F.D.R. Missing

Harmony Party
'Pressure Of Other Things'
Keeps President From

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.-()-
Senate Democrats gathered tonight
at a "Harmony" dinner but President
Roosevelt was a conspicuous absen-
The Chief Executive, who was ac-
cused only yesterday by Senator
Copeland, of New York, of destroying
party harmony, sent a letter to the
party gathering, instead of attend-

President from going.
Copeland attended the dinner-an-

the new party leader, Senator Bark-

strife-ridden Democratic ranks in the
It was a "stag" affair, behind closed
doors at tht Raleigh Hotel, with no
outsiders invited and even the one
woman Senator, Mrs. Caraway of
Arkansas, left off the guest list.
Senators in charge of the affair in-

the new leader, and that no serious
speeches were listed. They said al-
most a dozen informal talks were bn

Vice-President Garner, who has

wounds, was the presiding officer or

The Mart She Flogged

Eloise Willis, 17, smilingly ad-
mitted that she flogged Albert Kay,
47-year-old WPA worker, at New
Orleans for "gossiping" about her.
She is shown standing beside the
tree in a yard where the alleged
flogging took place.

Popular AMusic
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 10.-()-
Stocky, black-haired Jose Iturbi, no
stranger to controversy, jumped right
into the middle of another opera-
versus-just-plain-music debate to-
Said Iturbi, Spanish born conduc-
tor who stopped a national radio
broadcast by the Philadelphia Or-
chestra last night because he objected
to some popular songs:
"There is good American music-
but all this I-love-you stuff is just
"It is far below the dignity of the
Orchestra to play such cheap, rotten,
music. See, I cannot permit such
stuff on a broadcast."
Iturbi left Radio Singer Lucy Mun-
roe standing in the wings at Robin
Hood Dell here last night and stalked
to the stage when he discovered the
popular songs were on the program.
He is directing the orchestra for the
Miss Munroe and Jan Pierce were
to have sung the songs-including
works by Victor Herbert, George
Gershwin, Oley Speaks, Jerome Kern,
Frank Laforge and Daniel Wolf.

This is admitted regretfully by the3
man who knows most about theL
fabled bonanza-William R. Brey-
fogle of San Francisco, a grand-
nephew of the discoverer. He has de-t
termined by a search of family rec-Y
ords that the chart intended to guide1
the heirs to the hidden riches was
burned by error some years ago in
San Jose, Calif.
In 1868, Louis Jacob stumbled into
a ranch near Austin, Nev., raving mad
from thirst and weeks of captivity
and mistreatment by the Indians.
That was on the edge of Death Valley.
In his hands, Louis Jacob held speci-
mens of the rich gold ore he had
found in the desert.
A Poisoned Arrow
His mind quickly cleared and he,
organized a party to go back to his
great strike. The ore was said to be
more than half gold, worth some $250
a pound at today's prices.
What happened on this and subse-
quent expeditions is not clear to the
family. Old prospectors' legends on
the subject vary. It is related, how-
ever, that less than two years after
his lucky trip into the valley Louis
Jacob was struck by a poisoned ar-
row and that he died in Salt Lake
Knowing the perils of Death Val-
ley, Louis Jacob had intrusted a map
of his diggings to the present Brey-
fogle's-father, who was a prosperous
San Francisco lumber merchant. .
"My father planned to look for the
mine but kept putting it off until he
died," William Breyfogle explains. "In,
the meantime he lent the map to a
cousin, but this man also died before
he got to Death Valley.
Last Chance Gone
"It was my hope also to make the

years a piece of it was on display at
Austin, Nev."
Miners familiar with Breyfogle's
story are inclined to place his dis-
covery in Amargosa range, a barren
mountain chain near the California-
Nevada border.

A brunette with a sallow skint

see that the chartreuse brings out
all the yellow in this brunette's skin

You Must Experiment
The experimental method is the
only one to use, says Miss Muriel Cox
of Boston, who has given advise on
clothing to hundreds of student styl-
ists and department store executives.
She carries a huge bag of sample
materials around with her, and trots
them out whenever anyone asks,
"What colors should I wear?"
But before she takes up cloth colors,
she tests the color of the questioner's
skin by holding against her forehead
a card with a peephole cut in it.
Your forehead gives your true skin
color-"background color," Miss Cox
calls it. Cheeks are "foreground
color," and shouldn't be considered
when buying clothes.
With the aid of the peephole, an
amateurtcansee what color pre-
dominates in her skin-pink, purple,
yellow or brown.
The skin is the most important de-
tail to consider when picking clothes
colors. Hair and eyes rank second,
says Miss Cox. But she makes two
If you have blue or blue-green
eyes-in which case play them up.
If you have red hair-in which case
you must think of it first.
Some Conclusions
Here are some of Miss Cox's con-

Many persons wear colors that are
too obvious, such as bright red, for
instance, which separates the fore-
ground from the background. Try
blended colors, peach or dull blue,
Green is the most flattering color.
It brings out the pink in the
skin. Navy blue, contrary to sales-
girls who swear you look your best in
blue, is dangerous. Only women with
lots of pink in their skin should at-
tempt it.
Women with dark hair and eyes
can safely essay strong colors, to
play up the contrast. Others should
try to match the skin, rather than to
contrast it.
Dr. Dafoe Announces
That Quints Now OK
CALLANDER, Ont., Aug. 10.-(Ca-
nadian Press)-Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe
said today the Dionne quintuplets, re-
covering from slight colds, were in
good condition but, because of their
"irritable and nervous dispositions,
would require additional rest.
Their twice-daily public appear-
ances have been suspended until Fri-
day and measures taken to assure
them more privacy. Additional
screening was placed around their
hospital to word off excitement from
hand-waving tourists.
Emilie, middleweight of the quin-
tet, already has fully recovered from
her cold but Dr. Dafoe said there
was no point in exhibiting just one
quintuplet, as it would only make the
others lonesome.
Judgment for $50 damages was giv-
en in a British court for disinfecting
a house without giving notice, this
