Congress Is Cautioned on Inflation 6y ALEX H, SINGLETON Washington, 'Dec. 13 (/I 1 ). —House Majority Leader McCormack (D Mas) cautioned Congress today against "releasing the floodlidcs of inflation" as the House and Senate tackled a batch of legislation directly affecting President Roosevelt's anti-inflation - stabilization program. With the administration program for controlling wages and prices, subsidies and taxes under fire, the Democratic floor-leader bluntly asserted "the pressure groups are operating." "Inflation, if it comes," he said, "will have 'a serious effect on the conduct of the war and simultaneously will deal a devastating blow to the fixed-income group, particularly the dependents of servicemen." His statement came as! 1. The House prepared to acl on a bill shifting control of oil and coal prices from the Office of Price Administration to Interior Secretary Harold Ickcs. 2. The House Interstate Committee called a public hearing on a measure to give more than 1,000,000 non-operating railroad workers a pay boost amounting to 8 cents an hour. Despite sharp opposition from the chief executive's stabilization director, this resolution has received senate approval by the overwhelming vote of 74 to 4. 3. House agriculture members demanded immediate action on their measure to create an overall food czar, with control over prices as well as production and distribution'. Passage of this bill would rg- duce OPA to a skeleton, * At stake too, in the senate were the porposed band on consumer subsidies and the measure to increase taxes by approximately $2,000,000,000. Keenly aware of the many-sided onslaught on the administration's program, McCormack deplored the failure of the public to rally to the president's support as demonstrated, he said, by the slight volume of mail he has received on the issues. As chances of a lengthy legislative holiday faded, the possibility grew brighter that house and senate soon will pass a measure giving discharged war veterans, a financial cushion—somewhere between $200 and $500—to ease their transition back to civilian life as'a Christmas gesture of good will. The future of a measure to give servicemen a vote in the 1944 elections remained doubtful. The sen- at has passed a measure placing the soldiers' balloting under state control, after rejecting a bill setting up a federal commission to ur, 2% By Charles Dickens Iar0aitt COPtRIGHT. 1843.

"What may he your pleasure, Sir," he asked, 'with us?" "I fuar that my coming in unperceived," returned the visitor, "has alarmed you; but you were talking and did not heur me." "My little woman says—perhaps you heard her nay it," returned Mr Tetterby, "that it's not the first time you have alarmed her tonight." "I am sorry for it. I remember to have observed her, for a few moments only, in the street. I had no intention of frightening her." As he raised his eyes in speaking, she raised hers'. It was extraordinary to see what dread she had of him, and with what dread he observed it. "My name," he said, "is Redlaw. I come from the old college hard by. A young gentleman who is a student there lodges in your house does he not?" "Mr. E).enham?" said Tetterby. "Yes." It was a natural action, and so slight as to be hardly noticeable; but the little man, before speaking igain, passed his hand across his forehead, and looked quickly round the room as though he were sensible of some change in its atmosphere. The Chemist, instantly &ansferring to him the look of dread he had directed towards the wife, stepped back, and his face turned paler. "The gentleman's room," said Tetlerby, "is upstairs,, Sir. There's a more convenient private entrance; but as you have come in here, it will save your going out into the cold, if you'll take this little staircase," showing one communicating directly with the parlor, "and go up to him that way, if you wish to see him." "Yes, I wish to see him," said the Chemist. "Can you spare .a light?" . * * * '"THE watchfulness of his haggard look, and the inexplicable dis^- trust that darkened it, seemed to trouble Mr. Tetterby. He paused; and looKing fixedly at him in re-r turn, stood for a minute or so, like a man btupefled, or fascinated. At length, he said, "I'll light you, Sir, if you'll follow me." "No," replied the Chemist, "I don't wish to be attended, or an-, nounced to him. He does not expect me. I would rather go alone. Please to give me the light, if you can spare it, and I'll find the way." In the quickness of his expression of this desire, and in taking the candle from the other, he touched him on the breast. Withdrawing his hand hastily, almost as though he had wounded him by accident for he did not know in what part of himself his new power resided, or how it was communicated, or how the manner of its reception varied in different persons, he turned and ascended the stair. But when he reached the top, he stopped and looked down. The wife was standing in the same place, twisting her