The meeting of the National Edi

the "21st birthday or coming-of-age."
of the Association. Twenty
one years ago this association was or
ganized in Cincinnati with Mr. B.
B. Herbert, of Chicago as President.
Only eighteen states were represented
at the first meeting. This year al
most every state in the Union was
ted. More than 500 neople
from North, East, South and West
went to Indianapolis to take part in
the convention. The consequence
was one of the best meetings in the
history of the Association.
The Convention lasted for three
days, during which'time the social
features played a prominent part.
The most, interesting subjects to our
N orth Carolina delegation was the
election of Mr. H. B. Varner first
vice president of the National Edi
torial Association an i the choosing
of a place or uieetiug for next year.

VICE PRESIDENT FAIRBANKS ENTER
TAINS. Vice President and Mrs. Fair
banks gave tbe editors and families
a delightful reception at their home
on Meridian street. Delicious re
freshments were served under a tent
in the yard. At this reception sev
eral of Indiana's literary lights as-!
sisted in receiving. Among them
were James Whitcomb Riley who
was once the Indiana poet but who
is now the world's poet, for his poems
are known wherever the English
language is spoken, George Ade who
has won for himself fame as a hu
morist, Meredith . Nicholson, the
talented young author of "The
House of a Thousand Candles", and
by tbe way he bus the distinction of
having given the rest leisou of auy
on why he is ademicrat, and Miss
Elizabeth Miller who wrote "The
Yoke" a strong Biblical novel.
Jut rwe I w-u.t to add that in a
conversation irb avounglaly from
Indiiifii a jentletii.in from Alabama
lemarked that be didn't know Indi
ana was so rich iu authors and au
thoresses, she said "why these few
whom you h.tve heard are a very
small per ceut of what w could
l bring forth. We out number any
state inlhe'Uniou," in fact Indiana
bunches them up as farmeis do rad
ishes, and this is only one bunch."
Booth Tarkintrton perhaps has
been better iutmdaced to the public
recently than almost any of the na
tions authors. , His "Gentleman
from Indiana" was enough within it
self to give' him fame his latest book.
"The' Conquest of Caauaa" is now
one of the most popular new books.
Mr. Tarkington was away from home
(Indianapolis) travelling abroad.
Several asked at the vice president's
reception "Where is Bjoth Tarking

man with such a mind. '
