the McNary Haugen bill provisions
extended over five years.
Washington, D. C Failure of con
gress to pass the second deficiency ap
propriation bill, carrying among other
items one for administering the bonus
law, was discussed by President Cool
idge and Budget Director Lord Mon
day at a White House conference,
after which it was indicated that the
action was not expected to delay ser
iously operation of the compensation
law. . - ',..' ' .
It has been pointed out by officials
that several months must necessarily
elapse before payments under the law
could be started and that meantime
administrative expense -would he the
only necessity. Favorable action on
the bill in December, it was indicated
after Monday's conference, would
meet the situation.
Federal income taxpayers, however,
who made full payments on March 15
will not bo able to get their 25 per
cent, refund allowed by the new rev
enue law until the bill is passed. An
appropriation of more than $lG,ooo,
000 to bo used in making the refunds
was earned in the hill.
The whole situation created by the
failure of the deficiency bill was gone
over at the conference, and afterwards
it. was said that only one provision of
tin' bill would be carried out in full,
an item for $3,500,000 to fight the foot
and mouth disease in California. Direc
tor Lord said. funds for this were avail
able from a surplus in tho agricultural
department, but that other provisions
would have tovwait until December.
There wero no indications whatever
that President Coolidge had any in
tention of calling a special session 61
congress to pass tho bill, which car
ried appropriations of about $108,000,-
000, although Director Lord declared
there was no way of obtaining the
funds otherwise. The reclamation pro
gram carried in the bill was discussed
by the president with Senator Borah.
Senator Borah held it would be pos
sible lor tho secretary of tho Interior
to take care of Bottlers on the reclama

national sentiment against the new

States carried their campaign into

breaking up a dance at the imperial
A band of 30 ronln, or political
ruffians, raided the dance, and by In
sulting and profane speeches and ac
tions created such a disturbance that
a free Tor all fight was averted only by
interference of some of tho calmer
Japanese guests, who persuaded the
int rod OCT to leave.
Tho ronln took possession of the
dance floor and made a number of
bitter anil profane anti-American
speeches, which they punctuated by
dances with swords ,irawn. Two
American women fainted.
It was learned from authoritative
Japanese sources friendly to America
that tills demonstration was only part
of a larger affair which has been plan
ned with the iutentlon of evicting all
Americans from the country.
Hand bills scattered by (he renin

pollution of all Americans, boycotts
against American merchandise and
motion pictures, exclusion of Amer
icans from Japan, abrogation of all
treaties between the two countries
and "abolition of the evil of dancing,
which is ruining our country."
The handbills bore tho signature
"Grant Forward association."
I'll to tonight, the American com
munity here had not directly felt the
effects of the enactment in the I'nlted

reason the demonstration made a pro
found impression, which also was
manifested in official circles. The

Boards When President
Exerts Veto Power
Washington, D. C. Congress ended
its six months session Saturday night
in an atmosphere of controversy and
turmoil characteristic of the bitter dis
sension which has marked its proceed
ings from the start.
Western senators and representa
tives in the final hours o the ses
sion fought and lost a desperate fight
for legislation to relieve the farmer
and to reform the reclamation policy
of tho government.
Many other measures, including the
bill authorizing construction of eight
new cruisers and modernization ol
battleships and tho deficiency appro
priation bill carrying funds to begin
operation of the bonus law and for
many other purposes, failed in the
final crush of legislation when tho ses
sion ended automatically at 7 P. M.
Not only did the deficiency hill go
down in defeat in the race against
time, but a special resolution adopt
ed in the last five minutes by the
house to make the bonus appropriation
availablo regardless, was lost in the
senate. Republican leaders declared
that only a special session of congress
could provide the necessary fund3 for
the initial costs of the compensation
The deficiency bill itself was block
ed at tho last minute by Senator Pitt
man, democrat, Nevada, because the
omission of a reclamation appropria
tion proposed by him, and action on
the emergency bonus resolution was
prevented by objections by Senators
Borah, republican, Idaho, and Ling,
Tho postal salaries increase bill,
passed by both senate and house by
almost unanimous votes, also went by
the board when Presidnet Coolidge
vetoed it on the ground that it was
"extravagant." No effort to call it
up for re-passago was made in the
short time remaining.
A renewal of tho Teapot Dome de
bate In the senate, growing out of a
futile erfort by Senator Walsh of Men
tana to obtain approval of tho ma
jority report of the oil committee, tied
up business at that end of tho capitol
most of the afternoon.
The house cleaned up many minor
bills, but spent most of tho day iiuar
rellng over the reclamation legisla
tion, which had beon attached by the
senato to tho deficiency hill. The
principal features of the administra
tion's reclamation plan finally were
accepted, but other changes wero made
to which tho senato would not agree.

