If the irreconcilable Re publicans were sure he would do it, they would help muster a two thirds vote so as to put the respon sibility for rejection squarely on Mr. Wilson. The White house says nothing. There is a bare chance that the irreconcilables will exe cute the political maneuver afore mentionedputting the whole thing on the doorstep of the execu tive mansion.

It's non-fading mineral surface will remain beautiful as the years go by. You see, Reynolds shingles are made of high grade wool felt thoroughly saturated with pure asphalt and then surfaced with crushed rock whose natural colors are as permanent as the ages.
