Subway jam ? composed of
humans, hurry and heat ? is with
out doubt one of the wonders of
the world. We have had two here
recently, one when the train oper
ators struck and another when the
tracks were filled with water from
the Wanamaker fire. Caught in its
furious midst, one thinks not of
words to describe it, but of ways
to get out of it. Many expressions
come to mind such as the thun
dering herd, the milling inob. a
stamper? of hogs or cattle ? but
most of all it is simply too many
people in too small a space. Push
ing, squirming, shouting and curs
ing, with here and there some one
getting mashed into collapse, those
incarcerated underneath the
street's surface show the despera
tion of drowning, but once above
ground, they smile in forgetful
Oscar Hammerstein 11 is a senti
mental fellow, as are most of the
people on Broadway. The other
day he and his associate, Richard
Rogers, who have authored some
of the best musical shows in his
tory, talked to a group of us. and
you'd have thought they were fond
brothers instead of working part
ners. Each gave the other most of
the credit for such hits as
"Oklahoma," "South Pacific" and
"The King and I." Oscar is gener

This week I became a member
of the local Rotary club. The 1
members remind me of a bunch of
newspaper people, calling each 5
other by their first names, kid- ]
ding about loud-colored shirts or j
guys with spindly legs wearing
shbrts. Any member who breaks a
"rule" is promptly fined 25 cents. 1
I was fined for being such a new
member. but since the money goes
for charity, I gladly paid it. In
spite of the fact that I live next
door to where Sinclair Lewis once
did ? he who blasted Rotary
through his famous character.
Babbitt ? 1 like this outfit and
believe it is here to stay.
Two sets of time are observed in
Grand Central and Pennsylvania
stations, standard and daylight
saving. Trains from out of town
use the regular time, commuter
lines the daylight saving, the sta
tion clocks having two hours. Must
be confusing for heavy imbibers.
Anyway, doing some research on
the subject, I found that Benja
min Franklin first proposed day
light time in 1775, and that the
plan was first put into effect in
Europe just 40 years ago. About
half our nation is now on daylight
time, the other on standard. So,
we're really leading p double life.
It was only a few months ago
that Jerry Allison was a young art
student here, unknown except to
his immediate associates. He and
his wife lived in a trailer in the
suburbs and were anxiously await
ing their first child. Drawing in
spiration from his own situation,
Jerry entered a poster contest and
won first prize of $150 for a paint*

seems to be on the way to real
success. But don't forget those
many others who did not win the
prize ? some of them are doubt
less already on their way back to
the home town.
