"We are not merely acting for the persons who are abroad at this time," said Mr. Fitzgerald. "With Ulis great conflict about to be waged anvung most of the powers of Furope, the presence of large numbers of American aliens in the countries engaged in war is a con? stant menace to the peace and policy of this government.

Mann Promises Support. Pscprescntative Mann, the minority l"ader, urging the appropriation, ex? pressed the hope that "the administra? tion will not be too careful nor too cautious about the expenditure of the money, because even if they make mis? takes and spend more money than is afterwards ascertained was necessary, the country will not criticize such ac? tion.
