sador from Iceland. Have you heard about Harold Edmons? They say he's a second
Billy Sunday and attracts huge crowds to his evangelistic services. He's scheduled to
appear at the Opera House. Have you seen that book of poems by Laura Mercer?
Critics say that she is one of the few modern poets whose works will live. I heard a talk
over the radio by Kenneth Snyder, who is famous as a big game hunter. He's been in

ferred blonde, is still breaking men's hearts. I heard, too, that David Melampy is a.
cow puncher on the Bar X Ranch in Nevada. Did you know that Irene Loer turned
