Congress Has Two Glamor Girls Now By PEGGY POOR United Press Staff Corresponden WASHINGTON, U.R--The 780 congress meeting Wednesday has the same number of women members--eight--as the last one, bit the addition of what one male member called two glamor girls may get the feminine contingen more publicity than ever before. The two new women members are Mrs. Clare Boothe Luce, (R- Conn.) who defeated a man to become probably the best-known congresswoman, and Miss Winifred C. Stanley, (R-N. Y.). So far, the only congressiona comment on the newcomers has been directed at their beauty * * * "They look like a couple of editors of a fashion magazine," one male member said. Mrs. Luce was a fashion editor at one time, before she became a playwright an foreign correspondent. Miss Stanley came to "congress through more usual political lines having been the first woman assistant district attorney in Erie county, New York. She almos nosed out Mrs. Luce for the glamor girl title Tuesday when cameramen set up shop on the capito steps to welcome new members. * * * Missing from the 78th congress Rep. Jeannette Rankin, (R- Mont.) who voted against declaration of war with Germany in 1917 and with Japan last year. She was succeeded by Mike Mansfield democrat. Other women house members all returning from last session, are Margaret Case Smith (R-Mainc) Frances P. Bolton (R-Ohio), Edilt Nourse Rogers (R-Mass.). Jessie Sumner (R-I11.), and Mary T Norton (D-N. J.) * * * This gives the republican women a six-to-one majority in the house, but the democrats have the senate contingent all to themselves, the only woman senatoi being Hattie W. Caraxvay of Arkansas. Mrs. Luce, after dodging the press on her arrival two days ago, held a press conference Tuesday and later visited other women members. To reporters who asked about her chances for a seat on the foreign affairs committee, a post she has expressed preference for, she replied that she would "abide by the rules." * * * Representatives B o l t o n and Rogers are members of the committee and Mrs. Luce's chances "or an appointment might be bet- :er if one of them gave up her seat, but Representative Bolton said things "were not handled that way." Mrs. Luce had one admirer al- ·eady in the feminine bloc. Rep- esentative Smith, who served as ler husband's secretary when he vas a representative and then ook his place in 1940, said "she's modern, just modern. And she ooks like a woman with a mind )f her own." "I like her looks," she added '"I ike her style." --o-JOINT INSTALLATION POSTPONED TO JAN. 21 The A. M. O. S. and L. O. T.
