By IIEM:N \VOKI>I;.\ (Written for NBA Service) NEW YORK — Since- Mr. and Mrs. Walter R. Hcrrick kicked up all the fuss over their daughter Eileen's attempts to marry Gcoigo Luwther .'id the influence of mglil clubs on New York's Smart Young Set has suddenly become a highly controversial topic. Mrs. Herrick blames the night clubs i for her daughter's defiant attitude. : Mr. Herrick blames human nature. Others blame a combination of both. Eileen has curly brown hair and Irish blue eyes. She was the prettiest deb of 193S. but she never had any j real coming out party. (Financial \vn.\ sons.) All the girls Eileen knew did I have coming out parties. Her only ! | debut was a succession of casual gat- | i herings which she happened to be in- j I eluded in at the Stork Club. In fact, because she was young and sparkling and invited to join so many of these threesomes and four- tomes, she became known locally as. The Stork Club Deb. Five evenings out of six you would find her sitting on a cozy side seat in Sherman Billingsley's rose and onyz hot spot on East 53rd Street, with either Russell Burke, Eddy Sheedy, Don (Herndon) Robinson or anyone of a COPR, 1939 BY SEA SERVICE.

Both enjoyed certain favors for their patronage. He got S25 a week and his meals at Mon Paris. In 1938, .she won a movie screen contest at the Stork Club and a trip to Hollywood, but her father wouldn't let her go, according to the club. However, they still let her dine and sup at Mr. Billingsley's and her pretty young face still continued to smile back at you from photographs taken at the bar 01 on the dance floor. Like Braula Fraxier, she was plio. togenie. and therefore an asset to any night club. Instead of an evening's pclasure setting Eileen and Lowther back $10 or $15, they got it for nothing. She and George only happened to meet by accident at a vocktnil party Be caii.se lie was assistant press agent for Mon Paris, a rival of the Stork j Club, he seldom got out for dinner. | He was also customer's man for this I other boite. It was his job to bring ! the people in as well as publici/.c them. . : Ac-cording lo his friends, George Lowther lid was equipped for a more j intellectual life. Tall and handsome. j with curly brown hair and big brown eyes, be graduated from Yale in '31 ; and was about to go in business when j tie happened to drop, into a night club j one evening. A photographer took his | picture. It appeared in the papers ; next day under the caption Glamor Boy of Society. Thc title made an impression. He changed careers. After that he became known as a young- man-about-town. Although he is .supposed to help his f«iUiei- in the inxurancc business, bis work is chiefly in night clubs. Last summer he handled the publicity and brought in customers at the Merry- Go-Round adjoining the Atlantic Beach Club at Long Beach. It was here that he and Eileen began to be seen so frequently in one another's j company. Her strapless, sandy.pink and white satin striped bathing suit, and his gay South Sen Island loin cloth, singled the pair out on the beach. Mrs. Herrick objected. Kileen was taken to the Cedars, the family summer home at Wainscott. L. 1. But she didn't stay. In a few weeks she was back in New York, this time driving a miniature car at the World's Fair in return for the publicity she attracted to it. Her evenings were spent hight-elubbing with George Lowthcr. Holds Night Life "Undermines" Daughter Mrs. Herrick thinks this continuous going Out at night undermined j her daughter's strength of character, j "Eileen doesn't know her own mind,' she told me. "Onc minute she's defying I me. tlu? next she's crying in my arms, i • That's why we put her in New York ! | Hospital, to give her a chance lo get hold of herself," On the other hand, Helen Stedman, j j Eileen's best girl friend, says night i ; clubs haven't done her any harm. I i "But if her parents thought Eileen < ! was leading the wrong sort of life ; 1 why didn't they do something to; : change it for her?" she asked when I she -came to thc Federal Court the ! j other day, ready lo testify at the i | hearing which was thc result of the i writ served by Lowther on Mr. Herrick to produce Eileen. "Keeping Eileen a prisoner isn't going to make her forget either George or thc night 1 clubs." As she was led into court, Kilcen drooped gracefully between a trained nurse and a private detective, but outside, she posed with her mother and father, for pictures. For the first time in hi.s career. George was ducking reporters. "I'm talking for him," said Law| yer Eli Johnson. "Though lie hasn't I much now, bis prospects are bright." I i He lowered hi.s voice lo a confidential • whisper: "He has two rich old aunts i in Greenwich!" j All Is Not Yet Going Smoothly j While Supreme Court Justice Isidor I Wa.sservogcl's dismissal of the habeas ! corpus writ served to smooth some j matters, it left others hanging fire, j At the Stork Club they say George spent half of one day in one of their booths trying to reach Eileen by phone | at.
