WASHINGTON, D. C, June 8
Not since that August day, 1814,
when the White House was burned,
the capitol partly destroyed, the
congressional library wiped out
and the navy yard captured, has
Washington been so excited over
the arrival of the British as this
week with the visit of King George
and Queen Elizabeth. The town has
gone daffy; the plain citizens curi
ous to see their majesties ride by
in an auto provided with bullet
proof glass, and the socialites elated
or angry because they were or were
not invited to meet the royal per
sonages. A hotel window overlooking the
parade costs $75. A seat in a bus in
a parking lot costs $2.50. There isn't
a window on Pennsylvania avenue
that has not been rented for the past
week to "hold" it for the 10 minutes
required for the procession to pass.
President Roosevelt has given a
holiday to 118,000 government work
ers. Infantry, artillery, cavalry, ma
rines, sailors; tanks and airplanes
have been mobilized for the show.
Two thousand of the select are in
vited to eat strawberries and cream
with their majesties at the British
embassy. Without an invitation a
burglar couldn't break in.
As guest of the White House, Bert
and Bess, at a state banquet will
have regular chicken dinner. New
mattresses have been bought for
their beds. The King's uniforms and
plain clothes will be cleaned' and
tressed in the basement where, be
fore the invaders applied the match
in 1814, the White House family
cow was kept. In famed East Room,
Friday night, Mrs. Roosevelt will be
master of ceremonies for an enter
tainment consisting of hill-billy
singers, colored singers, Virginia
reel dancers nothing hi-falutin.'
Friday afternoon when the King
meets all the members of congress,
he will stand in the rotunda of the
capitol and face a painting of the
surrender of Cornwallis and an
other of the signing of the Declar
ation of Independence, while nearby
will be a bronze of Old Hickory
Jackson, who licked the British
troops at New Orleans when he did
not know the war had been declar
ed off weeks before. And an im
mense white marble head of Lin
coln, looking sadly at the American
lawmakers bowing to the King of
Great Britain and Emperor of India.
Chairman of the reception commit
tee has warned congressmen not to
wear white linen suits, flannels,
colored shirts or tan shoes.
By adding $50,000,000 to the war
department civil functions bill, the
congress is giving $1,963,250 of that
sum to Oregon and Washington for
flood control projects. This amount
is in addition to appropriations al
ready made for the two states. ,
Only a few Oregonians seem to
know that Japan is one of Oregon's
best customers. Figures just releas
ed from the U. S. customs office
show that Japan was the largest
purchaser of Oregon lumber and
wheat during the last year. The far
east also promises to become one of
the largest buyers of Oregon fruit
and canned vegetables if well laid
sales plans don't go awry. Oregon
and Washington producers of these
commodities have excellent oppor
tunity to capture this important
market, which in the near future
promises to buy many millions of
dollars of northwest products. The
Japanese government from all re
ports has a very friendly feeling
for the United States which was
materially strengthened by the re
cent trip of the U. S. Cruiser Astoria
to Japan conveying the ashes of the
late Japanese ambassador to the
United States, Hiroshi Saito.
If Mr. Roosevelt should be nom
inated for a third term, John N.
Garner will not be on the ticket
with him. Garner says he has been
vice president long enough. Cactus
Jack recently bought 33,000 acres of
recently bought 33,000 acres of
range and his Texas holdings are
now 50,000 acres. He is said to
have paid 25 cents an acre for
his latest purchase. Politicians say
that if Roosevelt is again nominated
his running mate will be Jim Far
ley, or someone Farley wants.
It is supposed to be a deep secret,
but President Roosevelt is to make
one cf his most important talks
(internationally), when he visits the
fair at San Francisco. Technicians
have received orders to install the
necessary paraphernalia to enable
the broadcast to be heard around
Members of the Oregon-Washing
ton delegations (each one voted for
the Townsend bill), are of the opin
ion that the Townsend clubs will
be active in the elections next year,
regardless of the amendments to
the social security act intended to
placate advocates of old-age assist
ance. House leaders, democratic and
republican, conspired to defeat the
bill by bringing it on the floor
under a gag rule which prohibited
any amendments. The 11th hour
appearance of the bill (different
from earlier proposals), was given
as an excuse for opposing it. Had
amendments been permitted, sev
eral of the more glaring defects
could have been remedied and a
satisfactory measure whipped into
shape which would have made it
difficudt for the die-hard opponents
to vote against the bill. About 40
members who were expected to give
it their support went against it.
More votes were cast on roll call
on this issue than on any other
proposal that has been before the
house during this congressional ses
sion. Had the bill passed it would
give those eligible approximately
$60 a month. The bill did not pro
vide for $200 a month.
