f October 16,1937 f. Babies Thrive in the Spanish War Madrid Mas More of Thorn in War Days Than in Normal Times BY CHARLES P. NUTtEIt MADRID Babies born nmid shell fire in Oils war torn capital thrive under the hectic conditions. Madrid has had more babies under a year old now than it did in normal times. The birth rate has declined somewhat, but the infant mortality rate has declined much more, due to wartime health nnd protection measures, officials explain. Fifty Births a Dny More than SO infants lire born here every day now. Since Die outbreak of the civil wnr July IS. !!).>;, 22,200 babies- haw been born, or nil average rate of 1600 monthly. The normal birthrate was 1,750 monthly. The decline i.s explained by (he emphasis put on evacuation of expectant mothers, thousands of whom are housed in nursing homes in less dangerous areas. But while infant mortality was 28 deaths in a thousand annually in prewar days, it has Ix-en reduced to 18 or 20 n thousand now. All children have been placet! under sti|>ervi.sion of the Institute of Child Carlo, with .stale feedings and regular medical attention. Dr Juan Jose Carvajal. director of this institute, estimates there arc GO.(Kit) such children in Madrid. ' Plans to Kxleml Cure The institute maintains 50 food centers and '12 clinics. Although a second long winter of reifiiced food mid no heal is inevidable Die doctor not only ex|X.'el.s lo eiire for the 60,000 but he also hoj.vs to extend care to children under ten. These children consume almost all the milk coming in the heseiyetl city. Only about :>0 per cent of die city's normal supply is being produced. Before the war Madrid drank 70,000 litres of milk daily. It has now been reduced to 1S.OOO litres. It i.s difficult to maintain balanced diets because of limited supplies nnd hick of v.iriely in (,'reen.sttiffs. Carva- jiil's institute gets first choice tin incoming food. Madrid's war babies face no prospect of clothing shortage because the stores are stocked high and children's dollies still sell for normal prices. Mars' two .satellites are very much nearer to that planet than our moon is to the earth, but they are of almost insignificant size in comparison to our moon.

Pivision St. Licensed Real Estaio Brokers By 1MAKIAN VOUNO NKA Srvlce Staff Correspondent NEW YORK.-There was a big mahogany piano in the Ca'lifurnia women's club rooms that Eleanor Lemaire was decorating. Since, to her mind, it struck out with the aesthetic banality of a .sore thumb, she painted the pinno ivory-color. In next to IM time, that .same piano wa.s pl.iyiiiK a quirk march, which was Miss Lemairc's accompaniment to the exit. Today Muss Lemaire is painting much bigger things than pianos, and designing much more than club rooms. Khe designs so many different things that she simply can't figure out a title to define her work, except that slit- devises anything the customer wanls, and she's the only woman in this field. She works in the small back room of a tastefully decorated skyscraper office. About her art- scores of models. Models of tiny bottle labels, an illuminated escalator, downs of interiors of houses and apartments, toys for children, vanity cases, pieces of furniture of every type imaginable from pianos lo book ends, gold fish bowls, show cases, book covers, the interior of The School for fashion Careers in Rockefeller Ha/a, and quanmic.s of other objects all made by Eleanor Lemaire. Travels by Express I'lancs The attractive, auburn-haired designer's customers have included the heads of huge department stores and owners of tiny country houses. The mere difficult the problem, tin; more anxious Miss Lemaire i.s to tackle it. She'll go anywhere—provided .she can let there on an express airplane. Her Justness, started in 1(131) when she ar- 'ived from California quite oblivious o existing conditions here right after he stock market crash, has assumed such gigantic proportions that she no onger can afford lo spend time on rains, buses, boats, or even airplanes which make local slops. "1 got my first designing job when wus 15," Miss Lemaire said, in a per- ectly modulated, soft voice which she lever raises no mutter how busy or resscd for time she happen* to be. "Mother belonged to a women's club ,i Bekeley, and the members wanted omcthing done to make the music oom attractive. 1 pleaded to be al- owed to try my hand at bringing cheer lo that gloomy room, and was Kir.nun 1 Lemaire given permission. {ioing To "Everything went a cd yellow and while ed honey-colored sli[ luors refmisbed Th I bi •d ; fine I p, Iraperie.s, oi sunnv , she styled packages, labels, ribbon. later was put in complete charge of the packaging department.

Ugly lines of a room, caused by windows, doors or bookcases in uneven heights, can be corrected by the simple expedient of the right colored border, painted on correctly. Color, too, can break a monotonous, too even effect, make rooms stem larger, smaller, brighter, darked. in effect, do practcally everything. Only a few weeks ago we made one vast room in a department store look like four little shops—simply by applying the right paint." Recently elected vice-president of the Fashion Group, Miss Lemaire now is a» invited lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the subject of modernists' interpretation and use of color iu design and decoration. a Regrettable Gestur e That is the title of an editorial by Donald Murray, editor, in the Jonesboro Daily Tribune yesterday. Jonesboro is Mrs. Caraway's home city. It is regrettable that Senator Hattie W. Caraway has permitted some of her friends to put her in an untenable position in the present campaign to select a colleague to work with her in Washington. Regardless of which man the people of Arkansas elect to the United States Senate, Mrs. Caraway will be the senior senator and will find it necessary to confer with her colleague frequently if they are to • work as a team for the best interest of Arkansas. Until last night, Mrs. Caraway's conduct in the present campaign had justified the confidence and approval that she had won from every one in Arkansas as the nation's first woman senator. When she told newspaper men upon lier return from Washington a few weeks ago that she expected to take no part in the present senatorial campaign, no one ever imagined she would turn directly on that statement and issue an endorsement for either man. People had learned to believe that when Senator Caraway went on record in public or issued a statement to the press, she was prepared to back up that statement. Her repeated public utterances that she expected to take no part in the race have added to the feeling that she was exerting every effort to assume a graceful and dignified place in the picture—a position which could not possibly have been criticized by Mr. Miller, Mr. Bailey or any of their friends—an attitude of leaving in the hands of the Arkansas electorate the privilege of choosing her colleague league and a spirit of willingness to co-operate with whomsever they might send to Washington to work with her. Had Mrs. Caraway wanted to endorse Mr. Miller for senator, she could have done so with complete grace, dignity and consistency a few weeks back. Sh,e,qould have come home and told folks that she did net expect to take any part in the race, but she might, if the necessity arose. She might have told her friends here who happened {to be supporting Governor Bailey that she did not care to say whether she would take, any part in the campaign, or that she would state her position later; or, best of all—she could have adhered to the policy that has won her more approval from Arkansas and the nation at large than any other one characteristic to her service to her state and country—she could have said nothing at all. Instead of that, she told several different newspaper men that she would not take any part in the race—a statement that arises now like Banquo's ghost to impugn the motives and the forces behind her belated endorsement of Congressman Miller. Mrs. Caraway, along with every other citizen of Arkansas, should be accorded the full privilege of supporting or voting for any political candidate she may feel deserves her support. But, her responsibilities and her reputation extend far beyond the limits of those of the ordinary citizen. The peculiar coincidence that Mrs. Caraway also was elected on a Democratic Committee nomination, the same method by which Mr. Bailey was nominated, makes her position all the more incongruous. The Miller forces have strained every resource to make committee nominations the big issue of the ' campaign. Her many loyal friends who also happen to be supporting Governor Bailey will deeply regret the fact that she has permitted her advisers to place her in her first ungraceful position during her brilliant career as a public office holder.
