WASHINGTON, March 2 8—CP) Senator Robinson, the democratic leader, attempted to rally administration forces in the senate today to uphold President Roosevelt's x’eto of veterans appropriations with an assertion that the government should not discriminate against a ci izen because he did jnot wear a uniform.
The democratic chieftain followed Senator Cutting (R-NAt.) who urged the senate to override the veto.
To packed galleries listening to the debate, fully realizing that tin* verdict hung upon a few' votes, Robinson shouted:

After he left Piraeus, the port of Athens, more than a week auo, Insull was in touch with his Athens lawyers by wireless. No word has been received recently, however, they said.
For days, authorities at Bort Said, Egypt, gateway to the .Suez canal, have been watching for the Maiotis which Instill was reported to have chartered at a cost of from $7,500 to $10,000 until April 20. The bott passed through the Dardanelles into the Sea of Marmora today.
