WEDNESDAY, MAY 2-1, 1939 • mi mm Limited Invite List Wilts Many Buckling Hopes In Short Order BY (iKItllY 1HCK NEA Sfcivicc Stan' Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 10. — Nol since they burned Ihe White House in 181-1 have me British, caused such 11 stir in the nation's capilal as they arc causing in connection with the visit of King George and Queen Elizabeth. To be strictly accurate, it isn't so much tlic British that are causing the stir as it, Is the rather large group of excited Washiiig- lonians who are gelling all popeyed about Hie affair. Hut tlic point is that the stir is taking place. Most ol it centers around the big garden parly which is lo be thrown for Ilieir majesties at the British embassy. This thing is being handled with enough formality lo lit a coronation, and (lie acute grief nourished in Hie bosoms 01 people who thought they ought to gel invitations, but didn't, is a pitiful and saddening thing lo behold. STIFF StliKT AFFAIR That this would be a formal affair and no fooling became evident buck in mid-March, when four 01 five carefully selected newspaperwomen were invited to the British embassy and there given an advance flll-in on what the program would probably be like. . Aflcr being lold all of this, Ihe newspaperwomen were informed thai, in no circumstances, were they to print any ot it, unless and until the embassy officially sanctioned it. That sanction never came through. Instead, about a week before their majesties were, due to arrive, ihe newspaperwomen— plus about a dozen more— were called back to the embassy and given all the dope a second time. This dope- included complete details about the way a royal garden party is run. Tliere'll be seme 1400 guests. Top-notch officialdom will be there, of course: Chief Justice and Airs. Hughes, Admiral and Mrs. Stark and General and Mrs. Craig (representing Navy and Army), Speaker and Mrs. Bankhead, Secretary of Stale and Mrs. Hull, Vice President and Mrs. Garner, chiefs of foreign missions, and so on. ••••-,, ,•<• • ,, In addition;, some. 400 "oubsUnd- -;iiuj 'Americans" --from' other pur/ls of the country will be present; they're people in whom their majesties have shown some interest, or else they happen to be folks whom. Ambassador and Mrs. Lindsay think their majesties would enjoy meeting. Where Washington Meets Kino muafmnma »»-.-^——_, ,— . fc) BLYTJllSVlUiB, (AUK.) COURtKR.NBWS Because they didnl receive one of Ihese fancy invitations to the garden'party for ihe king and nuccu of England,. some Washinglon- y nllll PPy-' 'NEA's Gerry Dick got here.- ' OUT OF LUCK Anyhow, all the guests arc told , what time to show up, the idea being to get them draped around the grounds before the king and queen put in an appearance. Once their majesties appear, 'ihe gates ot the embassy will be shut, and latecomers will be turned away. Arriving at the embassy from the White House, the king and queen will go tirst to a portico overlooking Hie garden, while a bant! plays "C.ocl Save the King." Then they come downstairs and strcll about the garden Urtcfiy. Here and there someone will be Dulled out of the crowd to 'come over and be introduced. There'll be no clustering around; the guests are -instructed to form a wide lane for their majesties to pass through. Later, when they have relumed to the balcony to have tea, their majesties will receive certain guests at the tea tfible, such guests being suin- jncnvd by members ot the embassy staff. 11 a rain comes up, the guests will just have to lane it, unless they choose to spend their time huddled under a refreshment, tent. CURTSEY COURTESY NOT NECESSARY •Somehow Hie idea of this for- maluy got all over town, and irnpiesscd tari:»s folk with tlic idea thai the divinity whicn dotn wage a king hedges him even when he's visiting the capital of a democracy. faomeonc circulated a report that the Slate Department protocol section had drawn up elaborate rules presence of the waist, ied time, they are placed on the wnsion list, and have some seciir- ly in their old age, then why not look far enough into the future ind pass this Townsend Plan of annuities? It is estimated there are one Imncired and thirty million people n the United Stales, and of tliis amount there are about eight million who "nave passed the age of sixty, of that number we have around two million who would not qualify lor the annuity, which leaves some six million people who arc dependant in some way or other for a livelihood.

R. 2 \yas inlroduccd ay Mr. Henrtrix of Florida, and :hcn referred to committee, where it has rested since that time. A Sreat deal of pressure is being nought to force this (o a vole at, this term. I have react with interest this all, and believe it is sound in principal, and slioiild pnss, for the reason it docs not interfere with Ihc balancing of the budget which we hear so much of. I want to discuss this bill brief- S from an insurance point of view, for that is exactly what the Townsend Plan is—insurance, In an an- Ulity form. By passing (his hill and rising a ivo percent lav, all wlio are eligi- )le when they attain age sixty, will have some compensation to care them. Tlic numbers are few that are able to buy an annuity maturing at age sixty in sufficient imouiit, to care for them until death. Under our present plan, when wtal employees, railroad, army employees have served their allot- age sixty, which would In a great measure relieve the states from maintaining poor houses, deaf and blind institutes, and relief for llrase sixty years or over. Every Inibiness man should give this bill his careful consideration, and upon doing so I feel that ho will agree in saying it is a worthy hill and would liavs his endorsement for passage. R. N.
