It all began when IT'S BEEN A GREAT SEASON FOR SKATERS! preme Court. When sen-| Sir Jame g j eanS) English au- ators in committee were questioning him about his attitude toward current issues and constitutional principles, he said: "Some time ago a question arose when members of the Ku Klux Klan attempted to hold a mass meeting and parade in my neighboring city of Boston, •and the officials sought to stop them. "I said of course they were entitled to the rignt of free speech and the right of assembly. Civil liberties mean liberties for thoi.e we like and those we don't like or even detest." It is hardly conceivable that a man of Mr. Frankfurter's culture, profession and race would like those Ku Kluxers. He was putting principal above personal inclination. He was choosing to live- by law rather than by prejudice. And that is what all of us have to do, If we profess democracy and live up to the Constitution in which your national principles are embodied. It isn't really necessarily being noble, either, when we take that attitude. It's merely sensible. For when we deny neighbors' rights, they come right back trying to take our own rights away from us. ITALIAN COAL tority on physics, addresse- ed the English Music Teachers Association and said that, so far as a single piano note was concerned, it made no difference whether the key was struck with an umbrella or Paderewski's finger. The resulting tone would be the same in each case. The musicians with nonsense, retorted "belit- W J Lll injnoni0^1 w^». « j tling," "let Sir James stick The principal products of Sardinia, says the encyclopedia, are olive oil, wine, tobacco, wheat, cattle and salt. A new and important product may now be added to the list—coal. Mussolini boasts proudly, "Beneath this soil the immense wealth of Italy's self-sufficiency of coal, in no way inferior to to his science" and other less scientific comments. Now an American physicist supports Sir James. Abram Chasins, American composer-pianist, says that the English musicians are speaking from sentiment rather than scientific fact. He assisted in the experiments on which Sir James' statement was based. "In these experiments, exhaustive tests showed conclusively that no single tone could be produced which could not be imitated exactly by maans oi a mechanical striker. Photographic analyses of both tones established the scientific basis for this study. It was found that the 'richness' or 'mellowness' of a tone produced by a novice cannot be improved or altered in any way by a skilled pianist playing the same key on the same piano, unless he chooses to vary the loudness of the tone." At that, we'd rather hear Paderewski than, say, Chamberlain's umbrella in a piano recital. JOBS AND HOMES "The mechanization oi the kitchen touched off this wholesome migration of wo- foreign coal, awaits the miners." A correspondent of the London Times reports that the annual output may soon be 1,600,000 tons of coal suitable for many purposes, including locomotives and coastal steamers. Thus Italy has a new industry. It also has a new city, built on that industry. Mussolini went to Sardinia recently to inspect the first mine . and inaugurate the new town of Carbonia. On a site which a year ago was an abandoned waste there now; stands a town of 12,000 families. Houses are being built rapidly. The place differs from the usual mining town. There are kitchen and flower gardens, ample space between houses, and a center "complete with schools, town , hall, hospital, Fascist headquarters, postoffice, cinema, market and sports grounds." The mines are expected to 'provide work for 15,000 men. Perhaps these glowing reports need to be discount' ed somewhat. There may not be as much coal there • as estimated. Yet the discovery of any coal at all , jwould be a boon to Italy, ''which has always ha'd to Import its coal. , This will be a new blow to the Welch miners, perhaps, but theirs is a prob- u- lorn which already needs .^special "treatment. A facial survey of the iew Congress shows 72 bald "a and only two beards, now the statistical in- preters can get to worft men into business," wi'ites Roger Babson. "It all started in the home, and that is where the battle is the hottest right now. The modern husband must be sensible about the whole problem It is a biological fact tha' a boy and girl may inherii qualities from any brancr of the family tree. The gir may inherit her father's rec hair and his business traits Similarly a boy may have his mother's black hair and her domestic qualities." So the business statistic! suggests that these facts o: life be recognized, and the better earner do the earn ing while the better home maker does the housekeep ing, regardless of tradition The mail could save his dig nity by calling himself a "household engineer." It may work out in thii way in many families. In fact, it is already working out so, as may be seen here and there in any commun ity. Mr. Babson, however like many other detached observers of these chang ing times,- doesn't like tc see husband and wife botl working, except transiently in emergencies. In sue' cases, where the man can support the family, as wel as the wife or better, h would have the wife qui her job. This would serv the double purpose of mak ing normal homes and pro viding more jobs for thos who need them, It seem fair and sensible. fthat. je < Nazis don't seem to g 80 well lately with lr antirSemitlc black- We don't seem able t please those dictatorshi countries at all, so we ma as well quit trying and g our own peculiar way.

