MONDAY. JULY 17, IIH-I • JUST PAPER Appart-Tilly it is difficult to convince many people tlml tl'<-'i'<-' is a shortage of paper so serious that every sera]) should he salvaged. -Housewives liavo faitlit'ully and diligently salvaged tin cans. Ijut too many are taking the attitude, "it's .just a scrap of paper. It isn't \vortli saving.'' j\c-cnrclin.m to .Houald M. Xc-lson, chairman uf the \\'ar Production Board.-waste paper is now the nation's number one critical war material. So essential is it that 'the- -Army is preparing to salvage what it can in the combat xones. because there paper cartons and paper wrappings are worth their weight, in gold. One recently returned Marine expressed amazement at the carelessness of • the .AriH'.rican public in not saving all its- waste paper. Jlo said. "In the tunnels, caves and foxholes a flattened carton keeps the dirl from shrapnel-torn sand- bags'from shi.i'ting through the logs. A broken-down carton makes an excellent bed in the mud. 1 ' Fortunately Connecticut lias done better than-some other parts of the country, hut still more -paper must be salvaged. Local authorities stress three important points in connection with paper salvage. Jt' you're planning to.sleep late the day. paper is collected in your community, then put the paper out the night: before. Second, don't neglect to save "mixed" paper consisting of envelopes, shopping bags, cardboard boxes and similar containers. Although plenty ol' newspapers and rnagaxint's are being received, only a relatively small quantity of mixed paper •is he-ing salvaged. Mosl. important of all, salvage authorities are appealing to small storekeepers, a great many of whom are not turning in the large quantity of corrugated bu.vcs and other containers that they receive every day, Xangatnck's next paper salvage collection is listed Cor Monday and Tuesday, Julv '24 and -"j. and il is hoped that 00 totis will he brought in. OLD FRIENDS The visit of Clen. Charles de Gaulle to "Washington has been a pleasant and .doubtless fruitful incident. "Whether .Americans like the general personally or not, they must admin.' his persistence and courage in the face of great obstacles. And in such a visit, nauiraljy old memories are stirred which bring the two nations closer together. Americans recall the help given by France to this country in revolutionary days, and the part it played in establishing our freedom. Jt would be cold and selfish, indeed, if in the present plight of France our people and government should not give the French pco,p!e encouragement and help. And in such an attitude it is impossible to distinguish between He (ianlle and France itself, as some Americans have been disposed to do. For practical purposes Do Gaulle IS France, because lie is at present the only visible and active spokesman of that country. As a result of his visit the two nations, which worked together so iiatu- raliy a century and a 11Jilt' ag'\ may do •so their mutual benefit. The question on which every decision has turned lately, says Anne O'JTare McCormick, is that of America's rotation to the world. Well, Samuel makes a pretty good uriclc. DO YOU REMEMBER?

' ' . was some form. Of...•intestinal infection . was once the great- infant killed in this country.. It. still.-is in 'irmny. parts of /the .world. That it has practically disappeared . hero is tluo to the success of. the campaign for clean ,-• and pasteurized inilk. Infants still, however,-are-subject to a goocl many' forms of intestinal upsets, •usually taking the Conn of diarrhoea;-,less -frequently of cor.stipation;.-And no wonder! The baby conies ^into .tbe world with a brand now set of intestines, but they have never-been tried out. And within a. few days after birth they have.;,lb; digest 'and absorb enough energy to keep that hot little machine 1 going, on high. It is no wonder.'that' this takes considerable' adjustment .in many instances. ' •• .• •In seeking for.causes we will not consider here the'infectious diarrhoeas which-arc due to germs in the milk or food. Those are .simply due to;supreme carelessness and a reminder of the dark ages. Aside from'.,that there are four common causes of infantile intestinal upsets. ....Infantile Intestinal Upsets 1, Overriding, or improper feeding. This is the commonest form and the easiest to recognize' and to correct. It results usually from the natural affectionate desire of the mother to see the baby gets plenty to cat or to indulge it in some way! It responds quickly to a day or two of underfeeding, simply plenty of warm, sterile water If the symptoms arc serious enough. The feeding of pectin agar, or scraped apple is almost specific as a curative agent in most of these cases. " ' • 1, Diarrhoea, due to infection elsewhere.—tonsillitis, 'middle ear Infection, bronchitis or any. general infection may touch-off the baby's sensitivc^bowcts with an ( exlosive diarrhoea, Here the logical and .natural 'treatment is to go after the underlying cause. '...; 3. Mechanicar'causes. Thcse"ai;e. rarer and more .serious. They include all of the structural disorders of the intestinal tract, such disease and tuberculosis. The as congenital dilation, cocliac mother will finally'. 1 recognize that something is fundamentally wrong' because no amount of adjustment or fixing of the -feedings serves to correct the condition. These cases -arc not for amateurs 'or homo treatment. You' need a doctor and a good one. Nutritional or -Mctalxilic Cannes 4. There remains, a group which can bo called the nutriional or metabolic set of. causes. They are . fairly frequent,:.-', not necessarily, serious but very-troublesome. The; great majority 'b'finfants' adjusts themselves to a- -feeding '.existence with no trouble; at .all, considerinp what'a, revolutionary change it is' for the organism: Infant feeding has been brought to such a fine science- that mothers can -be given a sample and streamlined set of instructions which work'like putting gasoline in a new Ford if you can remember back that far—to the days of now Fords, I.mean, But some infants have a diges-. : live system that is intolerant to: starch and some- that is intoleralt to fat and some.have intolerance to lots of things which is gener- WASHINGTON Ky HELEN TCSSAKY (Central Pross Columnist) MAN ABOUT TOWN THIS IS THE "INSIDE" on the demotion of General Miller, who was returned to the O. S. recently, us a Lt. Colonel for allegedly revealing- the invasion date at a London cocktail party.. .Intimates say mat he did not actually reveal the date...That he was also in charge of some canteens in Britain... And that the hostess of the cockUiil party was asked (by him) to arrange a few extra, places where soldiers could relax. . ."How soon?" she inquired'. . ."At once," he replied. .."But," she said, "that isn't so simple. I must have at least one month:". .-."No dice," he persisted. "Many of our men will be coming back sooner than, that —and we must keep them happy" ...That is all his friends- say he said...At the table was an .intelligence officer, who turned in'.a report alleging that he "talked too much" The stories said the woman had complained to Eisenhower. She had nothing to do with it...Miller will' fight it out over here hoping a Senate probe will clear him. Some Light Thoughts For Very Heavy Days Drinking Fountains- Whiskers • : And Hats!/ ,. •. • WASHINGTON, — So'm/e light thoughts , for' very heavy days, fririsc three smart Republican boys — National' Chairman Erownell.

