Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington — Strikes cosl Ihe companies money. In most in- slances they cosl the public, tho consumers, considerable deprivation, if not money. But the man who really pays for the strikes 'e they're in progress is the striker. There is a rnther general misconception that the unions pay the strikers while they are making their no-work demonstration. Except in the cases of a few comparatively small old-line unions that have built up tremendous sinke funds, out of which Ihey can pay the strikers a meager $10 to $15 a week, this isn't so. All unions have strike funds. In some instances ('--ose run into millions of do:::-..;-.. Hut unless the local union welfare commillee determines lhat the striker is desperately in need of help, neither he nor his family gets any financial aid. What happens then to a striker 1 ' He draws on his savings. He gets credit. If the strike drags out, he goes on the soup line, provided either by his union or by the local chapters of welfare organizations In the General Motors strike in I Detroit and other cities observers tell me lhat there have been very .few oases of eviction. The landlord i waits for his rent. The grocer- tends credit, not only carrying the striker on his books'but often" contributing to strike kitchens and may pass "out in crowded' places -H the same time. When someone faints he should be laid in a comfortable position. The head should be turned to one side to prevent swallowing of the tongue or vomi- lus. No attempts should be made to force fluids down the throat because of the possibility of as- piralion. The face may bo gently bathed with cold water, but a arge amount of water should not be dashed on tho face. If quick response is not obtained, medical aid should be summoned at once Broadway DINE AT THE CHECKERED- By JACK O'BRIAN ftcw York — Doug Leigh, the young advertising genius who builds most of Broadway's spec- lacular signs, has a new one advertising a cough remedy which will have tho biggest electric lettering on the Main Stem — five stories high at one point..It's'the in.si big postwar electric job ami will be on top of the National Hotel at Broadway and 42nd Streel...11 r'nnfm almo « sl a mile o[ "eon, 60,000 square feet of galvanized i on and .nearly a mile of cable...

Washington, Feb. H—(/P)—A delegation of congressmen from rice producing slates will ask Secretary of Agriculture Clinton 1'. Anderson next Tuesday to make more of the tfiain available in the United States. The meeting was arranged after 20 members of the House, most of them from Louisiana, Arkansas, California and Texas wrote the secretary. They (old him the department's set-aside order, reserving rice for relief needs of other countries, created a situation threatening the future of the American rice industry. The letter said little rice will be available for civilian consumption in the United Slates for aboul seven months, when Ihe new crop comes in. II claimed lhat in making allocations for UNURA and the Philippines the crop had been over-estimated. Thc British government has arranged to get 1,000.000 tons .of rice from-.Slum and to buy the Brazilian surplus. They said Britain may capture the world market and' if domestic producers lose their own ocal markets now, people will turn lo substitute foods and will no!, change back. The committee calling on Secre- .ary Anderson will include representatives Domengeaux and Lar- cadc of Louisiana,' Mills and Nor-•ell of 'Arkansas and Johnson of California. Meanwhile Rep. Larcade has received a telegram from J. Emilc Verret, lieutenant governor and acting governor of Louisiana, saying the government's rice policy is preventing the state from purchasing any rice lo feed inmates of state institutions, including general hospitals and penal and mental institutions. Verrett wants authority lo purchase not leas than 2.000 sacks of lice to meet current needs. Larcade inserted in the congressional record a letter from Secretary Hay A. Tale of the Louisiana Grocers Association criticizing the rice set-aside order. He asked' that it be changed so wholesale distributors located near some of the largest rice millers in the world" can buy. This letter said the order of Dec. 2!). 194f) reduced southern set- asidcs from 40 to 35 per cent but actually made conditions worse because sales lo territories are not included jn the quotas, although lormerly they were.

