The world of books, the realms of abstract tjipught, arc not his world. The •'confusion lie once showed in differentiating between Arnold Bonnet and Benedict Arnold, his har.inesR about thp epcacl dates of Ihe American Revolution, revealed, his unfamih'arUy witli the world of ''book learning." Bill the Ford mind lifts an ujicqnny reajism, moments when it cuts through surface show pnd gels right down to the real thing. Such a moment camo repent ly a,t tlie New York Woijd's Fair. • Ford surveyed the exhibits, remarked fhaj; they could scarcely fail to be an inspiration to young America, and then blurted out: "Look - at the nations represented here. These exhibits, and not tliier wars, show their real character. They t _ have sent )iere (.he things they are real- i ly proud of, the things they want to be judged by. They haven't sent their bombs and poison gas and samples pi' • their concentration camps—they're not , really proud of those things; they wouldn't'want" to exhibit them." Si.%- million people have seen the New'.. York exhibit, but Ford is the first one to 'cut through to that simple truth: no nation can really be proud of its . progress, in newer methods of killing more people quicker. The chest-thumping' abput things like that is restriettd to a few. officials". . A And, even those officials, when they • plan an exhibit that is to show the world the best about their people, do not send the instruments of destruction on which so much of their energies is now centered. They' send the evidence of their progress in public health, in better houses far the people, in the creation of beautiful things and gracious living. They send the evidence of their progress and social vision, the fruit of science turned to man's good, npt his hurt. They send their visions of a better, happier day when man shall really live in pence and dignity in a world made fruitful of life, not death. Why do they not send their newest tanks, their newest bombers, their newest plans for the shatteiing of cities apd tho slaughter of whole populations? Ford has it right; subconsciously they are not proud of those things; it is not for these that they would be known to llic rest of the uorld. ^Ford jias l,j s r ;llll(Si as a)| ftosh |l;(S _H"l to his honor let it always be OUT OUR WAY BLYTIIEVILLE, (AUK.)

But we have not so recorded it here. We have set down, 'lie tried to sto|) the slaughter once, and (hereafter he never ceased to spcaU • out iigninsl it.'" If would be beneficial if every visitor lo the World's Fan- would note What Ford noted—not only tlio presence of'the exhibits which the nations have proudly assembled,. l>»il the absence of the things of whjch they wore not proud, of which, perhaps, {.hey were in their secret hearts ashamed. .SS //Ol/SC'jS The first house entirely built of glass has been set i|p at the New York Fair. Literally, it may be true. But we all live in glass houses, in spile of our delight in throwing stones. That goes for nalions, «.s well as for iiulividuals. We toss verbal stones i\(. the totalitarian countries because they have no liberty. But hayo all Anierjcjms coin-' ploto liberty? Fo\v would ;trgue that they have, and thill is our glass bouse. The British deplore Japanese blockade of their concessions in China. But how did they got those cpiiQpssipns in the iirst pjiicc? That is their glass .house. William Ci'reen of the A. F. of L, a.nd John Lewis of the C. 1. 0. exchange verbal brickbats, but are there no ele- inenls-of glass in the house of cither? Fewer brickbats flying through the air Ipday ivoukl . be a help on every front, international, national, and ptr- sonal. The bfirragc would decrense if every brick-losser would first look over his own house for 'vulnerable elements of glass. We.

"Can't afford it, honey. Got some summer merchandise coming in and i( will take everything'I've got lo swing (he deal." "Then get one and pay for it a lillle each week, Bart," "Never!" lie exploded, and stopped at her frightened expression. "Oh wjiai's the use, Jris? You know how I am about debts am! charge accounts and iiine payments. We're gelling along all right the way we are, and we don't go out enough to warrant laying a lot of money on clothes right now." "We'd go If you cared enough to dress decent Hie way oilier men do, Barl!'' He glanced at her curiously, and !)is mouth tightened hut lie didn't say anything. If ho thought they couldn't afford Hie movies, dances and parties they went to now, let alone any further gadding, Iris couldn't tell from his guarded expression. "If you don't begin lo dress like other business nien do, Bart, everyone's going to think you're not successful or smart. AJ1 the men I know coiini their appearance 50 per cent of the battle." "I'm not buying a suit on time payments, Iris, and I can't afford lo gel one now. I'm sorry. You know I told you long before we married, that a financial handicap was no fun." "II needn't be a handicap, Bart, if you wouldn't be so stubborn," Iris flared, "John Kent buys his suits and clothing on a budget plan." "And Ihe Kenls do not even own their furniture. They live in a rented flal, pay for last year's car out of this year's budgeting, and if anything ever happened to cither of them where would they be?" "Nothing ever does, Barl! I Wish you wouldn't, lorlurc yomv self all the time conjuring up catastrophes that neycr happen. They make ;i lame excuse for tlie way you choose to dress." The sultry thunder-showery air outside became a sissy imitation to the brittle, crackling temper Iris exuded from then on. * '* V CO Bart capitulated.

