DEAR DIARY: JANUARY 12, 1949 Today we girls at the office got in a huddle and decided wed simply have to tell the new girl to use Deodorants. I've read that people become accustomed to their own smells and do not realize ho%v much they offend others. We drew straws and I picked the long one so I'm trying to think up a tactful approach to this delicate subject. Naturally I want her to try Luzier's family of deodorants which the Luzier Cosmetic Salon sells. The liquid Deodorant is an anti-perspirant but I'm crazy about the Cream Deodorant. It simply vanishes into the skin and serves to check perspiration. It isn't sticky. Feme Makinson said it wouldn't be. I am going to tuck a carton of the Powder Deodorant into Mother's birthday box, then I'll do the same for Dad when his birthday rolls around. Luzier's make both cream and powder deodorants for men as well as for women. Hope that I think of a good way to bring up the subject of BO tomorrow. Goodnight, PAT.

Does this make you suffer from pain, feel so nervous, tired— at such times? Then DO try Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to relieve such symptoms. Plnkham's has a grand soothing effect on one of woman's most important organs! 1YDIAE. PINKHAM'S World Union Suggestion of Lecturer "If we want peace without tyranny and with decency, it is our duty to pursue it," Norman Cousins, editor of the Saturday Review of Literature, told a Woman's club audience Tuesday evening in the First Methodist church. "What we are doing now may win the war to corne, but it will not avert it," he said. "It is the job of the people of the United States, not the elected officers who come and go, to propose on a high moral level that all nations come together under the rule of law administered within the United Nations—a United Nations which is dying now of malnutrition and anemia. We can give it the blood and bones it needs—pose a preponderance of force. Let'us say we are willing to do without the veto. Let us go along with as many nations as will go along with us, hoping that the advantage of membership will be as apparent to those outside as to those within." Mr. Cousins who has just returned from Europe said that communism has reached its highwater mark there and already has begun to recede. "The crops this fall were 40 per cent better than optimistic expectations of 6 or 8 months ago hoped. Despite strikes, the people are working and working hard. The Marshall plan, while not yet a going concern, has begun to prime the pump, at least psychologically. "But I do not think we are any farther from war than we were 6 months ago. No one can make a flat prediction on whether or not there will be a war. A momentum is being built up in Germany which is more -important than any decision made in Washington or Moscow. In this momentum, the decisions arc being made for both sides. Berlin could have a civil war at any moment. Neither America or Russia are bluffing. Both are pursuing a get-tough policy and any incident may touch off a war." Mr. Cousins said that the American people do not know where they stand and recalled wondering, as he walked through bombed-out Berlin a short time ago, if the American people knew how close they came to being in the same situation as Berlin, or how close they are to war. or that the U. S. is supremely vulnerable to atomic attack against' which there is no defense, or that there is no secret to the atomic bomb, or that they, too, are living behind an iron curtain, a curtain of misinformation. Mr. Cousins described the exactness of the schedule which is maintained by the air lift to Berlin and said that when it comes to a techincal operation or a feat of engineering or the greatest aviation operation of history, which is what the air lift is, we are magnificent, but when it comes to making peace, we are far from magnificent. "Today, in the absence of a strong United Nations, it is impossible for the United States and Russia to agree. No proposal, however reasonable, either one makes, can be accepted by the other." He described how the currency system in Berlin operates with both east marks and west marks as legal tender, but with different values, which makes for chaos, and pointed out that it was failure to agree over the administration of the currency which necessitated the continuance of the air lift. "Future historians may conclude that war was a part of the make-up, if not the nature of The FABRIC Co.

C E. Oeschger Presents Talk on Democracy "The Genius of Democracy" was the subject of the talk given Dy C. E. Oeschger to the mem- jers of the Wa-Tan-Ye club on Tuesday noon at the Cerro Gordo lotel. The speaker likened the strug- le between ideologies, today, to ,he evil man who meets a good man. The evil man is uncomfortable; he trys to bring the good man down to his level, aad, if he is not successful, ne trys to de;troy him. "There are 3 ideologies which are vying for the acceptance of the people of the world: Socialism, wherein there is no customer Control of the distribution of oods; communism, which is born of hunger and poverty and which seeks to divide the available goods among all and no one has enough, and capitalism, which seeks to provide a plenitude so that every man, that with each war he fought. P r °vide a plenitude so that every man reduced his margin for error one may have enough according and his area for recovery, until to his aDin .ty to produce," he said, l * n tne United States which finally he fought one war from which he could not recover. That final war did not represent so much the death wish of mankind as it represented man's attempt to as ™ Ul . - x , =adapt himself to his environment \ vorker m any other country un- rather than to conquer it. ''A world government can be built not by a struggling United Nations, but by one with compul- sory'jurisdiction backed by a preponderance of force." He spoke of the steps we have avoided which could have helped—asking China not to press for a world union at the close of the war, insisting on the veto, rejecting Britain's proposal that nations come together to analyse the weaknesses of the United Nations. Of the atomic bomb. Mr. Cousins said a group of scientists had come together and explained to Mr. Truman about the atomic bomb, that it was not just another weapon of war, but something as important as the discovery of fire and asked him not to take the responsibility for setting a precedent in the use of the bomb, so that its use in the future might be outlawed. "We couldn't wait to drop the bomb," Mr. Cousins said. "I was sick with shame for my country for dropping it." He described his experiences during the Bikini test and said that 2 years and 5 months after Bikini in January 1949, the human race comes face to face with itself. "II is late, but not too late to try for peace." he said. Following Mr. Cousins talk, a question period was conducted with Mrs. R. E. Smiley, president of the club, in charge. Preceding the lecture, musica selections were provided by a quartet composed of Mrs. Harry R. Wolf, Mrs. Scott Smith. Miss Marjorie Smith and Mrs. William Haynes. CENTRAL HEIGHTS P. T.
