?ERGER DEFIANT
WHEN UNSEATED
Voigt
of Wisconsin Casts
Lone Vote in Favor
Of Socialist.
?-?
Victor It*. Berger. Socialist Congress
m*n-elect from Wisconsin, waa ex
cluded from membership In the House
of Representative*? last night by
vote of 300 to 1.
Berger was specifically charged
with having violated the espionage act
"" by conspiring to interfere with the
operation of the Selective Service act
and other preparation for the war.
He now Is under sentence, of twenty
years tn prison, imposed-' hy the
< Federal court at Chicago.
The one negative vote was cast by
Representative Edward Voigt, Re
publican, of Wisconsin.
If there was any doubt in the minds
of the other members, it was swept
away hy Berger*? own speech.
For more than an hour Berger be
littled ?he government, ridiculed the
.President, severely arraigned Con
gress and the Republican and Demo
cratic parties and assailed the Fed
eral court in which he was convicted.
"I take bade nothing that I said in
my speeches and articles," Berger
shouted iletinntly. "I'ndcr the same
circumstances I would sny and write
it all over again, only 1 would make It
a great deal stronger."
The espionage act was characterized
by Berger .ts an infamous measure
passed at the order of American au
tocracy and declared that it had been
used not to punish spies but to hound
citizens whose opinions differed from
those of the administration.
Arraigning the administration. Ber
ger said it made a specialty of hypo
critical phrases and autocratic, tyran
nical acts. Except for England, he
asserts. America is the only civilized
. ountry which has political prisoners.
"Victor L. Berger is a living ex
ample of the old saying. 'a leopard
cannot change his spot nor the Ethlop
_JM his skin.' " said Representative
?lonahan. Republican, of Wisconsin.
"It would be no more unpatriotic*, and
'un-.Vmeriran to put the ex-Kaiser in
the White House. Hindenburg In
charge of our armies and von Tirpitz
in command of our navies at an hour
when we were at war with Germany
than It would be to vote to give Vic
t% t*. Berjer a seat in the House."

Chiropractic Association
in ?electing a chiropractor you
can ascertain his standing in the
profession and thus know some
thing of his ability by asking him
if he belongs to the "Chiropractic
Association of the District of Co
lumbia." If he does, you can rest
assured that he is a graduate of
a REAL school and competent to
care for your needs. The associ
ation found that out before admit
ting him to membership.
The chirpractor who applies for
membership in the "Chiropractic
Association of the District of Co
lumbia" must present a diploma
from a recognized school (recog
nized by the twenty-seven State
boards and the American Associa
tion of Chiropractic Schools and
Colleges), he must pass an exam
ination equivalent to a State board
examination and demonstrate his
ability as a chiropractor by giving
adjustments.
This accounts for the fact that
twenty of the Washington chiro
practors are all that have been
found qualified for membership.
There is only one national asso
?ociation. The Universal Chiroprac
tors' Association.
Consult classified section of tel
ephone directory under heading,
"Chiropractic Association of Dis
trict of Columbia." for chiroprac
tors properly qualified.
