PS.RIS. France, Feb. S4. French
girls are not taking very well
to football, despite several at
tempts to make it a real feminine
sport. The reason is that the doc

spoil their figures.
Every Sunday several football
games are staged between teams
of young girls, but it is noticeable
that the feminine football associa
tions are not gaining recruits. But
the sporting newspaper. I.'Auto.
points out that so long as football

On Railroad Bill; Say
It Means High Prices
WASHINGTON. D O, Feb. 24.
President WL'son was asked
today by George P. Hampton,
managing director of the Fnrmers
National council, on behalf of farm
organisations affiliated with the
council, to veto the railroad bill
on the "grounds of public policy."
Mr. Hampton asked that the
presldem personally or through
secretary Tumulty receive a dele
gation next Thursday that the
farmers representatives may have
a chance to express more fnllr
their reasons for opposing It.
The president was told that the
return of the railroads would
mean an Increase of "four to five
billion dollars" In the cost of liv
ing, because of the increase in
freight rates and that one billion
dollars of the iacnatse would be
passed on to tbe farmers. This
increase. Mr. Hampton said, could
not be borne, as agriculture new
was in a "precarious position.
