WHERE IRONY KILLS THE
AMERICAN SPREAD-EAGLE
Gridiorn Club Banter Is Always
Music to the Statesmen's
Ears
Aaron Hardy Ulm in The Dearborn
Independent.
Imagine a young United States
senator, famous as a "boy orator
~ ? ' ? i a /\ m /-3
and noted for long speecnes, auditing
his first banquet in Washington.
The toastmaster in presenting him as
a speaker reminds him that long addreses
are wearisome and should be
avoided.
"So that we might be of help to
you," the toastmaster concludes, "we
have decided to present you with this
alarm clock. Before making a speech
in the senate, wind up the alarm, set
the clock on your desk and when the
alarm goes off, stop."
The senator, primed for a display of
his eloquence, responds. Just as he
rises to lofty flights, tne ciock sitting
before him breaks into loud, jangling
sound, which continues for several
moments. Amid the roar of laughter
which goes up, the senator, recognizing
the satire, sits down and
makes no further attempt to "wax
eloquent."
In ways like thai the Gridiron club
of Washington frequently reminds
public men that they can take themselves
too seriously, and it incidentally
reminds the public that many1 matters
of seemingly ponderous import
may not be so serious as they seem.
Twice a year and occasionally three
times a year the most famous dining
club in America, if not the world,
turns its fonts of humor and satire
on men prominent in national life
and on current national questions.
Whole Country Can Smile
All the country shares in part the
fun produced at the famous dinners
of the Gridiron club, for no Sunday
morning newspaper ever omits the description
of its stunts, which alone is
all that is ever permitted to be published
regarding its dinners. The club
has only one fixed rule, which is that
"ladies are always present and reporters
are never present." Each is
a "constructive" fact, for the club is
composed essentially of reporters and
only once has a woman been invited
to and attended one of its regular
dinners. The woman thus honored
was Miss Jeanette Rankin, who, when
serving as the first woman member
of congress, was among the guests
at a Gridiron affair.
While the Gridiron club serves a
good national purpose by way of satizing
men who often take themselves
too seriously and current questions
which the public frequently
takes too seriously, it is really an or
ganization witnout a purpose, it nas
no high-sounding code of principles
and has never attempted to speak for
any group, not even for the corps
of Washington correspondents, from
which its members came and come.
Though only men who are doing
newspaper work in Washington are
admitted to active membership, to
leave newspaper work or move from
J i J: ?

for further participation in
club alfairs. In fact, many of the
active members are no longer newspaper
men, and there is a substantial
list of associate members, or former
active members, who no longer reside
at the national capital. Then
there are 10 limited members who
have no journalistic claim, but each
of whom has some special entertaining
talent, usually, as in the case, say,
of John Philip Sousa, in the musical
line.
Thp rhih is rinw in its thirtv-eev

