Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 8 "Brer Teddy
Bear," otherwise Col. Theo. Roosevelt,
win be the principal figure In today's
observance ot "Uncle Remus" day in
Atlanta. When he speaks tonight "at
the auditorium, paying tribute to the
memory of the late Joe Chandler Har-
rls, he will doubtless be greeted by
one of the largest and most represen
tative audiences ever present at a
lecture in the South. Hundreds of the
leading men of the south and many
from other sections of the country
united In a common love for the mem
ory, of the Bouth's greatest humorist
hare come to Atlanta today to take
part in the- movement which has for
Its purpose the raising of a fund for
the purchase of the home of Uncle R.e-
mus in the West End as a permanent
memorial to the author, . V
Col. Roosevelt and Joel Chandler
Harris entertained a high regard for
each other ana many were the appre
ciative letters .: that 1 nassed between
'them. Quiet, retiring and almost bash
ful, Uncle Remus' seemed to find in
the strenuous statesman the comple
ment of his own nature, while "Ted
dy" was always eager to go far out of
his way to meet ,tbe Georgia author.
The two men never missed an oppor
tunity of meeting, and. they always
parted regretfully. When "Uncle Re
mus" passed away he had no more sin
cere mourner than Col. Roosevelt, and
the latter, in his address tonight, will
speak words of love and admiration
that some straight from the heart.
Mr. Roosevelt received the invlta
Hon tft address the "Uncle RemuB"
memorial day meeting before his re
turn from his trip abroad, and lmme
diately cabled his acceptance.
