'orksLive We.are indebted to Mrs. Harvey ' /."Phillips for a copy of an article published . -,';' '.in the press of the dny following the death '· -of George Washington December 14, 1799 · it age 68. It follows: ..,. "Saturdky. Jan. 4, 1800 :!.', J "George Washington "Departed this life on the 14th Dec!, iws ;}799, Age 68. v'ff- "Between' three and four o'clock the · sound of artillery from'a vessel in the !

The 'procession was formed U«v*nri moved on 'in the following order: [""^·Cavalry.' InfAntry, Card (all with arms' '.-reversed), ni'usfc, clergy. The general's """liorse with his saddle, holsters awl'pistols. Pallbearers Colonels Sims, Ramsay, Payne, poloncls Gilpin, Mnrstcller, Little, " on llther sfde of the coffin, ? -TheSuii now was setting.' Alas I The son f Glory was set forever. No--the name of Washington the American president and jeneral .wfll triumph over death! The unclouded brightness of his Glory will illuminate the future ages," * B -,.., Which led us to" the encyclopedia. What . nbout his death, anyway? : He took 'tiIs last illness while serving 5-his country. In 1798 the prospect of war ,wilh France.brought-.ahout his appolnt- t ment as commander-in-clitef of. the provl- . atonal army,'and, on December 12, 1799, Vic exposed himself on horseback for scv- ,, w «eral,hours to cold and snow, Returning . home exhausted, htwas attacked,late the »H next, day'with quint or acute laryngitis. . ; iMedicar attention wft. without' result,' but ' lie faced the end with characteristic seren- - ,·,,,, ity, pying, "I, die hard, but I am not i sfrafd to go." Later on he thanked those helping them for their attentions, but ' asked that they let him go off quietly. Ho died December 14 "without pain or . struggle," after giving instructions about f v his burial. · - The United States wont into mourning. -,. , When the news reached Europe," the Brit- ,lsh channel fleet and the armies of Nai-. s polcon paid tribute - to his memory; and · many of the political and Intellectual lead- · crs of the linie joined in according him * ' preeminent place among the heroes of history," . · · ·- . · . As the press remarked: '"The name of Washington the Anicriran president and ircneral will triumph over death I The unclouded )· Tightness of his Glory will 11, Itiminate the future afces." He died in 1799--today, in 1952, the greatness of the first American president is in no way diminished. Rather, the works of the truly great man have grown through the years lhat hhve elapsed. It was unusual that it WHS so easy -to see even at the time of his death what a remarkable man America had to start the iialion on its way. One thinks himself the master of others, and still remains a greater slave than they.--KouNsemi. THE WASHINGTON ' Merry-Go-Round ·T omiw KAMOII Lot Angelts--Notfi af an itinerant newsman: Washington's birthday: For almost two cen- turlfi frtt m»n throughout Ihe world hive been marching Into bittle to c h a m p i o n . t h e Ideas Gtorft Washington stood for and which were ncfatched on a piece.of piper called th« Declira- lloh of Independence. Ust July 4 the Madlton Capitol Times in Wisconsin and later the New Orleans Item circulated copies (if th« Declaration of Independence and the .Bill of Rights imong random groups of,people and asked them to sign'. The ({rest majority refuted--Indicating either fear of McCartbylsm and our time-honored right of free petition or else Ignorance with the basic principles of our founding fathers. To reclify this a great m a n y people have heen m a k i n g it their business to put copies of Ihe Declaration.of Independence In the school rooms of the nation, and AuEusl Diet/., a patriotic printer in Richmond, Va., the state that fathered the father of the ricclarFllon, has printed beautifully embodied' copies at. cost which have been distributed by the Sertoma Clubs. Yesterday In Richmond and today In WllllamsburR, Va., the Virginia State Printers Association is f u r t h e r promoting the time and drive lo put the cacrcd principles of the nation not only In every school room but In every rlty hill, every