Hamilton's Job Is to Protect Consumers' Interests WASHINGTON. — (/p) — Dr. Walton H. Hamilton, the President's adviser on consumer problems, is Washington's new "mystery man." He has ben a special presidential advisar isnce June 30, but only since the arrival on Washington desks of aj pamphlet called "The Consumer." ed- J ited in his division, has the fickle Washintogn spotlight turned to him. It does so just as rumbles of discontent over the rising price of bread reach the capital. Commentators examine two facts and Wonder: the rising cost of living, and the direct, entre to the White House granted Hamilton whose particular worry is the rising cost of living. Staff Gathers Facts His program includes these objectives: inquires into prices where "trouble spots" keep the product out j of the consumers' reach; education of 1 the public to use quailty standards and to ask for grade labeling ;advice to people buying co-operatively; and expansion of consumers' councils. For some time Hamilton's staff of six economists has ben gathering facts [ about key industries; women's dresses, shoes, tires, autos, ice and papar. When the surveys are done the facts will be made available to manufacturers and the people who buy from ! them. i Hamilton believes in making facts public. He wonders, for instance, how many men who start factories to make women's dresses know the average life of such a plant is only three years. He grins over the industry doddering along with machines which are 30 years old on the average. He thinks they could sell more at lower prices if they had kept up-to-date. "Just An Adviser" But, he points out, he has no power to go in and say, "You're gathering moss. Junk it." He is just an adviser. But he believes in advice. "NRA, goodness knows made enough mistakes," he says, "but it did make business men think in larger terms; about whole industries instead of sin- :|gle plants." He grins at the cynical suggestion that facts may not force the inefficient manufacturer to change his routine. "You'd be surprised how many business men are intellectually curious enough to give us help," he says. "This week two of the largest organizations in the country offered us the free use of their books. We will study one set to find out the average wa^e-earner's credit and how he uses it."

He is on leave from Yale university now, and the smell of autumn on the air makes him a little homesick for New Haven where hi swife still maintains their home. The Hamitlons have three children, but it's Edward they grin about. He turned up his nose at the suggestion of college; and all this in the face of his father's degrees. Edward wants to build boats,- so he's building boats. Presidential Advisor Hamilton says there was nothing he could do about it, and that the boy may be right. Tokio L. S. Sanford, J. J.

He is, police charged, a burglar— and a good one because abnormal eyes enable him to see at night. Pupils of his eyes are greatly distended. Tests at police headquarters revealed he was able to read a newspaper in a room so gloomy is was difficult for an officer to find his hat. But Kiss found his abnormality no blessing. He was dazzled by day and it was hard for him to work at ordinary employment. So, he confessed, he became the ''cat-eyed" burglar who gave the police trouble until arrested while trying, with great trepidation, to cross a brightly lighted street.
