THOUSAND / ~ Joel McCrea Crusades for Women Clerks in the Senate By JACK STINNETT Wartime Hope Ridings Miller, society editor and commentator for the Washington Post, has got herself a cause and it's a honey. Hope is carrying the torch for those women secretaries of the Senators who arc barred from the Senate floor. This is an ancient custom, not a rule. The rule says noth- ng about sex. It merely states that clerks to committees and clerks to Senators, in discharge of their duties, may walk the Senate floor. By custom, however — a custom dating back to the days 'when women's suffrage was considered an insufferable subject — women are barred from the Senate floor. Although the custom has been broken down to allow the petticoat Senators to lake their seats, it has never been relaxed for female secretaries, The male secretaries patter in and out without a challenge. -The ladies cool their heels at the cloakroom entrances, while Senate staff messengers try to find their bosses and persuade them to leave the floor. The ladies, Hope says, are, pretty indignant about the whole thing and are planning a march 6n the Senate floor if something isn't done about it soon. They figure that if it ever comes to a showdown, Charles L. Watkins, parliamentarian, and Vice President Wallace, or svhocvcr else happens to be presiding, will have to rule with them. As n matter of fact Walkins already has tipped them off in private that that would be the only possible ruling. A check of the Senate discloses 24 — or exactly one-fourth of the Senators — have No. 1 secretaries on the distaff side. One of the belter "rod tape" stories going the rounds these days is on Chester Bowles, OPA chief, who really has cut a lot more than he has unwound since he came to Washington. Fred Vinson's economic stabili zation office called to ask Bowleb ust when he was going to issue a 5rico freeze order on a certain >roduct. "It'll be up currently," said the irisk Mr. Bowles. "You mean," asked his qucs- .ionc'r, "currently like a rabbit or L-urrcntly like a geologist?" A lot of southwestern congressional delegations are sore as t boil on the subject of Fred M. Vin son, Economic Stabilizer. Toufih, Iwo-fistcti, nold-the-line Mr. Vinson first placed the ceiling price on cattle-on-the-hoof belov what their cattlemen constituents were asking and only a few days later denied the oil producers a recommended 35-cents-a-barrel increase in the price of crude. Some day soon, an analysis of Mr. Vinson's rulings will be forthcoming. One thing can be said right now: he is one man who is NOT running for vice president — or any other political office.

Although the cleric calls the names of a dozen potential 'dark horses every time he lists a quor um, circumstances thus far have kept nny senator from publicly declaring he will be a presidential candidate a'nd may combine to keep all of them in the background. The Democrats, of course, aren't likely to announce anything until they find out what President Roosevelt is going to do about a fourth term, a decision few of them think will be made finally until a few days before the 1944 convention. Some of the Republicans listed as possible candidates come from slates where the Republican governor is already in the running, a'nd others just chuckle at the idea that they are being mentioned. At least six Republicans are in the dark horse category, including Senators Taft and Burton of Ohio, Vandcnberg of Michigan, Revercomb of West Virginia, arid Langer and Nyc of North Dakota. Taft has said he will not be a candidate because Governor John Bricker of Ohio is running. Burton has been proposed quietly by his colleagues who worked with him in support of 'the Ball-Bur'lon-Hill- Hatch postwar bill, but is not giving much thought to it himself. Vandenberg, several tirrfes an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination, wants no riore of it, he says. Langer's ""riends hove .made some quiet moves to interest northwestern delegations in him. Nye has been loomed at times by Gerald L. K. Smith, head of America First, Inc., as presidential timber. Revercomb, who won a surprising victory in the 1942 Senate race in West Virginia, has been advanced in some quarters as a likely candidate if a deadlock develops in he Republican convention. On tho^Democratic side, some serious moves have been made to advance Senator Byrd (D-Va) as a potential candidate, and "Byrd-for- presidcnt" headquarters have been opened in New Orleans. If southern Democrats who are at odds with the New Deal united behind Byrd they could make their weight felt at the' convention, but few think they could prvent President Roosevelt's nomination if he wants fourth term. Senator George (D-Ga) also has been mentioned as a possible candidate of the southern group and friends of Senator O'Daniel D-Tex) are scouting his prospects.

