Friendly told the publishers meeting on the second day of their three-day convention, that a vita question-facing the American press is how to "sharpen Us vigllence' •gainst '.'insidious forces" working to "undermine our democracy." "I know that in the minds and hearts of everyone of you," he said, "is the • determination to use the all-powerful medium of honest re- .porting • and editorial reason to bring about widespread awareness of the evils ol government by directive, of the welfare state, of' sub- ildies to everyone, of Communism disguised as :Democratic Socialism, of all the Insidious threats to the principles Americans hold dear." as 1 Hildegarde, one of the leading restaurateurs of the northwest. .

"But it made, me determined to lead a normal life—to be like other girls."Jumps from Plane .When she was 17 she drove with some friends to the Tacoma air r field. "Stub" Campbeli, an oldtime daredevil who wanted a new -stunt to thrill crowds at\a forthcoming Fourth of July afr show, asked the group of spectators: "Is there any girl here daring enough to make a parachute jump?" "I will." volunteered Hilda. And Jump she did—from S,000 feet. "I-was still supposed to be wearing my cast at the time," she said. "But I wanted to prove to my six brothers I could do something they couldn't. I didn't get paid for it, but someone passed the hat and collected $21." * Made 26 Leaps . Tn the'next two years she made 26 parachute jumps in barnstorm-' ing tours with such fliers and stunt men as Campbell, "Tex" Rankin and-Jimmy DoolitUe. The most she ever earned for a jump was.$50. "My second Jump was the worst," she said. "In those days the'chute o'clock In, the • morning.

Hildegarde still is in . recurrent pain from the'after effects of her childhood ailment, but she has schooled herself never to show it. "Many people think a handicap s a detriment to them," she said. 'Mine was an asset. I made It into one. I kept telling myself that if I developed my personality and learned to be nice to everyone that I'd overcome this handicap I knew I would have all my life." And she said Her illness taught her one thing more: "I never say 'can't.' I just don't believe In it. No one can afford to let himself go—or to give way to self-pity. People who do that can never win over their handicaps." Worry of FALSE TEETH Slipping or Irritating? Don't be embarrassed by loose false teeth sLL pjilng. dropping or wobbllnj . cat. talk or laugh.

(&)— John Drozdo—a man who spends his winters trying to out-figure fish and his summers putting his ideas Into practice—says he's found the best bait of all. / ..Using .strips of red rubber from an automobile inner tube Tuesday, he caught ten brown trout^the legal limit.

For 20 minutes I dangled a few feet below the wing while the plane circled the' field. Finally' "Stub" climbed out on the wing and tore the lacing loose with his hands. That released the chute and I floated down and landed 'in a cottonwood tree. "I was too dumb to be worried then. I thought maybe that was the was supposed to happen." Strapping Snaps In 1928 the strapping on Campbell's chute snapped during a routine jump, and he fell to his death. That ended Hildegarde's career as a stunt girl, too. Her mother made her quit. "Of course, I' had no business making the jumps tmyway, as the paralysis had left me with a twisted back," she smiled. ^During-1949 in the U.S., more rob- ^ries. burglaries and auto thefts occurred In the winter than in the summer. Larcenies were lower during the first part of the year and reached their high point In the late fall and early winter.
