WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS EDSON IN WASHINGTON «y PETER EDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent £ WASHINGTON, April 29.—There has always been considerable mystery about the mythical "White House Spokesman." He's the fellow, you know, who knows everything. Without having body or soul or a name decent, enough to baptize a man. with, hs nevertheless is able to hand out straight stuff that the No. l man living in the White House can't or doesn't care to be quoted on. But the White House Spokesman, it now develops, has pups, or maybe they should be called his uncles and cousins, and there is a whole family of people living at 1GOO Pennsylvania Avenue whose names don't' show in the telephone book or the Census Bureau records, because they haven't'any names. This excludes Mr. Harry Hopkins, of course, because though he has a name, it's not in the telephone book and he isn't often a spokesman. The latest addition to the official family of the White House Spokesman—remember the one .Calvin Coolidge had?—is this "Sweet Young Thing Who Came to Dinner." She's the dumb cluck guest who asks just how General MacArthur got out of the Philippines and where did those planes come from that bombed Tokyo. She is a kind of an invert Charlotte McCarthy or Graceless Allen who sits the President's right, if not on his knee. Instead of giving dumb answers to his smart questions, she asks dumb questions that he can give smart, like telling that MacArthur escaped in a. rowboat and the planes were based on Shangri-La. In the White sponsored by the Office of Pacts and Figures for home consumption and beamed by short wave to the western hemisphere for Co-ordi- nator of Inter-American Affairs Nelson Rockefeller, and to the rest of the world for Co-ordinator William J. Donovan's propaganda Office of Information. WOULD JITTER THE JAPS Just think of the possibilities of throwing confusion into the Japanese general staff by so doing. Sup- poss they pick up this line about the secret base on Shangri-La. You can just see bespectacled, toothy, humorless Jap scholars searching every atlas in the imperial library to locals Shangri- La. This would be psychological warfare befitting a supreme command. But the Sweet Young Tiling Who Came to Dinner isn't the. only member of. the Whits House Spokesman's Office. There's That Business Man. Remember him? That Business Man hasn't been heard .from lately, but he's the fellow who used to call at the White House during depression days and tell the President, who would then tell his press conference, that the ' country could easily stand a national debt of $75 billion. Oh boy! But isn't that funny today! It lias taken about eight years and a war * and $120 billion debt for that one to sink in and be fully appreciated. REMEMBER THE PROF? Then there is The Professor of Economics. He wasn't exaclly in the original Brain Trust, but he's there now. That is, he writes letters there'.now.

BY MARGUERITE YOUNG NEA Scrvfae SUN Writer NEW YORK—Dark, citified cotton clothes are the newest expression of a wartime-fashion trend which may last for the duration—and then some. Right now, with scarcely a hot day passed, Fifth Avenue store buyers are hooping to keep up with the demand for black cotton shantung uncl black and white striped pique/ suits, dark red and navy-and-wlute corded cotton suits, plaid and checked gingham jacket dresses, -and black skirt with white jacket outfits made ol cotton gabardine and poplin. Women are, of course, buying cotton instead of wool and silk. But that's not all. They're going back for more cotton when they discover how cool, rugged and var- iou i v is this fiber which has survived many a war since Cleopatra wore it and liked it. And cotton fabrics and cotton garments are styled this year us never before. For cotton growers, cloth-makers and clothes-manufacturers are out to develop the home-grown planb as the permanent, basic American style material. USED FOR CRADLE CLOTHES AND WEDDING GOWNS It's available now in dozens ancl dozens of things, from cradle clothes to bridal gowns, that' rarely were made of cotton before. Pine specialty houses are showing cotton organdy pastel dresses, all folunced, and in fine rainbow-delicate color, for brides ancl their attendants.' Designer Charles Armour has pale yellow and periwinkle wed-_ ding suits of crinkled cotton crepe, Designer .Mary 1,2wis offers "fresh-faced" cotton clothes for all day—calico- ancl cleinim for play, poplin and shantung for tailored hours, and a gingham gown for evening. Hat designer Lily Dache makes practically all of her summer collection out of cotton pique, ribbons, and string. Lingerie in its original meaning —fine cotton lingerie and batiste gowns, slips, chemises—are staging a spectacular wartime comeback. Teen-age cotton fashions seem almost limitless—and here, against stance, writes in to the White House saying that federal non-war expenses should be cut. Economy is a silly thing to .write a letter about, but it gives the boss his cue. He comes back with a "Where?" that simply leaves everyone - dumbfounded. The saving grace of the American people is that they have a sense of humor. It's worth lighting for, and "freedom to laugh" should be added to the other four freedoms. Contributing to that enjoyment, this department would like to suggest that as a curtain raiser for the next fireside chat there be a Round Table of the Air discussion of the war at which the characters would be The White House Spokesman, the Young Lady Who Came to Dinner, That Business Man and The Professor of Economics. It might be a little? difficult to tell the voices apart, or distinguish them from The Voice, but Scrap rubber is . the next mosfc important itsm on which salvage collection campaigns must be conducted...The soy bean is at last coming into .its long-anticipated own with 3000 ; tons' a c 'day being- processed for oils'. ..Sweden has oversubscribed three .defense loans ./.More than 30,000 World War pilots are . now . enrolled in^ the Civil Air Patrol...Shades on passenger au-plane windows are to be drawn .during landings and takeoffs...

For her furlough fling are budget- worthy basque-dresses of a Virginia made corded charnbray that's gay and young as, the candy cane from which the fabric takes Us stripes. Another modest cotton which is making dress history is electrically embroidered 1 lawn. Pour million yards of it have been sold this season, ancl that may be the last "of it for a while because the mill is uncertain of its future supply of gray goods. It's plentiful now, and will be through the summer, in clotted; Swiss effect, daisy-patterned prints, -stripes, and florals made into dresses of simplicity— dress marked dainty for every age.
