Geography, and other even more vital factors, have put the remaining., members of the Big Four I t — Russia and China — rather far i 'afield. It'is perhaps natural that at times they should view the war obelisk from different sides. Thus we have Vice President \ °"Wallace expressing the grave con- corn that "unless the western democracies and Russia come to a satisfactory understanding before this war ends. I very much fear that World War No. 3 will be inevitable." And China is beset with many doubts, as I reported from Bombay last January after visiting .Chungking. Not only in China but in India, and in smaller eastern countries, there is anxious speculation whether the war is going to demonstrate : that east is east and west is west, and that the relationship between the two is going to be on this basis i ; -' of aloofness. The Orient, which wants to regard the Atlantic charier as the pillar of fire to lead it to'a new world, is quietly expressing much uncertainty as to its real significance. I was shocked to find the widespread fear that the charter may be designed only for the ''white races" and that it doesn't apply to Asiatics. Some of the more suspi- ciaus minds even say they believe that Britain and America are planning to exploit the Orient after the war. encountered many queries e)low 102; No 3, 99—101 1-2; No 3 white 121 1-2 Oats: No 3 mixed 03; No 2 white H4 1-4—3-4. NEW YORK STOCKS New York, March 16 — (/T) — ! Scarcity of stimulating news inspired further profit cashing in today's stock market and. while ;\ number of favorites managed to touch new highs for a year or longer, the majority of leaders took a roet in minus territory for the first time in a week. The list was uneven at the start and the drift mainly downward after mid - day. Russian reverses at Kharkov caused some potential buyers to withdraw. Investment and inflation factors continued as trend props. Declines of fractions to a point or so were plentiful near the close. Dealings slackened on the retreat transfers running to around 1,000.000 shares. the abate - n • year proposal, as the powerful Republican membership lined up torit and some Democrats indicated privately they would vote with the Republicans. Some appeared ready to seek a compromise at partial abatement of 1942 taxes. Frozen egg liquid is being shipped in cellophane bags as part of the Lcnd-LUeasc program. Land Commissioner Sees Many Lawsuits Little Rock, March 16—W)—Land Commissioner Claude Rankin said todny a large number of suits may result from failure of the new act 94 to authorize issuance of quitclaim deeds to mineral rights on state lands sold between Sept 15, 1939. and Feb 25, 1943 "We'll probably have a lawsuit every time a piece of the gets valuable," he said Rankin related that Act 221 1939 reserved to the state mineral rights on lands sold by the commissioner but this year's net 94 provided the rights should be conveyed in all future sales and should be vested In the buyers of land since 1939 sued yesterday snld the cotnmis- I sioner hns no authority to issue of | quit - claim deeds to the mineral rights not conveyed in previous deeds This, Rnnkin declnred, makes buyers of Innd since 193!I owners of the properties' mineral rights but unable to gel n deed to them without a court proceeding HnnUin s;iid about 6,000 . deeds An attorney general's opinion is-I were involved ONE OF THE GREATEST MOOD-MUNI TONICS Y ° Buu $r You cclrls who suffer from simple nnemtft or who lose BO much during monthly periods you feel tired, wcnk, ' <>«OT*«J out"-<luc to low blood iron-try Lydln Pinkhnm'B TABLETS—ono of the otit ana qnlcfcc.it home wnyfl to help build tip i red blood to get more stronKth—ln Biu-li cnses. act Plnkham's Tnblotn to- Follow label directions.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, March 16 — HP)— Wheat futures today advanced around a cent a bushel in light trade but in the last hour hedging sales entered the pit and much of the gain was wiped out.

