Scores USIA Post BY FRANCES UDE A resolution denouncing the post of “chief of religious policy” in the United States Information Agency as a vio lation of the traditional sepa ration of church and State in this country was adopted yes terday by the Daughters of the American Colonists. The action was directed at the office held by Dr. D. Elton Trueblood, author and profes sor of philosophy and religion, now on leave from Earlham College in Richmond, Ind. Dr. Trueblood's title is chief of religious information of the USIA. Miss Dorothy Mitchell, a member of the District society, objected to the resolution on the grounds that Dr. True blood's work is in the field of religious information and the position doesn’t imply that he dictates religious policy. Later a spokesman for the USIA told The Star that Dr. Trueblood’s title was changed from chief of religious policy to chief of religious informa tion shortly after he took office last April in order to clarify the position. The DAC resolu tion quoted from an Associated Press dispatch of March 7, 1954, when the appointment was announced. Based on Constitution The Daughters declared the traditional “separation of ec clesiastical from political realms” is based on the Con stitution and recommended that the post be abolished at once. The resolution was approved by a standing vote after a lengthy discussion. Mrs. Cyrus G. Martin, State regent of Tennessee, was applauded when she warned that what ’appears to be a perfectly in nocent post” could develop “sooner or later into a dicta torship in that field.” A suggestion that it would strengthen the resolution to leave out Dr. Trueblood's name was opposed by Mrs. Edwin S. Lammers of Texas. She said the name Was included merely for clarification and was not intended to reflect upon Dr. Trueblood. The resolution was one of 11 adopted at the final session of the society’s 34th annual General Assembly at the May flower Hotel. The report was presented by Mrs. William L. Ainsworth, resolutions chair man. The Daughters oposed any revision of the United Nations charter which would reduce the sovereignty of the United States and reaffirmed their “adamant stand” against “any and all forms of world govern ment.” They also reaffirmed support of the Bricker amend ment.

The Daughters also called on Congress to appro priate generous funds for investigations of subversive activities and, in another resolution, urged further in vestigations of ’ tax-exempt foundations. * In the field of education, the society asked for laws re quiring the teaching of Amer ican history in public schools and State-supported colleges and universities. It also urged a more general display of the American flag, not only in public buildings and institu tions but by private citizens. Support of a bill authoriz- m ing funds to copy “names of people whom the English ships brought to America between 16&7 and 1807” was passed over the opposition of one member who said it would overlap work already being done i The report of the tellers confirmed the election of Mrs. Frank G. Trau of Sherman, Tex., as president, succeeding Mrs. Nathan R. Patterson of Tulsa. Okla. In the only elec tion contest, Mrs. Fred G. Koenig of Alabama was named vice president for the Southern section. Dorothy Fosdick, author and former member of the State Department policy planning staff, addressed the society at a luncheon yesterday on the topic, “The Citizen and For eign Policy.” The speaker stressed the importance of public opinion based on facts, rather than generalities, and warned against an emotional approach to issues in the for eign affairs field. Mrs. Goodwin Receives Decoration at Embassy Getting the wife of a Su preme Court Justice to do dishes or the wife of a top bracket Government official to “habla espagnol” is all in a day’s work for Mrs. Clarence Norton Goodwin. Washington’s No. 1 hostess may be open to conjecture but not the town’s most indefatig able party-giver. For over a decade now Au gusta Goodwin has been party giving and plugging her fa vorite cause of inter-American solidarity. Yesterday Ambassador Chiri boga of Ecuador turned the party tables on Mrs. Goodwin. He not only staged a recep tion in her honor but presented her with the Decoration of Na tional Order to the Merit in the degree of “Commendador.” On hand to congratulate the wife of Judge Clarence Norton Goodwin was one of her most dependable coffee cup driers— Mrs. Harold Burton. TODAY IN ew. . rrr sljeJoenmgJHaf WOMEN’S WORLD SOCIAL NEWS—HOME—FOOD THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 1955 Election ot New Officers Leads Convention Agenda