In this supreme effort ito build a peace, Attlee asserted 'we must and will succeed." But already King George VI had sol the solemn tone of the session in a speech to tho chief delegates at a glillering state dinner at S. James Palace las night. "It is in your hands," he said, "to make or mar the happiness, of millions of your fellow men, and of millions yet unborn. "It is for ycu to lay the foundations of a new world, where such •i conflict as that which lately brought our world to the verge of annihilation : must'never-be rerietft- ed where men and women ~ cgn find an opportunity to realize to the full the good that lies in each of them." Many officials, including U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, expected t heldegeates'H Byrnes, expected the delegates , would move smoothly through the . iob of organizing: the assembly. Preliminary estimates were that lithe task might be'completed .'in from thre eto four weeks. The as- 11 sembly would then adjourn to reassemble later this year at permanent UNO headquarters in the United States. Byrnes said he expected lo re- I main in London until the organiza- [jtion was well on its way. His prin- ' cipal concern is with the creation of a special commission to work out atomic energy controls. This furnished the chief prc-con- I forcnce excitement here when Sen- |ator Vandenbcrg (R-Mich) of the American delegation questioned whether the commission would have powers so broad that it might demand atomic bomb secrets from the United States. Byrnes issued a statement denying this, and Vandenberg said he was completely reassured that the secrets would be adequately safeguarded. Byrnes said Russia, Britain and Canada — the other countries which initially sponsored the commission proposal —shared his views on the commission's limited powers. Governor Laney, upon being advised of the order, requested thc Eignth Service Command xo countermand or modify the order, which called for thc closing of at least two branch camps. Sonic 8,QUO prisoners of war arc in the state. Many are working on rms. Laney asked that the prisoners not be moved until Feb. 2« or that tne numoer scheduled to be moved be cut to 1,000.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Ninety-five per cent o£ the patients encountered in an influenzn epidemic niivc simple flu. Fever lasts two to five days, and convalescence is uncomplicated, although many patients complain of weakness afterward. The bronchitis which sometimes follows an attack of influenza is a continuation of thc dry, irritating cough which develops early in the. disease. At first there is burning in the chest and a feeling of tightness, but later expectoration of a small amount of sputum accompanies the harassiiiK cough. When cough persists, tempeni- lurc may rise for a day or so alter the influenza is over, and the bronchitis will last three or four weeks. Coughing may awaken the patient from sleep and is particularly troublesome on arising in the morning. As the cough tends to disappear in three or four weeks, special chest examinations are indicated if it ner- sists beyond this time. Influenza in children may be accompanied by an infection in the sinuses or cars. Occasionally in both children and adults, influenza is complicated by pneumonia, and in the large epidemics in the past, this was the most common cause of death.

Page Three DOROTHY DIX Wife Like Mother A man writes me that he has reached the age when he would like to marry and settle down and lave a home and children, taut that 10 is unable to do so because he is looking for a wife like his mother was, and he can't find her. According to his account, his mother was a composite of every feminine charm and virtue. She was afflicted with neither nerves nor temper, She never nagged. She was always bright and cheerful. She ran her house without noise or friction. Perfect meals appeared on her table as if by rnagic. She never ran up bills for clothes. And, above all, she spent her life catering to her husband and making things pleasant for him. If you will take these few specifications for a wife into consideration, you will easily sec why this bachelor hasn't found one. There ain't no sech an animal left, if, indeed, there ever was one. The slave wife passd away with the Dodo, and if one of the species were still extant she wouldn't be in any man's kitchen. She would be the prize specimen of prehistoric fauna in a museum. BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT, BUT It is, however, a beautiful and a touching thing that men do idealize their mothers, and that the reason that many a man never marries is because he can' find a replica of Mother, just as he can never find any apple that tastes like the little red ones that grew in the orchard back of the house when he was a boy. And just as he throws away the apples because it hasn't the flavor he remembers, so he passes over thc girl who is meek and mild and colorless and who has all the earmarks of a husband-spoiler like Mom. Of course, there never was any current epidemic, although pneumonia cases are in excess of the average for recent years, the death rate remains low. USUALLY ATTACKS LUNGS The influenza virus has a special affinity for the lining membranes of the respiratory passages from the tip of the nose to the bottom of the lungs. When it invades the body, it usually does, not attack any other tissue. Some cases of influenza are accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and the name of "intestinal flu" has been applied to this complication. Chronic weariness following influenza is thought by some physicians to be caused by low blood pressure. Some patients complain of difficulty in making decisions, loss of memory, and depression. This is not a permanent condition as recovery occurs with a few weeks of rest, nutritious diet and change of scenery. NO SPECIFIC CURE There is no specific cure Cor influenza. As soon as a patient has the first symptom he should go to bed, remain there until convalescence is well established and the danger of complications is past. If high fever is present, extra quantities of fluid should be taken. Irritation of the respiratory passages is relieved by providing •warm, moist air in the room. Vaccines or serum are useless in treatment of the disease. The sulfa drugs and penicillin arc not of value except for complications. such dame as the paragon a man believes his mother to have been, and if Grandpa married Grandma in the belief that she would never hand him any back-talk and thai she was a financial wizard who could conjure good meals out of the air, or thai she was going to spend her time rubbing his fur Ihe right way, ho must have gotten a terrible jolt when he got better acquainted with the Missus. But, even so, and supposing that there were a patient Griselda still to be found, it is doubtful if the modern man would want her. For certainly the qualities that lure a man to the altar in these days are far different from what they were in Mother's time, and the boy friend is much more apt to marry a girl because she car make a snappy comeback than because she can make good bread The. truth -is that men expect more of their wives now than the; have ever done before. Their mothers called it a day when thev were good housekeepers and looked after the children and were reasonably easy to gel along with. But the modern husband expects his wife to be a good cook and bottle-washer and baby-tender and also to be an entertaining and amusing companion, an A-l orcsij agent, and a social asset. And if she doesn't come up to demands and watch her step, she is apt to land in the divorce courl. So Ihe bachelor who is seeking a wife like his mother, had as well call the search off. For, in the first place he won't find her, and if, in the second place, he did discover his dream girl, the chances are she would bore him to tears. For what the modern man wants in a wife is exactly what he wanls in an automobile. The old- fashioned model was a good, strong, reliable, family vehicle, but what he craves is the latest streamlined model, with all the new gadgets, and with plenty of fresh paint on it.

She resigned." "Why?" "I don't know. I merely know she's not with Uncle John any more, because I am doing some of her work now." " Was she—fired?" She was distractingly beautiful •and it was difficult to remember that she was John Clay's niece who might on that account look lor an opportunity to dispose of him one way or another.

Pike said. "Then why stay?" Ho stared at her. He flipped his cigaret into the fountain. It made a brief hissing sound. He turned and looked through Ihe darkness inlo her face. He said: "Why don't you be honest with me. You've got me down here for a reason. What is il?" "I want you to leave THE SADI DLEBACK," she said. "So does John Clay." "Bul not for the same reason.' "What's your reason?" she said "I rather—like you," she said. Her lips were only inches away. Even in the darkness they were red and inviting. He leaned forward and kissed her hard on thc lips. "That's for worrying about me,' he said. She slapped his face. "That's for jumping at conclu sions," she said. Briskly she fas tcncd her wrap. "I think we had better not go in together," she said.
