Logic Explodes Soviet Charge of 'Espionage' Peak Bible Distribution In fundamental rebuilding of war torn nations, The American Bible Society Is doing invaluable service. Last year the Society distributed abroad 504,620 Bibles, 1,813,065 Testaments, and 2,912,071 portions of the Scriptures. In the United states Its distribution reached 4,020,083 volumes. It Is only through a practical realization of the presence and power of God as the universal Father and man as His beloved son that this world Is ever going to achieve permanent peace. In helping to attain that realization, the Bible has its Indispensable place. Though the American Bible Society put into circulation last yenr over 9,000.000 copies of die Word of God, this year It plans a much larger outgiving. It alms to meet definite appeals for the Scriptures from 15 nations which It does not normally serve, besides enlarging Its usual work. For overseas, the Society has scheduled a $2,500,000 distribution program. This is In t-ddl- tlon to it* regular budget, which has climbed to $1,196,496, Its highest figure. Altogether the Society, which IB seeking 500,000 new members, has undertaken a far greater program ol help to man than It has ever before dnred In its 132 years, Never wafi there a greater need for the Bible. ^ —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. \ VUH 60TTA \ LEAW& LIVE > WTHir-LIKE We PIP ' Odd Gadgets Make Life Easier And Complicated at Same Time THI DOCTOR SAYS »T Edwin f. Jorduk M. m. for -VSA Correspondent Robert Magidoff s explanation of why he was ousted from Russia on spy charges put a logical anil rather routine ending to what, at first reading:, looked line a minor, mixed-up mystery. It was all propaganda, the writer- broadcaster concluded. Since he was Rus- lian-born and his wife was Russian, ha felt th« authorities figured that if they could brand him as a spy, they could then »ay to the people, "Well, if he's that had, yon can imagine how much worse those other'foreigners are." "No doubt the Russian people dutifully •wallowed this latest dosage, as they aaem to all other government handouts. But even with the twist of fact and fiction, the story is so preposterous tliat only a public brought up on propagandized news and hermetically sealed education would ever go for it. First- they would have to believe that the United States government was operating part of its intelligence service through the McGraw-Hill Publishing Co., and that McGraw-HilJ was not too busy an one of the country's biggest publishing houses to take on the assignment. Then they would have to believe that McGraw-Hill tent its espionage assignments uncoded through regular mail channels. Those channels are not closed in Russia to the censor's inquisitive eye. The Russians would also have to figure out why, if Mr. Magidoff sent his replies to these assignments by diplomatic pouch (allegedly charged by the correspondent's, accuser and denied by the American Embassy), the assignments themselves weren't sent by the same secret, inviolate means. It would be easy for the Russian readers to construe some-of the instructions from Mr. Magidoff's employers as orders for spying. One letter, according to the correspondent's America-bora accuser, Cecilia Nelson, asked information about Russian research in the sphere of atomic energy. Another asked about Soviet air transport. A third wanted to know about underground buildings, whe- , ther they were strategically located, | proof against poison gas and radioactive ; particles, and so on. Under the circumstances, the an; swers to those queries are of undoubted ; interest to the American military intel- • hgence officers—and we trust they have the answers. But what probably would never occur to a Russian reader is that they are also legitimate news. American correspondents did stories about the "impregnable" Maginot and Siegfried Lines before the war, but that wasn't espionage, if they write stories today about British military aviation or atomic research, that isn't spying, either. But the Russian public wouldn't understand that.

There are two ways to gain weight: l.) cut down o'.i the activity output, and 2.) Increase the food Intake. It Is usually easier to gain by increasing the intake and at the same time hold- inj; exercising down to what It was. There are several ways of in. creasing the food Intake. One of thejn is to choose foods with the highest calorie value. Starches or carbohydrates and fats supply more energy and have more effect on weight than proteins do. Maintain Balance When trying to gain weight one should include fatter meat, more butter or margarine, cream, swee's, potatoes bread and cereals. Balance must be maintained in the diet, however. It is not wise to cut By Harman W. Nlch»h (United Frets SUM Corr«|H>nd«tit) WASHINGTON, April 27. (UP) — This is tlie age, and apparently the season, for odd gadgets which make life easier and at the same t!' n fi more complicated. <B In Schenectady, N. T,, »n mven-^ tor has come up with »n electrlo eye that can "see" 1,000 feet. Right through the wind and the rain and the snow.