American Lc- tlon, VFW, AMVET and other service-club headnuartcrs, Communist tloaans have swept the world because we have not gone out to show the world our Declaration of Independence. We have a document which preaches not class warfare between men, but f a i t h in men. Communism can be stopped only by placing the great creed of the American Revolution alongside the false creeds of the Russian Revolution and letting the world choose between them. * * * .Jimmy Roosevelt--The elder son of the late FDR took a tough licking at the hands of California's master governor, Earl Warren, but he Isn't dead politically by any m a n n e r of means. ,!lnimy wis left with a huge campaign, debt-- «ome say about J90.000--and while he could have ducked out of It, he has been working faith- f u l l y to pay It off. lie has also been getting round the state and has become a respected lender even among some of .the Demos who stabbed him In the back when he ran for governor. Helen Oahagan Douglas, who. ran for the Senate, was also left with a large campaign debt; she had to sell her home to pay it. ' * * * Kefauver and Truman--Here in California, Senator Kefauver stands so high with the voters that some of Truman's friends have been quietly trying to pull him out ot the California warm- up. Officially, Truman Isn't entered In the California primary, but a delegation of his stanch supporters Is, and everyone in the state knows that its members are pledged to "the boss." Thus It becomes In effect a race between Kefauver and Truman. The Tennessee senator did such a good job of focusing the spotlight on crime in this rapidly growing and rac.'t-rlddcn stale t h a t a lot of grateful folks would vote for him--on. either Ucket. On the other hand, Kefauver's organization. In California Is put together with bent nails and ballng-wlre, while the Truman machine Is smooth as th* tldelands oil. So if Kefauver wins It'll bt a clear-cut victory for the people. * * * New California Democrat--One Democratic leader to keep your eye on In the Golden West Is .Edmund G. .(Pat) Brown, the new attorney. grneril and the only Democrat to win in the last election. Brown, though of the opposite political party. Is technically a member of Governor Warren's cabinet, Rets along well with him, and has taken a forthright stand In interpreting the law on the .ISO-acre limitation for land under reclamation. Congress-has decreed lhat when farmers get the benefit of Irrigation made possible by all the taxpayers, farms nslnq It cannot be of more than 160 acres.' This is in prevent huge ranches from taking over, as is the trend In California. "Pat" Brown has been firm In ruling against attempts to find loopholes in the federal law. * * * Real-estate lobby--The real-estate lobbyists who wine and din« some congressmen in ·Wash- ington have focused away from capital lobbies to Los Angeles, where they hope to stymie the Taft public housing act. After the L.A. City Council voted for a public homing project under the Taft act, cleared away many acres of slums and spent some $12,000,000, the real-entile lobby stepped in, applied th« heat, and managed to switch enough votes inside the City Council to get»« negative resolution. Courageous Mayor Fletcher Bowron Is bucking the council, and has referred the. snarl to (lie California Supreme Court. ' , Importance of the row is not merely Los Angeles, which has slums feemlng with Mexicans and Negroes, but the entire n a t i o n , plus Sen. Robert A. Taft--for 'three reasons. First the rcal-*state lobby Is making L.A. n test for Ihe nation. Second, they call the T n f l public Ic.uslng act "creeping Socialism," Third, since the author of the act is none other than the currently vigorous OOP candidate for president, the battle may reveal some of Tail's real views. Actually, on domestic policies, Tail Is probably farther lo the left than Eisenhower. He championed federal air! to education and a modified public-health bill, and figures that one of the best ways of Mck,lnR Communism Is to cllm They'll Dp It Every Time A Word to the Wise , · . .·.

