British and American Precaution Urged in Handling U.S. Checks New Orleans. Nov. 9 UP— The United States Secret Service today urged that all navy personnel ask :heir dependents 10 follow this precautionary procedure in handling government checks. 1—Be at horrte or have a mem- set of your family at home when yottr navy check is due to arrive. If you remove it from the mail box immediately it cannot be stolen by a check thief. 2—Be sure you have a deep. strong, mail box, with your name clearly printed oh it. Keep it locked. 3--if possible, arrange With your mail carrier to signal when he delivers your check. 4-*-Notify your postmaster immediately if you.move, 5—Cash your check at the same place each month.

Mr Churchill didn't specify the basis for this forecast, but it strikes me that the danger is two-fold. It lies (1) in the desperation of Hitler and his gang, and (2) in the nature of the amphibious operations the Western Allies must carry out the most difficult and dangerous of their kind ever undertaken We need only turn to Hitler's Munich beer-hall speech of Monday ; » to get the first part of our answer, a The Nazi leaders are cornered, and ^ -'<' they will fight with every means available fair and fou, so long as German soldiers and civilians are willing to suffer and die for them and there remains a chance of Arkansas Hairdressers and Cosmetologists Association re-elected Mrs. Lucille Edwards Nnhlen, North Little Rock, president at its annual convention here yesterday.

Chare's de Gaulle was left in virtually undisputed control of the French Committee of National Liberation today following the resignation of Gen. Henri Giraud as co- president and other sweeping changes"* which drew Communist censure of hasty action In the committee's reconstruction; Giraud's withdrawal, which, however, left him in command of the French armed forces, came at an unannounced meeting yesterday at which the committee adopted two j decrees dropping five members, additig seven' others and ordaining a separation of civilian and military powers. An official announcement said both decrees were signed by aU,members present, including Giraud. The reshuffle, coincident with reopening of the consultative assembly, gave the committee a completely de' Gaullist tinge and left the Communists unrepresented. One Communist assemblyman, Andre' Mercier, assailed the de .Gaullists for too much speed until changes ;could . be discussed "in broad daylight."

Now. in the Appalachian tongue, "Be'nst hit were a-Monday stidda Sunday" a span of his'own bluenose mules couldn't drag "Farmer Bob" awny from his job of finding tax revenues to help pay for the war. Bob Is a Baptist. He goes to church twice on Sunday. That's no idle crack about the mules, either. Doughton is G-feet-2 ahd 200 pounds of bone and muscle. He has the most powerful shoulders and arms In the House. Maybe that's why Ihey call him "Muley." Maybe il's because he first got into the chips trading mules and went on to win a fortune by hardheaded banking, stockrais- ing and farming. Maybe it's because a tax principle, once in mind, takes up permanent residence. The gray old mountain giant heads one of the most important committees of Congress. It alone can initiate revenue. He is a stubborn week-day worker. His personal minimum is 16 hours. He doesn't look an hour older than he did when I first saw him 20 years ago.

When you get there you find a bald-big-boned patriarch in a pep- per-ahd-salt suit bent over his desk and a dozen tax problems. His eyeglasses perch, unused, high on his crqggy forehead.

The best measure of Hitler's desperate determination, however, came when he went to the extreme of threatning to us the headman's ax on Germans who try to y»- surrender; Referring to ; the col-. **. lapse of the home-front in the last war he declared:; "What happened in 1918- will not happen a second time.

However that represents a state of mind, and we will have to account for such striking power as may remain in what has been Hitler's strongest weapon — his army. The Fuehrer's 1 v speech gives us the key to what **• probably is the greatest military "' *•- danger we face in-Western Europe. vt "Our enemies will discover," he said, "that-it is'one thing to land .„ against Italians irt Sicily and a very !/ different thing against the Germans on the channel to France or Norway." That's a true bill — if. The ir if" "t has to do with how much damage the German army has suffered- in " Russia. If Hitler's war-machine still has formidable power, then our greatest sacrifices are going to be on the beach-heads,, whenever amphibious invasions arie undertaken. , Once the beach-heads are esta.b- -" *"lished and we have our armies ashore, our losses'will lessen greatly The reader also knows from such bloody operations as Dieppe and Salerno what these landings can mean. We need only add to that knowledge the reminder that the intent of Congress" in rejecting the eight-cent increase on the ground it would conflict with the wage stabilization act. "The stabilization act specifically exempted the railway labor act from its provisions and the Congress never intended to give the executive branch authority to suspend the machinery of the railway act for settling wage disputes," Reed said.

