Keep me from getting talkative, and particulRrly from the fatal habit of thinking I must Hay something on every subject and occasion. Release me from craving to try to straighten out everybody's affairs. Keep my mind free from the recital of endless details — give me wings to got to the point. I ask for grace enough to lisilcn to the tales of other's pains. Help me to endure them with patience. But seal my lips on my own aches and pains —• they are increasing and my love of rehearsing them is In-coming sweeter as the years go by. Teach me (he glorious lesson that occasionally it is possible that I may be mistaken. Keep me reasonably sweet; I do not want to be a saint — some of them are HO hard to live with — but a sour old person is one of the crowning works of the devil. Make me thoughtful, but not moody; helpful but not bossy. With my vast store of wisdom, it seems a pity not to use it all — but Thou knowest, Lord, that I want a few friends at the end. Job Needs to Be Filled In hiring a new chief of police for Garden City, comissionera face a tough task. Ideally, the job needs a capable administrator, competent lawman, public relations director and counselor all rolled into one, neat package. But it would be a rare find to locate a man with aid four qualifications. However, whomever is hired for the job will have a head start when he arrives. Thanks to a capable assistant chief, who has been handling the duties as head of the department, and his dedicated force of officers and patrolmen, the new chief will find thing's in good shape .at the start. While we would consider a knowledge of police work ami leadership abilities as the prime prerequisites, there's also some value in hiring a man who can handle an often critical and sometimes troublesome public in an understanding manner. Due to the uncertainty of the health of former Chief Gerald Murray, who resigned earlier this month, the police chief's chair hns been vacant longer than it should have been. But now that Murray's resignation has made the situation definite, a new chief should be hired as soon as possible. While it's necessary to hire the right man, it's also important to get the job filled without further delay. We hope and trust that our city administration is putting forth every effort to do so. Hal Boyle Says: Tired Male Has Envy of Woman NEW YORK (AP) — The thing that puzzles men most about women is that they enjoy being women. Now and then a man, worn out with the office politics of earning a living, lias a kind of masculine envy of his wife. "You got it made, baby," he tells her, "When you get tired of pushing buttons on all these modern labor-saving devices, you can lie down on the couch and rest your worn finger. "If you don't want to dust a table now, you can dust it later. If you don't feel like sending out tho laundry today, you can send it out tomorrow. "Boy, if I ever get (lie chance to be born again, I think I'd choose to be born a woman." Actually, however, that is the last tiling on earth he'd choose to bo. A lion? Maybe. An ele- pliant? Perhaps. But a woman? Never, never, never! Now and then I discuss this subject with my wife. "Tell the truth, Francos," 1 say to her. "If you bad it to do nil over jigain, wouldn't you rather be a man'"' "No indeed." "Why?" "Because it's more fun being a woman. 1 ' Fun? For the life of me 1 can't figure it out. Whore's tho fun? Admittedly, a man's life is full of woo. Kvery morning he ha s to shave and then decide which sock to put on first—and what necktie to wear. But after ho ^ets these major decisions out of the way the rest of hi s day is fairly clear sailing. He is no longer much of a bother to himself. Hut a woman is a perpetual nuisance to herself all the hours sho is awake. She is never quite right. She has to endlessly adjust herself. She is never at peace. She Is always straightening the scam s of he r stockings, tugging at her girdle, putting on lipstick, adjusting her hair, doing her fingernails, smoothing her dress, clipping her e'yebrows, patting her chins to firm them, and anointing herself with lotions. At least 50 times a day she has to look into a mirror to be sure she is still there—and pretend to be glad at what she see s therein. Women have a lot of oilier problems. They can't scratch themselves in public. They have to be careful about crossing their legs. But the worst of all ordeals about being a woman, to me at least, would be having to eat tuna salad for lunch day after day. But the girls seem to thritx 1 on it. "Just toll me one thing" 1 ask Francos. "What real joy could Frances. "What real .jiiy could there possibly be in being a woman?" "You'll never know," she says Miuigly.

