(2 of 3)

I know the man personally and have had dealings with him. When he looks at one with those keen eyes of his they seem to penetrate into one's very soul. His sincerity and honesty and kindliness make one instinctively like him and feel confidence in him. He makes one feel that greatness is the common heritage of man.

It will be a long time before Arizona, or America for that matter, will see his equal as a real democrat.

The man whose favorite poet is Bobby Burns, who loved simple things, whom Woodrow Wilson appointed Minister to Siam, fell a victim in the battle against bigotry, fell fighting, but as great in defeat as in victory. His waxed mustache doesn't matter, it's his heart that counts.

HENRY FLURY

Washington, D. C.

Few of Gov. Hunt's great achievements have been recorded in TIME because most of them antedate TIME. But TIME takes pride in having shared with the Hunt mus tache the honor of making George W. P. Hunt known to hundreds of thousands of non-Arizonians. TIME subscribers have been well prepared to relish Subscriber Flury's able description of Gov. Hunt's unique record and personality. — ED.

Victim of Science

Sirs:

Under Milestones, TIME Nov. 5, page 52, I notice the report of Dr. Albert Schneider's sudden death. It might interest you to know that Dr. Schneider, an excellent friend and collaborator of mine, like Dr. Hideyo Noguchi, was a victim of science. His untimely death was probably due to too much self-experimentation. One of his last letters was written to me on Oct. 25 where lie complained of acute symptoms of hyperthroidism due to self-experimentation with thyroid and parathyroid substance and with some vegetable extracts. He died two days after writing this letter, on Oct. 27. The news of his death was most distressing to his friends and colleagues.

"Telephotograph"

Sirs:

On p. 48 of your issue of Oct. 8 you refer to Hiram R. Mallinson sending his picture by "Photogram" to various silk buyers throughout the country. Undoubtedly, you will have occasion from time to time to refer again to Photograms and Telephotographs in your valuable magazine. For this reason I am taking the liberty to explain the difference between the two.

A Photogram is a communication to the addressee from the sender written or typed in black ink and delivered in photographic facsimile. The rate for this service is only one and a half times the full telegram rate.

The Telephotograph is a photographic reproduction by wire of documents, pictures, drawings or any article or matter which can be photographically reproduced. . . .

Tim Thrift & Wife

Sirs:

Is it because you are prejudiced against Direct Mail Advertising that you failed to record the election in Philadelphia in October of Tim Thrift as President of the Direct Mail Ass'n. and then print the election of Mr. Smith as Pres. of the Assn. of National Advertisers? (As you might know Mr. Thrift has also held War office.)

TIM THRIFT'S WIFE and a reader of TIME and a booster since its first number.
