PACE OX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.V COURIER NEWS Wolfcalls, To Women BT BAM AS A BRINES '(For Hal' Boyle) WITH U.S. TROOPS IN KOREA (OP)—A woman should go to war. It can mike her feel lo to 12 , yeara younger. And she can come away feeling pleasantly spoiled. A woman u «n oddity—and apparently a pleasant one — to the loot aoldier going up to the front, •he may look like a potato sack tied in the middle. But if she wears bright lipstick »nd a big smile, the wolf calli and whistles from 18 and XI year old men will make her feel like a real life pin-up girl. And it doesn't hurt her vanity- even it she should have to run lor miles around tables to keep away from colonel* with glints In their eyes. But there Is another side of It, too. Instead of making her leel 10 years younger, war can make her feel M years older. She rides In a jeep slithering al five miles an hour through a muti- sheathed arod. It's lined on both jides by infantrymen. She can tell they are weary by the way their backs are bent. As they plod along through the mud, some are bent more than others, depending on the burden they'carry. It may be a new 3.5 inch bazooza, a box of ammunition, a machlnegun, or a mortar base plate. Guilty Feellnj She feels ashamed riding In the jeep while they slog along on loot. She hunches her shoulders and pulls down her helmet. She looks at the soldiers out of the corner oj her eyes, not daring to look them square in the face. Her Jeep gathers speed as It leaves, the infantry behind and she »its upright again. -The jeep takes her to ft town which has just been knocked out by artillery and air strikes. She was colrl. But now she Is irarmed by.the heal from the burning houses and smouldering rubble. She is comforted by the thought there Is no enemy alive here—unless he could live in hell. With this thought In nilnd, she decides to look her womanly best when;she passes the infantry again on the return trip. She redoes her lips, pushes off her helmet and lets her hair blow in the breeze. This time the Infantrymen see her, all right. She knows it. At first they don't believe it. Then (mile* break the crusts of dirt around the corners of their mouths. They .whistle and wise crack—real American style. '"Hey, a women! And she's a woman! And she's'white, too." "Say, baby, what were you doing up there, anyway? Trying to get killed or something?" •She yells back, and then: f "Hey, what the hell kind of an • rmy is this getting to be? Do we get women, too?" 1 r "Hey, baby, wanta share my dinner, with me?" calls another, wav- trur • can of beans. "Hey, baby, what's it like up forward?" 8h» wants to get out and talk lo them. She wants so much to march with them. She wants to do something to help lighten their burdens. But »he can't. She just laughs »t their jokes^ wise cracks back at them, hopes they don't see the tears streaming down her face, and feels truly young again.

(If,— Five top labor leaders Indicated today labor is baffled, but not discouraged, by the reverses some of its candidates suffered in the Sjov. 1 election. Their views were published in a copyrighted article In the magazine U. S. News and World Report. William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, was quoted as saying he suspects some "undercover influence" played a part In the big winning majority piled up by Senator Taft (R-Ohio), who had been tht No. 1 target of most labor unions in the election campaign. Green conceded Tafl must have received "the support of a substantial percentage of the workers In Ohio." dfe said the AFT, Is trying to find out why. The magazine quoted George M. Harrison, president of the AFL Railway Clerks Union, a s saying he believes Taft won with "the support of a powerful coalition of "Democratic reactionaries and the Republican crowd, pulling together." Harrison contended Ohio's Democratic Governor Frank. J. Lausche "never did do anything "for Ferguson (Democratic Senatorial Nominee Joseph T. Ferguson), and I think Lausche and his political machine went down the line for Taft." Jack Kroll. director of the CIO Political Action Committee, was quoted as holding that many of .he Republican voters, 'including Taft, "were Just as much mystified as we were" by the size of the Republican margins. Kroll said he thought the vigor of labor's efforts to get out a big vote for its candidates caused the Republicans to redouble their efforts, and (hat this was one o[ many factors in the results. Joseph D. Kccnan. director of Labor's League for Political Education (AFL). said developments in the Korean War caused an eleventh hours swing to the Republicans that "made a hell of a difference." "I think there has been some pretty clear evidence of the fact that there was a change from Wednesday until Sunday in some of those marginal areas, especially in Utah and in Colorado and In Illinois." the magazine quoted him. James. B. Carey, secretary-treasurer of the CIO. suggested that the Democratic Administration's programs were not "properly defended" and that "the vote was based on a great deal of misinformation."