"Everyone thinks it (s all you own, Bart," sl )e said, irrmply. . "Who wants 1h«m to think anything different? Whatfs'" wrong with having only one dress outfit, Iris? At least I p\vn this." "That gray suit would have given you four ensembles, Barl! Changing coats and trousers 'with yotir blue sujt." ' "Look, honey, J'm not buying that suit. Now forget it, wiil you? You, don't know anything aliout business, and I dp. So let me rnanage (his." Iris die]. She decided It was too hot to eat. Too hot to cook or prepare meals, either.

Things were bad enough, willi the heat willing everyone, without the dean fussing over everything, scolding, questioning, protesting through 'cap)) (jay." ''I could die," Iris murmured, lying flat across her small maple twin bed with only a filirfy printed dimity negligee over her lingerie, "I never want to think of food again." "I'll see if I can collect the makings of a salad, Iris. You rest." Slie grinned, when he left the room. Thero wasn't so rnuch as enough to feed a chickadee in the refrigerator. She had looked, put- ling away the breakfast things. There were no; crackers, apd only the skimmed rernamder of the quart of milk. Nor"was there any bread. * * * DART came back into the bedroom a while later, and" sal down in the chintz chair.

Yet —she believed this. She believed it so much she was making herself miserable over it. Sighing, ho turned to the closet and took down his coat. She didn't understand. She was too young to understand, too inexperienced with life *o know.

Fruils arc ex- •cotlngly valuable in the diei be- laiisc they, are am;ng Ihe richest if sources of vitamin C and are Uso quite rich in pro-vitamin A ir carotene. Tlie Iruils which are laiiso they arc among llic richest, i.cinons. grapciruii, 1 mid limes, ami hcsc which arc yellow colored are ilso Ihc ones which arc most rich 'n pro-vitamin 1 A. Fruits also provide some sugar varying from 3 to 18 per cent, but hey dj not provide much in the 'V.iy ot fat except for olives and •ivorado pears. These arc ex- xcdiiigly rich in fat. Few people realize ivhnl they provide in the way of c.ilorirs. Olives give 30 cnlcrlcs |icr ounce; half an alliga- l-sr pear ly-lll provide from 300 lo 500 calorics. * • * The fuel value of fruits Is usually low because ot the lurge amount of nulcrial taken In relationship 10 (he siren r uonlcnt. liaiinnas give aboul ns many calories an cimcp as fish, bill most fruits contain $6 much water thai the fuel value may bo Ignored. For that reason fruits play an important part In the diet. Fruit gives bulk without calcric cement, uricd fruits, of course, gel rid of the water and thus provide calories in considerable amounts al a low cost. Canned fruits vary greatly in llic ninount of sugar thai, they ccn- tnin, and anycnc who Is planning to use canned fruits as a part of the diet has lo know Ihc percentage of carbohydrate. Nowadays. htwevcr, mnny fruils are being canned wtlliout. added sugar so that 11 is possible to figure Hie diet on Ihe basis of the fresh fruit. When fruits arc cooked, Ibc fibrous ninlerlal which the fruit coiilalns . becomes softened. Tills wakes the fruils more digestible. However, fruits . are ' in general quite digestible, Uie eqsc of diges T tloii depending on the nature of the fruit 'and its degree of ripeness, Everyone knows (hat a ripe apple Is digested with reasonable casa but a green apple may take much longer.' One of Ihc questions most, fre : quently raised nowadays is "the question of eating fruits whicti may have liccn sprayed with toxic materials to prevent infestation by parasites. Under the liws of varir ous stales fruit growers and packers are supposed lo wash fruit to rcmsvc dangerous quantities of Ihesc substances. Special washing solutions have been devised which leiitl to invalidate the loxic sub^ stances which have been Ictt on Ihc fruit. Furthermore, it is advisable for people to wash fruit before eating in older la make certain that any contaminations are removed from the surface. An estimate of Ihe focd value of fruils Is conveyed by the fact that an apple ivill provide 100 calories; three plums or lhree i prunes will give 100 calorics, and n Iwo-inch slice of watermelon will give 100 calorics; a whole orange will p vine 100 calorics, but it also takes a whole cantaloupe to provide 100 calories. For this reason a slice of cantalople, which is very filling, is a go:d substance in a rrilucing diet. Ten Years Ago Today June 22, I9Z3 Chester Caldwoll, Fred Warren and A. E. accompanied fay n. I.
