The President departing and Mr.
McAdoo and others resigning left
behind a multitude of tasks for
Congress to perform. With
perversity, not without a trace of
irony, Congress reciprocated by
devoting attention largely to un-
bidden subjects, such, for example,
as the peace conference and Wil-
sonian policies, domestic and for
The result is that with barely
five weeks of the session remain-
ing, scarcely no headway has been
made on the disposition of legisla-
tion. When the President arrives
there will be not more than a fort
night of the session left, and it is
fully expected that he will appear
at the Capitol with a demand for

ON NURSING SERVICE
(Continued from page one)
Your chairman of the nursing
service was asked to serve for Ok-
lahoma. These applications are
not made by the nurse herself, but
by the institution or organization
employing her. Applications are
made direct to the S. W. Division,
then refered to the committee for
credentials. If all is satii>factory
the papers are signed and return-
ed to the S . W. Division. The
last week in October and first two
weeks in November were devoted
to a survey ordered by the War
Department to ascertain the en-
tire nursing resources of the coun-
try. Seven classes of women were
requested to fill out question-
naires which were to be examined
by the committee and returned to

the first class received certifi-

account of the influenza seven

!TALK about smokes, Prince Albert
is geared to a joyhandout standard
l/l that just lavishes smokehappiness on
I every man game enough to make a bee l;ne for a
tidy red tin and a jimmy pipe—old or new!
Get it straight that what you've hankered for in
pipe or cigarette makin's smokes you'll find aplenty
in P. A. That's because P. A. has the quality!
You can't any more make Prince Albert bite your
tongue or parch your throat than you can make a horse
drink when he's off the water! Bite and parch are cut
out by our exclusive patented process 1
You just lay back like a regular fellow and puff to beat
the cards and wonder why in samhill you didn't nail a
section in the P. A. smokepasture longer than you care
to remember back!
Buy Prince Albert everywhere tobacco is told. Toppy red bagg^
tidy red tint, handsome pound and half pound tin humidors—and
—that clever, practical pound crystal glass humidor with sponge
moistener top that keeps the tobacco in such perfect condition.