So far as the United States is concerned, there is no strong disposition to charge her with having ulterior motives. The query is being raised, however, whether she will have the tenacity to carry out the terms of the charter. A lot of people in the Orient are worrying lor fear America will retire to isolation after the war and leave Asia to hoe its own row. But Britain and America aren't alone doubtful quantities from the Oriental standpoint. Russia also is suspect, though she remains an menigma to the east, as she does to many in the western world,. I Now most of this doubt, and fear I and suspicion is due to lack of un' derstanding. When I was in Chung- king a considerable number of publishers and other prominent newspaper men gave me a tea party at which they put me on the carpet for a grilling in regard to such searching questions as are cited above. They were anxious to get the truth, but it was clear that in many particulars they were far from having a correct picture of their western Allies. They lacked the true facts. Of course the uncertainties which are troubling Allied minds aren't confined to post - war problems. We are reminded of that daily strategy. Russia wants that second front, and China feels that she has been left out in the cold through the policy of making Kilter enemy number one. Obviously then Mr. Hull is right in his view lhat a full exchnage of information is necessary between the Allies. This ivould seem to be doubly true since"there recently has risen the delicate question of ter- itorial readjustments after the war. Will Russia expect to retain foreign soil for defensive purposes? Will the other Allies need bases invarious parts of the world? Will subject peoples be given their independence under the Atlantic charter if they want it? There are many other burning issues to be settled sooner or later. If we wait until after the war to deal with them, it may indeed result in another conflict, as the signs now read.

March 16 — <fP) — Party lines were drawn up in the House of Representatives today for a pay - as - you - go tax battle which may echo in 1944 political campaigns. Republican leaders were lined up for and Democrats against the Ruml plan to skip an entire income tax year, with both sides predicting a finish fight on the floor. Democratic leaders mefc.and decided to support a tax collection system, without any abatement, as approved by the ;Ways and Means committee. The Republican steering committee already had decided to go all out for the pay - as - you - go plan advanced by Beardsley Ruml, New York banker, and embraced in modfiied form in a bill by Rep. Carlson (R - Kansas.) A conference of Republican House members has been set for Thursday to align party strength behind the abatement proposal. The Ways and Means committee probably will report formally today u bill imposing, effective July 1, a 20 per cent withholding levy against the taxable portions of wages arid salaries, to be applied to actual taxes as now computed. Attending the conference of Democratic leaders were Speaker Rayburn, Majority Leader McCormack of Massachusetts and ranking members of the Ways and Means committee, Chairman Doughton of North Carolina, Cooper of Tennessee and Disney of Oklahoma. . As the meeting adjourned. Rayburn said: "Sp-jaking for myself, I'm going down the line for the committee plan." Others said there would be a •battle to the finish" on the abate- a-year issue. The Democrats decided to arrange long debate, probably beginning next Monday and lasting most of the week. They indicated that there would be no effort to obtain a "gag" rule that would prevent amendments from the floor. Ruml plan supporters, defeated in committee by a 16 to 9 vote intend to ofier their proposal as a substitute for the committee bill when the debate begins. Chairman Douahton said after the conference "I think the Ruml plan is worse than no plan." declared himself oppose to cancellation of taxes in wartime, and added "we are willing to fight it out on that issue." Disney said that "for me the forgiveness of taxes is a moral issue and we are going to the country on that issue. Nevertheless, there were signs of concern among some opponents of Flashes of Life By The Associated Press The Supervisor Ca*ches Jefferson City, Mo. — Sen. Joseph Falzone introduced a bill in the Missouri legislature to let St. Louis county hire a dog catcher. But, he explained to the Senate, "a dog catcher got off with a little terrier of mine when I was a boy, and I've despised the name ever since." So, if his bill passes, St Louis county will have a Supervisor of Rabies Control. Censored Cash Dallas, Texas' — Mrs. Billy N. Schuelen received a letter from her husband, serving with the Army in North Africa, saying he- was inclosing a five-franc note as a souvenir. He forgot to inclose the note: There was one in the letter, anyhow — autographed: "Here is a present from the censor."

A chief, petty officer in the ticket line ahead of him looked familiar. Fred yelled. His father, Maurice Claeys, 42, turned in surprise; they'd thought each other thousands of miles apart.