BY RUTH DEAN The National Society, Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America was to hold triennial election of of ficers today at the closing ses sion of its 57th General Court at the Shoreham Hotel. Miss Laura Clark Cook of Hillsdale, Mich., who has been serving as the society’s vice president, is running for the office of national president on an uncontested slate. Miss Cook presided at the gala banquet last night which opened the society’s annual convention, and paid tribute to the memory of the Swedish- American patriot, John Han gon. Mr. Frank Worthington Mel vin. former governor of the Swedish Colonial Society, gave the principal address. Mr. Melvin declared that “few people realize” that John Hanson was the first President of the United States under the Articles of Confederation form The wife of Supreme Court Justice Burton was among the many members of the White House Spanish - Portuguese Study Group who attended yesterday's party. When this group, composed of wives of Washington VlP’s, was incorporated in 1943 Augusta Goodwin was the guiding light—and still is. The club’s slogan “For the Cause” came from none other than Mrs. Eisenhower, one of the original joiners. “I don’t care if no one in the class ever learns to speak a word of Spanish. The inter est in South America is the thing, Gussie said once. Nevertheless, a lot of Span ish has been learned by these women who meet on Tuesdays at the Pan American Union and stay afterwards for coffee and cookies. Afterwards official wives like Mrs. Burton roll up their sleeves and help dry and put away the coffee cups. * B-2 of government which first united the 13 Colonies as a nation in 1781. He also declared little credit is given the patriot for his action as head of the Mary land delegation to the Conti nental Congress when he urged Maryland’s refusal to accept the articles until several other of the Colonies should re linquish their claims to the' Northwest Territory, thus pav ing the way for later creation of the Western States from the territory. Banquet Guests Mrs. Charles Blinn of Phila delphia, immediate past na tional president of the society and a descendant of John Hanson, introduced Mr. Mel vin. Another guest at the banquet was Mrs. Margareta Soderblom, Assistant Cultural Attache of the Swedish Em bassy, who also made a short speech of tribute to John Hanson. Following the banquet, Mr. and Mrs. Blinn entertained at a reception for 32 descendants of the American patriot, in cluding Mrs. Robert B. Car ney, wife of the Chief of Naval Operations; Mrs. William Sat terlee Pye. wife of Admiral Pye, and Mrs Archie Soucheck. Other guests attending were Admiral and Mrs. Leland Lov ette, Comdr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Hoffman and Mr. and Mrs. John Briscoe of Baltimore. Memorial Set In addition to electing of ficers today, the society was to hold a memorial service for deceased members and to hear reports from its 48 State dele gations. Most of the society’s work is centered around pres ervation of historical buildings and monuments. Other uncontested candi dates for national office afe Mrs. Brant T. Roberts of Bal timore, vice president; Mrs. Charles A. Baker of Lima, Ohio, chaplain; Mrs. Ferdi nand Friedi of Belleville, 111., recording secretary; Mrs. Val Taylor of Uniontown, Ala., corresponding secretary, and Mrs. Ivan Johnson of New York City, treasurer. Flower Mart Committee Meeting Food and flowers were the subjects of discussion when Mrs. Frank G. Wisner enter tained the Flower Mart food committee at tea yesterday in her home. The event, which will be held on Friday, May 6. from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., will take place in the Oak Grove at the Washington Cathedral. This year, the 15th annual mart will have a British theme, and wives of members of the Embassy will serve a tradi tional British tea from 3:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon. Luncheon will be available for early shoppers, and hot dogs and hamburgers, ice cream and soft drinks will not be omitted. The New Scotland Garden Club, which will be decorated as a Scottish kitchen, will dis pense soup—Scotch broth and Creme Senegalese, and home made pastries and cakes. The French bread for which the mart is famous, will also be available. Assisting Mrs. Wisner are Mrs. J. A. McCall-Judson, wife of the First Secretary of the British Embassy; Mrs. John Brass, Mrs. Hector Prud homme, Mrs. Lewis Thompson, Mrs. Herbert Elliston, Mme. de la Grandville, Mrs. Blair Childs, Mrs. John Ackerman and Mrs. Stephen Dorsey. Also present at the tea were Mrs. J. Blaise