Hoegh has moved in and out of 'her home here three times during her married, life But the fourth move,. Thursday to Washington, D.C., will be a good deal different from the, others. This time, ,Mury Louise Hoegh does not expect to come back. The wife of the new Federal Civil Defense Administrator naturally takes pleasure in the thought of moving into a brand- new home in a Maryland suburb of the''national capital. Painful To Leave But just as naturally, she finds it painful to leave the house she. designed in 1941 to suit her taste and fit around hei furniture. While Mrs. Hoegh fpllowed her husband during his wartime military service, and.during the two years she made her official home in the governor's mansion in Des Moines, the pleasant two-story frame colonial house in Chariton waited, furnished, for the family to return. This time, the house is being sold—by private negotiation with a Chariton resident. And although i the Houghs are taking most of ] their furniture and numerous other items to Washington with them a whole garageful of things were sold at auction last Saturday. Many of the items of antique or historical interest which Mrs. Hoegh enjoys so much are being J taken tp Washington. So also are !a number of items of glassware, china, pottery and silver, most of J which are conversation pieces if not actual antiques. All during the blistering hot spell, Mrs. Hoegh worked her way through chests an<* closetsful of poignant decisions: What to take, j what to leave, of 16 years' accumulation. Her dining room table she parted with, substituting for it, in Washington, a smaller one suitable for everyday family meals. The new kitchen has space only for a breakfast bar. "We must sit down together to at least one meal a day," Mrs. Hoegh says firmly, with her mind on the table manners of two growing daughters. But among tb> things making the trip is the drawerful of thank- you notes written to Mrs. Hoegh by the myriad school children. Brownies and other young visitors who trooped through the governor's mansion during Mrs. Hoegh's open houses there. Colonial Exterior The new four-bedroom house, In a new Maryland development named Westwood, has trie colonial exterior Mrs. Hoegh favors: Red brick, white trim, green shutters. Its floor plan, however, is an up- to-date split level, and complete with built-in kitchen appliances. The site incorporates Mrs. Hoegh's other stipulation. "I told them not to show me anything without a tree," she relates. The lot js heavily wooded with dogwood, various oaks and other timber. Although the administrative offices of the Civil Defense Administration are in Battle Creek, Mich., the Hoeghs are expected to live in Washington. Mr. Hoegh's duties include attending weekly Cabinet meetings, and the President's news conference. His offices, at 2000 Florida, are only about five miles from the Hoegh's new home. Although the children of many public officials in the capital attend private schools, the Hoegh daughters will enter public school in Maryland. Believe In Public Schools "We believe, in public schools," Mrs. Hoe,gh com me n t s. "The neighborhood' appears to be very congenial; and the schools provide transportation home for the chil- Tlmet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 14, 1957 dren, and We are very hopeful that it will work out." Kristin, 13, will be In eighth grade this fall. Janis - ,, who will be 9 in August, is a fourth-grader. ; About her social activities in the nation's capitol, Mrs. Hoegh is not certain. Although her husband has approximately the status of a cabinet member, Mrs. Hoegh has been given to understand they will not have comparable social oblige- tions. Mrs. Hoegh has been boning up on the "Official Washington" sections of etiquette books, lately. Fortunately, she finds the social season there does not open until fall, and she is not even expected to leave cards at the White House before that time. Friends In Washington "I understand there is an excellent protocol consultant available to us. if we should need someone like that," Mrs. Hoegh reports. "And luckily, we have friends in Washington." The friends include not only the Iowa delegation in Congress, but many of Hoegh s associates from his army days now settled along the Potomac. Some of them have already written welcoming notes. One of the things Mrs. Hoegh is looking forward to most, in the new situation, is more home life than the Hoeghs have enjoyed for some time. In the governor s mansion, of course, they had little privacy, and the demands on <« governor's evenings and weekends are never- ending. Since the family has returned to Chariton, Mr. Hoegh's law business has taken him out of town a lot, "I don't think he's been home half the time," Mrs. Hoegh says. "In the new job, he'll have to spend a few days each month in the Battle Creek offices, but they will be regularly scheduled. So will his other trips- "We'll know when we can plan to do something together." The new administrator, who was sworn in in Washington Friday morning, returned to Chariton last Friday night. The family will leave Chariton by automobile Thursday and spend a few days in Battle Creek before traveling to Washington. Mrs. Ann Roderick Visits in Grinneil * (Timet Herald >fow» Servled) DEDHAM — Ronald Roderick spent Sunday visiting his mother, Mrs. Ann Roderick, at St. Francis Hospital in Grinneil. where she .is visiting her sister, Sr. M.

''>•'*' : i Easier~to-Read Finance Reports Her Speciality By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK \m — WaU Street, famous for its bulls and bears, also has a lady ghost writer. She is Miss Julia A. Wilson, a onetime Southern belle with blue- gray eyes.who at 50 has become one of the nation's top specialists in writing financial literature. The titans of the financial world, expert in the art of investing money, sometimes find it difficult to express their facts and figures in the king's English. , In their hour of need they often turn to Mis* Wilson, a past master at writing corporate reports, company histories; yialej; brochures and manuals,, an<J stock prospect^ uses.' She has the knack of making, obscure : financial terms understandable to the public. • No Mystery "There's no mystery about it," she .said, smiling. "I simply use language, that even men can understand." Behind her present skill with words, however, lie as years of hard study of economics and business prose. She was moved also by a challenging remark once made by her father; "No subject Is dull'— you ar« dull for not finding something in teresting in it." Miss Wilson, daughter of -a Ten nesfiet) textile manufacturer, took up her unusual career after an unsuccessful . Marriage because, as she puts it crisply, "I didn't want alimony." ; After graduate study in economics at Columbia University, she became a securities analyst for)a Wall Street firm. Later she became a researcher for Time Magazine, then became a copy writer for an advertising firm specializing in travel accounts, i In 1944 she decided to specialize in investment writing, and became one of the first women to enter the field. Today her clients include some o£ the top investment firms, and she is currently, engaged in writing a definitive study for the National Assn. of Investment Companies. Rewrites Copy One reason.for the easy-to-read quality of her financial studies is the fact she usually writes them four times. * "I dictate the first draft." she said, "then go over it three more times before I am satisfied with it- Using her Upper East Side apartment as an office, she usually is at the desk in her study by 6:30 a.m., and she works right, through until 5 or 6 o'clock in the, afternoon. Many writers think 800 words a day is a fair output. Under deadline pressure Miss Wilson sometimes turns out 5 ,000. But she hasn't let work turn her into a dull girl. She likes to dance, go to the opera,, and recently learned to play the piano.
