PLANS ARE ANNOUNCED Reciprocal Trade Plan Is Indorsed University Women as Consumer Buyers See Better Values Support of the present reciprocal trade agreements program specifically indorsed at the last biennial convention of the American Association of University Women, is now uppermost in the attention of two departments of that organization, international education, and social studies which covers the consumer field' according to Miss Esther Pagen- hart and Mrs. P. o. Storvick-; Mason City chairmen of those departments. Esther Caukin Brunauer, associate in international education, has appealed to the international relations chairmen of all A. A. U. W. aranches to work in their own communities to increase public understanding and appreciation of what the trade agreements pro;ram means. Dr. Brunauer is known in Mason City, having addressed the local branch. "It is a crucial question of policy, she said. "Will we preserve a measure of free international trade, a comparatively liberal economic policy, to serve as basis for a new world order after war?" Dr. Brunauer classified arguments against the trade agreements into three categories, legal economic and administrative, and lefended the program against hese criticisms. To the legal con- ention that the agreements are in unconstitutional delegation of lowers of congress over tariffs faxes, and treaties, she replied that friends of the program are quite willing to have constitutionality tested in the courts, so sure are they that the agreements follow well-established legislative precedent. As to the economic debate, "the old much-mooted question of free trade versus protectionism," Dr. Brunauer pointed out, "the net result has been expansion of both domestic and foreign markets." * * * As to administration, Dr. Brunauer refuted the contention that the trade agreement negotiations are arbitrary, adding: "The best interests of the nation as a whole are served by the scientific methods used in negotiating the trade treaties, based on impartial, care- -ully prepared technical data methods unique in tariff history." Esther Cole Franklin, associate the social studies, voiced the views of the university women as consumers. "As an economic group, A. A. U. V. is primarily a consumer organization," she said. "The con- umer study project, carried out >y more than 300 groups within he organization, is centered on vays in which the consumer can make her dollar go the farthest, iaving analyzed their positions as Giobe-Gazette 15 Cent Peerless Pattern 1 19 West Nineteenth St., New York City By Diana Day 3098 SIZES 16-SO Style No. 3098 is designed for sizes 16. 36, 38, 40 42 44 4G 48 snH NEW FURNITURE MADE OF GLASS AND PLASTICS By JOAN DURHAM AP Feature Service Writer Headlines are destined to be made by furniture in 1940 For everybody—fabric and upholstery experts, furniture designers and interior decorators—is busy experimenting with media that until very recently had been unknown or used only rarely. Take glass, for instance. It wasn't so far back that glass furniture—or furniture in which glass was used—made its debut It was greeted by all sorts of criticism. Criticism only prodded designers into working harder to make glass furniture really beau* * * Recently a new plastic which is transparent as glass and is pliable aas been made up into a few household effects. Chief among these are coat and dress hangers boudoir chairs and dressing tables' One of the most recent additions is a chair with legs and back -i-amework of the plastic and red tufted satin seat and back It slopped traffic when it was displayed in the window of a Fifth avenue store. Glass and plastics, however aren't the only news. Pickled' sandblasted and bleached woods— particularly oaks and mahoganies —are seen m many of the smartest display rooms. Laminated birch too, is used by one of the foremost designers of those simple, modern chairs and tables you've begun to see. * * * A new material is being used in upholstered furniture and mattresses, the milky sap of the rubber tree, whipped into a foam and baked so that the bubbles sta in it.

They have recognized in the trade treaties one effective means of tearing down these barriers and making more goods available at reasonable prices." * f- * Dr. Franklin cited as indication the trade agreements program has specifically served the consumer, the fact that the average ad valo- rem incidence in 1933, before the program started, was 56.3 per cent, as against approximately 33 per cent on Jan. 1, 1939, when the Anglo-American treaty went into effect, owing to the great number of reductions in the score of trade agreements. "Consequently, as the obvious beneficiaries of a policy which from 1934 to 1939 reduced the average incidence of the tariff more than 60 per cent, these women are east, to Betty Lou Miller of DCS unwilling to return to a system of Moines which took ,Ice Frid-w excessive duttes which they, as evening, J iln . 10. % St John's consumers, must pay, and which Lutheran church in Des Moines at — - 7:30 o'clock.
