The task of rounding up the Japanese in southeast Asia fell to the British Tommies in that area — the Southeast Asia Command—with General MacArthur's headquai'ters responsible for providing the shipping for repatriation. Bearing directly on the reported speed-up decision is the breakdown in negotialions between Russia and MacArthur representatives earlier this year over the estimated 800,000 Japanese troops held by Soviet forces. Ambassador George Atcheson, Jr., chief of MacArthur's diplomatic section, told newsmen -.several days ago that had informed General Kuzma Derevyanko, Soviet member of the Allied council, that shipping was available i'or repatriation of all Japanese from the Asiatic continent. Derevyanko was reported to have taken the position that he was authorized to discuss the repatriation of only .Japanese civi lians from north Korea, and "cer tain Japanese civilians i'rom soutl Manchuria.' Aichesons aclion in throwing the spotlighl on the former Jaaanese troops still in Russian hands wa tantamount to diplomatic pressur uponlhe Soviel government. But, at the same time, the spot light reflected upon the delay i returning Japanese in Anglo-Amei ican territory. Hence diplomatic of ficals acknowledged that this country was anxious to avoid any pot-calling-the-kettle- black argument by Russia. o cabinel over foreign policy. Male Species May N of Have io Go Naked This Winter Chicago, Sepl. 20 — (/P) — There will be enough men's clolncs in Ihe nalions retail clothing stores this winter so that "no consumer will have to go naked,' 1 says the president of the Nalional Associa- lion of Relail Clothiers and Furnishers. Morris R. Myers, president of Ihe association representing most of the country's 35,000 retail mens clothing stores, gave this outlook for men's clothing following a meeting yesterday of the group's board of directors: Slocks of men's suits, topcoats and overcoats will gradually improve in the next six to nine months. Until the end of thai period the .Jemand will keep stores from building up reserves. The shortage of mens furnishings — shirts, handkerchiefs, socks, underwear —can be relieved in much shorter time because less skill is re quired in manufacturing them. Myers said production already is above the 1939 level but that shortage of labor in the needle trades is the chief bottleneck in clothing production. ...

He pays Ihc bills and hangs his hat there because he is afraid she will humiliate him and he may lose his job if he clears out.

Surely you must have seen enough of life lo know that most of the married men who have at'f aris with other women-have ne. id ea in Ihc world of divorcing Iheii wives . On the contrary, they are clining to their skirts because lha keeps them from having to marr> their mistresses. So when a married man tells hi weetie how he longs to marry hci nd how cruel his wife is in not g' •ing him a divorce, don't be dum nough to believe him.

The treatment of minorities is a vexed and troubled issue in our modern world. Prejudice and ha- w nas m ,,. lu trcd have occasioned colossal siif- Wnal depths of art fering and tragedy The Jews, who | jn the backgrounds enunciated as indicated in the bcrip i . )can immigrant! urc passages in our lesson Jie Jaw i . undeveloped of kindliness and fairness toward •'.--.he stranger, arc the chief victims of this murderous inhumanity. Even in the United Slates, and n a measure in Canada, where we lave prided ourselves on the democratic achievement of enabling persons of widely varied sort sin j jrigin, race and creed ,lo live amicably together, the monstrous ogre of prejudice against minorities has raised ils vile, denunciatory voice. The law of the stranger is something to be studied, not only in relation to a far-off time in Israel, but as something vitally aff- ecling every modern community. It is interesting.to note the ground on which the law of the stranger of Israel was based, viz., that the Jews had themselves been strangers in Egypt. People do not commonly profit so well and favorably from their own experience. It is often those who have been the victims of racial and social prejudice who are most relcntlelss in their prejudice against others. In a Connecticut! town some years ago, a local citizen remarked to me upon the fact that the most prej hates. They ought not to be ered, and instead We ought to study the ways of understanding and liking ones another. Differences often become a cause of better mutual appreciation, when they are understood.
