May 17 (AP) Paving repair crews quit Tuesday at the courthouse in the interest of "proper administration of justice." Air hammers, jack hammers and pneumatic drills rattled and rumbled under District Judge R. F. Deacon Arledge's window. Be sure it's PURE CANE With Prayer Meetings NEW YORK, May 17 (AP) It's time for prayer at Grand Cen-. terminal.

Ralston Crosbie Young, who is Red Cap 42, leads a ittle group-down to Track 13 three times a week at noon. There are lawyers, physicians, railroad men, elevator operators, clerks and others who come back again and again. They sit in an day coach to pray and talk informally about God and their daily 'Jives. The group changes from day to day, but Young is always there. the dim light of the coach in the underground yards, his confident voice guides the talk.

There are seldom more than 12 in the group. BUt jn a year hundreds of, and a few women come to the meetings.

They say that they sometimes hear it on the air as "LYOO-iss" that is, with a long (yoo) sound in the first syllable. One reader states, "Whenever a broadcaster refers to John L. LYOO-iss, it strikes me as an in sufferable affectation. Can that be the correct pronunciation?" It is, if we are to believe the elderly dictionaries. But the truth is that "LYOO-iss" is an unnatural and labored pronunciation that acts as a decided stop-light of speech.

I have never heard any person named Lewis use any pronunciation but LOO-iss. (Incident ally, my in-laws are Lewises.) As for the name Louis, it too is sometimes heard on the air as "LYOO-iss," but it is entirely incorrect and without any dictionary sanction. The "yoo" sound does not occur in the name Lucas either. Union Rejects Ford's Offer To Open Units (By Associated Press) A proposal by the Ford Motor Company that operations be resumed in all but two of the firm's strikebound buildings was flatly rejected Tuesday by the Congress of Industrial-Organizations United Auto Workers. The company had proposed that the work stoppage be lifted immediately in all departments except the Rouge building and the Lincoln-Mercury plants, where the UAW charges the company with speeding up assembly line production.

Emil Mazey, UAW secretary- treasurer, branded the proposal to limit the 13-day-old walkout as fantastic. The strike has made about Ford workers idle over the nation. Ford has denied the speedup charges. At South Bend, CIO-UAW pickets at the strikebound Bendix Aviation Corporation, clashed with city and plant police in an early morning melee. There were no casualties.

Later, however, an augmented force of pickets attempted to keep plant guards from entering the gates. Aided by the city police, however, the guards forced their way through the picket lines.

Young himself insists his religion makes him a better Red Cap. Many letters and personal words of thanks testify it is no idle boast. THERE WAS, for instance, the Tman coming through the terminal his wife's body in the baggage car.

He went to the office and for Red Cap 42. The man -vvanted to tell Young how his wife trOiad spoken of him again and again.

He spite the elderly dictionaries, and some diction teachers, the oo sound is all but universal in the American pronunciation of such words as lewd, lubricate, lucid, ludi crous, luminary, luminous, lunatic, lure, absolute, alure.

resolution, revolution, lute, lieutenant, etc See the American College Dictionary by Random House. Now this column is devoted -to good speech and correct pronunci-tion. But it draws the line at priggish and affected tricks of elocution such as "Lyoo-tenant Lyoo-cas Lyoo-iss, the lyoo-gyoo-brious lyoon-a-tic, commited syoo-i-cide ahfter listening to Syoo-per-man (Lieutenant Lucas Lewis, the lugubrious lunatic, committed suicide after listening to Superman)." That such pronouncing fancy-work is correct and cultured is pure moonshine and nothing more. It's as out of place in the American scene as the monocle, the silk topper, and the lorgnette. I am very earnest in urging my readers to shun any type of swollen, snobbish speech and pronunciations that are affected, too precise, or agonized.

That kind of speech is as vulgar as overdressing.

Routine removal of tonsils and adenoids in children (where no infection is present) should not be done because the child undergoes an unnecessary surgical operation.

In many cases, the child's general health becomes worse because he has not the protection of healthy tonsils and adenoids to filter out harmful organisms and the poisons they manufacture. It has been found that youngsters who have had their tonsils and adenoids removed find it difficult to keep a cold in the nose and head; instead it is more apt to develop into bronchitis, bronchopneumonia or even pneumonia. Dr. Gaddy states that while the chances of a youngster getting infantile paralysis are not as great as some physicians have reported, in cases where tonsils have been removed, when it does develop it is generally of the serious bulbar type with paralysis. progress-!

people who travel often are flustered not sure of themselves," he adds. "I am one of the railroad's close contacts with them. I often talk to them, but never unless I see it is all right." He has many stories to tell. There were soldiers back from the wars the man who berated his wife the salesman who had too many drinks the cripples, the blind, and just ordinary men and women. Red Cap 42 carries their bags and sometimes talks to them.

