U:- local news printed in this newspaper, as well as all AP news disjv«'-hos. Congratulations, Mr. Treble Victor in a close four-way race, Arthur E. Treble of .Richmond is new chairman of the Ontario county ] board of supervisors. As head of the board of supervisors, Mr. Treble will be the leader in county government. Although his powers in the county are less than that of a governor's in a state or of a mayor's in a city, his influence as chairman of the county's legislative body is probably almost as great. As chairman, Mr. Treble v;ill appoint county committees and will serve as guiding hand of county affairs. Mr. Treble has served on the county board of supervisors for 11 years, a period of service which has given him ample opportunity to become thoroughly familiar with county affairs. Such long service indicates that he has the support of his home voters. Because his election came in a caucus of both Republican and Democratic members of the board, he can be called a truly majority choice and as such should have the full support of the new board. The Messenger joins with Ontario county voters in wishing Mr. Treble a successful term of office. Love and Thrones When kings abdicate their thrones for love, is it because tley care so much for their beloveds, or so little for their crowns? The question can very well be asked of the latest dramatic dynastic resignation by young King Michael of Romania, enamored of the Princess Anne of Bourbon Parma. The royal lover reports say, had requested permission 01 Bucharest's L-ommumsuc guveiiimeuu tu marry the woman he had chosen only a month before while in London for Princess Elizabeth's wedding. The Romanian Foreign Minister, a woman, replied that the nation could not afford the expense of a royal wedding. It was as good a way as any to say that the Communists did not want a monarch at the head of the country anyway, and certainly not one who might be having an heir some day. Michael was the only remaining king within the Slav-bloc Russian-dominated eastern countries. Michael, who had been off and on that throne a couple of times already, probably was tired of its uneasy seat, and would prefer living in Switzerland, that haven for the politically disinherited. So Michael proclaimed his love, renounced his throne and Romania was named "a republic and fatherland of all who work." Was everybody happy ? Moscow liked the abdication and Michael and Anne may have a belter life without the throne than with it. " The Romanians have not had settled government for a long time, but it is doubtful whether they will be very happy with what they are getting. Trading with Russia Should we cut off trade with Russia? People who think PO should, says Senator Millard E. Tydings of Maryland, look at a few "naked facts." One is that if we refused to ship to the Soviets, they undoubtedly would refuse to ship to us. This would deprive us of chrome, manganese, platinum and other rare minerals, also diamonds and furs. Many of these products arc vital to American industry. Failure to get them from Russia would mean failure to get them at all. On the other hand the United States is not the only possible source for goods that the Russians want. They could get them from other countries, perhaps at greater cost. Essentially the Russians would not be greatly handicapped by stopping Russo-American. trade.' We would. This is worth considering.

RADIO PROGRAM (Eastern Standard Time) NEW YORK, UP--Arrangements are being made to broadcast and telecast President Truman when he delivers his annual "state of the nation" message to a joint session of Congress tomc-rrow. All networks are realigning then- schedules between 1:30 and 2:15 to carry his voice coast to coast. The television cameras are expected to go into action a little earlier to send to a five-city eastern network c-f approximately 10 stations. Russell Maloney, already established in the literary world as author and critic as well as lecturer, is becoming radio's newest name. Actually, he has sort of reversed matters' bv first getting himself Universal Training Among Tough Problems Facing House, Senate By James Marlow WASHINGTON, JP--Congress will have one tough baby on its hands if it tackles universal military training this year. This is an election year for most members of Congress and, while many people want military training for voung men, many don't. Friends of the idea call it universal military training (UMT). Universal, in this case, is another word for compulsory- If Congress should pass it, youths 18 to 20 would be drafted for mili- tarv training for at least six months, about 900,000 of them a year. There's a bill, really a plan, for go into details, but here is some of the long history. It goes way back, back to 1919 when the American Legion after World War I backed a UMT program. In almost every Congress since then there has been at least one bill to make UMT law. The bill never got far enougli to reach the floor of the House or Senate. Then World War II came along. Almost from scratch we had to build up an armed force c-f 5,000,000 men. Should we be that unprepared for another war? A lot of people thought no. including top military men who clared party, Attloe. while "the Communist overthrowing an political democracy and rejected the whole spiritual heritage of western Europe." The prime minister took a disapproving glance at American capitalism "with the characteristic extreme i n e q u a l i t y of wealth i n ' i t s citi/.ens," But asserted that "the United Slates of America stands for individual liberty in the political sphere ;uicl for the maintenance of h u m a n rights." Attlee said the British Labor p a r l y is following u middle course. It is important to note that Prime Minister Attlee's slashing . , .. .. / ~ ; . . .,,:..., ":!!'v.vI'd -; campaign inaugurated a couple of weeks ago by Morgan Phillips, general secretary of the labor (Socialist) party, to oust Communists from controlling positions which they hold in some British trade unions.

