President Hoover's physical condition has occasioned some anxiety. Immediately a

new President takes office, his health becomes of national concern and a member of the medical staff of the Army or the Navy is assigned to live at White House and look after it. Dr. Boone, President Hoover's personal physician found that the President Weighed two hundred pounds when inaugurated. Mr. Hoover characteristically threw himself without restraint into the labours of the White House, and ninny observers lately have remarked that he appeared unduly fatigued. Dr. Boone has now found it wise to announce that the President's weight is reduced to one hundred and eighty-live pounds and that his general health is excellent.
