Minister Resides in Washington 2 Years By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON - Checking of IWffie Minister Winston Churchill as merely a temporary visitor, the three most important representatives of for- felgn countries in Washington since we entered World War II are England. Lord Halifax, the USSR's Maxim Lit- inoff and Dr. T. V. Soong. Until the other day. Lord Halifa> and Litvinoff were the only representatives who have cabinet rating at home. Then quite unexpectedly Dr. Soong. for two years China's financial and lend-lease expediter here was appointed foreign minister ol China. That title is probably the heading for a new chapter in one of the most amazing political careers in the turbulent history of modern China— but a career which has been practically unknown outside the small circle of Occidentals who know their Orient like a book. Even, as recently as a few weeks ago, I have heard government officials who should know say: "Dr. Soong? Oh, yes, he's a member of that Soong family in China." A member of "that Soong family" he certainly is, but here is as good a place as any to put in that if it hadn't been for the financial wizardry of . V. Soong, Brother-in- law Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek's great revolution might have died a- borning. To understand the new foreign minister of China, one must have some picture of his family and his background. Sixty-odd years ago, a penniless young Chinese immigrant was selling hammocks to help work his way through Trinity college (now Duke university) and worshipping ardently in the Southern Methodist church HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS ngress Hears "State of The Nation* Message Edson in Washington Price Gougers Squelched by Publicity where shortly before he had been j christened Charles Jones Soong I f (Charles Jones was the name of his Ieerence sponsor). A few years later, "Charlie" Soong gfaduated from Vanderbilt and went home to Shanghai to become a missionary and a publisher of Bibles. It was there he married and it was in his house that ''the Soong dynasty" and the great Chinese- revolution which was to elevate its first great leader, Dr. Sun Yatsen, to near sainthood, was born.

Every one of "Charlie" Jones Soongs six children got their higher education in the United States. The two youngest sons are now prominent in banking circles, one in San Francisco, one in Chungking. The three daughters married the three greatest leaders of modern China. Chingling became the wife and inspiration of the late Dr. Sun. Mei-ling married Generalissimo Chiang and has fought shoulder to shoulder with him. Ailing, the political genius of the family, married Dr. H. H.

In spite of he fact the present price administration now functions largely on the basis of Presidentail orders, and although there has been no direct legislative action to back up Administrator Leon Henderson, the record of the country in complying with the 60- odd price ceiling orders is really good. It speaks wonderfully well for the behavior of the country and the willingness of the merchants and manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, brokers and commission men and sades- men to comply with orders which have cost them money by cutting into their potential profits. Only real power which the price administration has to enforce its ceiling orders has been the weapon of making public information on cases of non-compliance. This weapon has been used only 19 times. And in only three of these cases has it been necessary to mention the offender by name and adress as "frequent and persistent violators" of OPA price schedule maximums. All 19 of the cases had to erations before Wool worth, ot al, had hung up their signs. Dr. Kung now is China's minister of finance Young T. V., Harvard, '15, Columbia university post graduate, and sometime clerk in Wall Street, first leaped from obscurity when he was able to put millions of dollars into the hands of Brother-in-law Chiang for successful prosecution of the revolution. By 1932, he had increased China's revenue tenfold and balanced China's budget. Toppled from power a year later in one of the Soongs' periodic family squabbles, he went on to found and become chairman of the board of the now powerful Bank of China, to stabilize China's currency on a sound basis and to become the money getter for the heroic defense against the Japanese invasion. The Socng family rows never last for long. Dr. Soong's elevation, at 47, to foreign minister, is proof of that. no names and steel ALLIED BATTERIES As low As $3.49 Ex.

