after being freed from the prison in
SaltiHo, where the Huerta forces had
thrown him.
He went at once with his story to
his oid college classmate, President
Wilson.
Why 56 you say "roland for
am oliver?"
It was a draw when Roland and his
friend Oliver engaged iri combat on
the little island in the Rhine many
hundred years ago.
These two generals in Charle-;
magne's army were giants of
strength, and to determine which of
the two was the better man they de-
cided to fight it out. The combat
lasted five successive days. For ev
ery blow received by Roland, an
equally heavy blow was landed on
Oliver. There was no decision,
though -thejwhole army acted as ref
erees ,biit ever since then to say a
Roland for an Oliver is equivalent to
saying a blew for a blow, or ah e4ual
contest.
