Washington U a nervous and Jittery place these days with winter running in and out so fast that the squirrels In the park hardly know whether to bury nuts, eat them or Just watch the ones that walk by. Part of the atmosphere of suspense Is due to wondering what Is Coins to come out of those notes which the President took with him when he sailed away from his trip and which he is still working on. When he left, men who usually know at least something of what the White House is thinking about, told us: "The President has closed his mind to any additional aid to Britain new. There will be no change in the present program. We will try to send more supplies but there won't be any change in the nature of the help that we've been supply- tics, scandal and disgrace out of the defense program, such as we had la the last war, if it is humanly possible to do it And second, if this is done, we may take the greatest step in our history toward cleaning up the rottenness of the patronage system that is the curse of FDH CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR SEND Greeting Cards nf Say, Joe, is there really Perhans I am over ontimictie. But here are the facts as I learned them. In the first place the civil service commission has recruited, examined and certified 240,000 workers Santa Claus? I don't know, Mary. But you'll remember he didnt stop here last year. Aid to Britain Then there was heated controversy concerning financial aid to Britain. After a meeting of depart- mental heads admittedly for the purpose of "exploring" the subject, Jesse Jones, federal loan administrator, said that he considered Britain "a good risk." Senator Johnson of California came right out and said he expected drive to repeal the Johnson act which forbids loans to defaulting nations, at the next session of congress. He said he would fight it These were some of the signs which seemed to point toward the consideration of new and drastic methods of helping John Bull But still the people who made their original predictions to the ef- fect that the President wasn't plan- Ding action, certainly none that might involve us in the war, held their ground. At this writing no one professes to know what form the notes in the President's portfolio will take. We can only wait for the inaugural address, the budget message and the report to congress on the state of the nation. When we know what these state papers contain it will be interesting to look back and see who was right, the people who, like Senator Johnson, said we are "edg ing into war" or those who believed that the President had set the Ship of state on a neutral course and then lashed the helm. Rearmament Story Ha Two Sides There are a lot of stories circulating about inefficiency in rearmament work. Some tell of men who are employed in industries where they are pitifully inexperienced. That's one side of the defense story that you hear a good deal about these days. But it isn't the only I heard the government's side. side of the defense hiring story the other day from Arthur Flcmming, civil service commissioa "The United States civil service commission," Mr. Flemming said to me, "is faced with the heaviest load in its history." Today the civil service commission is the "central civilian recruiting agency for the entire defense program," as Mr. Flemming described it and when I had finished my interview with him I took two of the most hopeful thoughts away with me that I have been able to nourish in the 25 years since I began watching the failures, faults and foibles, as well as the achievements of the Washington "side show." The first thought was this: we have a fair chance of keeping poli one of the three-memb- er IMPORTS During the first year following the outbreak of war in Europe, total imports into the United States increased because of a marked expansion in this country's purchases of raw material, according to a report, "War and Its Effect on United States Imports." Issued by the U. S. tariff commission. These raw materials originate- principally in Asia and to a lesser extent in Canada and Latin America. - AND Quality Air Brush Designs (Hand Punted) Oilettes Steel Die Engraved Cards Deluxe Box Assortments Designed and Styled by BVRGOYNE ing." Most of us who observed Mr. Roosevelt closely at his last conferences before he left thought we saw confirmation of this statement in the way he answered questions on the subject, the tone of his voice, his look, his gestures. Some of the people clamoring for more active participation in British efforts went so far as to say: "He's walked out on us." But hardly had the Tuscaloosa weighed anchor than things began to happen which made us wonder. There was the widely printed story that the United States was preparing to send American merchantmen with supplies right through the war aone to England. Another that American warships would act as convoys, at least part way. DiactUM Financial Distinction m See "Uour Printer at Once Maybe that's Santa knocking at the door now! You answer it, Joe.

"One of the outstanding examples of these men is John C Garand. Long before the national defense program got under way this man, one of the key figures in our defense, was working Inconspicuously in a drafting room in the armory in Springfield, Mass. Now his name is known around the world as the inventor of the Garand rifle." John C Garand, Mr. Flemming told me, was born in Canada and came to this country when he was 10 years old. When the World war broke out he enlisted in the artillery and was assigned to the bureau of standards in Washington to do ordnance work. After the war Garand took a civil service examination for draftsman and was sent to the armory in Springfield. He perfected a number of inventions and finally produced the Garand rifle.
