A number of his caricatures have appeared in Vanity Fair. He has done creditable work in marble. He plays the piano and sings acceptably. His favorite athletic ' sports are wrestling, boxing and swimming, and at one time he was a whiz at track work. One must let down on some activity when one is twenty-four!
