MAKING GOOD AS
In Office Only Three Months, Mrs.
Ruth Owen Is Doing Good
Job Of It.
Washington.—Between her fifth
and her ninth year, little Ruth
Bryan used to come onto the floor
of the House with her famous
father. There are congressmen and
capltol employes who remember it.
Just the other day, eight-year-rid
Helen Rudd Owen, the granddaugh
ter of William Jennings Bryan and
daughter of Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen,
made her own first visit to the floor
beside her mother who is now for

the house into the Democratic nom
ination for the presidency in 1896.
When he came to conress from Neb-,
raslca no one expected that he was
going to do that?, But Mrs. Owen
has only been IWre three months
and there are a great many per
sons, especially in Florida where it
counts, who expect that she will at
least some day step from the house
to the senate.
Making Good Record.
Mrs. Owen is ‘ giving a perfectly
swell demonstration of how to be a
good congressman. Instead of mak
ing the mistake of plunging into na
tional issues and grabbing limelight,
she has been plugging away to get
everything the constituents in he:
district, which covers Miami and the
rest of the Florida east coast, wane
and ought to have.
She introduced two innovations, to
1. She maintains an office at
Vero Beach, midway between the
district’s north and south extremi
ties, where Walter Buckingham
serves as resident secretary and
liaison officer between Mrs. Owen
and the constituents. When con
stituents want to talk things over
and can t get to Washington they
go to Walter.
2. She is about tc keep her
campaign promise to make reports
in each' county of her stewardship.
Its going to warm this sum
mer, but Mrs. Owen plans nearly
a hundred speeches in fulfillment
of the promise.
She can talk lengthily, one

fertilizer costs of $25 and more

Until now there hasn’t been any

Man For Governor
Convention Stirred To Rousing
Pitch Of Enthusiasm.
Roanoke, Va.—Dr. William Mose
ley Brown, 35-year-old Washington
and Lee university professor, was
selected by Virginia anti-Smith
Democrats to lead them in their ef
fort to wrest control of state offices
from the Democratic party and re
pudiate Democratic leaders who
supported Alfred E. Smith for the
Nominated for governor by ac
clamation at the close of the anti
Smith convention, Dr. Brown came
through the crowded auditorium to
the platform and in a short address
pledged himself to a vigorous cam
paign under the anti-Smith banner.
“I have never been one of those
who feared to champion a righteous
cause, whatever the consequences
to my personal fortunes or future
career,” Dr. Brown said.
“For right is bound to triumph
and those who are condemned as
ignominious and fanatical disturb
ers of the established order of
things will tomorrow, I believe, be
hailed as the pioneers of a new era
in the history of humanity.”
Capt. C. C. Burkeley, of,Newport
News, was named anti-Smith nomi
nee for attorney general. No one
was nominated for the third state
office to be filled, that of lieutenant
governor, but the anti-Smith execu
tive committee of 10 was authorized
by resolution to select a candidate
later if deemed advisable.
After a day in which Democratic
leaders, both state and national,
were denounced by word of mouth
and in the platform, the conven
tion, on motion of J. F. Byers, of
Alexandria, provided for the ap
pointment of a committee with
headquarters in Washington to co

other states seeking the furtherance
of the principles of the anti-Smith

FOILS PLAN OF ROBBER
Atlanta.—Postoffice records here
show how to fool the holdup man.
“It was late,” said the worker
whose faith in Uncle Sam saved
him a week’s wages. “T was walking
towards home down a quiet street.
I saw a man approaching down the
other side of the street. He crossed
to meet me and I knew something
was up. My weekly pay envelope
and my expensive watch were in my

glimpsed a mail box out of the tall
of my eye. It looked good to me, so
I snatched pay envelope and watch
out of my pocket and dropped them
in the box. He thought I was mail

ing his luck after the stick up.”
Congratulations were in order at

over to its owner.
Dry New York?
New York.—Rev. Dr. Christian F.
Reisner, Methodist, believes New
York is one of the "cleanest, fines;
and dryest cities in America and a
million times better than before pro
lake has been kept at a high level
by tributary streams and. says
Mrs. Owen, something must be done.
Your correspondent asked Mrs.
Owen whether anything in partic
ular had occurred to her about
congress in the last three months.
"Sometimes during the cam
paign,” she answered, "people
wondered whether a woman might
not strike difficulties here. They
had the idea that an atmosphere
existed in congressional committees
which might cause a woman not to
want to appear before them; that
committees, in fact, were accustom
ed to drinking, smoking and play
"But as far as dignity and con
duct are concerned, one can com
pare congressional committees with
the Christian Endeavor or the su
preme court. I have spoken before
several committees and I have yet
to find anything in Washington
which tends to handicap a woman
member of Congress.”
So much has been written about
the personality of the gentlewom

marks are unnecessary. She lias
more or that than she will ever
