FOURTEEN Russian Gold Invested in Grain in U. S. WASHINGTON, Jul ylO. (UP>.Chairman John Tnber ot Appropriations Committee said yes- (erday lie had been informed that Russia's European satellite conn, tries,; using Soviet gold, linve been making heavy Jim-chases in Die Amerfcan grain market. This, tho New York Republican said, has resulted in keening grain and meat prices up. Tabor said he received the information from "excellent sources" he talked with by telephone this morning while making !i survey or the crop situation. "I have -been told," he said, "lint Soviet Russia has transferred Bold to Poland, Yugoslavia nncl Bulgnin ad that those countries have been buying grnin heavily, particularly at Chicago. This has bsen responsible for' keeping grain pi-ices up and for the resultant price jumps in meat." Taber said he was making a fur ther check on that situation. He explained he was "worried' about the crop situation in this country. Crop conditions, Tnbcr said, might necessitate new demands on the treasury. The whole foreign aid program, now under consideration by his committee, would have to be reviewed in that light, he said. BI/TTHEVJLUS <ARK.)

IV TMJTH MILLER returned to Hope House at 11:30 with the once- coveted blue in a paper box. She had forced herself to buy it. It was'all she had left ot the new lite slie.had planned. A few hours before, when she had confidently walked into the future, she had come face to face with the past. Run, she had said to herself, run; you still have n chance. Bui she had been running for years, from city to city, from job to job, putting time nnd distance bchveen herself and n screaming promise, and her route had uecn a circle. Above the chatter in Ihe lobby slic had heard one voice. In n sea of slrango laces one face was not strange. It's a scheme, she'd said, it's a destiny.* I'm lost. But she had run again, out into the night, pleading with herself to be calm. She'd thought of Mrs. Sutton,. maybe Mrs. Sulton would take her in and ask no questions. Maybe she'd listen am! advise. But , then she'd remembered that Mis. Button was leaving town, .She'd begun to cry, standing on a-corner and fuming slowly and steadily as i£ she were surrounded. The fog was thick and the passersby were dim and shapeless. She could follow me and I wouldn't know it, she wept; I wouldn't see her. My eyes— •That was when she'd remembered- the eye doctor. The only man she knew except Mr. Ben?..; And his office wasn't far awayj an office and apartment com- bincd. She'd talk to him nnd he'd loll Her what to do. He'd been, elt—friendly, ife'd been, well— interested. She'd climbed the slnirs to his office, but no one had answered her ring, She'd slipped a note under Die door, askim; him to call her at Hii|K> House. "Leave a message if I'm not there," :;hs'd written, "and toll me where I c-an rcndi you. 1 need some advice. It's important to me." She couldn't tell him how important. She couldn't write a word like deV.h. It would look hysterical. tat CHE'D left (he doctor's building and walked to Fourteenth Street, Iclliiijr herself to buy Ihc blue because hci would see lior in it. But the scheme took care oi that. Ten minutes nfler she left (he building a ckanini; woman s\yei>t the note into the hall, down the single flight of stairs, and out into Ihe gutter. ' Later- on the ' rain washed the words away. Outside the shopwintlow she had Jooked at the blue and talked to licrsclf again, '/'diked am) argued. Maybe I made a mistake, she'd said. Lots of people look alike, you're always hearing of cases. There was oven a jmuixvho looked like (he President, And she didn't act cju-Jer when she saw me, she acted Jiko she'd never seen me before. So I ronld be wrong. . . .
