THURSDAY, NOVEMBER Othman Visits Roosevelt Hotel Dewey Headquarters Claim Interest Of . , United Press Man «LYTBBVIU.K (AUK.) .COUItlKIt NKWS YORK, 'NOV. 9 .(UP) — FrcilUie Othman of the Unllert rress went down to the bewey .ictidquarters in the Roosevelt Hotel yesterday. .;•. '. i ,'. .. The svyecper-outers were .'moving 'n to go to work oil a shambles of nirty dishes, cigarette bulls, busted elephants, empty whisky .bottles, rented typewriters and ' cnimpletl orchids, •••-.. % t And, he says, if yqu. want (o b.u/ a couple of huiulred gross of 'en< yelop^s with pcwey's campaign s lo-' Ban printed on them, I know the men lo see. Qr maybe you need a Vflse or two pf pcwey lapel biiltons or a yfllow brpom wHh the legend: Clean {jouse With'Dewey. I've got (he ijisn's name. < . . "Watln mess," grumbled a janitor as l\e shoved his'o\vn.'iion-uo-' iitical brconi down the purple ear- pels of the 10th floqr of the Roosevelt Hotel. He thresv hfgli the window in every room to get rid of an odor compounded of stale clgnr smoke, cjusts of chicken sandwiches, dregs of high-balls —! undoubtedly consumed for medicinal purposes' only—and pots of coffee long since cold. "What is our country coming to now?" wondered a sod-looking lady who turned out lo be Mj's. w. j. Donald, wife of lh e office nif' 1 .' ; >- fjer, walling for her husband to finish .his business with the furniture movers. . ' 'ponald came in a little later and tolil QUmra'u he hoped he'd treat the Republicans gently. He said they'd done (he best they could. He said he wasn't worried about those eiH .vclopes. He said envelopes are .scarcer than cigarettes, even', and are good for mailing letters, no in.nUer \yhose name is printed on •them. He said he did not know exactly why Dewey chose tlie n'oosevelt Ho_ tel for his headtjuarlcrs. Ho said he" supposed becnuse it was a first class hotel. "But the name of the place?" Olhman insisted. The name is all right, Donald said. The Roosevelt Hotel is an unfortunate abbreviation. It is the Theodore Roosevelt Hotel In the black marble fireplace of the suite reserved for Dcwey Othman found two withered orchids which apparently ha<i been dropped and stepped on. The plaster elephant, «>Hii its trim): broken off was in the office of press secretary William M. Tyler. The reporter then located n pile of phonograph records of Dctt'ey's speeches but no phonograph: a handsome walnut desk that somebody had ruined with a \ V et water glass; a ceihng-liigh stack of campaign-literature which should help the waste paper drive, and a red-eyed red" head.
