Russian Booby Traps There nrp pnnusrh differences in the current Russian /plan "for general disarmament and German unity to make tt.wortn a carerul iook. jbut. mere is aiso conswerauie evi-- dence that this new version is loaded with the usual Com- miinisf hnnbv trans. Thifs timft thp Russians abandon their standard call for a one-third cut in conventional arms, which would leave their • huge forces still heavily dominant. They accept the Western idea of a flat numerical ceiling which would equate their forces with those of the United States. However, they would - include Red China in the same equation. The Soviets also accept step-by-step disarmament, instead of demanding immediate destruction of all nuclear weapons, as they formerly did. They would not ask that a ban on atomic arms take effect until 75 per cent of the cut in regular, armaments had been completed. Nevertheless, as Western diplomats were quick to point out. the Russian plan is still crucially weak in the vital mat ter of enforcing disarmament. The heart of enforcement must be a rigid inspection system. Review of the Soviet proposals shows that they devote some seven paragraphs to the rights and powers of a suggested enforcement agency without ever saying plainly that inspectors should be allowed to roam everywhere to assure tnat forDidden weapons are not being made or stored. ' Until the Russians are ready to face up to real inspec tion, any other concessions, however interesting, must be classed as secondary. The Kremlin's suggestions on Germany are still more dubious. They propose immediate withdrawal of all occu- • pation forces except skeleton units which would stay until nnmcation. rney also ask tnat ail roreign military oases now held in Europe be evacuated. This would mean American withdrawal from all forward air and other bases in France and other Western countries, and Russian departure irom positions nem m tne satellite nations. This sounds like quite a concession. .But it cannot be forgotten that such withdrawals would take American forces out of Europe and back across 3000 miles of ocean, while Russian's armies still would be poised close to Europe's heart ana tne satemtes would remain under tirm Kremlin political control. . The Russians, of course, again propose that a unified Germany be neutral, and this time thev suesrest that, the uni fication matter be handled by the U.N.— figuring obviously mar. sentiment ior neutrality will De greater tnere than amons the Bis Four foreign ministers. But they want Big Four control of German police forces - through- the-whole country. This is one of their cleverest Doooy traps. Up to now Russia has been denied any shred of control, in West Germany. Big Four control would get them' in the door, and open the way to subversive and obstructive tactics, aimed at pulling "neutral" Germany into The disarmament plan very shrewdly states, too, that armaments should be frozen as of Dec. 31, 1954, which would prevent the scheduled rearmament of West Germany in the Allied cause. 1 There are still other booby traps, but we have looked at enough to gauge the plan. These seem like the proposals of ^ "*ve aiuiuju (.acnes to put m powerrui new lures, but still cling to their fixed goal of world conquest. Ruth Millett Going to Be a Working Wife? Take This Quick Quiz First f She is twenty-five years old, has i a good job and she plans to be married in June. Her problem is, should she give up her job when she marries or go On working for She says she likes her job and is afraid she wouldn't have enough to do with her time if she just stayed home all day in a small apartment. Before any girl tries to solve that problem she should ask herself several questions and answer them honestly and realistically. How does the man I am about to marry feel about my working? Why am I considering the idea of holding on to my job?

There would be fewer unhappy marriages If more girls gave adequate thought to the answer to those questions before they decided to combine marriage and a job.

"There's nothing detrimental to ir ever-loving profession in tb :ript or in the character," sb ild me, "and no actress will be ble to recognize herself." The career that Fay started two years ago after a 10 year absence from the screen is perking briskly with roles in "Queen Bee" anc "The Cobweb" and she's saying: "Thev're all interesting roles — far more interesting than I played before. I was a leading lady and there's nothing much you can d about that. You're trapped. Nothe roles have depth and I couldn't e happier." CORNELL WILDE and Jean Wal lace are costarring in their third movie, "Storm iear," but tney have no fear about the unwritten law that says a Mr. and Mrs. shouldn't put on double harness before a movie camera.

His family, therefore, may not have been eligible for survivors' payments under that law, stated Gerald W. Spencer, district manager of the local Social Security office. The 1954 amendments provide that a worker who died after 1939 and before Sept. 1, 1950, and had six quarters of coverage (IY2 years of covered work at any time after 1936) will now be considered to have been fully insured. Beginning September, 1954, benefits may be paid to his survivors, provided they now meet the other requirements of eligibility, including the filing of an application. (Benefits may not be paid under this provision to a former wife from whom the worker had been divorced or to the dependent widower of an insures woman.) An application for benefits should be filed promptly by the survivor since benefits may be lost by delayed filing. Spencer stated that nationwide, an estimated 240,000 survivors could become eligible for monthly benefit payments under this provision. In the seven counties serv iced by the Rockford Social Se curity district office, an estimated 400 survivors of workers who died before September, 1950, after acquiring six quarters of coverage, ould now be eligible tor benetit payments.

