Old Political Parties Rejuvenated.
Ambassador Bullitt Knighted.
Kennedy Family in Relays.
HE rejuvenation of the Democratic party, so far as the youth
of the country is concerned, began with Franklin Delano
Roosevelt, but the elixir has spread into both of the old line
parties until now the campaign is on for supremacy in. enlisting
the great number of men and women in their 20s and early 30s to
forward the work of the two parties. In universities, colleges and
even in business clubs the young people are forming into groups
to study for a better understanding of local and national affairs.
The older members of both of the great political parties in this
country might as well recognize that this is a day of young
people and that they are in the saddle to stay. In spite of night
clubs, jazz and the big apple, they are taking a more active and
earnest interest in politics and business of state than they have
ever before taken. There never have been as many actively organ
ized clubs and associations of young men and women for the
study of government and public legislation and actual participation
in party activities as there are today.
The movement to Inject new blood4-—_—_
mro tn« coming 1938 campaign and
to get ready for the national election
in 1940 has spread. One has only to
talk to those who have recently visited
many of the States to find this is a
fact to be reckoned with.
Director McAllister
Wins Youth.
Dorothy Smith McAllister, director
of the women’s division of the Demo
cratic National Committee and wife
of an associate justice of the Supreme
Court of Michigan, when seen a few
days ago had not long returned from
a trip to several of the New England
States and several Western States,
including Kansas. She was en
thusiastic over the part being taken
by the young men and women of
Senator Capper's State, and talked
so fast that one felt like he was on
a merry-go-round, grabbing at a post
now and then to retain his equilib
rium. She did not stop long enough
to say, "Do you follow?” Being in
her 30s, good-looking, smartly frocked,
with a slender girlish figure, she
somehow made one think of Anna
Hyatt Huntington's beautiful statue
of Joan of Arc, just now being ex
hibited at the Corcoran Gallery. There
is a quick and decisive zeal in all
her movements, and her pleasing
English, and the ability to inject her I
enthusiasm into others makes it easy j
to understand why she w'ould appeal i
to a youthful company. Dorothy on !
a Democratic charger! We do not |
mean the kind of charger that caused
John the Baptist so much pain and ;
embarrassment, for her head is se- j
curely anchored; she is never taken ;
of! her feet and Is quick at repartee, i
By the way, it looks as though this is
to be a contest between Bryn Mawr
and Wellesley during the next few
months, with Miss Martin, the new :
director of the women's division of
the Republican National Committee,
on the side of Wellsley, and Mrs. Mc
Allister, for swanky Bryn Mawr.
Mrs. McAllister has fallen for the
lure of old Alexandria, and has taken
an ancient Colonial house over there,
and is sending her children to school
there. She says they are already
getting quite some Virginia accent
which goes well with their Michigan
Mill Workers of Maine
Hear About Social Security.
A few weeks ago she stopped for a
meeting in Lewiston, Me.—that rock
ribbed Republican stronghold, where
her audience was composed of mill
workers and a few farmers. She
found the mill people were not only
Interested in much of the legislation
now before the Congress, but were
wonderfully well informed on matters
affecting their work and industries.
She said she had seldom had a more
friendly and ■ intelligent meeting, and
llearned quite as much from the mill
hands as they received from her. They
were especially keen to know about
the Social Security Act, and whatever
would give greater security to workers
in New England. They touched
lightly on the minimum wage bill and
seemed to have followed its discussion
in the House. The farmers wanted
to hear about the farm program. One
bright-eyed, elderly woman called out,
•‘Give ua better wages and steady
work and we will help you balance
the budget.” Mrs. McAllister was
immensely pleased when she was in
vited back to attend the general con
vention in Maine.
Democrats and Republican*
Spilt Up In Kansas.
She was much elated over the fact
that 9,000 Republicans in Kansas had
registered as Democrats and had
pledged themselves to work for the
educational reporter plan, organized
several years ago by Miss Mollie Dew
son, sometime vice chairman of the
National Democratic Committee. That
9,000 up above was not a clear gain
to the party of Jefferson and Jackson,
for 3,000 old line Democrats went
over to the enemy out in Kansas. Mrs.
McAllister, who is more or less con
servative In her statements, was en
thusiastic that the young Democrats
of Kansas and other Weeterr. States
were composing groups of young men
and women to study eaeh depart
ment of the President’s cabinet; they
*. i
are intensely interested, she said, in
the reorganization of Government de
partments from the standpoint of
economy; the Social Security Act and
old-age pensions, as well as unem
ployment compensation always came
into the picture for lively discussion.
