Victorious purgees shelve administration's neutrality legislation for term. Washington, D.C., July 11. By a vote of 11-12, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today shelved the consideration of neutrality legislation until next term of Congress. By defeating the Pittman Resolution, they dashed the administration's hopes for repealing the arms embargo. Gillette vigorously denied that he voted as he did simply to take revenge for the president's attempt to defeat him at the last election. Both Senator Walter George, left, and Guy Gillette, right, have been in the center of a question mark since it became known that the committee would vote on neutrality legislation today. Both were intended victims of the 1938 [...], and today held controlling votes in the meeting

It is admitted by all that the leaders of the Bolsheviks have made the most effective use of propaganda in the history of psychology. They have anticipated the moral and mental reactions of laboring and farming classes General Denikine's government is making an attempt to counteract the mis-education of the Reds by a very active bureau of propaganda contra Bolshevism. This photograph depicts one of the most ambitious attempts of the Denikine bureau of propaganda. It is a picture 20x20 feet at the head of the main square of Kharkof. Over the rampart of the castle of Bolshevism which significantly includes the spires of synagogues, is climbing clovenfooted, scarlet Trotsky. In the dungeon are piles of skulls, the victims of his evil genius. To the left rides the grinning mercenary of the Bolshevik army. At the lower right hand corner is a Russian peasant in his working shirt, being questioned by an intellectual, whose eye-glasses are ostentatious. Eager to get at the bound peasant is a group of chinese torturers, who, as a matter of fact, are attached to the "extraordinary councils" of the chief cities. Wild-eyed and curious, throngs study this poster by the hour
