BY GRIDIRON CLUB Few Administration Leaders Escape Newspaper Men’s Barbs at Dinner. (Continued From First Page.) that ‘‘reporters are never present.” The only other speaker of the evening was Dr. Glenn Frank, president of the University of Wisconsin. The prohibition Issue was presented In the form of a skit entitled ‘‘Little Boy Blue Nose.” The hero. ‘‘Little Boy Blue Nose," himself, was an anemic child, the godson of Herbert Hoover and the child of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Ex periment. His real name was disclosed aa ‘‘A. Noble Experiment." Wheeled Into a clinic of distinguished special- Ists, he was subjected to a searching examination. Dr- Wickersham ex pressed the view that the patient might be helped by moving his enforcement glands from the Treasury to the Depart ment of Justice, but Dr. Graham (chair man of the House judiciary committee) diagnosed the child’s case as general breakdown, resulting from congentlal hypocrisy." Operetta on Tariff Given. The Senate’s difficulties with the tariff were accorded special treatment , m _ a tuneful and satiral operetta entitled “The Pirate's Progress” or ‘Down in tne Sugar Barrel With Smoot.” The House of Representatives was not neglected. Its members, pictured as having grown chesty through listening to oonstant praise of their legislative efficiency, were taken down off their perchma bit of musical comedy entitled Boobs v} Joyland," depicting them as small lads playing statesmen. . The newly discovered planet X fur nished the theme of a presentation in which the guests were permltted M look down upon the earth and study some of the political and economic questions of the world ranee telescopes. This enabled the club to throw considerable new light en sev- i eral of the more perplexing problems of the American Government. A ghostly parade of President Hoover’s discarded lieutenants and ad visers was climaxed by the participants embracing Claudius H. Huston, chair man of the Republican national com mittee. and welcoming him to Never- Never Land.” . . .... In the interest of even-nanded jus tice to both major political parties, the club put on a thrilling circus act deal ing with the recent rrymnastic feats oi some of the Democratic Senators dur ing the final stages of the tariff tattle. Senators Tydings of Maryland. Hawes of Missouri, Ashhurst ° f Arizona. Cope land of New York and Walsh of Mas sachusetts, the star oer formers, were nresented by the ringmaste 3 Proi. Grundy's troup of trained Democratic tight rope walkers.” Guest List at Dinner.

As the dinner began, a nerve-shat tering crash of falling dishes and glass ware was heard In the offing. A mem ber rushed forward and as the startled guests looked about anxiously tor an explanation. President Charles S. Groves of the Gridiron Club exclaimed; ‘‘For heaven's sake, what was that terrible crash?” ‘‘That was the Senate," came the answer, ‘‘welcoming President Hoover’s nominations for the Supreme Court.” Spirit of Dr. Work Appears. The lights went out and the orches tra began playing weird music as the spirit of Dr. Work and four ghosts marched on the stage. The spirit of Dr. Work addresses the audience. ‘‘Many faces are missing which were familiar when the Hoover administra tion was inaugurated. The woods are - full of political ghosts and there will be more. Their story is the ‘Ballad of Lost Leaders.’ Where are they now? He proceeded then to recite as follows: Tell me now where Horace Mann is— * Col. Mann, that Southern dough man, Tell me. too. where Donovan ia— Bill, the wild and woolly Roman? Where ia Mabel, lady showman? Has she gone—or is she near? Bhe brought grief to each Rum Row man— But where are the snows of yesteryear? Where’s Jimmy Burke, the dandy one— Burke, whom Hoover leaned on; And old Doc Work, that handy one. When ’2B careened on? Why. Hubert s doses he was weaned on, And now no Hubert answers, ‘'Here.” Where has that lofty • bean” gone?— But where are the snows of yesteryear? And where. I pray, is George Barr Baker? He was Hoover’s good-will censor. Bascnm Siemp, black-and-tan caretaker; Bisrop Cannon, dry dispenser; SPECIAL NOTICE. TRASH BARRELS, NEW. METAL, LARGE Size. *1 each. BRUCE T.

