NEWS REVIEW OF CURRENT EVENTS President Asks an Income Tax Rebate---Fight on New Maine Senator. By EDWARD W. PICKARD ONGRESS convened for the short session, recelved President Cool- Idge's message and budget statement, and got down to work on the appropria- tion bills. The opening session of the senate was enllveued by an unusual incident. Four newly elected senators. Stewart of Iowa, IIawes of Missouri. Robinson of Indiana and Gould of Maine, marched down the center aisle to be sworn in when Senator Walsh of Montana stopped the proceedings by offering' a resolution calling for an investigation of charges that Mr. Gould had presented officials of New Brunswick, Canada, with a gift of $100,000 in a railroad deal eight years ago. The resolution provided that Mr. Gould should be permitted to take the oath of office, so that cere- mony proceeded. Next day the senate voted, 70 to 7, that the privileges and elections committee should inquire in- to the charge. Mr. Gould merely asked that the investigation be speedy, asserting thatAt would vindicate him. He says the New Brunswick officials sought to hold him and his associates up in a railroad franchise grant and that he counseled resistance, but his associates came across. On Wednesday congress was offi- cially informed of the death of Sena- tor William B. McKinley of Illinois, and both houses adjourned In respect to his memory. Vice President Dawes and Speaker Longworth appointed committees to attend the funeral in Champaign. President Coolidge in his message made numerous recommendations for legislation, although it is admitted that there will be t[lue to do little more than pass the necessary appropri- ation bills. The President asked the house ways and means committee to introduce a bill granting a reduction of Income taxes due in March and June, 1927. stating that the surplus of government revenue for the currant fiscal year which could be so applied was about $383.000.000, He said be did not think any change in the ape. clal taxes or any permanent redue- Lion was practical at this time. The Iemocratlb leaders have indicated that they will demand a permanent reduction. In the matter of farm relief legisla- tion Mr. Coolidge reasserted his oppo- sition to anything In the nature of price fixing by the government, but su'ggested that somethlng might be done to solve the surplus problem by supplementln the operattonq of the co-operative markeHvff organlzaHons. As for the cotton growers, he said they must reduce their acreage for the coming year by about one-thlrd. Corn belt leaders in congress answered this clause of the 'message with .the an- nouncement that the McNary-Haugen bill would be reintroduced at once. Mr..Coolidge recommended that the Philippines be transferred from mill- tart to civil rule as soon as possible, but said the Islands should not be given complete independence until the natives are "politically fitted for self- governmemt and economically inde- pendent." He added the assurance that the United States would always bear some responsibility for the de- fense of the Islands. Concerning prohibition the message called for reform of abuses in enforce- ment and, said congress should speed- ily enactuch supplementary legisla- tlon as th Treasury department miglit ask to strengthen the Volstead act. The first of the treasury measures was introduced in the house Wednes- day and it Included the appropriation of $,500,000 for "advances to be made by special disbursing agents," whlch means the purchasing of evidence. Several members of the committee re- fused to vote for this, and others said they would fight it on the floor of the house. /k NOTHER angle of the prohibition El matter was presented Wednes- day when the Chief Executive trans- mttted the budget estimates of ex- penditures for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1928. Here is what he said: J "For the enforcement of prohibition nearly $30,000,000 is provided in the budget by direct and indirect appro- priations. The coast guard has been enlarged and strengthened to enable it to prosecute effectively its part of the campaign of enforcement, while the other enforcement agencies have been amply financed. "Whatever is necessary to put into effect the expressed wlll of the people as written into the eighteenth amend- ment and the will of the congress as expressed in the Volstead act will be done. Whatever fuhds may be neces- sary to vindicate the law and secure compliance with all its provisions should be provided. The constitution- al duties of thePresident and the con. gress make any other course indefensi- ble." Naturally the wets didn't like this at all, and they were reinforced by the advocates of strong national defense when the budget figures for the army and navy were read. For those branches it is proposed to expend in the coming year more than $7,000,000 less than In the 1927 fiscal year. Though the coast guard rum fleet is to be increased, the navy will have to place some of its 309 ships in reserve and it is alleged the fleet is under- manned and suffering deterioration for lack of funds. The decline in the per- sonnel of the army already had been called to public attention by army of- ficlals. Tbe budget provides for.S574,- 000.000 for national defense, and the President said thls was "a very con- siderable amount to spend for protec- tion In time of peace.'" Mr. Coolidge called attention to the fact that no provision is made in the estimates of the Navy department for commencing construc(ion of the re. maining three of the eight light cruisers which the act of December 18, 1924, authorizes to be undertaken prior to July 1. 