GEORGE (For Jack Stinnett) Washington — A berth on the United States Supreme Court has long been considered the No 1 honor, exclusive of the presidency that could come lo an American lawyer. Should Congress approve President Truman's proposed increases in salaries for high-ranking government officials, a Supreme Court judgeship would become an even more coveted oosi- tion. Mr. Truman would raise the sal- ! anes of the Chief Justice of the United States from $20,500 to $30,- 5UO and the associate justices of Mn nnA P1 'A m ° C ? Urt from $ 20 .0°0 to $30,000. Any ot the judges of the circuit courts of app.eals, court of claims and court of customs and patent appeals would be raised xrom $12,000 to $22,500 While $30,000 a year would not generally be regraded as very high remuneration for a position of that importance and prestige, the "take-home" pay of about $23,478 alter federal income tax could provide comfortable and dignified living for a justice's family not given to splurging. The fact that a justice is not obligated to do much in the way of lavish entertaining always has been considered by some court members as one of the assets of the office. Unlike members of Congress, they are under no compulsion to keep in good standing with •constitutents" who visit the capital city. For the justices, even a bid to a White House function is not, a command invitation. Tradilional seclusion prolecls them from the glamor of political squabble. They are out of reach of voter wrath or fickleness. Justices have asked friends confidentially about outside appraisal of their opinions, and they have privately defended their positions, but they still function in a sanctum of great privacy. One thing that makes the financial angle of a high court judgeship particularly attractive is that the salary — now $20,000 — goes SOUTHEASTER the friendly school of opportunity Second semester opens January, 14 Summer term begins May 20 Southeastern offers • Full curriculum in 19 departments • Modern course'in teacher training • Pre-professionql courses in six fields ... all applicable toward five degrees — B.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Does exercise keep us healthy or do we exercise because we are healthy'.' There is no supporting evidence for the idea that exercise prolongs life! its main effects are tin increase in muscular development and a sense of well-being. Muscular exertion stimulates the body functions. The heart rate is increased, breathing is deeper and more rapid, heal increased, appetite is whipped up and fatigue is relieved by sound sleep. It also is a good growth stimulus in childhood. LIMIT YpUR EXERCISE There is no one perfect form of exercise. When we are young any type can be enjoyed to the limit of our endurance providing we have a normal heart; as we grow older we should limit our exercise to that kind and amount which will not strain the heart. The body has over 200 .muscles arranged in pairs. Their job is to protect vital structures, maintain balance and posture and move the body. To perform successfully, muscles must bo in balance and possess good lone; wRen the muscle on one side of the body contracts, the one on the opposite side must relax.

After a muscle has not been used for some lime the fibers become smaller; such a muscle tires, and, if used excessively, it will become sore and this will delay recovery. An arm or leg which has been kept in a cast for a certain time becomes smaller because of shrinking of the muscle fibers. IDLENESS SHRINKS MUSCLE If exercise and recreation arc combined, nervous tension and mental fatigue are relieved. The result of muscle exercise should be an increase in energy and nol excessive faligue. A brisk walk in the open air is a good form of exercise for a healthy person. Good muscular condition can be maintained by taking a daily walk of about three miles. Muscular movements thai are used over and over make an im- arint upon Ihc body's form and "unction. Many people never have earned lo use Ihoir muscles properly. They attempt to substitute one muscle for the other, so that clumsy, awkward movement results. This may happen after an njury or illness, and it is a problem in retaining patients whose nerves or muscles have been af- iecled by infantile paralysis. Barbs By HAL COCHRAN The outlook is brightcsl for Ihosc who look oul. According to dispatches from London, British husbands arc organizing an Anti-Mother-in-Law Society. Unfortunately, the report does not say why Englishmen, who are noted for their courage and ability to take care of themselves, feel a sudden necessity for the protection that a mass movement gives, Probably it is just a case of war jitters, but it calls attention to a curious masculine phobia. That is the fear .and suspicion with which so many married men regard their wives' mothers and which has resulted in the poor ladies, however s]im and elegant in appearance, being always caricatured as fat and blowzy shrews domineering over their abject sons- in-law. Also, it is this feeling that there are (hings about which one must either laugh or cry that has given perpetual life to the corny mother-in-law joke thai is the stock in trade of smart-alec son-in-law, who lake pol shots al their wives' mothers under the guise of being funny, when they arc only being Insulting. WOMEN HAVE PROBLEM, TOO It is easy enough to sec why women go into marriage with a chip on their shoulders for their mothers-in-law, because mothers, as a rule, don't want their sons to marry and they . look upon their wives pretty much as they would upon burglars who had stolen their silver. Brides know this, and it makes them keep a wary eye on John's mother and not be crazy about having her around loo much. Bui men have no such excuse for Iheir antagonism to their mothers-in-law, for . mothers wanl their daughters to marry and set up their homes. They, are tickled pink when Mary -makes a good catch. and welcome him into the family with open arms. So the best you can say for men's atli- lude lowards Iheir molhe,rs-in-law is thai Ihcy are bound by tradition that they haven't had enough Thoughts Leaving Wednesday for the University of Arkansas, Faycttcville were: Miss Gwyn Evans, Miss Peggy McNeil, Miss Virginia O'Neal, Miss Betly Robins, John Ashcr Hudson, and Franklin Middlebrooks.

