PAGE TON BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COUR1KR NEWS HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN Yankees Applaud British Move to Give Wives Fair Share of Husband's Pay NEW YORK W—Many American married .men are Inking a gtcal secret Interest In the fate of proposed law being debalcd in Britain's parliament Tlie lau' would give British wives a legal right to a fair share of their husband's income. You understand, old bran, thing's are done differently in America and Britain. Here Ihe average \vife can gel everything In her husband's pocket by force of firms, language or tears. But over there the Englishman holds to tile old-fashioned Mea he is slill Ihe ting of Ihe c-oltagc. What's his is his. And whnl is his wife's? Well whatever he de- cities lo give her. Naturally. Ihe Englishman wants to do (lie sporting Ihlng by her— fair play ami all that, y'know. But what with the pub prices being what they are, and say n man's hntl a bad fortnight at the dart board — "well, old girl, chin up, you'll lust have lo skimp along With the shillings that are left." The master of the house gets the lord's share of the pay cheque and tho wife has to eke out her tea and crumpets as best she can on her marilal dole. Often British husbands won't even tell the old girl how much they really earn, figuring II really isn't any of her business. Dr. Edith Summersldll says this i« "stupid, because there is no more certain way of alienating a woman's affection." She Is author of Ihe proposed new law that would enable British wives to go xUo court and force thtir husbands to divvy up their (nice-home pay. British men might be amazed to lenrn lhat probably most American husbands heartily hope parliament passes the law. They would probably regard it as masculine traHorlsm on tho part of their Yankee cousins. But actually It la n alcp In BeU-protectlon, a bold new bid for domestic liberty on the Dart of the American male. Here is summary of tho views I heard expressed by a group of husbands here who discussed the proposal "The way I see It," said one mouslaclied mouse, "Is this: If Parliament gives British womcr. a break, maybe we can get Con gress to pass a law forcing our wives over here lo let us Imve a fair share of our paychecks." "What I don't .see is how Englishmen manage to keep the size of Iheir salaries secret." marveled another husband. "My wife makes me bring home my paycheck In my mouth. HomotJiiL-s I rlnn't even know myself whr.1 I'm making." "I know wimt you mean." remarked a third. "1 have to deliver my check unopened, too. The last time I hit my boss up for a raise, he said: 'Why, I've given you two in the last six months.' First I'd heard about It, When I iiskcil my wile, she (old me: didn't want it lo go to your head, Junior.' " "You guys ought to learn to put hour foot down," bragged a fourth husband. "I (ell my wife every morning she cither has lo give in a dollar or f won'l go lo work. She forks out, too." The others shook their heads at this bravery and agreed nothing so foolhardy would work with their wives. Finally a white-haired old veteran of -iO years of marital warfare said: "Boys, let's quit kidding ourselves. No matter what Parliament docs for wives hi Britain. Congress wouldn't dare do a thing for husbands here. They'd be loo afraid of their own wives. "No, in America men have lost their biiltle for the frccrtoiu of Hie paycheck. "Today our wives and the government are fighting a tug-of-war for it. All a husband can do Is sit on the sidelines and holler. 'On ,vlfe! On government!' Whoever wins — well, It won'l be us." Threat of Nation-Wide Oil Balk Looms for U.S. DWfVER Ml—The threat of a nation-vide strike hovered over the 0*1 industry today as tlie Oil Work, trj International Union (CIO) co:n- i pleted final preparations for a waJkovt, slated to begin at 12:01 a.m., Vocal time, Wednesday. A major portion of the Industry wouJd be affected by the strike, which could virtually paralyze the nation's output of gas and oil. A K-man policy committee-met at Denver headquarters of the union yesterday to lay plans faiths walkout. Following the meeting *ie union issued a statement signed by OWIU President O. A. Knight which stated in part: "Final plans for a nation-wide atrllic have been completed. It will go on unless collective bargaining Produces a satisfactory scUlemenl of the wage dispule before the dcBdline hour." Strike Thrice I'oslpmH-il The strike originally was slated for March 3, but \vns postponed three'times at government request. The union, which heads n co- ulition of 22 CIO, API, ami independent oil workers union, claims 100.000 workers will walk out if their demands for a pay raise o( X cents an hour and higher differentials for night work are not met. Most oil firms have offerert an Increase of 10 cents an hour. The present wage scale ranges from $2 to $2.10 an hour. Meanwhile, negotiations between union committees and management representatives were reported under way at many points in the country. All bargaining was on a local, pJnnt-by-plnnt unsls. We Will Negotiate "Of course we will continue to negotiate wherever possible In the hopes of reaching an agreement " said B. J. Schafcr of Denver, vice president of the OWIU group. "However," he added, "no definite progress has been made in any negotiations thus fur—with one exception. "That exception Involves union rlgbullders In the Norlh Texas area. Members of the union . ratified nil agreement with all rig- building contractors in lhat area providing for tiie full 25-cent general increase."