RESOLUTION ASKS PROBE OF CONDUCT SECRETARYPERKINS CABINET MEMBER AND TWO OTHERS SUGGESTED FOR IMPEACHMENT TODAY WASHINGTON, Jan. 24. — (IP) —Rep. Thomas (R- NJ) submitted to the house today a resolution directing the judiciary committee to investigate official conduct of Prances Perkins, secre-i tary of labor, with a view 1 to Impeachment. The mesaure also suggested Impeachment of James L. Loughtel- Ing, commissioner of immigration, and Gerald D. Rellly, labor department solicitor. Citing testimony before, a house committee which Investigated un- American activities, Thomas' resolution contended the three "were and arc guilty of high crime and mlsduinouNors In officn" In failing to carry out deportation proceed- ngs against Harry Bridges, west coast CIO leader. Thomas said Miss Perkins, Houghtollng and Reilly had "conspired to defer and to defeat the deportation." Secretary Perkins quickly Issued a statement, declaring she would ask for an immediate hearing to inform the country of the "true facts" in the Bridges case. "I welcome the Introduction of the resolution,' she said, "and shall ask for an immediate hearing before the committee to which it may be referred so that congress, and through It the American public, may bo fully acquainted with tho true facts of tho deportation proceedings in the Bridges case and the reason why they have been held In abeyance temporarily." On motion of Majority Leader Rayburn of Texas, the resolution was referred to the judiciary corn- told reporters he STRIKING BACK H. G. Wells, answering an ttack made on him by an fficial Berlin newspaper, amenta that "social forces re being ruled in Germany y Hitler, who is a certified unatic, and in Italy by Mus- olini, who is a renegade to ocial democracy. Both are reaks who enforce a state f affairs similar to that of he days of the criminal laesars. Hitler has ac- juired a capacity for mak- ng dastardly murder re- emble today's good deed." This is very rough talk, )y a historian, against the leads of governments with vhich Mr. Wells' own government is at peace. But zi and Fascist spokesmen may be said to have "asked for it." And perhaps he author is also trying to strengthen the spine of the British prime minister, lest make further surrend- ALL AMERICAN RATES ers. TOP SPEED Airplanes have almost reached their maximum aeight and speed, accord- ng to William F. Durand of Stanford University, a eading expert in this line. They have soared 56,000 feet high and may not be able to climb much beyond 60,000 feet, which is a little nore than 11 miles. Call ;he ceiling 12 miles. The speed record, made by an Italian seaplane, is now 440 miles, an hour. Prof. Durand thinks 500 miles is about the limit. And for such height and speed, nearly everything else has to be sacrificed. It seems to a normal person as if those extremes ought to be enough-for anybody. No one can tell, though, what the natural limitations are. A hundred years ago scientists were saying that railroad trains would never go faster than 85 miles an hour, even if It were possible mechanically, because "flesh and blood couldn't^ stand it." MOST STRENUOUS MAYOR One of the practical fruits of the recent Pan-American conference is the steamship rate reduction fo'r students, teachers and professors traveling in Latin-America. If this is not a direct outgrowth of the gathering at Lima, at least there is some connection. The announcement made on Jan. 12 by Sumner Welles of the.State Department at Washington indicates that four steamship companies — the American Republic Line, the Grace Line, the Furness Prince Lines and the Mississippi Shipping Company — are cutting rates 50 per cent for the groups mentioned, traveling either y a v between the various American republics. If this does not adequately, cover the field, perhaps other lines will follow suit. It is a peculiarly good time in world history for such a development. Cur own people may now very properly travel southward, and our Central and South American friends may travel northward, without any of the perils and inconveniences they would meet with in Europe and Asia. • It would be a grand thing if the rates should be lowered also for other groups. Perhaps that will come later. MYSTERY DEEPENS AS TO CAUSE FALL BIG FLYING BOAT SKIPPER OF CAVALIER SAYS ICE CONDITIONS DID NOT FORCE PLANE DOWN mittee. Rayburn would "leave to the judgment and good sense" of Chairman Sumners (D-Tex) any action to be taken by that committee.

