Her father, John Johnson, a machanic, objected lo the two marrying bo- cause- of their youth. Wayne's mother, Mrs. Anna Matthews, also had told her son she thought they were too young.

Senator Wants UNO Members to See Test Washington, Jan 24 —(/P)— The .navy today took the wraps off ils plans to" test the atom bomb against scapower and Senator Mc- llviahon (D-Coniu said he thought ! United Nations Security Council I members ought to witness the historic experiment McMahon, chairman of Senate atomic energy committee which received details of the navy's plans, also lokl reporters thc lest might cost more than $100,000 — dcgending upon which way it is counted An armada of 97 fighting ships, ranging from landing ships to giant carriers and batllowagons, will be used as guinea pigs in the test which may revolutionize sea warfare. The operations will begin in May off the mid-Pacific Marshall Islands. Asked about the probable cost, McMahon told reporters: "I don't think it is possible to estimate thai a'l Ibis lime. What value are you going lo pul on Ihe largel ships, for instance? If you look their original cost, then possible the figure of $100.000.000 thai has been mentioned somewhere might not be enough: But I don't think it could be figured that way." McMahon said the atomic corn- millce certainly would be represented at the tesl, although lie didn'l know whether all 11 members would attend. Ho also said he favors permilting foreign observers lo be present too, and will consult with the Stale Department on the question. "I think Ihe entire security council ought to witness thc le'sl." he added. : W. H. P.

They estimated this" 'nay have dropped to around S'lfl 00.000,000 today. u ' UL '''a $jii, This still makes (he government >.v tar Ihe largest insurance "company in the world and its business almost equals, in some categories, the total of all private American companies combined "The percentage of people keeping their policies after World War II is about double that of World War I," Harold M. Breining, assistant veterans administrator in charge of insurance, said in an interview. "We are opening this campaign to sell Ihe policy at the lime of discharge because we believe il is a good investment. There will bo a Veterans' Administration representative or team in mosl separation centers to explain Ihe advantages of retaining Ihe insurance in civilian life and In collccl premiums in advance." Thc soldier will be approached at a psychological moment, when ho had discharge pay in his pocket. Breining says the Life Insurance Association of the United Slates and the American Life Convention representing about all life insurance companies, approve the government program. 'Private insurance firms learned, in World War I, that the govern- ment program made the mass of servicemen conscious of the value of life insurance," says Breining. "Before thc first war there was in force $25,000,000,000 of private insurance policies. "Then the government sold $39,000,000,000 worth of government insurance. "Despile this, private sales jumped to $40,000,000,000 after the war, in 1921, and reached $155,000,000,000 in 1939." Servicemen have complained because the government policy does nol provide a "lump sum" payment; thc beneficiary receives payment over n period of years. The Veterans Administration wants this provision modified. Age is another reason many veterans advance for not keeping the insurance in force. "The average age is between 24 and 2o years al discharge and [many men say they are loo young to need insurance," Breining said. The government deducts sufficient premium from a soldier's pay, when discharged, to keep the policy in force until the first of the following month. The soldier then has 81 days lo pay another premium and keep the policy. From then on he can make monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual payments.

Yanks Backto Farm System With 14 Clubs By JACK HAND New York, Jan. 25 — (IP)— After !our years of comparative inactiv- ty, the New York Yankees are .going back into the farming business on a I4-club scale with nine scouts to ferret out future DiMag- jios, Gordons and Puffings. The farm system that had dwindled to five clubs during the war las been reorganized on a two- livision basis, spreading into new .erritory at Beaumont in the Texas [.cague and Quincy in the Throe- Eye among others. Piesident Larry MacPhail said -he eastern clubs, under Eugene J. Martin, would operate independently of the western unit under the supervision of Frank Lane. In other words there will be no player- swapping in the middle of a hot jennant race between, say, Newark in the International " League and Kansas City of the American Association, the top western club. I Martin will make headquarters at Newark and will direct the oper-' Hions of Newark, Binghamlon in the Eastern, Augusta In the South Atlantic, Norfolk in the Piedmont, Sunbury, Pa., in the Interstate, 'Vmsterdam, N. Y., in the Canadian-American, Wellsville, N. Y., in -he Pony and Easton, Md., in the Eastern Shore. The western division, with main offices at Kansas City, will include Kansas City, Beaumont, Quincy, Twin Falls, Idaho, in the Pioneer, Joplin, Mo., in the Western Assacialion and Fond DuLac, Wis., in the Wisconsin Statp. Western scouts will be Tom •reenwade, formerly one of Branch Rickey's St. Louis and Brooklyn "bird dogs"; Dutch Lorbeer, ex-Detroit Tigers operative; Joe McDermott, veteran player, official and scout in the St. Louis Cardinals' system; Bill Essick and Joe Devine. Greenwade, Lorbeer and McDermott are new additions. Greenwade will concentrate on the Missouri valley, Lorbeer in the Southwest and McDermott in the North- vyest. Essick and Devine will continue to keep an eagle eye on th Pacific Coast regions. o Aluminum paint is used as a protective medium on balloon fabrics because it excludes heat and light.
