The latest is over the President' order moving 12 government agencies with approximately 10,000 employes to other cities. This "decentralization" of govern ment has been talked for n long and a few small agencies have been transferred. These, however, were mostly regional offices which have been transferred to other cities ne.ir- by. Although it was known that the budget bureau, under Director Harolt L> Smith, one of the President's close advisors, had been studying the pos- hibilities of booting some agencies out of Washington to make way for the defense hordes pouring in, "insiders' Mad predicted just recently that nothing ever would be done about it. Then pop out of the box, the President issues his order, moving Rural Electrification and Farm Security to "I. Louis, the Patent Office to New York; the Securities and Exchange Commission, Alien Registration and several others .to Philadelphia, the Wage and House division and one other'agency to Pittsburgh; and several including the Railroad Retirement board and the Office of Indian Affairs, to Chicago. After that came the storm, Members of congress, as usual, were in the thick |(0 f it. Some of them called it silly and. '"ridiculous."

Friday Music Club Has Important Meeting at J. C. Cnrlton Home Seventeen members of the Friday Music club assembled at the home of Mrs. J. C. Carlton Friday afternoon tor the bi-monthly meeting. A program on "Fundamental Forms" was presented by Mrs. J. E. Hamill with stress being placed on theme variations. To illustrate variations in popular swing tunes, Mrs. Hamill rendered a medly of popular music. Miss Harriot Story played a Stephen Foster composition in her illustra- '•on. Mrs. Carlton, president of the club, presided at an important business session. The club voted to contribute their Bundles for Britain to the local welfare unit and §5 was contributed I to the Red Cross. A music dictionary und reference jook was presented to the club by Mrs. R. M. LaGrone, Sr. In connection with the club's books, a com- mttee was appointed to secure o nusic club shelf at the library in the :ity hall. A commMtce composed of Mrs ienry Haynes, Mrs. George Ware, and Mrs. C. C. McNeil, was appointed to elect uniforms suitable for the choral lub. ATI invitation was extended to the lub members to have a luncheon a IE home of Mrs. George Ware durin he month so that the club can listei o the Saturday operas in a group Oglesby P. T. A. Members Urged to Attend January Meeting Members of the Oglesby P T A will meet at the school Tuesday after noon at 3 o'clock. This being the first meeting of the year, 1942, Mrs. Martin Pool, president urges a full attendance. In addition, the Patent Office basement contains 1,600 cases of records, with an overall weight of nearly 8,000 tons. This doesn't include the patent office's scientific library and the examiner's records. The SEC also is against transferring to Philadelphia and Wage and Hours is getting up a petition to move to Richmond, Va., instead of Pittsburgh. One compromise measure proposed is that the patent office and S'EC moves be made temporary for the duration and that files of the former not be transferred. One of the government personnel' expels says his survey indicates 5,000 of the affected workers are eager to move and that twice that many office workers will transfer from other agencies immediately if they can work in the cities named instead of here. Several higher government officials say all the argument is just a lot of sound of fury which will avail nothing—"because this is just the beginning." Budget Director Smith, in making his announcement, admitted that his bureau's survey of decentralization possibilities had not been completed.

