Recruiting Efforts to Be increased Musi—Horcuiling efforts to bo "The recent newspaper accounts announcing the dclav in demobilization of veterans due to a temporary lull in replacements has speo'ded up efforts of recruiting per sonnel to enlist more soldiers in the Regular Army." said Captian Livingston, Commanding Officer of of the US Army Recruiting Station, Tcx.arkana, Arkansas. The Captain staled lhat now. more than ever before, recruiters hnve a good reason to try to enlist ns many men as possible, for only in (Ills way can sufficient personnel be acquired lo replace essential overseas soldiers. "Men with former ratings are urged to consider reenlislmcnt in Ihe Regular Army within 20 days after Iheir discharge and not Inter than 31 January 194G, for by doing so they retain such former grade permanently, and secure uo'lo a 90 days roenlislmenls furlough," Captain Livingston concluded. o • We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer So the GI's in Japan can ge for $07 a, Japanese wife who wil be easy lo shed when the GI sails for home. And we tiro shocked by Hit story. Why? Because Ihe price is so cheap? That is really Ihe only reason I we huve.ior looking down on the' Japanese women for making these "temporary marriages." Because tho same kind of marriages exist in our own country. The difference is, to get a temporary wife in America a man usually has to have a lot of money. Then he can pick up a beautiful girl and with the promise of furs and diamonds and all the luxuries that go with them, and her knowledge that when he is tired of her she can get alimony or a cash settlement. An that it will be lemporay everybodys knows, including the bride, even though it is strictly legal according to our laws. Sure, wo have a system for temuorary marriages made simple by divorce mcccas like Reno right here in America. So we had bettor remember that, before we look down our noses on tho women of Japan who are willing to marry a GI for a price nnd for a while NOT MUCH mFFERENCE Tho main difforecne between the Japanese girls who ure willing to become "temporary wives" and the American girls who are willing lo become the third or fourth or fifth wife of some playboy is that' the Japanese girls make no prelense that tho marriage is going to be anything, but temporary. And while the American girl who is willing to make a "temporary marriage" excepls to get a handsome settlement out of the alliance, the Japanese girl asks only'a modest sum. If 'we are going to be shocked by "temporary marriages" in Japan let's not forget society accepts a similar sel-up right here in our own enlightened country.

The Doctor , Says: By WILLIAM A, O'BRIEN, M<&, Written for NEA Service Mnn acquires triclilnosis (pork worm infection) from eating Infected pork and tho hog gets it from anting scraps of uncooked infected pork in Kiirbngo. The Un- pd States lags behind other na- ions in the control of this dis- nse. Approximately 70 per cent of Am- ricnn pork is prepared in plants nder government inspection and I carries the stamp "U.S. inspect- 2cl and passed." This Inbel on ion-processed pork does not indicated that the meat is free from iving trichinae. But if the pork roduct is the special variety which * sold to be en ton without cook- ig it will be free of the infection. Sixteen per cent of the population of the United States shows evidence of trichinosis at post- not-torn examinalion, while more borough study methods reveal hat one out of three has had his disease. In the majority of :nses, mild infections do not produce many symptoms. The more evere cases have stomach and nteslinal Upsets from 3 to 14 days ifler eating infected pork. When he parasites invade the muscles of man, sever pain and disability ollow. Deaths occur in 5 to G )cr cent of cases in which the in- ection is recognized. MICROSCOPE SHOWS TAINT If pork i>3 examined under a mic- croscope, infected meat can be lectcd. Germany, Denmark, Sweden, France. Argentina, and Chile use this method. Canada, England, Hawaii, and Kentucky, Oregon, and New York have regulations providing lor only feeding cooked garbage to hogs, which destroys trichinae n pieces of pork in the garbage. Freezing, cooking, smoking and curing pork will destroy trichinae in the meat. The worms are killed at 137 degrees Fahcrnheit when all parts of the meat are subjected to the hnat. Raw pork in commerical quantities may be rendered free of live trichinae by holding it at zero for 72 hours, o i. West Cage DOROTHY DIX Teen Age Marriages 'arme ragainst city dweller, work- ef agaitisf. employer, people agflinst their own governments. "They seek only to do us mis- Dear Miss Dix: I nm a yoiftig man of 111 and am very much in love with a tfirl of 14. We have been in love for three years and we know thai it is true love. Both Of our parents know that we are going lo gel married, but her parents rire not Willing right now. I am a business man and have my own business and $1,400 in the bank. Also, my parents are wealthy. We plan to so to college after we arc married. We think thai is best, because then we will have our minds on our books and not on each other* I would like lo have your suggestions. W. C. Marriage is for Adults Answer: You won't like my suggestion, which is lhat you wait until you are grown-up before you get married. • Marriage is for adults and not tor children. Statistics show thai the percentage of: divorces is far greater among boy and girl marriages than it is among older people. And