He must know when to talk. There have been no complaints. Many come back. The fame of Red Cap 42 has spread. YOUNG WAS born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1896 and went to Sunday school and church as a boy.

But following his father's death, he left school after the eighth grade to work as messenger and sell magazines to help support the family. Church dropped into the background. He came north before World War I and worked in the ship yards. In 1924 he went to work as a Red Cap. "I was ashamed of my job," he says.

"If I saw one of my friends come into the waiting room, I would dodge around a corner." His easy laugh tells how he feels now about those "years of shame." About 10 years ago he renewed his boyhood interest in religion. That interest grew. Soon he was being asked to speak at churches in and around New York. Now he talks about twice a week and has more requests than he can fill. STILL, HE WAS not satisfied.

"I am not a preacher," he explains. "I am a layman. But I believe we can all let God help guide our daily lives." It was in that spirit that Young and an elevator operator in a near-by building began td meet each Wednesday in 1945 to read the Bible and pray. Soon others joined them. At Easter that year, railroad officials gave permission to use one of the stored cars on Track 13.

I The idea has grown. Young hopes some day there can be a little chapel in Grand Central Terminal where those of any faith can come to pray. So far, that is just a dream. "I am proud of my job," Young says happily. "I believe it helps me do a little bit of God's work.

And God helps me carry part of my load." Guard Slaying Laid To Slavs BUDAPEST, Hungary, May 17 (AP) Hungary has sent a note to Premier Marshal Tito charging Yugoslavs have killed another Hungarian guard on the frontier between the two countries. The note said Imre Puskas, a sentry, was hit "by several hundred rounds of shots" from the Yugoslav side of the border early Saturday. It said the guard was on Hungarian soil. The statement said the guard had stopped an unidentified civilian when he was felled. The note demanded that "the civilized and democratic government of Yugoslavia" put an end to the border incidents and pay compensation to Puskas' family.

Puskas is the fourth Hungarian patrolman to be reported killed this spring in such incidents. The Yugloslavs have accusecr Hungary of similar incidents, but the news has not been published here.

About the time it was discovered that infected tonsils caused rheumatism, and rheumatism caused heart disease, many parents thought it wise, as did some physicians, to remove tonsils that were not infected so as to prevent heart disease in the future. Unfortunately, many do not realize that the tonsils are placed in the throat as a sort of filter to remove harmful organisms from the blood.

Tonsils, unless infected, should remain in the throat till the child reaches teen-age and thus past the age pf children's infections measles, scarlet fever, diptheria and others. However, even when tonsils and adenoids are not infected, most physicians advise that they should be removed if they are so large that they obstruct breathing. In the Indiana State Medical Association Journal, Dr. E. T.

Gaddy states that tonsillitis followed by infections such as rheumatic fever, inflammation of the lining of the heart or inflammation of the kidneys, should be cause for tonsil removal as soon as the infection has passed away. Japan, Red China Trade Deal Reported TOKYO, May 17 (INS) A Tokyo newspaper reported Tuesday night that 38 business firms in Communist-held Peiping have arranged for a heavy exchange of in dustrial goods with a number of Japanese businessmen. ihe Jiji tress saia 1-1 lse-mm, a Chinese businessman, has contracted on behalf, of the Peiping firms for one billion two hundred million yen worth of goods to be imported from Japan in exchange for Chi nese materials. Spokesmen for Gen. Douglas MacAfthur's economic and scientific section of occupation headquarters said they doubted such a major barter deal had been completed.

They said, however, they would have to check their records before they could flatly deny the newspaper report. 'Jiji said the commodities to be acquired from Japan include rail road sleeping cars, medicines and tea. The Chinese Communist firms were reported to be seeking, in addition, contracts for machinery, lubricants, gasoline and other industrial goods from Japan. The newspaper recalled that Premier Shigeru Yoshida, despite his rightist political policies, has fre quently displayed a desire for commerce with Communist portions of China because of Japan's continuing dependence upon raw materials available on the Asian continent.
