This was part of this political tours that he was making. "At Dunkirk a crowd nearly as large surrounded the train, and some one shouted, 'Hello, Teddy!' "I used to think it lowered my dignity to have them call me Teddy, ' the colonel said to his party in an undertone, 'but do you know I am getting to like it now.'".  Page 4 has a small article about "European Women Taking to Aviation Both as Sport and as New Profession".  Page 5 has an article "Mr. Edison Works on a New Device" which reports "Moving pictures that talk, reproducing not only the action, but the spoken words of actors shown on the canvas, promise to revolutionize the moving picture business... is being constructed in the laboratory of Thomas A. Edison..."  Other news, sports and advertisements of the day are within the issue.
