P. G. Wodehouse:
Nazi Propagandist ...
T URNING ASIDE for a moment from
the actual fighting part of this war,
if we can, we come to a bit of news under the
heading of "sidelights of the war." Included in
these squibs and out of the ordinary happenings
is a little note saying that the British have for-
bidden listening to P. G. Wodehouse's propa-
ganda broadcasts from Berlin. The ban on P. G.
is even stricter than that on Lord Haw Haw, for
that worthy gentleman is pretty well recognized
as a German in English drape, and provides a
bit of amusement for Britains in need of some-
thing to do, or listen to.
But with 'Wodehouse, it's different. That blow
cuts more deeply. For all Englishmen, P. G. was
judged, as least by most Americans, as the most
English. His hero Jeeves, and charge Bertie
Wooster were the ultimate in the bewildered gen-
tleman and the all-efficient gentleman's gentle-
man. There are not many reading Americans or
Englishmen, for that matter-who, at some time
in their reading have not run across Bertie, or
his friends tied up in knots, and the stalwart
Jeeves cutting the ropewith a positively briliant
ease.
For those who didn't really know, it was "how
typically British," and for those who did not
know, it was parallel tnough to be very funny.
But everyone agreed that it was English. And
now Wodehouse, captured in'France during the
retreat, is broadcasting German propaganda
from Berlin. Even Jeeves would have a hell of a
time explaining that! "
Eugene Mandeberg
Installment Buying
And War Economy ...
The regulations which have been placed on in-
stallment selling by order of President Roosevelt
are one of the hardships of war. Yet they are
obviously a very minor inconvenience compared
to the sufferings of countries actually engaged
in hostilities, and in many instances Americans
will find themselves genuinely benefited by pro-
tection from the allure of too-easy credit.
There is no question but that the institution of
finance companies and personal loan services
has contributed a great deal to industrial devel-
opment and to popular enjoyment of goods put in
use while being paid for. Any unemployment
that may occur in the extensive financing indus-
try is to be regretted; it should be absorbed soon
in defense activities.
But the fact is also evaent that much time
purchasing has been carried to extravagant and
unsound lengths. Some experts in this field have
long felt tat it would be wiser in the interests of
the consumer as well as the lender to require
larger down payments on most items, to adhere
to shorter terms of payment than some which
run to eighteen months or two years, and to sur-
vey the customer's budget to see that he is not
undertaking too many such purchases at once.
Yes., this may call for a little curbing of de-
sires. Freedom is not to be defended without sac-
rifice. But those who even add a measure of
self-restraint to whatever restrictions may be
imposed on installment buying or other credit
will find that one of the important freedoms in
human experience is that of being out of debt.
-Christian Science Monitor

WASHINGTON-One of the first things Sen-
ator "Pappy" O'Daniel did after riding from
Texas to Washington in a day coach, was to try
to get federal jobs for fifteen members of his
hill-billy band.
His idea is to bring the band to Washington,
get Uncle Sam to pay them salaries, and then
put them on the air every Sunday morning in
a radio program which Pappy's friends say is sure
to land him in the White House. He is angling
with a cheese company to sponsor this program.
First thing the new Senator from Texas did
was to contact John Mayfield, son of ex-Senator
Mayfield of Texas, who is in charge of personnel
for the General Accounting Office. Young May-
field, however, intimated that it was not easy
to get government jobs for a group of men whose
chief qualifications were playing the fiddle. The
General Accounting Office, he said, needed book-
keepers, not crooners.
Next, Senator O'Daniel tried Jack Love, who
hails from Anson, Texas, and who is in charge of
personnel for the Immigration Division of the
Justice Department'. However, Love is being
transferred to the inspection service, so had an
excellent excuse not to undertake the onerous
job of placing fifteen hill-billies on the federal
payroll.'
At this point Pappy turned to his old Texas
pal, Jesse Jones.
Simultaneously Speaker Rayburn, also from
Texas, got a telephone plea for help from Sec-
retary of Commerce Jones. But the speaker of
the House was not sympathetic.
"You get 'em," he replied. "He's your Senator.
You had breakfast with him the morning he ar-
rived."
So now it is up to Jesse.
Among Texas insiders it is reported that the
big, gangling Secretary of Commerce will go
down the line for his fellow Texan, because he
sees the strength O'Daniel may have in lining
up the Texas delegation in the next Democratic
National Convention. Jesse always has nursed
vice-presidential or presidential ambitions, and
they die hard in his breast.
Farm Experts (?)
The British have an American bear by the
tail and don't know how to let go.
Recently they sent a letter to Secretary Claude
Wickard requesting that two experts on agricul-
tural production be sent to England to study
farming methods and recommend improvements.
Wickard was out of town when the invitation ar-
rived, and it came before Under Secretary Paul
Appleby.
Appleby is currently none too happy in the
Department of Agriculture. Behind the scenes
he and Wickard are at odds, chiefly over who is
boss. A junket abroad at government expense
would be a big relief, so although Appleby knows
little about agricultural' production and has had
no real farming experience, he selected himself
for the mission. a
The other choice, "Spike" Evans,' AAA head,
has had some farming experience but that was
long ago. Like Appleby, he is primarily a white-
collar administrator. Privately, the British don't
like it, but there is nothing they can do. They
can't say they don't want the two top-rung offi-
cials of the U. S. Agriculture Department.
No Army Peas
It doesn't make sense, but the "breadbasket of
the democracies", with overflowing larders, is
having trouble obtaining food for its own soldiers.
This is because the canners are balking at doing
business with the U. S. Army.
Recently the Army asked for bids on 900,000
cases of government-specification canned peas.
Out of the hundreds of pea canneries in the
country, only forty took the trouble to submit
prices. And of these forty bids only a handful
were anywhere near what Army and OPM ex-
perts considered a fair price.
Result was that only 300,000 cases of peas were
bought, leaving the Quartermaster Corps short
600,000 cases.
Aroused by this uncooperative attitude, OPM
chiefs summoned to Washington several leaders

