This was the toast proposed by Presi?

In hla serious moments the President
came out strongly and unequlvocally
for a slngle slx-year term for the
Presldfnt, and urged the admi*aion to

of the Presidentlal Cabinet.
His flrst proposition occaaioned loud

The Ex-Prasidant Joke.
Another change the President ad
vocated that met with hearty response
from his hearers was the placlng in
the clvil servlce of practlcally every
offlcer of the government servlce, and
he hinted broadly that Congress would
not be amiss lf it provlded for ex
Presldents so that they might not
tower the dignlty of the place they
had held when they re-entered pri
vate llfe.
And even this the President, who
was in a gay mood, touched with
humor, for he said that he was not
sure but that the method suggested
by Dr. Osler for elderly men would
not be a good thing for ex-Presld*nts.
The president aaid hla chief regret
was that he had been unable to In
