"Find Your Niche,"
is Sunday's Advice
to Noonday Club
"When one man is running for office,
declaring he will cffcmp the lid down
tight, and another on a wide open plat
form," said Billy" Sunday In a lightning-like
speech to the Noonday club at
noon at the Commercial club, "It Is an
Insult to American manhood's decency to
ask a man who he Is going to vote for."
The speaker dwelt on the subject of
decency, saying, "I don't care a rap
whether I ever hold a public office or
not, but I do care whether the fire of
decency is extinguished In me or not.
If some men can break some laws, then
all men should be allowed to break the
same laws, and If some men can break
all laws, all men should be allowed to
break all laws. It Is better to have a
poor low enforced than a good law not
enforced. It should be part of your re
ligion to see that good laws and decent
government prevail as much as It la your
religion to go to church, shut your eyes
and duck your bead when1 the preacher
"Find out the niche you can best oc
cupy and then fill it. There are surgeons
carving meat, and there butchers out in
hospitals trying to operate for appen

business before he became commander

dicated today that the trip might Include
a visit to the Ran Diego exposition. The
San Francisco exposition, to which the
president also has been Invited many

For the third time In American his
tory a president of the United States

Miss Wilson and Mrs. Gait were to
gether a great deal during the fall. She
lunched and dined frequently at the
White House. During the late autumn
she motored occasionally wltli the pres
ident and Miss Wilson.
When winter turned to spring Mrs.
Gait became an almost dally visitor at
the White House. Frequently she went
with the president's party to the golf
course and when the ball season opened
she sat beside the president In the box.
When the president went to Cornish
last summer Miss Wilson invited Mrs.
Gait to visit the summer White House
and she spent a month there,

known Mrs. Gait for many years she

speak of her as being constantly sovght

Friends of the preslaent expressed
their pleasure over the announrenvnt

they felt this new companionship would
give him support and comfort In his
home life a vital need during the. hours
of ctraln over the nation s prob ems.
With the marriage or his two daugh

than a year ago, the president a life had
become one of solitude. His absorption
In official labors began to tell on him

personal affairs his friends and members
of the family welcomed the d.atlnct

health and spirits.
No word as to plana for the wedding

generally Is presumed that Mra Oalt,
who Is of democratic tastes, will prefer
a private wedding in her own home In

the offices announcing the engagement
to a large number of Washington corre
spondents who had been summoned for
the occasion the president and Mrs. Gait
were spending the evening with Dr.
Cary T. Grayson and Mlsa Bone In the
White House parlors.
The news was given out In a brief
statement, which read:
"The announcement was made today

of an Interesting social season for Wash

land at the head of the receiving line at

understood, will take place before the
first of the series of state receptions and
dinners Is held.
