TRIO’S FRIENDSHIP !

COMMAND WIDE POWER AND
PRESTIGE IN HOUSE;!
THREE ARE SHOWN AS OUT-!
By HERBERT PLUMMER
(lly Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.—
There’s one aspect of the fight for ,
the speakership of the next con- i
gress which worries the forces of:
Byrns of Tennessee more than
they will admit publicly.
It is the close personal friend- j
ship which exists between two'
avowed candidates for the post—
Rayburn of Texas and Bankhead -
of Alabama—and a third power
ful democrat in the house—Mc-i
Iluffie of Alabama, unsuccessful
candidate for speaker in the last
The friendship of these three
men is proverbial on and off cap
Collectively they command wide
power and prestige in the house.
For years they have been members 1
of that little group of men on the
inside who really make the demo
cratic wheels go round.
If the fight reaches the point :
where "deals” must be made it’
would seem logical for this trium
virate to be on the same side. j
On The Bay State Stage
The democratic high command.
here is watching with the keenest
but at. the same time most ehu- j
tious interest the contest being
staged in Massachusetts for the!
gubernatorial nomination among
Mayor James M. Curley of Bos
ton and Gen. Charles H. Cole are
engaged in a bitter scrap for the
The administration’s interest is (
particularly keen because James I
Roosevelt, the President’s son,
has had a lot to say about patron
age in the Bay State, and Louis
McHenry Howe, secretary to Mr.
Roosevelt, claims residence down
Fall River way. Another reason is j
that Curley, out of office because
by statute a mayor cannot serve
two successive terms, was the ori
ginal Roosevelt man in 1932.
Cole has the endorsement of *
the state pre-primary convention j
and the support of Senator Walsh
ami Governor Ely. Curley has;
the not inconsiderable advantage ’
bf a strong Boston machine.
Happens To Officials, Too
If Hugh Wilson, American min-l
ister to Switzerland since 1927 j

PARTMENT OF PUBLIC IN
STRUCTION URGES BETTER
USE OF INCOMES
By JAMES A. HODGES
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
TALLAHASSEE. Sept. 10-
Teaching Florida girls to make
Healthier and happier homes by I
training them to make better use
of the family’s income is the work'
row being done by the home eco
nomics division of the state de
partment of public instruction. j
Miss Boletha Frojen is state su-!
pervisor of the home training,j
which, during the school year, is
taught to more than 16,000 stu-!
The training for the most part ]
is intended for public high school
girls. Miss Frojen said, because;
they are in a formative age and
easier to teach. However, of the
total enrollment, 2.883 are wom
en studying how to, make better ■
homes in part-time and night
Under the main head of “Train--
ing for Home Making and Home'
Living,” the home economics stu
dents are being taught to improve
their family and community life
with such courses as housing, food
and its selection, cooking, nutri-i
tion, clothing and sewing, child
care, recreation and leisure in the
family, health and safety in the
family and family relationship
“Material comforts greatly con-]
tribute to the ideal relationship in
a family,” Miss Frojen said. ‘
“That is why healthy and attrac
tive food and clothing and homes
are so important. But in approach
ing the problems of improving (
these factors of the home life, we
have always tried to keep in mind
the income level of each family]
and community.” i
Along with their classroom in
struction the home economics stu
dents arc given practical and con
structive projects to carry on in *
their homes. Miss Frojen said.!
Some of these home projects are ]
making family food budgets toj
improve diet value and lessen cost, j
growing vegetables at home to add ;
to the family diet and to sell fori
spending money, planning and!
preparing meals, collecting and]
testing food recipes, remodelling j
bedroom, improving health and
correcting posture, overcoming
bad eating habits, outfitting a ;
medicine cabinet and alteration '
of old clothes.
New Clothes From Old Clothes
More and more interest is be- 1
ing given to the construction of •
wearable garments out of old
clothes as a result of the reduc-j
tion of many families’ incomes,]
Miss Frojen said. Some of the |
students, she said, have made at-;
tractive dresses from flour sacks
and other discarded material, j
snetiding only a few cents for ;
Because of the reduced in-,
comes, more interest also is being!
shown in games and pastimes suit- j
able for entertaining the family]
at home, Miss Frojen said.
Home economics studies are l
given in 286 white schools, 35 j
negro schools, three part-time j
schools and nine night-school cen
ters, Forty-two schools have ]
courses in vocational economics,]
in which the study is more ihten- j
sive with the girls conducting j
home projects. One-half of thoi
teachers’ salaries in the vocation- i
al schools are reimbursed by state j
and federal funds.

Politicians Peering At 1936
By HERBERT PLUMMER
WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.—It
was to be expected that when for
mer President Hoover finally did
break his silence on things gov
ernmental, politicians immediately
would attempt to find in his ex
pression some clue to future poli
It had been something like a
year and a half since he had said
anything publicly about what has
been going on in the country since
he left the presidency.
All efforts, however, to fix
Hoover’s place in the political
scene from what he had to say i
his recent magazine article ap
pear to have run up a blind alley*
There was talk in some quarters
that his attack on the ‘‘new deal”
might be construed as an effort
to restore himself to the lime
light and to possible leadership of
his party in 1936.
But it was nothing more than
Kept Silence Long
Asa matter of fact, the thing
which has kept the politicians at
sea more than anything else is ;
that Mr. Hoover has been able to
keep quiet as long as he has.
He has seen, since that bleak
March day of 1933 when he left
Washington immediately after,
seeing Franklin D. Roosevelt take
