Dewey was optimistic over the prospects of settling the last major labor dispute in the automotive industry, saying that "from my standpoint, the first day was satisfactory." In his statement asking a "truce" in the strike while negotiations continue, Anderson said that a new GM-UAW contract must include provisions assuring uninterrupted production, efficiency and better union-management relations.

Officers Used cisTarqets By DANIEL DeLUCE Nuernberg, Jan. 31 — (/P) — A German officer used a group of unarmed American prisoners of war for target practice as a prelude to the cold-blooded execution of 129 captured soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge last winter, the international military tribunal was told today. The French prosecution introduced a statement by Belgian ci- u't'Mi-'s describing the massacre, which occured at a crossroads near Saint Vith on Dec. 12, 1944. The Americans, defending the crossroads against a Nazi offensive, took to tne ditches as German tanks approached, the statement said, and the tanks fired into the ditches until Ihe Americans threw down their guns and raised their hands in surrender. They were led to a field a short distance away, where the Germans searched each man, tatting watches, rings and other personal effects, the statement confmued. Then a German armored vehicle was rolled up and its guns trained on the group of prisoners. A Nazi officer mounted on the vehicle drew his pistol, aimed at the group and fired. One of the prisoners fell, the statement said. He aimed and fired again. Another American fell. As the second man went down, the statement went on, the machine guns on the armored vehicle opened up and sprayed lead for two or three minutes. Then the vehicles moved on and three others rolled pasl, machine gunning the knot of men, most of them already dead. Later, German soldiers walked among the Americans, finishing off the wounded, said. the statement "The soldiers struck them with gun butts or fired from a short dis tance into their temples o- between their eyes," the document asserted.

COMING SUNDAY — WEEKEND WALDORF NGUJ FRIDAY SATURDAY BOB STEELE m rr KID RANGER rr The Doctor Says: By WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service The possibility of infection with other nose and throat germs is decreased and the attack shortened if the congestion, swelling and watery discharge of the nose in the common colds is relieved, according lo H. S. Diehl, M. D., and associates, University of Minnesota. Go to bed when you have a cold and slay there until you are well is good advice, as you protect others from exposure and shorten your illness. Any measure which increases the blood flow to the skin haS a tendency to dry up the nose. A hot bath is a good early treatment for a cold, and If it is followed by rest in bed with sufficient coverings to prevent cooling, the cffecl is prolonged and temporary lo permanent benefit is obtained. Body massage also brings the blood tto the surface and has an effect similar to a hot bath. EXCERISE MAY HELP Favorite prescription of many people ot go to bed with a box of disposable tissue nearby nnff to drink lots of fluids — water, lemonade, orange juice and others. The theory back of this practice is that the water eliminates wastes products and toxins from the body. There is no basis for this assumption. Extra water is indicated if there is excessive fluid loss from swcaling or fever, but not for any other reason. A few years ago, the Health Service of the University of Minnesota conducted an experimental study in the treatment of the common cold. When the diagnosis was made, the attending physician wrote a prescription for cold medication which was filled by Ihe pharmacist with one of the cold remedies under investigation. After 48 hours of treatment, the patient reported the result on a card he carried for this purpose. REMEDY PROVES BENEFICIAL Control medicine was milk sugar which was given to find out how many students recovered from a cold spontaneously. It Frank Ward.

