Ih the beginning these adjustments were negotiated separately with Other countries. At one time the U.S. had 28 of these agreements. It still has 10 today. BUT IN If ft, at Geneva. Switzerland, 23 of the principal trading Countries Of the world agreed to negotiate these tariff adjustments jointly* instead of one at a time. This was the General Agreement t* Ttiriffs and Trade, known as GATT. It has now been functioning effectively tor seven years. » Thirty-four countries having over 80 per cent of trade lit,!* (flow subscribed to GATT. It covers tariff concessions on over •Q^OO items. . ' .Because of the number of these agreements, an impression has be*n given that GATT is a tremendously complicated thing. Reduced to fundamentals, GATT serve? two simple purposes: 1 Through regular meetings of th«(GATT country representatives,' i friendly forum Is pjovWe* tor reducing the obstacles .to expand" ^second, the GATT countries have drawn up a code t>f- rules for » international fair trade. This prevents, for example, the-imposition ' of Import quotas and. discrimination against the exports of any of the contracting countries. "..».••• ,GATT has been revised three times since the end of the war. The last revision was concluded at Geneva in March. Included in the amendments was a proposal to set up a permanent : Organization to carry on the work of GATT between its semiannual meetings of the 34 countries. t . i 1 In the past, whenever any new issue came up between sessions, "« complicated, time-consuming postal ballot had to be taken in *4 capitals.

THE hue and cry after the Northfield fugitives, whict) had almost died down following the discovery of their tied horses at German Lake, burst into full clamor again with the news of the theft of the two gray horses near Mankato and the subsequent, successful dash of those two grays and their riders through a picket-line ppst on the Crystal Lake Road west of the latter town, The four outlaw? remaining in the abandoned Mankato farm- housje left that refuge «pm* time during the morning of Thursday, Sept. 14. within hours after Jesse td Frank had flpd it.

Twenty-five miles in seven days and nights! Averaging but a little bjtter than tt)ree miles in each g4 boyrs, and this over a region again swarming with the hornet's nest ol official posses and rurtl pickets stirred UK by JecM'l desertion. Yet they were not once seen until that fatal morning outside Madelial Then, following Oscar Subtfo's reported sighting of the fugitive*, pones from Madelia and Jamea wurrounded the ftrat- four tour* MM t*tt alaras a shallow, breast-deep swamp pond called Hanska Lake. Below the pond, the channel proper of' the Watonwan resumed. First cry of fox was raised by the posse of Madelia's Sheriff Glh-pin. Prying along the west sifore of Lake Hanska, he suddenly saw the fugitives struggling along through the mudflats about 20 yards out from his own, the west, bank of the lake. He waved his men to take cover in the reeds, cautiously studied the four outlaws. -. ALL of them were unkempt and filthy, with heavy, rain-wet beards. Their clothes were shredded and ripped and the sheriff at once notetf, the abamce of the famous line.n dusters. The largest of the bandits, apparently their leader, was walking in front of the others, leaning heavily on a crutch-like stick. The two following the first man were nearly as large as he. One of them appeared badly wounded, for the other was supporting him bodily. Glispin now rose up out of the reeds and shouted the order to halt. He might as well have ordered the rain to cease falling. The bandits, waved on by the big man in the , Jead, ran for the shelter of a low mudbank. They got safely behind jt, and the sjlence which, ensued was more unnerving than any gunfire. Sheriff Glispin took the opportunity to re-evaluate his position. His posse was small, only flve men. The mudflats were naked, offering no cover for an approach toward the waiting outlaws. The time for the kill, the Madelia officer at once decided, was not yet. His |ow orders to his men were as quick as they were wise: "Pull back, boys. We'd better wait lor some of the others to come up." In his lerse. later explanation ol the retreat; Glispin only remarked, "They were all mighty •iMoerate-lookinsi men. thouKb ™PTP f m V~ rr T^-Tf SI T*^"W ~ W • the fourth one wasn't near as [hers/* u " Ta-^ft W* migM W * U hav» i<WM IN* it was * chore beyond th< men to be HOLLYWOOD — (UP) — The smart guy makes it a point to know'something about women's fashions, and anyone who likes to. think of himself as a he-man is' making