VICTOR' E. SAVOY HAS SETA NEW FASHION IN
Vttr THE KING BUSINESS .
By-W. C. Shepherd.
Rome, May 31. -This is about an
Italian who found anew way to do
a century-old job. He is Mr. Victor.
E. Savoy and, in view of the fact that
bis job is a semi-public one, he being
the king of Italy, his twentieth cen
tury style of kinging is attracting
some attention in king circles.
There used to be two ways of king
ing. For instance, if you were a king,
one way was to let the king part of
you be the most prominent and let
.the personal part of you run second.
The king bf England is this kind, of
a king. Or you might be like Alfonso,
No, 13, of Spain, who is himself first
and king second.
The King of Italy and his children.
But1 the. new twentieth century
way, developed by-Mr. V. E. Savoy is
to be king and yourself at; the same
time. Maybe this is because lie was
sort of born a king.
He takes his work in earnest A
good electrician, while he works,
doesn't keep reminding himself that
he is an electrician; what he does
keep in mind is that, he must string'
Ids -wires carefully, - ' - - -
And bo Victor Emanuel doesn't
keep on reminding himself that he's
a king; what he. does seem to keep
in mind is that he has' a certain job
to do and 'that he's going to do his
dingdest to do it well.
You could be arrested for cruelty
to children in Chicago for treating a
child the way Victor Emanuel was
treated while he was being trained
iai kuigship. - : .
