Scene from "Howards End" Dialogue of Henry Wilcox "Ruth’s last wish when she dies is scribbled on a piece of scrap paper on her death bed: Howards End should go to her new friend, Miss Margaret Schlegel." Her husband Henry and children are understandably baffled by this request, and a little angry. " Why would she leave the house to someone outside the family?"  Her daughter Evie rips the paper up and tosses it into the fire.

Accepting them in New Haven, Connecticut, on June 5, 1948, was the captain of the Eli team. Perhaps the first baseman, 23, knew his own scouting report (good field, no hit); George H.W. Bush chose a game other than baseball.
