I THE SHAMOKIN DISPATCH, STTAHTOt.-txt twenAv twtvtvv!. "MAVrrr j?t193S fAGHE SETBIf SPRING MODES ARE SHOWN IN SJYLE REVUE Exposition of Fashions at Capitol Thetare One of Most Elaborate and Striking Ever Presented Here On of the most elaborate anl striking apparel revues ever presented in this city opened yesterday afternoon at the Capitol thea-fot under the auspices of Worth's fifc. Exclusive Ladles' Shop, Ben Hirsch Shoe Store, Clarkaon's Drug Store and the French Beauty Salon, under the personal supervision of Kiva Hoffman, noted style expert and a former Hollywood makeup artist. The smartest and most distinctive fashion notes emphasized this spring were displayed in the apparel shown, which included the newest styles for morning, afternoon, evening wear, lingerie, bathing suits and footwear, all of which may be secured at Worth's Inc. and Ben Hirsch Shoe Store respectively. A group of attractive local models presented the fashions for Worth's Inc. and Ben Hirsch Shoe Store. The natural beauty of the models was enhanced by the correct makeup and head-dress arranged for them by the French Beauty Salon. An unusual feature of the revue was an act entitled "From Dawn to Evening", in which, with the assistance of a model, "Miss Utah", Mr. Hoffman cleverly demonstrated the art of makeup, showing how a correct makeup enhances a woman's natural beauty. "Miss Utah" appeared on the stage in a striking flesh negligee absolutely devoid of piikeup. Mr. Hoffman applied the Oressary cosmetics for evening wear, the effect being beautiful. He used Elizabeth Arden beauty preparations from Clarkson's Drug Store. Miss Utah then put on a striking black evening gown with a black velvet cape trimmed with white fox fur. The classic simplicity of its line make it very smart. There was an unusual scenic background of a blue wavery effect for the first two numbers which showed the latest style in lounging pajamas, bathing suits, and negligees. For the afternoon and evening modes the soene was changed. An interesting feature was the opening in which was seen the footwear. A beautiful bridal scene brought the show to a close. The bride was attractively gowned in white satin, and lace of princess lines, whose very simplicity made it outstanding. Her veil, cap shape and with a long train, was of beautiful Alencon lace and she carried a lovely bridal bouquet. Accompanying the bride were bridesmaids, two of whom were dressed in embroidered blue organdy with contrasts of pink and two pink organdy with contrasts of blue. There were two showings of these interesting fashions yesterday, one at 4 o'clock and one at 9 o'clock. Xiy will be repeated today and to-nrfcrow. Thi3 review is in addition tSTthe regular screen bill featuring Jack Buchanen In "Magic Night". All the garment used in this style show are from Worth's Inc. regular stock. Legislative Group Continued From Page On Discontinuance of the collection of statistics on fires by the Bureau of Fire Protection was recommended in the state police department. In the department of revenue, It was recommended that the state highway patrol be transferred to the state police, the publicity director be abandoned and the advertising of the mercantile tax list be discontinued. The department of mines would be made self-sustaining by imposing an inspection charge of three mills per ton. The committee opposed the taxing over of the remaining 53,000 miles of township roads aS suggested by Governor Pinchot, but approved the governor's recommendation of $104,000,000 for the department during the 1933-35 blen- provided revenues as estl- led at present are received. Jnder the salary reduction pro posal, each official and employe would be allowed a $750 exemption and would receive a 20 per cent, cut on the difference between the present salary and $750. For example a person who now receives $1,800 per year, would receive a cut of 20 per cent, of $1,050, the difference between $1,800 and $750, or a cut of $210. This would make the salary $1,590. This salary cut would affect ail perir affiliated with the state government but the committee pointed out in its message to the Assembly that the $8,000,000 would be reached only if present officials whose salaries are fixed by law accept voluntary cuts during their present terms. In addition to the general salary cut for Judges, the committee also suggested that the per diem pay for traveling Judges be reduced from $30 to $15, and that