Abbey City editor Smethport Mckean comity pa., thursday june 22, 1033 the smallest Man in a Quartetti is generally the Bass Singer with a voice volume which is capable of causing buildings to vibrate to say nothing of drowning out his three fellow Hai a ionizers. The smallest Frog in a Pond often possesses the loudest vocal chords. A that seemingly Well established Law of extremes seems to apply to railroads. The smaller they Are the More noise they make. That fact is brought forcibly to the minds ears and nerves of Smethport inhabitants who Are forced to endure several times 1 every Day the hell born ear splitting and incessant shrieking it it Shawmut Railroad locomotives As they pass the entire length of Smethport Borough.

Roosevelt to tackle the biggest Job that has Ever faced a president of the United states such doubt must now be dispelled. He has displayed not Only ability of remarkable degree and a wonderful capacity for work but he possesses courage and a human engaging personality which the people Welcome after years of White House frigidity.

It Congress has Given president Roosevelt the Powers of a dictator a the greatest authority Ever possessed by an american president.
