TUESDAY, MARCH 20, 1040 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ITV» 'Peace' Meeting Hits Hew Snags Picketing Threat Looms at Second 'Cultural' Rally "Boy of Year" Honors Go to Hot Springs Lad NEWARK, N, J., March 29 (fl 1 ) —Delegates to (lie controversial! "world peace" conference—embarking on a tour of American cities— ran into new picket threats today. The second of a series of "cultural rallies for peace" is scheduled here tonight, with the New Jersey Council of Art.s, Sciences unit professions In the role of sponsor. Plans are similar to those for the three-day oratory in which delegates from Soviet Russia and seven other foreign nations participated In New York last weekend. The New York conference was characterized In advance by the U.S. State Department as a sounding board for the Communist propaganda — A characterization which the sponsors of the meeting hotly denied. Announcement of plans for tin Newark session brought from veterans' organisations and other group: a wave of protest similar to thos< which greeted the New York con ference. Pickets were promised b state leaders of the Catholic War Veterans, Veterans of Foreign \Va:s and the Disbaled American War Veterans. The New Jersey Council sponsor- in!; the Newark 1 meeting is a branch of the national organization which °T sponsored the New York session. An "action committee," set up at New York conference announced that after the Newark meeting most nf the foreign delegates would cm- bark on a tour of "as many American cities as possible." A spokesman, said the itenrary was not complete, hut that cities certain to be visited include Baltimore. Philadelphia, Detroit, St. Louis and Los Angeles. * WE, THE WOMEN * Baby Sitters Unnecessary With Entertainment Plan By Ruth MUtett NEA SUff Writer Editor Tells President Of China: Don't Listen to Wife, Even if She's Right NANKING, March 29. (0*1 —An editor who has' gone lo jail nine times for criticizing high Chinese today offered this editorial advice to Act- Ing President Li Tsung-jen: Don't listen to your wife, even if she's right. Madame Li. said Editor Kung Teh-po of National,Salvation Daily, already has begun political activity. Three other women caused their husbands to be "disastrous failures," Kung said. He named these as Mn- dame Chiang Kai-shek, her sister . Madame Sun Yat-sen, widow of the republic's first president; nnd Madame Wang Ching-wei. wife of the Chinese puppet president under the Jimmy Montgomery NEW YORK, March 29. </P>— Jimmy "Stuffy" Montgomery, 14, who refused to let broken tx>m>s stand in his way, yesterday received, tlic "Bov of the Year" award. The Hot Springs, Ark., 85-pound- er, who says his conduct is "only about average," won the title and the amiiml junior cHi/.enship award of the Boys' Clubs of America. He was picked from about 300,000 boys across the country. Eight yenrs ago jimmy had every major bone, hi his body broken In an automobile accident. Today he's football and baseball player and s a member of his Boy's Club box- ng train. Jimmy was chosen "Boy of the Year" for service to his coinnum- ty, his athletic Ability and sports- nanship, his hobbies, and "for his ge in winning his way back to health" after the accident. His award carries a week-long visit here, a two-day tour of Wash- ingtou, U. C., and a two week vacation this summer on the Rod Ryder Ranch at Paeosa Springs. Colo. The low-headed youngster snld the great thrill so far of his New York visit was riding on the subway. "Those subways are really something, 1 * he said, "they go faster than the train did coming up here." Some of my readers report thnt 1 they find they can't stretch their household allowances to cover entertaining at home, and being entertained In their friends' homes. The reason the latter is also expensive Is, of course, because of the necessity of hiring a baby sitter for the evening. For those readers I'd like (o recommend a plan worked out by one housewife and given publicity in the March .Issue of the magazine "To- dny's Woman." In order to cut down on the cost of supper parties, three young couples, all with children, decided to have a buffet supper once a month, with the hostess providing the an- petlwrs, mnln dish and coffee. One of the other couples brought the sulad and a vegetable; the other the dessert. There's nothing new about cooperative dinners, of course. They're as old as the church supper. But this supper dub does two things that make It different. They bring their children will them, fed and In pajamas read for bed—cutting out the necc&sll for hiring baby sitters. And th hostess always Invites an extra cou pie for the evening. So often when couples organise small club In order to hnve some octal life, it soon becomes dull, bee it is always the sume little roup over and over again. In no Ime at all they know all about each ther, what one thinks about thin nd the other nbout thai, nnd the Tunings together are pretty much •f a pattern. Newcomers Lend Interest But bringing in a new couple each Ime helps to enlarge the Kroup'tt circle of friends. And It adcis some lew Ideas, new points of view, new faces to the sociability of thu evenings, Tlie pattern of today's social life has become so dependent on the l>aby sitter and often so expensive for young host and hostess thnt It is more duty than pleasure. ''We've got to find a sitter so lhal we cun go to the Joneses Saturday ht." 'We simply have to have the Smiths and Browns to dinner, soon as the budget will stand some entertaining." These are common cries today. So any scheme to make cnU'itntnhv easier for young couples with chil dren who have to get by on a Urn itcd budget Is worth n try. Japanese. "The ancients had a saying that when a hen crows to announce the dawn it signifies misfortune for the family," the editorial said. "Similarly, when a woman interferes In the government it presages disaster for the nation.'* Spa Radio Station Plans to Move To W. Memphis WASHINGTON, March 29. «•)— Radio Station KTHS, one of Arkansas' pioneer broadcasting units, probably will he moved from Hot Springs to West Memphis.
