Two Alsatian civilians watched Him intently, mindful of newspaper accounts of a tobacco shortage in America. "Attendez!" one of the civilians said finally, tugging at the sleeve of the Baltimore, Md, soldier. 'Eet eez not necessaire."

OTHMAN Washington, (U.R) -- It's a good thing I'm a good ducker; my boss tossed a copy of the new federal budget my way and said, analyze it. He missed, I am happy to report. 'The document weighs 5 pounds flat; it is 1% inches thick and can be classified as a blunt instrument. Blunt's the word; it says we're going to spend better than §80,000,- 000,000 this coming year. You don't catch a dope like me monkeying with a sum like that, I'll gust leaf through the 851 pa (res and stick to things that I can understand, such as 522,200 for the operation of the District of Columbia, doe pound and $3,500 for the rental and operation of a launch by onr ambassador to Tnrkey. Things like that make sense. At least I think so. There are items of $970 for senatorial packing boxes, $40,000 for repairs to house of representatives furniture (those boys must play rough), and $25 for street car fares for officials of the National Botanical Garden. Then there's $4 for the transportation of things at the white house. The budget simply says things; it doesn't say what things. Four bucks, in any event, is the smallest item in the book. The government needs $500,300 to inspect locomotives; $30,000 to buy a building lot for the nostoffice in Baltimore; $2,047,. 000 for the bureau of entomology, which concerns bugs, and $100 for refunds by the agriculture department "to persons whose identities and whereabouts are unknown." They'll show up later maybe. The bureau of standards wants 5469,000 for operating expenses, ncludingr purchase ot goggles, toots, rubber doves and aprons. The weather bureau has got to have $11,960,000 for the continued reporting of its news (mostly bad right now) while the office of fishery co-ordination needs S225,- 000. The fish co-ordinators, it says here, were hired by the interior department "in order to bring in every pound o£ fish." Secretary of Interior Ickes and helpers will get $1,148,320 in wages, so long as none of them make any radio speeches designed to influence the passage of laws in congress. The high commissioner of the Philippines has turned in an account for $296,000,'' including travel expenses in the islands during the 1946 fiscal year. Hear that, Tokyo? The state department insists on $1,725,000 for hire of autos, kavasses (you look it up), dragomen, porters,' interpreters, and prison guards in far places. The District of Columbia alcoholic beverage control board wants $1,000 for the purchase of samples. As for Othman at this moment, he could use a sample, himself. Senate Votes Same Fee to Ministers Des Moines, (/P)--The s e n a t e voted Tuesday to pay ministers who offer prayer in the leigsla- ture the same fee they received in the past, and to increase the amount given clergymen who live considerable distances from B e s Moines. At previous sessions ministers opening the daily sessions w i t h prayer h a v e received $10, half from each branch. The house voted Monday to pay them 5 cents a mile from home to Des Moines and return instead of the flat $10! The senate Tuesday voted to pay them $10 or 5 cents a mile, whichever is greater. The proposal now goes back to the house. The senate action was on an amendment to the house resolution. It was made by Sen. Ralph W. Zastrow (R.-Charles City). "It's Only When You Get Tense That You Get Cold"-Tarzan Minneapolis, (#")--The mercury hit 15 below here Tuesday but Carl Bourdeaux--known to his friends as Tarzan--insisted that if you relax and keep your mind off the weather you .can't get cold. To prove it he went about his work as a timekeeper at the Cid- dill shipyard at nearby Savage in trousers and a light-weight, short- sleeved T-shirt. "Tarzan," who is 33, has never worn a coat. "I'm impervious to the weather hot or cold," he explained. "It is simply mind over matter. Relax and you're all right. It's only when you get tense that you freeze." Bourdeaux insisted that he doesn't feel cold. "I'd put a coat on it I did." he explains. U. S. Strategic Air Force Headquarters Is Moved to France PariSr.(/P)--Headquarters of the U. S. strategic air forces in Europe-- which co-ordinates operations of the U. S. 8th air force in the United Kingdom and the U. S. 15th air force in Italy--have been moved from Britain to France, it was disclosed Tuesday Baths and Shaves Are Tahoo for Residents of Columbia, Pa. Columbia, Pa., VP)--Baths and shaves were taboo in this Susquehanna river town of 12,000 Tuesday after an ice jam-flooded the Columbia Water company's pumping station, leaving only a 2-dav water supply. y Company Manager Theodore Kam asked residents to postpone bathing and shaving and urged restaurants to serve bottled drinks as a water substitute. Industries ceased operations. Kain said it may take "4 or more" days to break the jam and put the pumps back in operation. 2 BattlefronfHeroes Pitted Against Each Other-^for Home Leave By' HAL BOYLE With the U. S. 30th Infantry Di^ 01 *. ^'f'um, Jan. 8 (Delayed) ")--Two American officers both heroes who had gambled for life and death on the battlefield, stood tensely over a deck of playing csrds. Now they were pitted against each other in another great gam- ble--lor home leave. Both Maj. Halph Kerley, Houston Tex, and Capt. Joe Reaser, Gettysburg, Pa., were entitled on the records to a 30-day leave in the United States but there was transportation space for only one Realizing his responsibility, Col Branner P. Purdue, commander of the 120th infantry regiment, carefully checked each officer's record. He found each had been awarded the distinguished service cross, the silver star, the bronze star, the purple heart. "I can't choose between you" said Purdue. "Cut the cards." So the 2 young heroes leaned tensely over the cards. They cut Kerley turned up the ace of spades, the top card in the deck 'I have always been lucky," he said, looking regretfully across at Pownall Serves on U. S.

McFARLANE IS ASSEMBLY DEAN Chief Aim Is to Keep "My Feet on Ground" Des Moines, (ff)--The dean of the Iowa legislature--Rep. Arch W. McFarlane, (R.-Waterloo),--set an example for the younger members of the 51st general assembly Tuesday. He said his chief aim for the current session was 'just to keep . my feet on the ground." McFarlane, who is serving his 18«h session, 13 of which were regular session and 6 special, said he was not interested in any special legislation. Be said he had no plan to introduce any bills. "I'll just wait and see what :omes in," he commented. "If everything seems to be covered, I'll just sit back and cast my vote as I believe best. If not, I probably will introduce a bill or two to cover what I think is necessary." McFarlane, 59, is a full dealer. Rep. A. H. Avery (R.-Spencer) is one of the eldest members of the house in point of age. At 74, he is serving his 6th regular session. He also served in 3 special sessions. Avery is in the insurance business.
