who must be nameless here. had to
fly to this country on wartime busi
ness. That he might know how to
dress for the trans-Atlantic hop, he
consulted the British war informa
tion ofl‘ice as to the route of the
flight and was told that. so far as
could be ascertained, it would be
over the Great Circle, which of
course meant Arctic temperatures,
especially at high altitudes. So from
friends in the RAF. he borrowed”!!!-
inx apparel suitable for sub-zero
conditions. Also he put on two suits
of heavy woolen underwear and very
heavy socks. Being a diabetic on a
strict diet. he laid in 'an ample sup
ply of specially prepared sandwiches
which he carried in his pockets.
When completely equipped. he found
that he was so overstuffed he
couldn’t fit into a seat. he being tall
and large framed anyway. So he
sat on the floor. '
Warmth: In what seemed a re
markably short space of time, the
plane started to descend. Being un
able to see out. the overstuffed Brit
on of course did not know where he
was. But he soon learned that the
stop was Lisbon. He realized then
that he was wrongly clad but there
was nothing he could do about a
clothing shift as the plane tarried
only long enough to take on fuel. The
next stop was Northern Africa and
then equatorial Africa. By that
time. the Londoner was in an almost
liquid state He continued to suffer
until he reached this country when
he was able to borrow lighter cloth
ing and dispose of forgotten sand
wiches which, needless to say. were
quite high. But because of hia
length. he couldn’t find any trousers
to fit and that’s why he arrived in
Washington with the lower part or
his body encased in a blanket.
Apprehension: In direct contrast
was another gentleman who had to
make the crossing via the Great Cir-I
cle but who didn’t have time to as-’
scmble a temperature-delimg outfit.
He thought he solved his problem
by obtaining an electric heating pad.
By putting that in the back of his
coat and plugging into an outlet. he
figured that even if the mercury
did drop away below zero he would
not suffer. When it came time to
go. he was assigned to a bomber;
‘l‘hat was all right but his quarters
were in the bomb hay and search
as he would he could and no place
to connect that heating phd. ‘Not only
did he shiver his way over the ocean
but he was in constant fear lest the
pilot make a lever mistake and 3
dump him as he would a bomb. ;

Pea Soup Is Senate’s ,
Favorite Dinner Dish
The senate will have its bills and
its debates—but it must have its pea
soup. too! , A _
When congress convened in 1943
and the senate dining room was
opened for business. pea soup ap
peared on the menu for the 40th
straight year Though priced at
only 15 cents. it is the most popular
fare on the table. ‘
It’s a simple dish. too. It consists
of three pounds of small navy pea
beans. washed and run through hot
water until the beans are white
again, and then put on the fire with
four quarts of hot water. One and
one-half pounds of smoked ham
hocks are boiled for 2% hours. An
onion chopped in a little butter is
added and then the whole thing is
seasoned with salt and pepper.
_ In Washington. that's a capital
dish. ‘
Cut-tall Deliveries
The great American habit of
"armchair" shopping is out for the
duration. Curtailment of unneces

can buying, elimination of call
backs and special trips are rapidly
converting it to “armful shopping."
Women in many sections of the
country have already learned how
to use a shopping bag. Why this
emphasis on carrying all the pack
ages possible? Simply this: every
bundle carried helps save a delivery.
