if you do get down safely to the bot-

The theory of the lending bill, he
said, was to provide a graduated de-
scent from the level of high employ-
ment, but the coalition voted in favor
of the precipice method.
Again today, as in a statement in
Washington last night, Mr. Roose-
velt said that all the objectives of
his unsuccessful attempt to reorgan-
ize the Supreme Court in 1937 had
been attained-the last was through
his signing a bill creating an ad-
ministrative officer to handle fiscal
affairs of all Federal courts.
The other six objectives were some-
what slurred over in the press, he re-
marked, although they were impor-
tant to the country in that court
cases had been expedited.
Formerly he said there were delays
of two or three years in bringing
cases to trial and this worked to the
disadvantage of poor litigants who
could not afford to wait as well as
rich ones.
Speeding up of calendars means a
great deal to the adequate dispensa-
tion of justice, the President con-
tended, adding that he did not think
that should be slurred over.
That speeding up, he said, has been
assisted particularly by three parts
of the court program:
(1) The granting of retirement
privileges enabling older judges who
could not do as much work as young-
er ones to leave the bench.
(2) The appointment of addition-
al judges in overcrowded districts.
Twenty-five have been appointed al-
ready, he said, and he asserted he ex-
pebted to sign a bill providing for five
(3) The government now must be
notified immediately of any suit in-
volvin'9 constitutionality of a law
passed by Congress. Previously, two
private litigants could raise a ques-
tion of constitutionality and the Gov-
er ent could not intervene to de-
fend the law.
Furthermore, in the past it has
been possible by injunctions to tie up,
for two or three or four years, cases
involving the constitutionality ques-
tion, he said. But now such cases go
immediately from the original court
to the Supreme Court where they
must be put at the top of the pre-
ferred list. That benefits both the
poor litigant and the Government, he

So much time and energy have been spent by fashion writers in telling
tall thin girls how to conceal their sharp figure lines that the short plump
girl's problems have been almost entirely over-looked.
If you are plump, don't worry about it, because there are plenty of thin
girls who would like to be inyour boots, although they'll never admit it. And
in this day and age when the importance of having a tall angular figure has
been so over-emphasized, it's rather distinctive to be short and have plenty
of curves.
One of the most important things for the girl who is short and slightly
over weight to remember is that she must never, under any circumstances,
wear dirndls. These frocks are on the market only for the benefit of the
thin girl whose aim is to appear slightly hippy and get away from a'scrawny
under-fed look. It's obvious that if you already are too hippy, you're only
accenting and drawing attention to a figure fault, which by all rights should
be diminished.,
If it is humanly possible, the short plump girl should avoid wearing
suits and jacket dresses, and build up a wardrobe which consists mainly
of one-piece dresses of dark materials with smooth vertical lines. She should
wear nothing that is tightly fitted, and must never wear knit clothes, or
satins, as these two materials are clinging and are never to be worn by a girl
who falls short of having anything but a perfectly proportioned figure.
If plump girls wish to create an illusion of height and at the same
time cut down their appearance of weight, they would do well to wear a high
waistline on all of their clothes, and if the outfit requires it, a narrow belt
may be worn above their natural waistline.
High heels should be worn at all times as they will not only add several
inches in stature, but they also have a tendency to promote good posture,
which is especially important no matter what your physical measurements
Another essential point that the short plump girl should bear in mind
is that she must never wear either large prints, dresses with horizontal
lines or bright colored clothes, as they all draw attention to the fullness of
a figure which should be shaded.
Girls who have a small frame, and a tendency to be over weight should

University, City Within
A City - -1,400 Phones
A veritable city within a city, the
University has more than 1,400 tele-
phones in its many buildings. Of
this number, 970 are main installa-
tions and approximately450 are ex-
tensions. It is necessary to have 24
trunk lines to handle all the calls.
Fifteen of the trunk lines are set up
for incoming calls, the other nine be-
ing set aside for calls going outside
on the direct dial system. The op-
erators at the University switch board
must be memory experts as they are
asked most often to establish a con-
nection with a named individual
rather than with a numbered station.
also avoid wearing flounces and
ruffles and should stick to simple
tailored clothes of dark materials.
Most girls with this particular figure
problem have been heeding this advice
since the cradle, and that is one of
the reasons why they are on the whole
better dressed than the average. Too
many girls who are thin try to play
upon this fault by convincing them-
selves that it's smart to be under-
weight, little realizing that they too
should dress carefully and not accent
their bad qualities.
So if you're short, and plump go
right ahead and eat, drink and be
merry, but afterwards bear in mind
the importance of looking trim by
wearing neat dark dresses, high
heeled pumps, skirts about an inch
longer than the present trend, and
an up hair do
