C. Bohack Co., Inc. This new de partment occupies 45,000 square feet of space in the Bohack Terminal at Bohack Square, Brook lyn,- and was inspected yesterday by food editors and com mentators of the press, raaio and television. Months of research and plan-. ning preceded the construction of this department equipped to service 265 Bohack markets with fresh dairy products, and replacing the former dairy di vision which had been out grown, due to increased dairy product sales. Not only is the candling proc ess done in lighted, air-conditioned space, but the entire department is laid out to provide the maximum in pleasant working conditions and the most efficient operation for the handling of butter, eggs, cheese and other items handled by the dairy division, from the time supplies are delivered by truck, processed and stored for distribution to the various stores. Egg and Eye Eggs are candled by skilled personnel who examine each egg by holding' it between the eye and a bright light (the rea son for the room's general sub dued lighting). Size and plac ing of yolk, size and shape of the air pocket, blood spots, or cracks may be detected instant ly and affect the grading of the eggs. More than 5,000,000 indi vidual eggs were candled by these experts last year. Detect ing possible defects in the eggs is one of the most important functions of the dairy department. The new egg candling equiprrient is the first of its kind, a product of the Self-Locking Carton Co. Conveyor belts in this and other . sections eliminate many manual operations. Girls are em ployed for the sedentary job of sorting the eggs, while men cart more easily handle the 60 pound blocks of butter in that section of the department where this is processed. No longer is the butter tub in evi dence. The blocks are delivered in corrugated cartons and are placed in the butter storage at 45 degrees F to ready it for cut ting and packing. One machine has the capacity of cutting blocks and wrapping in pound units at the rate of 65 pounds per minute. Another machine cuts and wraps quarter pound prints and packages four to the pound at the rate of 75 pounds every two minutes. There is an almost complete turnover of supplies in 24 hours in these two departments. Rapid turnover is the case in re gard to the large selection of cheese, as well. Lard, bacon and margarine are delivered by truck and by freight to a spur track along side the building. In, the temperature controlled selection "rooms, orders are made up for the individual stores, and all dairy products Continued on Following Page Brooklyn Juniors Season With Party Also seen were Mrs. Richard B.

At a press con ference held at the Waldorf-Astoria, it was revealed that some thing new has been added to inducements to enlist. Col. Mary A. Hallaren, director of the WAC announced a new officer specialist program for women between the ages of 21 and 39, with grades from second lieutenant to captain inclusive. To qualify, women must hold a baccalaureate degree and have had experience in teaching, business, recreation, personnel administration, advertising or other fields of work which require leadership. The WAC also now has a college graduates in the regular Army. College women who qualify, are appointed in the Reserve and will have six months training at Fort Lee, Va., as Reserve Officers. "The Women's Army Corps needs 30,000 enlistments," said Col. Hallaren. "We have had no campaign since 194s and there are not enough women left in service since World War II. We are not only looking for loaders, we also want the young women graduating from High School. ' "This is no longer 'The Pow-i I 111. IIMWII II I IMMWHHMWMWH TOP BRASS SPEAKERS Col. Mary A.

From her office with Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. in Boston, Mrs. Willoughby sends the following precautions as . part of the mutual insurance pre - ventive safety program: pull, push -or boost whenever possible. Make several small, easily carried "packages rather than one large cumbersome bundle. An extra trip from the car to the water's edga or under a tree is worth the time compared to der Puff Army," commented Col. Hallaren, pointing out that service women are engaged in highly skilled branches of the services. Twenty percent of the present force of women in military service is now serving overseas, she revealed. They are in Europe, the Carribean and the Far East. Service pay for enlistees,' she stated, ranged from ' $75 per; month to a maximum of $198 with maintenance, clothing, medical and dental care. "And the clothes are designed by Hattie Carnegie," concluded Col. Hallaren. New uniforms, hv Hattie Car negie, were modeled for the press. Col. Geraldine P.