peas by negotiated contracts instead of adver-
tising for bids (as it did recently in buying can-
ned tomatoes.)
Note-Anticipating similar difficulties on can-
ned salmon, particularly because of huge ship-
ments to Britain, the Government has advised
salmon canners that total requirements would
be 1,200,000 cases, about 20 per cent of the ex-
pected pack this year.
Secretive Smith
Senator "Cotton Ed" Smith of South Carolina
was remonstrating with a reporter about a story
concerning theappointment of Roger V. Peace,
publisher of the Greenville (S.C.) News, to the
Senate vacancy created by the death of Alva
M. Lumpkin. The story stated that Governor
Maybank had named Peace, a staunch liberal, to
"offset" Smith's conservatism.
"You shouldn't write things like that," pro-
tested the senior Senator from South Sarolina.
"I'm going to do my best to get along with Peace,
and here you try to drive a wedge between us be-
fore he even hits town."
"Well, it's a fact, isn't it, Senator?" shot back
the newsman.
"Sure, it's a fact," snorted Cotton Ed. "But
some facts shouldn't be told to the public.
Note-As a Senator, Peace, a two-fisted liberal,
plans to continue his crusade as a publisher to
improve Army morale by avigorous educational
campaign.
Tom Dewey Maneuvers
It's not supposed to be known, but the under-
cover master mind who got Tammany Hall to
nominate Frank Hogan as its candidate for New
York District Attorney was none other than
Tammany's mortal enemy, Tom Dewey.
Four years ago Dewey was elected District
Attorney as a crusader pledged to wage ruthless
war on Tammany. Timid about running, Dewey
was induced by the strenuous urging of Mayor
LaGuardia. But a lot of water has flowed over
the dam since then.
In 1938, LaGuardia supported Governor Leh-
man against Dewey. Last dear, LaGuardia didn't
help Dewey in his scramble for the Republican
presidential nomination, later campaigned for
Roosevelt against Willkie.
On the surface, Dewey is still friendly with
LaGuardia, the man who gave him his political
start. But actually he would like to see Fiorello
eliminated from New York politics, has no
wish to campaign for him for another term as
Mayor.
With his eye on the governorship next year and
the presidency in 1944, Dewey could not risk
striking at the "Little Flower" openly. Fiorello is
to well-heeled politically for that. So Dewey
had to operate secretly.
LaGuardia's big campaign issue is Tammany
Hall. Without it he faces a tough fight. One sure
way to remove the issue would be to give Tam-
many a claim to purity by nominating for Dis-
trict Attorney a champion from the opposition
camp. Frank Hogan is one of Dewey's chief as-
sistants.
Eager for a comeback after eight years of lean
pickings, Tammany was willing to trade the
District Attorneyship, which it had small chances
of winning anyway. For Dewey, the maneuver
meant putting LaGuardia in a hole. Simultan-
eously it gave an excellent excuse not to election-
eer for him.
Among politicos, that's what is known as smart
politics.
Un-Nicknamed Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt will go down in history
as one of the great Presidents, yet in one respect
he hasn't measured up to his renowned prede-
cessors.
He hasn't been given a nickname. Many Chief
Executives before him, some with far less hold
on the popular imagination, acquired definite
sobriquets.
Most famous of all, of course, was that given
George Washington, "Father of His Country."
John Adams. his successor, was called the "Col-
lous of Dehat" Thomas Jefferson the "ae

