John Putnam, Jr., was shot down on his 52nd mission over Europe during the war, his sorrowing family lias started a peace movement. It is gathering public support here with surprising specrt. The peace movement, known as World Security Workers, has gained support of hundreds of persons in tho city, as well as leading citizens in oilier parts of the country. Dr. Albert F.instein is one of (he supporters, its promoters claim. The Idea ol world security workers, a crusade to create a mass demand for the establishment of world government, was bom in the family of John B. Putnam, Cleveland attorney. After the death of John, Jr., the family felt it must do something to prevent a repetition of warfare. Out of months of discussion with civic leaders, World Security Workers emerged. The organization advocates centralized world government with law and n. military arm to enforce its decision upon the nations, but has no blueprint of the form such a government should take. It is meant to serve only as an Instrument through which millions of people, wanting an orderly world, can make themselves heard by their. government ' leaders, according to the founders. The Putnams believe that when the swell of sentiment becomes impelling enough, extending through the U. S. and eventually the world, national leaders cannot resist the demand lor the establishment of a world government. "H Russia, at first, docs uot caie to come along," said Mrs. Putnam, who runs the organization's office here, "she'll find herself .behind a wall of people far more impenetrable than the iron curtain. "There lias alivays been a government for war. Now we'll hfwe world government for peace witli rules so strong that nobody can upset us again." Membership in World Security Workers is accomplished by signing a pledge to give active support to the cause of world government. There are no dues. course with hot drinks. Christmas decorations were usec throughout the entertaining room: of the home. We the Women By Kuth Millett NEA Staff Writer The year 1M7 was not kind t» American women. It offered tha American family no re«l feeling ot iccurlty. The talk was all disturbing. Talk of another war. Talk of the mis- try In other landi that made the individual feel both responsible and {helpless. Talk o(^ high prices, and^ worse to com*. The spotlight of publicity tunied on ugly stories of KnthMUlelt ?Lf d'urinTtn; war. The wage-earned o! the family worried over living costs, and became discouraged when savings dwindled instead ot mounted. Bitter Jokes among servicemen of World War II about dusting off their uniforms, for World War Hf. And women, themselves, who had found real and useful work during the war years, needed, but did not find, a real outlet for the desira to be doing something constructive. Iii-stead of being offered, worth-while jobs, they were offered a radical style change. What to Do? No. 1947 didn't offer women, much. Or ii it did, they didn't know where to begin. So they busied themselves running from store to stor« trying to cut down a little here, a little there, on Ihc cost of living. They let down their hems and talked about th» "new look." And every time anyone mentioned the word WAK, they remembered the loneliness of the war years they and their children had lived through. Child Dies in Fire DEVALLS BLUFF, Ark., Dec.. 11.
