McNutt's Home-Coming


TIME underrates slightly Paul McNutt's home-coming in the eyes of Hoosiers. To us he was a conquering hero come home, king for a day, featured profusely by the three city papers (two of which are Republican). And why not—on a hot day when there's nothing else to talk about ! Synthetic ballyhoo still doesn't blind Indiana's majority to the shallowness of our self-satisfied Adonis.

Just right was TIME'S reception crowd.

Just right was TIME'S associates and backers of McNutt. . . .

Just right. Nice going.
