Jonathan Worth Daniels (April 26, 1902 - November 6, 1981) was an American author, editor, and White House Press Secretary. Daniels' term serving as White House Press Secretary was the shortest since the inception of the position in 1937.[1] He held the position in 1945 under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman.[2] For most of his life, he worked at The News & Observer, and later founded The Island Packet.



Jonathan Worth Daniels attended Centennial School in Raleigh from 1908 to 1913. When his father, Josephus Daniels, became United States Secretary of the Navy in 1913, the family moved to Washington, D.C., where he studied at the John Eaton School from 1913 to 1915, and St. Albans School from 1915 to 1918. Daniels attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and graduated in 1921 with a B.A. He continued at UNC for graduate school, earning an M.A. in English in 1921. As a student in Chapel Hill, he edited The Daily Tar Heel and participated in the Carolina Playmakers.[1] Daniels passed the North Carolina bar exam despite failing out of Columbia University Law School, but never practiced law.[2]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
