Duck hunting, along with similar sports, brings this about. Americans, as a people, are born with wider opportunities for gun using than any other nation except, possibly, the Swiss. And the Swiss, a« every military observer reports, make crack soldiers. Technically, of course, there Is a big difference between the shootinR of a scatter gun and the firing of a rifle. But the psychological preparation for shooting cither shotgun or rifle is about the same. And most American boys, early in their teens, get some taste of this preparation. All of which, means this: Game preservation, game propagation and the whole multl-milllon-dol- lar industry of hunting are investments In national defense. Worse Over There Our news columns have carried the plaint of shirt-manufacturers and laundry people re- "garHing »threatened shortage of pins. We have steeled ourselves to stand for the deprivation, and are even welcoming the prospect of a new shirt or a newly-laun- derea shirt "minus concealed phi fastenings. Determination to face the Impending shortage is bolstered by the news of another menace. European beauty shops cant get hairpins, and the same thing may occur over here. The hairpin is the most useful of our household implements, and we dont like to think what its disappearance will mean. Voice Of The Press GOSSIP OR (Illinois State Journal) The State Journal heretofore has -storie* of an effort- to call off next years' congressional ejections, attributing such reports to baseless speculation on the future of congress. Some critics have. said. in sarcasm, that we would as well abolish congress and this, no doubt. is responsible for the gossip referred to. Administration partisans affect to believe, however, that such gossip Is really carefully planted Nasi propaganda, and that U is designed to indicate an actual breaking down of the American government. It IK conceivable, of course, lhat_lf the elections were really aSfcrVOolHid: or postponed, the cause of repreaen- -. tative government would be serious)}- embarrassed everywhere. If for no reason other than that of asserting American solidarity, all talk of getting rid of our congress win be dropped. W« may continue to rail at Its present membership, individually and collectively, but our displeasure will be visited upon them •t the polls—not by abolishing their Jobs. 'Congressmen who are In fa- TOT must be disciplined by the folks at home. arH Uist mak*« nt«i*try the customary election at UM customary time. Should this country abandon, even temporarily, th« congressional eltc- tlon. such action would b* regardad abroad'as a victory for Hitler and his sinister philosophy. His followers have already declared that UM war has destroyed democratic sentiment throughout Europe. They •ven point to England as a convert to totalitarian government and rule by dictators)))!). "Der Fuehrer — Winston Churchill" Is a Berlin witticism. ,. Nothing would better serve the Nazi philosophy than America's •crapping of congressional elections. Ho matter what we say regarding the courage, the aptness or the abil- ~il3L^L_our Jegtslators^we are not^ tanking them for ~th* aoap-makars We feel sure our form of govern- awni is best when its agents perform according to form.

''Maybe so. maybe so But it has never been very smart business to trp to paw the buck to that fellow." What It aH means Is this: A month ago Odium took the job of head of the division of contract distribution in the Washington defense setup. He took It right «t the brink of a new phase of the defense effort. the actual manufacturing phase in which there won't be enough ol various materials to keep some thousands of peace businesses running as formerly. Two Million Idle Predicted How many will have to close down how many workers will lose their jobs, remains to be seen. But Washington authorities and business men say there is no"doubt about It, the problem Is severe. Some estimate 2.000.000 worker* will lose their jobs by January- Odium's job is to s«? to it that the billions of defense contract money la scattered throughout the smaller manufacturing plants of the country so that the slump in normal peacetime business will be offset. Now that may look simple on paper but actually It Is a staggering job. There are some 25,000 plant* in the nation on which Washington has a fair amount of Information and maybe 160.000 more on which needed Information Is more or less lacking. A Dlffkalt Odium has come into this job cold, late in the defense effort. Billions in contracts have already been let, mostly to big manufacturers. Priorities are already channelling the supplies needed for defense. Starting a redistribution of contracts and supplies now. without upsetting the apple cart, is something of an assignment! Already, congressmen worried about their constituents' businesses and jobs, businessmen, lawyers, representatives of chambers of com* merce, are swarmlng-over the divl- sipn of contract distribution. What those gloomy former associates of Od say is that no superman ran prevent an enormous amount, of. trouble for manufacturers and workers in normal peacetime industries. There sits Od. He is supposed to do something about it. "How handy for anybody hi or out of the government needing an alibi," they say. ."Watch 'em make 19 Rustle. 20 Rrvernite 21 Sport with .<• words 2.T Run. 24 Muficol note. 26 Eyes dourly. 28 One hundred nnd one. 29 Trap. ?.2 Night before. 33 Gloss. 33 South American quadruped. 37 Reaches across. 38 Pictured Kentucky 45 Ocean. 47 Measure. 4S Article of furniture. 49 Tehee department . r '"> Girl's name. 52 Restaurant (French). 53 Bomb that does not explode. 54 Italian royal house. 56 Negative.

So it will be a mighty Interesting tiling to watch. But even the optimists say no one must expect the Impossible. There must be, to get this defense Job done, an enormous amount of dislocation. All Odium's office can do Is spread the work where possible, thereby bringing more plants into the effort, expediting defenat production and keeping people at work, Delaware's population increased from 3SM»0 in 1WO to 264,603 in th» 1MO omsua. i Child Custody Dispute Token to High Court SPRINGFIELD.

She hadn't mixed m city life for years. One could tell that from the cut of her black dresses and her trick hats and the way she belittled city things to the summer folks. She considered her life in the town house during the winter M a necessary hibernation and returned to the lake before anyone else. And 1 could see that Denny and handsome Officer John Antler were -mulling those fwcts over when they* came in after taking care of things at the dock. While they had been down there I had •put—Maudie- to bed wiihout — too much trouble. The stiff drtnk Denny had poured down her was making her sleepy and she was as gentle as a child, and terribly grateful for companionship. Maudie didn't want to be alone: a feeling I was becoming acquainted with here at peaceful Paradise Lake. "She was a nice old thing, Mary," she said while I hung up her clothes and gave her cold cream to rub on her sunburned face. I didn't want her to think about the tragedy any more if I could help it. "Now, Maudie. dear. I'm sure she w»s a nice old lady. But don't worry about it. You didn't know iier well, and don't start grieving." "She was a smart woman.. a wise woman. Wiser than most of vou think." 8he stared Into space, .he cream in little white gobs on her fat cheeks. "She knew too crr.;d tnink a'. h»; She just * movies never have taken the tirw to boost along youngsters with that sort of talent. "Bob Hope Is very funny. Yet lie's no movie creation.

"You get « lift out of a flesh and blood audience." he said, "and if you see you're going over, you can stretch out the laughs. In movies, •ou can just hope that what you hlnk is funny will be funny when t gets on the screen." Aerial Bomb to Signal Start of Duck Season SPRINGFIELD.

"I'll get you something to rat." I told him. While we s*t there I repeated Mnudie's remarks "She knows something, but she's so darn stubborn. Denny. Maybe you can make her talk. I know she suspect* someone, but it must be tMat she's decided she hasn't enough proof to come right out and put her finger on that person. "She's funny that w»y; I mean business and only ?uch insignificant things come to mind." I apologized. "But then I guess I haven't bt-en any too rational lately anyway.

Denny nodded "But. Mary, knowledge is a dangerous thing sometimes, and she may have something that's dynamite. She and Miss Millie must have gotten Uielr heads together the night she went there to phone after you found Cord's body. Maybe she only thinks she has something: you know her imagination.
