|Not just a white supremacist. Ora's interior design hits the big time in "Chicagoland" department stores in 1952. I don't know, Ora. That looks like the kind of bed where miscegenation happens.|
|Per Wikipedia, the briefly-Carib Queen had a complement of 69, a displacement of 10,000t, and an operating speed of 16 knots. Too expensive, too big, and with propulsion problems. Mr. Gray Williams is being killed with kindness.|

- “Policies and Principles: Zigzags and Gasoline” The paper reports the New Leader reporting on a memorandum to the German Communist Party dictating that it press on to the world revolution in some way that might involve zigzagging on policy and something about gasoline. I’m not sure, because who wants to read the paper gasbagging about communist gasbagging?

Lady Astor has returned to America, and obligingly said many outrageous things to the press. Ralph McAlister Ingersoll, also a political controversialist, and also back in New York from his adventures, also said outrageous things to the press, mainly about how the strikes are the start of a good thing. Gertrude Stein has a play out, and Erich Maria Remarque now says that All Quiet on the Western Front was an anti-war novel. Dr. Robert Ley’s brain has been autopsied. He was apparently demented. A Hollywood party for Diana Barrymore went very, very badly. Nedenia Marjorie Hutton, “who will inherit a fraction of her mother’s General Foods fortune, wartime USOverseas entertainer and stepdaughter to Joseph E. (Mission to Moscow) Davies, onetime ambassador to Russia; has married StanleyRumbough, Jr. Colgate Soap heir and wartime Marine fighter pilot, in Manhattan. I wonder what Ambassador Davies’ former hosts think about that? Also rich and married are Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Henry and John Wayne. (Not to each other, but I would pay to see that!) I do not know about newspaperpeople Stanley Walker and Ruth Howell, so I am just going to go ahead and assume some scandalous secret. Or perhaps it is hearing about the divorce of a ballerina and a choreographer (Vera Zorina) and of a songwriter (Vincent Youmans) and a Ziegfield girl (Mildred Boots Youman).
Air Commodore West is resigning his post and retiring from the RAF to join Eagle-Lion film distributors. Group Captain Cunningham is joining de Havilland as chief test pilot. Aircooled Motors Corporation, makers of the Franklin engines, have been purchased by Republic Aviation for $1.5 million. Mr. Charles B. Baker, who has been with the Fairey Aviation Co., Ltd for “many years,” is resigning immediately for personal reasons, and is going to New Zealand, while Mrs. Marya Greenless has been appointed to the publicity section of the development manager’s office. Well. Those are two interesting pieces of information to put beside each other. And I suppose, given that New Zealand might deserve some kind of warning, they should be.
