POLISHED TIPS OF SHOES GUIDE AL AS AUTHOR Smith Gets His Inspiration Gazing at 'Brogans’ on Way to Office. B 1 G. B. WINSTEAD I nitrd Prr** Staff Correspondent NEW YORK. Aug. :>2.—Alfred E. Smith, "the author " gets his writing Inspiration for gazing at the polished tips of his shoes as he rides to his office in an automobile. He jots down a word or two on the back of an old envelope and once at the office dictates his writings. “How do you prepare your articles? ' Smith was asked. "All by dictation," he answered. "I think them out beforehand and then dictate'when f feel like it and have the time." Dictates All Articles The former Governor then de scribed the method preparing his current articles. "I have made a practice for many years to save newspaper clippings. The two bottom drawers of my desk always have been devoted exclu sively to newspaper clippings. "f sec something interesting— something somebody else lias said. I cut it out and put it in the drawer. Then when I go away for a trip I leave orders for a clerk to empty the drawers and file the clippings m envelopes according to subject matter. "When I am asked to speak on ‘water power.' I merely go to the files and look for an envelope marked ‘water powder articles.’ ands have my speech all cut out for me. This has been a habit with me ever since entering public life. “In writing my articles I use ref erences only in the matter of exact dates. I have trained myself to re member events by the years in which they occurred. The exact dates within the various years are obtained by searching through notes and files. Checks All of Dates "fn my first few articles there were a lot of dates and places men tioned. Names of various bills and the days they were introduced and finally became laws, all were found in my private files. I recalled from memory the circumstances surround ing them, and in many cases the ac tual words spoken for and against them. “The Curtis Publishing Company assured me they had experts to check all dates and places in stor ies printed by them. When the galley proofs came to me they had ! checked every one and had fpund not one single error in my writing’’ I IMPftpT A NTf Aswa y s 111 the fast-day rush and liyilUlv I xili 1 j con fusion of the sale, many f___ .

DEBT DEMANDS OF BRITAIN MET BY BIG POWERS | Latest Move Shifts Fate of Conference on Shoulders of Germany, By FREDERICK KUH United Press Staff Correspondent THE HAGUE, Aug. 22.—France, Italy, Belgium and Japan completed anew proposal today largely ful filling Great Britain’s three de mands for modification of the Young plan, which almost wrecked the reparations conference here. The proposal, however, was partly at the expense of Germany, so that Germany at the afternoon meeting of the four powers was invited to hear the new proposal. The proposal was understood to include an increase of 100,000,000 marks Y 523,820,000) annually in Germany’s unconditional annuities, which Britain would receive. The 100.000,000 marks would be de ducted from Germany’s condition reparations. The proposal shifts the fate of the conference to Germany’s shoulders. The "Big Six” powers agreed to undertake the gigantic last minute effort to fulfill the three British financial demands entailing the re vision of the Young plan. The meetings heard both Philip Snow den, British chancellor of the exchequer, and German foreign minister Gustave Stresemann sug gest that in case the conference Fat Man Walks Ten Miles I don’t care how fat you are or how much you hate to get out and walk a couple of miles. If you will take one-half a tea spoon of Kruschen Salts in a glass of hot water every morning for 30 days—■ You will feel so good—so energetic and the urge for activity will be so great that you will immensely en joy a daily walk of several miles— and lose fat. Why will Kruschen Salts make this great change for the better in me—it Is natural for you to ask. Because Kruschen is a blend of the 6 vitalizing salts Nature says your body must have to keep every organ, gland and nerve in the body bouyantly healthy. While you are losing fat you will be gaining in energy—in endurance —in ambition. Your skin will grow clearer and your eyes will sparkle with the good 'health' that Kruschen brings. .Tust try one 85c bottle of Kruschen Salts: it will last you 30 days. After you have taken one bottle the old arm chair won’t hold you any more—you’ll want to be up and doing—you'll enjoy work and active recreation and you’ll sleep like a top. You’ll lose fat and probably live years longer. Get Kruschen at Hook’s Dependable Drug Stores or at any live druggist in America.—Advertisement. THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES !
