CUTICURA SOAPS OINTMENT Washington Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON (Continued from Page 6) the executive officer of the ship that transported Admiral Cooke's car was his son-in-law. Also there seemed to be something rather unusual about the deal, else U. Com. Donald Shaul, iu charge of port facilities in Shanghai, would not have wired the Admiral's aide in Tsingtao:.' , "First deal fell through. Meyer working on another. .Where is Joe'.' All of us worried." Naval Morale But the" most important thing which Admiral Nimitz overlooked in his whitewash was its effect upon the morale of enlisted men and younger officers. This columnist has received various critical letters from men in the Pacific Fleet about the Admiral's automobile deal. Here is an excerpt from one of them: "Admiral Cooke's car was shipped aboard our ship. Capt.

AT WARDS Counally, Commandant of the Naval Operating Base, Okinawa, couldn't understand why Cooke wanted the car in Shanghai instead of Tsingtao where Admiral Cooke is based. At that time practically everyone in the 7th Fleet knew about the 'bi deal concerning the car,' "We were supposed to carry the car direct to Shanghai after we had lirst stopped at Okinawa and Yoke- suka, Japan. However, we ran into foul weather, and were delayed in unloading at Okinawa. So the order was given: 'Admiral Cooke wants that car in Shangai in a hurry and we are transferring it to a LST in the morning.' " Despite all this, Admiral Nimitz excused his fellow Admiral with thij comment that the sale of the car was "entirely different frpm the prohibited sale in the black market of such articles as Government tax-free cigarettes." Note—Enlisted men in Shanghai are court-martialed for the sale of cigarettes on the black market. So many freshmen Congressmen are being mistaken for page boys that a new order has been issued requiring page boys in the House of, Representatives to wear uniforms . . . Among the new young Congressmen are George Sarbacher of Philadelphia and Jack Kennedy of Boston, ex-Naval hero and son of the former Ambassador to Great Britain. The other day, an old-time Congressman saw one of his colleagues in the rear of the Semite Chamber and snapped his lingers to summon him, mistaking the youngster for a pllge .

Tje Morning HeraMagerstown, Ml, Thursday, March 6,1947 THREE Benefit Claimants Hit Ail-Time High The number of persons drawing jobless benefits in Washington county is at the all-time high figure of 2,013, according to the Hagerstown office of the Unemployment Compensation Board which reported that a temporary layoff of a number of Victor Products Corporation workers was responsible for the increase. The company had previously announced that a number of workers would be laid off for a short period while alterations to one of the plants are completed. A number of applicants for compensation have been dropped from the eligibility lists because they have limited themselves as to the hours they are available for work, the office said, reporting that these applicants were mostly female.
