PUBLICITY ITCH LAID TO LEWIS BY YALE PAPER Sinclair Likely to ‘Go Out and Bite a Dog’ Next, Says Editorial. Jty United Press NEW HAVEN, Conn., May 22. Sinclair Lewis may be expected at any moment to "go out and bite a dog," the Yale Daily News said today in an editorial entitled "Kis Own Press Agent.” "Sinclair Lewis, 1907, rapidly is becoming our most notorious writer, if not our best,” said the News. "Judging by the publicity his antics have received lately, one might say he had an irrespressable fondness for the front page. At any minute now we expect him to go out and bite a dog. "The episode last Saturday in the Sterling library was even more wonderful than his recent face-slap ping tiff with Dreiser.” Lewis charges he offered the Yale library the "permanent loan” of his Nobel medal, but that the univer sity officials were uninterested.

PAUL, May 22.—A blunder in flag etiquet caused 300 persons to wait an hour for their dinner at the Athletic Club here. The guest of honor was Friedrich W. von Prittwitz und Gaffron, Ger man ambassador to Washington. Just as dinner was about to be served, Alexander von Wuthenau, secretary of the German embassy, discovered that the old imperial flag of Germany was hung above the speakers’ table, instead of the German republic’s flag. The hosts phoned frantically to hotels, clubs and flag dealers, but could not find a one of the new flags. Finally, it was decided to remove the imperial flag and go ahead with the dinner. jIV /!> |-‘' v. X J B n Air mJ | Porch ~ O :l.r. >■ Ho-mr j sunroom.
