President Wilson says he'll be

that damn is not swearing.

Smart men in America's world
of science and religion are again
engaged in heated controversy as
to whether men are descendents
from apes Some men are, but
there is no use hurting the apes'
feeling by referring to the matter
so durned often.
An example of a prize winning
absent-minded bridal couple is re
ported from Switzerland. A coupls
who had arranged for their
marriage by the civil and religion
authorities failed to appear at the
appointed hour having, as thev de

scientific investigarors declare that
