In tribute to him, a stained glass window has been contributed, on which will be told the story of brotherhood of the chaplains of different faiths who died together.

Inspired By Sermon The chapel itself came into being as the result of a sermon preach- tention of the American people to Rev. Burk's suggestion to honor Washington at Valley Forge.

When he played over the record, he refused to let it go on the air, asked Benes to rewrite it. Benes made a few changes, then recorded his speech again. Whereupon the Communists took a dozen or go sentences from the record, end used this to broadcast to the Czech people. Note Premier Gottwald is so afraid British agents may spirit Benes out of the country that the sickly President is still being watched day and night. SENATOR'S WIVES Secretary of State Marshall made a direct appeal the other day to the wives of Senators and Congressmen to help quiet war hysteria and calm Washingtons jittery nerves. At an off-the-record meeting of the Womens Congressional Club, the soldier-diplomat rumbled: A lot of people in the past have been emotional over the prospects of war, but they have gone beyond that now. They have become pas sionate. Admitting that these are "trying times, Marshall urged the wives to "keep cool" and use "common sense. "Of course," he added with a flicker of a smile, you cant divorce emotion entirely, because we are uot made that way. Th women were warned In advance that they could not bring guests. For the first time in the club's history, the meeting was kept strictly off-the-record. Marshall recalled that Russia had vowed to fight the Marshall Plan after if was first announced. "They will do everything they can to fight it, he added. On the other hand, he pointed out that some rough sailing had to be expected. Recalling his visit to the Governors' Conference in Salt Lake City last year, Marshall de-' scribed the governors' clash over the tax question. "I asked them, said the Secretary, "if the governors of the United States couldn't agree, how they expected 16 nations to get A sketch showing the Washington Memorial Chapel as it will look when the bell tower is added on its right. The firm of architects which designed the chapel was engaged to plan the tower, in a complementary Gothic form.

Although their ultlmat Important must tampered by bigger things In Europe, apparently littl relief my xpectd from th tim-honord complications Latin American politics and Highly esteemed wilj. be th man who solves this perennial riddle. So far there ar no takers, but th problems multiply. More seriously, th fact is, that they ar almost never unrelated. For Instance, war in Costa Rica may be just on of those things. Again, It may be a tell i nq point in the battle for th Western Hemisphere's leadership still a moot point with some South Ameri- can countries. They would have you believe that although Uncle Sam Is th world's most likely top boss, he's Just another name In S. A. And th point it not too lightly taken in the face of the meeting of 21 American nations set for Bogota late this month. Surprises ar anticipated. Argentine Is still itching for leadership of a South American bloc. There ar those Communists, and there as always Is that sensitiveness to Yanqul domination. Th fact that th meeting Is being held five years late originally scheduled for 1943, may prove a Stupidity on our part Five years Is long time for antipathies and misunderstandings to build themselves into causes. But we were busy with Europe and couldn't make it It suggests a possibility that, perhaps, we might do worse than concentrate consistently long One unforgettable dav hack in 1939, a British agent came to my office and showed me a remarkable new pen invented by a Hungarian named Biro. "It will write for three years without running out of ink. the Englishman declared. Though the pen wasnt completely perfected, I realized at first glance that my eyes beheld a Rold mine. And for the unbelievable sum of one dollar, I obtained first option on American manufacturing rights to the revolutionary ball pen. War exploded in Europe shortly afterwards. Inventor Biro had trouble dodging Nazi agents and per-fertinn of the pen was rielaed. But on another unforgettable day in 1943, an improved ball pen was brought to me for inspection. It wrote beautifully. But while I disassembled that particular model, a little spring shot into my left eye. Skillful surgery and six weeks mediral care saved my sight. I damned the ball pen, forfeited all rights and got my dollar back. My vision got better and better. Then, on another unforgettable day a few years later, with perfect eyesight I read the following headline In a trade publication- "Ball pen aale approach $100 million mark." But, of course, I did get my dollar back. Years' ago, Winchell Smith and I produced a play called Three Wise Fools, which opened at the Criterion with the reckless pace of a snail. Smith always hated the show. One Wednesday, when there was $58 in the box-office, the two of us stood in front of the Criterion at the corner of 44th Street and Broadway, disconsolately watching a million people pass by. My partner snarled at me, "You insisted on doing this farce, didn't you? "Yes, I replied, miserably. "Rotten cast. he fumed, just nobodies!" "I know it, I mumbled apologetically. And the Criterion theatre! he went on. Hasn't had a decent show in it for two years. And you had to pick It. I was almost on the verge of tears, but he continued relentlessly "Criterion! What a name for a theatre! Where did that word ever come from? What does it mean?" "If you look in the dictionary, 1 said weakly, "you'11 see that a criterion la 'a thing to go by. Well just look at those people, cried' Smith. Theyre going by, all right not a blasted one coming In! crrl(tit, IMS, N. Y. Pit Car. To celebrate a recent birthday. I went back to my home town and visited my old Roys Club where the youthful members planned a party in my honor. Arriving by early train, I took advantage of an opportunity to stroll through the club building and to relive many happy memories. Unannounced, 1 wandered from room to room, suddenly finding myself in the work shop where a bunch of the boys were bickering about how a tie rack should be made. When one of them recognized me, all jabbering stopped and they became tongue-tied. Wishing to break the embarrassing silence I took over as in the old Boys' Club days and proceeded to show them how a tie rack should be designed, sawed, fitted, sanded and stained. It was a beautiful job, if I say so myself, and the young workmen, who had stood obediently to one side, thanked me for my efforts. I went my way rejoicing. During the evening festivities, a committee of the boys representing the club, presented me with a present. I unwrapped it and read this note: "Happy birthday, Mr. Armstroag, and thanks for designing the tie rack just the way you wanted it. Letters EASTER SEAL SALE Editor.
