' Fdr those who have forgotten the taste of steak, Chicago provides news that will be good if it is true. Livestock production is increasing so rapidly that cattle raisers and stockyards experts say the meal shortage is about ended. Beef processors are turning out high- quality meat at a higher rate than in any November for four years. Along with more ample supplies will come lower prices, it is predicted. Skepticism about this must be tempered by the current trend in pork, which is selling below ceiling prices. What is happening to meat is an example of the operation of the law of supply and demand. High prices for pork and beef led to increased production, which is now forcing down prices. What is good news for the consumer is bad news for operators of cattle-fattening farms and hog- raisers. Feed is still costly and the fall In beef and pork prices will squeeze producers, who must also compete with large imports from abroad. But the cattle and hog men will not be in trouble long. Feed prices will drop--or meat prices will rise again. But for a brief interlude at least it seems probable that steaks and beef roasts will be forthcoming at prices somewhat lower than those that have prevailed recently. The Search For Security The amazing growth of life insurance in the last fifteen years has been one of the less publicized and more spectacular phases of the universal search for security and ease in old-age. In 1935, life insurance in effect was just 100 billion dollars. By the end of 1952. the manager of the insurance department of the United Slates Chamtei- of Commerce figures, insurance In effort will reach 300 billion. That is at the -rate of two thousand dollars for every man, woman and child in the United States. However, that is only half the story. The same informant figures that by the end of next year, government insurance in force will be even more, a figure of 325 billion. That includes life insurance in force under the Social Security Act, the Veterans Administration, the Railroad Retirement Act and the Civil Service provision. The astounding growth of government insurance was presented as a sign that socialization of insurance was progressing at an alarming rate. However, growth of public and private insurance have gone hand in hand. Both have benefited from the fact that the national income has trebled in the same time, that life expectancy has been stretched by twenty years, and that people are more willing to provide for themselves out of their own earnings than to become public charges in their old-ajfe.

I--President Truman's castigalion of press associations for their dispatches from Korea on the lull in the fighting there, which was mistakenly interpreted as an informal cease-fire, is a conspicuous and regrettable example of how officialdom often seeks to blame the press for its own mistakes. Operating under difficult conditions of communications, war correspondents know only what is ' happening in the localities where they happen to be stationed, and they report what they see. The censors, who are military officers, passed the dispatches about the lull in the fighting. Now, the President was within his rights in denying that a cease- fire had been agreed upon, but he would have been practicing the same kind of objectivity which he sometimes complains that the press doesn't give him if he had pointed out that no doubt the dispatches about the informal cease-fire were based on conscientiously reported" facts at the place where they were gathered- Thus General Van Fleet, commander of the U. N. ground forces in Korea, while denying that any cease-fire order had been given, now says in a formally issued statement: "Amplifying the original statement, I can say that certain military instructions were di.ssermnat- ed from this headquarters to Corps and division levels. War correspondents' reports indicate that when these instructions were passed out to some lower command elements, there was distortion of the meaning in the text of these instructions. Action is being taken to clarify instructions for those officers and enlisted men who misinterpreted the directive. "I am not at liberty to disclose the contents of the instructions, which are related to future operations of the 8th army. I can definitely say, however, that there is no mention made in the text of ordering a cease-fire in Korea." Since "military instructions" were misinterpreted by officers in the aimy, and reporters on the spot reported what they obtained from such officers, it ill becomes the President to criticize the war correspondents. The President, at his Thursday conference at Key, re- Weddings man observed, was put out by Roy Howard and was a fake. Mr. Howard happens now to be the head of the Scripps-Howard papers, which have at various times criticized the Truman policies but in 1918 he cabled from Brest, France, to the United Press in New York a dispatch about the signing of an armistice, sad it caused premature celebrations from coast to coast. It does seem that Mr. Truman might have familiarized him- s.lf with the facts about that episode before implying that Mr. Howard had intentionally written on November 7, 1918, what turned out to be a premature story about the armistice that was signed four days later. This correspondent was in Brest just two weeks after the armistice was signed and. asked Admiral Henry B. Wilson, U. S. N., commandant of the American Naval forces in that vicinity, about the origin of Mr. Howard's dispatch. The Admiral said unhesitatingly that he had received the information over the telephone from one of tbe Naval attaches in the American Embassy in Paris and, believing it to be authentic, had passed it on to the fleet. What happened was that someone in Paris misunderstood information received over the telephone from the field headquarters, where emissaries from the German army were meeting with Allied officers to arrange the armistice. The Admiral said that he gave the information to Mr. Howard believing it to be news that everybody would have within a matter of minutes or hours. The explanation was then cabled by this correspondent to newspapers in the United States. That's the story of what Mr. Truman now calls a "fake." It was a piece of conscientious reporting done on the spot by Mr. Howard and illustrates the difficulties which newsmen face when they report what they see and hear, only to be told later that either they shouldn't have reported it at all or that they were reporting inaccurately. The difficulties of reporting during a war period are understandable, but there is no excuse for some of the barriers to the free flow of information encountered in reporting in Washington where technical denials and equivocally written ofticial statements fre- misleading impres- dCIBTJ?

