No one is perfect, but a sneak can't even fool himself: Hfe that covereth his transgression .sHall not prosper, but whoso con- f^eth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.—Prov. 28::13. and «n sQUAl: pnrtsur with the Pmkiettt In government. TOO Often In the past that partnership has been interpreted as complete subfi^ience to White House wishes by one group, and opposition for opposition's sake by another. But the Job facing the 79th congress calls for considerably higlier motives. The people have made their wishes reasonably clear as to what sort of a world and country they want after the war. The Administration is likewise making clear what is required of the people in war if those wishes are to be attained. It is the duty of the new congress to translate those mandates into laws and recommendations through thinking that is national and international rather than regional, an.d American rather than partisan. TBE IOIU'REGISTER; THURgPAT EVENINa JAWTTARY 11. 1945. ^ the Blue Danube Wkltz "CALCULATED BISK" Developments in the battle of the Belgian "bulge" have now proceed- fri to the point .where conclusions inny be drawn in the light of a jcnionable perspective. At least two of them may be stated safely: 1. The Germans did a neat job of developing at least a partial ".strategic .siuTJrise," and they exhibited more reserve power than anybody thought they had left. But— 2. Elsenhower was NOT caught completely off guard and need apologize to no one for anything. He has Jjeen able to contain the offensive completely, to "channelize" It, Htraiglit west so that it finally (.anie lo a halt without going anywhere, without overrunning any city of important strategic value and without capturing a single major .supjjly dump. The net result of the venture is still likely to cost the fiermnn.s more than the Allies. » « • It .should be remembered that all military strategy Is based on what ilu? KCDcrttls call calculated risk. 'I'licre I N bound to be risk in any maneuver: the whole point of good .'ilrat'-);y Ls to calculate the risk, avoid it where the percentage is unfavorable and take it where the percentage Is good. Elsenhower knew perfectly well '.lint he had a weak sector in Bel- ^'ium. But you can't string an army along a 500 -mile front and have it Invincibly strong every mile of the way. He had to take "calculated risks" here and there. By now it seems clear that he was surprised not by the offensive or the location of it but only by its strength: In spite of this one miscalculation, he had his armies in position where they were able to swing into action in time to jjrevent disaster. The accomplished fact that the offensive was bottled up In time is proof enough that Els­ enhower didn't miscalculate his ji.sks too much. MORE ABOUT FOOD Fruit and vegetable buyers in the New York City area are threatening a new kind of blow against the black market. They have notified produce receivers that if Illegal practices don't stop by Jan. 15, they will apply what they call a "blitz boycott." This will be a concerted agreement to refrain from buying a scarce or desirable item if receiv -i ers are asking above-ceiling prices or forcing the tie-in purchase of imwanted produce with the sale. The buyers will select one Item at a time that is too perishable to re ship elsewhere. The produce will rot, and the receiver will take a dead loss.' It's as simple as that. Overcharges and tie-in sales have been going on for more than a year. It has been a spreading evil, and the OPA hasn't had enough inspectors to stop It. Buyers have chosen to put up with it rather than ieop- nrdjise their soiu-ces of .scarce supply. Protection for both retailei-s and consumers from such gouging is long overdue. And it looks as if the "blitz boycott" might provide it. Perhaps if buyers in other big city markets would take a tip from their New York brethren, the frult- nnd-vegetable black market at least might be considerably curtailed.

Bachelor's Burden THE NEW CONGRESS To the members of the new con- I should like to offer-not good luck, but good wishes, and the hope that they will employ wisely the considerable accumulation of intelligence which they represent. Certainly none of our preceding 78 congresses has. had greater need of wi.sdom, high ethics and respon- .sible statesmanship. No other con- Rres.s has had greater need to approach its tasks with the proud Imt humbling consciousness that it is an. instrument of the whole people GAS CITY, Jan. 10.— The W. S. C.

