GOVERNOR AND ilRSL W. P. HOBBx
VJ make an ideal couple. The gov
ernor is slow of action a good lis-
tener. Mrs. Hobby is quick as a flash
and a good talker.
The governor can make a speech
and a good one. but he Is not given
to making long ones and. he'd rather
listen. He enjoys a good speech by
someone else because he loves ora
tory but he enjoys it most because
of what he 'gets out of IL One of the
secrets of the success of W. P. Hobby
is that he is a good listener in that
he Is a good politician. As a mixer.
he Is not a good politician for the
governor is not one of those "molasses
handshakers" they turn out so fre-
quently In Michigan. '
Mrs. Hobby oh the other hand is a
mixer every inch of her. There are
not so many inches of her. for she Ss
relatively a small woman but she is
fully alive which means that there
Is always considerable activity and
much life and animation In the imme-
diate vicinity of Mrs. Hobby. Accus-
tomed to public life since she was a
girl much of it in Washington for
her father congressman Samuel B.
Cooper was one of the leading mem-
bers of the lower house of congress
for many years she Is at home any-
where in a ball room at a dinner
party or in a political gathering. She
Is vivacious an Interesting talker and
has personality and a lot of it.
Mrs. Hobby the Politician.
Of the two. one would Immediately
say that Mrs. Hobby is the politician
of the family. If she had been a man
she would have been a congress man
or a governor or a" senator or some-
thing. Being a mere woman she must
be content to be the wife of the gov-
ernor of Texas. She Is not at all "stuck
up" and puts on no airs but is as dem-
ocratic as If she had never peeked
Inside a gubernatorial mansion much
less the White House and she has a
wonderful faculty for remembering
faces and names. Mrs. Hobby is the
sort of a woman who makes friends
of acquaintances and then holds her
friends. As an asset to a politician
one would say she Is worth her weight
in almost any sort of coin.
The governor holds his friends too
ypu have to make and hold a lot of
friends to be elected a governor you
know but he Is. perhaps slower to
attract them than is Mrs. Hobby. The

On the contrary he said: T have been

President Wilsons forthcoming
sturaping tour of the country Is the
most extensive he has taken since ne
entered public life. He will trav.l
more than 10.606 miles and cover the
distance in 2S days making at least
20 speeches though the back platform
talks not already scheduled will prob-
ably increase the total number.
The white house offices looked
something like a 'railroad office on
the morning of an excursion today
only instead of passengers there were
members of congress beseeching of-
ficials to change the itinerary to in-
clude stops in their respective states.
Literally hundreds of invitations
have been received. Not only is there
a desire to hear what- the president
says to the senate with respect to Is
fight for ratification of the peace
treaty but there Is evidently a wide-
spread interest In seeing the president
himself who has not been across the
country since the spring of 191C when
he campaigned for preparedness.
California Is Intensely interested in
the president's visit and senator Phe-
lan was at the white house urging ss
many stops In California as the of-
ficials could sQoeez-e Into the itin-
erary. The itinerary will probably be
this: The president speaks at Colum-
bus on Thursday night and Indianap-
olis the next day. then St Louis.
Passing northward through Chicago
he touches Milwaukee. St- PauL Min-
neapolis and points In North Dakota
He speaks at Spokane and Seattle
and Portland. Ore. m comes -down
