The Russians say more than 10 additional divisions—from IfiO.OOO to £10,000 men—have moved up from central CVrmany and occupied countries to the eastern front.

"I've tried to do business with everyone in my district, and on the up and up. I've tried to do it with Individuals, not with pressure groups. "I .think the issue is whether you elect a congressman, cithei me or another, who will use his own Rood judgment, as God has given it to him to use, and who will try to represent fully all the people of his district, or whether you will elect one -who will submit to the demands of a few persons in a bock room .who command pressure groups and say 'you've got to do as we say.' "The issue is whether our government will continue to exist as it has in the- past or be dictated by- pressure groups."