that represents only a small part of the tragedy, for there are thousands upon thousands of marriages that are nothing but long endurance tesits lo Ihe men and women who enlered into Ihem when they were too young to know what they were going lo be themselves, or what they would want in a life partner. The theory that when an unform- ad boy and girl marry they will be congenial because they grow up together is the crudest lie in the world. When teen-agers marry, it it sheer chance how. they will develop, and almost always one outgrows the other and they have nothing in common. One has a good mind. The other is dull and stupid. One is gay and pleasure-loving. The ol'ner is a stick-by-the-fire who never wants to go anywhere. One is warm-hearted and affectionate. The other is a human frigidaire. And so they bore each other to tears and only too often in their maturity they meet the one who should have been their mate. If you have no concern for your own fate, let me beseech you to have mercy on this little 14-year- old girl who, you say, has been in love with you since she was 11 years old. Don't mai'ry her before she is old enough to know what she is do ing. You know that no girl of that ago is capable of an enduring, mature love, and to marry her is nothing short of cradle-snatching. Don't commit such a crime against her. Give her a chance at selecting her mate. In all of the thousands of letters that I get from unhappily married people almost every one starts with: "I married when I was too young." Title Tie By The Associated Press The Arkansas Razorbacks dropped from first place to second and then regained the top spot in the Southwest Conference last week without playing a game and today shared the lead with the surprising Baylor Bears. Responsible for the shakeup in the standings, in which both Rice and Texas Christian, who shared the lead temporarily, were knocked down the ladder, were Baylor and the Texas Longhorns. The Golden Bears dealt a severe blow to the Rice Owls' tillo hopes Dear Dorothy Dix: I am engaged to a boy who is in the service. We were lo be married as soon as he came home. Now ho is coming and Ihe lime is so close lhal people have been giving me showet-s. But lately he has changed 1 so I don'l know What to think. Instead of Writing me love letters he bosses me and tells me that I have to learn a few things, arid fast. He makes remarks lhat are uncalled, for and says things boys dofi't say lo girls. I am all mixed-up and Unhappy. Do you Ihink I should break our engagement What shall I do with the shower presents? What shall I say lo people when they ask me why I have broken my engagement? Unless he changes a lot I do not think we can be happy. What shall I do? Jane Answer: Wait until the boy comes home and see how you feel about him then. But my.earnest advice is not to marry a boy who has evidently lost his tasle for you and who is Irying to boss you even before marriage. And, above all, don't tie up with a grouch. Shower presents are rarely valuable, so you mighl keep Ihe stockings and the lowels your friends have given you as a sorl of consolation prize. chief. They must not prevail." Elaborating on foreign the president said: policy, .1. When difficulties arise between the wartime Allies the United States will not try to remove them by sacrificing its ideals or vital interests; neither will it ignore the ideas and vital interests "of oUr friends." 2. The United States intends to preserve the voice of smaller nations in the writing of peace treaties with Germany and Japan, as ho said it insisted their voice be preserved in the making of peace treaties with Italy, Rumania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland. 3. "The peace we week is not peace for twenty years — it is a permanent peace." 4. Even the support of the strongest nations cannot guarantee a peace unless it is "infused with the quality of justice for all nations." 5. The Allied control council for Germany has made "encouraging progress in the face of most seri- difficulties." Transfer Dear Miss Dix. I am in love with a girl who has a husband and two small children. She drinks heavily and has no sense of responsibility or Ihe value of money.. We broke up and I am miserable because I love her lerribly. Whal do you think our chances of happiness would be if she were free? Worried Answer: None, brother. You are certainly hunting for trouble if you marry a woman who has no single anility that recommends her as wife. from military to civilian personnel of American participation in the government of occupied territory in Europe will be urged at the "earliest practicable date." 6. In the new pattern of Allied control for Japan, the United States, with the "full approval of its partners," has retained primary authority and responsibility. It will conVnuc to clo so until the Japanese people choose their own form of government. 7. Gen. George C. Marshall, special envoy to China, is "ably executing" the policy of supporting efforts to bring about a cessation of Chinese civir strife and in broadening the basis of representation in the Central Government. The president repeated that demobilization is proceeding as cjuickly~as possible consistent -With nilitary needs. Speaking again on the strike sit- ation, the chief executive aserted: "Within the framework of the /age-price policy, there has been efinite success, and it is expected iat this success will continue in a ast majority of the cases arising the months ahead.

