THE FRONT COVER: Artist Nat Youngblood accompanied
President-elect Kennedy from Washington to Palm Beach
the night John F. Kennedy, jr., was born (see page 6). The
oil portrait and the pen-and-ink sketches were made aboard
the President-elect's airplane, the Caroline, and at the Palm
Beach airport.
MORE ABOUT THE KENNEDYS: The wife of the President
elect also comes in for some special attention in this issue.
On pages 8 and 9, Frances hide of our women’s department
staff gives us an interestingly anecdotal closeup of “Our Versa
tile First Lady-to-Be.” But on page 14 we turn our attention
back to her husband with a novel bit on “Hat Styles for the
Head Man."
“THE GOOD OLD DAYS": In reminiscing about their collective
158 years service with the District Government, members of the
Dick family have fond memories of past inaugural parades (see
pages 16 and 17). Unlocking the file of the past also brought
forth recollections that should evoke memories for other Wash
ington old-timers. Herbert Dick recalls, for example, the year
1910, when the number of women employes in the entire Dis
trict Government could be counted on the fingers of one hand
. . . Miss Ruth E. Dick remembers her early teaching years,
when school buildings, designed exclusively for daytime use,
had gas lights only in the principal’s office. On stormy or over
cast winter days, she recalls, teachers had to devise ways to
keep the children from going to sleep in the dim and cozy at
mosphere of a room lit only by the warm glow of a pot-bellied
stove ... They also remember the “3-cent lunch room," where
one could buy any item on the menu, from a ham sandwich to a
thick wedge of apple pie, for just 3 cents. Because of these and
other memories, the Dicks echo brother Ralph's observation:
“Let me tell you, it's been a real pleasure."
THE NEW LOOK: It will be all right to refer to a freight car as
a “she”-just like a ship-if a railroad operation in Brunswick,
Md., becomes a universal practice. It seems that tired old
freight cars are given “beauty" treatments there and emerge
looking very desirable. J. J. Everhart, boss of the "beauty
shop" run by # the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, says the revital
ized cars look so good they are preferred to new ones by ship
pers because of the materials that go into them. For more on
this, read “Freight-Car Beauty Salon” on pages 18 and 19.
FYI: The answer to the question on page 14 is: TTie last picture.
