The Cortes must discuss the measures, for at least two months, and frequently its consideration runs much longer.

"Bui we must ),".•:!;•••,>xt. ,ic vly, step by step, until the people are properly prepared." The generalissimo didn't amplify his reference to the people being "properly prepared," but I have no doubt he had in mind the fact that Spain, being rather set apart from the resl of Europe, has moved slowly through the generations in making major changes. The chief of state "said (here was quite a different point of view in Itie United Stales with its major political parties. Spain, he continued, had some 20- parties under the late republic, and "foreign countries" got control of Spain's policies. Here again El Ca'udillp didn't identify the "foreign countries." Hut the connotation wr.s clear enough. He was referring to Communism. He added thai this couldn't hapen after the revolu-i- lion which overthrew the republic. He was, of course, the leader of that revolt. I asked the generalissimo if he had anything he would like to add apart from 'my questions. He answered: "Wars accelerate political development and this may mean that Spain and America will be drawn . , .

The World War try for a more open and intimate discussion of Spain's problems. • I was encouraged in this decision by the most cordial greeting of the generalissimo when I was Ushered into his private room. Accordingly,' when we had dis-1 posed of the formal queries and answers, I said to him: "If it is permissible I should like to ask another question. It's a very blunt one, and- my sole purpose in putting it is to provide an opportunity for an answer-.which'may help relations between our two countries." El Caudillo gave me- a questioning glance but nodded acqui- proceed carefully, to another regime country must It can't jump haphazardly. "But I would call attention to the fact that the cortes has been :Iunc- lioning for three years. The government doesn't make the laws. All raaHy meant three wars for Spain. "First, there was the war among civilized countries of Europe. Spain remained neutral, and.it was a matter- of regret to her that this war should happen. "Secondly, there was the war against Russia by Germany, and such a war won our sympathy as calculated- to halt Communism in all E'urope." "Thirdly, there was. . the Pacific. In this we greatest sympathy with the war in had the America. Spain was- with the United States all the lime in the war against Japan." Thus ended my irnpormptu interview with Spain's chief of state.

The market turned irregular in later dealings with new crop positions depressed by hedge selling and profit taking. There was considerable switching from near to later months. The doubling of margins on futures trading did not appear to have appreciable effect- on the market. March 1946 reached 25.19, the highest price for futures in 22 years. Late afternoon prices wore 80 cents a bale higher to 5 cents lower.

Would Remove Color Barriers In Church Code Little Rock, Jan. 24 — (/P)— The annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas began the final day of its seventy-fiflh anniversary celebralion here loday after receiving a recommendation .from the Rt. Rev. R. Bland Mil- j chell, bishop of the Diocese, that color barriers be removed from the Church's code. Bishop Mitchell recommended in an address before the convenlion yeslerday that the convention amend its constitution to remove "what discriminations slill remain in it against some of our clergy and laity on the grounds of color.' "We have just won a war for the preservation of human rights and the sanctity of human person ality," he said. "There were white regiments and Negro regiments and Japanese - American regi ments; but they all belonged to the same army. We have white congre gations, but we all belong to tht same church. In all Christian brolh erliness, lei's face il and make on basic lav/ completely conform t it." The convention's two-day meet ing was to be adjourned this afler noon.

