The l^KA was a complete overthrow of Democratic policy on trust laws Since its annulment, Ihe partj Has played with thc Ouffey Act s another -complete denial of its old anti-trust policy. The Ouffey Act has been held luifOiistitHlioiinl. but the desire of the president lo move in that general direction Is known. NO Tna, can make an honest declaration against monopolies and support these measures. Besides, the Department of Jus- lice under Attorney-General Horn I er S. Cummings has done noth- I ins against Die trusts. In charge of the trust clirtsion is a notorious critic of the anti-trust act This is a dangerous subject There are senators like Black of Alabama who are bitterly nKainst the administration's record on this business. The administration will have to use its supprcs- sive power to keep out a fight on an anti-trust plank. The Consfilution, of course is going to be soft-pedaled. The Constitution, as Judge Hughes once said, is what the supreme court makes it. As it stands, therefore it makes all application of the president's so-called planned economy impossible. But the president Is clearly afraid of that issue. Last week he said the Constitution was good enough for him. There will,-there- lore, be no constitutional amendment platik unless the force comes from someone But the supreme court is not good enough for the president He undoubtedly believes the best way to handle that thorn is to wait until one or more of the justices depart in the next four years. A new appointment would "fin, but not much. - After all, the president may lose one of his own supporters on thc bench. And we may remember that the MRA was declared illegal unanimously and that the Guffey Act and the AAA were thrown out by a 6 to 3 verdict. . The president would have to get two appointments and they would have to be on the right side of the court to help him there. There will be various minor -.<ik.iv. I* in uu Vilnius minor scraps about minor plnnks, but aside from money, the trust laws, and perhaps the Constitution, no major row appears on (fie horizon now. We may be treated to the spectacle of n quiet, tranquil, pcr- | fcctly disciplined Democratic convention.

It used to be said of the Master- Draper, head of an oldtime dry goods store, that he stroked his chin knowingly when certain customers walked in. This was a sign to his assistant that they could probably he "shaved" . . . ov given the worst of the bargain! Today, walking in and buying the goods for a new dress is wholly without any such hazard. The fabric marked "wool" is just that. Pure silk is woven from the natural silkworm product. If the fabric is composed of one of the newer, man-made yarns, the type of rayon is usually named in a sign on the counter, or on the end of the bolt of cloth. And the price, you get out of the advertisement no quibbling about that! You read before you shop, and buy just as much as the pattern-envelope calls' for. Every day, now, there are especially good buys in dress goods. Have you looked at all the advertising pages today?
