PAGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)" COURIER NEWS 'THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1017, 10-Year Moratorium on Babies Proposed by Margaret Sanger By EARL BAKBKK (CaMcd Fress Staff Correspondent) IjONDON, July 3. (UP) — Mar" faret Sanger; prominent 'American advocate of planned parenthood, proposed yesterday that the '.United Nations sponsor a 10-ycnr '~ moratorium on babies In Hie world's hungary countries. It would be much better for women who already have children to be able to feed them adequately than to bring them into a world ? of "living death," she said: Miss Sanger, a native of Corning, , N. Y., came to' England this week to organize an international conference on population and family problems next year., "The United Nations should call off the dogs and not encourage ' people to have children," she said "It's a "fallacy to strive for a population goal beyond the earth's capacity. You can call it, birth con- control, "contraception, or spacing It's all the same... .there are thousands of mothers in the world who are starving, yet they continue to have children." 'Miss Sanger said such a moratorium would be a job for the mcdica authorities ami -the United Nations "The united Nations lias a vcrj large department which Is interest ed 111 public and world health,' she said I She said the Catholic Church was "the greatest • single obstacle", Jo such a proposal because of Its diametric opposition to birth control. "If we went 10 years without children we would have few^v with malnutrition and move with a semblance of adjustment,"-Mlss San- er added. "You don't wnnl to be wamped with babies while this un- ertalnly regarding the future with 10 homes and certain inalnutrl- ton exists." I would like to know what mo- hcrs in England think of my ilan," she said. "I am prepared for ittacks on it."

All persons Interested in the settlements of any of the above cs- tat'js are warned to file exceptions thereto, if any have they on or before the sixtieth day following xxxv T ATE in September of that year 1. .drove-up. to Wcslport, Conn., to visit nji old school friend. I had a delightful week in that] unique and charming town. On my ! way home my hostess arranged for me to stop over in Danbury to see the fair nnd spent! the night there, offering to go with me and come home with other friends. We had a marvelous time at the fair,'taking in the dog show, bet-. - ting on the trotting races, inspecting the cattle, the pumpkins and dahlias, the pickles and jellies and '. embroideries, and standing for al: rnost two hours to watch enormous oxen pull incredible loads. By '= V, that time '-I; was ready to call it a , 'i -day, but my indefatigable friptids - . pointed out that we hadn't stcn .- - the midway; we couldn't leave J__ ,, until we had done the midway. ': So'with smarting feet and aching back I reluctantly followed? tlie others. 'It was now nearly twilight. In the strong autumn sun the midway had appeared garish nnd predatory and cheap. Now, in the [ lengthening shadows, lighled here ' and there were strings of colorec bulbs and occasional flaming torches before darkened booths, i became suddenly gay and mysterious and medieval. The faded blue and green and purple and.ocher canvases that hung before the booths looked ancient enough to have been • painted in Shakespeare's day for a fair in Slrat- ford-on-Avon. The selfsame hawk ers might have called their ware: when the young, good Queen Bcs went incognito ito the'fair, as I'm certain she did; the same flautis might hove piped on his flute, th same fat lady in the ruffled pinl dress and frizzled hair might hav smiled the same fatuous smile an the same wild man from Borne .rattled his chains. T HALTED before n Inrfjo booth, brought suddenly to oniih by n familiar voice. On a raised pint- form not four feel from: me a nndsomc and courtly gentleman i a much-urniciccl frock coal and 10-ga'lon hat wns whipping up uslomers for his show, the Somc- iing-or-olhcr Follies. "Lndic-c-e-s and gcn-llc-inen, ome a little closer," he both ought and commanded in his nctuous, sonorous voice. "The how is about to begin. Only 10 cnts, one dime, to see the 12 bciui- iful houris that were; smuggled .raight out of the sultan's ha-recm i a dar-ing feat that baffles the naginatioii.

Only 10 cents— he lenth part of n dollar) Stoj: 'ight up, la-dies and gcn-tle-meu. Only^onc thin silver dime. . T ran after my friends ntid told icm goodby. 1 said I must yet settled before it wns dark. Then : went back to the barker mul jack to the Somcthini!-or-olhei lies, paid my dime, ami wcnl For tiio barker was none olhei .han Mr. Tollivcr, father of l r lorn and Annabcllc. And one ot Hit spangled houris who stood as hai jcfore the (lap of the tent, shaking :icr tambourine and wiggling ; suggestive hip, looked like Airo Tollivcr. Her hair was dyed, he: face veiled, her eyelashes heavily blackened, bul all the same I \va almost certain that she was ihi missing Amy T o 11 i v c r—Amj Forbes, 1 should soy—mother o the Forbes twins. T handed up my tlimc withou lifting my face. 1 pulled my h;i well down and my collar u around my neck and sat in th back row. It was a (Kill show, little singing, a little dancing, an a great rolling of eyes to a succcj. sion of la-la-la's. The music furnished by PA; 1 . Tollivcr, who pounded a small, raucous, feeble piano relentlessly. The girls wei'G only girls by courtesy, for most ot them looked to be 40 or over. They were sluibby and frayed, battered and blighted, and none too clean. The word that describes them best is frowsy. But 1 had made no mistake. The one on Ihe end was Amy. * * * T SAT huddled in my seat unlil the sh'jw was over nnd then went out with the crowd. 'I. hod no de.sii'e to embarrass Amy by letting her know of my presence. I started b"ck to my car as fast as [ could, but n small boy pulled at my sleeve. "Are you Miss Louise Sturdy?" c asked breathlessly. I told him I was Mrs. Louise urdevnnt. "Thai's i ight," he said, obviously elieved. "Miss Blllee May, she aid to tell you your old friend \my wants you should come for upper. She said it would be ready n-luilf an hour, and I was to stay vith you and bring you along." A team of wild Texas mules night have kept me from that upper, but I doubt it. The urchin innlly fluuled me to the edge of a iclcl where I found a trailer Kirkcd some distance from the ixhiijits. Amy came down the tops at my hail. She fcas well and icntly dressed in a brown tweed suit and sweater and must have iacl a bath, for she was very clean. Except for the dyed gold hair and > rather fndcd look, she was much he same as when I last saw her n Olsego. Amy kissed me and dismissed :he boy. 1 was embarrassed and lid not know what to say. Amy chatted on. entirely at her ease. She said she had seen me in the audience and recognized me immediately. Amy di'l not have to get back to the midway until 8 or half-past. The trailer was neat as a pin, and she gave me ati excellent supper. Afterward she mixed two stift highballs, and we look thetn outside :\nd sal on the steps of the trailer to drink and smoke com- tnmionablv. (To lie Concluded) .'\n54j the filing of the respective accounts, failing which they will be barred lorever from excepting to the accounts.