a mistake if he doesn't realize this. u In any event, that's the feeling of Jean Louis, Hollywood fashion designer, who thinks knowledge of fashions is required stuff for all would-be Lochinvars. The guy who thinks su.cji things are strictly for the weaker lads is wrong, and he proves it when the boys who are hep to women's styles wind up with the prettier girls, Louis said. Louis' point is that a. he-man is still a he-man even if he does take an "intelligent interest" in women's styles. It's only logical, i he said, when you consider that I beautiful women love beautiful "clothes and are intrigued by men who are interested in such "civilized" things as their clothes. "This way to a woman's favor is a very ancient secret," Louis said. He found out about its an- tiquity'' when he had to do research on love and style in Egypt of 4,000 years ago. The study vas in connection with Colum- jia's "Joseph and his Brethren," he film that has. been held -tip Because Rita Hayworth cancelled out of it. "There's a lot of poetic justice —or maybe it's injustice—in this whole subject," he said. "Your so- called he-man prides himself on lis interest in women. And yet, if you'll note, his attitude of scorn for something very close :o the heart of every woman — ier clothes, of course — assures us that he will come out second jest in any contest for her favors when competing with a more clever man." ; Louis seid that a man can have brawn and still maintain self- respect if he has an interest in the clothes of his lady fair. If things dre really rough for him, he can ipproach it on a basis of using masculine items to make the in- rocjuction easier, "If he likes the design of cars or gunstock's or guided missiles— jnd c-cin notice the differences be- ;ween them — he has the hasic necessary talent," Louis continued, "lie can overcome his handicap quickly. "From that point on, he has overcome his psychological block and it's just a matter of vocabulary." n First pheasants arrived in America from China in 1881 and were released in Oregon's Willamette VaUey. Your Health By Edwin P. Jordan. M. P. Written for NEA Service Occasionally one runs on to a person who rushes to have surgery done at the slightest provocation and seems to enjoy the attention received from doctors, nurses, family and friends. More common 'are those who resist the idea of an operation except under emergency conditions—even when this is far and away 'the best treatment. An example of the latter is a correspondent who wri- tes "1 am getting a cataract on my. eft eye and wonder if there isn't anything to .cure it other than an ofterathrtj." Betoee diteuettttg <*t«»ae*« in general it should be said that there'is ttd .;* generally accepted medic*! treatment for a cataract. There are no drops or medicines which pan be put in the eyes or given by mouth or injection which -most doctors feel will prevent cataract, delay its progress or improve one already formed. This does not mean that such a preparation may not be discovered sometime but only that so 1 far there is nothing of the kind which has received general medical acceptance. Cataracts may be present at birth or in youth but certainly they are much more common in the middle and later years of life. Usually the reason for this is not clear but sometimes the development of cataracts may be associated with presence of some disease such as diabetes. The first lymptom of a cataract is likely to be blurring of the vision. Objects such as buildings, trees, or mountains will start to look hazy or as if they were in a thin cloud. This is because the lens of the eye has become clouded and like the lens of a camera it must be clear to reveal a good picture. The image recorded on the brain is like that which passes through the camera lens to the film. A^ first |he sight is only •lightly affected. The amount of clouding deoends on the change in the lens of the eye, and the blurriness or cloudiness of vision increases slowly. The most successJul treatment for cataract consists of an operation. In the past a cataract was considered unsuitable for an operation until it had become mature or 'ripe". Now, however, it is possible in many cases to operate on cataracts before they have become "ripe." Of course, this is not always so and one must rely on the advice of the eye surgeon as to whether operation at a particular time is advisable or not. The fact that it can be done sometimes has helped many people to regain their vision in a much shorter period of time. When properly treated the outlook for someone with cataracts is not bad at, all.
