with a similar compliment. Ott

r " famous on the legitimate stage by Willi

love, revenge, romance and the hidden
but none the less powerful motive s

the Nation's capital, are interwoven
In a screen drama in which the appeal
to the heart's emotions is as potent
, as the desire to see justice triumphant
, and the manoeuvering of scheming
' , plotters frustrated.

the great plant at Huntington, which;
is both the metropolis of West Virgin

and that city will begin to orcpnrc at j

which is vet to he appointed, and try
to make a favorable impression with
the presentation of the facilities it

strong and energetic champion here
in the person of Mr. Woodyiird. It I

Congressman Cooper, whose district
Huntington was before the recent redistricting
of the state, will join
Woodyard in making a fight to get
the big government plant located at
Huntington. Cliarlestion will have

suffrage in the committee, with Judge
Moss voting, was never more than
one This eommittoe ehaugo makes
it, seem improbable that a favorable

some of the members of lite delegation
were known 10 be half-heartodlv
in favor of giving the suffragists
a rhanre by the constitutional
amendment route, but since the voters
in West Virginia have so recently
and so overwhelmingly voted in
opposition to votes tor women, they1

The only West Virginians present
at the second and final Gridiron dinner
of the year were Senator-elect
Howard Sutherland and William P.
Wilson, of Wheeling. It is the first
time that the former has attended one
of these dinners since coming to Congress
and to say he enjoyed it is stating
the fact mildly. To receive an
invitation to a Gridiron dinner is on a
par with receiving an invitation to
dine with the President at the White
House. Meaning no disrespect, but
just a matter of personal predilection,
there are many people who would
trade off a White House meal for a
Gridiron dinner and throw in a bonus
lu close the deal.
