upon which Herbert Hoover republican nominee for the presidency looked as he peered out from the west window ot this building which had superseded tite old frame structure where he rtarned his Scores of personal friends who knew barefoot lad and thousands ri native lowan were assembling to dp him The man who as an orphan of 10 years had left this little Quaker to find his career elsewhere was the inspiration for all this stir which stretched out before the man at the window Is It any wonder JC Herbert Hoover felt an irresistible impulse to pinch himself to see it he were not indulg ing in a fantastic dream Touched by Sentiment One may doubt perhaps whether Herbert Hoover Is entirely In earnest in his stand on any one ot a dozen political Issues But nobody who watched him at close range as this writer did at the afternoon press con ference or in his evening address can wonder whether he was touched by tha unprecedented reception accorded to him by his fellow lowuns lust a Few

great day in the villages history passed Into the realm oE memories which most oC the 700 odd natives will often recall They will think oE Hoover as he passed again into the modest little cot tage of his birth for breakfast with Airs Jennie Scellers ag he went to pay his homage at the graves of his mother and father atop tbe hill to the eastward and as he set out to find the Old Swimming which proved so elusive that two trips were necessary to locate it And finnully perhaps will come the most impressive recollection of that of the native son as he slowly descended the temporary stairway
