TUESDAY, MARCH 8, 1949 !ep. Sol Bloom [Dies Suddenly Colorful New York Democrat Was Expert On Foreign Affairs WASHINGTON, Mure)) 8. (/r; — I Rep. Sol Bloom, who rose from 1 cliilrthood of near-poverty to rlcli&s Land world prominence, died sud- [dcnly last night. The colorful New York Democrat, [chairman of the House fbrelgn Af- I fairs Committee and a Cnmllliir lig- Im-e in the nation's capital for al- linnst 30 years, WAS stricken with a I heart attack at the Naval Hospital I in Betlie.sda, Md., almost on the I eve of lite 79th birthday. I The veteran lawmaker's death I raught him at the top of a fabulous I career. It Included such varied pur- I suits as fong-wrlting, acting, basl- HF.M enterprise.'!—which reportedly made him a millionaire before he I was 20—a»d filially a seat In Congress and a position as one of the most prominent makers of American foreign policy. Bloom was a man with many friends and few enemies. His death brought expression* of regret flooding from officials and the Congrcss- [ men with whom he had served continuously for 27 years. President Truman said he was "shocked and saddened" at the news and commented that the Congressman from New York "will be I greatly missed and widely mmirn- | ed." Heath Mournrd Secretary of State Aclieson term- lad Bloom "a bulwark for the foreign affairs of the United States" and observed that his death, "a grievous loss to tile whole country, j Is to me the loss of an old and dear | friend." Bloom's birthday—which he had planned to celebrate as usual by throwing one huge party for friends and newsmen, and another bigger one for needy children—was just two days off. He was born in Pckin, III., the son of poor Polish Immigrants. Almost his only education was hand*d down by his mother, a Hebrew scholar. At the age of eight, his family moved to San Francisco. Some seventy years later he was to return to the bay city as one of the rounding fathers of the United Nations organization. In the Intervening years he made his mark In many fields—but principally In show business. He wrote the popular song "Coon, Coon, Coon," and—following the sinking of the battleship Maine off Cuba—"The Heroes Who Sank witn the Maine," which sold millions of copies. ~—v_ r As a promoter at the Chicago World's Fair of 1983, he Introduced sideshow freaks and muscle-dancers—for whom he composed extemporaneously the tune of the now- famotis "Hootchy Kootchy Dance." Remaining In Chicago, he built up a chain of eighty music stores and made a fortune publishing sheet music. Defeated GOP Opponents In 1923, Bloom accepted the Democratic nomination for Congress in New York's 19th district- for many years a Republican stronghold. Bloom's district never went Republican again. It was 1932 before the Congressman from New York really achieved prominence in Congress. In that year, as head of the George Washington Bicentennial Commission, he directed a vast publicity campaign which made the anniversary one of the most widely celebrated the nation had ever seen—and brought Bloom the title "Washington's pre r -s agent." Bloom became chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee in 1939. Known as an administration stalwart, lie led the House fight for virtually every foreign affairs proposal sent to Congress by his friend, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Bloom was left a widower a few years ago. He had one daughter Vera. \ Trolley lines in the United States once had special cars to carry milk and mail, also street sprinkling cars, and in one instance, a funeral car!
