It Is hoped that It will be. possible to start theso meetings early in March." That was all,, but there Is no reason here to believe that Mr. Roosevelt budged in any way from his determination to talk sepa. rately and personally with individual representatives of the European debtors on the question of relief. Also, there Is no sign • to Indicate that ho Intends to deviate from his announced policy to link the forthcoming economic conference agenda with'the debts conference.

HESTERFIELDS ? , Well, I can't tell you much of anything about what is in Chesterfields B UT I smoke agood deal, and I noticed that they said that Chesterfield Cigarettes were milder and tasted better; so I smoked a package or two and found it to be true. 1 also noticed that the cigarettes were well- filled, seemed to be the right length and the right circumference, and burned uniformly —not up one side and down the other. I liked the aroma—very pleasing. I liked the appearance of the cigarette—the paper, dead white. The package rather appealed to me. I don't know exactly what it is, but I just like 'em. It's about the only luxury that I enjoy; so I think it's all right for me to have a good cigarette, and I believe Chesterfield is just about the best.

SKETCH OF CAREER OF ADOLF HITLER At the nge of 43 Adolf Hitler, who for a long time was a man without a country in Germany, has attained the ambition of a picturesque political career which began In 1921. He Is an Austrian by birth, but at the age of 43 he went to Munich and enlisted enthusiastically In the German army of 1914, sacrificing his Austrian citizenship. On the • western front he was gassed and wounded, winning a silver war service medal. | In 1918 the Hohenzollerns were overthrown. Hitler was outraged. Ho hated the republic from the day It was born and swore he never would rest until ho set things right again. Ills ambitious campaign began hujvj- bly In the beer cellars of Munich. He talked interminably over tho little tables. Before long his audiences overflowed the beer steubes and In J921 Hitler was the accepted leader of tho anti-Republican movement. Coup Falls In that year he formulated the parly program which emphasized centralized government on nondemocratlc lines. Tho movement had a strong military following and Hitler overestimated Its power. General ISrlc Ludcndorf was one of his closest advisers and together the two attempted u "coup" on the night of November 8, 1923. They declared the provincial government of Flavarln overthrown. The Bavarian authorities pretended to accept this ukase, but Hitler wan soon arrested and sentenced to live ycara in prison. A year later ho wa^/' liberated but it was not until 1018 that lie resumed his activities. By 1930 tho National Socialist party, aa It hud rlirlsleneij It.self, attained a strength I ha I surprised tho old llujy political lenders. The Reichstag election of I hut year brought victory to 107 of Illtlor's brown-.shlrted disciples. In Hucoesalvc elections his strength mounted and In 1932 Hitlor received official political recognition when Chancellor Hcinrlch Bruenlni; asked Ills opinion on u proposal to ertond Pn-slclont von Hlndenburg'a term by net of Parliament. Hitler would not approve the proposal, declaring it was unconstitutional. Admires Mussolini Hitler's model of statesmanship In Preinl.-r Mussolini, and hl» Is a stern program. From time to time he has declared his Intention of repudiating tin- Versailles treaty, the reparations and all other "unjust burdens" which tliu Allies place upon his country. "Heads will roll!" he shouted. In one speech, and tho slogan has erh&'d through many campaigns.