Ncal, who is now representing the Federal Informational Service department, will conduct an Institute of public Information on tho social security program of tho fed- oral government on Monday evening, January 30 at 8 o'clock.

The figure Is based on records In tho comptroller's dcpartme..'.. Gov, W Lee O'Daniel, complain- < Ing at 75-ccnt and $1 meals on * expense accounts passe • to him for approval, has suggested 35-cent meals and less expensive hotel rooms for employees. Meals during the fiscal year ending Aug. 31 totalled approximately $357,000 and rooms about $280,000. Tho maximum allowed employees for this purpose Is $4 a day. Tho average t-tpenso account runs about $3.7S. The governor said ar i ngements might be made whereby cost of hotel rooms would not e so high to state employees. Officials estimate the average room costs employees $2 or less a nl&'it. If the room cost was limited to $1 an Tieals to $1.05 a 'ay, th," savings per year would mount t about $285,000. The cost of gov- I crnment the last fiscal year amounted to more than $157,000,000. This ratio Is .0018 per cent. "Employees might get along for J a few days on a $1.05 limit per day on meals," said one official who would not permit s name to bo used.

R. Alderson, skipper of the flying boat, said Ice conditions "definitely" did not force the craft down at sea. "The cause is still a complete mystery to me," he said. "We were equipped to deal with lee, but at no time did I have the slightest fear of Ice formation— either on the wlnga or clogging the carburetors. "I have flown through far worse conditions. The whole thing is simply baffling." Captain Alderson restricted his comments to events after the 19- ton .luxury airliner hit the water Saturday, about 200 miles off the Maryland coast, en route from New York to Bermuda. Tho ten survivors, five men and !Ivo women, were refreshed by a long night's sleep after their 10- hour ordeal of clinging to a frail chain of life preservers in the Gulf Stream until rescued by the tanker Esso Baytown. The three victims, all men, died of exposure or injuries, he said. The survivors told how they sang Speaking of the fan c y new term "autarchy," the real autarch is Mother—but the correct term for that would probably be "matriarchy." It is fortunate for Mussolini and for Italy that very few of those 10,000,000 Italians living abroad will return. • Maybe the idea of Them Hats is that even homely girls look nice when they take 'em off.

With it he can keep in touch with the police department and hear all the police alarms. He can also direct affairs at City .Hall while he is on his way to it or away from it. He can keep contact with the city radio station, where it is possible to ' arrange telephone conversations with anyone the Mayor wishes to reach.

Of the five men and five women survivors only the widows of two of the victims—Mrs. Donald Miller of Lincoln, Neb ,' and Mrs. John Gordon Noakes of New York -showed evidence of strain. Mrs. Noakes fainted. She was taken to a private hospital. The others refused medical treatment. The survivors' Jubilation on their arrival was reflected In the faces of the members 'of the Baytown's crew who rowed a lifeboat to their aid after they heard cries In the Stygian night. "We were without stars, moon or sextant—In complete darkness," said Stanley Taylor, a seaman who stood In the lifeboat's bow. "And then the whole crowd of them started singing. We listened and the sound guided us to the spot," First Mate Olaf Anderson aald: "I heard a woman's voice say 'Thank God' as we came up to them. They started to sing again. I wag too busy to notice what it was they were singing. Something religious. I don't know the name."
