which congress chose him as it did for his similar post at the head of the Washington cele bration was given to him as a tribute to his work in his earlier these patriotic celebra tions is more than a fad with Con jessman Bloom It is a passion Not 1 Day Affair With Sol a celebration is no mere j ere day blowout He celebrates a j whole anniversary year during vhich he rubs his subject into edu cation and public life and every thing from ocean to ocean from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico He has to have a year or two within which to prepare for one such events Then he has to have a year or two within which to re cord the information he has gath ered to provide the celebrants with the raw material to celebrate with Do not assume that Sols cele brations are expensive luxuries He never gets big enough appropria tions from the government to pay fullv for his activities He supple ments the budget out of his own pocket He is rich and can it but he is generous also All the historical spade

said I already have found devia tions from the original documents in capitalization punctuation and spelling as well as approximately 40 erroneous statements or de Has Other Errors Without going farther than the first said Sol all reprints cf the constitution start with the word No such word appears in the original constitution We can call it a preamble ti we please but the constitution makers did not so call The little book referred to like wise offers a picture of the Robert a orris house Philadelphia which was the first official presidential residence Washington lived here in 1793
