MEETING THE CHAMP.
At a very late hour Tuesday night, November
5, supper consisting of fricasseed crow with as
safoetida trimmings was being served to nine
tired men at an exclusive lunchery on the 16th
floor of the Blitzmore hotel.
The guests who had registered as A 1 Smith,
John W. and Bob Hanes, John L. and Joe Lewis,
Paul Leonard and Thurmond Chatham, could
hear through an open window the stifled hum
of midnight over the city, also a distant band
playing "God Bless America."
"Close that damn window," ordered the host —
and he, who had expressed a fervent wish to
"meet the champ", tcok his seat at the head of
He wore a wry face. So did the guests, seeing
"Now," said Wendell, "as we go along, we'll
hear from you guys how it didn't happen. John
W., you promised me if I would make you Secre
tary of the Treasury, so that *you could divert
large federal deposits to your Wall Street finan
cial connections, and to enable you to switch
Bob's bank big patronage, you would swing
North Carolina. But I note that North Caroli
na goes for the Third-Termer some 300,000 ma
jority, and that you and Bob could not even con
trol Winston-Salem, which went hay-wire
against me. And you, Mr. Chatham, did not
even carry Surry county, and in spite of all your
. publicity and fanfare, the Foigers smeared it all
over you. I await your explanation, Mr. Chat
Here the champ-challenger took a huge drink
of Budweiser and glared fiercely.
The Elkin magnate arose:
"Get this, Willkie." He was red in the face as
lie expostulated. "Blankety blank blank blank
with your blankety blank mess. I'm sick and
t'red of it all. I want to go home—back to the
Yadkin to rest, and away from all this."
"Oh, yeah?" howled the chief. "Before you
and the Haneses go back, you want to unbutton
I your pockets. See this pile of bills? We haven't
, even paid Ayer & Son yet for the convention tel
egrams. Get this, you Tarheel Musketeers—
you are unlmbering your check books before
you leave this town. You are going to help pay
the fiddlers. I'm busted. Do you get me?"
- "Now, wait a minute." cried A 1 Smith, spring

"You sit down, Al. You been walking yourself
to death. Your political tissues are atrophied."
Now Paul Leonard joined in the furore. "This
hint about repudiating bills gets me jittery. My
lime and expenses must be paid. Me and the
Greensboro News ain't being slighted. Some
body's commg across. I have been thwarted in
nvy fair tax program ambitions in my home
State, and now you guys are weakening. If I
can't get a State or Federal job, I'll be damned if
I m going to hold the bag on election expenses." i
Now John L. Lewis, encouraged by the rising
revolt, shakes hi* shaggy head and raps for a
hearing: "What about my radio bills and the li
