NEW HAIRDRESSERS OFFICERS --New o f f i c e r s elected Tuesday night at .the monthly meeting- of the Mason City unit of the National Hairdressers and 'Cosmetologists Association are seated from left to right: Lois Warren, secretary; Dorothy Curtis president, and Janet Craig, board member and outgoing president. Standing are" Gerald Raisch Senate Judiciary Chairman Would Cut Bench Absences Special^o Central Press WASHINGTON--A congressiona investigation is looming to deter mine why federal judges "take three-month vacations in the sum mcr, another two or three weeks at 'Christmas, and more time ai Easter." The question is asked by Senator William Langer (R), North Dakota, chairman of the Senate judiciary committee and he intends to find the answer to his question. -He says he is appointing a special subcommittee to look into the situation. Langer emphasizes that farmers, businessmen, and senators do not ~.~ ~ .,, take such lengthy v a c a t ions, although part of this is subject to ·^\ debate. Congress ' adjourned in 1953 "K in early August /^| and didn't reconvene until five months later. Con gr e s s recently authorized LANGER the creation ot 30 new federal judgeships. Langer went along with the legislation but in doing so said. "I wish to give notice that some of the federa judges will have to do more work.' The senator added: "There is no question in my mind that some o! the judges have been taking too many vacations and too long vacations," * * * C A L I F O R N I A --Republicans are becoming increasingly w o r r i e d about developments in California, which will be a key state in the 1954 congressional elections. Two men who long have been regarded as GOP leaders in the Golden State--William Bonelli and Dick Graves -- recently have deserted the Republican standard.; The firm leadership long exerted by former Gov. Earl Warren over the GOP in the Golden State has been missing since his appointment as Chief Justice of the United States. · ; . Warren, believing that the exalted office he now holds should be completely divorced from partisan politics, has declined to pour oil on the troubled waters. California Democrats seek to ex ploit the split in Republican ranks. They believe that if the Democrats can do well in the elections next November, the slate may well be found in the party's fold in 195G, a presidential election year. Meanwhile, Vice President Rich- 1 ard M. Nixon and Senate Majority Leader William F. Knowland have reconciled their own political differences and are united in an attempt to save California for the GOP. * * * M I N I M U M WAGE -- President Eisenhower's refusal to recommend to Congress at this time a change in the 75 cents an hour national m i n i m u m wage has provoked two diametrically opposite reactions. From labor there is strong criticism. The : big unions are accusing the administration of "reneging" again, as they insist the President has done on his 1952 campaign promise to work for removal of inequities and union-busting fea lures of the Taft-Hartley labor law. However, from industry there is genuine satisfaction that the Presi dent passed up any recommenda lions for a change in the minimum wage. Word passed around in Washington is that the President was influenced 1 in his decision by the advice of chairman Arthur Burns of the Council of Economic Advisers, who contended that any increase in the wage a t ; this :lime might incite more layoffs, especially by struggling concerns with low pay scales. A Hopi Indian crew fighting a forest fire in 1953-staged a rain dance and two hours later a'cloud- tmrit put out the fire, says .the ·National Geographic Society,. Gabby (s Mere Pocket Monkey DENVER W--Gabby is a pocket full of monkey. A vest pocket, that is. A y e a r old and only four inches from the top of his head to the base of his tail, Gabby lives with the George L. Moore family in Denver. Mr. and Mrs. Moore and their .hree children--Jane, IB, Jo Ann, 14, and Spike, 11--brought Gabby, a marmoset, home to Denver from Colombia, where they lived four years while Moore was an engineer on an irrigation project in *.he South American republic.

The organization has been celebrating "Beauty Week" by donating time to local nursing homes cutting and shaping the hair of invalid and bed-fast women. Eleven beauticians visited the Good Samaritan Home, the Wass Nursing Homes, Rest Haven, Pools Nursing Home and the County Home. Ike and His Traveling White House By MERRIMAN SMITH PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UP)-Backstairs at the traveling White House: When President Eisenhower vis its a new place, particularly a va cation site, and enjoys himeslf he invariably vows to return at the very first opportunity. The way he's falling for ne\\ vacation lands, he'll be a bus man if he tries to cover the whole circuit every year. In addition to Augusta, Ga., and Denver, the President likes the hunting at Thorn as ville, Ga., and the fishing in the Black Hills of South Dakota Add to these, Palm Springs ami Southern California. If Mrs. Eis enhover enjoys the sun out here the President and his wife can be expected to come back next winter Sidney Hyman, in his new book 'The American President," says probably not more than 100 men in the United States "now possess the combination of traits that qualify them for the 'natural aristocracy' from which Presidents are chosen." Hyman, who worked for Democratic presidential nominee Adlai E. Stevenson, also does not think the 1952 campaign proved very much about the effects of television on a major political battle. Some of the professional politicians would disagree with him on that point. At any rate, Hyman is speaking of a "television candidate"--a man selected as a candidate largely because of his TV appear- "Beauty Week" is Feb. 21-27. CLUB FOR E L D E R L Y REVERE, Mass. (UP)--The city manager recently organized the Golden Age Club and more than 100 men and women over 65 already are members. The idea is to provide a place where lonely oldsters can get together for entertainment and mental improvement. ance. "We know that the camera lens can bring the secrets of a man into a pitiless light," says Hyman. "And it also can play cruel tricks on gifted individuals who are afflicted with distracting facial mannerisms. 'Yet it seems unlikely that television will cast up a physical prototype of honesty and verve, like a face stamped on a coin, which a candidate must match at the risk of being dismissed as a counterfeit. "Nor is it possible as yet to pinpoiont the extent to which the fate of two presidential candidates is influenced by their television performances." Cbnroy Boosts Dairy Products at Conventions James B. Conroy, candidate for 3rd District Congressman Wednesday urged all Chambers of Commerce in Iowa to encourage a substantial increase in the use of dairy products at all conventions and club meetings held in their respective cities and towns. ' / Conroy pointed out that such active interest in the use of dairy products, as he helped generate in the recent Farm Institute in Des Moines (with butter plates and two glasses of milk for each person) could well catch on in all areas of the United States. "Iowa," said the 30 year old Cerro Gordo farmer, "should take the lead in arousing more interest in the sale and distribution of dairy products." Conroy added that he was sending letters to Arch Booth, executive vice president of the United State? Chambers of Commerce, Washington, D.C., a n d Lloyd Lewis, Davenport, president of the Iowa Chamber of Commerce Executives, asking their assistance in this drive. EAT ANYTHING WITH FALSE TEETH!
