The Maryland Merry-Go-Round By DREW PEARSON Unless something entirely unfor- seen happens, Congressman Ainu Goldsborough will become; a justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia very early in the coming session of Congress. In fact the President plans to send "Alan's name up to the Senate among the first batch of appointments, probably the first week in January. This will climax a long career foi Goldsborough, during which he became one of the most popular gentlemen the Eastern Shore ever ha sent to Congress. During his many years in Congress he won a reputation for being painstaking in looking out for hk Eastern Shore constituents, and in recent years for being devotedly loyal to Roosevelt. It was the latter which is winning him his promotion to the judiciary. Roosevelt is a man who rewardb hi : friends, does the reverse to his enemies, and the hospitality extended to the President at Denton last Labor Day has not been forgotten. Goldsborough will follow in the footsteps of Judge Harry Covington of Talbot County, who was elected to Congress in 1909, but resigned in 1914 when Woodrow Wilson appointed him to the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. What Senators Tydings and Radcliffe will have to say about the confirmation of Congressman Goldsborough remains to be accn. But it seemr that they cannot very well oppose n Congressman with whom they have- served for many years. While there never has been any love lost between . Tydings and Goldsborough, to all outsiders they got along perfectly. Thus it would be a little late for Tydings to oppose this confirmation on personal grounds. And it would leave a very bad taste in the mouths of the Senator's constituents on the Eastern Shore. Lee and Bruce An extremely significant meeting took place in Baltimore the other duy he got a long distance call bringing the surprising newt, that Ainolt., though u Democrat, had ca t aside his pledge and voted to letain Anil-Icy Jlok-sworth, the Republican hoKl- over, as cleik. Dave intimates that lie will t-vt"i the score with Arnold at the next election. Not between 1844 and the p i e s e i ; has a Marylander acted as Secretary af State. Toda, Sunnier Welles ul Prince Geoiges Count is serving in the latter capacity and ha, the entire foreign relations of the United States in his hands at this extremely important period. State Department custom makes him virtually the superior to his chief, Secretary of State Hull, while the latter is attending the Pan American Conference in Limn. It if Welles who ha- sat in with the President recently when such important deci-ions were' taken as the rctui n of Ambassador Johnson from China and Ambassador Wilson from Germany. Welles fir-t got to know President Roosevelt at the latter's wedding, Welles having the same god-mother as Mrs. Roosevelt. They have been close friends ever since, and the ir- litation which Roosevelt felt when went to Europe during tho Tydings-Lewia prlnmry campaign seems to have healed completely. Latest" Marylander before Welles to net as Secretary of State was John Nelson during the administration of John Tjler. Actunlly Nelaon was attorney general. But after Daniel Webster retired, he was one of several who served ad interim us Secretary of State. Nelson held the position fo r one month, retiring in favor ef John C. Calhoun on April 1, 1844. Merry-Go- Round Some of Roosevelt's friends have been looking around for a possible Washington vacancy for Governor Harry Nke. Roosevelt and the amiable Harry always got along admir- Winter Arrives--Officially between Brooke Lee, political poten-1 ably, and there are various jobs from tate of Montgomery County, and.time to time which can be held only Howard Bruce, chief backer of the I new Governor. Present also was Clarence Miles. Major Lee, who was talking also for his close friends in Frederick and Washington counties, including Dave Winebrenner, pointed out to Bruce and Miles that he and his political votes friends the in controlled eighteen legislature--eighteen votes essential to Governor O'Conor to put across his legislative program. Lee indicated that these eighteen delegates would completely cooperate with the Governor, if he and his friends, in turn, were given a hand in the distribution of state patronage. He pointed out, for instance, that Jim Pugh, state's attorney in Montgomery County and O'Conor'^ campaign manager there, was not an individual with sufficient experience to handle O'Conor's patronage. Lee's! Reversal It was a significant and somewhat pathetic scene. Howard Bruce and Lee, spokesman for Ritchie, long have been bitter political enemies. Bruce hag been out to destroy the Lee-Winebrenner-Walsh line-up in Western Maryland. Therefore, it took considerable humility for Major Lee, once the swashbuckling guillotine man, to bow before the new boss of Maryland. However, Brooke's political position is none too rosy at present. He has not a chance at federal patronage. He has already promised five to eight people for every job there is available So he went to see Howard by Republicans, such as minority appointments on the Federal Power Commission and the Federal Communications Commission . . .

This vacation was somewhat disastrous to Dave's political organization. Before he left Frederick, Dave had carefully convened the state central committee, Democratic and called in commissioners, the two Charles G. Geisbert and George V. Arnold. Together, they decided that George F. Abracht should be appointed clerk to the board of county commissioners, an important patronage job. But while Winebrenner was away, rage. CQr .
