have edited all vitality out of tn« message which Jemis intended to bring to the world. The eighth chapter of St. Joba's Goa- pel contains one of tbe most beautiful Btoriea Iu the whole Bible. The. Scribes and Pharisees .brought to Jesus a woman who had been taken in adultery and asked what should be done with her. "This they said, tempting Him, that tbey might have to accuwo Him. But JoBue stooped down, and with Hie finger wrote on tlve ground as though Ho heard them not. "So when they continued asking Him, He lifted up Himeelf, and said unto them: He that ie without sin among you, let him first cast u stone at her. "And again lie etoojied down and wrote on the ground. "And they which hoard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one. by ono, beginning at the eldest, even unto the- last." That shame-laced, exit te ono of the most perfect episodes in all the four Gospels. Ts it too much to conclude that tho reason for leaving out a story which contains Hie gtst of jesur,' Ci-opel of tolerance, forbearance, and forgiveness, is not merely that adultery is jnfenLloned? May not thai chapter particularly irritate tho censors because it given concise- and classic evidence o£ Jewus* way of disposing of censorious and (stony-faced people wrio ore ^o eternally icouloiiK to capt the beam out of Ilieir brothers' cyo without previous optical treat- mom for themselves?
