Let Your Child Be a Drip when (hey Postponement at the Crossroads "• Those who are inferring, from President- Truman's postponement of "Operation " Crossroads," thnt the Bikini atomic bomb tests were designed; to frighten Russia arc crediting this government -with- more cynicism, bad faith and belligerent posturing than thb miich-criticixed Russians have yet sh'own. 'Jtat.ouly* is. the inference unflnlter- ing "hi "UsV'lAit 'also somewhat illogical. Since Russians not a naval power, any muscle-flexing display of atomic bomb- hij? would probably have moon made OH a land objective if the purpose was to frighten the Soviet Union into good behavior. .^It seems '.'perfectly sensible that ''Deration 'Crossroads" was planned for the announced purpose of measuring. a power which we have already used against the equipment of one bQinch of our national defense which h;Ts never felt that power. Z H also seems sensible and important that congressmen should have the opportunity of seeing at first hand the destructive power of atomic weapons against naval vessels before voting on appropriations for our future Navy. Tie Bikini experiment will be costly, but it might have the effect of saving Vain. American people a considerably larger, sum of its results should have a dttistic effect on naval design and construction. .£ Quite possibly the Russians and the reet of the world were more impressed by the destruction of two cities by two bombs than they will be by the atomic bomb/.s. effect upon warships. Never- tlJeless, it would seem that this country should proceed with the Bikini test at the new date, if only to banish the notion that the tests were planned as a- threat, and withdrawn with the improvement of international relations. Juveniles become delinquents begin to act like their parents. If they raise Iheir children in tlic same fashion as they were raised, we will linvc to build more i>enitcn(lnrles. These words of wisdom fell/ from the HIM of D. S. Hosteller, Memphis FBI chief, Jn a speech to n luncheon club of adults hi Memphis Itys week. He jilso pointed out thnt there is an increase In tlie number of juveniles conviclcd of serious oflenscs. He adds ilia) .something should be done to parents who make no real effort to rear their children. Hosteller spoke words of wisdom. What Memphis needs today—what America needs lodiiy Is parents who have Ihc cournKO to take hold of tlieir children. Parents, who like Ihc prophet of old, can say and menu It, "as for me and my house, we will—" Parents need to know where their boys and girls arc ul night. Being permitted to go out lor the < veiling "just lo ride nround" may well be the danger .signal. Too many parents siiy (hoy don't want Ihclr l)oy or Bill bo "a drip." We need parents lcn;.iy wiio have the conr- a^o to lei their son or daughter be a drip— an honest, well-behaved drip. —I'RESS-SCJMITAIt.

"But, honey—I'm not sure, course, but I've discussed it a liltle with Colin, a long time ago—how aboul college? Wouldn't you like to go on to school?" "Of course! But how can 1? I'm almost eighteen, you know, and there's no reason for the Home to support me any longer." "I thought we might send you to the University," Ann said, sort of diffidently. Susie stared at her, wide-eyed. "Do you mean thai?" "Urn huh. I'm a great devotee of the Gospel of belling On," Ann murmured. Happiness broke over Susie's Vnn's side and hugged her.

"Well, ma'am, I can'l help it when people like mo," Helga murmured. Ann looked at Helga, who was rather good-looking in a big, bovine sort of way. "I suppose not," Ann said helplessly, Ihinking with dismay that Colin was right—she couldn't keep out of personal discussions with the people who worked for her.

(To Be Continued) BV EKSKINK JOHNSON NKA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, April •!. INEA> — Don't tell anyone wo told you, but "Forever Amber" has become forever perpendicular. Hollywood's version of the Irollop uith the wallop went before the cameras this week, with everyone connected with it assuring live / Eric Johnston office, thc Legion ! of Decency, etc., thai Amber will keep bolh feet firmly planted on the floor throughout the picture. There arc only eight bedroom scenes, with Amber actually in bed Sti bill one of them. And then in ' thnt, we suspect, she will keep one foot on the floor.

Whether she will be boiled in oil ssed Into Ihe sea. or parted from 1 her nylons, we cannot say ut th c writers, with the censors oking over their shoulders, are hipping up something really spent.
