CARE DURING HOLIDAY URGED Increased Travel Adds to Hazards, Says Safety Council. DES MOINES — The special dangers which lurk on streets and highways in the period around Christmas were called to the attention of Iowa, motorists and pedestrians in a statement issued by the Iowa State safety council. "With the approach of the holiday season a great portion of our Iowa people will be on the move, traveling over the highways to spend Christmas, New Year's or both, with loved ones or fri/ nds,'' j it was pointed out. "Add to this the possibility of snow, sleet, ice and fog and the increased traffic offers a fearful opportunity for increase in the harvest of motor vehicle injuries and deaths. "Let each driver pledge to himself to use extra care and diligence in traveling the highways during this season, in order that he may insure for himself a Merry Christmas and an opportunity to live and enjoy life in 1937. "The pedestrian on our streets is also urged to use more than ordinary care, that he, too, may enjoy a Merry Christmas with friends and loved ones, avoiding unnecessary risks and carefully watching traffic when crossing streets, using the intersections only for that purpose and crossing only with the traffic lights where they exist. "The Christmas season is a joyous season—let's keep it unmarred by death and injur3 r due to driving and walking faults. It can be done."

WASHINGTON, (IP)— The gridiron club's satirical review of the 1936 election and the general political scene, witnessed by four o: the presidential candidates, lef some red faces, but most of them sore grins in recollection of the lampooning. At the club's semi-annual dinner Monday night, President Soosevelt saw himself depicted as running for a ninth term in 1968 and predicting a balanced budget soon. A scene of ancient Rome showed him as "F. D. R., Imp.," while in the Ziegfeldian finale he was portrayed as a master showman. Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas, j the defeated republican candidate, ' witnessed a theatrical autopsy on the rigid form of the G. O. P., which disclosed an appendix "tied in Knox," a full dinner pail in the stomach, and a "ham fish bone" in the larynx. To Run in 1940. After these objects were removed, the G. O. P. arose and announced he would be able to run in 1940. Norman Thomas and Earl Browder, the socialist and communist candidates, were among the 400 guests o£ the organiztaion of Washington newspapermen. Both the president and Landon spoke "off the record." Landon, after a day in the capital during which he called at the white house and republican headquarters, left for his home early Tuesday. Highlights of the show in which club members took all the roles, included these skits: New democratic congressmen learned to say "yes, sir," with a promise that if they supported all his bills, Mr .Roosevelt would call "Siem by their first names. Al JD. SCrrtcher. To Wagnerian music, Al Smith was borne in on a stretcher. Restoration of his brown derby revived him, and he sang "He Turned the Tables on Me." At a meeting of the Prophets' union, Elisha related how he fed 100 men with 20 loaves, but Isaiah replied, "we now have a fellow named Harry Hopkins who feeds 20 men with 100 loaves." "James A. Farley couldn't qualify as a major prophet," Isaiah said, because all he did "was j count the names on the payroll." slaughter in Slaying at Des Moines. DES MOINES, (/P)—Harold Wheeler, 40, Des Moines automobile salesman, remained in jail after pleading innocent to a manslaughter indictment in connection with the slaying of James E. O'Brien, Jr. Wheeler failed to furnish the $5,000 bond fixed by District Judge John J. Halloran. He has been held since young O'Brien was killed at his home Dec. 7. James O'Brien senior said in testimony attached to the indictment, that his son apparently believed that Wheeler was delivering liquor to his mother. Mrs. O'Brien, the father said,' was a periodic inebriate. In a statement to police following his arrest, Wheeler admitted striking young O'Brien with his fist after the young man had followed him from the house into the street. He said that he went to the icuse at Mrs. O'Brien's invitation, o -sell her an automobile. He obtained whiskey for her, he said, after Mrs. O'Brien complained of 'feeling low,", and said that she 'needed a drink." Mrs. O'Brien was found in a tupor following her son's death. Although she appeared before the grand jury her testimony was not | attached to the indictment.

SANTA CKUZ, Cal., (UP)— When Janice Judah received a perfect bridge hand ol 13 spades, she bid a grand slam, was doubled but was too excited to redouble, and thus lost a corresponding number of points. FORMALLY AT EASE N O fashion is more typically American than the tuxedo. Created originally in this country, it is natural that American men should favor this truly American fashion. It was primarily intended as a substitute for the tailcoat under formal conditions at home or when men only are present. While we can report a growing use of tailcoats on the part of many men, particularly in the larger communities, the ease and informality of the dinner jacket assures it a permanent place in the wardrobe. The first gentleman at the left wears a turn down collar and black bat tie with his double breasted peak lapel dinner jacket, while at the right a more formal touch is given to the outfit by the use of a bold wing collar and a black butterfly tie. The jacket is a single- breasted shawl collar model. While the shawl collar is faced with satin, the peak lapel model carries a rib silk facing. (\ Either the black or midnight blue homburg or the collapsible silk opera hat is correct for wear with the dinner jacket. The opera hat is, of course, the correct ,hat for wear with tails. Dress gloves are favored In mocha or chamois and by preference carry definite stitching and buttoned wrists. A feather carnation or a- cornflower solves the winter problem of fresh boutonnieres. Of course, when obtainable, fresh flowers are more uesirable. This white scarf of crocheted silk provides protection for the immaculate collar and shirt Studs and links for wear with the dinner jacket may be of plain gold, smoked pearl or may even have a touch of subdued color. The key chain is a practical bit .of formal jewelry and the one shown has a new trick key link in the shape of a whip. When the tuxedo is worn for more formal purposes, the bold wing collar and starched bosom shirt are recommended. For less formal occasions, the pleated bosom shirt with turn down collar is acceptable. Socks may be silk or lisle, ribbed or fiat, with white or self clock or without, as long as they are always black. For evening wear, the black patent leather oxford, simple in line and unadorned, is the only correct shoe., With the single-breasted dinner jacket whether you wear a white pique, black ribbed silk or to- matr.h-the-suit fabric waistcoat is a matter of choice. ESQUIRE will answer all questions on men's fashions. Write MEN'S FASHION DEPARTMENT, THE MASON CITY GLOBI-GAZETTE and enclose a self-rtdremd stamped envelope for reply.
