THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE APRIL 2. 1944 for Father Amb U.S Spain Sub at assador to eceptions er. MADRID (AP) When President Roosevelt appointed Carlton Joseph Huntley Hayes to be Ambassador to Spain 'eary in 1942 he didn't name just one Ambassador he named four; i i turned to College in the Fall she had a whole group of Spanish friends her own age. Through her friends, her parents met their parents. Carroll stayed in Madrid and went to a Spanish school.

The Colegio De Nuestra Senora Del Pilar. Mary Elizabeth rides horseback with one group, plays tennis with another, goes to the University of Madrid with still another. Frequently nhe was hostess at the Embassy for her friends and frequently Carroll was host for his friends there. One of Carroll's companions was the young Duke of ganized the Embassy wives. Save for a small group of Spanish aristocrats, the Embassy social contacts with Spaniards were limited.

Mrs. Hayes mobilized the wives of both Embassy and colony there were less than 10 American women in the whole American colony of Madrid into a team which abandoned its social contacts with each other and set out to know Spaniards and more Spaniards. Mary Elizabeth helped. So did Carroll. Before Mary Elizabeth re Verague, Christopher Columbus, descendant of the Admiral and now a cadet in Spain's naval academy.

Carroll's enthusiasm was aviation, and through it he mt many a Spaniard. The sons of high Army and Navy officers, high government officials, leading aristocrats. French refugees by the thousands poured across the Pyrenees frontiers into Spain shortly after the Hayes family arrived. Few had proper clothes. Not long after the United States entered the war escaped American prisoners, most of them aviators, crossed the mountains, too.

Mrs. Hayes: organized the women of the Embassy and the colony to knit and sew clothes for them. The Summer house in the Embassy garden was filled with dozens of sewing I energetic, capable and modern, a leader in her own right in American women's organizations; Mary Elizabeth Hayes, then 18; and Carroll Hayes, a lithe boy of 16 with all an American youngster's likes, enthusiasms and hobbies. While the Ambassador organized the Ehbassy, Mrs. Hayes or 'Boss Ambassador is, of course, the one Mr.

Roosevelt chose an author, historian and political theorist" of world reputation. Hayes, a Catholic, seemed a good choice to Spaniards when he arrived in May, 1942, five months after Pearl Harbor. With him came Mrs. Hayes, I ye 1 Globe Soil Test Laboratory Analysis of Soil Needs for Victory Gardeners "St Lai imm machines, where American women and their Spanish friends worked for hours each afternoon. The Hayes are seldom alone for lunch or dinner.

But there's always one meal together, breakfast, at which thefamily now three because Carroll has returned to the States pools news and activities of the day before. Perhaps the Ambassador is busy working nights in the Embassy and can't go to this reception or that Mary Elizabeth will be there. Perhaps the Ambassador should but can't call on one of his Spanish friends Mrs. Hayes makes the call instead. Perhaps the Ambassador hasn't heard from this Spanish high official in a long time Carroll calls on the friend's son.

S. Dedham, The specimen you sent to me came from a poplar tree populus del-toides. In the Spring it produces catkin-like spikes the same as pussywillows do. Can you tell me what would cause the leaves of my oxtongue cactus to be chewed off, apparently at night, leaving the stems bare? G. B.

Bridgewater. It is my opinion that your plant is suffering from too much kindness. If you will withhold water and food from the cactus for a period of 20 to 30 days I wouldn't be surprised if it would take on a new lease of life.
