like Mr. Rixey, met The Free ?Leite

us to extend the circulation o

however, be interviewed. When w<
asked him if he expected to enter th

only reply was :
''There's tim?i enough yet t i oonstds
that question. "
He was cjaiilly indrfinite in regar,
to whether or not he would be a candi
date for re-eleotion to the Speukershir.
of the II 'use of Delegates, saying with
a merry twinkle in his eye :
"I don't care to be interviewed. Vot

While Mr. Ryan would not let nil
intentions be made public as to th?
Congressional nomination, it is th?
.pinion of his friends with whom wc
talked tbat be will be candidate.
