Longon. Nov. 12 — (UP) Buckingham Palace was on an emergency footing today in anticipation of the birth of Princess Elizabeth's baby. Half of the pnlacc staff which customarily goes home at night was ordered to stay at the palace last night. Nurse Helen Rowe, registered midwife who will help deliver the baby, was in charge. The oilier half will remain tonight. The extra staff vigil will continue until the child is born.

Palace sources said Elizabeth was "somewhat annoyed" at the detailed publicity accorded her confinement. The palace would not confirm the names of the staff issued officially until the actual birth announcement. The gossip column of the evening news reported that Elizabeth completed in tho last few duys the knitted garments she had been making for the baby. It said she kept to an all-white layette that would bo suitable for either a boy or a girl. She accepted two such layettes from a concern of which she is a patron and from a nurses association. One was a complete set of knitted garments and some hand made silk dresses, hand embroidered and trimmed at the neck and cuffs with a narrow ruffle. The other was all woolen garments. With it was a set of plastic plates and cups for tho nursery.

KEITH'S JEWELRY 1G9 South Elm Phone 434 Opera Star Is Accidentally Stabbed Pittsburgh, Nov. 12 — (ff>)— Metropolitan Opera Star Raoul Jobin carried on in true theatrical tradition last night despite a wrist stab wound sustained during the third net of Carmen. Although bleeding from the wound inflicted accidentally by loading lady Gladys Swarthout, Jobin continued on stage but fainted as the curtain fell for the end of the act. Jobin, portraying the role of Don Jose, was stabbed during a "quarrel" with Miss Swarthout, playing Carmen, after Don Jose had given up his family and his career to join Carmen and a band of smugglers in the mountains. Jobin sang the fourth and final act as the audience of 3,800 in Syria Mosque was unaware of the incident. ,Later Jobin went to a hospital where five stitches were taken in his wrist. He and Miss Swarthout had appeared as guest stars in the performance given by the Pittsburgh opera company. Max Harrison, president of the opera company, said Miss Swarthout used a real dagger rather than the customary wooden prop after borrowing the weapon at the last minute from Carlos Alexander, of New York, who plays Esca- millio the toreador. NPTA to Fight Bad Movies, Comics Chicago, Nov. 11 — (fP) The National Congress of Parents and Teachers today set up a committee to help wipe out "vicious comic books and objectionable radio and movie programs." The action committee will "work out specific steps" to get the PTA plan rolling. Mrs. L. W. Hugos, association president, said. The plan recently was adopted by the group's board of managers. Mrs. Huges said negotiations with publishers and producers are to be on a "friendly" basis but said a "national house cleaning" is lone overdue. "The time has come, " Mrs. Hughes said, "to take serious notice of the menace to our children from overstimulating motion pictures, hair-raising radio programs and, in particular, corrupting comic books. "Those who control these three mighty mediums, of communications have a responsibility toward the public greater: than that of the ordinary profit-and-loss merchant. Yet all three have, in some degree, abused the public trust. None has done so more grossly, however, than the publishers of comic .

He has proposed marriage and she has accepted-. According to her picture, Ml*a Russell .is dark-haired,: fitrbng- feaured ind no longer /young. Ourand goes down to the dock to meet, the boat that Is to bring her from St. Louis. He is dumfoundetf when an exquisite young blmd creature Introduces herself as Julia. She explains her little de- celt by saying she didn't want him to fall for Just a pretty face. Durand Is enchanted with hsr and' they are married. Certain things puzzle him, however, 'during their first days together. Among them Is the fact Julia has never opened her trunk. When a letter arrivss — her letter to mall hims-ff. Returning from the bank, where ie has arranged to let Julia snare his account, he finds a letter addressed to him from Julia's sister. It says she has received a communications signed with Julia's lame but In a stranger's writing. She demands an explantion. XIII How long he sat and stared at -he letter he did not know. Time lost its meaning. Reading over and over the same words. "The handwriting of an unknown person. Of an unknown person. An unknown person." Then suddenly hypnosis ended, panic began. He flung himself out of his swivel-backed chair, so that it fell over behind him with a loud clatter. He crushed the letter into nis pocket, in such stabbing haste as if it were living fire and burned his fingers at touch. He ran for the door, forgetting his hat. Then ran back for it, then ran for the door a second time. In the street he frantically hailed a coach. "St. Louis Street, and quickly! I must get there without delay!" When the careening vehicle finally came to a stop in front of his house, he jumped out, slapped coins into the driver's palm, ran for his own door a.s if he meant to crash it down. Aunt Sarah opened it with surprising immediacy. "Is she in?" he fung into her face. "Is she here in .Hie house?" "Who?" She drew back, frightened by the violence of the question. But then answered it. for it could refer to only one person. "Miss Julia'.' She been gone all afternoon. She tolc me she going shopping, she be back in no time. That was 'bout 1 o'clock, I reckon. She ain't come back since." He ran up the stairs full lilt. He slood there in their bedroom, breathing hard fro m (he violence of his ascent bul otherwise immobile for a moment, looking about in mute helplessness. His eye fell on the trunk. The trunk that had never been opened. Draped deceptively, but he knew Jt now since that Sunday, for what it was. He wrenched off the slip cover and the initials came lo view ar'ain. "J.R ," in paint like blood. He turned, bolted out again, ran down the stairs once more. Only part of the way this time, stopping halfway to the bottom. "Run and fetch me a locksmith!" he exploded to Aunt Sai-Ph. Then he .changed his mind; "No, wait! That would take too long. Bring me a hammer and a chisel Have we. ; those?" . '•I "reckon'so." Sre scurried for the' back. • . . When she'd handed them to him, he ..sped upward from sight again.

