One (.iuorgiu businessman franker than the rest is genial Chip Kobcrt, ex-Treasurer of the Democratic National Committee and enjrincer for some of the biggest Army-Navy construction jobs. Chip candidly .admits that 'b<; pulled all the wires possible to put the cracker dictator on the throne of Georgia. Chip is not so (rank, however, is not so about one hitherto undlsclo.iod brush he had with rctlrinR Cover- __ ,.„.„ .„. „ nor Ellis Arnnll which may shed ' c iVnt' 'TrunvTn, instead", "he began Mr. Robert Immediately dropped his plans for entertaining Presi on his love for Talmadge. Some time «s°. Governor Arnall called at the White House and in vlted President Truman to visit Georgia, the second homeiof Franlt- lin Roosevelt. Truman tentatively ncccpted, though plarus -were left indefinite. Shortly thereafter, Chip Robert went Ho tho White House and also Invited Truman to come to Georgia. And, unlike Arnall, who had said little to the press, Chip fwvn out a detailed statement of his plans for entertaining tho President 'of the United States. Back in Atlanta, Governor Ar- iMill read Chip',* ornate entertainment schedule in the morning pn- pn'. Immediately he picked up the telephone and called Mr. Robert. "Chip," said the Governor, "j""5ec you have invited the President to come to GeorKln. That's fine. I also note thru you're urran^'cd for 'him to have brmkfast at the Driving Club, n luncheon nt tho City Club and >v reception at the Atlanta Billmore. That's fine, too. Wo Georgians are hospitable.

It Is Delaware County — run by tho notorious McCIuro machine, u bunch of Ramblers, bootleggers, and petty chiselers. And If there is one spot in Washington that reaily noeds cleaning up, it Is the Sort:cant-at-Arms office in the House of Keprpscntii- tives, presided over lor 13 yean by a genial democratic M^o-tracV. fan and oil speculator, who left behind n shortage of over $125.000. Yet of all pl'occs, and with th« entire' USA to pick from, thn Republicans went to graft-ridden Delaware, County, Pennsylvania, (former home of this columnlstl to pick tho man entrusted with cleaning up the Democratic Scr- geant-nt-Arma mess. The new Republican Sorgeant-ol- Arms, William Russell, was form-1 or treasure!- of Delaware County.' placed in that oflice by the famous i McClure machine.

It was a 'bonanza deal and would •hnve netted him more than his $12,000 salary had nqt some of tha checks bounced. One $10,000 check signed by John . Smi'th. ex-Congressman from.

Romne.y apparently knew it wa no good, so never tried to cash i Incidentally, the s-ibrtagos tended hack to the Republican day between 1GKG and 1930. so Sorgoan st-Arms trouble apparently is a ancient nvil enjoyed by both pat tics. It will now be interesting t see how now incumbent Russcl trained in the malodorous politic of Delaware County, Pa,, handle his important office. •FOLLOWING SENATE APPROVAL of the. resolution to continue tho special Senate War Investigating Committee tor-another year, three member! ol the committee'meet in the.
