weak too," says Mrs. Silvie Estes, of Jennings, Okla.
"Cardui did me just lots of good so much that I gave
it to my daughter. She complained of a soreness in her
sides and back. She took three bottles of Cardui and
her condition was much better.
"We have lived here, near Jennings, for 26 years, and
now we have our own home in town. I have had to
work pretty hard, as this country wasn't built up, and it
made it hard on us.
"I WISH I could tell weak women of Cardui the
medicine that helped give me the strength to go on and
do my work." This card fulfils her wish.

Resolution Is Adopted By Veterans'
Executives Urging Revenue From

Means to Raise Revenue to Get

Cincinnati, 0. A direct messngf

was presented by 'Colonel C. It
Forbes, Director of the Areterans' Bu
reau at Washington, before a joint
conference of national and depart
ment executives of the Veterans ol
Foreign Wars at the Hotel Gibson.
Inasmuch as Colonel Forbes's an
, nouncement followed a long-distance
telephone conversation lie had witi
the President earlier in the day, those
present at the conference gained ir
impression that the approval of ;'
sales tax plan of financing the bona
had its inspiration at the White
Houe. Tliis impression was conijrni
ed by Colonel Forbes after the meet
ing.'
"You may say that it is the Presi
dent's view that u sales tax would be
a suitable method of financing tin
burden," Colonel Forties said. "That
method f financing also has the ap
proval of myself as the director of the
Veterans' Bureau."
The President recently told Con
gress that it is useless to seek Ills
approval of a bonus bill which does not
provide means of financing payment
In a message to Congress several
month ago the President suggested
a sales tax as among the method':.
Immediately following Colonel
Forties's address and a discii-ssli-n
whicli showed strong approval of a
sales rax plan, Hie executives unani
mously adopted a resolution indors

empted, as a means of raising the

estimated at the last session of Con

tions committee in reporting the $293,

of aircraft to be Included. The bill
provides for an enlisted personnel of
86,000.
Naval Competition Renewed.

cruisers and submarine programs were
planned abroad, adding:
"In other words, competition is on
again in the single direction to which
the unratified Washington naval treaty
does not extend, and if it be allowed

strained to launch a new program to
keep us at least abreast of any of the
other powers."
