The Letters of Archie Butt
N these pages the reader finds himself living again the days when Theodore Roosevelt's towering personality directed the affairs of the nation. Through the observing eyes of Butt, the great, magnetic, many-sided Roosevelt is revealed in a new light. One reads of his personal habits, his mannerisms, foibles, virtues, his private opinions as to many of his contemporaries, his relationship to the members of the famous "Tennis Cabinet," his never-ending attempts to elude the secret service guards, his entertainment of educators, prize fighters, diplomats, big-game hunters, political leaders and jiu-jitsu instructors. One is transported into the midst of the Roosevelt family life at Oyster Bay and into the very center not only of the official but of the more intimate social life of Washington.
Dying, as he had lived, a gentleman and a soldier, Major Butt was last seen on the ill-fated Titanic, with coat stripped off, standing beside the life boats when the rush for them had begun in the last moments of frenzy. With a revolver in one hand and a belaying pin in the other, he stood ready to strike down or shoot the first man who would attempt to dispute that established law of the sea-"Women and children first!"
His Letters are a real heritage to his country.
BY JAMES WALLEN
RVING BERLIN, music maker for the masses, was captured by the idea of doing something for the classes.
He built himself a doll's theatre, called it the Music Box and staged a series of reviews that are simply quality set to music.
C Irving Berlin says it with music. McDougallButler say it with paint, varnish and enamel. Quality!'
Like the master of the Music Box, McDougall-Butler believe that insomuch as you can't have everything, you might as well have the best.

R. BUTLER writes to a friend: "James Wallen has, in my opinion, no peer as a writer of persuasive advertising copy. You have heard me speak of him in this same light on several Occasions when I visited your office.
"Mr. Wallen does exceptional
work for us and this at a total net cost which seems almost incredible considering the amount of publicity derived from it."
