"Young man, keep out of Uncle
Sam's civil service," is Champ
Clark's advice to his brothers in
the Delta Tau Delta college fra
ternity. The Speaker is a member of the
famous Greek letter society, and
was the guest of honor at the an
nual dinner of the George Wash
ington University chapter of the
order at Rauscber's last night.
"Every young man should get
out of Washington as soon as pos
sible and engage in business or po
litical activity somewhere and
somehow. It makes me sick at
heart to go through the great gov
ernment offices in the National
Capital and see the men there, plod
ding along, old and without re
nown, who, if they had not entered
the civil service might be great and
influential men in business or in the
professions. The trouble is with
the atmosphere and the environ
ment of Washington. For .ten years
I have been advocating a plan to
mace the federal District of Colum

"I tried the other day to find out from
the highest authority in Washington on
that subject Just when the Senate ex
pects to get down to work," said the
Speaker. "I failed to get any satisfactory
answer. All I can say is that those of
us in the House are as joung as most
of the Senators a little bit jounger. We
can stay here as long as they can."
It Is a dull day in Washington of late
that does not see Speaker Clark men

"times between dawn and dark Repre

House minority leader. In his address
"You Rather here to-night." said Mr.
Mann, "to do honor to the man who holds
the second office in the United States.
In two ears he may be presented to jou
as the man holding the first office within
the gift of the American people."
Judging from the cheers that greeted
Mr. Mann's remarks, there seemed to be
a great many Democrats on hand.
Doomed for I'renldent.
Representative Irvln S Pepper, of
Iowa, master of ceremonies, introduced
Speaker Clark In a felicitlous speech He
was greeted by deafening applause.
Eerye present arose to give lent to
his enthusiasm The Speaker said that the
man who branded Congress as a corrupt
organization was "an enemy to the re
public" He said the percentage of ras

the percentage among the disciples of

Suddenly, with an expressive gesture,
the Kaiser turned away from the King
and begnn talking to Lord Lonsdale.
King George thereupon deliberately
turned his back upon the Kaiser and
commenced talking to the Duke of Con
