Om Way To Cut Debt
““The w»y to resume is to resume.” These words end-
•d a controversy that shook the country after the Civil >
War. Then Uncle Sam was paying the interest on bonds
not in gold coin, as formerly, but in greenbacks. j
In 1875 the Resumption Act was passed, providing:
that gold payments be resumed in 1879. When Secretary]
of the Treasury John Sherman was asked how he planned ,
to start the new policy, he said, 'The way to resume is to1

Democratic women leaders from 15 states heard re-
cently at a party symposium that their party was gain-
ing adherents from a new quarter. This is the suburban
areas of large cities, heretofore the most strongly Re-
publican regions in the nation.
Figures show that in Newton and Brookline, Mass.,
the suburban homes of many wealthy Bostonians, Dem-
ocratic strength grew between 1952 and 1956. It went up
from 32 to, 36 per eent in Newton, and from 40 to 46 per
cent In Brookline.
One persuasive explanation of this phenomenon, to
the extent that it does exist, is that city residents have
been moving out into the suburbs. For a time, at least,
they carry their former party affiliations with them
Opponents of this idea argue that many Democratic new
arrivals in suburbs soon take party coloration from their
It will take more than one or two elections to prove
which of these two conflicting interpretations Is correct.

thinks Prof. Charles L. Hosier, Jr., of Pennsylvania State
University, who has Just received a three-year grant of

Hosier believes, from his Investigations, that Ice Is
slippery because of a film thicker at temperatures near
the melting point than at lower temperatures. It Is already
known that when the thermometer goes down to 40 or 50
degrees below sero, the Ice Is not slippery. Perhaps, thinks
Hosier, certain chemicals may be added which would neu-
tralise or remove this film.
If so, Ice-covered roads and sidewalks could be treated
to prevent slippery driving or walking. If the present In-

it was just a pla.n little old July, like tiny Ju'y
in any other year.
A little belatedly, however, I would like to
throw in my two cents. Girls—do me a favoi:
save your hair, will you? And I don't mean in
a cigar box.
Men with slide rules and white coats and ; II
kinds of test tuber, proved conclusively a coup!?
of centuries ago lliat the two most attractive
items about a woman, as far as males are con-
cerned, are her hair and voice. A four-foot-long
mane of hair and a good, dulcet whisky alto
can do more for a girl's popularity than basic black with pearls. If

faces in your perfumed tresses simultaneously, we are gone ganders.

SO YYHAT'S HAPPENED in recent seasons? None of the women
have long hair. Boyish bobs, Italian lawnmower cuts. Roaring
Twenties shingles, even a few crew cuts here and there on some of
my Village acquaintances—but no hair to be sat on.
Tha seriousness of the situation, at least in and around the New
York ares, was pointed up the other day when th* National Save
Your Hair Month committee, prompted by the Helene Curtis peo-
pie, handed out three awards. They were for the man with the most
beautiful hair, the girl with the most beautiful hair and tho girl
with the longest hair. Fernando Lamas, the Happy Hunting leading
man who's wed to Arlene Dahl, won the first, and Edit Adams Of
Li t Abner won tha second. No quarrels there.
■But the girl with the longest hair couldn't be found. Tho com-
mittee had figured it should be at least 36 inches long .. . and no-
body came forward to put In a claim. In desperation. Anally, too
committee put an ad in Uie paper and began calling up model agen-
cies. The agencies were duds, but the ad brought three calls. Ono
was from a Girl Scout leader who said she had several 8-ytsr-olds
in her troop who could sit on their hair.
The others were from a Connecticut girl who said har sister-in-
law qualified—except she couldn't go anywhere just now because
she was expecting—and a 70-year-old lady. The committee, which'
had pictured a handsome young thing in a bathing suit, Anally gave