Marks of Dai- las. was learned that 35 per cent of the students who received sugar tablets without thicr knowledge reported improvement of their colds within 48 hours. Aspirin, soda or quinine gave but little better result (37 to 50 per cent), while most of the advertised cold remedies were in the class with the sugar tablets. Result was that a remedy containing codeine and papavrine was found to be of greatest benefit. Of the 1500 students who were given this perparation, 72 per cent reported definite improvement or complete relief within 24 lo 48 hours. Shirley Temple's Husband. Out of Army, Heads Home Fort Douglas, Utah, Jan/30~^(/!')— Handsome, husky John G. Agar traded his sergeant's chevrons for a new certificate of honorable discharge yesterday and took "the quickest way I, know" back to Los Angeles lo spend his 251)1 birthday anniversary tomorrow with his charming actress-wife, the grown-up Shirley Temple. Maj. Earl G. Linhart handed the certificate to Agar at the Fort Doublas Separation Center, and the former prep school athlete said, "this is a nice birthday ''present I'm getting from the army." A few hours later a Western Air Lines plane was speeding him toward h i s Southern California home. As Agar reached the end of the separation lines, hc was 'friendly with interviewers but evasive particularly in the discussion of future plans. What about a possible 1 ' movie test? "No, sir," he-responded with -a grin. "One in :thc' family is enough." He said athletics are more his line. A football, basketball and track star at Pawling, a preparatory school in New York, he said he might "go back to school—maybe U.S.C. or U.C.L.A.—I just don't know now." Questions and Answers Q—Can a single seimograhp pot the epicenter of an earthquake? A—Not reliably, since a single recording may be off as much as 180 degrees. But recordings from three separately located instruments make it possible to strike inersecting arcs, .and thus plot the temblor's location. DOROTHY DIX Virtue of Graciousness Perhaps there is no other one I or.,s;iy ill " x You smije'.when say th'a-l," <says the gunman in quality that pays its lucky possessor such heavy dividends as graciousncss, but it is a virtue that we rearly cultivate in ourselves, or .each our children. Yet it is the explanation of the mystery of why one ndividual is sought after in society, while another,.just a.s good- ooking and clever, is ignored; of why one man or woman is a success and another, with just as much ibility, is a failure. P'or it is;i'l what people do to us or say to us that makes us like them or dislike them. It is the wav they do i "' "" '• " ' you .he western story "to the^chap who iad just called him a so-and-so, and that goes everywhere in lifer We will take home truths and criticisms and corrections from one person, and thank him. for them and profit by them, whereas we would nate another to our dying day for even suggesting that we had a fault or weakness. The difference would be that one sugar-coated a bitter pill with graciousness and the other one didn't. No Reward for Ungracious What makes the lack of graciousness so unfortunate is that the people who do not have it are just as kind and good and worthy in all respects as those who arc suave and tactful, yet the ungracious never gel the reward in love and gratitude to which they arc entitled. They spoil their good deeds by the way they do them. A classic example of this is the hostess who always prefaces her invitation by saying: "I told my husband the other day that we just must have you to dinner. That it was a shame that we had neglected you so long." And, although you know that the lady is a marvelous housekeeper and that her food, is something to be eaten on your knees, it makes you want to throw her invitation back in her teeth and tell her you are not on the bread line yet. All of us have had presents given us so grudgingly and with so many reminders that it was just out of duty that they were an insult instead of a pleasure, and loft a bitter taste in our mouths instead of a sweet morsel of appreciation fercncc and often rudeness. And in the domestic relationship graciousncss is equally effective. The husbands and wives who live together in peace and harmony and who have authority over their children are those who have the gift of smoothing the family fur the right way instead of gelling in its hair.

