But the little South I American nation has a big president, both in size and ability, hen he was elected in 1947 after there had been five presidents in months, Galo Plaza-Lasso established a democratic regime that lias lasted ever sincei I President Plaza, who was bom in Brooklyn when his father was &nister to the U. S., is back in this country for a state visit. A gray- ttg, six-feet-two man who once sold apples on Wall Street, he is trying fe modernize Ecuador the way he modernized his family's rundown f tate. He wiped out political revolution in his country, but he is ing all out for agricultural and industrial revolution. • A SPEECH IN WASraNGTON the other day, he echoed some North American ideals: We must be alert, he said, to defend cedom "through the printed word, in the classroom, in the workshop id the public square; and, if need be, if all else fails . . . then on te battlefield." c Like most other visitors of state. President Plaza would like to i^ange a little help for his country from the U. S. That's to be- flitpected, perhaps. \ But he more than deserves the welcome mat the U, S, has rolled Jit in his honor. After the disheartening blows being struck against l|ee speech and free press in the Argentine, President Plaza"s views the subject, coming from a South American, makes encouraging iding. • * * RURAL ELECTRIFICATION IS FINE, BUT .. . ms YEAR THE NATION'S electric power industary will be celebrating the achievement of bringing electricity to 95 per cent of ^le farmers of America, and we pause for a moment of nostalgia for (gindlelight and the oil lamp. ^ "The disparity between rural living conditions and urban living t nditions is fast disappearing," says Allan B. Kine, head of the Farm ireau Federation, ih commenting on rural electrification. I . But something else will be disappearing, too. For the dwellers in <|ties and towns, the "disparity" Kline talks about was something 1» sort of look forward to when we visited Grandma on the farm, or Ij^k off for a summer at the cottage by the lake. In the evening, the,warm, and sometimes flickering glow of the ,'rOsene lamps gave off a pungence of its own, as much a part of le country flavor as a field of timothy baking in the sun. At bed- ne, the candle that lighted your way upstairs (and sometimes also ;hted an extra hour's forbidden reading) helped remind you of the ''s soft shadows and cool fragrance in the piney woods. Well, the oil lamps seem to be going out in rural America now, ife in the country will be brighter, and electricity will make the tores easier. But we can't help noticing that the catalogs still show ^Jd-fashioned hurricane lamps, and oil lamps with curving, graceful <^imneys. Most of them have wires and bulbs nowadays, but if you ^an back and try real hard, maybe you can catch a faint whiff of Iprosene. ) ^ . |iles Suit To . I Divorce Husband I" ——— ^Thelma Hood filed suit for di- ^rce against Gerald K. Hood in qlrcuit court here late yesterday i|^arging cruelty in the complaint. |The plaintiff ialso seeks custody of one child. She was granted a writ of injunction restraining the defendant from molesting her. The couple married June 4, 1950 and remained together until June 4, 1951, the complaint states. The law firm of Hill and Dolan represents the plaintiff. GRANADA THEATRE if MIDNIGHT SHOW ONLY SATURDAY — JUNE 30 Starting at 11:30 — Doori Open at 11:00 ONLY CAPACITY WILL BE SOLD!

YOUR MANNERS You are well aware of your children's shortcomings. WRONG: Discuss their faults with the mothers of their friends —labeling Johnny as "selfish" or Carol as "a poor mixer," etc. RIGHT: Be loyal to your children—giving them a chance to make the best possible impression on others, something they Couse of Polio it Known, But it Isn't Total Answer The cause of poliomyelitis has been known for some years. It is a virus which is a tiny living organism too small to sec under the ordinary microscope. Knowing the cause, however, has not Drought all the answers to the disesae and there, are many things still to learn. One difficulty which has prevented more rapid progress is the fact that there are few experimental animals which are susceptible to the virus and its behavior is thercfoi'e difficult to study. Furthermore there are at least two kinds of polio virus and what happens to them in the cold months or at other times and places when polio practically disappears has remained something of a mystery. Nevertheless knowledge of the cause has brought some practical benefits. It is believed that the virus is spread by close contact between someone who harbors the virus and a susceptible person. Thus some people may carry the virus without having the disease: they have enough resistance to avoid symptoms and yet may spread the vii'us to others. Tlie virus, too, has been found in water which has been contaminated by human waste and this mode of spread is a possibility though generally believed less likely than direct contact. At any rate, from a practical point of view this leads to the conclusion that it is unwise to go needlessly into an area where polio is more than usually common or to mingle more than necessary in crowds at such times. Medicine cannot yet offer an accepted vaccine which will build up resistance to polio though experiments along these lines have been made and may eventually prove successful. But it is important to use certain precautions which lessen the risk. CHECK ON FEVERS Is addition to avoiding unnecessary contacts when polio is frequent, all children who develop unexplained fever at such times should be promptly put to bed and kept away from other youngsters until a diagnosis of the cause has been made. This is not only best for the sick child (and the illness turns out' to be something else more often than not), but also aids in preventing the spread of the disease. Other steps which are advised can never do if you tell all their faults JMML Today thru Sat. 2 — Big Smash Attractions BETTY GRABLE DAN DAILEY FAST ACTION ON THE RANGE!

It must be emphasized that these precautions are recommended only when there is an unusual amount of polio in the community; trying to wrap children in cotton wool all summer from unrea.«ion- able fear is unwise and unneeded.