1885. Of its charter members only
four survive and no one of them is

Club Product of Friction
The famous dining club, whose dinner
invitations are more highly prized
even by men of the greatest prominence
than perhaps those of any other
organization in America, was the
product of friction between newspaper
correspondents and some of the
public men of the time in Washington.
Back in the days when the status
of the Washington correspondent
was vague and undecided, a public
man resenting criticism or the publication
of matter he didn't like to see
in print sometimes would try to ''punish"
individual correspondents or the
corps as a group. In the early eighties
two correspondents were.ordered
to jail by the United States senate
* r r x- 1. _ 1 U ?... ?
xur reiusmg 10 nia?.e kiiuwii nuw a
copy of a treaty, under secret discussion,
was procured for publication.
Another time a speaker of the house
of representatives insisted on the
right to "pack" the press gallery wit}:
curious and casual visitors, to the discomfort
and at times the exclusion
of the working reporters. Such occurrences
forced the corespondents
into self-defensive cooperation. They
raised a furor that caused the two
who were in jail to be released. They
formed themselves into squads which
guarded the entrances to the house
press gallery and turned back casual
! visitors who demanded admittance by
I authority of the speaker. In planning
their defensive battles, tiioy often
met together at dinner, where
they soon learned that ridicule r.r:d
satire were of more avail than formal
protest or solemn assertation. Out
of those meetings grew ;.he Gridiron
club, which from its beginning has
?1 -- - ~ v,,] T i-t >i _ v. <1 ! inor
Deen Olliy a uimug aim iUM-iiiuau>&
organization.
In the early days the -nenibership
was limited to a maximum of 40,, but
even at that it was difficult to keep
the club fully membered; for Washington
correspondents wore not so
numerous as at present ?ni some
would not participate. Now tne active
membership is limited :o 50 and
to be invited to join the club is
among the highest honors within his
profession which a Washington correspondent
can attain.
Neither well-planned fun-making
oe o riinnpr feature nor the particular
J CiO c+ - ?
kind that has made the Gridiron club
world-famous was an "invention" of
members of the organization. The
Clover club of Philadelphia antedated
the Gridiron as a fun-making dining
club, and the Gridiron's peculiar variety
of skits was originated by an
outsider. At a dinner given^the club
in its early days by R. F. Crowell, the
first rehearsed, stage-like stunts were
i enacted, most of them being satires
on the club members. The club took
over the idea and applied it in the
main to public men and public affairs.
For the last 30 years or more
! each of its formal dinners, one usualj
ly in early winter and the last in late
i winter or early spring, has been
' planned like a show for theater perl
formance. All the skits have been
| written or otherwise devised by club
| members, who also with one or two
exceptions have been the sole performers.
The only outside assistance
j called in has to do chiefly with the
i costuming.
; Every president since Cleveland
. has been the subject of Gridiron ban
, ter and every one since Cleveland has
been a guest of the club. President
i Cleveland would never attend a Gridiron
dinner and he was inclined to
resent some of the satiric strictures
applied to his policies at clu-o dinners.
Harrison was the first president to
attend a Gridiron dinner, and on the
occasion in question he surprised the
organization by showing that he could
meet its members on their own
ground. After subjecting him to the
: usual amount of badinage,' he was
, called on to speak. It happened that;
i only a lew days beiore ne had acted
a convention of patent lawyers
vand inventors. j
| "This is the second time this
week," he remarked as he rose, "that
I have been called on to open a congress
of American inventors." His
' speech was one of the best ever delivered
at a Gridiron dinner. After he
concluded a member went over to
Perry S. Heath, who was Harrison's
confidential correspondent, and declared:
"I didn't know it was in him."
4 "Oh, he's all right on his feet," Heath
replied. "It's only when he sits down
that he falls down.
When Bryan Met Bryan
i That was in 1892. Theodore Roose
It _ _ /"!
veic, as uivn service commissioner,
attended his first Gridiron dinner in
1890 and fittinglly it would seem waG
the subject of a skit on that occasion.
He made a witty speech, and iho impression
he made may have had much
to do with his future. , Of all men
Roosevelt has been the source to dare
of most Gridiron "copy.'' His career
and activities were such that for
i more than a quarter of a century
thee was scarecely a Gridiron dinner
at which he could be ignored. It was
Roosevelt who in 1908 helped to produce
one of the few unplanned Gridiron
sensations which, despite the rule
against quoting speakers, got into the
news. It was at the time of ;he controversy
over his summary action
, with regard to the negro troopers, in,
volved in the Bnownsville riots. A
clever skit had to do with the
Brownsville affair. Senator Joseph
B. Foraker, who was the guest of the
club and a speaker at the dinner,
took occasion to make an attack on
Roosevelt, who, when his turn to
speak came, made a counter attack
on Foraker. However, no full report
of what either said has ever been
published, though the newspapers of
the day carried accounts of the verbal
encounter.
Once or twice full speeches made
, by guests at Gridiron dinners have
i ? xl. ^
appeared in me newspapers. untc,
. about 1896, when Cardinal Satolli
i was new in Washington as the first
. representative there of the Pope, he
. was induced to attend a Gridiron
i dinner, and he agreed to make a
. I speech. After a few remarks he ask.!
ed that an associate be permitted to
. iread an address he had prepared for
; the occasion. In it he set forth at
- length the reason for his being in
^Washington, something on which the
- correspondents lofg had been urging
11 him to express himself. When the
secretary of the club asked for a copy
of the speech for permanent record,
he was informed that it had been
given out in advance through a press
association. There was nothing else
to do but to make it available to all {
