This is called "reduction to grade." The dullest man soon gets bored with this. The longest any prisoner has been able to stand it is 104 days. He has literally nothing to do but think to himself "the other guys are out in the sunshine playing baseball." Or, "the other guys will be listening to the prison radio program about now." "Under old-time systems of punishment 'in the hole on bread and water' a man soon grew numb, his perceptions became dull. He was really only lialf- conscious after the first couple of days," ., explains : Warden Moore. "Smoldering resentment and seething hatred kept his spirit up and enabled him to see Ihe period through. "Bui our men get three squares a day. They are still able to think and ponder. Instead of heroes to the other men, they just look foolish, having thrown away their privileges. And they just stay there, too, until they are ready to say 'uncle.' The men know that. They know when the man comes back to the general prison that he has knuckled under. He comes out sheepish and ashamed. Therefore he is no hero. "We try to make the men understand that through their own efforts they cnn actually progress within the institution. So far as we can observe thus far, we're actually getting results.

While the pension plan ws rolling in votes for its supporters the state .supreme court refused to bar the measure from the ballot next November. It rejected a i>eliUon of taxpyers challenging the technical propriety and constitutionality of the measure. Downey, claiming victory hours before McAdoo spoke, thanked 'his supporters, pledged himself to go along with the New Deal and repeated his promise to work for "adequate retirement life payments and pensions."

Brown, like Johnston, campaigned as a "100 per cent New Dealer," but is a long-time political enemy of the governor. Secretary of Commerce Roper, a South Carolinian, expressed belief that local issues were most important in the primary. Some administration adherents appeared more concerned over the vote tiling up in California for Sheridan Downey, advocate of a ?30-every- Thursday pension plan for the aged. McAdoo had criticized the pension plan and President Roosevelt had Sailed it "Utopian." The president, too, had urged renomination of McAdoo on his recent Western trip. Senator Logan (Dem., Ky.), an administration supporter, predicted that there would be aconcertcd effort in congress within the next two years for more liberal old age pensions. By George Ross Pretty Customer Gives Slick Cnbnrct Proprietor a Rough Deal NEW YORK—Sherman Billingsley of the Stork Club shame-facedly told the other night how he, reputedly a shrewd fellow, was nicked for ?50Q a while ago in which seemes to be the newest of the rackets. Mr. Billnigsley was occupying his usual corner one lively evening when i bubbly young lady came over with iier escort. She had been in the place before and the Stork's proprietor knew tier, but he had never seen her boy friend before then. Anyway, the ludy leaned over coyly and whispered into Sherman's ear. "I've been asking this cheap skate to loan me $500 all night," she said, 'and he won't do it. He has millions, too. Be a good fellow, Sherman, old dear, and give me the five hundred when I ask for it—loud enough for him to hear. It'll just show the stingy miseV." Mr. Billingsley was occupying his fellow, as the Stork habitues must have heard. He waited for the young woman to make her request audible to her escort. And from his wad of bills, Mr. B. peeled off the five hundred and handed it over, with blithe i'aith in the lady's good credit. He l»W6d away from there to-lay hello to some newcomers. And when ho returned— Yes, of course. The couple had disappeared. He hasn't seen this particular pair of customers since then and the young lady seems to have decided to move from her address rather suddenly. He wonders if the twain has struck it rich since. And they say that Mr. Billingsley is a slick article! Those Savants Philological note: A university professor in Manhattan has just claimed that the term, "jitterbug," comes from prohibition days and describes those dipsomaniacs who imbibed an illegal beverage known as "jitter-sauce." Feel better now? The C7 Steps Soul Abraham, the genial theatrical man, plans to revive his Sixty-Seven Step Club for the newspapermen this aeason. In the old days, the Sixty-Seven Step Club was as exclusive and convivial ns all get-out. Not a bar-room, nor a club-room, it came to be known as one, tiny-way, even though a mis- homer.' For (lie Sixty-Seven Step Club was Saul's private office and the reason for the label was a wearying 07-step climb lo reach it. Saul never had capitulated to elevators. And the members of the Fourth Estate didn't seem to mind the ascent. Because at the summit, Saul usually waited with a smile and so did a bottle of something or other. Come-down George Olson was in a reminiscent mood the oilier night while tales were being exchanged about the late Flo Zlegfeld. When Olson, the versatile bandmaster, was touring the vaudeville circuits many years ago, he struck up a friendship with Fannie Brico. And Fannie was so pleased with Olsen's music that she wired Ziegfield about him, adding that the young leader Would be willing to come to Now York and play a show for $1750 weekly. Ziegfield's wired response was: "He'll take $800 and like it." "Ziegfeld was wrong," says Olsen "I took $800 and loved it."