Under a blazing sun Khrushchev stopped to thank a 500- man Soviet team for their help in clearing the rubble. H e also talked with survivors of the disaster which killed more than 1,000 persons and turned Skopje into a ghost city. President Tito, his wife and Mrs. Khrushchev accompanied the Soviet leader on the flight from Belgrade to th e devastated Macedonian capital. Skopje was the first stop after Belgrade on Khrushchev's 15-day "working v acation" in Yugoslavia. He arrived in the country two days ago. Th« Soviet premier'* visit came two weeks after U.S. Secretary of. Agriculture 0 r v 111 e Freeman toured Skopje. The Soviet Union sent 500 men to Skopje on Aiug. 6, 10 days after a full American military field hospital was airlifted from West Germany to help treat the quake victims. Secretary Freeman offered President Tito $50 million in U.S. aid for the stricken city. In accepting, Tito expressed warm appreciation to President 'Kenneday and the people of the United States.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: In thli, his third report on 'his Interview with Premier Khrushchev, Drew Pearson gives Khrushchev's opinions in his own words on China *nd on steps by which U.S.-Soviet relations may be improved.) GAGRA, GEORGIA U.S.S.R.— Chairman Khrushchev was extremely frank in this second time I've interviewed him on the shore of the Black Sea except on one point — Red China. Here he was humorous but cagey. I opened the subject by asking whether China, now out from under the wing of the Soviet, might cause world trouble. "Now you ar c trying to make me speak for the Chinese," Khrushchev replied. "1 am not instructed to speak for the Chinese but if I am to express my own personal view, I don't expect they will start anything. The Chinese believe in peace and coexistence. They are saying so and we believe them." Mrs. Agnes Meyer, who participated in the interview, then asked whether the growing trust between the United States and the Soviet Union would help prevent the Chinese from causing trouble, to \\11iich Khrushchev replied, "I should say the Chinese people and government want peace. But, of course, bet- er relations between the USA and the USSR will better stabilize the world situation. I don't mean," Khrushchev added, "an American-Soviet understanding at the expense of a third party, but one from which all nations would gain.' 1 "But," 1 asked Khrushchev, "wasn't one of the quarrels between China and the Soviet the fact that China did not believe in coexistence?" "Let us agree on one thing," Mr. K. shot back, "put the responsibility for negotiating with China on our shoulders not on yours!" That ended that. When I interviewed Khrushchev two years ago, we discussed the difficulty of getting bettor relations between the United Sates and Russia unless there was more mutual trust. This brought a lot of criticism from right-wingers in the United States, who asserted mutual trust was impossible, but 1 am still convinced it is tho most important problem facing the two coun- trios and I askotl C'hrushchev how it could improve mutual trust. Ho enumerated the following points: "The major question is disarmament, but it js difficult to approach now, so we should take up some other matters first. The test ban treaty, while not complotiv, has settled the heart of of the problem — the poisoning of the atmosphere. 'Tlu> second is a nona^gres- sion pact. "The third is the German question. If We solve it, it will clear tho atmosphere right away. Then we will be in a position to talk about a reduction in armed forces in Germany. This is a matter on which 1 believe we can agree. "Then there is the freezing of budgets to stop the arms race. "Finally, we believe it is possible to preclmde a surprise attack. What does this mean? It means that w e would deploy con- trol groups on the territory of each side — at major railway junctions, airports,, and seaports. The groups would see to it that there were no movement of troops for surprise attack and this in turn would lead to 'greater confidence. "After that we could raise the question of withdrawing troops back to their original frontiers, which in turn could lead to a dis- ment." "What is the difference between a surprise attack and inspection to check on underground nuclear tests?" I asked. "The difference," Khrushchev replied, "is that inspectors for underground tests would cover great areas while inspectors for a surprise attack would be stationed at key places to see whether troops are moved. They would not roam around the country because if they left their specific move while they were away." Khrushchev also talked briefly but positively about the prob- lt-m of convincing people of the need for trust: "To convince people, It Is sometimes necessary to ask: Who is doing the convincing — and, do they want to be convinced? Do they realize that in the next war the rich and the poor will require the same coffin?" My personal conclusions regarding Khrushchev's current outlook on life, war and the U.S.A. will be reported in an early column. Mam Picked Wrong # Automobile to Steal DENVER, Colo. (AP)—George Eugene Bueno, 17, of Pueblo, Colo., was indicted Thursday on an FBI complaint charging theft of federal property. The FBI said that Bueno broke Into a downtown Pueblo 'garage Sunday night and stole a car. Bueno should have picked an- othe car. This one belonged to the FBI. -Whether buying or selling, use "Megram Want Ad«i i6la.+t *^)i UNDER A heading: "For Lazy Days,*' there was this little recipe for dessert: "Fill packaged sponge cake shells with vanilla ice cream, top with cranberry sauce, beat until saucy, and add a dollop of whipped cream." Well, we don't know what you serve for dessert at your house on your "lazy days", but we kind of stick to a can of peaches or a plate of store cookies. The day we fill shells, beat sauce and add dollops falls into the category of extra-special occasions. * * * THE HIGH school class of 1943 of Abilene has a suggestion for next year's twentieth-reunioning ?roup : Hire a dance band that'll play softly, so that the old grads can visit more and dance less. Marge (Mrs. Leon) Ramsey of this town attended the 1943 Abilene reunion last week. It was an affair of several days duration. Recent reunion planners in this town would be impressed with the updated annual distributed to the class members. It included pictures (from 1943) alongside current snapshots and information of each classmate. * * * MARKET RESEARCHERS have come up with some automatic washer statistics that clearly show our washer is in an above-average range — the figures say an average machine does only 7.1 loads of clothes p«r week! Counting $225 as the approximate original washer cost and allowing $52 for service and repair in a 10-year period, the researchers deduced that ift costs about 14 cents to do a load of clothes.