I grow In tense r But where are the snows of yesteryear? Nay. never answer has been heard. Where they are gone, or far or near. Except with this for an ° v *cword— But where are the snows of yesteryear? Welcome to Never Never Land. Chairman Huston entered and was welcomed to political Never Never Land. Huston replied in song to the tune of "I Hear You Calling Me. ThouVh^Hoover 1 one who wanted me, Because I turned the trick in Tennessee, But now you only think of Muscle Shoals. And lust for that you will not let me be. others went their And W now you tell me that I cannot stay: You've lost your goafto Walsh and Caraway. You'll all be sorry what you did some day, I bear you calllnt me. The scene shifted quickly to a hos pital and the sickly child “Little Boy Blue Nose” alias “A. Noble Experiment” was brought in for diagnosis. As bearded doctors gathered for the ex amination, "Noble" tooted his horn and revealed his identity in rhyme: ■ • Little Boy Blue Nose, Blow your horn, .. There's a still in the meadow And a kick in the corn. “Noble’s" Nurse, Senator Wesley Jones of the “Five and Ten” fame, address ing Dr. Wickersham, head of the clinic, said, "His Godpapa, Mr. Hoover, wants you to examine him.” Dr. Graham spoke up, “I only need one look at him for my diagnosis. It’s a general break down, resulting from congenial hypoc- there a cure for it?” asked Nurse Jones. “Sure,” said Dr. Graham, reaching for the ax. , “Stop," cried the alarmed nurse. Dr. Graham, you’re nothing but a Pennsyl vania quack. I demand an opinion from Dr. Wickersham.” “Don’t let’s get excited,” said Dr. Wickersham soothingly, “but he does look defective for a 10-year-old. X wonder if his godpapa willbe mad if I njally discover what is the matter with him.” His Court Room Congested. The examination proceeded. “He seems to be a little shy on backbone, said Dr. Wickersham. I think that can be remedied by moving his enforce ment glands from the Treasury to the Department of Justice. And—oh i Here’s congestion—very serious conges tion. His court room is too crowded. Dr. Graham considered the case hopeless and pronounced the child a “complete nitwit.” Little Noble began to grow restive and Dr. Graham sug gested singing him to sleep with that tuneful ditty, entitled, “I»3t Me Call You Brookhart, I’m Pretty Sick of You.” Noble's examination came to a more or less unsatisfactory ending with a song to the tune of the “Maine Stein Song.” . The London Conference came next. To an accompaniment of soft music, j the silver curtains parted and Secre tary of State Stimson, disguised as “Alice," entered “Wonderland” through the looking glass. The White Knight, who turned out to be Premier Mac donald, welcomed her to the London Conference. ' Duchess Parity, a bedizened dowager, entered. , _ “She seems a very expensive per son,” remarked Alice. „ “You can have her to play with, replied the White Knight. “Take ter; she will cost you a cold billion. She has an enormous apetite. You must give her at least five cruisers a year to sharpen her teeth on." “Father Hoover told me to bring her home,” said Alice, “but I don’t think he knows much about her.” The Walrus (Foreign Minister Briand) and the Carpenter (Premier Tardleu) came upon the stage and the Walrus recited: “Th* time has come. O Alice dear, To talk of many things. Os seas and ships and sealing wax, Os protocols and kings. And whether merchantmen are safe,, And whether blimps have wings. “What is it you want of me,” asked Alice. Walrus Tells a Riddle. The Walrus replied: “Security. I will tell you a riddle. When is a nation not secure?” “That’s easy: when it’s in the League of Nations.” said Alice. “The girl has sense,” said the Wal rus. “No, Alice, there is no answer, but it’s a beautiful topic of conversa tion.” ! The Duchess and Alice burst into song, which ran as follows: Duchess — “WUll you talk a little faster?” said Macdonald to the French. , •'There’s a Tory close behind me, and he s treading on my bench, . Bee how eagerly the pacifists and churches now are backed. _ They are watting on the Treaty—will you come and sign the, pact? . Will you, wflgi't you, will you. won’t you. will you, won't you sign the Pact?” Alice— Will you, won’t you. will you. won’t you. wiU you, won't you sign the Pact?" Duchess— /ou can really have no notion how de lightful it will be. .. „ > .Vhen the cruisers and the dreadnaughta all > are sunk beneath tne sea.” * But the French replied: 'Too far! Too far! ■ „ r THE SUNDAY STAR. WASHINGTON, D. C.. APRIL 27. 