"Vho' thla Louis Lechner who w.ints us to make peace right off the bat. without waiting: to find who'll get the worst of It?" "He's a lot of things besides be ing one of these fierce pacifists that are ready to sacrifice a few little countries like France and England and Belgium and the U. S. A. to a nice German peace. Wrote a book once called Aggressive Pacifism. That must be the sort the Kaiser wants to get for himself." -What else has he been busy at?" "He used to direct a chorus of Germans at Madlaon. Wis. Called the Mannerchor. No. they don't seem to be singing together Just now. they are busy In other ways, very likely. Pacifists and German singers are not going around pub licly together Just at present." "What's his real business?" "He talks. Talks for peace so cieties and founds clubs and secre taries, if I can coin a verb, for alumni associations out in Wiscon sin." Does It keep him busy?" "Well, he took time oft to go on the Ford Peace Mission. But you don't see Ford's name coupled with his these days. Henry is helping our government, now we are fight ing. But then Henry's father and mother were Americans, and much as he loves peace, he knows where to call a halt." "Weren't this Mr. Lochner's par ents Americans?" "His father's name was Frederick Lochner and his mother's was Maria Von Haughnitr." "They sound like German names.'' "So they do.

Clad In snowy linen coat and trousers, a flat-topped, broad-brimmed straw hat set squarely on his head, the President moved at a brisk pace toward the stair way. There was spring in his step. His smile waa genial, his cheeks ruddy with the glow of health. Realizing the vital Importance of keeping himself lit. the President Is ex ceedingly careful to play with his work. Early every morning, long before most Washingtonlans are so much as turning over for their pre-getting-up nap, the President is out In his knickerbockers and off around the golf course. Mrs. Wilson usually accompanies him. A couple of hours later they may be seen rolling into the White House grounds in one of the big cars with the golden spread eagles in a circle on the door panels. Golf, walking and other mild forms of exercise take care of the President's physical health. For mental diversion and rest he turns from the problems of war to Intricate, complex and quite thrilling detective stories. Most of his newspaper reading is done for him by Secretary Tumulty. Thousands of pa pers from all over the country are care fully gone over for news of interest to the White House, and whatever Is deemed sufficiently important to bring in the President's personal attention he gets in the form of pasted up clippins at the proper time. He has cares and worries and burdens galore, has the President, but he isn't breaking down under them. SCHERERVILLE.
