just now falls the brunt of the ex

army of men and women in official
fife in Washington. They have al

bassador, his three secretaries, his
naval attaches, his military attache
and his counselor, all wear American

During the few months that the
ambassador's wife was with him she

Japanese embassy at present are sel

As the proper structures wear away,
fibrous tissue takes their place.
When there is an excess of this tissue
