SALVE. NOSE DROPS THIS CHRISTMAS HELP TO RESTORE PEACE ON EARTH- T HIS year our memories of other happier Christmases are more vivid than ever. The stockings, the trees, the carols, the family reunions—memories of all of these make us yearn more strongly than ever for the safe return of our husbands, brothers, sons and daughters who are far from home. . So the foremost hope of all of us is that peace shall once more return to this earth—and soon. You can help to speed the day of victory and peace by giving War Bonds and Stamps this Christmas. Every War Bond, every Stamp, you buy and give helps mould more bullets—load more shells—launch more ships—lift more planes into the skies! Every War Bond, every Stamp, you buy and give will help to dictate the terms of the Armistice—and write a, peace that will endure. So give U, S. War Bonds and Stamps to everyone on your Christmas list. Give and give generously! Remember—every War Bond and Stamp is more 'than a present for the one who receives it.

You tear apart the baby rattle and see what makes Ihe noise Inside, but there is a veil covering he unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united slrenglh of all the .strongest men .nat ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fanc'y, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nolhing else real and abld ing. No Santa Claus?

U.S. Congress Adjourns for the Holidays By ALEX H. SINGLETON Washington, Dec. 22—(#")—Members of the 78lh Congress went home today to celcbrale Ihe Chrlsl- mas holidays and lo recharge Iheir political batleries for Ihe opening of a presidenlial campaign year. They will return Jan. 10 to come to grips wilh a balch of queslions direclly affecling the country's wartime economy, of challenges lo President Roosevell's melhod for holding Ihe inflalion line, of issues cenlering around laxes, wage increases, subsidies and appropriations. As the final gavel fell lale yes- lerday lo end a session which saw the administration give ground in turbulent batlles over home front policies, there appeared litlle hope of peace between the executiv branch and a coalition of Republicans and southern and farm stale Democrats. In (he final days, President Roosevelt's Capitol Hill stalwarts won a temporary truce in some of the pending fighls, hopeful lhat a "cooling off" period would shift sentiment, that the constituents back home would rally to Iheir support. Two of those questions — subsidies and taxes — await Senate attention; a third, that of wage stabi- lizalion, resls in Ihe House. Here is how Ihey were left: Subsidies —. The House and Senate agreed to postpone until Feb. 17 a showdown on Ihe question of oullawing consumer food subsidies. The truce was reached by extending the life of the Commodity Credit Corporation until thai date. The subsidy ban was atlached to an- olher bill, passed overwhelmingly by Ihe House, which granted CCC a continuance until July, 1945. Wages — The House Interslate Commerce Committee sidetracked a measure to give 1,100,000 non- operating railway employees an across -Ihe -board, eight -cent -an- hour pay boost until after the recess. The Senate passed the bill by a vole of 74 lo 4, despile Ihe administralion's prolesl that it would wreck the stabilizaion machinery. Taxes — In he final minules, Ihe Senate Finance Commitlee okayed a measure calling for $2,275,600,000 in new laxes, less lhan 20 per cent of. the amount the administralion described as necessary lo drain off "surplus" money and combat inflation. The bill awails Congress' return. Marked for quick attcnlion when a measure lo provide mustering out pay for servicemen. The Senate already has approved a bill providing for a sliding scale discharge pay ranging from $200 to $500,dependent upon the lenglh of service. Meanwhile, an effort is being made to work out a compromise on legislalion lo give soldiers a vole in the November eleclions, one which will salisfy bolh Ihose who claim Ihe federal government should make arrangements for the balloting and those who maintain il should be handled by the stales. During ils first year this Congress has: 1. Gone on record for postwar international cooperation to maintain just and lasting 2. Continued for two years the end-lease agreements. 3.
