That Beauty tontcst Time ~ls Upon Us .»*·* ' ·tf WASHINGTON. UP--The zany, or Tjjjiss America,- season is upon us . and we won't hear the last of it ^ until the weekend after Labor Day. s.S- There wouldn't be such a season It the.pretty girls knew what lies t,,liihead once--and if--they are se- .-lected to represent their state or ^dty. at Atlantic City. , They go through' the tortures of ^jBie 1 'mis-behaved during that hectic -).w«(«lf.

Next year when the "Queen" returns to hand over her crown to the new winner, she may bump head-on into reality, All of a sudden she becomes a "former Miss 1 America." The let -down is all too violent. She may even find that the committee forgot to reserve her a room, CALL 731 C.I. CAB LINE I saw one worn-out "Queen" break qut la a flood of tears when the master of ceremonies forgot to call her on stage for her number. ,The girls are subjected to a gruelling week Uut would send most strong men to the bug house. After going through their county, district and state contests they arrive at Atlantic City with their luggage and their mothers and face a rude awakening. They find they can't even talk to a man on the telephone-- not even their own dads. They must have breakfast with- a dozen cruel- eyed judges who make notes on whether' they butter their bread on both sides or pitch their scrambled eggs down with a knife instead of a fork. Most of them learn (o their surprise that they don't know how to walk down a ramp properly. They can't balance Iheir hips and their shoulders flip-flop, Sonic of them actually walk like a man trying to nible his way out of a telephone booth. And as they go down the lon_ board walk half naked in their bathing suits, alw%ys there are stares from 10,000 people, including those eagle-eyed experts who judge them for talent, figure and personality. One-third each. The kids are so nervous that many of them start their songs half a tone flat or perhaps a couple of steps behind the orchestra when e^ try to impress the folks with a jig or a waltz. I helped judge nine of the Washington, D. 0., hopefuls in their semi-final contest. We picked -what we thought were the three best who will compete in the finals soon. The girl who got the most points was a cute brunette named Linda Weisbrod. Her measurements were just about right for a tall girl. Go ing from top to bottom they were: Bust 38 inches, waist 23V4, hips 37 and shoe-size 7W. for Oinn»r MAR1ANNA, Ark. UP--H wasn't a dinner bell but it served the same purpose.

SHOE SALON -- FIRST FLOOR Austria Victim of Its Friends in Occupation ·y PHIL NIWSOM United Prett Foreign Anclytt If the Austrian are a little bitter, 10 one can blame There would be them, neither reason nor opportunity in Austria now for Drug Addiction Fought by Nuns WASSENBERG, Germany quiet, small hospital run by Catho lic nuns in the remote forests of Northwest Germany is one of the main centers in the fight against drug addiction. The hospital is the only asylum for women drug and alcohol addicts in Germany, Twelve hundred women and girls have been under Johann. Strauss to compose his ro mantic "Blue Danube" or Mozart his brilliant concertos, or tot Men- Jel to discover his laws of heredity or Signumd Freud to ponder his heories about psychology. Austria, one of Hitler's early vie ,ims, today is the victim of its riends. Nine years ago, the Allies, including Russia, promised Austria ts freedom. . Now, while those, former enemies, Italy and Japan, enjoy a return oi complete sovereignly and West Germany is on the way to achiev- ng the same, Austria remains an occupied country Recently, the United Slates, Britain and France sought to bring re- icwed pressure on Russia to reach peace treaty for Austria. But the Austrian isn't going to lold his breiith until the treaty is ichieved. From .1949 until December, 1950, cpresentatK'cs of the occupying x)wers held 257 meetings on the Austrian treaty. 'Just when it eemed they were about to suc- ··eed, Russia resorted to her famil- ar monkey-wrench tactics by in- islinR that agreement on Austria hould be supcrccdcd by agreement »n the future of Trieste. There are no indications that Russia is any more ready to change her tactics now than she vas in 1950. Austrian lenders are hopeful of letting their case before the United Nations General Assembly next October, presumably on grounds continued occupation is a violation of human rights. Russia would have no chance to 'eto a General Assembly debate. On the other hand, the General Assembly has no means of enforcing any decision it might reach. So about the most to be gained vould be some embarrassment lo the Russians. And Russia has shown a marked ability to rcs'ist, embarrassment. Meanwhile, it appears that Aus- :ria will have to continue suffering occupation of its land and homes jy some 47,000 Russians,' 12,000 Americans, 8,000 Franch and 8,000 British. American money will continue lo pour into Austria where more than $900 million in Marshall Plan aid already has been spent. Of the five parlies involved-Austria, Russia, Britain, France and the U. S.--it may be said that only Russia is contented with the situation now. full of praise for the "asylum and 1 its management. "With some 50,000 drug addict* and three times as many alcoholics running loose in West Germany the little nuns of Wassenberg have 'done everything they could to help us fight the dope wave," one official pointed out. Alcoholism and drug addiction have increased ; greatly in''West Germany in recent .years, A large proportion of all alcohol and drug addicts are youths and women. treatment here during the last few years.

LOUIS, Mo. UP--Oid-Uiners who made up many of the weather rhymes that still persist · today may nol have known cirro-cumulus from strato-cunnilus clond.s but a meteorologist here is not one to coff at (.heir logic, ' Arthur A. Rausch of the St. Louis weather bureau says a surprising number of the ancient rhymes bear out their predictions because they were/founded on long observation. Today's weather -forecasts in many instances are bnsicnlly the same ns the old weather rhymes, only dressed up in technical language, Rausch said. For instance, there's .in old sailors' saying about cloud formations that goes like this; "Mackerel scales and marcs' tails make lofty ships carry low sails." Rausch said that would be transited into meteorological language somewhat as follows: "Cirro-cumulus cloud formations ' indicate approach of low. pressure area with accompanying wind, rain." For another example, R a u s c h j turned lo the accurate forecasting] of the Zuni Indians. One o f ' t h e i r j favorite sayings was: "The moon! her face if red be, of. water speaks she." Rausch explained that the rhmye was usually true because rain-laden clouds cause the moon to appear reel.

Turkey's grain storage and I r a n s - j por facilities, the first step in increasing the country's foreign exchange earnings through g r a i n exports, has been announced here by M. L.

He said part of the plan calls for expenditure of 52,500,000 in MSA funds to buy about 500 portable ,stccl grain hangars. Evidence Shattered TUPELO, Miss.
