Jan. 2 — Travel from London to Paris these days, after the mo<3c employed by your columnist team that is. by train and boat — is -marked by mighty effort, much disooiTitort and some peril. 'This is in truth an adventure ' which should by those who've s\iE£ered from the delusion that the war \In Europe '. ended with V. E. Day. Cessation of gunfire marked the conclusion of one phr.se of the conflict; but the struggle continues against frightful dis- abttrttes left by 'the Hitlerian upheaval. Mrs. Mack and I traveled from London by train to the port of Newhaxon on the southeast coast Oi England. The train ran in two sections, one jammed with civilians ai'fl military and the other with rn£,>L<- 700 Yankee' officers and. GI s a typical assortment for a Nowha\ en"- Dieppe sailing. The AjTier!::n:< coathVjent comprised msr v ho had becti on leave, and others who were bei:ig shifted for new duties on the continent — part-of the constant ebb and How of 'soldiery in "peacetime" Europe. ^ncse trains, which we filled like sai'dines after being jammed at .barriers for nearly an hour, finally arrived at the port whera they cast us out like the whale regur- gvtntii's? Jonah. There we were packed aboard a battered little Ship of such antiquity that it might well have been a life-boat of Noah's ~~ ®— Even passages were crowded With men and women sleeping in chairs and on the floor. On the whole it was a remarkably cheerful crowd, although everyone knew that the wators between England and France were dangerous with floating German mines which had been torn loose fr,om their moorings by a fierce storm of several jays' duration. Many sailings had been cancelled, for the channel is as full of mines as a hound dog is of fleas. Mrs. Mack and I wangled a two- berth cabin and I. being an old campaigner, fell asleep soon as I hit my bunk despite the. noise and the fact that our tub. even while •tied to the dock, shook like jelly with the vibration of her engines. So I was amazed in the morning to learn from my partner that during the night, after the ship got underway, there was a call lor all passengers to don life-belts. "For the love of mike," I exploded, "and you didn't even wake me up to tell me about it." "Well," sniffed the liltle lady, '•nobody could lie down in one of these bunks with a life-belt on, ,anyway.'' 'Later I learned that.the call was a routine precaution of these parlous days of drifting mines, and I Sti-ongly .suspect the distaff side of our team knew it. However, I couldn't be sure, having seen the way she will risk her neck/jumping a'horse over a hign barrier. Anyway, we finally arrived at Dieppe, ancient and picturesque city which was the scene of the first major Allied attack by ground troops on the continent — August 19, 1942. None of this generation, • and -especially the Canadians who lost so heavily, ever'will-forget the gallant assault against this ,Ger- manheld fortress .port. The land- ins, "force was made up of Canadians, British, French de Gaullists and a few Americans, and street after street of shattered buildings remain as monuments to many brave men who died there. And so on by train from Dieppe rolling farmlands to Paris. lj;'effe' ; there; "were marks left Hope Star Star of Hope 1899; Press 1917, Comolldatod January 18, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by^ Star Publishing Co., Inc.

They kissed- each other and said farewells. They waited for the S. S man who stood near a pit 30 meters long and three meters deep ("approximately 100 J by, 10 feet). "During 15 minutes I heard no complaint or' plea for mercy." Graebe described the farewell of one family consisting of man and wife, each of whom appeared nearly 50, and their five children — an infant about one year old, two children eight and 10, and two grown daughters, 20 to 24. "The old woman with snow white hair was holding the year old child in her arms and singing to it. She tickled it and the child cooed with delight," he said. "The father was holding the hand of: the boy about 10. He spoke to him softly while the boy was fight- i in" back his tears. The father ! nointed to the sky and stroked the i boy's hand, explaining =ome- i thing." i Graebe said the victims in the i mass grave were wedged together, i lying atop each other. He said the 'pit was two-thirds full when he saw i it, and he estimated that it held 1,000 persons. j "Nearly all had blood running over their shoulders from their heads. Some were still moving. jThey lifted their arms and turned : their heads to show they were still i alive. i An S. S. man sat on the edge at i the narrow end of the pit, smok- ling a cigarette and holding a LOITI- Imygun on his knees, Graebe said. "Naked people went down into the oil rind flimtafd over the heads of people lying there to the place [where the S. S. man directed them. iThen I heard a series of shots. . . The next batch was already approaching." Twenty defendants were in the box when the American prosecution resumed its case against the Gestapo after a 12-day recess.

