Privately some of them who face re-election do not k n o w whether to make their t'.ampJiigTis ou tho "Administration Record," as is the custom in off-year elections, or u soft-pedal i h a t aspect. This hesitancy Is in itself significant. They re-ally do .not know whether Mr. Hoover has grown strongor or weaker with public opinion--they frankly aro looking for the next fow months to answer their queries and remove thoi.r fioubts. To understand Mr. Hoover's first: year, it is essential to divide bis efforts Into three separate aspects-- tho jvolitical, the economic arid the administrative. As a politicaJ factor, Mr. Hoover has been least effective, and it. fcas given him more sleepless nights than anything else. His relations with Congress havo be-on inept. Ho has not beeu able to concentrate his strength in tho Seuaito though he holds his own in tho House of Representatives. The Senate cleavages aro, howev-or, not ?·£ Mr. Hoover's .making H-e found them wh-en ho entered the Presidency. He has not discovered how t-o assert his influence in the upjer house effectively. On th-e economic side, Mr. Hoover has teen as umial unspectacular and as u.'iiml thero is a differenco of aptu- ion a.s lo tbe wisdom of bin policies. More poople will be found, however, who t h i n k tho Hoovor conf-er-erice. oil December sav-ed tho country from a gravo depression than who argue- ho should havo acted more promptly in the October crisis. An an administrator, Mr. Hoover has prJUod himself ou his appointments · oa the whole have leen te- coivv-d with approbation Inside and outside of Congress. There is an eflic'.eucy iu government (Uypo-rLmeuUi and a team-work which will naStural- ly bd croditeil to t.h» Cbiot Executive.

I think that such a conviction is tlia background for tho 1'nterest whown by the Pmsident of the United States In p l a n n i n g the White Houee conference for child health -protection. Its purpose JB to assemble and make unablg all the- information there is that will lead to the development of a higher ' manhood In tho days ahead. I can conceive of no undertaking more w o r t h y of tho concerted effort of all those who aro called to its standard.

' - n s i u ' n o l t o Rector Cunningham Thinks Organized Churches Are Doomed Thf probability that, organized churche* on a national scale ara doomed is pointed out by Gonild A. Cunnningham, r«K:tor of St. John's Church of Stamford, Connecticut, writing in the current issue of The Churchman. Mr. Cunningham doubts whether a upedal expression of religion in the form of churuboe will long be neces- nary. There will bo, perhaps, In our, he thinks, groat cathedral-like structures in which many different ra-iMi will preach and lead in worship of many kinds. Certainly, he says, tho church as an assistant, to the police force or as a social club for the «ulo]«;i.'.ent is not representing religion as Jesus glirnpeed it. Charging that the church has lost the respect of practically ell the educated leaders of our day, TJie Church- j man artlo.le continues, "If the intelli-j Kent citizen is to have a religion it behooves ; -hn ProteBtant churche« to bestir themselves with something more armsting than mtesionai-y propaganda. Union of Prof.efitanism in it- Belf will accomplieh little or nothing. We must fftoe thq fact that Chrtetcn- dom is involved in an actual crisis in theology ns'well as In method, "Religion has entered an entirely now day, as have science and philosophy. It must, be redefined in tho terms of a now faith in man's own greatness and responsibility. Today, the only fixed thing about truth ia that It, fa never fixed. By experimental combination oi force* new truths tire created by man, who lioe for the Hint time an actual responsibility ami functional dignity. Religion will no longer be a collection of revealed truth, but a force- which is reo.1 only because it, produces' certain results/' BUYING FABRICS FOR HOME USE Whan we home makers go to make our purchases, hew much real information lo we have · regarding the various qualities of th-e articles offered us? How many of our choices are m a d e on the basis o! (Kvme gayly colored ad-vertiemerit, which after all gaw, us only an tnspirwi feeling and really told us nothing? How often do wo base our selection en'.irely on the prices asked. In other words, bow many purchaser are sheer guesses ? If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that practically all of tlvirn are made In one of these ways, vrltca Huth O'Brien, chief, textile division, Federal Bureau of Home Econon ics, in the United SUites Daily. Thta ie particularly t r u e of, textile materials. Time was, when tho nura- her of different fabrics oa the market j was so em-all, aiul out experience J with them so intimate, twit wo really eoald jitdgo quality. Bu today, there are literally thousanls of different kind.s of materials on 1.10 dry goocia counters. Most of them HATO hem christened fancy names which me-n v«ry little to ve. Often they are made of now fibres about which wo k n o w nothing. How much informaU 3n about al! tbeso can Uie ·consumer gain, by even the most diligent efforts. 1 Very littlo, we are forced to admit. She can feel the fabr c, pull it between her hamie, and isk tho clerk some questions. Usually about all he can do is to aestire her that lite customers have not complained about the material. This doos not help very much.

Sixty Stores In Nine Counties of Pen n sylvan la. msi'ny of us forget when and wber-a wo purchased the fabric that faded oi wore out so soon. Wo iven forget whoeo product it was. However, there are some of u« whJ believe that, it this important business of home making is to be carrieo' on KuccesHftilly, it must flnst of ali be based on sound business principles And no buslnese succeeds unless iti purchasing ie done intelligently. -This means it must be done ou tbe basis « facts and not by guess. For example, when the G-overnmen! buy« nhceifl for the Government hospitals, definite specifications as t-c thre;ul count, tensile strength, welghi o.nd a m o u n t of finishing material, ar sot up, and the sheeting fnraishe* must, comply with these (specifications Wouldn't it help us, if, when deciding between three or tour different brands of -sheets at the dry good« counter, -wt cotih! know those facts about eacl and t h u s be able to determine which one Ixmt serves our purpose? · Some people in«ist that, women wili not take the trouble to learn t.h meaning of t e r m s like tensile strength, thread count, and such. And of course, if -we are to discuss thi oualHtee of various articles intelli. pently, we must know tbe word* which describe them accurately. But It is my experience that we wil' oil learn even very technical word* If we are intc-reeted in the subject. 1 And women are certainly interested nowadays in doing more efficient pur. chasing. I believe that the consumers of thi* country can become ue well informwi as any purchasing- asent. Havlnjj lived through the period in which women have acquired a working knowledge of such terms as calorics, vitamin, and proteins, I have faith that they can learn the significance- ol any descriptive terms necessary to a working knowledge of fabrics aped, ficatioiis. A whole h-crios of programs coulo bo planned in which its varJoua aspects are considered.
