Tug & Hop


Referring to TIME, April 5, p. 11, under "The Presidency"—col, 1—you mention Mr. Roosevelt's waving good-bye to his two mules—"Tug" and "Hop." Is it pertinent to inquire if these two mules might be named for Messrs. Tugwett and Hopkins?

At least, Tugwell denounced the proverbial stubbornness of mulish tendencies enough to remove himself from the present "monarchy."

Continued success to both TIME and LIFE; two splendid weeklies. KATHERINE F. HUTCHINSON

Grants Pass, Oregon.

P.S. In the event of a 3rd mule at Warm Springs, may I suggest the name "Perk"(ins).