HOLLYWOOD-Bing Crosby, who, s known as quite a horseman in these oarts, was having horse trouble on the set of "Holiday Inn" He and everybody else. They had been having it all day. It looked like a simple shot. Here it was spring in Connecticut—Easter Sunday, in fact—and people were coming out of a country church. Some of the cuties looked like chorus girls even if they were carrying Bibles, and some of the gents looked like actors on parole from Broadway In general, though, they looked acceptably like people leaving a country church in the spring. At this point the vigilant camera picked out Mr. Crosby and Marjorie Reynolds, the latter a slim dish in yellow, and followed them to and into a buggy. The horse wasn't tied to a hitching post or anything and presumably had been content to stand there all through the service sniffing j. th . e . ?PPl e blossoms and listening to the hymns. ' From some where, perhaps hidden in the choir loft, a 40-piece orchestra struck up Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade." The idea was for the camera to move along with Bing and his girl as they drove slowly past the church and a little way down a road while he asng a chorus of the song. Buggy Trouble As soon as Crosby picked up the reins, the horse geed sharply and started off under some trees. The cramped wheels tipped the buggy, and Miss Reynolds, who until a few weeks ago was being tossed off stagecoaches n western thrillers, looked scared. Handlers leaped to seize the bridle, the scene was stopped, and everybody went back into the church. This sort of thine had been going on 'or six hours. And this was the third nag which bar been brought in to pull the buggy on a drive of some 30 yards. The horses didn't always shy at the wight lights and" noise; mostly they just walked too fast, reaching the end of the lane und the limits of the camera's movement while Crosby still had several bars to sing. "If I'd known you couldn't find any real plugs," complained the star, "I'd have brought one of my race horses." Busy Bing "Holiday Inn" is based on a story idea by Irving Berlin, who wanted an excuse to write a song about each of our national holidays. So he did 11 new ones, tossing in "Easter Parade" and "Lazy" from his older numbers. "Lazy" observes no special holiday- just Crosby's personal emancipation from work. Bing sings all 13 songs and actually works harder than anybody, even Fred Astaire, who does eight dances—six with Miss Reynolds and two with Virginia Dale. Miss Dale, by the way, was the studio's original choice for the feminine lead. For three solid months she followed an exhausting rountine of dancing lessons, vocal lessons and beatings by a massuse. She learned all the songs and dances, plus her dramatic role, only to be told shortly before filming started that she was better suited for the secondary part. It was tough to take, but the way she took it will be remembered. Seasons change rapidly on the big set where most of the action takes place. One day it was autumn, a little later the hills were white. Now that it's Easter, the grass is green, trees are abloom, and the background artists have done their spring ploughing. Next week, swarms of workmen will have tied green leaves and fruit to the branches and caused the distnat fields to bear their crops. —.

Cookie Replaces the Doughnut Soldiers Like Them Better Says Salvation Army By MARGUERITE YOUNG NEA Service Staff Writer ^ E ^L YORK — It's doughnuts to doughboys no longer-it's the good old fashioned American cookie now. And nobody's more pleased about that than the woman who made an international name with the doughnuts in 1917 Indeed Brigadier Helen Purviance of the Salvation Army is pushing the cook ies herself, this time. As assistant m ^command of the Salvation Armys field and candidates' department for 11 eastern states headquar- r TTo^ re '^ she feeds v °lunteers into the USO. One thing she gets from them before they go is assurance that they fully appreciate the cookie. Doughnuts Started As Culinary "Juickics" "Over there 24 years ago," explains the firm-featured blonde Brigadier, "the doughnut was an emergency article. We put it together with whatever ingredients and kitchen equipment were at hand-it was a quickie, as they say about a movie. But here, with our fine kitchens and good ingredients, of course we have cookies. "A cookie takes a boy's thoughts back to home and family like nothing else. And that's one thing we're striving for. So I sav GIVF THT?M COOKIES. And see ilfal they're™ made by mothers, sisters and sweethearts whenever possible." As Ensign Helen Purviance, she whipped up the first batch of doughnuts for A. E. F. members at Montier- Sur-Saulx, Prance, in August 1917 She had gone with the first contingent of Army workers, and was assigned to the first ammunition train of the First Division. She had entered* faalvation Army training .eight years earlier in her home town, Huntington, Ind. In November, 1918, she came back to talk for the War Drive and help organize the reception of homecoming troops at Hoboken, New Jersey. In touch with Salvationists who operate 42 USO clubs in 26 states as part of the national inter-faith wartime welfare plan, Brigadier Purviance has first-hand information about what service recruits ask for. ft's cookies, she says, North, South, East," So she instituted the cookie jar:in service men's centers. Volunteer woman's committees in. the camp areas keep them filled. Members operate on a schedule, supplying so-many dozens cookies on specified days. .' Cookies For Soldiers Vary Geographically The cookies vary from place 'to place. In New England it's the Boston cookie or the Cape Cod oatmeal cookie. Maryland and Virginia hold out for peanut cookies. Further south and in the west there are molasses cookies. "Maybe," the Brigadier surmises, still looking ahead, "this war will give us a new symbol of American food—a new cookie of such satisfying taste and quality that word of it will pass around among the boys and it will attain lasting culinary fame. One thing I know. It will be more tempting than the doueh- nut" . NOTICE • • • • W. B.
