KawanisCJub to Observe 31 Anniversary Members of the Kiwnnis Club of Hope will observe the Hist anniversary of Khvanis International during tho week of January 20 to 20 with a program based on the service organization's 1040 admin- istraUve theme, "Build for Peace —Unity—Opportunity." Clifford Franks, president of the club, said today that'plans for the unnivoisory meeting, to be held at noon Tuesday, January 22, at the- Barlow Hotel, had been virtually completed. An outstanding feature of the anniversary celebration will be the reading ol a message from Hamilton Holt, Macon, Ga., prominent southern 'industrialist and president-of Kiwnnis International. Founded in Detroit immediately proviou.'i to the beginning of World War 1, Kiwanis International now embraces 153,000 business and professional leadert; in more than 2,300 communities throughout the United Stales and Canada. Its contributions toward the conduct ol' World War II were considered outstanding by the government, especially in the fields of wnr bond sales, scrap collections, blood donations, and aid to servicemen and women. A number of citations 'were awarded to tho organization by various departments of government. Kiwanis International already has thrown its weight behind the industrial reconversion program and is preparing to launch a broad forum program for the purpose of developing public discussion on vita! national issues.

We need not blame Ihem loo much, but we can urge the mothers who lire not going to take care of their children themselves lo pul Ihem in some place where Ihcy will be at least, physically safe and have the care their philandering mothers will not give them. And we can remind the unfaithful wives that the belrayer is generally belrnyed, and lhat the woman who believes thai some chance-met sailor is going to marry her when shu gets a divorce and take care of her children, and "do right by her," as the phrase goes is simply doing a lot of wishful Ihinking. Dear Dorothy Dix: I am an unwed mother with a child three years old whom I support. Soon she will go to school and I don't want her lo suffer the humiliation of being twilled by Ihe olher children for having no father. My sister and her husband love my little girl and would like to adopt her and I am Ihinking of letting them do so for the sake of her having a good homfc and two parents, but I hesitate because I love her more than anything else in the world and some day I'may want her back. What shall I do? .„„,„,_ MISERABLE MOTHER ANSWER: It is a tragic choice you have to make, but it is one ;n which you alone must make the decision, and whichever vou dp it will tear your heart " to pieces. The argument in favor of adoption is that it does more than anything else to save the child from the stigma of illegitimacy, for the cn;ld takes on the name and stalus of ils foster parents But, on the other hand, the mother who makes the supreme sacrifice oi. giving her child for adoption misFes all of the joy of motherhood. Don't do it;, unless you know that you are heroic enough not to repent your deed. Especially in your case be very sure that you wont be jealous of your sister when you hear your baby calling her Mother. fa (Bell Syndicate, Inc.) An intensified drive will be^in next week.

Mother Loses in Effort to Get Her Son Little Rock, Jan. 14 — (/P) A mother's efforts to regain the custody of her seven-year-old son were denied by the Arkansas Supreme Court today on the grounds that she had "stood by far ,too long" to permit the ties of attachment of the child's grandparents Yto "be cast aside at this late- date." ' The ruling reversed a Union (El Dorado) chancery decree awarding the lad, Billy James 'Graves, to his mother, Mrs. Ola Graves French of Warren.- '• Mrs. French and the child's'fa- ther, Bob, were divorced May 7, 1942.

HOW ABOUT A CONTEST? There might .even be a .contest m every family, to '.see which member can collect the largest Pile of clothing. That might make it a little easier for ones ••inclined to hoard things because "I might want it some day" or because "It's still perfectly good," to part with everything that isn't a necessary part of their working wardrobes. Not only would American fanit ihes collect more garments this way, but every member of the iamily would share in the, warm feeling of satisfaction that comes from doing something real arid constructive to help suffering people.