de Sibour, Mrs. John Clifford Folger, chair man of the mart, and Mrs. W. John Kenney, president of All Hallows Guild, which sponsors the event. Mrs. Eisenhower will cut the ribbon to open the mart at 11 a.m. DARsPutHat On Statue By the Associated Press Because of a motherly con cern lest the father of his country look cold around the ears, a hat has been added to the design of a George Wash ington statue to be erected at Gettysburg, Pa. The statue is sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution, whose president general, Miss Gertrude Carra way, disclosed the design change today. A four-panel bas-relief of the story of Valley Forge, done by New York sculptor C. Paul Jennewein, is being installed in the memorial tower. Out side will be a statue of Wash ington by the same artist, carved out of stone from Rock wood, Ala. Miss Carraway said the origi nal design for this statue had Washington bareheaded. "But we though it would be too cold for him to have his hat off,” said Miss Carraway. so a re vised version puts him under headgear. MARY MARGARET McBRIDE Wiretapping Is Old Stull Telephoning to two of my friends has recently taken on the excitement of an adven ture. That is because their exchanges, it has been re vealed. were among those tapped by professionals for purposes that are not clear. Presumably the tapping has ' now ended, but since we don’t know for sure, we still talk as if we were being eavesdropped on. I vaguely remember tele phone. wiretapping from my reporter days. Only then, it seemed very remote from my life. The late Dutch Schultz, a beer baron turned policy king in the 19305, was tapped so constantly both by law en forcement authorities and by his enemies that whenever he concluded a call, he is sup posed to have snarled to his extra-curricula audience, “Drop dead!” Government employes in Washington have for years taken wiretapping for granted and important public servants with big secrets to protect have talked more or less in code, the way we used to do on the coun try party line which was my first experience with the tele phone. When you d answer your two short, two long rings, you’d sense receivers being carefully lifted off the hook and you’d know they were all there—Miss Jodie, Cousin Lou, one of the Ragsdale girls and so on. So if there was anything you didn’t want them to know, you either spoke cryptically of it or not at all. My only experi ence with a party line since those days was during a sum mer in rural Maine when the telephone in my rented house was on the same line as that of explorer Richard E. Byrd. My admiring curiosity made me take down the receiver al beit shamefacedly, every time I heard his ring but the near est I ever came to listening in on Polar secrets was when the laundry in town lost a gar ment which I understood from j the conversation to have been : a relic of the explorer’s far North past. There was nothing much to do about party-line listening except be careful, but wiretap ping is a matter of open de bate. Some think that under proper conditions, recordings of overheard conversations should be accepted by the court as evidence. But I'm with the strong body of opinion against it. It seems to me that it is of doubtful value, anyway. Certainly judging by escape literature, when persons of evil intent really want to talk things over, far from risking the telephone, they meet at the ringside tables'of noisy night clubs where it is impossible to be overheard. The real reason I’n| against legal wiretapping, though, is plain selfish—if I’m on the exchange tapped I may be listened to. I don’t intend to* launch a life of crime and I have no private bookmaker. But I’d certainly be embar rassed if I ever heard a play back of any telephone con versation of mine. I think I’d almost rather be overheard planning to break into Fort Knox than tapped while furi ously lambasting my manager Announcing- I Mew Heinz Teething tcuifs Latest Addition To Heinz @ Line Os Quality Baby Foods! • HEINZ BABY-FOOD EXPERTS have great news for mothers of teething babies -HEINZ TEETHING BISCUITS!

Privacy, which I prize, is getting to be so rare that I sometimes feel just about the only time people are able to be ttlone is in the shower with the water running. I did read the other day though that if you seal letters with white of egg they cant be steamed open. And at least one fine bit of advice emerges from the wire tapping commotion. Said one expert now in the business of developing tapproof com munications. “the only way to be entirely sure of privacy is to keep your mouth shut.” (Pram Associated Press Newsleatures.)