The stomach can be trained to hold more by gradually increasing the amount the Arkansas cotton which Is artificially watered once or twice during the growing season. Tests show that supplementary Irrigation does not adversely affect the quality of our cotton. But in the West, where the crop gets almost no rainfall, Irrigation seems to have a physiological effect, bringing Irregularities In tensile strength. Cotton shows many variations In spinning performance. Mills require different types for different textiles. A mill can afford lo pay a higher price for a desired quality wlien it knows exactly where the shipment was produced and Is thus assured that the fiber will resiwnd well to the processing. The one-variety cotton program, which the Agricultural Extension Service has been promoting since 1B3'J, U bringing fine, results in Arkansas. When one type of Improved cotton is grown in a community there is no chance of different kinds ot seed getting mixed at the gin, and there Is less chance of cross-polllnntlon in the ilelds. Mills have learntd the areas that grow fiber of special spinning characteristics, and make purchases Irora these places. The entire cotton Industry has a stake in the movement for more precise identification of baled cotton. Both producers and purchasers have a right to expect protection against the practices of which the Arkansas Cotton Trade Association complains. —ARKANSAS GAZETTE By Peter Edson NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON (NBA) — Proo- Icms piling up on the desk of Paul Hoffman at EGA—Economic Cooperation Administration — involve some political as well as economic issues affecting the highest government policy making in the United States, the 16 .western European nations, western Germany. China— the whole world. The past four months' bntlle gel..ting the Marshall Plan authorized by Congress Is a breeze compared to what blows ahead. They are not just the problems of starting a new j business, organizing a staff, decid- [ng wno shuffles what papers, who ileals with the Europeans at what levels, how much of the $5,000,000,000 goes to each recipient country and what for. Mr. Hoffman looks upon the European Recovery program as primarily the problem of raising the income of some 210,000,000 people from a total 'of $1CO,OOO.OJO,OCO a year to a minimum ot $130,008,000,000 a year. That means increasing the amount of goods they produce for their own consumption. It means raising their own sttmdavd of living by a third. Belore a start can be made on this production problem, the political climate of Europe will have to be calmed down. Three years of postwar political ^urnioil is enough to wreck ur.y civilization. The key is .probably western Germany, which before the war was the biggest industrial producing unit of Europe and today is the one least recovered. May Completely Revise Policy On Germany Whafc looms ahead is a. possible decision to abandon most of ths postwar curbs put on Germany. This could mean an end to chs war crime trials, an end to de- Nazification, an end to the repara,- tions program in order to get going on nn all-out production drive. Whether or not Administrator Hoffman has the authority or the influence to force such a decision is by no means certain. It would mean not only a new policy for the U. S. State Department and the Army which handle occupation government. It would also mean new policy for the European allies who stand to gain moot from German reparations and wno hnve most to fear from building up German industrial production potentials. But the wheels of trade have to be set rolling again in western Europe as a whole—not just parts of it. This calls for a lot of new and drastic action. It means new customs unions, lowering trade barriers. Getting consumer goods in distribution .so that fanners and workers will have something to buy with the money they get for their crops and labor is the key to the whole business. The food pioblem now looks relatively simple, it is only 40 per cent, or S2,OM.OOD.COO out of the f irst year's appropriations. It involves only doing more of what State, Agriculture and Army have been doing since the enti of the war. Tiie 60 per cent of the procurement problem that's left—representing some S3,OSO,003,CCO—is only one-sixteenth as large as the $50,- C103.COO.OOO Ifcncl-lcase program. While the whole 55.000,000,030 European recovery program represents less than one-fortieth o( th3 j $200,000,000,000 U. S. annual income, j t must be handled so that it does not disrupt American business. Merely granting each country its quota of funds and allowing it '.o do its own procurement would create chaos. It would amount to giving 16 international buyers search warrants authorizing them to compete with each other for available supplies in U. S. markets. Th-it could only lead to American shortages and higher prices. Seek Free, Flexible Economy The easy way to prevent that might be through economic controls on priorities, allocations and prices. Administrator Hoffman is known to be against them. President Truman and his administration are for them, on" a stand-oy sis at least. Hotlman is Just back' Irom an economic mission Ui Japan for the A r my. There he saw an economy under rigid controls, and not doing any too well, either. He therefore wants the European recovery program handled in as free an economy as possible, and through normal trade channels. laken at each meal. One good way lo do ihis is to eat until the appetite Is satisfied and then always take a few more mouthfuls. More food can be taken also just by eating extra me&ls. A small midmorning meal, an afternoon or bed-time snack of weight-gaining foods are helpful. A glass of half milk and half cream is a good example of what could be taken. It cannot be emphasized too often that a~ balanced diet must be kept up. Almost anyone who does not have some serious disease can gain weight by following the plan of decreasing or at least not increasing activity and increasing the lood eaten.