II is only in rare cases that a sinker lakes a temporary job during' a strike .Within a union this is irowned upon. He doesn't loaf He works on Ihe picket lines or otherwise does strike chores but he doesn't get paid for it. . Life, health, hospital and other insurance benefits must be met by the Finking workers. In a few instances the companies maintain Uie worker's share of these payments, taking it out of the pay of the sinker after he returns to the It's apparent that any worker who has been on strike for any length oi time is going to have to work months and maybe longer dan that to make up for his ac- ciued debts. This is something union oilicials don't o care 1o talk aboul. When they discuss it at all they admit oil' Ihe record thai some injustices result, but thai in the long run it's a question of the greatest good lor the grealesl number. The workers, I'm told, aren't par tieularly distrubed by this monetary inequity. They ligure that it may take them a year lo make up lor losses incurred by a strike, but that Ihe increase in pay eventually will mean enough lo compensate for whatever they have had to put out. Williamsburg, Va., Feb. 8 —(/P)— Senator J.W. Fulbright (D-Ark) declared in a Charter Day address at the College of William- and Mary today that it is particularly the responsibility of Americans to understand and lo take Iho lead in the creation of a peaceful world." Speaking in Phi Beta Kappa hall, Senator Fulbright said that "not only is it to our selfish material interests, because we have more to lose by the choas than any other people, but il is also our moral duty to give direction and strength to the bewildered innnnle of this earth who are groping helplessly for peace ana a ciccc-ni iul ''My point is simply that tho absolute and fundamental requirement for an orderly and peaceful sociely of human beings is rules ot conduct enforced by the community as against all" its members. No olher principle ha--, ever brought peace to any substantial group of men . "Rules of conduct can be established over peoples in two ways, either by force or by «>rree- ment. To do it by force .means persistence and successful warfare until one nation imposes its will on all others, l-or us to follow this policy is unwise and unlikely •and contrary to our traditions'. To do it by agreement is in accord with our traditional beliefs and practices." 1 '; , . ', ; 0 : '—'.

The woman Thou gavest mo, she did it, has been man's alibi for all his shortcomings over since time began, and it still works. You never hear a man admit that he has a constitutional weakness, or that he went wrong of his'own volition. Always he was inveigled into taking the downward path by some conscienceless female. Apparently women's influence works better in reverse than it does going forward, for to hear men tell it they would all be pin-feathered angels and rich and happy and successful if it were not for women. When a man makes a fool marriage, it isn't because he was temporarily infatuated with a pretty lace. The girl worked some kind of a hocus-pocus on him that got him to the altar without his knowing what he was doing. Perpetual Scapegoat If a man fights with his wife, she is solely to blame. If a man drinks, he is driven to It by his wife's nagging. If a man goes broke in business, it isn't because of his bad judgment. It was his wife's extravagance. If a man is lazy and trifling, it is not because he was born loo tired to work. It is because his wife has killed all of his initiative. If a man is a philanderer who chases every pretty girl who crosses his path, it is because his wife doesn't understand him. And so on and so on. Thus it will 'be easily seen how gN -______- \vomen ore really responsible for all the bad breaks of meh. But when you put the shoe on the other foot, it is not. quite so clear how much men are to blame lor women's faults. Or. it may be tfiat women don't pass the buck quite so publicly as men do. * ' Undoubedly the greatest feminine weakness to which men are apcps- sory is vanity. Men have taught women, by precept and example, that beauty is more imp6rtant;to them than brains, or character, : or a good disposition, or bein| a go'od cook, or any other one thing. Tills causes millions of women to. spend their time, their money and their energy in beauty shops trying Jo'be made over into something that will catch the eyes of men, and that makes many a one of them sell Her soul for a handful of clothes. Another fault in women for which men are directly responsible is insincerity. Men will .not stand for honesty and frankness in women and no truthful Jane ever had a date play a return engagement. Men want women to flattei them, to yes-yes them, to tell them how big and strong and wonderful they are, and anyone who doesn't do it had just as well reserve her room in the old maids' retreat. ' And worst of all the feminie faults which men aid and abet is slackness. In making girls feel that they don't have to prepare themselves for life because they expect to get married and let George do