LAND CONGRESS
MAY GET “TEDDY”
Propopsal Is Made to Invite
Ex-President Roosevelt
Here at Next Industrial
Exposition.
Now that the next Arkansas
Land Congress promises to be
one of the biggest advertise
ments the State has ever con
ceived in an iudustrial way, a
move has been quietly started to
see if ex-President Roosevelt can
not be secured as the star at
traction in 1911.
It is understood that he has an
engagement in Kansas about the
time the congress is to be held
here and it is believed it would be
quite possible to bring him to
Little Rock. The land congress
is a great development enter
prise in line with his professed
ideas of industrial economy and
improvement, and it is urged,
would naturally appeal to him.
Where there are thousands in
the State who differ with him
radically on many political issues,
and others who regard him as of
the circus variety, nobody ques
tions his capacity as a drawing
card. As he will now be free
from the rigid routine of public
duties, it is believed he would
not be averse to paying the city
a visit at the time of the big land
meeting.
