Al Smith Will Be Elected As Roosevelt's "Spirit" Told Him, Says Hindu Seer Dr. C. C. Braganza Also Foresee Mayor Walker as Fallen Idol When 7-Cent Fare Goes Into Effect Predicts Scorching Summer Starting July 4. By ALIC E -COGAN. Al Smith is to be ths next President, and no less an authority than the late Theodore Roosevelt is responsible for the prediction. The spirit of'the Colonel, it seems, appeared in a dream to Dr. Calviu B. Braganza. "world's foremost Hindu seer," and told him all about it. The "doctor" is one of the features of the G. A. R. Historical Exposition, which opened last night. The seer hails from Boston, where he is the head of an "Academy of Science in Back Bay," and he describes himself as an "astrologer, psychoanalyst, telepathist, graphologist, numerologist, crystal gazer, wonder worker and society's favorite." He claims no kinship to the Duke of Oporto, wnose family name happens to be Braganza. The "doctor ' a native of India and came to this countrv in 1897 with his family mer chant princes, he says to attend the World s Fair. He is a graduate oi tne University of Bombay and holds honorary degrees from the Institute o'. Science at Rochester and the Academy of Science at Paris, he says. His predictions run the gamut from national politics to next week's weather, and he can tell you all the hot rid things you don't want to know Manual's Fniilssl 6 PASSENGERS HURT IN TAXI COLLISION G. A, R. VETERANS GIVEANNUAL DINNER Six passengers were injuieii last Bight when a taxicab in which they were riding was in collision with an other taxi at Marcy ave. and Floyd at. The injured, all of whom were from Brooklyn, were removed to the Beth Moses Hospital, but left after being treated. They are: Meyer Kesselheim. 42. of 18H0 52ri St., injured about the knee. His wife, Rose, suffered contusions. Samuel Kesselheim, 58. of 173 Starr St., and his wife, Anna, injured about the body. Jennie Jacobal, 42, of 52 Morrell St., bruises. Isaac Chipman. 119. of 5110 19th ave., bruises. They were riding in the cab driven by Joseph Torre of 73 Engert st. when it collided with the one driven by-Benjamin Berrenfeld of 524 Powell si. No arrest was made. Dr. Lovs Sees Science Extending Their Span of Life. Doctors disagreed a little last nign: at the annual Memorial Day dinner nf the U. S. Grant Post of the G. A. R., which was held in post headquarters, 489 Washington ave. There were only 20 members of the post present, and Dr. Lewis T. Pilcher. himself a G. A. R. veteran and a former National Commander, said he feared that next year there would be no more than 12 at the dinner. But Dr. William L. Love, former State Senator, disagreed with him. He said that "modern medical science has extended the -span of life of the individual" and told Dr. Pilcher and the other diners that "a man of 80 today is no older than a man of 60 at the time of the Civil War" because of the advances in modern medical science. Senator Love referred to Commissioner of Elections John Voorhies in Manhattan, who will celebrate his 99th birthday on July 27. And he also referred to insurance statistics:, which show that the span of life has been lengthened, to prove his point. Of 327 one-time members of the post, only 50 now remain. The dinner last night was presided over by George R. Brown, the youngest member of ' the poLt and its commander, who is I in his 80th year. The average age of ; the diners was a little more than 84 ! years. about yourse:: just by mentioning a lew numbers. By tubbing his hands over his tur ban of gold clotn and orchid rayon, he can tell you in a second that a 7-cent fare will go into effect within a few months or elf there will be a complete change in the subway zone system. Not onlv that but Mavor Walker fill lose all his popularity with the working classes when the increased rate goes over. He (Joeon't go so far as to predict Mayor Hylan's return to politics) however. "Dreams Are Prophetic." With two or three strokes of his pointed black beard, the "doctor" tells about his dream in which the spirit of colonel Roosevelt appeared. "Dreams and visions are prophetic." he insists. "Any one who doesn't dream is out of sorts." Well, anyway. Teddy Roosevelt came in a dream and said: "The next President will be a man from my State or from my Cabinet." And since Smith comes from the Colonel's State, it is as plain as the nose on your face that he will be the next President. Real Summer by July 4. About the weather well, it took several attempts at numbers to bring out the news that the city can expect rainy, cloudy and unsettled weather until the Fourth of July. Then the real summer will begin. And it will come with such a vengeance that every one will wish It hadn t, says the seer. His personal observations are even more clear cut. It- took but half a dizen numbers for the great Hindu seer to reach the conclusion that this reporter's friends consider her eccen trie. So glad they only think so. Among other things Dr. Braganza claims that he predicted the World w ar in a poem he wrote in ibio, aedi rated to the American Red Cross. He is also the man who advised President Wilson that a League of Nations was bound 'to be the world's aftermath" and he says he is the person who suggested the Disarmament Conference to President Harding. During the war, he admits, it was his suggestion to the War Department that launched the Chateau-Thierry offensive. He said he told the officials that unless they protected their left wing, the enemy would have them in 48 hours. The reason he is certain that Smith is to be elected is because the stars tell him there will be no room for a dry candidate In this campaign. "It will be a long and bitter campaign." he predicts, "and a very close or.e, but Al Smith is the next President. I can 6ee him now in the White House." f RUSH TO PAY TAXES TO ESCAPE PENALTY Miss Jean Smith, Her senior classmates at Manual Training High School have chosen Miss Jean Smith as the most beautiful girl of the graduating class. She is a member of the Arista, honor so ciety of the school, and is active in athletics, having won recognition for her achievements in various sports.
