There, as in America, there were vast empty spaces to populate, hos tile natives to fight, rich natural re sources to tap. boom towns to be built, opportunities for the daring and the footloose. An outline of the story is con tained in “Russia and Asia,” by Prince A. Lobanov-Rostovsky. a Russian emigre who now is on the faculty of the University of Cali fornia at Los Angeles. It presents a chapter in history with which most of us are totally unfamiliar, and the chapter proves an uncommonly interesting one. Who are the "Russians?” An ob scure Slavic race first seen on the slopes of the Carpathians a few centuries after the breakup of the Roman empire. How they spread over European Russia, built an empire, suffered the shock of successive eruptions of conquering Asiatic hordes, made their empire secure and then spread out over Siberia. Turkestan and ad jacent lands, using tiny armies of 200 to 300 men to conquer half a continent, makes most absorbing reading. At present, the author believes, Russia. d°finitely is facing the east. Despite superficial changes, he be lieves that the policy of Soviet Rus sia is not unlike that of the czars. The five-year-plan, he says, will give Russia an enormous advantage in her eastward drive. The current turmoil in Manchuria probably is the curtain-raiser to an incalculably important swing in world history. “Russia and Asia," is published by Macmillan. The price is $2.50.

Forty-two years ago a ‘‘model boy” of 9, visiting Germany with his parents, at tended school at Bad-Nauheim. In the short six weeks of ciasroom work in the .Nauheim school, he left an impression on the schoolmaster. Herr Christian Bommershein, who today takes pride in having taught Franklin D. Roosevelt, Picsioent-eiert of the I nited States The now aged schoolmaster's impressions are given in the t'ollowing story. BY FRITZ GABLER United Press Special Correspondent BAD-NA.UHEIM, Germany. Feb. 21—" He was a good boy—a very good boy, and utterly devoid of pride, this young Franklin Roose velt” Herr Christian Bommcrsheim. 70- year-old schoolmaster now pen sioned by the government, was speaking of the boy of 9 who sat primly in his classes forty-two years ago. He recalled the boy and the old days a little shakily, but he had nothing but praise for the boy, who scon will become President of the United States. The old man displayed, with trembling pride, a gold pen-case given him by the departing scholar, which, “perhaps as a premonition cf future greatness in him,” he has treasured all these years. “There was a 20 mark ($5) gold piece in it when he gave it to me,” Herr Mommersheim said. ' But of course that w'ent, long ago.” With green efficiency, the keep ers of the Bad-Nauheim town rec ords have preserved the books show ing the Roosevelts' arrival—-Roose velt, James and wife and son”—on May 20, 1891. The son was Franklin, and the family had come so that James Roosevelt could take the “cure.” Bad-Nauheim w'as one of the most famous watering places in Europe. The family lived at the Hotel De L'Europe for a while, and then at the Villa Britannia, near the ca sino. While his father was taking the curative waters, Franklin was obedi ently in school. If he behaved himself with ex treme decorum, it may have been because Herr Bommersheim, on the word of one former pupil, “occa sionally belabored the seats of his students’ pants.” The schoolmaster recalled the Franklin Roosevelt of four decades ago as “a slender boy, but hand some and well built.” “He was unusually companionable toward his schoolmates, and ap peared very gifted,” Herr Bommer sheim said. “I was extremely surprised, I rec ollect, that a young American boy —only 9 years old—should have a command of the German language that was nearly as good as that of his German fellow-pupils. He had decided linguistic talent.” TEACHERS HELP IN PICKINGLIFE WORK Interview Each Pupil,-Help Choose Occupation.
