Quins Tell the World They're Two Years Old Copyright, 1036, NBA Hcrvlcn, Inc United Chinese War on Japanese Is Parley Aim : SHANGHAI, June 4 (XI 1 )—Emissaries "of the Chinese Canton government sped northward today, official sources declared, to discuss with Nanking government officials proposals for a united Chinese war against "Japanese aggression." Sources close to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, overlord of the Nanking administration, said the commander was awaiting elaboration of Canton proposals against Tokyo. Chiang Kai-Shek himself declined to comment on the situation. The proposal for a union of the two Chinese governments, reported by Japanese sources yesterday from Canton, revived the nation's attention. Contradictory statements fro m various sources continued to perplex Chinese and foreigners, particularly assertions 250,000 southwest troops had marched into Hunan province, (Some Japanese sources asserted the military movement was not designed against Japan but was the beginning of a Chinese civil war involving the Canton and Nanking armies,) 96-Year Old War Vet Is Father of A Girl This Time NEW BEKN, N. C., June 4. (/Pi- George Isaac Hughes, the 96-year- old Confederate veteran who amazed the medical world when he became a father 17 months ago, was all smiles again today—this lime it's a girl. By the light of a crude, old- fashoned kerosene lamp in, a small room of their little home near here, a second child was born last night to his 28-year old wife, Libby Hill Hughes, whom Hughes married two and a half years ago. f-'it.looks like we might raise a pretty big family after all," Hughes- commented. "You know I've been saying all along I'd live to be 110 '"years old—that's how long my grandmother, Katie Tillman, lived, and I don't look so old yet, do I?" Hughes is vigorous for his age. His faculties are clear and he does odd jobs, chopping wood and keeping a garden. "I'm glad it was a girl," he said. •"I thought it would be all the time. I wanted a girl because the first one was a boy. Libby wanted a girl too." The Hughes' first-born, a lusty lad of 17 months now, is walking about and is fast learning the intricacies of speech. He was named Franklin Roosevelt Hughes. INJURIES FATAL SANANGELO, June 4 (ff) — Bruce M.

NEW YORK, June 4 M') —Hot weather costumes have hit a new ilgh on the thermometer of chic. For those blistering days in town when the sun scorches city streets American designers have created the smartest outfits the fashion world las seen. They arc clean cut and formal enough to be smart, sheer enough to be cool, and lightened with smart white touches which keep them looking crisp at all times. Steel gray and ice white is the newest combination, but navy blue, and sea foam while, forest green or wood brown and daisy white, or ilack and chalk while also are big favorites. A two-piece suit or a frock topped by a jacket or cape make the smartest effects accented by accessories which harmonize. Materials Vary. Navy blue and black organza net, dotted swiss, chiffon and sheer silk all are used to make simple frocks with fairly high necklines and short or long sleeves finished with snow white collars and cuffs of organdy or pique. With them go matching short jackets (trim and filled or loose and swagger) or waistlength capes. Prints with new smart palterns which are a decided variation from the old flower design are much in vogue. White or confetti colored coin dots, crowns, seashells, stars and animals stamp many of the new prints. Monotone silhouette prints —while on copper, wine or navy— and two toned checks also are seen Some are accented by a third color as a white crepe printed in black asters and worn with a wine rec crushed chiffon girdle. Suits Inipor.ant. Suits of cotton pique, rayon suiting or "non-crushable" linen are other big favorites. Often the> are worn without blouses. Accessories put • the finishing touches to the outfits. Nettie Rosenstein turns out smart town togs foi hot days by adding flower toques boutonnieres and suede gloves al of the same shade—a white carnation toque and gloves with a putty crepe flecked with while and rec carnation accessories with blue. Other designers like big hats— wide brimmed flat crowned white or black straws and gloves to matcl with the ensembles. Slip-cover handbags, whose detachable washable cotton cover;; come in colors to larmonize with any costume, are another accessory which has I'ounr ;reat favor.
