Resolutions Providing for Readjust
ment or Nation to Normal Con
ditions Indicate Lively Con
flict Is Coming.
WASHINGTON', D. C., Oct. 5. (Spe
cial.) The first legislative move hav
ing Administration earmarks to prepare
the United States for peace was made
yesterday when Senator Overman of
North Carolina introduced a bill in the
Senate creating a Federal commission
on reconstruction composed of five
members to be appointed by the Presi
dent. The function of the committee
will be to study problems expected to
arise out of the war and to frame a
programme of measures to readjust the
Nation to normal conditions.
The measure promised to precipitate
vigorous opposition on the Republican
eide of the chamber and to bring about
a eharp division along partisan lines.
The Republicans promptly interpreted
the introduction of the bill as an .Ad
ministration move intended as a counter-thrust
at the resolution of Senator
Weeks, Republican, of Massachusetts,
creating a joint Congressional commit
tee on reconstruction.
Weeks Resolution Indorsed.
Senator Weeks resolution, identical
with one introduced by Representative
Madden, of Chicago, in the House, has
been indorsed by the Republican con
ference and is expected to receive the
support of the Republican Senators al
most without exception.
Senator Watson, of Indiana, chair
man of the committee appointed by the
Republican conference to take charge
of the Weeks resolution, declared to
night that under no circumstances
would the Republicans acquiesce in any
proposal for taking the reconstruction
problem out of Congress. These prob
lems, he insisted, must be handled by
legislative and not executive function.
'The Overman bill would take the
reconstruction problems out of Con
gress and turn them over to the ad
ministration," said Senator Watson.
"These problems must be dealt with by
the legislative branch of the Govern
ment. Congress has surrendered many
of its functions during the war, and
it must reassert itself in dealing with
questions after the war. I believe that
one of the things in this country most
in need of reconstruction is Congress
Lively Strnsele Promised.
With the Republicans standing be
nind the Week's resolution to keep re
construction problems in Congress and
the Democrats backing the Overman
bill, an interesting struggle is prom
ised. Senator Watson said he would
call the committee together tomorrow
to study the Week's resolution with a
view to determining whether it would
be necessary to amend it.
Regarding the functions of the pro
posed commission, the bill provides:
"That it shall be the duty of the com
mission to examine into problems and
conditions arising out of the war and
that my arise out of the transition of
the economic, industrial and social life
of the Nation from a state of war to
a state of peace, and with a view to
meeting, as far as possible, such prob
lems and conditions as are actually
forced upon the Government, the com
mission shall report to Congress from
time to time the results of such inves
tigations, with recommendations for
new and additional legislation." . -

veteran's smoking1 advice
If you listen sharply you can generally
learn something from an American sol
dier. For example, "That the Americans
take off their hats to the French but not
to French cigars. There's nothing like a
dependable smoke from the U. S. A."
So think how fortunate you are that
the nearest cigar store will sell you the
dependably fragrant Owl and White Owl
Cigars. Always dependable because their
dependability is guaranteed by a great
store of ever-curing leaf. Always nearly
$2,000,000 worth.
