T

TAFT, William Howard, a former fat, and last Republican,
president of the United States who worshipped the trusts, the

another ran away with the election. Principal events during
T.'s administration: Roosevelt's trip, The Outlook, Oyster Bay,
Standard Oil, That election.  Ambition:  1916.  Recreation:

footlights might always shine upon and upon whom the curtain

rich son of a wealthy father.  Became interested in the stage
at an early age, but only got as far as the chorus.  Later

Straightening jackets.  Address:  See this morning's paper.

not an actress.



TIME, Father, a very old man who has been introduced to
everybody.  Very unpopular with the ladies.  A great wound and

TOM, Uncle, an old negro actor who appeared in every city,
town, village, and hamlet in the United States north of the
Confederate States.  His history was written by Mrs. H. B.
Stowe, and was the match which kindled the Civil War.  The
Northerners have since learned that all negroes are not Uncle
Toms, and are wondering whether any mistakes were made back in
1861.

bought post-cards, read Baedekers, visited Cook's office, rode
