that our modern drama has lost a'I

This means that the cast would mouldf

this is all the most fatuous idealism--

Though indicated previously, thej
reasons leading the government to
adopt its policy in the Nicaragua af-j

utely set forth by President Coolidge
and Secretary Kellogg of the State

proving the shipment of arms from
Mexico to the Sacasa liberal forces in
Nicaragua and the existence of Bol-

Without doubt, the government's in-

nevertheless it is true. Newspapers and magazines continually deplore the in-
creasingly over-crowded condition of these sidewalks, due to the ever-increasing
