M^.°yGhurchil)'s blunt speech, though unofficial, came in significant sequence to the recent and almost equally blunt statements by Senator Vander:berg and Secretary Byrnes regarding Russia. It helped, set the stage for what promises- to be a hot fight at the pending UNO meeting in New York. The former Prjme Minister's specific, plain-spoken advice might'have been even more electrifying a week or two attitude became evident.

Less significant, in retrospect, was the proposal of a close military alliance between Britain and the United States. Here,Mr.-r Churchill spoke more as an Englishman deeply concerned for the future of the empire than as a world statesman. The-community of language, interest and vrMlitical; philosophy which binds the people of the fwo nations promises to be stronger and more enduring than certain freedoms which are not actualities throughout the empire, and which he did nothing to Advance as Prime Minister. He »i;d his successors will surely find that, without a binding military agreement, the American people will be better friends of Britain us things stand now than they would be if they might be called upon to enforce sonic of Britain's imperial policies by force of arms. All this may sound as though the UNO did not exist. But at present the infant organization is unable to walk unassisted. It is dominated. great.powers. And to date of them have spent mortime in quarreling over, its custody 'ihaiV in trying to guide its first steps on a straigl^L path toward peace. America has the opportunity, and at last is showing some inclination, to step in and Iry to pacify the quarrel. Our government's policies may not be perfect, but they do seem more moral and disinterested than those of Russia and Brilain. We can surely do more for the CHiiKc: of (ic-acc by putting our strength behind those policies than by linking (.hem. with Britain's in a tug- of-wav against Russia.

But however his political views may be regarded, few can quarrel with President Truman for sending his only living predecessor in the White House to survey Europe's food needs. In World War 1 Mr. Hoover did an Excellent job as wartime food administrator and, after the armistice, carried out Die Allied relief programs in Europe. During World War II his experience was not utilized, and he labored vainly to ricrsuude the western Allies that they should at least make an attempt to get food through to the hungry people of occupied countries. Mr. Hoover's specific job will be to weigh the relief requirements of the various countries seeking aid. It may be hoped that from his experience and humanitarian instincts, there will also come some wise suggestions for speeding up our present, relief, program, which, at the moment, seems bungled and inadequate, as well as belated.

"When did you get back in town?" "Just yesterday," Nina answered. Ann smiled at her tentatively, and wondered if Nina knew how j long and close had been her' friendship with Jock. Nina was looking lovely, her free glowing with happiness. Ann had to admit that the Homiltons were an extraordinarily handsome young couple. When they had gone, after ex- langing a few more common- aces, she £clt distinct relief, reached across the table and eld her hand briefly. "Good cirl, freighter," Ann said to Colin. A sleepy voice from the hall inquired, "Don't tell me that's Alan 1 hear?" and Connie, her hair in two fetching braids over her shoulders, and wearing a really elegant negligee came into the library, blinking a little. Her voice trailed off into a little squeal, as Alan strode forward and swept her off her feet with one competent arm. "Hullo, Sis!" he said.

(NEA) — CIO leaders leel that, one of the biggest gains they made in settlement of the steel strike was tlic in- dusion of unwritten, peace-time contract qf'provlsi'Hs 'for maintenance of union membership nnd •hcckoff of union dues by the em- iloyer. This is one of the mnjor points that lias delayed settlements of the General Motors strike. Maintenance of membership was rtrsl included. \n contracts as a war irichsurcl"\>y order of the National Wnr Lnbo'r Board. It was felt trial if the unions gave up their rig^it to strike during war, they should be given additional guarantees of union, security. What the unions feared was that, the employment of thousands of war workers who vere not union members might giv,> •mployers a chance lo replace the union with non-union labor, when the war was over. Union leaders anticipated a fisht. over including maintenance of membership in postwar contracts. When Uif; Steel cave in without a struggle', they were delighted. No pholographs or movies of the hanging of the Japanese key war criminal, General Yamashita. \iill ever be shown, for Ihc War Department ordered that none lie made. The reason is that too many letters came in from U. S. citixcns protesting the publication of pictures of the first German war criminal executions, photographs of the shooting of Irma Geiss.

ALL IN SEVEN' YEAICS Seven years ago John Reed, n Hollywood-born boy, was a S32-a- weck prop pusher at Columbia studio. He didn't know ;i thlnn about photography. Then he was transferred to the still portrait gallery, moving props around for the studio's chief portrait photographer. He began to like photography. There was money in it on the side. "I had n little racket," lie explains. "I got. thp studio's negatives before they were mailed to Nesv York. I took them home anri made prints of them for th e studio's stars. I made money ami the •stars got 11 lot of photograph cheap to mail out (o fans." Then he borrowed some money and opened a theatrical studio, photographing everyone from Gene Ticrncy to a dog which landed on the cover of a national nrngnsyne. One night his little gril, fiiur- year-c<il Susan, was looking at some home movies. He watched the expressions on her face, then turned to his wife and said, "Let's make this commercial."
