Wool jersey gloves are ! new. I 'William Heller, important creator of the type of beautiful fabrics on which designers depend for inspiration as well as the successful carrying out of their own ideas, makes a wool jersey with a satin back for the woman : who always says, "But I can't wear jersey next to my skin." The Heller jersey collection includes materials as heavy and strong as tweed, others as "fragile and sheer as cobwebs, and many as-soft-as-down cashmere types.

Draft More Liberal Than In 1917 Toward Conscientious Objectors By BltUCK CATTON KEA Service Stall Correspo»<l«uf WASHINGTON, Oct. 7. — Although stiffer than the World Wai law in most ways, the present selective service net takes a' fnr more liberal and intelligent attitude toward conscientious objectors—foi which reason the whole question U likely to be much less of u problem than in 1917. The World War draft law hardly admitted there could be such;a thing- as a conscientious objector. A rational policy for dealing with objectors was not worked out un- .il the war was nearly over. Hard treatment was the rule; 17: objectors were .sentenced to ba shot (although all these sentences were commuted) and 503 were sentenced to prison. Many of those in prison were given extremely brutal treatment. ''.-.Today things seem certain to go much • more 'smoothly. Out of the 17.000.000 men obliged to register. authorities so far have listed "only 32 cases of objectors who refused to fill out their cards. SPECIAL FORM PREPARED This is largely because the problem was recognized in advance. While the draft act was before congress the whole question was carefully studied. Both War Department and congress freely admitted "' that while they might not agree with the stand of the objector, tey were going to have to deal with him and might as. well work, out a common sense way of doing it. Accordingly, an elaborate program was set up. ,? A -special .form supplementary, to the general selective service questionnaire has been prepared" to, permit filing of in- when their names were called.

Far from opposing this, the War Department Is co-operating and has assigned a staff officer to work with French. .-French, is by no means out to promote objection to the draft. He sees his principal job as explaining to all objectors just what the law's provisions are.. His first tusk, for instance, was to make clear that since'the law recognised the objector's rights the objector was under a moral obligation to register. For example: a week or more before registration day, French went to Massachusetts-to'talk to a group of 70-odd pacifist students from various New England colleges. He found most of them rather confused about the situation and talking 1 rather vaguely 'about how they would go to jail miner than resistor. .
