I'M NATIONAL INTEREST IN THIS PRIMARY The contest in which Hamilton Fish, Ropublic.'in isolationist hluo-bloud, meets Augustus -A, Bt'iiiuitt, small town ,Democratic Jawyoi-, in tin.- Congressional primary eloctiun today, has moi-o tlian local inti.Tcst. The Now York Herald-Tribune's .Kofoort S. Bird .shrewdly observes that, it "is enlisting more interest in high places th.-iu in some ol' (he key i'arui districts where it will bo decided." National interest arises because Mr. Fish, whoso isolationism is well known, is running; 1'or liis thirteenth C'ungros- sional term nnd will, it' victorious, fall heir, on the basis ot' seniority, to the Chairmanship .'of the Mouse En IPS Committee should the Kopublicaius win a majority in the Lower'House no.vt t.'alJ.

They may J»o a 'little sore at all the fuss outsiders are stirring up about who's going to represent them, resent Mr. Hennett as an outsider's candidate and vote Mr. Fish back instead. Govonior Dewey has made it clour that personally he is opposed to Fish. The latter,, however, has stated that he intends to vote for Dewey and Bricker for president anil vice-president, respectively. Mr. Fish, nn old campaigner, is leaving the question of his nomination up to the voters of his district to decide.

Looking at Life By ERICH BRANDEIS A Buffalo judge has just ren- dci-ed a decision- whi«:h .should be of the most far-i-eaching importance to the life of our nation. A woman war worker has accused her husband of xlcaling $300 from her and hailed him into court. According to tOie complaint, she had lying up her slacks when going to bed and Jic. had gone through them and taken out the money. The 'judge dismissed the complaint and the defendant. He ruled : that "the old law that one party to j a marriage cannot be guilty of larceny of the other's property, is reciprocal," and -commen-todd: "The court tak«s judicial notice that from time immemorial it has been the custom of the wife to dip her hands into^thc pockets of. her husband." So, by the same reasoning, 3)c went on, a. husband has the sa7ne right in respect to his wife. Well, that is a Jaarned judge's opinion, but it isn't mine. I have never believed that marriage is the end of individual rights and particularly the end of individual privacy. Oh yes, I know, there is aji old theory that marriage makes two people one, but that doesn't work out in practice. Two people can, never lose tVieir ndividuality, can never be happy when every possession, every thought, every action of thei?-s becomes the property, of anotbe?-. I kr.ow so many married people who think nothing of opening other's mall. Personally I would never <], of opening my wife'a mail more Ulan she would op*n If she wants to 1*11 me Jn a letter she received, che",' «o on her own account. I .same.

' GET RID OF RAGWEED The season on rag'weed, which is said to be the most important cause of hay 1'evor in Connecticut, lasts from about August JO lo October 1, or until early fro* I. Tho pollen can be eradicated by pnll- int;' up (lie ragweed by their roots before the plants have n chance to blossom and send their pollen into the air. The common variety of ragweed grows in gardens, vacant lots and wherever there is freshly tunii'd earth. It is well to loom how to recognixe the plants-and to take an active 1 part in community efforts to destroy them. Hay fever sufferers will forever appreciate anything and everything done to remove the cause of one.of the most distressing maladies which afflict a great manv Iintnans. CHECK RACKET Another sl.iniy way to get money from honest folks, who have earned it now comes to light. The thief's method is to .<4eal n check, present it, as "identification" to a social security office, saying lie has no carrl.' At first ho was believed, find..card was issued in tin- name of the check's payee. Then the check was pre- .sented at a st.range bank, with the social security card as identification. At first some banks cashed thpm. Banks and social security offices a?'C both wiser, and toiighor now, but the general public should be forewarned. There are too many rackets. Tt seems obvious, by this time, that circus tents should be fireproofed. Peter P. Rybinski, son of Mr, and Mrs. Mitchell V.

And, tall or short, the rate of growth of' bone, the n^e at which the bones are laitl down is the same.^ Controlled by Ductless Glands, This phenomenon of • . basic growth is controlled largely by two of the ductless glands— the thyroid and pituitary. Their influence is exerted on the bones and can bo seen and adjudged by the X-ray. Parents who know a little smattering, of this byhavir.K read some of the pipular accounts of the' ductless glands in current -literature are always fussing and wondering whether to give one or the other of their children some gland extracts to make it grow or to stop it growing, or to make it thin of fat, as the .case may. be. There is just a grain . or two of reason Jn these ideas, -enough to make thorn worth consideration in some cases, but- such treatment should be given or withheld in accordance with. • a full knowledge of the subject and common sense. ." .

Both the Douglas girls, who came here to perform at the Democratic national convention, are candidates, for the Congress c.f the United States! Both have brains in excess and brawn in pleasing do- .llc'iehcy.' And if they don't get down to Washington as law-makers after the .November election it won't'Ire because they don't know how nnd when to talk out in meeting and how to look pretty for the cameras. ' Tho Douglas girls met for the first time when they arrived ai tho women's division national committee headquarters at the Stevens ho tel to have their pictures taken Mrs. Helen Gahagan Douglas, who comes from California, by way o the Hollywood screen, the Berlin opera and the..ATcw York stage, is Democratic glamor girl No. 1.

