TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12,1933. IRONWOODDAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICH. F. D. Roosevelt, Jr., Wants to Be •Just Another Harvard Freshman' President's Son Lives Modestly in Far From Swanky Dormitory. BY E. J. CORWIN Boston, Dec. 12—In the dimly lit corridor of Harvard's least pretentious dormitory you will find in the directory of the freshmen students living there a Cohen, a Poley, a. Benecchi, a Koffman and a Pellegrino. At the toot of the cosmopolitan list is the name F. D. Roosevelt, jr. Other Roosevelts have been at Harvard, but few have begun their undergraduate careers there with more modesty and less ceremony than the handsome second son of the President of the United States. Theodore Roosevelt, who was to become President, lived while at Cambridge in a private residence •nd enjoyed the finer appointments. Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was also to occupy the White House, lived at one of the college's swankier gold coast dormitories. But for Franklin D. Roosevelt's son, wheezy old Weld Hall, with its creaking wooden stairs, and its burlap covered study-room walls, is good enough. Rooms With Cousin Young Roosevelt rooms with his cousin, R. B. Delano, on the third floor of Weld in a suite almost monastic in its simplicity. He pays to live in it $220 a year, which is less than half of what it would cost to reside at one of the finer dormitories. With no private bath, he uses a washroom in common with the other students. The Roosevelt-Delano study, light end airy, is equipped only with a large table, two desks, four wooden chain. In each of the small bedrooms leading off the study is a bed, a chair, a dresser. If Freshman Roosevelt wants to go in for refinements like rugs, curtains, pictures and the like, it's up to him to get them. Perhaps it's because the Roose- velts are familiar with freshman life at Harvard that a bundle of bed clothes was sent from the White House to suite 16, Weld Hall. And perhaps that is why Mrs. Roosevelt came down to Boston to shop around for such things as rugs, hangings to match, and a coffee percolator and a bread box. And maybe that was also the reason why the First Lady inspected her son's room to calculate measurements for curtains. He's Truly Grateful In arranging these appointments, by the way, Freshman Roosevelt had better be careful not to violate col- j Davis, big, red-faced, tousle-head- lege rules by defacing walls with jed director of compliance> ^ eaAeA tacks and pins.

A slender, bronzed Fioridian, feted by leading statesmen, the President's son wants to be treated like any other of his classmates who \ live in the freshman melting pot that is called Harvard Yard, and has recently been tagged "Harv- Charles P.

Befnsm Interviews "I want to be treated just as any other freshman," he told reporters. "I don't want anything special because I happen to be the son of the President of the United States. I want people to forget that, and I want to stand on my own." With this conviction, the tall, affable freshman has steadfastly refused to grant formal interviews or to pose for photographs of himself alone. When, at 8:30 on the morning of Registration Day, he bounded from the gloomy portals of his dormitory nattily attired in white shoes, smart brown felt hat, gray flannel suit, and saw a camera aimed at him, he side-stepped like a startled deer, darted behind a tree and' dashed across the lawn. Safely out of focus, but still smiling, he shouted to his would-be photographer, "Sorry sorry I'm not going in for that kind of stuff, you know." And he said what he meant, few days later he appeared at Soldiers' Field with the intention of trying for g place on the fresh man football team. He drew uniform, but as promptly returned it. He had seen through the win dows of the field house that an army of photographers was await ing him.

Ant so, finally, when one of then- sought to snap him in rowing trunks, Oarsman Roosevelt told him: "111 punch you in the nose And I really mean it."

He left protesting bitterly: "I didn't know there was a law to prevent me making an honest living. I'll have to lock up the place and leave it." Isidore Paul of New York, leader of a national movement among cash and carry cleaners to buck the prices, argued that they had not been fairly set, refused to advise the members of his group to abide by the code, was told that the evidence in his case would be given to federal attorneys for court action, | and walked away with a curt '•Thank you." He was applauded bj a sizeable group of followers. Argues With Davis. P. H. McCorkle of Charlotte North Carolina, who protested tha neither he nor many others ha had a say in fixing their prices was argued .with by Davis. McCor kle pleaded to be allowed to carry on at his present prices and the: turned on the officials: "When prohibition came along did you sacrifice your right tc drink?"

The people are behind this. It is not like prohibition. No law can be enforced If the people are against it When they see how this is being fairly enforced they will continue to be for it, and the fellow who opposes it will get squeezed." McCorkle read a telegraa he had sent to Hugh S. Johnson, piotesting without result against the 85 cents fixed as base minimum price for hit area, and Davis tried to persuade him that if he obeyed code terms his plea would have force. Risking Whole Future. "When a lawbreaker makes a plea It has no force with me, or With General Johnson, because nobody here. Is afraid of lawbreakers," Davis said.
