SECOND CALVIN COOI.IDGF
In more ways than or.o. Hurry Tru
man is like Calvin Coolidge. He
coir.es from the same backwoods
origin. He seldom makes speeches
on the senate floor He is thrifty,
remembers the days when the drug
store paid him S3 a week.
But more than anything else Tru
man has the same brand of Coolidge
political luck. The lightning hit Cal
first during the Boston police strike,
later when the party bosses in the
smoke filled room at the Blackstone
hotel wanted a good composite vice
president to go with Harding.
The lightning struck Truman when
nis investigating committee hurtled
him to fame, later when the Demo
cratic bosses dining at the White
House decided that he was the com
promise candidate to replace Henry
That is the man who has assumed
the life insurance duties of vice pres
ident of the United States. He will
be worth watching.

C John Danaher of Connecticut, who
failed of reelection to the senate in

Republican Danaher to serve in the
interim, with Danaher also running

This is the before-and-after of how
a plain, garden-variety U. S. army
jeep was transformed into the "se
dan or jeep of the future," by men
of the Bth air force in England,
using only salvaged material from
crashed-up jeeps and junk piles. A
large number of the first-made jeeps
have already been offered for sale
to the public. Many servicemen
desire postwar jeeps.

Notes of an Innocent Bystander:
The Kadioafs: Fred Allen shelved
his regular onoo-n week program be- -
cause the rigorous routine taxed his .•
health. But during one week Allen j
guestarred on three different shows r
—and improved them all . . . The
new Danny Knye program is bound
to click. He rates a tip of the hat .
for avoiding the gag files and for i
trying a unique brand of microfun [
with original stuff. . . Henny Young- c
man's gagging is funnier than it has i
ever seemed before . . . The "Two ■
on a Clue" CHKession rates atten
tion. A welcome relief from the
usual afternoonsense. . . . Radio sta
tions may be fori ed to suspend the
round-the-clock (all night) recorded
programs—if skilled technicians are
drafted. It would save electricity,
say Gov't execs, fur both stations
The l\laira7iiirs: Mr. Juliet-
James F. Byrnes has turned out an
incisive blueprint via American
Magazine, which should serve as an
excellent guide for taking Congres
sional procedure out of its covered
wagon rut and converting it into a ■
legislative streamliner. This article
is a model of constructive criticism.
. . . Harper's contains a plague-hy
plague report of the Argentinazi
malady. ... In Vogue, Harriet Van 1
Home takes apart radio listening i
gullibies who write letters of condo- i
lence when a character in a soap
opera dies. DilV.eult to believe that
people with tin ir mentality can i
write. . . . \V. Davenport's "The i
President and the Press" in Collier's i
is a must for edit rialists, too. ...
The Page 121 cartoon in Esquire
shows two penguins looking at a de

Midtown Favorite: This one will
amaze his pals- i ■ t that Frank Far
rell would run fr m a fight, but none
of us ever saw him in one. . . . He
is better described as a mild guy.
. . . Slim, good-looking and we all
like him very much. ... A Life
artist (who drew a picture of Far
roll in action last year* told this
story last night. . . . Frank was pos
ing for the artist, nonchalantly (with
a gun over his kners), in one of the
South Pacific islands. . . . Suddenly
Frank (Cap't, pod'n me, sir) Farrell
of the Marines looked up and said:
"Look at that over there!" . . . The
artist looked across to the other side
of the atoll and saw nothing but
Jungle. . . . But Frank had spotted
a camouflaged Jap. . . . And fired
four times in rapid succession. . . .
Later when Frank and the artist
walked over—they found four very
dead Japs there. . . . Pretty good
shooting for an ex-Night Club editor.
The Intelligentsia: Walter Daven
port, associate ed. of Collier's, is Hy
ing with the Air Transport Command
in the Pacific for a 6 weeks' tour.
. . . Paul Hunter, publisher of Lib
erty, says Marshall Field was inter
ested "about a year and a half ago"
in the purchase of the weekly,
"but it never came to anything."
The recent rumors came from sta It
ers. . . . Perfect name for a critic:
Motion Picture Herald's London
movie embalmer is Peter Burnup.
. . . Bing Crosby's top songs for 1045
are expected to be his recordings of
Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguine"
and "Night and Day." . . . Philip
Wylie was unimpressed by an item
concerning a Marine's children who
were born on the same day in vari
ous years. Wylie was born on May
12, 1902. His late brother on the I
same day in 1904. and his late half
brother, Ted, on May 12, 1913.
