is in a state of fevprlt-h ex

wi;h a sneer.
Then the husband suddenly has a
sf.iie inriirn?. He ventures the sus
piiois that It might have been left
in the auto. The wife, red-faced
and .rrtfiring from the excitement,
L"fih her lord if he thinks she's lost

to ieave bxr purse In the auto. How
Oil he expect her to buy and pay
for anything if she left Uer purse
down in the street.
Then the floor walker suggests
that it might be well to look in the

might tome along and steal it.
The fiiior walker doesn't happen
to te her husband therefore she
treats him with respect. Then the
poor finh of a husband is asked why
he oVen't go down and look and
not ttiiatl there like a lobster.
Anxious to get away from the
excitement, he goes down the ele

In the purse is tbe other purse. In

THREE PROPOSALS AGREED
UPON FOR SOLDIER'S RELIEF
Centralized Authority and More
Funds or Hospitals Are .
Washington, April 9. Three def
inite recommendations to President
Harding have been agreed upon by
the special commission Investigating
the care and treatment of disabled
service men. Tbey were:
A centrallxed Governmental au
thority to have entire charge of all
Federal agencies having to do with
soldier relief work. .
A decentralised administration of
service, carrying Federal aid as
near as possible to the homes of the
soldiers throughout the country.
A request for additional appro
priations for hospitals, Including a
permanent building programme. . v
Charles O. Dawes of Chicago,
chairman ot tbe commission, said be
would be greatly disappointed If tbe
public investigation was not con
cluded. "We will begin work on tbe re
port In executive session," said be.
Col. F. W. Oalbraith, Jr., national
commander of tbe American Legion,
expressed pleasure at tbe progress
and conclusions which tbe commit
tee had reached. He said the three
most Important decisions conformed
to the American Legion relief pro
gramme and would be of. Immeas
urable value in correcting evils re
sulting from present divided Gov
ernmental authority. . i,
Colonel Cbolmley-Jones, former
bead of the War Risk Bureau said
that tbe work of tbe bureau was
Surgeon General Ireland of tbe
Army told the committee be favored
consolidation of all Governmental
Bureaus for care of soldiers under
one head, saying such action-would
be a great satisfaction to the army
Chairman Dawes interrupted the
controversy to plead for speed.
"It's Just- four years ago," he
shouted, "that war was declared.
For God's sake let's get through.
Let's don't get Jdbbed up with a lot
of extraneous matteK We know an
intolerable condition exists. Every
body does. What we want is speed.
Our Job Is to provide machinery, we
are pot concerned with details'."
Chairman Dawes enforced rigidly
bis rule against extending discus
sions. "We are going to stay right here,
without lunch," be declared, "un
til! this thing Js' finished, then we
are going Into executive session and
prepare a report for the President."
Tbe commission closed Its hear
ing during the afternoon,' but re
mained In session to draft its report
to the President which was expect
