Postmaster Reese Wilkinson reminded post office patrons Wednesday that effective Jan. 1, the rate oa postal cards shall be two cents each with an additional charge of 10 per cent of the value on purchases of 50 or more cards. This rate and the additional charge were fixed by an act of congress, public law 235, approved Oct. 30,1951, and the post office department has no authority to make any .exception thereto. New Parcel Post Limits Set Simultaneously, Wilkinson point- »d out that congress has established new weight and size limits lor parcel post, effsctive Jan. 1. Higher parcel post rates have been in effect since Oct. 1. Public law 199, enacted by.con- gress, has reduced the limits of size and weight for fourth-class (parcel post) mail. The limitations apply only to parcels mailed at an office ot the first class when addressed to another office of the first class. Parcel post clerks may be consulted for certain exceptions provided for in the law. This, too, being an act of congress, the post office department cannot by administrative action set aside any of the provisions of the law. possession of the Uuited Siaies. including the Canal Zone and Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, or mailed at any Army or Fleet post office or in any Territory or possession of the United States, iu- cludiug the Canal Zone and Trust Territory ot the Pacific Islands, for delivery in the Lulled States, including the District of Columbia, or any Army or Fleet post office at the tiiae of uiad'.iug, 1 cen'.s; ; when requested subs-e^ueut to the | time ot mailing. 15 cvnu: wtea re- !

This of course, surprises no one because all three were expected to be candidates: Senator Taft of Ohio, who announced Oct. 16, getting a j u m p on the others; Governor Warren o! California, who announced Nov. 14; and Harold E. Stassen, president of the University of Pennsylvania and former governor of Minnesota, who announced yesterday. The field is by no means complete, since others still, can get in, particularly General Eisenhower who, however, may lose a little yardage every week he delays. But the Taft-Warren-Stassen campaign hats are not strictly new. All three tried for the nomination before which would indicate the White House is an attractive residence. If they lose out this time--to Eisenhower, perhaps, or some dark horse who feels his oats at the republican convention next summer --it probably will be the last race for all three. They're getting older, and besides, in the eyes of the machine politicians who have to ring the precinct doorbells, the wear and tear of supporting also-rans is hard on the. nervous system.

The Omaha area, where installations include O f f u t t Air Force base and the Nebraska ordnance plant, shared in $5.380,000 worth of award. The Duluth air force base figured in $4.900.000 worth, followed by Wold-Chamberlain air force base, Minneapolis, w i t h $1,300,000.

San Francisco, Dec. 29--UPI--An angry director ot public health Is asking this city's legal department to determine how far the health department can go in saving a lite without being sued. Dr. J. C.

And, it's t h i s conccnttatlon of neutrons--called the "5 neutron flux'' by the slide-rule loys--that makes Canada's reactor something super-special. Hecause of it, Canada can make Plutonium f n s t e r from a given amount of u r a n i u m Inel limn can any olher k n o w n country.

Tito Earmarks Big Sum for Defense Use Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Dec. 31.-Wl--Premier Marshall Tito's government has recommended that S4 per cent of Yugoslavia's national income for 1952 be earmarkeil for military expenses and defense industries, The total budget, submitted to parliament yesterday, comos to 252,150,600.000 dinars with 2111,000,600,000 dinars set aside for defense expenditures. Defense accounted for only 16.0 per cent ot the 1H51 budget. However, introduction of a new system in Yugoslavia where many federal items have been taken over by the member republics, may account for Ihe increase in Ihe percentage taken up by m i l i t a r y expenditures.

Kentucky Fat Man, Weight 60Muried Pikeville, Ky., Dec. 29--im--Virgil Tackett, the Pike county "fat man," went to his final resting place of a gray hillside near here yesterday. The 20-year-old man, who weighed at least 600 pounds, was lowered in his home-made coffin into the grave by power winch. The winch also hart been needed to help pull the four-wheel drive truck up the hill the quarter-mile from his home. The burial followed a two and a half-hour service during which those able to crowd into the small four-room home of Tackett's parents stood. The coffin, hurriedly turned out by the willing hands of neighbors- no ordinary coffin would contain him--rested on covered saw-horses in the "front room."
