When the first American general staff was appointed from among the Army's bright young men and fair-haired boys, some of the old Indian fighters and plains soldiers grumbled and one of them said, "It's a damned brain trust." Parenthetically, this was the same old Commissary General Wes ton, who once wise-cracked on Gen. Greely's fitness to be entrusted with the command of many men Greely had won his rank in the Signal Corps where the duties are largely technical. ' He achieved glory in his historic Arctic expedi tion with a small squad not all of whom came back. Weston's comment was: "He never commanded more than 10 sol diers and he ate three of them.1 Weston's crack about the brain trust lived. One day at Krum El bow, in the summer of 1932, some bright news hawk saw a group of young "intellectuals" hanging about Hyde Park and recalled Weston's old wise cracks "Moley and the Brain Trust." It stuck. The trouble with the New Deal Brain Trust was that it didn't stick to Brain Trusting on the staff model. Brain Trusters tried to execute as well as plan. In one of the greatest mass efforts the world has ever seen, there never was pure co-ordinating staff which planned and watched the execution of plans and never itself acted. Because the New Deal was big beyond the power of any single mind to co-ordinate, it simply ran all over the map. It became both unwieldly and contradictory, and if it isn't drawn together and sys- tPmatized soon, it is going to pop like a bubbl" from sheer expansion ,lCopnght. 1935.) small dance Oct. 5 at "Langwater," their estate at North Easton, Mass.

FLORENCE, Italy, July 12. Young love and old laws are mak ing Don Juan, sea-going student Prince, impatient for the coming of fall when he is to be married in one of the most royal of royal Spanish weddings. Royalist circles disclose that the wedding of the Prince, third son of ex-King Alfonso and heir to the vacant throne of the Bourbons, to his cousin, Princess Maria Mer cedes, will take place in October, and that the place probably will be Rome. lne wedding will unite once again the two branches of the Bourbons, the royalists of both France and Spain are striving to make the occasion a glittering show. Prince Studying Law. Don Juan now is a student of law at the university here after four years in the British Navy. Al- tnougn good in nis stuaies, ins friends say he spends as much time in pans with his fiancee a3 his father will permit. Their engagement, which for some time was secret, is the result of a childhood romance begun in Spam. The two have known each other almost since their births in Madrid. He is 22. and she 23. . Princess Convent-Bred. Princess Maria Mercedes is re ported to be a quiet, retiring girl, only a short time out of the co i-vent in which she was educated. Don Juan, on the other hand, is dashing and debonair. He has the easy charm and grace of his father, together with the friendly self-assurance of a sailor. The Princess, daughter of Don Carlos de Bourbon of Paris, has almost as illustrious a lineage as her husband-to-be. She can claim King Louis XIV of France among her ancestors, and she is the niece of the Duchess de Guise, wife of the pretender to the throne of France. Previous Marriages. f The wedding of the Crown Prince of the Bourbons is expected to surpass in magnificence the marriages past winter of two of Alfonso's other children, in both of which occasions American blood figured. In January, the Infanta Beatriz, the exiled monarch's eldest daugh ter, became the wife of Prince Alexander Torlonia, son of the for mer Elsie Moore of New York and a former American schoolboy ath lete. Two months later, Don Jaime, second son of the former King, married Madamoiselle de Dam pierre, granddaughter of the for mer Josephine Curtis of Boston. These weddings likewise were celebrated in Rome where Alfonso is watching closely the political situation in Spain and biding his time in the hope of a restoration of the monarchy. DR. HENRY L.
