MONDAY, JUNE 1, 1942 JM.YTIIEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS EDSON IN WASHINGTON BY PETER EDSON Courier News Washington Correspondent If ever there was a guy born to trouble, it is the Hon. Rexford Guy Tug well—yer, the one who was an original brain mister, the one who wa.s going to remake the world—or wa.s it just America? Anyway. Tugwell has branched out since he was exiled from the New Deal into the vice presidency of n molasses company, and is now governor of Puerto Rico, which job he got through the yraccs of his old pal Harold Ickes. boss of Puerto Rico by virtue of being Secretary of the Interior, administering U. S. territorial government. Current^/, however,, Governor Tugwell has been sitting it out in a Washington hotel, trying to quiet a cat fight within his official staff. It really isn't Tug well's fault. The trouble began in a row over civilian defense in Puerto Rico. CCD had its fan dancers, apparently, even there. At first it was just a personal matter betwen Mrs. Tugwell and the wife of the governor's naval aide, a typical comic opera fued. But the thing grew to such a point that newspapers in San Juan, the capital, began to print dispatches from Washington that the aide really h;tci been sent to understudy Tugwell, who was reported on the way out. THEN THE DIRT The aide was Licut.-Comm. Tom C. Hennings of St. Louis, Mo., who had been elected to Congress three time.s and had resigned to take a position as district attorney. About a year ago. however, he was called into active service and assigned to the staff of Governor Tugwell as it was important that the Navy be well represented in as strategic a position as this island possession unquestionably is. The dirt in Washington is that when this story about Commander Hennings' rumored appointment to the governship appeared, it was too much. A request was made to the Navy that Commander Hennings be transferred to some nice, quiet .spot, say like Pearl Harbor. in turn reply to questions on his subjtect is, "No comment!" At the Department of the Interior he reply is, "No comment!" * * * WASHINGTON SIIOKTCAKK Foreign embassy attaches Washington were requested to in the X gasoline cards . . .

Mrs. Hennings. before her marriage, had been Josephine Halpin. a. radio personality in St. Louis who knew what she wanted and how to go about getting it. When Mrs. Hennings learned her husband was to be given the bum's rush to another station, she started writing letters. At least three congressmnen, two newspapermen, one lobbyist and the Puerto. ; /.Rican ---resident..- .commissioner in Washington, the Hon. Bolivcr Pagcn. got letters on the subject.

When- Phis for the past two months re- ever anything unfavorable to Tug- turned to her home last week, well has appeared in Puerto Rican Mrs. Iglehart's newspapers. Pagan has seen to it that the document, was reprinted in the Congressional Record. And several congressmen have vied with each other and with Pagan in having reprinted any unfavorable comments on the subject of Tugwell. Consequently, when the Hennings case broke in Puerto Rican newspaper El Mundo. bang, it went into the Congressional Record and the cat was thereby let out of the bacr. All this storm broke when Governor. Tugwell was in Jamaica, attending an important. Carribbean, conference. Leaving the confer-I aunt - cncc cold, and also leaving his island legislature to stew in its own sweat, the governor hopped a plane for Washington. Result: The Hennings have been sent to the west coast. There will be no belated honeymoon in Puerto Rico.
