Va., and Shreveport, La., brought the flat class industry almost to a standstill. The closing of these factories Is directed against the automobile industry, but the Ford company is equipped to produce its own glass and the other automobile makers are said to have enough glass in stock for a month. It was estimated that men were idle at the plants of the LIbby - Owens and Pittsburgh Plate Glass companies. The new strikes were called after leaden of the Federation of Flat Glass Workers failed to reach an agreement with representatives of the two companies concerning strikes already in progress. Libbey-Owealso was negotiating for a new union contract, their old one having expired. Employers said the Impasse was reached as a result of the union's determined demands for a closed shop, a checkoff system of union dues, and wage Increases. Glen W. McCabe, president of the Glass Workers' federation, denied the union was demanding a closed shop or that the checkoil system had to be granted. s--' read, plans lor the ' I inaugural on January 20 to be made, outlining of his inaugural address, and with consultation the full cabinet con President cerning the pro- Roosevelt gram for his second term.

EADING about a police sergeant who retired after forty years' service and never set foot off of his Iv native Manhattan island made me think of a gentleman known a s "Smitty" who, in my reportorial days on Park Row, was general roustabout at Andy Horn's saloon. Smitty was born in the shadow of Brooklyn bridge and grew up there. He had traveled the various boroughs, but no matter where he went was always within the greater city. Finally he took a tour to foreign parts. He went to visit his sister, who'd married a truck gardener back of Newark, and the brother-in-law, who owned a car, toured Smitty about the landscape. I was one who greeted Smitty on his return. "Fur me," he said, "never again! I don't like that Joisey. Why, all them towns over there is got different names." Dolling Up Lobbyists. ever became of the bill WHAT into the Louisiana legislature requiring lobbyists to wear special uniforms while following their trade? As I recall the original act, it provided that lobbyists of less than three years' experience should wear green skull caps and rainbow-hue- d plaid trousers; veterans were to wear the green caps and suits, which latter seemed especially appropriate, white being the color for purity. It's just too bad if the notion has been allowed to languish. And if an amendment were tacked on requiring that a certain type of legislator must wear garments with no pockets in them and buttoning up the back, princesse style, so the wearer couldn't slip anything inside his bosom well, there you'd have an idea that any state in the Union could profitably adopt, or, anyhow, almost any state. all-whi- Styles In Women's Hats. TTiAVE you noticed those sional hats the women are wearing this season?Lf not, kindly do so. It'll distract your attention from the part-tim- e frocks some of them are wearing. The average woman is wearing what looks like part of a hat say one-hato I've heard the more of the original hat the milliner chopped oil, the higher went the price for what was left. I suppose with hats, as in the case of a good clean appendix operation, if they'd cut the entire thing away, only very wealthy women could afford to go Even so, the wearer has something to do with the effect. I ran into the lovely Mrs. Clark Gable and she had on one of the new fractional hats and it was powerfully becoming to her. But I'll bet it would look like the very dickens on me or Jimmy Durante.