The Story:) Arrogantly beautiful Phillips Willson, Flelch's wife, announces to the gathered Willson clan that she has sent her small twin sons away so that they will not have to march in the town's Independence Day parade. This is an annual affair, sponsored by the Willson fainily who own the Willson mills. Phillipa's gesture is one of defiance toward her in-laws. Nana, family governess of many years' standing, overhears old Mr. Willson asking his secretary, Dru Ellis, if she thinks he could buy Phillipa off. IV There was a deep silence for a moment and then Dru's voice, sounding thick and heavy, "No, I don't believe you could." "Well, why not?" Mr. Willson is very fond of Dru Ellis, but when he is worried, he lashes out at her irritably. Dru understands that. She told me once about three years ago, "I'm just the backstop." When I looked puzzled, she laughed and said, "Hasn't anyone ever taken you to a baseball game'.'" Dru and I went the next Saturday afternoon and when Fletch found we were going, he came along too. They showed me the backstop and made me stand up and stretch after the seventh inning and drink soda and Fletch laughed more that afternoon than he had for a long time. Now Dru was answering Mr. Willson patiently and slowly as she does when he is irritated, "She likes being in the Willson family." "Likes being in the family! Didn't you hear her at breakfast? 1 could pay her to stay away from Fletch and the boys. Ten thousand dollars a year ought to interest her." Dru said. "She wouldn't take it. She likes being 'young Mrs. Willson.' She likes coming into the mills and being superior to the girls who worked with her there. She likes calling Miss Newhall and saying 'This is Mrs. Willson, Mrs. Fletcher Willson. Will you please get my husband for me"."' Dru sounded exactly like Phillipa when she said that. "Or she likes to call me and say 'Drusilla, my maid is leaving. Will you please put an ad in for another?' There is a lot of satisfaction in that for Phillipa. I suppose because the girls didn't like her when she worked in the office. She was too superior to have any friends among them, and yet she resented their not following her. She was ambitious. She would liked to have had my job. I wish 1 had let her have it." Dru gave a bitter little laugh. Mr. Willson fairly shouted, "I wish to God you had, too. and you had married P'letch." I heard the screen door on the French windows slam and I could see Mr. Willson tramping angirly toward the woods path that leads over to the farm. Mr. Willson so rarely loses his temper that 1 stared after him in amazement, i^nd consequently 1 was not immediately aware of the sobbing in the other room.)

What is wrong with women in an age when they hace a chance at education, the rights of citizenship, and good job opportunities, that they feel no real responsibility for what happens in the world? KITCHEN OR CAREER? Is this refusal to be mature, responsible, working citizens, due to some fundamental lack within women for which there is no help? Or is it because they have been faulity educated? Or is it because they are too afraid of men's disapproval to show an interest in anything less "feminine" than the jobs connected with homemaking? Not a few intelligent men believe that women, if they put their minds to it, could help immeasurably to make a better world.

I just put my hand on her hair and waited and after a while she looked up and whispered brokenly, "I wish to God I had too, Nana."' I didn't know what to say, so I just stroked her hair and after a bit I said, "1 didn't know, Dru. I didn't know." She laughed bitterly, "That makes us even, Nana. I didn't know either—until it was too late. She was what I thought Fletch i wanted. And I thought she would | make him happy." A sob got mixed up with her words at that point, but she swallowed it, "And that was what I wanted—Fletch to be happy. I didn't know that she didn't care about him—only the name and the money, And now she has both and she isn't even sport enough to work for them." We neither of us said anything for a few minutes -a'n'd : then : Di'u said, "He never laughs'any 'more. He's heartsick about "the boys. ' She— she's making ''-them' everything!

I didn't mind her taking him from me, but I hate her for what she is doing to him and the boys. I could kill her. Nana." She turned and beat the typewriter with her clenched hands. "I could kill her!" All I could say was "Hush, child. Hush." * * * 1 left her there in the library and went back to my mending, but when the typewriter slopped clicking again 1 got up and went to the doorway to see what was wrong. "It's only Fletch," I thought, which only goes to prove how idle thoughts can be. He was saying, "You won't have to go to the mill. Dru. 1 got the mail." He stopped speaking and cupped his hand under her chin and turned her face up lo the ilght. He said, "Why. Dru, you've been crying." Then 1 knew before he thought, lie added. > "Don't cry, darling.

Why didn't you see this?" j Fletch bent his head and kissed j Dru gently on her forehead where the tawny hair swept back from the brow. Then he swung on his heel and left the room. i I thought, "Well! This is certainly the morning for abrupt exits." First one and then another was charging off. But then 1 realized why Fleldi had left so suddenly, j Nothing had been said between these two. Nothing would be.
