President Iioosc-volt authorized this
statement. The evidence accumulates
that the administration has completed
its trust busting campaign and is now
intent on propitiating the trusts and
corporations so that their contribu

campaigns. Perhaps later, when the
call for campaign funds Is urgent,
those trusts that have not "come
down" may be threatened with "ac

good sized checks are forthcoming.

and he filled it for $ltm, saying that he

"Love,'' said the colonel, feeling his
chin thoughtfully with lus only hand,
