"Man should enjoy the Sabbath day, but not desecrate It.' said Mr. Tullar in continuing his re marks. "Shall we keep the day holy or desecrate It? God says, 'Kep the day holy.' Man says. Let us have Sunday excursions iind Sunday base ball.'" In speaking with a represent ative of this paper yesterday Mr. Tu' lar said that he believed the Saturday half holiday was a-aoing to be a great benefit to the worklngman. He said that many pieces of business already closed down" Saturday afternoons, and he believed that the Saturday half-holiday was coming to stay. He explained further that if the people did not see to It that the Sabbath day was kept distinctly an a dav for rest, the de mands of employers would be that 'It should be a day of toil, and that In stead, of laboring six days a week, the worklngman would find that he was ex pected to labor seven days a week.

The con grssman said thvre were-383 members of the House and 3S3 opinions in re-1 gard to the question.

The boys were home for a vacation a short time ago and one of the boys from Yale nas conplalnlng about the amount of geometry he had to prepare for , the next day. The Annapolis fellow asked how . much of a lesson , he had to get. The Yale man replied twelve pages. Well said the middy we never have less than fifteen pages rnd litany times more.
