Reducing energy foods (fats, oils, sugars, and starches) n the diet forces the body to use ts fat reserves for energy ex- jenditurc. Exercise is an inefficient method of weight reduction. Only as enor- TUIS expenditure of energy can equal the reduction value of eating less of energy-producing foods. Most persons who are overweight find it difficult to excerise, aecausc of the strain on their hearts from the extra fat which they have been carrying around. As weight reduction gets under way, however, excerise is a good tonic to muscles which have been inactive for some time. Belts Only Compress Fat Belts and girdles improve the appearance, but they do not reduce weight. They compress the fat without reducing it. Massage has no efftct on fatty accumulations. They must be leached out from the inside; they cannot be rubbed away from the outside. So-called reducing foods have low caloric-value (that is, energy value). Fruits and vegetables are excellent examples of reducing foods. All foods, however, arc low in calories if only small portions o them are eaten. Weight reduction through the use of laxatives or as a result o sweating is only temporary. Th lost weight is regained as,soon a water is" t^ken i"tn the svst°m. Bath salts, reducing pastes, and soaps do not cause permanent, weight-loss, cither. Fat is the body's storehouse of FDR Believed Third War Inevitable New York, Sept. 3 — (UP) — ranklin D.

"If this isn't done, we might as veil agree that we're in for another war," he said. The late president's views on the future and hitherto unrcvcalcd secret promises and agreements made at the Casablanca conference were disclosed in an article , Look magazine, taken from Ellott Roosevelt's book, "As He Saw It," to be published in October. Elliott wrote that he sat by his 'ather's bed In a Casablanca villa one night during the conference in January 1943, and heard for the first time about the United Nations. Mr. Roosevelt told his son that France should be restored to a world power, but that she should be given onl" a trusteeship over her former colonies, reporting annually. The younger Roosevelt asked to whom France would re port, and later wrote: ' "The organization of the United Nations, when it's set lip,' fa ther replied. It was the :"irst time I'd ever heard of this plan. " 'How else?' he went on. 'The Big Four — ourselves, Britain, China, the Soviet. Union —will be energy.

Weight Loss Slows Down Initial weight-loss in any program is usually rapid, for this first loss consists of water and of lessened bowel-content. Low-caloric diets can be used for three to four weeks in such a way that three to four pounds weight-loss a week is experienced. After half the desired weight reduction had taken place, the diet can be increased and the weight loss slowed down. From then or! one need only learn to eat the right food in the proper amounts to continue the gradual reduction. Drugs which assist weight reduction include thyrqid extract and benzedrine sulfate. These drugs should not be used except upon the advice of a physician. Thyroid extract increases metabolism, and benzedrine sulfate helps to overcome the tired feeling and lessens the tendency to break training.

The notice that the United States expects damages for the loss of life and property was contained in a 3100-word note delivered by Undersecretary of State William L. Clayton to Dr. Scrgijc Makicdo, Yugoslav charge d'affaires, last night. The note, in fact, expressed surprise that Yugoslavia had not yoluntcrrcd in advance to pay.

After answering each point of the Tito indictment, the American undersecretary declared that the alleged violations of Yugoslav territory "must have been made by planes other than United States planes." He did not elaborate on that point. Tito had claimed 278 unauthorized American flights over Yugoslavia since July 1C. Clayton, basing his figures on a check into "the whereabouts of every .American military plane in Europe during the period," said there were only 47 flights anywhere near Yugoslav territory. And he could deny categorically, he said, that some of those planes crossed the Yugoslav frontier. "No American planes have flown over Yugoslavia intentionally without advance approval of Yugoslav authorities unless forced to do so in an emergency," he asserted. In that connection, Clayton denied Tito's contention that neither of the American transports forced down was over Yugoslav territory because of bad weather. The pilot of the plane which crashed August 9 got off, course, the American note said, because of "heavy clouds, icing and high winds." But as for the August 19 crash, Clayton said it was impossible to get complete information for a grim reason: "The pilot and crew of this unarmed American transport arc dead, shot down by Yugoslav armed aircraft."

Y., Sept. 4—W)—New York's Republicans rc-nominatcd Thomas E. Dewey as candidate for governor today while Democrats picked U. S. Senator James M. Mead as his opponent. The actual, long-anticipated selections came by tumultuous, unanimous, acclamation of v-'idely- cheering delegates at slate conventions where both parties made it plain they would claim "progressive" and "liberal" records in the 5rc-convcntion activity.

State System Hurts Hospital Head Asserts Little Rock, Sept. 4—(/I 1 )—Lack of facilities at University hospital here has been attributed by Dr. ' B. B. Wells, superintendent, to the University of Arkansas' "remote control system" of operating the institution, Dr. Wells' replied last night to a statement by Dr. A. M. Harding, U. of A. president, that he would investigate reports that a Washington county woman had suffered from neglect at the hospital and that he would dismiss any responsible persons . The hospital superintendent said the institution was handicapped by an insufficient budget, inadequate facilities and equipment and a fast turnover of staff members who could gel higher salaries in other states. He said that he would welcome an investigation by University officials, that he iiad "bogged" them to inspect the hospital to see its handicaps first hand but that they had failed to do so.

WA3D Washington, Sept. 4 — {ff) — The threat of a shipping tieup on all coasts tomorrow built un pressure on the Wage" Stabilization Board today to alter its 12-day-old "pay cut" decision affecting AFL sail- rs. From within the board and out' side, members were being urged to review inyjr August 23 ruling for denying 43,000 AFL seagoing unionists wage boosts in excess ol the $17.50 3 month • granted rival CIO unions last June 15. John Hawk, vice president of the AFL Seafarers International union, said in New York yesterday that from 94,000 to 100,000 AFL seamen on the Atlantic, Ptfcific and gulf coasts were ready .'o walk off their ships Thursday. He did not set an hour. The issue took on aspects of a test of the government's wage stabilization program because of this background: . . In July the AFL-sailors union of the Pacific necotiated a contract with the Pacific American Ship- owners Association calling for 'a $22.50 monthly increase for able- bodies seamen. Later the AFL-Seafarers International union won a $27,50 a month hike from the east and gulf Atlantic coast general agents. Although the War Shipping Administration approved the higher rates for AFL seamen, the wage board held that any riase over $17.50 would be inflationary, That touched off the new strike threat.
