Mr. Hoover made a decided hit in Latin America Hi* modesty and courte.-y wor. him friends wherever Ir went. Tactfully he avoided the discussion of political and frictional questions. He sought out common grounds in political'and educational ideals and stressed the fraternahsm of states. Commercial and financial relatione, he asserted, should be mutually beneficial, since the tropica and the temperate zone arc inter dependent. In his addresses he emphasized the point that the United States had no desire to make aggres sions on weaker states, and announced it as his pur pose to recognize their rights of equal sovereignty. By visiting Latin America Mr. Hoover has completed his international education. He has met the statesmen and leading citizens of that region and has learned to appreciate them. He has seen with hi* own eyes their rragnifirent cities and ports, their great mountains | their extensive plains and the density of thrir forests. He has ..bared the ho pitality of the people, smiled with them in social gatherings, enjoyed the dignity and courtesy of tbe.r manners, and henceforth ran not but have toward them the attitude of a friend toward j friends. From all this Pan-Americanism should gain much i ,n tbc future There should an era of good will. lhr j suspicions of ignr>r3ni e should give w ay to mutual ron ! fidence and »he irritations of form'r years should be forgotten. President Hoover will ha.e it in his power, i during hi- term or t'rms of office, to bring the Amen i cas together on a common bans of mutual re.pect and fraternalism.

AUTOBIOGRAPHY The American people's interest in biography i* " verj whdesomc sign of thc times. Rraders are evinc ing a remarkably well sustained interest in thc stories of human live*. I think it i* one of thc most encour aging public tastes »c have b'en able to observe in many a year. It has been discovered that a person needn’t be a president or a king or a great general in order to have an interesting life. Every life is intercstng and in structive, if well and frankly and completely told. For. after all, whit wr have to do is to make a life for ourselves, and we like to learn how other- have done it • • • • The best kind of biography is autobiography.