As u mailer of fuel, if Ihe young husband knew which side of his bread lo butter, instead of making his mother-in-law Ihc bull of his ill-limed jesls and Irealing her as if she were an undeserved afflic- ion lhal his wife had somehow put over on him, he would wo(> her as assiduously as ho did her daugh- ler. For, lillle as he may suspect It. a married man can have no betler friend lhan his mother-in- law, and in Ihe ups and downs of married life there are going to be plenty of times when he will need her. And need her badly. Perhaps the men who arc organizing Ihe Anti-Mother-in-Law crusade have never noticed thai in limes of domestic slress il is nearly always Ihe wife's mother, not the husband's mother, who comes to the rescue. When John is oul of a job and the rent is overdue and the grocer won't give any more credit, it is Mamie's Mama who somehow fishes down in her old leather bag and digs out the money to tide Ihem over.

And during the war when millions of men were called upon to defend Iheir country and so many homes had lo be broken up, and so many husbands and fa- Ihers were tortured by not knowing how to leave their families safe while they were gone, didn't most of them solve the problem by just sending Mary and the kids back to her mother, not his?

The Fiji Islands were voluntarily placed under British sovereignty by their chefs in 1874. Little Rock, Jan, 3 — A letter received here from the War Department indicates that erstwhile war plant contractors find it as profitable to lose, as to win, the suits brought against them by former employes for wages claimed under the Fair Labor Standards Act. More than $2,000,000 is being claimed by hundreds of former war workers who have instituted suits in federal and state courts here. Most of these, the War Department said, "arose out of the construction and operation of the Arkansas Ordnance Plant" at Jacksonville. According to the lastest informa lion available," the department's communication reported, "$287,144.09 has been expended in payment of 673 claims involving that plant." In the nation at large, it was aid that 506 cases were pending, in which thousands of former workers in the plants ;demand $10,108,000. The War Department's explanation, which seems to mean that the contractors cannot suffer financially and might actually profit, despite the fact that they are defendants charged %vith disregarding the law respecting employes, follows: "The claims are asserted againsl cost-plus-a-fixed-fec contractors ra- her than against the government, and any payments made to satisfy such claims are made by the con- .ractors, which in turn, request re- Dethe mbursement from the War partment in accordance with :erms of their contracts. The funds used for reimbursement purposes are determined by the nature of .he contracts involved." This much is certain —the only losers are the taxpayers; yet the Department of Justice has with drawn its attorneys from defense of the suits, leaving that entirelj to lawyers for the contractors— who arc reimbursed if the plain tiffs get judgment against them Just a Year Away Washington, Jan. 2 — An act o Congress is holding the federal in surance contribution tax agains employers and employes at on per cent during 194G, when it wa scheduled to go to 2 1-2 per cenl Internal Revenue Commissioiie J.

