More Fascinating Than

Here at last is the true story of Lincoln's
wonderful career. We have Lincoln's story of
how he earned his first dollar, how he once pre-
pared to fight a duel with shields, how he won
a case for his client by his laugh-provoking
story of the pig and the crooked fence. We
are given the fully investigated facts of Lin-
coln's parentage, the truth about the sensa-
tional story of his having run away from his
own wedding, for the first time the famous
"Lost Speech" is reproduced with a statement
by Jas. Medil.

Angina Pectoris

Operations to remove glands at the brain's base and certain nerves adjoining arteries have been successful in curing angina pectoris, the dread disease of the business man. So testified M. E. Dandy, surgeon of Johns Hopkins, before the TriState Medical Association.

These operations lower the blood pressure which has been brought to an unnatural height by overwork and worry. And high blood pressure is the reason for angina pectoris. In California

Perhaps the development of the movie industry in California is responsible for an epidemic of beauty doctors in that state. In any event, the executive officer of the State Board of Medical Examiners in California, Dr. Charles B. Pinkham, has just issued a warning against persons who advertise their ability "to remake the face," and against persons vaunting their ability before the public, including not only licensed physicians and surgeons, but also representatives of all of the various cults. One beauty specialist and naturopath, now under indictment for murder at Los Angeles, has been under investigation by the Board, Dr. Pinkham reports, since 1921, when her license was revoked after she had been charged with murder in connection with the death of her sonin-law on whom she had performed various beauty operations.

In Chicago

The Illinois Birth Control League recently opened an office in Chicago in charge of Dr. Rachelle S. Yarros, of Hull House. An attempt to open a clinic some time ago was combated by the Health Commissioner, Dr. Herman Bundesen. The present clinic charges a nominal fee, and thus avoids the necessity of a city license. It is reported that the legal department of the city administration is now at work on an opinion as to whether or not the clinic may operate under the new scheme.

At Night

A golf ball soared through the night. Stars twinkled overhead, night winds sighed as the ball landed, bounded, rolled up on a putting green unaccustomed to such nocturnal visitations. On the green, the ball moved steadily toward, was swallowed up by, a dark little shadow-the hole.

No fairy-flight nor golfer's fevered dream, this. Back in the direction from which the ball had come, 246 yards over hump and hummock, stumpy little Gene Sarazen, onetime U. S. open champion, grinned and chaffed with many bystanders as he cracked out other balls into the night from the first tee of his Briarcliff Lodge (N. Y.) links. The bystanders were illuminating engineers having a convention, and in their honor, by their ingenuity, the first tee, fairway and green were flooded with day-like light from huge searchlights, from bulbs strung down the rough.

Not every ball reached the green; only the one reached the hole at one stroke. Many were lost. But all persons present conceded the possibility of playing "night golf."*

Wrote Colyumist Phillips for The

*This possibility had already been demonstrated by four Houston Texans (TIME, Aug. 25), who played a full 18-hole round with the aid of luminous paint on their balls, searchlights on tees and greens.

Devereux Milburn, Captain of the American International Polo Team; George Wharton Pepper,* U. S. Senator from Pennsylvania; Grantland Rice, sports writer. These three were last week appointed to serve on a special committee to study the player-writer rule of the U. S. Lawn Tennis Association. The question at issue is: May 'an amateur sportsman write, if he can? Can he commercialize sport by profiting from the literary value, if any, of a name which sport has made valuable? The literary fecundity of "Big Bill" Tilden, national tennis champion, has raised the argument. Hence the dapper Senator, hence the astute poet-reporter, hence the nimble polo player.

"Rain, rain, go away! The Little World's Champions and the Pacific Coast Champions want to play." But the rain was implacable. St. Paul and Seattle got through only nine innings of a proposed nine-game series to determine the Class AA championship, for which St. Paul became eligible when it beat Baltimore (TIME, Oct. 20). In the nine innings played, St. Paul fell upon Seattle 12 to 4. Then the rain fell, the series was canceled.