SUSANNA fOSTI* FIANCHOT TONE We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Looking back on our Christmas shopping, we're convinced thai U there is one kind of etiquet training women need, it is in being considerate in stores. You see women interrupting a clerk who is concentrating on making out a sales slip or counting money into the hand of another customer. You see them asking an overworked salesman to drag out every style of men's house slipper in the store only to say sweetly when they have looked them ove- carefully, "I guess I'd better not lake them today after all; I'm not just sure of the size." You hear them ask silly questions and stall along trying to make up their minds whether tu lake the blue or the pink while a line of tired shoppers forms behind. All Ihc questions lhal should have occurred to them before they started out lo buy an article neve. 1 seem to pop into their minds until they get a clerk's attention. And the more crowded the stores, the wore women shoppers seem to act. II is almost as though they worn saying, "1 waited a long time to get someone to wait on me—and now I am goint' THEY WANT TO LOOK And then there is that habii to hang on as long as possible." women have of n e v c r beint; able to take the first thing they see—even though it exactly fills the bill. "Have you anything else?" they ask hopefully, even after they have been shown the very thing they came in to buy. And even when—as so often happens now— there is no choice. Hazel-eyed Nancy Saunders, 20. of Hollywood, visiled her first night club a few weeks ago, says the press agent, and, presto, a talent scout spotted her. At any rale, Nancy now has a film contract and a role in RKO's musical, "The Bamboo Blonde." Dcar Miss Dix: I arn a young woman with a devoted husband and u year and o half old son. For the lost three years my husband has been in the service and while he was gone I lived with my mother and father who have been very good to me. But now he has been discharged from the service and has gone into his old business and he is very anxious for us to establish our own home. However,'my mother and two maiden aunts, who live with her, have become fanalically devolcd lo my baby, and when we talk about leaving they^ almost go into hysterics over it. My mother throws up to me all that she has ever given me in her life and ssys that it will kill her if I lake her grandson away from her. Since my husband has returned our old friends have begun coming to sec us and it creates an embarrassing situation, for my father and mother and my two aunts plank Ihemselves right down with our company and monopolize the conversation, and nalurally bore our friends lo tears. In my husband's business it is necessary that I entertain a lot for him, and this I cannot do in my father's house. HUSBAND RESENTFUL My husband naturally resents all of this. He wants his own home and to be free lo do what he pleases in it and not to have lo give in lo the whims and prejudices of four old people. The situation is making him very cross and irritable. What shall I do? I cannot bear to hurt my parents, nor can I bear to make my husband unhappy by denying him his own home, forcing him to lead a life of suppression, and injuring his business prospects. MRS. L. E. J. ANSWER: There should not be conflict in your mind about your conduct. When a woman marries, her paramount obligalipn is lo her husband. There is Biblical authority for that. The good book expressly states that a wife should leave father and mother and cleave unto her husband. Parents commit a great sin when they try to nuuify what is a law of nature, as well as a law of God, by Irying lo keep their children wilh them, instead of leaving them free to go wilh their males. Being an intelligent woman, you should look the siluatipn squarely in the face and recognize lhal you are going lo make a lot of unhappiness by yielding lo a selfish old woman's desire lo keep Ihe baby with her. For, if you do, you will certainly lose your husband, who is not going lo stay put in a home where he is bored stiff by the enforced company of old people; where he has no personal liberty, and where he must doubl the affection of a wife who puts her parents above him. Surely if you tell your father and mother all of Ihis, you cun make Ihem sec Ihe justice and the wisdom of letting you go to your own home. Dear Dorothy Dix: My husband left me two years ago wilh two deaf children to care for. They are in a school for the deaf for nine months of the year, but I have lo work very hard to'be able to support them when they arc on their summer vacation. My husband is an able-bodied man, but he hides and I can't find him. He has a brother who helps me a little with the children. I also have a sisler in Ihe South who has offered to lake me in. Now I arn 52 years old and am not able to work much longer as I have been doing. I think that if I sell out what few things I have and leave, my brother-in-law and my sisler will be compelled to support the children, and mavbe Ihe law will get after my husband and make him help. What do you think? DISCOURAGED MOTHER ANSWER: Maybe the plan will work, but I can't see how a mother can just walk out on two af- ficted children, and I don't believe you will be happy if you do. Children need live just as much as they do food and clothes, and the knowledge lhat they had a mother who loved them and who was working to help them must have been a great comfort lo your unfortunate young ones. Take that away from them and they must feel that even God Himself has forsaken them. I earnestly advise you to stand by your children. You are all Ihey have to cling lo. Go and talk your case over with the Children's Bureau and surely it will help you. (Bell Syndicale, Inc.)

