countries than Huey told at one time during debate on the measure The kingfish was telling stories out of school but what he said lies at the bottom of the whole thing Ill tell you how we got a tariff on copper last time he said We got it because several other sen ators and myself went around here swapping enough votes to get it We couldnt get the tariff with oil and copper and coal by themselves so we put in lumber in order to get a few more votes Theres no need of whipping the devil around the stump It was v knew about tariff log rolling that he asked for authority todo the job himself

na tional defense until such time as the other nations reveal a disposition to join in such a movement Universal Draft Tjrgod Adoption of the universal draft act was urged by Mr Hall as a guarantee
