The Nimitz Report (New York Times) · -The final report of Fleet Admiral Nimitz as Chief of Naval Operations is a well-balanced and persuasive argument for the continued maintenance by the United States of a strong naval establishment. It could be used, however, and possibly will be used by "big Navy" proponents, to attempt to secure from Congress appropriations for continued activation and even continued construction of conventional naval vessels, of which we now have more than all other countries in the world combined. This newspaper has been a consistent supporter of a strong navy, but we should not like to see previous historical unbalances renewed and an oversized navy maintained at the expense of air power or at the expense of experimental work in new defense weapons. The unification of the services in a National Defense Establishment, which we strongly supported, is one guarantee against such an unbalance but not an absolute one. We think it much more important from a defense standpoint at this time that we have the world's best air force than that we should continue to maintain a navy greater than that of all other countries. Although'the Navy says its building program for ·the next few years will be of limited scope until the lessons of the last war are assimilated, the word "limited" has different meanings for different peo- 'ple. , Certainly the program of ship construction outlined to Congress last spring hardly could be called "limited." There were under construction at that fimo in KntVi naval sVimyavfls anrl in private shil : yards, 'one battleship, two large aircraft carriers, two .escort carriers, four heavy cruisers, two light cruis ers,.five destroyers, one submarine and ten other vessels; such as PT boats, LST's, tendei^s and so on. Work was suspended on some of them at that time, but 'since has been resumed. 'The British--once rulers of the seven seas--suspended practically all naval shipbuilding at the end - o£ the war. According to a report sent to this news- piper, from. London, last, week, the British now are · spending what money they have for research and ex- pe'rimentation and on the Royal Air Force. We be. lieve that this is an example the United States might . well follow. A strong shipbuilding industry could be maintained, as Britain and other European maritime ·nations are maintaining theirs, by a program of construction of fast, modern passenger and cargo vessels, which 'are just as necessary to the defense of . this country as battleships and aircraft carriers. Dedicated Youth While most of their contemporaries, and elders, too, greeted the New Year in boisterous revelry, 10,000 young Methodists from all parts of the country met "in-Cleveland, 0., and took communion together. They jammed the city's enormous Public Auditorium, filling every scat, several hundred standing. It was probably the largest watch night service in the na. tion. Participants were delegates to the Methodist Youth Conference held during holiday week. Together the vast throng of young men and women repeated: "And here we offer and present to Thee, 0 Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies, to be a reasonable, holy and living sacrifice unto Thee, humbly beseeching Thee that we who are partakers of this holy Communion may be filled with Thy grace and heavenly benediction." Bishop Paul B. Bern, Nashville, Tenn., president of the Methodist Council of Bishops was leader, assisted by 200 Methodist clergymen. 'Before the midnight service 300 young and well trained actors had presented an elaborately staged and costumed pageant dramatizing the violent conflicts in the world, and the conquest of Christian bitptherhood. There were also several pleasant so- cil get-togethers. SHere were 10,000 young people content to greet the New Year.with prayer and dedication when the calendar change was a signal to so many people for unbridled, noisy celebration. The conclusion is inescapable that thousands of young people hunger for religion and value its gifts. Personal Health Service By William Brady, M. D. Readers desiring to correspond with Dr. Brady should address their mail to him MS follows: Dr. William Brady, Canandaigua Daily Messenger Bureau, Beverly Hills, Cal. AFTER ALL, IODIN (MY SPELLING) IS FOOD Among the reports received vide a stamped . envelope bearing your address, I'll send you the pamphlet The Iodin Ration which gives all the information you need about the important part- played by a wee. wee bit of iodine in maintaining \ite. Aside from the general information and advice in t h e pamphlet I cannot adv^e in any individual instance ^whether you should or should not take : n H i n r » o r i o r l i o o ^ o f H t l V k i n d . S from people who have taken an iodin (my spelling for food or nutritional iodine) ratidn for a year cr more arc many asserting that the iodin ration has brought down high blood pressure and kept it down. Now I must lay right here that to the best of my knowledge high blood pressure is not a specific disease or eoncuuou wnii.ii «_**« ", effectively treated without special regard for what ails the individual. No diet, rne.-licine or other remedial measure can be considered "good forr" high blood pressure, although it may be beneficial for one with high blood pressure. In other words, it is futile to employ a remedial measure for high blood pressure as it would be to deal with a rapid pulse or elevated temperature in that blind way. One with high blood pressure owes it to himself or herself to undergo e careful general examination by the physician . On the information the physician obtains through a complete physical examination intelligent and perhaps effective treatment can be applied. If you have high blood pressure don't deceive yourself that the iodin ration or any other remedy, diet or physical therapy you may "try" is adequate treatment. But the fact that your blood pressure is higher than it should be^should not deter you from tali- 1 ing an iodin ration. I repeat what J have said many times before-to thc best of my knowledge no child, youth or adult can =u f fer any harm from a suitable da'Iy ration of iodine. ,md probably the great majority of children, youths and adults in the United States and Canada get insufficient iodine in food, medicine or water, to fulfill the daily requirements of good health.

