FOR NES.. TELEP THAT'S TOUGH.' JrJigh-stfength steel wire—so strong that one straqdj will lift over half a ton without breaking—is one way farm telephone service will be made better and easier to get. Telephone engineers began using this tough telephone wire on rural lines even before the war. Distances between poles, due to its greater strength, jumped from 250 feet or less to as much as 450. The resulting fewer poles meant lower construction costs. Sleet storms —perennial enemy of farm telephone lines- did far less damage, and maintenance expense dwindled. Better construction is only one of the plans telephone engineers have for better farm telephone service. Talking over electric power lines, a new development now undergoing actual field tests, is another; radiotelephones for remote places, a. third. The Bell Telephone System is making every effort to bring you the best rural telephone service possible.

Will Langston, at nearby "" " state will be established in Bavar ia." (Lt. Gen. Sir Frederick E. Morgan, UNRRA chief of Germany, said on .Tan. 2 that thousands of Jews with plenty of money were entering the U. S. zone from the east with a "well organized, positive plan to get out of Europe." He said a secret Jewish organization was behind the movement. (The World Jewish Congress, the World Zionist Organization, the American World Jewish Congress and the American Zionist Emergency Council immediately voiced protests, calling Sir Frederick's report false. (JJNRRA headquarters in Washington called for the Brilish general's resignation, which he refused lo tender. Sir Frederick now is in the United States conferring | with Herbert Lehman, head of lhe j relief agency, who suspended the j request for lhe resignation pending ' th conference. > I In Frankfurt, Judge Simon H. Rifkind, adviser of Jewish affairs lo Gen. Joseph T. McNarney, made this comment on the Third Army report: "It is not true to say these people wanl lo settle in Bavaria.

Mrs. Griffin was in Newport and vicinity a week checking on reports of Lang.slop.'s appearance.

Distress lends to be- spread over the entire abdomen, although usually it is more nolice- ablc in the lower prolion. Irritable bowel patients often say they cannot eat a full meal without experiencing so much distress they have to stop. Belching, grumbling and excessive gas are frequent complaints. Patient;; who complain of bowel distress are usually addicted lo the cathartic hnbil.' The majority believes they can't let a day go by without an evacuation, b;it habitual use of cathartics, laxative foods and enemas further increase the irritably of the bowel .and makes matters worse. Hcadaciu\ fatigue and other symptoms which they ascribe to "constipation" usually •arc caused by nervousness. SHOULD EASE ANIXETY Firsl slep in the relief of irritable bowel is lo relieve' the pa- tienl's anxiely over the possibility that there is some organic disease in the abdimiinl cavity. A history of long duration, coupled with little imparimeiH of general health, rules out organic disease. Further proof Is obtained by special examination of the colon 'with the X-ray and other methods. Cathartics of all kinds and mineral oil should bo discontinued. Most patients are surprised to learn that their bowel returns to normal function after Ihey slop aking medicine. They should not be alarmed if they' do no! tiave an evaculation every day a;:. :his is not necessary for health REST OF VALUE " Rest is of great value in the treatment of an irritable bowel, and in severe cases, complete aecl rest i.s in order. In the average case, an extra hour or two ;,t night, plus a nap or rest period in the afternoon, usually will suffice. At. the height of the distress, applications of heat lo Ihe abdomen are helpful. The diet, .should be adjusted so that irritability of the bowel is relieved as all food.s siiimilili- activity by cither mechanical or chemical factors. Bowel activity is best regulated by varying the amount of cooked vegetable's and cooked fruit in the die',. ijr.igs are occasionally used to relieve bowel spasm and to quiet nervousness, but these should not be continued longer than necessary. Irritable bowel patients should have a thorough understanding of their difficulty so that ai Ihe first sign of trouble they can increase their resl periods and ;;o back on their diet.
