B7 IKEZ ROB'3 NEW YORK— (INS<—I can remember way, way back, say fifteen year ago, when the infallible signs of Spring were a crocus, a pearly enow-drop, a handful of pussy willows and the first robin. One day The whole world quickens its tempo as the days lengthen and the comrades are no exception. They, toe, harken to the strains of "Sacre Du Printemps" and from behind the Iron Curtain comes word of ominous late in February the air and heigluened acUvlty at tne O i d suddenly felt soft, there was warmth ,„„„„,,,„„ oito r , f fhp net-man ttn-/?. in the sun, and you realized that it wasn't necessary to turn'on the electric lights until 5:30 p. m. That the day the boss's secretary rushed the aeason and appeared In a straw *ailor with a nose veil. "The hounds of Spring on Winter's traces," you quoted the poet *nd then for good measure added "nice doggie!" A man with a bit of ground to plant could lose himself in the seed catalogues, those ultimate retreats from reality, and a woman could begin to sew herself something special for Easter. But thanks to science and this great technical age in which we live, man is no longer dependent upon such uncertain and irresponsible signs and portents to tell him that the vernal equinox is just around the corner. The sure sign of the return of Joyous Spring, the world's rebirth, is the vernal announcement that the nuclear fission professors, who have been locked up in their laboratories •11 winter, may be ready this spring to test the H-Bornb at Eniwetok. And If the H-Bomb isn't cookin' In tulip time, then there will certainly be new atom goodies to test way out yonder in the Pacific. "New *tom tests coming in '52," reads to- day'i headlines. "Spring held likely tiftie for try-out of weapons." "The Atomic Energy Commission and the Department of Defense announced jointly today that preparations are being made for a new •eriea of atomic weapons tests," reads the body of the story. Once upon a time, Spring was the mating season of the birds and the bees; now it is the mating season of a couple of chunks of Plutonium and a mess of neutrons. Once the season was the time of chain reaction in the old Adam: now in the old atoms. With February on the wane and the sap beginning to perk in man; beast and forsythia, the British also know it is time to celebrate the rites of Spring. John Bull has just announced that he is about ready to test hl« first atomic weapon, with Australia as the proving ground. launching site of the German Buzz Bombs (the V-l and V-2 rockets), now in the Russian zone These rumors imply that the Russky scientists have not been making fudge while holed up in their laboratories during the winter solstice, and that whatever they test on the launching platforms this spring will not in any way tend to lessen your and my headache. And now as winter relaxes its icy grip on the world, members of the U. S. Air Pnrre in Korea are re porting the appearance at 20,000 feet of flying discs or globes, orange in color and wreathed in bluish flames. As the earth renews itself, the inference is that the U.S.S.R. is letting fly with some strange and diabolic saucer, although word from the Pentagon says "the Air Force still does not believe In flying discs." But flying saucers have replaced the daffodil and the willow whistle as the harbingers of spring. Down around Norfolk, Virginia, the people who used to hunt for the first crocus aiow have their eyes on the heavens and have already reported the appearance of a "brilliant object hurtling through the sky," followed by an explosion. Spring is bustin 1 out »11 over, and in another year or so—if technological progress continues—may succeed in bustin' the whole world asunder, and solving, once and for all, the problem of spring cleaning.

Wives Of 'Elderly* Stars Hit Italian Actress For Remarks HOLLYWOOD — (/P) — An Italian film beauty's remark that some Hollywood actors are too old to pitch convincing woo drew snickers and snorts from the local movie colony. "It's ridiculous to see a man old enough to be your grandfather play- Ing an ardent lover," Actress Sylvana Pampanini told an interviewer in Rome. She named Clark Gable, Charles Boyer, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tacy, Paul Muni and Ronald Colman as examples who, 1 "stripped of their movie glamor, would seem pitiful in the arms of a woman." Said Miss Pampanini: "Hollywood needs a bunch of new lovers—young and virile, in the prime of their youth, not men who were born in the last century." She added with a shudder, "It's indecent being kissed by an old man." Clark Gable thought Miss Pam- paninl's views "enormously funny," but wouldn't comment saying: "I'm not going to get mixed up in THAT." Mrs. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall. whose husband was yachting yesterday, rose to the defense of local males. 'Seme of these girls will do anything for publicity," she said. "I think there's life In the old boys yet xxx after all it took them years to know what they were doing, and now that they know it, we women should be thankful." Mrs. Charles Boyer, who answered the phone while her husband was showering, sflld she was "quit* nauseated" by Miss Pampaninl's remarks, adding: "She seems to be quite young and a beginner. She's quite welcome to her opinion." After checking with Boyer, she said "he thinks the same." Mrs. Spencer Tracy said she didn't think her husband would comment. 'I think it's pretty silly. As a matter of fact there are quite a number of young girls who rather like older men," she said. Mrs. Colman wouldn't bother her husband either. She said: "Whoever this Miss Pumpernickel of 1952 Is. if she wants the bobby-soxers I'd say let her have them."

Heavy clouds and snow grounded most Allied warplanes. Only a few fighter bombers went out on rail cutting missions. ' Fifth Air Force planes flew only 180 sorties Monday, far under the daily average. South Korean and American Mustang pilots and Marine Corsair pilots cut North Korean rail lines at 13 places. Reports from scattered points along the 155-mile front indicated the usual pattern of recent fighting — probes, patrols and a few brief clashes. Far East Air Forces reported its pilots destroyed about 200 supply trucks in widespread attacks Sunday. That was the highest number in several months. Atom Spies Doomed NEW YORK — (ff>) — The U. S.

MARTIN Associated Press Firm Writer WASHINGTON—(/P)—Americans i are watching their waistlines soj closely that they are forcing changes in the nation's food production pattern. The Agriculture Department points out that the slimming diets require the dieters to eat less fat and starches. So people are eating less bread, fewer potatoes, less butter and other fat-type spreads, such as cheese preparations, jelly, jam, honey and molasses. Butter consumption, for example, has dropped off about 50 per cent in the past 15 years. Some persons say this has been caused by high butter prices. But the department says the retail price of butter has risen no more than have prices of food in general, The increased use of margarine doesn't change the general picture, either. People ate, on an average. 13 pounds of butter and margarine each year before the last war. Now they eat only IBMi pounds of the two spreads. The consumption of potatoes averages about 104 pounds a year for each person, compared with 131 pounds ten years ago. Sweet potato consumption has dropped from an annual, average of 22 to 10 pounds. Average consumption of flour Is 135 pounds a year, compared with 162 before World War II. Use of com meal has declined from a prewar average of 23 pounds to 13. On the other hand, people are eating more meat, particularly lean types, more eggs, chickens, turkey, fluid milk, canned and processed fruits and vegetables. Officials say the trend away from fats te reflected in current prices of hogs and pork. Prices being paid farmers for hogs are much lower than those being paid for beef cattle and lambs. Generally speaking, there is less fat on beef and lamb cuts than on pork. Consequently, beef and lamb enjoy a greater consumer preference —a fact that shows up in the willingness of many consumers to pay more for these meats than for pork. These changes in consumer eating habits force adjustments in farm production. Farmers plan, for example, to produce fewer hogs this year than last. It has been necessary for producers to grow fewer potatoes. Because butter consump- MOSCOW — (/P) — In the Soviet Union the government runs the cosmetics industry, like all others.
