THE RED CROSS lists a number of "don'ta" for householders: Don't leave toys on the staircase, j Don't open cam with a knife. Don't turn on the light from tho bathtub. · Don't leave your medicine chest open. Don't smoke in bed. Don't use a rocking; chair for a ladder. There are several others that apply more to summer than to . winter. These emphasize that "safe at home" la just a phrase.

Somebody once remarked. Th» bed Is not green even 11 you are." Tells Story on Self' I can tell one story on myself ancnt not leaving tho toys 'on tho steps. There Is a codicil to that which Is "Always turn on the light when you intend to go down the collar steps." Well, I open tha presses to add that Uut night, right after I wrote that good advice, I took a load of books In my arms, piled go high that I couldn't see over them, started down the cellar ateps In the dork, stepped on a piece of fire wood, and nearly became your 'late correspondent". So, If you really Intend to get any good out of this health advice, do as I «ay and not as I do. About the medicine closet being open. The idea Is that young children climb up on a «tool and take out the contents of the medicine chest, and swallow uomo poisonous mixture. The real way to bo safe on thla i* to 'say to yourself, "Don't have any poisonous mixtures or medicines In your mcdi- cino closet." What do you want them for? Especially don't have any cathartic pills containing strychnine--tho aloln, strychnine, belladonna pills -- because more children die of strychnine poisoning from swallowing such pills than all other forms of poison put together. The "Don't turn on tho light while standing' in tha bathtub" question wo will take up tomorrow.

PLEASANT until him. another job has been given -© DAY IN WASHINGTON BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, when a second vacancy occurred, lost little time in picking the man who had been runner-up, so to speak, on the first occasion. It is a sign, moreover, of the confidence which the President has in Homer Cummings, his Attorney General. In a sense, the incident represents a triumph for the Attorney General over those on the left wing side, who have been sniping at him and trying to force him out of the Cabinet by spreading rumors that he is in presidential disfavor, «!tc. People who say such things about the Attorney General do not know Mr. Hooscvclt himself. · There is one quality which the President has nnd which may not often be emphasized because It is one of those intangible things which ore not demonstrable in words, but he has a loyalty to Ills political friends which is steadfast and unbudging. He has known Homer Cummings since the days of Woodrow Wilson. Mr. Roosevelt does-not forget that, before 1932, when there was a sharp division Inside the party on his own candidacy, it was Homer Cummings who unhcsi- tantingly lined up with him and bore some of the brunt of the battle that gave him his real opportunity. Mr. Cummings is not the type of lawyer who has specialized in constitutional law to the same extent as had his Solicitor General. Hia has been a broader training as a legal consultant. Hence, he never permitted his own name to be brought forward for the Supreme Court, and it s a mark of the man's unselfsh- ncss and devotion to his chief that he could so earnestly recommend Ills own subordinate for a promotion that most every lawyer In the land would give a great deal to win. Mr. Cummings, on the other hand, remains one of the most valued of Cabinet officers because he is of the type o£ general adviser who is most helpful to the President. Himself schooled in conservative doctrine, he has never failed to proclaim the Woodrow Wilson liberalism. The guidance of Mr. Cummings, whose heart really beats stronger for a constructive New Deal than most of the left wingers, becomes more esscnlial to a busy President in times like these than at any other era in the Administration. There has been talk of the Attorney General's retirement to go into private practice. No doubt, with his knowledge of public affairs today, he would find such practice both interesting and lucrative. But, so as Is .known, the Attorney General has not indicated any desire to leave here, and, if he docs some day, it will Lc of,his own free will and not at the behest of the left wing conspirators who arc trying to force Assistant Attorney General Jackson into the political limelight. They run the risk of overplaying their hand with a man of the strong friendships which Mr. Roosevelt forms for those who have stuck'by him through thick and thin. Incidentally, it there is any attack on Stanley Reed's appointment, it will come from the some political group on the left wing which is trying to drive Mr. Roosevelt farther and father toward radicalism, the object of such a flurry being to commit the President toward the appointment of :i truly political radical to the next vacancy on the Supreme Court. Public hearings are to be held on the confirmation of Stanley Rccd. It is to be a custom now. Senator Bridges of New Hampshire has a resolution to make open hearings compulsory before any Supreme Court appointment Is confirmed in the future. He believes that Charman Ashurst of the Senate Judiciary Committee has recognized tho principle of the resolution by announcing there will be hearings on the Reed appointment. But what the New Hampshire senator wants to accomplish is to make it a permanent rule and not subject to the discretion of whoever happens to oe chairman of the Judiciary Committee in the future. Mr. Bridges deserves commendation tor his persistence. The open hearings would have UNIONTOWN, Jan. 18.--Deprived of transportation facilities, through failure of a bus driver to secure a license for $45, more than a score of school students, 'mostly girls, were compelled to hitch-hike or secure other means of coming to Un- lontown. Several remained at home. An equal number ill living here, temporarily. The trouble began when the State Hcvcnue Department decreed that Sheldon Randlct, of near Farmington, who was transporting the students to Unlontown, came under the class of a common currier and should pay $172 for a license. Had he been given a contract by the members of the school board his license fee would be $45. That amount was sent with Randlet's application and refused. Unwilling to pay the difference, the bus driver discontinued the service, beginning Monday. This placed the students in a difficult situation which resulted in .some being I brought to Uniontown in private cars, others "thumbing" their way and still others remaining at home. At the suggestion of the school board n public, meeting of. parents j was held Monday night in the Bethel j Brethren Church. About 75 were present Of that number only 15 opposed the contract which would result in the expenditure of about $150 a month. The majority of the board favored such a contract In order to have the school service resumed. It was asserted that tho-first year 60 per cent of the cost would be paid by the Department of Education ! and the second year about 85 per I cent. i 10--All persons expelled from tho party must be given jobs within 15 days. This resolution was passed at a plenary meeting of the Communist party ccntrul committee, Russias most powerful body . I And this, it was believed, ended a purge which has continued almost without Interruption for a little more than throe years. There were under currents of opposition to Josef Stalin's regime.In Russia, led by followers of Leon Trotsky arid others, toward the end of 1934. They aroused no attention. Then on December 1, in the former Smolny Institute which is now the headquarters of the Leningrad branch of the Communist party, Sergei Klrow, Communist chief for the Leningrad area, was shot dead by young Leonid Nicolniev. The real motive for the murder remained clouded. But it was held that "enemy" elements were really responsible. Kirov was a close friend of Stalin and a member of the political bureau of the Communist party. Within four days of the assassination 66 persons, including a woman, were shot. Month by month the purge extended its scope- until it reached every branch of public life throughout : thc 8,000,000 square miles of Russia. Men who for a generation had been high jn the leadership of the Communist party fell victim; some of the country's highest and admittedly most brilliant army officers were executed as traitors. It had been hoped that the purge could be ended to coincide with the first election, last month, under the new constitution. But now, it was indicated, the purge was really end- Ing.

The hearings this week will necessarily be rather perfunctory, now that Stanley Reed has been chosen. For he has the overwhelming support of the memembers of both parties in the Senate. The idea back of .the Bridges proposal, however, is sound and will be invaluable in appraising' appointments to the Supreme Court, for It looks as if Mr. Roosevelt may have more opportunities to (111 vacancies on the bench--due to the new retirement law--than any President of the United States has had in a long lime.
