Ry HERBERT LITTLE United Press Staff Cnmspoixleiil WASHINGTON.—Pollllcal trends or I he next two years up to and icludlug the 1932 presidential race •1)1 be drlcrmined In large part by what Ihe final short session of the evenly-first Congress, meeling lo- lay, does and falls to do. Four major problems con from Ihe ongress: 1. Prohibition. 2. Hydro-electric power. 3. The farm problem. 4. Industrial depression, and un- : employment. ' >All of these arc continuing sll- inticn, not to lie solved by an over- light U-jis'.ativc act. H Is safe o say thai in the three-month session none of them finally will be solved. Simple Program President Hoover's program Is a simple one. He desires quick passage of the necessary appropriation bills, which will provide an expected $4,800,000,000 to operate the government In the fiscal year starting next July 1. He wants additional money appropriated to speed the program of public construction. His annual message to congrsss is expected to include recommendations on prohibition, certainly looking to better enforcement and possibly seeking a modification ol the dry-laws in behalf of enforcement. Above all, he and the Republican congrcsslonallead- ers want a quiet session. He has secured pledges of the regular Democratic leaders that they will cooperate to insure passage of the government supply bills and to avert necessity of a special session of the new 72nd Congress with its increased Democratic strength. But the country has just been through a period of economic stress, which has communicaled itself to politics. There is little likelihood that the session will be quiet, and it is likely that, fireworks will be "touched off. as-soon as the President's message is' presented. Harmony Armistice The western Republicans, who delight In their irregularity, and the western and southern Democrats, are restive under the harmony "arlmlstice" proposed by: Democratic Chairman John J. Ra.s- kob, Alfred E. Smith, and other leaders. They made their' campaigns, last fall as antl-adminis- nd' Mrs! Levi Hail' and zoe, "-" .'. A. .Graber arrived from' St. Louis for a sons here. Dr. D.

The -problem that arises, is whether the anti-administration men can, or will employ dilatory and obstructionist tactics to block some of the appropriation bills. Conferences during the first few weeks of the session probably will bring a definite program. A three-month "filibuster" of course Is Impossible and unnecessary. The result of one could be obtained by distracting debate in. the senate, and by stirring up political recriminations and prohibition discussions. Special Session Failure to enact even one of the dozen supply bills by midnight March 3. when the 71st Congress under the constitution goes out of existence, would require Mr. Hoover to call a special session of the new congress. Ard the special session cannot be restricted as lo it$ legislalive activilies. Politically, therefore a special session would be a defeat for President Hoover, and'adoption ol all the appropriation bills before adjournment would •& a major victory. A special session with increased number of votes for the more drastic forms of farm relief might result In their passage. Failure to hold the congress in check might result seriously on Mr Hoover's expected 1932 candidacy. The power issue's Importance has been magnified by the victory of Democratic candidate Franklin D. Roosevelt for governor. He carried upstate New York, tradtlon- ally Republican, .and this victory there is ascribed by many to his stand for government power development, it also is regarded as making Roosevelt No. 1 man among the Democratic presidential possibilities.

Yet pin& were once so scarce that none but the wealthy could afford them. A box of pins was the ne plus ultra, of wedding presents, as much,.. admired as costly jewelry and silverware. As'p.ins became less expensive and in more common use'Ayfpm'en were provided with a certain 'amount ^of money, to be devoted exclusively to the purchase of pins.
