PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT HAS INVITED MR. EAMON DE VALERA TO AMERICA AS AN HONOURED VISITOR TO NEXT YEAR'S GREAT EXHIBITION.

Provided that national affairs allow the head of the Government to leave the country for a month, Mr. de Valera will accept the invitation. His visit to America will be, perhaps, an event of far-reaching consequences.

Mr. de Valera wants to go. His love for America is enough to ensure that.

I once heard him say that if ever he were a private person with abundant leisure, the pleasure which he would like to enjoy more than any other would be to drive over America—along those vast trans-continental highways—in his own car. He travelled much in America when he went there to seek the recognition of the Irish Republic nineteen years ago, but he was so busy and so much thronged upon by people that he had no freedom or enjoyment.

" What do you think of Chicago?" someone said to Mr. de Valera's secretary, Mr. Frank Gallagher, when the Irish delegation had been at work for several weeks in that city and had not quitted the umpteenth floor of some enormous hotel during all that time, The secretary ceased thumping his typewriter for one moment.

" It seems to be well upholstered," he remarked, and went on working.