NOT THE PROPER WIFE CHAPTER XXIV rpHE board meeting took place at headquarters. Emily, waiting her turn to speak, looked at her audience in some trepidation. Elsie Edgar smiled at her encouragingly. But Elsie was thinking, It's too bad of Frank . . , Emily was by no means the sort of- daughter-in-law Elsie wanted. She liked to be the social service worker in the family. Nancy amused and rested her. A second Mrs. Edgar who would undoubtedly have her finger in all sorts of civic pies was' not to Mrs, Edgar's liking, Mollie, one of the industrial nurses, was speaking earnestly. Her enthusiasm carried her away! and several members looked at one another with veiled amusement when Mollie spoke in blunt terms of the difficulty of proper care of workers under adverse conditions, and placed the blame of the typhoid outbreak at the proper doors—which led to the workers' houses. Mrs. Edgar stirred and reddened painfully. Emily's little speech was a sympathetic selection of case histories. The story of a sick child, saved in time. The story of a child, too often home during school hours, as the visiting nurse could easily see. Yet it was not a matter for a truant officer. There was no one at home to care for the patient a'nd the younger children, except this child. Matters were better arranged through the father of the family, through the V. N. A. itself, and the doctor at the dispensary. She told them about the Elsters, and eventually about Mrs. Reman. The Reman case interested them, they leaned forward and she knew she had their whole attention. She spoke briefly but graphically of the house in which she had found AFTER the meeting Mrs. Edgar •• beckoned her. She said, in her dominant, forthright way, "You did very well, Emily. I agree with Miss Ansing that direct contact with actual nursing problems through the nurses themselves is invaluable to the board." She patted Emily's shoulder and smiled. "Why don't you come up and dine with us sometime, my dear? I hear of you through Frank but I don't see you often enough," she said. Emily had a word with Miss Ansing later. She said, "She's furious! Not only about the mill district, but about the Reman case." "I noticed you mentioned the street," said Miss Ansing. She sighed. "It's too bad. Of course I don't know Mrs. Edgar well. I didn't get the impression that she was—annoyed. If she was, it's a pity; we can't afford to antagonize her." Emily said, distressed, "I didn't mean to—anger her, just point out ..." She stopped as Miss Ansing touched her arm warningly and turned to speak to the chairman of the board. Frank appearing a night or two later, had a word to say. "What in the world did you do to my mother?" he inquired. "Nothing," said Emily. "Why?" "She's seriously anroyed," said Frank. "Is that why she asked me to dinner?" "Perhaps she plans to poison you." He shrugged his shoulders, "Oh, forget it," lie said, "she'll get over it." , But he was uneasy. He wasn't sure. His mother had waited up for him the night of the board meeting. She had said, marching him into the library, "I want you to slop seeing so much of; Emily Hall" PRANK was aghast. ,..--?But I thought . . ," he be- gar^ahd she interrupted forcefully, ''.You thought Millicent was my closest friend? She is. That has nothing to do with the matter. Has Emily ever spoken to you about the small section houses?" "Yes," he admitted uneasily, "but—" "That's enough. She told the entire board tonight about the conditions in the Elderberry block. You know that we expect to dispose of that property as soon as the government makes up its mind where the new defense houses are to go. It would be sheer folly to spend money on half a dozen ramshackle buildings which are bringing next to no rent now, As for the mill houses, the city hasn't complained of them, and the inspectors are perfectly satisfied. EmHy's a good girl, no doubt, but she's a meddler and I cannot tolerate meddlers," Frank had lost his head. He had said that Emily didn't meddle, that he was seriously in love with her and that he was determined to marry her if she would have him. "Of course she'll have you," said his mother scornfully, "why shouldn't she?" She went on, "However, if she does accept you, Frank, you will be marrying her without my consent." Absurd. He was free, white and well over 21. But if his mother, through Carter, wished to demote him at the mill, if she wished to throw him out altogether, without as* much as an allowance, she could. She was telling him now just what he might expect if he persisted in this silly infatuation. "But I thought you liked Emily." "I do like her. But she is not the proper wife for you . . ." She added, "And if you have any influence with her, Frank/ I'd advise her not to be too carried away by her—job. Otherwise she might not have it very long, in Cranberry," 'To B» of accuracy in words, but that it has some ; deeper associations of considera'tion for others and loyalty to some inner' slandard of what is right. A minister, like a doctor, is 'often faced ' with some ' difficult situation in dealing with the troubled and the sick. Even if he felt it wis.er in every case to tell the bald, plain trulh, and possibly hasten a palienl's death, he might not be free to do so because of the requesl and altitude of the patient's family. This is one of various situations in which formal, exact stalement of fact: is to be distinguished from what is really true and proper in the circumstances. It is a matter for large and interesting debate in any adult Bible class, and the lobphole, if one believes that it canno,t, always be avoided, can be fplsely enlarged pretentiously to justify any sort of lying. Perhaps from a non-Biblical scource one may define the exact borderline. It is in the realm of personal integrity. Shakespeare says: This above all: to thine ownself be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be-false to any man. Inlegrity of soul is the prime essenlial of truth. One may be truthful in words and a liar at heart. The essence 1 qf y untruthfulness is deceit. The ^difference between a liar and<-a truth-teller is not difficult to sense or define, despite all question of niceties about illness, kindliness, and all the devices by which we soften, or withhold, the plain or full truth because of some very worthy motive. In the great range of life, in business, in relationships of trust, in mailers of law, in everything in relalion lo which some quili- fying circumstance is not present, the very foundations of life and i society depend upon honesty of speech. One's word must be as good as one's bond, or it is worth nothing at all. The devil is the father of lies, and lying is devilish in its nature and in its effects. Dr. Watson may have been justified in his statement as he understood and intended it, but it was never- erlheless a careless and an unwise statement. We might far better give heed to the words of Jesus, and let our Yea be Yea and our Nay, Nay, remembering that whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. The sort of integrity that we call "truthfulness" is at the very foundation of honest relationships between man and man. In fact, it is the cornerstone of society.
