L. whiIe a mob of relatives from

entered the world.
Xhe grandfather rushed in and re
turned proudly, carrying his newborn
son an ,j b is grandson, one on each

babies. The babies were passed a -1

After liai f an hour there wa- a sud

"Carraramba, madre Dios, which
baby is which?" shouted one relative.
A frantic investigation proved that
the babies - had been completely mix
cd up. Both looked alike and their
mothers were alike as two peas, ev-,
erybody looked alike. None of the
relatives could distinguish between i
them, neither could the doctor. ;
Finally it was decided to choose
blindly and to baptize the babies two
hours apart. A priest baptized the
first hut when the second appealed
he protested and filed a complaint
before the courts. |
The babies will never know their
relationship surely. They wdll not
know' who is the grandmother or who
is the grandmother or who is the
mother. The ntmhew may become
his own uncle. The mother may be- •

son. An amazing number of tangled
relationships is possible. And when!
the babies get married the tangle)
will be still greater. j
Further complications are expected I
when the husband of the daughter re
turns from Argentine, where he is
on business and finds the mixup. He
w'ill not know whether he is greeting
his son or his brother-in-law.

Washington, Dec. 3rd—President
Coolidge has reordered an investiga
tion of the cases of the 32 socalled
"political prisoners," which has re
vived the rumor here that he will
grant them all pardons on Christmas
d a y. >
The president has also created a
special committee to advise him on
the question of restoring liberty to
The advisory hoard is nonpartisan,
composed of Newton D. Baker, secre
tary of war in the Wilson adminis
tration; Bishop Charles Brent cS Buf

bun its first meeting in Buffalo yc» 1
Before this committee, the president
has caused to be laid all the formal
department of justice records in the
In addition he has i
fumished it with documents not in the
department records which he is said
to believe conclusively warrant the
freedom of the prisoners.
A favorable report on the prisoners'!
case is due from the advisory body at j
the White House in the near future. ;
With it in hand, President Coolidge!
is expected to free the prisoners 1
promptly. All of them have been in
prison over five years and most of ;
their sentences have five years or;
more to run.
It was learned here today that !
President Coolidge three weeks ago
secretly commuted the sentence of Li
hrado Rivera, Mexican socialist edi
tor, who was sentenced to 10 years in
prison in 1917 for alleged seditious
utterances. Rivera was freed upon
condition that he return to Mexico.
Formal representations for his
lease were among the official acts of
the Mexican government after receiv
ing recognition by the United States
some weeks ago.