1930—PART ONE. Your figure’s not exact, . So we thank you very kindly, but we will not sign the Fact. Will you. won’t you, will you. won t you, will you, won’t you sign the Pact? Alice— •’Will you. won’t you. will you. won’t you, will you, won't you sign the Pact? Duchess — • What matters it how far we go?” cried Btimson in despair. “The Democrats will run the show. If Hoover gets the air. . . , It matters not to me. dear friends, how Washington would get, I care not for entanglements. If you will sign the Pact." Alice— •’Will you. won’t you, will you. won't you, will you, won't you sign the Pact?” And Alice vanished through the look ing glass, wishing she were “back in the Philippines, where I could wear a white suit and get bitten by spiders.” Smoot Cast as Captain. The cast of ‘‘The Pirate’s Progress,” dealing with the tariff, consisted of Long Sam Shortridge, Capt. Smoot,, Pirate Hebert (Senator from Rhode Island), Prof. Bingham (of Connec ticut) and Lady Chatterly’s Lover. Proper attention was paid to Senator Smoot’s valiant fight to clothe customs officers with unlimited power to bar foreign literature which they might con sider obscene. Lady Chatterly’s Lover was discovered, in disguise, as a stow away aboard the pirate ship. Capt. Smoot was horrified, but Lady Chat terly’s Lover explained: • "It’s all right, Capt. Smoot, I’ve just got a Job with the Watch and Ward Society of Boston, selling the Saturday Evening Post to Harvard University.” Lady Chatterly’s Lover then sang ‘‘There Ought to Be a Law Against That,” which ran, in part, as follows: “ ‘lf you would be an author of today. Said Senator Smoot, 'my rules you must obey. Elizabethan language wIU not do. The Customs experts have their eye on you. For lit’rature henceforth must be polite. At Harvard they are teaching Harold Bell Wright.’ " “Now as for Shakespeare, known as 'Will,' He never heard of a tariff bill.” Chorus— “Oh, oh. Senator Blnoot. there ought to be a law against that.” The Gridiron Club's Ideas about the House of Representatives were present ed in the operatta "Boobs in Joyland." Speaker Longworth presided, of course. Members of Congress were represented as toy soldiers, dressed in white pan**, red coats and high caps. Rhyme Dedicated to Garner. Some of the members were described in "Mother Goose” rhymes. One of them, specially dedicated to Represent ative Garner, Democratic leader in the House, ran: Little Jack Garner Was found In a corner A’tacting of tariff pie. For the schedules on cattle Jack put up a battle, Then said what a poor sap was I. The closing song of the act, sung to the tune of “Toyland,” contained this verse; Boobs in joyland! Just like babes In toyland, Playing we are statesmen— Tho’ we no one else deceive. Din and rattle, Hark to our childish prattlel i Politics we’re playing In a land of make believe. Members of the astronomy class on the newly discovered planet fixed their teleacoplc goggles on the earth and looked down upon strange things. The “queer country with the funny people who look like they believed what they read in the newspapers” turned out to be the United States getting ready for a political campaign. “Who are those people jumping to and fro as though they didn’t know where they were going?” asked one of the pupils. “Those are Republicans trying to stand behind the President,” answered the professor. “What is that smaller crowd standing atlll and getting nowhere?" “Those are Democrats trying to stand in front of the President.” Another speck on the earth turned out to be a meeting of the unemployed. “What are they?” inquired one of the pupils. “The unemployed are large groups of people who under Democratic rule would be the victims of a panic, but under Republican rule are misguided , Communists who don’t know prosperity ’ when they see it,” replied the pro fessor. Forty-Five Years Ago. Members of the organization, garbed as were the charter members of the Gridiron Club in 1885, put on an an niversary skit. Four of them, standing in front of old Newspaper Row on Four teenth street, discussed the topics of i the day. Cleveland had just become , President. “Not since the days of John Quincy i Adams,” said the first member, “has any President been so well equipped for ’ the duties of his office aa our new President." “Oh, buncombe,” was the reply of • the second Jnember. “That’s been said of every President since the year of the big wind.” Mr. Cleveland was represented as being new, but too wise to call a special 1 session of Congress to deal with the l tariff. I “They say he goes Ashing," was a comment. “Presidents are always A6hing,” an other member answered. “Do you suppose there will be a coali tion in Congress between Burbon Demo crats and Republican mugwumps?” “Yes, until the next election, when they’ll all be regular again.” Reference was made to the fact that “Butler” was going to run in Massa chusetts again—“ Ben Butler,” it turned out to be. Dr. Mary Walker was spied crossing the street in her male costume. “She’ll be getting into Congress next.” “Not until the Gridiron Club’s more than a hundred years old and then some will there be a woman in Con gress,” was the prediction of one of these newspaper men of 45 years ago. A parade turned up Pennsylvania avenue. It turned out to be the Sons and Daughters of Temperance on the way to ask the President not to serve wines at White House state dinners. The Gridironers took their guests to Hollywood, disclosing a movie producer ' and a couple of camera men. They were discussing the visit of former President Coolidge. “What a voice for our new talkie of 'Way Down Bast,’ ” said one of the camera men. "I see that since returning from Hollywood Mr. Coolidge has said he does not Intend to run for public office again,” continued the camera man. “That's what he says today,” replied the other, “but listen”; and to the tune of “Tit Willow” he sang the following: By a tree In Northampton a gentleman cat. Singing. "Morrow, fcmorrow. tomorrow." And I said to him. "Where will the White house be at. