It must be so used, and it is so powerful an instrument it can, if properly controlled, contribute to the success of the United Nations organization. "But un\il the UNO is a much more seasoned and stable body, we can not afford to entrust in its hands this most terrible of till weapons invented by man." Mahon expressed kern interest in the forthcoming atomic bombins tests on obsolete vessels out in ;hn Pacific. He declared the test is "highly desirable" and added: ; "It may revolutionise our conrcnl of what should comprise a-navy and naval strategy. In fact, it has revolutionized our whole concept of war , . . period." It was only upon the recent dra.h bf Rep. Btlell Snyder (D-Pai that I By IIAl, BOTLF ; CAIRO.

One of those fugitives from her stove Is Mrs. Fred Krieg, wife of a foreign correspondent of the Associated Press, stationed here. Mar.iorie was raised in Topeka, Kan., where men are men and women cook their apple pics for them. Mohamad is the major domo for the Kriegs. He cooks, cleans, washes dishes, buys their food and gets their laundry done—all for about $32 a month. "We didn't set out to hire him," said Marjorie. "he just came with the apartment. You don't usually hire your servants here. They already belong to B flat when you move in and you just inherit them." Somewhat depressing to Ameri:an women here is the average Sofragi's ability to make housekeeping look as pRsy as most hu.rtMnds think it really is. Mohamed has the Krieg apartment neat is « pin before break- fif=i and he can whip up a dinner of several course;; on two small, one-burned icersosene pressure stoves.

His request was not only approved but he was encouraged to disclose facls not previously made public. /Excerpts from Mahon's remarks on the house floor follow: "Mr Snyder was at hi.s best in handling a project about which nothing was ever said on this floor, the atomic-bomb project—that rush- hush project of the days of the \v:r j prior to the drocping of the bomb on that Ausust day of 1945. "Many months and years before that bomb was dropped General Marshall CGeorge Marshall, retired army chief of sta f f> rnmc to the committee, and behind closed doors, impressed the members of the subcommittee with the necessity of money for this project. He received the cooperation of the committee from year to year, and every proper effort was made to disguise the funds that were placed in the hill for' the atomic-bomb project. The .success of our committee in keeping the secret has become historic. For that much credit is due Speaker Sam Rayburn. Mr. Snyder and the members of our subcommittee. | "On May 27. 19*5. the clerk of the ! committee, Mr. John Piu;h. called | me on the telephone and lie said: '• 'Mr. Mahon, can you be over at j Chairman Cannon's (Ren, Cnnnon j Bf Missouri is head of the full ap- ; propriations committee) office promptly at 12 o'clock?'

Texas Grapefruit Prices Rise With Increased Demand McALLEN, March 12 —OP)— Demands for the remainder of the Rio Grande Valley's big grapefruit crop have begun to rise and prices are going along with them. The increase came on the heels of strike settlements which reopened two Houston can fabricating firms and again gave Valley citrus juice canning plants a heavy supply of containers. Chief effect of the new competition for fruit was to raise, in some instances, the price of juice fruit to $25 per ton, a $5 increase. The $20 base for juice fruit has been paid throughout the current season under a voluntary move by canners to keep the price at least to that level. Under federal regulations the grapefruit shipping season can last into June this year but there are few indications now that any considerable volume of fruit will be left by that time. There is no time limit on oranges as has been the case in past years. Knowledge that the season will last a long time has • made growers reluctant in some cases to sell their fruit at prices other than Lop grade. Despite the good demand for fruit, both grapefruit and oranges, prices have not quilc come up to the new ceiling increases which Liquid — Tablets — Salve Noge Drop* Used J ~ 1 Alii by millions for years , 1'1'J Works Great-works last Conlion- U-^o only as dirocl«?d were allowed dutofii&Mcftlly by the OPA on March f.
