Of course, it's not really green; it has blue and gray in it— ft 'subtle blending—and it's a relief fr6m the conventionally colored brown, blue or gray suits you're wearing now. Chalk stripes are still in high favor. , The trend toward better clothing indefinite. Apparently, the idea that a man usually feels as well as he's dressed is gaining ground. Women, realizing their own economic interests are Involved in their husbands' appearances, are suggesting suits of better than run-of-the-mill materials. Bright Hues Favored -As to accessories, there seems to be a-decided preference for colored shirt- ings, stiff white collars and solid-color ties—during business hours at least.

In •*->•* Carl Crow is Hugo Lafayette Black. His story, until the storm broke over his appointment to the Supreme Court, follows the traditional patterns of the American success story. Fought Corporations He picked cotton, worked behind the counter in his father's general store, i attended the local grade schools. When I other boys were playing ball or start- j ing out on fishing trips, he stayed be- 'hind to sit in the courthouse at Ashland. The talk of lawyers fascinated him, and it was at this period that he ! decided to study law. Left an orphan, , he worked his way through the University of Alabama to a law degree in 1906. Five feet nine, with a keen look to his face, he returned to Ashland and jhung out his shingle. A few months I later fire destroyed his office—books, 'records and all. I He set out for Birmingham with $10 i in his pocket. Again he started a law • practice. Soon he had the reputation of being an anti-corporation lawyer, a man who championed the under- jdog in legal suits. He also represented jSome labor unions, which made up fi- jnancially for the cases he took on for nothing. Beat Underwood Machine In 1921 he married Josephine Foster of Birmingham.

He had to buck the powerful Underwood machine arrayed against him, and was given little chance to win. John H. Bankhead, his leading opponent for the Democrat nomination—tantamount to election—termed him "just another damage suit lawyer." Black won, making effective use of Bankhead's remarks. In this campaign, observers agree, he had the endorsement of the Ku Klux Klan.

He believes in government ownership of power projects, and in capitalism with the government as "policeman." "You can't get far with revolution," he holds. "The best system must always be worked out by evolutionary process." •During the 1928 Presidential campaign Black praised Al Smith's views on Muscle Shoals, but regretted the former New York governor's prohibition stand. Senator Heflin of Alabama bolted the party rather than support Smith, but Black gave his views in four words: "I am a Democrat." He took little part in the campaign. Criticized Voiding of AAA Achieving the reputation of a hard j worker, he found himself holding down senate posts that meant more work than glory—chairman of the education and labor committee, and the committee, and the committee on claims, fie bitterly attacked the Hoover administration for the 1932 eviction of the bonus army from the capital. It was "unjustified either in fact or law," he said. Although he voted i against 3.2 beer, he was for the sub- | mission of the repeal amendment to the states. A devoted supporter of President Roosevelt and his New Deal program, he criticized the Supreme Court, saying atter the AAA decision: "120,000,000 are ruled by five men." In 1933, his measure proposing a 30- hour work week, to aid employment, passed the senate, but got nowhere in the house. Sponsored Wage-Hour Bill He defended annulment of air contracts in February, 1934, as a "courage- out defiance of concentrated wealth." A year later he assailed the "$5,000,000 power lobby" in Washington, and as chairman of the senate committee investigating the utilities lobby became a nationally-known figure when he subpoenaed all telegrams sent or received by individuals or companies alleged to be lobbying. In January, 1937, he asked a curb on lower federal courts, offering a bill for prompt Supreme Court hearings in injunction applications seeking to prevent enforcement of federal statutes. He also sponsored, with the late William P. Connery, Jr., of Massachusetts, 5. wage-hour bill, which arroused bitter opposition in some sections of the South. After his appointment to the Supreme Court by President Roosevelt he told a friend: "Becoming a judge shouldn't be allowed to change a sane nan's life in any way—except when it .omes to irresponsible opinions." PROMISES or PERFORMANCE/ Before the voters become interested in a man's new platform, it is most important to view his past record and see if the old promises have been fulfilled ... It is often the case that the man who makes the most promises is the one who delivers the least. The present political campaign in which a successor to the late United States Senator Joe T. Robinson will be selected is probably the most important in the history of this state. The principles involved are as old as democracy and as precious as liberty. There can be no possible doubt and confusion regarding the issues in this campaign as they are so simple and clear that every honest man and woman in the state will be able to remember them long after the sound of new promises has died away.

