Mr. Hnnkn said: "We hope to raise

Questioned by Senator Reed, the wit

The league, he said, gets out a monthly

enough to spend $5,000 In each of about
twenty States, and In addition each
State organisation was supposed to get j
Its own money for Its own work. Then
sss no restriction on the sum a State