Police spread an alert for the automobile seen prowling Boulder streets Tuesday night, when 18- year-old Theresa Foster, a quiet, studious freshman in the College of engineering, said goodbye to hoi- friends at a campus religious club and slaiied walking home alone. Her savagely beaten body was found beneath a bridge al a lonely spot 15 miles south of hero yesterday by two hunters. She had boon beaten into unconsciousness, raped and strangled. Except for moccasins, bobby sox and coat, she was nude. Detectives admitted that Iho strange car soon cruising through Iho slreots tho night she disappeared was a slim clue, but they had few others to go on. Three automobiles fitting the description already .hnd been checked and "cleared." In one of them a bloody newspaper was found, but police said it had no connection with the slaying. Dr. Angelo Lapi, an autopsy specialist frdm Denver, said the girl's scalp was "beaten to a pulp." "This stands out as a brutal type of sex slaying," ho said. "Only a maniacal individual could do it." Lapi said the slayer had struck the^girlts head with a gun butt and raped her while she lay unconscious. Then, he said, the slayer apparently "pushed her face into the ground, and twisting her jacket collar, he strangled her." ; The girl's hands, covered with blood, wore thrust upwards as though shielding her face. A pair of slacks she had been wearing and her underclothes were piled leatly on the bank of the steep ravine where the body was found.

