The Maryland Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON Here are some impoitant inside facts regarding Mayor Jackson, young Mr. O'Conor, Governor Nice and the Administration in Washington which may help to inteipret the worried headlines in the Baltimoiu Sun over the Mayor's aloofness fioin the O'Conor campaign. In the first place, it should bo noted that the Ro»-e\t-lt Administiation feels anything but friendly towaul O'Conor, Howard Bruce and Tydings. It lumps all three of them together, and it blames Howard Bruce more than anyone foi the lecalcitrant attitude of O'Conor toward the New Deal, plus the thousands of Wall Street funds which came down to suppott his and Tdings' campaign. In the second place, it diould be noted that the President has the warmest possible place in his hc.irt for Harry Nice. He likes the Governor personally, enjoys his seibe of humor, feels that Nice actually is more of a New Dealer than a good many Maryland Dcmociats, also Roosevelt has received excellent cooperation from Nice on all administrative matters. Third, it can be stated that Roosevelt is interested in Maryland Democrats who will support a liberal Democracy in 1940. He is not interested in running himself, but he is very definitely interested in a Now Healer being the presidential nominee in 1940. Mayor Jackson Naturally, no one as powerful politically as Howard Jackson can be overlooked. Toward Jackson the President personally has the kindliest feelings. So also do most of his inner council advisers, including Harry Hopkins and Secretary Ickes, who have found Jackson to be an efficient administrator and n man of his word as far as federal projects are concerned. There is one exception among the President's advisers, namely Jim Far- ilar cause in Maryland by going to bat for Davey Lewis against reactionary "Milord" Tydings. But at that quite a bit between the lines of tho ladio rpeeeh given lust week bj Fai- nier Ciibej of Gaitheisbiug. Thiy regard it as tcpiescnting certain views held by the gentlemen in the White House, and in this surmise they a i e i ight. Probably that is the reason \vh\ the Baltimnic- Sun consideicd it \vi e to gi\o Eugene Casey the cold shoulder. This is the tieatment aluiiys meted out by the Sun when it is nfi.iid of any political upset of its self-up- propiiatcd habit of running tho affairs of the Fiec Stiito. Real fact is that high Administration leadeis, including the Whitu House, had given the gieen light to Casey and the idea of oiganizing a progressive liberal Democracy in Maiyland. Also impoitant is the fact that the Maryland move is only onu of several stalling in other state- , among them Virginia and Georgia. The Georgia move has already started, and the Virginia p i o g i u m is quietly organizing for a big push immediately after elections. In all three states, federal patronage will play an important part, and not one, even a $1200 clerkship, is going to drop into the hands of old line Democrats, according to present plans. Casey's speech attracted considci- able attention outside of Maryland, especially his call upon the Demociatic Party to remain Democratic and to begin now its organization for a liberal Democratic nominee for 1940. Note--Wonder what George Radcliffe thinks of the Ca/=ey movement. O'Conor's Chant A strangely familiar chant is heard in the campaign speeches of Heibert R. O'Conor. On the surface confident of election, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee asks that a legislature be sent to Annapolis which will put thtough hL program.

Jim says you can trust Willie, whereas he is not so keen about playing ball with Mayor Jackson. Many other New Dealers have directly the contrary idea, They don't like Willie Curran in the slightest degree. Farley also once had a warm spot in his heart for Herb O'Conor, partly because they are both good Iiish- men, but this has cooled a bit lately. The upshot of all this is that Farley wants Roosevelt to keep as aloof as possible from the Maryland political picture until after elections. Farley, despite his present coolness toward O'Conor, would far rather see a Democrat elected than a Republican. time O'Conor was anything but sympathetic. In fact, ho has been so reticent about the New Deal that even his Republican opponent, Gov. Harry W. Nice, has taunted him on the subject. At Upper Marlboro, Nice pointed out that the Democratic platfoi n hadn't given ciedit "to our great Piesident and his administration." The governor noted, too, that O'Conor "was silent to the point of a grave on the New Deal" while a year ago he was quite "vocal" on the subject.

And more particularly it does not mean that New Deal forces will not be active in Maryland after elections. Because they will. Furthermore, it is more than likely that Howard Jackson will be invited to the White House In the near future for a friendly personal talk. What will come out of it no one knows, but it might have interesting political consequences. Judicial Dignity When the Democratic political caravan moved through Montgomery County, the redoubtable Stedman ("Nippy") Prescott, candidate for judge, performed the heroic feat of telling the same story three times, I exactly the same way, without the I change of a line, a coma or a voice inflection. No one was able to give the polit ical point of Nippy's story, if any but anyway here it is. After explain ing that a candidate for judge was not supposed to discuss politics, Car. didate Stedman said: "A school teacher was trying to illustrate the iniquities of alcohol and took two tumblers, one containing whisky and the other containing water. "She put a worm in the one containing water and all he did was swim merrily around. Then she put a worm into the glasn containing whisky and he turned up his toes and sank to the bottom. "'Now children,' asked the teacher, ·what does that teach you?' "There was complete silence. Finally one little boy said: " 'I don't know teacher, unless that if you drink whisky you wont get worms'." This ended Mr. Prescott's speech to the voters of Montgomery County regarding his qualifications for a judgeship. Farmer Casey Maryland politicoes are reading doubtedly a plot by Democrats feai- ful the foimer Washington bascbaM hero will be elected in November. But Johnson isn't particularly worried. Of course he resents the campaign, and contends it was inspired to "smear" him. But he is of the opinion it will boomerang and will make him more votes than it will lose. Johnson -=ays that scores of Democrats who resent their party's tactics have pledged him support. Walter won the nomination by a 20 to 1 majority, and county Republicans expect him to lead the ticket in November.