Bill Knowland of California, who is considered pretty much unbeatable in the upcoming, November election, Is sensitive about only one thing. He has been such a vigorous champion of the Chinese Nationalist government lhat critics sometimes call him "Ihe senator from Formosa." . . . Running against him i.i crusading Dewey Anderson, Democrat, former counsel of the Senate Small Business Committee and close friend of Sen. Jim M u r r a y of Monliimi.

N n t u r a l l y one of the letters reached Knowlnnd, who accosted the Democratic senator from Montana on the Senate flour . . .

A leak in 'the reservoir, caused, il is thought, by tree roots, necessitated the draining of the pool and the placing of ccmcnl repairs. The Arkansas Advanccmenl Association made plans for sending a monthly bulletin to each high school in the slate, at its regular meeting last night at the Y Hut.

Twenty Year* A»o Today (Faycttcville Daily Democrat, February 22,1932) __· While Washington's birthday was not gen- erally observed as a holiday, here, numerous events commfimoraling the «first president's birth marked Ihe day. Banks were closed and a holiday was taken at the postofflce. Tree planting in observation of the Bi-Ccntennial also were features of the day.

XXXV CTELLA PELLETIER, with thi ° matchmaking drive of a latis fled wife, had said, when she heard that her husband had asket Peter to pay them a visit Thanksgiving night, "Then I'll invite Jennet to have dinner with us. Her mother's gone, she's alone, and I't like to see those two children gel together." And Jennet, hoping to encounter Peter there, had accepted with alacrity. As did everyone who fell within the warm circle of, the Pelletiers Jennet felt relaxed and at home with them on that family holiday. The boys, aged 12, 10 and eight, were scrubbed, untidy and garrulous. Their' lively faces which resembled but did not repeat each other were, Jennet thought,. the gayest table decorations ihe had seen for some time. The children made a grent fuss over the turkey for which only the 12-year-old ultimately had appetite, and Jennet remembered her own reluctance as a child to eat the bird who always came, after weeks of school stories, to seem more human than John Aldcn himself. Jennet's own appetite was lost to tho memory of her Initial meet- Ins with Peter--here, at this table, under this crystal wheel of light, facing this portion of scenic wall paper, genderlcss Idyl of willow and pond--and to the still live hope of his comlnf here tonight. In the welter of children's talk, her lapses of attention and her picking at her plate went unnoticed. After dlnntr, the boys, lured by Mlevlilon, disappeared Into the upper regleni of the house, and Jennet and Stella.and Walter sipped 'brandy In the- quiet of the,living room. Stella raited her great gentian eyes to her husband who, thu« cued, said, "I'd be glad to see you get out and get busy, Jennet, but at this particular time, I'm no sure the hospital is a good idea Peter Is In a little trouble right now. ..." "Trouble?" J e n n e t echoed, paling, , "Well, I'm trying to get him reinstated at the hospital. We're waiting for a federal clearance -- that Is, Peter has to be passed on as a good security risk. Some of his enemies, particularly Maxwell Cota, would be only too glad to throw a monkey-wrench Into things. In fact, Cota seems to have some ace up .his sleeve already -he hinted as much. That's why I feel-- In view of the-- er-- trouble last June, it might be better for him-- and for you too-- If you steered clear ot Angels until the situation U under control." · · · WHEN the chimes rang a few ** minutes later, Jennet's head swung to the sound. 'That must be Peter now," Stella said, without looking up from her needles. "Why don't you answer it, Jennet?" Jennet opened he front door. 'eter's eyes widened at the sight of her and then he grinned. "Looks Ike I've got more to be thankful for than 1 thought." She pulled him Inside, put her 'ace against his coat. "Peter, I tried to phone you. . . ." Ho lifted her face with his hand, )«nt to her mouth. * When, remembering the P«llt- ler at last, she pulled away from klsi, she was surprised to f««l cars under her lashes, They stayed the space of tlrit t took Peter to drink a highball, ut It neemtd a long time to Jenn**, the more so since Peter did not seem to be in a hurry to depart. They sat beside each other on ihe couch. "My plan," Walter wis saying, "is to present your clearance .and the grant to the Medical Executive Committee and to request your reinstatement. But I hope you're not going to be skittish about signing the bath, Peter. That's a must now at Angels. You're not going to bilk again on that?" "WALTER, you know how I feel about test oaths," Peter said. '1 think they stink. But," he reached for Jennet's hand, "There's too much at stake to balk at that now. Put it this way. When the oath first came up, I stood with the guys who said 'Why?' Now," he said, looking at Jennet, "I'rn a why-notter." "You don't have to sound to sheepish about .it," .Walter said. ''I'll tell you, Peter, maybe I' rationalize but to me«-this is no time for frontier attitudes. There aren't any more frontiers. It's no ime for absolute certainties. It'i a period of flux, of changing creeds and Ideologies, and in time of change, one makes compromises. One has to to fcet along, .We're caught between two 'American ways of thought.

