g, HUGH s. JOHNSON
WASHINGTON. - Mr. Murphy
moves up to the Supreme court
and Mr. Robert Jackson becomes
attorney general. There isn‘t any
use saying anything about it‘except
that it could have been worse. There
a little to distinguish these gentle
men for such positions except that
my are radical New Dealers and
Third Termites. .
It might be supposed that an ex
perienced jurist, or at least a law
’aofpassable distinction, would be
better qualified for a place on the
highest court in. Christendom than
. zealot and lame-duck politician
without presumption to either pro.
teasional qualification. But Mr.
welt does not think so and here
in particular it might have been
worse. Indeed, it has been worse,
as witness the appointment of Hugo
Black.
The new attorney general is a
brilliant young man distinguished
most in ofllcial position by business
miting utterances and demagogic
speeches.
Mr. Roosevelt may .now in words
condemn such tactics in a plea for
mity as ranging “class against
class." but this appointment of
about the most efiective oratorical
rabble rouser in his official family
is sure to send a chill down the
spines of the “economic royalists.”
Tolerant as Wild Cats.
It actions speak louder than
words. these two appointments just
about cancel out the heart of the
President’s speech opening congress
and asking the country to balance
the budget by increased national in
come through united etfort. “calm
ness. tolerance and co-operative
wisdom."
These radicals have about as
much tolerance as a cage full of
lurpentined wild cats plus a couple

The appointment of Mr. Edison as
lecretary of the navy was a recent

have been expected.
Perhaps Mr. Edison has been put

But I have saved the prize for the

Lord Beaverbrook, British lord of
the press, says that President Wil
son. General Pershing and eight

to think that the war debts would
be canceled and that the money was
in lieu of immediate manpower."
It is a poor time to revive this
Uncle Shylock British alibi. The al
lies never asked us for anything
in that war that we did not give with
out a single selfish reservation.
Lord Beaverbrook's is a welsher's
squawk.

Merry-Go- Round
'White House Expense Up $6.000
. . . Frank Knox, Republican,
Could Have Had Navy Post in
Cabinet.
By Drew Pearson and Robert Allen
WASHINGTON—The new bud
get reveals that Roosevelt pruned
almost every agency in the govern
mgt—except his own.
The White House budget actually
has been increased by $6.000 rather
that decreased, and now calls for
$152,750 to run the Executive Man
son and grounds during the next
fiscal year.
The increase, however, is for a
new coat of paint. In July and Au
gust of this year, the White House
will be painted to keep it up to its
traditional name, and that paint
job will cost $6,000.
Aside from this, the White
House budget has not been pruned a
penny, although other government
agencies were. The amount for
“Travel and Entertainment” re
‘mains as $30,000, as against $25,000
;two years ago.
1 Roosevelt is the most traveled
3President since Taft, and the cost
or going to Hyde Park and back,
Iplus Warm Springs and other trips
garnount allowed in the budget—de
ispite the fact that the budget was
increased by $5.000 two years ago.
' The Roosevelts also entertain
imuch more than their predecessors.
and exceed their budget on this. In
’both cases—travel and entertain
ment—the President and his wife
‘dip into their own pockets to make
up the deficit.
Wages of the White House staff
total about SIOO,OOO. The housekeep
‘er gets $3.300, the gardener $2,500,
Ithe first cook $1,620, plus a wide as
-Isortmen-t of other cooks, butlers,
‘kitchen helpers, housemen and
‘maids.
The bill for heat, light, and elec
tric power .(to drive the elevator,
mechanical appliances in the kit
chen, etc.) is $11,200. The laundry
bill is $4.800.
Knox Turns Cabinet Job Down
Here is the inside story of Roose
velt’s secret offer of the navy sec
retaryship to Col. Frank Knox:
The Chicago Publisher and G. O.
P. candidate for vice president was
asked to come to Washington for a
private talk with the President at
4 pm. Saturday, December 10.
The President lost no time in set--
ting down to brass tacks. He re.
minded Knox or the editorial he had
printed in his paper shortly after
the start of the European war, urg
ing a “coalition” cabinet with sev
eral Republican members, in order
to meet the emergency in a “na
tional" rather than a partisan man
ner.
“I think that was good advice
then. and I think it is equally sound
now," Roosevelt said in effect. “As
you know, the navy secretaryship
is open and I’d like very much to
have you take it. It's a very im
portant job and I think you’re Just
the man, Frank. to fill the bill.”
“Thank you, Mr. President," re
plied Knox. “! appreciate deeply
the honor you pay me. And if there
‘were a real emergency I would be
entirely at your service. But I don’t
,think emergency conditions exist
‘any longer, and under the circum-

Pennsylvania Republicans are re
ported to have held a secret con
.clave and turned thumbs down on
ex-Sen. David Reed as the man to
run against Joe Guffey in 1940. Their
candidate will be Gilbert Mason
Owlett. Republican national com
mitteeman from Wellsbom, Pa. . .
Shortly after Secretary Ickes issued
his blast against Paul McNutt, the
two men bumped into each other at
a cocktail party given in honor of
John and Anna Roosevelt Boetti
ger. They shook hands cordially.
There were no icy glances.
Grover Whalen dropped in at the
state department the other day to
claim his passport. It was lifted by
immigration officials when Whalen
landed in New York recently, in
accordance with neutrality regula
tions. Having crossed 30 frontiers.
Whalen prim the passport as a
memento.
