LIGHT Id Centennial of Famed Writer Will Be Observed on January 15 By\NEA Service HANNIBAL, Mo., Jan. 7. — Oil the night of Jan, 15 a white light, will stream out over the sin-fare of ''Old Mnn River." Rivcrmen will see lUi beacon every night diiriiiR the coming year, rebelling out from (he height of Cardiff Hill. • Its purpose Is twofold: First, lo guide rivennen us their boats pass Hannibal on the twisting, treacherous Mississippi; and second, to commemorate another Heht which first shone nearby, at Florida, Mo., 100 years ago, but whose beams cast a glow over the entire literary wnrld through the writings of Mark Twain. President Roosevelt In Washington, will press a golden key that turns on the light in the memorial lighthouse .in Hannibal. Gov. Giiy B. Park Is to be In Hunnibal that night, and so nre many other celebrities, lo honor the man whose boyhood fn led him to create those, monarchs of UIR world of boyhood, Tom Sawyer and HucV.lebeiTy~Finn. Later' in the year there will be •a pageant and homecoming at. Hannibal, and a bii^ literary banquet attracting, writers of today. •Museum Being Assembled .All through Hie year llicre will bo such events hereabouts as will tend to nourish Hie memory of Sam Clemens, the Hannibal boy who grew into one _pf the giants of Americans letters as Mark Twain. A museum of objects connected with his life is being assembled. - ' The.
