MASTER HAROLD CHANGKS FOR INTEKVIKW After luncheon, my card was taken in to Master Harold. His nurse came down to report that he would see me as scon us he liad changed. Like his mother, the young man lias bright blue eyes. Like his lather, he looks like a born scrapper. He .settled his broad shoulders comfortably and clenched his lists as (he interview began. Since lie was born on Labor Day, five months ago, I wanted to know hew lie felt, about unions. He would say nothing for publication, but he made an unpleasant gurgling noise which may have indicate! annoyance at the mention of company unions.

When I told her she smiled and said she. could add little to what youthful Mr. Ickes had snit). She did hope, though, that her son might be more friendly; for a few days before she had found, him ripping some of the more vitriolic pages out of a copy of his father's book about the press.
