HOUSE PUBLICITY BILL UP IN SENATE Representative McCall Urges Its Presentation in Order to Secure Immediate Legislation. SITUATION MUCH MUDDLED Oimipai'ker Amendment I.IUrly Id He 1'atnl to Acilon at Tills Ncs-don Owing to Democratic Opposition, Washington. Iiec. (t. With the statement to-day that It would go a long way towards the passage of tho publicity bill, which now depends up on the action of the senate, and that tlie publicity organization would con tinue, whenever necessary, to urge Its consideration by that body, Perry Hel mont made public the following letter from lie ptoscntutlvH McCall of Mass chnsetts: "Hon. Perry Melmont, President Na tional Publicity Law organization: 'My Dear Mr. Kelmont: "In reply to your Inquiry concerning the status of the publicity bill which was unanimously reported at the last session by the house committee hav ing It In charge, J would say It was called up by .Mr. Crnmpacker of In diana who moved to suspend the ruin and pass the bill with nn amendment. The house adopted Mr. Crutnpacker's amendment and then passed the pub licity 1,111, sending it to the senate. The result of Incorporating the so called Crnmpacker amendment was to bring to the measure the opposition of a very large number of the mem bers of the house, most of whom were democrats, who would have been In favor of the publicity bill alon, but were not In favor of the amendment. If persisted In, th" amendment will, In my opinion, undoubtedly have thn effect of killing the bill at this ses sion, If It is maintained as a part of It. The propositions are entirely Inde pendent, mid there Is no reason whv loose In favor of tlie principle f the amendment msy not ii,nilnne lo advo cate iliein in the future m thev have In I he past. Hut the publicity bill relat ing to the puhllcnllon of election ex penses had the support of both parties upon the bouse conimlltee. and also re ceived tlie approval of Mr. Tal't and Mr. Hrnu, who were subsequently nominated by their respective rat'Hs for Hie presidency. it Is a striking cireuni.vt.inee that the national coin initiee of thn I wo M.iiilcs have since the election published reports of the receipts and expftipes in connection wlih the Inst election practically ns Ihey would have done If the publicity hill had been a law. As the bill lias gone from the house In the senate it would b necessary to begin over main In tlie house, to reintroduce It, have It referred to the commute and reported by It and considered again in the house, something; I' would he hope less to accomplish at a. short session. "I'nder the circumstances the more certain procedure would lie to have the Semite deal with .the house bill, passing Ii, If possible, as It was origin ally reported by the house committee, "The hill frould then return tn the house, iro Into conference and possess a privilege which would undoubtedly enable both houses to act upon It at the short session. The matter, so far as this congress Is concerned, rests wllli the senate. "In this connection It Is well lo re call the letter of Presldent-I'JIect Tafl to Senator Kin'rouglm. the chairman of the senate committee having the bill In charge. In which Fie strongly staled tiie case in favor of this legislation. "Hlneerelv vours, "ft. W. M'OAU." (Huston Transcript.)

TAFT (Continued from First Page.) Dr. Armstrong never felt the sacrifice of hia llfn in his. work which led up to the founding of Hampton Institute. In hla diary we find him saying that he never knew what self sacrifice or self denial meant. Choose those occupations for yourselves In which you can do the most for your fellowmen, not the ones In which you can have the most enjoy ment, the easiest time or the most money. Don't be a preacher If you would be a better engineer. Have as your watchword 'servic;,-' as Mr. Taft has taken as his." Dr. Abbott addressed the students In Rattol chapel in the morning, his text being "God Is Iove." He spoke of the necessity of sorrow, destruction and crime for the world's progress and said that he was glad to live In a world where the conditions were such rather than where men were but puppets, even though in the. latter would the wires of the puppets were pulled by God. "The end of life," he said, "Is not the building of sky-seraper, nor is it pleasure, Joy or even happiness. It Is the development of manly men and womenly women. "I do not know enough about football to say whether there are too many In juries and deaths from the game or not, but I do know that in order to de velop the manly courage necessary for the team real peril must be faced and the courage Is worth all It costs. "1 have learned more theology from studying the George Jr., republic In New York than from any books I ever read or any sermons I over heard. These boys who are making up the re public are working out their own lives without interference. "When I was in college years ago, the professor of chemistry did all the experiments for the class himself. The performance while Interesting was use less and as ft result I know nothing about, chemistry today. Now t under stood the students do their own experi ments. That Is the way with God and the world. "The scientists say that miracles were not. performed because they are out of the natural order of th uni verse. I agree with them. But today, Christian, Gentile, Jew and all other denominations believe that Jesus Christ was nearly a perfect man. His com panionship with men was not limited lo the three years He had relations with them preceding His crucifixion, but all through the ages He has been on earth with men. "The sum of our relations with God are gathered together In the two words 'Our Father.' What He stands for is just government, self-development and close fellowship with His children."

The Idea that marriages onrht t be encouraged under any and all elroum Btanees, which may be proper In the development of a new country, Is not suitable to the complex condition ( a city where a larger and larger and larger number of people apply for charity each year, and where the llsta of the unemployed grow monthly longer. Marriage Is a serloua natter. In view of Its grave responsibilities, It Is hyp ercritical and foolish tu objeot te a law which Imposes needed obstacles to foolish and lnclandestlne mar riages, because It also Imposes fifteen, minutes of unpleasant publicity upon a young woman In the license bureau. The observation and comment encoun tered on the wedding journey are be yond question tenfold more objeotlon nble than the brief visit to the license bureau, yet the very girls in whose behalf this plea against the license bu reau Is made, voluntarily undertake the wedding Journey at the behest of fashion. Such objections as there are to the workings of the marriage li cense law are solely because It Is new, and they will disappear as the practise becomes the established custom. ' The good that the law does Is positive end constant, and for that reason It should not bechanged. EDUCATIONAL Twenty-fourth Tear. Results, Not Promises, The Butler Business School.
