read without maClng mention of a

as a minority report.

Mr. Ccckran, arising to reply, said
it is a peculiar thing in history that

ill-digested efforts to coerce people in
their daily lives.

say they are not fit for self govern

Secretary Colby and Senator Glass
defended the platform as framed by
the resolutions committee.
In quick and successive votes the
