Coolidge Decides on Measure as Whole
-Approval Is Reluctant.
Washington, D. C President Cool
ldge deploring its provision for Jap
anese exclusion, but heartily approv
ing Its main features, Monday signed
the Immigration bill.
Steps were taken immediately by
the department of labor to prepare for
administration of the law, which pro
vides for further restriction of immi
gration after June 30 when the exist
ing quotation law expires and for total
exclusion of Japanese Immigration
afler that date.
The president approved the bill re
luctantly, issuing a statement after
he had affixed his signature in which
ho said he regretted tho impossibility
of severing from tho measure the ex
clusion provision which ho and Secre
tary Hughes had opposed strongly dur
ing tho course' of tho legislation
"There Is scarcely any ground for
disagreement as to the result we want,
hut this method of securing It Is un
necessary und deplorable at this timt

tho exclusion section. "If tho exclu
sion provision stood alone I should
disapprove it without hesitation,

"I must, .thereforo, consider tho bill
as a whole and tho imperative need
of Iho country for legislation of this
general character," ho added. "For
this reason tho bill is approved."
Occasion was taken by tho president
his statement to declare that he
gladly recognized that tho enactment
of the exclusion provision "does not
imply any change In our sentiment of
admiration and cordial friendship for
tho Japanese people, a sentiment
vhlch has had und will continue to
have abundunt manifestation."
Secretary Hughes, who bad opposed
igorously the proposal to exclud
Japanese Immigrants by law, holding
Unit exclusion should bo accomplish
I ny oipiomattc arrangement, con
rred with tho president just before
the bill was approved.

strength to pass It over his veto. Chair

tXTHAT Ben Blower has Is always
vv a Utile bit better- than every
one else has.
Mr. Blower was spending the week
end In the country with a cluh ac
quaintance whose wife Jiad heard of
Mr. Blower but had not met him. Her
husband introduced, that Saturday
night at dinner, a brisk little man In a
black cent that somehow suggested
the out of a robin's tall feathers.
"My husbund says that you made a
very quick run up from town," Mr.
Blower's hostess began.
"Ah, well my motnh, you see," he
exploded with his own rpeolal pro
nunciation of words ending In the let
"Tou have a fast car?"
"New York to Boston In five
houahs," laid he.
"Goodness!" she cried, "that's fast
er than the express trains, Mr. Blow
From thnt the conversation turned
to the Pilgrim tercentenary.

Blower again. "Can tell you all about
tho Pilgrims direct descendant of

"But Trlscllla married John Alden,
history tells us," she questioned,
hurrying to the rescue of the Puritan
"History doesn't know everything,"
aid Mr. Blower haughtily. So It went.
He told hit hostess that be had made
and spent sums equal to any fortune.
"You never hear of my income," he ex
plained, "because I spend It on pur
pose to avoid the Income tax." Ills
children were all of the "genius type,"
bis clothes were made In L'ngland ; hit
friends were only of Ihe beat; and she
was made to feel that he refrained
from telling her his brand of cigar
ettea and politics only because such a
declaration on his part would be used
as advertising and campaign mate
rial. As they parted for the night she
said wearily, "I hope you rest well."
"I always rest well," said he.
And the dragged herself up to bed
thinking that the blower habit might
