Center of attraction In this family group naturally is Prince Charles Philip Arthur George of Edinburgh, being held by his proud mother, Princess Elizabeth. Queen Elizabeth Is smiling with pleasure In keeping with her new role of grandmother.

BccW the average American citizen, i masking his own on-the-spot investigation of tho goings-on ir the national capital. Here is his latest report to his wife, Trellis Mae: Pear Honey: Well, your old man Is beg to find his way around the great marble swamp. Today I learned how lo spol one of J. Edgar Hoover's boys. I managed to snap up a left-over Republican box lunch at a bargain, and I was eating it on a park bench when a young man carry- Ing a briefcase walked by with an Innocent air. "Looks pretty suspicious," I said to a fellow on the bench. "Bet he's on the way to pay off a bribe." The fellow just laughed. "You musl be a slranger," he said. "Thai's an FIJI man. You can always tell 'cm. They're the only onc-3 in town who still have lhe self-confidence lo carry a briefcase." After that I moseyed over to rail on our congressman. Did f tell you how to tell a congressman from a senator? The congressman Is the one with the hungry look- he's hungry for the senator's job There Is another difference. A congressman always asks, "Wha can I do for you?" But a senator just listens lo you and says. "Tha certainly is heart-warming. Yes sir, that Is real heart-warming.' And then he wanders away, fecl- Injt he has helped better your world. As I was waiting in the anteroom I heard our congressman say to his secretary: helping me. But rljtM row he'r'J busy explaining hli own 1941 re-j turn." . ';' Well, J showed him · couple of i deductions he didn't know ; about;·; and I never saw such fratilude in ; a man In public life. ·! "I got to do something for you," f he said. ' ; !Io w about letting' me.j tnko you lo i cocktail parly?" :· Advertise In the TIMKS--li paTl. "What, another constitucnl? What's this one want--smallpox? Got me my other jacket out of Ihc closet--the one with the patched elbows. T don't want him to sec me in this sport coat. You know how constituents always get the wrong Idea." Bui when I was ushered In he wrung my hand as eagerly as If I had had an oil well in it, and said: "I just want you to know that It Is only the slghl of a friendly face from home that makes Ihis whole job worth while." "Hullo," I said. He sat and brooded over that. "You said hello," he remarked worriedly. "Now, just what did you mean by that?" Well, Trellis Mac, that's Washington for you. No mailer whal you say lo a fellow here, he always suspects y o u . d l d n ' l mean all you say or else didn'l say all you mcanl. This Is the capital city of the hidden meaning. Our congressman was /retting over a mass of papers on his desk. "Been working on my income lax return," he said. "Taxes"! Taxcsl Taxes! I don't know how much longer f can afford to 'live In this country on the pittance the government pays me." When I asked why he didn'l have an expert from the Bureau of Internal Revenue go over it with him, he said. "I did have one of those fellows It didn't sound like much of a reward lo me, but .1 went. Pretty (lull. Thc buzz of gossip about the lady who arrived in a mink coat died away after it turned out she was the wife of an Iowa soybean magnate. The senators grouped togelbei and talked about how awful it vas lo be a congressman and have o explain your mlslakes to the voters every two years. And the congressman bunched up and be:an telling joko.i on lhe senators. Tho best was this oner A senator visiting the United Nations building In New York met a pretty girl employe. She worked for UNESCO, which Is an ilucatlonal, cultural and so forth ·realization in the U. N. "And where might you be from, my dear?" asked the senator gal- anlly. "UNESCO, sir," she replied. "UNESCO? Isn't that heart- wanning?" marveled the senator. "I just want to say that's a mighty fine little country, young lady, and it certainly did a big job In the last war." Well, so long. Trellis Mac. Tomorrow I'll write you about how nobody is anybody In Washington unless he owns a ghost arid an Indian. Your loving husband, Wilbur.
