I'd snil right off — but. whan I hit the ground I'd ask him 'when am T (ioing home'." Marshal said that he harl a few trades he wanted to make. "I want to swap a GI latrine for a tile bathroom," he said. "I want to swap an army cot for an Jnncr- spriiiR mattress covered with white sheets and with grcon pillow cases." The band struck up: "I Wana Go Home." Whartmnn asked the crowd if they were going to let American ships carry Chiang Kai-Shek's troops and help put clown "a legitimate light for indcpc'iidcmcc''. The crowd thundered: "No". He asked it they were going to let American ships be used to quell another fight for indcpcndncc in Java and the crowd again shouted its disapproval. "The Germans may laugh at this," one GI said, "but there' is certainly more to it than they think. Wo don't want to occupy the Philippines. They are going to be independent this venr, aren't they?" While the Manila mass moeliru' was going on, a similar rally was held at Batangas where Olid enlisted men approved three resolutions, one to President Truman, one to Congress and one to the Senate military affairs committee, urging quicker demobilization. More than 2,. r )00 men marched four abreast to Styer's headquarters in the morning and sent a i'ivc- man delegation in to say they wanted to go home, and quickly. Late in tho afternoon, hundred:; of soldiers swarmed to the city hall for another protest session. They arrived by the scores in army trucks. The soldiers were angry at statements by Patterson and high army officers that iheir return homo would be delayed because it harl been ducidcd not to make iurlher drastic cuts in Ihe necessary discharge point score.

Main HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS The Doctor Says: By DR. WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN WrlUnn for NEA Service The blood pressure fluctuates normal conditions: patients liiyh blood pressure also show Hie same fluctuation. 1 -. If you have hlflh blond pressure, you should not become too concerned over differences in your pressure readings. • , / , .,.' I iy perl elision 1 "'(highi'blodd pros- sure) is a disease >in SMilcjiJonc of the symptoms IdrhiRh'^j-erfiturfi Diagnosis of hypertension>!i:j ;hot inrttfe unless the other S'i'gtia ' nhd symptoms of the disease, are present. '' Sleep usually causes a fall in blood pressure... , Observers who have lecorded the pressures of sleeping patients have found that noisy surroundingfc; and restlessness cruise a rise. Pressure 'is probably lowest in the middle 'of tho night morning. Blood pressure and rises toward is increased if readings are taken of men and women during periods o£ physical activity; the pressure quickly returns to normal after the activity i.s stopped. This reaction i.s used as one of "the tests for the eficiency of the circulation. EnUng a meal i.s followed by a slight rise in pressure. Pressure in the morning i.s several degrees lower than in the evening. There is nlso a difference in readings in the two rums, the pressure tending to be higher in the first arm examined. OVERWEIGHT CAUSES RISE Overweight is usually accompanied by an increase in blood iJiessure. It is possible, that the thickness of the tissues of the arm which must be compressed under the blood pressure machine cuff may account for some of the increased pressure, but when direct readings arc made on the obese, their pressure i.s higher than normal subjects. Loss of weight is accompanied by lowering of blood pressure. Blood pressure goes down when wo stand up. This is due to a stating that he had no control over the discharge system. He said their desire to become civilians was "entirely understandable." However, he s'nid, the United Sties has large world responsibilities to meet. "vVc have won the final combat victory, but if we do not follow through with our task we shall surrender the goals we have gained," he said. Mimeoprnphecl handbills charging "double talk" by army commanders about discharges were denied by Slyer. "To my knowledge there's been no 'double talk' or broken promises," he said, "and certainly there are no ulterior mo_- tives on the part of any responsible official of the government, either military or civilian." Slyer conceded that some statements have been issued cruising justified alarm about redeployment, but said they were from "wholly unauthorized sources" or were incomplete versions of long- Pdge Three DOROTHY DIX Respect Husband's Mother Dear Miss Dix: What should I do or say when my mother-in-law comes to my houcc and gives me advice on how to roar my baby when it is different from what the doctor