In addition to authorizing markings for the zone, the Council voted to make Eighth Street a one-way street (on a trial basis) for loading niul unloading of students. Certainly no one can deny tiie fact that such a system will remove a lot of vehicles from congested Chickasnw- ba . . . vehicles which will park to lake on students in spite of "No Parking" signs. These parked vehicles in the past have created one of the city's primary traffic hazards in that they provide the "cover" from which children can walk blindly into the street. Efforts oC UIK Junior Chamber of Commerce in erecting a fence along the north nr school side of Chickasuwba largely put n stop to parking in front of the school. Widening and improving of KighLli Street and its designation as a one-way unloading area on the West side of the Central school grounds will doubtless make it easier for parents to pick lip their children witli comparative safety. The solution adopted by I lie Council in ily last meeting seems by far a wisir one than that which proposed cut- tiiii.' a gate in the iVnte . . . which would not only nullify the utility of the I'cnoe but wo-.Id re-crraty the parking problem. Red Cross Can Make Lot of Wishes Come True Tht six-yrar-uld girl of Narvik. Norway, would like U> know that her last wish came Irnr. Fro nilhe talk of her parents, the child had k-arned of the sut'lVriug of the war wait's of Korea. She, who knew what suffering could be. From the talk of her parents, thv and then one day she asked her mother and daddy if she couldn't sum! the Korean children some clothes. Before anything could be done about it, she died. Keniemljering their child's wish, the mother and father asked persons coming to the funeral to bring children's clothes instead of flowers. There came 20 woolen sweaters and nine woolen scarfs. They were sent to Korea by the Norwegian Red Cross. The story of the child of Narvik has u strong appeal in the confused world of today. We like to know oT the simple, good things that people wish for others. We like to know of people who make those wishes come true. And we wish, all too momentarily perhaps, that we could do more such things ourselves. We can. The Ked Cross of/ Norway, which sent the clothing to Korea, is but one of 68 such Red Cross societies throughout the world which do countless such deeds daily. One of these societies, and one of the greatest, is our own American Red Cross. Its big job now is helping to ease the shocks and the pain of war for our fighting men and their families. It serves as a counseling friend of the serviceman with troubles. It provides the necessary factual reassurances about him for his family back home. It provides necessary financial help for (he serviceman and his family. At Ihe same time it is the one greatest source of help for disaster's destitute — victims of floods, fires, storms — who are unable to help themselves. Remember the great Kansas and Missouri floods of last summer? Thousands of men, women and children of that flood area know what Red Cross help means. The organization spent more than § 12,000,000 in that one relief operation—all of it on people, the people who actually had suffered and who couldn't gel back on their feet without help. American Red Cross help goes all over the world—equipment for a children's tuberculosis hospital in Italy; food for flood sufferers of India; food nnd medicine for earthquake victims in South America. Still, it and its sister societies aro never too big or too busy to help make come true the last wish of a little girl in Norway. The Ked Cross can make lots of such wishes come true—your wishes. A contribution to the. organization's current fund drive can insure the granting of yours. MONDAY, MARCH 17, 1952 Views of Others Controlled Economy Means More Control Prices are (ailing because civilian goods production is running much above estimates, said G. P.

Many other statements of the sort from public and private sources could be cited. They arc all furnishing evidence for Hie same general thesis. Any attempt at management of a. national economy does two things. First, it makes necessary much complicated estimating of future needs and supplies. "This, in turn, makes necessary much readjusting of the flow of raw materials and Aemipioccssed and processed capital and consumers' Kooils. second, it makes inevitable some scvt- OLIS intsgtie.-vsLng. This makes necessary more estimating, guessing and readjusting. More and more energy is lost in the grinding of the gears of the national economy. That is the reason applied socialism has a way of bringini; austerity instead of prosperity. The old law o[ supply nnd demand pet.<i out of kilter »t times. Some things could be done by law to help it manage its own course in a more orderly fashion. And it will break down on ocra- Mini;- of ijreat niuiotial emergency and tired more lirlp to help it.Kplf. But. by* nnd large, it is the beM "Bovt'inor" available for the engine that handles the national product. —Dallas Morning News SO THEY SAY Divide and Conquer And It's Your Money They Argue About— By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK W',—The Federal Reserve, the Treasury and the Con- rcss are in a hot debate over money.