1927. He expressed his approval of thls omission. Against this "interference" the house naval af- fairs committee promptly revolted. Secretary of the Navy Wilbur and his chief aids were called before the com- mittee and told it that of the eight cruisers mentioned, which were sched- uled for completion In 1927, only two have been started and they cannot be completed before 1929. Chairman But- ler then declared that so far as he and most of the majority members of the committee were concerned, no more navy proposals will be approved until assurances are received that, once authorized, the programs will be pushed to completion in accordance with the legislation. Under a special order the house passed the senate bill providing for In- creases In the salaries of federal Judges tn the Supreme, Circuit, Dis- trict and other courts. EVERTING to the agriculturists the American Farm Bureau Fed- eratl-n was In session In Chicago and apparently got the Middle West and the South together on a proposed pro- gram of farm relief. hey adopd the ideas of Frank O. Lowden and out- lined a surplbs control measure which they will ask congress to pass. Briefly, It will do these things: Provide a federal farm board, ad- ministering an dequate revolving fund. with whose help surpluses can actually be handled by co-operative agenbles created by the farmers. Distribute the costs of managing surplusys Just as broadly as the re- sultant,benefits are distributed, that is, over each marketed unit of a par- titular commodity through the equali- zation fee. The federation adopted a long list of resolutions on matters vital to agri- culture, and elected these new direc- tors: Central section, Hugh Harper, Lancaster, WIs.: eastern section, E. B. Cornwall, Midlebury, Vt.; south. era, Frank Demmick. Shuteston, La.: Western section, M. S. Winder, Salt Lake City. Re-elected officers were: W. H. Settle, Indianapolis ; J. F. Por- ter, Columbus, Tenn., and C. S: Brown, Mesa. Aria. TALY'S recently signed treaty with Albania has stirred up a great fUss in the Balkans and In some Europead capitals there were fears that it would lead to another war. The Serbs were especially angry, feeling that it was directed primarily against them. and Foreign Minister Ntnchitch resigned, and was followed out by the entire Jugo-Slav csblnet, This was a sur- prise to the Italians for they had considered Ninehitch their good friend. Officially, Mussolini's government de- clared the treaty contained no secret military clauses and could in no way be considered injurious to peac in the Balkans. It was, said the Italians. merely a pact of friendship and arbi- tration between Italy and Albania, in. suring peace, guaranteeing absolute sovereignty and territorial integrity to Albania, and confirming and emphasiz- ing the principles upheld by the League of Nations. REMIER MUSSOLINI, by a clef'tee law, has imposed a tax on all bachelors in Italy between the ages of twenty-five and sixty-five. This is another step in his campaign against birth control. The tax is progressive according to income, and the proceed will be turned over to the National In- stitute for the Protection of Mother- hood and Childhood. Unmarried wom- en are not subject to the tax. OST eminent of those taken by death last week was Claude Mo- net, the French painter. He was eighty-slx years old and the last sur- vivor of the great impressionist group of the 80's which included Manet, Re- heir, Plssaro and Slsley. A CTMTIES of the administration In behalf of Adolfo Diaz, presi- dent of Nicaragua, seem fated to prove decidedly Injurious to the pres- tlge of the United States in Latin America. Juan B. Sacasa, who was the candidate of the revolutionary liberals, has set up his government in Puerto Cabezas and has been for- mally recognized as president by Mex- Ico. This lead Is expected to be fol- lowed by Salvador, Guatemala and Panama, while Costa Rlca and Hon- duras are awaiting developments. Guatemala sent an offer of mediation. but Diaz considered this as avoring Mexican intervention. However, he advised Sacasa that he would give him safe conduct to the interior ,to discuss peace negotiations. acasa'e followers are confident that he will win eventually and must be recognized by the United States. Toward the end of the week it was reported that Sacasa and his cabinet were effectual- ly penned up in Puerto Cabezas by American warships. HEN the League of Nations council began its December siGn In Geneva it was confronted by the ]emands of Germany that allied military control of that country be abolished and that the evacuation of the Rhineland take place speedily. OPposed to these demands was the de- termination of the French that France and her allies on the east first be as- sured against fUture aggression. Stresemann. Cbamberlain and