Mr. Roosevelt may be travelling unofficially. Yet his inherited position and his own considerable public activities cannot permit him to escape all responsibility for his publicly stated opinions.

HAAKINSON Washington, Dec. 11 — (#')—A suggestion, that union leaders themselves be given the first opportunity to propose strike-averting changes in labor laws came todaj from four senators. One of them. Republican Ralph E. Flanders of Vermont, the 06 year old industrialist embarking on his first term, said this would reverse the "New Deal technique" of the Roosevelt administration. "When any anti-business law was planned in those days," flanders told a reporter, "the whole act was set up and then business was invited in to say 'no 'just before it was passed. "But now that Congress is going to deal with labor laws, we should call upon labor i'or recommendations even befor,e we start writing the law." Senators William F. Knqwland of California, another republican, and Democrats Edwin C. Johnson of Colorado and John L. McClellan of Arkansas agreed in separate inter-1 vie\ys that organized labor should be consulted at the outset. Flanders and McClellan both expressed some doubt, however, vhat many suggestions would be forthcoming because of the opposition they said previous reform proposals have aroused in union circles. "But I don't concur in ' that," Johnson said. "I don't think it would be .lust an idle -gesture to callkipon labor for its ides. I think they will have some very, constructive and worthwhile ides."

II —W)— Frolic acid, also known as vitamin M, has been developed through synthesis into a "more convenient" agent for the treatment of pernicious anemia and spruce, ihe University of Arkansas Medical school here has disclosed. "It is no better than liver cx- min) for- simple anemia, but H is nore convenient because it can e taken bv mouth." explained Dr. ulin H. Totter, associate profcs- or of biochemistry. Ho said tho substance first was cstecl on monkeys and micrp- rganisisms, then administered io uimans. Twelve of 13 patients re- ponded with marked improve- nent, Dr. Toiler said. The synthetic has been :"ound 'very effective" in the treatment jf diarrhea, which frequently occurs in cases of sprue, a tropical disease, the professor reported. Possible use of the synthesized Compound in building up low white ilood cell counts also is being studied lv tho medical school. The vitamin, later renamed folic icid. was discovered here in 1035 n the school's laboratories as a oy-product of research with monkeys on the cause of cataracts. Diets used in the experiments caused blood complications on ihe monkeys and the new vitamin was found. Rocket Plane Heralds New Air Age By JACK HAUPTLI Los Angeles, Dec.

Cooper was riding in an automobile driven by his nephew, Herbert Cooper, Cash. The truck was. driven by W. B. Howes, Beebe, who received leg injuries.

Herbert Cooper was fined $100 in Newport municipal court today ior reckless driving .in conneclion with the accident and was held under $500 bond for grand jury action on for the Democratic nomination for prosecutor last summer, sought $60,000 judgment in each suit filed in circuit court. Each action sought $20,000 actual damages, $20,000 compensatory damages and $20,000 punitive damages. In the slander suit, Coffelt charged lhat McClellan read at a Malvern political rally what purported to be Ihe oath taken by members of a religious fraternal organization, that the oath was false and that 'the action "consli- tuted a serious slanderous attack" on Coffell who was not a member of Ihe organization. The slander complaint declared lhat the "very Congressional Record from which said alleged oath was read finds said oath to be false." The libel complaint listed several alleged publications made over McClellan's name in which, the complaint said, Coffelt was charged with being "a Communist and an un-American, and religious deserter."

" " Cancer of the inner lining of Ihe .io.se may result, from exposure to eliminates-, nickel carbonyl, and radioactive .substances. Cancers of the bronchi and lung can develop as result of irritation with arsenic, soot, tar, and radioactive materials. The only form of cancer which apparently is on the increase is cancer of the lung, and il has been suggested lhal lar irritation from excessive smoking is a factor in its development. Inhalation, of dusl containing radioactive materials is known lo produce cancer of the lung in certain miners. Cancer of the bladder and kidney has followed exposure to aromatic amines, such as benzidinc and aniline. Blood disorders develop af- ler exposure lo bcncnc and radioactive particles. Industry is meeting the problem by installing belter exhaust-ventilation systems, constructing walls and floors lhal can be cleaned easily, and removing special Irritants before they are discharged into the air. Workers should wear proper cloths and mask:;, and shower baths and special rooms for eating and storing slrccl clothing should be piovided. World - Wide Disease Occupational cancer is well known in all parts of the world. In Ihe tropics, for example, men who carry loads for long distances keep up their endurance by chewing bct- clnut. The belolnul leaf is mixed with lime and held in the mouth a only one point, but its use causes irritation and resultant cancerous lowlhs. A simple way lo produce cancer in the laboratory is by chronic irritation with heat, radioacticc substances, or chemicals.

Sidney doesn't believe in any nonsense aboul love. All Ihe same, she wonders why she doesn't hear from Ace Lalshaw. VII Of course, you could never guess what Ace would or wouldn't dp; he was slippery as quicksilver, Sidney had known lhal from Ihe beginning, and il was probably part of his charm. And what was the beginning? Sidney didn't have to concentrate, remembering. It was a day in September, she was visiting Norma in Henderson; they had gone lo the county fair, taking in the races, the side - shows, the tenls of Ircaks, everything, until they hadn't a red cent left and had laughed themselves inlo a sUUe of sheer exhaustion. Sidney had but lo close her eyes and bring il all back, Ihe heal of Ihe afternoon, the white sunshine, the dust rising in clouds from the race track. Sidney and Norma had been eating popcorn and cotlon candy, their throats were dry, and they thought that maybed if. they went to the refreshments pavilion, some friend of Norma's might come by and treat them to pink lemondadc'. But the person \yho bought the lemonade turned out to be Ace Lal- shaw—Ihough, of course, Ihey dm- n'l know his name then. > Sidney would probably never lor- gei her first impression of leaning against the bunting- wrapped pillar of Ihe pavilion; blond, nonchalant, a smile in his cal- culaling eyes, the straw hat on the side of his head secured by a black cord to the lapel of his bliu serge suit.

Then- letters, he said, could be sent back and forth by Norma, the sealed envelopes rc-sonlcd in an outer envelope and addressed either to or from the parsonage. A bundanl as autumn leaves, the letters flew, through October and November, until Thanksgiving when Sidney visited in Henderson again. She was there for a few days at Christmas, too.
