Then W-4CIM switched over to a ;elephone "patch" (in ham language, a patch is a telephone hookup to a shortwave radio transmitter) and out of the loudspeaker came the voice of Buckshorn's old love. "I wish you could see me," said Edna. "I'm sitting here in my red Jajamas and even though I'm not on my knees, I'm asking you to marry me again." "By golly, you're simply a good little woman," answered Buckshorn, 'We tried it back in 1918 and it didn't work so well, but we'll make t for keeps this time." Firm, safe, roomy, comfortable.

New York City By DOROTHY ROE Associated Press Women's Editor If Mom suffers from backache, bad temper and housemaid's kriee, it might be a good idea to send her to an industrial engineer instead of a doctor. .Instead of a tonic, she probably needs a work simplification course. An expert in these matters is Dr. Orpha Mae Thomas, associate professor of home economics at Teachers' College,- Columbia University, who combined household science with engineering for her Ph.D. and now teaches future teachers how to do things the easiest way. Dr. Thomas believes that every household should be organized on an assembly line plan, and demonstrates how it can be done with a list of "ten commandments for housewives": 1—Make a list of your household jobs. Check those most tiring and time consuming and figure out which can be eliminated, rearranged, simplified or combined. For instance, says this expert, new detergents make it possible to eliminate dish-drying. Stainless steel tableware for every day use eliminates silver polishing. Seersucker and terry cloth fabrics cut down ironing. 2—Survey your kitchen- and rearrange it in work centers. You will find you have a mix center, where most of your baking and food prepration is done; a cook center, which is the stove; a cleanup center, -which is the sink u.nit. If you can't move the big equipment, at least move small tools and supplies to the center where they are used. Your electric mixer, bowls, flour, sugar, shortening, spices, mixing spoons .and packaged mixes should be stored at the mix center, preferably next to the refrigerator, where you are in easy reach of milk, butter, eggs and such. Cooking and -baking utensils, of 'course, should be stored in or near the stove. 3—Simplify your work by buying things needing a minimum of care and preparation, such as packaged mixes, frozen foods, plastic place mats, paper .napkins and so on. 4—Combine your jobs by using equipment for mulUple handling, such as trays to carry a number of articles at once, wheel Cables for transferring food and dishes from kitchen to table and back, laundry carts and so on. Oven meals can cut cooking time and effort. 5—Do as much of your work as possible sitting down. Adjustable ironing boards make it possible to sit while you iron. Kitchen counters and work tables should have stools or chairs of proper height. 6—Have the utensils you use at each work center within easy reach. Your knife rack should be on the wall above your cutting board. Store heavy equipment at or near counter height. Saucepans should be hung on hooks above and around the stove. 7—Store electrical equipment at place of use. You don't have to put everything out of sight. Your kitchen is a workshop. 8—Duplicate equipment if you use it in several places. For instance, have a measuring cup at the sink and also one at the mix center. Keep a broom, dustmop and cleaning supplies upstairs as well as down. 9—Do something with both hands at once. Lift muffins from pan two at a time, take two cups at once from rack, if you *re cutting green beans, cut a whole handful on your board, not two or three at a time. ,10—Arrange all your work to progress in one direction—from pan to mix center to stove, with no waste motions. Dishwashing should be arranged on a production line basis, usually from left to right, with counter for stacked dishes, wash sink, rinse sink and drying rack in a compact straight line. Allied Leader (Continued from Page i) minute brush with 50 of the Russian-built jets near the Yalu River boundary between Korea and Manchuria. Red Rail Lines Cut Fifth Air Force planes cut Red rail lines in 86 places Tuesday in their daily attack on Communist supply lines. There was no report of any major action along the ground front.

Couple Wedded For 70 Years, Hubby Refuses To Give Advice WAYNE, W. Va.—(#}—Mrs. Virginia Watts of nearby East Lynn today celebrated 70 years of married life with the man her father said was "no account." Both Mrs. Watts and her husband, Alderson, are 88 years old. It was 70 years ago today that Virginia's father suspected something was up and locked'his daughter in her room. The undaunted young woman slid down a rope of bed 'sheets. She and Alderson traveled by horse to Ironton, O., about 40 miles away, to be married after a marriage license clerk in Catlettsburg, Ky., turned them down , because they were only 18. Virginia's father was so angry that he wouldn't speak to them until the next Christmas. "At Christmas church services," Watts said. "Mr. Ferguson slapped me on the back and invited Virginia and me over to his house for dinner. After that, he said I was the best son-in-law he had." Watts refused to give any advice to young married people. '"They wouldn't listen to it," he said, "so it would be a waste of my time and theirs." Mrs. Watts advised girls planning to be married "to walk out to get married instead of slipping away like I did." In discussing their marriage, Mrs. Watts told her husband "not to let folks laiow how foolish I was then." "You weren't foolish, Virginia," her husband protested. "You know I was the best catch around." The Watts have five sons, two daughters, 16 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and one great- great grandchild. Deficit Likely V To Be Reduced WASHINGTON— (P?) —Some top government experts optimistically predict the federal deficit this year will be about two billion dollars less than President Truman estimated in his annual budget message in January. The President forecast the government would drop $8,200,000,000 in the red by the end of the fiscal year, June 30. With only four more months to go, some authorities figured today the red ink entry actually may be much nearer six billion. A few predicted it will go even below that figure. The difference means a lot, not only to fiscal officials but to the man in the street. The more the government goes into the red and has to borrow to pay its bills, the more it tends to fan inflation and push up prices. Red Official Dies MOSCOW — (If) — N. V.
