wide radio hook-up to carry his
words into all parts of the coun
try. Various other goyernment offi
cials and political friends dropped
in upon the general headquarters
of the candidate before he closed
his desk for the week-end, includ
' log Commissioners Sandberg and
Myers, who laid before him the
shipping board's views on mer
chant marine matters.
Smith Declared Weak
R or aback urged the nominee tq
. ricit Connecticut during his trip
into the New England states. He
. brought the riew that the wet ele
ment in Connecticut was "not as
strong as some people think," and
declared that "the' Connecticut
people are realizing that the pro
hibition promises of Governor
Smith are not very substantial."
"Before the end of the cam.
paign," the Connecticut man said,
"they will come to a realization
that be does not premise any-
" thing; One man cannot influence
a sufficient number of states to
alter the constitution."
Roraback said that the domi
' nant issue of the campaign in his
state would be tariff.
ti The people of Connecticut will
not trade prosperity for a glass of
beer, he said.
Massachusetts Said Safe
Prince declined to reveal the
nature of his conversation with
Mr. Hoover, but ventured the pre-
. diction that Massachusetts would
. be found in the republican col

Taber, asserting that the rural
dl8tricta of up-state New York are
try, considered the farm prob

binge the totes of that section of
the state. Mr. Hoover's declare-
- tions upon farm relief were satis
factorily received there, he said-
Senator Watson, of Indiana, who
called upon the candidate with
Leslie M. Shaw, former secretary
of the treasury, told the candidate
that the Hoosier state would be
safely republican this year.
"Nothing more than a political
revolution can upset the over
whelming margin by which Indi
ana is republican," the senator
said, "and there is nothing of that
sort in sight." f

ler's childhood days read like a
fairy tale. Born of poor Dutch
parents, his early musical train
ing was limited. At the age of
five he participated in a piano re
cital which 'was attended bv an
emissary of the queen. News
came back to her majesty of the
lad's ability. An invitation
brought him to court where he
played for professors of -the Paris
conservatory. They were amazed
by the child's genius and talent.
Through the qneen's generosity
Ziegler was sent to Paris, Rome,
and London; in fact to all of the
famous European music centers.
During the past few years he
has been invited to play before
nearly all of the principal royal
families of Europe.

Hare you ever undergone the
harrowing experience of leaving
"John's" last passionate epistle in
a particularly engrossing cnapter
of "Heart 'Throbs" or whatever
novel you had been reading and
had just returned to a stern-appearing
individual presiding at the
desk in your Carnegie library?
V Only those who have actually
done this sort of j thing will know
the peculiar feeling attendant
upon such carelessness. You

your letter, for you felt that such a

the practice of depositing ten dol

Only a short time ago she rushed
frantically into the reading room,
hastened up to the desk and de
manded her money. Her bill had
been found by an attendant who
was by this time rather familiar
with the woman's peculiarity, and