Lois got up and opened the door. It was Henry. He stared doubtfully at Lois. "A message for Mr. Calvin," he said. "I'll take it," Lois said. Henry handed her an envelope and was gone without waiting for a lip. "Very slrange behavior for a bell-boy ," Lois said, and begari to open tho envelope. Pike came over, took it gently from her hands, and said: "Did. Sam say you were to read my mail?" "That's not mail," Lois said. Pike read the message. "I am waiting al the service entrance. I have something to lell you. Please hurry. Marcia Clay." Pike put the note in his coat pocket. "What is it?" Lois said. "Nothing." Pike picked up his hat. Lois linked her arm in his. She smiled up at him. "Exciting," she said, "looking' out for you." "Wes," Pike said. "I'm going to give you a couple of hours off." He sat her firmly in a chair. "Which one it it," Lois said, "Clay or Tudor?" "It's Clay," Pike said. "She's got something to tell me, "I'll bet," Lois said "If anyone calls, take the message." "I won't be here," Lois said. "Well, wherever you are, watch your step." "Watch your own step, darling," * * * . Pike found Marcia Clay behind the wheel of a s'tation wagoji, parked behind a clump of blue s.pruccs. She hnjd on a sleeveless white dress and a white tennis cap over her blond hair. She sai'd: "Get in." Pike got in and she swung tho stolion wagon around on to the Valley road, She pressed her foot down" on the accelerator pedal. "I know a place where we can get some Swedish coffee and smoked turkey sandwiches," she said. "Interested?" , "Sure," Pike said. For ten minutes she concenlraled on her driving. Then, "I undersland you're in a litlle trouble," she said. "Trouble?" he,said. "The sheriff was up lo see you," better." Marcia Clay's lips curved in a mysterious smile. She put her hand into the breast pocket of her dress, drew out a handkerchief, and passed it to Pike. "Like this?' Pike looked at it. handkerchief he had Bateman's. He said: It was the dropped at "Where did you get this?" "That's not important. What's important : is lhat you've got it." She braked the station wagon and turned into a gravel driveway, "Whose was the lipstick?" "So it was you last flight," Pike said. A little frown appeared on her brow. She brought the car to a halt before a little place of whitewashed brick that sat on a side- hill." it had the words Lindemann's Coffee House printed on the side in, script and there was an iron Handrail at the entrance. Marcia Clay shut off the motor and took the keys out of the ignition. She sat back and studied Pike thoughtfully She said: "Yes, I Was at Bateman's last night. Looking for you." "For me?" She nodded. "Lesley Hitt saw you leave the hotel. He called father. Then she said. "Oh, Parcher," Pike said. He wasn't going to volunteer anything. Let her talk. "I can help you," she said "Can you?" Pike said. She nodded. "Definitely." She slowed down and looked over at him with a smile. "Parcher is a pushover." "Yes," Pike said. "I've already pushed him over once." "Not really?" >> "Literally. He had a search warrant. He found a bottle of pills in my bug. Then he began spitting on the carpet." She was listening intently with the slalion wagon scarcely moving along Ihe mountain road. VI didnt mind that especially," Pike went on. "It wasn't my carpet. But when one of them hit my shoe—" He paused. "You hit him," Marcia said. "No." Pike shook his head, slarled lo He made a grab for my arm and I sort of pushed him into Ihe corner." Marcia laughed. Then she said soberly: "Bui lhat doesn't help your case much." "It smashed the botlle of pills." She was watching the road again. Her violet eyes were shadowed and Pike could see a hint of grimness at the corners of her mouth. She said: "It's obvious that the bottle of pills was planted." "I know ihal," Pike said. "What puzzles me is the fact that they went to the trouble of father called Bateman's. him over the extension. I heard I heard someone take off the receiver anc the clock struck 11. But that was all. Then I made tracks for Bate< man's." "Why?" Pike said, "To warn you." "About what?" "I was afraid father might do something to you. He was frightfully worked up and.'Hitt-had tolc him .-thai Balemari' had.'ln^dHo get in ; touch .with; you .earlier in the evening." 1 ; - : ; M • i .