Antarctica has been proved by the Ronne expedition to be one continent, not two. Heretofore, it has been supposed that a frozen body of water might extend from the Ross Sea below New Zealand to the Weddell Sea under South America. This would divide Antarctica into two parts. Now the Ronne air surveys show that this is not the case. This makes one less.complication for school chil- drne. In listing the continents they will not have to include East and West Antarctica.

By Cameron Dockery AP Newtfeafuret P Chapter 14 AM, clad in sandals, shorts and one of Brent's cut-down shirts, headed fn- thr- bench. Behind her the cottage basked in morning sunlight; in its shadow Brent struggled with the outline of his book. While admiring him for conscientiousness, Pam commise-- rated with him for wasting the weather. This was a d?y for exploration, not for staying at home. A dry salty breeze skimmed in off the Atlantic dissipating thc last vestige of thc previous day's mist. Overhead, gulls uttered their piercing melancholy cries as they rode the air currents or swooped to snatch a stranded fish from one of many rock-bound pools. The tide was low. leaving a narrow strip of hard-packed sand that provided good walking. found herself wondering about the stray glove discovered by Zarathustra and the dust-marked footprints. Th stood a short breakwater of on boulders that jutted out f i o m the mainland. It scrmcrl to have withptood the ravages of time and weather remarkably well, for the g'.a-s in its round upper window was intact and Pam decided the view from it would be more than worth the climb. As she approached, she noticed thai the door to the tower swung listlessly. It would swing shut, the lock not quite catching, then open again as though pulled by an invisible hand. Evidently a window above was open and the current of air was effecting the door. Entering, Pam pushed it wide, bark against the whitewashed wall, but in a moment i it bar°- Srsfvit ' a n d thc brc ° 7 - c oa.r. TRY A MESSENGER WANT-AD cade of boulders, Pam strode determinedly northward, her objective an abandoned lighthouse that stood starkly three miles up the strand.. Against thc sparkling cerulean blue of the Atlantic she looked diminutive--a small white and tan figure with streaming red hair. In spite of her lack of talent, Pam had an artist's eye for form and color. Nearing the lighthouse and noting its strong simple lines and chipped paint, she mourned her inability to transfer it to paper. No wonder artists came to Cove Point, thrro was such a wealth of material to lure them. The thought reminded her of Luisa March She frowned and kicked at an overturned horseshoe crab that sent a cloud of flies spiraling then as quickly settling. Brent had been obdurate about the letter. He would not inform Mr. Spence about the so-called artist. He had written it, offered it to Pam who waved it way in a fit of provocation, then walked to the road and left it for the R.F.D. truck to pick up. For him that settled the matter, his con- ·cience was clear but Pam a r o u n d lhis t|me slammed with n solid finality.' Pnm shrugged and began climbing' thc circular iron stairs. The brrczc swept down and into her fnce. It was laden with thc odor.s of kelp and drying mortar. Her footsteps echoed with rr.c!a!:-.c hollov.-ness on thc narrow iron stairs. Though it was an empty sound it gave her no sensation or ccriness for sunlight streamed from thc tower above and outside thc constant cries of thc gull? dispelled a l l ' Innilnoss. Her head rose above the floor level of the tower room and then .she stopped r.nd clutched the stair rail for support while her brain began to swim dizzily A man was lying on the floor, motionless and oddly inert! Pam's heart began to pump wildly. Thc backs of her hands started to prickle and a faint singing rose in her cars and grew to a reverberating hum. Then a sudden gust'of stringent salty wind swept in and she shut her eyes and drew it in in great sobbing gasps. In a moment the ominous hum had subsided and her heart was back to its steady normal tempo. Still ahft stood . . . listening , . . There was no sound inside the tower except her own rhyhmical breathing and the tugging rattle of the loose door below. And then ^hr- knew t h n t s-hr wa; nlnno in the deserted lighthouse with a dead man! S HE had known he was dead from thc first glimpse of his upturned scuflcd shoes. Thc possibility that he was asleep or unconscious never occurred to her. Now she opened her eyes and climbed up into thc room to confirm something that she already knew. He was a youngish man with wide staring blue eyes that belied the tight cruel "lines around his half-open mouth. There was a dark stubble on his chin that matched his h a i r and brows and the thick curling hair that crept above the open throat of his light blue shirt. A navy pea jacket indicated that he m i g h t be a seaman as did the dark blue serge trousers. Pam forced herself to examine his face. There was no expression there. Whatever had happened, had happened too swiftly for surprise or fear to leave its mark. Stooping, she lifted his head gently, but when she saw thc coagulated pool of blood beneath it she gasped and let it slip back to the floor. She stared around thc bright, white-washed circular room. It was empty and cheerful yet earlier in the day must have witnessed an act of violence that made its walls echo. There was no weapon in sight. Thc floor was rough scarred concrete, too rough for the dead man to have slipped and injured himself. Someone else had done that! Someone who knew that usually the isolated lighthouse went for long periods without a visitor and that a corpse could lie there for months undisturbed . . . undiscovered. Someone who might even now be watching the tower and wondering what to do about the woman inside it! (To be continued i "There are few indeed who don't i*(|U;d t h e New Dealers in their sincere and earnest desire for uplift ami jiio^ress in America.

Dewey linked what's happening IK\V w i t h the 193U's by saying: "The dollar was devalued, the national debt continuously in- cieased, and production of ail kinds was discouraged.
