Cold figures and fact give little
indication on the surface of the
man —who is next to Franklin D.
Roosevelt as leader of the political
party in power.
Refusing to talk for publication
directly 'because of 'his position,
nevertheless Mr. Gamer in a most
remarkable conversation aired
some very interesting views, pure
ly personal, but nonetheless valu
It is impossible to quote him for
he refuses to be quoted and will
not give interview,, either for th?
daily press, press associations,
magazines or any other type of
publication. He remarks that
when he was speaker of the house
he talked plenty, enjoyed being
quoted and seeing 'his name in
print, but when be became vice
president and a member of the cab
inet, he eschewed making any state
ment on questions of public policy,
gave a promise that he would not
seek the appointment of any per
son to office or disclose any infor
mation which came to him without
the consent of the president. He
certainly has kept that promise.
But that does not mean he won’t
talk “off the record,” and just as
white newspaper correspondents
have found the jovial white haired
presiding officer of the senate one
of the most colorful of personalit

who have had an opportunity to
invade his private office. It is im
possible to attempt to quote Mr.
Garner because the colorful and
picturesque adjectives that punct

quently could not be published any
way. They aro too realistic and
savor too much of the wide open
spaeiou3 of Texas and the he-man
typo of talk for polite publication.
Garner knows a lot about color
ed people, is entirely conversant
with their problems, and has a lot
of ideas about their progress and

Why he has never put them into
action is another question, but in

most startling fashion.
Born in Red River county, Texas
some distance from where he now
lives and where he has been elect
ed to Congress for the past 30
years, Gamer grew up in a section
where Negroes outnumbered whit
es five to one. His playmates
were colored boys, one of whom,
Rube, still lives and counts the vice
president his best friend.
