TUESDAY, DECEMBER, 4, 1951 Marriage Is Popular Every so often, the Census Bureau comes Up with astonishingly interesting information deduced from the laborious data it assembled in its dragnet of a year ago. The latest set of anything but dry statistics reveal the growth of popularity of the institution of marriage in this country, despite the more widely publicized divorce evil. There has been a steady decline since 1890 in the proportion of unmarried persons. This has been due partly to marriage rates, which rose gradually until 1940, and then rapidly in the last decade; and to an increasing proportion o£ the population in the older age groups, where single persons are relatively few. Another factor has been the sharp decline in the teens, where single persons predominate, as children now in their teens were born in the Nineteen Thirties, when j birth rates were hammered down by the deprrv*ion. It would oe easy to get lost in the maze of supporting figures, but the important thing is that there are one-fourth more married people than ten years ago, and that this tribute to the soundness of the American home cannot be denied by the sensational divorces that make the headlines. Proxy Air Power How much the Soviet Union Is in the war in Korea may be judged from the fact that overnight, Communist China has become one of the major air powers of the world. It is flying 1,400 combat planes in Manchuria and North China, roughly haljf of them MIG 15s, pride of the Soviet aircraft arsenaL Since there is no doubt where these planes come from, Russian protestations of peace in the United Nations Assembly and in propaganda assemblages, is revealed as so much double talk. The Soviet' is in the same position in Korea as we were befoie entering World War II. when we were the arsenal of democracy supplying the Allies against Hitler. The difference is that we gave our aid openly and made no secret o£ our hatred of Nazism, while the Russians insist they are not supplying the Chinese Reds and their sole interest is to bring about pence.' General Hoyt S. Vandcnberp;, it $300. The face cf the tiny figure Is only two millimeters from fore head to chin. Wooster said the biggest collector he knows of is Doug Fairbanks' who, he estimates, has more than 15,000 figures worth "many" thousands of dollars. The Fairbanks collection includes examples of every regiment of the British, In dian and American armies. Wooster also has carved $2,500 chess sets of ivory. "Most of them," he said, "were bought by oil people from Texas or Oklahoma. From the way they talk about it, I don't think they know anything about chess." Wooster has had sonic odd orders. The State Department recently ordered some pike-helmeted German soldiers of the first world war. Wooster has no Idea why. He displayed an order from a southern collector which he said is typical for that region. It request-, ed $50 worth of Confederate officers' and troops mounted and on foot and $10 worth of dam Yankees." A man in Nashville once ordered Stonewall Jackson. By mistake, Wooster sent him Abe Lincoln. The man sent back an indignant protest, said it was a "cheap joke," never ordered another item. A woman once walked into Wooster s shop and ordered a figurine of a gorilla. She wanted the lead to resemble a man in a picture she supplied. Wooster did the job. "Two weeks later that same man walked in, screaming," Wooster said. "He said the gorilla was sent o him by his wife, who had lelt iim. He asked me to make a big sow." I refused. After all, we're not clowns. This is a serious business." Dr. Campbell Rites Thursday Dally Bread By REV. A PURNELL BAILEY We have done that which was our duty! 'Luke 17.10.) A liner was wrecked on a reef off the coast of New England a few years ago. The Coast Guard went to the rescue under the captaincy of an old seaman but with some young men on the crew. One of the young men frightened by the situation confronting them, turned a w h i t e face to the captam. "Sir," he said, "the wind is off shore and the tide is r u n n i n g oul. Of course we can go out, but what good will it do? Against the wind and the tide we cannot come back." The simple reply of the captain was, "Launch the bont. We have to go out. We don't have to come back." We have done t h a t which was our dutv! Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, says the increased enemy air activity can affect the outcome of the war in Korea. The "kill" is still ten to one in our favor, but the emphasis is not so much on combat, as it is on keeping the enemy from establishing airfields south of the Yalu. The area of air decision lies between the Yalu and the capital of North Korea, PyonRang. So long as w o control this area by foiling all attempts to establish enemy air bases there, we can keep command of the air and our ground forces are reasonably safe from air attacks.