correspondents.
At one of the few dinners given by j
the clui) during our active participation
in the World war a speech made
by President Wilson was released for
publication several days after its dei
livery on account of the national im-j
portance of what he had said.
Wilson, while at the White House,
was a frequent subject of Gridiron :
satire and often was present whenj
skits having to do with his policies
were enacted. He took the badinage,
in all good nature.
William Jennings Bryan, who for j
actual time in national office has been:
the subject of more Gridiron fun-'
making than any other American j
public man, always takes good naturedly
the grilling applied to him and
sometimes contributes a pre-arranged
part.
Once when he was secretary of
state it was announced*beforehand
that on account of a prior engage- j
ment Bryan couldn't attend one of
the dinners to which he had been
invited. But when the dinner began
there was seen sitting on the left
of the presiding officer a person who
looked like Bryan. 1
Later
in the evening the real Bryan
eame in.
"I am tired of this man Hanford
(the actor who on prior occasions had
taken part in skits as "Bryan") impersonating
me," the secretary of
state exclaimed.
"I've tried to impersonate all the
great actors of the time," Hanford
replied, "and I certainly can't ignore'
you."
Hanna was among the most popular
of. all the more or less regular guests
the Gridiron club has had at its din
ners. When he first appeared at one,
he had just come into national prominence
and was made the subject of aj
satiric skit. When he arose to speak.
, i
ne Gaia:
"I know many members . of the)
Gridiron club. I have met most of
you on the tented fields?and in the1
barrooms of New York."
! There is nothing that a guest can
do at a Gridiron elub which will hit;
' so well as to hand its members a j
"come back" with punch in it, and
there is little that sets so Jjadly as'
fulsome talk about the power of the
pre.ss, the importance of the Fourth
Estate and other pointless flattery. |
President Never" Caricatured
Often a man of national aspiration '
but not well known nationally can j
j render himself a tremendous service
by demonstrating at a Gridiron club!
dinner that he has "the goods." |
Though no report of what they say is,
maHp it fllK n'ftori lionnorifl/1 +V>ai- on/?Vi I
v*. wii a?y|/viivu wiau OUV/ii
a man has earned the serious- attention
of the newspaper world by such
a demonstration. This was so veryj
largely with John A. Johnson, the j
popular Democratic governor of Minnesota,
who in 1908 aspired to a pres-i
idential nomination. At a Gridiron'
'dinner he made a surprising speech,'
filled with rich humor and sound phi-,
losophy?it is said by some members ^
' to have been the finest surprise
' among many that have occurred at
j the dinners. But for his untimely j
' death Johnson might have . become
i ! 1 11. _ . 1 1 I
1 president ana me unquoiea spoecn
j might have been of great h?lp to him.;
While many men as Gridiron
guests have displayed talents of,
i which they were not suspected, the'
! reverse of a pleasing surprise occasionally
has. occurred. Sometimes a
speaker has ignored the five-minute
' rule, which applies to all except the
President of the United States, and
I
' given forth laborious addresses that
j were wholly unsuited to the occasion."
t The president also is never impersonated,
and is the only American public
| man who is thus held to be,above di;
rect and personal caricature. His policies
and current expressions, however,
are held always to be fit subjects
of satire. 1 I
| The United States supreme court
is the single American politico- public!
institution that is never satirized,
though some of its decisions have'
i . i i i .. p i
Deen maae suDjects 01 numorous
quips figuring in club humor. In re-!
cent years few members of the isu-l
preme court have attended Gridiron'
dinners. The reason is believed to bet
the sense of judicial dignity that was I
i held by the late Chief Justice White.
He would never attend one of the affairs,
for the reason, he said, that
someone might take advantage of the
occasion to attack the supreme, court.,
"Then I would have to reply," he
said, J'and that would never do."
Two Most Notable Gatherings
The reason why speakers at Gridiron
dinners are held strictly to the
time limit is because the programs are
so minutely planned that if an event
overlaps its allotted time the schedule
of the evening is disarranged.
So that the situation can be met when
disarragement is unavoidable, the
president of the club, who always
presides at the dinners, has despoticauthority
over both the preparation
and the enactment of the program.
The two most notable dinners that
have been given by the Gridiron club
occurred in 1898 at the close of the
Spanish-American war and last year
at the opening- the Limitation of Armament
conference. At the first dinner
the greatest number of men of
national prominence was present; at
the last the greatest number of world
prominence. The 1921 dinner was
given largely for the distinguished
delegates from abroad to the Limitation
of Armament conference and
by reason of their presence it was one
of the most notable gatherings of the
kind ever held anywhere.
While it has many imitators there
is no other club in all the world like
the dining organization maintained
i>y Washington correspondents. It
may be doubted if another of the kind
is possible anywhere. One could not
operate very well elsewhere in the
United States, not for the lack of talent,
but because of the absence of
background. It is the atmosphere of
Washington and the immediate contact
there with national figures and
big national questions which'make
possible the high success of and the
national interest in Gridiron affairs.
The affairs serve to . show that
things political are not always so se 1
i .mi
rious as they seem; ana 11 you win
read a review of them?as set forth,
say, in Arthur Wallace Dunn's interesting
book,' "Gridioron Nights" (to
which the writer of this is indebted
for much of the material in this article)?you
will be inclined to wonder
why some of the "serious" subjects
satirized in the past were ever
thought by anyone to be serious at
all. Through the application of the
philosophy of humor the club merely
anticipates the mellowing influence
of Time.

