'TOURSDAY, FEBRUARY ie, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE-SEVEN French Cabinet Okays Mollet's Algerian Policies Proposals to Go Before Assembly This Afternoon PARIS un— The French Cabinet endorsed Premier Guy Mollet's policies for Algeria today and authorized him to bring his proposals before the National Assembly this afternoon. The Socialist Premier's plan was expected to hinge on his controversial proposal to set up a' one. house Algerian legislature of both Moslems and French colonists as soon' as possible. Mollet hopes this will produce Algerian leadership with which France can negotiate lor an end to the 15 months of fighting between Moslem nattef ists and French troops. s to r To quiet Algeria's French colonists who opposed suoh a proposal last week with riots and dem- osntrations, Mollet was reported planning to offer guarantees—as yet unspecified—against their being swamped. Algerian Moslems outnumber the French 8 to 1; at present each has its own legislative house with the French chamber dominant. Presentation of Mollet's proposals was expected to furnish a respite from the filibustering and brawling in the Assembly by followers of antitax leader Pierre Poujade. They have brought the chamber to a virtual standstill for the past two' weeks battling attempts to unseat 12 Poujatiist deputies whose elections have been challenged. Open Violence The matter broke into open violence yesterday when Poujadisl and leftist deputies disrupted an Assembly session with a slugging match for possession o£ the speaker's rostrum. The session was finally suspended after six deputies had suffered bloody noses : cracked heads. Mollet prepared to address the Assembly against a backdrop ol Irench violence in both Algeria anc Tunisia French sources said 88 persons had been killed in the 24 hours ending last night.

STEPS TO STARDOM- Pixyish Shirley MacLaine— singer, dancer, actress — has reached stardom the fairy-tale way She's one of those understudies who replaced the star only to become one herself. And she did it twice. The first, time she replaced star Carol Haney, who broke her ankle on. the third night of Broadway's "Pajama Game." Movie producer Hal Wallis was in the audience, and Shirley was soon signed by him to a movie contract. Then she stepped into Betty Grable's shoes (or a big TV show 'when Betty became UL TV stardom followed. past a startled householder. "Hi," yelled one. "Who ya chasing?" asked the householder. "Oh, we're not chasing anybody," came the reply "We just broke prisonl The guards are after us!" Why Cry Tomorrow? A better understanding of the problem drinker, his progress from social drinking into alcoholism, his rehabilitation and recovery is of interest to those of us who have gone through the same thing. We know there is a way to arrest this disease. He have found fellowship with one another, discussing our problems and having :'a desire to stop drinking. We have been able to form over 5,000 groups and there are thousands on top of thousands who can testify how they have been accepted as normal persons again. The medical fact that alcoholism is recognized as' a disease merits the thoughtful consideration of all citizens and the possible danger signals may be recognized just as they may be in cancer and similar medical cases. Your inquiry may someday save a life, a family, a fortune, a broken heart, a delinquent child or children, a suicide, murder or a lifetime in institutions. Alcohol is cunning, baffling and powerful. It robs one's thinking ability, one's self-respect and is no respecter of persons. We know, for we are admitted alcoholics who are living examples on the road to recovery. Some with many years of sobriety and some with a single day—lawyers, doctors, pastors, truck drivers, plumbers, electricians, salesmen, nurses, housewives . . From all walks of .life come the pathetic stories of what alcohol has done to them and many are asking, "Do I have to go all the way down ?" We are seeing many young people who, after hearing the story of others, join us and save their home, family, money, job, self- respect'and many heart-aches. Does the word,, "alcoholic," sound suspicious? It means anyone whose drinking means misery, sickness, regret, despondency, lost opportunities, unhappy family relationships, grief arid trouble. An alcoholic is any person who can't take a social drink and quit. The alcoholic is not an incorrigable gcoundral. And the public often does not recognize or understand the problem of his special "»ll«rgy." ' ' But persons who have recovered from this disease and who are living sober can explain it and will be glad to. If intertrted, write a letter to Box 873, Blytheville. All eontacU are confidential.
