'' ' Until now, hat styles had not evolv ed in the same degree as dress styles Last year's shapes did not show an noticeable change, from the "little fe hat 1 ' that complemented the chemis frock, but the coming: season will se the definite return of dressier hats, i keeping with the more formal gowns , There are many women who do ri< know the why and wherefore of a ha They have some idea ttjat. the .neces sary touch of color in' a' darkl-ensemb; can be put in the hat* alone.

The new spring fashions, as Well a days full pf sunshine, created the n«e for larger hat shapes than had bee worn in many years. It was but simple and natural deduction that plo ture hats would soon follow in th wake of the longer skirt of the forma Afternoon gown. These i new shape are often of delicate pastel shades completing the new color harmonies and all'have soft, supple brims. I think these 'new hats -ire bepom ing to women.

Then, also, the .Wickershani commission will have completed the most n tensive study ever made of any modern issue in thl* country aftd full recommendations as to'the wisdom of he prohibition. policy can safely be made. Mr. Hoover does not have a preference for a report favoring either the wet Or dry causes, his friends declare. Ie is not wedded to,the present prohibition policy, they say, and would feel free to recommend modification 'or retention of the present system, those close to Jilm.say,. •.,-.? Meantime he will insist upon carry- ng forward his strict law enforcement refOrih program as best he can in view of the failure of congress to provide all the legislation recommended in the preliminary report of the Wickersham commission. - ;. These authoritative statements of the executive's views are regarded with great interest Here because of the recent correspondence of William H. Stayton, head of the Association Against 'the Prohibition Amendment, produced by the senate lobby committee. These letters 1 developed the big question: "Is or dry?" Stayton in his correspondence labeled the president a'wet at heart," or at least not In sympathy with prohibition. ,.The wet leader charged that the chief executive with six members of his cabinet. Believed "prohibition is a failure." The only answer which has come from the White House' was Indirect It was a message to congress, receivec while Stayton was on • the stand. : .11 urged the senate and the house to get busy and pass the seven pending.Jaw enforcement reform' bills Which Mr Hoover said were necessary if he was to carry out his sworn duty to enforce the law to the best of his ability. While Stayton was testifying yes terday, Mr. Hoover was writing E second message, .asking congress to provide $250,000 more to enable the law enforcement commission to complet its work. • •Whaty the. drys think about-Mr Hoover and his prohibition attitude will probably be developed by the com mtttee ' next week, when officials o the Anti-Saloon League,- includin.

As the miners assembled for their fourth day, it appeared likely that the sessions'will last into next week. Classification of the scores pf resolutions submitted, by various local unions in the three anthracite districts revealed that seventy-one more resolutions must''be disposed of before the miners Veach the most important part of their deliberations, the wage scale. After these matters are acted \on, the delegates must act on 307 other resolutions directly applying to wage scale affairs. It is believed, however, that the scale matters will be handled In bulk by the committee. Declaring: he considered the verdict a reflection upon his integrity, Rt. Aev. H. P.

C., May 3.— Behind the scenes, administration eaders were making their last desperate fight today foe. confirmation, of Judge John J. Parker 6^ an- associate justice of the supreme court. The senate was not in sesslbn, having recessed until Monday. •,'••• The outcome of the Parker fight will depend upon how many votes .Republican leaders are able to muster during the week-end, half a dozen vptes- still are doubtful.- They are all needed to confirm the nominee. Parker's opponents were confident today of defeating- him, in spite of the breathing spell arranged by.his supporters. They had enough votes to beat ,hlm when the- senate recessed yesterday, they said, and they believed the only person who can change the line-up is -President Hoover. He can only do it, they added, by exerting great pressure. No one 'Was willing to predict today when the final vote on Parker will be taken. Although the debate has lasted a week already, it is appeared likely that another two or three days will be consumed. Determined not to let a vote come this .week, Senator Fess, Republican whip and leader of the Parker forces, spoke at length three times during the last two days. • . . • ;FeSs' third speech yfsterday was made after SenaWNttrrtB, RepiJblidany' Nebraska, appealed to the senate to reject the nomination., "Parker is not the issUe.