Bui he truck one new note in calling for 'major steps" by the government o enforce anti-trust laws—suspend- d in a number of fields during the war—to "encourage new and competing enterprises in every way." In the military field, Mr. Truman recommended an army-navy trength of 2,000,000 men for this calendar year and said continuance of the draft beyond ils ex- liring dale of May 16 will be nec- i'ssa'rjr" if- enlislments do not obtain necessary replacements of those demobilized. Augmenting his earlier foreign jolicy statements, he asserted American peace policy must rest 'upon justice no less than upon jower." He urged the "grealest dispatch" n the world of the United Nations commission lo control atomic energy and expressed "great hope" "or development of "mutually ef- eclive safeguards" in such con- ;rol. He said he also believed it )ossible that the atomic bomb will >e outlawed as a war weapon. While reserving for a later message detailed discussion of the pro- josecl $3,750,000,000 loan to Britain, VIr. Truman said granting this credit would contribute lo "easing he transition problem of one of our major partners in the war." The chief executive said he had combined the first postwar budget with his state of the union message jecause "it has become necessary o formulate and determine the government program in the light of national economic conditions as whole." "Such an approach," he asserted, "has become imperative if he American political and econom- c system is to succeed under the conditions of economic instabilily and uncertain! ywhich we have to situation will exist in the Pacific. By the end of June,- he said, nine out of ten who were serving in the armed forces on VE-day will have been released. Demobilization will continue thereafter, but at a slower rale, ''determined by our military responsibilities." The president renewed requests for action by Congress on 21 pieces of legislation, including measures to raise minimum wages, to etf- tend price and rent controls a full year beyond June 30, and to extend priority and inventory controls of the Second ' War Powers Act beyond its June 30 expiration dale. He also asked again for legislation' to orovide ceiling prices for old and new houses, universal military training, and merger of the armed services arid said food subsidies should be continued. As in his January 3 radio appeal lo the people, in Which He asked them to get behind Congress for action instead of Words on measures he deems essential, the president said of his list today: "A few — a very few — of these recommendations have been enacted into law by the Congress. Most of them have not. x x x I urge upon the Congress early consideration of them. Some are more important than others, but all are necessary." Terming inflation "still our chief worry," Mr. Truman said that because of its "dangerously powerful" pressures and because 1 future governmental costs call for large revenues he cannot ' recpmmend any further tax reduction 'now. In urging further extension of price controls, he said the cost of living indetf rose -only three per cent since the Roosevelt hold-tne- line order of May, 1943, because price controls were vigorously ad^ ministered. But he said since, September, 1945, when he last addressed Congress, the strength of inflationary pressures has been demonstrated. Retail sales jumped in the closing months of 1945 over previous peaks in 1944, and prices thsoughout the entire economy "have been pressing hard against x x x ceilings. Voluminous ^ Message May Help Senators fly JAMES E ROPER Washington, Jan. 21 —' President T.ruman, • who Congress to pass the Fair Employment Practices bill, fotifid Himself today in the strange position of indirectly helping a Hlilnlst- er against it. It was all unintentional bn the president's part. All he did was to send to the House and Sehate a voluminous message of many thousands of Words, including the 1947 federal budget and his state* -of the union: address. But to Southern Democrats, who ai'e filibustering the FEPC bill in the Senate, the message offered a respite from their self-imp'osed task of trying to talk the measure to death. It gave them a chance to rest their vocal chords while the document Was redd. The budget and . accompanyitig message arc whopping documents, about the size of the New York telephone directory. Usually, the clerks who.read them skip an occasional page, or chart since all congressmen have their own copies. ' • There was considerable doijbt, however,, whether' the filibustering Southerners, ever in : guesi?of new ways to delay the,.j!EgC hfllj would tolerate omissi6n,.of. a .siri&te perp- osition ..'.,•'.. Before -the...Christian-era there w'as an ascetic w,ay of livftig known as, .Monasticisrn." '$ The prices of real estate, which cannot now be controlled under the law, are "rising rapidly'." "The inflationary pressures on prices and rents, with relatively few exceptions," Mr. Truman asserted, "are now at an all-time peak. Unless the price control act is renewed there will be no limit to which our price levels would spar. Our country would face a national disaster." He recommended emergency and permanent housing legislation. He said inflation in house prices is growing daily and .authority to fix ceilings is essential if veterans^ and other prospective homo owners are to be protected against "skyrocketing" prices. On the long-range side, the president recommended prompt enactment of legislation along the lines of pending bills to set up a permanent national housing agency to encourage better housing for low- income groups.
