Kansas City Mo Jan 2GW N
McMillan who Inst Juno entertained
former Piesldcnl Roosevelt on his
ranch near Nairobi East Africa
passed through this city today on his
way to New York He has been visit
ing on the Pacific coast
Mr McMillan talked freely of the
Incidents during the stay of Colonel
Roosevelt with him and told how the
former President cast completely
away all political cares
While at my ranch Colonel Roose
velt did not road an American news
paper or magazine said Mr McMil
lan He continually refused to dis
cuss national or International politics
although many residents tho nolgh
borhood questioned him on thoso sub
jects
Jo
I am hero for pleasure1 was his
answer to all When I return to the
I
United SUites I will say what I think
about tho situation
Colonel Roosevelt Is a fair aunt
and not an extraordinary marksman
continued Mr McMillan
Kerinit is a better shot than his
father as Colonel Roosevelt admits to
every one except Kermit He IB
afraid It would make the young man
think too much of himself to tell him
so It does not however take any
wonderful markmanship to hit an elo

We are not feeling the pinch
