tioning after the holdlays as to
the reasons tor opening up the
140,000 account on October 22
when another account of the na

Lucas previously told the com
mittee he borrowed 24,000 on his
own account to finance the cam
paign against Norris and some
democratic senators. He said he
regarded: Norris as a democrat
and came to the assistance of the
regular republican organisation
in Nebraska when they asked tor
aid to -fight Norris,
Cooper said he had a letter
from Lucas today enclosing a
personal cheek for tS20 to be ap
plied against the note and asking
aa extension of from 20 to SO
days. The letter added Lncas was

iWho gare Mr. Lucas the au

Norris demanded in his state
ment, "Who appointed him to a

Judge of other men's motives?
If the rule which Mr. Lucas
attempted to apply to me were
m ado general, even the great
party leader in the White Bouse

One seta from this picture what

doubtful it any American nurses

the discipline and hospital decor

who knew the rigidity ot military
policies will smile at some of the
Informality .and carelessness pic

a very strong light in this picture.
