He Is a little niuler medium height and Is inclined toward stoutness, at which he will no doubt arrive in the near future if he persists in eating strawherries mid cream for breakfast." The article was hy Alvin Rosensweet, one of the Herald's reporters who bad met me in Js'ew Vorl: while, ho was there on a special assignment. But I had no idea that t looked anything like the way he described me. You, yourself, know hove it is.
