Hal Boyle New Life Without Husband i NEW YORK (AP)-"A woman behind closed doors is one of (he most tragic things in the world," said Olive Clapper. "I know widows who have lived for years behind locked doors. "Their trouble is that they refuse to give to life. They just sit and nurse their sorrow. It's the easiest thing in the world to do. But it is destructive to a woman in every way—it can destroy her health, her personality, her very life." . "Mrs.^Clapper's own world fell apart Feb. 3, 1944, when her husband, Raymond Clapper, the political columnist, was killed in a plane crash while on a wartime mission in the Pacific theater. She tells the story of her happy marriage—and how she built a new life of service after her husband's death—in a warm-hearted and inspiring book, "One Lucky Woman." Since most wives today outlive their husbands, Mrs. Clapper believes they should face up realistically to the prospect of widowhood. Here are some of her suggestions: •'1. Keep up any skills you hav —just in case. A woman who was * secretary should keep a typewriter around—and use it. If she was a nurse before marriage, she should continue doing voluntary nursing. "2. Even if a widow has no occupational skills, I'd advise her to find some kind of work outside the home—even if she doesn't need the money. "Work is the great consoler. Get out among people and don't hide yourself in sorrow. "3. Many women, after a period of widowhood, hope to remarry. But since men are dying faster than women, the chances of a woman finding a second helpmate are meager. It is belter for her to face up to this—and adjust to the prospect of a single life. "4. Don't impose yourself on your children, or try to run their lives—or the lives of your grandchildren." Mrs. Clapper, attractive and happy at 65, has lived up to her own creed. "I never had any resentment or bitterness over Ray's death," she recalled. "He died as he would have wanted to—and I feel he went out in glory." His editors suggested that she carry on his column. Mrs. Clapper felt this task was beyond her powers, but she had had experience speaking before women's clubs and she filled her late husband's lecture engagements. In the years since then she has busied herself writing and speaking and serving as an executive of CARE. Last spring, President Kennedy appointed her co-chairman of the American Food for Peace Council. A career of service has widened her horizons, left her no time for useless mourning. Looking back across a crowded lifetime, Mrs. Clapper repeated the lines with which she closed her book: "I'm convinced that love, real love, never dies. It follows the beloved forever." She feels she has, indeed, been one lucky woman. May Oust Albania WASHINGTON (AP)- Rumors are circulating in Western diplomatic quarters that the Soviet Union may force Albania out of the Communist bloc's Warsaw Pact. These rumors are being carefully studied by U.S. and other Allied officials and suggest the possibility that the Communist camp is grappling with its worst internal crisis since 1948. In the quarrel with Moscow, which broke wide open at the current Communist party meeting in the Soviet capital, Albania has the support of Red China. The struggle between the Soviet Union A VISIT WITH CARL SANDBURG - President Kennedy visits in his White House office with poet Carl Sandburg, who was in capital lo speak at Civil War centennial exhibit at (he Library of Jiwgrcss. Sandburg, the biographer of Abraham Lincoln, holds a pillow on his lap which he picked up from the corner of the sofa as he sat down to chat with chief executive. Sandburg Sees Kennedy As A Great President WASHINGTON (AP) -White- haired Carl Sandburg spoke of bloody battles of a hundred years ago and what they mean to "the present hour of fate and history." And in a twist of time and mood, the Lincoln authority spoke his mind on more recent presidents, John F. Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower. The mercurial, 84-year-old poet put in a full day in the capital Wednesday and said his piece on a wide range of subjects, from books to fallout. He had a chat with President Kennedy and lunch with the Secretary of the Interior Stewart L. Udall, and then went to the Library of Congress for the press j review of the centennial exhibition of the Civil War. In the evening he delivered the address opening I the exhibition. At an afternoon news conference, Sandburg had a few things to say about Kennedy, former For Insurance On dwellings, household goods, buildings and automobiles See Dean Berlin, Agent 109 E. Second Phone CH 2-2804 President Eisenhower and other matters. President Kennedy — "Chances arc entirely he's going to rate as one of the great presidents. He's a great relief from the press conferences of Dwight David Eisenhower." Eisenhower—"The most ungrammatical president we've ever had. He has yet to know the people of the United States." Fallout—"I'm 84, I've had my life. What do I care? There are those I love—I worry about fallout for them, but for myself, I've had enough fun." Many Arrests Made In Egypt BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — The Syrian revolt has touched off a wave of arrests and reorganization in Egypt that diplomatic sources say is more widespread than President Nasser has admitted publicly. Nasser even may have been forced to share some of his power with two long-time associates. The arrests extend into the army and air force. Nasser's government has admitted the arrest of 40 civilians and confiscation of property of 167 more. The government said they were reactionary obstacles to Nasser's goal of Arab socialism. and Red China presumably has been intensified by the Soviet- Albanian, dispute. Albania, in itself, is relatively insignificant. But as a pawn in the struggle between Moscow and Peiping it could be critically important. Says Rayburn . Seems Better DALLAS, Tex. (AP) - Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson visited Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn, D-Tex., at Baylor Hospital again Wednesday and said Rayburn appeared "considerable better." However, a hospital bulletin reflected no change in the condition of Rayburn, stricken with incurable cancer. Needles Are Lost WASHINGTON '(AP)-The Air Force says it can't find 350 million copper needles strewn in space to test prospects for a jam- proof radio system. A Midas satellite, fired into orbit last Saturday from Point AT- guello, Calif., ejected the tiny copper wires, called dipoles. They were to spread out and form a belt around the earth that could be used to bounce radio waves halfway around the world. Wednesday night, the Air Force announced that its Lincoln Laboratories, in charge of "Project West Ford," reported no radar contact had been established with the needles, each 7-10 of an inch THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 26, 1961 long and one-third as thick as * human hair. : At launching, it was said it might take three to four days to determine by radar whether th« needles dispersed as planned. Plan A Vote On Pensions NEWTON, Kan. (AP)-The Harvey County commissioners ordered a referendum at the general election in 1962 on a pension plan for county employes.

Mon. - Tues. - Thurs. - Fri. — 8-6 Weds. — Sat. — 8-9 Nobel Prize To Novelist STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) The 1961 Nobel Prize for literature was awarded today to the Yugoslav novelist and prewar diplomat Ivo Andric, 69. The prize, worth $48,300, is the first Nobel award ever to go to Yugoslavia. Andric was nominated for the prize last year and was eliminated only in the last round. Andric's greatest work is an historical trilogy - "Miss," "The Travnik Chronicle" and "The Bridge on the Drina." It and most of his work are about his native Bosnia and its people. The Royal Swedish Academy of Letters said in its citation that Andric was given the prize for "the epic force with which he has depicted themes and human destinies from the history of his country." The academy has 18 members. The chair of the late U.N. Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold, one of its most prominent members and the winner of the 1961 Nobel Peace Prize, is still empty.
