A third Christmas-time of world

"Of course it is impossible to say
just how much the submarine activi activities

it down much."
Due to this and other causes, the
foreign money order business is in a

"I attribute its decrease in a great

Invitations are not so easy to ob obtain
tain obtain as they used to be. A story told
in social circles has it that at the
opening of President Wilson's term a
certain senator of influence sent to
the White House for ten invitations
issued in blank, in which he wished to

whom he wished to show some favor.
The story has it that his request was
refused with a rebuke.
For some of the White House af

so great that almost unheard of sub

on one occasion watchful door tenders
picked up admission tickets which
proved to be very clever forgeries.
