THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1939. FIVE 'BRAIN TRUSr ONLY AN IDEA President Ridicules Story And Claims Press Created The "Ghost" WASHINGTON, Sept. 13.—Mention of the Brain Trust at a press conference Tuesday set President Roosevelt off on a ghost story. The Brain Trust, he said, was a two-headed Corcorau-Colien banshee (ghost to you) which had been created by the press and finally laid to rest by the press. He said with a grin that the ghost had been killed by reporters at Hyde Park Sunday in writing about an executive order reorganizing the White House staff. This remark apparently referred to news despatches quoting a statement by the President's secretary, Stephen Early. In commenting on the White House staff reorganization, Early said on Saturday: "It is out of the window for the much-heralded and celebrated crea tures of the imagination. We have heard and read about the Brain Trust. Here's an emergency. Here's an executive order. I do not see any place for those we previously heard about." President Roosevelt said today that the status of Thomas Corcoran and Benjamu Cohen, administration attorneys and bill-phrasing consultants, had not been changed by the order. AVhen a reporter oh the outer fringe of the crowd inquired whether the expression "out the window" had originated in the minds of the press, the Chief Executive replied indirectly, saying the phrase had been invented by Al Smith. At the end of the discussion, a •woman reporter said she was still •uncertain about the status of Corcoran and Cohen. The President replied he thought she should be. There actually are white blaclc- "berries. Housewives say, Its OKAY.' Join the thousands oC housewives who •use the pleasant way to relieve inorganic liondachc. periodic pain or neuralgia. They take Capudinc, a standby remedy for forty years. Capudine quickly relieves pain, soothes tense nerves, brings deliKhtful relaxation. lOc, 30c. GOc. CAPUDINEfor HEADACHE Bamboo Rakes R. D.

The difficulties—delay and limited information—continuing into the second week of the Avar, are attributed in part by officials to the problem of organization involved in setting up censorship and lack of agreement between ministry officials and military authorities. INVESTIGATE 21,420; ALL ARE INNOCENT BTJTTE, Mont., Sept. 13 (#»)— The department of justice has investigated -21,420 persons suspected of a part in the kidnap murder of Charles Mattson and found them all innocent. That information was contained in a letter from FBI headquarters in Washington to W. Guy Banister, special agent in charge of the Butte field office, recently. Tips concerning the case have come to FBI agents from all parts of the nation, the letters said. Each tip had to be investigated thoroughly on the chance it might be "the right dope." Charles Mattson, Jr., was kid- naped from his home at Tacoma, Wash., and was held for $28,000 ranson on December 27, 1936. His body was recovered near Everett, Wash., on January 11, 1937. The case is one of two unsolved kid- napings on FBI records. The other case was that of Peter Levine, of New Rochelle, N. Y., kidnaped February 24, l!)3S.