Boyle Column By SAUL PETT (For Hal Boyle) NEW YORK, Dec. 4 i.-Pi--For more than 100 years, the family of August Wooster has pursued the same craft without rebellion in the ranks--until now. Since 1842. the Woosters of Holland and New York had devoted all their talents to making tiny, highly detailed figurines of soldiers and historic personalities. It was an art perfected not only by the men of the house. Wives and children pitched in, too. That's the way it went for four generations, but the fifth generation is kicking up a fuss. The Woosters work in a small East Side shop, where they have more than 1.000,000 miniatures, no more than three inches high, made of white metal or carved out of ·wood. There on the shelves are fighting men from the legions of Alexander the Great to Napoleon's fusiliers to Grant's blues. Also, in { realistic detail, there are miniature likenesses of the great names of history--from David to Dwight Eisenhower. Wooster and his older son. Earl, who is 20, make the molds. Mrs. Wooster, a sculptor, makes the master figure. A second son, Clive, who is 17, is the painter. He colors the tiny statues with a brush thin enough to thread a needle. "Clive," said his father, "is the first good painter we, ever had in the family. Before that we had to marry women who could paint, or hire artists. Clive is a natural, he has a rare talent But what does he want to do? "He wants to be a fighter. He wants to box. He wants to ruin those valuable hands." '"I just like to fight," said Clive, a tall, thin boy. "I get into street fights but I never been in the ring. I want to try, is all." "Well, he won't." said the elder Wooster. "We Dutch are funny. ' We got a lot of pride. We build up a business, we keep it going. We don't tell a boy he has to marry, but if there is a great craft in the family, there's no argument about what to do. He will paint here." The Woosters make and sell some cheaply priced toy soldiers for children. But their art and reputation lie in making hand-wrought figures on order for adult collectors. Right now they're working on one of Richard III in his death scene, falling to earth with a battle ax.e In his head. It will cost the Hollywood screen writer who ordered Fiffy years Ago Item*.

Houff Mrs. Mary Ida HoufT. wife oi a reading of the report issued a a government document by Sena tor Humphrey, Democrat, of Min nesota. While the Senator, who i chairman of a subcommittee or labor, intends to conduct a furthe investigation of Communist-con trolled labor unions, he gives th document containing the CIO's own report his approval, pointing ou that it spells out "How Comma nist unionism functions as a system of power." The report itself represents the result of a comprehensive inquirj made by the CIO's executive boar members into the operations o eight large labor unions of theij group now found to be Communis" dominated and recommended for expulsion from the CIO. The material in the report though made by a nongovernment al body, becomes privileged under the rules of Congress which re prints it. This is ah example of how valuable congressional immunity is in dealing with individuals who do not hesitate to resort to libel suits and litigation when challenging charges made outside the halls o: Congress. The puzzling thing about the facts recited in the report is that with such Communist activity going on in so many big unions, especially the United Public Workers which includes many government em- ployes, all these organizations have never been put on the Attorney General's list of subversive organizations. The report slates flatly, for instance, that the "policies and activities of the United Public Workers have been in the past and are today directed toward the achievement of the program and the purposes of the Communist party rather than the objectives set forth in the constitution of the CIO." In the face of this explicit find- inq, another statement in the report also becomes pertinent. For, in the officers' report to the 1948 convention of the United Public Workers, the distribution of members by Civil Service status is The CIO executive committee, which conducted the inquiry, ;ums up the data as- follows: "This distribution shows that 11 nor cent of the total union membership had Federal Civil Service status, 64 per cent of the member- hip had state, county, municipal Civil Service status, and the re- m a i n i n g 25 per cent of the membership, comprising members working for private employers, accord- ins to the report, had no Civil Service status." It is stated by the CIO that the Federal section of the membership has been dropping and "may now which forbid payments to any government employe who is a member of a subversive organization. It will be noted that Senator McCarthy of Wisconsin had nothing to do with all this and that the report is sponsored in Congress by Senator Humphrey. The only propinquity involved seems to be that Minnesota is geographically close to Wisconsin but there is a strange coincidence of objective--to get rid of Communists as a system of power in America. The CIO executive committee members who conducted the inquiry took testimony and offered opportunities for the accused to make statements of their own. The names of the eight unions found to be Communist controlled and now recommended for expulsion from the CIO by its own board are: 1. United Office and 'Professional Workers of America. 2. United Public Workers of America. 3. Food, Tobacco, Agricultural and Allied Workers of America. 4. American Communications Association. 5. International Fur and Leather Workers' Union. 6. International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union. 7. International Union of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers. 8. National Union of Marine Cooks and Stewards. It will be noted how wide and varied are the Communist conspiracies inside trade unions. Not long ago the Senate Internal Security committee, of which Senator McCarran of Nevada is chairman, issued a report describing a Communist conspiracy inside an A. F. of L. Union known as the Dining par and Railroad Food Workers' LJnion. In that report, issued by Senator Eastland of Mississippi Democrat, and signed by Senators McCarran of Nevada, Democrat, ind Watkins. Republican, of Utah, appears this statement: "The subcommittee is concerned over the fact which is clearly established by the testimony, that he Communists have gained'a foot- lold in the railroad industry. Al- 'hough the instant testimony re- 'eals absolute Communist control of only a small segment of the rail- oad industry, plus efforts to ex- and that control, in view of the mportance of the railroad industry o the whole national economy, it s imperative t h a t this Communist ontrol be broken." Maybe the answer to some of the poradic. unauthorized strikes in ecent years will come out some ay as these inquiries are pursued y congressional committees.

