'Mystery* Author Now Press Agent Por Illinois By WW CBAMBI4BLAW TetBftmpti Cov .-A "whodunit" writer with a long record o! mys* tery books, novelettes and short stories, some of it outright fiction and some based on fact, has turned his hand fo doing a statewide public relations job dealing only with hard cold facts. He is Carl Hodges, Springfield, and he's getting as much of a bang out of being a government press agent as he hopes some of his readers get out of his detective stories. Hodges Is superintendent of the State Division of Departmental Reports, a rather hlghsoundlng name for the job of press agent to Gov. William G. Stratton and for all code departments, commissions, boards and agencies under the Governor. This Is not to be taken to mean that he outranks W. W. (Smokey) Downey, Springfield ex- newsman and chief administrative aide to Stratton, but it does mean all publicity has to clear through Hodges. Hodges supervises all radio broadcasts such as 'the monthly "Know Your Illinois" feature program on which the Governor, some state officer or code department officials talk. He also supervises a weekly conservation radio program, a photographic division which takes care of necessary picture for the code departments and the state fair, and the printing of all important messages of the Governor. But there's one thing he doesn't have to worry about. Stratton, he says, writes his own speeches. But Hodges sees that they are distributed. In addition to items already mentioned, here are some of the things Hodges has to take the headaches for: The making and distribution of films such as those dealing with "Lincoln in Illinois," which was seen by more than 200,000 persons in Illinois and other states last year; the processing of information about the state's playgrounds, the state parks, the state fair and conservation, including a new state scenic map, 500,000 of which are now being printed.
