The Locomotive Engineer leans out of his ca'o and smiles with the miles today. Every whip of the wind is a soft curl of hair kissing him reverently. Each waving hand along the right-of-way is the confiding fingers of a little girl who hung to his coat pocket when he dressed her, as 435 other children were dressed with warm garb in the 1933 Clothe a Child campaign of The Indianapolis Times. The Lady Bowler feels the trust ing. grubby hand of the boy she clothed as she swings her ball for a ten-strike. She smiles, too. Records Are Broken And all the town is Heart Town today, for the Clothe a Child cam paign broke all records for dressing children of the city’s unemployed. Telephone operators, clerks, doc tors, lawyers, business men, insur ance companies, fraternities, sorori ties, stenographers, all men and women with hearts even on slashed salaries—let a little child lead them, as did the girl of the Engineer and the girl of the Lady Bowler, to the campaign’s new rec ord in one of the toughest years of the depression. It is estimated that 8,000 persons, Including dancers of the city w'ho attended the Indiana Roofs Clothe a Child dance, went down into the homes where rags WERE worn and ARE hot now, to make a boy or girl happy on Christmas day. Approximately $4,350 was expend ed in clothing the 436 children. Receipted in Ful! But the money cost, the time spent outfitting them, taking them from every sector of the city in cars to stores and returning them to homes, has been paid in full. The Locomotive Engineer, the Lady Bowler, the Telephone Opera tor, will tell you that “PAID” was stamped as the new clothing straightened shoulders stooped from hopelessness and poverty. They'll tell you of wondrous-eyed girls who gazed at the pile of pov erty’s garb at their feet, looked at their new coats, smoothed their dresses, stiff in newness, and ex claimed, “Gee, I never had every thing new all at one time before.” Classrooms of the city schools after the New Year will take on a sprightly air wherever a Clothe a Child boy or girl studies his lessons. Milk for Year And there’s one Clothe a Child boy who will drink milk throughout the year for his undernorished body, because a Doctor donor of Clothe a Child went into his home. And there’s another lad who weekly will receive $2 from the anonymous donor who dressed him. Telephone operators of the Lincoln office led the Clothe a Child list by clothing twenty children. City bowling leagues, the majority from Pritchett alleys, clothed twen ty-one children. The Indiana Roof’s dance gave 1,800 persons an opportunity to dress forty-five chil dren. Mastny & Cos., commission merchants, with eight children, the Paint, Oil and Varnish club, and the American Business Club with five children each were other high donors. Thanks for All The Indianapolis Times wishes it could thank each individual donor, and each group of donors, person allv. for making the 1932 Clothe a Child campaign the most successful since the drive's inception. Community Raid relief agencies, the social service department of the school board, too. deserve our -thanks" for aid in finding the city's worthy, needy children. But the bill is paid in full. You've your receipt and all is well in Heart Town, for today the wind carries a soft curl's kiss to a Loco motive Engineer and the feel of a grubby hand to a Lady Bowler.

They say it will upset the balance of power in the far east. They assert we have no right to pull up stakes. Others predict Japan will gobble up the islands as soon as we leave; that we will "lose face’’ in the Orient: that we will cripple our navy by de priving it of a base in the west ern Pacific; that it, will deal a blow at our own foreign commerce, etc. Be that as it may, the prob lem of the Philippines is of interest to every American citi zen.

NDIANAPOLIS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1932 NORRIS ACTS FOR SPEED ON BEER ISSUE Calls Judiciary Committee Today to Consider House Bill. DRYS MAP BATTLE Senators Are Convinced That Hoover Veto of Bill ,1s Likely. BY LYLE C. WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 26.—Chair man George W. Norris of the sen ate judiciary committee summoned senators to interrupt their holiday today to consider the house 3.2 per cent beer bill. Norris said if no quorum could be had for a committee meeting today, he would summon another meeting later in the week. The house an|| senate end their brief Christmas recess Tuesday. Norris, veteran progressive Re publican, has been a life-long dty. He bolted President Herbert Hoover during the campaign to support Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt, but accepted only half of the wet Democratic platform. He favors immediate modification of the Volstead act to legalize 3.2 per cent beer, but opposes repeal of the eighteenth amendment. Drys Welcome Procedure Norris complains there is no justi fication for the Democratic plan to refer beer to the finance committee after the judiciary committee has passed on its constitutionality, but he will not attempt to upset that program. Senator Hiram Bingham ''Rep., Conn.) was defeated last week in an effort to obtain immediate sen ate consideration of beer. The sen ate refused to overturn the Demo cratic plan to have the finance committee pass on revenue phases of the bill. Drys welcome the two-committee path by which beer must approach the senate. There is developing an organized filibuster of undisclosed scope. In a short session required to ap prove eleven routine appropriation bills, the filibuster field is unlimited. A few' men could stave off beer all winter if they W'ere determined and possessed strong lungs. “I w'ould prefer to have the en tire committee consider this beer bill rather than to refer it to a sub committee,” Norris said today. “I believe that procedure w'ould expedite action on beer.” Fear Hoover Veto Senators acquainted with White House sentiment are convinced that President Hoover would veto a 3.2 per cent modification of the Vol stead act. All agree neither lame duck house of congress could muster s! two-thirds vote to legalize beer over a veto. But after March 4. a Democratic congress and President are pledged to immediate beer. It is safe to predict that steins will be legal for the hot month beer season. Senator Tom Connally (Dem., Tex.), and some others of his party are balking at modification in ad vance of repeal. Connally said he believed 3.2 per cent beer would be unconstitutional and that he would vote against it until repeal has been dealt with.
