Record Breaking Season
Kennedy Residences Are. Chief Attraction
By BERNARD O’BRIEN
** Contributing Writer
PALM BEACH. Fla. (Spe
cial to The Star). Palm
Beach probably is having the
biggest season of its history
and President Kennedy con
tinues to be the resort’s chief
attraction, next to its climate.
People continue coming to
sse the C. Michael Paul home
at 601 North County road,
where the Kennedys spent
the holidays, and the ocean -
front villa of the President’s
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph
P. Kennedy, at 1095 North
Qpean boulevard. This latter
residence is where the First
Family spent last week end.
•At the Chamber of Com
rrterce, people continue to
come in, as they did last year,
to inquire of the Kennedy
address since the former Am
bas&dor does not list his tel
ephone number in the di
rectory. The Social Index,
the blue book of the resort,
carries nearly everyone’s tele
phone number, but not the
Kennedy’s.
The public was able to see
the Paul estate yesterday. It
was one of four homes opened
for the annual house and
garden tour, sponsored by the
Episcopal Churchwomen of
the Bethesda-by-the Sea.
New Device
•When President Kennedy’s
stiff returned last week end
to the winter White House
headquarters at the Palm
Beach Towers they found a
nfw handy little device avail
able.
Heretofore it was a problem
for any of them to wander
Um far from the communi
cations room at the Towers
because important matters
were apt to arise momentar
ily. Now. with the aid of two
sijiall gadgets, slightly larger
than a cigarette pack, they
nn)ay be reached within a 12-
d»ile radius of the hotel.
One box fits into the left
breast pocket and is the re
ceving unit while the other
fits into the right pocket and
is the transmitting unit.
Each staff member has a
secret code calling number
which will be changed at reg
ular intervals. If they should
be further away than the 12-
rhile radius they will still re
ceive a message and can head
for the nearest phone to re
port.
Art Released
Alexander Kirkland, di
rector of Gallery 14, has re
ceived the nod from Mrs.
Robert Kennedy, wife of the
Attorney General, to release
the hitherto closely guarded
secret that Moura Chabor
pointings were playing an
important part In the decor
of the Kennedy home at Mc-
Lean, Va.
to leaving for Wash
ington recently, Mrs. Kennedy
visited the gallery, where
Miss Chabor is again show
ing this year, and she bought
another of the French-Amer
ican artist’s delightfully dif
ferent paintings of Paris and
French childhood scenes.
• Mrs. Kennedy became In
terested In the Chabor work
while here last season and
bought several paintings
which she took north to her
ljome, which she was engaged
in decorating. Reluctant to
have any publicity on the
purchases, she agreed to the
publicity this time as a cour
tesy to the artist.
Appearance
The President’s mother,
Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy, ap
peared the Other night at
the Kiwanls Club benefit
Victor Borge staged a
opmic-pianist show. At the
ijitermission, she was visiting
with Mrs. L. P. Ordway, a
long-time resident of the re
sort.

THE SUNDAY STAR
Watftt'ngten, 0. C., Ftbruory 4, 1942
ROBERT KENNEDY
dency to live a life of delu
sion, Angier Biddle Duke,
State Department’s chief of
protocol, the other afternoon
urged his Society of Four
Arts listeners not merely to
move with change but to try
to direct it.
Mr. Duke based much of
his talk on a frank analysis
of the problems his depart
ment faces in seeking to
maintain good will among the
nationalities pouring today
into Washington in the face
of race relations problems in
the United States.
“One of my responsibilities,”
he explained, “is the well
being of 103 missions accred
ited to the White House . . .
The housekeeping and day
to-day relations between our
Government and these em
bassies are carried on in my
office.”
In a chat with the press
prior to the address, Mr.
Duke did much to disabuse
his listeners of any illusions
that his department is an
official Emily Post bureau,
where hostesses may get ad
vice on what officials sit
above or below the salt.
Mr. Duke’s major concern
is with goodwill rather than
good manners, though it’s ap
parent the two are vitally
entwined.
“Protocol suffers,” he re
marked, "through association
with outmoded diplomatic
procedures.”
Mr. Duke was honored at
a cocktail party after the
talk, given by former Ambas
sador Stanton Griffis, lecture

Sorry, no mail or phone order*,
chairman of the Society of
Four Arts. Mr. Duke served
under Mr. Griffis in Buenos
Aires in 1949.
Invited to meet the Chief
of Protocol were officials of
the Four Arts and a num
ber of personal friends from
the Palm Beach winter colony.
Guests at the party whose
memories recalled the days
of Tony Biddle, one of the
most colorful figures of Palm
Beach’s mid-Twenties his
tory. found that the nephew
of that late soldler-diplomat
bon vivant, had much of
the same family charm. As
Mr. Duke remarked of his
uncle at the press conference:
“The trouble with having a
reputation for charm such
as he had is that it tended
to overshadow his great
abilities.”
With Mr. Duke here was
his assistant, Jay Rutherfurd,
who is a son of Commander
John M .L. Rutherfurd of
Palm Beach.
Mr. Griffis who is quite
active in the community was
honorary chairman of last
Sunday’s Red Cross Ball.

Spends Too Little
The United States spends
far too little time and ef
fort in exporting ideas of
freedom as a means of com
batting Communism, in the
opinion of United States Su
preme Court Justice William
O. Douglas.
Justice Douglas spoke here
the other afternoon at the
Japanese home of Mrs. Henry
Ittleson to a large gathering
of invited guests. The recep
tion was arranged in behalf
of the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America.
Justice Douglas spoke
chiefly in terms of Ideology,
decrying America’s lack of
dynamic policy in dealing
with new nations. He stressed
the need for enlightened
leadership, voiced belief that
this country is at least 15
years behind the times in
dealing with the emerging
new nationalities, and em
phasized his regret of re
liance on arms rather than
understanding.
In conclusion, Justice
Douglas remarked that a
good place to start on a new
policy would be with Red
China, pointing to the effect
feeding “those who hate us”
jr
M
ANGIER BIDDLE DUKE
would have on the rest of
the world.
"Our greatest assets in our
fight,” he said, “are the Con
stitution, the Declaration of
Independence and Lincoln’s
Proclamation of Emancipa
tion.”
Mrs. Ittleson, 86, for years
a leading figure in Palm
Beach life, is known through
out the world for her phil
anthropic work.
