All of them are expected to be ready for introduction early in the session.

One la the election law codification which passed the Senate irt 1933 but was defeated In the House.

With the rev elation that more than 100 "test tube'' babies have been brought in to New York homes within the past few months, Dr. Frances Seymour, expert in this new field ot synthetic reproduction, today told how a "bachelor girl" had come to her and asked her aid in obtaining a child. She was a young professional woman, the doctor said, and she visited the office orl learning that success haa ben achieved in filling- the gap in childless homes by insemination. "There is no reason why you can not have a child," the doctor said. "Does your' husband object" "I have no husband,1 the woman replied, and then went on to ex plain how her business career necessitated she remain single, but that she desired motherhood none the less. In all the thirteen cases handled by Dr. Seymour, she made clear today, the husband ot the mother has always been the father of the "test tube" baby.

The 4 8 States should be consolidated Into 12- units for economic! as. well a geographic reasons, in the opinion of former Congressman E. J. Jones, of Bradford. Addressing the concluding ses sion of the District Conference of Rotary International, Jones de clared last night that "the horee and buggy days are Over, and the system of townships and counties and States, a relic of those day Should be reorganised." "It may sound revolutionary, but I would suggest that the union consist of no more than 12 States. the House of Representatives then could be reduced to about 4 8 members, and it probably would do far more than it does with its present membership."
