"Is it true that you and Governor JAMES are to be married?" she was asked.
"No" she replied, still smiling and blushing.
"Was the Governor your guest at the recent Cornell spring day?"
Mrs CASE voiced another soft denial but added, "I'll probably have some news for the papers a little later."

"The Governor," she said "is just here for a visit, as I am. He doesn't want to be disturbed."
Later, the Governor and Mrs. CASE went for a drive. Returning, JAMES told newsmen:
"There's no story here. When and if there is, we'll let you know. I'm merely visiting an old friend I've known down the years."
