TKree Southwest Conference Tilts Are Scheduled for This Saturday Unbeaten Texas Aggies Will Risk Record Before Homecoming Crowd at Fayetteville- Expected to Be Tough ceeded. to any Porkers extent. Texas no longer is just Jack Grain— its smashing 26-12 conquest of Rice proved it is a functioning unit. Peppered with replacements, 'mostly sophomores, the Christians will try the same fellows who gave them their first win of the season over Centenary last week. Junior Jack Odle, out a month with a dislocated thumb, may get back in at quarterback, but Halfbacks Logan Ware and Earle Clark arc still doubtful. Fullback Connie Sparks will 'ic at end again. Baylor has lost Milt Merka. its blocking backs, and may replace him with Sophomore Bigony. a tearing runner. Rice, some of its most able replacements crippled, will give the old college try against Fordhain in Gotham. Olie Cordill is the mainstay with Ernie Lain's passing a good threat against Easterners unaccustomed to a deluge of aerials. — ( t P)— Three Southwest Conference games, first full week-end of the season, carry a lot of answers lor the unbeaten, the so-so's and the downtrodden this Saturday. Tucked away in a valley of the Ozarks will be a game watched by the nation—unbeaten Texas A and M. vs. Arkansas, n stumbling giant that comes to life on its home soil. A sellout throng at Dallas will see the amazing University of Texas kids, Cowboy Jack Grain as their shepherd, pit Iheir running cunning against Southern Methodist, a fine team with a good record. Deep in Central Texas two fallen teajns, Texas Christian and Baylor, collide at Waco in the other conference game. For Texas Christian, last year's undefeated winner, it will be an effort at its first league win. Baylor has won one and lost one. In far away New York trw Rice Owls, dismal failure to this point, try to convince everyone they have a spr-rk left in n game with Fordham's Rams. Licked every time they have played on foreign ground this season. Arkansas rather disappointing in many critics, will be at top strength, for a change, in the Aggie game. Well aware that the big Aggie line is not vulnerable, the Porkers will send out their Kay Eakin to do a lot of pass flinging in an effort to break the I Cadets' string of six straight triumphs.

A month ago these rival Arguments sounded convincing. 7li«y still sound significant. Anyone would be a fool to say that nil the evidence points one way or the other. The important thing is that both sides have expressed their determination that the U. S. shall not be led into war. Even more important is the increasing evidence, found in polls of sentiment and in more casual manner, that the country is solidy committed —for the time being st any rate— against ever again mixing in a European war. Sentiment could change. Our own experiences run back far enough to leaders of the warring nations, to remember how our boyish enthusiasm for the Germans one year changed the next to pitiless hate. But another essential thing has happened. It is likely now that neither Germany nor England will be overwhelmingly dismayed, regardless of how the Congress finally shapes the bill. The month of debate, reported copiously overseasC at least among the doubtless demonstrated that a vote one way or the other isn't such surefire proof that we arc headed in the direction of any particular side. It is true that repeal is more likely to help the Allies than the Germans. That is not startling de\-elop- mcnt. Tiu's country has been slanted that way for at least three generations. The advantage of the long debate has been to let the country as well as the Senate, look at the thing from all angles. If the decision of Congress turns out had and we finally get into the mess, nobody can say he was trapped. scratch. Ranked fifth in the nation, the Ag- gies are favored.

By.MAJUAN YOUNG XEA Service Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — The political spotlight that plays with increasing bril. liance upon the finely enisled features of Thomas E. Dewey will not include his wife in its beams—not if she can help it! The obscurity which press and pub- | lie alike permitted her and her two j children in the earlier days when hci rackct-bustin' husband was making dangerous enemies, still suits her retiring nature. In fact, the No. I publicity-shy woman of the country is probably thi slender, brown^haired, dark-eyed Frances Eilen Dcwey who. in 1925, is "Eileen Hoyt," was a singer in a road company of George White's 'Scandal-, Today, she says, she wants to make a full-time career of being a \\ift. and mother.

