Bulk of ad ' ' Luxury of Friendship Friendship'is another ., „.. svhich Ihe poor have a practical monopoly. The rich soon grow cynical and hard because their-trust is betrayed so often. So many of the hands that are held out to them-in the guise of friendship have itching palms. So much professed affection is only a camouflage for greed thai they are afraid to give their hearts to anyone. .It is only the poor, who have nothing to'gain except comradeship from each other, who can know the'true lux- L11- y friendship. . 11 is only poor children who ever enjoy the luxury of having parents.

Work is still another luxury on which (he poor have a priority. To «do Ihc work that absorbs one's time und thought and energy, to create, to build, to do something with one's brans and hands thai is worth while—tHat is the one infallible source of happiness that never fails, mil il is a luxury in .vhich Ihe rich (ire seldom privileged to indulge They, poor souls, are reduced "lo lho sad expedienl of boondoggling of taking up hobbies in which they have no real interest, of playing games that bore them, of killing time, which is lhc hardest Work in the world.

Those who have a dozen palaces in which Ihey sncnd n few weeks during Ihe year arc as homeless as any nomad who wanders over the desert.

You must have offered yourself up as a sacrifice on ils allar before 1 it becomes truly a home, the dearest place on earth. Il is 'one : of'life's little ironies that as the old proverb puts it; we never know when we are well off, and so we fail to realize thai we are tolling in luxuries that money cannot' buy, while we are pitying ourselves because we haven't the price taxes, income tax and. insurance tax remain to be paid''in to the stale for distribution.

To contest every presidentia appointment thai is vulnerable i good politics. If the appointee ha enemies in his own party — vote thai might go against him to mak up'a majority —he hasn't a chanc ot even getting the Senate com mittee approval without a vigoi ous going over.

S. Ships By WILLIAM F. ARBOGASY Washington, Feb. 15 — (/p) — China's postwar navy may have as its beginning 271 small American ships, if Congress gives il approval. Six destroyer-escorts are the argest vessels on the list Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) of the House Naval Commitce made public today. While the navy weeks ago asked ongress to give the president sower to transfer surplus ships to China, Vinson's announcement of the actual numbers and types was tne first disclosure of details. The Georgian gave reporters the nformalion as he urged the Rules Committee to clear the "Chinese navy" bill for House action next weeK. The Naval Committee already has approved the bill, which would Jliow me president lo furnish the vessels to China either by sale, ex- :hange, lease, gift' or Iransfer, and o provide Ihe necessary training ind technical personnel. Vinson emphasized lhat the measure prohibits transfer of battleships, carriers, cruisers, destroyers or submarines without express approval of Congress. .Besides the six D-E's on the navy's list, he said the ships the ^resident "may" want to transfer nclude: Six buoy and light lenders, 217 anding craft of various types, six notpr gunboats, four 130-foot submarine shasers, six 173-foot submarine chasers, ten 110-foot subma- ine cnasers, three oilers, one surveying ship, two repair ships, two mating drydocks and eight motor nine sweepers or submarine hasers. "China does not require a large iaval force, but China has no laval force at all," Vinson said. 'This bill will enable the president to supply China with a part f her immediate naval needs." These include, he added, facili- to sweep minefields from the a coast, to deport Japanese lationals-from China, and to trans- sort Chinese troops, civilians and nerchandise.

Zern looked at her and wrinkled ™ s forehead again. "No? Is this? And there was Miss Betsy with the heavy poker in her hand, screaming at Mrs. Fletcher to get out. I was that surprised-' " Betsy raised her chin and met Zern s eyes levelly. "That," she at the said, "is quite true."

Dru can hold her head up as proudly as Betsy, with Hist a hint pi arrogance and a bit of contempt for creatures like Zern. "Of what?" she asked. But Zern had the last word, Murder—or an indiscretion " "Dru, Dru," I thought, "I can •"•mi-pciate your wanting to shield Jf letch, but you aren't making things any boiler." But Zern wasn't flustering Dru. 'Neither," she answered Zern, in such a tone that he began to look uncomfortable and then relieved when Straub interrupted from the doorwav of the morning-room, "You'll have to lav that hold-up theory of yours on ihe table chief." Ho smiled broadly at all ot us. "The car's beeii lound." Straub's voice had the triumphant note in it that comes only when you have proved yourself to be right "With an empty gas lank, out with the windows closed and the whole car locked." Jeffrey spoke quietly, "Where are the kevs?" Answerable to n Washington. Feb. 16 — (ff)— Gen Omar Bradley said today he rejected; invitations to a meeting of the American Legion's executive committee because he did not think he "should be put on trial by any one group." The veterans administrator told of the rejection at a news conference called to discuss- the VA's $448,000,'0go hospital building program which he described as "the riibst gigantic" in history. The Igeiqn committee will meet tomorrow-*dn- Indianapolis to study Commander John Stelle's demands for- a congressional investigation of .what he' calls a "tragic breakdown" Bradley reiterated at his Straub shook his head. "We got to find the keys yet. Probably in the rock garden somewhere. We'll have to make a more thorough search there yet." 'Where was Ihe car?"

He lold reporters, in reviewing aid to sick and'wounded war vet- rans, that VA is now oprating 98 nospilals with a capacity of 83,339 and compllion of the $448,000,000 program will push the number to 183 with a capacity of 151,500. Army engineers, he announced, will help witlv the construction which he estimated would require 18 months to two years for completion. Three of the new hospitals are now being erectee, he said. —— o Daily Bread Continued from Page One flee surely knew that it would not be a popular move, and it wasn't But he made it. In the matter of industrial controls, Mr. Truman must have pleased labor when he encouraged .heir requests for wage increases He must have pleased industry to some extent by removing: the government dam from the free flow of naterials. , .... . ... But now we find ourselves being nidged toward inflation by general wage rises which are forcing a rise n prices. We find ourselves short of various goods because price con- rol has not taken inlo account all he factors lhat go to make up jrices, with lhc result that many nanul'aclurers are holding back hose goods rather than sell them it a loss. As for Mr. Truman's loyalty, we ind it illustrated in his continued upport of Edwin W. Pauley, whom e nominated to be Undersecre- ary of the Navy. Secretaiy Ickcs as testified thai Mr. Paiiley al- empled lo bribe him. Mr. Pauley as denied this. Mr. Truman say's is nominee is "an honest man nnd n excellent administrator." Be thai as il may, il is clear to Imost everyone except Mr. Trunan that Mr. Pauley's background s a^big oil man does not fil him Hi" Nayv inb. and «-onld condemn him constant suspicion. Mr. Truman has acted everywhere with the besl of intcntioji's. No one can accuse him of being devious or malicious. But it doos seem that he is making a wishful | attempt to launch an era of good j will when the lime isn't ripe, and when the public servant in the White House needs to be not only wise, but more than a lillle hard-boiled. ,,,"'r-"""f of Elders and Deacons, Wednesday night—7:30 in the Philalhea room when Elders elect and Decaons elect will be instructed prior to their ordination and installation as a later date You are cordially invited lo worship with us.

It already is being freely predicted that the opposition will contest heatedly the appointments of George Allen to the Reconstruction Finance Corp. and .Tamos H. Vardaman, Jr., to a 14-year term on the Federal Reserve Bank board. W. Stuart Symington, recently appointed assistant secretary of' war, went through his baptism of confirmation fire when he was named Surplus Property Administrator. It isn't often that the opposition is able to defeat one of the President's appointments. The President confers with his loaders in the Senate before he makes them.