STUPID st

(Editor's Note: 'Twas just too much
the other night, so while Terence jug-
gles ice packs and swizzles tomato
juice, Women's Editor Barb Jenswold
takes over. Don't yawn, people . . . )
STARVE THE RICH and Feed the
Poor: The food shortage in Eng-
land isn't the only trouble people
have with eating; even in peace time
they don't all get to eat. Friend of a
friend of a friend of mine is close to
the Royal Family in Britain, often
gets in on their informal dinners (20
or 30 guests) . . . Claims she hasn't
been fed yet. You see, the Queen gets
served first and evidently starts
right in. But the Queene is a very
fast eater. Since all stops with the
Queen's laying down her fork, our
friend merely gets a sniff of a de-
lightful repast before it's whisked
away from before her. . . Saves wash-
ing the silver and keeps the servants
fat.
NOTHING LIKE living in an apart-
ment of one's own keeping house
alone for the first time. At least ,so
we've found. Rent rate sounded swell,
but the milk, electricity and tele-
phone bills have rather upset the rou-
tine at odd moments. Two dollars a
week per capita for food is plenty to
live on, if one discounts cokes and
candy bars so disadvantageously dis-
played and peddled around the office.
Two roommates and yours with
love and having a perfectly grand
time at it all. Switching sleeping ar-
rangements every week, collecting
piles of dirty dishes and passing the
buck too long about emptying the
garbage.
Kinda' funny in spite of the trag-
edy when you get up too quickly to
take out the charred toast and upset
the tray on your lap onto the living
room carpet. But when mashed po-
tatoes are brushed off to a new spot-
lessness, they taste just as good, 'and
the exercise in retrieving ice cubes
from behind the studio couch is good
for the "figger." . .
GREAT SPORT changing the furni-
ture arrangement completely-
working hours-and then having
roommate come home and switch it
all back with no effort at all . . . Also
fun coming home at 2 a.m. after put-
ting out a paper and tripping over
pieces of furniture that weren't there
in the morning.. ..
The joy of receiving the first call
on the new telephone.. . air tense at
that first ring, air ecatjc when itI
turns out to be the real thing-two
shorts . . . lun even when you head
the ring from you position on the
top bunk taat the ungodly hour of,
9 a.m.) and miss the chair you gen-
erally use as astepladder. Crash! And
you look up at the'smashed chair and
crawl painfully to the phone in the
otjer room. Fun even when you can't
sit down for another week. .
TRAGEDY-real tragedy-breaking
the first dime store dish or that
jar of your favorite jam that mother
made and mailed 700 miles to you.. .
Now you still eat the pam, but care-
fully, picking out the pieces of glass
as they appear..
Possession! Even a family mouse
who used, to run in circles in the
register beneath the table. In spite
of tha fact that- you put your foot in
the mousetrap one day at dinner and
flipped the cheese below, gratis to the
invader, you got him lated when he
was dancing around the kitchen. .
Mice are such sweet, innocent beings
it seems a shame, but Snap!! Dire
misfortune for someone who meant
no harm... Talk about minority op-
pression!
Fun' and a little frightening when
the janitor finds the bathroom screen

on the ground and you and your
friends in the window, bailing out
the tub when the drain won't work
after your friends have given their
dog ad ousing. . . Now you can't find
the dog anywhere. .
FUN to eave your first "own" home
. for a weekend, and much, much
satisfyinger to come back and unlock
the door to your abode-even if it is
a trifle topsy turvy and even if you
do, in the dark, fall over the ironing1
board your roommate forgot to stowj
away. . .
Fun making good what's left in the1
icebox, after the "kitty's drained of
its last tax penny... Fun lighting cig-
arets via the coils in th oven when
the matches are gone. Reminds one
of the witch who was turned to gin-
gerbread. . . Only one gentle push is
needed...
We're sorry it's almost over. We're
sorry we have to go home to real
meals, to a washing machine, to
sleeping all morning. . Like heck! ...
But we'll treasure this experience and
these memories. There's nothing in
the world like keeping an apartment,
and we mean it!
Intervention For Peace
The radio plea of John Cudahy for
a peace proposal from President
Roosevelt well illustrates the diffi-
culties of aloofness. For while the
former American Ambassador to Bel-
gium attacks "the war party" and
"interventionists" with one breath,