ring round and round upon her finger. The husband, with his head benl forward on his breast, was musing heavily and sullenly. Tire children, still clustering abou,t the mother, gazed timidly after the visitor, and nestled together when they saw him looking down. "Come!" said the father, roughly "There's enough of this, Get to bed here!" , The whole brood, scared and sad, crept away. The mother, glancing contemptuously round the sordid room, stopped on the threshold of her task of clearing the table, and sat down, pondering idly and dejectedly. The father betook himself to the chimney corner, and impatiently raking the small fire together, bent over it as if he would monopolize it all. They did not interchange a word. * * * 'T'HE Chemist, paler than before, stole upward like a thief; looking back upon the change below, and dreading equally to go on or return, "What have I done!" he said confusedly. "What am I going to do!" "To be the benefactor of mankind," he thought he heard a voice reply. He-looked round, but there was nothing there; and a passage now shutting out the little parlor from his view, he went on, directing his eyes before him at the way he went. "It is only since last night," he muttered gloomily, "that I have remained shut up, and yet all things are strange to me. I am strange to myself. I am here as in a dream. What interest have I in this place, or in any place that I can bring to my remembrance? My mind is going blind!" There was a door before him, and he knocked at it. Being invited, by a voice within, to enter, he complied. "Is that my kind nurse?" said the voice. "But I need not ask her. There is no one else to come here. 1 ' It spoke cheerfully, though in a languid tone, and attracted his attention to a young man lying qn a couch, drawn before the chimney piece, with the back towards the door- ' The siuaent raised himself oa the couch, and turned his head. "Mr. Redlaw!" he exclaimed, started up. .(To Be CoBUaueif) Pilk.nton Wins Award I. L. Pilkinton, state revenue inspector, was recently commended by Murray B.

'.•:'.•.' •.../ .. .S !' » OPA Head Explains Why the Government Is Giving * FREE RED POINTS for Used Cooking Fats O "Behind this plan, effective December 13th, is one of our most urgent wartime needs? says Mr. Bowles. "Every patriotic American wife and mother is asked to read this statement." CHESTER BOWLES Administrator Office ot Price Administration "VI77ARS are fought W with gunpowder. Gunpowder is made from glycerine. Glycerine can only be made from fats. "Behind those few, words lies one of your country's most serious needs. Fats used to be imported in huge quantities from islands of the Far East. Those islands are now in-enemy hands. And the government wants the used fats you can save in your kitchen to make mountains of ammunition, medicines, and other battlefield needs. <'Atol a Premium on Patriotism" "These are the facts as they have been pointed out to OPA by the War Food Administration. And they have led to this new plan: 'Two red ration points free when you turn in a pound of used fat to your butcher.' "This is not a premium on patriotism. It is a way of bringing home to all women the urgent need of kitchen fats to make gunpowder. Moreover, it seems only just to return points for this service, because fats cost ration stamps. Your butcher has been informed of this ruling which went into effect on Decernber 13th." How the Plan Will Work It's as simple as it sounds. All you have to do is fill up a tin can with used cooking fat and take it to your butcher. You don't need to use a special kind of can— any kind will do. And you don't need to have any specified amount of fat; take it to your butcher whenever the can is full. He will estimate the weight of the tin and give you, cash in hand, 4c and two red points for every pound of used fat you deliver. The government does not ask for these fats until you've got the cooking good out of them. But when that is done, every spoonful is wanted. Would it surprise you to learn that just one single tablespoon of fat—just the little bit that is usually washed out of your broilers and roasting pans and skillets--will make five machine gun bullets? Or enough smallpox vaccines for seventy-three men? Answers to Housewives' Questions It doesn't matter whether the fat is burned or black—it still makes crystal-clear glycerine. It doesn't matter whether it's pan drippings, fat from a soup, used shortening, cooking oils, or melted solid fat, And, finally, it doesn't matter how little you save each day. Every drop is precious. Saving these fats and turning them in is not an easy job. But it's a lot easier than doing the things our men must do on the battle fronts, Is it too much for them to expect that the wives and mothers of America will perform this task for them—to help put into their hands what they need to win? They know it is not. They know jhat all their country has to do is ask —once our women really understand.
