Oct. 31 — (/P)— Grain futures were nervous and responded quickly to influences in today's board of trade session. The market was off to a good start, but the influence of an oar'Iy tbreak in cotton depressed all grains except wheat to below yesterday's closing levels. Word that India had asked for l.OOO'.OOO bushels of corn to apply on last quarter allocations had a stimulating effect and prcies on that £eed grain advanced to the day's high, ohort covering oats moved the price up 2 cents above the day's low.

Molotov had placed America on the defensive with his bitter attack of the preceding day. One official said the American speech was calculated lo "take the ball away from jTijhrtov." Austin, it was learned, decided on a moderate reply lo the strong words of the Russian foreign minister because he considered Mqlo- lov's words to be bargaining words, the words of an opposing attorney addressing a jury. Despite some pressure from within his own delegation, the American delegate confined his remarks on Mololov's charges to a relatively mild retort: "Mr. Molotov's speech indicated distrust and misunderstanding of the motives of the United States and of other members of the United Nations. 'I do not believe that recriminations among nations allied in war and in peace promote that unity which Mr. Molotov so rightly points out is essential lo the sue cess of ihe United Nalions. "... We fought for freedom side by side without recrimination. Can'l \ye fight lor peace side : by side without recrimination?" He urged that Molotov's disarmament proposals be placed on the assembly's agenda "and fully considered and discussed." 'The United Stales goes further," Quite 'appropriate to the bcgining of the new Sunday School year, Ihe Gospel Tabernacle has purchased a School Bus. of its bearing on several different proposals on the agenda. Andrei Vishinsky , Soviet Delegate, said tha Russia would welcome an assembly debale on Spain bul that "we have had enough words. It is time for action." But when the debale comes, the Uniled Stales made il plain, 'this cpuntry will oppose any mere disarmament treaty and will insist on international inspection and other effective controls. Russia, which already has reject he said. The Uniled States . . . . is prepared , to cooperate fully with all olher members of Ih'e United Nalions -in -disarmament. • It advo cates effective safeguards by way of inspection and other means to piotecl complying slates against the hazards, of. violation and -evasion." •,. ' Austin's sentence on safeguards was drawn word-for-word: from the American atomic cpnlrol plan pre sented to Ihe UN by Bernard M. Baruch. That plan was rejected categorically by Molotov on Tuesday, when he said, in effect that Russia will not waver from its in ed the American plan :"or such in- sistence that world atomic control . , ; —i „„,• ,!„ ,.., „*—.-,. be lert to nat j Qna ]; ra ther than international agencies. Austin reminded Molotov that the first step toward any reduction oC arms would be to get the UN's; military staff committee working on the size and types of armed forces to be placed at the U.N.'s disposal bv individual nations. He recalled that the five-nation staff committee's progress had been stalled by Russia's delay in placing her initial views on this question alongside those of the United States, France, Britain and China. Austin placed the broadest possible interpretation on another sec tion of Molotov's speech: He said he understood the Russian to announce that Russia was ready and willing lo "report on its armed forces in ex-enemy slales as well as in olher foreign countries." "The United States hast nothing to hide with regard to our armed forces at home or abroad," Austin said. Then he proposed that the troops survey proposed by Russia be extended lo