Squeal on Heels Of the 16 cases where were mentioned—11 iron scrap dealers, three wastepaper dealers, one nickel and one copper scrap dealer— the publicity given the case has been merely to announce the violator of the price schedule had agreed to make refunds to customers of all amounts collected in excess of the maximum prices set by OPA. This restitution of ill-gotten gains and war profits also speaks well for the integrity of the country nnd the effectiveness of the OPA methods thus far. It does not mean there has been no bootlegging of strategic materials and plenty of profiteering and collusion between buyres and sellers which the OPA hasn't learned about. But the tendency of everyone is to squeal when he gets stuck and to tell tales on the chislers. Information on the bad acting of the Public Heels No. 1 comes into OPA from many sources, and just as in the FBI, the informers are protected. Patriotism prompts the reporting of non-compliance to price ceilingsche- dules and public opinion is enough to carry on from there. Every complaint is investigated by OPA field men, evidence is carefully weighed before publicity of any kind is given to non-compliance and every effort is made to secure refunds before Uucle Sam's long finger of public contempt is put on the offenders. Responsibility for this program of compliance has been placed with the enforcement section of OPA's legal division. Associate General Counsel Brunson MacChesney, son of Gen. Nathan MacChesney of Chicago, is the chief enforcer. After absorbing college at Yale and Michigan, government at Harvard and law at University of California, MacChesney did hitches in the Navy, was secretary to CCommisioner Landis of the SCE. worked in the anti-trust division of the Department of Justice and taught law at Northwestern. Now he's getting ready for P-day. Blondes - Brunettes By LUCRECE HUDGINS AP Feature Service Writer Ask a blonde what her favorite color is and it's ten to one she'll tell you "Blue." Ask a brunette and her answer will probably be "Red." Why? Well, because they were born that way. That's the story of an eminent American psychologist. He explains that blondes are descended from ancestors who originally lived in regions a long way from the equator. In these lands there is a predominant blue light reflected from the sky. Such light, rich in ultra-violet, causes a pigmentation on the retina termed, incorrectly, 'greensightedness.' Therefore, according to the same psychologist, the blonde forever after prefers blue. But brunettes are descended from ancestors dwelling in more tropical climes. Here infra-red and heat rays are predominant and cause a pigmentation on the retina termed "redsighted- ness."

Boxing has had comparatively few of these dreadnaughts and only n half dozen or so havev actually challenged for the championship. Budd;, Baer, who gets his second shot a', the title against Louis on Jan. 9, is one of the biggest. He weighed 23V/i for his first Louis fight and expects to weigh around 2-14 for his second. The biggest fighter to fight for the title—and also to win it—was Primo Camera. He weighed 260 in fighting trim. Camera, the Aumbling Alp from Italy, won the title in 1933 by knocking out Jack Sharkey in C rounds. He lost it to Max Bacr in 1934, being kayoed in 11 rounds. Two other big men held the title. Jim Jeffries, who won it in 1899, weighed around 230. Jess Willard, who won from Jack Johnson in 1915, weighed around 240. Perhaps the second largest man to fight for the title was Abe Simon, 254, who was knocked out in 13 rounds by Louis in 1941. Tony Galento, knocked out by Louis in four rounds in 1939, weighed 233. Max Bacr, champion in 1934, and Luis Firpo, who fought the hectic'battle with Dempscy in 1923, each weighed about 210. WHAT CAUSES EPILEPSY?

Lester Sumrall, world traveler, author, evangelist is coming to the Hope Gospel Tabcrnnclc for throe services beginning Friday night. Mr. Sinnrnll, who WHS here for ten dnys almost two years ngo immcdiatc.- ly after returning from a trip around the world will be received nt the Tabernacle by a cnpucity crowd Tabernacle officials believe. When he was here in 1910 the Tabernacle WHS packed time und again to hear his heart gripping sermons, filled with information and experienced gained by traveling in some 38 countries of the world, including Japan, China, Russia, Germany, Grcut Britiun, Norway, '•Sweden, France, the countries of South America, Australia, and the isles of the sea. The three meetings, Friday night, Sunday morning and Sunday night, at the Tabcrmicle will be the evangelists last appearance in the United States, as he lenves next week for Mexico, and then to Central and South America, where he will spend the next year. He lias recently concluded a tour of Alnska, where he traveled from (own to (own by plane to preach to the people. It is felt thnt the Rev Sumrall will be able to give some interesting light of the war situation in the light of the Bible inasmuch as he has been in the countries and cities now in actual combat, including Manilla, Tokyo, Moscow, Berlin, London and others. He has heard the people talk; has calcn with them and lived with them and knows what the wrld is thinking and talking about. The service begins Friday night at 7:30.

Both are musical comedies, and "Panama Hattic," too, has been on Broadway more than n •(/ year. Dorothy's 57th Street kitchen door is just across the. hall from Rosie's kitchen door, which makes it nice because the widowed Rosie, once "the prettiest girl on the east side," is the Q mother of these three. Dorothy, a tall slender brownette, is one of those rare hostesses who can make a stranger feel he is paying n return visit'at the home of f rinds. Joseph, 4(i, is the first of Lew and Rosie's four children. He's tall and & wide-shouldered, bears a strong re- . semblance to his father.
