MY BIRTHDAY THOUGHT.
My happr birth-month, July Is,
By which, as from a chryaalis,
I eame from some myetorioes sphere
To leera that Ufe’e reflected here
la somber tone or radiant hue.
As to myself I render true
The fine ideals of heart and mind.
As unto them I am Inclined,
8o will my life be weak or great.
For I am moulder of my “fate”—•
May shape my soul> real destiny.
To be la tune with divinity.

President Coolidge turned the first
spadeful of dirt for the Hamline
Methodist Episcopal Church, Six
teenth and Allison streets, yester
day afternoon. The act marfeed the
first step of the erection of what
will be the largest church in the
District, to cost >260,000.
Mrs. J. T. Hereon, wife of the
pastor, sent a beautiful bunch of
roses to Mrs. Coolidge, with regrets
that she could not attend. The
President personally carried the
roses to his wife.
G-hers who turned spadefuls of
earth were E. D. Godfrey, only sur
viving charter member of the
church* and an officer in the G. A.

been a member of the church for

Opposition to the reappointments
of Judge Kathryn Sellers of the

At the White House today It was
said that President Coolidge shortly
will take under consideration the
question of the reappointments.
Final decision will be made by the
President in ample time before
the present terms expire, it was
So far no complaints against the
reappointments have beeA lodged
with the President.
It was reported today that Sena
tor Ball, chairman of the Senate
District Committee, has a constitu
ent in mind for the post now oc
cupied by Judge Sellers, but so
far as could be ascertained, he
has not pressed the claims of this
candidate at the White House.
Opposition to the reappoinment of
Judge Sellers has been expressed
from several quarters in ths past.
The reappointment of Judge Mc-
Mahon also is expected to be op
posed because of his handling of
prohibition cases. His willingness
to drop cases rather than carry
them over for prosecution upon
the failure of the arresting offi
cers to appear in court has been
criticised repeatedly in the past.
