Over the weekend, the big stores broke out with a few million dol

Look battling it out with the American "Back to the Twenties"
look. The New New Look differs from the 'Twenties" look in that
hems hang higher . . . 13) Inches from the floor. Also, the New New
Look has something called a floating panel, which is kind of a mis
placed bib, hanging from the waist like an apron. On the other
hand, in another store, there's the "Back-to-the-Twenties" look, with
memories of President Coolidge, prohibition and flappers. The tight
skirt is back it's the bold hobble skirt, and it's way, way up from
the floor ... as a matter of fact, the bottom nearly hits the waistline,
which is halfway down the hip. And, of course, the baggy coat is
back, so we might as well face it
be making a comeback. But new look or old, the plunging neckline
remains, and It's still plunging.

Private Phone Companies Attack
Poage Bill As "Socialist" Gesture
By PETER EDSON
NEA Washington Correspondent
WASHINGTON. Backers of the PoageHill bill to authorize
Rural Electrification Administration financing lor farm telephone
lines have been showing off what they claim is a typical letter.
It is from a country store operator In San Bemadlno county, Calif.
We have tried to get telephone
service here, but have not had any
luck," says one paragraph of the
letter. 'The Bell people will put
a pay station at the store II we
make them a gift of $10,700. We
can get a 10-party line from Vie
torville If we advance $15,000, re
funded 10 per cent of the bills tor
10 years, then nothing thereafter.
Both a Joke. We have made a sur
vey and can get 100 subscribers
here and nearby."
Farm organization representa
tives are now putting the heat on
the Senate Agriculture committee
to do something this session about
the rural phone bill, so as to take
care of situations like the above.
A sub-committee under Sen.
Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma has
held two days of hearings on such
a hill Introduced by Sen. Lister
Hill of Alabama and nine other
senators. It is a companion meas
ure to Texas Congressman W. R.
Poaee's bill which recently pass
ed the House by a vote of nearly
tnree to one.
The Poaee bill would authorize
REAthe Rural Electrification
administration to make two per
cent, 35-year loans to private com
panies, public agencies and co
operatives for extending phone
service to farmers.
Bell System Opposes
There is plenty of opposition try
ing to keep the Poage Hill meas
ure hung up in the Senate.
Bell telephone system companies,
which tie in over 80 per cent of
the Class A telephones in the U. S.
don't like the Poage bill. The
6000 Independent telephone com
panies don't like it. Yet the
Independent Telephone institute
spokesmen have told Congress
that one of the chief obstacles to
expansion of rural phone service
is lack of capital.
A number of congressmen and
free-enterprise trade associations
of businessmen oppose the Poage
Hill bill because tney say u is
"socialistic." They maintain that
outline the government in the
phone business will simply add to

REA has for some years had a
plan whereby private telephone
companies might share use of
REA Doles to provide rural serv
ice. But REA administrator
Claude Wickard recently told
Contrress that only 206 such agree'
ments have been made, bringing
phones to only 120,000 more cus
tomers. TeleDhone company officials In
testifying before Congress have
stressed the arguments that they
have been installing rural teie-
nhones at record-breaking rates.
They claim 1,200.000 new rural
phones installed since the end of
the war. Since tne l4 u. s. cen
sus of Agriculture reported l,8fi6,
000 farms with telephones, this
would mean 3,000.000 rural phones

Of Quake Horror
GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador, Aug. 10
UP This brave little nation
went gamely about the task today
of doing what she could for her
earthquake ravaged areas, which
include some of the richest agri
cultural land In the country.
Citizens have caught up the
phrase of youthful President
Lasso, who said: "The situation is
horrible, but this is no time for
lamentations. Let us shed the
money of Ecuador, not the tears.
That seemed to size up the sit
uation and the need of a nation
for help in a tragedy wherein
several thousand lost their lives
and tens of thousands their
Meanwhile heart-rending tales
of suffering are being brought
back by rescue workers who have

of their homes.

ence I had," he said, "was hearing
the cries of men, women and
children still imprisoned while