Committee members said they expected Vinson's reply by Monday. | sisted it had a right to name its i own choice instead of having the offer extended to an individual by the committee. The committee named Gen. Georges Catroux and Andre Philip, former interior commissioner, as "state ministers" in'a move apparently preliminary to relieving Ca- troux of his post as governor-general of Algeria. Catroux will re main in charge of Mussulman at- fairs. The committee dropped national defense commissioner Gen. Paul re Gentilhomme, Finance Commissioner Maurice Couve de Murville; Education and Public Health Commissioner Dr. Jules Abadie, and Gen. Alphonse Georges, long-time friend of Gen. Giraud, as commissioner without portfolio. Emmanuel D'Astier de la Viger- ie, leader of a resistance movement within France, was named interior commissioner to ' succeed Philip, who henceforth will be in .charge of liaison with the assembly with the title of "state minister."

"Big Bob," as they call him from the Tennessee line to the Piedmont, grew up in the tremendous sim-. plicity and natural dignity of the hill people. He ignores , the rush and worry that boils about him. There are two things he will not tolerate. Idleness is both" of them. He kicks off the covers by starlight, eats a breakfast of cereal, bacon and eggs, fruit and coffee, dashes through the dawn with yard-long strides for 30 minutes chuckling, kindly, deeply sincere. He ad libs from the classics. You like him. He likes you. "I," he twinkles, "have made it a practice to think that any reporter who says anything good about me is a great writer." "Buttermilk Bob," the boys call him sometimes. That's the strongest stuff he'll touch. He says "lik- ker is p'izen." .

Doughton's committee voted for about 2 billions of additional revenue, but just $12,000,000 of it from individual income laxes. Says Doughton: "The taxpayer is up against about all he can take. You can get his blood, hair and hide . . But when you get down to the bones he's done. You can shear a sheep many times, but skin him only once.

Bricker of Ohio to Seek Governorship Chicago, —Nov. 10 —(IP) — Gov.— John W. Bricker of Ohio stated today al a press conference he would be a Republican candidate for president in the Ohio primaries in May. The governor declined to make a stalement regarding any other 194"! campaign plans, but remarked, "I will definitely enter the Ohio primaries as a Republican presidential candidate. I think they're the second week in May — about May 14." Bricker said present-day postwar planning "is not feasible because we can't anticipate post-war conditions." He added: "Our government must, in cooperation with other governments, meet post-war problems as they arise, or anticipate them before they come up and eliminate them.

W)— Loss of three destroyers, two in the South Pacific, and the third in a battle with a submarine in the Atlantic was announced by the navy today. A torpedo explosion sent the destroyer Henley down in the South Pacific last October. Off Vella La Vella, the Chavalier sank after she was severely damaged in a battle with the enemy and collided with another destroyer in her formation, breaking in two. Next of kin of all casualties aboard the Henley and Chevalier have been notii'ed. The Borie was lost in the Atlantic as a result of damage she suffered in rarnming and sinking an enemy submarine. She sank one submarine with depth bombs, then rammed and sank a second German UU-boat. The force of the second ramming was too much for the old Borie, which was built in 1920. Holes opened in her hull below the water line. With water pouring in she managed to rejoin her task force but damage was so great that it was necessary for her personnel to abandon her. The Borie then was sunk by bombs from her own group's planes. ST.

Support entered the wheat pit on reports of unfacorable weather in wheat crop conditions and a little mill buying. Other grains followed wheat. A report from New York, saying some east coast distillling plants had already returned to the use of molasses in manufacturing industrial alcohol, offset the bullish news. This action was expected to release wheat for feed purpose. At the close wheat was 1-4 lower lo 1-8 higher, December $1.57 1-8, May $1.56 1-4—1-8, rye was unchanged lo 3-8 lower, December $1.11 3-4—5-8, oats were 1-8 lower to 1-8 higher and barley was unchanged to 1-4 higher.

Store managers commented if they put liquor on their shelves, stranger:; or out-ol'-towncrs would buy il up in short time. Some New York City dealers were voluntarily rationing liquor at one bottle per customer as was the case in the northern part of the state where there is a general shortage. In the oily the demand was said to be four times that of 1942. Another customer complaint bad lo do with prices. In Texas whiskey was .selling at $lt and Si) a pint in dry counties. In Oregon, where a new coupon rationing program was instituted last month allotting one tjuart of whiskey per person a nonth, bootleg liouors were said to ic soiling at ."?!() a quart.

Distillers, however, said they lave enough stocks on hand to last iinil the end of !he war provided discretion is used in releasing it. Practically all western, southwestern and .southern states rc- l'.'d a dearth of .scotch, bourbon and rye. Alabama, however, was hopclul ol declaring a "Christmas ration bonus." A slight easing of the .shortage was predicted in Maryland and Baltimore hotel operators said the number of drink's they sell was limited only by the customers' pocketbook and capacity. The New England .states said shortages were beginning to be fell. Veimonl limits customers to a bottle a week while Maine has instituted semi-rationing with one bottle illowed per day. Pennsylvania has had a liquor shortage for months and will soon adopt, rationing. Black market operations were reported in Washington, U.

