Yule Trees Won't Provide Mink,
Reaular Sellers Tell Roosevelts
By the Associated Press
—Christmas tree dealers here cast
a baleful glance at Elliott Roosevelt's
retail Christmas tree venture today
and declared the balsams they sold
were superior to the spruces from
Val-Kill farm on the old Roose
velt estate.
Referring to Mr. Roosevelt’s sale
of any tree for $1, Charles Burlin
game, a dealer, said “The spruce trees
on Elliott's lot look pretty but along
with his drop in prices goes a drop
In needle* when you get them in
Mr. Burlingame ’ said he kept
spruce trees on hi* lot just to show
his customers the superiority of
Earl del Santo, another dealer,
joined Mr. Burlingame in claiming
that most customers “demand bal
sams.” At the same time, referring
to the fact that Mr. Roosevelt’s
wife, Faye Emerson, helped him sell
more than 900 trees yesterday while
wearing a mink coat, Mr. Del Santo
said that “if Mr. Roosevelt had to
make his money selling Christmas
trees, his wife would not be at the
lot wearing a mink coat."
Mr. Roosevelt, who is engaged in
farming with his mother, has been
selling the trees which his father
planted while he was President, at
a wholesale price of 65 cents a tree
in 100 lots. His decision to sell
at retail came after a New York
visit when, he said, he saw 15-foot
trees selling for as high as >35.

barrels of oil a day to the Eastern
Hemisphere and that world demand
was increasing.
American construction crews along

news conference before addressing

“How am I going to live in Wash
ington on ‘$1 a year unless you
bring back the OPA and cut prices?”
he asked.
The President turned to Admiral
William D. Leahy, his chief of staff,
and suggested maybe we'd better
put him back on the Navy payroll.
Mr. Daniels, who has watched
the Government operate from an
“inside” seat more than 50 years,
told reporters after the news confer
ence that he was glad to hear the
Chief Executive express the con
viction that ultimate peace would
be achieved.
"I’m tired of hearing these war :
mongers,” he said. “They ought :
to be gagged. They ought to talk 1
about peace. If you talk about war,
the people will think war. If you
talk peace they will think peace.”
Mr. Daniels said talk of compul
sory military training is “talk of
war.” 1
“You can get all the volunteers 1
you want if you make the service ;

around the world and educate ’em
