Your mother-in-law may board free if she wants to.

The plan has the sanction and approval of General Pershing. Further an nouncement regarding the general scope of the movement will be made within a tew days. "I believe that such an organization will be of immense value," he said in New York yeeterday. 'I believe that its advice will be sought by all politi cal parties when it comes to the con struction of a platform involving mili tan*, naval or economic problems. 1 believe also that it will be a practical and effective method of checking the Bolshevism movement which is spread ing throughout Kuropc and which some people view hete with concern. It will also aid materially in finding employment for returned soldier*." I'oiiiicai Knowledge Him. Roosevelt appraised his political status thus : "I have," he said, "cer tain ideas and some ambition---, a war record of which I need not be asham ed, and I have many of my father".?. friends. Those are my assets. My liabilities?if I may express it that way?consist chiefly of an appalling Igno?nce of what haa been going on in this country for the last two years."
