WILSON Washington, Dec. 24 — (UP) — Despite disclaimers. Sen. Robert A. Taft, H., O., looked more and more today like a man who had nn eye on the 19411 Republican presidential nomination. His decision to take the chairmanship of the Senate Labor Committee in the new Congress, rather than'the Senate Finance Committee, contributed to the belief that Taft had given more than passing thought to presidential politics. Taft further bolstered that' belief last night when lie said the time was near for a decision on whom Ohio Republicans will support for the 1948 nomination. The favorite sons are Taft and Sen. sleet Jphn W. Brickcr. Although he refrained Jrom calling himself a candidate, Taft said he and Bricker would "sit clown soon and decide this matter." Taft's decision to accept the relatively obscure Labor Committee n preference to the Senate Finance Committee is especially sig- lificant. Finance is the blue ribbon Senate committee. It will handle a lax reduction bill of some kind next year. Furthermore, the Finance Committee will only begin its lax revision work in 1947. As long as Republicans are in control of the Senale it is likely thai its Finance Committee will 'be tinkering with taxes, mostly tinkering them downward a little at a lime.

Lillle ROCK, Dec. 24 — (/P)— A claim of St. James of Port Arthur, Tex., to scoring honors for high school football teams this season was quickly disputed today by Ihe Lillle Rock High School Tigers. The Tigers have scored 578 points iu 14 games, an average of more lhan 41.2 points per game as compared to the 14-game, 563-point '.oial for an average of 30.2 claimed ay Si. James. The Tigers' opponents have scored a tolal of only ,j(l points. Little Rock has no more games scheduled. Its latest victim was Warren Easton High school of New Orleans, which itdcfcated 21 to 0 mained in the prostrate cily o smingu, on WaKayama's easl coasl where 14,000 Japanese, whose homes collapsed in Ihe Jirst shock or burned in Ihe fires lhal fol lowed, huddled on the beachqs in Janan's inhospitable, winter. These refugees were living , 01 boiled creek water, while, over worked . Japanese doctors treaie 500 hospital cases in any shelte they could find. Their hospila vanished in Ihe fire lhat swept th city. The army and Japanese authoi ities, who had rushed serum an food to all other danger areas, were arranging to get more serum inlo isolated bningu, whicn f.lread had one boatload of supplies. The home ministry began check of property damage of Sa urday's violent quake and iida waves. It was expected the tola would reach billions of -yen. Its survey so far showed 12,4£ homes wrecked, buried by debr: or washed away, 9,55 partly de stroyed, and 2,502 ships of variou sizes wrecked. Some ships wer picked up by the tidal waves an hurled half a mile inland on Waka yama's western shore, U. S. observers reported. And while the count, of ruin and death went on, Americans got things done in or;e of the greatesl relief missions in Japan's hislory. Relief Irains were rolling inlo the area, ships were arriving al stricken ports, serum was distrib- uled against typhoid, typhus and other disaster-stalking diseases, ind two U. S. Army emergency hospitals were moved in to handle overflow cases. The Japanese welfare ministry .••eleased housing project materials sufficient to build 5,000 homes in the disaster area.

O'BRIEN M.D. Written for NEA Service Good food and good family life are essential for the development of normal children. Children can be deprived of many other so-called "essentials" without suffering any Apparent loss. The family, as the basic unit of society, provides the emotional background for most adult behavior. Children have an unfortunate j '.endency to mimic a parent's behavior, even though they may display active hostility toward that parent and criticize him severely. A poor home environment is not necessarily one in which there is poverty, brutality or illiteracy, writes Dr. Douglas D. Bond, Cleveland psychiatrist, in the Journal Lancet. A worse type is one in which there is rejection or neglect of children by their parents. Children arc human beings with all Ihc rights, desires, and capabilities of human beings. Children who nre not wanted, because they arc the "wrong" sex or for any other reason, enter life's baUle with a great handicap. Many parents unfortunately play favorites with their children and go out of their way to show some jf them special consideration, thus deeply hurling the plhcrs. The child is the viclim of every L'nmily quarrel, even though he may not hear or see his parents quarreling. Society has a habit of blaming molhers when children go wrong, though fathers should be held equally responsible. The job of being a good mother is more important, according to psychiatrists, than most pf ,thc positions which women try .to!occupy in the work - a - day Woijldi 'j ;;•, Parent' Responsibility Motherhood is not something lo be taken for; granted,, and while il does not enjoy the dignity of a professional classification, the rc- sponsibililies of a professional arc there. ' •',... Parents should plan their livas so that their chief purpose is the upbringing of good children. Many parents attempt lo evade this responsibility by consigning Ihcir children lo Ihc care of others, seeking lo "escape" by joining clubs and working in public-spirited organizations. Teachers exert an enormous influence in the lives of children, and parents should co - operate in carrying out school recommendations at home and in helping teachers solve their children's difficulties in the school room.

Hitherto buried "in a statistical rawer, the official National <eague fielding averages unVeileti oday, revealed that the Redbirds ed in club fielding with a percent- ge of .980 and committed the few- si errors, 124. The Cards' fine defensive play enabled the league to establish a major league fielding, recor d of 9741, surpassing the previous best mark of .9735 it had set in 1943. The loop also better edits previous owest error total from 1,312 to 1,259. ' From an individual fielding view point, the circuit's all-star infield ncludcd two Cardinals, Al (Red) Schoendienst and.George (Whitey) fCurowski. Schoendienst topped',Ine second basemen with a mark" oi .984, and Kurowski headed the third basemen with .966. The most remarkable fielding performance was turned in . by Frank McCormick of the Philadel phia Phillies, who led all firs basemen with a record percentage of .999. He participated in 134 games and made only one error in 1,284' chances to better the ok mark of .997 made by Walter Holke, Boston, in 1921. John (Buddy) Kerr. of the New York Ginats, set a couple of records in pacing the shortstops with .982 and failed by one percentage point to tie Eddie Miller's^ major- league mark of .983 set in 1942. Kerr finished the season with an unbroken string of 52 consecutives errorless games, surpassing the mark of 51 compiled by Leo Du- rochor, of the 1931 Cincinnati Reds. The very old lady sat in her easy chair, her hands that had toiled so long, folded quietly in her lap, the sunshine making a halo about her snow-shite head, her Htlle grandson playing at her feet. Suddenly the child said: "Granny, what are you doing?" "I am only sorting out my memories," the very old lady replied. And the boy, not understanding, but vaguely cheered and comforted, went on with his games. Sorting out her memories! What delightful occupation, 1 thought.

Mrs. Bannock said so; his constant attendance, the showers of bouquets and notes orovcd it. Quite sudden it was, but Rose didn't need to be told lhat to fall in love requires practically no time at all, that you can bn flung into love, as if from a catapult. Reading between the lines of any letter Rose might write, Mamma would optimistically expect such further statements as could not conscientiously be made. For Rose did nol reciprocate the sentiment. With her heart in Blakesvill?, in Richard Breen's pocket, she was finding Mr. Thayor's campaign i-x- ciling bul a little awkward. Mr. Thayer was exactly what Mamma would think a young man ought to be. "Only," Rose thought, "he isn't Rick!" On the lasl day, Dixon Thayer invited Rose and Mrs. Bannock lo motor with him down into Stafford County, to his place there. "I want you to moel Kclurah Thayer.
