I i:cw endorsed Landon as the Republican "white hone" KERI' BALL ROLLING By this lime, magazine and newspaper special writers \nn beginning to hit, ihe Kansas trni' All the inner Landon council will deny that they were directly solicited, but there undoubtedly were a few nersonal strings pulled It was still all talk. Not a shadow of organization beyond this personal bi". incessant activity of friends. They had never stopped writing to everyone they could think of, Inside and outside th<> state. On. Oct. 1. 1035, Oscar Stauffer, publisher of a chain of Kansas and Missouri papers, called i> meeting in a Kansas City club of Kansas publishers, so per cent of whom are Republican Prominent were Kred Harris, i>r Ottawa lawyer: Jack Harris and 1'red Drlnkerhoff of Hi'tchhiKon ^aud Piltsburg; Roberts, Haynes, and others. BtaulTor was chosen to head an active committee for Landon. It started work Oct. is. sending out letters and literature, mostly reprints of newspaper articles, In response to inquiries. No contributions of more than 5500 were accepted at first, and Stauffer for months used tlie letterhead cf Ills own paper, the Arkansas City Traveler. A booklet, "Kansas, Example of Good Government," was printed "WAIT FOR THE BREAKS" Tlie Landon backers wrote letters incessantly to frineds in other stales, former Kansans in positions of influence in far cities. The bandwagon began to roll of its own momentum. Thus Staulfer and his fellow Landon backers were able to devise a strategy that fitted nicely with the governor's own inclinations. It was "sit back, say as little as possible, and wait for the breaks." An ostentatious- visitation by Hearst and a party of allies to meet Landon at Topeka was considered "a mixed blessing" by the Landon friends, but it did add to the Landon publicity. A women's division of the Landon committee under Mrs. E. C. Little, widow of a congressman, later to appear at the convention as delegale-at-large, -was chosen. W. T. Grant, Jiead of the Uusi- nessmeri's Assurance Co. of Kansas City,' ' became treasurer, to handle mounting contributions. The boom was assured. There remained only ths slralegy of keeping Landon's name,rut of the primary fights in even ncaroy st'ales. The Landon candidacy arrived iit Cleveland full-groomed and 10 lengths ahead of that of any oth er starter. Tlie fact that it was all don in one year leaves gasping tb^ partisans of candidates who have been half a lifetime in public service. It is the sensation of sensational i>olitical year.

In a report by the bureau it was disclosed that while agents with nets were out supervising the eggs and the small fry, other employes sat behind desks with pencils figuring out how many of the fish hatched ended up on the dinner tnble or trophy wall. They found that each of the 10,000,000 anglers of 1935 took about II fish off their hooks. Heart Cornier News Classified Ads. No more chinning MADAM! It used to be said of the Mas.tev Draper, head' of an old time dry goods store, that he stroked his chin knowingly when certain customers walked in. This was a sign to his assistant that they could probably be "shaved" . . . or given the worst of the bargain! Today, walking in and buying the goods for a new dress is wholly without any such hazard. The fabric marked "wool" is just that. Pure silk is woven from the natural silkworm product. If the fabric posed of one of the newer, man-made yarns, the type of rayon is \isuaily named in a sign on the counter, or on the end of the bolt of cloth. And the price, you get out of the advertisement ... no quibbling about that! You read before you shop, and buy just as much as the pattern-envelope calls for. Every day, now, there are especially good buys in dress goods. Have you looked at all the advertising pages today?