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow? Hoover needs your advice, Mr. Coolidge, I fear. Though you haven’t the mind of a great en gineer.” - - - But all he replied, with his hand to his ear, Was "Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow." He smiled to himself as he sat near that bough, • Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. And a nice new fedora encircled his brow, O. tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. And he thought of the conference gone on the rocks. And he read in the news the prices of stocks. And he sighed as he gased at the run in his socks. "Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.” A Capitol janitor and a policeman were revealed in conversation over the contents of a trash can. The janitor extracted a copy of the Republican platform from the trash ean. “That’s what they ran on before the election—and walked on after election,” said the policeman. An old Senate doormat was found in the can. "When Secretary Stlmson gets back from London with the treaty, the Sen ate will have a new doormat,” the janitor said. Vice President Curtis and Senator Watson, Republican leader of the Sen ate, represented by club members, sang a duet to the tune of "It Ain’t No Fault of Mine’’: Watson: “Oh. Mister Curtis, can you tell Why such a thing should be? They call me Senate leader, but— Nobody follows me.” The Vice President: “Oh. it ain’t no fault of min* If the boys won’t get in line; If they will not follow precedence It ain’t no fault of mine.” Watson: “If, when we've passed this tariff bill. It's to the White House sent, We cannot tell that It will be Bigned by the Pres-i-dent.” The Vice President: “Oh, it ain’t no fault of mine If you can’t learn his design; I am not the White House spokesman, but— THAT ain't no fault of mine.” Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor, was represented in trouble over many offers he had received to shorten the history of the United States which Calvin Cool idge is to write for Inscription on a mountainslide in South Dakota. He read one suggestion from Alfred E. Smith, which follows: “The South should have won the war of secession and the West should have been given back to the Indians.” The folowing dialogue between two members of the club Introduced the new civilian member of the District Commission, Gen. Crosby, a guest at the dinner: First member: "What is that mili tary noise like a troup of cavalry?” Second member: “That’s Maj. Gen. Crosby, the new civilian Commissioner of the District of Columbia, arriving at this dinner.” First member: “Hitch your horse a moment, general, and dismount. We should like to present you to our guests. Gentlemen, this is Maj. Gen. Crosby, new Commissioner of the District of Columbia.” New Member Initiated. The club Initiated a new member— ’ Raymond Clapper, chief of the Wash- j ington bureau of the United Press. After a severe grilling at the hands of Judge Thad Caraway, chairman of the '> Senate lobby committee, he was for mally welcomed into the organization. The newly elected president of the club, Charles S. Groves, Washington ’ correspondent of the Boston Globe, was i inaugurated with appropriate ceremo i nles. The shades of John Wlnthrop and his followers from the Massachu i setts Bay Colony came upon the scene I to learn how successful Puritanism had ! been In the United States. They found that the Will Hays code of morals for f the movies “shows that the light of Puritanism is still burning brightly.” “I remember,” said one of the Puri tans. “when Miles Standish tried to get married by proxy. Is that custom still followed?” “It’s a little different now,” came the reply. “If that affair happened today Miles Standish would sue John Alden for alienation of affections; Priscilla would swat Standish with her spinning wheel, a Jury would find her not guilty and the tabloids would be plastered with pictures of the love nest.” “I remember,” said another, “when one of our colony was accused of bribing the Indians to get their land.” “It wouldn’t be bribery nowadays,” was the response, “It would be called a loan to an old friend.” Attention was called to the fact that Mr. Groves came from Massachusetts and fear was expressed that the White House might “object to another New England President.” but a reassuring answer was given: "The White House would not object to a New England president—of the Gridiron Club.” Thereupon President Groves was for mally Inducted into office without further delay and presented with a gavel made from the handle of a Puri tan ducking stool. The guest list was: The President of the United States. The Vice President of the United The Speaker of the House of Repre sentatives. The Ambassador of Brazil. The Ambassador of Great Britain.