Schedule Against You The daily schedule, with both of you working different hours, is enough to create tension in itself.

It estimates that 36,000 children will be in the school system next fall, twice the school enrollment in J946. The county has built more than 200 new class-rooms in the past two years and now has 33 school projects under construction to house 8.070 students. Approximately 33,000 pupils are being taught by 1,200 teachers this year. Nearly one-fourth of the teachers are new to Montgomery County and 19 supervisors are engaged in orienting them. Children are transported to school in more than 100 busses controlled by county and State regulations, In addition to the usual schools also use audio-visual materials and students this year are learning by television through participation in a weekly TV ptogram.

These faults you must learn to live with: they're very hard to change. The big difference in your ages probably makes your husband look upon you as a child who hasn't the authority lo ask questions, nor the sense to solve problems. Analyze yourself. Decide what poor traits you have--such as nagging--and change them. On one point you should be insistent. Hubby's visits to his ex- wife should be stopped. They're doing no one any good and are likely to make considerable trouble, particularly if the ex-wife's husband disapproves of th»m too. You figure out what makes tne difference between the difficult times and your happy times together. Eliminate the things that make the difficulties, and work more on expanding your happiness. Dear Miss Dix: Can you help me w i t h my problem? I am a widower of 40, in love with a girl 28. I have proposed to her but she won't give me a definite acceptance. She goes out with me once a week but also goes out with a fellow 30 years old. Occasionally she even breaks a date with him to go out with me. I've got an idea she thinks I'm too old for her. In the meantime, a woman I know who is 39 keeps hinting that I'd make a good husband for her. Sha's pretty, well-educated but after all she isn t a girl anymore, though quite attractive. She might make a good wife except for her age. Do you think I ought to stop seeing the girl and ask this older woman to marry me or what? M.D. Answer: You certainly are inconsistent! You're disgusted because you think a 28-year-old girl considers you too old for her at 40: yet you in turn consider someone 39 ripe for the old-age home. Your romance with the young lady does not seem to be progressing too favorably, and I think you're entiiely too wrapped up with the idea of marrying youth. From an age standpoint, the other woman would certainly be a better match for you, but must also have attractions other than the fact that she's "willin.". Better break off with the young woman; if she does care for you, the idea of losing you might help make up her mind. Then take another look around. But don't be in too much hurry to marry anyone, least of all the "old hag" of 39, unless you're very sure of yourself. Released by the Bel! Syndicate Bridge : : : : : : : : : : BY H. T.

Big news of this is that President Truman isn't going to run. Evidence to this effect has been growing ever since he announced at a press conference that he had made up his mind about being a candidate but that he would not reveal-his decision until after the first of the year. Several prominent Democratic senators, who should have the inside dope, have stated publicly that they didn't think that the President will run. And the same story has been leaking out all over, from the President's personal friends and from party officials. However, the slightly different twist to the story of his intentions, which comes again from the usual excellent source, very close to the President, is to the effect that he has not really made up his mind yet, in spite of what he has said. This source says that President Truman is now undergoing one of the most severe mental struggles he has ever suffered, trying to make up his mind. He is said to be plagued by several conflicting emotions, the strongest of which is a feeling of infallibility which has been building up in him ever since he first became President, and which solidified when he won in 1948. Only Democrat Who Could Win Further he has fought hard and cleverly for all of his policies, with a fair degree of success as far as political and legislative strategy goes This has increased his conviction that he is just about the only man in the party who not only can win the election, but guide the party's destinies successfully for the next four years. Opposing this feeling in his mind are reasons and emotions telling him not to run again. He no doubt believes that he could quit and go down in history as a fairly successful President of the United States. He also knows that the perilous four years ahead, with terrible pitfalls for the chief executive, could change his place in history from good to bad if he made a mistake. On top of that, as has been reported, are the feelings of Mrs. Truman on the question, and her great influence with him. She does I to try again. not want another four years in th! White Htnwe for herself. She coul, sacriA'eejittiat feeling and go alonj vith an attempt for another tern] But it is reported now that she "j convinced that another four yeav would harm her husband's re'pij tation and health. And she wii not compromise with those thingi_ Those who know her say is deeply shocked with recent scar?" dais being revealed in the Admirj istration. She is deeply religiot/ and appalled at the thought of hd husband's reputation being tainte' with any of it i In other words, she Is putiin all possible pressure on him nt to run again. And she could hav- the last say in the matter. Would Be Elder Statesman Also in the balance tending * influence him against running the very pleasant prospect of pla ing the role of elder statesman. H! is naturally gregarious and woul! enjoy a more relaxed life with hr friends than the one he now ec dures as President. j He could still be a party strategist and main cog, even out of ofi fice.
