Prank Howley said Saturday Hie Russians have admitted tending "kidnapers" into the American sector of Berlin. In a blistering letter lo Soviet Commander Alexander Kotikov, Howley said he "appreciated the frankness" of the admission but added: "I assure you that I will not tolerate kidnaping in the U. S. sectoi o( Berlin. I will not countenance your sending police or other agents Into the U. S. sector for the purpose of arresting Germans or any other nationals under our jurisdiction." Howley rejected Kotlkov's dcnianc for return of nine Eastern Berlin persons who tried to abduct a Western Berliner and were caught.

The ancient Greeks had the legend of Narcissus, the beautllnl boy who .saw Ills reflection in a pool ml became enamored of it. He lined away and the Rods In pity nnied him into a lovely flower, a lower that through all these centuries still likes lo look at Itself In the water. Today the average man, yawil- g at hi.s unshaven face on arising, sees In (lie bathroom mirror something that looks more like a thorn bush than n flo\vei\ Oil, but le love.s i( Just the sumo. Yes, he love.s what he sres itl tile glass though he makes a wry face ?.t il. For he knows thai by a morning miracle IIP mid the mirror can play their daily game of Jekyll-nnd- Hyilo. He knows that in a few magical moments he will not longer see a face that looks like a shredded football. He will see a freshly shaven and .shining countenance .smiling tootliily al him—n countenance luminous with sincerity and character. All men see this face when they are alone with a mirror. And most every woman, no mutter how homely, sees therein another face— a face of desperate, ruinous bcauly a beauty that has escaped the attention of her friends. Offer Endlrss Possibilities That Is the nice tiling abmil mirrors. They arc such subtle critics. You can see ill them anything you .sec in yourself. And that makes the possibilities endless. If anyone invented a mirror thai said. 'Oh, yeah?"—Well, nobody would buy It. Look at the trouble caused by the famous mirror on the wnll that answered the question: "Who's the faires) one of nil?" Give mirrors voices, and the world would RO down in chaos. For the mirror is tile "yes man" that every human being needs. Dogs don't feel that way. Most dogs either bark at mirrors or ignore them. Who wants lo be re- ninded lie walks on four legs? And tlie average dog is too honc.st \vllh limself lo look at his reflection ind nurse: "The way that car falls sn't it like Clark Gable?" Women are more honest than men alxnit mirrors. They don't mine studying ^homselves En a mirror i Public. A man does it furtively. ITc •loesn't want anyone to -suspec low much he really admires himself. At the office if you walk int ;he men's room and surprise a fel low worker grimacing at himself li the mliTor. he .slurts lingering hi necktie or grabbing for Ills comb And he never likes you us well aft erward. Mirrors Offer Sllciil Klatlory But liis guilty feeling is pure 24-caral liy]X>cri.sy. Every man secretly knows he Is the brsl thills, ever r born Into an unworthy universe. Who'.s kidding whom? Tin; only regret I have when someone catches me ogling a mirror is that he doesn't burst into spontaneous, applause. That would n\ least show he had as much judgment us the mirror. In our time of mndcrn heartbreak, when people dwell in great crowds but live so utterly nlone, the mirror does most to keep peonl, healthy. It Is cheaper than the psychiatrist's couch, and no spoken word can soothe us like Its silent flattery. It keeps us from being altogether lonely. That is why they put mirrors in bars. A man, however beaten, can plunk his foot on the mil and look beyond the rows of bottles into the cyc.s ol I he one he knows best, who has liked hiir. mosl and longest—himself. And us he looks he knows that he will always hnve one admirer left, kindly nnd forgiving of Ills faults, in n world of woe and few friends. That is why It is bad luck to break a mirror. You destroy an iningc ol the finest one you ever knew. Goes on Trial •or Slaying former Wife LITTLK nOOK. May 53. (/Pi— lol>crl li.
