Prepared by the Editors of TIM B The Weekly Newtttigggfi LION MEETS LAMB— >N THE ELEVATQR WASffiNQTeNi ©«i ef 8 Vtttor in Washiiiitdn's Metel afd last week stepped President William Green of the American Federation of Labor and George McGregor Harrison, head of A. F, of L.'s three-man committee now trying to reunite the divided House of Labor. Waving his hand in dismay to assembled reporters, photographers and newsreel men, President Green promptly dashed for Suite No. 301-304 while Mr. Harrison shouted: "No comment, no comment." Soon, striding down the corridor, came Chairman John L. Lewis of the Committee for Industrial Organization and Philip Murray, head of C. I. O.'s tenman peace committee, both of Whom patiently posed for a hundred pictures, said nothing, also vanished into Suite No. 301-304. Thus, meeting face-to-face for the first time in seven months, Bill Green and John Lewis were generally expected to hatch the biggest labor story since the strike in "Little Steel." But Chairman Lewis, who was first to emerge from the conference room, only snapped: "General conversations—no conclusions. We are to recess until 4 o'clock"; and that afternoon conferees Lewis and Green could .inly repeat: "Same story as at noon." Once more the lion and the lamb of U. a Labor had met; but despite rising pressure from the rank and file in both camps, they could come no closer to agreement on the two principal points at dispute: What industries are to be designated by mutual consent for industrial organization along C. I. O. lines, and what is to become of C. I. O. Chairman Lewis wants all C. I. O. unions admitted to A F. of T^, settling the jurisdictional questions after they are in; but with nearly, 4,000,000 members, C. I. O. would then dominate A. F. of L. Hence, President Green is willing to take back the twelve suspended C. L O. unions but wants the dual unionism created by the new C. I. O. unions settled by subcommittees before admission. As the two commanders quit last week's meeting grim and glum, merely announced that they would report .back—without recommendations-^to their respective negotiating committees, Mr. Lewis was asked: "Is it the status quo ante?" (meaning war). Replied he: "That would be a fair analysis." DICTATOR?—WOULD BE BORED, SAYS F. D. R. NEW YORK: Soul-searching German Biographer Emil Ludwig was last week dined in Manhattan by his Publisher Bernarr MacFadden, to celebrate the first installment in "Liberty" of his latest work: "Roosevelt—A Study In Fortune and Power." Biographer Lud- wlg revealed that in the course of a recent conversation at the White Home he had asked his subject: "When you have to fight ft Whole day against Congress and the Supreme Court, in Uj« evening are you not Jealous of the dictators who can simply order what they want?" Replied the President: "No, I would hate to be a dictator. I would be bored without opposition." SCRPRISE—AND INSOMNIA CURE WASHINGTON: Arizona's Senator Henry Fountain Ashurst, chairman of the senate judiciary com- mittee'who has publicly referred to himself as the "Dean Emeritus of Inconsistency", last week said to reporters: "If any President so far forgot himself as to appoint me to the Supreme Court, I would never take my place on the bench—because I would die of surprise." Next day the Senator told an auto- graph-begger to write to his office, added: 'Til not only send you my autograph, but the greatest thing for insomnia you ever had—a set of my speeches."

Illinois: Dean Ralph Dennis of Northwestern University's School of Speech last week awarded to Charlie McCarthy, No. 1 U. 5. dummy, the honorary degree of Master of Innuendo and Snappy Comeback. The citation: "He is a prince of parasites, violent in company, churlish in behavior, acid in conversation, wooden-faced in all relationships, and in all other aspects a typical product of higher learning in America." SLOUGH AWARD- MISSOURI VS. ILLINOIS ST. LOUIS, Missouri: Capital of the State of Illinois, just after it was admitted to the Union in 1818. esquely perched on an island in the Missfeslppi River, which divide* Illinois from Missouri, Kaskaskla had lost its chief distinction long before 1881, when the meandering Mississippi changed its channel from the west of Kaskaskia island to the east, washing away part of the town and leaving a willowy, uninhabited slough which now stretches west between Kaskaskla's 107 Inhabitants and the old Missouri shore. Kaskaskla proper still belongs to Illinois. Whether the slough known as Kaskaskia Commons, belongs to Illinois or Missouri is a question which neither state has troubled to settle, but which last week came to the puzzled attention of Judge George Moore in U. S. District Court In St Louis. Four years ago Farmers Archie Clark and Oliver Lankford of Kaskaskia, involved with a group of Missouri farmers in a title dispute over a pasture In the Commons, were arrested for trespassing by Sheriff Henry Drury of Ste. Genevieve, Mo., clapped into his jail for seven days. Farmers Clark and Lankford, charging the complainants and Sheriff Drury with false arrest on the ground that they were arrested in Illinois and jailed In Missouri, last week got their $200,000 damage suit before Judge Moore. The defendants produced some witnesses old enough to recall how the river had changed Itu course, an army map which assigned the Commons to Missouri. The plaintiffs countered with a map made by the U. S. Geological Survey In 1915 assigning the Commons t* JJIinoIs. After three days of tfftimen? Judge. Moore ruled that there was Insufficient evidence to show that the Commons belong to Illinois, tacitly awarded it to Missouri by dismissing the suit PAGE THE TELEPHONE man who threw the grenade.

NEW YORK: Settling in Manhattan after their honeymoon, Mr. and Mrs. John King Roosa, Jr., Republicans, learned that their telephone number (Rhlnelander 4-7428) had once belonged to the town house of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Soon calls came for the Roosevelts, their servants and secretaries. James Roosevelt rang up; a friend of Mrs. Roosevelt telephoned to apologize frantically for being late because she had left theatre tickets at home. After Manhattan newspapers publicized the number, harassed Mrs. Roosa last week ordered the telephone disconnected, went on a trip. JAPANESE INFLATE EGO- VICTORY PARADE- SHANGHAI, China: Many Japanese civilians liquored up heavily in Shanghai last week, shoved and tripped Chinese into gutters as Japanese military forces staged a blatant "Victory Parade" of such length that it took half an hour to pass a given point Leading the victorious troops were Japanese officers in motor cars or on horses so shockingly thin and ill-cared for as to make many a spectator gasp. Well- fed, cleanuni formed Japanese infantry came next, the middle-aged troops of the Son of Heaven, who are invading China while his better, hardier and younger soldiers guard Manchukuo against Soviet Russia. After the infantry came machine guns, then mountain guns dismantled and packed on skinny horses; finally rumbling heavy artillery, munitions wagons and field artillery corps. What happened Just as the Victory Parade passed the corner of Nanking Road was later described by John McPhee, Scottish inspector of Shanghai police: "I saw a figure across the street throw something. I watched a blur coming toward me. The object hit the ground and rolled between my feet. I pushed a Japanese civilian away and turned around just as the object exploded. A piece of shrapnel cut through my coat and hit my police card. I'm pretty lucky. I thought I was a goner." "I saw three Japanese soldiers struck by fragments and stumble haltingly," said Shanghai Publisher George Bruce. "There was a burst of blue-black smoke. The parade broke for a distance of 100 yards. For a moment everything was quiet. Then the Japanese soldiers began scattering to both sides of the street." Nobody had been killed, but there was a short, yelling chase down an alley and a Chinese policeman shot dead a man who was, according to the police marksman, the GIVE Furniture A Gift That Lasts!
