NOV. 30, Distinguished Guest For all its hospitality, everyday Arm-rica takes n somewhat per- fun<:tory attitude toward the red carpet which the government periodically rolls out for foreign dignitaries. But the vi.sit of his imperial majesty, Mohammad Kcza Shah Pahlavl. the Slmhin- shah of Iran, is different in a •way. True, thin distinguished visitor — a king of kings, no less—wants n handout. Two hundred and fifty million dollars, he thinks would he about right. But he also turns out to be friendly and informal, and America's welcome is heartfelt and warm. Thus far, this young rulor from the land of ancient Persia has .mood up exceedingly well under some of the wonders of America. He look official Washington and ils receptions in stride; he charmed the coeds as an hunorary and for a time n hatlcss, captain at a college foothall game; he survived a ride up Broadway as the guest of New York City and Graver Whalen, and he impressed the United Nations delegates at a reception in the Waldorf-Astoria. For some weeks to come his imperial highness will travel hither and yon in this country, a panoplied tour that is calculated to prove beneficial to the main purpose of his visit to this count ry. These .ire great days for the lr::dt'r of a nation which is an oil- rk-h buffer directly in the path of llusoian aggression toward the Middle East. But whatever the'il. strategic and financial jnt locations, the Shah himself. Ly hi.; quiet and engaging per- .son^ljty has evoked from the Ametvan put/lie a favorable reaction. Unstable Currency A few weeks ago Britain devalued the pound down to a realistic level. As a result, Britain should have a stable currency. But the pound is still being devalued in practice. It can be bought now at 12 per cent under the official rate. Stability has not followed devaluation. For centuries the British pound was the most stable currency in the world. But Britain has fallen into evil times. Its government policy of superimposing a welfare state on the country in adverse circumstances is doing nothing to help. All this Is reflected in the fact that the world lacks confidence in the future of the pound. Here in America the dollar has not been devalued officially since 1933. President Truman declares such action will not be taken while he is in office. But the danger is not that the dollar wilil become worth less by official dictum. The danger is that it will become worth less as a result of policies that cause people to lose confidence in it. The heaping of one government deficit after another on top of the already stupendous debt is one way to cause the decline of monetary value. The country's strength of production, agriculturally and industrially, is the one hopeful factor today. Any recession in production, in the presence of growing gobs of money, will bring thle country to a painful experience such as many other peoples are suffering. Every American should accept it as basic that if the dollar ever plunges downward in value, as the pound is doing, he is In for bad times and all the welfare promises he is currently receiving will be a mockery. Count Your Blessings How do you spend your leisure time? Sundays in particular? Go to church? If it is a golf game, there are ample facilities in practically every community. If you prefer a trip in the country there are miles of, pleasant highways over which you may drive an automobile, a product of American industry which is universally owned and used. Should you stay at home there is a wealth of literature to entertain you. The radio brings the best in music. And so it goca. All these blessings are yours because you are an American citizen. Because you live in a land which guarantees personal liberty and, to date, free enterprise. No other people on earth have them to the same extent as now enjoyed by the people of the United States. In no other country in the whole world are people so fortunate. The English do not have these blessings under socialism. Communism la bringing only slavery to Russians. The American people are In danger of losing their political integrity because they are taking their manifold blessings as a mutter of fact. They are so comfortable in their surroundings they fall to see a tendency in government which will rob them of many of the things guaranteed by democracy. This would bo a good time to not only count, your blessings, but to renew your do- termination to defend a way of life which has brought them to you. Historians suy Puritans introduced football to America. If M0 , it has lost Homo of its standards in the meantime. Do You Remember?

Is it proper for a bride-to-be to call her friends by telephone to request that, they serve aa bridesmaids at her wedding? A. No; it vis much better if she calls personally upon each of her friends for this purpose. If this IH not possible, as in the case of out- of-town friends, then friendly notes of request should be written by hand. Q. Is it. necessary for a man to rise when being- introduced to nnother man, and also to shake hands? A, Yes to both questions, of course, they are so far apart that it would be awkward to shake hands. Q. What Is the best way for a man to ask a girl for a dance? A. 'May I have the next dance," is probably the best manner. Household Scrapbook To Eliminate Roaches Gum camphor is a speedy remedy to rid the house of roaches. Another Is to. sprinkle powdered borax mixed with sugar near their haunts. A rag soaked in kerosene will also drive them away, if left near the infested area. Leather Furniture Old stains may be removed from leather furniture by coating with a mixture of powdered pipe clay and water, mixed to a paste. Allow to remain several hours, then brush off, repeating if necessary. .
