'Mrs. Gann Wins Battle
Session Begins Monday
Dawes Highly Honored
-By CARL GREGORY
*-rT''JIE League of Nations, the
A World Court, the maintain
ing of a big navy, the conduct of
a. war in Nicaragua, are all impor
tant, and may effect the peace of
the civilized world, but they sink
into insignificance when compared
with the great question of where our
vice-president’s sister shall sit at
the dinner table,” believes Senator
Norris of Nebraska who urges im
.mo Hate decision of the big problem
of Mrs. Dolly Curtis Gann’s reputed
position. -‘Not only is society in
our •country suffering in suspense,
but the question seriously affects
our international rc’ations, ” says
Senator Norris and he urges imme
diate action on relegation of the
dik-muia to the World Court to pre
serve world peace.
Chief Two Guns White Calf of
Glacier Parle, Montana, in contribut
ing to widespread opinion on the
Ci nation offered a logical solution,
He said: “Thcso whiter squaws make
much thunder over nothing. One is
tVr-l and wants to bo second. Tel’
them all to go into the wigwam, sit
in a circle, then no first, no last,
thunder dies and the braves can
Latest dispatches say that "Mrs.
Gann, sister and official hostess of
Vice-president, Curtis; has become
the temporary victor in the battle
fur her social status in Washington.
In other words she will sit in a
< i..picuous position at official cere
monious diplomatic, functions which
would normally be given to the
wife of the vice-president.
ifO0X&EE36MEN, with tlic socia1
affairs of Mrs. Gann cleared
way and nothing more than farm
relief and tariff revision to ■worry
.''bon', should bo aide to assemble
i a Monday, April id, in special sos
Bwa witli a dear and unbeiuddled
brain. Major among their means of
entertainment wi:l be discussion of
farm relief and tariff revision.
Other things that are crying at
tin1 doors ’of the two houses for
consideration are: Repeal of the Na
tional Origins quota system of im
migration; reapportionment of the
House of Representatives; develop
ment of inland waterways as a part
of the Hoover farm relief program.
Without doubt, interesting develop
ments will be forthcoming from
Washington in the next few days.
CHIARLES G. Dawes ami his over
•4 size pipe (or underslung smoke
stack), a possible factor in gaining
him the official title of General
“We” Charles G. Dawes, has again
been honored. He will now serve
in tl>e official capacity of United
[States ambassador to Great Britain,
one of the very highest of portfolio
positions at Hoover’s disposal. His
confirmation by the British is cer
tain in view of press comments they
have made about him, and it is only
to bo hoped that the' General can
keep his regular poise awl ability
to think logically on so important
a mission. He has a few matters
of importance to clear up in Santo
Domingo relating to financial re
organization, and then—1‘'Ilello!
Proposals do wonderful things
and are always necessary to the
real thing! Now, Senator Fess, Rep-j
ubliean, Ohio, proposes—the adop- i
tion of a constitutional amendment i

United States ex-officio senators at!
large. Sounds feasible at first \
thought. “It is undignified for our:
ox-presidents to have to get out aud
look for a means to earn a living,”!
SciiaUr Foss said. “Alsu it is a j
shame not to make use of their ex
traordinary expedience in national
affairs.” Or. second thought, when,
he proposes to give them a salary j
of $25,000—then, one begins to won- j
dor. It is hyiiman nature!

varied degrees of attention
throughout the United ’ States and
Canada for the last month. 0..
March 4 President Hoover annojiuc- j
od his intentions to investigate pre-1
veiling tendencies of disregard for j
the Eighteenth amendment. Ap- :
proxim; ten mm month later a series j
of dramatic and tragic events seem
to make such an investigation even ;
more imperative. The wife of an/
alleged liquor-seller was killed by
a deputy sheriff in Aurora, Illinois.
A rum - running schooner, “I'm
Alone,’’ was sunk two-hundred miles
off the Atlantic coast by a coast
guard cutter. Newspapers support
ing the Jones law and stricter en
forcement of prohibition siozc upon
sueli^ cv(«uts as addenda to their ar
•gnmeuts for law enforcement.
On the other hand many states
are seriously considering ameliora
tion of prohibition laws., Illinois
and Missouri are now proposing
measures for referenda on the wet
dry question. New York, Nevada,
Montana and Maryland are without
state enforcement acts, all but
Maryland having repealed them.
Wisconsin is making a move to join
the group of non conformists and
Connecticut and Rhode Island have
never ratified the Eighteenth amend
Nova Scotia is becoming rebel

promises to provide work for 600,- ,
100 of England’s 1.400,000 unem
ployed, if the Liberals win at the j
'•dining election. Unemployment in;
England seems to be the clue to j
the riddle of the polls, and the man
who advances the best positive plan ,
if remedy will win.
On the other hand the, United j
States has approximately 3,000,0001
and Germany 3,000,000 jobless. Yet'
how many of the leading politi-j
cians in the United States and Ger
many consider the situation' really
serious? Perhaps the Britisher has
to be more considerate of his fellow :
men than we do!
In England, in about two months, '
the election will probably be won;
and lost on the unemployment plat- ■
form. Lloyd George proposes an in- '
tensive campaign of road and bridge]
building. Also lie would build many!
dwellings, telephone and electrical
developments, and drainage and I
transportation improvements in the!
London area. He has ideas about I
land reclamation, afforestation, can-1
al building, and land settlement. A!
noble inarch he has thus stolen on ■
his Conservative and Liberal rivals!
by facing the unemployment issue
squarely and by giving definite
cures instead of general promises. !
Perhaps he is trying to introduce
business methods of running the
government and winning votes.
