(AP)—The "Non-Virgin Club," like the use of drugs and the crime of ingenuity, is a brand new product of adolescent behavior in the United States.

Ststcr Item em bo re WASHINGTON (NBA) — A vital but littie understood feature of the proposed Japanese peace treaty is its joint sponsorship by the United States and Great Britain. There is now much better cooperation between these two nations on Far Eastern affairs. This gives the jnct j double strength and I chance for success. Eastern trade.

And the father built .a neat log cabin by the brook. He put the picture of Frank above the stone fireplace. And the long years of family 'waiting began. But Frank never cameback. No trace of him or his plane was ever found, and Frances and I rode out to the old farm the other day with Frank's older sister, Helen, and her f)us- bnnd. George Palmer, the foreign correspondent.

"I'd just ns soon have another girl, but Helen thinks it would be nice if it's a boy," said George. He didn't have to say why. Helen was very close to her young brother, and a son would help fill the hole In her life left by the death of Prank. Two horses that Helen and Frank used to ride—Comfort and her son. Lieutenant—came up to the cabin, and we fed them some ears of corn.

"I'Used to beat Frank, too, and he said I was just lucky," said Helen. That was the only mention sh« made of her brother. After all theso years, his loss is still too near for her to put Into words.

The Jast thing I saw as we shut the cabin door at twilight waj the luminous smile of Captain Frank, at home in the home he never lived to see. I don't know of any soldier who has a finer memorial.