"There in just one thing I'd like to I know," he said. "Is the senator for or against the bill?" i Black soon achieved a reputation for his learning and his wit. He also was considered radical.

Under Roosevelt, his resolution passed, after being amended to include air-mail subsidies. He became chairman of the committee. In June, 1930, while Hoover was still president.

Leningrad Takes Its Drama Very Seriously LENINGRAD.-;/?)—A member of the audience was so carried away by an espionage play in the Gorky House of Culture here that he shouted defiance from his seat to the actor in the role of a spy. The scene was the office of an official who was questioning a foreign spy before trial. "We have thousands of secret spies," the prisoner said. That was the cue for a sharp voice in the audience to shout: "We have millions of open spies and you can't escape us anywhere." Minister—"Now, Macpherson, why don't you fight against your longing for drink? When you are tempted, think of your wife at home." Macpherson (thoughtfully—"When the thirst is upon me I am absolutely devoid of fear." Good Gessing Wifey: "Here's a riddle: What makes my life so miserable?" Hubby: "You've tfftt me." Wifey: "Thats right,' The people of Arkansas have the right to select their public servants. Carl E. Bailey as chief executive of the state sought to deprive the people of this right. Carl E. Bailey cannot be trusted again to protect the rights of the people in the fact of his failure to abide by the fine words spoken in Hot Springs at the Democratic State Convention on September 19, 1936, when he said: "The governor, and none other, can protect the important rig lit of the people to fill vacancies in public, office, and as your governor I will zealously guard this right for you." Through Mr. Bailey's aides, Mr. June P. Wooten, Chairman of the Democratic State Committee, Mr. Beloit Taylor, Secretary of that body, and Mr, W. S. Atkins of Hope, a member of the state police commission, Governor Bailey threatened to bar Democratic voters from participation in future primary elections if these voters failed to support him. Governor Bailey resorted to a cheap piece of showmanship a few months ago when he sent members of his police force to Hot Springs where; they confiscated thousands of dollars worth of gambling paraphernalia and brought it to Little Rock and made a public spectacle with a bonfire near the state capitol. Governor Bailey has since made up politically with Leo P, McLaughlin, the recognized head of the Hot Springs ring, and today open gambling is being carried on in Hot Springs, unmolested by Bailey. 5. Mr, Bailey claims that he is a true Democrat. Why, then, did he not accede to the wishes of President Roosevelt in making an interim appointment to fill the seat of the late United States Senator Joe T. Robinson when Governor Bailey knew that good Democrats were needed in Washington at that time? 6. Governor Bailey was derelict in his duty because of his refusal to permit the people of Arkansas to vote with his name on the ticket in a Democratic primary election to name the party nominee to succeed United States Senator Joe T, Robinson. Maybe Governor Bailey believed the handwriting on the wall at his "Belshaz/ar feast" which presented him with the nomination and which was interpreted by the "Modern Daniel," Senator Richard R. Thompson who said : "I'd like to (jo to the Senate the worst wan and I coidd forget a lot of principles if I could go there. The yovernor wants to go. / don't believe the governor could (jet elected today if his name was placed on the ticket and one other stalwart Democrat was put up. He might net elected if enough entered the race but he couldn't against just one. The governor has more enemies than he has friends. Hut he's the governor and he's got a club. Wouldn't you use it ?" 1. In his initial speech of his campaign which was made over the radio, Governor Bailey branded all who disagreed with him as "carpet baggers, mugwumps, and tories" ... By a fair interpretation of his own statement G8'/< of the voters of Arkansas who voted against him for his nomination for governor are thus branded. 8. Governor Bailey has stated that the Democrats of Arkansas are too corrupt to conduct an honest primary election ... He does not deserve the support of any true Democrat in the face of this admission. 1. Congressman John E.
