.\y Dear Mother:
'low do you like my postomlce now?
If my memory serves me right you
have a fondness for water, and believe
me we have miler and miles of the
prettlest blue water and never a thing
else but the blue sky above.
We have been under way for five
days and nights. At. first I was a lit
tle dizzy but nothing to compare with
some others. Ilowever, it only lasted
for one day and I have been enjoying
my trip lots, since.
The fellows are just as jolly as can
be and seem to be as much at home
here as anywhere.
The boys are all starting to supper
or dinner-we get bread, butter and
coffee at eight, another meal at ten
and another at three. All good food
and well cooked. Our lights go off at
I:30 to 5 and then it is some dark
down here. We are partly buried un
der the water so you can imagine
there ore no portholes open.
I will write you ail about the trip
when I can and know more to write.
'hen you receive this, you yill know
I havg landed safely somewhere.

Columbia, .lai. 24.--Tlie senate is
forging right ahead -with its work and
will be ready for the final rush when
the appropriation bill conies over. A
rather unusual Incident consumed
most of the legislative day. Tt was on
the discussion of the resolution of
Senator Epps, of Williamsburg, de
claring the next nine Mondays legal
hiolidays. The resolution was killed
by a vote of 20 to 1 2, not because of
any lack of patriotisi, but. because the
senators thought Ihat. it. would do
more harm than good as offered. The
resolution was piriiarily intndhel to
help and to legalize "heatless Mon