On the morning of, the lifth Major Lawrence walked to his office. He wore a ^lum-colored square- cut coat which reached to nis kn.ecs and flared out from the woiat downward. His knee breeches; were of black broadcloth. His \cst, or doublet, was of dark yeilow silk with flowery designs on" il. There were lace ruffles on hit! shirt front and at his wrists. Ke wore a three-cornered cocked hr.i. At his side he Wore a sword, buckled aroimd his waist, beneath | tense of attending to his personal affairs was one :>f the polite fictions Ox the nousehoid. He was accustomed to spend these quiet afternoons in pipe •smoking and reading, or in nlaying solitaire. Sometimes he would take a nap on the sofa. In the course of the afternoon the Major would do a good deal of drinking. On this wintry day a fire of cedar logs blazed in the huge fireplace. Ill that era grates were unKnown, so the fir Was laid directly on th square stones that formed the surface of thr Dearth. Above the flreplac there ran across the chimney a thick, heavy mantel. Ai each end ot it stood his. coat. As a protection from , a candle in a silver candlestick. lh<; weather he carried over shoulders a whittle or shawl. The Majqr was an importer; he had correspondents in the West Indies, and on the African coast. Frbm the islands of the West In- diec came molasses (to be rnade i.itp rum), raw sugar, and various tropical fruits. From the coast Oi .Africa his ship brought slaves —not to New York, but to South Carolina—for at that period black slaves had become so numerous in New York that their prices haf" collapsed and the trade in them was no longer profitable. He did not have much to do at hi:*place ot business on this snowy dav, so he returned home shortly atipr noon and had his dinner. As.soon as the meal was over he v.erit into his library, leaving v.-ord that he .was not to be disturbed by anyone, as he had much work to do. He remembered suddenly, however, that this was the lifth of the month, so he turned to_-Dykins, his man servant, and sai'd, "That does not apply to Miss Frgser. If she comes bring her in at once." • » « 'pHE Major had no work' to do ]f\ the library and Dykins knew it. His seclusion for two or three afternoons a week on the pre- - ' —— . : The Major and his wife n&f a handsome anc* valuable cdllection of silverware whicn they kept in a locked closet on the second floor. In colonial times banks did not exist in America, and the unnecessary amount of silverware in the homes of the well-to-do took the place of bank accounts. It could always be turned into money quickly. Besides the bookcases filled with solemn-looking tomes the library contained the Major's desk, a mahogany table, a sofa covered with, flpwery designs, and six chairs. * * * 'T^E desk was so typical of the 18th century tha it might as well be selectee as the ;nost representativvr piece of furniture of that era. It was th kinu of desk that was used by Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan Edwards and thousands of lawyers, doctors and men of business. It was narrow and tall. The writing surface was hardly wide enough for two sheets of paper. The upright Dortion rose to the neight of about six feet. It hac" glass doors and several shelves for papers and books and drawers in the lower part of the desk which could be locked. The materials for writing lay in a recess on the. same level as tbe writing surface. There was an ornate inkwell ot brass, a metal holder containing three goose- quill pens, and a silver shaker of fine sand to De used in t>iotting the freshly written sheets. Blotters were unknov.m and jiand v.-s.i used instead. On the finely polished nahos- any table in the center of thn room stood a bowl of long- siemmed pipes, a silver tobacco box, and u large candelabnmi with branches for si:: candlen. Also a flint-and-.steel ure-makei-, which was u.sed occa.sionally foi- lighting pipes when the candle .T were not yet lighted and there was no lire on the hearth. The flre-maker consisted of a piece ot" flint neld immovably in place by metal prongs. The flint could be struck by a hammer like that belonging to a musket, by cocking the hammer and pulling a trigger. The spark, thus created, fell into a little metal box filled with cotton, or iint. of fine v/ood shavings. The smoker then tran.-- ferred the burning lint to the bowl of his pipe. • • • jQYKINS knocked at the door, opened it a few inches and peeped. "Miss Fraser has come,' he said. It was then about o o'clock. The Major replaced the booh he wa.": reading and took another irom a bookcase near at hand. He had been reading Aphra Behn's novel, The iVnn, or the Perjured Beauty, and the book he took in its place was Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress He did not consider the gabLy and flamboyant Mrs. Behn's piece of fiction immoral but it was light and amusing, and after all Mis.^ Matilda Fraser was a teacher of young girls, so he thought it better, as a matter of policy, to have her find nim engaged in a more serious occupation than the reading of a trashy novel.

Duree thinks the cigarette shortage Ls a great idea. It Is because of this shortage, he says, that fh-es caused by smokers in this city dropped from 216 in the last six months of 1943 to 122 for the same period in 1944. Celery leaves as well as stalks give fine flavor when chopped and heated in fat. Use only about a fourth as much chopped onion as celery. Celery salt is good seasoning too.

(AP)—The only interest State Finance Director George B. McKlbljing has in the cigarette shortage is from a money angle. The non-smoking state official said the shortage cost the state $800,000 last year because 800,000.000 fewer cigarettes were sold compared with 1943. The two cent per tax collection totals ranged; from an average of tl,000.000 monthly to a low of $37,000 In December^ Your Uptown H. G. W. STORE Flour • • Flour • • Sugar Cure .
