'TO 50-50 PLAN
Southern Democrats to
Support Half-and-Half,
Says Williams.
Leader in Fight Forecasts
Defeat of Mapes Bill
In Senate.
Representative Thomu s. Williams,
of Illinois, who has been leading the
1?ht in the House to retain the half
ftand-half fiscal relation between the
District and Federal governments,
l#8t night announced that a new ele
ment has entered Into the contest?
Southern Democrats.
"Several Democrats from the South
hava come to me during the past few
days to say that while they had voted
against the half-and-half in the past
they had decided to. vote for Its re
tention when the Question comes up
for consideration Monday In ' the
Hopse." Mr. Williams said.
"For a time It appeared that we
would have little hope of breaking
down the opposition that some of
the old-timers have always advanced,
but since they have been made to
see the other Fide of the question,
I feel certain the Mapes bill abol
ishing the present fiscal relation be
tween the District and Federal gov
ernments will be killed In the House
and will never reach the Senate.
Will Go Before People.
'In the past there has been little
or no defense offered for the people
.of the District. The opponents of
?the half-and-half have spoken loud
ly and long against the half-and
half. and the members who had not
looked into the matter felt satisfied
to. Tot.e ^ were told to vote.
We will show the District's side of
the question Monday."
Mr. Williams is going to take
the half-and-half campaign before
the people of the District. Yester
day he accepted an invitation to
address the Mid-City Citixens* As
sociation on the fourth Monday
night of this month on the subject
of the half-and-half plan?its rela
tion to the taxpayer of the District
and its statu** in Congress.
Chairman Mapes. of the House
District of Colombia Committee,
author of the bi?l 'to abolish the
half-and-half plan, has only two
Republican members of the com
mittee^ supporting his measure.
They are Representatives Florian
Lamp"rt. of Wisconsin, and Ander
son H. Walter, of Pennsylvania.
Nine Republican members will op
pose the bill 'on the floor of the
House. They are Williams, of Illi
nois: Zihlman. of Maryland; Gould,
of New York; Murphy, of Ohio;
Hays, of Missouri; Reed, of West
Virginia: Rurdick, of Rhode Island;
Focht. of Pennsylvania, and Wheel
er. of Illinois.
H*ld l> Other Bills.
It had been expected that the post
office appropriations bill now, before
the House would be taken up again
?Monday, but Chairman Mapes has
been assured by Majority Leader
Mondell that nothing " will be con
sidered other than District of Colum
bia matters, since Monday- is the reg
ular "District Day."
Mr. Mapes has it in his power to
defer consideration of the half-and
half bill and call up the weights and
measures bill, which was considered
on the last District Day. He is de
sirous, however, of disposing of the
half-and-half bill as early as possible.

| Within the last two months It
has been successfully demonstrated
that a bureau of the United States
Government can satisfactorily con
duct an employment agency for the
benefit of persons who have served
jit faithfully and who owing to a
j necessary reduction in personnel
| have had to be separated fronj ft.
When the new administration of
the Bureau of War Risk Insurance
I last September started plans for
the stabilization of the bureau and
reduction of a surplus number or
employees, it was decided that there
should also enter into the program
for taking: care of the employes
who were from necessity to leave
the Bureau.
In Frlentfle** Surroandln*.
This was an entirely new prac
tice in government procedure and
in fact was unique from the stand-,
point of general business practice
between employer and employe. In
some concerns an employe gets a
certain number of days' notice, his
pay and goes out into the wortd to
seek another job. Not many em
ployers who find it necessary to re
duce their forces take the trouble,
however, to get new employment
for those they can no longer use.
. The memory of the deplorable
confusion and heartaches caused by
the wholesale dismissal of war*
workers In the ?rst months suc
ceeding the signing of the armis
tice on November H. 1918. when
about 12.000 clerks were released,
was still fresh in the minds of those
j who witnessed, the unhappy spec
I tacle of thousands of young women
I friendless, far from home and
! stranded in a strange city. Owing
j to the rapid rise in living expenses,
i board bills were in some instances
overdue or only partly paid, and

(?olden Rale Galden Plan.
It is true that the government
was furnishing to those elerks who
wished to go home transportation
up to a certain date: but owing to
?the effects of illness and other reas
ons some were unable to take ad
vantage of the offer.
So a practical plan for helping the
employes of the War Risk Bureau
to find new positions inside of the
government departments or out
side if necpssary. wan formulated
by Director Cholmeley-Jones and
? Max R. Wainer. assistant director
I in charge of personnel. As there
| was no guiding precedent they de
cided that just good, sound busi
; nesa principles and the Golden Rule
should be followed. That their de
cision was a fortunate one is shown
by the bureau's success in placing
a large majority of the 2.244 em
ployes separated from the bureau
between November 5 and December
31. 1919.

