The House used that old 'quick killer method of "striking out the ' enactment clause." Every bill pix'sented to Congress begins with the .phrase "Be it enacted—" When, a motion is made, and passed to strike out "the enactment clause", there isn't any bill left.

Only about a lil'th of the subjects had any symptoms worth mentioning by this method of preparations.

XOW WHAT WE of the Allies are going to set up governments in Germany and Japan. I'm wondering how the Old World will seem when Anglo Saxon crusaders march in. France, I understand, is making big plans for the coming of the Allies.

What do you suppose has happened to the-chateau on the Seine behind, whose high iron gates 1 left a. young daughter one bleak February afternoon in the successful hope that she "learn the language"?
