Lomriktn, acting chief of the Soviet Pre.<« Department, contended last night the United Stales lives under censorship and that White House news conferences arc "the biggest propaganda in the world." (Lomakin, then Soviet consul- general in New York, was expelled from the United States last Aug. 20. The State Department accused him of misinforming his own government, attempting to mislead the American people, and having "abtis- cci" his official position in other ways. The charges resulted from the case of Mrs. ok-sana Kasenklna, Russian school teacher who had leaped from a window of the Soviet consular building In New York a week earlier, suffering serious Injuries. She said she hsti been held prisoner In the consulate.) Lomnkin talked with foreign correspondents at the first diplomatic reception given by FVtrcign Minister Andre! Y. since he succeeded V. M. Molotov. He asserted the correspondents of TUKS, the official Soviet news agency, never .see American officials. He recalled that he once was a newsman in the United Stales, and said tlint as such he never saw an American official. 1'Riss correspondents arc Iree to move aboi^ anywhere in the United Slate- 1 ; to do their reporting.

COURIER NEWS * WE, THE WOMEN How to Meet More Men? It May Be Wrong Question By Ruth Mlllctt NKA. Staff Wrilff "How cad I meet more men?" R 25-year-old .stenographer writes me. She says she left her small home town a year ago to go to work in - city. Because her question 1s asked so often by girls who h«v« reached marrying age without any definite prospects of marriage I am answering It in print. Or, rather, I'm going to point out that I think those girls are asking the wrong question, The secret of Betting married isn't usually i n managing to meet more men—unless a girl just doesn't know any eligible men at all. For most girls, the secret of how to find a husband lies In seeing husband material-In the men she already knows. Let's talk about Mary B. for a minute. Mary knows half a down young men who have asked her for dales In the last few months. Two she turned down without giving them a chance. One because he hasn't had as good an education us she, The other because he isn't tnll enough to meet her spe- c'iliculkms. * Of the four she has dated, there Isn't one who doesn't have something wrong with him, according- to Mnvy. She thinks one is "conceited." She doesn't believe another will over "amount to anything." One Is 10 years older than she, which Mary promptly divided was too much difference in age. And the fourth lias been divorced, so Mary—although attracted to him—Is sttn that.If he has had one niarrlag« failure he's a bad bet, matrimonially. Prospect* Gone by the Boat* Now while Mary Is sitting around wishing she knew how to meet more men. she Is going to let «ix pros- iwcts get, away without ever giving herself time hi find out whether she could love one of them or not. Probably all six of the young men will eventually find wives. Mary may even feel a pang of regret some day if she happens to meet up with one of them happily married to a girl who saw his possibilities nnd overlooked his shortcomings. For that's the real trouble with most girls who are forever wishing they could meet more men. They »r« supercritical. They miMt realize that they aren't perfect themselves yet they are holding out for a husband who measures up to a list of readymade qualifications which they carry around In their minds. Qirls like that often.end up bj never marrying at all, or after let- ling their best marrying years slip by. marrying a man not even in a class with some of the men who weren't good enough for them live to 10 years earlier.
