Lugard, wife of the cotton expert for The Netherland East Indies, who found her plans changed from going to Australia to an immediate return to New York, and then maybe a trip to liberated Holland before Australia is put back on the itinerary. Educated in Holland at the University of. Ut -retch, a major in sociology and economics, she traveled to Cairo to be married to her fiance. Her children were born there, and partially reared there, and part of her life has been divided between them In Holland, and her own residence in French equatorial Africa and the Belgium Congo, where her husband's duties took him. Last word to her froift her 9- year-old son, Tom, on the eve of her departure to the Belgium Congo. "Go quickly, mother, and come back quickly." Six years have elapsed and what the fate of this boy now 16, and of her older son, Wilhelm, now 21, is what she can only imagine. She dreads '.'. that which the Nazis may have taught her childden. Her hopes are now high that she may see her sons again soon if they were not deported into Germany as laborers, because the fighting of the Allies ia now almost at the door of her former home in Holland. The troops at Arnhem are only 20 miles from Daventer, her old home in Holland. It was back in 1938 when the entire family had a happy reunion at Christmas time. Now, one of her sisters, the wife of Dr. N. S. Blom, a director waiting to return with The Nether- Indies, is interned in Java, a prisoner of the Japanese, and her brother-in-law is in Australia, waiting to return with the Netherlands civil government as soon as Java is freed by General MacArthur. Mrs. Lugard has command of six languages, speaking excellent English, French, German, Italian, Arabic, Bungalana, (a native Africa diafeet) and her native tongue. She has learned to adjust her living requirements from sophisticated metropolitan centers and hotel life to existence in the heart LYONS ROOT BEER Olt44, IYONS.MAGNUS, INC. SAUXDERS of the African jungle where one lives surrounded entirely by African natives and with supplies imported to last It! months at a time. Her knowledge of languages canif in handy in her own domicile for she spoke French to her African cook from the French Equatorial Africa, and Bungalana to her house boy from the Belgium Congo. She was required to use a little "kitchen Arabic" while living in Cairo. "You would envy me all my servants," she said with a laugh, for now she knows the difficulties of getting laundry back in America within the normal span of hotel life. She enjoys life in America, but has not yet become accustomed to the noise that the average American endures from the clatter of dishes in a hotel to the blatantcy of a radio going full blast. Coming west, the Lugards enjoyed a trip through the southern states, where they found charming people and many surprises in American folk ways. She thinks that people the world over are much the same and that people, no matter what their nationalities with the same education and breeding have the same interests in common. For that reason, she believes that international understanding should not be too difficult. She thinks that if German women were given more equality and if Japanese women were more advanced the history of the world today might have been different. Women of The Netherlands have franchise and most of them take full advantage of educational opportunities. Residents Debate Merits of Local V-Day Celebration VETERAN OF WORLD WAR II, MOTHER OF SIX SONS IN SERVICES, APPROVE OBSERVANCE OF GERMAN DEFEAT By MARY K. JAYNES Controversial question of the day for Kern residents is whether or not there should be celebration of the day or days following the German surrender. Various organizations throughout the county have passed resolutions stating that celebration Is not in order. However, in a census of the opinions of the mini on the street, arguments pro and con were indicated. Johnny Wilson, bus driver and veteran of this war, said, "Sure, there should be a celebration. I don thing the defense plants should clos down, though." Mr. Wilson was i the navy before his discharge. "Only One Phase" "Xo!" was the Immediate reply o Lowell Falrley, .junior college stu dent. He says that he will no doub feel happy and will probably like t celebrated, but explains, "After al 1 this is only one phase of the wai There's still an awfully importan battle to be won in the Pacific." The opposite opinion is held b: Mrs. J. J. Deuel, mother of six son in the service. She sees no reaso why there should be no celebration "I think we should celebrate th winning of both battles; the one li Europe and the one in the Pacific, were Mrs. Deuel's words. She ha sons in both theaters of war. A parade in memory of the me: who have sacrificed their lives is th idea for celebration Jim Pierce o Bakersfield High School suggests. "The boys in the Pacific will no take time off from their jobs to oeh brute, so why should the workers o essential industries?" was the opii Ion expressed by Jack Haviland. ai other high school student. He feel that under no circumstances shoul the war plants close. Can't Be Stopped Calvin Conron, attorney, sees n way of preventing a celebration. 1-1 PEANUT BUTTER Don't have tired, red, harsh looking hands after a day's work in your home.

FORMULA L A N o L I N GUARANTEED PRECISION DAY SERVICE LAWSON'S JEWELERS 1507 Nineteenth Street says it will depend upon the Individuals. Mr. Conron is In favor of closing the stores, while Miss.Renee Keetch thinks this is no time to celebrate. "I don't see why there shouldn't be a celebration within reason," is the opinion of R. L. Barksdale, patrolman. However, he feels that all industries manufacturing essential materials should remain operating. Renewed Bond Buying Effort A renewed bond-buying effort when the European power surrenders is the suggestion submitted by Frances Preusser, secretary. She feels that any celebration should have a definite patriotic attitude for the winning of the western battle. "Sure, I suppose there should be a celebration," Miss Winnie Heston, telephone operator, said when questioned. She added, however, that England seems the more logical country to have a big celebration when that time comes. Mrs. W. M. Aldrlch, store clerk, believes there should be some recognition shown when our boys defeat the Reich. "After all, this is half the war," were her words. "Don't think the boys in the Pacific won't celebrate when the news comes through that Germany has surrendered," exclaimed a sailor.