THE STORY: Pike Calvin senses an ominous air about THE SADDLEBACK INN, exclusive mountain resort. Shrewd, fat and bald Roger Bland says he knows that Pike is there only to see John Clay, powerful magnate who owns the Inn. He tells Pike that lovely Fay Tudor is Clay's niece. He also claims to know what happened to Mary Butler. Ill Pike had lunch—an underdone chop curried rice, cold cloverleaf buscuils with apple butler, and bitter warmed-over coffee with milk which he suspected had been thickened with canned milk. For this, he reflected, I am paying John Clay $18 a day. He went out to the main desk. Mr. Hill was putting envelopes in the boxes of the guests. He laid them down as Pike approached and his while hands fluttered. Pike said: "Is there a library in town?" That was a casual enough question, but it did something to Mr. Mitt. He had on a brown silk scarf with big white dots on it. It was knotted carefully at his throat in lieu of a necktie, and Mr. Hitt put one hand up to the knot and pressed it gently. "A library," he said. "Yes." "If it is some book we could send over for—" "No," Pike said. Mr. Hilt's bowed lips straightened. He pointed through a big window. "Do you see that white lower next to the steeple?" Pike saw it. "How far?" "About a mile. The station wagon is going in for the mail." "I'll walk, thank you," Pike said. "Very well." Mr. Hitt picked up the envelopes. "You take the Valley Road." Pike went up to his room. He walked slowly across the pale blue carpet. He wished il was time lo call Sam Pringle. He should have made it 1:30. What was all this about Mary Butler? Pike was planning lo talk with Mary Butler. She was John Clay's secretary. But something had happened. She was a lovelv girl, too, Bland said. The "too" was easy enough to come at; a little rlefp"»ntiiil be"" '^ \ hn "ir- ginal loveliness of Mijss Tudor. But tile "was." \\hul luid nap- pcncd to JWary Butler? Pike looked at his suitcase. It was unstrapped. He had strapped il carefully before he went downstairs. He remembered clearly. He went over and lifted the cover. He rifled his hand through the clothing. Nothing had been taken out or put in. But someone had opened his luggage and gone through it. As Pike went out across the b r o a d veranda and down on lo the lawn, Miss Tudor was just crossing Hie bluc-slnnc drive. She had a book under her arm. I'm in luck. Pike thought. When she readied the road, she must have heard Pike behind her. She stopped and looked up the Valley Road toward the mountain, giving him time to pass. ' "I beg your pardon." Pike raised his hat. "Is I hi- the Valley Road?" She regarded him deliberately i Ihon pointed to a sign. The letters ; VALLEY ROAD were at least six inches high. I "Thank .YOU." he said. "Which way do 1 HO?" "Whc.e." she asked, "do you wanl to end up?" lie glanced at the book under her arm. "The library." he said. She flushed faintly. Then she t-miled and shrugged. "I'm going there," she said. "I'll show you." "My name is Calvin," he said. "I know," she said. "Mine is Tudor." "This is very kind of you." She did not re^y. "Especially," he said, "as I was obviously trying to make your acquaintance." "Obviously," she said. "What's the book?" He pointed to the volume under her arm. " The Robe.' " "Good?" She gazed at him in wonder. "Haven't you read it?" He shook his head. "But you're going to the library now," he said. "If you're returning 'The Robe', I'll