whole constitution.
Tea, years ago a suggestion that
the Constitution of tho United Stcs
be amended by a general convention
which should have for its purposo
tho making of radical changes In this
Instrument would liavn been received
ns unthinkable. Eren to add a
single amendment to tho Constitu
tion as It stood seemed almost an Im
possibility. In over 100 years thero
bad been only two sets, aa thoy may
bo called, of amendments. One set
of twelve came within twenty years
of Its adoption before It had become
oauotined by age, vrhen many of Its
makers were still allvo and willing
to rccognlte wherein their work was
Imperfect. The second set of three

not open to this sort of attack. It
was impossible to know Just what
the constitution makers bad In mind,

Supreme Court which bad the last
guess thought that they had pro

previous guess of ttie court was the
other way, and that which has be

propoccd simply to clear up the
doubt that tlioso two conflicting opln-
iuno had created.
The discussion of tho Income tax
amendmout as well as the political
unrest and change that have been
noticeable throughout the country
for the past four years have brought
forth many propositions for changes
in our fundamental law. One long
agitated was, by tho now spirit of
the time, forced from tho reluctant
senate and In record time added to

Dear Friend:
Do you know macaroni
makes a nice light din
ner for little boys and
girls to go to bed on.
Grown folks too will
find macaroni good vto
go to bed on, if they
get good macaroni. To
get good macaroni you
must go to a store that
keeps good groceries.
