Gruridy, for many years head of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers' association, in some counties f are supporting Pinchot, who Is making a strong bid for labot- support. Are Supporting Thomas. In some other counties, lieutenants of Grundy, Who has declared himself dry, are supporting former Congressman TTiomas W. Phillips, who heads the wet ticket as a candidate for the gubenatorlal nomination. , Old line organization leaders In several counties are supporting Brown for governor and Grundy for senator, •while Independent elements In these counties are supporting Pinchot for governor and'Secretary of Labor James J.

C., May 5.—F.L her Improvement in child labor condl- lons in Pennsylvania will be shown AS a result of the decennial census now eing taken, it was indicated here to- ay when a survey showed that the tale already ranks well In _.thts re* pect. Criticism of child labor employment has been especially bitter during dls- usslon of unemployment this winter. Renewed agitation for a child labor amendment to the constitution, is in prospect. As a result figures on the iresent condition are being eagerly, awaited here by authorities. In the last census, Pennsylvania ecords showed that 6.8 pef cent of working people were between 10 and 8 years ot age. The highest rate |as in South Carolina, where 16.2 per ent of ail gainfully employed persons were between those ages.

DEADWOOD, S. D., May 5.—"Deadwood Dick" Clark, hero of a genera- Ion of dime hovel readers, died today n. St. Joseph's hospital after an illness of several weeks. • Cancer, not old age, brought death to. .the plainsman in the sunset of a life that reads' like a history of the old west. He was 84 years old. "Deadwood Dick" . was " almost the last of the actual and fabled heroes of the west. Unlike "Wild B111V Hickok, Calamity Jane and Poker Alice, Clark lived to see his exploits among Indians, road agents and bad men grow Into the legend class. Virtually all his ' life was spent in the west fighting Indians, riding in the pony ,express, guarding stage coaches and guidlngi United States cavalry.. His personal and fabled 'exploits formed the theme of sixty-four paper backed thrillers, written by Edward L. Wheeler, .some times known as Ned Buntllne. These volumes, usually, for- bldden reading for younger generations two or three decades ago, were read by boys and oftentimes girls for years until the plainsman became as well- known as Buffalo Bill Cody, "Wild Bill" Hickok and Kit Carson. N "Deadwflod Dick" himself used to chuckfe over the stories that he had been a road agent until his reform and that he,had spent; his early days robbing stage coaches' and rescuing maidens in distress.

FASHIONS AS SEEN BY FRANCES PAGET By FRANCES PAOET. (Copyright, 1930, by Style Sources.) NEW YORK, May 5.—Since the jacket has been so clever as to change its manners with almost every sul this spring, it has become emboldened to appear often without the style sup port of blouse and skirt. As a separ ate feature, the jacket has alreadj come forcibly to the attention of the public in the varied styles character Istid of the season. Fitted, double breasted, nipped-lny- cape-collared and belted versions in such fabric as, Jersey, flannel, and silk crepe have already changed the jacket from the simple stepchild, the cardigan into a wide range of offerings. , What has not been done in fabric has been undertaken In leather. On recalls the-recent appearance of th suede jacket In princess line, with the rounded edges that speak' o tailored sophistication. Carrying on with this idea, knll wear creators are beginning to real ize the significance of such features their style appeal, their practical value. For, though much has bee done with variations of jackets i conjunction with the suit, until now little importance has attached to them for separate 'garments. Their potentiality . with informal costumes is noteworthy. The overwhelming popularity of the shirtwaist highlighted In the sheerer fabrics suggests the necessity of some warmth In a jacket of all but the warmest of summer resorts. As an alternative to the silk, cotton or linen jacket of the three-piece suit, the. knitted wool version has a place. 1 . To contribute a slightly less formal sports character to the tweed suit that has been worn in town earlier in the spring or to assemble with separate blouse and skirt, it is en extra susceptible of promotion.:. ..There are other phases of usefulness to be considered, for as supplements to .the tennis frock and the shirtwaist dress, such Jacket*-In. their diverse inter? pretations may render the sports frock/ suitable for general resort and suburban wear.
