TUESDAY, JUNE 7, EGA Aid Needed To Prevent War Hoffman Declares European Recovery Essential to Peace BT. LOUIS, June 1. (/Pi— Paul G. Hoffman said today the best way to stave off a third world war te to "maintain lite momentum of recovery in Europe." The man who administers the U/rshall Plan as head of the EC A QlftTered the commencement ad.- dress at Washington University here. He said America again Is facing a threat that carries with it the possibility of war. ''I refer, of course, to the power drive of the Kremlin for world tonquest," he added. Hoffman said Russia is offering the world "a philosophy of powei in its most wicked form; a way ol life that enslaves bodies, withers training." He continued: "The ambitions ol the men of Moscow go far beyond Russia. Their primary objective their one great dream, is to establish * world dictatorship by promoting satellite police state dominated by the Kremlin. Can Prevent War "If we are adequately prepared I think World War III can be prevented and I want to say here, as strongly as it lies in my power to say It, that it must be prevented." Hoffman said that the one grca area where the Kremlin's drive ha: been stopped Is in Western Europe where free nations have staged rcovery under the Marshall Plan. •Recovery was one of the compelling reasons for the lifting ot the Berlin blockade," Hoffman asserted. "But let us not be too quick to take these Russian moves at face value. The best way to assure at the Kremlin will go beyond n rision to 'live and let live" Is for the United States to maintain the momentum of recovery." THE HOBBY CORNER (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Semi-Invalid Becomes Expert As Grower of African. Violets P*OB FTfB State Oi/ Production Cut by 15 Per Cent EL DORADO, Ark.. June 7, 07*)—• Oil production In Arkansas' regulated fields is being cut 15 per cent, or about 10,000 barrels daily, under temporary order by the State Oil And Gas Commission. The commission will meet a week from today to decide what to do about the order on a permanent basis. A public hearing will be held. The reduction was effective yesterday »s an emergency measure. Commission Chairman C. O. Baily said two unnamed puchasers weren't buylnR the full allowable from producers with who they cJcr. These producers either would have to build wasteful above-ground •'•orage fielXttes or cut their output «xld let the oil be drained off by other wells. Bailey said. Arkatwas laws requires an equitable allowable among correlated wells. By Courier News SUff Writer A hundred little pots bearing between 30 and 40 recognized types of African Violets line the sun porch of Mrs. H. A. Davis' home at 1024 West Ash. Each or the plants looks like its brothers or sisters on the left and on the right to the casual visitor, but the master of the porch-sill garden can tell at a glance that one Is a Blushing Maiden beside a Sailor Boy, or an Admiral by the Redhead. Tlie collection belongs to Mrs. C. B. Wood, Jr., who recently moved her collection from Luxora, so that she could spend the summer with lier mother, Mrs. Davis. The collection started, while she was in a hospital bed at her home I.uxora. Mrs. Wood knows, too, that there are pink, led, and blue varieties of the Amazon and the Blue Girl. She can quickly identify her plants and explain that leaves differ as do the thickness of the stems, the color and size of the bloom, and the texture of the plane. A magazine article about the flower aroused her interest and she orciercd three of four of the tiny plains. Her Negro rnuid. Ophelia, selected the soil, brought in the plants and the flower pots, and after Mrs. Wood carefully put the soil into the pots and deposited the plants in their proper places and the collection was well underway. That was about three years ago. and the varieties are increasing constantly, and Mrs. Wood is fast passing the stage of an amateur in care of the African Violet. Wide Variety of Colors Whoever said 'roses are red, and vioelts are blue' made at least one glaring error cause the African Violets In Mrs. Wood's collection range from a deep purple to white, with hues of white, pink, and blue blended throughout the collection. Her plants are a congenial crowd, too. One neighbor recently senl three plants to Mrs. wood to spend the summer,-and Mrs. Wood's collection to the violets must be like a summer vacation at Atlantic Cits to American vacationers... .a veritable paradise. Mrs. Wood explained that her knowledge of African Violet care has been gleaned the hard way., trial and error, and that she finally discovered that more plants were killed by over watering than bj vjnderwaterlng, and that they do nol need direct sunlight, and that there are lots of tricks to her hobby-trade to improve her plants. A glance at her literature i Helen Van Pelt Wilson's book on The African Violet, a flowers magazine etc.) makes one believe that con slant reading took the guesswork out of her trial and error procedures. • Has Other Hobbin, Too Mrs. Wood admittedly likes "getting her hands dirty", and she spends about four hours each dav' or a gallbladder —Courier News Photo SHE KNOWS HER V1OI-KTS—Mis.

THI WOMEN * Happy Housewife Believes In Importance of Her Task Important differ-j she had done something besides the discontented | home-making. She doesn't have to try to Justify her existence, either, by getting her fingers in a lot of pies so that she can talk importantly about all her oulside activities. She knows that in making n happy home for her family she Is doing a really big and Important job. Tliafs justification enough for her. She Is a happy home-milker, not because she has a natural liking for housework, but because slie regards housework as a necessary part of home-making. And she regards There te one ence between housewife and the happy homemaker. The discontented housewife thinks she knows what Ihe difference is. She'll tell you It is that she hates housework and the happier homemaker enjoys It. But actually most women dislike the grubby side of housework, even the happiest housewives, The difference between the discontented housewife and the happy one Is that the happy housewife Is convinced her Job L? Important. The unhappy housewife thinks It doesn't amount to anything—that It's a job anybody could do. So, because she thinks her job important, the happy housewife doesn't brood over the part of housework that is pure drudgery. She fnids ways to do the drudgery as quickly and easily as possible. And she gets satisfaction out of selling It out of the way in a hurry, so that she will have lime for the more rewarding aspects of her job—lime to enjoy her children, to work out the schemes she has for milking her home more attractive, for entertaining friends, or for companionship with her husband at the day's end. Existence Justifies Itself Also, because she thinks her own Job Is important, she doesn't fall into the habit of envying women with more glamorous-sounding careers. Nor does she make herself unhappy by thinking about how successful she might have been if Gunman Surrenders after Listening To Broadcast Pleadings of His Wife home-making Important career. a woman's most £1 Dorado Youth, 5, Butters Rare Disease UTTLE ROCK, June 7.
