Feb. 4 — Gen. Charles de Gaulle's resignation as president of I France and his "retirement" pre- i sent »n intensely interesting poljti- ' cal situation! for there is wide- ' _spieact belief among observers that I the general merely intends to lie do-~eo until the new constihUion is adopted next June and then come out again for leadership of the republic. Now that's not such ah odd thing as it might seem at first glance As a matter of fact, the «e:ieral appears to be in process of" trving to execute a grand coup of which his "retirement" is the strategic Keystone. If this assumption is correct, then the reasons for it follow along naturally enough.

Patman's comment to a reporter was made in advance of a 1 closed door session of the House Banking Committee (10:30 a. m.

His uniform is furnished free and Kong treats it as tenderly as a freshman with his first tuxedo He is fanatically clean and scrubs himself twice a day to live up to the prestige of his uniform. He works from 8:30 a. m. to 11 n the kitchen stripping beans. From 11 to 4:30 he stands at the door welcoming customers.

O'BRIEN, M.D. Wrltter for NEA Service Local defenses against infections in the upper respiratory tract include the hair, mucus, and cilia, while general resistance 1 factors arc difficult to assay, as immunity following a cold is short and various. The liny hairs or vibrissac located at the entrance of the nasal passages filter out particles of foreign material, while the glands which arc situated throughout the lining membranes of the nose and throat secrete a sticky fluid which covers the surface with a mucous film. There is constant movement of this film from the nose to the throat and as it is renewed approximately every 10 minutes, it is estimated that 75 per cent (if the germs in the air are removed in this manner. The mucous covering also protects the delicate membranccs of the nose from hard particles, as apparently il is next to impossible for bacteria to penetrate tills film and attack the lining membrane unless there is an injury to the nose with exposure of the underlying membrane. The cilia also are a defense against invasion of the respiratory passages by bacteria. When the lining membrane of the nose is examined, the cells are observed to posses microscopic hair-like projections which extend into the nasal cavity. These tiny cilia have a constant wave-like m o t i o n, much like a brec/.e blowing over a field of grain. THROAT THROWS OUT GERMS The cilia also pick up foreign material and bacteria and carry them to the throat where they are expectorated or swallowed. When the material reaches Mie stomach, most of it is destroyed by the digestive juices. In our effort to prevent cold, we should not, interfere with these natural defenses. Nasal sprays, nose drops, gargles, and antiseptics arc cxten sively advertised for prevention of colds. The sale of such preparation is said to run into millions of dollars, in spile of the fact that there is no evidence that any medicine, oil, or antiseptic is of value in preventing colds.

New Slant on Triangle But apparently the war has produced a now version of the domes-. tic triangle in the man who can't] decide which ho prefers, his wife or his . wife wail patienlly to sec which way his roving fancy is going to jump. For to this column have recently come many letters from returned soldiers, and also from their wives, describing this curious situation. While the men wore overseas, or off in camps, they amused themselves by philandering with strange wo- nion, but svrote their wives affectionate, domestic letters that kept the wives from suspecting anything. But when the husbands returned home, the game was up. They are forced to a decision between the two ladies and they don't know to which one to throw the handker chief. The old wife and tho children make a strong appeal, but the other woman also has her allure, and thcv are lorn between them. And what makes the complication grotesque is that they arc asking the Gates of Heaven—For 'Teensters Dear Dorothy Dix: Wo arc a group of teen-a.'.iers and would like you to answer those questions: We know a girl who is completely lacking in morality, yet she has three boy friends to our one.

And, anyway, don't forget that men play around with one type of girls and marry another. And that's what counts. I think a girl of 10 is very foolish when she goes "steady" with a boy.

They should handle their teen-agers more diplomatically. But the reason they do criticize you and advise you is just because they arc so anxious about you.

The 39-year-old owner of a chin of Oregon movies was about the quietest, most Linpretentious, pleasant salesman 1 ever talked to. To hear him tell it, war bonds just sold themselves, or if they didn't then the credit was all due to the war advertising council, or the movie stars, or the radio hawkers, or the thousand-and-one agencies lhal did gratis over-the-counter business in bonds and stamps. It never seemed to occur to him at all that the director of the Wai- Finance Division, which he was, had a thing to do with it. There wasn't anybody who knew more about the complex bond campaign Ihan Gamble did, because he listened to everybody v\'ho had even Ihc slightest contribution to make to Hie job he had been assigned. Ted has gone hojnc lo his the- alcrs, his family and his friends. The real reason he turned down those Hollywood offers is that he has five brothers gelling oul of the service and he wants lo see them started again in civilian life on the right foot. There has been much inside Treasury talk that he may be offered Ihe job of undersecretary. Friends think that if he were urged by Secretary Vinson or the president he would take it. if he's even half willing, it would be a shame We, the Women By RUTH M1LLETT NEA STaff Writer A Dartmouth professor recently indicated that butter comes before books. He said, "yes," to a married student who asKcd: "Can I be excused from class for a few minutes'.' I've just heard they have butler down Ihe street." Apparently he didn't even detain the student the lecture, it's probably because he is trying to remember what he is supposed to take back to his traiier home for dinner, or because he is wondereing if he and his wife are going to be able to pay all the bills out of the Army's $90 a month. o Arkansas Veterans Returning to U.
