British Feelings By CHARLES P ASHINGT ON July 24 CPA frequently ioccurs when an attempt is made to hush up the facts in connec tion with some event of capital public interest Lord Cornwallls s u r r e n der to General George Washington 150 years ago next Oct 19 bids fair to be all the more talked about on ac count of the Torktown ses quitennial commissions efforts to ignore it lest it prove painful to British sensibilities Just what authority was respon sible for the sugestion that the ac tual incident of the surrender be omitted from the pageant which the commission is arranging for the anniversary date of the occurrence is not altogether clear It originally was attributed by members of the commission itself to the state department which now disavows it since the idea a re production of the surrender with the surrender deleted from the pro gram was received with very little popular enthusiasm when the plan leaked out and was published in newspapers thruout the country COMEONE suggested it anyway O and a surrenderless surrender probably would have been staged but for the vigorous opposition of Congressman Sol Bloom of Nevj York in charge of the bicentennial celebration of the birth of George Washington Representative Bloom plans York town and many other pageants in al parts of the United States next wants no such precedent as the one proposed at the scene of what he describes as thevery climax of the revolution ary struggle Aside he says from the fact that it is absolutely essential to anything in the nature of a faithful representation of the career at the
