"Anyone who says that Hoover is
a Britisher, has not taken the time
or had an opportunity to, make sure
of themselves," stated Mr. Newall,
who served as food administrator fo.
Oregon under Hoover's food conser
vation dictatorship. "During the many
times in which I came into personal
contact with him, he would often
show his great satisfaction at beimj
uble to give up interests that had
taken him all over the world, and to
return to America. When war broke
out and thousands of Americans
found that their letters of credit ren
dered worthless, these did not come
to Hoover because he was a 'British
er' but because he was an American.
That he responded ably is too well
known to need repetition. When the
terrible situation in Belgium became
known and a big man was needed to
handle the tremendous problems and
tasks involved. Hoover was selected.

As a matter . of fact, we broke the

driving up to the rear entrance; and
we caught the superintendent in the

of two huge freeier of ice cream. A
sweet faced woman, she is, dressed in
immaculate white, with silver hair
that makes a sort of halo arouna her
kindly face. There was nothing su

she greeted us, and nothing "uphol
