And Norman Thomas, 64-year-old New Yorker who five times ha? been his party's candidate for president said "I may have to accept nomination if the convention goes as I think it will. "I'll watch proceedings and decide tomorrow," he told a reporter. The convention continues through Sunday in the eastern Pennsylvania city which long has had a powerful Socialist party organization. Nomination of the president and vice president candidates is scheduled for Sunday morning. Thomas, elected today to the Important platform committee, said his running mate in 1940, Professor Maynard Krueger of the University of Chicago, has declined to be a candidate for president. He added there are other good men available but said the party most consider :ho difficulty of getting their name on the ballot in the event they are not widely known in many states. National Secretary Harry Fleischmann of New York, however, predicted in his annual report Socialist candidates will appear on the prea- dential ballot in "from 33 to 37 states and our presidential ticket will be placed before at least 30 per cent, of the American electorate." The first convention boom for Thomas came from a non-delegate, Ben McDauren of New York, international representative of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. He hailed the veteran Socialist leader as "the one outstanding Liberal" in America. Those under consideration aa possible vice presidential timber include: Marj" Donovan Hapgood, of In- dionapolli.', Ind., wife of veteran Socialist Lender Powers Hapgood. Tucker P. Smith, economics pros fessor at Olivet college. Olivet, Mich. Darlington Hoopes, Reading at- .ornoy and former Pennsylvania r t a t o j legislator. Chesler Graham, of Madison, Wl»., and Jamestown, N. D., leader of the Farmers union in the Middle West. Electftd to tie nine member pUrt- form committee, in addition to Thomas, were: Martin Diamond, Chicago; Sam Friedman, New York; Aaron Levenstein, New York; Jean' Monfort, Boston; Rotiin Myers, New York; Harvey Taylor, Gary, Ind.; Car] Whltehead, Denver, Colo., and George Hartman, Skidmore, N.

Solon Explains Sudden Silence In Barber Shops By ED CBKAGH Washington. May 7 --(#)-- Kver ince there have been fcarbers, therci have been jokes about barbers. Ton know: The man in the white coat who tends your «ar about olitlcs as he applies the clipper* where you didn't want them. The larber wha wants to sell you every bottle of gtinkum on. his shelves. It's a legend that goea 'way bade to Roman time. Cicero. th«l book* .·ay, was asked by his, barter how he wanted his hair cut. "In liUence," the great man replied. Well, the joke's over. Tour barber doesn't dare try to sell you hair . tonic thesu days., saye Rep. Curtis (R-Ndb.). In fact, the poor guy hardly dares venture an opinion about Russia, or the Brooklyn Dodgers, or Lana Turner. He's scared to death! "If a barber wants to sell a bottle or two of hair tonic, be must sign a certificate that scare! him to death," Curtia informed the house. He produced the certificate, too. It's put out by the people -who Mil barber supplies and It tells the bar. ber what he's up against In the matter of federal taxes: A $10,000 fine or five year* In ail or both if he cracks.'open » ottle of hair tonic which he bought for resale. The barbers, Mid Curtis, are In despair: "They Just throw up their ands and cannot operate under such a law. They do not' sell at 'etail. . . ." Curtis has a Mil t° remedy this. It would take away the 30 per cent federal tax on bulk cosmetics used in barber and- beauty shops And it would' do away, the congressman said, "with the necessity '-of signing these obnoxious, frightening certificates." There's- every reason to believe Curtta said, that the house will pass his bill. Then the barkers of the nation can relax. They can uncork a Jus; of 88-proof dandruff remover with no fear of stone walls and Iron bars. In their new freedom, they may even resume their historic status as authorities on economics, fashions and life after death. You can almost hear them now-talking as they snip, praising Dr Baldy's hair-restorer to the ekies' Or hadn't you noticed that they ever stopped? society of the Methodist church will meet on Monday night with Mrs. May Prophets--.