it. which is one of the main causes of divorce: For there can be no successful home unless the wife is as good at her job as-the husband is at his. But to argue over which sex is the more to blame for the other's faults is futile. Each thinks the other is. us. By DOROTHY STALEY Ihey. Cried Copyright 1946, NEA Service, Inc. The Story: Stephen Willson tells Nana something will have to be done about Pliillipa, that he will have to find some way out of 1he impossible situalion ,ior Flelch. Later. Andrew Stites says: "I want you to remember, Nana, that whatever I have done, I have done for Jenny." XII After Andrew Stites went off to bed, I had some notion of waiting for Fletch; but when T heard the clock in the town striking 12 I decided not to sit up any'longed As I climbed tho stairs (o my room the incongruous thought, "and the morning and the evening were Ihe lirsl clay" went through my head. I am not one to think in scrip- lure texts, and I don't know why I did then. And yet that whole day had seemed to be something set aparl. a lime for all the seething, turbulent unddr-cover emotions to rush lo Ihe surface, and 1 had Ihe feeling lhat it was only the beginning. A train went through the valley, its whistle shrieking widly, and it seemed to me to fill the quiet house with its banshee wail, and the walls seemed lo echo. Or was il a similar wild,, uncontrolled something in the house answering whatever it was that lay in the valley? I couldn't sleep: if anything, it- was holler than it had ' been all day and now lo Ihe weird, screaming of Iho whistles.-in.),hel valley was added the dull rumbla of fiislanl thunder, the kind that Flotch when he was small had insisted was the rumbling of the ten pins of Rip Van Winkle's little men; and as I lay there stretched laul on my bed, I Ihoughl indeed it might bo. There was something about it, like Ihe sounds in Iho valley, that was unnatural. I heard a car scattering gravel on the drive and a car door slam and I wondered whether it was Fletch or Pliillipa.

Then there were two voices whispering and silence. :;t fi ;:; I didn't intend to fall asleep. Thai's one of the meanest tricks old ago plays on you. You can't sleep when you intend to and you fall asleep when you don't want to. It was the closing of a window that woke me and as I opened my eyes. 1 didn't know for an instant'wheth- er il was wraith or human that I saw. But it was only Betsy in her while dress. 1 asked the inevitable question oi every one wakened from sleep. "Is lhat vou. Retsv?" She said, "Yes. Nana. I came in to close your windows. It's storming." Thc last statement was superfluous for at lhat moment 1 think ;ill heaven and earth opened up. I supposed it was that which made Betsy seem so breathless. "What time is it?" I asked. "Somethnig after one," she answered. "Aren't you home early?" Her voice faltered a little, "I was tired. I wanted to come home." Perhaps it should have seemed si range lo me that young, gay. fun- loving Eelsy should be tire'd and ready to come home at one when knowing Ann and Fred Quillman and their crazy-kind of parties, I hadn't expected her before five: but her answer just seemed lo fit in with all of that emotion-torn day. The silver-steel lightning was now clawing at the highest arch of the sky, and the thunder was a continuous frustrated bellowing, to which the whole house seemed to reverberate. I lay there on my bed, watching the storm, watching Belsy with her face pressed close to inv window looking out over the rock gardens. '.'' J!i ft As the storm continued to rage some of the inner stress which I had been fooling seemed to lessen, and I wondered if it were the same with the rest of my family; if Ihe fury of the elements were making the fury of their emotions seem "•inv and worthless. At that instant there was a mounting crescendo of tnunder and then a crash of lightning thai turned the whole world outside my window into a vast shell of fire. "Dear God!" I cried. "Belsy, come away from that window 1 " 'l had taught both children, just as I had taught my Miss Jenny, to be unafraid of storms, lo admire Ihe beauty of the lightning, lo hear the music of the thunder, but this was loo much. "Thai lightning struck somewhere near," Betsy said shakily, -and stooping to lay her face against mine for a moment, she went on to her own room. It was several minutes before I realized that the moisture on her cheek could not have been caused by the rain. The window was closed. The storm continued for a while after tnai and then rumbled off somewhere beyond the horizon. I got up and opened my windows; Ihe air was cool and sweet and everything was quiet. Somehow I felt akin to Ihe earth; as though I too had been swept by a storm, which had held me trembling, and now was left to rest. I heard Betsy opening her window and in other pai Is of the house I could hear windows being opened lo the cool breezes and I wondered if the rest of my family felt the same way. I went back lo bed and lo immediate deep, peaceful sleep. i To Be Continued) o Arkansas Veterans Returning to U.
