Washlnton, D. C., December 21
—Rivalled in Intensity only by the
brilliance of its own social season,
the Nation's Capitol is now nightly
bathed in a lavish display of
floodlighting that gives newcom
ers a vague suspicion that some
how the Christmas Holiday, like
so many old-fashioned institut
ions, has gone slightly Hollywood.
Visitors admire the shiny new
Government buildings by night
and then, by day, if not suffering
from klieg eyes, stroll along Penn
sylvania Avenue to mingle with
the throngs of happy shoppers.
Night-Lights Again
H The grave bombing of the
United States gunboat, Panay, and
the sinking of three Standard Oil
Tankers, with consequent loss of
nearly a score of lives, by the Jap
anese during the Nank ! n* battle
last week, Is still keeping the
night-lights burning in Foreign
Department offices. The incident
brings back vivid memories of
1915-16 to veteran reporters. Sent
iment on the situation is divided.
Some say the United States should
withdraw from China and not risk
further "incidents." Foremost a
mong advocates of withdrawal are
Senators McCarran of Nevada,
Shipstead of Minnesota. Senator
Borah opposes hasty action.
Meanwhile, a variety of gossip
is making the rounds in the wake
of recent changes in the London
and Berlin embassies. After the
announcement that Joseph P.
Kennedy would succeed Robert W.
Bingham at the Court of St.
James's, and that Hugh R. Wilson
would replace William E. Dodd at
Berlin, speculation has been rife
as to the real story behind the
In the case of the Wilson ap
pointment, explanation fs simple.
Dodd was disliked by the Nazis.
However, the appointment of
Kennedy to the London post, most
important ambassadorial position,
has no such simple background.
Kennedy, Business Go-Between
Kennedy's popularity with busi
ness is matched by his rapidly in
, creasing influence with the Pres
ident. As intimate as Harry Hop
s] kins or Thomas ('the Cork') Cor
x coran, some say Kennedy, acting
in the role of mediator between
Roosevelt and the rank and file
of business men, was largely res
ponsible for the present peace
overtures to industry and finance.
Thus, if he remained here, Ken
nedy would be counted on to go
far in New Deal circles.
That the President actel wise
ly in appointing Kennedy to the
foreign post is not to be question
ed. But the evident speed with
which his name was suggested
and approved by the inner circle
casts suspicion on the deeper mot
ives of the President's advisors
i Badness Good Copy
Apropos of the recent "truce"
between business and the New
Deal is the growing sentiment In
Washington for rapid action on
the problem of relieving business.
Repercussions are still being felt
from the convention of the Nat
ional Association of Manufactur
ers at New York's swanky Wal
Ordinarily the NAM meet would
get only routine handling in the
news columns but this year, with
stocks off 30 to 40 per cent and
the New York Times, Index down'
almost 40 points, editors guessed,
rightly that the "man on the
street" would be interested in
what Business, with a capitol B,
thought about the situation.
Lammont du Pont pleaded for
stabilization of the laws that con
trol Industry and received a mild
two column head, inside, in most
sheets. Walter J. Kohler, whose
"ideal village" of Kohler, Wiscon
sin, has won him fame as a for
ward-looking employer but who
experieced a bad siege of labor
trouble in 1936, raoped the Gov
ernment's labor policy and man
aged to crash Page Two of New
York's liberal Daily News.
Weir Hits Page One
But when Earnest T. Weir,
Chairman of the Board of Nation
al Steel, who with Tom Girdler of
Republic led the fiarht of Little
Steel against the Clb. let loose a
volley against the Perkins Labor
Policy, he flashed across Page One
of, every metropolitan daily.
Weir blamed labor strikes for a
wa«e. profit and product loss of
$5,000,000,000 this year. He con
demned strikes as a wasteful and
unsatisfactory method of settling
labor disputes. He demanded that
Washinton establish a clear-cut
and fair labor policy. '
Critics were ouick to retort that
Weir had formerly decried govern
ment "Interference" -In matters
affecting emnloyer employee re

One of the worst aftermaths of
the NAM convention was the an
nounced investigation bv the La-
Follette srroup to see whether or
not member* who voiced pious -
sentiments In favor of imoroveed k
working conditions were treating "
their workers according to law.
This, plus the now memorable
"Fascist" speech of Secretary Ick
les, has done much to make busi
ness men to wonder If they were
ever really out of the New Deal
doghouse at all.
Will It Be Aiken?
When Vermont's Governor,
George D. Aiken, found himself
being boomed as a possible 1940
GOP Presidential candidate he
modestly commented "he didnt
know what he'd done to deserve
it." The Aiken incident came al
most simultaneously with the an
nouncement by ex-Governor Alf
M. Landon that he would not con
sider running again If he should
"happen" to be re-nominated.
Governor Aiken, who slightly
resembles Landon, is a tall, wrink
led, grey-haired New Englander
whose manner and bearing is re
mindful of Calvin Coolidge,
though less restrained. He is com
paratively young, and has a flair
for being both progressive and
practical. His call for a party
"purge" of reactionary elements
and for a constructive program
in step with the nation's problems
should go far to attract younger
voters back to the fold.

Bronchial Coughs
Need Creomulsion
Just a common cough, a chest
cold, or a bronchial irritation of to
day may lead to serious trouble to
morrow. They may be relieved now
with Creomulsion, an emulsified
Creosote that is pleasant to take.
Creomulsion is a medicinal com
bination designed to aid nature in
soothing and healing infected mu
cous membranes by allaying irrita
tion and inflammation and by
aiding in loosening and expelling
the germ-laden phlegm.
The Medical Profession has for
many years recognized the benefi
cial effect of Beechwood Creosote In
the treatment of coughs, chest colds,
and bronchial irritations. A special
process was worked out by a chemist,
for blending Creosote with other in
gredients and now In Creomulsion you
get a real dose of genuine Beechwood
Creosote which Is palatable and
even be taken frequently »m contin
uously by both adults and children.
Creomulsion is one preparation
that goes to the .very seat of the
trouble to help loosen and expel the
germ-laden phlegm. When coughs,
chest colds and bronchial troubles—
due to common colds—hang on, get
a bottle of Creomulsion from your
druggist, use it as directed and if
you are not satisfied with the relief
obtained, the druggist is authorized
to refund every cent of your money.
Creomulsion is one word—not two,
and it has no hyphen in it. Ask for
it plainly, see that the name on the
bottle is Creomulsion, and youH
get the genuine product and the re
lief that you want. (Adv.)