SECURITY GOVERNED BY MILITARY AN'D DIPLOMACY The reason given for all this mystery is that military security makes It necessary. European governments are said to be insisting that their military budgets and defense strengths be kept secret. And the U. S. government refuses to give a country-by-country breakdown on foreign aid for fear that one government might get Jealous if it found another was getting more from "Uncle Sugar." What docs not seem to have penetrated is that- this is no year for blank-check writing. It has to be proved to Congress that this expenditure LS nece.ssary. The folk at home have to be shown that European countries are doing all thay can for their own defense. There is a wave of pessimistic fee-line in Congress and elsewhere that France is (ailing apart. Britain is believed by some to be ready for taking over by Mr. "Annoying" Beman's opponents for more econ-1 van and his neutralists.

Or can inflation be held down by Federal Re- landicap. but one which most who re properly treated, learn to sur- lount. II Is considered to be a ner- ous or emotional disorder. The xncl is not known. Probably, som? children arc born undisposed to the disorder: thai >. they mav be called a "stutterer- vpe." Stuttering is not inherited. ml tire nervous constitution which nokcs for susceptibility to this P"ech difficulty is probably inborn.

Children of the "stutterer-lvpc" nay live for a lonp; time without ievelopine any speech defect. 1111- ess they have some shock or acci- lent which upsets their -nervous ivstfin. Then something happens vhivh briiwi out the difficulty for he first time. There are two slaves In the de- ,'elopment of stuticrinR. The -nances of stopping the trouble are nuch greater in the first stride than before anxiety and' feelings of in- "eriority have developed. A sintering child should never be pun- =hed with a hrmc of breaking him of the habit. The youngster can't help it! The treatment at this stage Is principally to slow down the pace of living and remove ns much excitement and tension as possible. Family quarrels, games nr nmusc- ment-s which arc too exciting, and similar avoided. stimulations should be STRAIN INDUCES STUTTERING Left-handedness is probably not fundamentally related to stutter- Ing. A left-handed child who is made to use his right instead of his left is being forced to do something contrary to what was intended by nature. This, of course, puts an added strain on the r.rr- vous system and in a child who Is predisposed to stuttering, might be serious enough to' bring on the symptom. A great deal has been learned about stuttering and its treatment in recent years. When treatment is begun early the results are often astonishingly good. Many famous people have suffered from speech defects, including Moses, Aristotle, Virgil. Charles Lamb, and Clnra Barton, the founder of the American Red Cross. Great accomplishments can, therefore, be made in spite of a speed] defect of this sort. Severnl medical schools or universities have speech clinics to help the stutterer and th serve manipulation ol money and credit.? Should interest rates go higher? This would be a noon to savers, who have been getting it, in the neck for years, but a pain to borrowers, who have been profiting from cheap money? * • t INVOLVED INIHKECTLY is the question: should taxes go higher to hold down the deficit? Should the interest, rates on the federal debt be allowed to rise? Some say this would kill chances of taxes coining dopn soon, because the cost of carrying the mounting federal debt will drain the Treasury still more and keep the need for taxes great. , 'A^ At issue, too. is the Federal Re-™ serve's power to tighten or ease credit curbs. If tightened, bankers say the threat of future inflation — meaning even higher cost of living and even cheaper dollars — would be less. If cased, storekeepers, auto dealers, home builders say they could do mere business with smnlJ-income people wanting to buy on time. And businessmen wanting to expand their plants, carry inventories, or engage in normal business pursuits requiring credit would find life easier, since cheap money favors those in debt. Backers of tl>e Federal Reserve's independence say the banking system must be kept free of politics. If it is, some in Congress hold, the system will be in a position to throw stumbling blocks in any government economic planning bankers don't like -by easing or Tightening the supply of money. The banking system could ball up many plans. * * • BUT IF THE party In power can run the federal reserve systcni^M through a closer tie-up to CongreUr^ or to tile executive, bankers say a free economic system would be endangered. Cheap money—inflation —could be turned on at will as fl vote-getter. Your savings bonds are involved in the debate. The Treasury is being urged to make them more attractive—some suggest higher interest rates; others would make the yield greater in the earlier years of a bond's life: some would restore the tax exemption sueli interest , once had. The Treasury badly wants to sell more bonds to you.

This would be logical enough, since East could be fairly sure ol winning a trump trick, and would hope to cash the spade ace first. Such a lead would have given North the .slam in hearts. He would ruff the ace of spades, lead out three rounds of trumps, and later discard three diamonds on high clubs and spades in the South hand. ! As the bidding actually went, South made a very doubtful bid of six no-trump, and West made a shrewd double. North got panicky about the .spades and ran to seven dia:m:tuls.
