Editor's Note President Herbert Hoover's selection of his cabinet brought many surprises and much conjecture as the appointments were made known. ' Many of his choices were regarded as politically unprecedented. The story of the men and events behind the scenes in these engrossing moves now is told by James L. West. Associated Press staff writer, in a series of six articles, of which the following is the fourth. BY JAMES L. WEST, Associated Press White House Correspondent. Circumstance*, quasi-political and oyjerwise, played a rather important part in the retention in the Hoover cabinet of two men who were appointed by Harding and served under Coolidge— Andrew W. Mellon, Secretary of the Treastiry, and James J. Davis, Secretary of Labor, both Pennsylvanians. While it may be difficult to say just when Mr. Hoover determined to retain the veteran Treasury Secretary, who accepted his first public office at the age of 67, it was fairly generally under stood even before election that the wealthy Pittsburgh banker and busi ness man could realize what some of his friends said was a desire to estab lish a new record for length of service as head of the Treasury. Labor Unable to Agree. The retention of Mr. Davis was some what of a surprise, and what led up to it has only recently become known. The new President had been casting about for another for his place, with William N. Doak, vice president of the Brother hood of Railroad Trainmen, prominent ly mentioned for the place. Mr. Doak would have fitted in as cab inet officer from the South, a section which failed finally to receive such recognition, although Mr. Hoover, as the Republican presidential candidate, split it for the first time since recon struction days. Leaders of the great labor organi zations of the country, however, were unable to agree upon Mr. Doak or any one else for the place and Mr. Davis j was reappointed, consenting to continue ! in office for one year. In that time j he hopes to conclude important work j begun before the change of adminis- • tration. i Mellon Held in High Esteem. During the nearly eight years they served together in the Harding-Coolidge ! cabinet, Mr. Hoover formed a very high i regard for Mr. Mellon. They were most 1 closely associated, perhaps, in the diffi- j cult and delicate task of refunding the war loans to the former associates of! the United States in the World War. Unlike some other members of the Coolidge cabinet, Mr. Mellon did not hitch his wagon to the Hoover political star after Mr. Coolidge issued his cele brated statement that he did not "choose” to run for the presidency in 1928. He went to Kansas City at thb head of an uninstructed delegation and at once became a central figure in the j stormy struggle for the nomination. | When finally he declared lor Hoover, 1 that appeared to settle It. Mr. Mellon made some radio talks ( during the campaign, but otherwise j was inactive. However, he had the confidence of the business interests of the country and particularly of the East, and in the closing and most try ing days of the campaign there was a strong pressure for his reappoint ment. EFFORT MADE TO AVERT “FOOL HEN” EXTINCTION j Commission Gets Supply of Eggs Wrapped in Cloth and Warmed With Hot-Water Bottles. NEWPORT, Wash. UP). —Since the "fool hen” won’t make any effort to save herself from extinction, game conserva- 1 tionists here are trying to do it for her, througn the use of hot-water bottles and setting hens. The "fool hen." a bird of the pheasant variety, sits calmly on her nest when danger approaches and faces shooting | or devouring without making any effort to escape. The game commissioni by- offering a reward for eggs, has secured a supply brought here carefully wrapped in cot ton wool and warmed with hot-water bottles. These have been placed under setting hens in the hope that enough can be hatched to prevent complete ex termination of the species due to the virtual suicidal penchant of the fowl. SHEEP OF UNIQUE TYPE. Wild Flock, White, Found With Black Tails. SAN DIEGO, Calif. UP. —Wild white sheep with black tails were the lure which took Robert, Frothingham Into the Yukon and through almost inac cessible parts of the Campbell Moun tain Range. The former New York magazine ex ecutive succeeded in bringing down with a rifle an old ram of the species for which he searched. The Campbell- Mountains lie ‘between the headwaters of the Pelly River and Frances Lake, which is an unfailing reservoir for Frances River. This dis trict is right on the divide between the Yukon River and the Liard River. g^SSTO?oSTO|NSYj\j^SI QiliiuEeY^rtd'' A motor is mpre easily started with Autocrat Motor Oil, 100% Pure Pennsylvania.

RARE TYPE SQUIRREL IS YELLOWSTONE PET Known to Science ai “Callosperno philus Lateralis Cinerascens,'’ Own er Names Him “Jimmy Hicks.’* i i YELLOWSTONE PARK, Wyo. (Spe- j cial). —Mammalogists study him and : say "Callospernophilus lateralis cine- i rascens,” which, as far as the layman t can determine, means Montana golden- i mantled ground squirrel, but John “Scotty” Bauman, chief of the Tower Falls ranger station in Yellowstone National Park, calls him "Jimmy Hicks.” And being that there are many “Callospernophilus lateralis cinerascens” and only one “Jimmy Hicks.” Ranger Bauman gets his way over science. Ranger Bauman has been an inti mate friend of Jimmy Hicks for five years, and because Jimmy chooses to spend hLs days on the steps leading to Tower Falls and begs peanuts from tourists, the little squirrel has acquired Nation-wide farpe. While antelope, elk, moose, deer, bear, beaver and many smaller animals inhabit the region around Tower Falls. Jimmy Hicks has stolen a good deal of their popularity merely because he will eat peanuts while sitting on a tourist’s shoulder nr in a tourist’s hand as readily as if he were feasting in the seclusion of his den. Jimmy is 11 inches in height when he Is compelled to reach upward for his food. His coat changes during the various seasons, but never his appetite. He Is a committee of one always pres ent to extend a welcome to tourists, especially if the gift of a few peanuts will be the result. On a profitable day, when peanuts are plentiful, he eats whet he can and sidetracks the rest into his two cheek pouches to be carried to his winter storehouse. In these two traveling bags, his ranger friends declare, he can pack the whole contents of a flve-cent sack of salted peanuts. So when the winter winds begin to drift the snows over the Yellowstone Parle and tourists have stored their ears for another Winter. Jimmy Hlrks is going to be eating peanuts in hi* den, well away from the Winter blasts, and he will be laughing at the elements. Ken lays Egg on Air Ride. ATLANTIC CITY.

It was laid by his pet hen while being taken on an airplane sight seeing tour. Drogan claims no excep tional virtues for the already noted (lo cally) breakfast food and will not crack it to investigate.
