important than ever, it is pointed cut.

free lodging to 320 stranded men and
advised numerous families how to
secure relief, following the latter to
see that relief w'as secured. This year
♦he branch established a Summer camp
for colored boys, which was attended
by 65 boys.
The corner stone of the present build
ing of the branch was laid by Presi

year the branch had more than 1,000

PERSONALITY URGED
IN NEWS WRITING
Society Editor of The Star Stresses I
Point Before G. W. Jour
nalism Class.
"Life and color are being restored
to newspaper stories by the renewed use
of the human interest type.” said Mrs
Sallie V. H. Pickett, society editor of
The Evening Star, in an address be
fore the class in journalism at George
Washington University Friday.
Mrs. Pickett showed the importance
of personal things In newspaper and
magazine writing and declared that the
public demand for such articles gave
Importance to the publications that
emphasized their place In the affairs
of the l people. She advised the stu
dents that those who were making
preparations to enter the profession
should pay attention to personality as
a means of giving greater value to the I
work and that those who were so
equipped would go farther than would :
otherwise be possible.
The Importance of backgrounds also
was a subject of comment by Mrs.
Pickett, and she declared that persons
who were engaged in reporting should
at all times make an effort to obtain
a full understanding of the backgrounds
of dally events, even though the ma- '
terial was not for immediate use. I
The speaker told of some of her own
experiences in general news reporting,
and especially in interviewing prom
inent persons In whom various pubii- ,
cations had an interest, and she ad
vised the class: "You are paid only
for what you do that the publication !
wants."

MEXICO CITY, October 24 The

R. Brinkley, of Milford. Kan., is 1
operating at Villa Acuna, Coahuila. will |
be investigated by the Mexican govern
ment before any action is taken con
cerning it. Gustavo B. Serrano, the new
minister of communications, said today.
"I am not awaie of all the details
of this case, although I know it is very
complicated, involving this department
As well ns tin public nealth department,
end with several internationpl ramifi
cstions,” Secretary Serrano said.
■ One of my first duties in this office j
will be to inquire fully and carefully ]
into the Villa Acuna station to deter- 1
mine the status and legality of the l
matter. As scon as that is done I will I
issue a statement.”
Programs of John R. Brinkley, known
as the "goat gland specialist,” over a
Milford Kan., station were stopped
by the United States Radio Commission
as inimical to the public health because
of radio prescriptions for various ail
ments. He then established a station,
XER. at Villa Acuna. Mexico.
