BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)

For years, they say, Laval was attorney in France for I. G.

That amounts to one-third the nation's motor transport. The principal headache of this initial gas rationing will com<? when the school teachers who do the registering have to pass on the applications of car owners who feel they are entitled to more than the minimum allowance. Every car owner will be given an "A" card entitling him to minimum allowance of seven units. The trouble will come in classifying or handling the appeals of motorists such as war workers, who feel they will be entitled to B-l, B-2, or B-3 cards of 11, 15 and 19 units respectively.

Main benefit of this interim rationing., is that it 'will serve as an. experimental registration to determine what bugs must be eradicated from the permanent rationing plan which will go in effect July 1. * * * NO SCAMPS, PLEASE We must avoid "scamping," the Maritime Commission's Admiral Emory S. Land told the Trumamn committee investigating national defense, and thereby he brought back a word that hasn't been heart', much in the war production effort. It's a good one to revive. What it means, of course,' is to perform work in a hasty or neglectful manner. "Don't be a scamp" has double meaning during a war. Admiral Land mentioned two other indeterminate factors in the war effort. One, is loafing and the other Is the slowdown. No one can tell accurately how much .they are affecting war production today, but they are evident. Strikes are not serious now. Where the damage comes is in the period of agitation before and the period of let-down after a strike. In the slow-downs, what happens is that someone on an assembly line starts a "Hey! Where's the fire!" or a "What you tryin' to do —kill yourself?" movement among the workers nearest to him. When that spreads, the damage is done. Labor leaders and management alike are trying" to figure out ways to combat it. A good many observers were skeptical when the Army public re- itions staff started its program of laving soldiers make pep talks to workmen in war production plants during the noon hour. In a few instances last winter, plant managers balked at taking the time out of the working shift to assemble big plant forces in cold yards, merely to have speeches made at them. But the Army now maintains that these pep talks do good and show definite results—that wherever one of these delivered, production curves shoot right up. SENATE MUFFED IT Congressmen like' to make speeches about somebody else's shortsightedness in preparing for war, criticizing administrative officials and others who a couple of years ago didn't take the steps necessary to build'up stockpiles and let contracts for munitions and war supplies. But one case which bounces right back on Congress—on the Senate, no less—is the matter of patent law revision now being investigated by Senator Bone's committee, where hearings reveal how war production has been hampered by patent pools and cartels. Way back in September, 1940, Senator Wheeler, as chairman of the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce, introduced a resolution calling for an investigation of the German, control of American patents. The resolution was passed in October, and an application was made to the Senate Committee on Audit and Control, of which Senator, now Supreme Court Justice James F. Byrnes was chairman, for 'funds with which to conduct the investigation. The committee ,ook no action, and the investiga- Grade Allen's Advice Isn't Daffy When It Comes To "Peewee"Styles BY DKK LOWKANCE NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD. — J us t because you're a comedienne, the nation's best-paid conversational babbling brook, doesn't mean you haven'L any clothes problems. • "Worries with clothes," said Grade Allen, "like how to flatter a man without his knowing it and what to do .with leftover spinach, Gracic Allen illustrates two of he style self: tips (1) women." trimmed, lo "peewecs" "Small hats Her bonnet with mink like her for small is mink- pompoms.

Sometimes I'm called a shrimp and once a low character dubbed me 'midget.' Imagine! I just ignored her. But I'm a peewee, all right. Everytime I try to get .something off the top of a bureau I remember that. "Fashions?" she smiled. "Oh yes. think I first became conscious fashions because of my Aunt Bessie. When she went down the Lreet some men always said: 'My, doesn't she look smart' 1 Other nen would say: 'Yes, but why doesn't she pull her stockings up 0 the wrinkles wouldn't show?' Of course, it developed later that Aunt Bessie never wore stockings— but that's beside the point. "My Cousin Mary really helped me, though. She was so big that tent on her looked like a sa- •ong. She was so tall that strip- ng her round and round like a barber pole only shortened her one nch. "I 'owe a lot to Cousin Mary. I've always done the opposite— except in shoes. The opposite would have meant none at all and I prefer shoes to bare tootsies a la Tobacco Road." STRAIGHT LINES FOR ME, SAYS GRACIE The opposite to Cousin Mary when Grade's verbal embroidery .iad been clipped off, turned GUI to be the better type of clothes ense for smaller women. Gracie never wears lines that go round and round, like Cousin Mary's barber pole stripes. Instead all racie's clothes lines are as vertical as possible. She believes, too, in sticking to simple colors—very seldom goes in for prints and then never huge, splashy ones. For hats, she likes them small, never appears in floppy, big ones. "I should make myself into a walking mushroom," she sniffed. "I've learned better. George told me—and once in a while he's right!" Jewelry, too, she keeps to scale. "Some peewees," she noted, "want to look like Christmas trees and what is more pathetic than a Christmas tree out of season? "Someone was telling me the other day that bustles were back. 1 couldn't quite believe it until I happened to look around and, sure enough, there it was. The unique feature of some bustles, I think, is they have sleeves." All of which really turned out to be the starfc of another of Grade's rules for dressing —no gag fashions, nothing too startling t too exotic, "You should see me in a dirndl," she laughed, "I'm a knitting bag with two feet. "Anyway, like I always say, when you get too old- to set a bad example, it's time to start giving Avoid Big Hats, Actress Warns NATIONALS GET SERVICE CHOICE OTTAWA, Ont., (UP)—Canada md the United States have come o an agreement whereby citizens of one country living in the other country will be allowed to decide under which flag they prefer to serve. The agreement, comfirmed in an exchange of notes between Wash- ngton and Ottawa, primarily concerns citizens eligible for Selective Servce in the United States or Compulsory Military duty in Canada. Thus, any Canadian living in ;he United States who has not taken out first citizenship papers, will be given an opportunity to apply for service in the Canadian armed forces before being inducted by the U. S. This agreement applies only to "non-decearent" anadians. Those who have filed first papers—declaring intention of Becoming a U. S. citizen—are being, and will contnue to be, treated as though they were already citizens. This agreement affects the U. S. citizen in Canada similarly, relieving him from the possibility of compulsory military service without a chance of enlisting under his own flag. The Canadian government plans to usk parliament to amend the Naturalization Act to provide the "first paper" procedure of the United States. Canadians in the United States who wish to take advantage of the agreement to return home for duty will be given the proper forms to fill out by their local draft boards.

Take your pick. Anyway, if the Wheeler investigation had been held a year and i half ago, a lot of the dirty linen now being put through the senatorial wringer might have come out clean then and the defense effort would have been just a year and .a half farther advanced with respect to the freeing of foreign-held patents. As it is, ex-Isolationist Wheeler is now in the position of being able to give em a big "I told you so!", if he were so minded. * % * A lot of these German-Controlled patents which the Bone committee is looking into would normally expire in four or five years, so it might seem unnecessary to pass legislation permitting the government to free monopoly hek patents. But it doesn't work on just that way. After an initial or basic paten is filed, improvements in th> process or the product will be discovered, and additional patents will be taken out on them. Tru result is that while the basic pat cut will expire, it is usually ob soletc by t the time it does expire and during its life it has been s prolific that it has spawned cnougl additional patents to keep a mo noply alive forever.