GILROY, D.D. What of the past, present, nnd future? Among almost nil peoples there have boon wise men, soothsayers, majn'einns. who professed to have an uncanny knowledge of events and an insight into the future. But Ihc prophets of Israel are unique in history in the place that they occupied in Iho life of Iho nation and in their character of courage, firmness and integrity. Thc threats of kings or tho violence of Iheir enemies never dissuaded them from their purpose or turned them from their task of declaring the judgments of God against tyranny and iniquity. Who were these prophets and what exactly was thoir role? They were many, as wo can see from various references in the Old Testament. But thc prophecies of only 12 "Minor Prophets" nnd a few "Major Prophets," have come down to us. The "Minor Prophets" wore not ininor in thc sense of being inferior in character, courage or forcefulness to the "Major Prophets," but only in tho fact that thoir prophecies and thoir careers were on a lesser scale. Also, here and there we have glimpses in thc pages of thc Old Testament of prophets of whom we have no recorded writings, but whose integrity and moral courage revealed the high quality of the prophetic office—men like Nathan, who rebuked King David in a display of fine fearlessness (II Samuel 12), and Micaiah (I Kings 22>, who had equal courage in speaking the unpleasant truth to kings. Tho Hebrew prophets had convictions, and they suffered for their convictions and their words. But they never flinched, or compromised the word of God. What, then, was their role? Two views, sometimes conflicting, prevail. In the one view these He- brow prophets wore foretellers, predicting events to come, reaching oven far down into the future. In their prophecies many have seen a plan of the ages, though the plan has not always boon the same. The end of the world has boon predicted again and again on the supposed evidence of tho prophets, but the world slill stands. Thc "key" to the prophecies is an uncertain thing. In the other view Ihe prophets were forlhtellcrs, speaking to their times, with their prophecies lo bo interpreted in the light of those times, and thc events that wore happening. For my own part I believe that there is truth in both these conceptions. Thc prophets could sec the hand of doom where evil reigned. They foretold dire happenings, but they gave glorious visions of God's purposes. Whether in foretelling or in forthtelling, it is tho moral qualities of vision and of judgment that dominate all. We read the prophets in vain unless wo get Iheir moral message. The Doctor Says: By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service A person is often culled "hysterical" if ho or she has ceased to bo reasonably calm and raves in an excited manner. This meaning of "hysteria," however, is not tho way doctors use the word. Medically speaking, hysteria is used lo describe those people who have disturbances in fooling, are paralyzed or unable to move, or have convulsions which are not caused by any true disease of thc nervous system such as an infantile paralysis or a brain tumor. It is also used for a kind of mental condition in which there may be a loss of memory or a multiple personality. In hysteria, an attack of convulsions is often started because of some emotional situation. Tho convulsions allow the victim of hysteria to escape from a difficult situation. Of course, not all convulsions are caused by hysteria and they must be differentiated from tho convulsions produced by epilepsy or from other nervous conditions. Frequently Affects Limbs Loss of power and muscular movement or paralysis due lo hysteria may occur in almost any part of the body. It is most frequent in an ;irm or leg. Here again it is important and sometimes difficult to make a correct diagnosis. In this form, as in other forms of hysteria, the probable cause is an unconscious attempt to get out of a difficult situation. The change in sensation often present in hysteria i.s a most interesting condition. The ability of some part of the skin to "feel" is generally lost entirely; a pin can be stuck deep into that area without causing any pain. The treatment of symptoms of true hysteria i.s frequently difficult. The cause of the conflict must be sought and appropriately dealt with. Gradual persuasion and re-education i.s helpful in some, but other methods which are familiar to specialists in this field must be used on many occasions. Indeed, the successful treatment of hysteria is a challenging, difficult, and frequently insoluble problem. QUESTION: My five-year-old boy faints easily. When ho comes, to, he vomits. ANSWKU: This child .should have a thorough examination, possibly by a nerve .specialist. 11 is impossible to guess at the cause without thorough study. DOROTHY DIX Continual Arguer is crazy. Dear Dorothy Dix: Heaven help me. I am married' to a man who is a continual arguer. He does not agree with anybody on anv subject in tho world. Whether it is business, religion, politics, how to rear children or anything else, he i<. .-,„;.," j (| anc j j g c |,.j v j n g Ine Although he never has made a success of anything himself, he does not hesitate to tell other people exactly how they should manage their affairs and how they would become millionaires if they would only take his advice. Isn't there some way that these self-elected oracles can be silenced and made to realize that a man doesn't show how smart he is by differing with everybody else's opinions? He just proves that he is too dumb to learn anything. TIRED WIFE Answer: Certainly there is nobody in the world who gets on our nerves so much as the chronic arguer. He or she is like a pebble in the shoe that irritates us to madness, for the one thing that none of us craves to hoar is criticism. We don't want to be told of our mistakes, our children's faults, our poor taste in dress, the mean things somebody said about us, what a poor cook one's wife is or of what a dub one's husband is in business. Arguers Never Get Anywhere We want to have our fur rubbed the right way and for our friends and relatives to keep out of our hair. We want people lo give us the glad hand and use plenty of soft soap in dealing with us. If you will notice among your acquaintances, you will sec that the arguers never get anywhere. II is the yes-ycsers Who pat us on the back and say pleasant things to us whose fortunes we push. Now it is unfortunately true that there is no way that arguers can be exterminated and the world thus made a pleasanter place lo live in; but they can be suppressed, and f knew a man who had a formula for doing it that worked. When he foil into the clutches of men and women who fell it their sacred duty to toil him how silly and wrong all of his ideas were, he never tried to defend himself. He merely said: "Really!" And that stopped the arr.uers in their tracks. For you can't ^o on arguing forever about something in which your victim doesn't seem to be even interested. There is no such Knockout blow as silence can give. Just try it and two tropl snective. Then suddenly. at '(!,_ shift, it exploded into recognition. There was too much of each dross.

Pope Congratulates Truman on Election Win Vatican City, Nov. 12 — (If}— Pope Pius XII congratulated President Truman on his election victory and the president, replying, said he was humbly seeking divine guidance in the quest for peace, the Vatican announced today. Tho Pope's message expressed hope the president's work would be crowned by peace and prosperity. The pontiff added that these wishes were accompanied by prayers for the president's family. Replying, the president thanked the pontiff and added: "Our fields of work, while distant, have some objects in common: the happiness of humanity, peace and concord among tho nations of the world. Tho times arc difficult and events are grave with consequences. In a spirit of profound humility, I ask guidance of divine providence."

POOR OLD MAI0S ' Answer: When girls who are nice nnd attractive and who would like to marry never have a'chance at a wedding ring, it is almost always the fault of the parents. Sometimes it is because they don't i want their daughters to leave them. Sometimes it is because they have all sorts ol foolish notional, of it not being safe for an up-to- date girl to go out without Father or Brother to protect her. Often it is because the parents want th$ girl's pay envelope, or because ' they are sick and want to turn • thoir daughters into nurses. ^ Bul I would say to you 'four sis« ters: Don't give up the ship.
