'This is the way they The United States will make a "token" devaluation of the dollar against gold. West Germany ~ and Japan will revalue their currencies upward by 12-13'per cent and France and Britain will push the value of the -franc and pound sterling up by about.4 to 5 per cent. The Dutch -guilder is likely to keep in line with the West German Mark. The Italian lira is expected to follow the pound and the" French franc. The British experts hope such a deal wall'be followed quickly by a lifting of President Nixon's 10 uer cent imports surcharge.

The French weekly news magazine L'Express reports the Jnited States is building a colossal" Air Force base in the western Pacific. The base, t says, is to replace Okinawa irhich is scheduled to be handed ack to Japan next year. L'Express said the base was eing constructed in the Marshall islands and quoted Japa- isse workmen as pinpointing it n Majuro atoll not far from he former . nuclear testing grounds of Bikini.

They expect to receive similar- assurances from the Soviet Union during tiie forthcoming -isit of Soviet President Nicolai A. Podgorny. The Chinese Nationalists have not softened in any-way their opposition to a two-China policy as advocated by the United States in the United Nations. But they have changed tactics. It is, therefore, a safe bst that if Peking is admitted to the United Nations and Taipei is not expelled, Taipei will not walk out. They hope that if they stay, the Chinese Communists will reject the proffered membership. The Nationalists will not admit such a policy change but it was implicit in Foreign Minister Chow Shu-kai's depart- Dusty Memories Jhose Good VI' Days' . —e——-— . - •. ^ . • • Demo Party Chairman Optimistic For 72 Despite Party 'Paranoia' ing remark as he left for the United States last month: We will meet 10,000 changes with 20 000 changes."

(TJPI) -Some top Democrats, .are concerned over, lingering' 1 , traces .of a "suicidal, complex", within the party. Among them is Democratic National Chairman Lawrence F.

His-strategy for 1972 is shaping up as pretty much of-a repeat of 1970, with heavy emphasis on pocketbook issues. HIGH CREDIBILITY He exnected the credibility of President Nixon also to be high on the Democratic list, with stress on the President's reversals of previous positions or. handling the economy and on relations with Mainland China.' The Vietnam War will be an issue but not among the top ones, in O'Brien's view. O'Brien does not believe that Nixon has been able to blunt the economic issue—high unemployment, high prices and the [ike—by .his adoption of a wage- price freeze.' .O'Brien cites public opinion 'polls showing overwhelming support of the freeze, ' first proposed by Democrats, 'but only a slight boost in the President's own standings.' . . O'Brien has several important recommendations for the party. He' warns that the Democrts must show good faith at all levels in', adopting more open,- equitable procedures for the selection of delegates to the national convention and the operation of the convention itself. Many Democrats fear that any smell of smoke-filled rooms would be fatal .to the presidential candidate's chances. Better Forget That Mastodon Steak; May Contain Mercury! • ; NEW YORK (UPD-Haye a craving for mastodon steak? Have a care. It could contain a prohibitive amount of mercury. Tests made recently on a mastodon' bone, approximately 15,000 years old, revealed a mercury content of one part million. The new federal houses of food supply: fish'and animals. For example, fish caught in., the 1930s and preserved, in the New York State museum, and other nsh taken from Lake Champlain in 1932 and from Lake Ontario, in 1939 reveal about the .same mercury levels as freshly By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — Memory is the, greatest bargain in life. • It' costs -nothing, 'requires no upkeep, > and -lasts as long as you do. .It- can entertain and amuse you in moments dear or dour.

You "have a good store of them yourself ;if you can look bacE and remember when— Bob'.Hope was a promising young song and dance man. People stayed up later to get a new station on'the radio than they do now to watch the late show on television. Folks-rarely bothered to lock the front door unless they were going away on a long vacation. Automobiles and phonographs had one thing in common—they wouldn't" start until they, had been hand-cranked. , You could tell a girl parochial student by her fine penmanship.

Your knowledge of local gossip picked up immediately when you had a party line telephone installed. A fellow knew pretty wel whether his girl really cared for him by whether she took the trouble to put nuts in the homemade fudge she fixed every Saturday afternoon. Every small town had a least two restaurants—one for the decent folk, the other for the riffraff who often shot poo during working hours. The height of luxury was a shiny brass bed. A doctor always stayed for a second cup of coffee in the kitchen of a home where he de- Ivered twins. No matter how many -boys there were in" the .family,' Santa Glaus left, only one sled at Christmas.' '. .You could buy a serviceable pocket watch for one dollar. And you didn't have to pay a sales tax' either.- You could -walk down almost any street in America, and sniff the wonderful smell of fresh bread being baked. • A small boy divided the calendar into two periods—The day the circus was in town and the rest of the year. . You always felt a bit cheated .when you went to the ball park. because they had the nerve to charge a dime for -a nickel hot dog. QUIT BRAGGING You were pretty sure the honeymoon was over for a young couple when they quit bragging about how much they had been impressed by the view at Niagara Falls. A fellow who worked hard enough could stay married and hold down a steady job even if he had dandruff and useda body deodorant only every third day. All the kids in the, gang agreed that the meanest mother was the one who made her son go out himself to a backyard tree and hack off the branch she intended to'.switch him with. Children didn't feel underprivileged if they had to walk a mile to get to school. IF IT TAKES a student to know what's best for students, William Lynch of Bremerton, Wash., should make a name for himself in education circles. The 18-years-old, a 1971 high school graduate, upset a 60-year-old incumbent school board president in a primary contest. Lynch, who describes himself as a "progressive conservative," is unopposed in the final election for the seat. POWERFUL PLUNGER'CLEARS.
