In-the first place, she's determined to achieve once more tho slim, youthfully-firm proportions she had last September tit the end of a season of active :;porls. Secondly, .she knows perfectly well that bathing suits .skating outfits and the average evcn- i»« gowns jtijii aren't kind to the Ihickish waistline.

The code now is before an ^industry committee. When this commft'tee finishes its study, the code goes before the industry. A good guess is that ly spring it will be in operation. The things which Dr. Sturges and nis group hope to set right range from the two free-and-easy mar/.icr in which a whisky salesman may offer "samples" to the bribery of bartenders and liquor store clerks to push one brand over another; from excessive advertising to dollar-day sales; from high-pressure political lobbying to the granting of rebates. Part of the program which Dr. Sturges is putting into operation is the formation of cit'/e'ns' committees in the different stales. These have been organized in Connecticut, Maryland and Michigan, and one will probably appear soon in Pennsylvania. , The Distilled Spirits Institute retains no control over a committee, after it has been organized; the committee is its own boss, and undertakes to check on the records of individuals and vfirms in the liquor business, to work with the state enforcement officers— The announcement was cheered by optimistic fans who started buying tickets weeks ago without any idea of the New Year's Day contenders.

Tulane has a claim, with Tennessee and Georgia Tech lo Ihe Soulhwestern Conference leadership and ended its year with eight victories, no losses and i' mid-season 14-14 tie with North Carolina. DALLAS, Texas — A committee of Dallas bank presidents, finding football teams harder to deal with than hard-headed investors, announced Tuesday night that they were looking for two new teams to play in the Dallas Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day. The cornmiteo announced that it had withdrawn its invitation to Tennessee and Texas A and M College to play for the "national champion-ship." Tennessee Tuesday asked for more time to consider the bid, and the Ag- gies fearing thai the Volunteers were wavering, gave their nod to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. The new or Winter Sports Association announced that 'the Aggies would meet Tulane. The Dallas game was placed back in the hands of J. Curtis Sanford, wealthy oil man who promoted Ihe last three Cotton Bowl games. "We want to extend our best wishes to both teams, and hope both win their bowl games, bul we can wait no longer for an answer," Sanford said. He declined to discuss other possible teams for the Cotton Bowl contest. The bankers, with a handful of. wealthy oil men, formed the new Cotlon Bowl Alhlelic Association wilh dreams of pulling Ihe Dallas saucer at Ihe top of the list of New Year's Day games. They underwrote a guarantee ol $170,000 for the participants, $85,000 lor each team, and invited A and and Tennessee.

Dean Kyle took the matter up wtih the athletic council in a closed session, and then announced that the next news about the Sugar Bowl bid would come from New Orleans.

A scarcity of mutlon on Ihe main cily markets sent Swiss army buyers into the Schwyz hills where they purchased 3,000 of 6,000 sheep belonging to peasants on the cantonal poor lists.
