FA'ffB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JANUARY IT, II High Court Rules UgainslWarBride Attorney General Upheld in Refusing To Okay U.S. Entry WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday upheld the government's Tight to exlude without a hearing war brides and other nlicns deemed to be poor security risks. Splitting 4 to 3, the tribunal ruled sepcifically that Mrs. Ellen Knauff. German-born bride of an American veteran wa. 1 ; properly denied admission to Ihe United Stales by an order of the attorney general. The court minority argued that the government should have been required'to prove openly lhat she was regarded inadmissible. She and Kurt W. Knauff were married in Frankfurt, Germany, on Feb. 28, 1848. Knaulf now is a civilian employe of Ihe U.S. Army at Frankfurt. Mrs. Knauff applied on Aug. 14, 1948, for admission to tills country, but was excluded by order of Tom C. Clark, then U.S. attorney general. . Justice Minton delivered the decision on behalf of himself, Chief Justice Vinsotj and Justices Reed and Burton. Justice Jackson wrote a dissent in which Justices Black and Frankfurter joined. Frankfurter also wrote a separate dissent. Justices Douglas, who is recovering from an accident, and Clark, as an interested party, took no part. Blames Jealous \Vuinan In fighting Mrs. Knauff's effort ' to gain entry to this country, the Justice Department cited this let. ter Clark wrote in connection with the exclusion order: • ,* "r can see no alternative to excluding her. She was formerly a 'paid agent of the Czechoslovak!an government, and reported on Anier- icnn personnel assigned to the civil censorship division in Germany. -:The Federal Bureau of Investigation r.feels that she would be a hazard to internal security." • Mrs. Knaulf denied the allegation .'•'In her appeal. She said she believed •she was "a victim of a foul denunciation by a woman jealous of my husband." The husband, himself a naturalized American, got a temporary •leave of absence from his army jub to start court proceedings in New 'York on behalf of his wife. Federal "-.courts In New York, however, up- .held the attorney general's order, '• In his majority opinion, Minion said the war brides act relieved Mrs. Knauif of certain physical, denial "and documentary requirements and 'of quota provisions of the immigration laws; but other than these points, she still comes under the "Immigration laws. Minton added: '.'.' "There is no indication that Con' gzess intended to permit members 'of the armed forces to marry and ' bring into the United States aliens .who the President .acting through 'the attorney general, found should Vbe denied entry for security reasons."

The sup SAVE MONEY XVIII WOMAN'S work, In general, has always been recognized as one of the moit endless, boring, and tedious types of human end«av<w. But woman's work, today In particular, despite the many Utopian gadgets on the market thai are guaranteed to do ^verythinfj but talk and think for the modern housekeeper, Is the most difficult job of all. As if cleaning and cooking In its basic forms irere aot enough, a manochisl tyr>e of feminine society has discovered a more sophisticated method of drudgery; The new path to heaven is paved with spic and span. The new road lo hell Is waylaid by tattle talc gray. And the new prerequisite for immortality is social etiquette. The daily battles, waged ID the glorified names of clniintinnss and propriety, make World War I! seem like a game of cops and robbers, and are havoc-raising indeed. As a result, one of the heaviest crosses borne oy our Western civilization is the foolish complexities and laborious regulations that we grimiy attached to each iota of ordin: ry living, so that lo die, to marry, lo IM? born, or just even to eat dinner would wear out 10 copies of Emily Post, followed bv the development of an anxiety neurosis. And the psychiatrists cheer! 'Dirt," said my mother distinctly, pronouncing it like scarlet- Ecttcrcd sin, and speaking like • true disciple of modern housekeeping, to the novice, "is inexcusable." We were sitting In he: living room discussing my problems of keeping house. It wa_ not until late tall, after enough* patients had appeared to convince me lhat John and I were in DC further danger of requiring borne relief, that the idea had even entered my mind. Preoccupied with the more elemental • s p e c t s o* Betting slarted (a healthy perspective I should never have abandoned), dome* He work had been unquestionably ot 8 secondary nature; a whiff, * pat, * promise, a good, strong blow at the dust in passing, and a straightened bed. Now, ms my mother spoke. I realized my time had come. -All right,' 1 I saW gaily, trying to offset the uncomfortable seriousness in her tone of voice, "you tell me the minimum to be done in a house, -md 111 make that my maximum." My mother sniffed. "A house Is a hard taskmaster," she reaffirmed, "You have to dust daily, sweep up. wash the kitchen and bathroom floors, make the bed. besides doing many other chores like cleaning the blinds, laundering clothes, and ;>- forth. Vou might as well face U now," she finished, speaking again wilh Ihe proud sorrow of a martyr: "Woman's work is never done." "Now, wait a minut^" I said humcdly. Trn not out lo set new records I asked for the minimum only." "There I:, no mmlmuwi," she replied, and this was her creed: "A house must be kept thoroughly clean. It's woman's duty t- her husband. It lakes hard work, and energy, and time, but after all, you wanted to gel married, didn't you?" • being no polite, sooth- Ing reply to this refrain, I soon left, and set aboot doing this new kind of duly to my unsuspecting, tin demand ing. un raring husband. Bearing my mother's teachir^ in mind. I docilely set out on Ihe oldest female course Religiously I scoured and scrubbed, bowing down to our Twentieth Century precept that cleanliness Is no longer next lo godliness, bul has taken its place. Ol eours*, I toted to put method into my madness bj availing myself of every lauded household product on th* market, only lo find that excep* lor slightly different commercials and wrappings, they were all the same. Alas, there was no adequate substitute for mnnuai labor, I found myself almost uncontrollably resenting visitors who perched innocently on my couch, because I would have lo plump up those sofu pillows when they left, I even seriously considered disposing of our few, measly pieces of silver to the nearest junk dealer because of the polishing effort involved; and as for our slight collection of antique figures, 1 think even keeping the original Venus de Milo clean, if I won her in a raffle, would have seemed so burdensome a chore thai 1 probably would have turned her down. It is not that woman's work is never done. I discovered, but thai it is always being undone; and outside of actual slarviifcon arid developing a sinecuresn, os?*btic. hobo wny of life, J could sec no relief. S if to plague me further in my Inbyrinthian dilcmmn . o! domesticity, I was alarmed lo discover that we were sharing our caslle (a poetic lerm for the housework around my neck) with a member ol the rodent family. One Saturday night, when we returned from an early movie while Freda watchc< the telephone, she greeted us cheerfully with the news lhat we had a mouse. "A mouse!" I gasped, ns if she had informed me that o homicidal maniac har* invaded my home. "Sure," she said. "I heard it in the kitchen." "That's nolhing," John added quickly, "we had lots ol them at my aunt's," as il he were boasting thai they raised thoroughbreds, "Well, we didn't keen them nl my house." j replied indignantly. "Oh, John, wh nl'Il we do? "Do?" he seemed surprised. "Nothing. It's probably jusl a stray one, nnd will undoubtedly KO back wherever it came from Forget it." (To Be Continued.)
