    So This Is New York .
Then to • strange phenomenon
here. It is a Republican Roosevelt
At least, such hat been strange
since the days of the vigorous T.
R. Bootevelt who was bora and
brad in New York. But John, the
son of Franklin, being a Republican
is something hard for a lot of
Democrats roundabout to figure
out He is a successful young I
business man with a smile much
like that of his father, and he
plunks for the Republicans too.
Only' thing of late which puzzles
both parties, however, is his recent
trip to the state legislature
where he sold the law-makers on
the idea of a multi-million-dollar
indoor race track for this city—
an idea more in keeping with some
of his brothers than in the tradition
of his famous forefathers.
Lunching at the Lambs with
Chet Shaw, former magazine executive,
now vice president of
Health News Institute, I looked
for the women who have recently
been admitted to this erstwhile
male sanctuary, but saw none. Apparently
they invade the picturesque
theatrical club mostly at
night. Chet and I discussed cabbages
and kings and drugs and
pharmaceuticals, and he recalled
that one of the new drugs, terramycin,
was found only after 100,000
samples of soil from different
places were tested for it—and finally
one was happily found containing
the helpful medicine
A revolution in ticket-selling is
taking place at the Pennsylvania
Railroad Station and the press was
invited to aee it. Over a big center
section of the 7 "A-acre building, a
new, shiny secondary structure has
been built, and under this umbrella-like
canopy are the new facilities.
Counters, neon signs and
television sets spread out in a
{urinating arrangement. Here is
the newest in ticket-selling hooked
up by the world'* largest cloeedcireuit
of television, 100 Mts in
all. As we were shown through the
installation, just before It opened,
it was demonstrated that a passenger
can walk op to a window, ask
for a ticket to some place, be
shown the train vacancies on the
nearby televiaion set—flashed from
the diagrams in the rear section
—be assigned the space, pay for
it and walk away In less than two
minutes—or about a fourth of the
time it required under the old
method. Similiar time-saving is reflected
here in telephone requests,
and big companies can now receive
reservations on telegraph machines
in their own offices. As this column
has mentioned before, it's
high time that the railroads catch
up with other kinds of transportation
in their ways of dealing with
the public Here is a long step
The woman sat down in a local
dentist's chair and took from her
wedding finger a ring of heavy
gold, telling the dentist she would
like that gold be used to fill her
teeth . He shook his head, asked if
he couldn't use his regular gold.
"No," she replied. "You see I
promised my first husband before
his death that I'd always wear his
wedding ring. Next week, I'm getting
married again, and the man
has made me promise I'll only
wear his ring after the ceremony.This
is the only way I can keep
my promise to both of them."
Apparently newspaper advertisements
can do anything. In a local
paper, a classified ad asked for
girls for a chorus line to dsnce
in a Las Vegas, Nevada nightclub
this coming summer. "Must have
good figures, faces and be able to
dog a little. Only women with
Phi). rtagraa* Deed apply. Will
be known ai the HI Phi Eta*." I
cheeked and found that the man
who placed the ad wa« getting re
»ulU. OirU with Ph.O.'i were applying.
Thoae with only maater'a
degree* were turned away. And
the girla will make from 3-000 dollar*
a week—mora than their degree*
would pay them elsewhere.