"When we began to talk over
ways and means for a practical
working employment agency within
?the bureau." the assistant director
said, "we decided that it would not
be just or polite in Uncle Sam to
say. -we don't need you any more,
find another Job." but that it was up
to him to see that the clerk who
wanted a position got one. That it.
was not fair for the government to
put those who served It in time of
; need on the edge of the nest and
push them off leaving them to flap
their wings in inidalr. It is grati
fying to feel that the War Risk so
far as we know, is the first de
partmental or even business con
cern as for that, to inaugurate an
agency of this kind for the benefit
of ^released personnel.
"In* rormuating our program for1
released personnel we followed first I
the usual civil service rules with
those who came under that class. !
The Civil Service Commission, in 1
following an order of the President ,
dated November 29. isi8, issued at '
the request of the cdmmlssion. '
adopted a plan whereby depart-I

vance of such reductions to the
commission of the names and
grades of the employes who are to
be dismissed because their services
are no longer needed. In order that
the commission may certify the
names of such employes who have
proved their efficiency to flli vacan

FrHi Bad to Wor?e.
The precipitate downward' course of I
the franc is a plain rign-board on the
toad to ruin. Several months ago.
when I pointed out the prospective
collapse of French credit, an official
ournal here termed my story the va
porlngs of an lll-lnformed alarmist,
I The predictions made in that story
; have unfortunately proved, not too
| pessimistic. but too optimistic.
France, unlike Great Britain, appeara
totally unable to pull herself togethet*
after her ordeal, and her economic life
is going from bad to yorse. Past his
tory indicates only one end to the
drama how unrolling itself.
At the same ^me-and this it is that
so puxxles the observer; Bolshevism
in France is in the discaitl. Not only
was extreme Socialism swamped In
the elections, but the liberal and re
form element? went down too. France
is In the hands of etand-patters who
aesire to keep on standing pat even j
when they feel the ground slipping (
under their feet. And there are for \
the present no murmurs of that revo- j
lution which a year ago. even six,
months ago, half Paris thought would
break out during the winter that is
now upon us.
Thus the situation remains curi
ously complicated. A year ago 11
expected a red revolution, today,
that seems impossible, and ?et the |
conditio^ of the country in the;
meantime has not improved. For j
a month I have been here study
ins opinion and conditions, and 11
find tha^. a complete downfall of j
the governing ?roup of the coun
try. the oligarchy of bankers and
politicians and financial interests,
is expected by most conservative I
and well-informed Frenchmen. How
, this is to be brought about they
, have no idea, except that it will
'not be done by the Socialists.
A regeneration of politics, a
1 weeding-out of the crooks in high
! places, who notoriously abound. |
This, and not tho usual Parisian
holiday In the streets with ^bar
ricades and bloodshed, will regen
erate France. The old-time rev
olution is out of date, for It would
be identified with Bolshevism, and
most Frenchmen hate Bolshevism
like poison, as the elections proved.
Old Order Doomed.
So the old order appears to be !
doomed but not yet. The Indict - !
ment a-ainst the presenting gov- !
erning- clique that Is drawn against
it Ly the public opinion, which,
however, kept It in office rather;
than substitute Bolshevism, can i*e
, summarized thus:
During the war there were no
excess profit taxes and the income
tax was not collected. 9 These
abuses were due to the power ex
ercised by rich manufacturers.
England, and even America with her
vastly greater resources, introduced
taxation which prevented many men
getting rich out of the agonies cf

a Season of Good Health
for Yon. \
Winter and Catarrh are com
panions in evil. Catarrh is
sweeping civilization from one
continent to another, because
civilization does not follow Na
ture's laws. Nature tells us
what to do and we pay no heed.
Down deep in the body of
man lie streams of blood, going
everywhere and making a com
plete circuit of the body every
few seconds. In these rivers,
brooks and streamlets erf blood
flow millions of little soldiers
called corpuscles, whose duty it
is to heal hurts.vexpel the ene
mies of man?germs?from the
body and carry away impuri
Nature, with the blood, builds
bone and hair and teeth and
flesh. She does this so quickly
and with such absolute perfec
tion that if we put into our
mouths and stomachs the
things the body needs, nature
will distill her own chemicals
and build up any torn-down
Catarrh is a tearing down of
mucous membranes. A mu
cous membrane is one of the
wonders of science. It does
the important work of the body
in some lines. When it becomes
diseased, you quickly have the
alarm from nature. Catarrh, in
most cases, first warns us from
a condition of the nose and
throat. These membranes can
not do their work. They be
come clogged. Impurities form
and choke them. Decay starts,
unpleasant odors arise, grad
ually it spreads until the mem
brane is almost worthless. Then
we learn the fault is with the
blood. There is too much work
for the corpuscles to do?not
enough to do it. They need
Placing salves and lotions in
the nose, and taking pills, pow
ders and purgatives will not
give nature what she needs.
[She changes the chemical na
ture of many drugs that we
take, according to our body's
! condition. She will not change
those things she lacks and
needs. Certain vegetable mat
; ter taken into the system gives
nature her tools. Armed with
the power to protect herself't
and heal herself, nature gladly'
hurries the new vegetable re
inforcement to the injured parts,
and we at once feel as though
a great strain had been lifted
from us.
Nature, during winter,
changes the blood of man and
we, because of our habits, con
tinue to do those things which
are against nature. Then, far
down amid the vital organs of
man, creep weaknesses and lack
of proper functioning. Here
is where Catarrh enters and
quickly makes a conquest We
feel the effect of a cold in nose
or throat, and sometimes in
lungs and stomach. S. S. S. is
