The Harding cabinet, as it stands
is about the kind of cabinet that
the Americaan people voted for in
November. If they did not know

were deceived they deceived them

Senator John Sharp Williams
thinks it is the ambition of Harding
to be a president after the McKinley
type. It is an ambition that will
never be realized. McKinley was
not a man of great dreams, but he
poss-essed much tact and diplomacy,

American Legion Estimates
at 400,000 Says Situation
is Now Improving.
New York, March 17. There
were 400,000 veterans of the world
war out of work in the United
States on March 1, last, according to
an estimate- received by the Ameri
can Legion. This is a reduction of
abouf 100.000 from the "peak" of
more than 500,000 jobless ex-service
men in .the country shortb after the
1st of January and the Legion state
reports show there is promise of
further improvement.
The survey of the national situa
tion on which these figures are based
was made by the American Legion
Weekly, official publication of the
Legion, which states that the un
employment situation as affecting the
veterans "appears to have taken a
turn for the better."
A chain of employment agendo;
operated by the Legion in every
state has done much to relieve the
situation, ' say the Legion officials.
The Legion has been instrumental
in obtaining employment for some of
the jobless in the great industrial .
centers but has encouraged a move-!
ment from cities to the farms. It
has demanded that porkers who left I
their positions to go to war should'
enjoy seniority rights on a par with
those of military age who stayed at
home. j
Ex-Service Men Handicarmed 1
Ex-service men have suffered more
in proportion to ineir numoers man
other workers, according to the
Legion's survey, because of the op
eration of seniority rules and effici
ency standards. Nearly a year is
required for t lie returned veteran to
2-et back to his old stride in indus
try, according to the testimony 01

thing that has handicapped the ox

Movement Toward Farms
Throughout the agricultural mid
lie west a general movement from
the cities and towns to the farms is
reported. The average ex-soldier had
little taste for agriculture when he
carae back from the war. It was
hard to keep them down on the
farm after they had "seen Paree."
They chose to work in the small fac
tories or stores in the neighboring
count v seat where, during 19iy. jons
were nlentv an wages high. When
tlioxe jobs began to go there was at j
first an exodus toward the larger.
cities. The Legion strove to dis-j

ulty in getting help, and except in

larger quota of winter floaters than .

Such Action Probable Although It
Would Surprise U. S. Gov
erns Loan Agreement.
Washington. March 17. Recogni
tion of the Obregon government in
Mexico by France was reported as
imminent" in advices from Paris
received here today in official cir
Recognition bf Mexico by France
would cause some surprise at the
state department because of the in
formal understanding that has ex
isted for several years between the
principal European governments
and the United 'States that the rela
tions of those governments with
Mexico would be baaed largely upon
the attitude assumed by the Ameri
can government.
One immediate effect of recogni
tion by France might be, it was ex
plained, the serious disturbance of
the agreement entered into by the
chief banking houses of the world
not to loan money to Mexico unless
such action were concurred in by all
the banks party to the agreement.
The report that France has pre
pared a letter replying to that of
President Obregon and that it is
worded in such manner as to con
stitute recognition is regarded as an
indication that the French govern
ment has decided not to adhere
longer to the somewhat vague un
derstanding. I have a second hand Joliet cylin

Washington, March 17 The Costa
Rican congress has repudiated large
oil and other concessions granted in
'June, 191S, to Amory & Sons.
through an agreement entered into
, between the Costa Rican minister ol
I foreign affairs and the British niin
j ister, according to advices received
1 today by the state department.
The concessions, consisting of
7,000 square miles of land, while os
tensibly granted,to an American com
pany, were largeyl controlled by Bri
tish interests, including the son of
the British premier, Lloyd George, ac
cording to information at the state
: The posiiton of the United Stateo
, was that the agreement by granting
: water rights along the Nicaraguan
i boundary to British interests, would
give the concsesionaire a foothold for
the building of an inter-ocean canal.
1 The Costa Rican congress acted
to repudiate the concession on March
7, the vote being 24 to 10.