take it out, if they'll let me." The library turned out to be a brick colonial building with wings that threw geometric patterns of shade on the lush green lawn. Cut large and deep in white stone over the entrance were the words: THE CLAY MEMORIAL LIBRARY. In memory of what Clay, Pike wondered as Ihcy approached. He said: "Quite a place." "It was built in memory of my Aunt Emma," she said. "It's a fine memorial," he said. "Yes," she said. "She died four years ago. She was my mother's younger sister and John Clay's second wife." He looked at her sharply, but her face was like a mask. "She was only 40," the girl said. "What did she die of?" Pike said. The girl turned and looked al -him. She said: "I'm not sure." Pike opened his mouth and closed it again. There was a tight little smile on her lips, and Pike could see her brown hand clutching the book under her arm so tightly that the knuckles showed white. . "Aren't you coming in?" she said. "Not now," he said. "I have business in town." , "I'll ask Miss Felton to hold the book for you." "Thanks," ho said, "for everything." "You're quite welcome," she said. (To Be Continued) By DR. WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service The physician who diagnoses diabetes in his patient plays the most important role in the outcome of the disease, The patient should be told quite frankly the nature of his disease, the fact that it probably will last his lifetime, and the necessity for continuous scientific care. The new diabetic has many things to learn and a hospital slay is helpful in getting a good start. Every case of diabetes.is an in' dividual problem. Management of the disease is not difficult, but it is time-consuming. PATIENTS TREAT SELVES Purpose of diabetic treatment Is lo prevent lose of sugar] through the urine, to prevent an abnormal breakdown of protein 'and its conversion into sugar, and to hold fat metabolism in check. Proper treatment will make the patient look well, feel well and enjoy life. All diabetic patients must be taught to test their own urine and to keep themselves sugar free. Good diabetic management is based upon proper diet. Although various dic,ts are used, there.is one point on which all agree; that is Ihe patient slays slim. When overweight is corrected, diabetics improve. The various diets also are in agreement in mineral, protein and vitamins recommended; the only variation is in amounts of fat and sugar prescribed. DIETS START SIMPLY The diets vary with age, sex, weight and occupation of the patient. New diabetics usually are started on a simple diet and alterations are made as indicated. Insulin is given to diabetic patients to compensate for deficiency of the pancreas. A normal person secretes a small amount of insulin at all times, and a large amount when he eats starch and sugar. The average diabetic patient injects a single dose of pro- tamine insulin each morning; which works slowly, lessening the' danger of insulin shock resulting from an overdose. Hunger, weakness, svyeating, trembling and apprehension are signs of beginning insulin reaction, and unless the condition is corrected, loss of consciousness may .follow. A small amount of sugar by mouth usually will correct the condition. drop out of high school or who are 'unable to go to college, few civilian jobs can match the long- term advantages of pay, promotion, travel, security and education offered by the Army today. —Maj.

