The Maryland Merry-Go-Round Autumn Paints the Forest By DREW PEARSON There is a quiet movement on foot | All of which has helped give Sumon the part of certain highly placed nor thu nickname "Bow-wow" Welles, people in Washington to get Harry Mrs. Toulson Nice to switcli from the gubernatorial Milliutl Tydings has learned that to the Senate race. in politics it dod-n't pay to attack a How far it will get depends largely lady especially when the lady is one on the Governor himself. He sccnin to I of the most respected members of the think that he has an excellent chance of coming back to Annapolis,' that friction between the O'Conor-Juck- scn groups will bring a big vote for the Republican ticket. This piobably is so. On the other hand, you'can write it down as 100 per cent correct that the Roosevelt Administration would bo delighted to throw its weight to Harry Nice for the Senate if he should shift to that part of the Republican ticket. Nice's views ure a lot nearer Roose- community. Millard gave evidence of this two da8 after the primary when he phoned Mrs. Maude Toulsou, postmaster of S a l L b u i y , saying that he was asking the Postmaster General to drop charges against her. Theie was no question that the Tydings charges against Mn-. Toulson reacted against him on the Eabtein Shore, and hi.s telephone call may indicate that he is expecting real opposition from the Republicans in the velt's than Tydings, and also his la- coming election. bor record is excellent.

Davcy's Reward Nothing was said to Davcy Lewis about a New Deal reward in case he was defeated by "Milord" Tydings, but there was never any doubt about j i t iti the mind of the White House.

Welles always has been considered the likely choice to oppose George Radcliffe in 1040, so it was expected that he would lend an important hand in the Roosevelt-Lewis drive against Tydings. Lhc Bituminous Coal Commission. Davey helped write the Guffey Coal Act, was a miner at the age of nine, and L? thoroughly familiar with the L-ntire coal industry. Since there is a commissionship open, this appointment is considered ideal. Another opening is that of the Assistant Secretary of Labor. Madame Autumn's official arrival September 23 has already been forecast in the northern woods where Jack Frost's paint brushes have tipped the leaves with brilliant browns, reds and yellows.

Jim had some difficulty locating 1 Sumner, but at last reached him in Switzerland, reminded him that they were expecting a contribution. Welles replied that it was on its way. It arrived four days later--just one day before the campaign closed. The check was for $500. Jim Farley nearly fell over backward when he heard about it. He had expected at least $5,000. The President had expected more. Second thing which put Welles in the dog-house was the action of Lansdale Sasscer, big boss of Prince George'c County and close friend of Sumner Welles. Welles and Sasscer have been working together in closest harmony, Welles boosting the other's gubernatorial ambitions, Sasscer! both, and is considered just the man for this important post. Charles Delmar Charley Delmar, who stepped out of the^ Republican Senatorial race earlier in the summer, is back from Europe with some potent observations regarding the war situation there. Shortly after his return, and before the situation got tense in Czechoslovakia, he gave an interesting report to Harry Nice which has been more than borne out by subsequent developments. He reported that Britain and France would yield to Germany in order to prevent war, and that joint pressure would be used by all the powers to bring the Czechs into line. Several State Department officials have asked Delmar to drop in and give them the benefit of his European close-up. Merry-Go-Round boosting Welles' senatorial ambitions!

Brown's withdrawal from the race undoubtedly brought Senator Smith a lot more votes than he would have received otherwise. That a majority of the voters of the etate did not concur in the President's desires was as significant in the total of national affairs as if he had pionounccd against coiti- bread for breakfast, and the people continued on their usual diet. He never attempted to dictate how they rihould vote but merely expressed his own preference, and gave his icasons for not wishing so pronounced a foe of his policies to be in the National Legislature.

According to the California Chamber of Commerce there are 811,000 in the state eligible for such a pension. In vain was adduced the argument that the project, if adopted, would bankrupt the state. The lure of thiity dollars a week overcame even the influence of the Roosevelt bucking for the Senator. By and large, the complexion of the next Congress does not appear as likely to be materially changed by the primary results so far or those in prospect.
