this story of the conven
tional lawyer who became one
of our most famous poets. Not a
dreaming, unsuccessful lawyer, but
a man with a profitable and impor
tant law practice, important enough
to associate with Clarence Darrow
at one time. A busy man of com
merce who became a writer of
songs and poems, sonnets, essays
and drama!
Edgar Lee Masters was born in
the little town of Garnett, Kan., in
1868. His father was a descendant
of old Virginia stock his mother,
the daughter of a Methodist minister
and descendant of Israel Putnam of
American Revolutionary fame. The
family moved to Petersburg, Ill.,
and later to Lewistown, where Ed
gar was raised in the typically re
spectable atmosphere of small town
He did newspaper work for the
local weekly, learned the printing
trade, and studied law under his
father, who was one of the leading
lawyers in the state. In 1891 Ed
gar Lee Masters was admitted to
the bar and practiced in partnership
with his father. The following year
he opened his own office in Chicago
where he was a highly successful
lawyer until 1920.
But even in. high school, Edgar
Lee Masters was interested in writ
ing and he never forgot his am
bitions. He contributed to the Wa
verly Magazine of Boston and the
Saturday Evening Call of Peoria he
wrote poems for a Chicago news
paper. His first book, published in
1898, while he was struggling to es
tablish a practice in Chicago, was
called eimply “A Book of Verses.”
“Songs and Sonnets” followed, but
none of them attracted much at
tention until his “Spoon 1-liver An
thology” was published in 1915. Po
ems, stories and philosophy fol
lowed rapidly.

A Unique President
hundred and fifty years ago
this month occurred the birth
of a boy who was destined to be
unique in ‘our presidential history.
He whs James Buchanan, born April
21, 1791, in Cove Gap, near Mer
cersburg, Pa., and he became the
only native of the Keystone state
to reach the White House and our
only “bachelor President.”
Young Buchanan practiced law in
Lancaster, Pa., after his graduation
from Dickinson college and in 1814
he was elected to the Pennsylvania
legislature. Seven years later the
Federalist party sent him to con
gress and he served there for 10
years. During this period of his ca
reer occurred the incident which
made him a confirmed bachelor.
He became engaged to Ann Cole
man of Lancaster but her father dis
approved of the match. So when
Buchanan went to Philadelphia to
try a case, the elder Coleman in
tercepted the letters that passed
between his daughter and the young
attorney and persuaded her that
Buchanan’s long silence meant he
was no longer interested in her.
Meanwhile, gossips had brought
Buchanan the pews that Ann was
engaged to another man. When
Buchanan called at her home, he
was received coldly by Robert Cole
man, who confirmed the gossip,
while Ann stood beside her father
without uttering a word of denial.
Later Buchanan wrote her a letter
demanding that fhe return his let
ters and any other keepsakes
he had given her, which she did.
The next day she went to Philadel
phia to visit relatives and there, a
-f':/ ..."
short time later, she died, presum
ably of a broken heart. One roman
tic version of the story has it that
she took an overdose of laudunum
and was found 'dead with a keep
sake of her lover clutched in her
hand. Whatever the cause of her
death, Buchanan apparently was
crushed by his i blighted romance
and took a vow-never, to marry.
In 1832 Buchanan* was appointed
minister to Russia and he is credit
ed with having made the first Amer
ican commercial treaty with that
country. Upon his return, he was
elected to the United States senate
and, twice re-elected, he served
there until 1845 when he was named
secretary of state in the cabinet of
President James K. Polk. In 1853
President Franldur Pierce appointed
him minister to*Great Britain. He
was accompanNB to London by his
favorite niece, Harriet Lane, whom
he had adopted after the death of
her parents and upon whom he
lavished all the love that had been
thwarted by his loss of Ann Cole
By the time he returned from Eng
land in 1856, the Democratic party
was badly split over the slavery is
sue and eager for a compromise
candidate. They found one in Bu
chanan and in the campaign of 1856
he was elected over Gen. John C.
Fremont, the nominee of the new
Republican party.
Buchanan was a statesman of the
old school, who, according to one
historian, “could make a good cam
paign speech, laying stress upon the
unimportant and glancing at impor
tant matters evasively, solemnly
and impressively.” So it is not sur
prising that he should have avoided
any decisive action when the seces
sion crisis came. But despite that
fact, when he left office on March 4,
1861, it was clearly apparent that
what he once called “disunion, that
worst and last of all political calami
ties” was inevitable. Buchanan died
June 1, 1868, but he lived long
enough to see averted that very dis
union which he had feared and had
done so little to prevent.
Harriet Lane was Buchanan’s of
ficial hostess during his stay in the
White House and helped him enter
tain the prince of Wales when he
visited this country in 1860. Years
later the “Golden Beauty of the
White House,” now Mrs. Elliott
Johnson, a widow, received a spe
cial invitation to go to London and
see the prince crowned King Ed
ward VII of England. Before her
death in 1903 she left a fund of
$100,000 for a statue of her uncle in
Washington. It was unveiled by
President Hoover in 1928.
When American troops went into
Iceland, a corps of veterinarians ac
companied them. The doctors have
been one of the busiest corps in that
army while attempting to bring un
der control animal diseases which
are communicable to human beings.
The secret of success is a secret to
most people.

French writer, believes that “as one
travels down the eastern coast of
South America from Brazil to
Buenos Aires, one actually gets the
illusion of approaching nearer and
nearer to France.”
The Capital itself, with its tem
perate climate, its beautiful avenues,
the interest of its people in cultural
and intellectual subjects, is in many
respects a replica of the great
French metropolis.
Buenos Aires is laid out on the
checkerboard plan, the streets inter
secting at right angles. At the end
of the 19tfr Century many splendid
public buildings were erected and
narrow streets were replaced by
parks, squares and wide tree-lined
avenues not unlike Parisian boule

American urbanists

Record Harvest
THE MILLIONS OF ADDITIONAL ACRES of British farmland brought under the plow in the four years of
war, have resulted this year in the harvesting of 12y percent more grain than last year. This means that British
larmera—and victory gardeners—have produced more than two-thirds of Britain’s food needs. This cbmpares dra
matically with the situetion before the war, when two-thirds of Britain’s food had to be imported. This result has
been achieved with the help of the Women's Land Army, of whom more than 80,000 are now mobilized and work­

Like the capital of France, Buenos
Aires is well known for its good
theater. Besides the many local the
atrical companies and musical en

theaters within the city limits, several

since the beginning of the war, made
Buenos Aires their headquarters.
