Did he forget to phone his stock broker before giving the command to cast of from the yacht basin in Long Island Sound? Or did he forget to have his secretary cancel an appointment? He has only to lift the recicver off the hook aboard his buoyant castle and wait for the "Number. Please!" signal. For the telephone company has made great strides in servicing the craft that ply the waters just this side of the middle of Che Atlantic Ocean. They call it the coastal service and it is rendered locally for all boats within call of New York's harbros. The industrious tug puffing and churning about some great steamer, the rich man's sleek lined yacht, the traveler laboring in the heavy swell of the Banks—all these are within easy reach . of telephones ashore. And already the service has averted tragedy. Not so ) long ago. the coastal Khip-to-shore I ing trawler fatally stricken by storm j near Manhatan's port. Lines to Liners Much is heard of trans-Atlantic phoning and of the vast distance magically traversed by the ordinary telephone. But you would be surprised at the volume of calls that travel each day and night from ship to shore and shore to ship, through the main switchboards in New York. On this end of the continent, there are 22 ocean liners in the Atlantic service that are equipped with phone facilities between boat and land. On the Pacific, the telephone cover another network of ships. Calling a ship far at sea (or the other way around) is as simple a process for the caller as ringing up a yacht of a tug 30 miles out. Just pick up the living room phone ask for Long Distance, give the name of the passenger and the ship(call this one on the Atlantis) and hang up. Words in the Sky This is what happens in the in- terveing time between the moment you have placed your call and the moment you are conversing intimately with Jack or Jill . Long distance calls the Overseas Switchboard in New York, where a ship-to-shore operator plugs in o:; the New Jersey coas*. Here T. operator establishes a connection with shor wave radio station nearby . He ther signals the ship -to-shore oreratoi that the Atlantis is on the line and calls out ."Hello, Atlantis, I have a ticket" At the radio station these words piss through Vfccum tubes of terrific po .ver end are catapulted into the blue vault above the Atlantic. They have bce.i amplified millions ol times. In turning them inoo those words whijh wou'.i' rattle the window for miles around, were they sirllculy l-irnp;i back into speech. Well, finally, these impulses are picked up by the tiny wires that sway with the heaving of the ship and are converted back into words. The ships operator takes the call. He turns it over to your party. Your phone rings. "Hello! Jack!" . . . "Hello!" ... The entire procedure has consumed five minutes. c Housedrcss With Bcw-trim Fine for Street Use, Too 8313 ghhid fha Sionet lit Washington By Rodney Dutcher f White Man Tells Indians Tall Tale Major Edward Bowes is seen (above) telephoning from the grand salon of his luxurious yacht Edmar (below).