O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service The public hcnlth officer liiid just finished his talk an cancer ttr the women's club and invited <|ucs lion from the audience. A woman asked, "Is cancer contagious'.' j" Cancer is not contagious, was his immediate reply, lie had forgotten that many people still believe that it is. Cancer is a growth of our own cells. If a surgeon is operating on a cancer should accidenlly cut his linger with the knife, and if cancer cells were on the knife, no growth would result. The cancel- cells would not survive. Cancer is a lawless growth of our ouw cells and w(nild nol survive in anyone else. The : smallest working part of a body is a cell. There are many different kinds of cells but they have certain features in common. Cells can do anything thai Hie body as a whole can do. They are created, live and die, work and rest'; eat and rid Uicmselves of waste, and reproduce themselves. Cells of one kind never reproduce another kind. OUTLAW CELLS ARE CAUSE Cancer cells arc like normal cells in every respect save one. They reproduce themselves in a lawless way, producing an excessive number for which there is no need. Kvcry cancel' cell posses this power of limitless reproduction. Unless something is done to rid Ilia body of these abnormally growing cells, the patient forfeits his life. Let us trace the development of cancer. One cell gets out of line and starts to reproduce beyond (he needs of the body. At first the .growth does nol show. But as Hie colony increases in size, it forms a lump which, if near the surface, pushes the skin out. A warning .sign is the development of. a lump in any part of the body, or the growth of lump which has been present for some time, ff the lump is localed under the skin, it may destroy the skin covering and form an ulcer or a sore, which is another warning sign. Any sore which docs not heal within a reasonable time should be examined J'or possible cancer. MAY INVADE BLOOD VESSELS Cancer cells may invade blood vessels. If a blood vessel is destroyed, hemorrhage results. Bleeding from any part of the body, or body cavity, should be investigated for cancer. If the growth is near an open ing, the passageway may be blocked. Cancerous growths in the slo- mach block the opening between the stomach and small intestine. Persons in middle and late life who haye never had stomach trouble before should suspect cancer if stomach symptoms develop. But cancer is not contagious. Cancer is a growth of our own cells, and it cannot harm anyone except ourselves. Taken in time and removed before it has a chance to spread, it can be eliminated. DOROTHY DIX In-Law Venom The other day a fine young man married a fine young girl and bore her proudly home lo prcsc-nt her lo his mother. Probably he knew litlle enough of the feminine sex to say; "1 know you two art: going lo love each oilier." Anyway, the mother gave the bride a look lhal would have frozen a polar bear, and said by way of greeting: "I'll never forgive you for taking my sun away from me." Thus began anolher of Ihe domestic wars in which human stupidity and meanness reaches its all lime high. For there is nothing so senseless or so cruel as the way in which so many women deal with the in-law problem. Not sickness, nor want, nor any other affliction, nol even death ilself lias embittered so many lives, caused so many heartbreaks and wrecked so many marriages as Ihe feuding lhat. goes on between mothers and wives over the luckless man who is the son of one and Ihc husband of Ihc other. Inexplicable and Illogical Why there should be (his antagonism between the two women who are the nearest and dearest to a man cannot be explained on any logical grounds. Both love him. Bolh desire his happiness. Bolh would make any sacrifice for him except lo give up Ihe pleasure of Cighling over him. So we have the curious spectacle of noble Christian women, who live in peace and amity with all Ihe balance of Ihe world excepl each other, but who have no compunclions ot conscience about trying to wean a man away from the mother who boro him. or breaking up a home and half-orphaning litlle children by filling a son's mind full of suspicions of his wife. The only excuse that can be made for the way thai in-laws so often troal each other is lhal they are so drunk on jealousy lhal they do nol realize whal they arc doing. The mpthcr-in-law who criticizes everything her son's wife does doesn't deliberately slarl oul lo poison his niind against her, She is just venting her spleen when she urges him not to let Mary boss him, and calls his attention to the fact that Mary has bought a new hat and is playing bridge instead of slaying at home and cooking dinner. If Mother hadn't pointed out his wife's faults, many a husband would, never find oul lhat he got gypped in marriage. Nor does the young wife often slarl oul with malice aforethought to separate her husband from his law relationship can beautiful as it is made' hideous.- The Home Nursing Awards Given AtCoiymbus mother-in-law can really gel a daughter when her son marries if slu will only receive the bride with , open arms and treat her as she dues ; her own girls. Also, by making a i friend of her daughter-in-law she I is binding her sun closer lo her! instead of losing him, as she does if she makes an enemy of her daughter-in-law. And little as the daughter-in-law may suspect it, the smallest play she can make in marriage is to make her molher-in-law her ally who will stand behind her and back her up in the crises that are bound to occur in every marriage. It is a wise woman who welcomes her in-laws with love in her heart instead of a chip on her shoulders.

The jammed program was provided vcsterday as the Rice series, originally sccduled for Feb. 22-2o, was reset for Feb. 4-3 because midterm scholastic examinations will be in progress at the Houston school late next monlh.
