major curtailment of the wide
powers it grants the President,

This is particularly true of the

The unannounced Omaha pow

the Chicago m etir.g, Willkie has
declared for tile lend-lease bill
and turned the party almost up

r ORD HALIFAX I’OSLS
Fr m the point of vi w of the
pro-. Lard Halifax has gel off to
a good Hart. To be sure, lie did
n’t pose for the cameras with a
cat on his sh ml ler as did
the 1- : L-orth Lothian. (The sup
erst it Sous are now word ring
ab -ul that black cat.) But Hali
fax did gtve new -men a chance
to get at him, and he proved to
be less frigid than expected.
When Halifax came to the
State Department, one day after
his arrival, the news writers, the
newsreelers and the ‘'stills" all
had a go at him before he got on
the safe sid. of Hull’s door. Later
the photographers were allowed
to walk right into Hull’s office
and take pictures of the two
statesmen together behind Hull’s
desk.
After his talk with Hull, Hali
fax invit-d the press into the
diplomatic reception room, where
with his one good arm (his left
hand is missing) he lit a cigarette
and answered questions with a
deep voice and a wan smile.
Oddity at this conference was
the presence of the German news
man, Kurt Sell, correspondent
for the official Nazi news agency.
DNB. Sell busi'y took notes
while Halifax was saying, “Wh- n
•he history of this war comes to
written, it will say that Hith r
■t. the war in June of 19-40.”
NOTE: Accompanying Halifax
ft m L: r was Charles Peake,
former chief -of press relations of
the British F reign Office who

minute before sailing, members
of the crew of the battleship

HOOVER’S AMENDMENTS
Herbert Hoover mad another
secret sorties into the Capital—
iis second in a month.
On his previous visit he con
ferred wtih a few political and
press intimates about his cam
paign to force the British to open
hi. ir blockade to permit ship
ment of food to Nazi-occupie
France. But this time he had the
[ease-lond bill on his mind.
As on his first trip. Hoover
held forth at the home of Wil
liam Castle, soft-spoken Under
S.cr tary of Stale in his Cabinet,
c osc adviser of Colonel Lind
bergh, and one of the master
minds of isolation. * For the oc
cassion, Castle gave a private din
ner and invited a small group of
Republican isolationist leader,
among them S nators Vanden
berg and Taft.
The ex-President vigorous^ de
nounced the lend-lease bill as
‘■dictatorial" and urged that ev
e.y effort be made to "blackout
as h expressed it, the broad
pawc: would give Roos< v. ::
to aid Britain.
According to Hoover’ e- “.ra
tion of his position, he fav r
bill under which the Brs’.ish
would be lent a stated sum of
money for the purchase of arm
aments and materials her , but
only after putting up as collat
eral British capital invested in
the U. S.
Hoover expressed a desire to
have his ideas offer'd as amend
ments when the bill is debated
n the Senate, and it was agreed
that he should draft the amend
ments.
NOTE: All present at the din
ner voiced hot disapproval of
Willkie’s endorsement of the
Roosevelt bill and junket to Lon
don. The term “irresponsible”
was used several times to de
scribe his action.
THE NEW BRAIN TRUSTER
Tom Corcoran is famous for
manf things, one of them b.ing
his lack of punctuality. Always
rushed with innumerable jobs, he
got hours behind with his en
gga: ments, and his favorite time
for catching up with correspond •
ence was Sunday afternoon and
night.
Corcoran's first-born daughter
arrived several days after the
doctors had predicted and the dy
namic brain-truster took the de
lay very hard. But not his beaut
eous wife, Peggy.
She was calm and certain ev
erything would be all right. Af
. or wards a fri nd asked her why
;he had been so confident.
"Oh" shiled Peggy "who ever j
icard of a Corcoran being on
itne for an appointment?