WASHINGTON—'the nx hatigs over many federal officials who owe their jobs to senators at odds with the New -.;at. In a few cases the ax has fallen, threats of extension of the Roosevelt "purge" to the patronage machines of anti-administration senators are being made openly. If the threats arc carried out—and they will be unless Mr. Roosevelt disregards advisers whom he lately has heeded—there will be bedlam in the senate in the next Two years. A president can appoint to new jobs or existing vacancies men whose loyalty is to him rather than to a senator. He can name new men to replace those whose four-year terms expire. He ev'.-n can seo to it that officials in the executive branch of government are fired outright. Distant Kiimhlings Most appointments to big patronage jabs must he confirmed by the senate. Senators who find political enemies appointed to key federal jobs in their states will fight like wildcats against confirmation. Unless Roosevelt can control the senate, confirmation fights are likely to tie up the next congress to an unprecedented cle- S'.'ce. F. D. R. might suffer a major disaster in the last half of his second term. Control of state delegations to the !MO Democratic convention is at stake. Senators controlling state machines 'unction at the convention like territorial barons. Roosevelt has no or- ;anization of his own and must build some kind of a contraption if he is to dominate. For convention purposes, machines are built oil federal patronage. Hence the advice from certain advisers that he must be ruthless in this matter of jobs. Roosevelt has been told, as he was .vhcn urged to enter certain Dcnio- :ratic primaries against hostile scn- itcrs. that he has nothing to lose by ighting hard, but that he will lose .he New Deal if he doesn't fight. | •Vhcther he believes this and whether le will fight as grimly as these ad- j risers urge remains to be seen. A' jobholder's, purge would be applied o machines of senators opposed by the ' rresident in 1938 primaries, whether .hey win or lose, as well as to those of Democratic senators—such as Burke, Byrd. Gerry, Holt. King, and Wheeler —whom he hopes to defeat in 1940. "The executive departments are mine," Roosevelt is reported to have raid once. "I have an independent power to hire and fire." Meanwhile, some change in administration patronage policy has been indicated in these states: Tyclings' Men Losing Jobs MARYLAND: New federal partonage is denied to Senator Tydings and to Senator Raclcliffe, who supports him. A Tydings man who was FHA regional director in Maryland has been fired, allegedly for inefficiency. One or two more Tydings men are said to be scheduled for the ax before the primary, September 12, and certain administration officials promise to build New Deal machine afterward whether Tydings wins or loses. Two or three important Tydings men, includ- ng the Baltimore collector of customs ind collector of internal revenue, have Doited to Tydings' opponent, Con- ressman David J. Lewis. | GEORGIA: RFC Attorney Edgar Runlap at Atlanta was ousted because ic insisted on directing Senator eorge's campaign. The state National Emergency Council director, who quit, according to NEC, was replaced by a New Dealer. VIRGINIA: A federal judge was appointed on recommendation of Congressman Flannagan, New Dealer, and Governor Price. Senators Byrd and Glass, their candidate ignored, promise to fight his confirmation. NEVADA: An important federal official whose term expired was replaced by a political foe of Senator Pat McCarran. MONTANA: The NEC job, once held When Doug Corrignn, for the umpteenth time, repeated his story of how he landed in Ireland after heading for California, the Otoc In-lian tribe decided to make it official and dubbed him "Chief Wrong Way" at Tulsa, Okla.

Pcrmnr, who has answered three or four million questions about Mount Vcrnon during 35 years ns a gunrd at Washington's home, had to ask n few questions about the place himself the other dny. The occasion was the 8?-year-old guard's first airplane ride. The pilot pointed over the side of the plane nnd told Mr. Pcrmar he was looking down at Mount Vcrnon. "If that's Mount Vcrnon," said I'er- mar, "then what's that creek doing in front of it; I never say that before." "That's the Potomac river," replied the pilot.

Ships "I est New Chicago Lock Regulating Lake Levels This is such a pretty thing that once you've worn it round the house, in percale, calico or gingham, and discovered how attractive you look, you'll want to make a street version of it without the ricrac braid, in solf wool. For this dress choose one of the popular fall colors—violet, gray or vintage red. The modified r-rincess line makes you gracefully slim, the more so because the effect is emphasized by high-at- the-shoupltler sleeves. Little bows add a comhither touch. They're very smart right now. You'll certainly make Pattern 831.3 up time and again. Have you sent for our Fall and Winter Pattern b-jok? Jit's Locks regulating the amount of water Chicago takes from Lake Michigan to make possible navigation southward on the Chicago and Illinois rivers, to the Mississippi, were being tested as the Naval Reserve training ship Wilmelte and the fireboat Fred M. Busse passed through them in the picture above. The canal connecting the lake with the river has long been a source of controversy, as draining out the water at the foot of Lake Michigan lowered the water level along the whole Great Lakes basin. A U. S. Supreme Court decision required the building of the lock, which will "lower" ships from the higher lake to the river level, and regulate the amount of water taken frora the lakes. 1938 PENNEY'S YEAR] For Style/ Fit/ Economy/ Wear/ MORE OF PENNEY^* FEATURED BARGAINS Bocktofchool 48-in.