Undoubtedly there is for n time in his body an over-secrotion of the pituitary , but b'eforc long' Na-' turo gets control and slows the pituitary down and he. winds up a normal, average pattern.

Tent With X-ray Y • . .. Just when,' or at what .point, these allowable divergences go. over into the definitely pathologic] where treatment by gland ex-' tracts is indicated is a matter of judgment. One test if any parent is puzzled is totake' an X-ray of the wrist and-see the bone age as shown by ossification of the carpal bones. These little bones begin to Louisa Wilson, Democratic publicity chief of "Hero's Helen, everybody." The other Mrs. Douglas is Emily Taft' Douglas of Illinois, not so dramatic as Helen "but very neatly done with piquant nose, bright eyes, concave waistline,. good legs and a , determination to make American women conscious of the place of the United States in the "international teamwork." "Look cozier, you two," called the photographers to the sister act. The sister act, Douglas and Gouglas, Inc., clasped hands and sparkled with intelligence and good will. This little drama I am recording took place two days before the opening of the convention, mind you. Bu t tho women heudliners .were there all dressed up with some place to go. Indeed the women are so active :n this convention set-up, .that it 'is being' honestly said it is a women's convention. Th.e Democratic women are organized -from the right political .thought down to the right share of lipstick. "And why not?" said Senator Alberi Bai'lcley, U> a group of well- wishers in the hotel lobby. "With 10 million men in the Army and Navy there will be more votes cast by women than men in-the coming election. The importance of women 'bumbledom very thin." This remark was meant, I think, to refer in some way to the congressman from • Connecticut whom I hasten to add tl',e Democratic committee is out to do-;uce Clare Luce in a big or little way. Mrs, J. Borden Harr'man, former United States minister to Norway, looking as elegant and straight- backed as ever, was also on view and spoke freely about women at the peace table and other subjects and-she said it's "a slTame to have me around when 1 am over 70 and there are all those lovely, smart, young women about." The lovely, smart, young women were there, too. Especially national committee secretary, Mrs. Dorothy McElroy Vredcnburgh, slightly shy in public but knowing in her own way. "Aunt Mary" Norton, congresswoman from Now Jersey, almost stole the resolutions commit- toe'shoxv as its co-chairman. She is also co-chairman of the platform committee. -These Democratic women arc experienced politicians. They are going to teach the newcomers how to get votes at a "campaign school" directed by Mrs. Charles W. Tillett assistant natnonnl committee chairman. On these starry-eyed occasions pleasant attention will be called to the "fists" of Democratic women beginning way fiack in 18G9 when a Democratic councilman in Wyoming introduced the bill that nrst gave American women the right to vote. After-that the Democratic girls kept on stepping ligh, wido and handsome. They got Hattie Caraway, the first woman member of senate; Nellie Taylor of Wyoming, the first woman governor; t Mary Norton, the first voman member of the House Ropepresentatiye: sent Mrs. Ruth Jryan Oweo to Denmark OK the Irst minister, and put Perkins in- o the cabinet as labor secretary nd first ..woman member, of -the resident's ollicial family. U. S.-Portuguese Trade Gains Seen As Lasting After The War BV UOBERT S. WALTERS L'niU-d l^ress Stan" Correspondent Washington —(L'P)— Wartime trade shirts, including grcatei commerce between the United States and Portugal, are likely to extend into the period of peace according to Dr. Joao Antonio dc Biomchi, Portuguese Ambassadoi to the United States. Dr. dc Bianchi, who has been.his country's minister here nearly 11 years, recently was raised to rank of ambassador in recognition of the growing importance of relations between the United States and Portugal. . The war has stepped up trade between the two countries. According to Dr. dc Bianchi. U. S. products have done much to maintain his country's economy. Cnxlitx Mount in 1). S. Imports from the United States have included coal, wheat, newsprint nnd lubricants. Portugal has sent this country cork, sisal (fiber), wines and brandy. Portugal will be in a solvent position after the war, Dr. deBi- anchi said. She -has piled up substantial balances in the United States and Britain as a result of wartime commercial transactions. She also has become a communications bridgehead in Europe, a position she hopes to maintain. Dr. dc Bianchi believes that airways may make the Atlantic "a greater Mediterranean" after the war and that Portugal is likely to proiit as a result of that develop mciH. along with the UniteJ States, Britain and other countries. He pointed out that Lisbon, together with New York and Rio de Janeiro, is part of an j'mportsat air-route triangle and that Azores have value as a stop-ovtr point. S<?os Colonies Developing The Ambassador said !ii: Portugal hopes for increased t(- volepmenui in her colonies ahe the war. These have such variti resources as copi~a, beeswax, sugar, coffee and fish. He noted thi". possibilities of tuna canneri«?s have been studied in Angola. That colony and Mozambique, he said, doubtless wii! need tractors, railway and automotive equipment once the \var ends. Plans for the homeland.[he said, include development of clectne power and mineral resources and expansion of the textil.; industry. Portugal also hopes to modernize her small merchant marine after the war. All indications .are that U. S.- Portuguese trade, which has show's a marked increase in recent yean, .vill continue to flourish in pcace- .inK'. Dr. de Bianchi asserted. ; o m m e r c i a 1 ties have bt*n strengthened and show promisee.' asting, he said. NOTICE!
