At that time, he branched out into &vo other fields—manufacturing and politics. In both, he prospered. His first political Job was as alderman of Newton, then mayor for five years. Meanwhile, he also had irogressed in the business world, and had become director of several firms, and the board chairman at one. Today, Weeks serves on nine Boards of directors, and chairmans n boards. ' In 1936, Weeks entered the Republican primary for the U. S. Senate.

That characteristic enabled him to campaign vigorously for the election of the man who beat him in the primary.

Not on the order of a big hoop-la sideshow, Just a small stable bo- hind' Mrs. Fonda's modest house. There, at three questions for a dollar, Lady spells out answers on a board by, popping up tetters or numbers with her muzzle. The horse popped into new prominence when police credited it with providing the clue that led to the finding of the body of Danny Matson, a four-year-old Qulncy, Mass., child missing from his home for two years- Thnt's what attracted the rest of the nation and reprc scnted a departure from Lady's n] replies to questions on love and success that usually confront r, , Is there anything beyond the natural and understandable about the 23 year-old mure?
