(If)— President Truman is reporlcd to have § proved Redaiu.-Uion Bureau par- ipution in studies for development or tlic Arkansas, White and Red River basins. But Rep. Norrcll of Arkansas says announcement of this by Secretary of Ihc Interior Chapman "doesn't change tilings at all." Chapman inndc public a letter from Ihe Budget Bureau selling forth Mr. Truman's views on proposed waterways developments. The letter said the President approves Chapman's recommendation that the Army Kngineers not be permitted lo handle construction ol (lie proposed irrigation project in the Grand Prulrlc area in Arkansas. Norrell commented: ••The Interior Department still objects to the Grand • Prairie project being built by the Army Engineers and I am still insisting It." Norrcll salcl the pioj'cct is in pending authorization bill passed by the House and pending in the Senate. "The bill provides that the work shall be done by the War Department." the Congressman said. "This it approves the entire project, it does net carry authorizations for funds Jor the reclamation feature. However, 1 am confident we will obtain this authorization eventually and that the Army Engineers will construct the project." BLYTHEVILT.E (ARK.)

Rudolph Hess, to Britain during the Josef Stalin plot to invade Russia. This is related by Winston Cliur- hill in the third volume of his war memoirs '•The Grand Alliance," appearing serially in Life Magazine and the New York Times. Britain's wartime leader says that later at a meeting wilh Stalin in Moscow, the Russian premier refused to believe it when Churchill denied the suspected plot. VWhcn I make a statement of facts within my knowledge, I expect it to be accepted," Churchill writes, adding that Stalin merely grinned and said: "There arc lots of things that happen even here in Russia which our secret service does not necessarily tell me about." Churchill deplores the life sentence subsequently imposed on Hess as a war criminal, saying the German atoned for his guilt by "his completely fantastic deed of benevolence" in his abortive "peace mission." "He was a medical and not a criminal case," Churchill says, "and should he so regarded." He reveals that 11 months before Pearl Harbor, Franklin I). Roosevelt promised to help Britain win the war "at all costs and by all means." The pledge was delivered to England on Jan. 11, 19-11, by Roosevelt's personal envoy. Harry Hopkins, who Churchill quotes as saying: "The president Is determined that \ve shall win the war together. He has sent me here -in tell you that all costs by all means he will carry you through, no matter what happens to him." By the spring of thnt year, with passage of the lend-leasc bill, Churchill says the u. S. was moving nearer to w a r. cind Roosevelt's ";wwerful intervention soon became effective." Churchill praises Hopkins as "a true leader of men" who played a sometime decisive role in the war and who was for several years "the main prop and animator of Roosevelt himself." "He was a soul that flamed out of a frail and failing body," Churchill writes. FARMERS INSURANCE GROUP FAftMUS INSURANCE EXCHANGE 1 TIUCS INS.

We've Bone and mUscd it again. Missed what? Why, missed having our parlor picked as one of the Leu best-dre.sKcd living rooms In Manhattan. The selection was made by some housekeeping firm that says it manicures mast of tlic mansions "listed In the social register"—although 1 thought the social register catalogued people rather than homes. The firm said i( chose the teri living rooms from some 500 nominees. And it estimated the value of the furnishin«.s in the lucky winners at about $500,000- or $50,009 a room. There must be' some error here. Could any living room actually cost $50,000? What would they paper it with—mink? Who were the winners? Well. 960 fifth Avenue (Mrs, John need Topping) placed first. The second place living room declined to give tl.s ad- .but admitted it was owned by Elisabeth Arrtcn, a lady who bus notions about lotions. Then, third, came 550 Park Avenue, lived v.\ by Mrs. Danny Kayo: fourth. 20 East 60th Street, inhabited by Mrs. Deems Taylor, and Fifth. 630 Park Avenue, where Mrs. Mary Roberts Rinelunl dwells. All tile other prize-winning living rooms were from the tony Upper East Side except 25 Central Park a dark horse entry from the other side of town, in which li'lie! Merman sings after supper. It placed eighth. What worries me is what happens when I go home to 541 East 20lli Street, Apartment -8F. That is where my living room hangs out. How can I face it? The first thing it will say Is. "Don't try to hold the news back Ii-oin me, Why didn't 1 will?" And the more 1 try to console it. tlic more unhappy it will eel. (Of course, I wouldn't dare tell it that It didn't, even make- (lie original list of 500). "What's tlic matter, do I need my ma lilted?" it will plead. Or— "Tell me the tr.ith, Is my radiator showing?" This will go on for days and days. \vlth my living rom developing more :uid more of an inferiority complex. "Oh, you don't have to tell me— top I 1 know I'm hopelessly out-of-date," it will sigh "Just mahogany and old lace—that's me. I've hud my clay. You should have gotten yourself a younger living room." Then my living room will begin to brood—and blame me. "Look, big boy." it will sniff, "if you'd spend a little money on me maybe all the other parlors In town wouldn't be laughing at me. "I'm just as good as any other Suing room at heart." And it will go on: "I round out that those prlzc- vaiining living rooms had $50.000 worth of frou-frou In Ihom. You know what you spent on me allo- SCllK-r—$08-1.33? No wonder I look like I don't have anything to wear." Delicvc it or not, I'll then have to start borrowing from the bank to pep my old living room up. "Knoiigh of this mongrel Victorian scrap," it will say. "I'm going Inturistic even if you have to henna my sofa." And by the time we win a prize, well, I'll be living over the hill il Ihe poorhouse. And the neighborhood hockshop owner will be sitting in my living room, waiting to accept its medal. Isn't there already enough trouble in tile world caused by gh'ir:; 1 prizes to people? why start making parlors ambitious?