They came out for it in 1945 and since then brigades of people have favored UMT. Since 1945 our relations with Russia "nave gone down hill. That has thrown more wood on the UMT fire. In December, 1946, President Truman appointed a commission of civilians to tell him whether our youths need some form of compulsc-ry training. This commission worked five months, heard more than 200 witnesses talk for and against UMT, and turned in a 450-page report urging UMT right now. Spurred on by this report, the house armed services committee in June started a month-long hearing, listened to 28 witnesses, and okayed a bill for UMT. The bill went up to the house Ten Years ARO Today January, 6. l!3« An informal program of musk- with a general talk by Principal Edward H.

Schoonmaker of Seneca Castle who with the beginning of the new year has retired as postmaster in that village. Mr. Schoonmaker has given more than fifty years of faithful service in this position. Since 1914 he has been postmaster; previous to that since 1893 he served as assistant to his father, who was postmaster. We venture to say this record cannot be duplicated many times anywhere in the United States. Postoffice positions do not usually last for any such length of time and in former years were liable to shift rapidly with changing administrations.

A tureen supper will be served ing the truth." "Maybe," Pam doubted, "but she didn't tell us that she was Mrs. Marel yet she wore a wedding band." "She didn't tell us she was Miss either," Brent protested, "We walked into that one ourselves. Pam sank her fingers into Zarathustra's thick orange ruff and smiled at Brent almost regretfully. "Perhaps there isn't any mystery after all. Perhaps we're going to live a perfectly calm healthy life for the nex nine months and at the end of it you'll have turned out a best seller." "Not at the rate I'm going,--I haven't even taken the cover of! the typewriter." "Then this is your opportunity, I'm going into town for more groceries--you'll have all morning to work in." She surveyed the collage ap- I provingly. "It is attractive and comfortable, isn't it, darling?" road, pressing vigorously on the jeep's horn at intersections and meeting no one. When she drew up before Mr. Crabtree's store her slicker was wet with accumulated mist. As she entered she threw back her hood and knew at once that if she had hoped for anonymity, exposing her head had been a mistake. The store was crowded and all eyes immediately swiveled to Pam's fiery red hair. Evidently the tongues of Mr. Crabtree and Constable Binny had been busily engaged. One sentence was mirrored on all the faces "Hmmm, so that's the Clearview caretaker's wife!" She met their appraisal .vith amused tolerance After all, their lives must be pretty drab--if it gave them pleasure to examine her inch by inch, let them. In twenty years she might resent it but now she could stand the scrutiny. She asked for chops and settled for a stewing hen.

Want Ads Pay Big Dividends The addition of jars of wild flowers, cigarette boxes, framed photographs and scattered magazines had been the only touch needed to make the knotty-nine living room completely homelike. Brent nodded. "Almost too much so. According to the best tradition the struggling author should work in a bare room with little view." He peered out the window, "Isn't much now, as a matter .of fact. Better be careful driving, Pam." "I'll keep the headlights on," she promised. '·pHE Maine coast was enveloped 1 in one of its late summer mists. It was not thick enough to be con- lidered lof yet it clung to the Crabtree explained, was hard come by in Cove Point and loo danged high-priced when he did get it. Mrs. Carter, he suggested, iiad better learn to like fish, plenty of variety in that line. Feeling thc need of feminine company Pam asked if Miss Nor- brooke was at the school house and was disappointed to learn that the young teacher had gone to Machins for three days. She walked the length of the dock, peered into the gray waters slapping against the pilings with each rolling swell and turned back to town. She bought a newspaper in the little drugstore and was cheered to find in their post box pigeon hole, the latest story from a detective book club. Now she could read while Brent worked. What had been a cool mist turned to fog and swirled in from the ocean, creeping across the road in tenuous cottony streamers. Pam throttled the jeep to a crawling ten miles per hour and peered into the vaporous substance ahaad. Occasionally she would strike a clear pocket where she _ could see the wet dark ribbon of roaa 'A";nchng before her, then, ac the white bank of fog enveloped her again on all sides, she felt cut off from the rest of the world and and in a private sphere of her own. It was an eerie claustrophobic sensation that made her shiver slightly and increase the pressure on the accelerator. It was just before she emerged into one of these pockets that she first heard the sound. The sticky ripping sound of tires tearing over a wet surface at too fast a speed. As it grew louder and closer it was accompanied by the muffled roar of a powerful motor. Instinctively Pam swerved the jeep over as far as she dared. She had just passed a turnout so there was no hope o' coming upon another one, yet the road was far too narrow for two cars. Headlights cut through the fog bank ... in a minute the car would be upon her! With a gasp of desperation Pam wrenched the wheel in a vicious arc and sent Jezebel into the ditrh and half way up a sedge-covered dune! The car tore past her with a throbbing swish and a scream of the horn. She had a brief glimpse of a long gleaming black metallic body and piercing headlights then the car was swallowed up by the fog as speedily as it had penetrated it. Pam slumped behind the wheel unable to control the trembling that had taken possession of her. A sob caught at her throat ( ''The fool!" she said softly. "The utter fool!" ; A pebble hit the front fender with a clinck and bounced cff. It was followed by the crunch of damp sand and fisherman s boots descending the steep-side dune. "Looks like you'll be needing some help," a deep voice said. (To be eon tinned t t It will piiy you to shop our store Wednesday morning and net your fair share of tiicso cxira special values.