The measure, introduced yesterday by Senator McClellan (D-Ark), called for post-war construclion of dams, reservoirs, floodways and levee improvements which McClellan estimated would cost $261,965,000. The projects, already authorized by Congress with a few in the general plan already completed, are located in Kansas. Missouri, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico and Arkansas. "Thisb ill if enacted will constitute a legislative directive that the comprehensive program in these valleys be consummated with all dispatch possible as a part of our postwar construction and em told the Senate. "This bill if enacted will con- over-all policy and advances an entire program" without favoring any particular project. Such legislation had been sponsored in previous sessions by former Rep. Clyde Ellis of Bentonville, Ark. McClellan estimated the cost of the levee and floodways in the Arkansas river basin under his bill at i $10,114,000 and costs of dams an reservoirs at $122,049,000.

The essays follow: Fire Prevention Don't be a slacker! Maybe you can't shoulder a gun, but every loyal American can have a part in this big issue, Fire Prevention. Fire, uncontrolled, is a dreaded enemy which runs on a rampage throughout our nation each year. In its path lies prosperity; behind it lies a trail of charred ruins. Our best method of attack is prevention. Many fires are started by such carelessness as: failing lo extinguish the campfire before leaving, neglecting lo disconnect electrical appliances, and merely tossing away a burning match. You can be a soldier on the home front. Prevent fires! By ALICE LORRAINE HEARD, 10th Grade Fire Prevention At this time when our Country is at war, anyone, who due to his carelessness starts a disastrous fire, is practically guilly of sabotage. Much valuable timber which is essential to the war effort is destroyed by careless campers. There are even more fires in the home, mainly because the members of the family don't know the rules of preventing them. The purpose of Fire Prevention Week is lo teach us these rules. If each American cilizen woulc make il his personal responsibility to guard against fires, he woulc be contributing a great deal lowarc helping to win this war.

"You don't expect lhe Simkins' will eat lhe cake?" asked Emily. "It's just i'or show, the cookies and ice cream for eating." HTHE telephone rang, the calls were coming in. Mrs. Simkins was a chronic, and Emily called on her every week. This was lhe day, and it would bo her first call. With her bag, and the box, shu went out presently to the street car line and rode through the hot and duslry streets'. She left the car at the Simkins' corner and went directly to the drug .store to buy a quart of ice cream and from there to the nearby bakery. Emily climbed the three flights lo lhe Simkins' Hat, in a big, shabby, made-over house, it's steps rickety, its paint and paper peeling. She set down her bag, knocked and the door flew open. Mrs. Simkins' youngest grandchild, incredibly diiiy, stood there, beaming. He was 8, tow-headed, and wore a pair of his father's trousers cut of! at the knees and belled about his waist. "Hello, Mike." "Hello, Miss Hall." He looked at her solemnly. He said, "Everyone went out. Except me and Grannie." Grannie was in bed. The room was clean enough. Grannie was comparatively clean, too. Her high-necked nightgown was merely grimy, her scant ycllowish- white -fctir was braided and tied wilh ancient ribbons. A sponge balh, an alcohol rub —"Mike, do you think you could find me a clean pillow case?" and the usual gossip. Mrs. Simkins liked that betler than anything else. Her feud with her daughter-in-law. The fact thai she feared the oldest of her girl daughters was up to no good. Bul Sam, the older boy, he'd gotlen himself. :i ioh. . . . Rdiof took carp of the rest of them, after a 'ashion. "Do you know what day it is?" asked Emily. "Friday." "It's your birthday," said Emily. It was now time to produce the cake, the ice cream packed in dry 'ce, the cookies. Mrs. Simkins' faded, sunken eyes were bright with excitement and pleasure. "Put it there," s h e commanded, 'on the dresser, whevo I can see it." When Emily left She was smiling. * * * made her first calls. Rang the office for more. The Costigan family doctor wanted her to go and give a bath and an enema. The Adams child must be taken to the orthopedic clinic. She saw the Bristol boy, recently discharged from the hospital, massaged, his slifl: leg and put him through his exercises. She saw the almost brand new Benson baby, which had been delivered at home, and presided over a bath and a feeding, as the very young mother was slill nervous and incompetent. All in lhe day's work.

"Girl, you have to eat. Come on, you're blocking traffic," he countered as she stood there indecisively. "Ail right," she said reluctantly, as she fell into step beside him.