July marked a halt in the upwrd trend t noticeable since last November. While the 70,538 Employment Service applicants at the end of the month U a decrease of only 8.8 per cent compared with June, that record is representative of the general Nationwide improvement in employment conditions reported in the press." Of the above figures, 310 private placements .were made through the Employment Service office at Hope, according to G. T. Cross, manager.

The Communists Ihemselves have become "joiners." And it's practically impossible to join a respectable organization with assurance Communists won't take credit for everything it does. That's about all the "Un-American Committee" under Chairman Martin Dies of Texas has learned. Most members of organizations, especially those of liberal or labor character, were aware of it before.^ Dies would be doing a great service if he could reveal just who is a Communist and who isn't. But to date committee pol- cy has been to listen bug-eyed, to all volunteer witnesses who want to put the Communist .tag on persons and organizations they clon'l like, with or without evidence. Instead of demanding actual evidence of charges, Dies and other committee members have egged witnesses on to charges even more sensational than those they were making. Dies himself frequently has hastened to excuse conspicuous absences of corroborative evidence. No Shortage of Charges No such loosely handled investigation has been covered previously by this generation of Washington correspondents. The Dies committee started with six investigators and now las three. It lias no lawyer and no accountant. Its secretary, a nice young man named Stripling, has studied law while serving as a House doorkeeper. A mass of information about Communists has been gathered from Com- nunisl publications and statements. So committee member has shown a disposition to question Communist claims of influence and achievements. More may come later, but Dies' an- lounced expectations of revealing Soviet or Nazi shipments of gold to organizations in this country are at tills writing confined to statements! by Chairman Walter S. Steele uf the American Coalilion CommiUee on National Security. Steele said un unnamed A.

He is pictured above, as with General Walther von Brauchitsch,. extreme right, commander-in-chief of the Reich army he emerges after inspecting an earth-covered,, concrete fortification at Gross-Born. Later he startled Europe by a surprise visit to Kehl, on the French.border, where-he inspected Rhine defenses, where hundreds of thousands of men, many of the mconscripts, are working. His arrival took even the Kehl officials unawares, but they closed the International Bridge, leading to France, at once.

Steele claimed to represent almost as many groups—patriotic^-himself, including: Colonial Order of the Acorn, New York chapter; Old Glory Club of Flatbrush, Order of the Three Crusades, 109611192, Inc., and the Wheel of Progress. His assertion that Communists had spent $10,000,000 turned out to be an "estimate." About Sources of "Evidence" Unicjue was the committee's issuance of a tirade by Investigator Edward F. Sullivan who alleged Communism was rampant in the C. I. O. on the Pacific coast and among Hollywood movie stars. Sullivan credited his report to "evidence offered by the agricultural, industrial, and shipping interests on the Pacific coast." Only Jews, Sullivan said, were concerned by activities of the German-American Bund and Silver Shirts. Dies questioned John P. Frey, A, F. ol L. official, about 15 minutes as to how he knew men he called Communists really were Communists. Failing to get a direct answer, Dies hazarded that an organization such as the A. F. of L. doubtless had good information sources.
