EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.), COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MAY 4, 1942- I EDSON IN WASHINGTON ^WASHINGTON. May 1—Drastic of.thousands of state and affecting, labor, traiispor- ttion, distribution of agricultural jjroducts and building codes will tte W«rU'« GrMt Artist •ttv of pt «r ei "THi TELEPHONE HOUR" TONIGHT GRACE MOORE wlffcrfc* I*H Sy«pfco»ic Orchestra * * * * * * * * * 8 P.M. C.W.T. follow the conference of state and federal officials in Washington on May 5, 6 and 7. Most of the changes will be in the nature of wartime modification of state laws handicapping the war effort. The changes will be some emergency agreements to suspend enforcement of laws, where such alternative rests with the state attorneys general. There will be some exercise of wartime emergency powers granted to state governors, giving them authority to suspend i state la\vs interfering with the war effort. The majority of the modifications will come only after action by the state legislatures. Forty- three of the state legislatures meet regularly in 1943, five having met special sessions to enact emergency this year, but a number have held war measures. Other special sessions may be called during the remainder of 1942 to ennct relief laws or to amend existing codes. It may therefore be six months or a year jefore many of these changes can )e made, but taken together they vill unquestionably provide asweep- ng change of state and local laws. The nature of the changes needed extremely varied.

Enactment of uniform limits on load weight and truck length s needed, or at least upward revis- on in states having sub-standard imitations. BLUE LAW BARRIERS States having Sunday blue laws nay have to suspend their enforcement to permit truckers to haul war goods on Sunday or to permit three-shift, seven-day operation of war plants. The 11 states with laws prohibiting the employment of women between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. may find it advisable to .suspend those laws to permit around-the- clock war production. Slat: s which prohibit or restrict the importation of milk or eggs from other states may have to suspend these laws in order to make it possible to provide sufficient milk or eggs for the armed forces encamped within the state. With shortages of critical building materials, state or local building codes requiring the use of these critical materials in new construction niay have to amend their restrictions to permit the use of substitutes. These are the types of state law which must be repealed or amended if war production is not to be stymied. CALLED BY FDR The Washington conference of state and federal officials to discuss" these needed changes was called by the President, and it is unquestionably one of the most important conferences of local and national governments ever convened. A number of state delegations are being headed by their governors, and the 200 cr more state officials attending will have the opportunity to meet and talk over the war economy with practically every leader of the war effort in Washington, including WPB Chairman Donald M. Nelson, Secretary of Commerce Jesse Jones, Secretary of. Agriculture Claude Wickard, Price Administrator Leon Henderson, Manpower Director Paul V. McNutt, National Housing Agency Director John B. Blandford Jr., Defense Transportation Director Joseph B. Eastman, Lieut. Gen. Brehon Somervell, head of the Army's Service of Supplies, and numerous other authroities on special phases of war production. Credit for inception of this conference and the background studj of state laws which makes it possible goes to the marketing laws unit of the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce. Their research, now under the direction of Major A. H. Martin Jr., began as a WPA project to codify all the of metal helmets, for use by civilians in case of air raids, has been prohibited... Civil Air Patrol calls itself "The Flying Minute Men." CHTCAGO (UP)—Twenty thousand "key" children in the United 1 States have been issued a code of' wartime conduct designed to in- I'luence youth's thinking to help win the .war. The code, formulated by J. Edgar Hoover, FBI director, and Willian Reed, manufacturer and originator of the Reed Poll for children, has been sent to children eight to 13 years old in schools, Y. M. C. A.'s and Sunday school*. These youngsters wil be monitors to influence the actions of other children throughout the nation. Among the wartimes rules of conduct suggested are: 1. Don't be discourteous to those with foreign names—they may be j as patriotic as you are. . Help conserve our nation's resources by collecting old newspapers and metal or performing some similar task aiding our war effort. 3. Respect the rights of others- crime doesn't pay and ends in tragedy. 4. Prepare through education for the future—tomorrow you will be called upon to lead the nation. 5. Keep confidential any important wartime information you may hear—the enemy may be listening. 6. Report any acts possibly harmful to the war effort to your parents—they should pass them on to the FBI, national clearinghouse for matters pertaining- to sabotage, espionage and violations of national defense laws. —IN— "Campaign Against Sin" Emmanuel Baptist Church Half *Moon May 2-13 __ — - — — 7:30 P.m. PITTSBURBH (UP) — "Female justice" is being meted out in the courts here because of the war's drain on manpower.^ jury boxes are predominantly feminine, with most of them being filled by panels that are at least three-fourths women. All-w-omen juries, once the nightmare of legal traditionalists, are becoming increasingly common in Allegheny County courts. Tilt' men are being excused wholesale from jury duty because they are needed in the district's many defense plants. "The courts are very ready to excuse men these days who hold national defense jobs," one judge explained. Opinion in courthouse circles is that the women, in most cases are efficient and conscientious jurors, except that they are inclined to be "soft-hearted." Severe on Morals "Often women are reluctant to return a verdict carrying a heavy penalty,' a spokesman from the district attorney's office said. "In murder cases, it's difficult to get them to send the defendant to the chair." Although Lhe women jurors are easy on defendants in criminal cases, they make it much tougher for the defendant in the civil suit as a rule, on attorney remarked. He explained Lhe women are inclined to award large damage verdicts, which cannot always be sustained in higher courts. The women are more severe than men in morality cases, it was said, and are often at a loss in connected with business or stock transactions.

The loveliness of your nails, figure and hair also depend upon your vigor and well-being of your body. Not every girl can be a sylph or a siren, but if her health habits are above reproach and she knows how to dress and make up, she certainly can be attractive. If it has been years since you've had a physical exaininiation by your physician, try to see him soon. This is especially important if you are contemplating dieting, strenuous exercise or massage routines, or a heavy load of new activities.

Main The other day a handful of American flyers roared into the sky above Australia to meet the challenge of twelve Jap bombers. In the fight the enemy was routed and three of the bombers were destroyed. All of the Americans returned to their bases. AIL but one. This one rammed his plane head-on into one of the Jap bombers. Men and planes crashed flaming into the sea. No one knows just why this boy chose this way ; ; ; Engine trouble? Perhaps. But he could have bailed out. An accident? Those who saw it said the crash was deliberate. No, up there in the blue Australian sky the thought probably flashed through the boy's mind— u l'll get one—for sure." And maybe as he crashed, a picture flashed across his mind—of a laughing girl far away with a funny nose—of a woman with brave smiling eyes saying goodbye. This is what it costs many of our boys to be good Americans. Most of us can't be that good. But most of us can do better than we are doing. Most of us can We can say "no" to something we've wanted awfully much, and lend the money to our government to help in this all-out effort! We can give until it really hurts; That's being good Americans! MEAD'S 4 -; "V 322 MAIN STREET fame tffat£6a$Hez gftfototfctie*
