Washington Looks at M in Film "Mr, Smith Goes to Washington" Is a Political Melodrama 81 PKESTOxV GROVEB WASHINGTON — Washington does riot often nose out New York or Hollywt»d in getting a world premier view of a new motion picture but since it had first go at "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" it has had some uneasy hours. Early off-hand views were that it would be a. "money-picture" for several reason, first because it is .as a. war thriller, and second because Frank Capra directed it. Further it is a stirring piece, with more than an average quota of good acting and laugh lines. Photographically it picks out the capital's principal monumental attractions, such as the capito!, the Washington monument takes them to the scene-hungry public in a dress more gorgeous than any we've seen. Movie Newspapermen But for all the precautions taken to have it truly reflect the way of life in Washington, it will help to perpetuate a pair of faulty ideas about what goes on here. Hollywood seems to have a stylzed view of how newspapermen look and act, and wll go to the grave holding to that view, regardless. The idea evidently persists that a news man can snatch a story out of thin air about as readily as he can reach in his vest pocket and pull out a quart bottle of bourbon with fizz water and glasses. However, 'nobody should become perturbed about that What might be viewed with a more critical eye is the plot in the picture in which a whole state's newspapers, the radio and 95 members of the Senate com- OUR BOARDING HOUSE • i •*-••••-- -•— ....-..-.. - ^ . .__...

The trouble is that mediation, ns diplomats use the word, means n good deal more than simply transmitting bnck and forth messages from the belligerent parties. It involves sitting clown with the belligerents at a conference tiible, taking part in the argument, working actively to bring about a settlement —and, in the end, it involves n certain moral responsibility both for seeing that any settlement which is reached is afterward lived tip to.

Aside from the ,,,, 1I . 1 . 6 nations, there arc a score of other countries concerned in any European settlement. There would be many pitfalls for any American president who sought to take part in any such complicated conference as that. "On the other hand, the conference might not include any but the nations actually at war-Germany, England and France. In that case the fortunes of the other nations would to a large extent be settled by the negotiations between these three powers. Once a- ffiiin. il is easy (o see (lie troubles which mif>ht befall an American president who tried to help work out n settlement!" Like ninny others. Senator Downey feels that old-line "power politics" would be apt to be dominant in a European pence conference. Consequently, he- suggests that if this country wants to keep out of European ontanglc'ments it ought not lightly to consider taking part in a con- ierencc of that kind, As a matter of fact, the United Stat- the has done very little country unless the ground work had all been done in advance. A government prepared to mediate would sound out the warring parties first and ns- certnin that ench side wanted to cornc to some agreement, It probably would get n pretty straight Idea of the nmount of give- nnd-takc that was going to be needed. Not until a good dcnl of subsurface negotiating had gone on would an nctunl offer of mediation be made.

'Very Few Senators' In real fact the Senate is fanatically jealous of its reputation. It was f-nly a few years ago that the Senate pilloried one of its employes who wrote ;i magazine article in which he said, in a thoughtless moment, that "very few Senators take graft," Washington probably won't say yes or no to whatever the credulous wish to believe but it would bu a fine state of affairs it the funny impression got around that the Senate would walk out in a body to avoid hearing a hint of foul dealing.
