True as this is, it is more important, to hnvp dreams <>t jtreiit tomorrows. Women have groat opportunities to plant In tho minds of children the dreams for their groat tomorrows. Teachers have the greatest opportunity <>f all to stir tho soil nnd make room for the dreams of youth to grow. Too often, minds are geared only to the immediate, to tho present, to tho now. This is partieiilarl.v true today when overy day lias become preo- ions cargo for loved one? separated by the war.

Railroad Suit Is Termed Important in Antitrust Tilt Have Your Eyes Examined Open a Charge Account GLASSES • That are right for your eyes and your job. CONSULT DR. R. F. ABRAMS OPTOMETRIST 1307 Nineteenth Street Phone 2-7335 WASHINGTON. Aug. 24. (UP) — Justice department officials said today that the government's antitrust suit against the Association of American Railroads and 47 of its western members would prove of great significance in the reconver- sion period. They described the suit—instituted in Lincoln, Neb., Federal District Court—us one of tho most important in the department's vigorous crusade against national and international industrial combinations. From the standpoint of the number of defendants involved and the scope of the defendant's operations, they said, the suit is one of the largest in antitrust history. Affects West The suit charged, among other things, that the defedants entered Into agreements that restricted finality and cost of railway freight and passenger service in the west. The western lines, the government charged, could not alter rates or improve .service without approval of the eastern interests. Assistant Attorney-General Wendell Berge, said when the suit was filed that western railroads now would have at least the moral support of the government if they chose to reduce freight and passenger rates and to introduce new facilities and faster schedules. Railroad executives have indicated. Berge said, that they would welcome the opportunity to operate without the fear of reprisals from their competitors. Me said independent action of common carriers would be of vital importance in the postwar period because the survival of wartime industrial developments in the west will depend to a large extent on the cost and quality, of transportation. Notwithstanding the excellence of railroad operation in the face of enormous wartime traffic, Berge said, the department will offer evidence that the roads could have been better equipped to meet their tasks of the alleged malpractices had not existed in pre-war years. The suit, expected ever since the department discovered the socalled "western agreement" early in 1943, has dramatic aspects. Officials say it will illustrate the interlocking character of various powerful industrial combinations — representing banking houses and the railroad, oil and steel industry, among others— seeking to control domestic and foreign trade. Tho American Association of Railroads, identified as an organization of the country's major roads, "operating . . . over 85 per cent of the railway mileage," was said by the rrovernment to have been founded with the aid of the banking houses of J. P. Morgan & Co , Inc., and Kuhn, Loeb & Co., which, in turn, were alleged to control "substantially all the financing operations and security Issues of the defendant railroads" as well as those , of eastern roads and large industrial enterprises.

Read this sincere, unsolicited letter from an ex-constipation sufferer: "I'irt a regular listener to radld frftv grams featuring KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN. Pleased to nay my breakfast every morn* ing for over a year has been • generou* bowl of ALL-BRAN. It give* «uch wonder, ful relief I've thrown out all pilli and other purgatives. ALL-BRAN'S a much gentler way to aid regularity. Other* with constipation like mine really should try It." Mrs. J: F. Grubb, 4405 N. Broadway. Fountain City. Knoxvllle, Tenn. This seeming magic makes plain common sense. You see, KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN can really get at a common cause of constipation—lack of dietary cellu- losic elements—because it is one of Nature's most effective sources of these elements. They help the friendly flora to fluff up and prepare colonic contents for easy elimination. KELLOGG'S ALL- BRAN is not a purgative I Doesn't sweep you out. It's a gentle-acting, "regulating" food. If you have constipation of this kind, eat KELLOGG'S ALL- BRAN, or several ALL-BRAN muffins .regularly. Drink plenty of water. See if you don't find real lasting relief. Insist on the genuine ALL-BRAN, made only br Kellogg's in Battle Creek. English Village Crash Death Toll Mounts FPvKOKT.KTON, England, Aug. 24.
