The oath was administered by Vice Presi dent Sherman. The first quartet comprised Messrs. Bryan, Chilton, Clapp and Clark of Wyoming, and they "and all who followed were cor dially congratulated by the vice president. Mr. Chilton took the oath on "a bible given him by his mother. As soon as the last of the senators had left the vice president's desk the roll of the senate was called. Eighty six senators, within five of the entire membership, were found to bo present, and Senators Gallinger and Bacon were appointed to a commit tee to wait on the president and notify him that the senate was in session and prepared to do business. The only feature of the proceed ings not on the program was intro duced by Senator Bailey of Texas, who sought to have the hour of the daily meetings fixed at 2 p. m., in stead of noon. The suggestion was made In connection with a motion by Senator Brown of Nebraska fixing the hour of 12 as the time of meet ing. Mr. Bailev ultimately withdrew the amendmer , with a promise to re new it t iO For Mo I ask not wealth or golden store, Nor right to rule my fellow man. Just this I ask, and nothing more, To live my life as best I can. I ask not fame, nor high estate, Nor argosies upon the sea. I only ask that loves ones wait To give sweet welcome unto me. I ask no crown of high finance, Nor plaudits from the crowding throng. I only ask a man's fair chance To save my loved ones from all wrong. I ask not for the pomp and power Of those who rule from golden throne. I only ask that every hour I can provide well for my own. 1J r. -4- UNCLBifOE'S SPEECH ' Uncle Joe Cannon made his first speech on the floor of the house Wednesday, April 5th. The house had under discussion a special order limiting debate on the rules to four hours. The Associated Press report ,pays:, "Mr. , Cannon's speech was easily the feature". He was greeted with applause from both parties when he arose to make his maiden address of the session. " 'I want to say here and now,' he declared, 'that substantially the rules proposed by this legislation are an endorsement of nearly all that is good in the rules that have evo luted since the adoption of the con stitution, and; therefore I am not go ing to criticise the rules merely be cause the majority of the house pro poses to adopt them. " 'Sometimes majorities and minori ties tear passion to tatters and ap peal from the standpoint of dema gogy and clap-trap to people that would not know a rule or a code of rules if they met in the middle of the street. " 'And now it is said we have a unanimous consent calendar. I am glad that we have. Along with that is the saying, in the language of the distinguished gentleman from Kan sas (Mr. Murdoch) and the universal representation of the uplift maga zine, that it. is no longer necessary to crawl on your knees, hat in hand, to ask the speaker for recognition for unanimous consent. When the unanimous consent calendar is called, if my judgment prompts me to ob ject to the, consideration of a bill, no doubt the man in charge of that bill will figuratively come on his hands and knees, with his hat in hand, even the gentleman from Kan sas (Mr. Murdock), trying to con vince his co-member on the floor that the consideration of the bill not to be ohjected to.' "Mr. Cannon criticised the rules for not permitting the discharge of the rules committee itself and de clared that 'Czar Henry' would be no more nor less of a 'czar' than -vvas the former speaker. "Mr Cannon also complained that no method was provided for the 'so cialist minority from Wisconsin or any other gentleman with a wild (Continued on Page 15.) Funny Doings Because he had no visible means of support the judge fined him $30. Later he braced up, settled down to work and saved his money. Later he built a little cottage to shelter himself and family. Then the tax gatherer came along and fined him $30 for having been frugal and enterprising. If you spend your money freely you are foolish. If you save your money you are a "tightwad." If you have nothing you are fined for being without visible means of support. If you save you are fined for being thrifty. What's the use? The Flat Owner's Fate A rich man built a row of fiats, All modern and complete; A velvet lawn stretched out in front Along the noisy street. And then he tacked a sign up high Above the passing crowd: "These handsome, modern flats for rent No children are allowed." He garnered rents in golden store And riches high he piled, The while the echoes never rang With laughter of a -child. No childish feet went pitty-pat Adown the marble halls; The gloomy corridors ne'er rang With children's happy calls. The rich man died, as all men must, And neared St. Peter's gate, And o'er the golden arch he saw The words that sealed his fate. The words he saw were writ in flame, And seared his hard heart well: "This place is full of little ones You'll have' to go below." Books They Should Read. ""Nelson W.
