LORDWU-THORP '- a MAN OF THE MOMENT. He was better known to the man in i the. street when he Bat on the' front ; j Opposition bench In the last Parliament and attended to the duties of a Liberal Whip. To the House be was simply 'Bobby Spencer,' and there was no one who attained such all-round popularity.. It was, therefore, with unfeigned re- - gret that his old friends watched him disappear down the corridor that leads to 'another place,' when the present _ Government came into office. It still seems strange to think of the House without his ornamental figure hurrying . Into the House before a division. 'Ornamental' is perhaps an inade quate word to describe him. It is one of those words which, Uke 'dlstin- gTiished-looklng,' would have made ' . Savage Landor open the window and- .; call for the police.
