CONGRESSMEN BEWARE
MACE THAT PECKS THEM
Special Correspondence to Tbe Press
WASHINGTON, March 15.—
Some years ago Col. "Ike" Hill,
then-sergeant-at-arms of the house
of representatives, was order to get
out the mace to restore order
among several wildly quarreling
congressmen.
Col. Hill hurried down with the
mace, its silver eagle shining be
fore him. He didn't have any idea
what he was expected to do with it
when he reached the scene of the
disorder. But that didn't worry
him any.
"Shut up," he shouted, waving
the eagle. "Shute up, or I'll let
him peck you." The combatants
laughed and subsided.
Well, most people wouldn't have
any more idea what a mace is for
than Col. Hill. There may be a
few people here and there who
don't even know what it looks like.
For the benefit of these The Press
hereby gives a picture of the crit
ter, clasped warmly in the arms of
Speaker Cannon.
The mace will probably play an
important part In the coming extra
session of congress when Uncle Joe
and his naughty boys get to quar
reling about the rules. It's a good
Idea for all young congressmen to
know the bird by sight. Because if
the eagle comes fluttering down the
aisle toward them, and they don't
sit down and sit light, close the
mouth and fold hands tight in front,
they'll be "in contempt." And that
means reproof, censure —maybe ex
pulsion.
For the llttle-heard-of mace is thfc
final authority in preserving the
dignity and decorum in congress.
The mace, then, consists of a sli
ver eagle, with outstretched wings,
which sits on a silver ball, which In
turn rests on a pillar composed oi
13 ebony sticks, bound together
with silver bands. When congress
convenes it is brought solemnly
out, Installed on a granite pedestal
—and is promptly forgotten.
Its origin goes back to tbe old
Roman days, when the magistrates
who corresponded to present day
police judges, bad maces —they
called them fasces then—which
were carried about the city by lie
tors.
The original fasces consisted ol

the outside. The judge would wan-

the magistrates' orders. If it was
a trivial offense, they would use
merely the rods. If serious, they
would make the culprit lay his head
across the gutter and chop it off
with the ax.
These fasces soon became an es
tablished symbol, not only in Ro
man government, but with other na
tions.
The mace doesn't get much exer
cise in late years. Its invocation
recently to quiet John Wesley
Games of Tennessee was the first
trip out in 10 years.
