Dairy **«w«p»pw Pub. tt gwapapw PabH*b«T» SATURDAY, Hot Proof Of Wisdom United States Senator Smith of Maine—the lady Senator Smith— claims to be one of the "five le*«t talkative" Senators. She in- si§t» It Is slanderous to charge that -women talk "Incessantly." In fact, she Insists, and proclaims, and st*te» BO incessantly that it seems at times she is the mo»t talkative of the 98 Senators. Senator Smith Is right in away, though. 'Women do talk a lot, but then so do men. Women rate hfeh aa yak-yakers possibly because their voices are high-pitched and .carry far. But men are their equals In gum-beating. The principal difference between them is in what they talk about. With women it's fellers and fashions or children and. the neighbors .depending—on age and marital status. With men of any age its women—with politics and business, added topics among the mature, baseball and football among the;immature. The average output of word- age may be higher for women. than for men, but the total,, if they could be compiled, would probably balance as between the sexw. But there is probably substantial truth in another generalization, that women are deficient in logic. To get back to Mrs. Smith again. The lady from Maine says that because women don't talk as much as generally believed, one of them should be nominated by the Republican* for President or Vie* President in 1952. The connection is obscure. Pleasant though it is, silence is not necessarily proof of •wisdom. There have been strong, silent, able men in public life- but many silent men have simply been men with nothing to say. It was not without reason that the slang- makers adopted the dumbbell as a symbol for inarticulate stupidity. Some of the nation's best known Presidents could be described as garrulous, such as the Adamses, Jefferson, Lincoln and the Roose- velts. Coolidge, rated the most taciturn of Presidents, actually talked a lot. In th* legislative branch, the most famed Senators have been the orators. No one ever suggested that Calhoun, Clay, Webster and Borah were not also me n of great Intellect. Nor can a ready tongue and platform ease be regarded as foreign to men of action, as shown by General MacArthur and, of an earlier vintage. Gens. Hugh Johnson and Smedley Butler — accomplished and frequent speakers all. Silence is not quite the virtue that Senator Smith thinks it is, nor does it inevitably suggest suitability for _the Presidency. A candidate for President, man or woman, needs other qualifications than verbal restraint. Greasing The Skids Fresh from a tour of England, Gen. William Wilbur confirms what has .long been known as Great Britain's great weakness •which has put it on the skids as a world power. Especially revealing is what General Wilbur says about the foisting of feather-bedding and slow-down tactics on^, management by British unions. The worker is realizing cbe fondest dream of organized labor, the assurance of continuing employment through spreading the work. That dream obviously is a chimera. As the working classes grimly, bans .on to:.theu-_three_ squares for dear life. Britain's industry is going by the boards. Not only is the labor government abetting all sorts of suicidal practices, but it is adding further muscle to the death grip by taxing business to the point of suffocation.. Capita] that might fee ploughed, back into modern- lied . machinery and expanded plant capacity ia- going., instead to support the muddling bureaucracy that .helps perpetuate- ^th« present scheme of .things. Atomic IHfens* Recently it was Bernard Baruch, now it is David E., Lilienthal, who warns against the lack of civilian defenses in the event of sudden atomic war. Recently Representative Kennedy of Massachusetts wrote President Truman that he was "mocked" to find that only- one government official is working full time on, plans for civilian defense. This latest "warning by Mr. Lillenthal referred especially to the vulnerability of government facilities in Washington. His remarks coincided with an Atomic Enerfiy ramml8«iaa rnpnrt which stated that three well placed atomic bombs could wipe out most vital functions of the federal government. Household Scrapbook Windows To give windows and mirrors a high polish, use a teaspoon of kerosene in a basin of hot water. A clean cloth, dipped into the water and wrung almost dry, should be used. Allow the surface to be almost dry before polishing-. Custard Pie Begin baking the custard pie in a hot oven to set the crust, then reduce the heat so that the custard may cook slowly. The Bag Bug After washing and rinsing- the rag rug or carpet dip it into a heavy starch. It will stay clean longer and stay in better position on the floor. There's No Such Thing- President Truman's promise to present to Congress a "watertight" budget is so much double talk. There never has been a budget that couldn't be cut and there never will be. All that is needed is a moderate amount of determination and a willingness to lay the axe to unessential items, of which there are always a great many in any President's program. Mr. Truman has announced on several occasions that he will prosecute vigorously his idea of a welfare state. Even a limited excursion into this field will cost billions of dollars. Ranking members of both parties in Congress are in no mood to accept the Truman dictum that the completed budget will contain no items which cannot be eliminated or reduced in extent. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Mr. and (Mrs. Merwin L. Packer and family were visiting at Ocean Side, Long Island, N. T.- Mr., and CMrs. Alvin A. Wooster and family, of Binghampton, N.

"Ancient and Modern Necromancy, Alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced," will be the subject of the Lesson-Sermon for Sunday, Nov. 27, 1949. The Golden Text is from II Chronicles 18:9. "The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong In the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.'" Selections fronj the Bible include the following: "They which build- ed on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands the work, and with the other hand held a weapon." (Neh. 4:17). Correlative passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, Include the following (p. 454): "The understanding, even in a degree, of the divine All-power destroys fear, and plants the feet in the true path, —the path which leads to the house built without hands 'eternal in the heavens.' Human hate has no legitimate mandate and no kingdom. Love is enthroned. That evil or matter has neither intelligence nor power, is the doctrine of absolute Christian Science, and this is the great truth which strips all disguise from error." METHODIST CHURCH Bev.
