Is Confident Hell Win Election
White House Candidate
Called 'Brilliant Student'
If and when Wendell Willkie is
elected to the presidency there is
at least one person in State Col
lege who won’t be surprised.
He is gray-haired William A.
Broyles, professor of agronomy
education, who taugh Willkie zool
ogy in high school at Elwood ’way
back in 1909.
“He was a brilliant student even
then,” Professor Broyles recalled.
“All of the Willkie children were
excellent students. There were
six of them.”
• .Nor will Mrs. Broyles be sur
prised if Willkie becomes the next
tenant of the White House.
“If Wendell Willkie becomes a
great man—-just like every other
great man he will owe it to his
mother,” said Mrs. Broyles. “And
about Wendell’s chances I will tell
you this—my husband and I be
lieve that if anybody can get the
presidency on the Republican
ticket, Willkie can. Thanks to.his,
mother and father, Wendell Will
kie has an excellent political.back
ground,” Mrs. Broyles went on.
“Then too, he comes from the best
state in the union for a president.
I.don’t know any other state that
is more interested in politics than
“Yes, I would say that Willkie’s
chances are better than average.
And if he fails to win, you can
blame the Republican platform—

A complete remodeling of Pres
ident Ralph D. HetzeL’s home was
done by the grounds and buildings
department during the summer.
As it stands now, after remodel
ing, the home conforms to the or
iginal architectural design.
The old two-car- garage was
converted into a servants’ quar
ters and a new garage was con
structed. Heretofore, the servants
lived in the house.
The old building was a typical
Pennsylvania farmhouse with a
very large kitchen, inefficient
heating system, and large living
room. The kitchen was reduced
in size, and cabinets and cup
boards arranged to make a .mod-,
ern, efficient workroom.
A breakfast alcove was install
ed and a butler’s pantry was in
corporated in the new arrange
ment. The laundry remains- where,
it was originally but has been en
On the outside, the large porch
surrounding the house was remov
ed, and landscaping of the.grounds
is now in progress. In addition to
the remodeling, new heating and
lighting systems were installed.
