Thank heavens, they taught you more about cooking than about International law or the history of early Roman band instruments. For you and I are going to live in our kitchen the entire first month after I get back from Korea. We are going to explore that cookbook page by page and menu by menu. I'll phone the grocer and say: "Just send over everything you've got on your first shelf today. To- lie In It; I want to rub it under my arms and into my hair. I want to squish it between my toes.

And that is a good sign that the shooting Is about over in Korea—the big shooting I mean. Tor there's an old Army saying that • war U won when the soldiers spend more time griping about their chow th»n worrying about their personal safety.

"It Is-sad but true that the so- called weaker sex is the weak soot in safety." Paul Jones, the council's information director, told women delegates yesterday at the group's annual convention. "The Irony of it Is that, as any man knows, tt is not the weaker tex al all, but the greatest pot-ti- Ital force safety could have. We have failed utterly to arouse In women the crusading spirit that sends them into other worthy causes with a zeal that makes victory undeniable. "This slrnuge reluctance to par ticipale more actively In safety i. all the more surprising when you consider the basic maternal Instinct is supposed to be a protective urge." Jones said the "am-zing apathy' ol women toward the accident problem is one of U-e "biggest obstacles to any real reduction of the accident toll."