says? My mother is modern and says I should give her a piece of my mind, and that when she comes to my house I should pack my grip and leave my husband to entej-fain her.. , I ihavei tasked ray :husband to go Co 'Sec hip,• inothdtjjial''her house and 'not'Have h£j, come to mine. Wotild y'dii 'advise" this? He refuses to clo this. J have a very nervous disposition, anyway. i • ••'•>• ELEANOR ANSWER:.! should say, Klcanor that you are not only of a nervous disposition, but that you have 'an exceedingly selfish and overbearing and unreasonable one, and that if you don't watch out it is going to lose you your good husband. MATE HAS RIGHTS You speak of your home as "my house" and you want to shut it;; doors in your husband's mother's face. Have you never considered that your husband supports it, that the roof over your head and the food you cat come from him, and that but for his labor you would have no home? Don't you think that that entitles him to some say-so in it and to the right to have his mother treated as an honored guest in it? You say that your mother i.s modern and that she advises you to insult your mother-in-law. Divorce is modern, too, and the first thing you know your mother 'is going to be first aid to your having one. The things that keep, a home together and a husband lovr ing his wife are patience and forbearance and kindness a,nd consideration. They are old-fashioned, but they work. As to what to say to your mother- in-law when she advises you about the baby, my earnest Advice 'to you is not to say anything if you can't agree with her. Listen respectfully. Any woman who lias reared a family of children can give many tips to a mother with her first baby. Do you know that the doctors now are coming around a baby and rocking him to sleep doesn't kill it on tho spot. Insiead, it .soothes the baby and makes it happy. Dear Dorothy Dix: We are a group of girls in high school who want, to know what, has become nt the boys we used to know. We usod to have plenty of dales, but now Iho boys have become so independent Hint they avoid us as if wp were poison..They «0 ; stag t.o all school activities and .sftrbf* il.v parties, niid .they' won't, >sp"dnkf- to girls who arc forced J.p KO With boys from other, school's because Ine boys from our own won't ask us. What can, We do' UNSUCCESSFUL DATE : RS ANSWER: The remedy is in your own hands. Give the boys a dose of Iheir own medicine. Ignore thorn as they ignore you, and beat them to H. What girls never seem to understand i.s that boys can no more have good times flocking by themselves; than girls can. It takes the two sexes to throw a good party. So if you will just let the boys alone and not try to dale them, and especially if you will not invite a single one of them to any ot 1 your private parties or school activities, you will bring thorn to time. Dear Miss Dix: My husband and I have just been married a few months and I am trying hard to please him. I cook everything ho would like and he won't eat"any of it. He just wants his rolls and. milk. Please give me some 1 suggestion as to what I should do/'' NEWLYWED ANSWER: Did you snatch your husband out of the cradle before he cut his teeth that ho still .sticks to his baby food? The best wav to cure him of it and get him oil a proper diet i.s to cook good, savory meals and invite company to help you cat them. They will laugh at; your husband and make so much fun of him he will be ashamed to have such a nursery habit. But, my, what a cinch for a to the old Grandmother formula for bride to have a husband who can rearing children?

He said it totals 235,000, against 600,000 last Oct. 1. shift in the blood, but it quickly returns to normal. The same reaction occurs in other changes in the body position. Alcohol tends to cause a fall in blood pressure, which may be extreme in deep intoxication. CLIMATE HAS BEARING Climate and temperature have an important bearing on blood pressure, which is lower in warmer climates. This may be caused by higher air temperatures or by greater relaxation under such conditions. When troops are sc:nt to tho tropics, blood pressures become lower at; once. It may well be that the benefit obtained by in, dividuals who spend their win- I ters in warm places is this effect ' on blood pressure. Blood pressures taken under home conditions are lower than those observed in the doctor's office. Feelings, cither expressed or held in, cause pressure to rise." Any emotion can affect the blood pressure. We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer "Dishpan hands are smoother than silk. Scientists sny so.' 1 Poor Mama.

