Mrs. Warren G. Harding, whoso eocdttlon Is the subject of frequent
bulletins from her sick room In . the White House.
(Continued From Pass One)
received and was promptly denied at
the White House. At 9:25 "p. m. a
report that a New York newspaper
had announced the death t of Mrs.
Harding reached the White House and
was likewise officially denied.
There was little the corps of five
doctors and two nurses could do except
watch they and the haggard, sorrow
bowed gray-haired husband, who, with
clenched lips, paced from room to room
and in and out of the sick chamber.
The only word that came from the
executive mansion ws that borne by
the constant stream of callers. There
was nothing upon which the doctors
could base a bulletin, even to appease
the demand for news of the sick
woman's condition, a demand which
by every known means of communi
cation was made upon the executive
office all through the day.
Dr. Sawyer, the Hardings' physician,
announced there would be no bulletin
before 8 p. rru
Callersi who Included Speaker Gillett
of the house of representatives. Sena
tor Watson and other officials, took
away with them- some of the air of
deep concern which shrouded the White
Former President and Mrs. Wood-
row Wilson motored to the main en
trance of the White House t about 4
o'clock this afternoon and inquired aa
to the condition of Mrs. Harding. They
were told that she was resting easily
at that time, but that there was no
decided change in her condition. Both
the former president and Mrs.' Wilson
expressed sympathy and, leaving their
card s, - drove off. '
Mr. and Mrs. Wilson cancelled their
standing Saturday reservation at a
local theatre and were not present at
the evening" performance as is their
custom. . This Is the first Saturday
evening performance they have missed
for many weeks.
The deep sorrow which the entire
nation feels -and the -sympathy of men
and women in every walk of life were
expressed in thousands of telegrams
which kept coming to the executive
office during the day.
The citisens of Marion, Ohio, where
Mrs. Harding was generally known
and beloved before she moved into
Washington officialdom at the side of
her husband, poured out their deep
sympathy in messages -that seemed to
throb with human feeling.
Word was received at the White
House late in the day that Dr. Charles
Mayo, famous surgeon, on Jkta wy
from Rochester;. Minn., would arrive
about 10 o'clock Sunday morning. Thft
gave rise to theNbellef that a surgical
operation had ben decided on aa a
necessary measure. No such decision
has been reached, it was learned, bow
ever, and no operation wUl, 'be per
formed except in case of utmost need
and as a last resort. A final decision
on this point may be made tomorrow.

after the physicians see how Mrs.
Harding comes through the night.
The decision to issue no more iulle
tins before 8 p. m., announced by Dr.
Sawyer early in the 'aMernooW was
taken to indicate that thr physicians
did not expect any radical Chang in
her condition for some time.
The corps of doctors attending Mrs.
Harding was augmented today by ar
rival of Dr. George T. Harding Jr.
brother of the president- He, with
Doctors C. E. and Carl Sawyer, Joel
Boona of the presidential yacht May'
flower, and Dr. John Kinney of Bal
timore, carried dn a ceaseless fight
to subdue the poisons which menaced
Mrs. Harding's life.
A call for special prayers in homes
and churches for the early recovery
of Mrs. Harding went out late in the
day from the headquarters of the
Veterans of .Foreign Wars here. Col
onel. T. Li. Huston, commander in chief.
dispatched the following message to
all commanders of the organization :
"Please get word to all local posts
and members in your department urg
ing that requests e made for special
prayer in churchos r nd homes on Sun
day for the early return to health of
Mrs. W. G. Harding and in addition
special prayers will be offered in all
post meetings until her, recovery. '
Among the many enterprises which
taxed Mrs. Harding's strength, none
has been closer to her heart than her
work among the disabled veterans,
many of ; whom are members of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars.
All official business at the White
House was halted today, so far as the
president was concerned. Maintaining
in Mrs. Harding's presence an air of
cheerfulness and . confidence which he
did not feel, the president, when away
from her side, showed in his restless
pacing and the higgardness of his face
how the strain was telling on him.
Watchers at the bedside observed how
both Mr. and Mrs. Harding sought to
cheer the others by maintaining a
cheerful and undiscouraged front.
Mrs. Harding's strength of will al
ways has been one of her chief char
acteristics. It has carried her through
many crises and in what may prove
the last grave crisis of her life, she
has a firm grip on herself and is her'
self leading the figit for life.
Callers told how, last night, in char
acteristic fashion, . Mrs. Harding
thought of the comfort of others. ; Dr.
Kinney, the Baltimore specialist, had
Just arrived. Turning to the presi
dent, Mrs. Harding asked him whether
he had arranged for an automobile to
take the doctor back to the station.
She thought he was returning at once
to Baltimore.
v The usual stream of visitors found
their entrance to the executive mansion
barred today. It was Mrs. Harding's
order which opened the White House
grounds and the state apartments to
the public as soon, as she moved in.
It was .her illness which today re
moved the privilege she had extended.

To a little Oregon miss must go the
premier honors in mountain climbing
Miss Jeanette Sykes, pretty 12-year-old
girl of Salem, who with her father,
Horace Sykes, deputy state fire mar
shal, accomplished the difficult ascent
of the slopes of Mount Rainier in the
record time of 12 hours.
The party left Paradise Inn, eleva
tion 6557 feet, at 2 o'clock the after
noon of August 29, and arrived at
CaYop Muir, an altitude of 10.000 feet.'
about 7 o'clock the same evening. They
rested there for the night, and were
up again next morning at 3 a. m.
and continued onward up the moun
tain., arriving at the summit. 14,408
feet, at 9 :20 a- m.
"We ran into one snow storm dur
ing our climb," said Sykes, "and were
bothered somewhat by the cold winds
that swept the mountain slope. The
great altitude affected some a little,
but did not bother Jeanette in the
least, who was remarkably free from
Miss Jeanette's trip was the result
of a promise made her by her father
that he would take her mountain
climbing some time during the year.
She is very anxious to become a Ma
zama, arid her father, who is a mem
ber of that order, feels that she has
fulfilled requirements necessary for
membership. Sykes attributes, in part,
his daughter's wonderful endurance on
the trip to-the training . she has . re

in which she has taken for the past six
