That there are some Congressmen

and character of the great struggle in
which we are engage 1 is shown bv the
action of the Home Committee or

It reported the bill to ihe House w i'i
an amendment placing registrants 01

of pulling back mulishly at the very

other Democrats who ought to know

amendment, and only three Democrat
