MAN was being tried on the charge of shooting a number of pigeons on the property of a farmer. In giving his evidence the farmer was exceedingly careful, even nervous, and the attorney for the defense endeavored to frighten him.

"Now," the lawyer remarked, "are you prepared to swear that this man shot your pigeons?"

"I didn't say he shot 'em," was the reply. "I said I suspected him o' doing it."

"Ah, now we're coming to it. What made you suspect that man?"

"Well, firstly, I caught him on my land wi' a gun. Secondly, I heerd a gun go off an' saw some pigeons fall. Thirdly, I foun' four o' my pigeons in his pocket and I don't think them birds. flew there and committed suicide."

Charles A. Seiders, of Toledo, Ohio, tells of this sign seen on the back of a dilapidated Ford:

GOVERNMENT clerk received an unexpected raise in salary. At the close of his day's work he rushed to the telegraph office and sent this question to the girl of his choice: "Will you marry me?" He prepaid the return fees, which permitted ten words. His suspense was brief. Back came every one of them: "Yes, gladly, willingly, joyfully, delightedly, gratefully, lovingly, yes, yes, yes."

Torrey, the famous revivalist, was holding a large evangelical mission in Albert Hall, London. He was speaking about the number of people who either had gone or would go to hell, and, coming down to cases, added: "I am sorry to say that a near relative of my ownmy aunt, in fact-died impenitent and has certainly gone to hell." This style of oratory, says the Manchester "Guardian," proved little to the taste of a young man in the congregation, who rose and made for the door. Whereupon Torrey marked him down in the usual style of the revivalist, and improved the occasion with, "Yes, and there is a young man who will certainly go to hell, too!" He proceeded to enlarge on this suggestion as the young man made his way slowly to the door, apparently unmoved. When the victim reached the door, he turned around and addressed the revivalist for the first time: "Ta-ta, I'm off! Any message for auntie? Or shall I just tell her you'll see her later?"


N anecdote on spelling and phonetics in Scotland: A woman entered a draper's shop in Edinburgh and began to inspect a piece of goods. The following conversation ensued:

Shopkeeper: "Ay, a' oo."
Customer: "A' ae oo?"
Shopkeeper: "Ay, a' ae oo."

The Outlook

The Unready Senate


HE House of Representatives in the Seventieth Congress was ready to begin the transaction of essential business the minute after it was organized and organization was effected without friction. The Senate, after assembling and passing routine resolutions, without definite organization, was ready merely to begin debating a mass of vexatious preliminaries to the transaction of business.

The comparative efficiency of the two houses, apparently, has not changed since the last Congress, or since the last but one. For several years past the Senate has tended more and more to become an acrimonious debating society, while the House has become steadily more businesslike. The work of the last session of the Sixty-ninth Congress furnished a startling revelation of this state of affairs.

The Senate is always hindered by cumbersome rules, lending themselves to obstructionist tactics. This time it is

Senator Norris, Republican, but wearing the mantle so loosely that it falls about his ankles at times, had introduced two resolutions-one declaring that Mr. Smith's election and nomination were so tainted with fraud as to invalidate even his credentials, the other declaring the same and a bit more of Vare. Many vials of wrath, carbonated with words, were ready to be uncorked. If the President of the United States were to be given the opportunity of having his Message read, some such move as that made by Senator Curtis was necessary. Senator Robinson, leader of the Democratic (by self-abnegation) minority, announced that there was no further hindered by lack of a working objection from his side. And so the Senmajority. ate took the wise action of recessing without organizing.

Workable rules and a dependable majority are elements in the greater efficiency of the House, but the will to work is the main thing.

Smith, Vare, and the Senate
FRANK L. SMITH and William S. Vare

-and a majority which is a mere fiction, figment, and figure of speech.

Those are the reasons for the failure of the Senate of the Seventieth Congress to organize on the first day of the session. Without Smith and Vare there is no Republican majority, and the Republicans are by no means sure that they want a majority attained by honoring the credentials of these two men.

December 14, 1927

So, after such brief formalities as the swearing in of new members and the election of a chaplain (there is hope for the Senate in that it is not certain that it can get on without prayers), Senator


Curtis, leader of the Republican (by
courtesy) majority, moved adjournment
until the next day, and stipulated in the
motion that nothing except the hearing
of the President's Message-not even
the formalities of organization-should
be undertaken until after determination
of the question of whether or not Smith
and Vare are entitled to seats in the

Until almost the last minute, it had been assumed that, since the Democrats did not want to do it, the Republicans would organize the Senate. But their recalcitrants had demanded assurances of Senator Curtis which he could not give-assurances that a farm relief bill and a bill to curb the issuance of injunctions in labor disputes would be reported out of committee. He did assure them that he would do all in his power to bring those bills to a vote, but they then demanded that he pledge the Republican members of the committees that would have the bills in charge, and that he protested his inability to do.

So, it being not quite sure that the Democrats would forego the opportunity of organizing the Senate with the recalcitrant Republicans sitting silent, the Senate did nothing-which, as some would say, is its natural gait..

Number 15

Meanwhile, one of the most significant questions with which the Senate has had to deal awaits determination. It is the question whether or not a man coming to the door of the Senate with credentials on their face regular can be denied a seat-whether a State can be, for any space of time, denied representation in the Senate of the United States by the man for whom the majority of ballots were cast.

Before this issue of The Outlook reaches its readers the Senate doubtless will have answered that question.

The answer that is given to the question of excluding Smith and Vare may determine many things in the conduct of the affairs of this Nation in the future.

For Better Conditions in the


GREAT change seems to have come over the tone of the talk by Philippine politicians. In particular this change is noticeable in the recent remarks of Manuel Quezon, President of the Philippine Senate. With Senator Osmena, he has been in the United States on a mission to urge a plan that might be called a compromise between the old demand for immediate independence and the present status of the islands.

Evidently it has at last penetrated the minds of some Philippine politicians that what the Philippines most urgently need is, not more politics, but more business. At present there are no commercial or industrial leaders among the Filipinos themselves. The politicians have found that you cannot carry on a country on words alone. They have been disappointed that American capital has not rushed to the islands to place itself under the whimsical regulation of men who know nothing about business or finance. Mr. Quezon practically said as much in his recent speech in New York. Of course, the last thing that these Philippine politicians want is to have the
