*?.*•>, - - BLYTIIBVILLE, (ARK.) COU1UEK NEWS TUESDAY, MAY 5, 1942 EDSON IN WASHINGTON A >~ By PETER EDSON -**• CMiier News Washington Correspondent -; WASHINGTON, May 5. — Not much fuss has been made about it, but the Office of Co-Ordinatar of I&er-American Affairs, otherwise known as Nelson Rockefeller's outfit/ has soft-pedalled almost to the poipt of completely silencing the '.'cultural" phases of its activities, and that marks a milestone. When the Rockefeller activities chain of Latin American capitals to make busts of all the current presidents of the Latin republics, is supposed to have built up a tremendous amount of good will. RUDE AWAKENING But came Pearl Harbor, and the Rockefeller office woke up with a hangover of realism which caused one and all to swear off dreaming. An unofficial ban went out on the word "culture." Cultural projects already under which could not be Troops Guarding Hawaii Can Give Your Real Low-Down On Underground Housekeeping first got going, much wwmadc^ of, stoppedi short were allowed to con- the : "cultural" program. The name of'the-organization was originally the'" Office of Co-ordinating the Commercial and Cultural Relations Between'-the American Republics. Culture was then on a par with commerce, and even if it might prove impossible to wed North American culture with that of Central and South America, at least it was hoped that the two cultures might better be able to live together in peace and love. There followed the amazing good- will'mission which you read about, of artists, musicians, writers, ballet dancers, ;.. .congressmen, professors students -and yes, even movie actors; all armed with trunkfuls of bfoth'erly co-operation, anxious to teach,-eager- to .learn. .People who couldn't get government sanction for such missionary work, .went on their'own. Among whom were Douglas Fairbanks Jr., though to say that name around the Rockefeller headquarters now is to cause an acute attack of shudders to seize everyone within hearing for the Fairbanks -junket, and some of the others, went exceedingly sour. ," Surprisingly enough, some of the others went .much better than was predicted."The tpur of the American, ballet w-as. actually a wow. And-Jo Davidson, the sculptor who : was sent touring around the tinue until they died a natural, pace ful death. But all the frills were abolished and the outfit got down to a much more practical basis of doing things to win the war. The few successful projects remaining were then grouped into a Division of Science and Education, now headed by John M Clark, an ex-newspaperman who had done some work for the International Labor Office in South America and who had been John G. Winant's assistant when the ambassador was head of I. L. O. Under Clark, the emphasis now is on doing good but common-sense exchanges of CHICKASAW Main Near 21st St always lie and 22o Sit. starts 12:45; Sun. starts 1:45 ~ Night shows 6:4V Cvntinnous shows Sat. and Sun. deeds. There are leading people, but with an aim of contributing something constructive to the sum total of civilizations. Missions sent down south now aren't so much interested in spreading good will as they are in spreading health and sanitation. The people brought up from Latin America don't come just to gawk and be impressed and go home and rave, but to learn something useful—nursing, for example, or road building or rural education or scientific agriculture. All such enterprises pay good will dividends, unquestionably. WELLES WOWS 'EM In seeming contradiction to all this practical good neighborliness, Rockefeller office people admit today the hottest thing they have in South America is Orson Welles, the big man from Mars and the boy wonder of Hollywood.

BY BEIT IT MACDONAU) NEA Service Stuff Correspondent HONOLULU.—A wartime tip to girls in the natrimonial mart: Grab yourself a soldier whcr has served on the Hawaiian battlefront. He can cook, he can keep house and he works wonders with a can opener and tinned field rations. Give him a hatchet, a saw and he'll build you a house; give him a broom and he'll keep it neat as a pin! I can vouch for all this because while touring Oahu defenses, I saw him housekeeping in underground dugouts, in camouflaged mountain shacks, in cement pillboxes. Underground housekeeping is a fairly smooth business. At one ot our tour stops in what looked like a deserted copse of trees along the beach, a spry young officer suddenly emerged from a trapdoor in the ground and invited us in to inspect his living.

Keeping this hallway clean Is made easier by occasional high tides which flood the floor and pack the sand down solid. "HOT AND COLD RUNNING MICE " The tunnel ended at one point in the officer's bedroom, floored with wood. Bunks with chicken 'wire "springs" were tidily made up. A packing box built in on one side served as a pantry, complete with shiny tinned field rations—beef stew, hard coffee that had to be diluted with water before drinking, beans, hash and canned bread.

Robert Preston En route through a branch tunnel towards a pillbox, the officer nonchalantly explained that in addition to all the comforts of home his quarters also had hot and cold running mice. The pillbox was a clean and airy cement room with an ocean view seen through narrow .sliLs and over machine guus that commanded the bay approach. "RE-ROUTING" DID THE THICK Before leaving, the officer nx-, plained that those weren't yellow curtains hanging from the window, they were signal flags. Later, I visited an industrious group of reserves who were building themselves a camp. The lieuten- i ant in charge proudly waved us into his dugout. "I built it myself with a hatchet, a crooked .saw and some rusty nails. Most of the wood came out, of ammunition boxes," he .said. Inside, he'd rigged up a kitchen stove that folded into the \v:Ul an ice chest equally we-11 hidden, a worktable thru could be hooked against the door, a signal bell run from his own personal battery charger, and a li^ht trap for complete blackout at ni^ht. The lieutenant explained, with soldierly pride, that most of his supplies were limited ana he forced to "re-route" a lot of mate- mi from the unsuspecting engineers. He had "re-routed." to date, rolls of chi-ken wire for shower floor, wires that were used to tie the rafters together and a traveling library from the USO.
