It was Interesting and helped us In making our selections of spring fashions." , "One day was spent making selections of spring garments for large wfemen. Mrs. Twaddell added; "The greatest shock one receives In visiting Los Angeles, Is seeing the mannish attire that Is. being adopted by Hollywood. Slacks, or Oxford bags ur>! sometimes seen on the street, these are cut on the same linos as men's trousers and arc considered exceedingly smart. Skirt hems will be from eight to twelve Inches above the ground, while the apparel Itself will have straight lines but will not be tight. An Increasing utilization of pleats to be used with discretion at the skir't bottom. Capes will be popular for certain costumes. Scarfs that may be utilized In various ways are In 'favor. "It would be Impossible to give a review of accepted fashions without mentioning suits. This will be by far , the biggest suit season In years. The jacket suit promises to regain Its old- time popularity. One'of the newest models and one that will appeal to women of Bakersfleld, Is of linen In creamy white, worn with a colorful scarf underneath a short jacket.

Tn whose eyes a vile person Is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and chang- eth not. He that putteth not out his mopey to usury, nor taketh reward against the Innocent. He that doeth •these things shall never be moved."

Page Ont) stand Idly by, while the old Congress, many of whose members have boon repudiated at the polls, proceeds to legislate, for the people. "The evil* of tueh a situation are apparent • to any student of government. Under thete conditions, * Congrew repudiated at the general election may put on th* •tatute book* lawi that were actually condemned In the preceding •lection." Norrls pointed out elimination of the short session would .eliminate the opportunity for an "unjustifiable" filibuster, often conducted by "lame duck" members desirous of tying tip legislation. End of Subterviency "During my service In Congress, I have seen many Instances where some members of the Senate who have been defeated for re*elecU6n have been absolutely subservient to the will of tho executive," Norrls continued. "And I have seen .these same men rewarded for their conduct by appointment to offices better than the ones/tho people had taken away from thorn." He pointed out the new amendment would eliminate the necessity for congressmen to run for re-election with tho record for only one session to place'before the people, Norrls reviewed the progress of his fight, and declared a study of It would show that "entrenched behind the breastworks of the old constitutional provision were the organized political machines of special privilege." *-»•» TO TO STOCKS AND Cotton Futures (Attoclalcd Press Leased Wire) NEW YORK, Jan. 23.—Cotton traders evidently found no special Inspiration In tho general news today and business wus quiet, with fluctuations correspondingly narrow.

T HERE is much talk In congressional halls of the anticipated ive-cent glass of beer that, it is hoped by drinkers, may make its -ao- earance early In tho year 1933. Tnfs. beer at five cents a glass is depended upon to ( balance the budget and at the same time to satisfy the drinker. But whcrp are the millions of men and the millions of nickels that are to purchase the vast quantity of beer necessary to balance the budget? In her statement on legalizing beer before the ways and means committee of tho House of Representatives on December 24, 1932, Mrs. Ella A, Boole said: "Even money given for relief would find its way- into beer channels. I have, myself, seen hundreds of unemployed men in England go to the public house Immediately on receipt of the dole and not leave until every penny was spent." Charity for Beer Those of us who havo been more provident or fortunate than some of our neighbors and still have a living Income are constantly called upon to contribute to relief funds, to^glve help to needy families, or are solicited on the streets ,nnd at home. In these trying days one does not feel Inclined to scrutinize too closely the use that applicants for help may make of what wo give them. But if easily accessible, five-cent beer comes back, what assurance have wo that the money we give, through charities nnd personally will not bo turned over immediately to tho brewery agencies for beer rather than for food? Indeed, as Mrs. Boole has said of England, that Is precisely where some of the money given will go. Even If not moro than ono or two such cases of tho misuse of relief funds were Known t It would bo apt to harden the hearts uf glvor.s to benevolences, who havo no dcslro to contribute out of their limited funds to the brewers. — Union Signals. Excessively Wet Mexico City has long been one of tho wettest spots on earth. Whisky, brandy, cognqc, mezcal, pulque, guardlente, sotol, cedron, nnd many other drinks of high alcoholic content have been available to the public In thousands of cantlnas of the Mexican capital — not to mention the milder, but nevertheless dangerous wines anc beers. But at last there is hope for a change In these, Intolerable conditions, and that hope rests in the school boys of the Mexican capital, who have organized themselves Into a "League Against Alcohol.", Fifty thousand o them gathered In tho national stadium there recently and swore to abhor aw detest alcohol, the degenorator o their race. President Ortiz Rubio presided m the coromony,and received tho oath which chanted In solemn unlsoi by fifty, thousand boyn, who of the state director of finance. One would require approval of tho state treasurer and controller for bond buy- Ing and selling nnd the other would limit tho leasing power of tho finance director to two years. These matters rose out of hearings the investigating committee has held on alleged irregularities In the state government. Senator Roy Fellom and Arthur II. Breed Introduced a bill guaranteeing that funds the stnto upends from Its northern California gasoline tax revenues for approaches to tho San Francisco-Oakland bridge will be refunded from bridge tolls collected after retirement of the bridge bonds. State Lends Counties Fellom also Introduced a bill, based upon recommendations of the California state unemployment commission, that the state raise $20,000,000 by bonds or some other method for relief loans to counties. The counties would repay tho state within ten years, beginning 1937. Another bill providing mcnns of financing Is to bo Introduced tomorrow. School Compromise A compromise school support amendment was proposed on the floor of the Senate as a means of balancing the state budget. The measure, designed to effect less drastic economies in constitutional guarantees for school support, would reduce the state payments from $30 to $27 per pupil, saving the state approximately $6,000.000 per biennlum. It would nlBo set a maximum of $24 and $48 for the basis of county assessments for elementary and high schools Instead of the $30 and $60 In the amendment of R. R. Ingels, Potter valley, which has received cOm- mlttee approval. The Ingels bill does not change the state basis ot apportionment. with btirctl beads ami luinds helc high.