The Doctor Says This Speech Difficulty Shouldn't Cause Worry By EDWIN P. JORDAN, B1.D. a letter received from Mrs. G. She says, "My little 312-year-old boy talks a lot but quite a few of his words are not clearly pronounced. He drops his "s" saying "un" for sun "upper" for supper and the like. Some of my friends find it hard to understand what he says. Do you think he may be tongue-tied, and if so will you discuss it?" It seems to me that most, if not all, very small children have difficulty in learning to pronounce some words in our difficult language. The probabilities are that this 'little boy will pronounce more clearly as time goes on and the fact that your friends have difficulty in understanding him not too important at the moment and may be just as well at times. THE TERM "TONGUE-TIED" has pretty well gone out of use since there is rarely, if ever, any real physical abnormality of the tongue responsible for speech difficulties or problems of pronunciation. It is true that many youngsters dc have speech difficulties— of which stuttering is the most important—but these appear to be much more likely to be the result of emotional disorders than of any physical defect in the organs of When serious speech difficulties do occur much can usually be done if they are properly handled. Many universities or medical schools maintain speech centers where excellent advice can be obtained. The National Society for Crippled Children -and Adults, 11 South La-Salle Street, Chicago, has also taken an interest in the subject and distributes a pamphlet particularly designed for the parents of stutterers. SINCE STUTTERING is the most important speech defect a special word should be said about this condition. While its exact cause is not known it seems likely that some children are born predisposed and are said to be of the "stutterer-type. This does not mean that stuttering is inherited but rather that the susceptibility to this speech difficulty is inborn. It is also interesting that nearly five times as many boys stutter as girl3. Apparently, many who have the predisposition to stutter do not actually do so unless some shock Out Our Way or accident upsets their nervous THERE ARE TWO STAGES the development of stuttering. The chances of stopping tne troublt are much greater in the first stage than before anxiety and feelinj of inferiority have developed.

S. senators who favor federal government construction of a single, high, $3S8,ooo.uoo puonc power dam at Hells Canyon on the Snake River between Oregon and Idaho think thev have one, last, three montns cnance iu put jl They "have been casting fishy eyes on Federal Power Commission Examiner William J. Costello's recent order \\nnn wouia auinorize Idaho Power Co. to build a low, $90,000,000 dam at uie tsiowmess site above Hells Canvon. The company s application to ouuu i»o ouier low dams at Oxbow' and Hells Canyon-to cost an additional $100,000,000 —was denied. Costello has recommended that opponents of his order be given three months in which to prepare their case before final hearing by the full Federal Power Commission. There are about three months left Ln the present session of Congress. If the 30 senators— mostly Democrats led by Oregon Senators Wayne Morse and Richard Neuberger— can put over their high dam bill in this time, they can stop the low dams. Otherwise the public power advocates will have to take their case to court and delay action for a new try alter 1956. TO THEIR SURPRISE AND DISMAY, advocates of the high dam have found that Costello's provisional order contains many arguments in favor of the high dam. At one point in his 75-page boildown of over 20,000 pages of testi-money in hearings Uiat began over two years ago, Costello writes: ". . . the facts seem to point to the inescapable conclusion that with the marked and substantial advantage \of the government's credit, the high dam would be dollar for dollar the better investment and the .more nearly ideal development of the Middle Snake." In spite of this, Costello recommended that the one, low, Idaho Power Co. dam be licensed for construction. He reached this conclusion on the basis of what is being interpreted as a purely political judgment. In brief it is that the Hells Canyon high dam proposal has already been presented to Congress in 1950, 1951 and 1953 and been turned down each time. IN THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION, Secretary of Interior Oscar Chapman supported the project, originally put forward by Army Corps of Engineers in 1947. In the present administration. Secretary of Interior Douglas McKay has withdrawn government support. On the economic aspects of the case, the Costello provisional order reports that for the Idaho Power Co. Brownlee dam, power cost would be 7.6 mills per kilowatt hour. For the three low dams the power cost would be 6 6 mills per kwh. On these facts Costello comments: "When one realizes that the Bonneville Power Administration sells large amounts of firm power at about 2.0 mills per kwh., it is difficult to see where in the northwest power will be salable at triple the Bonneville rate." IT WAS APPARENTLY FOR THIS reason that Costello disapproved the three-dam plan. He approved only the Brownless project which will produce power for sale in the Idaho Power Co.'s own "The really paradoxical aspect of the whole matter," comments Costello, "is that there is a crying need for firm power additions in the northwest, in view of the lagging program of development by the federal government and the steadily growing loads." The high dam would furnish more surplus power to the Bonneville grid. The big obstacle which the high dam has to overcome is that it is a huge public power project which would require a tremendous outlay of the taxpayers' money. Because of the government's lower interest rates, lower taxes and no need to show a profit, it freezes out private enterprise competition.