include "all mobilized armed forces, whether at home or abroad." o Shoe Prices Go Up Following Decontrol Step ternalional safeguards on atomic- energy, was expecled io rejecl their extension to all other arms as well. British spokesmen, expressing support for the American proposals and opposition to the Russian plan, said Brilain welcomed debale on Ihe matter as did the United States. The American proposals lor a universal reduction of arms were laid down lasl nighl in an assembly address by former Sen. Warren R. Auslin, chief U. S. delegale. Auslin called for reports from all nations on a their armed forces both abroad and at home, and served notice that the Uniled Slales expecls worldwide disarmament .or no disarmamenl at all. "After the lasl %yar we made the mistake of disarming unilaterally," he declared. "We shall not repeat thai mistake." He promised that the United Stales, would not join in what he called Russia's policy of recrimination and distrust. His carefully composed speech, approved by Secretary of State James F. Byrnes and President Truman in the early hours of Wednesday morning, was considered by many to be: 1. A challenge to Russia's sincerity on the questions of atomic control, general disarmamenl and Ihe overall principle of unanimily among the big powers. 2. A bid for the role of initiative-taker among the United Na- new 48 passenger Sunday and Christ's Ambassador The bus is blue and trimmed with silver. Each Sunday morning for several years the Tabernacle has sent oul one or Iwo -trucks on different roules to rural people giving Ihem an opportunity to attend Sunday School, and Church. These trucks have been furnished by the Brunei- - Ivory Handle Company. and have been equipped with seals and tarpaulins for comfort and protection. Many ne\v friends have been won to the Tabernacle by this means, and many people have been able to attend the Sunday Services who would not have been able to atlend church anywhere. Several months ago the officials of the church negotiated for a new closed in, bus to serve in this capacity. The new bus arrived on the night 'of October 12th and made ils initial trip on Sunday, October 13th, bringing in 28 passengers. It is expected lhal Ihe number coming in on Ihe bus will increase from Sunday t,o Sunday until a capacity load is Reached. Ralph Francis is Ihe driver of Ihe bus. Ho drove Ihe truck on this route before being inducted into the armv. and asked for the job back upon his discharge. His services are given as his liberal .contribution to Ihe church. The present roule of Ihe bus covers about thirty miles. The bus leaves Hope -traveling wesl on highway 07 Io the Guernsey road, thence north to the Columbus road. An extensive loop is made out the Columbus road bevond cross- roads and back to the Melrose road, culling ac- cross .from Ihc highway. No. 4 through the Melrose road to old highsvay -G7, thence east on old G7 into Hope. It is not intended that those who are already allending Sunday School or church al any of Ihe rural church, .:or in any of Ihe city churches/ .a vail themselves of this transportation. But Ihis transportation is provided for those who do not otherwise altend the Sunday services, anywhere. It is not the desire o£ the Tabernacle people to draw upon any other congregation for atlendanoe or membership. Bul if Ihere are those living on or near the present route, who would like to lake advanlase of Ihis Iranspor- tation to-attend the Sunday services at the Tabernacle, they are welcome. The bus makes both Ihe morning and evening trip, making it possible for those who care to, to attend the evening services as well. An additional offering was lifted on the bus al Iho Tabernacle on Sunday n'rghl, October 27th. The offering amounted to 51,000 and completely finished paying for the bus.