In a recent report to Congress, 10 Surplus Property Administra- on said that "present prospects jr the disposition of the government's synthetic ammonia war lanls permit a reasonable expect- tion of meeting the Agriculture Jepartment's program for produc- on of 250,000 tons of nitrogen a ear above the output of the Ten essee Valley." The El Dorado plant was one o: our which it was said would fit eadily into plans for the future 'his installation, operated by the .lion Chemical Company under a varlime lease, has a nilrogen ca )acily of 131,000 tons annually Converted to grained ammoniourr itrate, as was done at shell-load ng plants, the Ozark Works has a capacity of 39,000 tons in nilrogen quivalent, less than one-fifth the 'olume desired by the Agriculture Department. Desirability of adding to the plants was pointed out in the SPA •eport to Congress. The Lion com- 3any is interested in acquiring the Dzark Works, but it is encounter- ng some competition from other nterests. It is possible, of course, hat the government will decide to •etain ownership and have the slant operated under lease. STOP JOHN CLAY/ D Lionel B Y Mosfier • Copyright, 194S, NEA Service. Inc. THE STORY: Pike Calvin senses an ominous air about THE SADDLEBACK INN, exclusive mountain resort. Shrewd Roger Bland says he knows that Pike is there only to see John Clay, powerful magnate who owns the Inn. He also claims to know what happened to Mary Butler. Pike's luggage is searched. He later walks into town with Fay Tudor, Clay's lovely niece. About to return a book to the library, she offers to let him take itout on her card. " Pike found the public 'phone in a drugstore. He reversed a person- to-person call to Sam Pringle and Sam must have been sitting by the 'phone. "Where arc you?" he asked. "Herkimcr's Pharmacy," Pike said. "Well, lisle n," Sam said. "There's a rcgislcrcd air mail on ihe way lo you care of general delivery at Saddle River. It ought lo be there tomorrow." "Okay," Pike said. "What about Mary Butler?" "It's all in there," Sam said. "Read it. Then burn it." "Look," Pike said. "Tomorrow muy be too late." "What's happened?" "Nothing's happened — except I've already been offered information about Mary Butler." "By who?" "A man named Bland." There was a silence. Sam coughed gently. "I don't know him. What's he doing in this?" "That's what I'd like lo know." "Just sit tight until you get my letler." "Meanwhile do 1 get in touch with Mary Butler?" "You can't," Sain said. "Why not?" "She's nol there." "You mean — " "I mean," Sam said, "that she's not there." Pike thought that over. "You've gol everything straight now?" Sam asked. "Nu," Pike said. "Where's Mary — "s "Pike." Sam's voice cut in briskly. "I wouldn't advise any further discussion of the matter over ihe 'phone. Furthermore, 1 shouldn't make inquiries at your end. Jusl be patient and circum sped until tomorrow. Meanwhile go back to your hotel and have yourself a long sleep." "Sleep," Pike said. "With a chair propped under your door knob," Sam said. "Goodby." Sam hung up. Mary Butler is gone. Pike though. John Clay's efficient and reputedly lovely secretary seems to have disappeared Thai's what. Sam was trying to say. Liquidated for the simple crime of knowing too much. Abou what? And aboul whom? Pike walked back to the library. Mr. Balcman opened the book The girl at Ihc main desk had stamped il carefully, closed it, an ots of dark brown hair piled sainstakingly about a small white "ace. A lillle brown mouse of a girl wilh nibbling lips and a while icalloped collar on her brown dress. "Miss Fellon?" Pike said. She jumped. "You slartled me!" she said. "Sorry," Pike said. "Miss Tudor said you'd be holding a book for ne." "Oh. You're Mr. Calvin." Pike thought she spoke in a one lhal was unnecessarily loud. A man was slooping down behind he main desk placing books on he shelf. Al Miss Fclton's words, ike saw him pause. Something n the set of his neck suggested _reat altentiveness. He stood up and came toward them. He said: "What is it, Miss Felton?" His voice rasped gently as if he had some throat ailment. "It's all right, Mr. Bateman," Vliss Felton said. "It's about a wok Miss Tudor asked me to hold 'or Mr. Calvin." "Oh—Miss Tudor." Bateman Jeered at Pike through thick Slasses that distorted his eyes. The lid of one eye drooped icavily. "What book was it, Miss Fel- .011?" he asked. " 'The Robe'." "Have you a card, Mr. Calvin?" "No," Pike said. "Miss Tudor said lo stamp it out on her card, Mr. Bateman.' Miss Felton held up the card and miled. But Mr. Bateman appeared displeased. He put one land up and touched shiny black nair that looked suspiciously synthetic. "If it's any trouble," Pike said, "just skip it." "It's no Irouble," Miss Fellon said. "It's—" "Where is Ihe book, Miss Felton?" Mr. Bateman took his hand away from the hair and put it out to receive the book. Miss Felton handed it to him. "Now the book stamp," he said. She gave him that. "And Miss Tudor's card." He examined the card carefully. The drooping lid almost covered handed it lo Pike. "Thank you," Pike said. "Thank Miss Tudor," Mr. Bait man said. "It's a seven-day book.
