LITICS BY BYRON PRICE, Chief of Bureau, The Associated Press, Washington. The quiet pace set by the new congress during its first weeks has caused much surprise in Washington, and some grumbling among the members. Perhaps this is partly due to a state of mind. For upward of two years the capital has been living in an endless whirl of activity. The last previous congress probably established a record by the breathless speed of its legislative actions. Many of the advance prophecies pictured the present congress as going its predecessor one better. It was to be a pell-mell performance, from the start. The psychological build-up was so tremendous that what actually has happened thus far appears tame and uninteresting by comparison. What with plain and fancy oratory about everything except the current issues, three-day recesses, and other delays and postponements, it took, both the senate and house a couple of weeks to get down to actual debate on concrete legislative proposals. And even then, the debate avoided most of the things Washington really is thinking about. The house took up one of the drier appropriation bills. The senate passed by the whole list of domestic problems and resurrected the old dispute about the world court. Too Much 'News.' Various explanations have been offered. One story, about which members of congress are being twitted over the dinner table, is that congress found it couldn't compete on page one with the Hauptmann trial in New Jersey, and decided to hold its fire for a more favorable moment. This jocular imputation is repudiated unanimously by the senators and representatives, albeit they are no strangers, as a class, to the art. and artifices of publicity. A more seriously-urged suggestin is that, with so great an infiltration of new members, the democratic leaders wanted to size up the situation with extreme care before launching on the real business of the session. The threat of stubborn oppostion to the "lump sum" method of appropriating for relief surprised some of Mr. Roosevelt's friends, and led to several conferences and nose- countings. It may have been coincidence, but the unusual period of quiet and caution also coincided with the supreme court's hints that some of the legislation passed by the last cqngress was too sketchily drown'. A combination of various elements may easily have caused the delay, but it unquestionably was accentuated by the fact that under the new Norris amendment this congress was a month behind the previous schedule before it even started. Under thje old arrangement the sessions began in early December. Committees at work during the recess had enough legislation ready to insure a prompt starting of the machinery. Major action began be- fpre the Christmas holidays, and by mid-January, the legislative program usually was well under way. With the new meeting-date after New Year's day, and a none-too- speedy getaway following, mid-January this year sees almost nothing done. At least one who worked and voted for the Norris amendment thinks the later meeting date probably was a mistake, it means in every election year, that members will be later in getting back home, after adjournment, to look after their campaigns. It means in all years another month or so added at the end of the session, in the heat of a Washington summer. So there are grumblings and expressions of impatience, and a lot of members getting out of sorts even before the fun begins. ' That may easily make tilings livelier once the I show actually Jaf sie Daughter Mrs. Ralph Hacker, daughter of Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon, is s;hown entering Huntcrdon county (N.

For Good Cleaning Call J UST - RITC CLEANERS k 108 Cuyler Opposite State Theatre PHONE Residence Phone IK TESTS FEDERAL BUREAU HAS SUGGESTIONS TO AID IN BUYING BY SIGIUB ARNE WASHINGTON (M— Some simile tests of value which the housewife can apply when she goes to he store to buy have been com- rjiled by the consumers' divisions of AAA and the NEC. They are designed to show her vhether she is getting her money's worth. For example, is her three •ards of silk really the pure silk ,he wants, or is it part rayon or heavily weighted? Are the sheets -eally linen or do they carry a heavy sizing to make them look hick and feel heavy and durable? To test fabrics, the officials ad- /ise, unravel yarns both crosswise and lengthwise. If two or more inds of fiber have been used, separate them for the test. Apply a lighted match to the ?nds of the yarn. Notice the way in which it burns. Blow out the flame and smell the smouldering yarn. Material which bums easily and ives off a smell like burned paper will be rayon, or one of the vegetable fibers, such as cotton, linen, icrnp or jute. Burn Silk And Wool Cellulose acetate burns a little less readily, and burns black like sealing wax. The ends of the extin- juished cellulose yarns will have lard black globules, and the fumes will have a faint vinegar-like smell. Silk and wool yarns will burn with difficulty and in burning will smell like burned feathers. If the silk is weighted with tin' or lead, ;he metal weighting will not burn, but will leave an ash. When a piece of heavily weighted silk textile is left to burn on a piece of glass or metal it will leave an ash in the form of the material. Material for sheets may be tested at the counter, but the best way is to take a sample home and boil it for half an hour in soapy water. If the material carries a heavy sizing of china clay or starch, the sample will appear flimsy after boiling. The .material sometimes can be tested at the store counter by rubbing vigorously in the hands. The sizing shakes put in the form of white powder and easily is seen on the dark counter. Many Other Tests The label "pre-shrunk," under present practice, merely means the fabric has gone . through some ihrinkage process. It does not guarantee 'there will be ho further shrinkage. Other tests follow: To test bath towels push back the pile with a pin or pen-knife. If the warp threads go "under-one-over one" the towel is low grade. In a better quality towel the threads will pass over-two-under-one, or in some even more complicated weave. To test hosiery stretch the top edge. If it extends to 11 or 12 inches the stocking will wear better than those with less stretch. Check packaged groceries by opening such as contain cereal, spices and spaghetti to see if the fill" is slack. Check the weight and cost of the packaged goods against the same foods bought in bulk. Test stainless steel cutlery by pressure with the blade of a good pocket-knife. The pressure will not scratch cutlery which is of good enough quality to hold & sharp edge. Mrs..
