The law is known as the McCar ran Act after its author, the late Sen. Pat McCarran (D-Nev). Under it, the Communist party must list its officers and members with the Justice Department and! account for its contributions and expenditures. The law also requires registration of "Communist action" and "Communist-front" groups. Today's ruling paves the way for the Communist party to carry the case to the Supreme. Court.

GOLDSMITH WASHINGTON (UP) Th e Senate anti-monopoly subcommittee is drafting a sharply worded report crilSeizing Eisenhower administrn- ion's power policy, it was learned odey. Informed sources said the rcoor: srobably will not be made public until 1he start of the new Democratic-controlled Congress although ts present chairman, Republican Sen. William Langer (ND1 has 3ubliciy rapped th e administra- . : on ? s power policies and Dixon- Yates contract. The report is expected to ndcl 'orce to the drive for a congressional investigation . of the Dixon- Yales controversy, the utility cor.-.- psnies, and power policy and monopolistic practices in general. Sonrte Democratic Leader Lyn doti B. Johnson (Tex.) *or rtne, h;is [jromir.ed a "ventilation" of the Dixon-Yates contract. He said it should be exposed to the glare of a ''New Mexico sun'' — a clear indication that he favors an inquiry by the Senate-House Atomic Enor- gy committee is just "part of the broader problem."

He told police one of his artificial legs made of wood anc aluminum, was shattered when he was knocked to the ground beside his shoe shine stand. His Social D finking Dear Miss Dix: Andy and I have been married for ten years and have three children. When we were first married, my husband disaprov ed of drinking, but slowly he has overcome that prejudice to take an opposite view. For the last year or two he has been quite a heavy d-rinker. Every 'occasion" is an excuse for drinking; I just dread family celebrations and holidays since I know how they'll end. Andy claims he isn't an alcoholic, or even a heavy drinker. He says I just use his periodical indulgences as a justification for nagging. He resents all crit icism, pleading or advice. The chil- ren are beginning to observe the difference in him, and are noticeably losing i-espect for him. Then, he accuses me of turning them against him. We have always been looked upon as good hosts; our home is charming. I am a good cook and we both ove people and entertaining. I am now losing heart for all these gracious things since I know every dinner party will result in a drunken uisband. Some of our friends are naturaly aware of the direction in vhich things arc drifting and they lave tried warning Andy, but theii efforts are as futile as. mine, don't want a divorce; I just want to restore my husband to normalcy. M. D A Tough Problem Answer: You have a hard, bittei road ahead in your desire to res tore Andy—not only to normalcy bu to self-respect. Two important facts must be borne in mind. First, you cannot accomplish anything with out outside help, and, second, you can do little without Andy's cooper ation. Since any talk from you i bound to be labeled as nagging, a friend, relative, business associate doctor, or anyone whose opinion would carry weight with your hus band, could do the talking for you It must be pointed out to Andj that his livelihood and social posi tion depend on his future conduct Don't apologize for him when h gets intoxicated before guest's, don' cover up or lie about his conditior As he seems indifferent to the el feet of his intemperance upon hi own family, his return to prope values may come through the pity correct my mistake? It E. A. loyee to a coveted job. Once your usband has awakened to the fact hat his drinking is out of control, oncrete help can be given, especi- lly through a skilled agency such s Alcoholics Anonymous. To learn lore about the problem you face, ou misht attend an open meeting f A. A.~ or seek further information trough the Information Center of he National Committee on Alcoho- ism, 2 East 103rd Street, New York, N. Y. I also recomend read- ng the "Primer on Alcoholism" by Marty Mann, which contains a chapter on "What to do about art Alcoholic." The dangers in excessive social drinking, are fortunate- y well-recognized, and help in curb ng it are available to anyone. De- initely. you arc not fighting alone, and the co-operation open to you vill, I sincerely hope, restore peace :o your family. Answer: Y6U certainly were a bit silly, and my guess is that the boy glanced just once too often at another girl, thereby bringing out the jealousy in you. Send him a card for the hoildiays, say you are sorry for your childish behavior and hope the New start. catt see a fresh Dear Miss Dix: My husband and I, together with his best friend and his wife, go out quite frequently together.
