Some Democrats, however, de clared they would oppose any grant of unlimited power on the allied debts to the secretary of the treasury, and in timations of a similar position were given by some Republicans. President Harding wrote Chairman Penrose of the Senate finance commit tee and Chairman Fordney of the House ways and means committee that "all the circumstances suggest the grant of broad powers to the secre tary of the treasury to handle this problem In such a manner as -best to protect the Interests of our govern ment." "I hope your committee and Con gress," the letter continued, "will find It consistent promptly to sanction such an act as that which Is suggested. If the Congress will promptly sanction such a grant of authority, the secre tary may proceed to the prompt exer cise of the powers granted to him and we reasonably may expect a satisfac tory handling of the obligations due and thee laims of onr government which are awaiting settlement."

When I was in high school we gave an. entertainment "Julius Caesar," in which I had a minor part. Without coat cr collar, sleeves rolled up high, and a blanket for a toga I was a Roman citizen. I was also one of the stage managers. After one scene the curtain stopped about two feet from the floor. I stepped on the stage to right the dif ficulty. Without warning, the curtain came down in a wreck on my poor defenseless head. I was stunned for a moment Then I began to realize what a grotesque figure I must be, for I had discarded my toga while shifting scenes, and there I was standing alone on the stage amid the ruins, feeling the bump on the top of my head. But I smiled in spite of myself, gave a professional bow, and stalked with dignity to the wings. It was several minutes before the audience quieted down so that the play could go on. Chicago Tribune.