By.Lionel Moshet THE STORY: Sam Pringle, Piku's employer, wires him to return to New York immediately. Pike refuses. He receives a din- Clay. ner invitation from John Bland suggests they pool their information. Pike says no. VII Pike turned in at the gates of Number Ten Orchard Hill as a '.•lock in town struck 8. There had been thunder shower. The leaves dripped rain and the blades of grass on John Clay's lawn glistened like tiny icicles. The houseman who took Pike's hat had on a white coat. "It's Mr. Calvin," Pike told him. "Oh," -.someone said from the hall. "You're early.' Pike could see iier standing at the foot of the stairway. She stooped to adjust a buckle 'on her slipper, then straightened and came toward him. "I'm Marcia." She put out hoi- hand and grasped his firmly. --Father told me you wore coming." She smiled and Piko ,-Jookcd at the bold red lips arid eyes that were bright and searching. He knew there was a Marcia Clay. Some years back she hud appeared quite regularly in the rotogravure sections of the newspapers, but since her mother's death, she had retired from publicity. Now, as Pike sjiw the long black velvet dinner dross against all this shining blond loveliness, he wondered if he was being subjected to a little propaganda. "In hero," she said aiid linked her arm through his. Marcia Clay patted the divan beside her. "Sit here," she said. "Father will be down soon." Pike sat down, took out his cigareU;, and offered her one She took it and Pike held his lighter for her. She loaned forward, angled a glance up at him through long lashes, then put her cjgarct to the flame. "Pike Calvin." She inhaled cautiously then lot the smoke trickle out through pursed lips. "You must, be somebody." "No," he said. "It isn't, necessary to be modest." she said. "But it is necessary to be somebody." "Oh. yes." She nodded. "If you were nobody, father wouldn't bother with you. Unless She paused, knocked an ash from her cigaret with a forefinger that was tipped with green. "What do you do, Mr. Calvin?" "I'm a reporter." "Heavens! Does father know that?" "Why?" Pike said. "Doesn't your lather like reporters?" "Uuh-uuh," she '-said. "Father doesn't like anybody, really Especially reporters. Especially lately. Since they've been buzzing liim about that conference business. Shall we have a drink?" Pike started to get up to mix arinks. but she put a hand against his chest. "Sit still," she said. "This is one thing I do well. A daiquiri?" l^imir .Copyright, 1945, •NEA Service, Ir>»X: "Fine," Pike said. She found some Persian limes on an amply stocked bar-wagon and went to work. . She manipulated the shaker, unscrewed the cap from the nozzle, and handed Pike a glass. He watched the creamy beads gather on the surface of the liquor and he had an odd feeling of wariness. One of these days, he thought, one of the drinks will bo spiked. And he was going right on with things against the advice of Sam Pringle, who talked guardedly about the disappearance of John Clay's secretary, Mary Butler. Pike had expected to see Mary Butler. He had not hoped to SOL- John Clay. Now Mary Butler was not here and John Clay had invited Pike to dinner. "Here's to us," Marcia Clay raised her glass. "To us," Pike said. The door chimes sounded. Marcia Clay turned her supple budv to look into the hall. "It's Fay and Gill," she said. "Who?" "My cousin and Gill Manson." Pike could see Fay Tudor coming through the door. Her auburn hair was swept up over those incisive green eyes and her straight slim figure was sheathfoi in a long white dress. She looked very beautiful, very calm, and very self-contained. Behind her was a tall man in a while mess-jacket. He wa? wide-shouldered, slim - hip p o cl Good-looking, Pike noted, bill with a touch of acid in the dark eyes and broad sulky mouth. "Fay, darling." Marcia stood up and took Fay's hands. "Have you met Mr. Calvin?" Fay looked at Pike deliberately "How do you do, Mr. Calvin?" she said. "And Mr. Manson." : "Pleased," Manson said in ;; tone that revealed he was nut pleased. •'Your I'ii'st visit, Mr. Calvin?" Pike nodded. "Staying long?" Manson was busy with' his drink. "Not long," Pike said. . "Business or pleasure?'' Pike looked at him. '•Gil," Marcia said, "after all.'
