REISER 3 FRANMUN PLACC 400 Franklin PUm rhone T'lfd. 6- 4848 Haw York Office 597 Lexing-ton Ave Fhone Flaza 3- 5300 ii lit I ii Until Nov. 15 (Continued from Page 3) were fighting overseas. The GOP state convention last year went. on record to that effect.

Pascoe said privately "the people are perfectly qualified to know whether they want their Constitu tion revised," and asserted the Senate Republicans had adopted a "poor policy." Charges Hague Influence Governor Edison last week declared that if the Senate Repub licans bottled up the constitutional revision measure, it would be proof they were influenced by Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey City, the Governor's intra Democratic party foe. GOP State Chairman H. Alexan der Smith of Princeton urged the Senate last weekend to give the people an opportunity to decide the question for themselves. Eastwood was asked if Smith was invited to the Republican caucus Monday when the Feller bill was discussed, and he replied, "He cer tainly was not." Among other unfinished Senate business was a controversial election laws codification law, which some lawmakers criticized as going afield of a codification by establish tag new procedure in some respects. Sponsored by Assemblyman Lester E.

Mahr (R-Essex), the bill has cleared the House and has been stymied in the Senate's elections committee for more than a month. Eastwood said during the night It would be "impossible" to pass the Mahr bill in the Upper House this year in its present form. 15 Vetoes Overridden Fifteen of the Governor's vetoes were overridden by the Legislature, among them measures by Assembly man Roscoe P. McClave (R-Bergen) to create a commission to study methods of preventing post-war depression, and by Senator Frank S. Farley (R-Atlantic) suspending the cash basis act for Atlantic City.

The Assembly, during recesses. heard the Glee Club of the Borden- town Manual Training Institute sing a group of spirituals, and later, when Speaker Man field G. Amlicke "disappeared" as the sun was beginning to rise, a group of lawmakers kept their colleagues en tertained with lusty renditions of old-time tunes. A "searching party" was sent out for Amlicke, and he soon returned. explaining to the House: "I had to see that the Senate acted on some of our bills." The Senate approved and directed to the Assembly a measure by Senator Charles K.

Barton (RPassaic) extending the effective date for permanent vote registration in areas where Buch registration is not now in force from next July 1 to next Jan. 1. A companion bill would extend the use of poll books during that period. Committee Set Up The Senate also approved, and the Assembly concurred in, a reso lution by Eastwood creating a joint legislative committee to study the feasibility of placing all state bureaus on a uniform fiscal basis. At present, the Stats Highway Department and other bureaus operating under its budget are on a calendar year basis.

A majority of departments operate under the general state-fund on a July 1-June 30 fiscal year basis. Both Houses approved and directed to Edison a bill by Senator I. Grant Scott (R-Cape May), authorizing the transfer of state em ployes from one department to another, upon recommendation of the State House Commission. A bill which would appropriate up to $10,000 for' the purchase of a ship's library or other gift to be presented to the crew of the new battleship New Jersey as a memorial from the state cleared both Houses and was directed to Edison. In 1942, there were 859,604 persons on U.

S. Federal pension rolls. California is known as the Eldorado State. Keep YOUR NAME OFF THE "LUXURY LIST" Sickness is a luxury. It's luxury the Nation cannot afford in these very important times.

If we are going; "ail out" oa our war effort, as erery patriotic citizen desires, then we need the full measure of effort and energy. In such a situation, disease becomes a drag; And good health is a primary need. So, as a patriotic duty tswell as for your own self-interest-make up your mind here and now that you are going to get well and keep well. Go see your Physician at once. Heed his experienced counsel and, if he prescribes, bring the script here for careful compounding.
