"Hut tho signing of the contracts Is
not the most Important thing." said
he. "The immediate and effective oper

I havo heard made many times lately
that there will be no relief from present

Is absolutely false. Inside of eight
months there will be a tangible show

months thero will be marked Improve

Mr. McCall, who wns the guest of
honor at the twenty-ninth annual ban
