Corrective" Act Introduced • To Eliminate Prolonged •• Term In Office y ^ ATLANTA; Ga. (UP) — Georgia "state officials'believe thac defeated public service commissioners in this •state' hold something: of a record as lame ducks. , A Commissioner who ^fails to get the Democratic nomi- - nation in the September primary— which is tantamount, to election- Continues to hold office until a year 'from last December. ^ This curious situation dates back to the creation of the state railroad commission — forerunner of the 'piiblic service commission—in 1879. ,The'; "original commissioners - were appointed in '79 for four year terms, their successors to be elected to similar terms. Of course, 1879 was not an. election year, hence the first ectiu 1 commiiisiohcrs Were select- 111 iiiB2, while'.the -original ap- ' poiMtive. commissioners s'Uli had. a (year to serve. The discrepancy has continued ever since.'. In the early .1920s a bill was Introduced into 'the '.legislature to eliminate this, situation. Immedi- jately :L was made a general meius- | ure to clear up a number of other sinvlar sit nations,- notably ihat of the commissioner of agriculture, whose term ran until the June following the election of his successor in November. However, in the process of get- ling the bill into shape, all reference to the public service commission was inadvertently left out of the title. This error was not discovered until months later, and the supreme court ruled that the law could not be construed to affect the public service commission until the error was rectified by legislative action. A corrective act tins 'never been introduced 'in the general assembly.

Photo passed bv British censor CATION'S WASHINGTON COLUMN WASHINGTON.—America's manpower is in poorer physical shape today than in 1917-18, if preliminary .figures on army applications rejected because of the applicants' physical defects can be relied upon. In the last war, between 20 and 25 per cent of the first 3.000,000 men called up in the draft were rc-jc^tcd for physical defects. Comparison with today's draftees is not yet possible, .since not enough men have yet been called to service. Only about 20,000 drafted men have been "processed" by the various induction boards. The only' comparison available comes from- a study of the army's figure., on": voluntary enlistments. • ' Latest tabulations cover enlistments for the first six months of 1940. These .show that 32 per cent of all the men who sought to enlist in" that period were rejected. Some were turned down for other than physical reasons—married men aren't accepted, for instance, with criminal records—but FIJKNY., BUSINESS . l»4l BY NEA SERVICE. (MC/T.fc REC.U. S. PAT. Off. ment. There's that invitation to dinner at 8—which comes at 5—after she's had a busy, exacting clay at the office with no time for a hair-do or a manicure. The situation calls for plenty of resourcefulness. That is, if she is determined that her own appearance will stack up well among other guests who had time ior a nap during the day, a rz-eslt fingenvave and perhaps a Facial. Given only forty-five minutes In which to transform her appearance from that of a dusty, weary .office worker, who didn't keep her resolution to have her hair, done every five days and. whose nail polish is chipped and cracked, she begins by brushing her hair for one minute. SCHEDULE FOR, BEAUTY Then she turns on the water hi the tub. While it is running, she nibs her scalp and hair briskly with a coarse, dry, clean bath towel. She dampens uncurled, straggling ends ever so slightly, rolls them up on little metal curlers and wraps a scarf around her head. She washes her face and throat quickly, covers them with a layer of cream and steps into the tub for a rapid but thorough scrubbing. Afterward, she rinses her eyes with a soothing lotion, pats on a deodorant, removes the cream from.her skin and then rinses \\ith plenty of cold water. All of which lias taken twenty- five minutes of the three-quarters of an hour, leaving twenty minutes for dressing, hair combing, making up and putting on a fresh coat of polish. However, because she keeps her clothes and makeup in order and therefore doesn't have to waste five minutes looking for mascara, stockings without runs and an. evening bag, she really can do a pretty efficient job in such a short space of time. When she has a full horn- to dress for an. unexpected party, she spends ten minutes of It resting with a mask on her face and closed eyes covered with cotton pads that have been wrung out of witch hazel or a special eye lotion. She always leaves changing nail polish until the last. If she finishes her face and hair sooner than she expected, she removes old polish, if not, she simplv patches chipped areas, then puts a fresh coat right on over the old patched coat. Since she is completely dressed, with hair combed and evening bag ready to be picked up, she can sit quietly and let the polish dry until it's time to. leave.. In addition to keeping everything in its place, the secret of on makeup until she can do an artistic job in a few minutes. She shopped around until she found a mask which, in ten minutes, will give her skin a glow comparable to the glow an hour';; nap achieves. She had to. She also had to learn to dress quickly without getting nervous and "going completely to pieces." As a result, she manages to be one of the most poised as well as tfresh-faced, well-groomed guests at any party. Nobody ever says to HER: "But you MUST have had a hard day. my dear."

Army authorities are 'extremely loach to admit that a companion between 1918 draftees and 1940 enlistments may properly be made. They prefer to wait until the medical records of at least 200,000 draftees arc at hand before trying that the administration has become concerned over the health picture among low-income groups- Original plnni called for mucli heavier cuts than those finally made in appropriations for such activities as WPA. administration' to make any comparisons, and do not expect to draw any conclusions before some time next Spring. OTHER OFFICES WORRIED. TOO Nevertheless, it is true that the physical standards applied ( to drafted men in 1917-18 are practically on a level with those applied today, both for voluntary enlistments and for men called under the selective service act. It is also true that other branches of the government' which have had a look at the current enlistment rejection figures are badly worried about the situation.-} Arhong these is the Farm Security Administration, which independently is making ^tensive studies i of health conditions in rural areas —from which the percentage of enlistments in proportion to total population is about twice as heavy as from urban localities. PSA officials suspect a great many of the physical defects which are showing up both in the army figures and in PSA's own studies are due to poverty — to malnutrition, and to the fact that many Americans are growing up withoftt getting any medical care whatever. Health surveys made in two "sample" southern cot>vties in cooperation with state health boards. PSA officials say, showed 575 low- I income persons studied had a net total of 1373 serious physical ailments, including things like infected tonsils, seriously defective vision and bad teeth' which could have been corrected if medical care had been available. •McNUTT TO STUDY PROBLEM.