Ceilings on shoes, leathers, hides and skins were removed yesterday by Reconversion Direclor John R. Sleelman. The order came as a complele surprise to OPA.

Because; of the slaughtering holiday, shoe'production dropped 11 per cent in Senlembcr to an osti- maled 41',00,000 pairs. A further decline was expecled this month. Total production for 1946 was expected to be about 510,000,000 pairs — 40,000,000 pairs fewer than an earlier estimate. OPA officials said the decontrol of shoes would not have a material effect on the control of other clolh in? Hems. OPA intends to keep all other basic clothinng Hems under control unless, one official said, H should be overruled by the White House. Retail prices of diapers, heavj underwear and certain collon knitted fabric were increased today to cover a four to five cen a pound increase in yarn. Meanwhile, OPA continued work on its masler decontrol plan and of ficials said another installmeni rnighl be issued today or iomor row.

But the barracks -- the radio said the barracks.. .Maybe, though, maybe not the same barracks. The were officers. Maybe officers —oh, she didn't know; she didn't know anything about the Army. Then a few weeks later she received word from home that Nate had survived the bombing at Pearl Harbor without even an injury; an the next day Mrs. Mays called her attention to a little squib in the newspaper. It stated that Mrs. Van Dyke Bartlett had learned that her son, Lieut. Bruce Van Dyke Bart- letl was safe and uninjured in Hawaii. Gaylo felt weak in her relief. Then she smiled. This was whal a global war did to Bruce Van Dyke Baitlett; it reduced him to a small inch of type on an inside page. In the succeeding months, Gaylc's life followed an almost unvarying routine. She got up early, went to work with Barney and his sister, returned home, devoted herself to Kent, ate dinner, read the newspapers, listened to the radio, and then went to bed. Perhaps once a week she and Mrs. Mays went to a movie in Norwalk or Stamford. Then secretly amused at the irony of the situation, she paid Barney r >() cents to stay with Kent. "No- jody," she told Mrs. Mays, 'can Kent is neglected when he's Mrs. Bartlctt's own belonged Io, the foolball games he had starred in. Then came the Hist lines: 'Lieutenant Bartlell is survived by his wife, the former Gayle Kent of Calvin, Ohio, his son, James Kent Bartlett, and his mother, widow of the famous manufacturer and financier, Van Dyke Barl- letl."

No longer will Ihe diaper, fluttering on the wash line be the flag of the Union, but the .banner of freedom. , It is a perfectly'lovely .theory, for no one will deny'thai Ihere are no -other laborers on earth who work such long hours and for so litlle financial compensation us the. wives and mothers-.who have to do all of their own housework and baby- lending, besides- keeping grouchy husbands appeased and ad olescenl boys and' girls in line. Nothing is truer than the old saying lhal woman's work is never done. A man can accomplish his task and sit down • and resl a bit, bul a wife and mother's work is a perpetual motion jpb that never stops. 11 is cooking'three'meals n day, 305 limes a year. .11 is washing lilllc faces lhal are dirly Ihe next minule. It is mending clothes thai are forever getting lorn. II is sweeping floors hal : won't slay clean. Fixing Ihe baby's formula and rocking him Io sleep. It is 'making'Mamie a -new dress Io wear Io a parly. II is lying up a hurt finger. II is trying to make one dollar do the work of five. Important Cog It is a woman's life repeating itself, day, after day, month after month, year after year, is doing Ihe liltle things thai may seem small in Ihemselves, but add up to the labor that keeps a home a going concern which produces contented husbands and the well brought up ' children; - who are the backbone of the nalion. ievcmenl could be accomplished in •10 working hours a week, il vyould be a grand Ihinu:-. But while science has devised an atomic bomb that i will annihilate a whole city, no in-1 ventive genius has ever yet thoughl ' hundred and sixlv eight is nearer up any gadget that will lake the ventive genius has ever yet thought her speed. Unfortunately we have al the present a vivid and terrible 1 illustration of how this theory of making a home and rearing children by absent treatment works out. Many women, who have fallen for Ihe propaganda aboul the pitiful life of the Wife and mother who is tied down by her family, are spending their Ihno in bars and taverns and in having lillle affairs wilh strange men, while Iheir children roam Ihe streets and consort with hoodlums and get old in sin before they are old in years. It, is the absentee mothers who are i-esponsible for the juvenile delinquency problem, for you can't rear children successfully by remote control. It makes one shudder to contem- plale whal would happen Io the world'if all wives and mothers only worked at Iheir job for 40 hours, a week. Who would change Ihe baby when Mother was off duly? Could a family be trained Io live on one meal a day? Would husbands who barely earn enough money Io support one family have to have Uvo wives who would spell each other n the kilchen? And would a nother be willing to leave her sick child Io the care of others because her 40 hours labor was up? Forlunalely. however, we needn't vorry aboul Ihis.

Then one day early in June she opened the newspaper to glance at the headlines before she went to work.

Mrs Mays, came into the room with Kent's breakfast, and he dash- lid around the table to climb into his high chair. ..,,,,, "Come here," Gayle said to Mrs. Mays. "See this." .

One paper had half a dozen pictures of Bart, including a baby picture, a picture of him in football togs, one standing >y a plane he had owned as a civ- lian, one in his uniform, one of lim as a prep school boy, and one of him in his cap and gown at Yale. It seemed as if the papers vere determined to print every de- ail of his life, and each emphasized the glory of his untimely end. 'Six Zeros," an editorial said 'Who ould have a nobler epitaph?"
