By JOICN T .DK OA-NDT T J n i t n d Pros* Start Correspondent. MADRID, Jan. 8. -- Pessimism born oÂ£ a sense of tho Impending decline of hia roglmo as indicated d u r i n g the tra;;ic events of 1929 marked Premier Primo Do Rlvora's attitude at the clone ot' tho year just passed and influenced his program for tho year he now faces. 'Lack of support on many sktes was deplored by tho dictator In his public pronouncements. Ho even ' admitted t h a t the year 1029 almost, ended tragically for tho regime ho founded more t h a n a hall' dozen years ago. In a slisnd article on December 3.1, in his official organ, La Naciion, Do Rivera Â·wrote: "Politics iÂ» ever paradoxical. The aristocrats aro o h j f e t h i R because In the projected shigle-eluimber system they would lose some seats. Tho conservatives are opposed because, they want tho constitution ot 1376 maintained. Those ulosrst to tho church retrain f r o m applauding tho dictatorship. Hankers and industrialists, because they aro forced to pay their taxes integrally; employers, because Uic dictatorship i;; protecting the workers; state employes, because they must work p u n c t u a l l y ; the press for reasons everyone knows -- all join the others who are against tho dictatorship and say it has lasted too long. "This would bo till Tight it brought to a solution instead of returning to Ihc point from w h i c h wo started. Seven years are not sufficient to mako the* marshes sanitary. I hope God will Iirovoiit a great mistake." J n a New Year statement, De TUvera dramatically went even further. "Tho year 192!) was a disastrous one," he said. "Let, it go to the devil. 1 hope 1930 will be easier and permit me- to retire and rest peacefully." H would bo difficult to b more pessimistic. Tho t r u t h is that some- thin 1 -? was happening behind tho curtain which justified the premier's dc- jertlon. ) n December the cabinet mot under De Rivera's presidency and decided that at a meeting t t x b e held noxt day Iiri.'Sldcrt over by King Alfonso, tho promior would submit a plan .he had p tv pa red "for traiu-itlon toward cons t i t u t i o n a l normality." Tho m o r u n d u m confirmed that the premier's project for a new constitution had boon cancelled and suggested a r e f o r m ol tho constitution ot 187G. Tho first step proposed was tho elections to a single chambered parlia- n u n t . U n d e r tho -reform tho lung w o u l d sign a decree.-. altering the cons t i t u t i o n of 1S76 to substitute tho single-chamber form oÂ£ government for tho two-chamber form which existed until De RivoiM began his regime in 1923. A historical m e e t i n g presided over by tho king was hold Now Year's Kve. Tho premier read his plan. The king Tor.aainod sealed and asked, the- ministers w h a t they thought of the idea. They could do nothing but nod approval. Tho king thereupon arose and in a cold tone said lie would take time to think the matter over. .He ultimately approved the De Rivera plan except tho main feature -- rotorm of tho constitution by decree -ac.'lion on ivhieh was postponed indefinitely. The compromise enabled tho premier to announce tho dictatorship would c o n t i n u e for another halt year. Had King Alfonso precipitated a cablnt crisis New Year's Eve, he would have "faced t h a t most difficult oi (tucstions: Who would rulo after tho dictatorship? I* not, -that the reason for tho kind of suspended sen- Â·toaco granted Pritao Do Rivera last Thursday? Due- to the unc.rTc.amty of the situation, tho U n i t e d Press gathered opinions of several prominent inon. Count Komanonca, Conner liberal premier, stressed tho king's refusal to accept Do Rivera's Cull plan. Alfonso's refusal was tho biggest blow yet s u f - fered by the dictatorship, the count said. Miguel VUlanuevd, former president tft tho Chamber ol! Deputies, said: "Slaves do not discn.ss thing's with their masters. They wait the hour of freedom." Others saw no change except by violence, some favored a constituent assembly. Niccto Alcala S5amorn, liberal leader, qualified his partial approbation of l)e Kivora's plan. J u l i a n He-stolro, Socialist leader, said t h e d i c t a t o r s h i p was established because tho monarchy had failed. "Tho d i c t a t o r s h i p f a i n o to save tho k-irift from being judged by Parliament," ho declared. "Tho present s i t u a t i o n is e x t r e m e l y serious for the m o n a r c h y ; the external .structure ot w h i c h has been preserved so far but some day may collapse.

The fabrics of the winter collection are more varied than ever before for flattering the skin textures of many types of women, as well as of the mode in texture, says a fashion au- t h o r i t y - I n the Kansas City Star. Color, of course, plays a part In the charrri of fabrics. Tweeds tiud Jerseys, for instance, were dyed in the thread before they were woven to combine two or throe textures and preserve a perfect color harmony. For the woman w i t h a very flue textured skin, the finer weaves will be the thing. Or she may use a combination with the lino weave or a fur next her face, for the fine skin often looks cold In t e x t u r e nraonR the harmony of wurinth which the broken tweeds create. A great variety of dull crepes are In daytime frocks, afternoon gowns and In evening gowus. Some are richly craped; others are Hne' and smooth, but perfectly lusterless; aorne are (Inoly creped and show a Blight undertone of luster; some are transparent and ao lightly creped thnt they are almost ns (!ne In texture as the "roseleaf" complexion. Other diaphanous weaves are more deeply creped. Some show slight ribs, but most have uniform .'surfaces. A m o n g this great variety vcndeusea are trained to find the surface whlcb will make the perfect texture harmony with each woman's skin. Varied surfaces of velvets, some with short, flat p!lÂ«; some with a long, downy pile. All are exquisitely supple and semltranspare'nt.

Elbow Sleeves Used in Modish Sports Dresses Longer skirts and higher waistlines are bringing In their train other shades of the past, such ns the short sleeve. Fashion hinted at this _as far back ns lust spring. This sleeve appeared in a few theater frocks and then seemed to be shelved during the summer. The cap sleeve arrived with the Sunday night dress and the debutante dance froclc, and now the elbow length sleeve Is on its way. This type of sleeve Is seen in sports dresses for southern resort wear. It is very much in keeping w i t h present fashions and j;ives excellent proportion to the dress designed In the 1930 uer.
