I. GLENN FRANK
13. 0. P. Policy Choice Would
' Make a Speech on Any
thing for a Coin.
8* the Associated Press.
CHICAGO. Dec. 20.—Republican
leaders awaited today Dr. Glenn
Frank’* formal announcement that
be would accept the chairmanship
fit the party’s Policy Committee.
A few days ago, following a con
ference with Chairman John D. M.
Hamilton, the former University of
Wisconsin president said he would
take the post if he were able to ar
range personal and business affairs.
Although Dr. Frank has steadfastly
declined to discuss the Executive
Committee's action, it was generally
conceded in Republican circles that
he would accept the job of directing
more than 100 leaders in drafting a
declaration of principles to guide the
party in the next congressional and
presidential elections. Men close to
party affairs said his formal ac
ceptance “can be expected any day
Bow.”
. Dr. Prank, who was born 50 years
Bgo last October 1 in the Northern
Missouri hamlet of Queen City, has
never occupied a prominent place in
Republican politics. But, for a long
Ume, his speeches and writings sup
ported the liberal wing of the party.
Chairman Hamilton said he was se
lected because of “his constructive
attitude toward national affairs."
An Orator Early.
Who is Dr. Frank—this son of a
tillage school teacher?
The biographer's phrase, “At an
qarly age,” applied to Glenn Frank's
aptitude for oratory because when a
mere lad he would mount any con
Tenient platform and make a speech
—for a coin.
But in his swift career from
Methodist circuit riding to evangel
ism, Chautauqua lecturing, writing,
editing and the presidency of the
University of Wisconsin, his reputa
tion for rhetorical phrasing was by no
means the only trait by which the
public knew him.
There is hip immaculate appear
ance. for example. More than once
he “floored” upstate Wisconsin farm
legislators when he appeared before
committees arrayed in the height of
fashion, from spats to boutonniere.
On occasions when he was arguing
for a university budget increase be
fore hard-bitten Senators from the
soil. Dr. Frank was the acme of un
ruffled efficiency, flanked by subordi
nates bearing charts, graphs and dia
grams to support his contentions in
the face of sometimes disconcerting
“brass-tacks” legislative grilling.
Dr. Frank is trim in statute, bald
ish. an elegant figure at full-dress
functions, a cigarette smoker, a cham
pion at verbal ripostes, a delightful
conversationalist, a master of the
speakers' table or platform.
President at 38.
He came to the University of Wis
consin in 1925 as the “boy president.”
He was 38. He had been assistant to
the president of Northwestern Uni
versity from 1912 to 1916, associated
with the late Edward A. Filene, Bos
ton merchant ; lecturer, editor of Cen
tury Magazine (he called the univer
sity presidency a “parole from jour
nalism”), member of post-war peace
committee and an author. Later he
became a syndicated columnist.
The University of Wisconsin regents
ousted Dr. Frank last January after
what many Badger State politicans
asserted was a La Follettee-Progressive
Intrigue to remove him.
Now he edits a farm publication,
with headquarters in Chicago, while
still maintaining his home in Madi
son. Wis. He and Mary Smith of
St. Louis, Mo., were married in 1917
and have a son, Glenn.
When in Chicago he stops at the
Union League Club. His club mem
berships include the Players and Cen
tury in New York and the University
and Madison Clubs In Madison.
Selected now to guide the Republi
can party’s destiny, Dr. Frank once
quipped: “I am a Republican by
ancestry and Inertia.”

DOG MONEY-MINDED
Takes Deposits to Bank Daily.
Hasn't Missed Yet.
JEFFERSON, Ohio, (A*).—’The watch
dog of Harry Sikes' treasury also is
Sikes’ bank messenger.
The money-minded canine is a
cocker spaniel, 4 years old. Name
is Glo-Glo. Every morning Glo-Glo
carries Sikes’ bank deposits to the
bank. He’s never missed yet—and
nobody's ever robbed him.
Sikes puts bank book and all into
Glo-Glo’s mouth and off trots the
dog.
Sometimes he is able to reach
the teller's hand at the regular win
dow, by standing on his hind legs.
But usually Glo-Glo, who gets spe
cial privileges, walks around behind
the cages and puts the bank book
into the hands of a certain teller.
