is continued doubt an tVUfc* compo

This, as well as the speakership is
temporarily delaying the formation
of the proposals Mr. Wilson wishes

Regardless of the make-up of the

urge the cleaning up of the program
he proposed when he secured the co

threatened railroad strike.
International matters also demond
the attention of the President. He
must soon return to diplomatic In

submarine activities of Germany are
also in an unsettled stage.