Column ti HAL BOTLV New York-(/P)-Some years ago I started the pleasant custom of kissing all the girls '.n the office on my birthday. I djn't know where I got the idea, but it's a wonderful excuse f o r - a fine pastime. My boss, has neyer cared for the practice, . 'however, , .particularly since the "year he cam e .otit and caught me closing in on 'a winded secretary who had run five times a r o u n d - t h e water i^opjef. trying to get_away. - - :·': r : ' . ' ' ? " · . This week I w a s ' 4 1 - ' a n d ' t h e r e were no drilling chases around the water cooler. The girls were good sports enough to realize i I am not up to that sort of thing anymore. They came up to my desk one after the other, said "happj birthday," and gamely submitted - to. their a n n u a l niHiishment."One. of. the rewards of being 41;Tndtlced, was t h a t ' f o u r out of five pecked me on the cheek. Sample dialogue: First girl--"Oh, go on and kiss him. It's no worse than if Tie was your ov.'n grandfather." Second'"girl--"Well, I'm new, around here. If I got to.kiss old fossils to hold this job I'm underpaid." I looked out the window, and it was snowing--Just as it was the day of my birth. When I remarked on this to a friend, he said: "That isn't snow coming down, son--it's your second childhowl, 1 ' When I was 21, full 6J the timeless snobbery of the young, I was certain that people over 40 didn't really have any feelings left at all. They merely sad characters, pludding wistfully through the fog . of lost dreams. I was 40 I still felt pretty much the same way. Life hadn't looked so depressing since I lost my first true love in kindergarten.-. · Gradually, however, and some- ' what to my surprise, I found that being 40 wasn't altogether a crime ngainst nature. And I learned ther'e was even some compensations for " the disaster. At 41 you wake up in the morning with-no worse-a taste in your mouth'than at 17,-You just have to hack a little harder to clear your throat. At 41 you find yourself leading a slightly better life. It would be nice to credit this to t'.e slow growth of character, but the truth probably, that- you just have wearied o f - t h e old-treadmill of your small vices and dull dissipations. At 41 you begin to enjoy this new sense of virtue, because you realize that being virtuous is much more relaxing than being,,sinful. Succumbing to temptation 'after 40 sn't play--it's hard work, and hard work is -for the ^-oung. Dear Miss Dix: Mine is an office problem, i anva young man of 24, and there is a lady of 34 in our office who is married and has three children. She seems to go out of tier way to talk to mo and tell me I'm cute. She has a younger sister, whom I have never met, but whose picture I have seen. She is a nice-looking girl and I would like to meet her. I am wondering if this lady is lust kidding pass the lime, or if perhaps she is trying to arrange a meeting between her sister and me. People in (lie office are beginning to talk about the amount of time she spends talking .0 me, and I am uncertain how to read. Martin L. Answer: The lady sounds like bad medicine to me and I advise rou to avoid her as much as possible. If she would like you to meet her sister, it would be very easy -to invite you to her house iome evening. If you and the, lady 'continue to ipeitd so much time talking at lusiness, be assured office gossip ivill grow to unpleasant propor- ions. Dear.SMiss Dix:. Several .*coks ago I met a very nice'boy'from a prominent family. We had about hree dates, and then he brought ne home from a date about an lour later than I was supposed o be in. The delay couldn't be iclped. My brother, who is four ·ears older than 1 am, beat me on my legs u n t i l I couldn't walk on hem. He told me if 1 ever went vith this boy again he would- do it again. I am 18, this boy is 22, and my mother likes him, bvit to jppease her precious son she von't allow me lo go out with lim. She will, however, Jet me :orrespond with him. He's in ervice. We love each other very much; in fact, he has asked me to marry him, but my family t h r e a t - ens to disown me if I do--all because of my brother's objections, think I'm old enough to live my own life. C. J.S. -Answer: If your brother's dislike of your boy friend is purely a personal matter, your family is very u n f a i r to listen to him. Brother, in fact, sounds like a psychiatrist case. No brother has the right to usury'a parent's privilege of punishment--even if justified. I do think your acquaintance has been of too short a duration for an early wedding, but if you continue the friendship for another year and still feel the same way about your boy friend, you would be justified in marrying him against your brother's wishes. Be sure, however, that your fam- ily's' objections are not based on serious faults in the young man. Dear Dorothy Dix: I am 14 anci Interested in a.- boy three years older. He has never asked me to go out with -him, but has kissed me several times. Our Senior Ball is coming up and I am afraid to ask my mother's permission to go out with this boy. Florence B. Answer: If your would-be boy friend is interested only in kissing and not in taking you out. he's not a very reliable person for an escort. * Describe the situation to your mother, as you did to me, and abide by her advice. There's no reason for you to be afraid of her. Even though mom's decisions may not always be in accordance with your desires, remember she has future at heart, arid is. only acting'; as she.' thinks -right for you. So much trouble would be avoided if girls only had more confidence in their mothers--and mothers put a little ' more effort into winning it. Dear Miss Dix: The woman I love is hurt by remarks I have made, such as asking her why she makes no attempt to interest herself in the things I do pertain- 'ng to business, etc. She claims if I tell her her faults now, whal- will 1 do later,, etc. Am I wrong to presume that a wife should be willing to share her husbands's problems? A r t h u r G. Answer: Your fiancee is a re- irarkably thin-skinned woman; marriage lo her will be a continuous round of soothed hurl feelings. You are perfectly right in wanting, as a wife, a woman* who will be a helpmate and companion. What she wants is to be a pampered darling with not a care in the world.' Better f i n d a girl w i t h a little more backbone. You ininy think you're broken hearted now, bill it's much better to b« hurt before .marriage than after. · Presidential Parade Antwtr to Pr«viou» Puiile' HORIZONTAL I Civil War President 8 Sixtfl U.