Five tables of bridge furnished entertainment

Dan Cupid 'bearing aloft a

an interesting round of bridge the
hostesses served a refreshing course
of fruit sherbert and angel cake, and
little souvenir mint baskets fashioned
of pink crepe and tulle were presented
the guests. After the games
the players were joined by Mrs. Minnie

was a most delightful party and a
charming compliment to the honor
guest.

Some County Figures Concerning
Prevention cf This Disease
j In spite of the fact that South Carolina
has been passing through a period
of financial depression and consequent
retrenchment in expenditure
of public funds, there has been an
increase of $15,850.00 over last year
in appropriations by the state, counties
and cities for the fight against
tuberculosis, according to a statement
of the South Carolina Tuberculosis
association.
While the legislature cut the api
propriation for the maintenance at
the state sanitarium $10,649.95 an
appropriation of $17,500.00 was
made for building and improvements,
thus leaving a gain of $6,550.00. The
city oi unarieszon appiupn<ncu
$3,000.00 to Charleston county sanitarium
which is in process of construction.
Richland county increased'
its appropriation $2,000.00 and the
city of Columbia added $1,000.00 to
its former appropriation to the Richland
County Anti-Tuberculosis association.
Other counties show an increase
of $3,000.00.
This increase in appropriation, with
funds from the tuberculosis Christmas
seal sale and contributions from
charitable societies and individuals
will increase the number of available
beds for the treatment of the dis
ease by approximately 30 beds. The
number of beds at present available
at the state sanitarium also county
and private sanitoria is 176. With
the addition of 30 the number will be
raised to 206. While this increase
is encouraging- it represents only a
slight approach to the number of
beds needed for South Carolina if the
state is to adequately handle the tu.
berculosis problem. There should be
13,000 beds available in this state
j now.
"The importance of an intensive

the results of the Framingham, Mas;
sachuisetts, experiment," said President
J. Nelson 'Frierson, of the state
association. "In seven years time
the death rate has been (cut twoj
thirds. This would represent in
South Carolina a saving of over 1,000
lives every year." -- I
I Those who are doing active work
in Newberry county to fight this
dread, disease are the personnel of the
county health department, working in
cooperation wtfch the various organizations
that are interested in this
1 fight. Two clinics have been held
at the office of the county health department
and 44 examined, also
about 60 more' examinations have
j been made and several unsuspected
cases have been found this way and
| treatment instituted at once, me
county nurse visited a number of
i hom^s and has given instructions to'
wards prevention of the spread of the
f disease in the household and the comImunifcy.
Four cases have been sent
i to the state sanitarium.
That tuberculosis is a community
j problem is surely shown by the death
' rate and the great prevalence of the
j disease. There are estimated over
j400 cases in Newberry county and
the records' chow that for the last
I
three years at least 44 have died. The
I county health department holds a
j constant free clinic lor any one who
wishes to be examined and to get expert
advice. There are a limited
number of beds at the state sanitarium
for free patients and those suffering
from ''this disease should certainly
avail themselves of such an opportunity
to win their way back to
i health.
