It is to be hoped that the regular session of
Congress will do much that the extra session left
undone. In calling the latter more than six mon- j
ths ago the President urged that the problems
of reconstruction be taken up, but nothing came '
of it. Daylight saving was repealed to please thei to
farmers and against the will of the towns. Pro- \
hibition was enacted, cutting down the govern- : es
merits' revenues enormously and creating a new !
host of tax-consumers. The treaty of peace was
discussed to a deadlock. But virtually all the pro- :
blcms of reconstruction following a war which j
still technicaly exists, as well as a number of

Judge McNeille of the Philadelphia Women's

After a referendum in which the "wets" poll
ed the most votes Ohio has notified the Federal
State Department of the recall of the action of
its legislature in ratifying the prohibition amend

present more than enough ratifications left to
safeguard the amendment.

WHEN WE SEE WITH OPEN EYES
Mountains are proofs of the world's old life. But for them we should all be fishes. Haunting
thrills of that continent-lifting energy among them, and they are strong company, especially when
you have them to yourself. -
Then occurs the yearly marvel, when woods turn to tapestries of gorgeous dye, and the air
clears to give you those splendid blues of distance. Majesty is throned on the hills, dressed in gold
and blue crimson. Kinder than human sovereigns, Nature exacts no homage. Only human sover
eigns need to. In the early morning the world spa rkles glows and reeks with incense. It is rare and
sweet old world.
But all of this is for the man who sees clearly through eyes that are framed in bodies that are
strong and well and beautiful.
To the grouch, the one who is torn and worn and despondent from bad health, there is nothing
of beauty in the rising of the sun behind a bank of gray, nothing like gold in the setting of the sun
in the bank of fiery red
All things look yellow to a jaundiced eye," mid the world is really only beautiful to those who
are themaeves endowed with an appreciation of the beautiful. -

It will not do for Congress to content itself
with thé complaint that the President's message <
fails to point oat practical legislative remadWy

be nothing strange, for the President is still a
sick man, but even with the President at his best

how to do it. This is particularly true of a ma

Accordng to David Lawrence, non-partisan
' Washington correspondent, Congress, would like
to side-step" the menacing domestic problems
\ that call for solution. The cost of living and tax

dealt with, and there are several other scarcely

* How to Keep Out of the Coal Line !
Make the coal you have last longer and give more heat by using the
world-renowned Dunham Radiator Traps on your heating system. They
automatically remove the air and water that clog up the radiators and keep
the steam from doing its work. Cost of change-over is low.
We recommend the coal-saving Dunham Heating Service, and will
make estimates for homes, apartments, factories and office buildings with
out obligation. To save coal, see us now.