Eader Dirs Al Aw Of 81 A panel discussion on the newer theories and methods of teaching children in elementary school highlighted the December meeting of the Middletown Elementary P. T, A. on Monday in the school auditorium. Eight of the elementary school teachers took a particular phase of the new methods and explained such subjects as reading, writing, homework, tools of instruction, spelling and arithmetic. The program was presented as a climax to American Education Week. To force a child to read before he is ready does psychological harm to the child, stated Miss Hays, teacher of first grade, who explained the theory of reader readiness. She also said teaching the alphabet does not help a child to read because he learns to recognize whole words. The parents were told the most important way to help their children was to make sure they are in good health, stated Miss Higgs, second grade teacher. The teacher emphasized that emotional as well as physical health must be good, stating that a child who feels secure in his relationships with his parents will be happy and will make the proper adjustment in school. A well-balanced diet, plenty of rest and regular physical check-ups were given as guides to good health. Children who have used paste, scissors, crayons and hammers and nails before entering school will have better muscular coordination than those who have not had j the experience, said Mrs. Lutz in discussing the tools of instruction used in schools and their values. As the teacher observes the child at work with his tools, he has an opportunity to stud and guide character development. School authorities now favor a non-failure program for students who fail to keep up with the standards set for each grade, explained Mrs. Holter, who said that surveys have proved that children retained in a grade do no better work and occasionally poorer work than they did the first year m that grade. The theory, it was explained, is that each child' progresses at his own rate of speed, and if a child fails to measure up to standards set too high for him, he suffers psychological harm. Manuscript handwriting, \vhich is taught in the first few grades, proves a valuable help in later life, stated Mrs. Frushour, who spoke on the teaching of handwriting. Sometime during the third and fourth grades when the child's muscular development is ready, he begins his cursive writing, the teacher explained. Students now look forward to the time he will accomplish cursive writing compared with those who dreaded the Side Glances T. M. REC. U. S. PAT. OFF. COPR. W1 BY NEA SERVICE. INC.

His job was controlling the street lights, and during his employment with the city he worked seven nights a week. He was born January 4. 1870 a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Peter Eader, and was a member of All Saints church. He is survived by his wife.

Students now see concrete relationships of numbers, thus gaining an insight into the use of arithmetic, related Miss Ahalt, who discussed the new method of teaching arithmetic. A child's interest in school is dulled by too much homework, Mrs. Boone said in discussing the pros and cons of homework. In some cases homework is advisable, particularly where the child did not finish his work in school and would profit by completing it. she said, and urged that whenever a parent is in doubt about homework for his child, he should discuss it with his teacher. During the business meeting, the group decided to hold the next meeting in February. Group singing of Christmas carols, during which two Christmas scenes were posed by costumed members, and the serving oi refreshments concluded the meeting. Second Case Of Week For Peoples Court Magistrate H. Reese Shoemaker.

Dorothy was one of eight teenagers selected as winners in the National 4-H Club Farm and Home Safety Program, being sponsored by General Motors for the seventh consecutive year. She was awarded her scholarship by GM Vice President Paul Garrett while she and 41 other state winners in the program were in Chicago as guests of General Motors at the 3'Oth National 4-H Club Congress.' Her scholarshio was awarded November 25. Dorothy, who lives on a 55-acre farm near Jefferson, embarked on her safety program after two neighbors escaped death in tractor accidents. As she told Mr. "this gave me the urge to be an investigation in my communi 1 as to how the many safety hazard! could be eliminated." She started her safety work at home and, using her experience there as a background, followed with safety surveys of seven neighboring farms, stressing cautious hvidling of livestock and wiring, no smoking in barns and uncluttered stairs. Other activities included a bicycle safety campaign for children and a demonstration on pgar venting burns.
