PAGB TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEW! TUESDAY, June 24, 1947 China May Take Anti-Soviet Stand Vic« President Sun-Fo Lists Three Ways to Counter 'Red Menace' Frolic in Flood MANKINO, June 24. (UP)—Diplomatic quarters speculated today that China may be oii the verge of adopting a new strong line lo- wirt Russia. The speculation- was based on the sharp slatenient of vice-president Sun-Fo, son of the late Dr. Sun Yat-Sen. in an interview with the United Press. It was the first time any Ch!n*M official' had expressed such strong sentiments regarding Russia, political quarters believed the Sun-Fa statement may have been Umed to support China's efforts to obtain new American credits. In an interview with the Chinese press, Sun-Fq said there wove three ways to counter the "red menace." He said China should protest vigorously to Russia, de- mmndine observation of the Chinese-Russian treaty. China he said, should appeal to the United States to clarify its foreign policy and strengthen economy and in oilier wavs aid China to fisht Communism.'Ann, he added. China 1 inundated.

Chinese protest By MATEEL HOWE FARNHAM ••••* xxvn T DREADED to face 'AnnabeUc; so I kept out oC her way. Thai was easy enough. It was nol so easy to avoid Flora, though I sometimes dreaded to see her too. Flora had cried for three days when her last baby proved to b» a girl, and she mode no effort to get her strength back, had lo be forced by the doctor to nurse her baby, to get out ot bed, to take up her normal life. Poor Sam went around with his chin OO the ground. I never saw him without his making me promise to (O and see Flora. • One June morning T went over to the Forbeses' with a big dish of extra special strawberries. Flora was still in bed, propped on embroidered pillows and as pretty as a pink and white peony. She thanked me mournfully, told me I was too, too kind to bother wilh a «Uly little nuisance like herself, «te a strawberry, said it was delicious, pushed aside the dish, and lifhcd. "Flora, what in the world are you sighing about?" 1 asked impatiently. - "You wouldn't understand, dear Louise," Flora told me gently. ' "Why not?" '.'.' "Because your happiness shuts you away from me. Happy people never do understand the unhappy. ;It'j not your fault, darling. Don't think ..." I said briskly that Flora was letting morbid from staying in bed so much, that J was going downtown, and that she had better go with me. Flora whimpered that she would love to go downtown with me, hul ' the nurse had asked to go to Pa Mason's funeral at 11 o'clock, and Theodora seemed to be coining down with a cold, and the baby bad a horrid rash; but it didn't matter because she never did anything she wanted lo do. I said, "Nonsense!" rather sharply and got up to go. Flora called me back from the door lo ask if 1 would mind taking Gloria Louise downtown nnd gelt inn her sonic new white shoes, Gloria Louise hadn't had an outing for weeks, and Ihcre wns no reason why the poor mile should spend her childhood in a sickroom. GLORIA LOUISE ami T hail a wonderful time. Gloria had iicr faults, but she was no snnb. Ours was a triumphal progress along Main Street, through the stores, Gloria had n smile or a little curtsy for everyone she met. She enchanted lite clerks with her pretty ways. Outside our paper rforc I remembered I needed some ink and lef| ' Gloria at the door while 1 went inside. \Vhcn I came oul she was rapturously loving a little white Spitx <1cn. 'flic clog belonged io a fall woman in rusty black, who was bent over the child. "Yes, 1 love doggies," I heard Gloria say. "I love kangaroos too. 11 She was the vroud owner oC n ncchanical kangaroo that jumped. "Kangaroos?" the woman asked. 'Surely you don't mean kanga- •oos, darling." My heart turned over. Gloria was talking to Airs. Finncran, Bob's mother, the grandmother who had refused to acknowledge ncr. Mrs. Finncran had never before seen her grandchild. Gloria left the little dog and ran lo me. Couldn't she have a doggie? . . . Mrs. Finneran Vioked at me fiercely. "Whose child is that?" she demanded. Her eyes were hungry. r that it was Mora Forbes' 1 Gloria had the time ot her life flirting with the clerk. I was hesitating between high-buttoned while slices and sandals, when the door opened nncl Mrs. Finncran walked swiftly in. She came straight to me and held out seven faded photographs of various sizes, "Look at them," she commanded. They were all of Hob—Bob as a baby; Dob in skirts, in kills, in n Lord faun Her oy suit; Hob's hcntl nnd shoulders superimposed above on a pedestal. "You see the likeness?" Mrs. Finncran went on shrilly. "No one could mistake it. The child is the living image of her hero father, and lhat dreadful woman hns kept her from me all these years. My own flesh nnd liloodl I shall never forgive her. She shall pay for it if it takes my last cent. You can tell h^r lhat for inc. Tell her 1 mean to have my rights. O'ell her- . , ."

"Goodby, goodby, goodby," Gloria called after her. .When we got to the shoe store, 'TWERE were ninny tilings I might have satd to Mrs. Finneran, bill not before Gloria. For- tfeUmB Ihe starllcd clerk, forgetting my purse, I grabbed Gloria and iled for my car. v I was well on Ihr: way home before I drew n long breath. Gloria hnd been startled, but she look it calmly, as pnrt of the morning's cnlcrtainmcnt. "What's n hero, Auntie Louise?" she finally asked. "A very brave ninn, \isually t\ soldier .who fights for his country," t answered absently. How could I tell Flora? Plorn only recently had persuaded Sam Id iidopt Gloria Louise legal I y. "Did Daddy light for his country?" Gloria asked. "No, Daddy was over age, loo oltl lo fight." "But the lady said Daddy was a hero." I was afraid of Ihc turn Gloria's calcchism was taking and managed to divert her attention by promising that Leah would have cookies when we got home lo my house. Luckily, Leah had matlc some just that morning and while she fed Gloria, I telephoned Sam and told him of my unfortunate encounter with Mrs. Finneran. "Oh Lord," Sam said. "Oh, my gracious Lord." t .
