THE VERBAL NEWSPAPER FREDERIC SNYDER, New York newsman and publicist, is keen and witty. He applies the ability of a skilled journalist in the preparation of his new and attractive form of addresses. Each of them is made up quite like a newspaper. Some sensational headline facts, an editorial of inspiration, a humorous column and some advertisements urging action. He brings news in the most delightful manner. Frankly and fearlessly he gives an unusual slant on present day problems—national and international. Few men have traveled more extensively or greeted more audiences in the United States. He has been engaged by cities and states, by universities, great foundations, federations, conventions, teachers institutes, forums. In many cities of importance and in rural sections improved public properties, hospitals, schools, playgrounds attest the lasting value of his efforts as a skilled Civic Engineer.
