- Working on Message, .i - -
' The president has began oreoaration
of his next message to congress. He
plans to urge that number of these
questions be taken up. '
, Although Mr. Wilson was tired out
when he returned to the White House
last night, he was up early today
and had breakfast before 8 o'clock.
Immediately afterward he began
reading a huge stack of mail accu
mulated during bit trip to Williams-
!town, MiSS. "
The president- asked first for the
latest information on the political
jmakeup of the house of representa
tives in the Sixty-fifth congress. He
was told indications from present re
turns were that the republicans have
217 members and the democrats 212,
with six members of other parties. ,
i After a brief stay in Washington
the president may go away for a rest
before congress convenes. Hot
Springs was mentioned as the place
he might visit. . ,
Few Cabinet Changes.
There have been many reports cir
culated regarding changes in the
cabinet; but officials in close touch
(with the president declared today that
it is almost certain that he will urge
all the present members of the cabi
net to remain at their posts and
changes are ; not expected, unless
members themselves desire to quit
the official family.
It is considered possible, however,
that one or more members of the
cabinet may resign for personal rea-
I sons. Secretary McAdoo has been
frequently mentioned as one member
'likely to resign and Representative
! Carter Glass of Virginia, chairman of
'the house banking and currency
committee, has, been suggested for
,his post. It was ' stated definitely
'today that Mr. McAdoo can remain
in the president's cabinet as long as
he desires and it was denied that he
hat offered his resignation.
Supreme Court Probabilities,
j In case there is a vacancy in the
supreme court, .Attorney General
Gregory, Secretary Lane or Senator
i Walsh of Montana would be consid
ered first for" the appointment.
( Secretary Redfield, Secretary Biker
and Secretary Danieis also, have been
mentioned as members of the cabinet
who might desire to quit public life,
but it was stated definitely today
that none of them had signified any
such intention. ,
Secretary Tumulty it also expected
to remain at hit present post, al
though he could be appointed at a
member of the board of general ap
praisers in New York- if ne desired.
Reports have connected , Mr. Tu
multy's name with a cabinet position,
but it wss stated authoritatively to
day that he will not become a cabinet

Live insurance is an exception (1)
to the rule "Don't buy a thing until
you meed it;" and (2) in that its cost
has not increased along with practi
cally everything else. ' If one waits
until he actually needs life insurance,
he cannot then get it Insurance com
panies insure only sound lives. Im
paired lives are denied all the stand
ard policies. The percentage which
companies reject is greater than their
death rate percentage.
If you have no life insurance, the
time to make your application is when
you are in good health. While the
cost of insurance has not advanced,
yet the premium does increase with
each year of added age. The younger
the age at which a policy is taken,
the smaller the premium.
