Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn About Those Two Crossword Puzzles Nobody Solved Confucius say, Chinese laugh when he see friend fall off house. Which, without worrying further the good name of the Reverend Piaster Kung, can be translated as merely an Oriental version of the Anglo-Saxon familiar, "Misery loves company." And today's column being a discussion of typographical errors, you know instantly what I am go- inp to report: Somebody else made the error — not The Star. One of our subscribers was in the office last week to complain that we had fouled up the crossword •puzzle. Personally I wouldn't know. r l never worked one in my life. They use words you certainly don't see in books, and I view crossword puxzles intolerantly. We have killed the puzzle time and again, and then had to put it back in the paper — its devotees are a small minority of newspaper circulation, but very vocal. They scream with high fidelity, both treble and bass. So the puzzle is back in the paper ^to slay, and so this subscriber Ironies into our office and tells us we've fouled it up. That had us stumped. The crossword comes to us in a single matrix. Hot metal is poured on it in the casting box and we have a plate. The plate is printed just as we received it in matrix form from our feature syndicate. Typographically speaking, nobody on the newspaper touched it — but it's fouled up, you sayV I I saw Managing Editor Paul H. •Jones poring over crossword proof sheets with our subscriber, and pretty soon Jones came over to me and said, "It looks like the syndicate has gone and done it." So I wrote posthaste to our syndicate, NEA Service, Inc., 1200 West Third St., Cleveland 13, Ohio. And here is NEA's reply, dated March 12 at Cleveland: "Yes, there was a foul-up in two of our March crossword p, puzzles. The artist inadvertently transposed the diagram. We discovered the error and, on February 25, issued corrected mats and put a note, calling editors' attention to the error, on the Daily Picture Magazine. "Apparently some editors overlooked the, new mats and the correction; notice, because we.-,,have had several letters palling, --..our attention to the faulty"- mats. So, to guard fe 1 against a recurrence, we have revamped '.our' system of issu- Jng corrections. "In tHc ri Mfufure, any corrections cabfidd '<<ln"--th"(5 service . will not be printed'ttn'ton'6'of'-the/' proof sheets, but will be printed on a separate sheet, oh colored j stock."

Steven also told a Senate Mill tary Appropriations subcommittee that it will b necessary to continue the draft as long as the army maintains a strength of more than 600,000 men. During the fiscal year starting July 1, Stevens said the army will have to draft nearly 300,000 men. "This we shall do at the rate of approximately 25,000 men per month," he said. Draft calls have been running st he rale of 18,000 men monthly for ,h past several months.

Stevens said 'he army's experience in h past 10 years is that 'so long as we are required to maintain an army much in excess of 600,000 men. w shall hav to resort to induction to maintain our orces."

Challenge Shed McCarthy By WARREN DUFFEE ; WASHINGTON, (UP) — Adlai E. Stevenson has challenged President Eisenhower to shed Sen. Jo| seph R. McCarthy "as a party spokesman" to prove h is the unquestioned leader of the Repub lican party. Stevenson declared -that Vice President Richard M. Noxon's 1 speech Saturday night confirmed his belief that "McCarthyism was injuring the government, dividing the nation and diverting the attention from the real issues." Nixon's address was the official Republican reply to a speech a week earlier in which Stevenson I' charged that Mr. Eisenhower had embraced McCarthyism, The vice president did not say so Saturday. But he clearly had the j Wisconsin Republican in mind [when he said that men who have |done good work hunting Communists have "by reckless talk and iquestionable methods made them Iselves the issue rather" than the I'cause they believe in so deeply. Stevenson, 1052 Democratic ^presidential candidate, fired back late yesterday in a statement issued through the Democratic Na- P. tional Committee here.

HAAKINSON WASHINGTON, (ffl— Sen. Aiken (R-Vt), spearheading the administration's farm program, squared away today for Senate storm. a gathering The Senate test on the program, backed by some Democrats and Republicans and outspokenly opposed by others, may come on the decision of Republican Leader Knowland of California to call for action on a wool production bill. Sen. Ellender- (D-La) heads a group, including some Republic- cans, seeking to attach to the wool measure a two-year extension of present high-level fixed government farm President price supports. Eisenhower and Secretary of Agriculture Benson argue such' high-level supports should expire at the end of this year and be replaced by flexible lower-level price props. Aiken, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, and Sen. Anderson (D-NM), former secretary of agriculture, in separate interviews, promised a floor fight against the Ellender proposal. The point out that the Agriculture Committee is only part way through public hearings on main features of the new program, including flexible price supports and a 2'/a-biilion-dollar "set aside" of surplus cotton, wheat, butter and dairy products.

The cases first lasted four hours !rom 8 a. m. to 'noon. Shortly after noon, Communist artillerymen trainined in Red China opened fire on the strategic French bastion in North Viet Nam.

They Frowned at Taking Baby on a Pleasure Cruise But Ended Up Entertaining Her By HAL BOYLE ABOARD THE MAURETANIA AT SEA W) — A baby girl is almost as rare on a pleasure cruise as a baby elephant. When my wife booked passage for three on an 18-day voyage to the West Indies and South America, the Cunard Line agents were perturbed to learn that the. third member of the family was our 8- month-old daughter, Tracy. "We are well set up to care for infants on our transatlantic voyages," they- said. ''But, frankly, we don't encourage the taking of infants en 3 long tropical pleasure cruise, and it 15 rather. . . urn. . , urn. , . unusual, to say the least." This upset us. My wifp, Frances, had looked forward to this cruise for years — ijs kind of a Jate honeymboon to take the place of the one we couldn't afford when we were first married. But Tracy hud come as a late surprise in our U>es, top, and we would have turned our backs' on 18 days of Paradise if it meant leaving her behind. "Why, they forget so quickly at that age," said Frances, "Tracy probably wouldn't know us when we returned, if we went on the cruise without hpr, and that would break my heart." When we told the ship line officials we either had to sail as a family trinity or forget my wife's long dream of a cruise, they relented. They said Tracy could come along if she agreed not to eat her baby-size life preserver or try to enter any gin rummy tournaments in the lounge.

WALZER NEW YORK,, (UP) — Tax relie actual and anticiapted is th prime reason for a rise to ne\ highs since 1929 in industrial stocks in a period of business recession, Wall Street sources said today. And, conversely, these sources added, high taxes brought a 'decline in stocks in 3953, the record year for business prosperity. Last year with taxes high and relief in sight the tendency among stock traders was to sell stocks that would establish sizable tax losses. These losses were used to offset capital gains and could be carried forward for five years to offset other capital gains and partially to offset other income. So it was that this type of selling brought stocks down in a year when steel operations, construction and many other major lines set records, and General Motors was able to soil more than $10,000.000,000 in autos, refrigerators and diesel locomotives 1 . On Jan. 1, tax loss selling was out of the way. That took some pressure from the market. On that day also the excess profits tax expired and individuals were given a tax reduction of around 10 per cent. This situation was immediately reflected in better demand for stocks and higher > prices followed, notably in industrial Issues.