COURTSHIP is all promises mar
riage is mostly com promises.
A man enjoys kissing some girls a
lot of the time, and a lot of girls some
of the time ; but what appals him
about marriage is the project of
kissing just one girl ALL of the time
and having to pretend to enjoy It.
Marriage Is the Great Adventure,
for most of us; and t lie only monoto
nous thing about It, dear heart, is the
monotony of constant surprises.
Sometimes, a woman wonders if, af
ter all, little George Washington's
admission that he cut down the tree
wasn't like the average man's admis
sion of his sins, more of a boast than
The clrl whose frock Is a little too
low, whose skirts are a trifle loo high.
whose litis are a bit too red, and
whose slang Is a shade too strong,
might relied that even the Lorelei
couldn't have charmed men, if she had
sung too loud.
A woman's love can survive the dis
covery that a man bus robbed a hank
or kissed another woman, but not the
discovery that he uses a toothpick.
A man's love can survive the dis
covery that a woman has cheated at
cards or flirted with another man
but not the discovery that she wears
Love can survive a quarrel or a mur
der but not an onion.

IT WAS with the greatest interest to
know her son's friends that John's
mother boarded the train to pay her
first visit to him si.ice lie had been at
college. The name that she had come
to know best from John's letters was
Henry Steele. Henry Steele was the
great man of that little world. John
Invited all bis cronies to . party hi his
room to meet her the afternoon of her
arrival. When things were at their
height she found herself talking to a
pleasant, quiet-mannered fellow, whose
name she had not caught. He began
by closing a draughty window at her
back, and soon she realized that he
was centering the conversation on
John and John's achievements. Of
course those were the fifteen minutes
that made the afternoon a pleasant
occasion to her.
Presently John Interrupted them, ex
citedly. "Here's that new math lnt
structor flunking all of us la mid
year's, Henry!" So this was Henry
Steele ! She wondered how he would
manage the emergency.
"Then he's more of a man that I
suspected him of being," came hack
from Henry Steele, quick as a Bash,
"By Jehosaphat, John here we are,
we few fellows, holding most of the
offices in the class, and this new man,
just out of college himself, has the
nerve to dish us all. Get his point of
view see the risk of unpopularity he's
"Young man," John's mother nsked,
"do you always consider the other
person's point of view?"
"Yes," he answered, seriously, "as I
figure It out, the other person's point
of view Is half of any situation."
Years passed and, on the death of
his father, Hivy Steele became head
of a great manufacturing concern. Be
fore long It became evident that the
Henry Steele plants were better off
than their competitors. Once Henry
took John over the biggest of his fac
tories, explaining the system to him.
Everywhere they were greeted with
pleasant words and genuine respect.
Then Henry left John with his fore
man for a few minutes In the office.
John spoke of the spirit of the plant.
"Oh," said the foreman, "that's Mr.
Steele. Whenever any mnn In this
shop has had to do with the boss he's
come nway feeling that he's had a
hearing. Mr. Steele always considers
the other fellow's point of view."
