(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Aug. 7.-The new
veterans administration, biggest
government consolidation job this
generation has witnessed, has
swung into operation-though a
number of administrative problems
still are pending settlement.
Officials of the bureau which
will spend about $800,000,00 year-
ly on behalf of hundreds of thou-
sands of former soldiers, today had
before them a summary of their
powers and responsibilities under
legislation enacted by the last con-
gress.
New Applications Filed.

All that remained of the famous New York Velodrome after its
wooden structure had been swept by a fire that blazed all night. The
$150,000 bike-racing and boxing arena will be replaced by a steel and
reinforced concrete stadium with a seating capacity of 18,000 persons.

STAGE
WHISPER
by Helen Carrm
If you can extricate yourself'
from this tropical mire long enough
to visit the Mendelssohn theatre
and watch the constant wife do her
stuff you'll not only feel relieved
but it's also very likely that you'll
even regain sense of humour.
Mr. W. J. G. has told you in four
syllabled words that "The Constant1
Wife" was the nertz. Well, it is.
For the ninety-ninth time Mr. W.
J. G. and I agree. It's just anotherj
one of those things-the sort ofj
thing that not even Winnie-the-
Pooh could forsee. And if you re-
member, Winnie-the-Pooh was a
brown bear of the first water, the
deepest dye, and the greatest mag-
nitude. And that is all we shall
tell about The Pooh today, my
dears.
This interminable heat bothers
the author of this puerile column.a
To be absolutely truthful-and who
wants to be?-the prospect of chat-
tering on and elaborating endlesslyj
on the good and bad points of this
week's play appalls me. So I shall
reiterate and repeat, and therefore
be appalled.
Mr. Harry Allen as Bernard Ker-
sal surprised us with his fine Eng-
lish accent. His Mr. Kersal was in-
deed an intelligent one.
As for Mary Power, her gestures,
her voice, and her comedy - all
were priceless. She played Mrs.
Culver with an ancient sophisti-
cation that was delightful. To each
of Maugham's words she gave just
the correct significance without
any too-obvious projection. Her
response as to the perfect test for
one's love-"Could you use his
toothbrush, Constance?" kept most
of us chuckling for some minutes.
As usual, the inevitable mistake.
Why did Director Windt 'cast Ar-
thur Secord in the role of John
Middleton, F. R. C. S.? Mr. Secord,
as the timid, hen-pecked husband
of "Close Harmony" did some nice
work. But as the man-of-the-so-
phisticated-world, as the great sur-
geon of London society who was
capable of deceiving his wife, or
who could even inspire in another
wedded female the desire for an
intrigue-no; utterly, irrevocably,
and unfortunately NO.
Pauline Bauersmith gave us a.
cleverly furious Martha who, de-
spite her thirty-two years, man-
aged always to look like the New
Yorker's idea of 'On and Off the
Avenue." Which is a treat.-

Anti-Communist Drive
Inaugurated in Cuba
(By Associated Press)
HAVANA, Aug. 7.-Under orders
of the secretary of the interior,
IManuel Delgado, the entire island
of Cuba is to undergo a campaign
against Communism.
More than 20 persons were ar-
rested in various parts of the coun-
try Wednesday in inauguration of
the campaign. Many of the arrests
were made during raids at Havana
and elsewhere on offices implicat-
ed in distribution of alleged sedi-
tious literature.
Many men and women, princi-
pally Chinese, have been ordered
to appear in court for questioning
relative to their affiliation with the
Third Internationale of Moscow.
Trucks full of literature havel
been seized during raids on the
Communist headquarters and will
be used in evidence.
UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS: "As
corrupt as politicians are, on the
whole I believe the government is
better off in their hands than it
would be in thehands of news-
paper men," declared William T.
Laprade, visiting professor of his-
tory at the University of Illinois.

At the same time they consider-
ed reports on the business flowing
in under this year's legislation.
They estimated at least 1,000 ap-
plicationsfor benefits underathe
new World war disability allow-
ance have been filed in each of the
54 regional offices of the veterans'
bureau. Sixteen thousand appli-
cations have been reported to'
headquarters here.
In the soldiers' home and pen-
sions bureau - the two other
branches united under Brig. Gen.
Frank T. Hines-new activities
likewise have been tackled.
A. B. Miller, special assistant tol
the administrator, said headquar-
ters of the National Home for Dis-
abled Volunteer Soldiers would be
moved from Dayton, 0., to Wash-
ington about Sept. 1. Under" an
authorization by the past congress
two new homes will be added to
the ten existing.
Will Benefit All Soldiers.
Gen. Hines has moved his of-
fices into quarters near the pen-
sions bureau to work on the el-
phantine task of checking up the
available facilities.
With the enacaMent of the law
liberalizing Spanish War Veterans' i
pensions about 130,000 new claims
loomed on the horizon of this bur-
eau.
In addition, it must deal with
about 49,000 claims by Civil war
soldiers, eligible under liberaliza-
tion enacted in June, and with 27,-
000 claims by Civil war widows.
It will have to review about 149,-
000 Civil war widows' claims in
dealing with the estimated 27,000
eligible.

FASHION PLATE
If the present showings are at
all harbingers of styles that are to
be, this fall the American miss and
madam will go "Directoire" in a
big way, especially in the evening.
Leading in that mode are the prod-
ucts of our leading designer, May-
er, who by continuing to raise the
waist-line, further r e v e a 1 t h e
bosom, and carefully fit the hips,
He has achieved a most charming
effect that will do much to make
your evenings more glamorous next
winter.
It seems most ill-timed to speak)
of winter fabrics in such heat asI
this, but those to be used in fur-
thering the charm of these suh-
weet gowns, are velvets of a heavy
sort that will stiffly billow into aI
semi-starched flare, poplums beingI
what they are. Picture yourself in
the following: a dress in black vel-'
vet, with a V-decolletage, a fringed
perky bow below this in back, and
a skirt that surges out from the
knees down. If you can conljure
such a mental image, you are pic-
turing one of next season's well-
dressed women.
There are lots and lots of metal-
lic fabric on display, and spongy
silks and metal mixtures, used in
long-sleeved, charmingly draped
afternoon dresses for wear under
fur coats, or the black broadcloth
coats that are again being revived.

Hens Annoy Neighbors,
Owner Seeks Silencer
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, Aug. 7.-Unless some
effective means of silencing chick-
ens is discovered before Aug. 29,
Harry Resnick will have to move.
The neighbors complained of the
noises emanating from Resnick's
back yard. The hens and roosters
he harbors there, they said, make
sleep impossible after daybreak,
and this, to a city dweller, means
a considerable loss of sleep.
Judge Francis Borrelli, to whom
the case was finally referred, agreed
with the neighbors that chicken
noises come under the class of dis-
turbances in a large city. Resnick
would have to do something about
it, the judge said.
"But I can't muzzle the roosters
or hush up the hens," Resnick re-
plied. "The only thing I can do is
move out of town."
"That's a good idea," returned
Judge Borrelli. "Make it before
Aug. 29."
