Defends Program Speaking from the east wing of the White House late yesterday on * radio program observing "Democratic Women's Day," the President said his housing, health, education and .other welfare programs are founded on the constitutional principle that the power of the government should be used to promote the genera] welfare. Tile Democratic Parly intends to carry out this constitutional responsibility, he said, in spite or those who say there is "something •lien or dangerous in the Idea of » government that works for the welfare of al 1 our citizens." Mr. Truman said his program I; "not a blueprint imposed from or high by a little group of theorists .Neither Is It a set of platitudes concocted by a group of corporation lawyers In a smoke-filled room.

WE, THE WOMEN By Kulh Milieu, Stah U'rllet If You Can't Help Being Fat, Relax — Have a Good Time I con't help hut admire Mrs. P. Mrs. F.—If you \vcre going to describe her— would have to be summed up as a fat or very large woman. But she's different from most overweight women. She's unashamedly fat. You never hear Mis. T. SH.viiig coyly "I really shouldn't" when slT« is offered a luscious-looking piece of pie. She takes it without apology, eals It with unabashed enjoyment, and makes no ineiilioii of what it Is going lo do to her waistline. I've never heard Mrs. P. conver- sationally loy wilh the idea of reducing. She obviously knows she isn't going to do anything about her weight, so she doesn't bore her friends with the subject. She doesn't cm-y favor with the women who tvalch their diets by saying wistfully: "If i just had your figure." Slie'ri rather be fat than starve—and site must figure {he has a perfect right to her choice DON'T BUOO1) ABOUT IT She doesn't try lo hide in "slenderizing blacks" either. She wears what she likes. And If you wonder why a woma" who weighs as much as she doti-s chooses some of the clolhers she buys, gr ahead and wonder. Bhe wears them because she likes them. Not being dissatisfied wilh herself because of her weight or apologetic about it, Mrs. F. Is free to enjoy life and people and have a good time. She does, the way mosl fat, men, but few fat women do For Ihe woman who knows In her heart she Is never going to reduce enough (o make any difference in her figure, I recommend Mrs. F.'s attitude of being unashamedly fat. Why should an overweight' woman live in constant apology to other women? If Ihey want to starve themselves that's their business, If she doesn' want lo, lhat's hers.
