were several feminine leads taken in
the new Congressional drama played
yesterday on Capitol Hill. Mrs.
Franklin D. Roosevelt held a place
for herself in an over-reserved gal-
Mrs. Isabella Greenway, Arizona,
was one of the new members who
walked up to the central speaker's
dais. Mrs. Greenway had a personal
interest in the ceremony. She acted
as bridesmaid for Mrs. Roosevelt
back in 1905 and their friendship has
lasted through these three decades.

grown-ups enrolled. Among the stu-

haired grandfather, several farmers

md women old enough to be in col-
tege. The three R's are being taught.
College teachers in the Liberal Arts
School at the University of Minne-
zota are not under the NRA as far

arrived with the prospect of a polit-
ical fight before she is officially ac-
cepted. Mrs. Bolivar was elected
without a primary and a faction of
Louisiana voters contended J. Y.
Sanders, Jr., should have her seat.
The dean of the wonen "on the
hill" found no new thrill in the ses-
sion. She had been there since 1925,
following the death of her husband,,
who had also been a representative.
Two other members have been in
the House- just as long, Mrs. Mary
Norton, New Jersey, and Mrs. Edith
Nourse Rogers, Massachusetts. Two

be "excited" by the ceremony. Mrs.
Virginia E. Jenckes, Indiana, and
Mrs. Kathryn O'Loughlin McCarthy,
Kansas. This is their second open-
ing day.
In the Senate the only woman
member is Mrs. Hattie Caraway, Ar-

School Board
Bars Paintings.
Of Fairyland
Dragons and gnomes and all the
other colorful oddities of fairyland
have been officially banned from the
Detroit school murals painted at Fed-
eral expense to relieve unemployed,
artists. Mrs. Laura F. Osborn, presi-
dent of the Board of Education, be-
lieves that all animals appearing on
the wall decorations should be true to
life, with those existing only in fancy
or literature barred in order not to
frighten or mislead the pupils. Sc
Alice and her Wonderland playmates
from Tweedleduim and Tweedledec
down, Rip Van Winkle and all other
make-believe cha, acters beloved by
children of all ages will have to stay
"put" in fairyland.
"There is too much of that sort
of thing in literature, art and movies
ohstensibly for children," Mrs. Os-
born declared. "I'm often asked tc
preview motion pictures for children,
and some of them are terrible. There
was one. 'Jack in the Beanstalk,' that
had a giant too ugly to show chil-
"We don't want to put untrue or
ugly pictures on the walls of the
school rooms for the children to look
at. Our duty is to educate the chil-
dren, not to give them nightmares."
She expressed approval of a depic-
tion of an Eighteenth Century mu-
sical instrument "The Serpent" char-
acterized as the forerunner of thc
modern saxophone.