"GOING PLACES?" PHONE ' MA. 4-6200 FOR IDEAS MON., FRI.-9 A.M.-5 P.M. Warn J4aworlk DEAR MARY HAWORTH I have been married for a quarter of a century and have loved my husband dearly, elthough I've always felt that he wasn't really happy. Just this last year I have discovered that he has been living in a dream all these years, thinking of his teen-age sweet heartbut in all this time never seeing her, or hear ing from her, until last year. when he made two trips to see her, a. cross-country journey of several hundred miles. He found that she is married, but also unhappy with her partner. I became aware that they were corresponding, but said nothing about it until recently, when 1 fplt I could bear it no longer and frankly told him that we would have to go our separate ways. I am middle-aged and self-supporting and very active for my age. I am considered a pleasant person and make friends easily. Our only child is away from home, so therefore it seemed to me that we should separate and leave him to his own interests. Jealousy Weigh I went away for a week and my absence seemed to bring George to his senses, and for two weeks he talked continually of his mistake and about his love for me. He said he could never live without me, which I dq believe is true. I do really believe he has always loved me but did not know it. My problem is what should I do, and how should I act around him? Should 1 refrain from showing any jealousy, or Living in Brooklyn mm Jaunt Along The Waterfront By MARGARET MARA Regular travelers to the West Indies on the Bull Lines got quite accustomed to the personnel at the old pier at the foot of Atlantic Ave. The line moved some months ago and I dropped in for a visit at the new location recently. The ships now sail from the company's gigantic pier at the foot of 20th St., just off 3d Ave. First I spotted that gallant veteran traffic officer, John Byrne, who also has moved from his old pier post on Atlantic Ave. Mr. Byrne, a policeman for 30 years, has been a traffic man for 28 years and is known to thousands of truck drivers who truck freight to the docks. There has been no change in the top supervisors of the pier. George L. Liesegang, the superintendent, 60 years in shipping, is still in charge. Pa'st the middle 70s, Mr. Leisegang has been with the Bull Lines for 56 years. He is a slight, white-haired man: quite a dandy in dress, quick in speech and brisk in manner. Three of his sons are associated with him on the job. I recall the first time I Summer, in the old office on see me because at the moment! he was draped in a barber's sheet, tltlted back in an old office chair. A barber had just applied a full layer of lather preparatory to shaving him. That gives you an idea' of how busy this 76-year-old man is. "On the jump all the time," they say about him down at the pier. Biggest, Bestest The Bull Line piers are said to be the biggest in the country. It is worth a trip to see them. They are 750 feet long and cover more than 22 acres. The roadway leading to the piers is 76 feet wide and some 600 trucks line up there throughout the day. Lunch accommodations are poor in the vicinity, so mobile lunch wagons serve the new piers. On 20th St., a makeshift lunch counter is operated from an old Navy bus that has been painted silver. There are innumerable signs on the bus. Across the rear some comedian wrote "To the Races," on the left, and "To St.. Peter," on the right. The Cherry Blossoms Brooklyn's annual pink idyl St. Gregory's School To Benefit by Card Party A meeting was held in St. Gregory's School Hall last week to further plans for a card party to be held on May 25 at the school. The proceeds will go to the school fund. Mrs. Harriet Webb, Mrs. Emma Muller and Mrs. Catherine Linane are the chairmen. Attending the meeting were Mrs. Rita McGratty, Mrs. Marion Adams, Mrs. John McNally, Mrs. Bernadette O'Meara, Mrs. Joseph Brancaccio, Mrs. Agnes Quann, Mrs. Margaret Rice, Mrs. Betty Ryan, Mrs. John Boyle, Mrs. William Wilson Jr., Mrs. Catherine Crowley, Mrs. Catherine Broderick, Mrs. Mary lonery, Mrs. Irene Donohue Mrs. Malvina Donovan, Mrs. men of special prizes.

It was last the Atlantic Ave. pier. He didn't the blooming of the Japanese cherry trees in the Botanic Garden, Eastern Parkway, was in full color on Sunday. This week the petals may fall quickly due to the brisk breeze, so perhaps a warning to make haste will spare you regrets later. Camera fans with color films were almost as numerous as the petals littering Cherry Walk. Some acute fans snapped pictures of two women dressed in flowing silk, a la Madame Pandit against the background of cherry trees. The Oriental Garden (known as the Japanese Garden prior to World War II) is open again. It is the most beautiful section of the Botanic Garden; pagodas, terraced waterfalls over rocks and the lake stocked with gold and green fish. The footpath is at the lake edge, a delightful tour for the saunterer. One to a Customer A Court St. cafeteria has a sign in the window that reads: PRUNE 10c The buying power of the nickel has vanished and now there goes the dime! iFontbonne Auxiliary , Completes Party Plans Mrs. John J. Gordon, chairman of the bridge, tea and fashion show of Fontbonne Hall Auxiliary, which will be held on Saturday afternoon at the school, 9901 Shore Road, has completed the final plans for the event. A fashion show will be presented by Martin's of Brooklyn. Mrs. Edward Whitty and Mrs. Gerard McLeer are the co-chairmen. Mrs. Gustave Meyer Kaden, Mrs. John C. Driscoll, Mrs. Na-tale A.

I feel that the correspondence should cease, but I hesitate to speak of it. I want his love more than anything in this world. V. A. What's the Story? EAR V. A. There seems to be an untold tragedy here. What is the story you are withholding? I gather your husband is a non-aggressive man who, was roped or lured into marriage without his heart being in it. And your references to your personality, in middle age, indicate that you are a canny, self-confident, go-getter type when you are functioning at par. In any case, I get the impression that you haven't loved him so-much as you've wanted to possess him. And I very much doubt that you honestly intended to separate. Attitude Insensllive Insidiously and indirectly you were fighting his feeling for the other woman, you weren't manifesting true independence nor moving to set him free, when you took action. The fact that George soon prostrated himself, to talk incessantly about his mistake and his love for you, doesn't' solve anything, however. You are just where you were before. You say you want your husband's love more than anything in life. Self-centered maneuvers and demands will never achieve your heart's desire, lt is axiomatic that love begets love, and that it is more blessed to give love than to receive it. You have your husband's company on an enduring basis, apparently, so employ the arrangement to become greatly aware of him uncritically, in hope of understanding and just ignore the correspondence. It won't matter in the grand perspective, if you are more concerned to love than to possess him. M. H.
