David Ladd Rockwell.
The boy who was mayor of Kent,
0., at twenty-one has grown up to be
chairman of the national committee
sponsoring the candidacy for the
presidency of William G. McAdoo. He
is David Ladd Rockwell, former pro-
bate judge of Portage county, Ohio,
and superintendent of the Ohio state
department of building and loan as-1
service as men. The per cent of in-
crease in the female employees from
1917 to 1922 was 21.3 while the num-
ber of male employees increased only
14.2 per cent.
In regard to the operation of com-
mercial land, ocean and wireless tele-
graphs during 1922 as compared with
the year 1917, the figures show de-
creases in miles of single wireand in
the number of offices operated, but
the number of land messages sent in-
creased 20 per cent. Total revenue
increased 38.4 per cent for the same
period. One third more employees
were reported in the payments of
salaries and wages were 92.1 per cent
greater in 1922 than in 1917. During
the same five years 5,460 nautical
miles were added to the length of
ocean cables, with a reported increase
of 48.8 per cent in the number of
ocean messages.

Ignace Jan Paderewski, king of liv-
ing pianists, who is now in America
for the first nation-wide tour since
his reappearance last season, will give
a recital at 8:15 o'clock, Monday ev-
ening, Jan. 14 in Arcadia auditorium
under the auspices of James E. Devoe
of the Philharmonic-Central Concert
Co. .
Paderewski's tour last year was the
most brilliantly successful ever en-
joyed by a concert pianist. He gave
ninety recitals and was obliged to re--
fuse offers for as many more. He
earned more than $250,000 and play-
ed to hundreds of thousands of peo-
ple, the tour reaching its climax at
San Francisco where a vast hall ac-
commodating more than 25,000 was
packed to hear him. Although some
critics preferred the old charges
against his playing; occasional over
emphasis, an over-insistent left hand
and concessions to popular taste in
choice of programs, all agreed that
he has regained his mastery of his in-
strument in a fashion that is marvel-
lous and that, when all allowance;
have been made, he remains the
greatest of the many great successors
of Liszt and Rubinstein. Paderewski's
three recent New York concerts have
again proved his undiminished pow.
ers both as a pianist and as a popu-
lar attraction.
The Paderewski program includes r
