opportunities whatever have been afforded me since my return from London in July The resignation of Dr Sprague surprised no one particularly in the capital Everyone knew he was not in sympathy with the presidents present monetary program Spragues statement however that he wasnt given an opportunity to talk things over with the pres ident raises an interesting question Rooseveltian policy Does he mean to imply that after a certain point the president refuses to iSs cuss his policies with those who dis agTee with him Just Another Ride Those who talked with Command er Settle in Washington after his flight into the stratosphere were struck with the nonchalance with he described hi3 experiences 11 miles above the earth To Settle apparently it was just another balloon ride perhaps no more