The di-inking fountains in the War department's Pentagon arc ; so arranged that it is impossible ' to gfit u sprinkle—of water" there- 1 from—unless you take off your hat. ! It is cxLre'mcly inconvenient for a ! womn'n passerby to remove that I which is currently known us o hat. 17 invisible hairpins,, .the .rubber bandeau which keeps, that which is known as' a hat on that which is currcnly known as a head of hair, and ' then" having done all these things, to twist tfie swan-like throiit into-an ostrich nock while ' stooping and bending—merely to 'I get a drink of water bubbling away two inches-from your mouth. . Uniformed men have the same trouble quenching their thirst in the Pentagon, They can't reach the fountain's cooling spurt unless they take off their caps. The fountain is hooded, like a jack-in-the-pulpit. Or is it a chambered Nautilus' Anyhow, you have to go thirsty in the Pentagon if you have a hat on. Speaking of hats—a mean man phoned me the other morning before breakfast and said something like this. "That was an outrageous column you wrote the other day about Governor Dewey's mustache being a campaign liability-."It just proves tome that women have no right to be in politics or to vote cither. You ought to be ashamed'of exposing your ignorance that way. What's a mustache got to do with the election, any- hod? Besides, some of the finest men in our history have had mustaches. Even beards. Didn't Henry Wadsworth Longfellow have a beard? And Buffalo Bill? And Abraham Lincoln? Most of our •poets had' beards. How about that?" .... "I still don't think they looked well in same,". I answered. "I'd "or/-fellows they were when they were, smooth shaven with faces un- ally. called allergy and leet go at that, Here, the mother has to get down to work and take all sorts 0 fpains. No streamlined instructions 1 that avoid trouble £or her arc possible. The starch intolerant cases begin to show symptoms at about the third to the twelfth month. The fat intolerants at one to -eight -months. Both kinds usually respond well to a high, protein .diet! . But in all cases the mother must weigh the baby daily, study the stools for starch or fat Indirection and be ready to change the..feeding .formula in accordance with ' conditions.

Mine have worm holes and things in them. And it almost kills -me to fiay CO cents for a cantaloup. Can- taloups are phonier than ever this year." "I guess it's the Japanese bect.'es that make them that way. Oar whole yard has been eaten up by Japanese beetles. They're even walking into the house. I found some sticking to my verbena plants. They ought not to be hard to catch. They're sort of sluggish. I understand the reason the Japanese beetles came over here is that they got tired of the food in their 'own country. What do you suppose we could do to catch Japanese beetles for good and always? Maybe we ought to sick American beetles on them." "Well, I don't know about beetles and the- bad luck they bring. But I do know about the swcllest piece of goocl luck Lutic has had with her new baby. Her practical nurse is .an -.intimate friend of the lady whose husband runs the didcc wash. So the practical nurse asked her friend, who -asked her husband to move Lutie up on the waiting list. She was down to 732. Lutic said. And now she's second! Isn't that a wonderful break?" Well good b'ye, dear.' I'll be seeing you.. This war certainly has taught me or.e thing. It 'doesn't pay to cultivate congressmen and diploniats and people like tnat when' you live in Washington.
