Lord'lnverchapel Pokes Fun
n At Diplomats in Meeting Press
The new British Ambassador to
Washington yesterday put on a
comedy performance which drew
gales of laughter and app' pi.s? from
veteran newsmen who tilled every
available seat at the National Press
Club to see the envoy in his first
“formal” public appearance in this
country.
Avoiding topics related to world
affairs, Lord Inverchapel frequently
| went "off the record” in his 30
! minute address, which included a
burlesque reading of a typical dip
i lomatic pronouncement—"the usual
ambassadorial guff”—and a can
| did admission that he carried an
extra pair of false teeth in his “little
black bag.”
Only in his opening remarks did
the Ambassador touch on serious
matters, referring to the need for
“good faith” between Britain and
America. Lord Inverchapel said
there had been times when, as an
observer, he had been saddened by
an evident lack of such mutual
faith. The remedy, he suggested,
lies in "getting to know more about
each other.”
Lord Inverchapel said he had
known ambassadors all his life and
did not “think much of them,” add
ing: “I know you don’t, either.
They wear spats and are always
running around with little black
bags trying to look mysterious and
important.”
The envoy declared he had no
spats. “I propose, however, to ac- ■
cept a pair which has just been
offered me by the president of your
club.” he said. ‘‘I shall wear them
If you Insist, but only if you Insist,
and I want you to understand I
have none now. I do have a little
black bag—some one gave it to me—
but if you care to look into it you
will find only a few pipes and an,
alternate set of teeth.”
Lord Iverchapel told the press1
corps he was “not afraid of it."
Looking around at a battery of
British Embassy personnel seated
with him at the head table, the
Ambassador said: "The only peo
ple here who are afraid are my
advisers. I may say I think there
are rather too many of them.”
In reply to questions from the
floor at the conclusion of his speech,
Lord Inverchapel announced he in
tended to join an Indian tribe if in
vited "because I only need feathers
to look like a chief.” He also said
he believed Britain and America
would be able to co-operate success
fully with Russia in the mainte
nance of peace.
Asked whether an American loan
would really help Britain, the Am
bassador replied, “You betcha!”
