Her first weeks as a senator from Arkanas has convinced Mrs. Hattle Caraway, only active woman senator in the nation's history, of this. She has had only one predecessor, the aged Mrs. Rebecca Lattlmer Felton, of Georgia, to whom a chivalrous southern governor gave a special one-day complimentary appointment back in 1922. "People often ask me," says Mrs. Caraway, "if ISm hot planning to become especially active for measures and appropriations In behalf of women and children. Well,. I'm not; there's no need to. "The men In the Senate are just M much interested in such welfare matters as a woman would be. And why not? 'They are fathers just like mothers are. I know in my own case, my husband worried just as much about our three boys as I did. It is likely, of course, .that a woman may be better informed on such matters, but I am sure' the men have the in* much aVheart." .;*»?'•*•*•••••- ••/ •Mrs. Caraway, seated at her desk ' in her private office under a huge | framed .picture of Woodrow Wilson, i expounded some more of her unusual j philosophy: Q. Why is it you have never made a speech in th eSenate? A. Because there is a lot of talk- Ing done there now, and I don't think need any more . . . but I'm not saying I'll never made a speech. Q. Have you ever made a speech before women's clubs, at poltlcal rallies or the like? A. I never made a speceh in my life . . . but I've done an awful lot of listening. Q. What do you think Is the duty of a woman in the Senate, A. To do just as a man would do; to represent the whole people of her state and not any particular group. Q. How does It feel to be a member of the Senate, ••••• A, Not very much different than I have felt fro the past 20 years; you see, I was here with Mr, Caraway throughout his 20 years in the Senate and the House. Q. Do you plan to work for any of your husband's pet mesaures—such as his anti-lobby bill, etc.? A. No, I will leave those matters to men wh oare better informed about them than I am. Modest and unassuming, Mrs. Caraway has sought to efface herself ever since she came here for her first sessions in December, following her appointment by Governor Parnell upon the death of her husband last fall. Apparently the tragic circumstances under which she inherited the office— Senator Caraway's death was sudden —have caused her to prefer the background. Day after day she has sat at her little flat-lopped desk In the Senate chamber—neighbors to such prominent figures on the Democratic side as J. Ham Lewis of Illinois and Joe Robinson of Arkansas—and has as yet never uttered a word except for votes. Usually she is seen writing on a note pad, Mrs. Caraway's first vote was cast in the election for president pro tern, cf the Senate, in which she voted for Senator Key Pittman of Nevada, as against Senator George H. Moses, Republican choice. The only major measure on which she has had a chance to vote thus far was the Hoover moratorium. She voted against it. Mrs. Caraway lives in her Maryland home on the outskirts of Washington with two of her three sons. They are: Paul, 26, who was graduated from West Point in 1929 and is now stationed in Washington and studying law at Georgetown University; and Bcbbie, 16, a senior in a local high school. She frequently gets ot see her other son, Forrest. 22, also a West Point graduate, as he is stationed at Fort Washington, Md., which is close by. Her day begins at 8 o'clock, when she leaves home with Peul end Bobbie and drops them off at school on her way to the capital. She spends an hour or sg in her office, attends Senate committee mtetUMffr—she i». a member of three compu'ttees—and then, wh$» toe Senate coayfnes *t noon, goes to the floor. She remains there Nation's First Woman Salon Mrs. Haitlc Caraway Mrs. Caraway Has Invitation to Speak Unemployed Ask Senator to Address Pittsburgh on Saturday PITTSBURGH, Pa. - (#) - United States Senator Hattle W.

Nelson Kelly, national committe.eman at Washington meetings recently, similarly was optimistic concerning the outlook for Roosevelt.

Hope School Suit For Debt Balance Is Filed Thursday Friendly Action Begun by Bar Association to Determine Law $17,200 IS AT STAKE Suit Must Be Won to Allow Scnodls to Finish the Year; Hope School District's test suit, the outcome of which will determine whether the city school* are to run through the balance of the 'school year or suspend at the close of the first semester January 30, was filed in Hempstead chancery court at Washington Thursday afternoon. The suit, which is entirely friendly, was filed by a committee of the Hempstead County Bar association, as taxpayers, with O. A. Graves defending the. school district. The bar association is seeking to enjoin the school district from Ul J creasing its floating indebtedness beyond $63,000, the estimated annual revenue of the district. Current floating indebtedness is $55,000, which, with $8,000 reserved for payment on the bonded debt, already puts the floating debt at the maximum figure. , It is the contention of .the school authorities, Mr. Graves said in a public address last week, that the school recodification law adopted by the ligr islature last year allows the district to increase its floating debt up to the maximum figure of such debt at th«. time of the passage of the act. Hope'* floating debt at that time was $80,200, As the debt has since been reduced to $55,000, the district hopes to obtain court permission., to expand for the additional $25,200, less $8,000 for bond retirement, a not'expansion .of $17,200, which It is believed would see the schools through the current year— the faculties havipg already volunteered to accept Half-pay during the spring semester. « By special agreement the case is to be advanced on the dockets, so that a decision by the supreme court may bo had possibly this month.
