Quality in food is what Ameri

must the ingredients be good, but
they must be combined in the

NEW YORK.—For many years.
Ernest G. Draper has been
speaking up for the small business
man whenever he had a chance.

°ut to Channel comes his of.
Small Business flcial assign
In Defense Work ment as the
Federal Re
serve board, of which he is a gov
ernor, designates him as the board’s
representative in its invitation to
small business to get in happily on
the defense effort. He will work
with the officers of reserve banks in
their co-operation with local banks
in loosening credit and giving small
concerns a crack at government
contracts. The idea seems to be to
channel small banking as well as
small manufacturing into the de- |
fense mobilization of money and
Mr. Draper, New York head of
a food packing and marketing
business which isn’t so small, has
earnestly extolled what he calls
“business statesmanship.’’ He
writes for trade journals and
expounds for business forums his
idea of a wide diffusion of oppor
tunity among small business
men, and the peril of unre
strained monopoly and whole
hog taxation. From 1935 to 1938,
he was assistant secretary of
commerce, becoming a gover
nor of the Federal Reserve board
in March of the latter year. In
1930, he was the representative
of industry on the National La
bor board. In June of last year
he advocated, before a senate
sub-committee, a proposal to
liberalize federal banking ma
chinery in the interest of the
small manufacturer and mer
Owning a yacht and belonging to
several swank yachting clubs might
seem to exclude Mr. Draper from
the small business league, but it has
been no bar sinister. Amherst gave
him a degree in 1906 and later on
an honorary master’s degree.
This writer was talking to the
owner of a small tool plant in New
Jersey the other day, and found
him quite angry about the defense
program. He said the New Deal
had rigged everything for the big
boys, with nothing for the little ones,
and that it will be worse now that
the election is over and small-busi
ness votes aren’t immediately need
ed. Mr. Draper’s new activities may
reassure him.
THERE is pace and precision
in Rachel Crothers' polished
dramas of life and manners. Simi
larly everything clicks in her Amer
.. , , _ .. . ican Theater
Needy of Britain wing, which
Is Taken Under she started
Thespians’Wing laatu January
with six wom
en, and which now has more than
3,000 persons knitting, sewing, gath
ering funds, garments, food, blan
kets, even ambulances and can
teens, and keeping them moving to
England in mounting quantity.
About 1,000 o' Mrs. Crothers’ asso
ciates are New York women, in and
out of the theater. But the organi
zation and momentum are distinctly
of the theater, and a score for the
world of make-believe in facing the
grim urgency of harsh reality.
Mrs. Crothers has staged an
average of one play a year ever
since the Broadway presentation
of “The Three of Us.” in 1906.
At her home In Bloomington, 111.,
she was an impresario of paper
dolls at the age of four and
staged her first play—in the back
parlor of her home 50 years ago,
when she was 12. It was a five
act play, called “Every Cloud
Has a Silver Lining.” She was
the outstanding dramatist of her
Sunday school class, but, be
cause of the deacons, her plays
were discreetly offered as
sketches. Her parents, of Scotch,
Irish, Hugenot antecedents, were
both doctors.
After her graduation from the
state normal university of Illinois,
she worked first in amateur and then
professional theatricals, writing,
acting and producing and then
stormed Broadway with no impres
sive resources other than the manu
script of “The Three of Us.” The
Sunday school playwright from
Bloomington hit a bright note of big
town sophistication right from the
start, clear on down to “Susan and
God" of two years ago.
She is slender, brisk and alert
at 62, a bit prim, but in and of the
I big town, a distinguished lady of the
theater and supremely effective in
all that she does. During the World
war, she organized and managed as
president the Stage Women’s War
Relief organization, with similar
! succers in its humane objective. In
the slump of 1932, she and John
Golden, tr.e theatrical producer, or
ganized the highly efficient stage re
s lief fund. SJie supplies at least one
courageous answer to defeatism and
j futility. All aiound one hear* of the
j gallant efforts of the stage women.
IN A season when jumpers have
* jumped way out in front of any
other school style, this one stands
right at the head of its very smart
class. Why? Because it’s the
pinafore type, cut high and dart
fitted, that juniors are mad about.
Because the skirt is made with
unpressed front fullness that looks
perfectly charming on slim little
figures. Because it’s adorned with
two big patch pockets, as decora
tive as they are convenient. Last
but not least, it’s easy to make.
For the pinafore jumper of this
design (No. 1252-B) choose cordu
roy, flannel, jersey or wool crepe.
