Los Angeles—It looks like Jimmy Roosevelt is definitely coming into his own. Once a callow youth, floundering under the weight of a famous name, Jimmy dealt with almost anybody who came along. At one time he was the political pal of Mayor Jam'es Curley of Boston Another time his life insurance sales to George Washington Hill of the American Tobacco conrpany didn't help the noowx-elt fun illy. However, Jlmmie la 42, now. and the year.] have done something to him. He hn.s excellent political Judgment. He is careful about friends.

Shcrmmi Shows Spunk On the West Coast where the ndmdrals first hatched their revolt things are a lot different now that Adm. Forrest Sherman has taken over l.ho Navy helm. ]-Ic's atcerlng a steady course and rebellious admiral* are climbing back aboard. Sherman's policy Is friendly but firm. Hi- demonstrated thai. he could uj)(, mi Iron hand not only by nlwllHhlntf operation 23, the Navy propaganda unit, but by cracking- down on another Navy propa- Ktinda neat at Pensacola, Fla. There, the Navy was even mlmco- Kraphlnj,' form letters of com- IrJnltit to congreisamen, then handing them out to the congressmen's conwtituenta to sign. But Admiral Sherman sent hla deputy, Adm. John Price, to Pensacola, and stopped the smear campaign. Adm. John Roevej, l n charge of the operation, is being replaced and will retire in April. Simultaneously, Sherman showed he wasn't a yes-man by letting Capt. John Crommelln off with a shai(?i rebuke. This was a decision which Rear Ad'na. George Russell, the Navy Judge Advocate, urged Sherman to duck, and dump In the lap of Secretary of. the Navy Matthews. But Sherman replied: "Cron mefin is under my command, and I'll take the responsibility." Though Sherman had been .smeared by his fellow ndmlrals II.H a "Quisling," he didn't barge Into his new office swinging the ax. He started by "golni? to school," and calling In each bureau chlof to bring him' up to date on naval affairs. Result: Peace and order is beginning to come back to the armed forces. NOTE: Admiral Sherman decided upon a naval career at tho age of six when he first sot foot on u battleship, the U. S. S. Kentucky. AH early as 12 ho showed hU son- mnnBhllpl and spunk while sailing off the New England In o whaleboat with 'his grandfathe/r. Several miles off shore, his grandfather died at the helm, and young Sherman brought the boat 'home :nfely through choppy water.
