Soon after the outbreak of war in f'urope the congressional galleries wore closed to the public, except to persons having cards of admission ts- Micd by members. The Capitol was i closed Sundays, the White House • grounds were .shut lo tourists and extra police were .stationed all around. ' To a lot nf folks it .seemed as if tlv government were trying to impios upon Washington the nearness of the j European war so that opponents of embargo repeal could not talk .so freely nf it.s brim! somebody else's | war. and not om.s. The thing backfired to a degree. Attorney General Frank Murphy had* to deny half a rlo/.en times that ho had any part in the order closmi; Ihe Capitol. The President, too. was asked why the Capitol j;all<>rii-s weio closed. That appealed lo be an indirect way ol asking him why all the special precautions about the While House.

PRESCOTT ARKANSAS By AnKLAfDK KEKK A I' Cushion Killtnr The corset's- HMO comeback has left a big mark on winter lingerie. All the new underpinning for winter frocks has been designed to smooth and enhance the new silhouette's .small waist. Since (.-lips dill top that list, they have had first consideration. Some have smoothly fitting brassiere fops lo give the high rounded bustline. and eliiKticizcd satin center .sections which cover the top of the new corset and mould the midriff as smoothly as though it had been ironed. Other f\\\v Tire cut svith smooth fitting inset center sections. None of them is boned, but they all are designed to confirm fashion's foremost winter decree: "Small waistline." More lingerie news apfienri; in Sheer culottee pecticoats, which elimnatc panties from the wardrobe and one layer of fabric from (he waistline. They arc nearly as Jong as a slip, made of very sheer cerpe and often as lace- trimmed as grandmother's petticoats They're generally worn with a very sheer, lace-accented shirt, like the old-fashioned pre-war variety, which is tucked inside the culottee petticoat.

Gibson Drug Co. objected to wearing next their flesh. Most women, however, now prefer to paths of Broadway, including the Main Stem proper, seem to work a peculiar ildiemy on certain people whoso liv- ng is made within the glow of the WriRlcy sign. On the .surface happy and carefree, these folk are really subject to more •ic-hcs. pains, twinges and assorted bacteria than any other, group on earth. Oi- so they would have you believe. ifor, if the truth were known, the •.'inlortainmont world is the hypochon- Iriac's Paradise, the neutrotic's Nirvana—the Backyard of the Breakdown. Not only can a sufferer of some ob- cnrc and unlocatable ailment find a listener—he can find a whole audience in Lindy's any night and the chances '.re he will discover a half dozen boys md girls who will match him sy'mp- tom for symptom. Heart Trouble Not every hypochondriac can reach Liicb lyric heights of his mania as, for instance. Larry Hart, the songsmith. Hart, a nervous individual with a hit •:how running and three Rodgers and Hart SOURS in the Hit Parade, goes all to pieces during a rehearsal. Sometimes it is difficult to tell if he is in live throes of composition or of some terrible affliction. There was the time, six months after he recovered rfovn an attack of pneumonia, that he suddenly was sie/.ed with the fear of a relapse. Nothing would do but that he carry a thermometer around with him and pop it into his mouth at odd times of the day and night—at the Stork Club, at ! Ralph's 1 in the silent darkness of a theater. Friends would make persistent attempts to destroy the little glass tube and often succeeded—but he would always buy another. In a moment i of forgetfulness be used one as a ' swi/zle .slick in a highball and al- j most swallowed an ounce of mercury. That cured him. Whitman's Weight of Life i A fear that haunts many of the ! healthy but intense workers is the gaining or losing of weight. Paul Whiteman, on his doctor's orders, ! shelved many, many pounds. The sub- i conscious fear that he will wake up j one morning with them all hack again i makes him weigh himself a dozen times .' a day. Life, for Whitman, i.s a succession of scales— and not musical : ones either. , On the other extreme, Mervyn LeRoy i.s haunted by the dread of a nervous breakdown. He, too, weighs himself ad infinitum and should there be a loss of eight bounces LeRoy puts ! himself on a cod liver oil diet for a ' week. Gamblers to tlic End Two of the most companionable ail- 1 ing wretches are Sidney Skolsky and Lew Brown, the producer. The story ; i.s now ancient of how Skolsky, having j induced two other ailing buddies lo i go with him and have their blood pres- •uros taken, halted before the doctor's door and declared: "Remember—low man pays." Even belter is the tale %f how he and Brown sat in Dave's Blue Room from throe in the morning till six, cojiir plaining bitterly to each other about the state of their health. After listening to one of Solsky's most harrowing symptoms, he leaned forward and patted him on the shoulder. "I know just the thing for you," ho declared. "Why don't you try So-and- £o'x pills?" Skolsky reached down into his pocket and fished up a little curd- board box. "You mean these'.'" he aswcd, "I tried them already. No "Well," countered Brown, "how about Dr. Such-and-Such's remedy'.'" Skolsky fished in his back pocket and piaced that on the table. "No good cither," he declared, "but tell me—1 hear that there's a certain blue pow- Eeforc he finished Brown had the little blue powder in front of him. "Maw," said Brown, "—not worth a hoot. I tried "em." Of the actors. Willie Howard is the most noticeable neurotic, since his poi-uli.-irit.N, in addition to the pills and .powders, is sticking his tongue out in front of every available miiirpr. And Chic Johnson's mad buffoonery, which 'xvms so healthy and effortless on Mage, invariably is preceded by a do.sc of whatever he happens to favor at the 'moment. Of course, the people of the theatre and radio world who really%do have things wrong with them never complain. Alec Templeton, for instance. v et the shirl-culottce combination over their corsets. The black corset, which caused such storm of controversy, has had a lurthci effect on winter lingerie styles designers say. in influencing the making of sheer black lingerie to wear with it. The new nighldrorKos, which mnny are already buying has been used in new ways this year. gifts, emphasize the , c'omelimes a wide inset, band of it serves to effect that famous little waist; again it is inset in bodices or used in brief sleeves to cap shoulders. Very sheer weaves, crepes and satins are used for all this lingerie »'roth. Pale pinks and blues are more talked about than the tearose, which held top place on the lingerie color smart women as Christmas hand-spun waist, too,; Some of them arc designed with in'set midriff sections lo mould the figure and full skirts breaking in a graceful sweep he- low them.

Such a scratch conceivably might start a fracture. So we shot-blast our springs — to heal such tiny scratches, "peening" the surface jn miniature like hammered silver. A.11 through this massive, powerful, beautiful car you'll find special precaution like that. For example, we used to balance by weight all sets of parts in our tornadic Dynaflash straight-eight engine, to cancel out even a hint of "rough." We do that still, but now we do more. On special machines we electrically balance this great engine to micropoised perfection after assembly, paring metal if need be to Seat angles, pedal positions, shock absorber travel-arc, brake areas, control tensions — every detail comes under special study. \\ lien the experimental models had done their stuff on the General Motors proving ground, we turned 'em over to sharpshooters to punish, over thousands of miles of bad roads and good.