Wj—Mackerel c»Uh« »i on « tlie Pacific Coast a« the lowest since 1932 the California Department of Fish and Game reported. The season, which usually runs from late May until after Christmas, ended Ux»t November. There Just weren't enough mackerel, biologist* report. Since the late '30s, the supply rius not filled market demands. Department specialists believe a seasonal bag limit should be estabish- ed. Variety in Travel Mode Shown by Sergeant MT.

Massachusetts Vote Again to Test Taft, Ike' Hy 1!HI,MAN MORIX BOSTON 1*1—The Massachusetts primacy brings Gen. Dwight D. Elsenhower Into a last direct lest of strength with Sen. lioliert A. Tnft tomorrow and gives him n chance lo draw praclicnlly level 'n the race for ricpublicnn convention delcgules. Tnft holds the lead, nationally, it this point. The latest Associated Press tabulation gives the senator 2CG dele- ,'iUcs and Eisenhower 233. This figure Is bused on (he lolai number who nre pledged, instructed, or tnown to favor one of Iho two men. Tafl's organtnalion claims more than 300—n little less lhan half .he necessary 'number to win the 3OP nomination lor the nrcsl- lency. One of Eisenhower's Ihree top campaign leaders snid privately last week that they hope to win 30 of the 38 Massachusetts delegates n tomorrow's election. This, in effect, would constitute a clean sweep. 28 lo be Elected There arc 28 delegates to be elected In 14 district races. Of the 0 ill-large delegates. Tart ami Eisenhower already have Iwo each. The other six nre uncommitted. Along will] the delegate elections, Massachusetts hus a preferential vote this year, the familiar "ponu- nrity conlcst," in which people •cgister their preference directly 'or ,n presidential candidate. No,names are on the ballot. All such voles will be written in on a :>ace provided. In order to make it easy (or the voters, nicknames — "Bob" and 'Ike" — will be counted. TJic result of the preferential vote is,yiot— binding on Massachusetts--.delegates. Eisenhower's '.eutenanls/ however, attach considerable importance to it, not only "or its etlect on Ihe uncommitted delegates here but for Its psychological effect on Die remaining primaries and stale conventions. Sr.ihoard Near Solid A victory here would make the North Atlantic Seaboard virtually solid for Eisenhower. He won in New Hampshire, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and has the lion's shnre of delegates in New York and Maine. Tail took the Illinois. Nebraska ?.ml Wisconsin elections. Taft swept through Massachusetts last week in another of his energetic, hard-hitting campaigns. Two well-known political figures in the state. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. and Sen, Levcrett Sal- tonslall. carried Ihe burden of the campaign for Eisenhower. Because of Hie "popularily con- tesl" this year, plus the Intense nature of the Taft-Elsenhower struggle, interest is running high here. Some nolilica! analysts are predicting a record vole, reaching between 300,000 and 400,000. This would nearly triple the 1048 figure. The Dcmocrals are electing 12 delegates, each with a half vote.

W>— A weak "yes" from critically Injured Grace Marie Olliff and arrest of three relatives resulted in the pretty 20- year-otd divorcee's getting a blood (ramfusion. Officers jailed her two Brooklyn. N.Y.. brothers and her father from nearby Midland, Tex., on charges of disturbing the peace. Members of Jehovah's Witnesses, they had objected for days to the transfusion because "it would be a violation of the scriptures of the Bible to tamper with blood." William Olliff, 51, the father and Ben, 23, and John. 27, had alternated at guarding the girl's room at the Medical Center Hospital. They were 'jailed after a scuffle and loud shoullng In the hospital room yesterday as attendants ore- pared tor the first of multiple transfusions ordered by doctors. "You're trying to kill my girl," of alcoholic liquors. Application Is for permit to be issued for operation beginning on the 1st day of July 1052, and to expire on the 30th day of June 1D53. Buford Martin Applicant Subscribed and sworn to before me this 26th day of April 1952. Lonnte Boydston, Notary Public My Commission expires: 3-19-M SEAL the father shouted. Before the transfusion, doctors said the girl was near death but rational when she gained consciousness briefly yesterday. A doctor said she answered "Yes" when asked if she wanted the transfusions and "No" when asked If she were a member of Jehovah's Witnesses. Her relatives had said she was a member. Today radio appeals were to he made for blood donations for additional transfusions. Injunction Obtained The young woman's former husband, Clyde Wrlg-ht of Odessa, obtained an injunction Wednesday restraining the three men from interfering with the transfusions. The injunction was obtained in the name of the couple's 13-month-old daughter Clydene. The young- mother was Injured April 20 in a grinding, head-on automobile crash which killed four other persons. The relatives had succeeded since that time in preventing the transfusions doctors said were needed to keep her alive. The father and brothers were released on bonds of 5250 each last night In the peace disturbance charges. No action-had been taken in Ihe court Injunction order.
