One is that it was captured by confederates, who amused themselves by using it as a target. There are various knife cuts in the canvas, and a hole in Lincoln's forehead is said to be a bullet hole.

OTIIMAN United 1'rtss Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 12.—(UP) —Brickbats tossed in the air have bet:l known sometimes to conk the throwers on the head. Now go on with my painful story: Rep. William J. Miller of Conn., as talking nbnut too many federal press agents writing too many press releases on too much scarce paper at too great a cost to the taxpayers In cash and to the Washington ciirrcsuondcuts in anguish. I was listening carefully and savin-;, amen. Rep. Miller added that 00 per cent of these pronun- claniKitos never lift print because nobody ^iiuch was interested in them except the authors. "True." I said to myself. And then I had one of my infrequent ideas: I'd investigate the contents of my own wastcbtiskcl and thus bolster Rcji. Miller's charges with the evidence. H-m-m-m-m. It pains me lo say so. but truth is Irnth and about half of the crumpled documents I found in my trash can came from the talented pens Of Congressmen. On the top o! the pile was an essay of high literary quality by Rep. Richard E. Harlcss of Arizona on the heroism o[ John Paul Jones. It was published by the government printing grcssman. Sen. Elbcrt D. Thomas oi Uiah contributed two pages of his mimc- ographct] remarks aneiu the lOOih anniversary of the settlement of .Utah and mentioned the premiere of a motion picture c-illpd "Katn- rod," having to do with fame. This cinema was produce:! by Harry Sherman, who used to Ijt; known as fcing of, the horse oprys; I have no eloubt it is an excellent entertainment as the senator claims. I received from Re.j. clarc Hoffman of Mich., n copy of hi'; regular newsletter to his constHlii'nUs, in which he urged that not. to BO Eel impatient ye>—with the Republicans in congress. They're go- Ing to keep their campaign promises all rliLlu. but It will dike n lilllj. nine, ho said. / Hi')). Francis C.isc of S.

I'ydltiK.s of Md. ; delivered to me. by Ihe same mall a copy of a speech by him in which he said Russo- Amcrican relations gradually are ?U!nK better. Half way down in my wastcbas- kot, along with some handouts from the British embassy, the Royal Egyptian government, the War Department and the Flax and Fiber Publishing Co., I came across a COO-word statement by Ben James E. Murray of Mont. He doubted whether small businessmen will survive much longer, unless they get a brcnk. Sen. Murray scnl also n progress report on the work of his Small Business C'om- mitlee. a book which ran 310 Sen. George Malone of Ncv. denied in typescript that his bill al lowini; landlords lo increase rent aK lf> per eent would force 'em to do so, if lliey already though thoir renls were hiiih enough.
