Tlie baby, n bouncing seven pound, four-ounce girl, was delivered by pharmacist mate jerry Bradbury, Cleburne, Tex., aboard' the U.S.S. Pucntc Hills. Coast gu*rd officials at Seattle reported mother and daughter— and Bradbury—were doing fine.

(UP) — Conner President Herbert Hoover's associates toclny ridlciiled nil American Communist attempt to smear him In connection with his forthcoming survey ol European foot! conditions. The American Communist press has bitterly crltlci/ed Hoover foi allegedly playing pollllcs with relle: focxl after World Wnr 1 and foi proposing Hun children behind Hitler's linos be fed in World War 1! The Daily Worker, Communist newspaper, consistently expresses fear that Hoover's proposed food survey will lead to pressure on liussian- dominntcd eastern Kuropc to swing away from Moscow. Hoover's associates here express amazement at what tliey regard as "Ihis rather shabby attempted smear." They recall Hoover food relief accomplishments In the Soviet Union during the famine' prrlod of 1922-:!:].

The Pticiilc Hills is towing the after section of the Don- bass into Seattle and has several surviving crew members aboard. The coast guard radio station at Westport, Wash., picked up the tanker's first urgent radio request for instruction at 3:15 p.m. yesterday. The tanker's skipper capt. Willard Campbell, on San Francisco and Miami, Fla., used the distress frequency to transmit the message. The message'said: "Any ship with a doctor equipped for baby delivery In vicinity of 47-42 west, course 090, speed 4 knots please indicate as labor pains are every ten minutes. Have pharmacist mate aboard." Tlie Kaida, 300 miles away, immediately changed her course and heade<| for the Puente Hills which vis making only four knots through • high waves dragging the Dobass T astern. Comdr. R.

The show's press agents are se'aVching for superlatives. EXPECT 5,000,000 From last year's golden return, the show earmarked 5280,000 for a new opening spectacle to replace the wartime "Alice in Gircusland" number. Nature of the new "spec" is still a top secret and it. would be easier lo walk into the U. S. mint with an empty suitcase than to get .nto the costume department where its properties are being designed. Ringling Brothers nnd Barnum & Bailey expect to play to nearly 5,000,000 Americans this year In its six weeks in New York's Madison Square Garden and 300 under-canvas performances. The new big top now under construction here will be 540 feel long, 240 feet wide, and w!l! scat 11,500 persons. Heavy flreproof- ert canvas is being used, and all seats are of steel.

It's no fun for the girls cither nt flr.-it. slon. Although food needs are acute, Europeans recall how the selective giving of food wns used to bludgeon progressive forces after the last war. They fear that the weapon of food — like loans — will be used against democratic Governments." Hoover's associates ridicule these suspicions. They point out that so far the adverse criticism of the Hoover mission has been limited to j American Communists nnd that Moscow has not been heard from. It is understood, also, that the Polish government has Indicated a desire lliat the Hoover mission visit that country. American Communists were challenged here on their charges Hint Hoover aided "rcnclionary regimes" in Europe after World War I by "The,Red reporter in question," it was suggested to the United Press, "might with profit rend H. H. PJsh- er's 'Fomlne In Soviet ftussin' for to Hoover In gralcful recognition ol his service. "As Hoover |K)lnted out In o r«- cenl press conference, relief from starvation Is an obligation which knows no barriers of race, creed or politics. It might be worthwhile loi the Daily Worker In explore the actual relief record after World War I under Hoover's leadership In such completely Communist regimen as (hat of Bela Kun In Hungary. That nation was saved by the efforts of Hoover's organization from starva- t'on and in spite of protests of lew liberal-minded European leaders of tho I time. "It may be significant that tho rather shabby attempt to smuir Tloover comes from the Dally Worker by way of Washington and nol from Moscow where, obviously, the authorities are thoroughly mlndfrl of Hoover's tremendous relief of- foiis in 11)22-23.

Ada I feel as though I'd just done a week's washing," a shapely redhead said as she came, perspiration-drenched, from her first two hours with Babe. Babe's complexion is more sandpaper than satin and the redhead had skinned both knees on Ihe way down. However, there are also remunerations. Bnbe gels an extra shov- clfull of salt, and the girls this season arc dragging down from S30 to $150 per week, which would not be peanuts even to Babe. From this it may be gathered the circus is in the chips again. There was a time when—staggering under (he 58,000,000 burden of the Hartford fire victims' claims plus acute internal dissension among Hingling factions — it looked as though the big top might fold. But no more. The big show came back from the road last fall with a SG.000.000 gross —even after Uncle Sam's lax col- Belgium.