A .short time later, both returned to New York—he to jittcnd Columbia LHW School and continue with his music teacher, and voice with Alr.s. Beth McLennan Hughes. At 18, with the proceeds from a concert and a railroad pass from her father in her pocket. Frances Hutt came to New York for an audition with Percy Rector Stephens.

A short tiiiie ;ifu>r her return to New York, .she got a singing parl in the show which John Hurry Anderson produced in connection with the opening o the Paramount Theater, later toured again for 20 weeks with the same production. From then until the lime of her marriage in 1928 to Dewey, by this time a successful young attorney who had decided that law rather than music was his forte, Frances Eileen Hutt earned a living with church and concert engagements. Since her marriage, Mrs. Dcwey has made no public appearances of any kind. If known she must be, she i.s determined simply to be known as the mother of Thomas and John and the wife of the one man who says ot her—"Frances has plenty of horse- sense." Dishes Cleaner, in a Power Washer Show Less Bacteria Than When They Are Washed by Hand By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEK AP Science Editor NEW YORK — Women who dislike dish-washing can now claim this practice should be barred as a health hazard. They can quote records from the- American Journal of Public Health. There Walter E. Ward and G. M. Dack of the University of Chicago report a comparsion of hand-washed and machine-washed household dishes. They point out that although much attention has been given to health hazards, such as bacteria in dish-washing in large establishments, little heed has been paid to the similar domestic problem. They tested two types of home dishwashing machines against hand-washing procedures. Results: by hand 2.1 bacteria on each plate after washing:; by machine, 11 Patronage Causes a War Over Here Some Amusing Stories of Troubles of Senators, Congressmen By PRESTON OROVEK WASHINGTON - The business of distributing congressional Patronage has been forced upon our attention. The conclusion is we would rnlher occupy a cottage between the Mugi- not and Siegfried lines than have to distribute postmastcrships. The nearest thing to u patronage heaven we liave discovered has been worked out in Arizona. Even there tacks lie hidden in the golden streets. H is for good reason that Senator Norris of Nebraska says that for every friend e»incd by giving him a job, 11 hundred disappointed applicants become active enemies. We need only go to Arizona for a sample. Senators Ashurst and llayden thought at one time it would be nice if they retained for themselves the job of tuim ing the foremen on the federal project on the upper Gila river. There were 200 such jobs. Surely, they thought, that would bo enough to go around. But the news got out that they were distributing the patronage. Promptly they were distributing the patronage. Promptly they were confronted with 1,200 Duplications. Correspondence piled high and delegations called at the senatorial offices. In desperation the senators framed a message for the project superintendent. The senators did not escape unscathed, however, because hundreds of potential foremen felt the senators had done badly by them in .surrendering them lo the mercies of a harcl-as-nails engineer. No Other Trouble Other than that, patronage flows smoothly in Arizona. The representative—there is only one in Arizona and his name is Murdock—names all the postmasters. As patronage goes that is fairly nice because in the range country of Arizona ihe post master sees all the neighbors at le.-ist once a week when they gallop in for the mail. The big jobs such as internal revenue collector, district attorney and United States marshal, go to the senators. Senator Haydcn remembers only one serious departure from that happy arrangement. While Haydcn was representative in the prc-Murdock days. Senator Ashurst said he would like to name the postmaster at Flagstaff and Hayden said. "Sure, go ahead." Promptly three candidates sprouted like dragon's teeth from the arid soil. All wore important friends of Senator Ashurst. After weeks of desperation. Ashurst came to Hayden's office in his usual philosophic mood and appealed for deliverance from hi.s friend Both have enjoyed telling the story since. The two Arizona senators go even farther. When they name the district attorney, for instance, he must pick his own subordinates. Naturally he selects friends of his friends. Divide the Spoils Senators Thomas and Lee of Oklahoma have worked out their patronage with reasonable success. Patronage can help in election years. The two STORIES IN STAMPS Versatile Jefferson Was Also a Violinist A DD music lo the many accomplishments of thai most versatile of American Presidents, Thomas Jefferson. While the author of the Declaration of Independence is well known to history as lawyer, statesman, educator, farmer, architect, and scientist, his musical ability has been generally overlooked. Much of his time ns a student at William and Mary College was devoted to the violin. While his personal tastes ran to classical numbers, he could turn out a jig or a quadrille for tavern dancers with equal skill. During his courtship of Martha Wales Skelton, Jefferson enjoyed playing his violin to her accompaniment, and after their marriage he continued this plcasnnt diversion. Many of Jeflcrson's well-thumbed music volumes arc preserved in his home at Monticello, Jefferson had a passion for gadgets. His indoor weather ob- scrvnlory with a weather vane on the ceiling, ingeniously connected to another on the roof, his huge clock, that told the days of the week as well as hours and minutes, and his indoor-outdoor barometers and thermometers arc still a source of wonder to Monticello visitors. Jefferson was also a scientific farmer. He imported many special breeds of livestock, experimented with various grains and other agricultural products that might be utilized in America. JcfTerson is shown on the U. S. 50-cent orange stamp above, i*« sued March 23, 1903. germs per plate. Cups sterilized before being washed picked up bacteria, again to the discredit of hand willing. The hand cleansed cups averaged 18 bacteria each against 7 for the machine washed. The machines used hotter rinse water than the hands, but the investigators concluded the hotter water was not the explanation of less germs. This they credited to the greater wash- in t! away action of rinsing in the machine. Oklahomans cooperate. Thomas got to name most of tin 1 belter jobs when he was up for election in l'.)38. Lcc gets Lhc lion's share now. He will he up for re-election in 1!MO. Ordinarily a representative names men only to jobs within his district. If he is a Republican, lie names nobody just now. In Oiiio where there arc Kcpublic-an representatives, Senator Domihcy becomes lhi> "arbitrator" in non-Democratic districts. Senator Taft is a Republican so he gets none of the gravy. Headers of the Congressional Record will rci:;,ll that patronage in West Virginia was not amicably distributed between Senator:, Holt and Nccly. Holt claimed Neely got all the pudding and he filled the Record with scathing inclictmcnt.s. The fright of it i.s members of congress can't dodge the trouble. Jobhun- ters make them choose— and then revile them for choosing tlic other man. I>o-> Angles (ids n LOS ANGLES -1/T)— In the faraway Belgian Congo there is now a village named Los Angles.