An inventory of tho Institution's as- ets now under way by 12 state and ederal bank examiners will require wo weeks to complete, Edward alnoy, state superintendent of banks, nnounced. At the end of that tlmo, e said, a receiver for tho stato bank ill be appointed. The national bank eceiver will be named by tho con- roller of currency at Washington. In tho meantime, industrial and com- nerolal Interests with funds frozen ehind the closed doors of tho Call- ornla National were assured of the tmost credit consideration by other argo Sacramento banks, which opened t 8 a. m., today to accommodate cus- omers. With $13,000,000 In currency rushed ore from tho federal reserve bank t San Francisco the banks were pre_ ared today to handle any emergency vhlch might arise. Fenrs of a run vore dispelled, however, when a heckup nt the close of business Saturday night revealed deposits during he day had exceeded the withdrawals caused by excitement over tho clos- ng of the California, National. 4 « • • Abhorrence," as It Is popularly known n Mexico, follows: "By the flag of our beloved coun- ry! By the land where wo first saw- he light! By our sublime Mexico! Beneath our glorious flag and under he eyes of God we swear, one and ill, never to degrade ourselves with alcohol. We swear to abhor alcohol, .he assassin of our national spirit and he degenerate of our race!" Written by Schoolboy The oath of abhorrence, judged mrely by Its Impressive blending of [randeur and simplicity, might well lave been the ' work "of a famous author In an Inspired moment. But It was written by a Mexican schoolboy, Edmundo Peraza Vlllanueva. Edmundo, or Edmund, as he would be called In tho United States, wroto It n competition with thousands of other schoolboys. Ho received a gold ncdal from tho hands of the President of Mexico as a reward for. writing the oath, but it Is safe to say he had a bigger thrill from hearing it chanted, word for word, by fifty thousand earnest-eyed schoolmates. In view of the many attacks to which our own prohibition legislation Is being subjected, It Is Interesting and encouraging to note that the Schoolboys' League Against Alcohol was organized In hope of bringing about similar legislation in Mexico. Fifty thousand boys are now preaching tho evils of alcoholic Indulgence, each in his own home; and their united Influence Is tremendous. When tho school boys of today bc.- come the men of tomorrow,' then will prohibition como to Mexico, and then will prohibition be more easily enforced In tho United Statos, for there will bo no more smuggling of liquor across tho Mexican border into our country.—John Newman Page. • « » DRILL TEAM TO MEET The drill team of Harold Brown Auxiliary No. 1408, Veterans of Foreign Warn, will meet Wednesday evening at Moose hall at 8 o'clock.