their traveling expenses be limited to ten cents per mile. No new taxes are propoaed but Increases in fees and some new fees are suggested with an estimated revenue of $1,749,000. All of the recommendations of the .sterling committee will be embod-C In House bills, some twenty-five it which are ready for introduction, Philip Sterling, of Philadelphia, chairman of the committee, announced. The committee will endorse eny bills now in assembly which cover any part of its program. Although tnere was no word to the effect. It is understood bills for abandonment of the Shamokin and Coaldale State Hospitals are Included In the twenty-five or more that have already been prepared for introduction into the House. Governor Pinchr.t, in his budget message, proposed a reduction of $34,000,000 in the cost of the state government for the next two years. The $13,251,054 saving proposed by Sterling includes $11,501,264 In appropriation reductions beyond the governor's proposals and $1,749,790 in Increased revenues by new fees and fee increases. The state appropriation for the Shamokin State Hospital for the past blennlum was $213,000 a cut of approximately $20,000 below the appropriation of the two previous years. The cost of operating the hospital during the past year was remarkably low $3.23 per patient day. Originally built for 45 patients In 1912 and intended primarily as a place where Injured miners and mill workers could obtain treatment and rest free of charge, the hospital has shown a remarkable growth. Its elimination would manifest an untold hardship upon the populace of Shamokin, Mount Caarmel and the neighboring towns and rural area. A total of 82,854 patients had been treated at the hospital up to January 7, the twenty-first anniversary of the institution. AT THE SHAMOKIN STATE HOSPITAL VISITING HOURS Monday, Wednesday and Friday. to 7:10 p. m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 1:M to i:N p. m. No viaitinf hours Sunday. Admitted E. H. Deibler, Shamokin, abdominal. William Shaffer, Shamokin, abdominal. Mrs. Clara Gebhard, Snyder-town, nose. Mrs. Margaret Marietta, Marlon Heights, abdominal. Veronica Lysyla, Shamokin, abdominal. Foster Shroyer, Bear Valley, abdominal. Court's Opinion Continued From Pago On she had joined with Kieselfskle in plotting the crime, had taken a hammer with her to bed and as her husband was sleeping struck him over the head with a hammer; that when the blows did not prove of sufficient power to render the man unconscious and as he arose and was putting on his trousers she took the hammer in both hands and wielded it with all strength; of how she had assisted in dragging Stankavage to the edge of the bed to permit Kieselfskie to assist in pounding him to death. Citing the law as upheld by the state supreme court, that where two persons join in vicious assault, both are equally guilty of the consequences. The woman's latest averrment that she did not strike any of the fatal blows is merely a post-trial statement in an effort to save herself and docs not bear out her previous confession and statements. There is no new testimony of merit in the application for a new trial and the court holds that there is no after-discovered evidence as the law requires. Everything presented in the application for a new trial was known to Mrs. Stankavage at the time of her trial and cannot be considered in the light of after-discovered evidence. The court accordingly refused a new trial and the woman's fate now rests with the state board of pardons. Bill Falls Continued From Pr One Under the terms of the Schwartz bill, outdoor sports would be legalized on Sunday between 2 P. M., and 6 P. M., under a local license system. Modificationists believed they had made it as mild as possible. It provided for local option, or home rule, thru the license system. Municipal governing bodies could have refused to Issue license and thus prevent the games. Three Democratic senators voted for the bifl and the other four voted tn the negative. Twenty-one Republicans voted affirmatively and 22 were opposed. Senator Snyder, Lehigh Democrat, told the Senate he was convinced the bill should be defeated. "We cannot follow the 'gic that because a law Is unpopular It should be repealed," the senator declared. "I also doubt that Its repeal will aid youth. The question of religious worship should be left entirely up to the Individual. I base my ntire objection on the making of money on Sunday."