New Weapon in House Neutrality Vote By BRUCK CATTON NKA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON—The fine oratory let loose during debate over the neutrality bill probably helped the administration to get its measure' approved. But it always helps to have a little straight, old-fashioned political pressure, too, and when the measure got to the House of Representatives that pressure was not lacking. >•) -— Two things proved especially useful as sources of pressure: the 19-10 census, and the 1939 drouth. Census Provides Pressure Lever First, the census. The headquarters staff here iii Washington, under whose direction the census will be taken, i.s under civil service and there is no patronage to be had. But the tc'mporary staff, uncles which the field work will be done, is I not under civil service. It will con| sist of approximately 130,000 people. An administration which is about to BAD -•\ ; < -v\' BRING ON THE OTHER "BUM/ I iicinu out KiO.OOO new jobs—even if i they arc only temporary—can apply plenty of pressure to n congressman I who has to keep one eye on hi.s political I debts hack home. For the census, the nation has been divided into llV.i ureas which are further subdivided into n total of 560 districts. The district supervisors will ! choose Ihe 130,000 enumerators; and ', during the last couple of weeks it has i been made clear that ii congressman j who refused to go along with the administration on the neutrality matter was going to have a hard time exercising any voice in that selection. Drouth Adds its Wciffhl On top of that .there was the drouth. A short time ago a number of congrcss- 'men and senators formed an unofficial committee to seek immediate action for drouth relief. The .sum of ?;iO,000,OOfl was mentioned us being the least that would meet the situation, and it was | ii«reod that the ?50,UOO,QOO had to be forthcoming pretty speedily. the administration has 'ONTT LEAVE VET, FOLKS j THERE'S MORE COMING/ ' HC* SriWICC.
