CUTAWAY FROM PALM BEACH
By Betty Brown
We may not go to Palm T3each
ourselves, but we may let our eyes
linger on this Palm Beach suit, be
cause what is worn in Palm Beach
today will be worn in Chicago next
spring.
This man-fashion little cutaway
comes from the studio of Marguerite
of the Fashion Art League of Amer
ica. It is made of biege color tweed.
The long-skirted coat fits rather
closely, and is cut away to show the
pleated tunic of the skirt and the odd
little vest of moleskin. The hat is
black satin trimmed with silver rib
bon and a little "curtain" oT black
maline.
POLITICAL GOSSIP MAY LEAD
TO PROBE OF G. O. P. FUND
Did prominent Democrats, headed
by John P. Hopkins, contribute to"
the G. 0. P. campaign fund in the
late campaign?
Did other rich and, prominent men
and corporations' contribute to a fund,
that hasn't been and won't be report
ed to federal authorities-?
There's gossip loose in the loop
which may lead to federal investiga
tion of the G. 0. P. campaign fund.
The-story runs that big contributions
were made to the Lowden state cam
paign fund which were not reported
to the government, although used
just as much to help Hughes as to
help Lowden and the Cook county
Republidan candidates.
And part of the story is that John
P. Hopkins, former mayor and one of
the big bosses of the local Sullivan
organization, contributed $20,000 to
this campaign. Whether it was an
individual contribution by Hopkins,
or he was acting for himself and
some of his intimate political pals,
hasn't developed.
Some take it to rilean that the Sul
livan wing of the Illinois Democracy
will control the minority sate pat
ronage during Lowden's administra
tion and hftve the inside track for
federal patronage at the same time
through the friendly offices of Pres
idential Secretary Tumulty, who is
said to be a warm friend of Roger
Sullivan.
Whether the government can force
G. O. P. managers to reveal the
names of contributors to the Lowden
fund may depend upon whether this
fund was used to help Hughes and
Republican national candidates as
well as Republican state" and county
candidates.
John P. Hopkins is a prominent
Democrat and was manager of Roger
Sullivan's campaign when Roger ran
foy U S. senator.
