By RUTH MILLETT : Educational leaders, civic leaders, and just plain parents of White Plains, I N. Y., are concerned over the problem of whether fraternities and sororities have a place in public high schools. Their attention was focused on the problem by a local tragedy. An 18-year -old girl who found out that her own sorority meant to "blackball" her sister felt so humiliated over it that she killed herself. In your own community there has probably never been and never will be any such tragic incident connected with high school sorority and fraternity affairs. But that is no reason—if you are a parent—you shouldn't feel that it is your responsibility to find 'out something about the sororities and fraternities in your public schools and decide whether they have any business in schools that are supported by taxpayers. Some Purcnls Arc Complacent The trouble, of course, is that if your Johnny or your Mary belongs to a Greek letter organization you are probably pretty complacent about the tituation. Your child belongs—so you aren't much acquainted with how the child who wasn't voted into a fraternity feels . , Ot course, you may complain to j your friends that high school sorority and fraternity dances last until ridiculously late hours, that it is disgraceful what it costs to keep a child in high school these days, what with fraternity dues, special assessments for parties, national conventions, etc. But since your child is THEATERS SAENGER TVod.-Thurs.

NON-SLIP BOTTLE -I0 e Here's a Day With President Roosevelt Relaxes With Stamp Collection at Night By TOM WOLF £ E , A ,£ < ; rvicc S(nff Correspondent WASHINGTON - Since President Roosevelt first took office 10 years ago, his job has been the toughest of any individual in the United States. Actual war has brought only one mitJor change. It has made that toughest job a whole lot tougher Actually the routines of Iho Presidential day have changed little since December 7. But their whole tempo has been quickened and intensified. If there is such a thing as a "typical" wartime day for President Roosevelt its chronology would read something like this: The President awakens at about eight. As has been his long custom he cats breakfast in bed; but even before it, he looks at some morning mail and then turns to the newspapers. Some of his predecessors preferred to have their daily papers clipped and only the most pertinent sections brought thorn. Mr. Roosevelt, a very rapid reader, likes to read them in their entirely. Breakfast, and very often the day's first visitors, arrive about 9. The Pros- Wont's tray is bare of trimmings. Breakfast is usually light, for Dr Ross T. Mclntyrc, Ihe Presidents personal physician, wants him to keep his weight around 187 pounds. After breakfast, Mr. Roosevelt holds a bed-side conference with his three secretaries, with whom he runs over the day's appointments. At about 10:30 he goes to his office over in the executive wing. The big oval office is marked with few frills of Presidential rank—the President's seal is carved in the center of the high white ceiling; coats of arms adorn the window valances; the blue Presidential flag stands behind his desk, along with the Stars and Stripes. The green office walls arc crowded with prints thai speak of Sailor Roosevelt's love of the sea. Mr. Roosevelt works at a large desk clutlered with its now-famous maze of trinkets—porcelain Scolties, Democratic donkeys, a pig bank, etc. A miniature American flag flies from a small desk flagstaff. Directly across the room, facing the President, is a large colored map of the world, which now hides the executive office fireplace. The President works at his desk all day, usually having his lunch rolled in on a hot-wagon. Before the war's start, he received visitors only during the morning. He is seldom able to stick to that scheme now, often has his schedule changed as late at 4 p. m. While there are a number of people, including the entire cabinet, who can usually see the President on a moment's notice, the only man in Washington who is always sure to get an immediate interview is Secretary of Stale Hull. During Ihe days of peace, Mr. Roosevelt usually went back to Ihe White House around 5:30 in the evening. Now it's usually nearer 6:30 or 7 before he gets "home." Whenever he gels a chance, he dons his dark blue bathing suit with its maroon monogram and goes for a swim before dinner. Even here he does not gel completely away from duties of state. He often invites for a swim men with i whom he wants to talk. the Chart of Taxes ICeni 90 90 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 . ».

Oliphant, age 65, died suddenly of a heart attack Saturday afternoon in Houston, Texas.

Hope, Arkansas . — big meal of thl day—either in the family dining room (the only family room on the ground floor) or, if he's alone, in his study. After dinner he usually continues in his study. (The whole White House takes complete blackout precautions every night.) Almost any time during the evening, Mr. Roose- vcll may lurn to his favorite hobby, stamps, for relaxation. He has seldom found time to attend the White House movies since war's start, but somehow he still gets a few minutes almost daily for reading current books. The President goes to bed usually in—there is probably just a lillle bit of boasting behind your complaining. ' No Room for "Organized Snobbery" That is why the sororities and fraternities have been allowed to exist in public high schools all these years. The only parents who kicked about them were the parents of children who weren't asked to belong—so their attacks on high school secret societies could always be written off as "sour grapes." But now that we have come to see how important it is thai our young people grow up with an understanding of, and love for, democracy, maybe all parents of high-school-aged kids, whelhe rlhcir sons and daughters wear fraternity pins or happen to be on the outside looking in, ought to make a study of the situation. If they do it may be they will decide thai there is no place in America's public schools for organized snobbery —especially in 1942. Automatic Water Heaters Hgrry W.

The supply o f rifles, I am told, has long since passed the requirements for equipping every man m our rapidly expanding aniiy. It was, therefore, with some consternation that a good many other Wash- mgtonians and I observed two smartly turned-out young privates marching along in front of the White House on Pennsylvania avenue the oilier afternoon with brooms, at shoulder arms. For a moment, it appeared that the Army was picketing its commander in chief. But near East Executive avenue the two privates halted, grounded thcii brooms with perefect precision, and then broke their two-man rank. It was simply a detail, whose order it was to sweep in and around the sentry boxes that jut out from the iron fence that surrounds the White House. Employes of the Department of Interior who, a few months ago, were saying unkind things about Employer Harold L. Ickes are now practically unanimous in their vote of thanks. During the threatened gasoline short age in the eastern states, Ickes conducted a departmental campaign to force his employes to share their cars in going to and from work In spite of complaints, the idea caught on. By lato September, it was estimated that each Interior employe car was carrying an average of 1.6 passenger through the winter, car owners wlic drove to work daily, mapped ou pick-up routes and made arrangements with other drivers to exchangi rides. Now, with tire and auto priorities beginning to pinch and a gasoline shortage threatened again, the In tenor department workers are miles ahead on their share-the-car program and the average passenger figure ha almost doubled. The cub reporter who learned his news values in peace time would have a bit of heavy going in Washington these days. A four-alarm midtown fire that gutted a three-story furnituic building and resulted in seven fne- men being overcome and 25 others slightly injured turned up in one of the local papers on page 13, and was given no more prominent display in the opposition sheet. Latest scheme of the racketeers who prey on the war effort is that of men who go about representing themselves as federal "tire inspectors" and either lay the groundwork for "government requisition" of tires on private automobiles or "case the tires" for future tli) every. Leon Henderson's OPA says that the only government the inspectors at work now are those checking dealers' stocks and there will be ample information given in advance before any others take the field. around 11 p. m.
