Whenever a court dissolve a
trust the trust seems to call a
meeting to determine what to do
with the resulting surplus.
It is against the law to send
booze by parcel post, as post

Under the Wilson administra

Talking good roads is one thing
and buildintr them is another
thing. Wo bavo a superfluity of
the former and a forlorn dearth
