Governor Smith soon found'that
a governor's job requires something
more than mere ability. Social
duties and a certain amount of dig
nity, polish and culture devolve
upon the governor of a great state
like New York. Such is part of the
job, part of the game.
It did not take long for a man
with the keen intelligence of A1
Smith to recognize this fact. He be

But Smith was a born actor. He

and speech on public occasions an*
above reproach. Such was the be
ginning of “the new A1 Smith.”
The secret of A1 Smith's tremen
dous personal popularity that has
enabled him to be four times elect
ed governor of a normally Repub
lican state is easily explained. It is
because A1 Smith knows human na
ture—not through books on sociol

contact with people. When A1

Governor Smith prides himself on
the fact that he doesn't use “court
of appeals language” in explaining;
his points to his audiences.
The Harding landslide of 1920
swept the Democrats out of office
in New York and Smith went down
in defeat, running nearly 1.000.000
votes ahead of his ticket arid miss
ing re-election by a narrow mar
gin. He retired from public life for
the first time since 1903 and enter -
ed a private trucking business.
In 1922, Smith became a candi

elected. He has held the office ever
The 1922 campaign saw a renewal
of the bitter personal feud between

Paper To B* Enlarged To Permit

bought from the Duplex Printing
Press company of Battle Creelc,
Michigan, a press room and pape *
storage is being erected to the rear
of The Star office for the housing
of the press and paper which is
bought in carload lots.
To Add Many Features.
The Star is embarking on a pro
gram cf- expansion with the ;4so of
issuing an every other day paper
that will be second .only m appear
ance and contents to the larger
dallies. It* is planned to ad i co.: ic
strips, cartoons, fashion hints, news
pictures and other features that
will put the paper in the class with
the larger dailies.
In order to accomplish this am
bition on the part of the editor, a
larger press was found necessary
and one has been bought that will
produce 24 pages, printed, folded
and counted at the rate of 10.000 '
per hour or 20,000 papers an hour up
to 12 pages. Another feature cf
this press is that it will print 2, *,
6, 8, 10, or 12 pages all in one single
section. Above 12 pages it jumps
four pages at a time, printing 16, 20,
and 24 pages in two sections. In
order to get the page capacity and
speed which The Star now requires
on its circulation of 4,400 every
other day. it was necessary to have
a 24-page press, so the Goss rotaiy
is one of the newest designs in its
class and is equipment similar to
that which many of the big dailies
Present Press Outgrown.
The present flat bed press which
printed direct from the type forms
has a maximum capacity of only 8
pages at one time. This press was
bought five years ago and at that
time was thought to be sufficient to
meet the needs of the paper for
twenty years. It has been entirely
outgiown as about fifty per cent of
the issues of The Star are more
than eight pages.
This larger press means a larger
paper with more news, covering a
wider territory, so when the press
is installed and in operation, it is
the purpose of the management to
