USE THE TRIBUNE WANT ADS On The Serioui Bide The Parents' Consultation Senr ice has found that certain mother nd lathers seem to think it i "cute" to let their little ones join in the merriment of the cocktal hour. When tome Mommies say "Take a lip," they don't mean from t glass of milk. They're ialkin about the cocktail shaker whic his become enshrined in the lam ily hearth as a sort of househol |od.

Yet, some parent »re doing it," the Service observes idtfng: "Perhaps their judgmen is dulled momentarily by liquoi Whatever the reason, there is n those cities. '', · Because of the sturdy interna ·tlonal value "ot the American do] ;lar, the .plotters collected amazln; : profits on "paper transactions 'and then siphoned the. original I 'money back to the United States. ' The U. S, government didn't lose '·a penny, but the reds ran up bank accounts that could have been used ; to buy war materials anywhere ' in the world. Ogden's investigations reached ·hack to July of 1950, but there ' were even earlier intimations that ;'flourishing .blackmarket was operating In Manila. · On May 20, 1950, the Philippines government cracked down on the ' s a l e of money-orders and U. S. treasury checks being sold to Chi- 1 nese merchants at a 25 per cent profit. . The Federal Reserve bank in New York revealed about the same . time that many treasury checks .'mailed to the Philippines had been 1 "fraudulently raised"--s o m e to . large amounts. Most of the. checks ; were cleared thru Hong Kong. Money orders sent 'by Filipinos In Hawaii and Guam also had been ' handled illegally, it was found. Here is how the blackmarket money switch worked: Relatives and friends would send . money orders, drawn on American : .post offices and cashable In Manila, to.Filipinos there. The Manila residents would take the money orders to the post of. fice. But the gang had local money black marketeers posted to inter'_ cept the money orders. These men . paid more than the legal rate of ' Filipino pesos--two pesos. legally . exchange for ?1--to the holders. In turn the Manila black market. pors turned the money orders over to well-organized Chinese commit' nist gangs. The orders then were smuggled to Hong Kong aboard planes. Ogden said, with the aid of bribed employes. Another bribed employe at Hong Kong would retrieve them from hiding places on the plane. . In Hong Kong; the money orders were deposited in banks by Chi nese merchants. This establishes a bank account ill American dollars for the merchants, agents of red China. They then purchosed goods that could be bought only for dollars. This included scarce medicines and other products paid for with dollars deposited In Chinese hanks. Eventually the money orders nmrin the'ir way back to the post office upon which they had been drawn to he cashed. The postoffice had lost nothing, j The original holder In Manila had made a profit. And the Chinese reds had netted precious dollars which they could spend on the free market for poods they needed desperately and which wore denied them by the blockade of Red China ports.

Unrest Reported n Red Poland Vienna, Austria, Sept. 13. -- (fi -. picture uf the worst food short- ge since the war, a jolio epidemic nd widespread unrest in commit- 1st Poland was painted by west- rn sources here today. Poland's star radio commentator, tefan Martyka, was slain Sunday, 'his incident gained political em- basis thru the announcement ot lie controlled Warsaw press today liat he was the victim of "Secret 'ascist Brigands." Martyka was the man who sought o answer on radio Warsaw what e called the imperialist, warmon- ;er propaganda of the voice of merica and BBC broadcasts to Po- and.

It also recommended that revised boundaries be considered for the advisory board districts. Members said this might well mean a jump in size from the present seven-member board. The vote, taken just before noon, was unanimous. It. followed a lengthy presentation to the committee by Highway engineer Mark U. Watrous about reorganization of the administrative mechanics of the department as recommended nearly three years ago by Hal G. Sours, Columbus. O., consulting engineer hired by Lee Knouts, then governor. A three-man highway commission instead of a seven-member advisory board was recommended by the National Rssearch Council In a study several years ago. It also suggested a director of highways over the highway engineer. The long range committee took no action on the proposal to set up a director of highways but several members privately expressed opposition to it. Following Watrous' report the committee passe da resolhtion saying it recognizes the department "has accomplished a creditable job" in reorganization. The same resolution suggested a change from the advisory board to a commission. The long range committee, In the midst of a three-day meeting to hammer Its program in tUiape for the legislature, ratified an ac tion taken yesterday adding roads to the proposed state highway system. The roads are state highway HI jetween Naturita and White Watei by way of Uravan and Gateway; state highway 80 between Dove Creek and Naturita; state highway 145 between Rico and Tellurlde; state highway 71 between Bnifil and Rocky Ford; and state high way 10 between La Junta and Wai senhurg.

It's country which is worth opening up under any circumstances and we should do our part In it." Just before the noon recess C. A. Walt of Grand Junction brought up the case of the Loma-Uangely oad, long sought by western Colo- ·ado interests. "It is very important the road be constructed," Walt said. He added he would go along with he idea that it be built under the iroposed county primary road sys- .em.
