FAILS TO PROVIDE FUNDS
Cash Konus Payments i Under Bonus
Law Delayed by Congress."
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,
alter which it was indicated that the
action was not expected to delay ser
iously operation of the compensation
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 be 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 be able to get their 25 per
cent refund allowed by tho new rev
enue law until the bill is passed. An
appropriation of more than $16,000,-
000 to be used in making the refunds
was carried in the bill.
The whole situation created by the
failure of the deficiency bill was gone
over at tho conference, and afterwards
it was said that only one provision of
1 lie 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 wore avail
able, from a surplus in the agricultural
department, but that other provisions
would have to wait until December.
Thero were no indications whatever
that President Coolidgo had any in
tentlon of calling a special session ot
congress to pass the bill, which car
ried appropriation of about $108,000,
000, although Director Lord declared
there was no way of obtaining the
tunda otherwise. The reclamation pro
gram carried in tho bill was discussed
by the president with Senator Borah.
Senator Horali held it would be pos
sible for tho secretary of tho interior

Tokio. Japanese seeking to solidify
national sentiment against the new
law excluding them from the United
States carried their campaign into
tho foreign quarters here Saturday,
breaking up a dance at the Imperial
A band of 30 renin, or political
ruffians, raided the dunce, and by in
sulting and profane speeches and ac
tions created Bitch a disturbance that
a free-for all fight was averted only by
Interference of some of tho calmer
Japanese guests, who persuaded the
intruders lo leave.
The renin took possession of the
dance floor and made a number of
bitter and "profane anti-American
speeches, which they punctuated by
dances with swords drawn. Two
American women fainted.
It was learned from authorilat ivc
Japanese sources friendly to America
that this demonstration was only part
of a larger affair w hich has been plan
Oat with the intention of evicting all
Americans from the country.
Handbills scattered by the renin
baton they departed demanded de
portation of nil Americans, boycotts
against American merchandise and
motion pictures, exclusion of Amer
icans from Japan, abrogation ot all
treaties between the two countries
and "abolition of the ojii of dancing,
which Is ruining our country."
The handbills bore the signature
"Great Forward association."
I'p to tonight, the American com
munity here had not directly felt the
effects of the enactment in the United
Stales of the exclusion law. For that
reason the demonstration made a pro
found impression, which also was
manifested in official circles. The
American charge d'affaires was among
these at the hotel when the dance was
No Interference was tendered the
ronln by the police, who were said
to have been told of the program in
advance. Newspaper photographers,
also forewarned, were stationed in ad
vantageous positions about tho room
where the demonstration took place.

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 of the ses
sion fought and lost a desperate fight
for legislation to relievo the farmer
anfl to reform the reclamation policy
of the government.
Many other measures, including the
bill authorizing construction of eight
new cruisers and modernization 01
battleships and the 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 the ses
sion ended automatically at 7 P. M.
Not only did tho deficiency bill go
down in defeat in the race against
time, but a special resolution adopt
ed in tho last five minutes by the
house to make the bonus appropriation
available regardless, was lost in the
senate. Republican leaders declared
that only a special session of congress
could provide tho necessary funds for
tho initial costs of the compensation
Tho deficiency bill itself was block
ed at the last minute by Senator Pill
Dtan, democrat, Nevada, because the
omission of a reclamation appropria
tion proposed by him, and action 011

prevented by 'objections by Senators
Borah, republican, Idaho, and King,
The postal salaries increaso 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-passage was made in the
short time remaining.
A renewal of tho Teapot Dome de
bate in the senate, growing out of a
futile effort by Senator Walsh of Mon
tana to obtain approval of the ma
jority report of the oil committee, tied
up business at that end of the capitol
most of tho afternoon.
The house cleaned up many minor
bills, mit spent most ot the day quar
reling ovor the reclamation legisla
tion, which had been attached by the
senate to the deficiency bill. The
principal features of tho administra
tion's reclamation plan finally wen
accepted, but other changes were made
to which tho senate 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 protgiect of
kissing Just one girl ALL of the time
and having to pretend to enjoy it.
Marriage Is the Great Adventure,
for most of u ; and the only monoto
nous thing about It, dear heart, Is the
monotony of constunt 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 boust than
The girl whose frock Is a little too
low, whose skirts are a trifle too high,
whose lips are a bit too red, and
whose slang Is a shade too strong,
might reflect that even the Iorelei
couldn't have charmed men, if she had
sung too loud.
A woman's love can survive the dis
covery that a man has 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
derbut not an onion.

IT WAS with the greatest Interest to
know her son's friends that John's
mother boarded the train In pay her
first visit to him si.ice he hud 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 his cronies to : party In his
room to meet her the afternoon of her
arrival. When things were at their
height she found herself talking to a
pleasunt, 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 in
structor flunking all of us in 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 back
from Henry Steele, quick ns 11 flash.
"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 asked,
"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, Henry Steele became head
of a great manufacturing concern. He
fore long It bfcame 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 form
man for a few minutes In the otllce.
John spoke of the spirit of the plant.
"Oh," said the foreman, "that's Mr.
Steele. Whenever any man In this
shop has had to do with the boss he's
come away feeling that he's had a
hearing. Mr. Steele always considers
the other fellow's point of view."
