however the faintest stir is set down and subjected to careful analysis The past year has been one devoid of the usual in politics Aside from occasional longdistance sniping politicians for the most part have been as quietly bewildered by the dazzling parade put on by the pres ent administration as have the com mon every day citizens Unless the signs fail however ttey are beginning to catch their breaths Astonishment is giving way to skepticism in many instances The politically charmed life which the administration has been living for more than a year apparently is about to be supplanted by a