Briand bad private conversations and reached an agreement on the military control question. The new accord provides that the lnteraUled military control commission, with headquarters in Ber- lin since the armistice, will leave Ger- many and be dissolved by January 15 or 30. Supervision of Germany's dis- armament will be placed in charge of a league commission, as provided by the covenant. The three foreign ministers theu tackled the other problem, and it was said they probably would agree on an early evacuation of the Coblens and Mayence bridgeheads and the with- drawal of all British and Belgian troops of occupation. HE League of Nations virtually Tlost another member, for under pressure from Shia Ting, reprtesent- lag the Canton Kuomlntang govern. sent, the delegate from the nominal Peking government, Chao Hsin-chn, agreed to take no active Part In the proceedings and to make no commit- ments regarding China. Shia said the Kuomlntang, which claims to be the only real" government in China, does not recognize the league and would not Join it after the civil" war Is ended unless the powers recognlzed its full independence and sovereignty. He said further that China is ready to Join Russia, Turkey, Persia and Af- ghanistan in the Asiatic league which was really started by the recent meet- ing of Tehitcherin of Russia and Rushdy Bey of Turkey In edema. by His Handwriting ! - -_ : - .- _ -= =-  (Copyrht.) ] Is He a Materialist? Heavy and thick writing with letters low above the line indicates one who lives moly on the physical plane. He may e emphatic, firm, and sue- eessful In a material way, but if the wrJting is ragged and disorderly, with a pronounced slant to the right, there will be sensuality. The very idealistic, spiritual and visionary person writes with a thln, light line. with letters high above the line. Such may be too impractical however for their success on this plane We should look for balaqce between physical and spiritual quail- ties. The heavy, thick writer may re- veal many intuitive and Inspirational qualities elsewhere in his writingt such as long generous terminals to his word endings, etc., while the thin, light line writer may show strength and emphasis in firmly crossed t barn heavier down strokes, and many other signs of will-power, to be learned later. The healthy balance between things we term spiritual and what we call material is necessary for s well rounded character. A great spiritual teacher says, "If we cannot prove a spiritual law on earth we cannot prove it anywhere." The dreamer who does not apply his life to the earth Is Just as much amiss as the .pure materialist who ignores his spiritual self. la He Idealistic? When tbe letters !lke d and t reach high toward the line above and the t bars slant upward as well as the writing, then we will find a writer who is ideal. Istlc. Neatness of the page will be evident. And capitals will be simply formed. ,,t -- "7"* / "t T'-' There Will be a s u g gestlon about the page of a desire on the part of the writer to ex- press in his writing as he would in his life, the best and most unusual way. Capitals will look much like printed ones. Loops of l's will appear slender and reach high above the line. Lower loops of the f will be small and tim upper will be large in proportion. Writing will be medium in weight or light--never heavy. T bars are sometimes found above the upright altogether and not touch- ing it at all. This is one of the surest signs of detecting idealism in the writer. The general appearance of the page of a writer of this nature is a pleas, ins one. la He Fond of Children? When one is fond of children for ehildren's sake, you will find his writ- lag containing many curves and round- ed letters. Writing will be medium or large. Much space will be used be- tween letters of words. Space will also be seen to be pronounced between words and between lines. Capltall A and D will be made ex- tremely wide. Lower loops of f will not be pointed llke a wasp's body. There Is little of the sting of tongue in the lover of children. Those who make angnlar writing are always capa- ble of taking care of children, as they are shrewd critics and teachers, but they do not have the patience to do the detail work in ralslng the child. Writing of the person who wants children about will always be slant- ing far to the rlght. Terminals will frequently run far to the right and upward High letters above the llne, such as d and t, indicate a benevolent nature--one who would love children for their helplessness. Wide margins at left also tell of the generosity of the one who will put herself ont for the opportunity to protect the child. Note.--Do not make final Judgment until other signe in writing are studied. Earth's Atmosphere The atmosphere of the earth is about 1-5 by volume oxygen, % nitro- gen, 1-2500 carbon dioxide, and a variabl# .proportion aqueous vapor. Besides these there are traces of oth- er common gases, as ammonia, ozone, agon, helium, neon, krypton and xenon. The latter are present in mi- nute quantities only, and are isolated by the employment of low tempera- tares. 5atidied Plalstow Wife--I would rather hays my husband as he is than as he would be U he wu not.--London Mail.
