FDR's election was daunting to Eleanor, who feared giving up her newly acquired independence. Marion and Nancy helped moved her personal belongings into the White House, as they had helped move her to the NY Governor's Mansion. They were frequent visitors, perhaps unaware of the frequency of visits from Eleanor's new friend, Lorena "Hick" Hickok, who had been an AP reporter assigned to cover the First Lady until within a few months Hick realized that her friendship prevented her objectivity and she resigned. Eleanor helped her get a job traveling to report to Harry Hopkins on conditions in the worst of the small towns of America. Eleanor begins her daily "My Day" syndicated column. Eleanor continued to make friends, especially Joe Lash, a young liberal who introduced Eleanor to the Youth Division of the National Democratic Committee. Marion and Nan increasingly were outside the White House circle