Actually, in Arkansas, at least, il would nol make much, if any, difference in operation, for all Ihe money for the Employment Service comes from the federal government But thai is not what this item started out to tell. A recent development in Arkansas ends to prove lhal the USES employes would much rather be "federal bureaucrats" than "stale bureaucrats." Here's the reason for that conclusion: Invitation Ignored As an initial slep in the eventual reversion lo Ihc slale, Ihc slate Labor Department announced a couple of weeks ago lhal Ihe Em- ploymcnl Security Division, which administers unemployment compensation, was canceling the con- !ract with the USES whereby the latter processed unemployment pay claims. Employment Security Director Purifoy Gill lei il be known lhal his division, in order lo do Ihe pro- ^ cessing itself, would be glad to ac- urior days, cept all employes on transfer from the currently federal agency to the slale's Employment Security Division. Now it seems that virtually none of the employes would be glad lo transfer. Labor Commissioner M. E. Goss had expected Mr. Gill to file a re- porl before this time detailing the transfer arrangements; but no plan has been forthcoming as yet. An Employe Tells Why A youne woman clerk with the USES explained thai "liltle matters like what will happen to ac- cumlaled sick leave, accumulated annual leave, and status under the slate merit system, after transfer from federal civil service, have nol been worked oul lo the point where the employes who have been invited to change over to the slate are completely satisfied." Many small business operators, j who have had occasion lo use Ihc USES, are anxious for Ihe Em- ! ploymenl Service to return to state authority because they believe that, afler the agency was taken out of the slate's hands as « war emergency move, Arkansas em- ployes have been handicapped by a tendency tu ship labor out of Ihe slate to fill jobs elsewhere. Churchill is Honored With Order of Ment London, Jan. —CUP)— King George VI today yhonored his wartime prime minister, Winston Churchill, with the Order of Merit — the highest award Churchill could accepl without violating his decision lo avoid taking a tille or entering the House of Loods. By adding the initials O. M. after his name, Churchill followed the example of David Lloyd George, World War I premier who accepted the order of merit in 1919 after refusing all lilies. Almost 25 years later, a few months bcfoVe population was 1,108, aboul half the pro-war normal population. Parole Officer Eugene Baker sairl that the number of inmates declined sharply after 1939, and through 1944, bul there has been a slight increase this year. At times the total in prison has been as low as 1,000, he said. From April through November, this year, 678 persons applied for paroles, and 192 applications were granted. Only 15 \yere revoked in thai period, oul of a lolal nf 902 parolees, 800 of whom had been -.jiven their conditional liberty in 'Dream-WAC his death, Lloyd George accepted an. earldom. Churchill remains plain "mis- ler," or "Winston" as he is affectionately called by bootblacks and barons alike. He refused Ihe order of Ihc garter" last summer in re- liremenl from office. The order of Merit confers no precedence upon Churchill. There are only 24 members. King George also named sic siv- counts in the largesl New Year honors lisl ever released. The new viscounts are Field Marshal Lord Alanbrooke, Field Marshal Lord Alexander, Admiral of the Fleet Lord Cuningham, Field Marshal Lord Montgomery, Air Marshal Lord Portal, who also received the order of merit, and LLord Spithwood, publisher of the Labor newspaper, the DDaily Herald.

Paul said, "I verily thought with myself that I ought to do many things contrary lo the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of Ihc saints did 1 shut up in pris- :m. having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, 1 gave my voice against them. And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme.—" (Acts 20:9-11) Journeying from Jerusalem to Damascus lo thus pcrsec'itc Chris! ians, Paul was slrici.en lo earth by a brilliant light, and •.emporarily blinded thereby. The Lord had in this manner appeared unto Saul, and directed him lo •40 inlo the city (Damascus!. Some conclude that Saul was saved by the Lord's appearing U) him, but such contradicts the facts in Ihe case. The gospel, Paul later aryued, is the power of God unto salvation. (Rom. 1:1G> If Ihe Lord saved Paul in that manner, then lo avoid partiality he would be obligated to appear personally lo save every person. The Lord did not tell Paul he had appeared unto him lo save him. Let us hear what the Lord did tell him: "—for I have appeared unto thee for Ihis pur- ni-so. lo niHki' thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hasl seen, and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things which I will appear unto thee." (Acls 26:lG-18r Paul argued that he was qualified to be an apostle because he had seen the Lord. (1 Cor. 9-1) The Lord then appeared to call Paul as an apostle and minister. The appearance of the Lord was a circumstance, and not an essential to conversion. The Lord did nol tell Paul he had "gloriously saved him," bul lo arise and go into the city where he would be properly instructed. Saul was led into the city, where he continued in iasl- anj; and prayer for three days and nights, thus demonstrating his faith and repentance. Then the gospel preacher, Ananias, came to him. saving, "And now why tarries! thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord." (Acts 22:16) In Saul's conversion the gospel was preached to him, he demonstrated his faith and repentance, and ho was baptized to "wash away" his sins This again illustrates how God saves one in this age. (This conversion recorded in "Vets 9' 22:1-113; 20:9-19.) Waymon D. Miller, Minister Church of Christ 5th and Grady Streets Hope, Arkansas Adv.
