N11elling And Mistakes
In Identities
Whether President Little and Jackf
Dempsey -would feel flattered or not,
is problematical but in a novel picture
identification contest recently con-
ducted in the University, President
Calles of Mexico, was identified as
both of those people. But Calles had
no reason to feel hurt, for many prom-
ineut Americans who figured in the!

and King George.
Those whose pictures caused the
most trouble were: President Doum-
ergue, Premier Briand, Poincare, My-
ron T. Ierrick, Baldwin, prime min-
ister of England, Stressman, Calles,
Sen. Borah, 'Roxy' Rtothafel, Maitland,j
H. Maxim, Sec. Davis, Al Smith, Irene

LSome of the errors were ludicrous.
Paul' Whiteman, the syncopation king,
for instance, was labeled the Prince of
Wales. Landis, the baseball arbiter,
who was shown in the picture with a
golf club in his hand, was variously
called J. D. Rockefeller, Sr., Bobby
Jones, golf champion ( a young man.)
Edison, Henry Ford, and Lloyd George.
Coach Yost Mistaken.
Even Coach Yost came in for his
share of mistaken identity. Will
Rogers, the lariat and word tosser,1
was called Coach Yost, who has been
here more than 25 years. Jascha
Heifetz, the violin player, became an
actor in the eyes of those identifying
the pictures. Menjou, Valentino, La
Roque, Lou Tellegen and others were
the identities ascribed to him. Hud-
son Maxim, the inventor of smokeless
powder and countless other inven-
tions impressed some as Bernard
Shaw, Anatole France and David Bel-
asco, notwithstanding the fact that,
Belasco has ho beard.
Jimmie Walker, mayor of New
York, and who recently returned from
a trip to Europe, figuring very prom-
inently in the picture sections of news-
papers seems to bear a striking re-
semblance to Charlie Chaplin, King
Alfonso of Spain, Ted Lewis, Houdini,
and Earl Carrol, Vice president
Dawes was called Harvey, Al Smith,
Lloyd George, Baldwin, Burbank, and
was even identified as vice president
Davis.
Stressman, finance minister of Ger-
many fool'd" some into thinking he
was Gov. Green of Michigan Denby,
Stinnes, the late Judge Gary, Gen.
Pershing, Lenin, Levine, MacDonald,
Mussolini, Von Hindeburg. -Irene
Castle, who dropped from the public
gaze quite a bit the last year or so,
became Pavlowa, ,Ruth Elder, Miss
Doran, Mrs. Grayson, and a Russian
princess.
Ever. Lindbergh Baffling.
Strange as it may seem, Col. Itind-
bergh seems to resemble Prince of
Wales and John Coolidge. The Prince
of Wales was mistaken for Prince
Carol of Roumania., And although it!
seems impossible, there were two peo-
pe who did not know the picture of
President Coolidge. Commander Byrd,
the trans-Atlantic flyer fooled some
into labeling him John Gilbert,
Thomas Meighan, and even Irving Ber-
lin. Jack Dempsey would probably
sue for libel if he heard of himself
being identified as Gene Tunney or
Wallace Beery.,..
Some queer combinations character-
ized individual papers. One person
identified Landis and Depew as Henry
Ford, but didn't know the icture of
the real Henry Ford. Someone else
thought Linbergh was the Prince of
Wales, that Chait1berlin was Lind-
bergh, kne, the Prince of Wales, but
thought l aitland, who flew across the
Pacific, Was also Lindbergh. Another
guesser 'made ,Herrick, Doumegue,
but coul place Doumergue's pic-
ture. Clen nceaui, the intense anti-
German was taken for Taft, but the
same person thought Taft resembled!
the Kaiser. That seems to make the
Kaiser andClemencefin resemble each
other. The Kaiser ought to hear about
that at Doorn.
$pelling Also Troublesome.
The spelling revealed on these tests
'was both atrocious and, original, ex-
aminers state. Lindbergh's name
which has been in the headlines in
type of th b-nost conspiciou size had
enough cominations to fill a page in
the student's dir'ectory- Lindberg,
Lindburg, Lindburgh, Lindenburg, and!
Lindeberg were included in the list.
Coolidge's name came in for its share
of mangling. Colridge, Coolridge, Col-
idge w2ere some of the varieties.
Rockefeller took third place with
Rockerfeller, Rockerfellow, L ocke-
fellow. Dempsey secured as varia-
tions Dempsie and Dempsy. Schu-
man-Heink's name proved a horrible
stumbling block for many who
couldn't solve the last part. leincke,
Heinck, Heik were the attempted re-
sults.
Gertrude Ederle was twisted around
to Ederlee, Ederly, Erdle, Ederlie,
Eldridge. .The last one is somewhat
far-fetched. Some had to make Byrd

a winged'creature, so his name be-
