'Cuyler Phone 600 overstaying their leave in Manchuria. But in making this complaint, thf Chinese don't mention that they twice asked the Rusians to stay on beyond the agreed-upon date of departure. They asked this because nvfii with American help they were not able to get their own nationalist armies into Manchuria past the dissident communists who blocked their way and with whom they had not yet reached a working agreement on national unity. In effect, they were r.sking the Russians to hang around and save Manclniria for them from the communists. Comes now the ticklist question— WIVP tho Russians been carrying off industrial and other equipment from Manchuria? The Chinese hint v.trnnRly that they have, but until they mnko official charges their liitfi cau have no more force than hints. In any case it's obvious that the Russians took their last-minute swipe ;it the powerful Japanese rfwantuiif rxrmy in Manchuria with !hn greatest gusto.

Here still remain great remnants of some of the linest palaces and mosques ever built in the orient, and in the center of this welter'of dead ambitions and outworn empires liar, been reared the new capital of modern India. Old Delhi is a^e old India. New Delhi is an asphiteJt's dream of what, mnv India may become. Cue city is Huck Finn. The other is little Lord Fauntleroy. It is recorded that the late "Tiger of France," Georges Clemenceau, niter being shown the unhappy shotgun wedding of Greek classical and Mogul Indian architecture in which India's seat of government is Dr. George Snell Dentist Office over 1st National Bank Phone 1482 for appointment imprisoned is stone, gave this gallic Verdict: "Well at least they should make ;>ome of the most interesting ruins in antiquity." Even the "Red Fort," or "Lai Kila." still shows vestiges of the grandeur that made it the most magnificent palace in the far east It had silver ceilings, rare gardens unrivaled t'ountainsm Shah Jahan "Flame of the Faith,'' finished it it Io48 and was deposed soon afterward by his sou, who improved the real estate. Over the entrance to his jewe studded "diwanikas" or hall of private audience was poetic Persian inscription: "If there be a paradise on earth "Oh it is here, it is here, it is here." More of a braggart with less reason Was Chandra, Hindu ruler of the fourth century, who celebrated his conquests by erecting a pure iron pillar that was great shakes in his day but which could be turned ou any afternoon by an arsenal manu facUirlng 16-imh nayal guns. The inscription listing his many feats offhandedly refers to Chandra ns "he by the jreezes of whose pro wess tho southern ocean is evei still perfumed." The old man really must have hac his wind up the day he dictated tha one to his court stenographer. 4* WAITER ON HORSEBACK In the days of the Roman Em' pire, an archdapifer was, a specia 'officer who, at coronations, carriet the first dish of meat to' the table on horseback. * * A Message from O- ' •' " :; President Truman It is of the utmost importance that the American people understand the stulus and significance of our new Regular Army. It will be llie duty of this volunteer Army lo help protect the freedoms and maintain ihc peace we have won at so great, a cost. Atomic power has increased rather lliun decreased llie necessity for our preparation, both in manpower and material. In the coming atomic age, ihe United Slates must maintain its military strength — to insure our national security and to promote world order. . Such grave responsibilities obviously cannot be met by anything less than the highest caliber of men. For this reason, I asked Congress for legislation to increase the opportunities of the soldier in the Regular Army. This legislation has been passed and signed by me, and is now in effect. In serving his country, a man can now get good pay, education, travel and security — with family allowances for his dependents and a new 20-year retirement plan that compares with or excels anything in American industry. Those, and the inuiiy other advantages of the new Kes'ular Army, should he made known I'o all our service men and'their families. " The Army lias i/nilmrki-.rl upon a worldwide campaign lo enlist enough men so that, in demobilizing, we shall nol strip our services below the peacetime need. ' It is imperative thut public support be given to this program. We liuist repia' >. as soon Us possible men r/ho have served long ;md arduously, and v/.ho wish to return to civil lile. We must also build ah Army of volunteers adequate to all our requirenuuils — ul home and abroad—until the long-range peace terms and military policies are worked out. I hope that'every individual and gi'uiip will give earnest and enthusiastic co-operation to this great effort to rebuild our Regular Army. The success of this campaign is vital to the performance of our tremendous task of securing the peace. f" „' -fr tv >" rj '4 "-.--& ^'". ^ x <•-, ^ ** ,f Pit ^ * r „ ^^ ' ^ '< ^ •Hrrf^^W 4flll^cl«lnl3at.^« gHBA^fta**. ^iH -Li 1* ' Feb. 26.-</P}— ohnny Alltel 'tJotorth, Wichita %lls dtfKrii --'cftrietefitor, was felfe- —At a ealled meeting of the Ameri Legion WtiHdifig; committee on esdey- nfgfit <sf last weefc, it «as unanimously decided tb abahdon plan to purchase the south Ward chart buildmt for the purpose of converting it ihtS an American Legion home. > "The decision to abahdon the )lan : was due entirely tb the opposition evidenced by personal con- act of those solicited for funds for he purpose of either erecting a new juilding or purchasing the South Ward building," a spokesman of the Building committee slated.