The older women of the party, she
found, were a unit on equal represen
tation for women and men on State
committees. During the last presi
dential election many Republican
women felt that they were not given
fair treatment in the national con
vention and were rather relegated to
a back seat.
Miss Dewson’s Little House
In Georgetown.
By all that's good, Miss Mollie Dew
son, as everybody knows, is a very
frank, outspoken person both in pub
lic and private when expressing her
convictions, and that goes, too, for
the conduct of her menage, for anv
evening when Miss Mollie is dining at
home one can walk along the street
and see what she is going to have for
dinner—no peeping Tom stuff either,
for the cute little kitchen window
opens on the public thoroughfare.
The night Mrs. Franklin Delano
Roosevelt dined with her, just en
famille, the menu was simple and
Rooseveltlan in taste. Another thing
about Miss Mollie that is very differ
ent from the usual Government ex
ecutive in Washington—Miss Mollie
holds an executive job in the social
security—is that she uses a push but
ton very little—she more frequently
if what she wants is in the next room
gets up and goes in for it. You know
she has been a champion tennis player
and has always been athletic.
The Kennedys
Overflow the Embassy.
The family of Mr. Joseph P. Ken
nedy. American Ambassador to the
Court of St. James, seems to be going
over in relay*. There are almost a
dozen of them, including the father
and mother—and* not counting the
dogs they love—and it is causing some
anxiety where they will put the four
left at school in this country when
they go over later on. Nine children
is a family to be viewed with some
concern, but the Kennedys are a Jolly
lot and if there is nqg room enough
to put them up at the Embassy at
Princes Gate, Lady Nancy Astor when
she was over here said she would be
glad to accommodate a few of them.
The large embassy office building,
which was erected by the British
government and rented to the United
State*, has a number of apartmentb
or flats in it and it may be the over
flow can be housed there. This build
ing, erected in Qrosvenor Square, l*
on historic ground. No. 1 Grosvenor
Square, which was one of the resi
dences demolished to make way for
the office building, was in the latter
part of the 18th century the home of
the Duke of Buccleuch and the Duke
of Bolton. No. 2 was occupied about
the same time by Charles Town
shena, chancellor of the exchequer.
The Embassy proper was formerly the
residence of the late J. P. Morgan.
Ambassador Bullitt
Washington was all a-twitter with I
royalty during the last fortnight and
of a new and very different variety.
The Sultan of Oman and Muscat and
the three royal Albanian princesses.
Now Mr. William C. Bullitt, Ameri
can Ambassador to Prance, is here
and he is a sort of semi-royal, having
been decorated by the wine growers
of Southern Prance, decked in royal
robes and given a title, Knight of the
Orape—maybe, Prince of Wine Tast
ers—one who knows the duties of
the office. Mr. Bullitt has been lavish
In his entertaining in Paris, and is
reported to be America's most be
loved representative to that republic
since the late Mr. Herrick.
It’s fine that Mr. Charlie Taft got
to the White House last week before
that 6-foot fence was built, for when
that is completed it will be more

difficult to get in there. It’s to be
built on the old solid granite founda
tion. This reminds us that some day,
sometime, somewhere, there is going to
eminate from the White House the
spiciest lot of memoirs ever sent forth
to appease the hungry curiosity of a
reading public. The public will be
treated to an intimate picture—home
ly, but true—of the innermost work
ings of life in the mansion through
five administrations.
It is not perhaps generally thought,
but Mrs. Hoover, who is quiet and con
servative. was one of the best beloved
mistresses of the mansion. Girl Scouts
adored her, and while she was an ex
acting mistress, she was approachable
at all times, and in sorrow or distress
or illness she was ever ready to lend a
helping hand—if nothing was to be
said about it afterward. In talking
to an old professional friend of hers
not long since, she spoke of the private
charities still carried on here by Mrs.
Hoover. Charities which would not
come under public charity; she said
the checks ample in sum were sent reg
ularly and dispensed so that the left
hand did not know what the right
was giving. When the President was
•working in his office until the wee
.'mail hours of the morning, as he
frequently was during his last year
here, she would often wait for him,
and would take that time for corre
spondence. going over her private
charities and working out plans for
some project in which she was inter
ested. Then when her husband came
in there was a simple supper, or if in
winter a hot drink of some kind.
