BLTTHBVILLB (AW,) COUE1EB NEW8 Mt<* I pw sooth. of 40 BUM, , HM lot tbr*f ooMd*. M mtlr MXM. (10.00 r*r I /vfotto for Today ,,/i. new phrase lifts crcpL into the. T 4nvpri<;^n vocabulary in the past year. H jp- "cautious optimism," and it is ap- pli^d exclusively to the sUUe of mind pf £«jr public servants wlio are eiignged delicate business of-putting the )iinl-won peace on a sound and stable footing. Caiitious optimism may not be a n^w.thing. It may be'lh'c emotion felt by .i bridge player who has just bid a slar|i : and needs to pull oft' one all-important finesse to make it. Or it may be {he feeling of a man in a poker game with a hole card paired and a suspicion that the persistent raiser neit-to him is bluffing. . If those definitions are correct, t^en cautious optimism is a mixture of tiojEp 4pd uncertainty. The term im- pjifl no lick of courage, only prudence. It 'fe t.he caution, not the optimism, which is hesitant, ',Jt is probably well th^t \Ve have public servants whose sentiments have given rise to this new phase. For it n«ems ,£hat the sentiments of the American people en masse are not of n cautions variety, at least not where thp matter of a sound and. stable peace is concerned. It sometimes appears that the majority opinion on this subject is of a profoundly pessimistic nature. Th'ere is p. great 'deal of talk about an inevitable atomic war with Russia. A smijll- fer group, equally pessimistic, suspects an-Anglo-American conspiracy of try-' ing- to encircle Russia and goad her into war. ; And there seems reason to believe that a large segment of our imputation just, doesn't give the matter much thought, one way or the other. •So diplomatic forecasts of cautious optimism have doubtless served as a fiafety valve when affairs didn't unite work out as hojjed. Had the public servants gone forth with bubbling asstir- pnce to the London foreign ministers' conference last fall, let us say, the • actual results might have evoked a, reaction which would have badjy shak- err public faith in our lea.dership. The trend of recent events, how- ever, mAkwrit^eenj that our diplomats may be able to put a.lighter emphasis on the caution ^on> now on. At least, Russia, whlch'^ caused the tempering of confidence with caution in the first place, ha* shown herself somewhat more tracable of late. She hasn't tipped over the applecart in the UN Security Gpur\cil, an^ her r*pr«s«nUitive at the tfmierence hasn't been quite the ty Molotov <>t pther me«tlnps. It is still im|>08stl)l« to foretell which way the.R^sian bbar will jumj). Kut in the brief hi'slpry of postwar ef- fprts toward lasting peace, it is encouraging to reflect that no crisis has come off quite as badly as most people anticipated. So, perhaps, we-ordinary citi/ens might take our motto from the diplomats, not faltering . j n our determination to reach the safe plateau of a warless world, but proceeding cautiously up the rugged path where one bad slip can mean'disaster. • . One Problem Settled The new invasion of Germany, has begun. The first contingent of American soldiers' wives arrived the other day, dressed .in their American best and looking smart as only American women can, to rejoin their husbands. A few. more boatloads of pretty American wives, similarly dressed, and we'll bet that the problem of the be- triiiling Germ'an fratileins will be practically solved.

Dinah calmly informed us timt frosting on a, shop-fly pie is us ou'.of-place as nylons at a bobbysoxer convention.

"I3on'i spoil ii," we siigestcd. 'Wait until your husband gels home. I'm sure he'd like to sec how pretty it is." . "Poppycock," said Dinah, cut- 'JB a slice big enough to satisfy ''I the knights id King Arthur's Hound Table. "Taste, not looks, counts in cooking 'ivy it." DKMVKRS THE GOODS We did. It tasted wonderful, Then hn went back into the kitchen iici came out again, toting a deep lass dish. "Look," she said, "apple pan dowdy," We dug into the apple pan dowdy. Two big bites hud been forced down our throat when Dinah had lo answer the telephone. When she returned, the apple pan dowdy v.'as gone. Where, she probably knows by now. You'd be surprised how much «pplt pan dowdy fj(s into a loving cup she won at a Vaiidcrhilt University -(lance. We have a hany recollection or eating some or Dinah's corn bread, too. There were no lovh:g cups available. We don't know where the divinity fudge came from, but when we got home we discovered some of'it sticking to our tie. Tlie song says. "Shop-Ily pie and apple pan dowdy makes ycur eyes light up and your stomach say 'Howdy'." They made our eyes light up. nil right. But our stomach? It won't say "Howdy." It won't even speak to us.

"' Hf didn't co much as BY PKTKH KDSON NKA Wushinglon Cnrrespontlent WASHINGTON, May 7. (NBA) — Next to wheat and bvead grains, tlie most serious food shortage throughout the world is lii what United Nations Relief Director Florello La- Oiuirdln calls "gravy." Technically speak og. ', e lormer mayor mjaus edible lats and oils. Like bread, these gravies are calories, iiml calories mean life. To the average American housewife, these life-giving fats and oils are principally butter, cream, margarine, lard, and vegetable shortening. The U. S. has always been one of the biggest fat-consuming countries n the wfrld. Before the L'oi]su:H[Hion of edible fpt; ind oils averaged 50 ix>unds per person per year. During aiid sliicir r he wtir, it has been down to 40 pounds, ruul It may be that or less for another year or more. In some countries, supplies are down to practically zero, and the people are literally starved for gravy. There are a few tilings, but. not many, that the housewife can do to conserve supplies of fats and oils. Cut out deep fat and fried foods, nntl stuff that takes shortening. Cut down on oily salad dressings. Use meat drippings to flavor vegetables. Render all meat fals apd carry them to the butcher's f.s religiously as in wartime. OTHKKS EAT OILS AMERICANS USE FOB. TAINTS. SOAP Even thc salvaged fats which go into soaps would be luxuries to inost o[ the people In war-torn countries, who don't have enough soap. To the fnt-hungray people or Europe and Asia, the fats and oils that would count would be such tilings ns linseed and flaxseed oils, which in tlie United States normally go into paints. They're con- iderccl edible in many parts of the world. Cottonseed, corn, peanut, and soybean oils, often going into livestock (ceils in this country, would be welcomed as human food elsewhere. Olive, palm, coconut, uiul copra oils, which go principally into soaps in the United States, would also find uses abroad in foodstuffs or for cooking. The same is true the invitation was sent were till lJnito<| Kingdom, cnunda, Belgium, the NcthiTlniKls, Denmark, Argentina, and Brazil. These countries, with France, Norway, and UNRRA. aje represented on the Pats a Combined Foo<l Board, which in tlie near future must try to reach agreement on world allocations so as to even out the supplies.
