B> Douglas Larwn NKA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON— (NEA>— You'd lever guess it from the burning out of here about foreign military aid,' five per centers, un- mployment, ntomic secrets and the Communist threat, but the real Nnmher 1 problem facing the na- .ion's capital Ls how to lick the in- ;olernble dog days. Even the old-timers don't remember a summer AS torrid, .sticky and miserable as the one that has nade this community literally the lot-scat of government. Most bitter about the whole thing to take advantage of one of the most efficient plants in the city, the one cools their offices. every week-end he- can make it. ••In the winter I go to the great, state of Florida to keep warm a'^jf,' in the .summer I go there to keep" cool," he explains.

Week-ends he flees to his (laugh tor's summer in are the congressmen chained town to sweat over the President's program. Ordinarily they'd be back home fishing, swimming or mi some junket to Alaska or of Jonesboro, aunts of Russell Campbell, were reported in improved condition today after an auto accident Sunday near Chattanooga. Miss Belle Whitsitt will be confined to the Newell Hospltsl in Chattanooga with a fractured collarbone. Miss Alice Whitsitt. who received a twisted knee and ankle. bruise,*; and lacerations, and Mrs. Joe Trice, who was accompanying them and who also was sliehtly injured, arc able to be up. They will stay in Chuttanoopa until Miss Whitsitt Ls sufficiently improved to return to her home. The accident occurred when the brake."; of theEr car failed to hold on a steep mountain curve. Every person with any sense, who can, has gotten out of town, j That includes most of the riip!o_- j mats, members of the Supreme I :ourt, most of the congressmen's ! wives, and any government official with the remotest excuse for making a field trip to someplace where it's cooler than here. And it's incredible the number of Pentagon, admirals and generals who have suddenly found it vital to national defence to inspect bases in Michigan. Montana and Maine and to take cruises in the North Atlantic. • * • Thf most popular iirm in town .Is an air conditioning machine.
